The 2020 celebrity baby boom (that we can't help but think the on-going pandemic and stay-at-home orders contributed to) has carried into 2021. So many of our favorite celebrity couples have shocked us with baby news recently.
Weeks after getting engaged, NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes revealed his fiancée Brittany Matthews is pregnant with their first child (subsequently taking a small "detour" to the wedding!). And after two years of marriage, Game of Thrones couple Rose Leslie and Kit Harington are expecting. We even another royal baby on the way! This time, it's Princess Eugenie who's pregnant, announcing the news just one month shy of her second wedding anniversary with husband Jack Brooksbank.
Emma Roberts may be the first major celebrity to welcome a baby this year. The actress gave birth to a sweet baby boy Rhodes Robert Hedlund on January 12 and shared the news on Instagram. Adorable, no?
But even with all of that baby excitement, there are still so many celebrities flaunting baby bumps right now. Ahead, every famous couple expecting a baby in the coming months—and the little A-listers we cannot wait to meet.

She looks great, she looks healthy, she’s glowing,” a source tells the magazine. “She’s been keeping up with friends and work lately, she’s always staying active and gets her daily exercise in.”
The expectant couple started dating in October 2017 and reportedly got hitched in September after being spotted out and about with matching wedding bands. These two really know how to keep things unders wraps, so there's no telling when their little one is expected to arrive.
