Ahhh, the exciting world of celebrity pregnancies, first we pour over the pictures from the initial rumours ‘Is she just bloated?’ ‘Is she expecting?’, then we exclaim with glee with the confirmation that they are carrying the future Shilo’s or Apple’s.
The next few months are usually filled with boy/girl debates, name sweepstakes and disputes of whether we are also to posh to push. One Born Every Minute has made us experts on the whole labour process and procedure meaning given the opportunity we could probably deliver the baby ourselves.
Finally the day arrives; cameras are poised outside of the expensive looking clinic as the proud father comes out to address the press. A beaming smile confirms the name, sex and weight and then the father politely asks for their privacy to be returned.
OK! and Hello are busy writing cheques to get the ‘exclusive’ of the gorgeous looking new mother who would, within weeks, somehow annoyingly be slinking around in the tiny jeans of pre-pregnancy. The mother will be back to her usual celeb lifestyle within months happily juggling mother-hood and her heavy work schedule, whilst we just watch in awe, unable to understand the transformation and lack of stretch-marks.
So, who is part of the celeb baby cycle this year?
Coleen Rooney had to take to Twitter to deny pregnancy rumours after she was papped on holiday last month. Her gorgeous curvy frame sparked intrigue as to whether the WAG was in-fact expecting baby number two. She wrote on her Twitter page: 'Another lovely day in Barbados! And no am not pregnant! Can’t I breathe out and relax on holiday without a pregnancy rumour! #AmnoskinnyMinnie!'
The rumour that never seems to disappear is Beyoncé and babies. Even after her breathtaking performance at Glastonbury, Piers Morgan asked her the question in an interview a few days later. She told Piers, “I always said I’d have a baby at 30. I’m 29. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. So I don’t know.” When pushed further by Piers, who asked, “Can we expect the little patter of little Beyoncé’s and Jay-Z’s?” In Beyoncé’s own words: “Only God knows.”
At Lily Allen’s wedding last month, the singer’s new Husband Sam Cooper announced the couple were expecting again following a tragic miscarriage six-months ago. The star was showing a tiny bump as she beamed down the aisle in a gorgeous vintage inspired dress. We wish Lily and Sam all the best with the pregnancy and hope everything goes well throughout.
