Leigh-Anne shared no further details about her new arrivals, shocking fans with the announcement as she had not revealed she was expecting twins.
The post comes just one day after bandmate Perrie Edwards revealed she had given birth to her first child with her footballer boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 28.
The Little Mix stars both announced their pregnancy news on Instagram in May within six days of each other.

Although Perrie beat her with the birth announcement, Leigh-Anne’s time stamp revealed that she welcomed her twins five days beforehand, but kept the news private until now.
It means the birth will have come days before her older sister Sairah also welcomed a child into the world, announcing the arrival of her second son.
Sairah, 31, wrote on social media on Friday: ‘9 months of growing you, a lifetime to love you. Welcome to the world Sevn Santino Pinnock – Roberts.’

Following her bandmates’ announcements, Jade Thirlwall took to Instagram to repost the pictures.
Former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson has yet to comment publicly on either post.
Leigh-Anne announced her pregnancy in May alongside a trio of images showcasing her bump as she penned: ‘We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you.’
The singer got engaged to Watford FC player Andre last year after he proposed at their home during lockdown.
Explaining the moment Andre got on one knee, Leigh-Anne said he ‘set up candles like something out of a movie.’

Speaking on Bumble’s ‘My Love Is…’ podcast in November, she said the pair were watching a movie at the time.
She continued: ‘Then it cut out and there was pictures of us, it was playing our song, then the screen changed to ‘Will you marry me?’ and he was on one knee.’
Andre said he had been planning to pop the question to Leigh-Anne for quite some time, but struggled after the UK’s first lockdown was put into place in March.
He also said his sister stepped in to help him pull off the proposal, making sure he could make the moment as romantic as possible.

Leigh-Anne and Perrie’s baby joy comes shortly ahead of the release of former bandmate Jesy’s new single.
Little Mix became one of the best-selling girl groups of all time after forming on The X Factor in 2011.
Jesy left the band in December citing mental health reasons and has gone on to work on releasing solo material.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Jesy revealed that she doesn’t keep in touch with her former girl group, saying that they all ‘need time’, but insisted she ‘loves them to pieces, they were like my sisters.’
She also said what she thought what the future of the band will be: ‘I reckon they’ll look after their babies, go off and do their own things for a while, then make a comeback together.;
Jesy is set to release her debut solo single Boyz in the coming weeks, while the remaining members of Little Mix will drop their seventh studio album, Between Us, on November 12.
