A Cuban couple who played twin siblings in the movie Una Noche are set to become parents - to twins.

Javier Nunez Florian and Anailin de la Rua de la Torre fled from their homeland and sought political asylum in the U.S. en route to last year's Tribeca Film Festival in New York, where Nunez Florian picked up a Best Actor award.

The 21 year olds fell in love while making the film, and they are currently living together as boyfriend and girlfriend in Las Vegas, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Their director Lucy Molloy says, "It's just crazy, because they're twins in the movie. The screen twins are having real twins together!"
