Since I got pregnant with my twins (and instantly became more aware of and interested in the world of multiples) there seems to have been a lot of celebrities having multiples. Here are the ones I remember...
Princess Mary has just had twins last month. Hers are the first 'famous' set of twins born in 2011, but Mum-to-be Mariah Carey is due to join her. Apparently she is expecting boy/girl twins later this year.
Both Celine Dion and Neil Patrick Harris became 'twin parents' (not together. lol) in October 2010. Celine had two boys and NPH a pigeon pair.
Sarah Jessica Parker's girls were born in June 2009, albeit by
Charlie Sheen's wife
Lisa Marie Presley, Ricky Martin and Rebecca Romijn had their babies in 2008 (like me). Lisa Marie had two girls, Finley and Harper as did Rebecca, who named her pair Dolly and Charlie. Ricky Martin's were both boys, named Matteo and Valentino, born in August 2008 via surrogate Mum.
Of course there was already a long list of Multiple Mums and Dads, like Patrick Demspey, JLo, Marcia Cross, Geena Davis, and Julia Roberts, to name a few, before I ever joined the fraternity. I never thought I would be a 'twin Mum' but it has been a surprisingly rewarding experience.
Double the trouble, double the blessings.
So, who have I forgotten? What are your thoughts on the 'twin epidemic'?
