Most Anticipated Celebrity Babies of 2013

kimkardashianCelebrity pregnancies are a hot topic on Answers.com. You’re always curious about what stars are expecting and when. Maybe it’s the “they’re just like us” factor that entices us. Is it reassuring to see A-listers suffer from morning sickness and excessive weight gain just like us? Or maybe it’s simpler than that and no one can resist a sweet newborn, celebrity or not. Either way, here’s our list of the most anticipated celeb babies of 2013.

The royal offspring of Prince William and his commoner-turned-duchess wife, Kate Middleton, tops our list of the most highly anticipated celebrity baby due to arrive in 2013. Rockstar progeny are a dime a dozen. A tot heir to the throne? Now that doesn’t happen often. Kate is due in early summer with the child that will be the future king or queen of England.

What do you get when you mix the DNA of Hollywood’s most overexposed reality star and a narcissistic rapper? Kimye, the nickname of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s baby-to-be. Kanye announced the pregnancy at an Atlantic City concert in December and the Internet has been abuzz since. Get this — Kim’s divorce from Kris Humphries (remember their infamous 72-day marriage?) won’t even be finalized by the time the baby is born. Oy. Prepare yourselves for an onslaught of coverage about this babe.

Who else is expecting a bundle of joy in 2013? People Magazine’s sexiest man alive, Channing Tatum, will become a father in 2013. Jenna Bush, daughter of former president George W. Bush, is pregnant with her first baby and due in spring. And Jessica Simpson announced her second pregnancy, only seven months after giving birth to her daughter, Maxwell.
