This year brought us a new set of celebrity babies to gush about. From Luna to Dream, there was plenty of cuteness to go around!
Here’s a roundup of some of the A-list kids who entered the world in 2016.
1.Luna Simone Stephens (Chrissy Teigen and John Legend)
We’ve been able to watch Luna grow before our eyes ever since she was born on April 14. It’s easy to see the resemblance between Luna and her famous parents!
Legend has clearly embraced fatherhood, as Teigen discussed with TODAY in November.
“[I]t’s really cool to see … It’s silly to say the ‘softer side’ to John because obviously he’s the most loving, sweetest, romantic person on the planet. But to see this with a little baby and a little someone who looks just like him and to see them together and to see her light up when she’s with him, is really cool because she’s just like, he can do no wrong," Teigen said at the time.
2. Dusty Rose Levine (Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo)
The "Voice” coach and his model wife welcomed Dusty Rose on Sept. 21. A couple of days later, the married couple introduced their child on Instagram, posting a heart-melting pic of Dusty Rose lying on Levine’s tattooed chest. So sweet!
3. Daughter No. 2 (Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively)
We’re still awaiting word on the name of Reynolds and Lively’s second child, who was born in September. We didn’t even know the child’s gender until the “Deadpool” star seemingly spilled the beans with a tweet on Oct. 20: “The mobile above my daughter's crib is just a whole bunch of NuvaRings. So she remembers how lucky she is.”
Reynolds dropped another hint during a Nov. 2 appearance on “Conan,” when he joked that there is a “lot of estrogen” in his house.
4. Daisy Josephine Sudeikis (Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis)
Daisy came in like a lamb … or, rather, on a lamb. What baby wouldn’t want to rest on a pillow like this one?
Wilde and Sudeikis’ second child was born on Oct. 11. The engaged couple also has a son, Otis, who’s 2 ½. Otis helped his mom announce her pregnancy back in April.
5. Journey River Green (Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green)
Journey River Green made quite the impression on his mom before he was born in August. Fox claimed during a spring appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that she was receiving messages from her then-unborn baby.
"For instance, this baby wanted me to live somewhere else, so we're moving to a whole different place in Los Angeles because I feel like that's where this baby wants to be raised,” the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” actress explained. Who knows what Journey is telling his parents to do these days!
Journey is Fox's third child with Green. Green also has a teenage son from a previous relationship.
6. Dimitri Portwood Kutcher (Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis)
Dmitri was born on Nov. 30, and for now he’s just enjoying life away from the spotlight.
"We'd like to allow our kids to make their own choices on whether to have a life in the public eye or not," Kutcher was quoted by his website, A Plus, as saying. "We don't want to make the choice for them."
Kutcher and Kunis also have a daughter, Wyatt, who’s 2.
7. Amada Lee Gosling (Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes)
Amada Lee joined Gosling, Mendes and older sister Esmeralda Amada on April 29. Mendes, who lost her brother, Carlos Mendez, to cancer earlier in April, explained the meaning behind Amada Lee’s name in an interview with Latina Magazine.
"We went with Amada because it was something we kept going back to. And it was an emotional time with the passing of my brother," Mendes said. "We thought how beautiful to go with what made us emotional and with what felt like her. When we looked at her, we thought, 'Aww, Amadita.'"
Mendes noted in another interview a few years ago that Amada was her grandmother’s name.
8. Dream Renee Kardashian (Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna)
We were all keeping up with a new Kardashian on Nov. 10, when Dream made her debut.
Rob Kardashian wasted no time in sharing photos of his newborn daughter, writing in one Instagram post, “I am so lucky!! Thank you @blacchyna for having our baby and being so strong ! I love you so much and can't wait to see her get older day by day with you Chy!”
Blac Chyna also has a 4-year-old son, King Cairo, with her ex Tyga, the boyfriend of Kardashian's half-sister Kylie Jenner.
9. Violet Krasinski (Emily Blunt and John Krasinski)
Krasinski, best known for his role as Jim on “The Office,” brought fireworks to his Twitter account on July 4 by informing his followers that he was a new dad.
Violet joined her older sister, Hazel, who turns 3 in February.
10. Remington Alexander Blackstock (Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock)
The former “American Idol” champion took to Twitter to let her fans know about her new bundle of joy, who was born April 12. “(H)e is healthy & we couldn't be happier or more in love!” she declared.
Clarkson has had her hands full with both Remington and her older child, 2-year-old daughter River Rose, as evidenced in a snapshot from a family trip to Disney World in November.
She’s also a stepmom to her husband’s two kids from a previous marriage.
11. Elías Bublé (Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato)
The singer announced the birth of his second son on January 22. “And then there were 4. Introducing Noah's little brother Elias Bublé,” he captioned a family photo.
Sadly, Bublé and his wife revealed in November that their 3-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer.
12. Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman (Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman)
After the Oscar winner gave birth to her first child in March, she shared the confidence she was feeling in her post-pregnancy body.
In August, Hathaway posted a pic of a pair of jeans cut into shorts, and declared, “There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all). There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer's are just too dang short for this summer's thighs.
“Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise.),” the actress added.
13. Caleb Kelechi Asomugha (Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha)
The “Scandal” star gave birth to her new son on Oct. 5, E! News reported. She and her husband, a former NFL star, also have a daughter, Isabelle Amarachi, who was born in 2014.
14. Leonardo Ángel Charles Baldwin (Alec and Hilaria Baldwin)
Alec and Hilaria Baldwin’s newest addition to their family certainly looks like a precious Ángel, doesn’t he?
We were introduced to Leonardo Ángel Charles, born Sep. 12, via Hilaria Baldwin’s Instagram feed.
The Baldwins have three kids together. Alec Baldwin also has a 21-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
15. Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan (Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie)
What a year it’s been for Baccarin and McKenzie, co-stars on the TV series “Gotham.” On Mar. 2, they became parents to a daughter they named Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan. Confused by the name? "Setta" and "Schenkkan" come from Baccarin and McKenzie's original surnames, respectively.
Baccarin also has a 3-year-old son, Julius, with ex-husband Austin Chick.
There's even more excitement ahead for Baccarin and McKenzie. In late November, a source close to the couple confirmed to TODAY that McKenzie and Baccarin are “happily engaged.” And we’re happy for them!
16. Ashe Olsen Meyers (Seth Meyers and Alexi Meyers)
Meyers undoubtedly had even later nights once Ashe Olsen Meyers entered the fold on Mar. 27. If you’re wondering how he and his wife, Alexi, came up with their child’s name, Ashe is Alexi's maiden name, and Olsen is Meyers' mother's maiden name.
Meyers took us behind the scenes of Ashe’s birth with an emotional and entertaining story on “Late Night.”
17. Sam (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys)
Russell revealed the gender and name of her child, born in May, during an interview with TODAY. "He's so good," she told Matt Lauer in early July. "He's big and fat and nice."
Sam is Russell’s first child with her “Americans” co-star, Matthew Rhys. She also has two children with ex-husband Shane Deary.
18. Ode Mountain DeLorenzo Malone (Jena Malone and Ethan DeLorenzo)
A contender for “most memorable baby name of 2016”! Shortly after the birth of her son in May, “The Hunger Games” star posted an ode to her bundle of joy on Instagram, accompanied by a cute family photo.
“The best weekend of our lives!!! What an incredible blessing to be chosen by this amazing, kind, gentle and beautiful soul to be his parents. Humbled and in complete awe that we get to experience the most ancient and transcendent love that exists. Thank you Ode Mountain DeLorenzo Malone,” she wrote.
Ode Mountain is the first child for the actress and her now-fiancé, Ethan DeLorenzo. She got engaged to the photographer in August.
19. James Miller Koman (Ellie Kemper and Michael Koman)
James was born in early August, but we didn’t find out his name until a few months later, when his mom spilled the beans to People magazine. “What if we were so mortified by his name we were like, ‘Don’t tell anyone!’” she joked.
The “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star decided to keep the gender of her child a surprise until he entered the world. “We have it in an envelope, actually. But I haven't looked!" she told TODAY back in April.
20. York Banks Asla (Tyra Banks and Erik Asla)
In late January, we learned of “America’s Next Top Baby.” Tyra Banks announced on Instagram that she and her partner, photographer Erik Asla, welcomed a baby boy, York Banks Asla, via surrogate.
The model and TV host posted a photo of York’s baby hat and wrote, “The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik's mouth and chin.”
21. Freddie Reign Tomlinson (Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth)
As a member of One Direction, Louis Tomlinson is used to screaming fans. But in January, he had to get used to a crying baby, when he and his now-ex, Briana Jungwirth, welcomed Freddie.
Days after that tweet, Tomlinson gave us a sweet glimpse at his “little lad.”
22. Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway (Alanis Morissette and Mario "Souleye" Treadway)
And we’re here to remind you that Alanis Morissette became mom to a daughter named Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway on June 23. The singer shared a baby pic the following month.
Morissette and her husband, a rapper, also have a son, Ever, who was born in 2010.
