Celebrity Miracle Babies Who Beat The Odds

We love watching our favorite celebs go through pregnancy and motherhood, but some famous moms had a life-threatening road to delivery. Check out our five favorite miracle babies and the strong mothers who delivered them.

Celebrity moms may have fame and fortune, but they’re not exempt from life-threatening pregnancy and birth complications with their little bundles of joy.

In the weeks after Finn Davey‘s birth, Tori Spelling revealed that her littlest bundle of joy almost didn’t make it. She suffered from placenta previa — where the placenta grows in the lowest part of the uterus and causes excessive bleeding — and feared she would miscarry.

“The first bleed happened at eight weeks… I looked down and saw blood. My heart dropped. I started screaming for [my husband] Dean [McDermott] and told him, ‘I just had a miscarriage.’ But the next day I went to the hospital and the doctor said everything was fine.” she told Us Weekly. “When I first heard his cry and Dean looked over at me and said, ‘We have our Finn!” I was overjoyed.”

Giuliana Rancic and husband Bill Rancic also had a long road to deliver their baby Edward Duke. After years of failed fertility treatments — and a miscarriage — Giuliana discovered she had breast cancer, and had to put her pregnancy plans on pause.

Fortunately, they were able to deliver a healthy baby boy via gestational surrogate on Aug. 29!

“This was the best year of my life because of the baby and it was the worst year of my life because of the breast cancer,” Giuliana told Savannah Guthrie on the Today show on Sept. 19. “But it just goes to show that if you’re strong and you’re positive, great things can come out of the darkest time in your life.”

Rosie Pope also struggled to conceive her daughter Vivienne Madison, and feared she would never be able to have another baby. However, her miracle arrived just in time for Mother’s Day! Vivienne was born on May 13.
