They're in the Club! 2014's Newest Celebrity Parents
An event to write a (fictional) country song about! "We are over the moon and madly in love!" the Nashville actress shared with PEOPLE about the Dec. 9 birth of her daughter, Kaya Evdokia, with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.
Mum's still the word for this first-time mom and her husband Marco Perego, who had twin sons in December. While Saldana didn't confirm news of the boys' birth, several of her friends – including designer Prabal Gurung and actress Garcelle Beauvais – did the talking for her on social media by sending out their well-wishes.
Not only has the director been "moved" by parenthood since welcoming son Aman with girlfriend Gelila Bekele on Nov. 30, he's hit that one major parenting milestone, too. "I've been christened," he joked in December. "He's peed on me, but it's all good."
The former The Good Wife actor and his ballerina wife became newbie parents on Dec. 9 with the birth of their son. "Swore I'd never be the kind of parent who continually checks their sleeping baby to make sure they're still breathing, but apparently I am," he shared sweetly on Twitter.
Hammer and his wife Elizabeth Chambers welcomed daughter Harper into their lives on Dec. 1, naming her for something close to their hearts: the street Mom lived on when she met Dad.
She called it. "I'm totally gonna have a girl. I'm manifesting it!" the singer said prior to the June 12 birth of daughter River Rose, her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock (her clue? crazy morning sickness). These days, Clarkson describes her tiny human as "the greatest thing on the planet."
MILA KUNIS & ASHTON KUTCHER
From That '70s Show to the parent trap! The former costars were in a bind when it came to choosing a name for daughter Wyatt Isabelle, born Oct. 1. "I had to get the creative juices going, so we were going to a Lakers game, and I just started listing off anything and everything I saw: 'sign, truck, wall, door ... ' She [was] like, 'Shut up!' Then I was like, 'I've got a really dumb idea. What about Wyatt?' She goes, 'That's it,'" Kutcher explained.
EMILY BLUNT & JOHN KRASINSKI
It's handled. The Scandal star added mom to her résumé on April 21 with the birth of daughter Isabelle Amarachi, her one and only with her husband, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. We'll count on Isabelle inheriting Olivia Pope's wardrobe.
Another Rose is in bloom. The actress and her husband, French journalist Romain Dauriac, welcomed Rose Dorothy in September. The name has extra meaning for the star, who revealed the baby's middle name pays homage to her grandmother, whom she called "the first Francophone in my family."
Hopefully the new year will bring a deep sleep for the musician and wife Danielle, who welcomed daughter Alena Rose on Feb. 2. "What surprised me the most about having a baby was how long you can go without actually getting good rest!" Jonas told PEOPLE. The trick? The family of three times their bonding with baby's naps. "Right when she wakes up, she's in a really good mood," he says. "She's very active and expressive. She takes a lot after me!"
EVA MENDES & RYAN GOSLING
Much like the top-secret pregnancy, Mendes and Gosling managed to keep the arrival of their daughter, Esmeralda Amada, a secret for four days before it was confirmed on Sept. 16. "I thought my wild nights were over, but these are some of the wildest nights I've ever had," the new mom told The Violet Files.
All hail the chief … baby Charlotte, that is. After announcing that 2014 would be the year of the baby, the former First Daughter and husband Marc Mezvinsky welcomed their first child on Sept. 26. And it sounds like baby's future is bright. "I certainly feel all the better whether it's a girl or a boy that she or he will grow up in world filled with so many strong female leaders," Clinton said while announcing her pregnancy at a Clinton Foundation event.
OLIVIA WILDE & JASON SUDEIKIS
With a touch of humor, the world learned that Wilde and fiancé Sudeikis's son had arrived. "Ladies and gentlemen, Otis Alexander Sudeikis has LEFT the building! (I'm the building)," the actress joked on Twitter following the April 20 birth of their babe.
RACHEL BILSON & HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
The former costars and longtime loves welcomed their little flower, Briar Rose, on Oct. 29. Hopefully this means the new mama is now taken seriously. "I've always looked young because I'm so short, and especially if I'm dressed down," Bilson told Health earlier in the year. "When I have a baby, everyone's going to be like, 'Awww, poor teen mom. Poor girl.'"
For those who didn't think the harsh X Factor judge had a soft side, get ready to "awww." "I never knew how much love and pride I would feel," Cowell posted upon welcoming Eric Philip, born Feb. 14. Calling his baby with girlfriend Lauren Silverman "healthy and handsome," the proud papa posed for a family portrait with his son (named after Cowell's father) at the two-day-old mark. We just hope Eric's cries aren't too pitchy.
Baby is the new black for these funny people, who welcomed son Sid on Feb. 15. Of course, even delivery was a chance for the Orange Is the New Black actor and wife Jenny Mollen to make a few wisecracks. "Full head of hair, huge penis, 10k twitter followers," Mollen jokingly captioned baby's first photo. "Mom is doing great and a fan of dilaudid (pain reliever)."
Destiny's Child puns aside, the singer and husband Tim Weatherspoon welcomed their son Titan Jewell on Nov. 4. While Rowland is already writing lullabies, close pal Beyoncé shared the first pic of Titan's little hand. "There's no better feeling than holding my beautiful nephew," the honorary aunt wrote.
GINNIFER GOODWIN & JOSH DALLAS
It's happily ever after for the Once Upon a Time costars. "We are in LOVE! He's our favorite person," Dallas Tweeted about baby boy Oliver Finlay, born May 29. The new parents, who wed in April, put a lot of time into deciding what to call their son. "Naming a child with the last name of 'Dallas,' is a little more complicated," Goodwin said.
Pregnancy was a breeze for the actress and television host, who said she "had so much energy" before the birth of daughter Ava Grace on Aug. 20. Also a snap: Choosing a baby name with husband Jared Pobre. "We just talked about one name and that was it – easy peasy," she told PEOPLE.
After meeting as costars on How to Make It in America and marrying in 2013, the Million Dollar Arm actress and husband Scott Campbell welcomed a daughter in October. And Bell is falling right into her role of new mom. "All the cliche stuff is true. #parenting," she Tweeted.
Named after his rapper/producer dad's stage name, Future Zahir Wilburn came onto the scene May 19. And this Future's future involves lots of passport stamps, as he's already been spotted on his musical mom's Instagram globetrotting in Paris, Madrid and Ibiza.
JENNI 'JWOWW' FARLEY
It's gym, tan, baby laundry for the Jersey Shore star and her fiancé Roger Matthews, who welcomed daughter and "newest guidette" Meilani Alexandra on July 13. Snooki & JWoww fans will likely be on the lookout for baby fist pumps, as Meilani pals around with costar Nicole Polizzi's new baby, Giovanna. "They're basically cousins. There's no option. You're sisters," Farley joked to PEOPLE of the next-generation friendship.
