Are you sure you know which celebrities are related? Some celebrity siblings like Serena and Venus Williams look similar while others look so much alike that it’s easy to get them confused. The Baldwin brothers? So close it can be a little creepy to look at them all together. Mónica and Penelope Cruz? Practically twins.
But not every celebrity sibling pair look that similar — even when they’re celebrity twins. If these famous sisters and brothers didn’t have their last names in common, we definitely wouldn’t have spotted them as siblings. We’ve put their pictures side by side, and we still find ourselves having to squint.
Can you see the genetic connection between these siblings? Or do you need to see their birth certificates to be 100 percent sure? Read on and get ready to be surprised at who you see on the list, and let us know if you saw the resemblance or if you were taken by surprise too.
Here’s an announcement we didn’t see coming: Eddie Murphy is about to be a father—for the ninth time.
According to E! News, a spokesperson for 54-year-old Murphy confirmed the news Wednesday. The mom-to-be is the comedian’s girlfriend, Paige Butcher, 36. Butcher is expected to give birth in May.
Reports suggest that the parents-to-be have been together for at least four years. In 2013, the expectant mom opened up to Vanity Fair about struggling to date a celebrity and her decision to quit social media.
“I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there,” she said. “I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now.”
This will be Butcher’s first child. Murphy is already father to Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13; from his previous marriage to “Hollywood Exes” star Nicole Murphy. He also fathered 26-year-old Eric with ex-girlfriend Paulette McNeely, 25-year-old Christian with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood, and 8-year-old Angel with TV personality Mel B.
According to the Daily Mail, both Murphy and Winfrey have been confirmed as cast members of the film. Murphy will play play Pryor’s father, Leroy “Buck Carter” Pryor; Winfrey will play Pryor’s grandmother, who ran a brothel and raised the legendary comic there.
The two will join Mike Epps, who will play Pryor, and Kate Hudson, who is set to play Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor. Epps’ highly coveted, lead role was also auditioned for by Nick Cannon and Marlon Wayans, according to the report. After much deliberation about securing a powerhouse cast, The Weinstein Company and director Lee Daniels are slated to start production in March, after wrapping up the second season of his hit Fox series, Empire.
With such a star-studded cast, this film is sure to be one of the biggest, most talked about productions upon its big screen reveal.

Don’t know if you noticed but the Oscars didn’t exactly have that much for Black people. With the exception of Common and John Legend performing and winning the Academy Award for their song “Glory,” the show was a sea of White faces. It’s the reason we didn’t live tweet the show like we usually do. Instead, we simply showed you what our faves were wearing on the carpet. So in honor of our disappointment and in anticipation for tonight’s BET Honors, we’re highlighting some of the Blackest moments from award shows in the past decade or so.

One Movie, Many Roles: 15 Actors Who Played Multiple Characters
The last time Eddie Murphy made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” was Dec. 15, 1984. Thirty-one years later, it appears Murphy will finally return to the show that helped make him a star. In an interview with Roland Martin for NewsOne Now, Murphy said he’d appear on the forthcoming 40th anniversary special for “SNL” that NBC will air on Feb. 15.
“It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it,” Murphy said when asked why he hadn’t appeared on “SNL” in decades. “They’re actually having a 40th anniversary, I think, in two weeks. I’m going to that, and that’ll be the first time I’ve been back since I left.”
A representative for NBC was not immediately available for comment.
Murphy’s acrimonious history with the show dates back to a joke David Spade made about him on Weekend Update during the 1990s, when Murphy’s career had hit a low point after “Vampire in Brooklyn.” (“Look, children, a falling star.”)
