While neither has given birth to twins, they did give birth to two sons, just one day apart. Nikki and her fiancé (and former “Dancing with the Stars” partner) Artem Chigvintsev welcomed their first child together, Matteo, on July 31, 2020. The next day, Bella and her husband, Daniel Bryan, announced the birth of their second child, Buddy. Brie and Daniel also have a daughter, 4-year-old Birdie.
But their first big roles as two separate characters was on Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” which aired from 2005 to 2008, and then its cruise-based spin-off, “The Suite Life on Deck,” which aired from 2008 to 2011.
After that, both brothers took a break from acting and attended NYU, but they have since returned to acting. Cole stars in “Riverdale” and appeared in the movie “Five Feet Apart.” He’s set to co-star with Lana Condor in the 2022 space rom-com “Moonshot.” Dylan is starring in the upcoming Mindy Kaling series “The Sex Lives of College Girls,” and he appeared in “After We Collided.”
They also costarred as twins in the 2000 film “Seventeen Again” and in the 2002 film “The Hot Chick,” guest-starred in their little brother’s sitcom “Smart Guy” as twins, and costarred in two Disney Channel Original Movies, “Twitches” and “Twitches Too,” once again as long-lost twins — this time, with magical powers.
They then moved to reality TV, with “Tia & Tamera” from 2011 to 2013. They also cowrote a series of books catered to pre-teens, “Twintuition,” that were published from 2016 to 2018.
Since then, they also founded their own side project, The Madden Brothers, in 2014, with success in Australia, and they have started other ventures like clothing brands, production companies, and more.
After graduating, the Bush twins, 39, each pursued their own career paths, but they came together in 2017 to write a joint memoir, “Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life,” and a picture book for children, also called “Sisters First.”
Each was highly successful in their football careers, with Ronde even becoming a Super Bowl champion in 2003.
Tiki retired in 2007, while Ronde played all the way through 2013. The twins have authored eight children’s books together, most recently 2012’s “End Zone.”
During that time, they began filming home videos that became popular with kids throughout the ’90s, as well as starring in feature films like “It Takes Two” in 1995 and “New York Minute” in 2004. They also starred in the sitcoms “Two of a Kind” and “So Little Time,” and the animated series “Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action!”
Off-screen they lent their names and likenesses to books, toys, accessories, zines, and home goods. They retired from acting as a duo in 2004 to concentrate on their fashion careers, though Mary-Kate continued to act through 2011 before retiring the next year.
It ended up being the most-liked photo of 2017.
The twins, who turned 4 in 2021, have an older sister who’s already been nominated for a Grammy, so we can’t wait to see what they’ll do in their futures.
Then, three years later, Malika (and later Khadijah) began appearing on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” as close friends of Khloe.
The Haqq sisters, 38, then starred in their own spin-off called “Dash Dolls” in 2015, focusing on their lives at the Kardashian-owned boutique Dash. It was canceled after one season, but the two remained on “KUWTK” until the end.
The 22-year-olds even signed with CAA to branch out.
They still upload to YouTube three times a week, and they currently have 23.9 million subscribers on their main channel.
Marissa is also an actor, like her brother, appearing in films such as “Dazed and Confused” and “Pleasantville.” But she also started her own fashion brand, Whitley Kros, in 2007.
Aaron played Jimmy Olsen, Clark Kent’s best friend in four seasons of “Smallville,” and has also appeared in “Fringe,” “Killjoys,” and most recently the Netflix series “Locke & Key,” based on the comic of the same name.
His twin, Shawn, has even more comic-book cred to his name. He played Iceman in four “X-Men” movies and had a role in the second season of “The Boys” as Lamplighter. He’s also appeared in “Smallville” and “Fringe,” like his twin, and currently stars on “The Rookie.”
They’ve continued to work together, popping up in “The Grinder,” “Crashing,” and “The High Court with Doug Benson.”
In 2021, they got a story credit and co-produced “Judas and the Black Messiah,” which was nominated for best picture and best original screenplay at the Oscars, among other nods. Daniel Kaluuya won best supporting actor for his performance.
The two, 33, remained close into adulthood, with Aaron even walking Angel down the aisle at her wedding in 2014.
However, their bond soured at some point, with Angel and Nick filing restraining orders against their brother in 2019.
