Parenting is filled with so many milestones, and it’s always fun when your kiddos are hitting those milestones so close together.
What are Irish twins?
Irish twins are considered to be siblings who are under 12 months of each other in age. We’re stretching that time frame just a little bit for the sake of some celeb babies.
With what seems like a surge in babies these past few months, I seem to keep hearing about celeb couples or famous Moms who are expecting Irish twins. It seems like they are becoming more and more common. Maybe you’ve heard of some of these famous moms who have growing families.
Check out this list of powerhouse women who have amazing careers AND are raising babies so close in age.
- Pop princess, Britney Spears, welcomed her second son Jayden James just 12 months after the birth of her first, Sean Preston. Her boys were born almost exactly a year apart, they are now 15 and 16 and tower over their Mom in a rare photo of the them on social media.
- Tori Spelling has 5 kids in her brood and two of them are only 10 months apart. Her daughter, Hattie, was just 10 months old when Finn was born.
