Who’s newly expecting, which stars are new parents—we’re covering our favorite Hollywood celebrities and their expanding families! Read on to find out more about the summer arrivals and new celebrity pregnancy announcements making the rounds online.

Ginnifer Goodwin + Josh Dallas

Welcome to the world, little Oliver Finlay Dallas! The proud parents welcomed their bouncing baby boy on May 29th in Los Angeles. Will the Once Upon a Time producers add a storyline for the newlywed’s first son? Ginnifer and Josh first met on the popular television show’s set, and we’d love to see their new family joy continue onscreen and off.

Kourtney Kardashian + Scott Disick

The famous reality couple recently confirmed to People.com that they’re expecting their third child together. Kourtney and Scott have not yet released any details about the pregnancy, but we’re sure the couple’s children, Mason, 4 and a half, and Penelope, 23 months, are excited to welcome another sibling into the mix. Congratulations, Kourtney and Scott!

Hayden Panettiere + Wladimir Klitschko

The petite Nashville star and her Ukrainian fiancé recently announced Hayden’s first pregnancy. Klitschko is a heavyweight boxing champion and proposed in October 2013. The happy couple has a lot of elements to balance in the next year—a wedding and a baby!—and we wish the two of them many congratulations on starting their family together.

Congrats, famous new moms and moms-to-be!

Pregnancy Cravings: Which Celebrity Moms Shared Your Crazy Cravings

Pregnancy Cravings: Which Celebrity Moms Shared Your Crazy Cravings

Did you watch actress Mila Kunis’ interview with Ellen DeGeneres last week? The petit, very pregnant actress admitted to Ellen that vinegar-based foods had taken over her pregnancy cravings: specifically, sauerkraut and pickles. Ellen attributed Mila’s specific pregnancy cravings to her Ukrainian heritage, and at one point during her show’s interview, Ellen had sauerkraut and pickles delivered to the star. What crazy foods have other pregnant stars sought out in the past? We’ll reveal what kinds of foods celebrity moms craved and see whose cravings matched your own!

If you had pregnancy cravings for sweets, ice cream, and other candies…

You’re just like Pink, who craved Sour Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, and Key Lime pie when pregnant with her daughter Willow in 2011. Pink’s not alone in the sweets department: Hilary Duff wanted gooey marshmallow snacks while pregnant with her son Luca, Princess Kate Middleton craved Lavender Shortbread (which sounds as lovely and dainty as the princess herself!), and actress Drew Barrymore admitted to swinging through the drive-thru window for satisfying ice cream cones during her last pregnancy. You’re in good company if you reached for a tub of ice cream during your own pregnancy!

If you had pregnancy cravings for savory or spicy treats…

Hot chili sauce drizzled on ice cream? Sounds crazy, but that’s one of the savory treats Beyonce reportedly had pregnancy cravings for while pregnant with Blue Ivy. Jennifer Connelly dipped pretzels in cream cheese to satisfy her pregnancy cravings and Nicole Ritchie couldn’t get enough of the Japanese staple wasabi, even though she admits to disliking the hot green paste while not pregnant.

If you had pregnancy cravings for bizarre foods or combinations…

Buttered Pop tarts? Sounds good in theory, but not something we’d like to try anytime soon! Jessica Simpson craved buttered toaster snacks while pregnant with her daughter Maxwell. New mom Kerry Washington couldn’t get enough gluten-free pizza to satisfy her pregnancy cravings, which isn’t a strange food, but it’s such a healthy craving that it seems out of the ordinary! Kardashian sister Kourtney admitted to making a mayo and relish sandwich to quell an out-of-control pregnancy craving, and was relieved that she only wanted the strange combo once!

What was the craziest pregnancy craving you had while pregnant, moms?

Every woman hopes to marry her own Prince Charming, and after this past weekend actress Ginnifer Goodwin can say that dreams really do come true. Goodwin married fellow actor Josh Dallas in an intimate ceremony surrounded only by close friends and family. Ginnifer and Josh met on the set of ABC’s Once Upon a Time and play popular fairytale characters Snow White and Prince Charming. Ginnifer is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child and set to deliver soon.

Ginnifer and Josh have been secretive about the baby’s gender and due date in the press. Goodwin’s pregnancy style has been laid-back and comfortably stylish in public. Skinny maternity pants, casual sweaters, and structured coats have been her go-to items as of late. In a post-wedding photo, Ginnifer and Josh look sweet while walking arm-in-arm in long, button down winter coats. No heels in sight for Ginnifer; she’s been wearing motorcycle boots and other flat shoe styles. Comfort comes first!

Congratulations on your first child and new marriage, Ginnifer and Josh! We’re wishing for a fairytale ending for the happy celebrity couple.

Congratulations are in order for Fall Out Boy musician Pete Wentz and model girlfriend Meagan Camper.  The pair announced yesterday that they’re expecting a baby via an adorable Instagram post on Wentz’s personal account. In the picture, the couple shares a sweet kiss while Pete rests his hand on Meagan’s future baby bump.

This will be Camper’s first child and Wentz’s second. Pete’s son Bronx Mowgli (mom is Pete’s ex-wife Ashlee Simpson) is 5 years old and undoubtedly excited about becoming an older brother later this year.

Maternity Fashion: How the Stars Wear their Bumps

When it comes to maternity fashion, we can’t help looking to the stars to show us the cutest ways to dress up, or down, a baby bump.  Being in the public eye as your body changes can be a difficult spotlight.  With a love for fashion and some expert stylist advice, celebrities usually knock pregnancy style out of the park.

While all pregnant women glow, we’ve narrowed down the brightest and best-dressed expectant celebrity mamas of 2013.

We couldn’t talk about fashionable moms-to-be without starting with the princess of maternity fashion, Kate Middleton. Her courtship, wedding, pregnancy and now motherhood have been the subjects of media attention, and she certainly dressed for the limeline.  Her fashion choices were exquisite, and included playful prints, such as a white with black polka dot dress.  The empire waist is an ideal cut during pregnancy and the fit is impeccable.  We adore her three-quarter length modern blazer and black clutch to match.  And of course a princess needs her crown, or at least a feathered hat on this occasion.  We loved everything about Kate’s pregnancy style.  It was classy and sophisticated, and she dressed perfectly for every engagement.

Speaking of classy Kates, Kate Winslet also awes us with her maternity choices, especially on the red carpet.  As she prepares for baby number three, Kate keeps it easy, breezy in long gowns like this Jenny Packham dress.  She’s showing off her burgeoning pre-baby décolleté with a low v-cut neckline.  The jeweled detail under the bust blends nicely into soft pleating over her baby bump.  The flowing fabric just meets the floor, a great length for anyone with swollen feet.  We also love the slitted cap sleeves on this stunning navy dress.  It provides subtle ventilation and maximum mobility.  Beautiful from head-to-toe, Kate!

Some mamas go flowy and free during pregnancy, some do not.  Rock royalty Fergie wore her maternity style the way she wears everything: tight and edgy.  From belly-hugging dresses to rockstar leather pants, Fergie may be the only pregnant woman we know who can even pull off a belt!  A black ensemble with a shimmery sweater and clutch is a fabulous look, and simple to replicate with a maternity pant or maternity leggings.  If you’re feeling self-conscious about your growing proportions, boot-cut pants can balance out your outfit.  Hem them appropriately, like Fergie does, so you can be comfortable in flats.  And as Fergie shows us, all pregnant women should let the bump lead the way!

Last but certainly not least, HalleBerry amazes us with her rockin pregnancy body and phenomenal fashion choices. Halle walked the red carpet in formal gowns several times during her pregnancy.  We particularly loved her in a periwinkle one-shoulder Roberto Cavallari dress.  The braided detail along the strap and across the top is gorgeous and the slightly transparent side beading leads into a lovely pleat over her baby bump.  Halle is known for cut-out dresses that show off her incredible physique.  Pregnancy is no exception.  Even her chest and arm muscles have a pregnancy glow!

These pregnant mamas inspire us with their maternity fashion.  We want to put you on our best-dressed list too.  Show us your maternity style on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
