THE celebrity circle is always abuzz with weddings, hook-ups, break-ups, and everything in between. Baby fever is no less exciting. So here are 10 celebrities sporting a bump and whose babies some of us can’t wait to see this year.
1 Kate Middleton
The Duchess of Cambridge and her husband, Britain’s Prince William, are expecting their second child. The Royal couple — whose April 2011 nuptials was dubbed “the wedding of the century” — are already parents to 18-month-old Prince George. Their second bundle of joy is due in April.
2 Jessica Biel
As one of Hollywood’s golden couples, the 7th Heaven star and husband — heart-throb Justin Timberlake — have been on “baby-bump watch” since their 2012 wedding. Biel has been spotted several times with what looks to be an unmistakably swollen belly, though the Timberlakes have yet to confirm the bun in the oven.
Hips don’t lie indeed as the singer and her Spanish footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique will be welcoming their second child pretty soon. Having met on the set of her hit Waka-Waka, 37-year-old Shakira and 27-year-old Pique went public with their relationship in 2011 and already have a two-year-old son named Milan.

The blue-eyed beauty is carrying her second child, and the rumour mill has been swirling with reports that the 37-year-old is engaged to the baby’s father — entertainment manager David Gardner — since she was spotted with a sparkler on her ring finger. The new arrival would be the couple’s first child together as Tyler shares 10-year-old son Milo with ex-husband Royston William Langdon, and Gardner has a seven-year-old son from a previous relationship.
6 Ashlee Simpson
