It’s a truth universally acknowledged that we love babies. How can you not? From Mindy Kaling’s matching PJ pics with her adorable daughter, Katherine, to the Kardashian-Jenner fam’s rapidly expanding brood of future influencers, we seriously can’t get enough of Hollywood’s tiniest celebs. And this year will be no different. So far, we have Kim Kardashian West’s newest arrival, Keira Knightley’s soon-to-be-born second child and singer Cassie just shared an update about her growing family on Instagram. It looks like 2019 is already shaping up to be a baby-filled year—and we can’t wait.
Here’s everything we know about Cassie’s impending arrival, plus all the other 2019 celeb babies that we’re dying to meet (at least via Instagram)!
R&B singer Cassie (a.k.a. Cassandra Ventura) is adding a new title to her name: Mommy! The singer, who previously dated rapper Diddy for over a decade, announced her pregnancy on Instagram, sharing a series of photos of herself wither her boyfriend, Alex Fine, posing in a car. “Can’t wait to meet our baby girl. Love You Always and Forever.” Fine, who’s a personal trainer, posted photos from the same shoot to his own Instagram, sharing seriously sweet letters to both his GF and his unborn daughter. The couple has been dating since December 2018, when Cassie made them Insta official. Their relationship came on the heels of Cassie’s breakup with Diddy.
The Reynolds brood is expanding! Actress Blake Lively arrived at the NY premiere of husband Ryan Reynold’s film Detective Pikachu with an exciting +1—a baby bump! Walking the red carpet alongside her hubby, Lively showed off her bump in an on-trend yellow dress.
The duo are already parents to two daughters, James, 4, and Inez, 2.
We can’t wait for the baby bump to make its Insta debut (and for all the inevitable social media banter between the parents-to-be)!
In another red carpet debut, British actress Keira Knightley wordlessly announced the arrival of her second child while attending a Chanel cocktail party in Paris, before appearing alongside husband James Righton at the Chanel 2020 Cruise Show.
Knightley and musician Righton are already parents to daughter Edie, who was born in 2015.
Feminist and Slutwalk organizer Amber Rose is pregnant with her second child. This week, Rose and her partner Alexander Edwards, a VP at Def Jam, announced that they are expecting their first child together. “@ae4preident and I are super excited to announce that we have a sweet little baby boy on the way!,” Rose posted to her Instagram. We bet Sebastian is going to be the coolest big brother to his new baby sibling.
The author and The Hills alum welcomed her first baby, Liam, with husband William Tell in July 2017, and now it looks like that little dude is getting a sibling. No word on the due date yet, but we’ll hopefully get just as many cute-as-hell pics via her Instagram as we do of Liam.
Kim Kardashian West
The Wests will soon be a family of six! Kim and Kanye are set to welcome a new baby boy via surrogate. While People first reported the news in January, the mom of three confirmed the impending arrival on the March 31 season premier of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, revealing in the episode that she wasn’t sure the pregnancy would actually happen. Speaking to the The New York Times in an article posted the day before the season premiere, Kardashian West said she was busy preparing the baby’s nursery. “I’m frantically trying to get the room ready,” she said. “It’s madness, but the best madness.” Start your bets on the name!
The model/natural beauty guru and husband Evan Spiegel are welcoming another baby to the brood. The Australian model debuted her growing bump on March 30 when she stepped out at the Gruner & Jahr Spa Awards. The mama-to-be shared the news on her Instagram, posting a photo of herself on the red carpet alongside a pregnant woman, heart and baby angel emoji. Kerr is already a mom to son Flynn—from her first marriage to actor Orlando Bloom— and Hart, her first child with Spiegel. In a statement to People, the couple’s rep said, “Miranda, Evan, Flynn and Hart are looking forward to welcoming the newest member to their family.”
