Glimpse at These Hollywood Celebrities Who Have a Lot of Children
While celebrities are most often famous due to their acting roles in movies and series or sports endeavors, many A-Listers are also well-known for having large families.
Eddie Murphy, Rod Stewart, and Clint Eastwood are high up of Hollywood's biggest families, while Angelina Jolie and Madonna are at the lower end of the spectrum.
Eddie Murphy is at the forefront with his brood of 10, but Rod Stewart is close at his heels with a total of eight. Clint Eastwood also has eight kids. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt follow with their six children, like pop-queen Madonna.

Eddie Murphy became a father for the tenth time in 2018 when he welcomed Max Charles into his blended family. Eddie's eldest is Bria Murphy (31) who shared a photo of the entire gang on Instagram in 2018. She wrote:
Even though Eddie is papa to quite a few kids, this has not stopped the director and actor from furthering his career. In 2020, the star was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role as Rudy Ray Moore in "Dolemite Is My Name."
Rod Stewart has eight children from five different women, Susannah Boffey, Alana Stewart, Kelly Emberg, Rachel Hunter, and his current wife, Penny Lancaster. Apparently, the rock star remains on good terms with all his exes.

In 2019, Rod shared a post with Rachel Hunter, Kelly Emberg, and Alana Stewart at his daughter Kimberly's 40th birthday party. In good humor, he called the picture a mother's reunion.
Like Rod, Clint has eight children with various women, Laurie, Kimber, Kyle, Alison, Scott, Kathryn, Francesca, and Morgan. His eldest daughter, Laurie, was seen for the first time with them. Tom Leonard argued that:
"Eastwood quietly worked his way through women."
In 2019, his whole family attended "The Mule," It was then that Laurie, his eldest daughter, was pictured for the first time born to Clint when he was only a 24-year-old lifeguard.

Angelina Jolie has Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and the twins Knox and Vivienne with her husband, Brad Pitt. But the mother to six says that refugees have taught her about family, resilience, dignity, and survival.
Jolie has traveled to countries like Sierra Leone, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, Thailand, and Colombia as a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Her eldest daughter is Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon (Lola), Rocco Ritchie is 21, Mercy James is 14, David Banda is 15, and Madonna's youngest are the twins Stella and Estere, who are eight.
