Press Association

If you were worried that the future would be devoid of celebrity fabulousness, don’t worry your pretty little head, darling. The stars on this list are doing their best to repopulate Hollywood and keep the talented blood, gorgeous bods, and instantly recognizable last names in the lime-light. Check out these 8 stars who have 5 or more kids.

8. Jude Law – 5 Kids

Jude Law may have won fans over with his many acting roles, but his personal life hasn’t fared as well when it comes to rocky relationships and scandalous headlines. Things may have been simpler for Jude during his first marriage to actress Sadie Frost with whom he had his first three children, Rafferty, Iris, and Rudy. But things haven’t been so straight forward for Jude from there. After his divorce to Sadie, he went through a very public relationship and break-up with fellow star Sienna Miller (both reportedly having affairs while they were engaged which led to their split). From there, Jude briefly dated model Samantha Burke and their time together resulted in the birth of Jude’s fourth child, a daughter named Sophia. But Jude wasn’t quite done yet. After a short rekindling with Sienna Miller, it was announced that Jude was expecting his fifth child with Catherine Harding, a woman who, it was made clear, he was no longer in a relationship with. So, folks, Jude is single again and perhaps ready for baby number 6.


7. Steven Spielberg – 7 Kids

Steven Spielberg may be best known for his domination of Hollywood from the director’s chair, but he is also the proud papa to seven children, four girls and three boys who he shares with his ex-wife, actress Amy Irving and current lady love actress Kate Capshaw. Jessica, Max, Theo, Sasha, Sawyer, Mikaela, and Destry can occasionally be seen on the red carpet with their dad, who always appears to be thrilled to have his kids along with him. A blended family (some of the children are adopted, some are step-children), the Spielberg family appears to be Steven’s ultimate directing job.


6. Billy Ray Cyrus – 6 Kids

That’s right, there are six Cyrus kids in total. Miley has three sisters and two brothers. Christopher Cody Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Braison Cyrus, Noah Cyrus, Trace Cyrus, and Brandi Glenn Cyrus. But, there’s a bit of a story behind this brood. Miley (who was actually named Destiny Hope at birth), Braison, and Noah are Billy’s children with wife Leticia “Tish” Cyrus. Brandi and Trace are Billy’s step-children, their mother being Tish. Billy officially adopted the two kids. Christopher, however, was raised by his mother, Kristin Luckey, after she and Cyrus had ended their relationship. Christopher was born in 1992. So was Miley. They have different moms. Billy Ray Cyrus wasn’t married to either of the women. This may not seem like such a big deal, but Cyrus’ record company didn’t think it would go over well with the public and it was all kept a big secret at the time.

5. Eddie Murphy – 9 Kids

Eddie Murphy has nine (NINE!) kids, but the most family of the little one’s undoubtedly is Angel Iris Murphy Brown, his daughter with former Spice Girl Mel B. But let’s start from the beginning, shall we? Eddie has a son, Eric, with his former girlfriend Paulette McNeely. He had a son, Christian, with his former girlfriend Tamara Hood. He has five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell, Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, and Bella. And then came little Angel. When Eddie Murphy started dating Melanie Brown (Mel B of Spice Girls fame), she became pregnant and let the world know it was Eddie’s baby. He, however, wasn’t so sure and let the world know that just as loudly. After VERY publicly questioning the paternity of the little one, tests proved that he was in fact the father. But things didn’t go smoothly from there. Mel B reportedly claimed that Eddie had not tried to establish a relationship with his daughter although later claims said that he was. That, however, didn’t stop Murphy from breeding bountifully. Just this month, November 2015, it was announced that Eddie Murphy is expecting his ninth child with his girlfriend, model Paige Butcher.

4. Kevin Costner – 7 Kids

Way back in his college days, Kevin Costner met fellow student Cindy Silva. The two fell in love and eventually married and had three kids together: Anne, Lily, and Joseph. However, after 16 years of marriage, they called it quits and Kevin began dating Bridget Rooney. Rooney became pregnant with Costner’s fourth child, another son who was named Liam. After a live-in relationship with supermodel Elle Macpherson, Kevin married model Christine Baumgartner and the two welcomed into the world Cayden, Hayes, and Grace bringing Kevin’s total kid count to an impressive seven little Costners.

3. Charlie Sheen – 5 Kids

Oh, Charlie Sheen. There’s so much that could be said about his personal life and wild ways, but let’s just stick to the little ones who call him dad. Charlie himself being the son of Hollywood icon Martin Sheen and brother of fellow actor Emilio Estevez, Charlie’s kids are already members of the Hollywood family, but that doesn’t mean things are totally easy for them, especially when they have a dad that gets himself into the headlines for having a “harem” of “goddesses.” Charlie became a father for the first time when his former high school girlfriend, Paula gave birth to their daughter Cassandra (Cassandra herself is now a mom which makes Charlie a grandpa). After a few very public scandal-filled relationships and break-ups, Charlie married actress Denise Richards and the two had adorable little ones, Sam and Lola. But Charlie and Denise didn’t make it long as a couple and she was forced to file for divorce because of Charlie’s alcohol and drug abuse as well as violent threats. Not long after, Charlie married Brooke Mueller and the two had twin sons, Bob and Max. Another divorce soon followed for Sheen and the two boys were actually removed from their home at one point by police because of the situation caused by their parents. Denise Richards ended up looking after them for a short time in order to provide a safe and stable environment for the boys. Since then, and following a string of erratic behavior and failed relationships with “goddesses” and porn stars, Sheen has publicly declared that he’ll be focusing more on his kids for the time being instead of his relationships. Let’s hope for the little ones, that ends up being a good thing.

2. Kris Jenner – 6 Kids

Kris Jenner may be the ultimate fame-based mama at the moment. With six children, most of which are making wild waves in Hollywood and beyond, there’s no missing this matriarch. Kris has four children with now-deceased former husband Robert Kardashian: Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Robert Kardashian Jr. She also has two daughters with former partner Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. If you don’t know the Kardashian Jenner kids and Kris herself, then what rock have you been hiding under? Surely one on another planet with no cable and no WiFi — oh you poor thing!

1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – 6 Kids

The Jolie-Pitt’s are undeniably another of Hollywood’s most famous families and one of those reasons is because there’s so many of them. Some biologically birthed by their ultra-famous parents Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, others adopted (by their mom alone and then by their dad), and even a set of twins. This modern Hollywood family came together in all sorts of wonderful ways. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh (who prefers to be called John), Vivienne, and Knox are certainly no strangers to the paparazzi and press (making headlines before they were even born or welcomed home), but luckily for them they appear to have two very loving parents ready to help them navigate their inherited fame.
