New year, new celebrity pregnancy announcements! And boy did we start off with a bang. Zooey Deschanel, who is often credited with giving us the best baby name of 2015 (Elsie Otter!) is going to be a mom for the second time. Jill Duggar is also pregnant with her second child. With her oldest son named Israel, I can’t wait to see what name she chooses next. There also are quite a few first-time moms on this month’s list, including actresses Lily Rabe, Laura Prepon, and lifestyle guru Lauren Conrad. So far 2017 is shaping up to be a great year for celebrity pregnancy announcements. Let’s keep that momentum going into February!
Here’s the full list:
Some interesting starbaby choices in November: the Blac China–Rob Kardashian pick of Dream Renee for their little girl drew a lot of attention, Alison Pill called her daughter Wilder, and Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis named their son Dimitri Portwood, while Ellie Kemper went for the more traditional James Miller.
Once again, Cara has produced an incredibly comprehensive international list of new celebrity babies.
Among the highest profile arrivals: Liv Tyler‘s Lula Rose, Alannis Morissette’s daughter Onyx Solace, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s Violet, and the late David Bowie‘s first grandchild, Stenton David.
Here’s the compete list:
Among the more high-profile: Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling named Esmeralda‘s sister Amada, the name of Mendes’s grandmother; Eddie Murphy‘s ninth child has the zippy appellation of Izzy Oona; Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone saluted two musical heroes for daughter Presley Bowie; swimming champ Michael Phelps chose the dynamic Boomer; Jenna Malone went poetic with Ode Mountain, and Soleil Moon Frye picked another word name for her fourth child: Story.
