Alvarez, 38, gave birth to a boy and girl via Caesarean section in a U.S. hospital in the early hours of Wednesday (02Dec15), reports Hola! magazine.

Salinas was not present for the delivery as he was working in Mexico City, but he was able to watch the birth via video and he later travelled to be by his wife's side and meet their newborns.

The couple met and fell in love on the set of 2008 telenovela Fuego En La Sangre and married in 2011.

The babies are Salinas' second set of twins - he has 10-year-old boys Santiago and Jorge with his ex-wife Fatima Boggio, while he is also a dad to 20-year-old daughter Gabriela, from his romance with actress and TV presenter Adriana Catano, and nine-year-old girl Valentina, who was conceived during an affair with actress Andrea Noli.

Salinas, 47, split from Boggio in 2009 after 13 years of marriage.
