14. EMMA ROBERTS AND GARRETT HEDLUND 

In June of 2020, US Weekly reported that Emma and her boyfriend Garrett will become first-time parents soon. The couple started off as friends and took things to the next level after Emma ended her 5-year relationship with American Horror Story actor Evan Peters.

Emma and Garrett were first rumored to be dating after the two were seen holding hands. At the time, the couple was still enjoying a casual stage of the relationship. The pregnancy was confirmed through an Instagram comment exchange between Emma's mom Kelly Cunningham and a fan.

Fans took to Kelly's Instagram to congratulate her and the stars' mom responded by saying, "Thank you very much. Very excited." The couple has been keeping a very low profile so no news on when their bundle of joy is due and we haven't seen the baby bump just yet. 


On August 31, Emma confirmed her pregnancy when she posted a series of baby bump pictures. What's even sweeter is that the photos featured her boyfriend Garret Hedlund. The actress also revealed that the couple is expecting a boy as she captioned the photos: "Me..and my two favorite guys." Adorable! Congratulations to the happy couple.

12. ROONEY MARA AND JOAQUIN PHOENIX

Rooney and Joaquin keep their relationship quite private but rumors of the pregnancy began when she was seen making a Mother's Day delivery to her sister while sporting a baby bump. In May, the actress was reportedly 6 months along in her pregnancy so the pair may be welcoming the baby in just a few weeks.

The couple met on the set of the movie Mary Magdalene. At first, Joaquin was under the impression that Rooney didn't fancy him at all however, it turns out she was just shy. Joaquin confessed that Rooney is the only woman he's ever searched on the Internet.

"We were just friends, email friends. I'd never done that. Never looked up a girl online."

After 3 years of courtship, Mara and Phoenix became engaged in 2019. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress was seen rocking a huge diamond on her left hand. With the couple being so low key, they will probably keep the birth of their first child very hush-hush.

It was first revealed by TMZ who noticed a tiny belly on the supermodel's picture on IG. Gigi shared a cute picture from the celebration of her 25th birthday with her sister Bella, and of course, with Zayn Malik.

TMZ announced the news April 28, saying she was about 20 weeks into her pregnancy. However, the model only said so officially later. When Gigi was five months pregnant, she admitted  her pregnancy on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon show:

 “Obviously we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,” Gigi said. “We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.”


The baby is to be due in September, according to Gigi's mom, Yolanda Hadid. The future grandmother also added that they weren't expecting the public to find out this news so soon. Apparently, Gigi and Zayn are expecting a girl, and we can only imagine how beautiful she's going to be!

10. PENN BADGLEY AND DOMINO KIRKE

Another Gossip Girl star who is expecting a child soon. The star of YOU and his wife since 2017 are expecting their first child together after enduring two miscarriages. In February, Domino posted on IG and revealed the difficulties she had to go through.

"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" she wrote.


Kirke, who is already a mother to a son called Cassius with an ex-partner, said she was now "back to business" and wrote that she has now learned so much more from working in the pregnancy field for 10 years. In addition to her career as a musician, Kirke has been certified as a doula for many years.

One of her most recognizable clients is Amy Schumer. Kirke's passion for birth education also inspired her to found Carriage House, a pregnancy care center in New York and Los Angeles that offers resources, education, and doula services to new and expecting mothers.

“I was always interested in becoming a midwife, then at my own birth I didn’t get the support I’d hoped for, and that changed everything. That’s why I became a doula," Kirke told New York Family.


Penn and Domino are very private about their romance but we know they have been married twice! They got married in February of 2017 in an intimate courthouse ceremony in Brooklyn (where they currently reside). Truly romantic.

Half a year after they got married in Upstate New York, and their celebrity friends attended their wedding. Domino is due to give birth to their newborn very soon, so it's about time we start expecting the news from these two. Now, let's take a look at the last couple on the list.


9. NICKI MINAJ AND KENNETH PETTY

Young Money is about to become a mother. That’s right – Nicki Minaj is pregnant, a year after her marriage to Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty! In a spectacular Instagram photoshoot, the singer revealed her baby bump with a caption that just read #preggers. As you can expect, the photo has received over 9.5 million likes in under 24 hours.

With the latest news, Mrs. Petty is sitting pretty. Though the news came as a surprise to many fans (despite rumors doing the rounds earlier in 2020), Minaj has been vocal about wanting to be a mother for many years. In fact, the singer told Complex back in 2014:

“I feel like I was put here to be a mother. I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order.”

Everything worked out in her favor as she got married and 1 year later, she's expecting! Minaj’s pregnancy announcement may not have had a due date, but judging by the size of her baby bump, we can expect a baby Petty to be welcomed to the world soon, and we can’t wait!


8. VANESSA MORGAN AND MICHAEL KOPECH

The couple is starting a new journey in their lives and we're here for it! The Riverdale actress announced the news of her and her husband Michael Kopech's pregnancy in an IG post on July 24, when shared the couple's gender reveal party for their first child together. The pair is expecting a boy!


Vanessa shared that she wanted to keep her pregnancy as private as possible but she realized that the public would find out regardless and it would be better for her to announce the news herself. The actress wrote: 

“ I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January 💙 .”

The parents-to-be met a few years ago through social media. Morgan described seeing Michael on her explore page on IG and immediately thinking he was her dream guy. She then followed him on Twitter and he followed her back. Soon after, the couple began communicating via DMs before they finally decided to meet in June 2018.


2 years later, the couple made things official when they tied the knot in the company of their closest family and friends in Homestead, Florida. Some of the cast of Riverdale were in attendance such as Skeet Ulric, Drew Tanner, and Madelaine Petsch.

Vanessa and Michael's pregnancy announcement comes 6 months after their dreamy wedding. The actress is overjoyed and also shared a sweet message to her son: "I can't believe how much growth and strength you've already given me as your mom. It's like God knew I needed you, my angel."
