Jane Seymour is a name synonymous with grace, talent, and timeless beauty in the world of entertainment. Renowned for her versatile acting career, the 72-year-old has graced the screens with her exceptional performances for decades.
Though, aside from being a Hollywood icon, Seymour is also an author and a dedicated mother.
In fact, she has navigated the challenges and joys of motherhood, including the unique experience of raising twin sons.
Seymour, who has been married and divorced four times, is the proud mother of Katherine, 41, and Sean Flynn, 38, from her marriage to David Flynn. She also shares her twin sons, John Stacy and Kristopher Steven, 27, from her marriage to filmmaker James Keach.
Journey to motherhood
Seymour’s journey to motherhood had many hurdles, with the actress candidly sharing to People that in-vitro fertilization led to two miscarriages, nearly causing her and her then-husband, Keach, to abandon their hopes. However, her third pregnancy, aged 44, proved to be a success, resulting in the birth of her twin sons, John and Kristopher.
The boys were premature, born six weeks early via an emergency C-section due to pre-eclampsia. Given this, the twins faced challenges from the very start. The pregnancy and birth were fraught with risk, and Seymour and the twins narrowly escaped a tragic outcome. She revealed in an interview with Loose Women: “I nearly died having them, and the babies nearly died.”
However, Seymour has never regretted taking that risk, stating: “I’m very glad I had them.” The twins’ premature birth meant they needed to be meticulously monitored during their early days. Seymour revealed that both boys had health issues, with Johnny even turning blue on two occasions after returning home from the hospital.
This prompted their return to the hospital where their breathing, swallowing, and sucking were monitored. Seymour’s was clearly committed to her twins’ health.
She made choices that allowed her to be fully present for her children, often taking them along with her while she was filming. As the twins continued to grow, they not only became stronger but also developed a deep bond. Seymour revealed that they loved sleeping in the same crib and later shared the same bed.
Recently, Seymour shared a heartwarming picture of herself with her now-grown twin sons, who, according to her fans, have grown tall and handsome, towering over her. Admirers flooded the post with affectionate comments, saying: “Love this Jane. The boys are so handsome, and you look beautiful.”
Others chimed in, adding: “Two handsome men! And a beautiful mother!” The praise continued with comments like “Handsome sons!” and “Your boys are handsome.”
The outpouring of love persisted with remarks such as: “How beautiful you three are!” and “They look just like their dad. Handsome men.”
Seymour’s journey as a mother to twins, with its challenges and triumphs, serves as a testament to the strength of a mother’s love.
Even now, as her tall and handsome twin sons stand above her, she continues to celebrate the joys of parenthood and the enduring power of love.
