These are the top celebrity babies of 2015
There are many things that celebrities did this year, but perhaps the most significant achievement for the ones we’ve profiled today is the addition of new members to their families.
Though some sought to keep their family lives under wraps, many have taken to social media to announce the news to their fans.
With increase in technology, some couples opened Instagram accounts for the infants who steadily rose to fame on social media with some even getting endorsed.
Congratulations once again to the couples for their gift of beautiful babies.
Here are the top celebrity babies of 2015:
Diamond Paltnumz and Zari Hassan
Diamond Platnumz became Baba Tiffah after his wife Zari delivered a bouncing baby girl following a much-publicized pregnancy.
They named her Latiffah Abdul, better known as Princess Tiffah.
Numerous fans congratulated the celebrity couple for the addition to the family.
They slated the official unveiling of their daughter at a later date and sponsors came out to support it including NMB Bank.
She is also Msasani City Mall Baby Shop ambassador.
The duo opened an Instagram account for the infant and it has garnered 273 k followers.
Lawrence, who is a cousin of Zari’s ex-husband Ivan Ssemwanga, claimed Diamond is not Princess Tiffah’s biological father.
He further asserted that the information making rounds online is completely false.
“It is not a bad thing (to seek publicity), but you know it should be done in such a truthful manner; not like the one we are seeing and reading – about a guy being so creative that he convinces people to believe his false claims,” vented Diamond.
Crème De la Crème and wife
In April, DJ Crème De La Crème and his lovely wife Denise Njuguna had the best day of their lives as they welcomed the second member of their family, a baby girl whom they named Zawadi.
