Sarah Jessica Parker and twins

Sometimes we get so star-struck by our favorite celebrities we forget they’re real people, too. Many of them are real people with kids. Some of them are even the celebrity parents of twins. Here are some of the entertainment industry’s big names with twins in the family.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Their twins were born on the couple’s third wedding anniversary (April 30, 2011). The boy, Monroe, and the girl, Moroccan Scott, were delivered by C-section at 35 weeks. Carey suffered from gestational diabetes, hypertension, and preeclampsia; waiting for full-term was getting too risky so an early delivery was planned.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

Twin girls, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, were born of a surrogate in June 2009. Their middle names (Elwell and Hodge) are from Parker’s maternal family. The twins’ big brother, James Wilkie, born in 2002, was named after Broderick’s father, the late actor James Broderick, and 19th-century English writer, Wilkie Collins.
