Social media has made it possible for fans to follow their favorite celebs as they meet major milestones in their lives, and people love to learn all they can about big stars more now than ever have before. When it comes to the lifestyles of the rich and famous, two of the most intriguing and talked-about occurrences are pregnancy and parenthood. Fans can’t get enough of the baby bumps, the gender reveal deets and those first epic shots of baby after he or she arrives, especially when the little one’s mama is a huge star.
2019 is shaping up to be an unprecedented year for celebrity babies. Who knows? Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood’s babies-to-be may have some celeb playmates due to arrive in the not-too-distant future. Here are the 20 celebs who most likely plan on getting pregnant in 2019.
Celebrities are often tight-lipped about their pregnancies in the beginning, so who’s to say that some of the women on the list below don’t already have buns in their ovens? Fans can only hope that our predictions are correct, and that 2019 will be the best year yet for celeb babies. This is breaking news, so be prepared for excitement!
20 Jessica Biel
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are the proud parents of one three-year-old son, Silas. In January of 2018, Timberlake admitted in an interview with Beat 1's Zane Lowe that he and Jess had plans to expand their family. He stated, "I want to have as many kids as we can, if I'm being honest."
Not long afterwards, ET's Lauren Zima asked Jess about her hubby's comments at the American Express' Live Life launch event in New York. Biel responded, "Did he say that? Oh, that's interesting. You know, kids are amazing. They are really hard, but they are really amazing. I think it would be amazing to have a bigger family. I don't know if that is in the cards for us, we will see. But I am feeling him. I don't know what that means exactly, but I like his dedication!"
19 Blake Lively
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have two adorable daughters together, and both of them have been open about the fact that they aren't done having children. It's likely that their little ones James and Ines will gain a sibling or two or more in the not-too-distant future. Speaking about her desire to have a large family, Lively has shared, "I’m one of five kids. My husband’s one of four. So we’re officially breeders.”
How does Reynolds feel about having more kids? When asked not long ago about any plans he and his lady love had to expand their brood, he kept things vague and responded, “Definitely going to have more [alone time], but we’ll see what happens after that.”
18 Lauren Conrad
Lifestyle blogger Lauren Conrad and her man William Tell have an adorable one-year-old son named Liam. When Conrad was was asked in an interview soon after her wedding how many children she and Tell wanted to have, she responded, "Maybe two. That way we aren't outnumbered."
Speaking about life since becoming a mom, the star told Romper, "I feel so spoiled. Liam is such a good baby." If two is the magic number for LC and Tell, now would be as good a time as any to have another. If Conrad does become pregnant in 2019, Liam will have a sibling that is close to him in age.
17 Heidi Montag
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt welcomed their first child Gunner to the world in October of 2017. Soon after their son's arrival, E! News inquired after the couple's desire to have more babies. Spencer's reply? “Oh yeah, every day. Next year, right?”
Heide added, “I’d love a girl or a boy. I love having a son. It’s so much fun. So if we have another boy, we’ll probably have three [kids].” Both Pratt and Montag have openly stated that they are ready to have another child in the very near future. It only makes sense that 2019 is the year they will make this dream a reality.
16 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner has a daughter, Stormi, with her man Travis Scott. She's one of the most popular moms on social media, and recently had the internet abuzz with speculation after posting a conversation with her BFF Jordyn Woods to Snapchat in which she admitted to wanting more kids. According to DailyMail.com, Kylie dished, "Am I going to have another baby? I want another baby but 'when?' is the question and I'm definitely not ready right this second. And I don't know when I will be, but yeah, when I do, I'd love to share more of that with you guys."
The lip mogul and mother-of-one also admitted to coming up with possible names for her future babies. She shared, "Have I thought of baby names for my next baby? Um I have, but I haven't found anything that I love love. But I definitely want another girl, hopefully, and I want her to have a really feminine name, that's all I know."
15 Mandy Moore
Soon after becoming engaged to her man, musician Taylor Goldsmith, This is Us star Mandy Moore opened up to Shape magazine about their desire to start a family. She shared, "If you were to tell me two years ago that I'd be talking about my life in this way with you, I would have said that you were crazy...And we can start a family, hopefully sooner rather than later, and establish our own traditions."
Now that Moore and Goldsmith have officially tied the knot, we can only wait with bated breath until they announce the joyous news that they have a little one on the way. Fingers crossed!
14 Priyanka Chopra
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are now officially man and wife, and fans everywhere are hoping a baby is in their near future. Speaking about their plans to start a family, the Quantico star recently told People magazine, "We definitely want kids, and when the time is right, it will happen."
A source close to the pair recently dished to Us Weekly that Chopra and Jonas can't wait to have children. They did get engaged after just two months of dating, so it's not outside of the realm of possibility that this beautiful newly married couple will announce news of an impending arrival in 2019.
13 Jade Tolbert
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert met and fell in love on the the hit ABC reality show Bachelor in Paradise, and have been living a fairy tale life ever since. Their beautiful wedding was televised, and, soon after they became man and wife, they announced they had a baby on the way.
The couple welcomed daughter Emerson Avery to the world in August of 2017, and are now gearing up for round two. At a Lord & Taylor event in New York City earlier this year, Jade told People magazine, “We’re kind of low-key trying for another baby. We’ve been talking about it. We want our kids to be close in age so they’re close siblings, and I’m not getting any younger. We’ll see when the next one happens, but yeah — we’re officially not not trying!”
12 Princess Eugenie
Princess Eugenie wed long-time love Jack Brooksbank this past October. She hasn't revealed when or if they plan on having children, but her mother Sarah Ferguson has alluded to the fact that the pair will most likely have little ones...and sooner rather than later.
According to Cosmopolitan, Ferguson revealed on the BBC new program The One Show that she couldn't wait to be a grandmother, and that her daughter and new son-in-law are excited to start a family. Ferguson shared, “They are thrilled because I write children’s books and I’m a child...I haven’t grown up.” She added that she thinks they will be great parents due to the fact that they are "loving" and "very inclusive."
11 Christine Andrew
Christine Andrew is the successful boss babe behind HelloFashionBlog.com. She and her her handsome hubs have one adorable son together, and the blogger recently revealed online that she and her man are in the process of trying to have another baby.
In one recent post, she told her followers, “You guys have been following our journey as we try for another baby...Thanks for your unlimited support. You guys are family to us!” The chic couple has been seeing a fertility specialist, and our hopes are high that they’ll bring their next high fashion baby to the world in 2019.
10 Nikki Reed
Actress Nikki Reed and her handsome hubby Ian Somerhalder welcomed a beautiful baby girl to the world in the summer of 2017. Now that she’s passed the one year mark, fans are beginning to speculate about when or if this adorable family will continue expanding.
While she was expecting her first child, Reed told Fit Pregnancy, “A close friend had a son and I remember thinking, ‘I hope I have a son one day.’ Then another friend had a girl and I thought, ‘How fun would it be to have a miniature version of yourself?’ You can’t lose, no matter what. It’s the greatest and only true surprise of your life.” This leads us to believe that Nikki won’t stop until she has at least one of each. 2019 may be the perfect time for she and her man to begin trying for another.
9 Chrissy Teigen
Model Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend have two precious tots together. If statements made by the mother-of-two are any indication of the future, it’s safe to assume these two aren’t done having children just yet.
Teigen recently told People magazine, “John wants however many kids I want. That’s the good think with John...he is down for it. Are we ready right now? No! I really love having two, but I think when I’m 70, I’ll look back and say, ‘Oh, I wish I had more.’ I can’t see myself regretting having a ton of kids.” Due to the fact that their first two children Luna and Miles are close in age, it would only make sense for this charming duo to begin trying for a third in 2019.
8 Cheryl Burke
Dancing With the Stars coach Cheryl Burke recently got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Matthew Lawrence, and has been open about the fact that she can’t wait to start a family with him. She’s less sure, however, about whether or not she’ll allow her future children to be dancers.
The bold beauty told Us Weekly, “I definitely want to be a mom. I just don’t know about this dance world though. I don’t know if I want them involved in this. It’s a lot of pressure, and they have to grow up way too fast. That’s what I did. I don’t want them to grow up fast. I want them to stay kids forever...they can be doctors, they can be lawyers, they’re not dancers. I can’t do it.”
7 Behati Prinsloo
Behati Prinsloo and her man Adam Levine have two adorable little ones together, and both of them have been open about the fact that they are far from done. When Prinsloo was asked recently by a fan on IG how many more kids she wanted, her response was, “Ugh. So many,” followed by a slew of baby emojis.
According to People magazine, Levine revealed during an interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show,“We want, like, a lot. At least five...we have to have a band of children.” He also told Degeneres that his wife wanted “about 100 kids.” He continued, “I want a lot, I thrive in chaos. She was an only child so she wants like 100 babies. I don’t know if I can do that. That’s a lot of babies.”
6 Leighton Meester
Leighton Meester and her husband Adam Brody are a match made in early 2000 television heaven. They share one adorable daughter, and are very private about their family-of-three but a statement made by Meester in the not-too-distant past leads us to believe another baby may be in their near future.
Soon after getting married, Meester told NYLON magazine, “Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs." Allow us to point out that the actress didn’t say kid, she said kids. We won’t be one bit surprised if the news that the couple is expecting another breaks in 2019.
5 Witney Carson
Witney Carson gained fame on the hit show So You Think You Can Dance before landing a spot as a coach on Dancing With the Stars. She got married in 2016, and her fans have been hunting for hints of a baby bump underneath her sparkling costumes ever since. Carson recently revealed to People magazine that she and her hubby Carson McAllister are “thinking about” starting a family, but she has no intention of leaving the show if she does get a bun in her oven.
She told the mag, “Peta [Murgatroyd] has done it. Allison [Holker] has done it. So it is doable. Obviously you have to take a little bit of a break, but I think what better way to get back into shape than dancing. I don’t know, we’ll see.”
4 Hailey Baldwin
Ever since Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin tied the knot, their fans have been on pins and needles waiting for the news that they are expecting a child together. Baldwin revealed in the December 2018 issue of Vogue Arabia, “I love kids and I can’t wait to have my own. I would say now that’s a closer reality.”
A source close to the newly married couple recently revealed to Us Weekly, “Hailey and Justin are living in Waterloo, Ontario, full-time now. That’s their home base. Justin has a huge home up there...9,000 square feet, 1,000 acres, on a lake. He loves it up there and so does Hailey.” Sounds like 2019 is shaping up to be the perfect time for Hailey and Justin to bring a baby into the world.
3 Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus and her longtime love Liam Hemsworth have definitely faced ups and downs over the course of their relationship. However, they seem to have overcome any past problems and their relationship appears to be stronger than it’s ever been before. According to DailyMail.co.uk, a source close to the pair has revealed, “They’ve wanted a baby for ages, but the timing was never right. But now they feel as ready as they’ll ever be.”
The insider also dished that Miley has been “preparing her body for a possible pregnancy.” Need more proof that these two will most likely try for a baby in 2019? The source continued, “She told Liam she’s ready to make getting pregnant a top priority.”
2 Jenna Johnson
Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson are simply the cutest. Since becoming engaged earlier this year, they’ve been open about how much they simply adore each other, and how excited they are to become man and wife. Chmerkovskiy recently told People magazine, “I think Jenna is going to be an incredible mom. She’s already an amazing companion, and I love her very much for many reasons...I know our future is bright because together we can do anything we want to do. I can’t wait to have her by my side.”
Speaking about having kids, Jenna joked to the mag that she was slightly anxious about having “little Vals running around.” She continued, “We’re literally both the same person, just male and female, so I can’t wait to see how intense and competitive and passionate about life our kids are too.” We can’t wait either!
1 Carly Waddell
Carly Waddell and her hubby Evan Bass found love on the hit ABC show Bachelor in Paradise. Soon after getting married, they announced the exciting news that they were expecting their first child together. Since welcoming their baby girl Isabella to the world, Carly has frequently taken to IG to gush about how much she loves her daughter. She recently captioned a pic of herself and her mini-me, “My heart beats outside my body now.”
Waddell also recently dished on social media, “Thing they don’t tell you about motherhood: hormonal changes...One day we’ll want to make Miss Bella a big sister.” Here’s hoping that day is sooner rather than later!
