Even though the year has only just begun, we already know what to anticipate from our favorite celebs over the coming months. With many high-profile weddings planned and other celebrities expecting children, this year is shaping up to be an exciting one. Every day, more and more celebrities are announcing their pregnancies and posting cute images of their growing tummies. Whether they have their first or fourth kid, you can bet that 2023 will overflow with adorable little babies.

1. Blake Lively

Blake Lively is not a new mother; throughout the years, she has made the loveliest pregnancy announcements. Still, it was impossible to contain one’s happiness when Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds announced that she was expecting their fourth child. The 35-year-old Hollywood celebrity beamed as she walked down the red carpet at Forbes’s Women in Power Summit in New York City and proudly displayed her growing belly.

Everyone was ecstatic to learn that Blake and Ryan were expanding their family of 5, as they have never missed a chance to show what a close-knit and lovely unit they are. As is customary for Lively and Reynolds, they have shared humorous moments of their pregnancy along with funny photos and captions, like the one above, in which the actress makes fun of her tummy while “complaining” to her personal trainer the workout isn’t exactly paying off.

2. Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen announced her third pregnancy on August 20, 2022, with a set of mirror selfies. She and her husband, John Legend, already have a huge family, but they have worked hard to expand it following her devastating pregnancy loss in 2020. When she revealed her pregnancy, the pictures were accompanied by an emotional message that underlined the struggle she faced as she wanted to ensure the health of her upcoming child.

“The last few years have been a blur of emotions, to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again,” Chrissy wrote on Instagram. However, according to recent reports, the couple welcomed their third child in the last few days, and then the singer announced it during a private concert, claiming, “What a blessed day!”

3. Hilary Swank

For numerous other celebrities whose pregnancies were their first, pregnancy brought even greater surprises. This is true for well-known actress Hilary Swank, who is now overjoyed while expecting at the age of 48. Swank and her husband were wed in 2018, but they never thought about having children since they both wanted to wait for the proper time.

Now Hilary is glowing more than ever, and when she revealed she was pregnant during an interview, she caught everyone off guard by announcing she was having twins. Swank claimed: “This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” then continuing, “and not just of one, but of 2. I can’t believe it.”

4. Nikki Reed

The wonderful couple, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, became parents for the first time in July 2017 when they spoke up about their path to parenthood a few months after their daughter was born. The couple was so thrilled to be able to create a family together that they decided to have more children.

On Instagram, Nikki revealed the news of her second pregnancy with the caption, “2023 celebrating life.” She posted a photo of herself holding their 5-year-old daughter while cuddling her growing baby bump. The second-time mother wrote, ’’Years of dreaming, manifesting, and praying over this very moment. So much love. What a gift.’’

5. Jessie J

Pregnancy may sometimes signify the end of a dark period, as it did for British singer Jessie J, who recently announced her pregnancy following a miscarriage last year. The announcement took both fans and fellow celebs aback. “I’m so happy and terrified to share this finally,” she stated.

She confessed a year ago on Instagram, in a subsequently deleted post, that she had miscarried after opting to carry a kid on her own. Since then, the singer has expressed her feelings regarding the loss. In a poignant statement, the singer spoke up about it. “I could go through this moment in private and usually do, but today I am here because I know thousands of people around the world feel just like I do,” Jessie said.

6. Naomi Osaka

The tennis prodigy Naomi Osaka has decided to take a break from her longtime passion for focusing on raising the child she’s carrying with love and care. In a message on social media, the tennis player said she was expecting her first baby with her partner, rapper Cordae. “Can’t wait to get back on the court, but here’s a little life update for 2023,” the caption read.

In an extended announcement, she added, “I realize that life is so short, and I don’t take any moments for granted, every day is a new blessing and adventure. I know that I have much to look forward to in the future, one thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches.”

7. Claire Danes


Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are expecting their third child, making this couple and their brood a family of 5. The wonderful news came just a few days before her appearance at the Golden Globes when she was nominated for best supporting actress in Fleishman Is in Trouble.

She addressed her pregnancy while walking the red carpet, noting “this one was not intentional,” but nonetheless being glad about it: “We’re excited, we’re thrilled,” she said. Claire also confessed to being in her second trimester and having no idea what gender her kid is.

8. Rumer Willis

Despite their divorce, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis have always prioritized their girls, creating a unique and close-knit family. Even though the family is currently dealing with the tragic illness that has recently shaken up Bruce’s life, they have received some of the best news. Indeed, Demi and Bruce will soon be grandparents, as their 34-year-old recently announced her pregnancy with boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas.

In a combined Instagram post with Derek, she revealed the joyful news with a carousel of bump shots. The adorable black and white series includes images of the soon-to-be father kissing and embracing Rumer’s pregnant belly. Demi has also reposted the news, writing the caption, “Entering my hot kooky unhinged grandma era.”
