24 sets of celebrity twins, from A-list kids to singing siblings

The Doublemint twins and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen may have kicked off our obsession with carbon copies, but the more you look, the more you begin to see double in Hollywood and abroad.

A-list parents from Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer to Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have their own playful pairs and often dress the duos in adorable complementary outfits.

And Europe's royals are no strangers to twins, either. Crown Prince Fredrik and Princess Mary of Denmark have a twosome of their own, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, while Princess Charlene of Monaco gave birth to a precious pair with Prince Albert.

But stars of song and screen are also among the high-profile twins, including Canadians Tegan and Sara and Aaron and Shawn Ashmore.

A 2012 report in the New York Times revealed that one in 30 births results in twins , and according to the National Centre for Health Statistics, the rate of multiple births rose by 76% between 1980 and 2009!

Twins: they’re everywhere.
