We began our search and discovered far more than we had anticipated.
Former pair Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony welcomed twins Max and Emme in February 2008, and super high-profile couples like George and Amal Clooney, whose twins Ella and Alex mark their third birthday today.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, Julia Roberts and Danny Moder, and a slew of others have joined the parents-of-twins club.
