There was a celebrity baby boom in 2011, many of them born to first-time parents. While many expanded their already large families, such as David and Victoria Beckham, or Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, other celebrities found themselves parents for the first time. From happy celebrations to births shrouded in mystery, these celebrities will be celebrating Christmas with baby for the very first time in 2011.
"Baby's first Christmas" came as a two-for-one for Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon, who welcomed twins in April. The children, named Moroccan and Monroe, are the first for the couple, who married in 2008. Mariah lost 70 pounds after giving birth to the twins. All she wants for Christmas is a healthy, happy family!
Party boy Grant had a baby girl in September after having a brief love affair with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong. Though this was an unplanned pregnancy, Grant is reportedly happy about the new bundle of joy, and bought Hong a new house just a mile from his home in England. Here's hoping he has a happy Christmas with the new baby, if he can find time away from filming movies and dating other women.
The "Mad Men" star also gave birth in September. Her pregnancy was one of much speculation, as the actress has yet to reveal who fathered her child. Jones intends to move forward as a single, working mom. The beautiful new mom and baby, Xander, will spend Christmas together for the first time in 2011.
After wrapping up "Lost," actress Evangeline Lilly moved on with her life, filming "Real Steel" and having a baby! Her new son, named Kahekili, with boyfriend Norman Kali was born in May. After spending 30 hours in natural labor before the baby's birth, this Christmas will be a well-earned celebration for the new family.
We all know her as Charlotte York on "Sex and the City," and it seems that this is a case of life imitating art. Davis adopted a baby, by herself, this year. The baby girl, named Gemma, is the first for Davis. She admits raising a baby is hard work, but is grateful for the support she has. Since she has wanted a baby for a long time, it's Christmas come early for Kristin Davis and Gemma.
