17 Celebrity Couples Who Had Twins Before It Was Cool

Sorry, Beyoncé

Lately, it seems like all the cool kids are having twins. Early this month, Beyoncé nearly killed everyone with her fancy pregnancy announcement on Instagram. Then, George Clooney attempted to kill anyone left by revealing that he's expecting twins — with wife Amal, not me. And just this week, Walking Dead star Steven Yeun subtly shared he'll be seeing double soon. What gives, guys? Is there some twins quota I never got the memo on?

Since twindom is taking the celeb world by storm lately, let's look at several famous couples who've already welcomed twins of their own.

The now-divorced couple's youngest kids are 8-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox. The Hollywood A-listers also have four other children: Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, and Pax.

Jensen Ackles and Danneel Harris Ackles

Supernatural's Dean Winchester and One Tree Hill's Rachel Gatina welcomed twins Zeppelin and Arrow back in December. The couple also has a 3-year-old daughter named Justice Jay, a.k.a. “JJ.”


First off, Madonna is a strong and independent woman who don't need no man. Second, she literally just adopted 4-year-old twins from Malawi. The little girls have four big siblings: Lourdes, Rocco, David, and Mercy.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

The duo became parents in 2010, welcoming Gideon and Harper into the world. The twins are super stylish — like, they put my entire wardrobe to shame.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

Thor's family includes 2-year-old twin boys Tristan and Sasha, plus 4-year-old sis India Rose. Earlier this month, Pataky posted about her husband at “Superhero camp” with the twins.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

The divorced couple raises their 5-year-old kids, Monroe and Moroccan, together. After learning of Beyoncé's big baby news, Carey commented on the Lemonade singer's Instagram pic, “Congrats Bey and Jay!!! I’m so happy for you both. Having twins is the most incredible experience ever! Love, Mariah and the twins.”

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Lopez and Anthony, who divorced in 2014, have 8-year-old twins, Emme and Maximilian.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star gave birth to twin boys, Bowie and Cy, in 2014. The kiddos apparently like to wear superhero capes and throw out fire songs (well, maybe not just yet) on the piano.

As MTV News previously wrote, the Air Bud star is a total DILF now. He and wife Feld welcomed twin girls, Zoë and Blake, back in 2015.
