Celebrity couples in Hollywood seem to be having a baby boom. We really mean boom because plenty of them have been having twins!
Read below to see which celebs have had twinning bundles of joy.
1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Of course the power couple is the first on our list. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had twins – Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline in 2008. Did you know that the first photos of the twins were sold for millions of dollars?! It officially became the most expensive photo amongst celebs.
2. Roger and Mirka Federer
Tennis legend Roger Federer has – wait for it – two sets of twins! He and his wife Mirka have a set of twins of both the genders – Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, aged six and Leo and Lenny, aged one. Having two sets of twins, as you know, isn’t very common. And guess what? The sportsman’s sister has a set of twins as well! Perhaps it runs in the family.
3. Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco
Princess Charlene of Monaco gave birth to two bundles of joy, one a girl and one a boy. The daughter Gabriella is only a few minutes older than her “little” brother Jacques.
4. Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Chris Hemsworth, also known as Thor, and his wife Elsa, welcomed twin boys – Tristan and Sasha – two years ago. The couple also has a daughter who is the eldest of the three kids.
5. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick announced that they were having two surrogate babies! The little ones – Marion and Tabitha –were born in Ohio where the new parents flew to from New York.
6. Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder
Did you know that the twin gene runs in Julia Roberts’ family? The famous actress gave birth to a pair of twins called Hazel and Phinnaeus.
7. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Ex Latina couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony (now divorced) had a pair of fraternal twins together. Their names are Emme Maribel Munez and Maximilian David Muniz.
8. Celine Dion and René Angélil
Celine Dion had struggled to conceive, but in 2010 she and her late husband had a pair of fraternal twins. Parents name their kids for particular reasons, and this couple have personal reasons behind their kids’ names. One twin, Eddie got his name from Celine’s favourite Algerian songwriter named Eddie Marnay. The other twin’s name is Nelson, named after Nelson Mandela.
9. Ricky Martin
Singer Ricky Martin has twin sons Matteo and Valentino through a gestational surrogate. Since he “had” the twins, his sons asked him a rather tricky question, as they wanted to know if they came out of his belly! Here’s Martin’s adorable response, “There was a woman that I adore with all my heart that helped me bring you into this world. She lent me her belly so that you could come and when you were born she put you in my arms.”
10. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
Our favourite couple and favourite twins may or may not be Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. The couple got fertilized two surrogate eggs by sperm, which were donated by them, as they wanted to be biological dads. Well, the miracle worked as they were blessed with two beautiful babies – Harper and Gideon. They don’t know which child biologically belongs to which dad because they don’t care to find out. Have you seen their family photos every Halloween? You’ll fall in love with how adorable this family is.
Who knew so many celebs out there have twins through different forms of pregnancy?
