Nick Carter's wife Lauren didn't know she was pregnant until she was 5 and a half months in.
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.
Here are some parents-to-be expecting in 2021:
Nick Carter + wife Lauren expecting no.3 after miscarriages
Backstreet Boys band member Nick Carter is expecting his third child with his wife Lauren who didn't find out she was pregnant until she was 5 and a half months pregnant!
" I didn't have any symptoms, I didn't have anything indicating that I was pregnant. One day I just, I felt something move in my body and I said, 'Nick, there's something not right. I think I need to go to the doctor. Something's wrong with me.' I was not supposed to be able to have any more children, so I never assumed that I was pregnant," Lauren tells People.
The pregnancy was super surprising after Lauren suffered multiple miscarriages, something she describes as really traumatic.
Things are going well in this pregnancy and the new baby will join 4-year-old Odin and 15-month-old Saoirse.
Emma Stone is pregnant with her first child 🎉
Actress Emma Stone and her husband Dave McCary are expecting a baby, People reports.
The couple were married in 2020 and have not yet publicly talked about the pregnancy, but back in 2018, Stone explained her feelings on family during an interview for Elle, stating: "My perspective about kids has changed as I've gotten older. I never babysat or anything. As a teenager, I was like, I'm never getting married, I'm never having kids. And then I got older and I was like, I really want to get married, I really want to have kids."
Lauren and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino are adding to the Jersey Shore family!
Lauren and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino are the latest Jersey Shore couple to start a family. The duo announced the big news on social media this week, noting the due date is May 2021.
This is a rainbow baby for the couple who just celebrated their second wedding anniversary. They've been through a lot since getting married in 2018: Mike went to prison for tax evasion three months after they got married, and served 8 months. After his release in September 2019 Lauren became pregnant but suffered a miscarriage.
Things are changing for the couple and 2020 has proven to have some bright spots.
Cast member Deena Cortese (who is also pregnant) was quick to comment on the social media pregnancy announcement: "So excited for you both! Love you guys so much."
Karlie Kloss is expecting her first child
Model (and former Taylor Swift bestie) Karlie Kloss is pregnant!
Multiple outlets have reported Kloss and her Joshua Kushner (Ivanka Trump's brother-in-law) are expecting their first child together.
According to People, 28-year-old Kloss is pretty thrilled to be expecting her first child two years after marrying Kushner.
Kloss has not yet made an announcement on social media or spoken publicly about the pregnancy.
Jersey Shore Star Deena Cortese just announced her 2nd pregnancy with the a Halloween-themed pregnancy announcement 🎃
It's a new era for Jersey Shore's Deena Cortese, who just announced she and her husband Chris Buckner are expecting their second child.
The two already share 21-month-old son CJ. Back when he was a baby Cortese shared that motherhood is harder than she thought it would be, but she's proven to be up to the challenge, even when online trolls mom-shamed her.
We hope that welcoming her second child is a bit easier (and that Instagram users are a bit more empathetic). Cortese's second baby is due in May 2021, an announcement she made via a Hocus Pocus-themed photo shoot.
Along with Chris and CJ, she sported a themed T-shirt announcing the good news (mama's says: "I smell a child", a line from the beloved Halloween classic) and her due date is painted on a pumpkin.
Congratulations on your little pumpkin, Deena!
Hilary Duff is expecting baby no. 3!
Hilary Duff and her husband Matthew Koma are expecting another baby!
This little one will join 2-year-old big sister Banks, and big brother Luca, who Duff shares with her ex, Mike Comrie.
"We are growing!!!" Duff captioned a video announcement on Instagram, which shows Koma rubbing her belly.
Congratulations to this growing family!
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.
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.

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.

[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.
