Anna Kendrick had a hilarious response to being mistaken for new mother Anna Kournikova, who welcomed twins with Enrique Iglesias last month.

After one news site posted a photo of the Pitch Perfect actress, rather than the former tennis star, under a story about the birth, Kendrick wrote on Twitter: "Do they think I'm the baby?"

The couple – who are known for their privacy – shared snaps of their adorable twins on social media on Tuesday.

But Yahoo accidently added a picture of the wrong Anna to their report, prompting Kendrick to post a screenshot of the article on Twitter alongside a humorous caption.

“Dear Yahoo: how do I get to this timeline where I've slept with Enrique Iqlesias please and thank you,” wrote the 32-year-old.

She then continued: “I realize the confusion probably came from the two Anna K names, but she's a tall blonde athlete and I'm - oh, oh - do they think I'm the baby?”

Joining in the joke, one follower laughed: “Wait until you fall into the Anna Karenina timeline.”
