2018’s already been a HUGE year for celebrity babies – 3 Kardashians all have new babies, and the Duchess of Cambridge has welcomed son Prince Louis to the world.
Hollywood royalty like The Rock and Alec Baldwin, supermodels like Chrissy Teigen and Miranda Kerr – plus plenty of UK popstars – have also become parents this year, too.
With the list of celebs currently expecting growing quickly, we expect we’ll be adding a few more famous births to the list very future!
Here are all the celebs who’ve welcomed babies in 2018, plus first baby pics and baby names…
Love Island‘s Malin Andersson (December 2018)
Love Island star Malin Andersson gave birth to a baby girl named Consy on 23 December 2018 – 7 weeks prematurely.
She shared the news on Instagram in the new year, writing candidly: “Tom and I are so happy to let you all know that our baby girl CONSY arrived in this world 23rd December 2018, 7 weeks early.
“She is so beautiful, we are totally in love with her and feel so blessed that she is here but unfortunately due to complications, she is currently being cared for at Great Ormond Street.
“We have received a number of messages over the past week and there has been a lot of speculation and so we wanted to share our news with you so you could hear from us first hand.
“We are so thankful for the amazing care she is receiving here and promise to update you on her progress but for the time being we hope you can all respect our privacy.”
Very sadly, baby Consy passed away in January 2019, at less than a month old. Our thoughts are with Malin and her family ❤️
David Gandy (December 2018)
David Gandy, who is probs one of the world’s most famous male supermodels, is officially a dad.

“Daddy, Dora and new addition daughter Matilda out for our first dog walk together this morning,” he began.

LOL. Girl power ?

“We’ve got a bit of news. Pur baby boy is going to be a big brother later this year. We can’t wait to meet you precious one x”
It seems a typo in her announcement caused a bit of confusion, though – and left many of her loyal fans thinking her cat was pregnant, instead ???

42-year-old Dec married partner and long-time manager Ali Astall in 2015, and Isla is the first child for both.
Unfortunately, the couple didn’t get the chance to announce their happy news in their own time. The papers beat them to it.
But graciously, geordie star Dec wanted to thank fans for their well wishes, and confirmed it was true in a touching Instagram post.
He wrote: “Just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely messages. The news has sneaked out a little earlier than we had hoped but Ali and I are delighted to be expecting our first child.

We really are absolutely chuffed that Dec has such happy news to celebrate ??
Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig (August 2018)
Some lovely news from this much-loved acting couple – they’ve had their baby ???
It’s thought Rachel gave birth to a daughter in August 2018.
48-year-old Rachel confirmed to the New York Times in April that she and James Bond star Daniel, 50, were expecting their 1st child together.
“I’ll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy. We’re going to have a little human. We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery,” she said.
Mind, this isn’t the first foray into parenthood for either star – as they each have children from previous relationships.

Tom and Giovanna Fletcher (August 2018)

Max was born on 25 August 2018, at 3.06pm, with mum Giovanna using hypnobirthing techniques to help bring him into the world. He weighed 7lb.
Max’s name is a little different to his older brother’s. His middle name, at least, we know is a tribute to Giovanna’s beloved brother Mario.
Michael Buble and Luisana Lopilato (July 2018)
Michael Buble’s now a dad of 3. His wife, Argentinian actress Luisana, announced she’d given birth to a baby girl on Instagram on 26 July 2018.

Russell Brand (July 2018)
It’s yet to be officially confirmed by the couple themselves, but it’s thought that Russell and his wife Laura Gallacher have welcomed their 2nd child!
Yep, it’s being reported all over that Laura gave birth to a sibling for her 20-month-old daughter Mabel, ‘in secret’.
Which basically means: the famously private couple probably didn’t want to make a big public announcement about it.
Well, if the happy news is true, all we’ve got to say is: congrats! (And selfishly, we do wonder if they’ll choose another vintage baby name…)
Steve Backshall and Helen Glover (July 2018)

And they told the mag exclusively that their 3-year-old son Teddy was the one who revealed the big news to dad Adam.

“Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar.
“I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there.
“Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do.
“But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer – watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless.
“And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia – like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life.
“Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck.
“#TianaGiaJohnson? #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE”
Lauren and Dawyne’s toddler daughter, Jasmine Johnson, first announced mum’s pregnancy back in December. She starred in a delighted Instagram post shared with Dwayne’s 96.9 million followers.

All girls. One dude. And a boy dog. I wouldn’t have it any other way. #ItsAGirl #GratefulMan #TequilaTime ???”
Tiana is Lauren’s 2nd child, though Dwayne also has a teenaged daughter named Simone Alexandra, from a previous relationship.

57-year-old actor Hugh Grant’s now a dad of 5, welcoming his 3rd with Swedish wife Anna Eberstein.
Anna’s mum dropped the pregnancy news bombshell on Swedish paper Astonbladet. She didn’t give much away, but confessed: “I’m very happy to be getting another grandchild. She’s due rather soon.”
Ex-girlfriend and best mate Elizabeth Hurley’s the one who confirmed baby no 5 had definitely been born, telling reporters:
“I see [Hugh] a lot; I speak to him a lot. You know, he’s now a father of 5; he has 5 kids and he’s a great dad. Yeah, he will remain my best friend for life.”
She didn’t say exactly when the new arrival came along, so we think it’s either right at the end of Feb, or the very beginning of March 2018.
Hugh and Anna have son John Mungo, born September 2012, and a daughter, born 2015. Hugh also shares 6-year-old Tabitha and 4-year-old Felix Chang with ex-partner Tinglan Hong.

“Baby Johnny Crouch born 3/1/18 7lb2 5.15pm?so in love with our baby boy ?happy healthy and beautiful? xx” Abbey gushed on Instagram.
So, why Johnny? Well, it would seem that Abbey’s named her first son, and her third child overall, after her younger brother John Clancy.
Baby Johnny sure is a cutie. Congrats to the whole fam ?
Rapper Fetty Wap (January 2018)
US rap star Fetty Wap just became a dad 3 months earlier than expected – after his pregnant ex-partner Alexis Skyy went into premature labour at 6 months.
Luckily, Alexis was able to give birth to a baby girl named Alaiya on 2 January 2018. She did weigh in at just a little over 1lb, reports say, and she’ll be staying in the NICU for the time being.
The 23-year-old Love & Hip Hop reality star began broadcasting on Instagram Live before she gave birth, with the rapper by her side.
She said: “They’re gonna have me in the hospital for a long time and I just pray that everything do good. She’s okay, she’s fine.”
“She’s healthy and that’s all that matters to me… the goal is to keep her in there but once your water breaks it kinda is hard.”
She also revealed that both her and 26-year-old Fetty Wap were born prematurely. This is Alexis’ first baby, but the fourth for Fetty Wap. He also has another on the way, according to reports.
We hope little Alaiya will be out of hospital soon ?
