Trending in Hollywood right now: Pre-marital pregnancy! We're so excited to hear that newly-engaged Ginnifer Goodwin is expecting her first child with fiancé and Once Upon A Time costar Josh Dallas (the pair announced their engagement only a month ago!). And she's not the only celebrity to announce a pregnancy within the past 24 hours: Newlywed Kelly Clarkson broke news via Twitter last night that she and brand-new husband Brandon Blackstock will be having a baby as well. Both stars' speedy trips to motherhood remind us of some other celebrities whose marriage-and-baby paths recently overlapped.
While Kerry Washington publicized her pregnancy news a mere three months after her secret wedding, Jessica Simpson got the engagement ring and then debuted her baby bump, putting her wedding plans on hold. Somewhere in between their announcements is Drew Barrymore, who walked down the aisle radiating with joy while six months pregnant last year. Not to mention, just a few weeks ago a betrothed Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis confirmed they too were expecting. Where do Goodwin and Clarkson fall on this scale? And where does engaged and expectant Olivia Wilde fit into the mix? Read on to find out!

Goodwin announced her engagement to her Once Upon a Time costar Josh Dallas a month ago. Though we expected some whimsical wedding planning details to surface next, instead we got the announcement that she's pregnant! Goodwin and Dallas confirmed the news to People earlier today, though they didn't reveal any other details such as her due date. We've got to say: At this point, we're hoping they wait to tie the knot after Goodwin delivers their bundle of joy. The child of TV's Snow White and Prince Charming wearing an adorable flower girl dress is something we'd really like to see.
Our prediction: She's totally going to get married Jessica Simpson style
We're considerably less surprised by Kelly Clarkson's baby announcement—we could have seen it coming from a mile away! Just three weeks ago, she said she wanted to be pregnant by Christmas. Clarkson, who married Brandon Blackstock in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee in early October, blurted out that she and her new husband were "trying like rabbits" to get pregnant during a TV appearance later that week. Given the timing of her announcement, it's likely that she was already with child when she said that, not to mention secretly pregnant at her wedding.
No prediction necessary: She and Kerry Washington might have the same due date!

When Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis got engaged in January, we feverishly anticipated details of her custom Monique Lhuillier wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and every other glamorous detail. With her late October baby announcement, we realized that Lhuillier would potentially have to let out that one-of-a-kind bridal creation. We're sticking to that epiphany: Like Barrymore, Wilde would make a beautiful bride no matter when she said "I do," which is why we'd love to see her get married with that extra bit of pregnancy glow!
