Call it a pair of baby Corleones...or a pair of Griswolds.

Either way, there are two of 'em. Iconic actor Al Pacino and actress-girlfriend Beverly D'Angelo are the proud parents of twins, a boy and a girl, their publicist announced.

D'Angelo gave birth to the babies Thursday in Los Angeles. Both weighed about five pounds and were healthy, said publicist Pat Kingsley, who dispensed no other details about the births.

It's the first foray into motherhood for D'Angelo, 46, who's been with the 60-year-old Pacino for the past few years, after she divorced Italian Duke Lorenzo Salviati in 1995. Pacino has one daughter, Julie Marie (born in 1989), from a previous relationship with Jan Tarrant.

Pacino's had a fulfilling week. On Sunday, the thespian was given the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award for his career achievement in films like The Godfather (playing mafia scion Michael Corleone), Scarface and The Insider. Pacino won an Oscar for his role as the blind, retired colonel in 1992's Scent of a Woman.

D'Angelo first gained fame for her work in films like Woody Allen's Annie Hall and the Loretta Lynn biopic Coal Miner's Daughter, in which she played country singer Patsy Cline. D'Angelo also will be forever known as the long-suffering wife of Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) in the Vacation movies.

Only a matter of time before she and Pacino start taking the twins to Wallyworld.
