JEDWARD have revealed they are helping their friend to have twins of her own through IVF treatment.
The singing duo said this is “the best gift [they] could give her” as they revealed they also hoped to have twins of their own some day.
Edward said: “It’s great that there has been an increase in twins and it’s actually crazy because our friend wants us to help her have twins via IVF.
“As her friends that’s the best gift we could give her and I think it is great that there is twins and who knows, maybe the Royal family will also have twins in the future.
“And the thing about it is, people who use IVF are really struggling to have kids and what better than to have to have two kids that also brings a lot of happiness and connects families and I feel two is always better than one.”
John and Edward Grimes told how they have been saving their clothes from when they were younger so their future children can recreate some of their looks.
‘MODERN DAY MIRACLE’
John and Edward Grimes told BBC Breakfast: “Twins run in our family – our granddad’s brothers, Pat and Henry they were twins.”
John continued: “And maybe fingers crossed we can have our own twins someday and be great dads and spread the twin love.”
Edward said: “We literally have clothes for them from like 10 to 30, we’re going to be 30 this year it’s literally crazy.”
John added:”We kept all of our clothes from when we were younger as twins.”
Jedward told how they think twins are “a modern day miracle as they bring a lot of joy and interest” into the world.
The X-factor stars told viewers they felt “very lucky” to be twins.
Commenting on finishing each other’s sentences, John said: “We share the same vision creatively so we know the main message we want to put across even when we’re on stage no matter if we’re writing songs or music whatever it is, so he has his parts, I’ve my parts.”
Edward continued: “I think it’s nice going through life as a twin because you know all the pressure isn’t always on you you always have some fall back, to back you up, and even on stage, I know that everyone’s not just looking at me they’re maybe looking at John.”
John added: “Or if someone’s singing Happy Birthday, you know you’re not the centre of attention, you’re a team, you’re doing it together.”
Edward explained that it was sometimes difficult growing up with a twin as they struggled to “grow as [their] own person”.

He said: “It’s kind of hard to have your own identity growing up so sometimes it’s nice to go off by yourself and grow as your own person because growing up, going to school, doing all the same classes, it’s nice just to see who you are as a person.
“It’s really hard being twins because I don’t think I could live this life if John wasn’t there”.
John added: “I feel like there’s more pros than cons being twins, I feel we’re like Batman and Robin taking on the world together no matter what.”
