It’s multiple-birth mania! Sean “Diddy” Combs, 37, and girlfriend Kim Porter welcomed twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James on December 21 in NYC. Tammy Michaels, 32, and Melissa Etheridge, 45, are moms to 2-month-old twins, son Miller and daughter, Johnnie. Ans it’s twin boys for Grey’s Anatomy’s Patrick Dempsey, 40, and makeup artist wife Jillian Fink, 40, who are due early next year. As for Desperate Houswives’ Marcia Cross, 44, and stockbroker hubby Tom Mahoney? They’ll get a double delivery in April.

What’s going on? “More women are turning to assisted reproductive technology,” Isabel Blumberg, an Ob-Gyn at NYC’s Mount Sinai Medical Center, tells Us. Another possible reason? “After age 35, there’s a higher rate of twins.”
