While Mother’s Day is always a special time of year, from breakfast in bed to sweet homemade cards, there’s nothing sweeter than that first Mother’s Day. Check out which celebrities will celebrate Mother’s Day as moms for the first time below.

Paris Hilton

The hotel heiress originally shared the news that she had welcomed a baby in late January. Hilton posted a photo of her baby boy’s fingers wrapped around her own on Instagram with the simple caption, “You are already loved beyond words.”


The pop star, beauty and fashion mogul gave birth to baby boy RZA Athelston Mayers on May 13 in Los Angeles. Rihanna described her first son’s birth as “beautiful but also a surreal experience. “I cannot believe it,” she told British Vogue features director Giles Hattersley. “Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts.”

Kaley Cuoco

The Flight Attendant actress announced the birth of her first child on Instagram March 30. “Introducing, Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey, the new light of our lives! We are overjoyed and grateful for this little miracle,” Cuoco captioned the first photos of her little one.

Kelly Mi Li

The film producer and entrepreneur welcomed her daughter into the world at Cedars Sinai on Sunday, April 9, shortly after midnight. She weighed 7 lbs., 5 oz. at birth and has been given the name Mili Ma.

Gina Rodriguez

Jane the Virgin Star Gina Rodriguez welcomed her first child earlier this year in March. A representative for the actress and her husband, Joe Locicero, confirmed the news with Today on March 20.

Jhené Aiko

The R&B star welcomed a baby boy into the world with her longtime partner Big Sean on November 8. The “Sativa” singer detailed her long labor in a post announcing the birth with several photos of her having some sweet skin-to-skin time with her baby boy.

Heather Rae El Moussa

The Selling Sunset realtor welcomed her first son with Tarek El Moussa on January 31. “Our baby boy is here, 1.31.23,” he wrote on alongside a photo of his newborn wrapped in a blanket in Mom’s arms. “Mama & baby are happy, healthy, tired but doing well. Our hearts are so happy.”

Hilary Swank

The Million Dollar Baby actress shared that she had given birth to twins on April 9. “It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it,” the new mom wrote in the caption of her photo announcement.

Keke Palmer

The Emmy-award-winning actress announced the birth of her first child Leodis or “Leo” on February 27.

Adrienne Bailon

An outspoken advocate of surrogacy, the Cheetah Girls star welcomed her first son, Ever James, into the world on August 16. “He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage. Everything. All we feel is joy and overwhelming love & gratitude,” she wrote in a post announcing his birth.

Rebel Wilson

The Pitch Perfect actress shared the arrival of her new addition via surrogacy son on November 7. “Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate. I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!” Wilson captioned the post.

Kelly Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne revealed that her daughter Kelly and her boyfriend Sid Wilson had welcomed a baby boy during an appearance on Britain’s The Talk Tuesday on January 4. The TV host said the new parents are doing “so great” and that her daughter had chosen to name her son Sidney, a gender-neutral name meaning wide meadow.

Kealia Watt

The pro soccer player and her husband and Cardinal’s Defensive end JJ Watt officially welcomed their first baby together on October 23! The couple captioned the photo of Mom, Dad and baby boy Watt in the delivery room, “Love and happiness have reached heights we never even knew existed. Koa James Watt. 10.23.22.”


Jamie Anderson

Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson and her fiancée Tyler Nicholson revealed that they had brought home their first baby together on March 22. “Misty Rose Nicholson,” Anderson captioned the post revealing her daughter’s name. “Born through the most mystical storm we’ve ever experienced and the largest snowfall Tahoe has seen in 70 years…We are so in love and grateful for you, Misty,” she wrote.

Sophia Grace Brownlee

Sophia Grace Brownlee—known for her 2011 cover of Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass on The Ellen DeGeneres Show—welcomed her first child on February 26.
