Celebrities are pretty good about keeping things hush-hush when they have a little one on the way. In fact, some famous moms-to-be are so good at keeping their pregnancies under wraps, we aren’t even aware they’re expecting until after they welcome their babies to the world. Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel actually went through an entire pregnancy, and gave birth, without any of her fans being the wiser. Impressive stuff. It wasn’t until one of her blabbermouth costars called her a mom in an interview that world realized she’d become a mama.
When we hear a celeb who never confirmed she was pregnant has given birth, we wonder what tell-tale signs we may have missed over the last nine months. Did she walk the red carpet in a super-flowy dress a few months ago? Did her social media accounts suddenly stop featuring full body shots? Did she lose her dinner in the middle of a Broadway production? (We’re looking at you, Jennifer Lawrence!)
We’ve done some detective work to determine 15 celebrities who may, in fact, be expecting, even though nothing has been confirmed quite yet. Stars may try to hide the signs that a baby is on board, but there are a few things that happen when a woman is preggers that make the miracle of bringing new life into the world kinda hard to conceal.
We’re calling it first. Read on for 15 celebs who we totally think have a bun in the oven at this very moment.
15 Kylie Jenner
Rumors are flying that reality star and lip mogul Kylie Jenner is expecting her first child with her current flame, Travis Scott. An insider has shared, "They’re not using protection, and she’s told a bunch of people that Travis is baby daddy material. Kylie’s moving way too fast with Travis but this is the way she rolls."
The star recently celebrated her 20th birthday in style with a surprise party. Her outfit choice for the evening, an oversized t-shirt, only exacerbated many of her fans' assumptions that she most definitely has a bun in her oven. Her family and boyfriend pulled out all the stops for her big day. The celebration included a chocolate fountain, Dippin' Dots ice cream and a cake that featured the reality star's face. Is it possible the fare was there to satisfy her pregnancy cravings?
One source told OK! Magazine that Jenner "couldn't be more excited about the news," and continued, "Kylie [has] kept to herself with the excuse that she's focused on her new makeup line. But we all think she’s staying out of the spotlight until she’s ready to share her news. She’s been keeping low-key for months now, and everyone thinks she’s pregnant.” If Kylie is, in fact, expecting, she's most likely due in January, around the same time her half sister, Kim, is set to be welcoming twins to the world via a surrogate. So cute.
14 Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton has dated a string of famous, and infamous, fellas over the years, but her current beau, Chris Zylka, seems to have stolen her heart like no one before him. It's safe to say that we think the pair will reveal sooner rather than later that they're expecting a baby together. Why? As of late, their behavior has gotten downright sappy, a surefire sign that a couple is enjoying the euphoria that parents-to-be experience right after they find out a baby is on the way.
On a recent trip to the Magic Kingdom, Zylka got a tattoo that goes way beyond sentimental. Paris featured his new tat on her Instagram account, along with an explanation of what it is and why her man chose to get it. The socialite gushed, "Such a lucky girl! My love surprised me and got my name tattooed in Disney font...And said cause I'm his most magical place on Earth and he finally found his fairytale princess."
Just a few hours later, Hilton posted another pic of herself and her man. She captioned the shot, "Happy Anniversary, my love! Thank you for making me feel like a Disney Princess every single day. You are my knight in shining armor and [have] made me see that fairytales exist & dreams really do come true." Told ya. Mushy stuff. If Paris isn't preggers already, she and Zylka are most likely making a baby right this very second.
13 Taylor Swift
Pop princess Taylor Swift made headlines recently when she deleted nearly all of her past posts on each and every one of her social media accounts, and her personal website. Fans are up in arms about what it all means, and among their theories is one that makes a lot of sense: Swift is expecting!
The starlet has been laying low all summer. Pics of her annual Fourth of July shindig were noticeably absent from social media last month, and she's been more private than ever before about her current main squeeze, Joe Alwyn.
Swift often goes to the extreme to get the attention of her fans, and many are speculating a big announcement is coming. You heard it here first: we think Swift has a baby on the way, and that when she does decide to share the ins and outs of her life with fans again, she'll also be sharing the wonderful news that she's preggers.
12 Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga has been open about the fact that she's ready to start a family. She split from her fiance of five years, Taylor Kinney, last year, but a source close to the singing sensation revealed, “Gaga is off birth control and trying to get pregnant. She’s joked that she wants a ‘Little Monster’ of her very own. She’s been doing tons of research about folic acid, calcium and iron and has religiously started taking prenatal vitamins.”
It has also been reported that Gaga has made efforts to make her Malibu mansion "baby friendly," including hiring a private chef to provide her with "fertility foods" and dedicating one of the rooms in her audacious abode to a nursery.
No word on who her potential baby daddy might be. We can only hope our suspicions are correct, and Gaga will announce her impending arrival any day now. We'll be over the moon for the singer if she is, in fact, looking forward to "goo goo's and ga ga's" in her near future.
11 Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian has been open about the fact that she wants to be a mom, and as she and her love, Tristan Thompson, reach the one year mark in their relationship, we're predicting that the two lovebirds have a baby on the way. The news of their pairing broke last September, and the reality star and her basketball player beau have been a hot item ever since. In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Khloe gushed, "My boyfriend is very protective of me. Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing."
Khloe recenlty sparked baby rumors when she shared, "It's good to find someone who has the same belief system and morals as you because it makes things easy. Tristan and I are both Christians; we go to church, we pray, we're vocal about God and spirituality. A lot of my girlfriends get pregnant without talking about things such as religion with their significant others and then find out they have different belief systems to them."
Sounds like the couple has done the groundwork, and are ready to welcome a little one the world. When asked about getting pregnant, Khloe admitted that she "definitely" wants to have a baby, but was sure to add, "I don't feel any pressure."
10 Jessica Biel
While nothing has been confirmed, multiple sources close to the ever-glowing Jessica Biel and her dapper husband, Justin Timberlake, have shared the news that the two are preparing to welcome their second child to the world. According to one insider, "[Biel] only just found out. Jess and Justin are both so excited because they have been talking about expanding their family for the last year.”
The pair's first child, Silas, turned 2 this past April, and would undoubtedly love a new baby brother or sister. The source also dished, “Jessica and Justin have always said they want a large family. So this is really just the beginning.”
Speaking on how the couple approaches parenting Silas, the insider shared, “They have both been very hands-on parents, and they pitch in and share most of the childcare duties. Justin and Jessica both say parenthood is their greatest gift.” Bring on the Biel-Timberlake babies! However many children they decide to have, no amount is too great!
9 Jennifer Lawrence
This past July, Jennifer Lawrence left a Broadway production of 1984 at NYC's Hudson Theater mid-performance to throw up in the bathroom. One of her close friends told reporters that the Oscar winning actress was "really sick" and "caught the stomach flu from her nephews." Likely story. Another possibility? She's sick with a baby.
Lawrence is currently dating director Darren Aronofsky. The two have been linked to each other as far back as last year. Lawrence has shared of their connection, “For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human … I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him." The starlet added, "I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He’s not like that.”
Lately, Lawrence has been making an effort to keep her personal life private, and has admitted, “It’s scary when you feel the whole world judges you." She's also joked, "I’m happy to meet people, give autographs, shake hands, and say ‘Thank you.' I wouldn’t have a job if people weren’t going to see my movies. It’s just … if I’m on an airplane and I have no makeup on, I don’t want to take a selfie that’s going to end up on E!” We wouldn't be surprised if Lawrence is expecting, but, due to her desire for privacy, holds off on announcing the wonderful news until late into her pregnancy, or after her bundle of joy arrives.
8 Sarah Hyland
Recent rumors that Sarah Hyland is expecting have been circulating since an observant internet troll tweeted at Hyland, "Based off your facial structure in recent episodes of Modern Family, I think you are pregnant." Fans of the actress were quick to come to her defense after the awkward statement. One wrote, “Nothing like a random person telling you that you're pregnant when it's your body and you'd know." Another added, "You are beautiful. Don’t even give that guy a second thought."
As of late, many have speculated that Hyland may have recently undergone a nose job and received breast implants. Others are sure her change in appearance is nothing more than a sign she's got a baby on board.
The news broke just a few days ago that Hyland has split from her boyfriend of two years, Dominic Sherwood. A rep for the couple shared, "It's genuinely mutual and amicable and they truly remain friends." Time will tell if Sherwood is Hyland's baby daddy, even if he's no longer her main man.
7 Gwen Stefani
It's been widely reported that Gwen Stefani and her love, Blake Shelton, would love nothing more than to have a little one together. The mother-of-three recently sparked rumors that their baby aspirations have become a reality when she was spotted sporting a rounder-than-usual belly while out and about with her boys. An insider told Hollywood Life this past July, “Gwen loves being a mom and, as much as she thought she was done having kids, that all changed when she met Blake. She feels like Blake is her true soulmate."
According to multiple sources, Blake and Gwen have been trying to get pregnant for quite some time. Some fans are sure Stefani has a baby on the way, while others aren't allowing themselves to get excited about a bouncing Voice coach hybrid quite yet.
It is important to mention that Gwen was wearing an extremely flowy maxi dress when everyone started buzzing that her belly may be growing. Even so, the outfit choice is out of character for the singer, who is known for rocking form-fitting clothing. Is it possible that the dress in question was donned in an attempt to conceal a blossoming abdominal region? Here's hoping!
6 Selena Gomez
Various recent reports are speculating that Selena Gomez may be pregnant with her current lover boy, The Weeknd's, baby. She's told multiple friends that he's "the one," and has been exhibiting a few behaviors lately that may indicate she's got a baby on the way.
Regarding Gomez's recent tell-tale actions, an insider recently revealed, “She’s [dropped] several hints that she’s expecting, complaining to those close to her that she’s too tired to stay out and that she feels nauseous. When she’s not nauseous, though, she’s having weird cravings, and she can’t stop eating ice cream!"
The heart wants what the heart wants. Selena may be young, but she's also crazy in love and ready to settle down. Another source close to Gomez has shared that the crooning cutie "can't wait to have a child of her own," and is constantly telling her pals "how much she wants to be a mom." The insider continued, "Her own mom had her at 16, and Selena thinks her mom did a great job, so being a young mom has never been an issue."
5 Maria Menounos
E! News host, Maria Menounos, has been open about her desire to have a child, and her struggles with infertility. She's been public about her experience with IVF treatments last year, and it's common knowledge that the star has had high hopes that her efforts will result in a baby.
Lately, Menounos has been a bit more mum about her struggles, leading us to believe she may be concealing an exciting secret until she's far enough along to feel comfortable sharing the wonderful news that she's expecting with fans. A source close to Menounos revealed, “If she was pregnant tomorrow she would love it. She really wants nothing more than to start a family. She is ready for that next stage in her life.”
Menounos definitely has babies on the brain, and recently admitted, “I was never really focused on kids. I used to just see dogs. I never saw humans. Now I see kids everywhere, and I get so excited. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I looove Kelly Clarkson's daughter, River Rose. I just wanna squeeze her!’ I’m so giddy about them.”
4 Catherine Lowe
Catherine Lowe won her hunky hubby's heart on season 17 of America's favorite reality show, The Bachelor. The adorable couple wed in a televised ceremony not long afterwards, and welcomed a baby boy, Samuel, to the world last June. The pair hasn't yet revealed anything about a baby on the way, but, in the past, have admitted that they plan to have their children close together. This leads us to believe, and hope, that their second baby is already in the works.
In an interview at Samuel's first birthday party, Catherine shared, "Sean and I have always been open about the fact that we want more children. We were like, ‘Oh, we’ll totally knock them out and we’ll be so quick and get it over with,’ just because it’s a long time of being pregnant and having a newborn."
She then added, "But we just enjoy Samuel so much right now that we haven’t nailed anything down. We didn’t really plan for him, so it’s kind of been that same thing – we’re just enjoying life together and we’ll see what happens." Sounds to us like it won't be long before the couple is revealing they're preparing to welcome a baby to the world. Fingers crossed.
3 Julianne Hough
DWTS alum Julianne Hough, wed her love, NHL pro Brooks Laich, in a lovely ceremony held close to her family home in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho this past summer. She has shared of how she knew her man was the one, "I mean, I’ve never really been the person to think about 'when you know you know'. But it was just kinda just that. When we first met each other we were like, 'And we're done.'"
The ultra-fit couple share a passion for being healthy, and Hough once revealed, "When I have kids one day I want to be in good shape and have a healthy body so that my children are healthy, and I want to be able to teach them how to do those things."
Hough is the youngest of five siblings. When asked if she hopes to have a big family like the one she was raised in, she shared, "That's kind of been our mindset for a long time, but one step at a time...We're already thinking about taking a trip to Costco and loading up in bulk. They eat a lot. Kids eat a lot!" All signs point to the fact that a baby is in this newly wed couple's very near future.
2 Mary-Kate Olsen
Fashion mogul and former Full House star Mary-Kate Olsen is an involved stepmother to her husband, French banker Olivier Sarkozy's, two children, Julien and Margot. We predict the couple is ready to take the next step and bring a new baby into their family.
Olsen has already had a lot of experience being a parent, and, reportedly, is very hands-on with her hubby's children, both of whom Sarkozy had with his ex-wife, Charlotte Bernard. Apparently, Bernard appreciates the respect Olsen shows her. A source close to the pair has revealed, "MK asks her permission about things that concern the kids. So Charlotte loves her!”
The source also revealed that, "Mary-Kate has made him a better father. She remembers all the kids' special events. She thinks he's a great dad." Sounds to us that this sophisticated couple, who wed in 2015, are more than ready to have a baby together. Who knows? It's likely that little one is already cooking in Mary-Kate's oven.
1 Taylor Schilling
The rumor mill has been churning recently regarding OITNB star Taylor Schilling. The actress, who does all she can to keep her personal life private, has everyone wondering if she has a baby on the way.
Schilling's costar on the Netflix hit, Laura Prepon, is expecting a baby girl in the near future. For some reason, fans feel like these two ladies should be as in sync in real life as the characters they play are on the show. As a matter of fact, Schilling's face has appeared a bit fuller lately, and her hair is darker that usual. Is it possible she's avoiding highlights because she doesn't want to risk bleach fumes harming her baby-to-be? Possibly.
Regarding relationships, Schilling once shared, "By default I’m a monogamist. I want a partner in crime...I really crave stability. But I don’t know what that looks like yet.” Sounds like a baby for Schilling is just what the doctor ordered. And we really hope we're right.
