Surprise! Guess Who is a Mom?

Even celebrities can hear their internal clock ticking when it comes to starting a family. In the last several years, we have seen many top celebrities put their careers on hold and prioritize adding to their families. Many celebrities enjoy having the public take their pregnancy journey along with them. Others stay so under the radar that even the top fans aren’t aware of their impending arrivals.

Here is a list of some celebrities who have started families in the past couple of years. You may be surprised at some of them!

Brenda Song and McCauley Culkin often said they’d like to start a family as far back as 2018. On April 5, 2021, the couple welcomed their son, Dakota. The couple had a second child recently, but the public only found that out when it was confirmed by Culkin’s brother, Kieran Culkin.

Paris Hilton and her husband Carter Reum became parents via surrogate in January 2023. No one was aware of the event until a photo was seen of Paris holding the precious little hand of her sweet baby.

Riley Keough, that’s right, Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, is now a mom! Riley and her husband, Ben Smith-Peterson, welcomed their first child in 2022. The public was unaware of the child until she mentioned her daughter at her mother, Lisa Marie Presley’s memorial.

Rebel Wilson announced that she was a proud mom in late 2022. The child, who is named Royce Lillian, was born via surrogate. The actress and her partner are over the moon about their new addition.
