Despite the world’s instability due to the effects of the COVID-19 virus, a few individuals have had the luck of experiencing joy in different forms.
From getting new jobs, to reuniting with loved ones and even welcoming new family members, it is safe to say a few people have had something good to show for the year.
Here is a list of celebrities that crowned their 2021 with the gift of a new born.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, Weighing in 3.385kgs, at 02.15am on August 25th 2021 our bundle of joy landed.

We are indeed blessed,” wrote Daddie Marto.
The couple was unfortunately forced to spend numerous nights with their new born in hospital after he got unwell. Updating their online family of his progress, Daddie Marto revealed that he was completely healed and was safely back home.
“Long live the King. Meet Franklin Rey, the boy y’all have been praying for, pouring your heart to, standing in the gap for. We’ve struggled a bit with the decision but decided that it is only fair to meet he who you have been praying for. Receive gratitude from @manapatau @daddiemarto @koku_lwanga @itsmarcustau for the love and prayers. He is doing great and we thank God and all of you who stood with us! Thank You!!” he wrote.
