The life of a female celebrity requires a lot of devotion, dedication and sacrifice. They are constantly on the go and jet-setting all over the world. For most of these stars, even settling down to start a family is something that’s pushed to the back burner, mainly because their career just takes so much of their time. With that said, there are still many female stars who make the time to bring new bundles of joy to the world. Here is a list of celebrities expecting babies this year:
10 Scarlett Johansson:
9 Rachel Bilson:
In the topsy-turvy world of Hollywood, it’s nice to see a couple that can stay together for longer than a year and continue to keep their union going. Rachel Bilson, the Hart of Dixie star and Hayden Christensen have been together since since 2007, and now they are going to be welcoming a new addition to their family. These two are quite the dashing and good-looking pair, and we are sure that their child will be absolutely gorgeous.
8 Kelly Rowland:
It’s hard to live your career in the shadow of the everlasting glare of Queen Beyoncé, but Destiny Child’s member Kelly Rowland seems to be doing very well for herself. She has had quite a successful solo career of her own, and this past May, the 33-yr-old singer got married to longtime boyfriend and manager, Tim Witherspoon (both shown above). The beautiful nuptial ceremony was held in Costa Rica and recently Kelly Rowland has been spotted all over the news with a decent-sized baby bump. Beyoncé’s kid Blue Ivy will soon have a little friend to play with.
7 Mila Kunis:
It’s funny, but we have a feeling that we grew up with Mila Kunis and her beau Ashton Kutcher from the time they were young actors on the funny sitcom, That 70’s Show. And then afterwards, Kutcher went on to have that May-December relationship with the much older Demi Moore. Even though they both went on to be successful in their individual careers, they were still able to double back and find each other. Presently, Mila is showcasing her quickly growing baby bump, and all the pictures of the couple show Kutcher to be a loving and caring father-to-be. Wishing these two all the best.
6 Lake Bell:
Lake Bell is another one of those striking Hollywood beauties. On screen, she really has a grabbing presence as we saw in her role as Rachel in the hip HBO series, How to Make It In America. And just a little tip for the guys out there, if you haven’t seen Lake’s nude cover of last August’s New York Mag (wearing nothing but body paint), you certainly have to put that on your to-do list. In real life, she’s married to the talented tattoo artist to the stars Scott Campbell, and the two are expecting a child this year as yell.
5 Hayden Panettiere:
Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and that rule definitely applies to the union of pint-sized actress Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé, professional heavyweight boxer Wladmir Klitschko. The two have had quite an eventful year with Hayden enjoying the success of her TV show Nashville and Klitschko being extremely involved in the socio-political upheavals in his native country, Ukraine. But even with all this activity, the two still made time for love and recently announced they are expecting a child together.
4 Christina Ricci:
In Hollywood, it can be extremely difficult to navigate the terrain from being a child actor to a successful and level-headed adult actor. Examples abound of several individuals who got lost along the way. Christina Ricci is a welcome exception to this trend. From appearing as little Wednesday in the Addams Family movie as a young girl, she is still a respected actress today. She recently married her beau James Heerdegen, a dolly grip she met on her short-lived show Pan Am, and the two are expecting a baby this year.
3 Savannah Brinson (LeBron James’s wife):
2 Jenna Fischer:
Wow, come to think of it, we really miss the NBC sitcom, The Office. Apart from the stellar acting of Steve Carell, there were just so many great supporting characters on that show like Dwight, Kelly and of course, Pam. Speaking of Pam, that role was played by the pitch-perfect Jenna Fischer, and this year, the 40-yr-old actress announced that she is expecting a second child with her writer/director husband, Lee Kirk.
1 Stacy Keibler:
34-yr-old Stacy Keibler has led a very interesting life to say the least. She has worked as a valet, a professional wrestler, an actress, and she has even dated the devilishly handsome, silver fox himself, George Clooney. But now, she’s about to take on the most important role of her life. She recently got married to her boyfriend Jared Pobre, and they just announced that they are expecting a child together. After working as a pro-wrestler, handling a little baby should be child’s play for her.
