Sometimes it’s hard to remember that in most ways, celebrities are just like us — and they go through many of the same life experiences that we do, in the same way that we do. One of those experiences is giving birth, both the joys and special moments as well as the worry and scary moments. Like most people, many Hollywood parents plan to give birth in the hospital and pack their hospital bags ahead of time. But what do they choose to pack?
In this slideshow, we take a peek inside the hospital bags of our favorite celebrity moms, and what we find inside might surprise you. From the essential clothing items Kristen Bell needed while giving birth to the unexpected items that Whitney Port, former star of The Hills, packed in her designer bag, you may be surprised to see how these moms prepared for the arrival of their babies.
