Is it spring season or is it baby season? For Hollywood it looks like it’s both. There is a long list of celebs that are expecting and a few that have just welcomed a new family member into their life.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds currently have a 16-month-old daughter named James. It was confirmed last week that James is going to be a big sister because they are now expecting baby number two. Sources say they are thrilled about the news and earlier in March Lively told Marie Claire Magazine that she would love to have a big family. It looks like they’re heading in the right direction.

Two people on the same page as Blake and Ryan are Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling. They currently have a 19-month-old daughter named Esmeralda Amanda and are also expecting baby number two. Mendes has stated in the past that she never planned on getting married and having kids while Gosling has said in an interview with Hello! Magazine that he knows he’s with the person he’s supposed to be with. It looks like Mendes had a bit of change in plans, but it’s nice to see the happy couple working together to raise a beautiful family.

Ellie Kemper is expecting her first child with husband, Michael Koman. The star of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and guest star on “The Office”, announced to Jimmy Fallon last Wednesday that she is pregnant. To celebrate, she was gifted a pint of the Ben and Jerry’s The Tonight Show ice cream. Her pregnancy didn’t affect the most recent filming of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” until the end of the season when she was scheduled to ride a roller coaster. Kemper and her boss, Tina Fey came up with a clever plan to tell everyone she just had a back injury. Nevertheless, Kemper looks great with her pregnancy glow.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are reportedly putting their divorce on hold due to Fox being pregnant. They currently have two kids, Noah, 3, and Bodhi, 2, and are allegedly very excited for baby number three. The pair split last year after five years of marriage and filed for divorce in August. A source tells E! News that they are currently getting along great as they are best friends and know each other very well. Hopefully they can work out their relationship before the birth of their third baby.

Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine are baby number one and announced on Tuesday that they’re expecting a baby girl. Sources have said they are selling their homes in New York and Los Angeles preparing to look for a new home to start their family. Prinsloo is five months pregnant so we’ll have to wait four more months to see what name they pick out for their baby girl.

Chrissy Teigan and John Legend’s baby girl arrived on Thursday and has already made her Instagram debut. Teigan and Legend named their daughter Luna Simone Stephens and the Instagram caption of the baby said “Hi my lulu.” It looks like these two are enjoying being parents as much as they had talked about. Teigan had opened up about her fertility struggles on FabLife, so it was exciting news when she was finally able to get pregnant. Good luck to Teigan and Legend during this new chapter in their life.

No matter the season, it’s nice to see all the celebs we see on the big screen starting families of their own. It will be interesting to see which other celebs announce their baby news as we spring forward.
