    Josh Hartnett and Tamsin Egerton have confirmed that they are expecting their second child, with the actress debuting her baby bump at the Oscar after-party in LA on Sunday.

    The couple who married in 2012 and are already parents to their 14-month old daughter, have remained quiet on the subject, but according to People, Tamsin joked about her choice of snacks after tucking into a few beignets that evening, announcing, ‘This is not feeding the baby nourishment!’

    Fashion designer and star of The Hills, Whitney Port, also announced her pregnancy recently, breaking the news with a gorgeous Instagram snap. She captioned the image: ‘Oh hey! Just standing by the window in my underwear, with a BABY in my belly!!! DM me if you know what I’m supposed to do with this thing for how ever many years I’m supposed to be in charge. Check out my blog for a little letter from me & Timmy and for more behind the scenes of this crazy journey!!!! We are sooooo excited!!!’

    Whitney’s news was the third baby announcement of Thursday night, with both Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Amal Clooney breaking the news that they were pregnant – Amal and George Clooney are even expecting twins.

    Beyonce and Jay Z are also growing their family by two (yes TWO) new members, as the power couple are expecting twins as well. There must be something in the water.

    Made In Chelsea star, Binky Felstead, has also revealed recently she’s expecting a baby girl with her and on-off boyfriend, JP, and the way she broke the news to him sounds a little awkward if we’re honest.

    Despite reportedly telling her co-stars during the filming for an upcoming episode of Made in Chelsea, Binky admitted that it was actually her mother who told JP he was going to be a father as the couple weren’t actually speaking at the time.

    ‘I was with my mum when I took the test and JP and I weren’t talking at the time’, she explained on Virtually Famous. ‘My mum called him and said “she’s taken a test and said you’d better come round.'” She continued: ‘To be fair to him, he did come straight round and we hugged for about an hour.’

    Also kicking off the new year with a new arrival is Pharrell and wife, Helen Lasichanh, who became parents to triplets in January.

    Last year was a bumper year for A-list mums and dads thanks to a rush of celebrity babies. From Liv Tyler to Megan Fox, Hilaria Baldwin to Candice Swanpoel, we saw some of the cutest celebrity babies arrive in 2016. And with a stream of announcements and red carpet baby bump debuts toward the tail end of the year, it looks like 2017 will also be filled with a bundle of A-List joys.

    Katherine Heigl wasn’t the only star to add to their family over the Christmas holidays, either; Singer P!nk and her husband Carey Hart welcome their first son on Boxing Day, who they have named Jameson Moon Hart. And he’s totally adorable! See below.

    Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are another of 2016’s celebrity couples who have welcomed their first child into the world – a daughter named Dusty Rose Levine. We’d been pretty excited for her arrival thanks to several teasing snaps of Behati’s baby bump. From it floating in amongst loads of bubbles in the bath to her sunning it both on the beach and by the pool, when Dusty Rose did finally arrive, the couple shared the cutest snap of Adam holding his first child and our hearts totally melted.

    Along with Dusty Rose Levine, there have been a few other celebrity babies born with the most amazing baby names last year: South African model Candice Swanpoel for example named her newborn son the unusual name of Anacã – believed to be the West African Hausa word for ‘sweet-faced’ as well as the Brazilian word for a bird traditionally used as a girl’s name. Either way, we think it’s pretty awesome.

    Meanwhile, Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha gave their son an equally individual moniker – Caleb Kelechi. A Hebrew name, Caleb is said to mean ‘bold’ or ‘devotion to God’, while Kelechi is believed to have Nigerian roots. Pretty awesome, no?

    Rob Kardashian also welcomed his first child – a daughter named Dream Renée Kardashian – with fiancée Blac Chyna. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher welcomed their second child, a son named Dimitri Portwood Kutcher, while Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed their second daughter, Ines.

    But it’s not just celebrities babies we’ve rounded up. From red carpet reveals to social media sneak peaks, we’ve also got a whole host of expectant celebrity mums to keep you up-to-date. Click through our gallery for the very latest celebrity baby announcements…
