So many new additions in one year! 2021 saw the births of several celebrities’ babies, including some of your favorite stars becoming first-time parents — or in some cases, for the seventh time.
Baby Hartford — whose middle names, Charlie and Rose, were chosen in honor of Beau’s father and Stassi’s grandmothers, respectively — came into the world weighing 7 lbs., 3 oz. and measuring 19 inches long.
“We truly cannot begin to describe the happiness and joy we are feeling at this moment,” the couple said in a statement to People. “It’s something that you hear from all new parents right after birth, but something magical happens … We are feeling so blessed and grateful to have a beautiful and most importantly, healthy baby girl.”
But they’re not the only A-listers to become parents in 2021. Dancing with the Stars pro Witney Carson announced on January 24 the birth of her first child, a baby boy, with husband Carson McAllister on Instagram. She said the birth came “after a really hard 24-hour labor and an unexpected c-section.”
“We are all healthy and well. We are so grateful, and we’ve been soaking up every moment with our perfect angel boy. Thank you for all the prayers!” she added, alongside a black-and-white close-up of her holding the newborn’s hand.
She later revealed that their son, Kevin McAllister, is “named after his grandpa who sent him down to us,” adding that her little one was born on January 3 and weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz. and measured 21 inches long.
Some fans, however, pointed out the tot’s moniker is almost the same as Macaulay Culkin‘s fictional character in the popular Christmas movie Home Alone — Kevin McCallister. “Love the name! Don’t leave him home alone,” one fan mused via social media, while another added, “So cute! Please don’t forget to take him with you when you go on vacation!” and a third chimed in, “Whatever you do, don’t ever leave him home alone.”
Ironically, Macaulay and his girlfriend, Brenda Song, also welcomed their first child together this year, which they announced to Esquire on April 12.
