UPDATED: George Clooney to join the parents of multiples club
George and Amal Clooney let the cat out of the bag - they're expecting twins too!

The Internet is abuzz with the "twins" announcements!

Recently, Beyoncé shared an Instagram image showing off her baby bump, announcing their family would be growing by two. Then Madonna revealed she adopted a set of twin girls from Malawi.

And now, superstar George Clooney and international law and human rights advocate Amal Clooney are expecting twins as well. The Talk's Julie Chen reported that the power couple are expecting and are meant to welcome their twins in June 2017.

Matt Damon, who starred alongside George in hit movies Oceans 11, 12 and 13, told ET Canada he almost cried when George told him the good news a few weeks back.

Having more than one baby can be a little overwhelming at first, but once you arm yourself with some information, it becomes less daunting.

There are also a few complications you may encounter, such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes or even a miscarriage. How many women with multiples cope is through learning as much as possible and having a solid support structure.

When expecting twins or multiples, the pregnancy is classified as high risk and you would more than likely have a few more check ups than women who are pregnant with one baby.

Even though the idea of having more than one baby at one time may be terrifying, there are a number of reasons why multiple pregnancies are great! Quite a number celebrities have had multiple pregnancies, here are a few of them:

Beyoncé and Jay Z:

Beyoncé shared an image on Instagram and mentioned their family would be growing by two. She and Jay Z are already parents to 5-year-old Blue Ivy.

She also released the pictures of her underwater maternity shoot and writes on how she now has three hearts, along with Venus - the goddess who inspired it.

A few nude shots were also released showing off her form in all its glory.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony:

JLo and, then husband, Marc Anthony welcomed fraternal twins in February 2008. Their son's name is Maximilian David Muñiz and their daughter is Emme Maribel Muñiz. The twins carry their dad's surname - Muñiz. Marc Anthony is a stage name, the singer's birth name is Marco Antonio Muñiz.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka:

Then you have those special cases where, if it's your first pregnancy, you are instantly outnumbered. While Hollywood has quite a number of celebrities who have had twins, there are others, like Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh who welcomed triplets last month. We are yet to see the trio or learn what their names are.

There is also Kate Gosselen who, after having twins, had sextuplets.

Then there is Natalie Suleman, formerly known as Nadya Suleman, who had six kids which included a set of twins. She then wanted one more baby, but instead ended up with eight more. She's also known as the "Octomom", but has 14 kids in total.
