Eight Great New Celebrity Families for the Holidays!
The Holiday Season is a time for family and giving, and these eight families have given us plenty of smiles and warmth all year long. Join us as we congratulate them on their first holiday celebrations!
It was arguably the most famous birth of the year, and Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed Prince George into the world on July 22nd in London, England. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will celebrate their first Christmas as proud parents, and they couldn’t be more excited about their family expansion.
Following George’s arrival, a rep from Kensington Palace announced, "Mother, son and father are all doing well this morning. We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received."
2. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
There will be plenty of presents under the tree for baby North West (born on June 15th) on her first Christmas, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West can’t wait to play Santa and Mrs. Claus. However, the “Love Lockdown” rapper insists that he’s the most blessed this holiday season. Speaking of his fiancé, Kanye gushed, "She's my joy, and she brought my new joy into the world and there's no paparazzi and there's no blog comment that's gonna take that joy from me."
3. Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson & Josh Duhamel
True love always multiplies, and Fergie and Josh Duhamel’s affections brought forth their son Axl on August 29th. Given mommy’s affinity for music, it’s no wonder the little guy is already getting into the game. Fergie explained, “We have our own little home-written songs. We harmonize and we sing together. We can be quite corny.” Perhaps Axl will be getting his own microphone from Santa this year!
4. Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan-Tatum
They’ll be trimming the tree as a trio this Christmas, and Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum couldn’t be happier about their gorgeous little girl Everly. The genetically-blessed tyke was born on May 31st in London, England while daddy was working on a film. Shortly after their baby’s arrival, Jenna and Channing’s rep shared, "Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are thrilled to announce the both of their daughter, Everly Tatum… Sending love and light to Chan, Jenna and Ms Everly!"
5. Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
They’re one of the cutest couples in Hollywood, and back in March, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard added a third wheel to their family tricycle. Following the birth, the “Without a Paddle” hunk tweeted, "Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has her mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breast. Hooray!" And while mom and dad have both been busy with career duties as of late, they’re planning on taking some time off to fire up the Yule Log and decorate Christmas cookies in December.
6. Shakira & Gerard Pique
It wasn’t long after New Year’s Day that Shakira and her beau Gerard Pique said hello to their first child Milan. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer took to her website to announce the news- "We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22 at 9.36pm in Barcelona, Spain. The name Milan (pronouced MEE-lahn) means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification. Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth." And while he can have pretty much whatever he wants for Christmas, something tells us Milan’s getting some soccer gear for his first holiday celebration.
7. Evan Rachel Wood & Jamie Bell
They kept things pretty low-key with regard to their baby’s arrival, and Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell are over the moon about Baby Bell’s birth (July 29th). Though they’ve declined to share the child’s name, the “Wrestler” actress and her hubby weren’t shy about publicly displaying their gratitude via social media. Jamie tweeted, "Wow! What a day. Evan you are my warrior. You never cease to amaze me. Thank you for birthing our son so naturally & peacefully. You did it!" With so much to be thankful for and even more to look forward to, things in the Wood/Bell household are definitely merry this year.
8. Jimmy Fallon & Nancy Juvonen
He’s easily the most lovable (and huggable) host on nighttime television, so when Jimmy Fallon announced his wife Nancy Juvonen gave birth to daughter Winnie Rose back in July, Tinseltown all voiced a collective, “Awwww!” Of his newfound fatherhood, the “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” host gushed, "It's been a crazy couple of days — well, actually, just one day. It was just yesterday. It feels like I've had a four day conference. It's very taxing on the fathers. I don't know how it is for the mothers, but (it's) very taxing (for us). I'm emotionally drained. I'm a father of a beautiful baby girl. She's so cute. Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon and she's so cute. She's five pounds, nine ounces."
This year, Jimmy and Nancy will have an extra stocking to hang on their mantle, and even more love to celebrate with cheer!
