While everyone was anticipating an oversized cohort of newborns to arrive after quarantine, the math definitely implies our favorite celebrities were getting busy way before that!

(Honorable mention to the following new parents that don’t have an Instagram presence: Kristen Wiig, Boris Johnson, Donald Glover, and Michelle Williams.)

With the surplus of talent, beauty and brains in this group of moms and dads, we can’t wait to see who these little ones grow up to be!

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden

The actress and rockstar made the first celebrity birth announcement of the new year with the arrival of their first daughter, Raddix Madden, after five years of marriage. Although announced publicly on January 3rd, the notoriously tight-lipped couple has not shared Raddix’s actual date of birth.

Anderson Cooper

The journalist and primetime news anchor surprised viewers when he announced during his April 30th broadcast that he had recently become a single father to son, Wyatt, via surrogacy. Anderson got candid with his viewers as he explained how the recent loss of his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, caused him to long for a family of his own and how welcoming Wyatt restored his sense of family.

America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams

The actress and film director who have been coupled for 15 years welcomed their second child, Lucia Marisol Williams, on May 4th. The couple announced their daughter’s arrival via Ryan’s Instagram on Mother’s Day, using the post as an opportunity to raise money for organizations assisting mothers and children seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Elon Musk and Grimes

The billionaire engineer and eccentric musician sent the internet into a frenzy when announcing the birth of their first child, X Æ A-12, born on May 4th. Pronounced “X Ash Archangel” (obviously), the couple was later forced to change their son’s name to X AE A-XII to adhere to a California law permitting only the 26 characters of the alphabet and basic punctuation to be used on state birth certificates.

Alex Morgan and Servando Carrasco

The U.S. Womens’ National Team soccer sensation and her pro-athlete husband welcomed the couple’s first daughter, Charlie Elena Carrasco, on May 7th. Charlie is the first daughter to both parents who have been together for 13 years.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita

The actor that portrayed one of America’s favorite uncles for over a decade started a “Modern Family” of his own this year with his husband of seven years and human rights lawyer, Justin Mikita. The July 7th arrival of their son, Beckett, is the first child for both men who regularly take to Instagram to share the excitement of first-time parenting with their fans.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas

Perhaps the most highly anticipated celebrity arrival of 2020 was Willa, the first daughter born to this megastar couple.

Russell Wilson and Ciara

The power couple appeared over-the-moon when they took to Instagram to share the news of their son, Win, shortly after his July 23rd arrival.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

This iconic Hollywood couple shocked fans when rumors of a second baby leaked to the press this summer.

The couple are already parents to five-year old son, Silas.

The world renowned professional golfer and his wife welcomed their daughter, Poppy Kennedy McIlroy, into their family on August 31st. Poppy is the first-child for both parents who were married in April 2017.

Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn

The Grammy-award winning musician shocked fans when he took to Instagram to announce the birth of the couple’s first daughter, Lyra, in early September. Notoriously private, Ed asked fans to respect the new family’s privacy and has yet to publicly share Lyra’s birth date or any photos. The global music sensation and his childhood friend secretly married in 2019, only announcing the news of their nuptials within the lyrics of his most recent album.

Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin

Following a series of devastating miscarriages, the iconic actor and his wife welcomed son, Eduardo Pau Lucuas Baldwin, into the world on September 8th. The couple of eight years are no strangers to parenthood with Eduardo joining their family as the couple’s fifth child and Alec’s sixth, who has an adult daughter with actress and ex-wife, Kim Bassinger.

Mindy Kaling

The fan-favorite actress surprised everyone during an appearance on The Late Show when she casually announced that she had given birth to her second child, a son named Spencer, in September.

Usher and Jenn Goicoechea

The R&B superstar and record executive welcomed the couple’s first daughter, Sovereign Bo Raymond, on September 24th. Sovereign is the first child for both the couple and first-time mom and officially makes the musician a “girl dad,” who has two sons with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster.
