On Dec. 10, Sean "Diddy" Combs tweeted that his family had grown one baby girl bigger with the arrival of his daughter Love Sean Combs. Though he did not reveal the identity of Love's mother, the hip-hop mogul named the many people who already adored the newborn baby, writing, "Mama Combs, Quincy, Justin, Christian, Chance, D'Lila, Jessie and myself all love you so much! God is the Greatest!"

Love is the sixth child to call Diddy "Dad." He also is father to twins D'Lila Star and Jessie James, 15, Chase Combs, 16, King, 24, Justin Dior, 28, and Quincy Taylor Brown, 31, whom he adopted while in a relationship with the child's late mother and his ex, Kim Porter, who died of pneumonia in 2018 at age 47.

In 2021, Diddy spoke about how the pandemic affected his relationship with his children. "For me, my life got better because I was running myself into the ground and I wasn't taking enough time for my family and for myself. It's really been a blessing," he told Clive Davis during a virtually held pre-Grammy Gala. "I lost the mother of my children and the time that [my kids and I] were sequestered together, it helped me to make up for all those years I was on tour and to get closer to my family."

Kate Mara and Jamie Bell kept it simple when sharing a major life update: their second child together, a son, arrived in November. "Had a baby a week ago," The Martian actress wrote on an Instagram photo of her baby's tiny toes peeking out from animal pattern pajamas. "Here are his feet 🧡."

It just dragged out forever," she said.

He shared his thanks to their fertility team, surrogate, hospital doctors who helped bring his new son into the world, adding, "We are overjoyed to be a family of four."

As baby Sullivan heads home with his dads–who have been married since 2013– he joins their first born, Beckett Mercer, who was born in July 2020.

Baby no. 2 makes Luke Cook's brood a family of four! He and his wife, Kara, welcomed their son Ozzie Alexander with an at-home birth on Nov. 15. According to the Dollface actor's Instagram post, the newborn's birth came "after a long, deeply groaned labor by my strong, resilient wife @karacookstyle."

The couple announced that their first born, Chaplin Benjamin, 2, would soon have a brother in August 2022. Cook shared a series of hilarious maternity photos– the first slide showed his wife and her bump, while Kara's mom and Cook himself posed the same way in the following shots.

In September, before she became an official mom of two, Kara reflected on her experience being pregnant, sharing that "it feels like magic."

"My body has grown an entire new being from two cells and That process alone makes me feel otherworldly," the stylist wrote on Instagram. "It's almost like I'm not completely tethered to this universe but instead have One foot in the realm of the living and the other in another dimension."

Romee Strijd's baby no. 2 is here, and she's a girl! The Dutch model and her fiancé, Laurens van Leeuwen, are officially double girl-parents as of Nov. 11, when baby June arrived. Strijd uploaded a carousel of celebratory baby photos on Instagram, including pictures of June's older sister Mint, 12 months, welcoming her home.

Strijd shared the news of her second pregnancy back in May, when she posted an Instagram of herself, her fiancé–to whom she got engaged in January, after 12 years of dating– and their eldest daughter. "Soon we will be a family of 4, can't wait 🥹🤍," wrote the Victoria's Secret Angel.

The mother of two has been open about her experience with polycystic ovary syndrome, with which she was diagnosed "after not getting [her] period for 7 years," as she shared in the caption of her first pregnancy announcement in May 2020. Strijd explained that she was "devastated" upon learning about her diagnosis, which would make it difficult to get pregnant, since "being a mom and starting a family with @laurensvleeuwen is [her] biggest dream." Eventually, however, her period returned and she was able to shine a beacon of hope for others struggling with fertility.

"[To] the women trying to conceive, believe in yourself and be nice for yourself and your body and don't let those thoughts get to you to [sic] much," she said at the end of her post.

Ali Stroker is a mom! The Glee alum and her husband, David Perlow, welcomed a son on Nov. 8, and shared the good news a month later, to celebrate Jesse Kenneth's first milestone birthday. Stroker shared several glimpses into the first month of her son's life, including a selfie of their trio and a solo shot of the infant wearing a blue and white onesie dotted with stars.

"World meet Jesse Kenneth Perlow! Born 11/8 healthy and so happy to be here!" she captioned the post. "Life will never be the same. We are so lucky that you are our boy! 💙💙💙💙."

The Tony Award winner shared her and Perlow's expecting news in July when she posted a sonogram photo stitched together with a couple's selfie. The new parents first met in college but only started dating long term after they reconnected in 2015, during the Deaf West Theatre revival of Spring Awakening.

"As a lit­tle girl I think I was al­ways afraid of not find­ing some­one who would choose this," Stroker told PEOPLE in 2019, speaking about her use of a wheelchair due to a spinal cord injury she sustained in a car accident at age 2. The musical star explained Perlow is her "dream" partner, "who wants to be by my side and is so proud of me," she said.

Rebel Wilson became a mom this year when she welcomed her very first baby via surrogate. The Pitch Perfect alum announced the arrival of her daughter, Royce Lillian Elizabeth, on Instagram. I can't even describe the love I have for her, she's a beautiful miracle!" Wilson captioned a photo of her newborn in a light pink zip-up onesie and unicorn socks.

The actress made sure to give special thanks to her surrogate, "who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care." She added, "Thank you for helping me start my own family, it's an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!"

Royce Lillian came along after a period of change and new beginnings for Wilson, who went public with her romantic ties to fashion and designer Ramona Agruma and embarked on a "year of health" in 2020. Her decision to lose weight initially came from fertility efforts–her doctor told her that she'd have a better chance of harvesting and freezing her eggs if she got healthier.

"He was right," she told PEOPLE, noting that she was initially surprised and upset by the medical advice before she realized the truth. "I was carrying around a lot of excess weight. It's almost like I didn't think of my own needs. I thought of a future child's needs that really inspired me to get healthier."

She also shared her love for Fenison, and thanked him "for giving me the greatest gift in the world and being such an amazing dad already."

Zoe Kazan is a (working) mom of two! The actress confirmed that she'd had her second baby while appearing on Today in early November with her She Said costar Carey Mulligan.

"Everyone talks about work-life balance, but it's also really hard to balance your priorities," Kazan shared in an interview with the magazine. "I wanted to be the person who took my daughter to her first day of preschool, and I couldn't do that because I felt like this job, this work was as important as that. And vice versa."

The Greatest Showman star also shared her thoughts on having a baby during the pandemic, which she's just done for the second time– she and Kail welcomed their son Hart in the summer of 2020. "The world we brought a baby into is not the world we thought we were bringing a baby into, but the baby is ignorant of that," she told Variety in the spring. "He experiences the unmitigated joy of discovery and the happiness of a loving home."

The actress is also mom to her daughter Matilda, 17, with the late actor Heath Ledger, who died in January 2008.

Perri captioned a photo of her holding baby Pixie Rose. "With a whole lot of faith, trust and pixie dust she has arrived safely."

Perri's tattoos are visible in the black-and-white Instagram post, including the one that reads "Rosie" across her chest, which is the name of her daughter who was "born silent" in November 2020. The couple, who are parents to 4-year-old Carmella Stanley, also suffered a miscarriage in January 2020.

Perri announced the news of her pregnancy earlier this year in May 2022, and she spoke optimistically in conversation with PEOPLE in July. "Paul and I are choosing to believe everything is going to be OK," she said. "And after what I've been through, I will dedicate my life to helping other women. I truly believe that is Rosie's purpose."

Months after Rosie's death, "Jar of Hearts" singer learned that she had a treatable blood disease that may have led to her loss of two pregnancies.

Chris and Lauren Bushnell Lane welcomed their second baby boy, Baker Weston, on Oct. 16 in Nashville. "Life just got 8 Pounds Sweeter! Family of 4 Now!!" wrote the country singer dad on Instagram, sharing a photo of all four Lane family members. A second slide shows a video of their son Dutton Walker, 18 months, meeting his new baby brother.

"That's your brother!" Lane says to Dutton–who wore a "big bro" tee–in the clip, and his Bachelor alum wife shows her eldest her swaddled newborn. "Look at your brother," Lane says to Dutton as he lifts him onto the bed to cuddle with his mom.

Baby Baker entered the world via c-section when he failed to turn during the final weeks of Bushnell Lane's pregnancy, which wasn't even the first time their new addition surprised his parents. In June, the couple announced their pregnancy news exclusively to PEOPLE, and Bushnell Lane revealed that it was completely unexpected.

"To be quite honest, I've never been more shocked in my entire life," she said, adding that she had interrupted her husband while he was putting Dutton down for a nap to show him the positive pregnancy test. Still, even though Baker came along on his own timing, the duo– who got married in October 2019–planned to have two kids anyway and were both "very thankful that it was able to happen."

Rafael Nadal and his wife Mery 'Xisca' Perello welcomed their very first child in Mallorca, where they live together. The AP and Spanish media reported that the couple became parents to a baby boy on Oct. 8, although representatives for the tennis pro declined to comment on his private affairs at the time. The baby was named after his tennis pro dad, according to Spanish news outlets.

Though Nadal typically keeps his personal life separate from his professional spheres, he has at times spoken about expanding his family, including when he announced his wife's pregnancy at a press conference in June. "If all goes well, I'm going to be a father," the Spanish champion said, adding that he wasn't sure how it would change his life but didn't think it would affect his professional career.

He also shared a rare glimpse into his hopes to become a dad in 2017, when he told The Sun, "I would love to have children: boys, girls… I'm a person who loves kids and I'm a family guy. But also I tell you that the reality is, the years keep passing, I would like to start to do all of this when my sporting life determines it," he said. "I think it's also above all about looking after the kids. I don't know if it [traveling] throughout the year and having children] is ideal."

Emily Maynard Johnson welcomed another baby on Aug. 31, though the mom of six didn't immediately share details about her family's newest member, son Jones West, for a few months. In November, Maynard Johnson spoke to PEOPLE exclusively about Jones' arrival.

The former Bachelorette, her husband, Tyler Johnson, and their five other kids– Ricki, 17, Jennings, 7, Gibson, 6, Gatlin, 5 and Nola Belle, 2– were surprised to learn that baby Jones was born with Down syndrome and a congenital colon abnormality. The latter, they found out, required surgery and a monthlong stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Since Maynard Johnson opted not to undergo genetic testing during her pregnancy, her son's Down syndrome diagnosis came as a major shock. The fact that Jones wouldn't be coming home for another month was "devastating," according to his mom. "I was just grieving all of it and that the experience was so different from what I had expected," she said.

Luckily Maynard Johnson was able to lean on her family for support– her eldest, Ricki, shone as a particularly bright source of light. The super-mom told PEOPLE that the 17-year-old sent 47 roses to the hospital, which represented Jones' 47 chromosomes. (People with Down syndrome are born with an extra copy of the 21st chromosome).

Once she could finally bring her son home, Maynard Johnson was able to relish time with her "sweet and smiley" son, whom she called "the easiest baby" and "our biggest blessing" when speaking to PEOPLE.

"My conversations and life experiences have already changed," she continued in the caption. "And my world has gotten that much bigger thanks to our sweet little baby, who has shown me how to love in ways I never knew."

The black-and-white photo shows the couple cradling their newborn with loving gazes. Bailon's heartwarming caption begins by quoting a few verses: "For this child we have prayed / Just to hear our baby cry / Skin to skin and face to face / Heart to heart and eye to eye…" The Cheetah Girls alum then continues to express her gratitude for Ever James' arrival, detailing her "very challenging" journey to motherhood.

"He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage. Everything," reads the new mom's caption. "Grateful to God, to our angel surrogate and to all of our friends and family who have stood with us for over 5 years on this journey. He's here and we have never been happier to lose sleep! #HappilyEverHoughton 🤍"

Bailon spoke openly about her struggles with infertility on The Real. In 2018, she emphasized the importance of treating pregnancy sensitively. She reminded her audience to remember that getting pregnant isn't as easy as it may seem.

"I think for myself I thought it would happen so easily for me and it just hasn't happened that way," she said, reflecting on her hopes to conceive. Bailon explained that while she "had to come to peace with that it'll happen when it's God's timing," the process could still be "really discouraging" and "really frustrating."
