8 Celebrities Who Became Moms This Year

With most of us still in various states of quarantine, there’s no doubt that Mother’s Day will look a little different this year. Whether you’ve been stuck at your mom’s house for the last two months, or you’re stuck thousands of miles away, it’s going to be weird. But for all the new moms out there, this Mother’s Day will obviously be different, but for positive reasons. I’m not a mother (shocking, I know!), but I imagine that your first Mother’s Day as an actual mother just hits different. It’s like, a whole day about you, so soak it the f*ck up.

Lately, it feels like there’s been celebrity baby news left and right, from pregnancies to bizarre names, and it’s hard to even keep track of who’s expecting. So, to celebrate Mother’s Day, we put together a list of all the celebrity new moms so far in 2020. Congrats, moms!

Ashley Graham

At 6:00PM on 01/18/2020, we welcomed 7lbs 5oz of love into our world. Meeting our son has made our hearts incredibly full and we can’t wait to introduce him to you on @prettybigdealpod tomorrow…

On January 18th, Ashley Graham gave birth to a baby boy named Isaac, her first child with husband Justin Ervin. Ashley has always been an open book on social media, and her post-pregnancy journey has been no different. She’s gotten real about everything from breastfeeding to stretch marks, and I think we can all appreciate a supermodel who isn’t afraid to drop the Facetune and filters.

Hope Solo is an Olympic and world champion on the soccer field, but now she’s on a new journey as a mom. On March 4th, she gave birth to a seriously cute set of twins, her first kids with husband Jeremy Stevens. She went with some unconventional names: Lorenzo Genghis and Lozen Orianna Judith. Genghis just makes me think of Genghis Khan, and I’m already intimidated.

Mommy got you Ace. #4weeks

A post shared by Malika (@malika) on

One of our favorite Kardashian-adjacent celebs, Malika, gave birth to her first baby, Ace Flores, on March 14th. The baby’s father is rapper O.T. Genasis, and this kid is actually one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen. With all the Kardashians as honorary aunts, I’m sure this baby is going to get a lot of amazing gifts, and I can’t say I’m not jealous.

30 hours of labor ended with an emergency c-section… not what we planned but I learned pretty quickly that night that having a plan for bringing a human into the world is a fool’s errand. All that mattered was that he got here safely. Having him in the middle of a global health crisis was also not in the baby prep books, but here we are. Holding him and healing my body in a maternity ward that’s eerily quiet from us not being allowed visitors or family at this time, but strangely serene. All we hear are monitors beeping and the coos of our infant son. Maybe the sound of the 100th episode of The Office @ryanhurd and I have binged while in here. The admiration we have for the doctors, nurses + healthcare professionals that took care of Hayes & me during our stay cannot be measured in this post. They risked their health every day to make sure ours was okay. I can’t think of anything more selfless than that. Ultimately, I can’t thank every single mother enough for going through what you’ve gone through because I had NO idea how hard it could be, and I’m a measly 4 days in. The world is changing before our eyes and so am I. That’s been a peaceful thing to cling to during these uncertain times. Thinking of you all. 🖤

A post shared by Maren Morris (@marenmorris) on

Country star Maren Morris gave birth to her first baby boy, Hayes Andrew, on March 23rd. Her first post of her baby was incredibly touching, but I’m more impressed by the fact that Maren performed at the Houston Rodeo in a skintight bedazzled bodysuit just two weeks before giving birth. Like, did she not want to take a nap?? They say mothers can do it all, Maren is proving that. I do literally nothing and can barely go on a walk around the block, so much respect.

#tbt to welcoming my baby to the space jam

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

Rachel Bloom, who is low-key one of the funniest people in entertainment, revealed on April 1 that she had given birth to a healthy baby girl. While she hasn’t share many details about her baby, she did post this video on Instagram, in which she’s lip-syncing to “Space Jam” while she’s like… about to give birth. I don’t know what kind of drugs she was on, but I’d like some, thanks.

We’ve seen GG grow up a lot over the years on Shahs of Sunset, and after a tough journey, she finally became a mom on April 27th. On the current season of Shahs, GG decided that she wanted to have a baby on her own, but she suffered a devastating miscarriage, followed by surgery to remove her Fallopian tubes. Fortunately, she had better luck the second time around, and her baby boy Elijah is beautiful and healthy.

Welcome to the world Vanja Sevigny Mačković Born May 2nd New York City Thank you to all the staff at Mt. Sinai East for your bravery, perseverance and kindness, especially the nurses for being so gentle and patient. Blessings to all the other families giving birth during this time. #ilovemyboys 🐣

A post shared by Chloë Sevigny (@chloessevigny) on

On May 2nd, Chloë Sevigny gave birth to a baby girl, Vanja, her first child with boyfriend Sinisa Mačković. In her beautiful Instagram post, she thanked the staff at the hospital, and voiced her support for everyone giving birth during this crazy time. At a time when most of us are trying our best to stay at home, having a baby seems unbelievably stressful, so words like this are exactly what we need.


From the moment we knew that Grimes was expecting her first child with Elon Musk, we knew things would get strange. But our expectations were quickly exceeded once their son was born on May 2nd. In a move that pretty much broke the internet, Musk announced that the baby’s name is X Æ A-12, which is just not a name. Turns out, this name might not even be legal in California, but who knows. At least the baby is healthy, and we can deal with the name nonsense later.

The list of celebs expecting babies keeps growing, so there will be lots more new moms by the time 2020 is over… and I’m sure this quarantine time will only make that list longer. Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, and especially those celebrating for the first time!

Ashley Graham Is Pregnant

Looks like Ashley Graham will be adding Mom to her long list of accomplishments. The supermodel, famous for being the first plus sized model on the cover of Sports Illustrated and championing the body positivity movement, announced today that she and husband Justin Ervin are expecting. “Nine years ago today I married the love of my life,” she wrote in the caption of an Instagram video for her nearly 9 million followers. “It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy Anniversary @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better.”

Check out the cute video below, which started as a v relatable argument over how to correctly frame a selfie video. (If your man doesn’t know how to fit two people into one selfie frame, he’s not the one for you sis.)

Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better. ?

A post shared by A S H L E Y G R A H A M (@ashleygraham) on

Ervin shared an Instagram post of his own, calling his wife his “forever love” and “daily inspiration”, and okay, I take back what I just said about correct selfie framing, because I need to find myself a man like Justin Ervin. In the photo (which perfectly fit the both of them, might I add), he and Ashley are holding up a sonogram photo of what’s bound to be one of the most beautiful babies of 2019.

To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham These 9 years have played out like a lifetime. I guess it’s because my life really started once you came into it. Now that we’ve made a life together, let’s make a life together. I love you and I love us. All of us…

A post shared by Justin Ervin (@mrjustinervin) on

Graham has been vocal about wanting a family, first mentioning in a 2016 interview with ET that she hoped to have kids in the next few years, and again this past January with Elle magazine, saying, “kids will come when they come.” Put it into the universe and it shall come! (Things I say after watching a 5-minute Youtube conspiracy video on The Secret.) Graham and Ervin met at church 9 years ago and have been going strong ever since, which really makes me reevaluate things. For instance, if I have been doing any one thing aside from breathing consistently over the last 9 years. Whatever!

Congratulations guys! I’m so happy for you and not at all jealous about how your already radiant skin is somehow glowing even more. You have your beautiful family, tomorrow’s pay day, I’ll just buy some more dewy finishing spray!

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: A Freakishly Long Arm

Hello again, friends. In this week’s Photoshop Fail, I did a lot of research. And after last week’s foot disaster (seriously, would LOVE an explanation for that still, though), it got me thinking about how it’s even possible for professional, high-paid photo retouchers to screw up so badly. Like, I guarantee the photo editor for Vogue probably makes more than my entire cost of American private college education in a year! Those are the true professionals, right? They wouldn’t royally screw up, right?

Do you see where I’m going with this?

I started going through old Vogue celeb covers and that’s when I found this gem. This is the cover for March 2017, featuring many a hot celeb, like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Ashley Graham, I’m sure those other women are also famous yet I don’t know their names, etc.

A bunch of gorgeous women on the beach. This is also when Ashley Graham was really making strides by breaking the wall that all models had to be stick thin. Which, like, you would think if Vogue hired her, they knew that. Right?

Vogue, March issue, with all these lovely ladies pic.twitter.com/fOXClR8G30

— Kendall (@KendallJenner) February 8, 2017

Except. They hired a plus-sized model for the cover, yes? They understand that means she is not the same size as the typical teeny model, yes? If you look at the photo, she looks almost the same size as the others, save for her thigh. But that’s not where the photo really went wrong. The true problem is this:

Um. Look at Gigi’s whole arm. In their effort to slim down Ashley Graham—which like, they featured her for diversity and then tried to take it away, nice job, Vogue—they shoved everyone else over. And in the process, made the other women, particularly Gigi, the Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tubeman from Family Guy. Do you remember that episode? It’s those balloon guys that they put outside of car dealerships to draw attention. He looks like this:

By dragging the rest of the girls into Ashley, it hides the part of the image that showed her true width. There was probably more space between her and Kendall originally. They squashed them together to hide Ashley, and then threw Gigi’s arm over it to make it look natural. Resulting in a freakishly long arm. And then now Gigi is in the wrong spot, so they used the next girl’s arm (who is this girl? I need to study up on fashion models) to cover her. All of it is incredibly stupid and pointless and looks terrible. The problem is that the arms were positioned on each other’s bodies in the original photo, so they can’t take them out or move them without losing some of the body.

Here’s how they should have done this edit. The correct thing to do would be to TAKE A BASIC ANATOMY CLASS, OH MY GOD, and then move their arms to a normal length. Then, just copy the patterns of the shorts/swim bottoms to extend them out to cover the missing parts of the bodies where the arms used to be. However, in my expert opinion, the more correct thing to do is to leave women’s bodies alone, especially when YOU ARE HIRING THEM TO SHOW BODY DIVERSITY.

Vogue? Are you telling me it’s more attractive to give women giant noodle arms than it is for them to be of average body type? You hire Ashley for diversity and then are like, “wait, not like that?” SERIOUSLY?

No wonder women feel self-conscious all the time. Here I am walking around with normally portioned arms, not realizing they should be the length of my entire body. What other Photoshop fails would you like me to dissect? Let me know in the comments!

The Met Gala Worst-Dressed List: Does Anyone Understand Camp?

Ah, the Met Gala. Every year, on the first Monday in May, the top names in fashion and entertainment gather to celebrate how rich and hot they are, and it’s always a treat. I mean, it’s technically a fundraiser, but we’re all here for the dresses. Year after year, the world’s best designers give us some serious couture looks based on whatever the theme is, and this year was no different. The thing is, this year’s theme (Camp: Notes on Fashion) was kind of an enigma. What exactly is camp? It’s hard to describe, but it’s basically an art that celebrates all things wild, over the top, ironic, and tacky. No, it doesn’t have anything to do with tie-dye or bonfires. Essentially, the only rule for this year’s red carpet was to not be boring. Sounds simple, but some of the stars had more trouble than you’d think (*cough* Kim Kardashian), and that’s mainly who made the worst end of the list. None of these people looked bad, per se, but the worst dressed mainly just bored us. Sadly, Rihanna was not in attendance, but even she did a better job than some of these snoozes. Here’s how everyone else did, for better or for worse.

Best: Lena Waithe

I came to slay, bitch.

A post shared by Lena Waithe (@lenawaithe) on

If you’re just learning about camp for the first time, the back of Lena Waithe’s blazer is a good place to start. Like so many things in pop culture today, the roots of what we now think of as “camp” can be traced back to black queer and drag culture, starting in the 1960s. Cultural movements grow and shift naturally through time, but it’s important to remember and pay tribute to those who came before us. For this important statement, Lena instantly had one of the best looks of the night.

Worst: Kim Kardashian

Of course baby no. 4 hasn't arrived yet. It’s Met Monday. She’s in NYC. She would be in the hospital. #MetGala (📷: Shutterstock)

A post shared by E! News (@enews) on

Kim is kind of the worst at the Met Gala in general because she always looks hot, but that’s not the point. She never pushes the boundaries. This year, she just walked straight out of her Vogue cover shoot and wore that exact look to the Met Gala. Seriously, just look at this sh*t:

For someone who does the most 364 days out of the year, I’ll never get why Kim chooses this day of all days to do less.

Best: Katy Perry

Katy Perry’s #MetGala look? LIT. 🕯 (📷: Getty Images)

A post shared by E! News (@enews) on

Whether you like Katy Perry or not, when it comes to camp, she understands the assignment. I mean, she’s spent 95% of her career dressed as various types of food, so this girl hasn’t met an over-the-top costume she doesn’t like. Most years at the Met Gala Katy looks like an idiot, but this year looking like an idiot was basically the theme, so she nailed it. She looks like Lumière from Beauty and the Beast had a major glow-up (pardon the pun), and I’m 100% here for it. I’m desperate to know how she went to the bathroom in this dress, or moved at all without impaling anyone, though. Beauty is pain!

Worst: Ashley Graham

For the last time, THE THEME IS CAMP. Do something crazy. The time to come in a Gucci logo dress, lookin’ like your grandma’s strawberry sucking candy, was not today. She looks gorgeous, and her body is obviously to die for, but that’s not the point. Where is the DRAMA? This was a swing and a miss.

Best: Lady Gaga

Please, no photos #metgala

A post shared by Betches Media (@betches) on

Usually Tom Sandoval is the one who takes a party theme the most seriously, but it was all about Gaga at the Met Gala. Honestly, I love all of these outfits, and I especially love the progression from “family dinner with your parents” to “night out with your girlfriends the second your parents drop you off at your friend’s.” My favorite look is probably the first one, because it reminds me of a couture comforter. But I think I’m going to start bringing a portable phone from 1987 everywhere.

Worst: Halsey

We believe, we believe, we believe, we believe that Halsey is meant for E! #MetGala (📷: Shutterstock)

A post shared by E! News (@enews) on

Look, Halsey is gorgeous and so talented, and I don’t hate what she’s wearing—in fact, I could easily see Taylor Swift copying it for the next awards show—but wearing a large skirt does not immediately mean you have successfully done camp. Halsey looks like Jafar put her under his spell, then dressed her. Hourglass sold separately, I assume.

Best: Billy Porter

A post shared by Billy Porter (@theebillyporter) on

Much like when he wore a tuxedo gown to the Oscars this year, Billy Porter proved again that he knows how to make a f*cking statement on a red carpet. I’m sure everyone else is kicking themselves that they didn’t think t0 be carried in by a crew of gorgeous men (me at all times), and the moment only got better when he revealed the huge gold wings on his outfit. Please make sure Billy is on the invite list for every red carpet until the end of time, because he’s the only thing keeping me awake for these things.

Worst: Kris Jenner

Kris, Kris, Kris.Kris Jenner managed to look weird even given this theme, which is kind of impressive. I know we all joke that she works harder than the devil, but nobody was working hard on this outfit. But maybe that was the problem. Was she so tired of everyone calling her the devil so she decided to dress as Glinda the Good Witch? This is truly upsetting. She looks like a cross between the Tooth Fairy and the Fairy Godmother, which I guess would make her the Fairy Godmomager. Also who did her spray tan, Tan Mom?

 Best: Janelle Monáe

When you can’t decide which hat to wear, wear them all @janellemonae #MetGala 📸: Shutterstock

A post shared by The Cut (@thecut) on

Janelle Monáe is a f*cking work of art who can do wrong, and this look is only further proof of that. She completely nailed the theme, and it doesn’t feel like she’s trying nearly as hard as a lot of these stars. It probably helps that this is basically an outfit she would wear to a normal event, but whatever. We stan.

Worst: Gisele Bündchen

A post shared by Fashion Alarm (@alarmfashion) on

Did Gisele Bündchen look stunning at the Met Gala? Of course Gisele Bündchen looked stunning at the Met Gala! That’s like asking if water is wet. But it doesn’t change the fact that I am B-O-R-E-D looking at this dress.From the pleating to the belt, this screams more “mother of the bride” than “Anna Wintour’s guest at the most exclusive event in existence.” Gisele was having a grand old time twirling on the red carpet, but she could’ve twirled while wearing something a lot more exciting! The only good thing about this dress is that it was  made using sustainable methods by Dior, but like, couldn’t they have made Gisele a fun dress sustainably too?

Best: Cardi B

A post shared by The Cut (@thecut) on

Cardi B looked like a period incarnate, but she actually lived up to the theme. She saw the top, went over it, and then back around to the bottom and over the top again. (Sorry I’ll see myself out.) But I really liked the monochromatic look, complete with the headpiece and jewels. I don’t watch Game of Thrones, so correct me if this joke is not accurate, but: she looked like the Red Wedding come to life.

Worst: Hailey Bieber

A post shared by E! News (@enews) on

Where do I start? The Wet Seal reject of a dress? The visible whale tail? The overly aggressive spray tan? Or the fact that even given all this, the whole look still managed to bore me? I will give Hailey one bit of credit, and that is that I am completely in awe of that ponytail. Good for the ponytail. Now just ditch everything else about the look, and then we can talk.

Best: Kacey Musgraves

Is this technically campy? Sure, maybe, I honestly don’t even know anymore and I desperately need to go to sleep, but Kacey looks so goddamn good in this Barbie outfit. She already won the Grammys this year, and if there were awards given out at the Met Gala, she probably would’ve won one of those too. God, she’s so f*cking pretty.
