This year brought on so many pregnancy announcements from iconic celebs including the supermodel Gigi Hadid and singing sensation Ciara. Strangely, celebrity babies seem to inspire baby fever and generate a lot of excitement so we’ve put together a list of celebrity couples who are expecting their little bundles of joy.
GIGI HADID AND ZAYN MALIK
The news about this couple expecting literally blew the Internet up! The couple has been together since 2015 and over these 5 years, they have gone through a lot of ups and downs. Gigi’s pregnancy became great news for the fans of this complicated couple.
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!
KATY PERRY AND ORLANDO BLOOM
Another star couple that shocked everyone! Katy revealed the news in a very original way as a true pop-music icon would. Not only did she announce the big news but also she drew everyone’s attention to her new music video to the single “Never Worn White.”
In the video’s final scene, Perry cups her bump that is showing through a sheer dress. Late on Twitter, the pop-star admitted she is glad she doesn’t need to be hiding her pregnancy anymore. “omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore” she wrote.
During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show In September last year, her fiancé, Orlando Bloom, shared that the couple was looking forward to having children together Katy and Orlando were first spotted together at the beginning of 2016 at the afterparty of Golden Globes.
The two were flirting and dancing together, and many started talking about their possible relationship. A few months later, Katy posted a picture on Instagram, confirming the rumors. However, a year later the couple unexpectedly broke up, and yet, their hearts found their ways to each other again.
To the fans’ joy, they got back together only a few months later. They only appeared together in public in 2018 when they attended Gala for the Global Ocean in Monte Carlo together and looked adorable. Last year the couple announced their engagement on Valentine’s Day! We’re looking forward to their wedding and to the birth of their baby!
LEIGHTON MEESTER AND ADAM BRODY
These two have fulfilled the millennials’ dream, having become a couple in real life. The stars of The O.C. and Gossip Girl fell in love! Isn’t that the crossover we all dreamt about 10 years ago? Leighton and Adam started dating in 2013 after meeting on the set of The Oranges 2 years before that.
At the end of that same year, the couple announced their engagement, and they got married soon after! Despite the incredible popularity they have always managed to keep their relationship private. Brody told GQ last year, that he and his wife are homebodies and do not want to monetize their popularity.
“She’s more inherently private than I am. I don’t seek publicity but if I’m sitting next to you on the subway, I’ll tell you everything about me.”
The pair welcomed their first child, Arlo Day, into the world on Aug. 4, 2015. Leighton told Refinery39 why she doesn’t often talk about Arlo: “I think the perception is: You’re an ingenue, or you’re an icon, or you’re a mom. There’s no in-between.”
In April, Meester was spotted out with her belly showing meaning the family of three will soon be four! The pair haven’t said anything about the status of Meester’s pregnancy yet. Of course, we don’t expect these two to tell us about their child a lot, but we hope everything will go smoothly!
