Double Trouble: 25 Celebrity Couples With Twin Children

With advances in medicine and science, the rates of twin births are higher than they've ever been.

But that doesn't make them any less special.

In my own family there are no twins, even in my extended family, so I'm always a little jealous of celebrities who are doubly blessed with two adorable children.

And it seems like celebrities are even likelier to have twins than the rest of us:

1. Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez gave birth to twins Maximilian and Emme in 2008, the children of her then-husband, singer Marc Anthony.

The couple have since divorced, but J-Lo insists they're "great friends" and "great parents together."

The singer is raising her now 10-year-old twins with the help of her current boyfriend, baseball player Alex Rodriguez.

2. Steve Harvey
