The busy and dynamic nature of Hollywood hasn’t stopped these stars from having extra-large families. Here are eight celebrities who boast of a large clan.
Amid the glam and bustle of Hollywood, many A-list celebrities have managed to find their highest fulfillment in their families. While some find bliss in a small household, others live for having an extra-large family.
From Eddie Murphy, who is a proud father of 10 beautiful children, to veteran actor Clint Eastwood who has eight kids and several grandkids, here are the Hollywood stars with the largest families.

At 90-years-old, Clint Eastwood has undoubtedly become a legend. However, among his array of roles, being a father resonates deeply with him and has no end. The actor is a proud father of eight children from six women.
Scott, Alison, Kathryn, Francesa, and Morgan followed in their father’s acting footsteps. His daughter Kimber is a producer, while his son Kyle is a musician. Eastwood also has an older estranged daughter, Laurie.

The former teen idol came from a large brood, so it came as no surprise that the singer and actor replicated that with his nuclear family. Donny shares five wonderful sons with his longtime wife, Debbie Osmond.
This list wouldn’t be complete without the iconic Kardashian-Jenner clan.
The boys ― Donald Jr., Jeremy, Brandon, Christopher, and Joshua ― are all married and have blessed the “Soldier of Love” crooner with 12 amazing grandchildren, with the latest joining the family in December 2020.
Following in her brother’s steps, Marie Osmond of the “Donny & Marie” duo has eight kids. She welcomed her first son Stephen James Craig during her first marriage to Stephen Lyle Craig.
During her second union with Brian Blosil, Marie became a mother to Rachael, Matthew, Jessica, Michael, Brandon, Brianna, and Abigail. Unfortunately, Michael took his life in 2010 when he was just 18.
ALEC AND HILARIA BALDWIN
With six kids under the age of seven in their abode, power couple Alec and Hilaria Baldwin have a busy household. The couple welcomed their oldest daughter, Carmen, in August 2013, more than a year after their union. Rafael was born five months later.
Leonardo in September 2016. Romeo arrived in May 2018. After two miscarriages, the family had a miracle with Eduardo in September 2020. Within months of Eduardo’s birth, the duo secretly had their sixth child. Alec has an older daughter, Ireland.
Perhaps the king of extra-large families is comedian Eddie Murphy. The “Coming 2 America” star has 10 children from five different women. He welcomed daughters Bella, Zola, Shayne, Bria, and son Miles from his ex-wife Nicole Murphy.
He welcomed daughter Angel Iris with former singer Mel B and his son Christian with Tamara Hood. Murphy has two kids, daughter Izzy and son Max Charles, with his current fiancée Paige Butcher.
Despite her stellar career as one of the greatest pop stars of all times, Madonna puts her six children as her topmost priority. Her oldest kids, Lourdes Maria Leon and Rocco Ritchie are well into adulthood with thriving careers in the entertainment industry.
The other four, David, Mercy, and twin daughters Estere and Stella, were all adopted by the “Vogue” singer from Malawi in Africa. Madonna has previously opened up about how the kids sometimes struggle with her fame.
ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT
The Jolie-Pitt clan consists of six beautiful children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox. Jolie adopted Maddox from Cambodia and Zahara from Ethiopia before her romance with Pitt.

As a couple, Jolie and Pitt adopted Pax from Vietnam and biologically welcomed Shiloh and the twins. Amid her controversial divorce from the “Fight Club” star, Jolie has often credited her kids for giving her strength and helping her find her true self.
This list wouldn’t be complete without the iconic Kardashian-Jenner clan, which consists of Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Ron, Kendall, and Kylie with matriarch Kris Jenner. Jenner welcomed her first four kids during her marriage to lawyer Rob Kardashian.
