The baby boom is still thriving in the UK and Hollywood with a huge number of celebrities having babies this year!
Although we’ve seen a number of tots born to their high profile parents, the most notable has to be Prince George who was born weighing 8lbs 6oz to Kate Middleton and Prince William on 22nd July.
While the UK was celebrating its new Royal, across the pond in Hollywood, notoriously private couple Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem were also rejoicing after welcoming their little girl Luna.
And it’s been a bumper year for Hollywood starlets when it comes to baby news. On 7 October actress Halle Berry became a mum for the second time to Maceo Robert Martinez, while Everly Tatum was introduced into the world on 31 May 2013. With her parents being Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum we can imagine this little girl will be nothing but gorgeous!
When it comes to pop royalty there was also more great news. On 27 August Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato introduced Noah to the world, while Fergie and Josh Duhamel also gave the baby grapevine something to buzz about when they announced the birth of Axl Jack on 29 August 2013. Milan Piqué Mebarak was also born to Shakira and Gerard Pique on 22 January.
For UK pop band The Saturdays, there was not one, but two pieces of baby news. On 20th May Marvin Humes and Rochele Wiseman announced the birth for their daughter Alaia-Mai, while on 18th October fellow Saturday Frankie Sandford confirmed she had given birth to baby boy Parker with footballer Wayne Bridge. However, Wayne wasn’t the only footballer of the year to have a little one with Wayne Rooney also becoming a dad to second son Klay Anthony on 20th May with his wife Coleen Rooney.
Pop and reality came together when Kanye West and Kim Kardashian announced the birth of their daughter North on 15 June. And keeping on the reality theme, over in the UK, Strictly Come Dancing Star Ashley Taylor Dawson was ecstatic as he broke the news of the arrival of his new baby boy.
It was also a BGT baby bonanza this year with judge David Walliams and his model wife Lara Stone announcing the birth of their son on the 5th of May, while David’s fellow BGT judge Alesha Dixon, announced the birth of her little girl Azura Sienna, with her dancer boyfriend, Azuka Onomye, in October.
And finally… we can’t forget baby Rex Rayne Wood who was born on the 21st February to super cool couple Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood.
Congrats to everyone. We can’t wait to meet the rest of the celebrity babies who are due this year!
