Celebrities Who Made Babies While on Breaks From Their Mains

Otherwise known as: break babies.

A baby is always a gift.

Some gifts are expected. Others are not. More often than not, a break baby, a baby conceived while one of the parents was taking a break from another relationship, is unexpected. But he or she is a gift nonetheless.

From Chris Brown to Kimberly Anne Scott, these celebrities conceived children while on breaks from their significant others—and later got back together with them. Find out which of your famous faves have break babies in the gallery below.

She dumped him on Twitter shortly after the news broke.
