Which celebs will be adding to their families this year?

Here at Modern Day Moms, we are suckers for new babies. Like I’m sure you are too, we’re like frenzied sharks when we hear there’s a new baby to cuddle (and smell… omg that baby smell)! And since we’re baby crazy, we can’t wait to see pics of Jessica Simpson’s first child. Not to mention baby No. 3 for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner! So let’s get those ovaries working double time… let’s check out the ten most anticipated pregnancies of the 2012!


After a surprising pregnancy announcement on stage at the MTV VMAs, we’ve been dying in anticipation for baby news ever since! It’s been confirmed that superstar Beyoncé and rapper hubby Jay-Z welcomed a baby girl on Saturday, Jan. 7 via C-section whom they named Blue Ivy Carter. Their good pal Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed the happy news on Twitter: “Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already,” she wrote, and clarified, “It’s Blue Ivy Carter!” (There was some confusion about whether the “Ivy” came first or second!)

Hilary Duff

Disney darling Hilary Duff, 24, announced her first pregnancy on her first wedding anniversary. The Lizze Maguire star and husband, hockey star Mike Comrie, are expecting a baby boy in early 2012. Her big floppy hat is super cute too!

Jennifer Garner

Some of our favorite celebrity parents of 2011, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, will be adding to their adorable brood any day now. The high profile couple are already parents to darling daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3. We can’t wait to hear if the baby boy rumors are true!

Robert Downey, Jr. & Susan Levin

My personal favorite (and celebrity crush) Robert Downey Jr., and wife Susan Levin are expecting their first child together – a boy – in February. The Sherlock Holmes star is already dad to son Indio, 18, from his previous marriage to Deborah Falconer.

Jessica Simpson

After months of speculation, singer/entrepreneur Jessica Simpson, 31, announced she’s expecting her first child with her fiancé Eric Johnson in late October. Jess has been very open about her various pregnancy cravings. The latest? “Kraft mac and cheese with Lawry’s seasoning salt is the breakfast for pregnant champions!!!,” she shared. (Omg, too gross for me!)

Kourtney Kardashian

The Kardashian klan is growing! Reality TV mama Kourtney Kardashian and beau Scott Disick are adding to their family. The on-again-off-again couple, who are already parents to son Mason, 2, recently announced they are expecting their second child. And it sounds like the pregnancy cravings are alive and well for the gorgeous expectant mama. “What should I make for lunch? I’m SO hungry! :),” Kourt tweeted.

Alessandra Ambrosio

Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio made her pregnancy news official on Facebook, debuting her baby bump alongside 3-year-old daughter Anja in a bikini on the beaches of her hometown of Florianópolis, Brazil. “Anja, Jamie and I are overjoyed and extremely appreciative of all the wonderful wishes we’ve received!!” the model mom wrote. “2011 has been a year filled with incredible gifts and this is the ultimate blessing!!” Man, I wouldn’t even be caught LOOKING at a bikini, let alone strutting around in underpants and Angel wings! Good for you, Alessandra!

Alyson Hannigan

Life is imitating art for How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan. Her character on the hit CBS sitcom is pregnant, and so is the mom-of-one. The Buffy alum and hubby Alexis Denisof, who are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Satyana, will welcome a new baby this year.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Academy Award-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and husband, fellow actor Peter Sarsgaard, announced in November that they are expecting again. The new addition will join their 5-year-old daughter Ramona.

Bryce Dallas Howard

Eclipse actress Bryce Dallas Howard and husband Seth Gabel are expecting their second child together. The daughter of famed actor/director Ron Howard opened up about the second time around. “Everyone has told me that it’s easier, but to be honest, the morning sickness has been so intense,” she admitted. Bryce and Seth are already parents to 4-year-old son Theo.
