All the Celebs Who Are Pregnant Right Now
The stork never stops visiting couples across the globe, but in Hollywood, it feels like the stork is especially busy. Every month, we get tons of happy confirmations from celebrities that they are about to become parents of all kinds. First-time parents, parents who are adding to their growing brood, parents who are bringing together children from previous marriages and adding to their blended family, parents who are adopting, parents who chose surrogacy and even more types and combinations.
We may be nearing the end of 2018 but the celeb pregnancy announcements are still coming in by the metric ton. Frequently done via Instagram and with plenty of excitement, these celebrities are sharing their pregnancies with the world, letting us share in their excitement, too. From the Thanksgiving Day confirmation that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is expecting her third child to the adorable announcement that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is pregnant with her first child with husband Prince Harry, these celebs will soon be visited by that stork in 2019.
Let’s see who else is currently expecting in 2018.

In a set of photos she put on Instagram, fans can see her two oldest children — 6-year-old Lorenzo and 4-year-old Giovanna — holding a framed photo of the sonogram confirming Polizzi’s pregnancy and, in the second photo, of them ostensibly reacting to the news. Polizzi captioned the photo with an equally sweet statement: “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving #family.”
