Does Jim Harbaugh Have Twin Children?

Jim Harbaugh’s children were born in separate years and none came as twins. There are several speculations suggesting that Jim has twins in his home but this is not true. All his seven children were born separately by their moms.

Another twin rumor that has followed Jim is that he and his brother John are twins but this is also not true. In fact, John Harbaugh is the older brother of Jim Harbough. While John was born on 23rd September 1962, Jim was born on 23rd December 1963. Due to the closeness of their birth, people tend to think they are twins but they are not.

Since he joined the Raven in 2008, John has led the team to 145 wins.
