Some are first time mums. Others are on their second (or third, fourth or fifth) round. So which of our favourite celebrities are expecting little ones? And who has been showcasing their growing bumps via social media?
We’ve rounded up our favourite mummas-to-be and the Instaperfect pictures of their growing bellies.
It’s shaping up to be a big year in the land of celebrity babies with many famous women announcing the arrival of their little ones in 2016.
Geelong AFL footy star Tom Hawkins and his wife, Emma Hawkins are expecting their own little kitten. Emma shared their happy news (and two very happy faces) via Instagram only days ago to make the baby news official.
Another American star to share her baby news recently is former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl who is expecting with hubby Josh Kelley. The pair are parents to daughters, Naleigh and Adalaide, whom they adopted in 2009 and 2012.
Next on our Aussie celebrity baby boom list is Bec Judd who is expecting twin boys, taking the Judd-children family tally up to four. The twin revelation was an unexpected surprise for Bec and her ex-footballer hubby, Chris Judd as it was for the rest of the world.
Bec has been sharing updates of her growing bump via Instagram – including this gem with another glam footy WAG Nadia Bartel – and even shared a candid shot of her with her sister, who is also expecting around the same time.

Blake recently shared a cute story about her laid-back stance on parenting that had us all loving her even more.
You’ve got to love this refreshing take on maternity fashion from House alum, Olivia Wilde, expecting baby number two with fiancé, Jason Sudeikis. Her dress has a window so her baby can hear Beyonce’s speech at a fashion industry awards night! We love it! The pair are already parents to Otis. I’m putting my baby name bets on right now – Milo.
