Everything in this slideshow
Alexis Bledel, better known by some as Rory Gilmore (her character on cult-favorite show Gilmore Girls), welcomed her first child into the world with husband Vincent Kartheiser, otherwise known as Pete Campbell in Mad Men. The duo kept their 2014 California marriage and recent pregnancy super hush-hush, but there's no hiding the birth of a baby—right? Think again. Gilmore Girls co-star, Scott Patterson, spilled the secret news about the fall (yes—fall!) baby in an interview with Glamour. The baby must be over 6 months old now! Wow, Bledel. Way to keep us in the dark.
Melissa Rycroft's days on The Bachelor, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team and two seasons of Dancing with the Stars are over, because now she's a mom of three! Rycroft and Tye Strickland named their son Cayson Jack, and shared the exciting news with a simple and sweet tweet that read, "Cayson Jack. 5-18-16. Welcome to the world little one." The little bundle has two older siblings, 5-year-old Ava Grace and 2-year-old Beckett Thomas. Aww!
Soleil Moon Frye
Soleil Moon Frye gave birth to her fourth baby with her internet entrepreneur hubba, Jason Goldberg. The duo gave their newborn son quite the dreamy first name—Story. The name choice is different, but not shocking, as the pair tends to be quite poetic when it comes to naming their offspring. Story's sisters, 10-year-old Poet Sienna Rose and 8-year-old Jagger Joseph Blue, and brother, 2-year-old Lyric Sonny Roads, are thrilled about their new baby brother. Frye told People, "The kids are all so excited and loving their baby brother." Sweet welcome for Story! And let's face it—if your name is Soleil Moon Frye, you're probably not going to name your baby James...
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are now parents of two girls! Amada Lee Gosling is the newest addition to the beautiful family, and we can't help but notice the new baby's first name is the same as her older sister's middle name. Yup—you read that right! Baby Amada Lee's older sister is 20-month-old, Esmerelda Amada. Well, the sisters already have a few things in common and we can tell this name must mean a lot to Mendes and Gosling. Mendes told People in 2014 that Amada, which means 'beloved' in Spanish, was her grandmother's name. So deep, and different.
Nicole Johnson and Michael Phelps
Nicole Johnson and her fiancé, Michael Phelps, welcomed their first child into the world on Cinco de Mayo. Boomer Robert Phelps is happy and healthy, according to Phelp's sweet Instagram caption which revealed the birth of his child. Also in the caption, Phelps insists he's experiencing the "best feeling" he's ever felt in his life. Wow, so being a new parent feels better than winning 18 olympic gold medals? We would love to take a moment to put this into perspective, but we're too focused on his biceps right now to care. Sigh…
Jenni "JWoww" Farley
Jersey Shore star, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, and her husband, Roger Mathews, welcomed their second child into the world. Cinco de Mayo baby, Greyson Valor Mathews, was born weighing 7 lbs. and 2 oz. Mom and Baby are both healthy and feelin' good—so it seems JWoww's fit pregnancy really paid off! Fist pump for ya, JWoww! Oh wait, is that not cool anymore? NVM.
Lauren Kitt Carter
Nick Carter and wifey, Lauren Kitt Carter, had their baby boy and named him Odin Reign Carter. Leading up to the birth, Carter took to Twitter and tweeted, "Baby watch continues. Thank you for all your prayers and warm wishes!" Meanwhile, Lady Carter took to Instagram to post a sporty bump selfie, captioned, "Patiently waiting #40weeks #naturalbirth #homebirth #midwifery #birthwithoutfear." We loved getting the scoop on her prenatal fitness tips, and now we're just super interested in how this said home birth went down. *Staying tuned for more deets!*
Our favorite pregnant lady, Chrissy Teigen, is a mom! The model/cookbook author welcomed her first child, a girl named Luna Simone Stephens, with husband John Legend on Thursday, April 14 and made the big reveal the Sunday after. “She’s here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Very sleepy,” Teigen wrote on Instagram, alongside a pic of the baby’s weight (6 lbs., 11 oz.). Legend also tweeted the news: “Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn’t be happier!” And we couldn’t be happier for the couple. We’re sure her journey into new motherhood will be just as big of a blast as her pregnancy!
It was just weeks ago that Kelly Clarkson shook up the American Idol stage and took the country by storm on social media with her moving performance of "Piece by Piece." She and hubby Brandon Blackstock officially expanded their family and welcomed a brand new baby boy, Remington Alexander Blackstock, into their budding family. Remmy—err, Remington—has one older sister, 22-month-old River Rose Blackstock. We not only love the couple's name choice, but we can't get over how sweet it sounds alongside his sister's name! Aww, Remington and River!
The Intern star, Anne Hathaway, and actor/jewelry-maker hubby, Adam Shulman, are officially parents after keeping their pregnancy on the low. We're all for Hathaway being humble and protecting her pregnancy, but man, we were really left in the dark—and totally shocked by the newborn boy's name! Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman—let that sink in.
Sure, we love catching inspiration from celeb's bold naming picks, but we totally understand the duo's first-name choice due to Hathaway's classic nature. But, Rosebanks? We found out it's a combination of meaningful names. Rose comes from Hathaway's paternal grandfather, Roseline, and Banks comes from Shulman's mother's maiden name, Banks. What do you think about the middle name?
Allison Holker and Stephen "tWitch" Boss announced the arrival of Maddox Laurel Boss on Holker's Twitter feed. "We had an EASTER BABY!!" Holker tweets. She continues, "8 lbs 15 oz, and very healthy. He is surrounded by so much LOVE." Our March cover girl exclusively confided in Fit Pregnancy and Baby about predictions of hip hop music bumpin' in the hospital room on her delivery day, and we can't wait to hear more about what actually went down. We are so excited for this full-of-life fam, and we're sure the little bundle will totally live up to his name! #babyboss #babybossboy #madboss
It's a healthy boy for #WomenWhoWork founder, Ivanka Trump, and husband, Jared Kushner! Theodore James Kushner is the brand new baby sibling to 2-year-old, Joseph Frederick, and 4½-year-old, Arabella Rose. Let's just take a moment to talk about the big elephant—or big ol' Trump—in the room. Aside from growing a family, running a business and being in the limelight, Ivanka's daddy-o is trying to be POTUS and it's far from stress-free for the fam. So how did the roaring republican's daughter keep her head straight through it all? This savvy lady knows stress during pregnancy can be linked to issues including brain disorders and preterm birth, so she grabbed her suitcase and jetted off to Belize for a calming babymoon. Ivanka's R&R vacay may have been just what the doc. prescribed, and we're taking some serious self-care notes. Thanks, Ivanka!
The Late Night with Seth Meyers host and his wifey—a human rights lawyer—Alexi, just added a new member to the family, and it's their first child. The jokester admitted to tearing up when Alexi accepted his proposal to wed, so we can't help but wonder if Seth got a little sappy at the sight of his first born. Congrats to the happy couple!
Country singer and Fit Pregnancy and Baby cover star Jana Kramer and her husband, former NFL tight-end Michael Caussin, welcomed their first child, a daughter named Jolie Rae Caussin, on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016. The new mom has already promised not to listen to "anyone else's advice" about parenthood. "I just hope my daughter forgives me for all the things I get wrong along the way," she told Fit Pregnancy.
Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth are officially parents! A friend of the two told People back in July that the One Direction heartthrob is "very excited about becoming a dad" and thinks Briana will be "an amazing mother." While the young parents didn't quite plan this pregnancy, we're sure that handsome baby will get all of the love (and then some!) that he needs.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, have welcomed their first child together—a son, named Ace Wells Tucker, born January 6. The couple met when Tucker was a line producer on RHOA. Burruss, who wrote songs like TLC's "No Scrubs" and Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills," is already mom to Riley, 13, and Tucker is dad to Kaela, 19, both from previous relationships. Congrats to the reality star couple!
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Lauren Hashian
It's a baby girl for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Lauren Hashian! Just four days ago Lauren joked on her Instagram feed about her baby being a little, well, not so little. "#LetsJustHopeBigDaddyDoesn't=20lbBaby," she captioned her adorable post. We totally get why she was so nervous, and we are thrilled about her successful delivery—and for the fact that the babe did NOT weigh in at 20 pounds!
Kim Kardashian West
This last pregnancy for Kim Kardashian West has been a far from easy ride. Kanye West let his wifey take to the spotlight and falunt her sexy maternity style as they battled some serious health scares together. The last dilemma occurred just days ago, when Kim was trying to find a work-around so she could deliver her breech baby vaginally—fortunately, the baby was turned just in time. This morning, the duo welcomed their son into the world, but the details are being kept private for right now. We can't wait to hear what North's baby bro's name is! Plus, we have to find out if the mom of two got her million dollar push present...
Oh, happy days for Coco Austin and Ice-T! Social media obsessed over speculating if Coco's pregnancy was a farce due to her itty-bitty baby bump—but it turns out, as we expected, Coco was really expecting. The proud parents decided to give social media something else to focus on, so they set their newborn up with an Instagram account that already has 92.5K followers. Baby Chanel Nicole has definitely gained a few followers over here!
Congrats to Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler—baby number three is officially here! The fashion designer and former Laguna Beach star announced the news in a well crafted Instagram post. Her gram involved a photo of a pretty pink baby onesie, bows and a birth card which reveals her little girl was born weighing seven pounds and six ounces. Sounds like the third Cav is off to a healthy start! What might be even more exciting is now we know what name she chose for her little one—and we love it. Welcome to the world, Saylor James Cutler.
Carey Mulligan has given birth to her first child with musician husband Marcus Mumford (of Mumford & Sons)! The 30-year-old actress kept the news on the quiet and only revealed it when she appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote her new movie, Suffragette. "It is a girl and she's three weeks old," Mulligan said. Congrats to the couple, who has been married since April 2012.
Former Glee star Naya Rivera has welcomed her first child with husband, actor Ryan Dorsey. Son Josey Hollis Dorsey arrived on Sept. 17 in Los Angeles. Rivera, 28, and the former Justified star, 32, revealed the pregnancy back in February with a "Bun in the oven!" Instagram post. Then, a bikini shot back in April revealed that this was one hot mama-to-be. "When I reached the final leg of my pregnancy, I was ecstatic. I could see the finish line and it felt so good," Rivera told People. We're so happy for the duo!
Leighton Meester and Adam Brody
Leighton Meester and husband Adam Brody are parents! The baby was born last week, according to US Weekly, and he or she (the name or gender has not been revealed) is the first child for the The Gossip Girl star and The O.C. actor. The couple tied the knot last February in a hush-hush ceremony in Northern California. There had been rumors of a potential pregnancy since October when the 29-year-old actress told Nylon: "Most people I know are starting to get married. It'll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff." Well, she's officially a grown up now!
Lucy Liu is a mom for the first time, at 46. The actress "is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier," her rep confirmed to People. The Elementary star shared this adorable picture of who she called "the new little man in my life" on social media yesterday. Although he's her first child, Liu has dedicated herself to helping children all over the world as a UNICEF volunteer since 1994. Now she has her own little one to take care of. So sweet!
Jenna Bush Hager
The Bush and Hager families are celebrating a brand new member of the family! TODAY correspondent, Jenna Bush Hager, and hubby Henry are over the moon about the birth of their healthy (adorable) baby girl. What's even sweeter is the classy couple named their darling offspring after Jenna's grandfather and former president, George H.W. Bush—and no, they didn't name her Georgie or Georgia.
Jenna shared this sweet family shot (minus her oldest daughter) on her Instagram, along with a caption that read, "Welcome to the WORLD Poppy Louise Hager—named after my darling Gamps who went by Poppy during his childhood. We are in LOVE."
After making a beautiful tribute to someone who means a lot to both of them, Henry told TODAY, "We are proud to name her after a man we so adore." Aw…
Big news for Zooey Deschanel: She just became a mom and a wife! The New Girl star not only welcomed a daughter with beau Jacob Pechenik, but the couple reportedly got married in secret, too. The new baby girl was born in Austin, Texas, in late July, according to the New York Post, with the wedding happening sometime after. The duo announced their engagement in January, after news broke about the baby on the way.
The actress didn't always have the easiest time while pregnant: "You can't have sushi, you can't have cheese that tastes good," she told Jimmy Kimmel. We should have known Zooey would keep all this big news on the hush-hush, since she was so good at hiding her baby's sex, even from herself: "You're like, 'Don't tell me, don't tell me!' " she remembered on a March appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, of her ultrasound appointment. "The last time the technician [said], 'Just so you know, I always use the pronoun he—it's just my habit.' She set it up because we were paranoid. Most people want to find out." Double congrats to the couple!
It's a baby girl for Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross! The stars, wed back in September, welcomed the newborn, with the appropriately rocking-out name Jagger Snow Ross, on July 30. The new little bundle joins Simpson's 6-year-old son Bronx from her previous marriage to Pete Wentz. The big brother is said to be thrilled to have a little sis. "He's excited that it's a girl. He thinks it's cute—the tea parties—she'll be adorable," Simpson told E! News. Ross is equally stoked to be a dad for the first time. Just before the pregnancy was announced, he said that he was "working on" having a family with Simpson. "I would like [having kids]," he said. "As many as possible!" It seems like the new dad is well on his way. Congratulations to the Simpson and Ross families!

It has without a doubt been the most profoundly beautiful time in my life but also emotionally, spiritually, and physically challenging too…and I am so grateful for every second of it.

This second baby, who is godson to Taylor Swift, is truly something to celebrate.
Spoiler alert, Game of Thrones fans: Remember Cersei Lannister's epic "walk of shame" in the season 5 finale? (You may also recall that her body double famously came out recently to talk about shooting the hard-to-forget scene.) Well, it turns out actress Lena Headey was busy working on something else those 9 months ago, when the last episode was shot: making a baby. Yes, the woman behind the notorious queen of Casterly Rock has just had a girl, who will be little sister to Headey's 5-year-old son Wylie. "Just fallen in unconditional heartbreaking divine love for the second time," the 41-year-old actress tweeted last week. She revealed the sex of her baby in May when she penned a guest post for Plan International USA fighting for women's rights around the world. "My daughter will have freedom of choice," she wrote. "She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman."
Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley have welcomed a new baby on July 1—a daughter.

"We are beyond overjoyed and blessed with our beautiful baby girl," The Real co-host told People.

When she finally spilled the beans, Ellen DeGeneres asked her about her birth plan, and she admitted she didn't have one: "It will come out. That's the plan. I don't need a birth plan, that is it."

And it's empowering. You discover: Oh, I can do this."
