“The respect and the heritage, and the tribute to one of those beautiful moments where my fiancée and I said 'I love you' for the first time.”
FANTASIA BARRINO AND KENDALL TAYLOR
Fantasia Barrino and her husband Kendall Taylor’s daughter, Keziah London, joined the family on May 23. The singer has two children from previous relationships, and Taylor has a kid, as well.
According to Barrino, her daughter is a fighter as she was born “a little too early.” Taylor and Barrino married in 2015 after dating for three weeks and have talked about their struggles to conceive a few times, so the baby was definitely a blessing.
JASON DERULO AND JENA FRUMES
Jason King is another celebrity baby born On May 8, 2021. According to the singer, his kid is lucky to have “such a strong, caring hero of a mother” in model Jena Frumes.

Weeks after Jupiter’s birth, the “High School Musical” alum said she knew she and her husband would have a cute baby, but she wasn’t expecting how beautiful Jupiter would be.
MACAULAY CULKIN AND BRENDA SONG
Former child actors Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin are keeping most details of their celebrity baby (and their relationship) away from the spotlight.
Their son, Dakota Song Culkin, was born on April 5 in Los Angeles. The baby was named after Culkin’s late sister, who passed away at 29 years old in 2008.
BINDI IRWIN AND CHANDLER POWELL
