Vince Vaughn

Wedding Crashers star Vince Vaughn and his wife, Kyla Weber, welcomed their first child, daughter Locklyn Kyla Vaughn, Dec. 18 in Chicago. Shortly after his daughter's birth, the funnyman spoke [6] about first-time daddy nerves.

You feel very grateful that everyone's OK, but there is an intimidation. I didn't want to hurt the little girl. I didn't know what I was doing when it came to changing the diapers; it was a learning curve. So I said to my wife, 'I promise I'll be much more helpful when she can communicate and we can talk and kind of play and do stuff' . . . But it's intimidating at first; there's a learning curve that you go through.

Owen Wilson

Zoolander star Owen Wilson and his girlfriend, Jade Duell, welcomed their first child, a boy named Robert Ford, in Hawaii on Jan. 14. The new dad opened up [7] about the joys of fatherhood.

I was never like somebody who was like, ‘Oh gosh, it’s a little baby! Let me hold it. They’re so fragile, but then when it is your own, all of a sudden you feel a lot more confident. You really do have this bond, this real connection with this thing that a month ago wasn’t even here . . . It is strange. Their little cries are like beautiful music. I haven't dropped him yet," Owen joked.

Neil Patirck Harris and David Burtka

One of our favorite celebrity dads [8], Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka became dads on Oct. 12, 2010. The How I Met Your Mother star, who is set to celebrate his first Father's Day this year, said [9] he's loving fatherhood.

Fatherhood is going good," Neil gushed. "They’re very small right now, so thankfully there have been no urgent care trips or accidental drops,” he laughed. “They’re smiling, and once they start laughing, I am going to be head over heels for these two. Not like I’m already not, but you know. Then I’ll think they will be laughing at my comedy, so I will never leave the house.”

Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon and his wife, Grammy Award-winning singer Mariah Carey, welcomed fraternal twins, Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon, on April 30. Days after their birth, the proud new dad took to Twitter to announce [10] his joy.

I'm in the happiest place I've ever been in my life. I never had more amazing things happening. I am humbled by God's Favor!

Javier Bardem

Actors and newlyweds Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem [11] have remained very tight-lipped about the birth of their son, reportedly named Leo, on Jan. 22. While they've remained mum on the birth details, proud mama Penélope said [12] motherhood is a "revolutionary experience."

Benjamin Millepied

Reports [13] state that ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied recently welcomed his first child, a boy, with fiancée Natalie Portman [14].

The couple met while filming Black Swan, and announced they were engaged and expecting their first child together last December.

Ian Ziering

Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Ian Ziering and wife Erin Ludwig welcomed their first child, daughter Mia Loren, on April 25. Shortly after her birth, the proud new papa wrote [15] on his Facebook page:

Well, it's official, I'm a dad! As I sit holding Mia, Erin sleeps the most beautiful sleep. My thoughts race with visions of a brighter future, only made possible by what happens today . . . or, last night! God bless us all."

Carey Hart

Grammy Award-winning singer Pink and hubby Carey Hart recently welcomed their first child, daughter Willow Sage, on June 2. Just two days after the birth of his daughter, the 35-year-old freestyle motocross motorcycle racer took to Twitter to share [16] his joy.

My wife @Pink owns my heart. And she just gave me my best achievement of my life #WillowSageHart . Medals and flips got nothing on her.

Elton John and David Furnish

Sir Elton John and longtime partner David Furnish became fathers on Christmas Day 2010. Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born in California via a surrogate.

"We are overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment," the proud dads said [17]. "Zachary is healthy and doing really well, and we are very proud and happy parents."
