There are so many pregnant celebs these days, it can be tricky to keep track of who’s expecting what, with who and when.
But who’s still expecting and who’s actually given birth this year?
Here’s our run down of the famous people who’ve welcomed little ones in 2017 – plus what they’ve named their babies…
Hollyoaks‘ Rachel Adedeji (December 2017)
26-year-old actress Rachel has become a mum for the 1st time!
Lillian Oluremi Adedeji-Finegan was born on 21 December 2017, a week earlier than she was due.
“Merry Christmas guys!! I was blessed to have received my Christmas present a whole week earlier than expected,” Rachel wrote on Instagram.
“We welcomed baby Adedeji-Finegan on the 21st of December at 5:38am weighing a healthy 8lbs 14oz ?????”
Rachel and her partner Jason debuted Lilian in OK! magazine in January 2018.
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias (December 2017)
Talk about a surprise birth announcement ?
Tennis icon Anna and popstar Enrique have added 2 new additions to their family: twin babies named Nicholas and Lucy!
It would seem Anna was really keen to keep her bump away from the spotlights. Fans were also annoyed that she’d changed her style of Instagram shot to disguise a bump.
Anna and Enrique have been together since 2001, after Anna appeared in the music video for Enrique’s single Escape. The couple are very private, so not much is known about their relationship.
Katie Piper (December 2017)

The star and charity founder revealed the happy news on Instagram. Read the full story here.

38-year-old US actress and comedian Mindy confirmed she was expecting in August 2017 ?
She spoke about her pregnancy news for the first time in an interview with TODAY, saying:
“[I’m] really excited. It’s so unknown to me. I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling.”
E! News reports that Mindy gave birth on the 15 December 2017, to a baby daughter, whose name is Katherine Kaling.
The Mindy Project star has yet to share the news herself on social media, and so far has chosen not to reveal the identity of her baby’s father publicly.
Jamelia (December 2017)
Surprise! Jamelia’s given birth, after her shock announcement that she was 6 months pregnant in October 2017.
It seems the 36-year-old Superstar singer (and Loose Women fave) had a traumatic end to her pregnancy, which fortunately resulted in a healthy birth.
In her announcement post, she wrote on Instagram:
“❤ 13 weeks after being told to prepare ourselves for the worst ?
“On the 13th of December, after drawing on and surrounding ourselves with every ounce of faith & positivity we could find, we have been abundantly blessed with the absolute best
“God. Is. Oh. So. Good. ☺️ #WeMadeIt ❤?? #SoGrateful #MiraclesDoHappen ☺️?❤❤”

“She is absolutely perfect & we are totally in love with her. I had her 3.5 weeks ago on Sunday 5th November at 6.56am.
“She weighed 7lbs 14oz and we named her Clementine Saskia Collins. ??#newprincess#mysecretbubble“
We have to say we love the somewhat fruity name choice ?

The couple already share a daughter, named Sophia, born in February 2016.
Though there’s no real information yet – the couple are famously private – we’ll update as soon as her name’s been revealed.
Given that Sophia is such a classic – alleged to be the most popular girl’s name in the world – we reckon we can expect something similarly traditional.
Ferne McCann (November 2017)
Ferne McCann has welcomed her 1st child, a baby girl, a week earlier than expected.
Taking to Instagram to share the lovely news, the 27-year-old This Morning presenter gushed:

Revealing the happy news on Instagram, Matthew gushed:
“To my Newborn Child, Revel James Makai Morrison: Your Mama and Papa got this!! Trust in us to guide and protect you always.
“To lay the tracks so your choo choo train will run smoothly throughout this world?. You will have all the tools to soar!

Wow, check out that name: Revel James Makai ?

On 16 October, American actress Jaime Pressly gave birth to twins.
Jaime, best known for her work on the sitcom My Name Is Earl, took to Instagram to reveal her twins were both boys, and that she’d given them the names Leo and Lenon.

Something a bit different. We love it ???
Call The Midwife‘s Helen George (October 2017?)

Jenny announced her 2nd pregnancy on Instagram with this, shall we say, slightly unusual announcement pic, which features what looks like a nasal aspirator.
She wrote: “This is how I told my son babies are made. #numbertwo #nosefrida @fridababy #teetsreincarnated”
Jason echoed his wife’s sentiment on his own Instagram page shortly afterwards.
Jenny then went on to reveal that the couple’s 3-year-old son, Sid, understood that mum had something growing in her tum, but was frustrated that he couldn’t see the baby’s face.

She and husband Marcus Mumford, of Mumford and Sons fame (obviously), have been married in 2012, and also share a little girl named Evelyn.

The couple already share son Callum, who was born 11 weeks premature.
Sarra unexpectedly opened up about her baby joy in an interview with Lorraine Kelly, announcing her pregnancy totally out of the blue.
She admitted the couple were anxious about having baby no 2, due to the worry they’d experienced when Callum was intensive care after his birth.
“I would never have thought that I would have ventured down the road again,” Sarra said. “But actually time’s a great healer and actually we’re so excited about it.
“The point is, prematurity or having a sick baby, it’s unexpected for most people. So that’s the shock of it. It might not happen again, but we’ll see.”
Fortunately, Chloe arrived safe and sound ?
Good Morning Britain‘s Laura Tobin (September 2017)

“Little Charlotte came a little earlier than planned and she is being very well looked after in hospital,” co-host Susanna Reid added.

We hope the new fam will be home soon ?

Congrats from us ???
Mark Zuckerberg (August 2017)
Facebook founder and CEO Mark has revealed that his wife Priscilla Chan has given birth to a baby girl.
Her name is certainly inspired by the month of her birth – they’ve called her August!
Quite the contrast, too, to the slightly more traditional name they bestowed upon their 1st daughter, Maxima ?
During the latter stages of pregnancy, Mark also announced on (Facebook-owned) Instagram that he’d be taking 2 months of paternity leave.
“Our new daughter is coming soon so I’m planning to take two months of paternity leave,” he began.
“I’m looking forward to bonding with our new little one and taking Max on adventures. I’m pretty sure the office will still be standing when I get back.”
How fortunate they are to be able to afford those precious first few months together ?

She shared the news on Instagram, writing:
“Ryan, Blakely and I are absolutely over the moon to announce that the new addition to our little family has arrived safely and in a perfect package on Tuesday 29th August 2017 at 1:34am. ❤️ #ThreeBecomesFour ????”
No word yet as to whether she’s had a boy, or a girl, or what the name will be.
Laura and Jason Kenny (August 2017)
Can winning countless medals at the Olympics compare to the excitement (and exhaustion) of first time parenthood?
Let’s ask Laura and Jason Kenny, who both worked hard to win (several) cycling golds at the Rio 2016 Olpymics, and who’ve just become mum and dad to a newborn baby boy.
“Welcome to the world little Albert Louie Kenny. 23/08/17 8lb 12.5oz 22.44 ?” Laura wrote beside a family snap, featuring Albert in his car seat.

Reports say that US actor Josh and British model Tamsin welcomed their 2nd child together in August 2017.
The couple welcomed their 1st born at the end of 2015.

Cristiano Ronaldo (June 2017)
The Sun first reported in March that famed footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was to become a dad of twins. Now, it’s been revealed that he’s already welcomed the newborns!
There are widespread reports suggesting that the twins, said to be named Eva and Mateo, were born via a surrogate on Thursday 8 June.
Cristiano himself confirmed the new arrivals on Instagram 3 weeks later, sharing an Instagram photo of himself holding the newborns for the very first time on 29 June.
“So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of my life ?❤” he gushed in the caption.
Cristiano had been unable to meet his newborns until now, due to his football team, Portugal, playing in the Confederations Cup.
“I was in the service of the national team, as always, body and soul, even though my two children were born,” he wrote on Facebook, in his native language, Portuguese.
“Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve the main sporting objective that we wanted, but I am sure we will continue to give joy to the Portuguese.
“The President of the Portuguese Football Federation and the national picker have today had an attitude that has touched me and I will not forget.
“I’m very happy to finally be with my children for the first time.”
32-year-old Cristiano has never publicly revealed who his 7-year-old son Cristiano Jr’s mum is – and previously said in his documentary that he felt having a father was enough for his son.
So, we don’t expect the identity of the twins’ mother to be announced any time soon.
Big congrats ?
