Hollywood just gets cuter and cuter, and the celebrity babies of 2021 are no exception. But before we talk about all the stars who have given birth or welcomed newborns in the past year, let’s look back at the celebrity babies born in 2020 because there sure were a lot of them.
2020 may be remembered as a dumpster fire, but for many stars, it marked a happy time where they became first-time parents or added new kids to their ever-growing families. In August 2020, Katy Perry became a first-time mom after she welcomed daughter Daisy Dove Bloom with partner Orlando Bloom. In September 2020, Perry went on a Twitter thread about how much she admires her mom now that she’s a parent. “Popular misconception: being a mom isn’t a full time job,” she wrote. “part 2: when a mom finally goes back to work (whatever profession they do) it’s not like they been coming from months of “time off…” she’s coming from a full time job… of being a mom, lol.” She continued, “Part 3: call your mom and tell her you love and appreciate her and advocate for paid family leave!…Part 4. I love my job.”
Along with Perry, other first-time moms in 2021 include Lea Michele (who welcomed her first child with husband Zandy Reich in August 2020), Emma Roberts (who gave birth to her newborn with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund in December 2020) and Nikki Bella (who gave birth to her son a day apart from her sister Brie Bella.) Who will be the stars who welcome kids this year? Meet the celebrity babies of 2021 ahead.
Baby name: Grace Warrior Irwin
Steve Irwin’s daughter announced the birth of her first child with her husband, Chandler Powell, in March 2021. She revealed in an Instagram Post that her baby girl was born on the same day as her wedding anniversary. “March 25, 2021. Celebrating the two loves of my life,” she captioned a photo of her and Powell cradling their newborn. “Happy first wedding anniversary to my sweetheart husband and day of birth to our beautiful daughter. Grace Warrior Irwin Powell.”
Irwin went on to reveal the inspiration behind baby Grace’s name. “Our graceful warrior is the most beautiful light. Grace is named after my great-grandmother, and relatives in Chandler’s family dating back to the 1700s,” she wrote. “Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior. Her last name is Powell and she already has such a kind soul just like her dad.”
“There are no words to describe the infinite amount of love in our hearts for our sweet baby girl,” she continued. She chose the perfect day to be born and we feel tremendously blessed.”
