2012 saw a bevy of celebrity new moms and babies, and many of those babies were born to proud Latina mamis. Here’s a roundup of some of the best known Latina celebrities to give birth last year.
(SUPER) MODEL MAMIS
Wow, talk about a trifecta of good looking babies. Victoria’s Secret alums (and pals? hmm…) Giselle Bündchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima all welcomed their second babies in 2012. For Bündchen and hubby Tom Brady, it was a girl, Vivian Lake. Ambrosio and longtime companion Jamie Mazur brought home baby boy Noah, and for Lima and NBA star Marko Jarić, daughter Sienna is the new addition.
Um, yeah…Thor? He’s my dad. That’s what little India Rose Hemsworth will get to tell all the kids at the playground. Her parents are actor Chris Hemsworth and his wife, Spanish model and actress Elsa Pataky. And in news of another famous hunk married to a stunning Latina, Matthew McConaughey and Brazilian-born Camila Alves welcomed their third child, son Livingston, in December. Yeah, well my dad plays bongo drums naked!
BORN FROM SCANDAL?
In Mexico, she’s a household name, and not for all the right reasons (fake sex tape scandal, nude photos and relentless paparazzi…). But to little boy Mateo, she’s just Mami. Galilea Montijo, the curvaceous, attention-loving reality TV and former telenovela star and beauty queen, and her husband Fernando Reina welcomed their first baby in March. The tabloids are already predicting divorce… We hope they have better predictions for Gaby Espino and Jencarlos Canela. The celebrity duo, both famous for their telenovela work, brought Nickolas into the world last February. Though Espino and Canela denied for years that they were an item (Espino finally left her husband to be with co-star Canela), little Nicky appears to confirm those rumors!

Puerto Rico-born actress Roselyn Sanchez, best known for her work in the television police drama Without a Trace, has produced clear evidence that she loves being a mom. She and actor husband Eric Winter welcomed Sebella Rose, their first child.
When a character in a telenovela learns she’s pregnant, the news is usually a shock or a scandal. We assume this is not the case for these telenovela starlets who had babies in 2012.
Angelica Vale, one of Mexico’s most beloved stars, and hubby Otto Padron, a former Univision executive, added another Angelica to the family. Angelica IV joins mami, abuela and bisabuela, all of whom are named Angelica. At least she won’t get called by the wrong name at family gatherings!
Former Miss Universe and telenovela sensation Zuleyka Rivera and her NBA star sweetheart, Jose Juan Barrea, welcomed baby boy Sebastian. If he gets his mother’s looks and his dad’s talent with the hoops, this kid will be set for life!
Telenovela star Luz Elena Gonzalez and her husband, businessman Bernardo Martínez added daughter Maria Jose to their family.
LOCA, LOCA, LOCA FOR MILAN
Okay, so he was born in 2013…but how can we leave out one of the entertainment world’s most eagerly-awaited arrivals? Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Barcelona soccer star Gerard Piqué and the one and only Shakira, has already demonstrated a philanthropic tendency…his parents offered a first glimpse of his photos only to those fans who made a donation to UNICEF. Nice move, Milan (and Shakira and Gerard)!
