Actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon and husband Michael Nilon welcomed twin boys, her rep tells PEOPLE.

Jax Joseph Nilon was born at 8:30 p.m. Oct. 18 and weighed 4 lbs. 7 oz., and Jaid Thomas Nilon was born at 8:31 p.m. and weighed 4 lbs. 9 oz.

"We're so in love with them," Beauvais-Nilon tells PEOPLE. "They boys are just gorgeous."

The twins, who were born in Los Angeles, join Oliver, the actress's 15-year-old son from a previous marriage.

Friends such as Angie Harmon and Virginia Madsen have already showered the boys with gifts, including individual outfits from Janie & Jack and Gymboree.

"She wants to establish each twin's own identity," says a friend who attended the actress's baby shower last month. "She doesn't want to dress them up the same."

Beauvais-Nilon announced her pregnancy last June to PEOPLE, saying, "We are over the moon and feel very blessed."

The actress, who has appeared in TV's NYPD Blue and The Jamie Foxx Show, was last seen in the thriller I Know Who Killed Me, starring Lindsay Lohan and Julia Ormond. She also posed nude while pregnant in the August issue of Playboy.

Her husband is an agent for Creative Artists Agency.

The couple wed in a private ceremony in Los Angeles in May 2001.
