Celeb babies that hatched in 2017

At the start of the year, we came up with a list of celeb babies due to hatch in 2017, but boy, were we surprised by the bumper crop of children that were born this year.

Our list (which is by no means exhaustive), consists of first-time parents such as Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming, along with Kim Tae Hee and Rain, and parents who expanded their brood, such as Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu, along with Pace Wu and Ji Xiaobo.

There were also babies we didn’t expect at all – Qin Shupei and Edison Chen had their first daughter together and only confirmed the news after months of radio silence, and Mike He gave his fans a double surprise when he announced in June that not only is he married, but also has a 4-month-old daughter.

For all the big baby news you might have missed this year, along with whose social media platforms you might want to keep an eye on for adorable baby updates, click on for more.

Birth date: January 6
Baby Number: One

One of the first few babies to be welcomed this year, celeb couple Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo were extremely tight-lipped about their bun in the oven, keeping her due date and the baby’s gender a secret throughout Ruby’s pregnancy.

Till date, the pair has not revealed their daughter’s name and refers to her as ‘Little Angel’ to the media instead. They’ve also let on that Ruby will play the good cop at home, while Wallace will be in charge of disciplining their little girl.

They’ve also shared that they’re hoping for baby number two.

Local actress Yvonne Lim also started off 2017 on a high note as she delivered her second child, a daughter, in Taiwan. The couple planned for their baby’s delivery after consulting with their doctor, and decided to name her Alexa to keep to the theme of their children having names starting with the letter A.

Fellow actresses Zoe Tay and Hong Hui Fang flew in to Taiwan to give Yvonne their support, and the actresses, along with their other pals, have shuttled between Taiwan and Singapore to pay Yvonne visits from time to time. #friendshipgoals

Baby Number: One

What is it with celebs and these adorable nicknames for their children? After ‘Little Angel’ (Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo’s little one), Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming revealed that their bundle of joy is nicknamed ‘Little Sponge’.

The little boy, who was discharged with his mum a mere two days after greeting the world for the first time, has also been shielded by his famous parents from the public eye – alas, eagle-eyed passers-by have spotted the family on at least one occasion, and Xiaoming blew up on social media after paparazzi snapped shots of them – in particular, their then-10-month-old son, while at the airport.

Angelababy has also shared that she wishes to expand her brood, but shared that it might happen a few years down the road as she wishes to “rest for a while” before that happens.

Birth date: February 1
Baby Number: Two

Taiwanese actress Sonia Sui welcomed her second child, a daughter, in February this year. Lucy and her elder brother, Max, looked so alike in her photos that netizens suggested that the pair looked like twins.

However, as the little ones have grown older, they’ve started to look distinctly different from each other, and we love how adorable their sibling interactions – including Max stealing his sister’s first kiss – are.

Birth date: Believed to be in February
Baby Number: One

Wait, what? Mike He dropped a double bombshell on his fans in June when he announced that he was married with a 4-month-old daughter.

Uploading a snap of his daughter, Meibao, along with his personal personal identification documents, he shared that it was a good day “so we registered our marriage (since) the wind and rain can’t stand in our way!”

He is understood to have tied the knot with his non-celebrity girlfriend, who is also his first love. Also, we love their sense of humour, as Meibao donned a onesie that read “My dad is super handsome”.

Birth date: Believed to be in mid-March
Baby Number: One and two

Hong Kong actress Charlie Young welcomed not one, but two babies this year as she gave birth to twins in March.

She only posted about the good news in late April, sharing a snap of her twin boys in their cribs with the caption “My dear babies, thank you, for entering our lives, and letting us experience a different type of love. Daddy and mummy welcomed you both with a thankful heart. We promised that we will love the two of you with all our hearts, and hope that you guys can grow up safely and healthily, surrounded by love and care”.

Aloysius and Ignatius have been kept largely out of the media eye, as Charlie, along with her family and friends, have kept mum about the little boys.

Baby Number: One

Ella announced in October last year that she was pregnant, and documented her pregnancy journey on her social media platforms. On April 12, her label, HIM Entertainment confirmed that she had given birth after “Ella has delivered!” started trending on Weibo.

She has shared many snaps of her adorable son, Daniel, on her social media platforms, and has been open about her fears of being a first-time mother. With her wishing her son to “grow up into a healthy and happy adult,” he might have a playmate next year as the S.H.E member has declared her intent to add on to the brood next year.

This year was the second time Joanne Peh walked the Star Awards red carpet heavily pregnant – and can we just say, she rocked her baby bump just as well as her first time.

Shortly after, the celeb couple welcomed their second child, a boy, on April 21, who, like his older sister, is only known by a nickname (Qi Didi). We haven’t seen any snaps of Baby Qi and Qi Didi having playdates just yet, but we can’t wait for those once the little boy grows up a little more.

Baby Number: One

Well, we can’t say we didn’t see this one coming. Moon Hee Jun announced that he would be marrying Crayon Pop’s Soyul in a fancafe post last year, and while there were numerous rumours of the pair having a shotgun wedding, the pair denied the claims.

They got married in February this year, and three months later, confirmed that Soyul would be giving birth to their first child in the very week the announcement was made. Their baby was born on May 12, and Soyul has since bowed out of the spotlight and is spending her time looking after their bundle of joy.

Birth date: Believed to be in May
Baby Number: One

It was a classic case of did they, or did they not with Edison Chen and Qin Shupei, who had pregnancy rumours surround them for months without any confirmation or denial from either of them.

After months of wondering, Edison quietly confirmed the arrival of his daughter, believed to be named Alaia, via his social media platforms.

He has since become much more open with sharing the happy news, as Shupei has uploaded a snap of him hugging Alaia on her social media page, which has led many to believe that Edison has bid farewell to his days of being a bad boy as he fully embraces fatherhood.

Birth date: June 5
Baby Number: One

Love 97.2 radio DJ Leelian Chua announced in December last year that she had tied the knot with her beau, only known to us as Mr. Lee, after dating for under a year and that she was three months pregnant.

She didn’t have the smoothest pregnancy journey, as she had “no appetite due to gastric pains, felt lethargic in the day and was unable to sleep well at night” during her first trimester.

She later revealed that the pregnancy was unplanned, but it looks like motherhood fits her to a tee as she’s clearly smitten with her little boy. Her regular updates of him on her Facebook page are absolutely adorable, and we’ll probably never tire of cooing over them.

Speculation was rife that Hannah had given birth in June, but this celeb couple decided to keep things hush hush for a week before Jay uploaded a picture of his wife and their two children on Facebook, confirming that they had welcomed their second child to the world.

The little boy, named Romeo, has had his face exposed to the public after snaps of the family on a day out together were circulated online and he is said to look like his father, with beautiful skin just like his mum.

The parents have remained fiercely protective of their children and have refrained from posting snaps of their kids’ faces, choosing instead to only show their side or back profiles.

Birth date: Believed to be in late June
Baby Number: Two for Harlem, One for Jinny

Harlem posted one of the most surprising baby announcements this year with his hilarious snap of himself bundled up like a newborn posted on his Facebook page. “[Jinny’s] given birth to a baby! [The baby] looks so much like his dad! Look at their tiny feet, it’s too cute!,” the 55-year-old wrote.

While the baby’s feet might have been for real, Harlem edited his face onto the snap of what was supposed to be the baby’s face, even sucking his thumb to complete the look. His manager declined to reveal more details with regards to the baby’s gender and birth date.

They were previously rumoured to have been expecting a daughter, although these rumours have neither been confirmed nor denied by him or his management.

Harlem was previously married to Taiwanese actress-singer Annie Yi, with whom he has a 15-year-old son, Harrison Yu.

Birth date: June 22
Baby Number: Three

Pace Wu welcomed her third child with her billionaire fiancé, an adorable baby boy named Hudson. This pregnancy is said to have been the most difficult for the 38-year-old, who experienced serious uterine contractions and had to be confined to her bed during the pregnancy. She also consumed medicines believed to stabilise the pregnancy thrice.

She posted a photo of Hudson on her Instagram to announce the good news, and has previously shared that she intends to have five children in total.

Despite being with her fiancé for years, the pair has yet to tie the knot, a decision that has raised eyebrows. They first welcomed a daughter, Hilary, in 2014, followed by a son, Hans, in 2015.

Shaun Chen and Celine Chin officially expanded their family this July with the arrival of their second daughter, Neia. As with her first child, Nellie, Celine gave birth in her hometown, Alor Setar, and had Shaun by her side to cheer her on during the delivery process.

The proud parents post frequent updates of their daughters on their respective social media pages, and we’re seeing the growing similarity between the two girls.

We also asked if Shaun will be aiming for baby number three, to which he would only say that they would let “nature take its course”.

Aaron Kwok has been known to keep his personal life under wraps – well, as under wraps as a Heavenly King’s personal life can remain under the ever-watchful eye of the public, anyway. He first surprised fans in April with his wedding to his model girlfriend, and pregnancy rumours started circulating soon after.

The veil of secrecy was lifted when he confirmed that he welcomed his first child on September 22, and shared more about the arrival of his bundle of joy with the media. Nicknamed ‘Little Princess’, he shared that her “birth felt very magical, like my life had changed.”

Local singers Tay Kewei and Alfred Sim expanded their family this year with the arrival of Shen Mo. With the baby’s original due date estimated to be September 23, the parents chuckled that they tried to coax their little one into staying in Kewei’s tummy for a few more days so that he’d have the same birthday as Andy Lau – and it worked.

Since then, we’ve had frequent peeks into the new parents’ lives with a plus one in their life, which make us positively melt every time we see that little one smile. So. Cute.

Birth date: October 11

First-time parents Janet Hsieh and George Young are known for their unique sense of humour, with the pair often poking fun at each other and themselves on social media. Janet, who was 41 weeks pregnant when she finally popped, was in labour for 28 hours and gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the wee hours of October 11.

Since then, the couple has shared numerous shots of Egan on their respective social media platforms, along with snippets about their lives as new parents. While motherhood has not been completely smooth-sailing for Janet, she has been very open about the ups and downs of her journey, which has led many other mothers to emphasise and offer words of support as well.

Myolie Wu and her businessman then-boyfriend tied the knot in December 2015 after dating for a year, which sparked numerous questions on when they’d be having a baby together. On Mother’s Day this year, she announced the good news that they were expecting their first child, which led to an outpouring of congratulations from fans all over the world.

Prior to giving birth, she confirmed that she was expecting a boy, and gave birth on October 13. She celebrated her 38th birthday during her confinement period, and her clique of girl pals went over to her place to celebrate the big day as she could not leave the house – the cutest part is, baby Brendan was part of the photos, too.

Rain and Kim Tae Hee tied the knot in January this year, and announced in May that they were expecting their first child together. There was much speculation about the A-listers’ unborn baby at the time, and the parents stepped up to clarify that what mattered the most to them was their child’s health, rather than gender.

Rain then confirmed the birth of their daughter on October 25, when he uploaded a photo of baby socks on his personal Instagram account, saying that they will “raise her well to be a child that will help the world”.

The new dad is clearly smitten with the princess in his life, as he’s gushed about her while on television programmes, saying that she “bears much resemblance to her mother”.

Birth date: November 17
Baby Number: One

Kang Gary seems to be one for surprises, as he made a shocking announcement this April that he was married. He didn’t reveal anything about his wife, except that he “signed an agreement that will last for a thousand years with the one I love”.

A few months later, he surprised his fans once again with his announcement that he had welcomed Gary Junior into the world, and shared a photo of a baby’s feet to accompany his post. This has led some to believe that he had a shotgun wedding back in April, unless Gary’s bundle of joy was delivered prematurely.
