There are few things sweeter than baby’s first Christmas! From Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son Psalm to Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson’s daughter Birdie, Hollywood’s newest brood of babies enjoyed their inaugural Yuletide this year. Spoiler alert? The photos of these festive tots could make any holiday grinch’s heart grow ten times as big.
This end-of-year holiday is inherently magical, but having a little one around really amps up the whimsy. Have you ever watched a baby stare at twinkle lights? Grapple with wrapping paper? Sure, they may be too young to remember this very first holiday. Their parents never will, though — and they’ll undoubtedly immortalize the event in a way that their kids can cherish once they’re all grown up, too. Can you imagine the look on little Charlie Wolf’s face when he has kids of his own and mom Lauren Conrad pulls out the photo of him dressed festively for his own first Christmas?
Adorably, this year was filled with cute new arrivals in Hollywood, which means this Christmas has been filled with a ton of precious photos to pore over. Here are a few of our favorites from the bunch.
Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe
Bachelor alums Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe’s daughter Mia was born just in time for Christmas! That meant the family spent the holiday at the hospital, but they sure didn’t seem to mind.
Lauren Conrad and William Tell
Lauren Conrad and William Tell’s son Charlie Wolf, who was born in October, devoted Christmas Eve to being an extremely cute napper.
Phillip Phillips and Hannah Blackwell
The American Idol winner and wife Hannah Blackwell’s newborn son posed for an obligatory “first time in front of the tree” Christmas photo.
Shawn Johnson and Andrew East
Olympian Shawn Johnson’s adorable daughter Drew decided to kick off the holiday festivities at 5 a.m. In her defense, that’s pretty much par for the course with kids on Christmas, so she’s actually doing her parents a favor by preparing them now.
Shay Mitchell and Matte Babel
Pretty Little Liars‘ Shay Mitchell and boyfriend Matte Babel’s daughter Atlas pretty much stole the show this Christmas by snoozing through her parents’ official holiday photo.
Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt
Born in October, Nick Carter’s baby girl joined her dad, mom Lauren Kitt, and big brother Odin for a traditional Christmas PJs holiday pic.
Eva Marcille and Michael Sterling
Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Eva Marcille gathered her brood for a family photo on the front steps of her home with husband Michael Sterling. And while youngest son Maverick was only just born in September, he held his own alongside big siblings Michael Todd Jr. and Marley 5 (and seriously, how cute are all of these kids?!).
Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell
Italia Ricci and Arrow husband Robbie Amell’s son Robert Amell V apparently spent Christmas “still looking for that hairline” he asked Santa for. Don’t worry — that hair will fill in soon, little buddy.
Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson
Little Maverick, the newest addition to Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson’s family, had his first meeting with Santa. Judging by this precious photo, it was a success.
Christina and Ant Anstead
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson
It was a family affair for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson’s baby Birdie on her first Christmas! The 9-month-old got dressed in her holiday best to pose in front of an impressive tree with Mom, Dad, big sis Maxwell and big bro Ace.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Leave it to the Kardashian-Wests to make Christmas Eve look like a high-fashion photoshoot. The entire family was styled fierce for the annual Kardashian-Jenner holiday party, including precious newcomer Psalm West.
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert
Former reality stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert clearly enjoyed having another little elf, er, kid around for Christmas this year.
