TV icon Jane Seymour, who once gave birth to twins and is the mother of six, has some advice for Angelina Jolie.

"My advice to her is to put some weight on," the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman star told OK!. "I think she needs to keep putting on weight so she can feed those babies. I don’t think she should think twice. She hasn’t put on enough weight."

Jolie, whose film Wanted is in theaters now, will soon be mother to six children herself when she gives birth to her twins with Brad Pitt.

Seymour,57, says that when she had her twins, John and Kristopher, in 1995, it was a life threatening delivery.

"I nearly died having the twins," she recalled. "I had preclampsia, which is toxemia, and I had to have an emergency C-section and I almost lost my life. So my advice to her [Jolie] is to listen to your doctors and if they say bed rest and they say blood pressure cuff every hour and they say whatever medication they say, you should take it very seriously."

The Dancing with the Stars alum, who was promoting her upcoming Hallmark Channel TV movie Dear Prudence at the Television Critics Association Event in L.A. on Tuesday, has four biological children as well as two stepchildren with husband James Keach. She told OK! six kids is definitely a handful.

They "need me every day," she laughed.
