We’re seeing double everywhere in Hollywood this year!
There has been an apparent “twin trend” going on in the world of showbiz lately and it all started with celebrity couple Beyonce and Jay Z announcing their pregnancy.
Well, Beyonce has always been a trendsetter in all ways but this time, they were followed by two more celebs who were also going to be the proud parents of twins – yet another power couple George and Amal Clooney, and Madonna who has decided to adopt twins.
Now could there be anything else that Beyonce can’t set the trend for?
Beyonce and Jay Z
It was last week that Beyonce announced on Instagram, that she was pregnant with twins. She had posted a stunning photo of her pregnant self, proudly showing off her baby bump.
According to The Mirror, the couple had been trying to conceive for years since their first child Blue Ivy (who is now 5) was born. Now that they have been blessed with twins, they said that it’s “a great feeling”.
Beyonce shared her happiness through Instagram by mentioning in her photo caption “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes – The Carters”
George and Amal Clooney
George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney are reported by a number of sources to be expecting twins. What’s more, they are also reportedly expecting a boy and a girl.
They had tied the knot in the year 2014, despite George Clooney declaring that he would never get married or have kids. He had often been called a perpetual bachelor for the same reason. But now, he is happily married to Amal and is now expecting not one, but two kids.
The news came as a surprise to the couple, and the fact that it was going to be a boy and a girl made them both really happy. They said they feel like they’ve hit the family jackpot.
Well, we can just imagine how happy they would be, especially George who would be becoming a dad for the first time at 55.
Joining the twin bandwagon is also Madonna, who announced last Wednesday on her Instagram that she has adopted twin girls from Malawi. She was granted the permission by the Malawi High Court last week after months of going through the adoption process confidentially.
She stated that she was “overjoyed” to bring them into her family and she had posted a picture of herself with the two girls – Esther and Stella Mwale, wearing identical blue and white dresses, walking along a rural pathway.
She wrote in her post, “I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family.”
The Material girl, already had four children – David Banda and Mercy James both of whom she adopted in 2009 from Malawi, daughter Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon with ex Carlos Leon and Rocco Ritchie with ex Guy Ritchie.
Let’s wish all the very best in raising twins to all these happy and proud parents.
