One of the few silver linings of 2020: All of the new celebrity babies. The world was blessed with Willa Jonas-Tuner, Daisy Dove Bloom, Win Harrison Wilson...I really could go on and on. So while 2020 may have hit a little snag (and I mean little snag in the most sarcastic way), that didn't stop Hollywood from expanding their families. Otherwise known as: While you were attempting to bake sourdough bread at home in quarantine, these A-listers were getting busy. Thanks to pregnancy announcements from celebs like Kelly Rowland, Hilary Duff, Princess Eugenie, Mandy Moore, and more, 2021 is starting to not look so bad. Since we all love to get lost in the hype of baby fever, I made a list of all the celebrity pregnancies we're looking forward to in the new year.
Henry Golding and Liv Lo
The Crazy Rich Asians actor announced in an Instagram post that he and his wife, Liv Lo, are expecting and that "2021 is already looking brighter" as a result. Lo shared an announcement of her own on Instagram, writing, "Such immense joy this little one has brought us already. Now we get to share it with you💕We love you!✨," along with a photo of Golding gently touching her bump.
Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard
In an essay for the digital October issue of Vogue, the model revealed she was pregnant with the couple's first child together.
In the essay, she explained why they are prolonging knowing the sex of their baby, writing, "When my husband and I tell friends that I'm pregnant, their first question after 'Congratulations' is almost always 'Do you know what you want?' We like to respond that we won't know the gender until our child is 18 and that they'll let us know then."
Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner
Multiple outlets have reported that Kloss is pregnant with the pair's first child, though the couple haven't confirmed the news. A source close to the couple told PEOPLE, "Karlie is overjoyed to be expecting her first child in 2021. She will be the most amazing mother."
