13. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie went from being a mother of none to a mother of six very quickly and it was made even quicker by welcoming twins with ex-husband Brad Pitt! Following the adoption of son Maddox, and daughter Zahara, Jolie and Pitt welcomed their first biological child, daughter Shiloh in 2006. The famous pair then adopted son Pax in 2007, and one year later after much speculation, in May 2008 Jolie confirmed she and Pitt were expecting twins! On July 12, 2008 the pair welcomed son Knox and daughter Vivienne. A month before their birth, Jolie admitted, twins was a shock for her. “We weren’t expecting twins. So it did shock us, and we jumped to six [children] quickly. But we like a challenge.”

12. Ricky Martin

In August 2008, two years before publicly announcing he is gay, Ricky Martin became a dad to twin sons. In August 2008, Martin welcomed Matteo and Valentino via a surrogate mother, and said he has had to clear up with his sons where they came from. His sons asked him if they had been in his belly, and he told them, “There was a woman that I adore with all my heart that helped me bring you into this world. She lent me her belly so you could come and when you were born she put you in my arms.” In 2016, he also gave a heartwarming interview where his sons finally realized he was famous. “One day, when I thought that they were big enough, I said, ‘Go to the front of the house,’ and they see the lights and the whole spectacle,” he recalled. “When the show was over, they came to me and said, ‘Papi, you’re Ricky Martin.’ I said ‘I’m not Ricky Martin, I’m your father.’ They said, ‘No, no, no, you’re Ricky Martin,’ and so it changed.”
