2020 has been a year to remember, mostly because everyone wants to forget it! But, the silver lining in a global pandemic and the continued fight for social justice is the amount of celebrity babies born! Throughout quarantine, superstar moms powered through pregnancy and endured labor and childbirth during a very uncertain time. As such, we felt it only was right to look back at some of the amazing parents with their newborn babies!
Like any doting parent, a number of celebs immediately took to social media to announce the arrival of their bundles of joy! A few of the images posted on Instagram came directly from the hospital beds of these celebs — but a few were captured in the intimate moments just days — even weeks — after they were born. Take a look below at stars with their babies, who were welcomed into the world during quarantine!

Bachelor In Paradise alums Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert are officially outnumbered! The couple welcomed their newest addition on November 14 and Jade has been smitten ever since. “Reed wiggled his way over to the left side of my chest where his ear found my heartbeat; his whole body calmed down and his eyes opened wide.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas welcomed their sweet little girl, Willa, in July! The couple kept Sophie’s pregnancy very quiet, and didn’t even address it with the press.
