When we learn that our friend or family member is pregnant, we become excited for them because we know that they are on an incredible journey. We have a pretty similar reaction to the news about our favorite celebrity's pregnancy. After all, we also love them very much and like to see them happy, even though we (probably) never met them in person.
So with all the excitement that we can have, let's take a look at the list of celebrities who are going to become parents by the end of this year. For some of them, it's going to be the first, long-awaited child, for others it's the second or even the third one. But for all of these celebs, it's a great pleasure to share the big news with their fans.
