It’s less than 2 weeks into the new year and already 2015 social media is filled with news of baby arrivals and pregnancy announcements from Royal Families to the Hollywood Hills, here’s our celebrity baby rundown.
Just before Christmas Princess Charlene of Monaco gave birth to twins a boy and a girl Jacques and Gabriella. At the start of January 2015 a photograph of the family of four was finally released to officially announce the birth of the twins. Jacques will be the future Prince of Monaco, because of the Mediterranean principality’s male inheritance laws.
Another set of boy/girl twins were born, this time in the UK. Holly Branson the daughter of Richard Branson and her husband Fred Andrews welcomed son and daughter Artie and Etta. Hollys brother Sam Branson will also become a father in 2015.
Across the pond in the USA, actress Zoe Saldana took to her Instagram account, three weeks after giving birth, to reveal the names she and her husband Marco Perego have given their twin boys – Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio Perego.
On the 27th Dec Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz – welcomed their second child, Genesis Ali Dean, into the world. She took to Instagram writing: “The joy of joy is joy!! It’s a boy!! we are so grateful!! #blessings!!” That’s 2 boys for Alicia!
I feel like the shortest pregnancy in history was that of Gossip girl actress Blake lively and Ryan Reynolds. Last week social media went it to over drive as she gave birth early to a daughter. They haven’t made an official announcement yet but we know they have named her Violet.
Ok it wasn’t in 2015 but we couldn’t miss Kourtney Kardashian of the list. She gave birth to the latest member of her family on 14 December 2014 and there had been much speculation surrounding the name of her baby boy ever since. Finally Kourtney, has ended the rumours by confirming the baby’s name on Instagram. She wrote alongside a cute pic: “Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick.”
Is she, isn’t she? Speculation over Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake expecting their first child has been rife with no official comment from the couple. However now on social media it’s clear that Jessica is pregnant as she has a baby belly. Either that or she has swallowed a beach ball!
Model and actress Molly Sims is pregnant with her 2nd child which she announced on Instagram. Posing with her son holding up 2 black boards with his age being 2 years and another board saying 4 months.
British actress Keira Knightly made her first public appearance this week since announcing that is also expecting her first child with musician husband James Righton.
Liv Tyler also took to Instagram to share a rather uncharacteristic photo of her blossoming baby belly looking the picture of contentment ahead of her 2nd pregnancy. The first with boyfriend Dave Gardner.
On the 7th January Jennifer love Hewitt revealed that she is expecting a second child mid 2015, she already has a daughter, Autumn who was born in Nov 2013.
And the award for the most anticipated pregnancy of 2015 goes to the Royals, William and Kate. Due in April we cant control our excitement to know if baby number 2 will be a Prince or Princess, second inline to the thrown after Prince George.
The most memorable social media birth announcement goes to British singer Robbie Williams who posted on You Tube and Instagram footage of his wife, Ayda Field throughout her labor and birth all while singing his songs to her on camera. The couple named their second child, a boy, Charlton Valentine – he’s surly going to be a heart breaker.
