The Tesla boss and the singer announced the arrival of a son in May and immediately confused onlookers with his name.

Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith

The Dawson’s Creek actor and the Queen And Slim actress welcomed a daughter in April after tying the knot last year.

The couple have not shared details about their child but Turner-Smith has revealed she gave birth at home following a four-day labour.

She told British Vogue: “We had already decided on a home birth, because of concerns about negative birth outcomes for black women in America – according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk of pregnancy-related deaths is more than three times greater for black women than for white women, pointing, it seems to me, to systemic racism.

“We never imagined that in the coming weeks, hospitals around the country would begin restricting who could be present in the birthing rooms, forcing mothers to deliver without the support person or people of their choice.

“Delivering at home ensured that I had what every single woman deserves to have: full agency in determining my birth support.”

Ashley Graham and Justin Ervin

In January model Ashley Graham confirmed she had given birth to a baby boy and the couple shared the happy news in identical posts on Instagram.

Posting a photo of the newborn on Instagram, she wrote: “And just like that, our hearts exploded into all of eternity and beyond. Welcome to the world you little angel!”

Dewan is already mother to six-year-old daughter Everly, who she shares with her ex-husband Channing Tatum.

Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke 

In September the Gossip Girl and You star, 33, and his singer wife, 36, who is also a doula and supports other women through birth, announced the arrival of their baby son after suffering two miscarriages.

Kirke revealed she gave birth in August in a post on Instagram in which she shared a painting made using the baby’s placenta.
