The Biggest Births of 2008

2008-12-22 14:28

Which future starlets were born in 2008? We take a look back at which celebrities gave birth this year.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Jennifer Lopez gave birth to twins on 22 February 2008 and named them Emme Maribel and Maximilian David, and kicked off the twins trend in Hollywood. The twins are the first children for Jen and the fourth and fifth for Anthony. Marc and Jennifer are rumoured to be close to divorcing after Jen was spotted at a red carpet event without her wedding ring - let's hope they work it out for the twins' sake! 

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Ever stylish Angelina gave birth to twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline - born into a crazy multi racial family in Nice, France on 12 July 2008. The twins are the fifth and sixth children for Jolie (33) and partner Brad Pitt (44) who are already parents to Maddox (6), Pax (4), Zahara (3), and Shiloh (2). So the only question is – will they be adding to their brood in 2009?

Perhaps 2009 is the year that Jennifer Aniston finaly gets knocked-up. Come on Jen, make us happy!

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
Jess and Cash had their first baby on 7 June this year and named her Honor Marie. We think this is an awesome name! Jessica was recently spotted looking uber hot in a bikini on a beach in Mexico, and she's gone back to work on a new romantic comedy. Jess is said to have spent two hours a day at gym to get her body back in shape.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
While the name is rather interesting, especially if you're living in South Africa, Zuma Nesta Rock, born on 21 August is sure to be just as cute as his older brother Kingston.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman
After a miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy during her marriage to Tom Cruise, Sunday Rose, born 07 July 2008, is a blessing and a miracle. Keith and Nicole named her after the late Sunday Reed, a noted Australian art collector. Nicole didn't sell her baby photos to the media, instead she whipped out a photo while appearing on the Oprah Show. The photo was taken by Keith.

Matthew McConaughey and Camilla Alves
Levi Alves McConaughey was born on 8 July at 6:22 pm. "Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible" Mathew explained how they got the name Levi, "our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible". Who knew Matt was so religious?

Jamie-Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge
And one of the most shocking births of the year, Britney Spears' baby sister, Jamie-Lynn, gives birth to Maddie Briann on 19 June 2008 at the tender age of 17. While her parents were looking after her sister in 2007, it seems Jamie needed to do something to get some attention, bringing more shame to the Spears family name.  

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry
41-year-old Halle gave birth to her first child on 16 March. She is named Nahla Ariela - Nahla means honeybee in Arabic. "For us it was hard to name the most important person in our life until we met her," Berry and Gabriel named Nahla only after they left the hospital.

Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman
The couple gave birth to their first son, Max Liron, on 12 January. Max is a popular name in Hollywood. Christina should have been more creative.

Joel Madden and Nicole Richie
Harlow Winter Kate was born 11 January to proud parents Joel Madden and Nicole Richie. Nicole has since curbed her wild ways, and mellowed after she became a mom. Harlow was also voted the best baby name for 2008. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
