Celebrity parents with multiples

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova

According to E! Online, singer Enrique Iglesias and his partner of 16 years, former tennis pro, Anna Kournikova, welcomed boy-girl twins—Nicholas and Lucy—in December 2017. The super-private couple have yet to be spotted out and about with their new babes, but the news of twins came as quite the shock to fans since there was never a pregnancy announcement. In a 2011 interview with Women’s Health, Anna had said that she always wanted kids. “I absolutely want to have children, whether I have my own or adopt. I love taking care of people.”

Shaun T and Scott Blokker

Hollywood is seeing double! Fitness guru, Shaun T, and his husband of five years, Scott Blokker, welcomed twin boys—Sander and Silas—via surrogate in November 2017. Like most twins, they were delivered early at 32 weeks and spent some time in the NICU. After a bit of TLC in the hospital, the twins went home with their dads and are doing well!

Jamie Pressly and Hamzi Hijazi

Jamie Pressly and her longtime boyfriend, Hamzi Hijazi, welcomed twin boys, Leo and Lenon, in October 2017. The My Name is Earl actress and her boyfriend Hamzi were shocked to learn they were expecting twins, especially because twins don’t run in either family and the couple had a tough time conceiving. “I didn’t understand what I was looking at on the screen because there were two sacs and two little heartbeats and I’m like, ‘What exactly are we looking at? Is everything all right?’ We were in shock,” she told US Weekly. Hey Jamie, you might want to check out our real-life parenting hacks for raising twins!

Jessi Cruickshank and Evan Gatica

After a not-so-perfect pregnancy, and some anxiety about childbirth, Canadian TV personality Jessi Cruickshank and her husband Evan Gatica welcomed their twin boys—Diego and Rio—and all went smoothly. Jessi told ET Canada, “My boys were born four minutes apart and just hours later, when I held them together on my chest for the first time, they reached out and held each others hands. I thought my heart might explode!” She posted another adorable photo of the twins wearing name-bead bracelets, captioned, “Please welcome: Diego Green Gatica and Rio Ross Gatica. I made these bracelets because I’m a super craft mom, also because [my] Evan Gatica and I can’t tell them apart.” We’re sure some of these other celebs are having the same problem, Jessi.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo welcomed boy-girl twins, Eva and Mateo, via surrogate in June 2017. Five months later, he and his fiancée, model Georgina Rodriguez, welcomed a baby girl named Alana together. The soccer star also has a son, Cristiano Jr., via surrogate, born June 2010. We think Cristiano might be building his own mini soccer team!

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Meet Rumi and Sir Carter—the world’s most famous twin babies. Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed their boy-girl twins on June 13, but kept quite about their arrival, leaving the world to speculate about the details—what are the names, did Beyonce have a homebirth, what are the genders? Finally a month later the couple shared this glamourous photo of the newest members of the Carter family.

George is sedated and should recover in a few days.” Oh George!

In 2017, Madonna adopted four-year-old twin sisters Esther and Stella from Malawi. She posted this photo to celebrate the adoption, writing “I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family. I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible.” Esther and Stella join Madonna’s four other children (Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy), making them a happy family of seven.

The couple are also parents to their son, Rocket.

Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress and hubby, Marco Perego, welcomed their twin boys, Cy and Bowie, in November 2014. Zoe does post pictures of her babies, but hides their faces (and for good reason). She told E! News, “I just don’t want 16 years from now to get ‘You are so disrespectful. You invaded, you exposed me and I wasn’t ready…Even though they’re babies and they’re under our care, it’s still their face.” Good point, mama!

Celine Dion and René Angélil

Céline Dion, and her late husband, René Angelil, welcomed their twins boys, Eddy and Nelson, in October 2010. Shortly after their birth, Céline announced that she was originally expecting three boys (as a result of in vitro fertilization), but the third “chose to let go,” she said, “to give space to his brothers to grow.” Eddy and Nelson also have a big brother, René-Charles.

Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder

Julia Roberts and her hubby, Daniel Moder, welcomed twins Phinnaeus Walter and Hazel Patricia in November 2004. There’s been a lot of curiosity around the twins’ names. On The Late Show with David Letterman, Julia explained, “Hazel is an old-fashioned name, and she’s a strong, perfect Hazel.” And on Live with Regis and Kelly, she said, “My husband wanted to name [Phinnaeus] Finn, which I quite liked, but it seemed like a nickname…So I said we had to have a proper name, and then we can call him Finn.”

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, conceived their twins, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge Broderick, via a surrogate. “I mean, giggles!” Sarah Jessica told Access Hollywood when asked what her reaction was when she learned she was expecting twins. “We didn’t expect it. I think after a certain amount of time, you tend to hold your hopes at bay a bit so as not to be disappointed. One really would have been thrilling and we would’ve felt incredibly lucky. And two was a comedy.” Marion and Tabitha also have a big brother, James Wilkie.

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

“We can confirm that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer recently welcomed their twins into the world,” the actors’ rep announced back in September 2012. “The babies were born a few weeks early, but are in good health and both Mom and Dad are overjoyed.” We don’t know much about these True Blood twins, except their names, Charlie and Poppy. Stephen is also dad to Lilac and Billy from a previous relationship.

Julie Bowen and Scott Phillips

Modern Family‘s Emmy award-winning star Julie Bowen, practised the “double football hold” when she was breastfeeding her twins, John and Gus. She even shared a photo of herself breastfeeding them on Lopez Tonight. The picture was considered too explicit to share on The View, but I think it’s amazing…. Check it out here.

Marcia Cross and Tom Mahoney

You’d never know Marcia Cross was her age! Indeed, having twin girls — Eden and Savannah — hasn’t aged her a bit.

Kate and Jon Gosselin

We don’t usually write about Kate Gosselin, but we’re pretty sure we’d be remiss if we didn’t include the Kate Plus 8/Dancing With the Stars star in this gallery. Kate has eight kids with her ex-husband Jon Gosselin—fraternal twins, Cara and Madelyn, and sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel (three boys and three girls). Wow…!

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell have twin girls, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip. And it looks like one twin pregnancy is enough for them because, as Rebecca has said, “We feel like the world was made for pairs. Four feels like the perfect number. Also, we’re not interested in overpopulating this world…So we feel like we don’t want to leave more than we are when we leave this planet.”

Rodney Jr. was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old, and Holly has become a very vocal autism advocate over the years. On their 14th birthday, Holly tweeted, “14 years ago today I gave birth to 2 little angels… What a blessing they have been to my life…” Rodney and Ryan have two younger siblings, as well — Robinson and Roman.

Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Lockwood

Lisa Marie Presley and her husband, Michael Lockwood, have twin girls, Finley and Harper. Lisa Marie claims she’d been struggling with fertility for two years before conceiving her twins. “My blood was too thick and would clot, which caused several miscarriages,” she has said. “The moment I took blood thinners, I got pregnant.”

Diana Krall and Elvis Costello

Oh, to get lullabies from Diana Krall and Elvis Costello! And there are double the lullabies in their house, with twin boys Dexter Henry Lorcan and Frank Harlem James, born December 2006. “There’s this book I picked up in England called something like, ‘A Healthy, Calm, Content Household with Twins,’” Diana told People Magazine. “It’s like, 7 a.m., open up the curtains, feed them, 11 a.m., close the curtains, put them in their beds…. You need a whistle and a stopwatch!”
