Twinning: 25 Celebs We Had No Idea Actually Have A Twin

Having a twin is a great experience that many wish they could have. Sharing a womb together for nine months gives them a special bond that regular siblings just don’t have. One could say they are soul partners. Be it fraternal or identical, they are closer than other siblings in a lot of different ways. There are even myths that a bond between twins is so strong, that if one is hurt or scared, the other will know without being anywhere near each their twin. How amazing would that be?

Now over in Hollywood, everyone knows all about famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but what many don’t know is that there are actually over a dozen more famous celebrities over in Hollywood that have shared the womb with a soul partner.
