Here are all the famous mums-to-be and dads-to-be for 2019…
Alesha Dixon (announced May 2019)
Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon announced her pregnancy live on air on the show during the semi-finals. Alesha is already mum to Azura Sienna and will now be having a little brother or sister for her – with husband Azuka Ononye.
She told fellow judge David Walliams that she is super happy about the news – and there were lots of messages all over social media regarding the way she did it so publicly.
“That’s a hell of a reveal! #aleshadixon #bgt #BritainsGotTalent.” said one fan. We couldn’t agree more…
Keira Knightley (announced May 2019)
The actress appeared at a Chanel cocktail party in a sheer pale pink dress that revealed a baby bump: this will be Keira’s second child with singer James Righton.
Currently, they have 4-year-old daughter Edie, who will be big sis when the new baby arrives.
Blake Lively (announced May 2019)
Hollywood actress Blake Lively was spotted having a laugh at a recent public event with husband Ryan Reynolds, wearing a figure-hugging dress that clearly reveals a baby bump (see the full length pic on our Blake Lively family facts page).
The baby will be the third for the couple, who already have 2 daughters together, James and Ines.
Rachel Riley (announced May 2019)
Countdown presenter Rachel Riley announced her first pregnancy with partner Pasha Kovalev on social media, saying:
“Pash and I have a conundrum for you…you have till December to work it out! We’re over the moon excited.”
Days later she was spotted looking super happy at her first public appearance since the news visiting Old Trafford to watch Manchester United play Bayern Munich.
Lacey Turner (announced February 2019)
Lacey, who plays Stacey Fowler in EastEnders, announced her pregnancy with husband Matt Kay a few months ago, and shared this gorgeous baby shower pic weeks later.
The actress has spoken openly about having 2 miscarriages previously, and told OK! magazine: “I can’t wait to nurture our baby – we’ve dreamed of having a family for so long. When you’ve lost babies all you care about is the heartbeat.”
Myleene Klass (announced February 2019)
Myleene Klass is pregnant with her 3rd child – her 1st with boyfriend Simon Motson.
The 40-year-old radio presenter and kidswear designer announced the happy news with a simple heart emoji, and this lovely bump snap, on Instagram.
No word yet on the new arrival’s sex or due date, but we can only imagine that Myleene’s daughters Hero, 7, and Ava, 11, are thrilled to become older sisters!
Big congrats to Myleene and Simon 💜
Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez (Announced February 2019)
Strictly Come Dancing lovebirds Gemma and Gorka are expecting!
Former Hollyoaks actress and fitness fan Gemma, 34, and her professional dancer partner Gorka, 28, have shared their happy pregnancy news on Instagram.
In quite a creative way, too – using Gemma’s beloved dogs, Norm and Ollie.
“And what Amazing big brothers they will be!” Gemma wrote beside the above pic. “Myself & Gorks are beyond excited and happy and feel incredibly blessed to be meeting our new family member later this year. Baby Marquez!!! We love you loads already ❤️🤰 @gorka_marquez”
Gorka added: “@glouiseatkinson Thank you for the greatest gift in life. Myself and Gem are beyond thrilled to be welcoming our new family member later this year! Baby Marquez 🤰🏼♥️ Norm and ollie can’t wait to start their big brother duties 🐶🐶”
Gemma and Gorka first met during Strictly Come Dancing 2017 – where he was partnered up with Alexandra Burke! Their relationship was confirmed in early 2018.
Abbey Clancy and Peter Crouch (Announced February 2019)
“When a hat trick just won’t do!” wrote Abbey Clancy on Instagram in a stunning pregnancy announcement.
Yep, the 32-year-old model and her footballer husband Peter Crouch are expecting baby no 4. They already share 7-year-old daughter Sophia, 3-year-old daughter Liberty and 1-year-old son Johnny.
If we were to guess that Abbey’s just passed the 12-week mark, which is when we typically see pregnancy announcements, that’d give her a July/August due date!
However, she’s keeping her exact due date under wraps for now – as is her right. Big congrats to the growing family 🎉
Deliciously Ella (Due August 2019)
Plant-based food blogger and Instagram star Ella Mills (best known as Deliciously Ella) has announced she is pregnant.
She and her husband Matthew Mills are due to welcome their 1st baby in August 2019.
Ella took to Instagram to share the news with her loyal 1.4 million-strong fan base, writing happily: “Baby Mills coming in August ❤️❤️❤️😱😱😱🎉🎉🎉✨✨✨🤰🏻🤰🏻🤰🏻
“We’re completely over the moon and just feel like the luckiest people in the world 💖”
Jenson Button (Announced January 2019)
British racing driver and Formula One star Jenson, 38, is set to become a 1st time dad. His fiancee, model Brittny Ward, is pregnant.
“Brittny & I are Delighted to announce the new edition to the family currently having his first seat!” he wrote on Instagram to 906,000 fans. “Look how comfy he looks! 😍👶🏼#babybutton”
It would appear Jenson’s going to have a baby boy – if the use of ‘his’ and ‘he’ is intentional. So, that would put Brittny, at a guess, at about 16 weeks pregnant, at least.
We have to say, #babybutton is the cutest hashtag ever. Many congrats to the parents-to-be 🎉
Jessica and Tom Goodman-Hill
Call The Midwife and Baptiste star Jessica Raine is expecting her 1st child with husband, fellow actor Tom Goodman-Hill.
Jessica and Tom kept the news low key, but Jessica’s nearly-there baby bump gave her away at a Baptiste Q&A session.
“I was a bit tired but the worrying thing for production was there was a car race and stunt and I neglected to tell them I was pregnant when I took the job,” she told The Mirror.
“I broke the news and everyone was amazing. We had to work out how to do a car chase without me being in any danger.
“Also my character is quite hard and being pregnant is quite emotional so it worked well. I was interested most in food on this job!”
Tom, 50, has 2 children from his previous marriage to Kerry Bradley. He and Jessica, 37, married in 2015.
Amy Joy Williams MBE (Due Summer 2019)
Olympic champion and 2018 MadeForMums Toy Awards judge Amy is pregnant with baby no 2.
She shared the news on Instagram, on 4 January, 2018, joking: “Can’t blame the mince pies and Christmas pud for this tummy anymore!!
“Little sister or brother on the way for Oscar early summer. 🥰🤰🏼”
You can see from the pics that Amy’s showing a little bit, and that soon-to-be older-bro Oscar is happy as larry. We bet dad Craig Ham is delighted, too!
Beth Tweddle MBE (Due May 2019)
Yay! Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle, 33, has revealed she’s pregnant with her 1st child.
She and her husband Andy announced the happy news on Instagram, with Beth writing alongside a sweet pic: “Really excited to share the news that Andy and I are expecting our first child in May 2019.”
Beth won bronze for Team GB at the 2012 Olympics in London, for her stunning gymnastics work on the uneven bars. Now, she owns her own company, Beth Tweddle Gymnastics, which offers children lessons.
We can imagine she’s super excited for the greatest challenge yet: becoming a mum 😊Big congrats!
Jordan Pickford and Megan Davidson (Announced November 2018)
So, 24-year-old football star Jordan Pickford and his fiance Megan are about to become first time parents!
Megan shared the happy news on her Instagram, with gorgeous bump and gender reveal pics from her baby shower.
A video showed the couple finding out they’re expecting a boy, which prompted England and Everton goalie Jordan to fist-pump the air. He and Megan then embraced, and mum-to-be Megan couldn’t hold back a few emotional tears.
Jordan won the hearts of the nation with some epic saves during the World Cup in Moscow, Russia, earlier in 2018 – so we can imagine footie fans across the country couldn’t be happier for him.
Obviously, we’re delighted for them both, too. Big congrats 🎉🎉
Masterchef‘s Gregg Wallace (Due 9 May 2019)
54-year-old Gregg is set to become a dad for the 3rd time. His wife Anna, 32, is pregnant with the couple’s 1st baby together! Anna’s due on 9 May 2019, and recently had her 12-week scan.
In an OK! exclusive, Gregg revealed that he and Anna were only having one child together, in large part due to his age.
And after 2 years of trying to conceive, and beginning to consider IVF, Anna’s more than fine with that – saying she feels happy to be pregnant at all.
“I’ve been happy with the idea of just having one child right from the start,” she told the mag. “The fact we’re having one baby is a miracle – we’re blessed enough.”
EastEnders‘ James Bye (Announced October 2018)
James and Victoria Bye are expecting baby no 3 😊
The happy news was revealed exclusively to OK!, with this stunning family shot featuring their 2 boys: 5-year-old Edward and 2-year-old Louis George.
The couple refer to their soon-to-be new arrival as a ‘miracle baby’ – and have opened up about their struggle to conceive. Victoria revealed she underwent surgery to treat her severe endometriosis.
Fortunately, the couple found out they were expecting in June. Such lovely news 😍
Ashley Banjo (Announced October 2018)
Diversity dancer Ashley and wife Francesca have shared their baby news on Instagram.
The couple revealed they’re expecting a girl – so we reckon Francesca’s past the 20-week mark now.
Ashley gushed in his announcement post: “I am so excited to finally share the news that we are having a baby!!
“Now the time has come to finally say this out loud I have no idea what to say! I don’t know if words alone can explain how full of joy and happiness we both are.
“It has been a more difficult journey to this point than most people know but we are now here with one of the most precious gifts in the world… A little girl!
“I have so many strong and incredible women around me, I know she will have great examples to follow. Especially this woman right here – my wife and my rock.
“You are going to be the best mum in the world. I’m so excited to see our little one grow up and if by any chance she wanted to be like her daddy and bust a few moves, I’ve already got the dancing shoes covered!
“Can’t wait to meet you little sweetie 🙏🏼🙌🏽😄❤️ #firstbaby #nextchapter #family.”
Jessica Simpson (Announced September 2018)
US singer and reality star Jessica’s about to become a mum of 3!
38-year-old Jessica revealed she and husband Eric Johnson are expecting their 3rd child, a baby girl, in a series of gorgeous Instagram posts on 19 September 2018.
Beside a snap of her 5-year-old son Ace Knute and 7-year-old daughter Maxwell Drake playing amongst some pink balloons, Jessica wrote:
“This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”
Now, Jessica’s not revealed her due date publicly, but as she knows the baby’s sex, we’re guessing she’s around the 20-week mark.
Reports have suggested she’s in her 6th month of pregnancy, which would put her due date around December 2018.
