As we wave bye bye to 2012, there are lots of celebrities who are going to be saying ‘hello’ to brand new little faces in 2013! As well as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal baby (or babies!), let’s have a look at some of the other celebs expecting the pitter patter of tiny feet next year…

1. Shakira.

The 35-year old Columbian songstress is 8 months pregnant with her first child with soccer player Gerard Piqué. She looks absolutely ready to drop, but has refused to slow down as she is determined to finish off her new album before giving birth.

2. Jessica Simpson.

After months of speculation, the singer-turned-actress announced via Twitter that she is expecting her second child. The blonde star announced her first pregnancy with a picture of her dressed as an Egyptian mummy at a Halloween party with the caption “It’s true, I am going to be a mummy” and told the world of Twitter about her second pregnancy by tweeting a picture of her 8 month old daughter Maxwell sitting on a beach with the words ‘Big Sis’ written in the sand.

3. Amber Rose.

Model and Kanye West’s ex Amber Rose is due to give birth to her baby with rapper fiance Wiz Khalifa in January and joined him onstage earlier this month, where he tenderly cuddled her bump. The couple waited until September to announce the pregnancy as they tragically lost a baby during Rose’s second trimester and wanted to keep it under wraps until they were completely sure that their unborn child was safe.

4. Holly Madison.

Playboy model and Hugh Heffner’s ex Holly Madison is nearly 7 months pregnant with her first baby, who’s father is Pasquale Rotella. She has been suffering with severe morning sickness, much like Kate Middleton. Most women only suffer from morning sickness in their first trimester, but it can last the whole pregnancy for some poor women. Although she made her name and fortune posing nude in Playboy, the ‘Girls Next Door’ star says that she wouldn’t let her daughter do it and told magazine, HollyMoms “Luckily kids don’t want to be like their parents, so I don’t think she’ll see anything cool or rebellious about posing for Playboy. I’m down for whatever direction in life she wants to go but I think she can do better,”

5. Busy Phillips.

The ‘Cougar Town’ actress is expecting her second child with husband Marc Silverstein. The couple already have a 4 year old daughter called Birdie and Phillips is another star to announce her pregnancy on Twitter. The 33-year old actress, whose real name is Elizabeth Jean Philipps, tweeted a picture of a positive pregnancy test on the 10th of December with the caption “so this happened….”

6. Jenna Dewan

Channing Tatum’s wife is expecting their first child next year and the ‘Magic Mike’ star is planning to take an entire year off to be with his wife and new baby. Dewan, a dancer and actress who met Tatum on the set of ‘Step Up’ has previously spoken about their desire to have children. With their combined looks, their baby is destined to be an absolute beauty!

7. Jenna Bush Hager.

George.W.Bush’s daughter announced on the 12th of December on NBC’s ‘Today’ that she is expecting her first child in the Spring of 2013. She was joined by her husband, Henry Hager and told the presenters, “I’m pregnant!We’re so excited and obviously nervous. I’m a first-time mom. But it’s something that I’ve always wanted. I’m a teacher and I love kids … It’s a springtime baby.”

8. Kristen Bell.

The 32-year old star of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ has revealed that she is expecting her first baby with fiance and fellow actor Dax Shepard. The couple have been together since 2007 and engaged for the past 3 years, but are refusing to tie the knot until same-sex marriage is legal in California, where the couple live. The couple are, quite obviously, not same-sex, but they have lots of gay and lesbian friends and have no qualms about having a baby put of wedlock.

Lots of other celeb couples are also due to have first, second and, in some cases, third babies all in 2013. We think the popularity of ’50 Shades of Grey’ can take a LOT of credit for that!
