There’s always reason to celebrate a baby’s birth, but when our favorite celebrities add to their families, we can get downright giddy!
1. Blue Ivy Carter
R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé welcomed daughter Blue Ivy on January 7, 2012. The superstar couple released a touching statement to announce the birth of their first child.
“Hello Hello Baby Blue!” they stated. “We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”
2. India Rose Hemsworth
The Avengers star Chris Hemsworth welcomed first child, daughter India Rose, with his wife Elsa Pataky on May 11, 2012. The Snow White and the Huntsman actor said fatherhood has been smooth sailing so far.
“She’s been great,” Chris gushed of his newborn daughter. “She sleeps very well. Not out of any skill on my behalf, but my wife has been amazing.” The Aussie actor adds that fatherhood has already shifted his perspective: “Just her being here. It’s certainly taken all my focus and attention away from work — or what have you — but that’s the main thing on my brain right now. It’s wonderful.”
3. Samuel Garner Affleck
Already parents to daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, nearly 4, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck finally welcomed a son, Samuel Garner, on February, 27, 2012. The proud mom-of-three opened up about their newest family member.
“He is so chill… He reaches when he sees me and he laughs a lot,” Jennifer said. “He thinks I’m super funny. What more do you want?”
4. Olive Barrymore Kopelman
E.T. star Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman welcomed their first child, daughter Olive, on September 26, 2012. “We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter,” the newlyweds announced.
“I can’t wait until I have my children,” Drew said just weeks before welcoming baby Olive. “I love the idea that they don’t have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to. I will be so surprised if they don’t want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I’ll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”
5. Maxwell Drew Johnson
Singer-turned-entrepreneur Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed their first child, daughter Maxwell Drew, on May 1, 2012. And by all accounts, it seems the Fashion Star mentor has taken to motherhood like a duck to water.
“I am so in love with baby Maxwell,” the new mom gushed. “I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”

After nine years of marriage to Michael Stone, we were sorry to hear Mayim Bailik‘s divorce announcement last week.
But they’re not the only ones. It seems there’s a new split every other week among Hollywood’s couples. But there’s a few duos that keep the flame burning in Tinseltown. From David and Victoria Beckham’s 13-year union, to Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick’s two decade-plus marriage, let’s take a look at 10 Hollywood couples with strong marriages.
1. David and Victoria Beckham
David and Victoria Beckham are practically British royalty. Dubbed ‘Posh and Becks’ by the media, the longtime couple have been married for 13 years.
Seemingly blissful since their July 1999 wedding, the British power couple have four children together: sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, 7, and 1-year-old daughter Harper.
“Our house is a really happy house,” Victoria said. “There are kids running around and laughing and joking, I smile so much more than people would think. There’s nothing better than being in LA with my kids, cooking dinner with my husband and having a romantic night in…I’m growing older with the most amazing man I’ve ever met – with my soul mate. Life’s great.”
2. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
Married for 7 years, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck seem like one of the happiest couples in Hollywood with their three children: daughters Violet, nearly 7, and Seraphina, nearly 4, and 9-month-old son Samuel.
The Garflecks, who wed in June 2005, seem like the perfect match.
“Jennifer played such a profound role in making me a better person,” Ben said. “We don’t have a perfect marriage, but she inspired me; and finding myself in that marriage and having a child dovetailed with getting to be a little more mature.” He added of his wife, “She truly is kind. She means no one any harm. She doesn’t have ill will for any person. She’s not competitive with other people. She’s not spiteful. It’s one of those things where it becomes almost aggravating at times. Every time I go, ‘F— him!’ I see in her face that she just thinks that’s petty and small.”
3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
Rockstar couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have been married for 10 years and appear to have the perfect family-of-four with their two sons, Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4.
After celebrating their 2002 wedding with three ceremonies, the No Doubt frontwoman recently said marriage can be hard, but a dream come true.
“My biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far,” Gwen said. “Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”
She went on to say they are closer than ever after a decade together.
“[Our relationship] is better than it’s ever been. Like, we’re learning about each other all the time. He’s an amazing dad, he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me! He balances me out. And he – he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does.”
