As COVID-19 swept the globe and lockdowns followed, we started to notice a curious trend — more and more celebrity pregnancies popping up to celebrate. Maybe it’s just that pandemic-induced boredom made us more tuned in to these announcements, but we could swear there was something in the air last year that made our favorite stars want to grow their families. Or, maybe they just ran out of things to do at home like the rest of us. Either way, in 2021, all those pandemic babies will be saying aloha to the world, with Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate, Stassi Schroeder, and Princess Eugenie all welcoming new babies just a few months into the year.
Every star has their own way of introducing the news to the world. Eugenie welcomed the arrival of her and husband Jack Brooksbank’s son with a black-and-white photo showing his tiny baby hand wrapped around mom’s thumb; SChroeder had several pre- and post-birth photoshoots planned, and Rose Leslie and Kit Harington just allowed themselves to be spotted out on a casual stroll.
We’ll always be happy for our favorite stars growing their families — take a peek at who’s welcomed a baby in 2021.
