If you're expecting a baby this year you've got plenty of celebrity company, mama. From reality TV stars to bloggers and A-list actresses, there is a baby boom happening in celebrity circles right now.

Amy Schumer, Snooki and Christina Anstead are just a few of the celebrity moms who recently welcomed little ones and there are a ton more who are still waiting to meet their kiddos.

Here are some fellow parents-to-be expecting in 2020:


Katharine McPhee + David Foster are expecting a baby! 

American Idol alum Katharine McPhee and her husband, music mogul David Foster, are expanding their family.

McPhee, 36, is pregnant, People reports. This is her first child and Foster's sixth. Foster, age 70, is already dad to five women between the ages of 34 and 50.

The age gap between McPhee's baby and their half-siblings is larger than most, but as Foster's daughter Erin (age 38) previously told People, the age-gap in the McPhee-Foster marriage has been good for Foster's grown kids.

"Interestingly, the age difference has played a role in a positive way," Erin Foster previously told People. "Our dad comes from a generation where women are more passive. He is also passive about his feelings. Kat has really pushed him to open up. We could get into a fight, and then Kat's like, 'No, you have to pick up the phone, call your daughter back.' She's a facilitator, which is really important. She pushes him to be more emotional and more vulnerable."

Meghan Trainor + Daryl Sabara are having a baby! 

Singer Meghan Trainor and Spy Kids actor Daryl Sabara are going to be parents!

"You all know how long I've wanted this!!!!" Trainor captioned a recent Instagram post of a sonogram. "@darylsabara and I are so beyond happy and excited to meet this little cutie early next year! WE'RE PREGNANTTTTT!!!"

As E! News reports, this news comes almost two years after the couple's wedding.

Congrats!

Surprise! Kelly Rowland is pregnant with baby no. 2! 

As CNN reports, Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child is expecting her second child. Rowland broke the news via the cover of Women's Health.

She told the magazine she and her husband Tim Weatherspoon wanted to expand their family, and the quarantine just sped things up.

"We had been talking about it loosely, and then Covid happened, and we were just like, 'Let's see what happens,'" Rowland said.

Frankie Muniz calls wife Paige Price's pregnancy 'a real-life miracle'

Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz is known for playing the middle brother but he's about to be a dad!

Muniz and wife Paige Price just announced they're expecting a baby and Price is due in March.

"This is the biggest announcement I've ever made!!!" Muniz said on Twitter.

The couple has been married for 4 years and wasn't always sure this day would come. '

"When we found out we were expecting, I think we were both in a state of disbelief," Price said. "We knew that we wanted this, but we were told our chances weren't that great."

According to Price, dealing with infertility made going to every doctor's appointment very difficult. Now that she is 15 weeks along she can't believe it, and neither can Muniz (who is adorably thrilled).

"We felt like we were living and experiencing a real-life miracle for the first time. The second I heard that heartbeat, reality set in. I was throwing out baby names and future career choices," Muniz says in a video posted to social media.

Brittany Cartwright + Jax Taylor are expecting a baby! 

Vanderpump Rules fans have another birth to look forward to as Brittany + Jax join the growing number of current and former cast members becoming parents.

The couple broke the news on Instagram where they both posted the same series of photographs with their sonogram photo.

"Mom & Dad. The love of our lives is coming soon," Brittany captioned her post.

Dad-to-be Jax captioned his slides: "Sooooo,........I am gonna be Dad.."

Ashley Tisdale is going to be a mama! 🎉

Ashley Tisdale dropped some huge news on Instagram—she's pregnant!

The 35-year-old High School Musical actress and her husband Christopher French both posted a series of pregnancy photos to their accounts. Tisdale didn't add a caption and just let her bump speak for itself.

Her former co-star Vanessa Hudgens was quick to comment, writing "Just the freaking cutest."

Tisdale and French have been married since 2014 and have talked about wanting kids in the past but Tisdale says the constant questions about whether or when they would start a family were overwhelming.

"[After] I got engaged EVERYONE (and I mean everyone!) asked when I was getting married," she wrote on her blog, Frenshe. "Then, once I was married, everyone was asking when I was having kids. To be honest, it just felt invasive. I wasn't ready for that step yet and I wanted to be selfish and have Chris all to myself for a while."

She continues: "[G]oing through my mental health journey, it wouldn't have been the right timing for such a huge life change. I'm not naive about how a baby changes everything as I have a niece and plenty of friends with kids. I'm glad I worked on myself before we decided to make this decision. After six years of marriage, we built a strong foundation, and the timing just felt right."

Tisdale says her first trimester hasn't been easy but she's looking forward to the rest of this journey and to sharing her family's story on her own timeline.

Tisdale reminds the world that if, when or how a person chooses to start a family are personal questions and we never know someone else's story.

Country singer Mickey Guyton is pregnant! 🎉

Country musician Mickey Guyton is expecting her first child with her husband, Grant Savoy.

This year has already been an intense one for the "Black Like Me" singer and it's now even more emotional.

"God sent me an angel in these dark times and I am beyond grateful and terrified and all of the things," she wrote over an Instagram story showing a bump selfie.

"I'm so excited to announce that I'm having a baby! My life completely changed in an instant. Literally nothing else matters," Guyton captioned an Instagram post of her ultrasound photos. "I'm so excited and terrified all at the same time. I have no idea what I am doing but am so thankful that God chose me to be this baby's mom 😭👶🏽🤰🏾"

Surprise! Chrissy Teigen + John Legend are expecting 3rd child!

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend sure know how to do a baby announcement!

This week Legend dropped the video for his new single "Wild", which features the couple's two beautiful kids, 4-year-old Luna and 2-year-old Miles...and shows the couple holding onto Teigen's mid-section in way that suggests she's expecting.

Fans have been busy filling comment sections with questions about whether a third child is on the way, and while neither Teigen or Legend have made a statement about the pregnancy, E! News has confirmed it and "multiple sources" have confirmed it to People.

Back in September 2018, Teigen talked about her plans for a third child in an interview with People, noting that she and John still have some embryos waiting (both Miles and Luna were conceived via in vitro fertilization).

"John wants however many kids I want. That's the good thing with John—he is down for it," Teigen told People at the time.

"Are we ready right now? No! I really love having two, but I think when I'm 70, I'll look back and say, 'Oh, I wish I had more.' I can't see myself regretting having a ton of kids."

Two years later it seems she's ready for another.

Congratulations to Chrissy + John!

Former Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder is pregnant with her first child

[Editors's Note: As Motherly has previously stated, systemic racism in America is real and we are committed to covering the Black Lives Matter movement. For resources on raising anti-racist children, look here.]

Shortly after being fired from Vanderpump Rules because former co-star Faith Stowers accused Schroder and other cast members of racist actions, Stassi Schroder has confirmed she is pregnant with her first child.

Schroder has not yet publicly commented on her pregnancy but has apologized for the series of events that led to her leaving the Bravo series.

"Racially insensitive comments from my past have resurfaced. It is important that I continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better," Schroeder wrote on Instagram. "I have grown significantly from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the hurt I caused. I am grateful for the people in my life that continue to check me and push me to evolve into a more educated person."

Schroder is engaged to Beau Clark. The two had planned to get married this summer but postponed the event due to COVID-19.

"We are pregnant and we are so excited to share it with everyone," Simpson Ross noted in her caption, adding that she understands that pregnant women are under an unprecedented amount of stress right now and that's why she supports the March of Dimes Mom and Baby COVID-19 Intervention and Support Fund.

This baby will join big sister Jagger Snow Ross, 4, and 11-year-old big brother Bronx Wentz, who Simpson Ross shares with her ex, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.

Congrats to the growing family!

Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be a dad in 2020! 

Moden Family may be ending but Jesse Tyler Ferguson's family is just beginning. In January the sitcom star announced he's expecting a baby with his husband, Justin Mikita.

"This is something I haven't even mentioned to anyone, if we could just keep it between the three of us and you all, but I'm actually expecting a baby in July with my husband," he said on The Late Late Show.


Report: Michelle Williams is engaged + pregnant 🎉

Mom of one Michelle Williams will soon be a mom of two!

News of the actress' pregnancy and engagement to Tony Award-winning director Thomas Kail was first reported by People and confirmed by E! News. The actress split from her former husband musician Phil Elverum nearly a year ago.

Williams and Kail previously worked together when Kail directed Fosse/Verdon, in which Williams starred. She won an Emmy for that performance and her powerful Emmy acceptance speech inspired working moms everywhere by acknowledging "what is possible when a woman is trusted to discern her own needs, feels safe enough to voice them, and respected enough that they'll be heard."

Williams' incredible speech ended with a shout out to her 14-year-old daughter, Matilda, who she shared with the late Heath Ledger: "Matilda, this is for you, like everything else."

Matilda was just 2 years old when she and Williams lost Ledger in 2008.

In the years since his death, Williams has protected their daughter's privacy with the same intensity she brings to her work. In addition to her Emmy win, she has won a Golden Globe and been nominated for four Academy Awards since becoming a mother.

Williams has demonstrated that motherhood is no impediment to professional success and we can't wait to see what she does as a mother of two!

Nuna

New mama life is often fraught with decision fatigue. From choosing a pediatrician to choosing a baby monitor, it can be difficult to know which solutions are made to last. Fortunately, Nuna just made one very important decision a lot easier. That's because their new MIXX Next Stroller has everything a new parent needs to get out, get around and get everything done.

An upgraded version of their popular MIXX stroller, the MIXX Next features a more compact fold (shaving 6.5 inches off the folded size, down to 27.5 inches long and 23.6 inches wide) thanks to a compact fold-away axle where the rear wheels tuck under the frame when it folds. Plus, the new model also stays standing when folded—meaning no more back-straining as you bend to pick up your folded stroller and heave it into the trunk. Instead, the MIXX Next can be tucked more easily into storage whenever your ride comes to an end.


Nuna Mixx Next Stroller


Speaking of the ride, your little one will love the new rear-wheel Free Flex suspension™ and front-wheel progression suspension technology that absorbs more shock as you roll over uneven terrain. The wheels have also been updated to tough, rubber foam-filled tires for a smoother, more durable ride and the no re-thread harness makes it easy to clip your baby in securely and quickly. And when all those gentle bumps lull your baby to sleep? The seat features a five-position recline that adjusts quickly with one-hand—all the way down to a true-flat sleeper recline—just don't forget to move them to their crib when you arrive home. (Don't forget to extend the water repellent, UPF 50+ canopy to keep those sleepy eyes shaded.) Even better, the all-season seat keeps baby cozy in winter and unsnaps to mesh for a cooler ride in the summer.

Perhaps most importantly, though, this stroller is made to last. (After all, what's the point of solving a mama dilemma if it creates another one a few months down the road?) The MIXX Next pairs perfectly with all Nuna PIPA™ series infant car seats using the included car seat ring adapter, and then adapts to a child seat that can face toward you (for a little face time) or forward for when your little one is ready to take on the world. All in all, this stroller gets you where you need to go with a child up to 50 pounds, meaning it's the only one you'll ever need.

The MIXX Next is available in three colors and retails for $749.95.
