Celebrity Moms Who Celebrated Their First Mother's Day
These super stars just added the title of 'mom' to their long lists of accomplishments. See which new celebrity mamas celebrated their first Mother's Day on May 14
Mother's Day weekend was double the fun for Rihanna as the singer was also celebrating her son's first birthday.
She and boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, kicked off the festivities by confirming their little boy's name — RZA Athelson Mayers — after 11 months of staying mum.
The billionaire beauty mogul and her beau welcomed their son on May 13 last year, and to honor his special day, A$AP released some behind-the-scenes pics of their fairytale life at home.
Little RZA can be seen crawling while at the beach with his parents in one image, rocking some Dior sunglasses in another and giggling while bouncing in his dad's arms in a video.
Riri is currently pregnant with their second baby.
The heiress and media mogul surprised everyone when she and husband Carter Reum announced the arrival of her baby boy, Phoenix Barron Hilton Reum in January.
"It's always been my dream to be a mother and I'm so happy that Carter and I found each other," the new mom told PEOPLE. "We are so excited to start our family together and our hearts are exploding with love for our baby boy."
For Mother's Day, the first time mommy wrote a lengthy, heartwarming caption under a carousel of pictures of her adorable baby boy.
"Being a mom is the most incredible experience I have ever had. It's a love that cannot be put into words, a feeling that I never knew existed until I held my little prince in my arms. Watching him grow and learn every single day brings me so much happiness and fills my heart with so much love.🥰 " she wrote in part.
Rumer Willis and her partner Derek Richard Thomas welcomed their baby girl at home on April 18.
"✨ Louetta Isley Thomas Willis ✨ You are pure magic 🌱 Born at home on Tuesday April 18th," the proud parents wrote in an Instagram post showing off their sleeping baby. "You are more than we ever dreamed of ✨."
Mom, Demi Moore and Rumer's sisters Tallulah and Scout as well as stepmom, Emma Heming Willis, immediately hopped in the comment section to shower the little one with love.
To celebrate Mother's Day, Rumer shared some heartwarming pics of her newborn who — fans quickly noticed — resembles her legendary grandpa, Bruce Willis.
"I have waited and dreamed of you my whole life. You are more than I could have ever imagined. You have changed my life in the most profound way," she wrote.
"It is the privilege and honor of my life to be your Mother and I will do everything and anything for you always. I hope you never stop wanting to sleep next to me or take baths with me."
Kaley Cuoco has been sharing her joy about first-time motherhood with the world and Mother's Day was no different.
The Big Bang Theory actress posted an ultra-adrorable video of her baby girl to her Instagram Stories on the special day.
"Good morning! Hello!" Cuoco could be heard cooing.
"Did you make me a mommy? Is it Mommy's Day?" Cuoco exclaimed, as Matilda flashed an enormous toothless smile. "Thank you for making me a mommy! I love you!"
Cuoco and her boyfriend, Ozark actor Tom Pelphrey, welcomed their daughter on March 30 and shared the news on Instagram.
"Introducing, Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey, the new light of our lives!" Cuoco wrote. "We are overjoyed and grateful for this little miracle 💓."
Dancing with the Stars pros Jenna Johnson and Valentin Chmerkovskiy waited a month to share baby Rome's face with the world, and (surprise!) he's adorable.
"Cannot believe it's been 4 weeks of being completely infatuated with you. Thank you for bursting my heart wide open and showing me what unconditional love is," Johnson captioned an adorable photo of the newborn sleeping.
For Mother's Day, the 28-year-old dancer shared some sweet pics of her cuddling with the cute tot.
"My first Mother's Day ✨Didn't know how emotional I would be all day reflecting on my 4 months of being a mother… it's been the most fulfilling, hardest, and joy filled experiences, " she wrote.
"And with it comes the most rewarding title I have the honor of wearing. I never knew love like this. I never knew you could survive with such little sleep. I never knew that this tiny being would shatter my heart into a billion pieces. Everyday feels like a gift and a dream come true all at once."
It's double the fun for Hilary Swank who welcomed twins just in time for Easter celebrations this year.
"It wasn't easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. 👼🏼🤍👼🏼," the Alaska Daily star wrote under a sweet photo of her holding her newborn babies on each shoulder.
"Happy Easter! 🐣🐣," she added. "Posting from pure Heaven. 🙌🏽."
Swank first announced she and husband Philip Schneider were expecting back in October of 2022.
"This is something that I've been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I'm gonna be a mom," she said while on Good Morning America. "And not just of one, but of two. I can't believe it."
Kelly Osbourne's first Mother's Day was all about reflecting. The 38-year-old — who welcomed her baby boy, Sidney with boyfriend, Sid Wilson at the end of 2022 — paid homage to her loving mother, Sharon Osbourne.
"To say I love my Mother is an understatement!!! ❤️" she began. "Thank you Mumma for trenching me what love really means and for building the foundation that has allowed me to follow in your footsteps and be the best mum I can be. You are a Queen 👸."
Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson welcomed their son, Leodis "Leo" Andrellton Jackson on Feb. 25, 2023. Though the new mama quickly realized parenting is no joke, it's still "the greatest gig of all."
"Learning how to balance it all and looking forward to discovering this new person I am becoming. I will never be the same again, but if you thought I was a bad mama jamma before, you can't imagine the greater purpose my son has given my life!" she wrote under an Instagram carousel that showcased her on a stroll with her newborn.
On Mother's Day, the multi-hyphenate proudly boasted her new title as mommy by posting a series of pictures from a glamorous photoshoot.
"Happy Mother's Day, to a MUVAAAAA," she wrote under a carousel featuring her newborn.
The journey to motherhood wasn't easy for Adrienne Bailon who —along with husband, gospel singer, Israel Houghton — endured eight failed in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles and a miscarriage, before welcoming little Ever James Houghton in August 2022 via surrogacy.
The actress, singer and TV host was able to stay mum on the subject, a feat that surprised even her closest family members.
"I got to be honest, even the process of surrogacy can be quite nerve-wracking. Somebody else has your child with them. We call it extreme babysitting for nine months. It can cause you to be really anxious," she told PEOPLE.
All that angst is far behind the 39-year-old E! News host as she has fully embraced her new role as a mother. "Today was an answered prayer 🤍," she wrote under a series of pics she posted in honor of Mother's Day.
Gina Rodriguez and husband Joe LoCicero welcomed their bundle of joy in March 2023.
The Jane the Virgin star first announced she was expecting while celebrating her birthday back in July 2022.
She recently gave fans a sneak peek of the little one while promoting a new episode of her show, Not Dead Yet.
"My three favs, my baby Charlie, Not Dead Yet (NEW EPISODE TONIGHT with the great Paula Pell) and getting back to dancing (you are incredible Sasha Farber🕺🏽💃🏽 and yes, I am breastfeeding while ballroom)," she proudly wrote.
Kelly Mi Li
The Bling Empire star, film producer and entrepreneur announced she was expecting her first baby with her boyfriend, William Ma, in November 2022.
The couple welcomed daughter Mili Ma on Sunday, Apr. 9, 2023 shortly after midnight — making their baby girl an Easter baby.
"William and I are incredibly grateful to have gone through this journey of pregnancy with the love and support from all of our friends and family, and Dr. Meschter and her staff at Cedars Sinai," the dotting mom told PEOPLE.
For Mother's Day, Mi Li showcased the generations of women in her family — with baby Mili peacefully cradled in her great-grandmothers arms, while Kelly and her mother look on.
"From the four generations of women in our family, we want to wish all the wonderful and amazing moms out there a happy Mother's Day! 💐" she wrote.
She continued: "Being a new mom has given me an eye opening perspective of the joys and challenges of motherhood. I hope I can inspire in Mili, the resilience and strength I've learned from my mom, who raised me by herself, in a country she knew very little about. The sacrifices and hardships she endured gave me the opportunities for me to be who I am today. I can never thank her enough, nor repay that unconditional love, I can only try to pass it on."
LaNisha Cole was surrounded by love on her first Mother's Day. The model and documentary filmmaker who shares eight-month-old daughter Onyx Ice with Nick Cannon received a touching tribute from her current boyfriend Brian Paul Kuba.
"For the person that makes me smile 😊 the most…Happy Mother's Day, not every journey is easy and it takes time to unfold; not a regular 🎈Mother's Day also .. Onyx turns 8 months old," Kuba wrote. "We're both so incredibly proud of you, and it's so amazing to witness you grow together as one…a family."
Cole also posted a video of Kuba cradling baby Onyx to commemorate the special day writing, "Going into my first official Mother's Day weekend feeling beyond blessed to have my two loves by my side. I give thanks every day for my life ❤️🙌🏾 I'm incredibly grateful."
