Celebrities With Irish Twins

Hello everyone! To finish off our Irish Week here on Beloved Baby Names, I wanted to write about something that's not exactly Irish, but has Irish in the name: Irish twins. Irish twins are babies born a year a part or less. If you're curious about the origin of the term, you can read about it here. There are several celebs who have kids who fit the description so I wanted to share their names with you today.

First up we have Sean Preston and Jayden James, sons of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. Sean Preston was born September 14th, 2005 and Jayden James was born September 12th, 2006. They went for pretty trendy sounding names, though this was the first time I remember hearing the name Jayden. It was already in the top 100 by 2006, though.

Whoa K names! Next we have Kroy Jagger Jr. and Kash Kade, sons of Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann Sr.  Kroy Jagger Jr., who I believe sometimes goes by K.J., was born May 31st, 2011 and Kash Kade was born August 15th, 2012. Technically, they're 14 months apart but that still counts by some definitions of Irish twins. Just over a year after Kash was born, Kim gave birth to actual twins Kane Ren and Kaia Rose. I guess that makes these four Irish twins squared! They also have two older daughters Ariana and Brielle.

Joseph Michael and Sundance Thomas are the sons of Kerri Walsh and Casey Jennings. Joseph Michael was born on May 22, 2009 and Sundance Thomas was born on May 19th, 2010. Kerri has said in interviews that she had Irish Twins on purpose. I must say that these are some of the most oddly matched sibling names that I've ever heard. I don't dislike them but it's hard to believe that the same people who named their first son Joseph named their second son Sundance, and just a year later! In 2013, they also welcomed a daughter named Scout. Clearly they favor unusual word names. I guess Joseph must have some special significance. 

Maxwell Drew and Ace Knute are the daughter and son of Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson. Their daughter Maxwell Drew was born on May 1st 2012 and their son Ace Knute was born on June 30th, 2013. These are also more like 14 months apart but that still counts by some definitions. When I here Ace Knute and Maxwell Drew on a girl, I think "classic celebrity baby names".

Hattie Margaret and Finn Davey are my favorite names on this list! They are the daughter and son of Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. Hattie Margaret was born on October 10th, 2011 and Finn Davey  was born on August 30th 2012. I really like their classic but fun style. The McDermotts also have a Stella, Liam, and Jack.

Which of these sets was your favorite? Do you prefer that siblings names have a similar style or should you just choose whichever name you love the most, regardless of style?

God bless you and thanks for reading!
