Not to be a downer here, but one’s chances of becoming famous are pretty slim, and the chances of being born to someone famous are quite low as well. Even rarer still? Being part of a pair of twins born to someone famous.

As of the latest U.S. data available, about 3.4 percent of all moms will give birth to twins (the chance of having twins is higher if fertility treatments are involved). Meanwhile, one enterprising writer put the odds of becoming even relatively famous at about 1 in 62,986.

So twins born to celebrity parents?! They are quite the rare gems indeed. Keep reading to find out all the celebrities who are parents of twins.

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt

I know we’re all still dealing with the fallout from their split, but these super-parents were the twin trendsetters of the decade. Vivienne and Knox were born in 2008, joining the four other Jolie-Pitt kids: Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh and Pax.

Matthew Broderick And Sarah Jessica Parker

Maybe having twins is the secret to relationship longevity (okay, except for Brangelina). SJP and Broderick, who have been married for 20 years, had twin girls Tabitha and Marion in 2009. The couple also has an older son, James.

Sean “Diddy” Combs And Kim Porter

Kim and Diddy have four children together, including twin girls Jessie and D’Lila and boys Quincy and Christian. The on-again, off-again couple isn’t an item anymore, but they still spend time together and have even taken family vacations together.

Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka

Yes, NPH’s life is just as charming in reality as it is on TV, and his kids are a major reason why. The couple became parents in 2010, when twins Gideon and Harper were born. The fashionable pair show up regularly on NPH’s Instagram account.

Zoë Saldana And Marco Perego

Everyone’s favorite sci-fi/fantasy heroine somehow found time in her busy schedule to give birth to twin boys in 2014 (another son, Zen, followed in 2017). The family stepped out for a rare public appearance together when Saldana received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in May 2018.

6. Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony

Meet Emme and Maximilian, the twins of superstars J Lo and Marc Anthony, who were born in 2008. With those genes, these kids can probably already sing better than any of us—in both languages!

Chris Hemsworth And Elsa Pataky

This super-hero family includes twins Tristan and Sasha, born in 2014, and an older sister, India Rose, born in 2012. Pataky shared this sweet snap of the twin brothers on Instagram.



Madonna is such a force to be reckoned with, she counts as her own couple. She’s also a super-mom — in 2017, her family grew again when she adopted 4-year-old twin sisters from Malawi. Esther and Stella join four older siblings: Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy.


Celine Dion And René Angélil

The Canadian diva and her husband, who passed away last year, had twin boys, Eddy and Nelson, in 2010.

Former “True Blood” stars and real-life couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are parents to 5-year-old twins Poppy and Charlie — but don’t expect to see their little ones in the spotlight.

“Everyone chooses what works for their family. There are aspects of one’s private life that are fun and cute and not too revealing,” Paquin told “Today” earlier this year. “And then there’s stuff where you’re making decisions for people who don’t have a say yet about whether they want to be in the public eye.”
