Some of our favourite Kiwi personalities have had a big few months, welcoming new additions to their young families.

Although Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's pregnancy news won countless hearts, there is already a fleet of adorable wee faces that have been filling our social media feeds lately.

We checked in on how some of New Zealand's favourite new mamas are handling motherhood.

Sharyn Casey and baby Tyson

The Edge afternoon host and her husband, The Rock Morning Rumble host Bryce Casey, welcomed their son Tyson Lloyd Casey last month. The new mum says having new addition to their family of four (including their dog Warren) is "bloody awesome".

"I don't think anything can prepare you for being someone's parent, it's both the most relentless and hardest thing I've ever done, but also the most rewarding and coolest thing I've ever done," Casey says.

The radio host has been open about her struggles with miscarriages in the past, and on her blog shared some tips for other new mums.

"No question is a stupid question. Seriously, the things I've asked [our midwife] are sometimes hilarious, but hey, if you don't ask you don't know," Casey said.

"Also, if your mates have had babies, punish them with questions... the amount of texts I've sent that instantly make me feel better than I'm not the only one is the best."

Ladyhawke, Madeleine Sami and their new baby girl 

Rocker Ladyhawke, real name Pip Brown, and her filmmaker wife Madeleine Sami welcomed their daughter, appropriately enough, on Labour weekend in October last year.

The new mums haven't shared a photo of their wee girl yet, but The Breaker Upperers filmmaker Sami shared a classic #mumlife photo on Instagram.

"So cool that I got this awesome expensive phone so I can take really cool pics of all the cool stuff happening in my life. #instaenvy# wanderlust ," she captioned the photo.

Her wife commented on the photo saying, "For the record I want to say I folded all that washing... just sayin."

Laura McGoldrick and baby Harley

TV and radio host Laura McGoldrick and her husband, Blackcaps captain Martin Guptill, welcomed their wee girl Harley Lousie Guptill in October 2016.

The Westside actress spoke to Newshub from Sydney on Thursday and said it's been "so full on and so cool",  but she couldn't have done it without the help of her family. 

"My mum, dad and brothers have all been taking turns babysitting, it's been amazing. The first Christmas was superb. I got her a Santa sack bigger than [Harley] and Mum and dad got her different Christmas outfits so she had about four outfit changes on Christmas days."

It hasn't been easy though, with Guptill having to leave with the Blackcaps in India only a couple of weeks after Harley's birth.

"Him leaving was really hard - probably harder for him," McGoldrick said.

"Babies change so much so quickly and I think that was the hardest."

She's been back at work presenting at Sky and filming Three's Westside and says it's been "really good".

"I've been lucky I work with people who [are] really accommodating and helpful. Harley comes and visits me on set and all the cast love her and have cuddles." 

Valerie Adams and baby Kimoana

Kiwi athletics great Dame Valerie Adams her husband Gabriel Price welcomed daughter Kimoana Josephine Adams-Price into the world in October last year.

The two-time Olympic shot put champion has been sharing photos of the ridiculously cute baby's first summer on Instagram, including the pair of them trying to beat the heat. Last month, Adams posted pictures of herself with Kimoana cooling off in the pool, and sharing a hilarious photo of the three-month old unimpressed with the baking hot Auckland weather.
