We are currently in the midst of a celebrity baby boom. Ever since 2020, COVID-19, and the subsequent quarantine, it seems like half of Hollywood has announced they were expecting. And the trend continues as we approach two full years in the pandemic.
Stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Katherine Schwarzenegger shared that they were pregnant in 2021. As we await the arrival of their little ones, 2022 is already starting out strong with even more exciting baby news. Here are all the celebrities that have announced they were expecting in 2022 so far.
Sarah Levy and Graham Outerbridge
Sarah Levy is going to be a mom! The Schitt’s Creek star announced on May 16 that she’s expecting her first child with husband Graham Outerbridge. The actress revealed the exciting news with an Instagram photo that showed off her baby bump. “We’ll take all the salt & vinegar chips and the hottest hot sauce you have, thx!” she captioned the post.
Levy married her actor and producer husband on October 16, 2021, and they’ve been together since at least 2018. We can’t wait to watch them start a family!
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari
Britney Spears is pregnant! The pop sensation announced on April 11 that she and fiancé Sam Asghari are going to have their first baby together. The singer shared the big news on Instagram by explaining that she was confused why she was gaining so much weight after a trip to Maui with her fitness trainer fiancé. "So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby,” she said in her caption.
The pop star is already a mom of two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, from her previous marriage with Kevin Federlin. So, she continued the post by reflecting on her past experience as an expecting celebrity. “It’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression,” she wrote. “I have to say it is absolutely horrible 😔 … women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her … but now women talk about it everyday.”
She ended the post by outlining how this pregnancy will be different. “This time I will be doing yoga 🧘♀️ every day,” she told her Instagram audience.
The couple has been engaged since September 2021, and they’ve been dating since 2016. We couldn’t be happier for them!
