When news broke on the first day of spring that Serena had given birth to a baby girl, the world suddenly forgot that there were other adorable babies in the world. I mean, fellow tennis player Novak Djokovic and wife Jelena also welcomed a baby girl into the world this weekend and very few people knew or seemed to care.
Well, we do. We’re secretly hoping they’ll be best friends, one day, and also add a few Grand Slam titles to their names, after they meet at primary school and take extra mural tennis lessons, of course.
There are a few other celebrity baby births you may just have forgotten about, in the wake of this exciting news, or maybe you just didn’t hear about it all.
So we’ve rounded up a list of the most adorable celebrity babies born in 2017 (thus far):
On the very first day of the year actress Amy Smart, took to Instagram to announce the birth of her first child with husband Carter Oosterhouse. Amy captioned the image, “It is with great gratitude and pleasure to welcome our little girl Flora to the world. What a blessed way to bring in 2017. Amen and Thank You God for this special new life!” Flora is now 8 months old and just as stunning as her mom.
In, you guessed it, August, Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan, announced that they welcomed their second child into the world.
In a heartwarming Facebook post, the founder and CEO wrote in a letter to his daughter:
“You will be busy when you're older, so I hope you take time to smell all the flowers and put all the leaves you want in your bucket now. I hope you read your favorite Dr. Seuss books so many times you start inventing your own stories about the Vipper of Vipp. I hope you ride the carousel with Max until you've tamed every color horse. I hope you run as many laps around our living room and yard as you want. And then I hope you take a lot of naps. I hope you're a great sleeper. And I hope even in your dreams you can feel how much we love you.”
3. Mateo and Eva
We’ve all seen the adorable posts of Cristiano Ronaldo with his little boy, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. But in June, Ronaldo posted on Instagram that he was “So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of [his] life”, twins, Mateo and Eva.
4. Jack Oscar
Also in June, model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and action star Jason Statham, welcomed their first child with the caption, “Out little man arrived!”
5. Alexander and Ella
Alexander came first, and two minutes later came Ella, when George and Amal Clooney welcomed twins in June. In a hilarious statement to People magazine upon the birth of the twins it was revealed that “Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days”.
We have yet to see any pictures of the gorgeous twins.
6. Pharrel's triplets
Another celebrity couple keeping their babies out of the limelight and keeping the sexes and names of their babies a secret is Pharrel Williams and Helen Lasichanh. The couple welcomed triplets in January and while we don’t know much about them, we’re sure they’re going to be the most stylish little babies, EVER!
7. Sir and Rumi
Speaking of stylish and of course, flawless, we have to mention Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s precious twins, Sir and Rumi.
Obviously the internet hilariously and understandably lost it, once again, with the news of the Queen’s twins.

My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow! I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!
10. William a.k.a Billy
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and wife Molly McNearney, welcomed their second child in April. In an emotional monologue, Kimmel revealed his son, William, or as they affectionately call him, Billy, actually had to have heart surgery.
In July, Jimmy posted on his Instagram that the little guy was doing great, with this adorable picture of a smiling Billy.
