12 Celebrity Couples Who Had a Baby Together After the Breakup

Life doesn’t have a blueprint. That “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage” nursery rhyme often doesn’t apply to modern times as much anymore. Love and relationships are different with every person. Some people happily partner up for their whole lives and even start families without choosing to get married — and sometimes, a baby comes before any kind of relationship commitment. Other times, it can seem like a relationship is progressing along just like the nursery rhyme, but then a breakup happens — and then, so does another baby.

We all remember the bombshell news that Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with Tom Brady’s son, which the public learned of just months after they broke up. And now, everyone’s buzzing about Grimes and Elon Musk’s topsy-turvy relationship. Just when you think you know what’s going on between them, they throw another surprise at you: this time bringing a daughter into the world via surrogacy after announcing their split in 2021.

It doesn’t happen often, but it happens quite a bit in Hollywood! Sometimes, the timing is different and you welcome another bundle of joy, despite the two parents being separated. From Grimes and Elon Musk to an unexpected member of the Palin family, it happens more in Hollywood than you’d think.

Check out all the celebrity couples who had a baby even after they had broken up below.
