If you thought 2021 was full of surprising celebrity baby announcements, then think again. 2022 is here and with this new year comes several new additions to famous families. Now, we haven’t always been super tuned in to which celebrity couples and parents are welcoming little ones. But given how we’ve spent so much time indoors during the pandemic, we can’t help but live ever-so-slightly vicariously through these families as their little ones join them earth-side.
2022’s celebrity baby births kicked off with an exciting surprise when Michelle Kwan revealed that she’d become a mom! The former figure skater and Olympic medalist took to Instagram to announce the birth of her baby girl, Kalista Belle Kwan.
Like many first-time moms, Kwan couldn’t contain her excitement, and the caption to her Instagram announcement practically left us in tears. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom and, to me, she’s a perfect miracle. I had a hard time picturing what she might look like yet it seems like she’s been in my life forever. This has been a challenging journey to motherhood (not to mention a very long labor!!!) and I’m glad I never gave up,” an excerpt from Kwan’s announcement read.
Model Ashley Graham and her husband Justin Ervin also welcomed new additions this year — that’s right we said additions, plural! Graham took to Twitter on January 7 to announce that she’d given birth to her twin boys, making her family a party of five. “I’m taking some time to heal up and connect with my husband and three boys, but I truly can not wait to share more with you all,” part of her announcement read.
So, who else joined Michelle Kwan and Ashley Graham in welcoming their own bundles of joy this year? Check out our round-up for more celebrity babies of 2022.
