Hey there, I'm Lauren Bradshaw. 2011 is coming to a close and this year marked a huge celebrity baby boom. We're taking a moment to look back at the newest additions to Hollywood's famous families. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom kicked off the baby blitz in early January, when Miranda gave birth to their adorable son Flynn. Owen Wilson joined Orlando in the first time dad's club in January too with son Robert Ford. Later that month, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem's first child, their son Leo, was born. Penelope bounced back fast, she showed up glowing at the Oscars just one month later. And Christina Applegate rounded out the month with daugther Sadie. It turned out to be the perfect preparation for her role as a mom in her new sitcom Up All Night. In March, fashion guru Rachel Zoe welcomed her first child, baby boy Skylar Morrison. Mariah Carey also became a mom for the first time this year. The singer gave birth to twins Morrocan and Monroe with husband Nick Cannon in April, on the couple's fourth wedding anniversary. May brought out even more famous babies. Alicia Silverstone gave birth to son Bear, David Schwimmer and his wife had daughter Cleo, and Marion Cotillard said hello to son Marcel. Jennifer Connelly's daughter Agnes was born on May 31st and just days later, Pink kicked off the June baby boom with daughter Willow. Natalie Portman was close behind, The Black Swan star and her fiancee, ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied, welcomed their first son, Aleph. We got our first glimpse of him in October and he's a cutie. In July Kate Hudson and Victoria Beckham said hello to their new bundles of joy. Kate and fiance, Matt Bellamy, had baby Bing on July 9th and little Harper Beckham came into the world just one day later. After three boys, Victoria is thrilled to have a little girl in the family and David even tattooed her name on his chest, soon after her arrival. Selma Blair also had her hands full in July with the birth of her son Arthur. Tina Fey added to her growing family this year with daughter Penelope in August. So did Jessica Alba. Jessica's daughter Haven joins three year old big sister Honor at home. Also celebrating an August birthday is Alyssa Milano's son, Milo. We saw some fall babies this year, too. January Jones' son, Xander arrived in September, just one week before the Emmy's. January missed the show, but she and Xander cheered "Mad Men" on from home as it won it's fourth consecutive Emmy. And in October, French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy gave birth to daughter Giulia. Hugh Grant surprised everyone by announcing that he became a dad to a baby girl in October, too, but he's remaining mum on the name. What a year and we're on baby watch for 2012 already. Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Simpson, Hillary Duff, and Maggie Gyllenhaal are all expecting.
