It’s basically a known fact that there is absolutely nothing in this world cuter than a newborn babe (except maybe Timothée Chalamet with a moustache. Precious!). Which is why we get so extremely stoked when our fave celebs make a pregnancy announcement. Oh, the possibilities: the cute Insta posts, the matching Halloween costumes to come, the potential to be out-flexed by a literal baby who owns a Chanel purse. But mostly, we’re just super excited to have another reason to celebrate a healthy new bb! Whether it’s the Kardashian-Jenners growing their empire (seriously Kylie, when’s Stormi 2.0 coming?) or one of our faves welcoming their first bundle of joy (looking at you, Chloë), 2020 is already a year filled with new celeb babies on board.
Romee Strijd and Laurens van Leeuwen

WE’RE HAVING A BABY 💗 2 years ago I got diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for 7 years. I was devastated because being a mom and starting a family with @laurensvleeuwen is my biggest dream.. I was so scared that I would never be able to because I got told it was harder to get babies in a natural way.. I started to research PCOS and came to the conclusion that mine was not the typical pcos.. Mine was because of my body being in fight or flight mode.. which means my body was under constant stress. I never felt mentally super stressed so it was hard te understand this, but my life consisted of travelling all the time (no biorhythm), working out every day, eating super clean (restricting foods). I think I pressured my body to much, and honestly every body is so different but I think my weight was not good for my body to function properly and couldn’t handle the constant traveling. This was the point where I started to research natural healing for PCOS and came to the conclusion that I should do way less high intensity training, don’t restrict foods, be nice to myself, and take breaks when needed. I also tried some natural supplements, acupuncture and we got a place back in the Netherlands as well, so we could spend more time with Family (since im such a family person). I’m so happy and grateful to say that I got my period back last november AND that WE’RE SOON A FAMILY OF THREE ❤ ❤❤❤ & to the women trying to conceive, believe in yourself and be nice for yourself and your body and don’t let those thoughts get to you to much 😚
On May 28, Dutch model Romee Strijd shared the news that she’s expecting a baby! In an Instagram post, the Victoria’s Secret Angel shared a photo of herself and husband Laurens van Leeuwen cradling her growing bump. “WE’RE HAVING A BABY,” she captioned the photo in part.
And while a new life coming into the world is always exciting, Strijd’s announcement is extra special because, as the model revealed in her post, two years ago she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). “2 years ago I got diagnosed with PCOS after not getting my period for 7 years,” Strijd wrote. “I was devastated because being a mom and starting a family with @laurensvleeuwen is my biggest dream.. I was so scared that I would never be able to because I got told it was harder to get babies in a natural way.”
Strijd says that after figuring out that her PCOS was related to constant stress on her body, she worked on finding natural ways to help heal the condition, which included less high-intensity training, not restricting foods, being kind to herself, and taking breaks when needed. “I’m so happy and grateful to say that I got my period back last november AND that WE’RE SOON A FAMILY OF THREE.” Strijd ended her post with a message for other women trying to conceive, writing: “& to the women trying to conceive, believe in yourself and be nice for yourself and your body and don’t let those thoughts get to you to much.”

The couple—who originally met on-set of the 2013 film Her but began dating in 2018—have been engaged since July 2019.

Never looked up a girl online.”
The couple haven’t confirmed the news themselves, so we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for some *visual* confirmation (a.k.a. pics of the couple on a quarantine walk à la Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas).

Anderson revealed that Wyatt was born via surrogate, writing: “As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son’s birth. Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him.”

Anyone else notice the blue clothing theme in this pic? Considering gender reveal parties have been going way too far, we’re thinking this is a more level-headed way to say the baby will be a boy.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner

Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke
View this post on Instagram
On the road again… pregnancy after loss is a whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done. As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience. When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have. You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.
Gossip Girl and You actor Penn Badgley and his wife Domino Kirke (who happens to be a birth attendant) are expecting their first baby together! 33-year-old Badgley and 36-year-old Kirke got married back in 2017, and the road to parenthood has apparently been a tough one for the couple. Kirke wrote in an Instagram caption: “After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done.” *SO* happy for them now!

Congrats to the fam!
Nikki and Brie Bella
Talk about twinning! Twin sisters Nikki and Brie Bella—former WWE wrestlers and stars of the reality show Total Bellas—have revealed to People that they’re both expecting. The best part? They’re due a week and a half apart! “Wait, twins being pregnant at the same time?” Brie, who is married to pro wrestler Daniel Bryan and shares a two-year-old daughter with him, told the mag. “People are going to think that’s a joke. We both are shocked. People are going to think we planned it, but you can’t really plan pregnancy!”

Corden—and the crowd–were obviously thrilled. While Ferguson didn’t reveal any further details, he did confirm that the couple are having a “human.”
Ferguson and Mikita have been married since July 2013.
We can’t wait for July!
Singer Grimes has always marched to the beat of her own drum, so should we really be surprised that her pregnancy announcement was a little offbeat…or just straight up confusing? On January 7, the Canadian singer posted a nude image of herself to Instagram with the shadow of a fetus projected onto her belly.
Grime’s first post, which showed her nipples, was taken down by Instagram but in the now-deleted caption, the musician wrote: “I thought about censoring them for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is so much less feral without the nipples. Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is. Plus most of my friends told me not to post them so then I was afflicted w reverse psychology. Interrogated my shame and decided it was sum weird internalized self hated to feel uncomfortable about my body. Hope ur having a nice day!”

Fans were quick to interpret the post as a pregnancy announcement, congratulating the singer and (assumed) father of the bb, Elon Musk. Later the same day, Grimes took to Twitter to share two photos of her IRL bump, and it’s seriously gorge.
