What's in the water? Twins also on the way for Marcia Cross!

Update: Our post has been made into a feature on TMZ.

US Weekly reports this week that there’s multiple mania going on in Hollywood! We’ve learned that even more stars who recently announced pregnancies are expecting not one, but two babies this spring!

Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross, 44, made no bones about wanting children soon after her June wedding to Tom Mahoney. She recently announced that she was expecting a baby in April, but now we know she’s actually expecting two!

The actress underwent in-vitro fertilization to achieve the pregnancy, and has spoken in the past about the need for older women to be aware of challenges to their fertility, saying, "I don’t like the average woman being misled into thinking that fertility is something that goes on forever. When a woman gets older, they get a donor egg, which doesn’t make the baby any less beautiful or perfect. One’s own eggs only last so long, and sometimes at 43 or 44 you can have your own baby, but statistically it’s very difficult and expensive. You don’t want to wait that long.

Additionally,we just announced that Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey and his wife Jillian, are expecting twin boys, although a due date is not known. The TV doc and his wife already have a daughter, Tallulah Fyfe, who is 4 1/2.

These two are just the latest addition to our celebrities expecting multiples category – we’re also awaiting twin girls from P. Diddy and longtime girlfriend Kim, a set of boy/girl twins from Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels this fall, a pair of rock and roller twins from singer/songwriters Elvis Costello and Diana Krall in December, and one more set from Stroke’s guitarist Nick Valensi and his wife Amanda de Cadenet, supposedly due any time.
