Emma Roberts, Jessica Biel And 8 Other Celebrities Who Welcomed A Baby In Quarantine

Becoming a mom is hard enough, but being pregnant and a celebrity and stuck living a quarantined life makes things even more complicated.

For a lot of those in the world, 2020 was a dismal affair. With a global pandemic running rabid all over the place, people were isolated in their homes and told to stay away as to curve those COVID numbers. And while it may have seemed bleak, it wasn’t too bad for a handful of people – especially those celebrities who became parents again…or for the first time.

Being pregnant is hard enough, but being pregnant and a celebrity and stuck living a quarantined life is even more complicated. These 10 celebrities welcomed a new addition to their family and managed to do so during a really tough year, so let’s celebrate them, shall we?

10 Emma Roberts And Garrett Hedlund

“Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right,” actor Emma Roberts wrote on Instagram, welcoming her and Garrett Hedlund’s young son Rhodes Robert Hedlund into the world. Roberts appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan in December, becoming the first pregnant woman to land on the cover of the famous magazine!

9 Jessica Biel And Justin Timberlake

Both Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are those rare celebrity parents who work hard to keep their pregnancy a secret and they pulled it off yet again with the birth of baby No. 2, who arrived during the pandemic. Timberlake announced the birth of son Phineas (not pictured) on the Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show back in January.

8 Billie Lourd And Austen Rydell

When actress Billie Lourd announced she had given birth to her son, Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell, she shared that the name of her son was in honor of her late mother, actress Carrie Fisher. Billie Lourd didn’t even announce the news that she and fiance Austen Rydell were expecting until after the baby had arrived!

7 Chris Pratt And Katherine Schwarzenegger

Us Weekly

In August, actor Chris Pratt (who still remains one of the most famous Chrises in Hollywood) did the hip thing and announced the birth of his daughter Lyla, with wife Katherine Schwarzenegger on Instagram. He said that both mom and baby were doing great and that they are “extremely blessed.”

6 Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom welcomed baby girl named Daisy Dove in August and Bloom shared a post from the charity Unicef to announce the news. “Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and @OrlandoBloom’s new bundle of joy,” the post said. “‘We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,’ Katy and Orlando told us.”

5 Mindy Kaling


It’s not easy being pregnant, ESPECIALLY during a global pandemic, and no one explains that better than actor Mindy Kaling, who gave birth to her second child while in quarantine in September – a son named Spencer. Kaling announced it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Luckily for fans, Kaling is always willing to use humor in order to share the hardships of being a mother with her fans, and we adore her so much for it.

4 Donald Glover And Michelle White

Donald Glover and girlfriend Michelle White managed to fly under the radar and quietly brought Glover’s third child, a son named Donald, into the world in September. “It was such an intense, weird moment because I’m watching that video and it’s like eight minutes long, so you’re sitting there and I had just had this amazing, joyful, expanding moment, plus my dad had passed away recently, so [my son] was named after my father,” Glover said.

3 Amanda Seyfried And Thomas Sadoski

Everyone knows that Amanda Seyfried is a notoriously private person, so when she shared that she and her husband Thomas Sadoski welcomed a baby boy (named Thomas) into the world during the lockdown, her fans were thrilled. The two also have a three-year-old daughter named Nina.

2 Joe Jonas And Sophie Turner

Fans were beyond thrilled to learn that the “Queen of the North” herself, Sophie Turner, and Joe Jonas were expecting a baby last year. Although Us Weekly broke the pregnancy news for this couple, they did try to keep most things private until Tuner gave birth in July to a daughter named Willa. Every now and then, we’ll see an Instagram pop up with the happy family, but fans are calling for more photos of the little one.

1 Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik

Back in September, supermodel Gigi Hadid shared the news that both she and Zayn Malik welcomed a baby girl into the world, but she didn’t leak what they named her….until four months later in the most subtle way possible: She added “Khai’s mom” to her Instagram bio back in January. Talk about being completely secretive – but in the best way possible.
