Even though 2019 is not even halfway over yet, we can bravely call it the year of the celebrity baby boom. Some had their first kid, like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, while others got “a parcel” from the stork for the fifth time.
5 Fun Facts congratulates both new parents and experienced ones, while this compilation will tell you which celebrity couples got a new addition to their families this year.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
On the 6th of May, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had their first baby. This good news was published on the couple’s official Instagram page. The baby was born weighing 7lbs. 3oz. Both the baby boy and his mother are doing well. Prince Harry was present at the labor and supported Meghan during this important moment.
Their Royal Highnesses thanked their fans for their support and introduced the little prince to the whole world. His full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The son of Harry and Meghan became the 8th great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, becoming the 7th in the line in the succession to the British throne.
37-year-old comedian and actress, Amy Schumer, became a mother at almost the same time as Meghan Markle. This is the first child for Amy and her husband Chris Fisher.
On the 4th of April, the family of the famous British chef and the father of 4 kids, Gordon Ramsay, had his fifth kid. The chef posted a touching photo of his wife and newborn on his Instagram. The photo was taken right in the hospital room just after she gave birth with the following comment: “After 3 baftas and one Emmy… finally we have won an Oscar, please welcome Oscar James Ramsay, who touched down at 12:58 today for some lunch !” Oscar James Ramsay is the name the happy parents gave to their baby.
In January 2019, Tom Hardy and his wife Charlotte Riley had their second son who, according to their loved ones, looks like 2 peas in a pod with his famous daddy. The baby was named Forrest, after the character of the couple’s favorite movie Forrest Gump. We wonder what reaction Tom Hanks had to this pleasant news. Apart from 2 common kids with Charlotte, Tom has an older son, Louis, with his ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed.
Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunakey
On the 19th of April, a 52-year-old Vincent Cassel became a father for the third time. His young wife, 22-year-old Tina Kunakey gave birth to their daughter whom she gave a very unusual name Amazonie.

Cassel’s older daughters were born during his marriage with Monica Bellucci.
On the 19th of March, Jessica Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson became parents for the third time. After 9 months of a rough pregnancy, the couple had a long-awaited daughter, Birdie Mae, weighing 10 lbs 13 oz.

Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva
The 69-year-old actor has become a father for the second time. In February, Gere’s 35-year-old spouse, Alejandra Silva, gave birth to their son. Richard also has an older son, Homer, who was born during his marriage with Carey Lowell. Alejandra has a 6-year-old son, Albert, from her former relationship too. The newborn baby became the first common child of this star couple.
In the large family of Sophie Ellis-Bextor and the bassist of “The Feeling” band, Richard Jones, there are already 4 sons. On the 7th of January, the couple had their fifth son. Despite all the useful pieces of advice that the couple’s fans gave to help them have a baby girl, the strong celebrity family had a baby boy once again. They decided to name him Mickey.
Bonus: Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are going to join the camp of the celebrity baby boom this year too. The couple is expecting their third baby very soon.
Keira Knightley is going to become a mother for the second time too. The actress was caught by the paparazzi at the Chanel J12 party in Paris and it was difficult to not notice her significantly rounded tummy.
Supermodel Miranda Kerr finally confirmed the suspicions of her very observant fans and walked the red carpet of the Gruner & Jahr Spa Awards in a dress emphasizing her rounded belly. She is currently raising a son she had together with Orlando Bloom. Less than one year ago, she and her second husband Evan Spiegel, the founder of Snapchat, gave birth to another baby boy. It’s obvious that this year, the Victoria’s Secret angel is going to become a mother for the third time.
