For a baby, it doesn't get much better than being born to celebrities as successful and famous as Chris Hemsworth or Angelina Jolie. Except, it does get better, and that happens when you not only nab awesome parents, but also have an automatic best friend be right with you through it all. That's right, I'm talking twins, and you might be surprised by how many celebrities were lucky enough to have multiples.

Here's a collection of celebrity parents who doubled their family's cuteness with twins.

1. Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

Twins: Tristan and Sasha

Super-dad Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky had their twin sons in March 2014 (joining older daughter India Rose), and life looks like it's been pretty much bliss ever since. When you've got a dad who's a literal god, your whole life is pretty much a dream.

2. Julia Roberts and Danny Moder

Twins: Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus "Finn" Walter

Hazel and Finn were born in November 2004, and ever since Julia Roberts has considered herself a full-time Mom and a full-time actress.

3. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Twins: Monroe and Moroccan

Affectionately deeming her precious twins "dem babies," Mariah Carey has soaked up life as a mother, even devoting a website and Twitter account to her adorable offspring. Though the couple are separated, Nick Cannon puts differences aside to be there for cute moments like this.

4. Julie Bowen and Scott Phillips

Twins: John and Gustav

As Modern Family's neurotic mom Claire, Julie Bowen has given us a glimpse of what it might be like to be in her household. As it turns out, Julie has taken on some of those Type-A qualities and has admitted she's given up on being the "cool mom" to John, Gustav, and Oliver.

5. Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance

Twins: Bronwyn and Slater

She's been turning heads on American Horror Story for years now, but Angela Bassett has been able to balance family life with work ever since her precious twins were born in 2006.

6. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Twins: Emme Maribel and Maximilian David

Jennifer Lopez is a non-stop hustler in Hollywood, continuously perfecting the art of the triple threat as she sings, dances, and acts for decades, seemingly without ever aging. However, she openly proclaims that her most important gig is motherhood.

7. Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell

Twins: Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip

If her Instagram is any indication, Rebecca Romijn and husband Jerry O'Connell relish the chance to raise their two twin girls.

8. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

Twins: Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge

Born in 2009, Marion and Tabitha sent parents Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick over the moon when they arrived by surrogate. The family can often be seen roaming the streets of New York in ensembles that would make even Carrie Bradshaw jealous.

9. Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego

Twins: Bowie Ezio and Cy Aridio

As if this family's undeniable cuteness weren't enough, Zoe and husband Marco have promised to raise their children to be bilingual, speaking both Spanish and English in the home.

10. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

Twins: Gideon Scott and Harper Grace

Regularly killing the Halloween costume game, the Burtka-Harris's have made sure that son Gideon and daughter Harper are continually the coolest kids on the block.

11. Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink

Twins: Sullivan Patrick and Darby Galen

He may be a real-life McDreamy with a passion for racing cars, but Patrick Dempsey views his twin boys Sullivan and Darby as the most fulfilling aspect of his life.

12. Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt

Twins: Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon

Perhaps the most famous celebrity parents of our time, Angelina and Brad welcomed twins Vivi and Knox in July 2008. Of course, they were joining a household full of children, but none of the other kids can claim that their baby pictures nabbed the biggest paycheck ever—a reported $14 million!
