After Beyoncé announced her and her husband Jay Z's exciting news in a gorgeous maternity shot shared on Instagram, there was a collective sigh from the Beyhive and speculations about when the Carter twins are due.

Anna Paquin joined the celeb-mama-of-multiples club when she welcomed her twins with husband (and True Blood love) Stephen Moyer in September of 2013. Moyer, who has two children from previous relationships, told Us Weekly that his kids are "the best things ever, and having two more is just going to be even more crazy, but that's cool." The pair will no doubt get twin parenting advice from co-star Sam Trammell. He welcomed his own set of double, Winston and Gus, with girlfriend Missy Yager in 2011.
Feeding her twins Charlie and Dolly, now 8, with husband Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn confesses that she felt like a milk machine. "I felt like that was all I was to them, just this walking milk machine," Romijn, who nursed the twin girls for more than nine months, said at the time. "Now that I'm not there as many hours during the day, they're pretty clingy. And I have to say, I love it. It's the best feeling in the world."
When they were younger, Julia Roberts' 12-year-old twins with husband Danny Moder—Phinneaus and Hazel—were not allowed to watch her movies. But their mama sure does get a thrill out of scaring the pair. "If I hear them coming, and they don't know where I am in the house, I crouch down in their private space," Roberts, who's also mom to Henry, 10, told Ellen DeGeneres. "They come in [to the room] and I just jump out. Little people can catch air—they just vault!" But like every mom, Julia feels the guilt. "I realized I was getting too much joy out of it, so I had to tone it down. It's so wrong!"
When Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick—already proud parents to James Wilkie, 14—found they were having twins via surrogate, they were thrilled. "I mean, giggles!" she said on Access Hollywood in 2009. "We didn't expect it. I think after a certain amount of time, we tend to hold your hopes at baby a bit so as not to be disappointed. One really would have been thrilling and we would have felt incredibly lucky. And two was a comedy!" These days, the proud mama can be seen toting her mini fashionistas, Tabitha and Marion, now 8, around downtown Manhattan.
Meeting his twin Gideon and Harper, born via surrogate, in 2010, was love at first sight for "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime love, David Burtka. "I just love the way they smell," Harris told People at the time. "And we can use them as an excuse to get out of almost anything. That's cleared the calendar in a good way." He also told Parade, "I love watching them learn to understand language. And watching them interact with each other is fantastic! ... They get to learn complicated concepts like sharing and cooperation. Watching their minds tick is fun."
In 2007, first-time mama Marcia Cross, then 44, welcomed fraternal twins Eden and Savannah with husband Tom Mahoney. She may be raising twins, Cross told Rachael Ray on her talk show, but these girls are as different as they come. "I love it and from the moment I could, I said, 'Wear what you want. And one of them would never touch a dress, and one of them is like, 'Give me the fluffy sweater!' One does karate and the other does ballet. It's amazing they get along so well—they're so different!"
So is Angelina Jolie Superwoman? Sure seems like it.

She plays a harried mom on the ABC hit "Modern Family," but in real life Julie Bowen was a controversial one shortly after having her twin sons, Johnny and Gus, now 8. The mom of three—son Oliver is now 10—got flack for showing off a photo of herself breast-feeding the twins on "Lopez Tonight" in 2010. But she totally had a sense of humor about it. "It's like two little liposuction machines on you," she said on "Lopez." "They suck the fat out of you. They call it the 'double football hold.' They're doing God's work right there, helping me return to my [pre-baby] weight."
Like any new mama, Mariah Carey tends to go a bit Twitter-happy posting pictures of her twins with ex-husband Nick Cannon, Monroe and Moroccan, now 6 years old. In fact, the proud parents created a website dedicated to their little ones, whom they've affectionately dubbed Dem Babies. "Parenthood is absolutely the most life changing experience we could ever have imagined," the pair wrote before their split. "The love we feel for these babies is above and beyond anything we'd ever dreamed of."
A first-time mama at 39, Jennifer Lopez has her hands full with not one but two little ones, twins Max and Emme, now 9, with ex-husband Marc Anthony. So how is the single mama—who's dating baseball star Alex Rodriguez—balancing parenthood and being a media mogul? "I live by the mantra that God doesn't give you anything you can't handle," she told InStyle magazine. "It's not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow," says Lopez, 48. And, at that point, "You realize: There's no reason to be terrified of things. Either way, I'm going to be OK."
The proud papa of twins Matteo and Valentino, now 9, Ricky Martin has said that becoming a father was "the most spiritual moment" in his life. And he's a hands-on parent. When the twins were born in 2008, via surrogate, he told People, "I'm the one who changes the diapers, the one that feeds them, the one that bathes them, the one that puts them to sleep." On the cover of the Spanish edition of Vanity Fair, the singer said: "I am their father. I am their mother. And I will tell my kids the truth."
She was already mom to Rene-Charles, 16, when Céline Dion, then 42, gave birth to her twin boys, Nelson and Eddy, in 2010. But that didn't diminish her new mama pride. "It was a day of tremendous joy," she said of their birth. "I'm truly happy. Everything went well and the babies are in good health. That's all that counts. I'm telling you, if they could have come out through my ears at the time they were ready to come into the world, that would have suited me fine."

The twins, John Stacy and Kristopher Steven, were named after famous, close friends of the family—Johnny Cash and Christopher Reeve.

Before the show "Jon and Kate Plus 8," there was a husband, wife and their two twin daughters, Mady and Cara. While many remember the twins as the determined big sisters to their sextuplet siblings on the now-infamous television show, few have witnessed their lives since the family went off-air in 2009. In an interview with People magazine, the twins opened up about their difficult relationship with their estranged father, stating, "If he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen."
The former co-host of "Good Morning America" had raised three children before deciding to become a mom at age 54 to fraternal twins born via surrogate in 2003.

Bassett's husband explained to Oprah that he'd had a dream many years before that they would have twins, he just didn't know how. When they learned of surrogacy, their longstanding dream of becoming parents finally became a reality.
