Much hype is made in the news around famous baby arrivals, and for new parents-to-be, it can be fun to follow tips from their favourite celebrity, especially if your baby is due around the same time. Following the announcement of the latest royal baby this month, it's been reported that Princess Eugenie and Duchess Meghan shared tips throughout their respective pregnancies
- Meghan already a mum to Archie would have been a great fount of knowledge for Eugenie, giving tips on what to buy.
Inspired by the birth of little August Philip Hawk Brooksbank we've put together some of our top picks for first-time parents Princess Eugenie and Jack, plus two other well-known expecting mums - model Karlie Kloss and conservationist Bindi Irwin.
Are you expecting your first baby this year? Discover our Baby Essentials | Guide for New Parents with tips for everything you need for your new arrival.
Princess Eugenie & Jack Brooksbank
Son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank was born on 9th February 2021 at the famous London Portland hospital, which is steeped in family tradition as Eugenie and her sister Beatrice were also born there over 30 years ago.
Although little August will be raised without an official title, at the time of his birth he was 11th in line to the throne (soon to be succeeded by Meghan and Harry - the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's second baby, due later this year).
He may not officially be a prince, but as an official member of the royal family, it's only right that he wear a crown. This Grey Pima Cotton Babygrow by Kissy Kissy, exclusive to Childrensalon has a cute all-over crown print and as any new parent knows, a baby can never have enough babygrows in the first few months of their life. Taking inspiration from his second cousin George, these adorable Baby Boys Smocked Dungarees by designer Rachel Riley were famously photographed on George during his first-ever tour of Australia and New Zealand. It's important he doesn't forget his roots and after all, his great grandmother is the Queen of the United Kingdom with one of her most famous palaces - Buckingham - in London. What could be more quintessentially London that this iconic red bus? This traditional wooden Personalised London Bus is by designers Dragons of Walton Street who created the nurseries of Princes William and Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie (his aunty and mum). Lastly, spring is coming and little August is bound to have a number of garden parties and engagements to attend as the newest royal in town - this cute Blue Hand-Smocked Buster Suit by British designer Beatrice & George has the royals written all over it (quite literally).
Karlie Kloss & Joshua Kushner
Heading stateside over the pond - although not quite royalty, baby Kushner's uncle-to-be Jared is married to Ivanka Trump, who until recently was part of the first family of the USA. Karlie Kloss is an American supermodel and host of the popular TV show, Project Runway. At just 17 years of age, Vogue Paris magazine named Karlie one of the top 30 models of the 2000s. Karlie is most famous in the modelling world for holding the title of 'Victoria Secret Angel' - the prestige role as model and ambassador for clothing and beauty brand Victoria's Secret. No mini Victoria's Secret Angel's wardrobe (be it girl or boy) would be complete without this adorable White Cotton Babygrow by designer Marie Chantal. In the designer's signature style, it features gold angel wings on the back and is available exclusively online at Childrensalon.
A fashion favourite both on and off the runway is Gucci, the Italian designer synonymous with luxury. This cute White Babysuit Gift Set has three things a new baby needs - a hat, bib and one of a collection of vests. What's more, they proudly display the iconic logo.
Used to rubbing shoulders with the who's who of fashion, Karlie naturally moves in the same circles as Kendall Jenner and sister Kylie. Kylie caused a stir in 2020 when she took daughter Stormi for a walk in a Fendi Brown FF Logo Stroller and it's only right that Karlie sticks to the same standards of style. To match the stroller, we've picked out a cute Beige Quilted Logo Pramsuit to match because a little follower of fashion can never have enough Fendi.
Bindi Irwin & Chandler Powell
Known for being the daughter of one of the world's most famous wildlife experts, Bindi Irwin and her family own the Australia Zoo in Queensland. Following in the footsteps of her dad, Bindi is herself a TV personality, conservationist, zookeeper and actress. Her dad's most notorious accolade is "The Crocodile Hunter" and he loved them so much that when Bindi was born, he named her after his favourite crocodile at the zoo. It seems only right that baby Powell will be an avid lover of crocodiles too - dad-to-be, Chandler Powell is a professional wakeboarder who also works at the zoo, so this cute Sunuva Blue Float Suit (UPF 50+) with crocodile print is the perfect pick for family days out on the Gold Coast. Days spent at the zoo will be hot and humid so this adorable lightweight Green Safari Dungaree Set by Mayoral is ideal for any little explorer.
For nighttime, it's important to keep baby cool and a baby sleep pod is a must-have for any new baby. This jungle print, Cotton Muslin Sleep Bag by aden + anais is made from breathable muslin and is only 1 tog, so it's super lightweight.
Lastly, a little one can never have too many toys to keep them occupied, especially with such busy hands-on parents - this Koala Rattle Toy By Moulin Roty, is suitable from birth with different elements to stimulate baby's senses. What's more, it's a koala which seems fitting for this little Australian.
