From Paris Hilton to Keke Palmer, here's a look at the celebrities who have recently become first-time mothers.
Adrienne Bailon Houghton
Adrienne Bailon Houghton refers to her experience welcoming a son via surrogate as an "absolute miracle," reaffirming her choice to keep the pregnancy a secret until birth.
Though Adrienne had historically been very open about her struggles to conceive with her husband, Israel Houghton, the stress from her eight IVF attempts and one miscarriage left her feeling extremely vulnerable. When she and Israel learned their hired surrogate was successfully pregnant with what they believed to be the couple's final viable embryo, she decided to go in a different direction.
In September 2022, the Twilight actress and her husband, Paul Khoury, welcomed their first child.
Surprise! Rebel Wilson shocked fans when she announced the birth of her first child via surrogate in November 2022. The Australian actress, who has been candid about her fertility struggles in the past, shared pic of her newborn daughter, Royce Lillian, to Instagram with the little cutie covering her own face with her hand and rocking some unicorn socks and a pale pink onesie.
"Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate 💗" Wilson captioned the shot. "I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle! I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making…but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!"
