Happy birthday to Angelina Jolie, who turns thirty-nine today! In addition to outdoing most of the rest of us mortals in nearly every field, from intelligence to talent to fame to generosity to wealth to beauty and beyond, she’s also a world-class mom to six seemingly well-adjusted kids. SIX.

If she could just pick one field to focus on intimidating us in, that’d be great, but if she’s really determined to cover all her bases, I’m glad that one of them is parenting, because I have to imagine that six kids are a serious handful. But for as high as that number sounds to me, the Jolie-Pitts are far from the largest family in Hollywood. I was actually pretty surprised how many famous people have four or more kids. Who has time to get all that done? Certainly not Gwyneth Paltrow.

Check out our list of other celebrities with more kids than they can shake a stick at.

1. Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham

Number of kids: 4
Four may not sounds like that many, until you realize that they’re all with the same person. Most of the people on this list are men who have multiple kids with different women, so we’re always impressed when it’s the same parents for the whole…litter? Can you say litter when it’s humans?

But anyway, Mark and Rhea have four children — Ella Rae (b. 2003), Michael (b. 2006), Brendan (b. 2008), and Grace (b. 2010).

2. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

Number of kids: 4
All of Tori and Dean’s kids are with each other as well — Liam (b. 2007), Stella (b. 2008), Hattie (b. 2011), and Finn (b. 2012). Doesn’t like to put a ton of time in between them, does she?

3. Victoria and David Beckham

Number of kids: 4
I kind of feel like Victoria was going to keep having kids until David’s peen coughed up a girl. They have three boys and one girl — Brooklyn (b. 1999), Romeo (b. 2002), Cruz (b. 2005), and Harper (b. 2011).

4. Chris O’Donnell

Number of kids: 5
Chris may not be that famous, but his five kids are all with the same woman (his wife Caroline Fentress) as well, so they make the list with Lily (b. 1999), Christopher (b. 2000), Charles (b. 2003), Finley (b. 2006), Maeve (b. 2007).

5.Taylor Hanson

Number of kids: 5
Taylor was one of seven, and his brothers Isaac and Zac, have three kids each, so Taylor falls right in between with five — Jordan Ezra (b. 2002), Penelope Anne (b. 2005), River Samuel (b. 2006), Viggo Moriah (b. 2008), and Wilhemina ‘Willa’ Jane (b. 2012).

6. Bruce Willis

8. Sarah Palin

I don’t care about this woman, but I’ll take any excuse to remind myself of the ridiculous names of her children: Track (b. 1989), Bristol (b. 1991), Willow (b. 1995), Piper (b. 2001), and Trig (b. 2008).

9. Jim Gaffigan

17. Jon and Kate Gosselin

Number of kids: 8
They shouldn’t technically be on this list, since they’re only famous because they have a bunch of kids, but they made it anyway, because eight is a whole lot. These two have one set of twins, Cara Nicole and Madelyn ‘Mady’ Kate (b. 2000), as well as sextuplets Alexis Faith, Hannah Joy, Aaden Jonathan, Collin Thomas, Leah Hope, and Joel Kevin (b. 2004).

18. Mel Gibson

Number of kids: 8
For such a volatile human, a surprising amount of women have allowed Mel Gibson near their vaginae. Well, two anyway. That’s a surprising amount to me. He has seven children with his first wife, Robyn Moore Gibson – Hannah (b. 1980), twin sons Edward and Christian (b. 1982), Willie (b. 1985), Louis (b. 1988), Milo (b.1990) Tommy (b. 1999) and a daughter, Lucia (b. 2009) from his relationship with Oksana Grigorieva.
