Happy Mother’s Day from PeopleWorld to all the mums out there celebrating on this special day. Where would we be without the love, support and even the odd bit of discipline growing up without that special person in our lives that has nurtured us into who we are today? We hope you got your mum something extravagant this year to celebrate!
Much like the rest of us, many of our favourite celebrities since the advent of social media have shared their love and fondness for the matriarchs in their family. From Reese Witherspoon spending mother’s day not only with her own but as a mother to three daughters, to a touching tribute from John Travolta to the late Kelly Preston in memory of the loving mother she was to her three children.
Even those so-called ‘nepo babies’ have championed the importance of their mother’s in their lives, with Maya Hawke for example regularly posting on social media pictures of herself with her mum, Uma Thurman. Or how about the endearing images each year of Kate Hudson with her celebrity mother, Goldie Hawn?
But for a number of people, 2023 marks the very first time that they’ll get to celebrate Mother’s Day, having welcomed their newborns into the world last year. This also includes several celebrities who celebrated the birth of their firstborns last year, and now we get to celebrate another milestone in parenthood - the first Mother’s Day in what we hope will be many for them.
So who from the celebrity world will be celebrating their first Mother’s Day, having welcomed their firstborns into the world after 2022’s edition? Although it may not be Mother's Day in the States, this doesn't mean US celebrities can't celebrate with their UK counterpoarts.
What celebrity mums are celebrating their first Mother’s Day?
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky welcome the birth of their firstborn on May 13 2022 - introducing to the world a beautiful baby boy who before turning one year old has graced the cover of Vogue Magazine. A feat many people much, much, much older than him could only hope to achieve.
Rihanna’s got two milestones to celebrate this year; her first Mother’s Day and the expectancy of her second child, as she revealed her baby bump to the world during her celebrated Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Fresh Meat star Zawe Ashton and her partner Tom Hiddleston surprised the world in October 2022 when they announced the arrival of her firstborn, whose name and gender - like many parents famous or not - they have kept under wraps.
Tom and Zawe are loving being new parents and are filled with joy,” a source Us Weekly after the announcement of the new arrival. “They have been having the struggles of new parents and aren’t sleeping much but are thrilled.”
Love Island star Olivia Bowen and her partner Alex welcome their firstborn, a boy named Abel, back in June of 2022. She explained in an op-ed piece for Silver Cross, however, that she grew impatient awaiting the arrival of her newborn - Abel ended up being two days later than expected, as Olivia admitted she was in 30 hours of labour. We’re sure many other mothers today can appreciate her eagerness!
Geordie Shore OG Charlotte Crosby also welcomed her firstborn in October 2022, giving birth to a baby girl named Alba Jean Ankers. Along with her boyfriend, businessman Jake Ankers, she explained that they chose the unique name as Alba is a Latin female name meaning Dawn, Sunrise and is also the Latin name for Scotland.
Rebel Wilson and her partner Ramona Agruma announced the arrival of their firstborn daughter, through a surrogate, on Instagram in November 2022. Though the Instagram post, Wilson captioned the pictures of herself and the newborn with “beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate. I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!”
