Blake Lively, Kate Middleton, & 10 More Celebrities Who Will Welcome Babies in 2015

As a certified celebrity baby enthusiast, I can confirm that 2014 was a great year for babies in Hollywood. Just the fact that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis got engaged and brought a baby into this world is enough to make your head spin from the excitement of it all, and that's just the beginning. My personal favorite new baby? The one belonging to John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, because Hazel Krasinski is not even a year old and she's already more beautiful than I can ever hope to be. But now that 2015 is here, it's time to get ready to welcome in a brand new batch of kiddos who will flood their parents' Instagrams (and thus our lives) with adorable photos. And I can't wait.

These 12 proud moms are expecting babies this year, and they're going to be awesome.

Although this was just announced recently, reportedly Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross are expecting their first baby and Simpson’s second. And being that Bronx turned out so cute, I can’t wait to see what this one looks like.

In 2015, Deschanel and Hornsby are about to make their 3-year-old son, Henry, a big brother — and this means a pregnancy for her Bones character, Brennan, too.

I have been excited to meet Carrie Underwood’s inevitably gorgeous unborn baby since the moment she announced it last year. And in case you’re behind, let me give you an update: she’s having a boy!

I’ll almost be sad to see Blake Lively give birth, considering the fact that she’s making pregnancy look so beautiful. But it’s happening this year, and I’m guessing her baby will be just as beautiful as Mom.

Very, very early in 2015, Liv Tyler will be welcoming her second child into the world. January or February, guys. This is about to get real.

THE SECOND ROYAL BABY IS ALMOST HERE. This is not a drill. Kate Middleton expects to give birth in April 2015, and my fingers are crossed that it’s a girl. Cue adorable pictures of Prince George being the best big brother ever.

Knightley is about to become a mom for the first time this year, and I have one simple request. Please, for your baby’s first Halloween, dress him or her up as a pirate. PLEASE.

Cobie Smulders & Tarran Killam

Cobie Smulders, I am trying to separate you from the fact that although you played Robin on How I Met Your Mother, you are not responsible for the show’s terrible, terrible ending — and your forthcoming baby will help me accomplish that. Cute baby photos stat, please. I need to erase the damage HIMYM has done.

Isla Fisher & Sacha Baron Cohen

Yep, that’s right — the adorably pregnant Isla Fisher will soon give birth to her third baby with Borat. This is real life.

Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard

Adding to the next generation of Duggars, Jill is expecting her baby this spring — and judging by the size of her belly already, I’m a little concerned there might be more than one in there.

It’s official: Shakira’s expecting another boy! In August, she revealed the happy news that her son, Milan, is going to become a big brother soon.

Vanessa & Nick Lachey

As if their adorable Christmas card wasn’t cute enough, I suspect next year’s will be even cuter when the second Lachey baby is here.
