Thanks to COVID-19, the last couple of years have been challenging to say the least. Luckily for us, however, there is always some good news in the world to keep our spirits lifted—like celebrities giving birth to little bundles of joy, for example.
During 2020, we experienced a major baby boom with the onset of the pandemic, with celebrities like Amanda Seyfried, Gigi Hadid, and Emma Roberts all welcoming little ones. In 2021, the boom only continued, as stars like K.J. Apa, Halsey, Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost, Olivia Munn and John Mulaney, and Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin all became parents.
With A-list celebs like Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, and more currently expecting, 2022 is sure to be yet another year of nonstop Hollywood newborns. Here are all of the celebrities who have welcomed babies in 2022.
Post Malone and His Fiancée
Post Malone is officially a dad! The Grammy-nominated artist and his fiancée welcomed a baby girl into the world! The rockstar revealed the big news on Monday, June 13, 2022 during his appearance on The Howard Stern Show. While talking to Stern, the singer mentioned that he “kissed” his “baby girl” before leaving his studio recently, hinting at his daughter’s arrival. E! News has also confirmed the news.
The announcement comes about a month after the duo shared they were expecting a baby together. “I’m excited for this next chapter of my life,” the rapper told E! News in a statement. “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”
The musician still hasn’t specified the exact date his fiancée gave birth, and he hasn’t even shared when he popped the question. For the most part, the couple keeps their relationship out of the public eye. We’re beyond thrilled for them!
Shay Mitchell and Matte Babel
Actress Shay Mitchell and her longtime partner Matte Babel have officially welcomed a baby girl into their lives! Shay announced the birth of her new daughter with a sweet Instagram post where she's wearing a necklace featuring her baby's name "Rome." She captioned the post, "Losing the most important person in my life in the same year I welcomed my second daughter has shifted everything for me, but one thing remains steady in my soul — I’m certain they spent time together and that brings me peace and joy. We’re so happy you’re here Rome, named after my best friend, my soulmate, my “person,” my Grandma Romaine. ❤️"
We absolutely love the sentimental choice of name for the couple's new baby. Plus, Rome is now going to be a little sister to their two-year-old daughter, Atlas Noa. We are wishing Shay, Matte, and their growing family all the best!
Jenna Ushkowitz and David Stanley
Jenna Ushkowitz is officially a new mom! The Glee star and her husband, David Stanley, welcomed their first child into the world—and it’s a girl! The actress revealed the big news with a sweet photo on Instagram, which provided a glimpse of her daughter’s hand. “Our hearts have burst wide open,” she captioned the post.
Ushkowitz first announced she was pregnant with a baby girl back in January 2022. The duo got married on July 24, 2021 (and had their wedding on the cover of a Brides digital issue!), and they’ve been dating since June 2018. This is their first child together. We just know they’re going to be amazing parents!
Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn
It’s a girl! Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn are now parents of two! The pop sensation announced on May 19 that he and his wife welcomed a daughter into the world. “Want to let you know we’ve had another beautiful baby girl,” the singer posted on Instagram. “We are both so in love with her and over the moon to be a family of four.”
The couple are already parents to daughter Lyra Antarctica, who was born in August 2020. In December 2021, Sheeran opened up about how becoming a dad has helped him find a purpose outside of his career. “I just found that I really didn’t have purpose outside of [music] because when I was giving myself fixed time of no work, I wasn’t doing anything I enjoyed because I love doing music,” the pop star told Ellen DeGeneres. “[Being a dad] has actually given me purpose and something in life that’s actually more important than my job.” We’re thrilled to see their family growing!
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents! The pop star gave birth to a baby boy with her rapper boyfriend on May 13 in Los Angeles, TMZ reported on May 19. The power couple first announced that they were expecting their first child together back in January.

Rihanna has also talked about her unconventional approach when it comes to fashion. In April, she admitted to Vogue that she refuses to wear maternity clothes. “I’m sorry, it’s too much fun to get dressed up,” she revealed to the publication. “I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”
The duo first made their relationship official in November 2020. We know they’re going to be amazing parents, and we couldn't be happier for them!

Grimes also said the couple plans on welcoming more children, too. “We’ve always wanted at least three or four.”
