Before Beyonce's twins: 6 Hollywood couples raising twins
As Beyonce's first picture of her twins continues to break the internet, here's a tip of the hat to other famous couples who are bringing up twins
Beyonce broke the internet again after giving birth to twins, five months after she posted an ethereal pregnancy picture making the announcement. This Instagram post is also flower-laden. Bey is wearing a floor-sweeping veil and cradling her twins — son Sir (talk about being entitled from birth!) and daughter Rumi. The twins have already made history before they were born — mark the date: June 13 at 5:13 am.
Raising two babies together is no joke; expect Beyonce-Jay Z to have their hands full for the next few weeks (and years). Here are other celebrity couples who've been there, and are doing that.
1. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
Twins: Ella and Alexander
The super secretive couple haven't let the paparazzi snap a single photo of their babies born last month. All we know is their names – a girl called Ella and a boy, Alexander. Sweet!
2. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Twins: Vivienne and Knox
The only news we've been hearing surrounding Brangelina is their divorce. They had a big brood together (adopted and biological) of which two are twins – daughter Vivienne and son Knox born in July 2008.
3. Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder
Twins: Hazel and son Phinnaeus
Oscar winner Julia Roberts recently separated from her cinematographer husband Daniel Moder, but continues to share parenting duties for their three kids Henry (10) and 12-year-old twins, daughter Hazel and son Phinnaeus.
4. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Twins: Marion and Tabitha
Sex and the City star and producer Sarah Jessica Parker was 42 when the pangs of motherhood beckoned again (she already has a teenage son, James Wilkie). Sarah Jessica Parker and actor-husband Matthew Broderick went through surrogacy in 2009 and had cute-as-a-button daughters, Marion and Tabitha who are now eight years old.
5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Twins: Maximilian and Emme
Jlo may have parted ways with Marc Anthony, but their friendship remains intact (we saw them exchange a friendly kiss at the 2016 Latin Grammy Awards). Their nine-year-old twins — Maximilian and daughter Emme — were born on February 22, 2008 and have the cutest cross-cultural look.
6. Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell
Twins: Dolly and Charlie
Stunning supermodel and actress Rebecca Romijn has equally gorgeous daughters with actor-husband Jerry O'Connell. Dolly and Charlie were born on December 28, 2008 and accompany their sporty parents to every beach and park outing.
Aren't these celebrity twin kids totally adorable! We can't wait to see Rumi and Sir grow up.
