It’s safe to say that 2018 hasn’t exactly been rainbows and butterflies, but the year has also brought many wonderful things: We’ve been treated to multiple royal weddings (including, yes, Priyanka Chopra‘s) as well as a year in celebrity coupledom that’s given us all the feels.
But one of our favorite parts of 2018 has been the births of so many snuggly, adorable A-list babies. From Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s newest junior royal, Prince Louis, to the multiple princesses of Calabasas (looking at you, True, Chicago, and Internet-breaking Stormi), there were so many debuts to celebrate, whether it was a celebrity’s first child or a wonderful new addition to the brood. Meet the famous babies of 2018, right this way.
Kylie Jenner never confirmed her pregnancy (with boyfriend Travis Scott) until little Stormi was actually born in February. “My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst,” she wrote on Instagram shortly after Stormi was born.
(Kylie’s first photo of her daughter, by the way, broke Instagram’s record for most-liked photo of all time—not too bad of a debut for the newest member of this social-media-loving family.)
There was much drama surrounding the April birth of Khloé Kardashian’s first child with NBA player Tristan Thompson: His cheating scandal broke right before she went into labor with their adorable daughter, True. But the new mom seems be loving her latest role—and is still with Thompson.

Former HGTV Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines announced the birth of their son, Crew, on social media in June. “Our baby boy, Crew Gains, is here and we couldn’t be more in love,” Joanna wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the newborn in the hospital room. “He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early – which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”
Kulture Kiari Cephus
Nobody in pop culture seemed to have a bigger year than Cardi B—and that included the birth of her first child with then-husband Offset (the couple is now divorcing). Although Kulture was born in July, we didn’t see a picture of her until after her parents announced their split in early December.
Rani Rose Fujikawa
A simple “She’s here,” announced the arrival of Kate Hudson‘s first daughter with partner Danny Fujikawa in October. She also revealed that Rani’s name is a tribute to her late grandfather, Ron Fujikawa.
