As it just so happens, Twin Pregnancy and Beyond explains that fertility treatments like IVF increase older women’s chances of conceiving double. And since many women in Hollywood are delaying having kids and/or starting a family because of their careers, they are more likely to turn to fertility treatments like IVF.

Of course, getting pregnant through IVF is no easy task and can often take several rounds. But because each round typically involves implanting multiple fertilized eggs into the womb, there is always the chance that more than one egg manifests in a healthy pregnancy. Hence, twins. Or triplets. Or even more.

That said, there is a surplus of celebrity moms giving birth to twins. Below, we've gathered some of our favorite A-list moms and dads who are parents to twins.
