Diddy, Denzel Washington, Garcelle Beauvais: Black Celebrities Who Are Parenting Twins

Latina diva Jennifer Lopez recently went uber emotional on an audience as she sang love songs she wrote about her former flames. According to J-Lo, the tears weren’t for any of the men, but were prompted by a photograph of her twins Max and Emme that was projected on a screen above her.

“There is love, and there is love,” J-Lo told the crowd. “And, then, there is love.” The last reference being about her twins.

When it comes to the birth of dynamic duos, it seems there might be something in the “industry” water, because there is no shortage of celebrities who are experiencing what it’s like to raise two at a time.
