2013 saw two very anticipated celebrity births when Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton each welcomed their first child. Now, it looks like 2014 is going to be another big year of Hollywood babies, with a slew of big-name stars announcing pregnancies over the last few months.
Check out our round-up of the year’s biggest pregnancy announcements and get an idea of which celeb babies you can look forward to next year!
It was a big year for the Once Upon a Time couple! They became engaged in October, and just a month later, their pregnancy was revealed.
With the box office triumph of Thor: The Dark World, it was a big year for Chris. Of course, his success was capped off with the ultimate good news — that his wife was expecting their second child! The couple announced the pregnancy in November.
13. Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett
This reality TV pair had their first son, Hank, just months after getting married in 2009. But after taking a few years to settle down as a new family, it looks like they’re finally ready to give him a younger sibling! Kendra confirmed her suspected pregnancy on Twitter at the end of October.
12. Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler
Since even before her son’s first birthday in August, Kristin was publicly open about she and Jay’s desire to have another child — and it didn’t take long for them to get their wish! The former reality star made her pregnancy announcement on Twitter at the end of October.
11. Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman
Rachel and Rodger were married for 15 years before welcoming their son, Skyler, in March 2011. Earlier this year, it was suspected that the fashion guru was expecting again, although she didn’t confirm the news herself until September. At nearly nine months pregnant (above), the 42-year-old doesn’t look ready to pop one bit!
10. Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman
Over the summer, Drew admitted that she and Will were ready for their second baby…so it was no surprise when her pregnancy was revealed in November. The new baby will be a younger sibling for the couple’s daughter, Olive, who turned 1 in September.
Emily and John’s pregnancy was revealed in September, although there was never a confirmation regarding how long she’d been carrying child. Still, there’s been no word on when the actress is expected to give birth to the couple’s first baby.
Before her son, Noah, was even a year old, Megan was already pregnant with she and husband, Brian’s, second child. The actress’ rep confirmed the news in August.
In 2010, Gwen and Gavin tried to give their two sons another sibling, but admitted later on that it “didn’t work out.” Three years later, it looks like they’ll finally be getting their wish! Although the 43-year-old hasn’t formally confirmed her pregnancy, there’s no hiding that baby bump!
6. Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock
Even before she married Brandon in October, Kelly went very public about her desire to get pregnant right away. Just a month after their wedding, before her first trimester even ended, the singer tweeted that her wish had come true.
5. Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll
This little one should be arriving any day now! After secretly tying the knot in December 2012, Kate and Ned announced the news that they were expecting their first baby together in June. This will be the actress’ third child — she already has a daughter with her first husband, Jim Threapleton, and a son with her second, Sam Mendes.
In October, Olivia’s rep confirmed that the actress and her fiance were expecting a child. Although Jason was married for six years, and Olivia for eight, before they got together in 2011, this will be the first baby for both of them.
3. Jennifer Love-Hewitt and Brian Hallisay
Jennifer actually already gave birth to her daughter, Autumn, in November. However, because she and her Client List costar are an incredibly low-key couple, their pregnancy news was a pretty unexpected. Star was first to reveal the couple’s exciting news, and one day after it was confirmed, they announced their engagement. They’ve since tied the knot, albeit secretly, and their wedding date is still unknown.
2. Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha
Considering this couple got married over the summer when nobody even knew they were dating, it’s no surprise that they have yet to confirm the pregnancy. However, multiple media outlets began reporting the news in October when she began wearing noticeably looser clothing — and there certainly haven’t been any denials from the actress’ camp!
1. Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman
Simon and Lauren made for one of the year’s biggest scandals, when it was revealed in August that she was pregnant with the X-Factor judge’s child…while still married to his best friend, Andrew Silverman! Nearly immediately after the news broke, the entrepreneur filed for divorce, and Simon and Lauren made their affair an official relationship. Despite his previous mantra that he’d never have kids, the 54-year-old has embraced his future role as a father.
