List of people with two sets of twins, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. It is rare to have one set of twins, but several celebrities have quadruple the fun with two pairs of twins. Some of these famous folks used fertility treatments to get pregnant, while others did things the old fashioned way. One famous mom even used a surrogate to have her twins.

Who is the most famous person who has two sets of twins? Tennis star Roger Federer tops our list. Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka Vavrinec, had twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva in 2009, and their second set of twins, Leo and Lennart ("Lenny") was born in 2014. MLB player-turned-politician Jim Bunning and his wife, Mary Catherine, are also parents to two sets of twins.

Former host of "Good Morning America" Joan Lunden also has two sets of twins with her husband, Jeff Konigsberg: Max and Kate (born 2003) and Jack and Kimberly (born 2005). She had both sets through surrogacy, and she has since become a surrogacy advocate.
