When I was a kid, I often wondered if I had a twin running around that was mistakenly separated from me at birth. I don't know if it was because I spent so much time watching Sister, Sister or if I just wanted someone to take my place when I was getting in trouble, but having a twin just seemed like a cool concept. Sure, I had siblings, but there was something about being a twin like Tia and Tamera Mowry that excited me. Now that I'm a little older, it seems like not only are there celebrity twins, there are many celebrities with twins!
Seeing all of the celebrity twin children makes me remember how I wished I could be a twin, or give birth to a set of twins of my own. Although twins run in my family on both my maternal and fraternal sides, I almost pretty sure that I won't be the one to have them. And, now that I'm older, I'm not even sure that I still want them. Two kids at one time? Sounds like a lot of work.
Though I'm not sure if could handle the pressure of being a mother to twins, triplets, or anything higher, these 11 parent celebs are doing an awesome job of raising twins.
