Grammy Award-winning singer Lauryn Hill gave birth to her sixth child over the weekend. Hill and longtime boyfriend Rohan Marley, son of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley, added a boy to their already large clan, which includes Zion, Selah, Joshua, John and Sarah. Now that’s a lot of birthdays to remember! With six kids, maybe Lauryn Hill is hoping to start a family music group. We mean, these kids are a mix of Hill and Marley, that’s a recipe for musical genius right there.
Hill’s baby news had us thinking about other Hollywood families overflowing with kids.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
From adopting in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam to giving birth to their biological children in Namibia and Nice, France, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been all over the world to add to the Jolie-Pitt brood. If Angie and Brad decided to give up acting, they could always make a living off of their children! Shiloh was dubbed “the world’s most famous baby” by Madamn Tussauds wax museum when they re-created the then-two-month-old baby. The rights for the first photos of twins Vivienne and Knox were sold to People Magazine and Hello! for a reported 14 million dollars (almost as much as Pitt and Jolie are making for a movie these days)!
David and Victoria Beckham and their three boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, welcomed a baby girl, Harper Seven, into the family earlier this month. While they said this is going to be their last baby, we hope they keep having kids and maybe someday Beckham will be able to field his own soccer team. (Talk about a hot soccer mom, but hold the mini-van please!)
Heidi Klum and SealHeidi Klum and Seal renew their wedding vows every year on their anniversary and now they have an assortment of homemade ring bearers and flower girls for the ceremonies. The model-musician pair have four kids, Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou. We wonder if they will follow in Seal’s footsteps with a career in music or take their mother’s path toward modeling, TV show hosting/producing and acting.
While things didn’t work out well for reality TV stars like Octamom or Jon and Kate Gosselin, we hope these celeb baby armies prevail.
