Twins are double the exhaustion, double the nightly feedings, and for these moms, double the love! Which lucky celebrity moms said hello to two tiny faces on delivery day?

Jennifer Lopez

Singer, actress and "American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez isn't only juggling her busy career, she's also balancing her 4-year-old twins, daughter Emme and son Max. Lopez refers to her adorable twosome affectionately as her "coconuts" and stays connected with her little ones by taking them with her as much as possible when she's on the road traveling for her busy career.

Now a single mother since beginning divorce proceedings with ex Marc Anthony, the beautiful singer makes it all look effortless.

Mariah Carey

Singer Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon welcomed twins Moroccon and Monroe into the world one year ago. Cannon says that since having the babies, Carey knows "what being a woman is about."

The singing star has said her babies were "a huge blessing" and she struggled with infertility issues. She's been back on stage since losing her pregnancy weight and still sounding great. A tour may be in the works for this busy mom.

Rebecca Romijn

Romijn is a former model and has been seen in such movies as "X-Men." She has said that being a mother makes her feel "whole" and her and her husband, actor Jerry O'Connell, are having a "blast" with their girls. She was recently seen in the Tyler Perry film "Good Deeds."

"21 Jump Street" actress Holly Robinson Peete is the mom to twins Rodney and Ryan. She's recently made the news because of her husband's book about their son Rodney's autism. Her and her daughter, Rodney's twin sister Ryan, co-wrote a children's book about a sibling's perspective of autism.

The busy author and actress wants to put autism on the forefront and help parents and kids cope with the issue. She appears as a recurring guest star on the comedy show "Mike and Molly."
