Award-winning pregnant celebrities and new mums

As a pregnant Claire Danes wins an award, we round up our top pregnant celebs and new mums who've picked up a gong


Claire Danes

Last night pregnant Claire Danes won the Individual Achievement in Drama Award for Homeland at the Television Critics Association Awards.


In celebration of mum-to-be Claire, we’ve rounded-up our favourite pregnant celebrities and new mums who’ve also scooped prestigious awards…


Natalie Portman

Who can forget Natalie Portman in that deep purple gown at the 2011 Oscars. Natalie, who was 5 months pregnant with son Aleph, won Best Actress for her role in Black Swan.



Pregnant Adele won 12 Billboard Awards in May 2012, including Top Artist and Top Female Artist. The singer wasn’t present at the awards and recent reports that her baby is due in September suggests Adele would have been 5 months along. Perhaps Adele didn’t fancy maternity wear on the carpet?


Catherine Zeta-Jones

Back on our screen in Rock of Ages, Catherine Zeta-Jones attended the Oscars 8 months pregnant in 2003. As if picking up an award for Best Supporting Actress wasn’t enough, Catherine performed All That Jazz at the ceremony, too!


Meryl Streep

In 1983 Meryl Streep took home a Best Actress Oscar for Sophie’s Choice. While Meryl’s bump was clearly on show, the actress didn’t mention her pregnancy at all during her speech.


Rachel Weiz

Rachel Weisz was 6 months pregnant when she picked up Best Supporting Actress at the 2006 Oscars for her role in The Constant Gardener. No wonder she’s Bond star Daniel Craig’s leading lady now!


Angelina Jolie

Rather fittingly, Angelina Jolie won an Oscar in 2006 for Best Fight in Mr & Mrs Smith one month after the birth of daughter Shiloh, later attending the Cannes premiere of Kung Fu Panda pregnant. Take that red carpet!


Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys picked up Best Female Artist at the BET awards in 2010 before peforming a whole melody of her hits, while pregnant. All in a rocking pink get up. You go, girl!



OK, Beyonce wasn’t exactly picking up an award, but performing and announcing her pregnancy all in one go at the 2011 VMA awards is pretty impressive. The singing senstation picked up Best Female R&B artist at The BET Awards in July, just 5 months after the birth of Blue Ivy, too.


Reese Witherspoon

We’re giving Reese her very own award for inspired red carpet antics. Not only did Reese own the red carpet at Cannes 2012 in a glittery blue floor length gown, she showed off a sizeable baby bump, having not even confirmed her pregnancy. Inspired!
