Jessica Simpson, 31, only has a handful of days until her due date (20 April) arrives and here at MFM we’re on baby tenderhooks.
Fashion Star mentor Jess announced her pregnancy back in October when she posted a scary Halloween pic of herself dressed up as a mummy (get it?!), displaying a baby bump.
Since then Jess has been keeping us up to date on her latest pregnancy news. She’s spoken about gushing fluids, how she feels like a blob and has even stripped off for a naked photoshoot.
More recently, in an interview with US magazine OK! Jess revealed, “I can’t wait to just hold her in my arms. At this point, I am really ready.” Aww!
Peaches Geldof has less than two weeks to go until she and fiancé Thomas Cohen welcome their first baby.
Back in January, the daughter of rocker Sir Bob Geldof announced she’s expecting a boy and had already chosen the name Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof.
Peaches, 23, said she reckoned Astala, who is due on her late mum Paula Yates’ birthday, will be a little heartbreaker after catching a glimpse of him on a 4D scan.
X Factor veteran Stacey Solomon is said to be due in about three weeks time. The soon-to-be mum-of-two has been working hard throughout her pregnancy and was busy recording Bedtime Stories for CBeebies while seven months pregnant.
Stacey, 22, revealed that she won’t be tying the knot with fiancé Aaron Barnham until after she’s lost her baby weight.
Stacey also hit the headlines when she was papped smoking. The mum-to-be later took to Twitter and said she felt she’d let people down.
Chantelle Houghton & Alex Reid
Chantelle Houghton, 28, and Alex Reid, 36, were set to begin IVF treatment when Chantelle fell pregnant naturally. The pair, who got engaged last Autumn after Alex proposed on live TV, are expecting a baby girl next month.
After seeing her baby on a 4D scan Chatelle told the Daily Mirror, “It was amazing. She’s so cute! She’s the absolute image of Alex. He can’t see it though. Even the lady doing the scan was like, ‘Oh my God, she looks so much like you’!”
The couple spoke openly in an interview with New! magazine about how the baby bump hasn’t got in the way of their sex life, and that Alex could even have plans to drink Chantelle’s breast milk.
Rumours that Maggie Gyllenhaal and husband Peter Sarsgaard were expecting their second child together emerged back in November.
Maggie, 34, manged to keep her pregnancy under wraps for four months and has also remained tight-lipped over her exact due date.
If rumours are to be believed, Hollywood actress Maggie and hubby Peter, who are already parents to 5-year-old daughter Ramona, are expecting another little girl.
Kourtney Kardashian is due to give birth to her second baby in May… or June… or, well, it seems to vary depending on whose reporting! We’ve yet to hear any exact date or month.
Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick, who are already parents to 2-year-old Mason, are expecting a little girl, and have apparently been jotting down possible baby names on Kourt’s mobile phone.
Talking about her pregnancy in an interview with People magazine, Kourtney, 32, said, “I feel really good … [though] this time I had a little more morning sickness. I think it’s a little bit harder being pregnant when you have a toddler I’m chasing after. Last time I could nap more.”
American Pie star and mum-of-one Alyson Hannigan is expecting her second child with hubby Alexis Denisof. Alyson is allegedly due within the next few months.
Alyson may have accidentally revealed the sex of her baby when she appeared on the Rachael Ray Show in the USA. The 38-year-old actress referred to her unborn baby as a ‘she’ before backtracking and then bursting into laughter. “The other night, she – this, you know,” she said. Oops!
Take That star Mark Owen and wife Emma Ferguson only have three months to go until they welcome their third child.
Pop star Mark, 40, announced the news last week and revealed that Emma, 35, is already six months along!
Mark shared his baby news on the official Take That website. “Emma and I are delighted to confirm reports that we are nearly six months pregnant and expecting our third child in the summer,” wrote Mark.
Mark and Emma are already parents to son Elwood, 6, and daughter Willow Rose, 4.
Remember Saved by the Bell? One of its stars, Elizabeth Berkley, is due to give birth this summer.
Last month Elizabeth and hubby of eight years Greg Lauren announced they’re expecting their first child.
“We are so excited to share this moment and special news,” they tweeted. “In life there are moments you cherish forever and this is one of them.”
Dad-of-three and X Factor judge Gary Barlow announced on Twitter that he and wife Dawn are expecting their fourth child together. “My wife and I are expecting our 4th child #Anotherowngoal,” he tweeted.
“Next goal ‘Celebrity Dad of the Year’ #moveasideandre,” Gaz cheekily added.
The baby is rumoured to be due on 31 August.
Here at MFM HQ we reckon there must be something in the water as another Take That star is set to become a new dad.
Robbie Williams is the third boyband, er, we mean manband member to be expecting a baby.
Robbie, 38 announced his and wife Ayda’s, 32, baby news on his website saying, “We had sex! It works!”
Since then the gossip mill has been in overdrive. It was rumoured that the pair were expecting a girl and they’d decided to name her Roberta! Robbie then took to his blog to put all baby sex rumours to bed.
“To fill you in we don’t know if it’s a girl or a boy. We’ve no names yet either. Maybe you can give us a few ideas,” wrote Robbie.
Although Ayda’s due date has yet to be confirmed, it could be around September.
No hiding it now, Sienna!
After Kelly Hoppen confirmed her step-daughter’s pregnancy, Sienna Miller took her time to open up.
Last month the first-time mum-to-be, who’s dating fellow actor Tom Sturridge, told Vogue, “It’s all progressing nicely and it’s very exciting.”
The super-chic actress, 30, who is said to be due in the summer, admitted she’s developed sweet-toothed cravings during her pregnancy.
