2016 gave us a fleet of adorable celebrity babies—from Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s daughter Lunato James Van Der Beek’s daughter Emilia. (Yes, James Van Der Beek totally deserves to be referenced in this intro, don’t question his never-ending relevancy.) That said, 2017 is poised to be even more epic. Here’s who’s bumping their way into the new year.
1. AMAL CLOONEY
Much like Beyoncé, Amal Clooney is reportedly pregnant with twins! She and her husband George Clooney will welcome their little ones in June.
2. ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley announced that she and Jason Statham are expecting their first child via Instagram. The couple are currently engaged, and babies have clearly been on their mind for a while. Back in 2015, Huntington-Whiteley told Esquire, “Having a family is something I think about for sure, and whether I’d live here in America or in England.”
Beyoncé announced the arrival of her twin babies on February 1, the first day of Black History Month. Naturally, she dropped an entire photo spread on her website shortly after.
4. AMANDA SEYFRIED
Amanda Seyfried confirmed news of her pregnancyby casually showing up at a Givenchy party with a baby bump, which is completely epic and the way all pregnancies should be announced henceforth.
5. IRINA SHAYK
Wait, actually Irina might win the “completely epic pregnancy reveal” award, because rumors about her bump started when she showed up at—wait for it—the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She and Bradley Cooper have kept the news pretty private, but sources tell E! that Irina was in her second trimester as of November, and is “so excited.”
Ciara announced her pregnancy via Instagram in October, writing “On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family.. and I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give….”

7. NATALIE PORTMAN
Because why not, Natalie Portman debuted her baby bump at the Venice Film Festival, where she hit the carpet wearing a Dior gown that accentuated her figure. Speaking of, apparently the size of her bump has been causing some incorrect speculation about her due date. “I’m a small person in general,” Portman said during a Tonight Show appearance in November. “You show a lot faster and a lot more when you’re small. Everyone thinks I’m about to pop and about to give birth at any minute and I have months to go.”
8. GAL GADOT
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot announced her second pregnancy in November with an appropriately captioned Instagram post. She also showed off her growing belly at The Golden Globes.

9. LAUREN CONRAD
Much like Gadot, Lauren Conrad dropped news of her pregnancy on social media, sharing an Instagram post of her sonogram over the New Year, which said “I have a feeling 2017 is going to the the best year yet….”
10. AMBER TAMBLYN
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star Amber Tamblyn is expecting her first child with David Cross, and announced the news in an essay about Hillary Clinton and motherhood. “Motherhood has been heavily on my mind because I am going to be a mother soon. I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way,” she said. “I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into. How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen, but the language and conversations are spoken in?”
11. MARION COTILLARD
After news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce broke the internet, said internet was quick to assume Pitt was having an affair with his Allied costar, Marion Cotillard. She responded on Instagram, saying: “I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.” Shut. Down.
12. CHERYL COLE
Calling all One Direction fans (don’t be ashamed)! Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne met on The X Factor, and have been caught up in a whirlwind romance ever since. While Cheryl never made a formal announcement about the pregnancy, that bump is pretty hard to ignore.
13. LAKE BELL
Lake Bell announced her second pregnancy by showing up to the premiere of Saved with a major bump, and looked absolutely glowing. The actress is married to tattoo artist Scott Campbell.
14. ZOOEY DESCHANEL
Zooey Deschanel and her hubby, Jacob Pechenik, are expecting baby number two! The couple already have an adorably-named daughter, Elsie Otter, who was born in July 2015. And yes, Elsie’s middle name was inspired by Deschanel’s love of *actual* otters. “They use tools, they hold hands while they sleep,” Deschanel said on the Today Show. “There are so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.” #Truth.
