Anna Paquin loves the "luxury" of having a nanny.

The 'True Blood' actress and husband Stephen Moyer - who has daughter Lilac, 10, and son Billy, 12, from previous relationships - welcomed twins into the world last month and Anna knows she is lucky to be able to afford the help she needs with her family.

She said: "I have the luxury of being able to afford the help I need. I consider having a full-time, reliable job a major blessing. You will never catch me complaining about being employed."

Anna loves the fact she and Stephen get to work together because they are "best friends".

She told the new issue of Red magazine: "We're best friends. If you're going to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want it to be the person you want to hang out with all the time.

"We have a lot in common but, when it comes down to it, if that person isn't really your buddy as well, for me, I don't think that would work. And we spend all our time together.

"A lot of people say, 'Oh, I could never work with my significant other', but I love getting to go to work with the person I want to spend all my time with.' "

One of the reasons why Anna loves her husband is because of his "Englishness".

She said: "He's as English as they come, very polite, very well-mannered. He's a very nice English husband - and very attractive."
