Prince Harry, Andy Cohen and More First-Time Dads Who Are Celebrating Their First Father's Day
Happy Father’s Day!
Over the past 12 months, a number of famous men have welcomed their first child and will be enjoying the holiday in an entirely new light. Among them are actors, chefs, singers and, of course, one red-headed prince. Take a look at all the men who are brand-new dads in 2019.
In mid-October, Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, officially became parents when they welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Arthur.
“Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well,” a rep for the couple told ET at the time.
Pippa, the younger sister of Kate Middleton, married the famous British race car driver just five months earlier.
Just a month into the new year, TV personality Andy Cohen revealed that he had welcomed a baby boy via surrogate. He broke the news with a touching post on Instagram featuring a black-and-white photo of himself holding his new bundle of joy.
"WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen," Cohen captioned the image. "He is 9 lbs 2 ounces !! 20 inches !! Born at 6:35 pm, PT. He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow."
Harry Shum Jr.
On March 28, Crazy Rich Asians star Harry Shum Jr. and his wife, Shelby Rabara, welcomed a precious baby girl that they named Xia.
The proud couple offered fans their first glimpse at their little one in their birth announcement on social media, which showcased their daughter’s feet as she lay in blankets.
The pair framed the image with a lyric from Elton John’s classic track, “Your Song”: “How wonderful life is, now you’re in the world.”
Rabara reposted the image, captioning it, “My everythings.”
As spring arrived, a number of celebs welcomed babies including Amy Schumer and husband Chris Fischer, a chef who works on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. It’s the first child for them both.
They broke the news with a touching post on Instagram featuring the 37-year-old comedian holding her baby boy, named Gene, as Fischer plants a kiss on her temple.
"10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born," Schumer wrote, a tongue-in-cheek nod to another baby boy who arrived just hours later.
After months of anticipation, Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle became proud parents to a boy named Archie on May 6.
"I'm very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy this early morning," the 34-year-old prince told reporters soon afterward. "A very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It's been the most amazing experience I can ever have possibly imagined."
"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension," he continued. "But, we're both absolutely thrilled. And so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It's been amazing. So we just wanted to share this with everybody."
The birth of the duke and duchess’ child comes less than a year after they tied the knot in what was arguably the biggest wedding of 2018.
On May 16, the crooner revealed that he had become a father as well, posting an adorable photo of his newborn son fast asleep in a onesie covered in black bears.
"My son Noah. We are blessed and overjoyed. Peace," the singer, whose real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson, captioned the heartwarming image.
Arie Luyendyk Jr.
After hours of exciting updates, The Bachelor’s Arie Luyendyk Jr. revealed on social media that he and wife Lauren Burnham had welcomed a girl named Alessi Ren.
"We have a healthy BEAUTIFUL baby girl 6lbs, 13oz long ... Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy," Luyendyk wrote in a post on his Instagram Story.
Congrats to all the new dads!
