Just call it good old fashioned jealousy.

The 44-year-old newlywed says she feels so blessed to be pregnant for the first time with twins at her age.

Hasn't she admitted to using ART though? I thought she had.....

I hadn't heard whether she used ART or not, but I would bet my husband she did.

Little green monster is over here, too.

She as much as said that she had not only used ART, she'd used donor eggs... here's the story

LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Marcia Cross is expecting twins.

The 'Desperate Housewives' actress announced earlier this month that she and her stockbroker husband Tom Mahoney were expecting their first child together next April.

Yesterday (21.09.06) it was revealed that the 44-year-old redhead, who underwent IVF (in-vitro fertilization) treatment to conceive, is carrying twins.

Cross - who plays uptight Bree Van de Kamp in the hit US show - has previously spoken out about the issue of fertility in older woman.

She said: "I don't like the average woman being misled into thinking that fertility is something that goes on forever. When a woman gets older, they get a donor egg, which doesn't make the baby any less beautiful or perfect. One's own eggs only last so long, and sometimes at 43 or 44 you can have your own baby, but statistically it's very difficult and expensive. You don't want to wait that long."

Cross is not the only celebrity in Hollywood expecting twins. Diddy and his long-time girlfriend Kim Porter recently revealed they too are expecting a double birth.

I don't mind when good things happen to people, but there is only so much I can take. Let's see: beautiful, rich, talented and now pregnant with twins. She should have to give up one to get a new one, don't you think?

Doesn't matter a bit to me how she got pregnant. She is my age and she is pregnant; that's enough to engage the jealousy meter.

Yeah, I don't care what she used or did... damn.

Sadly I suspect I could live to be 100 and I'm still going to be jealous when I hear stories of babies. *sigh*
