Pop culture fans are well aware that when it comes to Hollywood, the dating pool is more like a small fish bowl.

Across the industry, there is no shortage of celebrity pairings that either totally surprise us, or leave some saying: "I could have seen that coming." There is also no shortage of stars who marry, have kids, split up, and then remarry another star with kids from their own previous relationship – creating the starriest blended families ever. For example: Ben Affleck, who had three kids with first wife Jennifer Garner, divorced, and then married old flame Jennifer Lopez, mom to twins with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. That's quite a star-studded set of parents and step-parents for the Affleck/Garner and Lopez/Anthony kids.

Below, take a look at some of our favorite A-Listers who co-parent, often happily and effectively, with other A-Listers, from Jen, Ben, and Jen, to Salma Hayek and Linda Evangelista, and others.

In 2006, Salma Hayek started dating French billionaire François-Henri Pinault, and  on September 21, 2007, they welcomed their daughter Valentina, 15. They married in 2009, and in 2011, after Linda Evangelista filed legal paperwork seeking child support from the business mogul, it was revealed that François was the father of her son Augustin, 16, who was born on October 11, 2006.

Their kids being half-siblings, Salma and Linda have since formed a friendship, and in fact, Linda recently attended an event with her son hosted by his father and stepmom Salma.

Plus, earlier this year the supermodel shared with Vogue recalled Salma's act of kindness when she fell sick right before Thanksgiving, revealing: "I had told her that I wasn't going to have Thanksgiving; I wasn't feeling well. And she said, 'Oh yes you are. I am coming.' And poof, she was here," adding: "She spent the day in the kitchen and cooked it herself… She made a feast – a beautiful, beautiful meal."
