It is increasingly common to hear of couples who had children before marriage or even without ever getting married, and celebrities are no exception. In fact, it has become very common for the occasional celebrity couple to surprise us with the news that they will be parents, when we had not even assimilated the idea that they were together.
Love is not a science and does not come with written rules, and exactly the same thing happens with motherhood. From Adele and Simon Konecki to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, take a look at the celebrity couples who welcomed the stork before their first birthday together.
