Top 10 celebrities who have twins

August 04 11:19 2014

When it comes to celebrities and babies, we often read headlines asking whether this celebrity is having a boy or girl or others declaring that a couple is having twins. Often times, there is just one baby brewing, waiting for its moment to be born after nine long months.

However, many celebrities have had twins, whether by themselves like music star Ricky Martin or together such as Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Identical twins result when a fertilized egg is split into two. Fraternal twins result when two different sperm fertilize two eggs.

Recently, it was reported that actress Zoe Saldana is pregnant, and expecting twins. In honor of this news, we are counting down some of the top ten celebrities who have twins. From Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, these famous faces have double bundles of joy.

1. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

The How I Met Your Mother star and his husband, David Burtka, are parents to Gideon Scott and Harper Grace Burtka-Harris. The couple used two donor eggs and both their sperm so they could have one of each for the two of them. As far as we know, the couple does not know which child is biologically theirs, but I think Gideon looks like Neil and Harper appears to take after David. Either way, they are absolutely adorable and the proud dads always look happy with their children.
