10 Famous Celebrities with Twin Babies

Having a child is a miracle. Sometimes, something particularly special happens and a couple will be blessed with a duo of little miracles. This usually happens when a fertilized egg splits into two eggs in utero which go on to develop two individual children, meaning that it can be a pretty rare occurrence. Identical twins share the exact same DNA when this process happens and fraternal twins share the same womb, but have two different sperm cells. Having twins when you are expecting a single child can really change the game, making you run around twice as much. But it is also twice as much of a blessing.

Not many people know that quite a few celebrities have twin babies. As well as balancing a busy career-driven life which can include endless hours on the set or recording sessions, some celebrities have to balance the role of parenting a pair of twins.

We’ve compiled a list of famous celebrities with twin babies. If you thought that the Hollywood life might be a handful, you haven’t seen anything yet!

1 – Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

The Sex in the City (1998-2004) star and the lead in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) had a pair of twin daughters, Tabitha Hodge and Marion Loretta Elwell. The daughters often join Parker in different outings, like the New York City Ballet’s 2018 Spring Gala. Parker used the help of a surrogate to bring her daughters into the world in 2009, being the second and third children to the celebrity couple after the birth of their son, James Wilkie Roderick, in 2002.

10 – Zoe Saldana

The sci-fi film star who has been in titles like Avatar (2009) and the rebooted Star Trek series brought a pair of twin boys into the world with her husband Marco Perego in 2011. The children were named Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana and have spanned the social media pages of both parents.

Having a set of twins can be as rare as having a successful career in Hollywood or reaching the level of fame that these mentioned celebrities have amassed. These parents often have to come up with creative ways to make this scheduling work and to include time for their children. Balancing both worlds can seem like an insurmountable task to most people, but despite it all, these power couples manage to find a way.
