A lot of stars must have been getting busy in 2013 — because 2014 was the year of celebrity babies! With the year coming to an end, we’ve rounded up 20 of the biggest celebrity births of the last 12 months. Check out which stars got caught in the baby boom:
Jersey Shore couple JWoww and Roger Mathews, who got engaged in 2012 welcomed their first daughter, Meilani, in July…and the happy couple haven’t been able to stop gushing about her on social media ever since!
Far removed from her MTV days…Kristin is a complete family woman in the present! The Laguna Beach star and her husband, Jay Cutler, now have two sons — Camden, born in August 2012, and Jaxon, born in May.
18. Chris Hemsworth
Babies make five! To join daughter India, Chris’ wife, Elsa Pataky, gave birth to twins, Tristan and Sasha, in April. “They are already home!! Tristan and Sasha arrived in this world on March 18 just after the full moon. Complete happiness!!” Elsa wrote after the babies were born.
Hey Hazel! Emily and John proudly announced the birth of their first daughter on Twitter Feb. 16 with an adorable photo — and it seems the newborn certainly isn’t camera shy. “She’s just stinkin’ cute!” Emily gushed in May. “She’s so cute. She came out, like, ready for a photo shoot. She was just perfect.”
It was a big year for Snooki, who finally married Jionni LaValle at the end of November. But first, the pint-sized reality star became a mom for the second time, when she gave birth to daughter, Giovanna, in September. “So happy to let you know we had our beautiful daughter this morning Giovanna Marie LaValle,” she tweeted at the time. “6.7 lbs, full head of black hair & perfect.”
15. Gwen Stefani
At 44-years-old, Gwen welcomed her “miracle baby,” Apollo, with husband Gavin Rossdale in February. The little guy joins the couple’s two sons, 8-year-old Kingston and 6-year-old Zuma.
14. Kendra Wilkinson
While most of Kendra’s 2014 has been plagued by husband Hank Baskett’s alleged affair with a transsexual, there were some happy times to be had! Before finding out about Hank’s indiscretions, the Kendra on Top star gave birth to the couple’s second child, daughter Alijah, in May. Kendra has since been trying to work things out with Hank, and as of now, they’re still together.
13. Drew Barrymore
2014 brought baby No. 2 for Drew, who added daughter, Frankie, to her growing family with Will Kopelman in May. “I feel so good and happy,” she told Ellen DeGeneres just weeks after giving birth. “My kid is healthy! I have nothing to complain about. I’m blessed.”
12. Megan Fox
Megan and her husband, Brian Austin Green, gave their son, Noah, a little brother this year! Bodhi Ransom Green was born in February.
They’re in no rush to walk down the aisle…but Olivia and Jason had no qualms about expanding their family this year! The couple welcomed their son, Otis, in April, and just a few months later, the actress shot a very personal photo shoot of herself breastfeeding. “Being shot with Otis is perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that,” she gushed at the time.
10. Kerry Washington
Notoriously private, Kerry has yet to say much about her daughter Isabelle, born in April, but she has made it clear that she and husband Nnamdi Asomugha are thrilled about their addition. “I feel really, really blessed,” she gushed. “I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living an extraordinary dream come true in my work life and in my personal life.”
9. Zoe Saldana
After hitting the streets and red carpet with a huge baby bump for what seemed like forever, Zoe and her husband, Marco Perego, finally welcomed their twins just earlier this month! While it’s been reported that the actress had two boys, the couple has yet to comment on the birth.
With 2013 ending on a high note (Kelly finally tied the knot and found out she was pregnant), the singer kept a low key 2014, finally giving birth to her daughter, River, in June. Since then, she’s mostly stayed behind closed doors, until some recent appearances that had the public shocked by her puffy new look.
Scarlett’s rep confirmed that the actress gave birth to a daughter, Rose, in early September. Just weeks later, she secretly married fiancee Romain Dauriac, although the pair have continued to remain private regarding their personal lives.
Christina spent 2014 recording an album…while carrying her second child! The singer had daughter, Summer Rain, in August, her first child with fiancee Matt Rutler (she’s already mom to 6-year-old Max from her previous marriage to Jordan Bratman).
It’s baby No. 3 for Kourtney and longtime partner Scott Disick! The couple added to the always-growing Kardashian clan when they welcomed their second son on December 14 — the same day their first born, Mason, turned five!
At just 25-years-old, Hayden is an engaged mother of one! The Nashville star and Wladimir Klitschko welcomed daughter Kaya on December 9, but have yet to give further details about their newborn.
Since giving birth at the end of October, Rachel has also remained under the radar. The Hart of Dixie star and longtime boyfriend Hayden, who’ve dated on-and-off for years, and were even briefly engaged, welcomed a daughter, Briar Rose, on October 29.
Unlike most celebrity couples, Mila and Ashton are making it a point to raise their daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, born in September, completely on their own! With no nanny, the actress has mostly been behind closed doors for the last several months while her fiancee works on Two and a Half Men — and the sitcom star just can’t help but gush over how great his lady is doing. “She’s the greatest mom,” he told Ellen DeGeneres. “I can’t even…I go to work everyday and I come home and she’s, like, perfect.”
Another notoriously private pair, Ryan and Eva quietly welcomed their daughter, Esmeralda, on Sept. 12. Just three months later, the actress made her first post-baby appearance, and gushed, “I’m exhausted — it’s the best! I’m so incredibly tired. I thought I was tired before at times, but no, nothing like this. But I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
