Not being creatures that marry and reproduce their own kind, the angels were individually created by Jehovah through his firstborn Son, “the beginning of the creation by God.” (Mt 22:30; Re 3:14)
“By means of him (this firstborn Son, the Word) all other things were created in the heavens, the things invisible. Also, he is before all other things and by means of him all other things were made to exist.” (Col 1:15-17; Joh 1:1-3)
The angels were created long before man’s appearance, for at the ‘founding of the earth’ “the morning stars joyfully cried out together, and all the sons of God began shouting in applause.”—Job 38:4-7.
As for the number of the angelic hosts of heaven, Daniel said he saw “a thousand thousands that kept ministering to God, and ten thousand times, ten thousand that kept standing right before him.”—Da 7:10; Heb 12:22; Jude 14.
