Keira Knightley is a mom!

The Imitation Game actress and her husband, musician James Righton, welcomed their first child, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.

Although PEOPLE confirmed her pregnancy in December, the mom-to-be, 30, kept mum on the news, and let her baby belly speak for itself in the weeks leading up to award season.

But after stepping out several times in gowns that kept her bump under wraps, Knightley — who later joked her ‘waist had disappeared‘ — opened up about the perks of pregnancy while walking the Golden Globes red carpet in January.

“Luckily, I don’t have lipstick. I only have nuts in here. It’s the wonderful thing about being pregnant. You just need to make sure you have snacks. So this is a snack bag,” she told Entertainment Tonight of her clutch.

Hoppy birthday, John and Michael!

Actress Sherri Saum and her husband Kamar de los Reyes celebrated a major milestone in their twins’ lives — their first birthday! — with a frog-themed party at their Hollywood-area home on Saturday, May 16.

After receiving invites from EchoAge, guests — including The Fosters cast — showed up at the backyard bash, which Good Carma Studio and Laura Stewart Design had transformed into a party space inspired by the boys’ favorite cartoon, Atención Atención.

In between playing games and posing for pictures, guests noshed on a barbecue spread of salads, mac & cheese and chicken fingers. Trays filled with nutritional chocolate shakes from Usana were also passed around to the pint-sized crowd, while the adults sipped on La Croix‘s lemon, lime and passion fruit sparkling water.

Before heading home with treat bags filled with goodies from Mabel’s Labels, Little Green and Soothie Suckers, everyone indulged in Polkatots‘s dessert bar, made up of caramel apples, one-shaped cookies and a vanilla and chocolate frog cupcake cake.

The Fosters returns June 8 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey is expecting a baby daughter this summer, and she shared the good news in a total girl power move: by penning a feminist essay.

Headey, 41, wrote a guest post for Plan International USA on May 20, asking for donations to the Because I Am a Girl Safe Future project, which aims to support young women in Egypt and give them the same rights and privileges of people in more developed nations.

“I am having a baby girl in six weeks. You have all been so lovely in your message to me, and I thank you for that,” she said.

“My daughter will have freedom of choice. She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman. She’ll be able to wear what she wants, put on lipstick, and read books that spark debate and expand her mind.”

Monica: Being a Mother Has Helped Me Appreciate My Own Mom More

05/22/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

Growing up in the spotlight, Monica Brown was exposed to a lot at an early age, and it was her mother, Marilyn Best, who kept her grounded.

“I was able to avoid a lot of things that happen, especially to children who become celebrities, because I felt comfortable in my own skin because of my mom,” the R&B singer, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“She instilled certain morals and values, and she said, ‘Regardless of where you go, take you with you wherever you go. Whatever you’re around, whatever you see, never allow it to play a part in who you become.’ ”
