Seems like the year 2019 is a good year for birth. So many celebs have welcomed beautiful babies. From Gordon Ramsey to Claire Holt to Jessica Simpson to Catelynn Baltierra to Andy Cohan to Derek Jeter, and so many more!
The thing is, it’s not over yet.
That’s right. There are still many celebrities expecting this year. Some, this is their first child, but for others, this is them adding to their already large family. A lot of the celebrities expecting have been pretty open about it from the start. They announced it soon as it was safe, and have even told the gender. But then for some, they like their privacy. Some celebs tend to wait to reveal the baby until after they tell their friends and family first and celebrate privately. They like to do it on their own terms and even then, they might keep details to themselves, like their due date, the gender, or the name they picked out for their little bun in the oven.
Either way, we are super excited for the day their little one will make their grand entrance into the world. Seeing a celebrity turn into a mother or father in front of our eyes is super special.
Here is a list of 15 celebrities who are expected to give birth sometime this year (and five who are getting ready to pop any day now!).
