There’s nothing more exciting than finding out someone’s family is about to get bigger — even if that someone is a celebrity you’ve never even met. Call us crazy, but finding out about newly pregnant celebrities gives us the warm and fuzzies every time. And just in case you feel the same way, we’re tracking all the celebs expecting babies in 2020 so you can share in their joy.
Let’s face it: with the amount of time we spend on social media every day, sometimes it can feel like we’re interacting with our celeb “friends” just as much as our real friends. And when stars who are super-active on social media get pregnant, that often means nine months of some highly candid anecdotes about unexpected pregnancy symptoms and details on how they’re planning for the baby’s arrival.
Naturally, we love to see stars who aren’t afraid to get real about what pregnancy looks and feels like — in fact, it might be one of the best uses of social media we’ve ever seen. In 2020, we’re looking forward to more pregnancy journeys from our favorite stars, following in the footsteps of celebs like Ashley Graham and Amy Schumer.
Graham’s naked pregnancy photoshoot and Schumer’s accounts of the horrors of hyperemesis gravidarum went a long way toward helping other expecting moms feel seen, heard, and supported as they faced their own challenges, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 stories from stars will come next.
So, which celebs are expecting this year? Click through for a complete list of 2020’s celebrity pregnancies — and congrats to these stars!
