Yahoo Contributor Network

The news broke in an interview with US Weekly that Anna Paquin and her husband, Stephen Moyer are expecting twins. The twins will be Paquin's first. Moyer came into the relationship with two of his own, Billy, 12, and Lilac, 10. The news was spilled by fellow "True Blood" star Sam Trammell, who himself is the father of twins.

"I'm so excited for them," Trammell said. "We sent them a special gift. It's so interesting that 'True Blood' has become, like, the 'twins' show."

Outside of the "True Blood" cast, there are a lot of twins running around Hollywood right now.

Julia Roberts

Hollywood queen, Julia Roberts, is the mother of two twins herself, seven year olds Hazel and Phinnaeus. The twins are two of three kids, the other being four year old Henry, for Roberts and her husband Danny Moder.

The actress mentioned in interviews during the junkets for "Mirror Mirror" that her kids are just now realizing that their mother is a famous movie star. However, her fairy tale movie started to pull back the fabric of that part of her life for her kids. "They're starting to get it. This is the movie that has prompted the most questions," she said.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt received a lot of attention for the three children they adopted but the couple also have three of their own. The most recent additions to the Power Couple's family were twins, Knox and Vivienne, born in 2008. In interesting trivia, the couple sold the rights to their twin's first photographs to People magazine for $11 million, which they then donated to charity.

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka welcomed their twins into the world in 2010. Born to a surrogate, the children, Gideon and Harper, were introduced to Oprah Winfrey for her talk show in 2012. Harris said in the interview that his partner is the more maternal parent while he is able to work, but he also enjoys the bonding time with his kids.

"We didn't accidentally get pregnant and decide that now we need to make this work," Harris said. "These kids came into our world with nothing but love."
