Many celebrity fans are saying that 2018 was the year of famous babies, as it brought Hollywood new additions like Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi and Cardi B’s baby Kulture. While a ton of little cuties graced the world last year, this year is set to have even more exciting celebrity births. And we’re not just saying that because another Kardashian baby is due!
There are tons of celebrity couples set to expand their families in 2019. For some, it will be their first mini-me, while others seem like they’re never going to stop expanding their broods. Some of these celebs announced their baby news months ago, while others kept us waiting until the dawn of the New Year. At least it’s better than Kylie Jenner’s approach, who not only waited until the New Year but until she’d actually given birth to her little one to make a public announcement. After that, we don’t think we’ll ever be surprised by a celebrity pregnancy.
Keep on reading to learn which stars are making the world a little bit brighter with their new additions this year. These famous babies could go on to become the next Oscar winner or prize-winning athlete, which makes it even more exciting to meet the next generation of celebrity babies.
25 Amy Schumer
Comedian Amy Schumer announced last year that she’s expecting her first child with her new husband Chris Fischer. But while fans are elated over her surprise post, the celeb has been having anything but an easygoing pregnancy.
Amy has been dealing with hyperemesis gravidarum, also known as extreme morning sickness. She’s posted multiple photos of herself in the hospital, including a black and white photo on New Year’s Eve. “Laughing into 2019 like,” she captioned the photo, adding, “Photo Cred is my main squeeze.”
Snooki has come a long way since Jersey Shore, as she’s been happily married to her partner Jionni LaValle since 2014. Together, the couple shares two children: son Lorenzo and daughter Giovanna.
Last November, the reality star surprised fans when she revealed she’s expecting baby no. 3- a little boy! “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving,” Snooki captioned the post, which featured a photo of her two kids holding an ultrasound.
Back in August 2018, the celebrity had told Entertainment Tonight that she and her husband were indeed trying. "I’m trying now," she said at the time. "I’m practicing now. It’s going good. I’m not pregnant yet but, I mean, we’ve been practicing for a month now so…" We’re glad their wish came true!
23 Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson already had her hands full with two kids- son Ace and daughter Maxell- whom she shares with her husband, Eric Johnson (the pair have been married since 2014). But the celeb is getting prepared to take on even more, as she announced her third pregnancy last fall- and it’ll be a baby girl!
"This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life,” Jessica wrote in a post to social media alongside a photo of her two children holding a garland while surrounded by pink balloons.
22 Kim Kardashian
It was only a little over a year ago that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogate, daughter Chicago. Chi joined their two older children, daughter North and son Saint.
However, the famous couple did not delay in expanding their family via surrogacy once more, as the news broke early this year that they’re expecting baby no. 4- a little boy!- with the help of a surrogate.
According to E! News, the pair are using a different surrogate as their original one is currently expecting her own child. The little boy is due to be delivered in May.

50 Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan has been married to fellow actress Amelia Warner since 2013 and they share two daughters: 5-year old Dulcie and 3-year old Elva. The couple announced last October that baby no. 3 is on the way.
“I’m just as excited as I was the first two times,” Jamie told Us Weekly.“I’m very, very excited.” He added that he feels more than ready for this new responsibility, saying, “We get frustrated at times, usually when travelling with the kids, but we’d never let anything boil and becoming a thing.”

Fans of Teen Mom OG will know that reality stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been going through a rough patch in their marriage after losing their third pregnancy over a year ago (the two are parents to 3-year old Nova as well as an older daughter, Carly, who they played for adoption).
However, fans were elated when they announced their fourth pregnancy last year, referring to the child as their ‘miracle child’ and ‘rainbow baby.’ The couple revealed on-camera that baby no. 3 will be another little girl, which means they’re likely to expand their family further later on since Tyler has been outspoken about wanting a son.
19 Sophie Hunter
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch will become a third-time father this year after it was announced in September that he and his wife, Sophie Hunter, are expecting another child. The couple wed in 2015 and are already parents to two sons: 3-year old Kit and 2-year old Hal.
While the couple never formally announced their good news, fans became aware of Sophie’s pregnancy at the 2018 Emmy’s, when she couldn’t disguise her visible baby bump. “It’s a joyous thing. I’m very happy to have them in my life, very lucky as well,” Benedict told People in 2016 about how much he was enjoying fatherhood.

Saved By The Bell actor Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney Lopez revealed last month that they’re expecting baby no. 3 later this year. Mario posted a video to social media in which his family shared their news.

Mrs. Lopez, what about you?” Courtney then replied, “I’m having a baby,” as she lifted up her shirt to reveal her growing bump.

April gave birth to their first child together, daughter Mia Love, last February. By August, the model revealed that she was expecting again and the two became engaged over the holidays. While this is April’s second child, it’s actually Robin’s third, as he shares an older son, Julian, with his first wife.

Well, last year they got their answer when Lily announced her second pregnancy alongside her husband Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill.
Though it’s to be determined if Lily has a girl or a boy, the celeb did tease her gender reveal in October when she posted a photo showing off two balloons they used to announce the gender to their friends and family.
