Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump joined the celebrity moms club when she gave birth to a daughter on July 17.

"This morning @jaredkushner and I welcomed a beautiful and healthy little baby girl into the world," the daughter of The Donald tweeted. "We feel incredibly grateful & blessed. Thank you all for your support and well wishes!"

She later updated fans on the name of her new baby girl.

"Jared and I are having so much fun playing with our daughter! Arabella Rose is beyond adorable," Trump tweeted. "She's truly a blessing."

Like many celebrities, the former model didn't share all the gory details of her birth. However, some celebs aren't shy about putting it all out there, for better or for worse.


Pink and husband Carey Hart welcomed a daughter, Willow Sage, on June 2. The singer named her little bundle of joy after her favorite tree.

"I grew up near one. It's the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it -- no wind, no elements," she said.

However, bringing little Willow into the world wasn't a gentle process '" Pink required a Caesarean section.

"I was really looking forward to the whole rite of passage '" giving birth perfectly present, unmedicated, in the way nature intended." The "Sober" singer said. "She was in the frank breech position, which is head up with her legs up by her head in a pike position. We tried everything to turn her around. Turns out this little girl had other plans '" she is my daughter, after all."

At least she's healthy!

Gisele Bundchen

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is that type of beautiful that just makes her seem like she's perfect in that annoying way. The Brazilian Bundchen even claimed that giving birth to her son with Tom Brady, Benjamin, was perfect too.

"It wasn't painful, not even a little bit,' Bundchen said. "The whole time, my head was so focused -- every contraction, the baby is closer, the baby is closer. So, it wasn't like, 'Oh, what pain.' It was, 'With every contraction, he is getting closer to me.''

She and Brady opted for a home water birth in the couple's Boston apartment -- without meds.

"I wanted to be conscious and present for what was happening," she said. "The second day, I was walking, I was washing dishes, I was making pancakes in the kitchen."

Of course.

Miranda Kerr

Model Miranda Kerr might be a Victoria's Secret Angel like Bundchen, but she isn't holding anything back when it comes to the pain of childbirth.

"I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body," the Angel told InStyle Australia of the birth of her son, Flynn, with Orlando Bloom. "I was looking down on myself -- the pain was so intense."

"I kept thinking, 'How do women do this?' But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined."

Thanks for keeping it real, Miranda.

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson just gave birth to her new son, Bingham Hawn Bellamy, on July 9. However, she wasn't the one who announced it to the world -- her fiance, Muse rocker Matthew Bellamy, did.

"So happy! Just had a baby boy, Bingham 'Bing' Hawn Bellamy. Born 7lb 12oz, on 9th July," Bellamy tweeted.

"Mum and baby are strong and healthy. Mum was a warrior, Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing!"

Good to know, Matthew.
