Santa Claus Has Come to Town! See Which Celeb Kids Are Visiting the Big Guy This Season
Hilaria Baldwin, Mario Lopez, Catherine Giudici Lowe, Macklemore and other celebs are making sure their minis are on the nice list this year
"All my dreams have come true," Joanna Gaines wrote of her 6-month-old son's meeting with the man in red.
ALANA, MATEO, EVA MARIA AND CRISTIANO RONALDO
"What fun we had yesterday buying christmas decorations for our new house in Torino!" the model wrote, in Spanish. "We had the best time and we felt the greatest satisfaction knowing that we were contributing to a good cause. We're happy to be able to team up with ADISCO who will donate 100 percent of sales to Hospital Regina Margherita."
"What a beautiful time of family unity, warmth, affection, love," Rodriguez continued. "We should never forget those who really need it. Cristiano, there's no better satisfaction than this one."
DOMINIC AND GIA LOPEZ
JACK AND BEAU DYKSTRA
"Early bird gets ... nothing. Except now I have to use my santa FaceTime app more to secure better behavior before the big day," the actress joked in her photo's caption.
Macklemore's daughter Sloane Ava Simone went an unconventional route during her visit with Santa, who wore a Hawaiian shirt and lei as the 3½-year-old sat on his lap for a photo.
Both Sloane and the big guy threw up "surf's up" hand signs, while the little girl wore warm-weather attire: shorts, a T-shirt and sparkly sneakers.
The rapper captioned the tropical-inspired photo, "Happy Holidays my loved ones 🌊 🤙🏻"
ROMEO, LEONARDO, RAFAEL AND CARMEN BALDWIN
Gang's all here! Carmen Gabriela, 5, posed with her three little brothers — Romeo Alejandro David, 6 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 2, and Rafael Thomas, 3 — on a comfy-looking bench, where Santa held Romeo on his lap.
"Kicking off a very Baldwinito holiday season ❤️💚🎄," Hilaria Baldwin captioned the photo, taken at East Hampton Gardens in East Hampton, New York.
Second-time mom-to-be April Love Geary took her and boyfriend Robin Thicke's daughter Mia Love, 9 months, to meet Santa — and the little girl's reactions were a mixed bag.
"My baby's first time meeting Santa! 🎅🏽 The third picture is how she really felt about Santa 😅," Geary joked in the caption of a three-photo slideshow — the last of which showed Mia shedding a few tears.
GIOVANNA AND LORENZO LAVALLE
The big-sister-to-be, 4, and second-time big-brother-to-be, 6, couldn't stop grinning as they sat atop Santa's lap in a photo the Jersey Shore star shared to Instagram.
" 'Santa, can you bring bath bombs for the new baby?' 😩🙏🏽🎄," Polizzi captioned the cute snapshot.
NALA AND KODAH DYRDEK
"Holiday season is in full swing for the Dyrdek Family," Rob Dyrdek captioned a festive photo gallery of himself, wife Bryiana and their two kids — daughter Nala Ryan, 1 this month, and son Kodah Dash, 2 — decked out in red to match Kris Kringle, pick out their tree and more.
"Making memories one matching outfit at a time!" he joked in conclusion, adding a string of Christmas emojis.
Jason and Molly Mesnick's daughter Riley Anne, 5½, couldn't have looked more excited to tell Santa what she wants for Christmas.
"We had a fun little chat with Santa & Mrs. Claus today!! 🎅🏼🤶🏻❤️🎄," the proud mom wrote alongside the cute two-photo gallery of her daughter with the couple of the season.
LYRIC AND AVA MCLEAN
"So we finally saw Santa last night and lyric has been so excited to meet him and then this was as close as she wanted to get lol!" the Backstreet Boys member captioned the sweet pic. "Thankfully big sister held it down for her so maybe next year."
PHOENIX, BROOKLYN AND CAMDEN LACHEY
Big grins adorned the adorable faces of Nick and Vanessa Lachey's two older children — daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 4 next month, and son Camden John, 6 — while posing with Kris Kringle, but little brother Phoenix Robert (who turns 2 on Christmas Eve, of all days!) wasn't feeling the whole thing.
"Fa La La La La, La La La La! 🎅🏼🎄🎁" Vanessa wrote alongside the memorable snapshot.
WILLIAM "BILLY" STAMOS
John Stamos' 8-month-old son William "Billy" Christopher wasn't afraid to get up close and personal with Santa, going for his mustache in a sweet photo taken over his first Christmas season.
Subsequent snapshots in Stamos' post showed the father-son duo posing with Santa, Mrs. Claus and Stamos' wife Caitlin, as well as the Fuller House actor hanging at Walt Disney World with his baby boy.
"Already my favorite Christmas," Stamos wrote.
IVEY WATSON AND MADDIE ALDRIDGE
"I'm still not sure if he likes Santa or not ... a true skeptic at heart I think he was more curious of the man honking toys at him behind the camera. 😂," she wrote. "We only get these photos for our own amusement don't we?!"
LULU AND RYAN ROSENBERG WITH BANKS BAIR AND LUCA COMRIE
Cousin pile! Hilary Duff's daughter Banks Violet, 7 weeks, and son Luca Cruz, 6½, joined Haylie Duff's daughters Lulu Gray, 6 months, and Ryan Ava Erhard, 3½, to give Kris Kringle their wish lists in person.
"All the cousins got to meet Santa this morning! Such a special moment for our fam 😊" Haylie captioned her photo. "Two new baby girls this year ... and their first Santa visit ... with no tears! Ha!"
JAXON AND CAMDEN CUTLER
Matthew Morrison learned "a good parenting lesson" after his 14-month-old son Revel James Makai was "shaking in pure terror" after meeting Santa.
"Sometimes what YOU want is not what THEY want. And to laugh at my child's distress was so inconsiderate," the Glee alum captioned a photo of little Revel "doing the 'silent scream.' "
"I don't want to do anything to break the trust I've worked so hard to build," he continued. "I love being a parent and constantly learning!"
MAJOR AND MARLOWE MARTINO
"Soooooo apparently my kids were just waiting for a legit, jolly-looking, super adorable and totally REAL Santa to take a happy picture with. Can’t say I blame them!" Eva Amurri Martino praised the man in red alongside a snapshot and video set of him with her son Major James, 2, and Marlowe Mae, 4.
"And just to keep me on my toes, Marlowe added a few new items to her list while on Santa's lap ... and Major repeatedly asked for an 'excavator.' Which I truly feel he deserves just for difficulty level alone. (Video to prove it)," she joked, referring to the final slide in her post.
ISAIAH AND SAMUEL LOWE
"Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night," Michelle Branch wrote on her Instagram Story, sharing a snapshot of her 3-month-old mini-me son Rhys James' first encounter with Kris Kringle.
