Actors Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano are very private about their family life. It was revealed that the couple welcomed their second child together after Kazan spilled the beans in an appearance on Today, saying she had given birth “three weeks ago.” That means she likely gave birth in October but we don’t have any other info about the couple’s growing family.

Christina Perri and Paul Costabile

“Ozzie is here! Oscar Bennett Goldsmith arrived a little late but with much aplomb (and an easier/speedier delivery than his big brother, much to the delight of his parents),” the pair shared on social media alongside black and white photos of their newborn. “Every adage is true: our hearts have doubled in size and the immediacy of the love is astounding, the caption continued. “He is beyond words and we are so grateful for our family of four!”
Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane
The Bachelor alum and country musician welcomed their second child on October 16, the two shared via social media two days later.

This celebrity couple gave birth to their second child on October 13. “Please give a warm welcome to the little lady that has completed our family and stolen all of our hearts. Andersen Lee Annable, but we call her Andi ????,” Odette shared via Instagram on October 17. “If you were wondering, yes, Charlie is obsessed and yes, she thinks she is only HER baby ;).”
John-David and Abbie Duggar

Nick Cannon and Brittany Bell
Cannon announced on September 30 the birth of his tenth child, his third with Bell. “She has taught me so much about parenting, psychology, spirituality, love, and just life in general,” Cannon said of Bell’s strength on Instagram. “Probably the most difficult labor and delivery I have ever witnessed! 48 hours of excruciating pain and life-risking danger to welcome 10 pounds of Love and joy named RISE MESSIAH CANNON.❤️???????? Thank you Brittany for my fellow little Libra! I love you and our Incredible Family!”
Hilaria and Alec Baldwin
The seventh baby for Hilaria and the eighth for Alec, Ilaria Catalina Irena was born on September 22.

Much love to you all. We are so happy to celebrate this wonderful news with you✨.”

God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an Angel here on earth. I vow to protect, provide, guide, and love this child to the best of my abilities,” he wrote on Instagram.

Nessa Diab and Colin Kaepernick
“I thought long and hard about sharing our life-changing news today.,” Diab shared on social media on August 28. “I decided to do so because today is the first day in a few weeks where I stepped out for work with a new life title – MOM! Colin and I welcomed our amazing baby to the world a few weeks ago and we are over the moon with our growing family.”
The celebrity couple has yet to reveal the name or any details at all about their baby.
Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato
“From love comes life, light, and her… our baby, Cielo Yoli Rose Bublé. You finally arrived to our lives with your 3,8 kg!!! Thanks [sic] God for this infinite blessing, we love you!!

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
On August 5, a rep for Khloe Kardashian informed PEOPLE how Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, who broke up in January, welcomed their second baby together via surrogate. “Khloé is on cloud nine. Getting a sibling for True has been such a journey. She is very excited to be a mom again,” the insider said at the time. “She really wanted a baby boy.”
The celebrity has yet to reveal her baby boy’s name.
Bre Tiesi and Nick Cannon

Misty Copeland and Olu Evans

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner

“Our journey has also been marked by the privilege to pursue different paths to grow our family. Specifically, our remarkable surrogate (an angel-on-earth) who carried our precious girl and delivered her into our arms; an other-worldly generosity of spirit, body, and kindness that can never be repaid,” she also wrote. “Ella and Louisa ???? Rainbow babies. Rainbow sisters.”

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy chose the strange name Bingham for their son who goes by Bing for short. The only reference we know for the name is the late crooner Bing Crosby. Bingham is a British surname-name that means “homestead hollow.” As in, a property near a hollow. This name has never been widely popular in the US, but that could surely change!
Steven Spielberg chose the name Destry for his daughter born in 1996. It’s a gender-neutral name that’s of French origins and means “warhorse.” Destry was once popular in the 1960s for baby boys thanks to a TV western series that aired at the time. Since then, the name has not appeared on the top 1000 baby names list. It’s one of the celebrity baby names that’s poised for a comeback!
Moms are following Reese Witherspoon‘s lead after she named her son Tennessee James after the iconic playwright Tennessee Williams. Tennessee, the state, gets its name from a Cherokee town that means “meeting place.” An evocative choice for sure, we find Tennessee energetic and enduring.
Forest Whitaker is a fearless baby-namer! He has a son named Ocean and a daughter named Sonnet. We think he’s got a talent for discovering amazing words to turn into names. Sonnet comes from Italian roots that mean “little song.” We think this name is perfect for poetry-loving parents who want to turn to prose for inspiration.
Ocean King PenaVega is the son of actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega. Ocean is a delightful natural, water name that could bring a little brightness to your child’s moniker. Ocean has yet to become as widespread as similar names Brooke and River, but we think it will be very trendy soon enough. This marks the second time we’ve brought up the name Ocean on this list which makes it one of the truly trendy celebrity baby names today.
Memphis has Greek and Coptic origins that mean “enduring” and “beautiful.” Memphis is a much more common appellation for boys than girls, but it was given to at least one notable celebrity child. Bono and Ali Hewson chose the name Memphis Eve Sunny Day Hewson after her birth in 1991. Memphis makes the top 1000 most popular names for boys but not girls today.
As promised, Brad and Angelina’s baby’s name, Shiloh, makes the list. This attractive Hebrew name means “tranquil.” The name was virtually unheard of in the US until the celebrity couple helped garner attention for it. Today, Shiloh is a top 500 name which makes it one of the most popular celebrity baby names for everyday parents.
Suri, a once unknown, exotic appellation, made headlines after it was chosen by Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise for their daughter in 2007. Popular in a number of naming traditions, Suri means “the sun” in Sanskrit, “rose” in Persian. Most notably, it’s a form of the Hebrew name Sara which means “princess.”
Esmeralda has been climbing the top 1000 list since the 1950s and it enjoyed its most popular year ever in the US last year. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling named their first daughter Esmeralda. The name is popular with Hispanic parents and non-Spanish speakers alike. The name has Spanish and Portuguese origins meaning “emerald.”
Robert Downey, Jr., and Susan Downey chose the name Exton for their baby boy. Exton has English and Celtic origins and means “town on the River Exe” or simply “near the water.” Exton is a highly unusual pick and not one of the most celebrity baby names on this list. We hope that changes because Exton is a very handsome option.
We turn to Kate Winslet for the first time, but not the last, as she chose Blaze as a middle name for her son. Actor Jennifer Gareis and Bobby Ghassemieh chose it as the first name for their son born in 2010. Blaze is given about twenty times more often to baby boys than girls, but it is still a unisex option. Blaze means “fire” and we expect to light a fire to the top 1000 baby names in the US in coming years!
Titan has emerged as a top 1000 baby name over the last several years. Singer Kelly Rowland & Tim Weatherspoon named one of their sons Titan Jewell after his birth in 2014. Titan has roots in Greek mythology as immortal giants called Titans. Titan means “defender.” It’s one of the celebrity baby names that was already trending but will likely continue to grow in popularity thanks to Rowland.
Nicole Richie and another Joel Madden named their son Sparrow James Midnight. However, they are not the only celebs to choose it. Singer Tony Lucca named his daughter Sparrow Jane. We love a good bird baby name so this one is most welcome on the list. This name is not remotely popular in the US today, which means it’s still one of the celebrity baby names that’s obscure.
We look to Busy Philipps for the first time on this list for inspiration as she has named her daughter Cricket Pearl. Cricket is a distinct nature baby name that parents have not fully adopted yet, but that could certainly change in the coming years. We think this appellation would be a winner for a little boy or a little girl.
Son of director Robert Rodriguez, Rogue Rodriquez, has one of the most unique celebrity baby names. Rogue, a character from X-Men, proves a great name that means “rascal.” Rogue will not be for everyone, as evident in the US top 1000 baby names in which this name has never ranked.
Bear debuted in the US top 1000 for the first time last year. However, it only barely made it onto the list. That means there is still plenty of room for Bear to grow. Bear typically goes to little boys as it did for Alicia Silverstone‘s son Bear Blu Jarecki and Kate Winslet‘s Bear Blaze Winslet.
Say “Hello” to Busy again! Busy Philipps named her other baby Birdie (after First Lady Lady Bird Johnson), as did soap star Maura West. Birdie was last popular as a given name in the US in 1948. This name has typically gone to baby girls but we think it works as a unisex baby name owing to its natural meaning. We would love for this adorable name to make comeback.
Blue is a popular unisex baby name among many celebrity parents. Blue Ivy is of course the name of Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s talented daughter. Blue is a color name that is often used as a middle name as well. Adele‘s middle name is Blue. Elijah Blue Allman is the son of Cher. Needless to say, this name is wildly popular among celebs but has not completely caught on with the rest of the population.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis caused a splash when they named their now-grown firstborn after novelist Rumer Godden. Rumer Glenn Willis might have received the attractive name in 1988 but few others can say the same. This is still one of the very rare celebrity baby names. Rumer comes from an English surname that means “fame.”
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied named their son Aleph. The ancient name refers to the origins of the universe in the Kabbalah. It also refers to the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Aleph has Hebrew origins and means “chief” or “number one.” It’s one of the rare celebrity baby names in the US.
Sunday is one of those celebrity baby names that sounds attractively vintage yet completely approachable. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban thought so as they named their daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban for their baby girl born in 2008. Mike Myers followed suit 6 years later giving the name to one of his daughters.
Son of actor Jason Lee received the name Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee after his birth in 2003. Pilot is an occupational name for an individual who takes the steering wheel. Pilot works well as a baby name for boys and girls and would be an offbeat option for adventurous parents. Pilot is definitely one of the most colorful celebrity baby names on this list.
Lyra is a musical baby name that comes from Greek and means “lyre.” It was a very appropriate choice for Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn (as well as Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum). Lyra has long been a popular baby name for girls in England, and it finally debuted in the top 1000 here in the US in 2015. Sheeran chose the middle name Antarctica, but you most certainly do not.
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden turned heads after they named their daughter Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden after her birth in 2020. This most novel of celebrity baby names comes from Latin origins and means “root.” Raddix seems “rad” for both boys and girls to us!
Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund announced the birth of their son early this year. They chose the name Rhodes Robert and we think Rhodes was a wise choice. Rhodes is a posh baby name with Greek origins that means “where roses grow.” It has never appeared in the US top 1000 most popular baby names, making it a distinct option!
