Guess Who’s Expecting Along With Me?

My son is due in three short months, and there is a medley of pregnant celebrities also expecting babies and due to have their own babies in the winter, spring, and summer of 2012 (some may even be having them as we speak).

Jennifer Garner and husband Ben Affleck are pregnant with their third child, rumored to be the elusive son Ben has been hoping for. The happy celebrity couple already have two adorable daughters, and Garner is due to give birth in very early 2012.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are another uber-celebrity couple, expecting their first child. The glowing Beyonce looks just as fashionable in maternity wear as she always did, and the couple are not revealing the baby’s gender. This famous baby is expected to arrive in the winter of 2012, months before her 30th birthday in September, helping her achieve her goal of having a baby by age 30.

Keri Russell is expecting her second child with husband Shane Deary. The private, earthy NYC couple, who are very hands-on parents, are also keeping the gender a secret.

James Van Der Beek of Dawson’s Creek fame and wife Kimberly Brook are expecting their second child in the Spring of 2012, to join their daughter Olivia (which incidentally is one of the most popular name for baby girls several years running).

Jessica Simpson is expecting her first child this winter. Fiance Eric Johnson is a former NFL player, and the couple have been engaged for just over a year. Simpson announced her pregnancy on twitter with a photo of herself dressed as a mummy with a very obvious bump and the declaration that yes, the rumors are true, she is going to be a mummy.

2012 pregnant celebrities

Funny girl Alyson Hannigan and actor husband Alexis Denisof are expecting their second child in the Spring of 2012, which coincides with her character also expecting a baby on her hit show How I Met Your Mother.

Robert Downey Jr. and wife Susan are expecting their first child in February. The long-time married couple are keeping the sex of the baby a surprise. This is Downey’s second child (he has one from a previous marriage that is now an adult).

Bruce Willis is starting a new family with new wife Emma Heming (who looks extraordinarily like his ex-wife Demi Moore). This is the first child for the couple, who have been married several years.

Victoria Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio and fiance Jamie Mazur are expecting their second child in spring 2012 (somewhere around the end of May). No word on the baby’s gender yet (you usually find out when you are about 20 weeks pregnant, so another month) or on the wedding date, but the happy couple have been dating almost seven years and have a 3 year old daughter.

pregnant models celebrities 2012

Hilary Duff is pregnant with her first baby and due in the winter of 2012. She revealed she is having a boy with husband pro hockey player Mike Comrie on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of the legendary Ron Howard, is due to give birth any day now (possibly already here) and the gender is to be revealed to the public after birth.

Kourtney kardashian and Scott Disick, reality show stars with a rather tumultuous relationship, are expecting baby #2 this summer. This baby was apparently planned, and the expectant parents are just finishing their first trimester.

Maggie Gyllenhaal & Peter Sarsgaard are expecting baby #2 in the spring.

Congrats to all the pregnant celebrities and non-celebrity moms to be who are expecting babies in 2012!
