blank

They’ve had songs in the charts, documentaries on the small screen, films on the big screens, clothing lines on rails in fancy stores – and everything-in-between – but many celebrities will be adding an even more special role to their long list of achievements this year: being a parent.

We may only be a third of the way through 2022, but more than a dozen of our favourite stars have already shared the wonderful news that their families are expanding and they’re expecting a baby.

Among them, singer Britney Spears is pregnant with her third child, whilst Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby and The X Factor winner Alexandra Burke are both pregnant with their first buns in the oven.

We take a look at all our favourite celebs who have shared pregnancy news so far this year…

Britney, 40, took to Instagram to reveal her happy news earlier this month and said she got a pregnancy test after partner Sam Asghari suggested she take one after their holiday to Maui.

“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back… I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???” she wrote in a candid post. “My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly !!!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby … 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant. It’s growing !!! If 2 are in there … I might just lose it.”

She added that she won’t be going out in public as much anymore and bravely recalled that when she was pregnant previously she suffered with perinatal depression which was “absolutely horrible” and said it was made even more difficult by the fact “women didn’t talk about it back then”.

“I’m not going to lie I wasn’t overjoyed with getting a scan app [appointment] for Jan 1st 9am [grinning face with sweat emoji] but let’s face it with a toddler I’d be up anyway and I wasn’t going to be hungover.

“It turned out to be the most special gift to start the new year! Knowing my baby is healthy, growing and safe in my tummy [face covered in hearts emoji] [heart emoji]”

It will be her second child with actor Ryan Thomas of Coronation Street and Waterloo Road fame. The pair already have an adorable son named Roman.

Also from TOWIE, Lauren Goodger announced she was pregnant earlier this year. She revealed in January that she was 16 weeks pregnant with a second daughter – but said the news was a complete shock.

She told OK! magazine: “I hadn’t had a period for quite a few weeks, my nipples were killing me and when I was breastfeeding the pain was unbearable. I thought, ‘I bet you I’m pregnant!’ I did a test and it said positive.

“We weren’t very careful and Charlie was really pleased, but being honest I was really in two minds about it. I was like, ‘I’m just getting myself back together – I’m going back to square one. Is this fair?’ You get real mum guilt, like, ‘What about Larose [the couple’s now eight-month-old daughter]? She’s still a baby, she still needs me, I won’t be able to be there for her.’ A lot went through my mind which is why I’ve held out a bit longer until I’ve announced it. Charlie was like, ‘I really want this baby.’ And I said, ‘So do I.’ I made the decision to go ahead with it and I’m so glad I did.”

Whilst delighted to be expecting again, Lauren confirmed earlier this month that she had contracted norovirus which was “horrendous” while pregnant.

She told fans and followers on her Instagram story: “Currently have norovirus and it’s horrendous. Doesn’t go well with being heavily pregnant either. I am so unwell so won’t be contactable for a few days to anyone who has messaged me. Will get back to you when I am better [pink heart emoji].”

Joss Stone

Pop star and last year’s The Masked Singer winner, Joss Stone is another celebrity to be expecting a baby this year. In an emotional video, Joss, 35, said it was “beautiful and not at the same time” and said her feelings about her pregnancy were “mixed” as she had suffered a miscarriage in October, 2021.

In her video announcement, which spans eight minutes long, brave Joss sat in her car and discussed both pregnancies and said: “I have a bit of an announcement to make which is kind of mixed. It’s beautiful and not at the same time. In one sense it’s completely beautiful but the story that comes first is not.

“I want to explain everything because I think it’s important as I’m going to have to move some of my gigs and that means that we’re in it together. Last year, in October I lost a baby and it was really horrible because it was my baby and I know that a lot of women go through that.”

The star then started to get upset and had to stop herself from speaking as she had tears in her eyes.

She continued: “I went to the doctor and said, ‘Why has this happened?’ and he said, ‘We don’t know why Joss these things just happen by the luck of the gods it’s not your fault’. I kept pressing him for an answer ‘why?’ and he didn’t know, poor bloke.”

“It’s sh**ty and a horrible horrible thing. It’s not something you can get over, it’s something you have to live with. He said ‘Joss come back in the Spring next year and we’ll do a well woman’s check and make sure you’re all good and go from there’.”

The video then cut to Joss walking in woodland and holding up a positive pregnancy test, before cutting back to Joss in the car, with her adding: “So that’s the beautiful part of the story is that there are rainbows after storms and it’s just lovely. I’m very excited and I can’t wait to meet my baby.”

Olivia Bowen

Love Island star Olivia Bowen is also expecting and has revealed she fell pregnant within just two months of trying for a baby.

Olivia, 28, who is now married with her Love Island co-star Alex Bowen, announced she was expecting her first child in January.

She told New magazine: “We were actually only trying for a couple of months. So we are so, so grateful and so, so lucky to be able to conceive that quickly.”

“We’re keeping the sex a secret. We just feel that there aren’t many genuine surprises in life, so to leave that right to the last minute will be really exciting,” she added.

Shay Mitchell

Canadian actress Shay Mitchell, who rose to prominence for playing Emily Fields in popular American mystery drama series Pretty Little Liars, is another celebrity who has shared pregnancy news this year and revealed the news just a month after confirming her grandma had passed away.

Sharing three stunning photos of her baby bump on Instagram on February 7, Shay wrote: “Saying goodbye to a loved one while simultaneously experiencing the joy of welcoming another into this world is the great cycle of life.

“It is also my most challenging season to date. I can’t help but think this was the universe’s plan all along, knowing I would need other worldly joy to cushion the blow of losing one of the most important people in my life.

“Yet, this is proof that love, life and loss can profoundly exist all at the same time. Gram, I miss you every day. Little one, we are so excited to meet you. I breathe a sigh of peace knowing you two are already connected in such a cosmic way.
