Blame it on Kate Middleton, but it looks like celebrity babies and famous Moms-to-be are going to be the biggest news-makers of 2013, and the year has only just begun! In 2012, we were excited to finally meet Blue Ivy and Maxwell Drew, but in 2013, there’s yet another wave of superstar couples having babies. Here’s a look at the most anticipated celebrities babies of 2013.
1. Kate Middleton & Prince William’s baby
There hasn’t been a more anticipated baby since, well, Jay-Z and Beyonce’s baby girl Blue Ivy of 2012. People are already placing bets on what the Royal baby will be named, with Elizabeth and Diana leading the way if it’s a girl.
2. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s baby
We’re sure Kim Kardashian would love to have the No. 1 spot on everyone’s anticipated babies list, but we have to be honest that we’re still more excited for the first Royal baby than we are for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s first child together. We love that the hot couple waited until New Year’s Eve to announce that Kim Kardashian is pregnant for the first time. Way to ruin the biggest party night of the year for the interns over at Us Weekly and People!
3. Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson’s baby
Jess may have given birth to Maxwell Drew just 8 months ago, but it looks like — oops — she did it again! The singer had to put her Weight Watchers plan on hold until she gives birth to her second child, but Jess and Eric couldn’t be more thrilled to add to their family.
4. Jenna Dewan-Tatum & Channing Tatum
It looks like Channing Tatum is going to go from Magic Mike to Mr. Mom! We can’t wait to see what the offspring of People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2012 looks like.
5. Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
Kristen Bell and fiancé Dax Shepard are going to have their first child together in 2013. Signs they’re going to be amazing parents? They’re both hilarious and, if you’ve ever seen Kristen pay a visit to Ellen Degeneres, you know she’s nothing short of adorable.
6. Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves’ baby
It looks like Magic Mike costars Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum will have to organize some play dates! Matt and Camila Alves took to Twitter on July 4th to announce that they’re expecting their thirs child together in 2013.
7. Shakira & Gerard Piqué
We have a feeling Shakira and her Barcelona defender boyfriend Gerard Piqué will have one of the first celebrity babies of the New Year. Gerard has already teased his Twitter followers by faking the news that Shakira gave birth. When will it finally happen? It could be happening right now for all we know!
8. Malin Akerman & Roberto Zincone’s baby
Canadian beauty and funny woman Malin Akerman is expecting her first child with husband Roberto Zincone. We hope she makes her BFF Emmanuelle Chriqui the godmother!
9. Holly Madison & Pasquale Rotella’s baby
We wonder if Holly will call up former Girls Next Door costar Kendra for a little advice on parenting! We never would have predicted ourselves saying that 5 years ago.
10. Busy Philipps & Marc Silverstein’s baby
Michelle Williams’ bestie Busy Philipps and her husband Marc Silverstein are expecting their second child. It looks like Matilda will have more friends to play with!
Honourable Mention: Devon Aoki & James Bailey’s baby
Model and actress Devon Aoki is expecting a baby girl in 2013 with husband James Bailey. Watch out, next generations! Devon’s baby girl will likely be as gorgeous as her Mom.
