George and Amal Clooney
The Monuments Men actor and his wife, lawyer Amal Clooney, welcomed babies Ella and Alexander into the world very recently. With high hopes pinned on them already, Clooney’s mother-in-law, writer and broadcaster Baria Alamuddin, has said she would like to see her grandchildren go into humanitarian work when they’re older, much like their parents.
La vida loca got a little more loca when Martin welcomed twin sons Matteo and Valentino via surrogate in August 2008. The boys did more than just make him a dad; they also inspired him to be true to himself and come out of the closet in March 2010.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
It is easy to lose track, but somewhere in that big Jolie-Pitt brood is a set of two. Fraternal twins Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon were born in July 2008.
After the tragic loss of her husband, 49-year-old Céline Dion sat down with The Sun and revealed that she and her twin daughters sleep in the same bed every night. The Canadian singer is finding comfort in keeping her 6-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson Angélil close and helping them remember their late father.
Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell
Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell welcomed twin girls, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, into the world in late December 2008, but say they are drawing the line at two. “We feel like the world was made for pairs. Four feels like the perfect number,” Romijn told People magazine.
Modern Family actress Julie Bowen has mastered the “double football hold” to breastfeed her baby boys John and Gus simultaneously. Bowen, who also has an older son Oliver with real estate investor husband Scott Phillips, captured a shot to show the audience of The View, but the producers nixed it. Fortunately, George Lopez was more than happy to show a blown-up version in the background of his interview with Bowen. “Those twins are lucky,” he told her.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
SJP used a surrogate to welcome twin girls Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge Broderick in June 2009, joining big brother James Wilkie, born in October 2002.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony got divorced a few years ago, but they still remain friends and were happy to put on a show for their twins Max and Emme’s birthday, where the ex-couple came together to celebrate.
Roberts, who gave birth to Phinnaeus Walter and Hazel Patricia in November 2004 (singleton son Henry arrived June 2007) may be Hollywood’s glam girl, but with her kids, she’s just Mom. Case in point - the streak of pink hair she sported to a charity in late 2008, which was the handiwork of little Hazel.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Even though the couple split in 2014, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have continued spending family time in public and are constantly being seen having fun with their twins, Moroccan and Monroe. “I can’t believe it’s been six years since you two came into this world to the live version of Fantasy.. ‘the applause!!!’ ” Carey captioned a 2011 photo of herself holding “Dem Babies” when they were just newborns. Moroccan and Monroe became six this May.
