Who’ll forget the unexpected pregnancy announcement the tennis champ made on a viral Snapchat post? Clad in a yellow bathing suit, Serena had captioned the picture “20 weeks”. It didn’t take long for netizens to realise Serena was probably about eight weeks pregnant when she had won her latest Grand Slam title in the Australian Open in late January. Her fiancé Alexis — the co-founder of online social media platform Reddit — posted a video of his late-night-snack run to the grocery store on Instagram recently. We also know why she has a rocking pregnancy bod ― while lesser mortals are scarfing down ice cream, potato crisps and pickles, the tennis legend is drooling over zucchini, asparagus and artichoke.

For most mothers-to-be, pregnancy’s the time to take things slow and clue themselves in on babycare basics. Yet, local singer Tay Kewei shows no signs of slowing down. She and fellow local singer turned significant other, Alfred Sim, are juggling designing their dream home with prepping for their bundle’s arrival. In a recent SmartParents interview, Kewei notes, “I’m absolutely enjoying the process, having to make so many decisions in such a short time, and hoping everything will turn out well!” (Photo: Tay Kewei)

Step aside, Kerry Washington! Another Scandal gladiator’s pregnant! Katie who plays Quinn Perkins in the series, made the joyous announcement in May during her appearance on late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live. When quizzed what name the couple has for their baby boy, Katie says her husband of five years wouldn’t mind having a little Lebron. If so, he’d be named after court superstar Lebron James, since Katie’s husband Adam, an actor is a huge basketball fan. (Photo: Katie Lowes/Instagram)

Serena’s not the only tennis superstar who’s welcoming a baby. British tennis player Andy Murray and his wife Kim Sears will be adding baby number two to the household, just 18 months after daughter, Sophia, arrived. The couple had tied the knot in April 2015. Kim’s pregnancy has the tennis community concerned that Andy might be too distracted to perform on the court. Indeed, the tennis player’s performance have been marred lately by niggling hip problems. Andy notes that it has been tough to be away from his firstborn. The dedicated sportsman missed several Sophia’s milestones — she uttered her first word and learnt how to walk when daddy was away. The loving father stays in touch with his family through Facetime calls. (Photo: Express UK)

Cash, a film producer, announced that his wife was expecting their third child on Instagram with an adorable Boomerang post that has since been viewed some 3.2 million times. Speaking to The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, Jessica jokingly noted her pregnancy was the result of “baby amnesia”. She laughed, “I have amnesia about having a baby, so that is why I allowed this [referring to her pregnancy] to happen… I don’t remember any of that — like strollers, like diapers, like cribs — I don’t remember any of it.” When she’s not busy doing films, Jessica is a successful mumpreneur who runs her own million-dollar beauty and wellness brand, The Honest Company. When it was launched in 2011, the business raked in US$10 million (S$137 million) in revenue in its first year! (Photo: Cash Warren/Instagram)

The soccer star is set to be a father for the fourth time! This time, his squeeze, Spanish model Georgina will be the one carrying their bundle. Cristinao’s three other children — a son and a set of twins (Eva Maria and Mateo) — were from surrogate mothers. The news of the couple’s pregnancy came just weeks following the birth of the twins, which sent the Portuguese player gushing in his Instagram post, describing them as “the two new loves” of his life. With her baby bump barely showing, the model posted an Instagram video of herself working her well-toned physique in booty-hugging gear. Many fans expressed surprise at her strenuous workout. One even commented, “I don’t know how you do that if you’re pregnant.”(Photo: Cristiano Ronaldo/Instagram)

Justin, who is best known for his role in the hit TV show Jane The Virgin, announced on Facebook some months back that his swede actress wife Emily is expecting their second child – and it’s a boy! The couple who are also parents to daughter, Maiya, 2 have never shied away from sharing parenting moments, even when it’s less ideal.  Take Justin’s recent Facebook post as an example. He shared a picture Emily took of Maiya throwing a mega tantrum in the middle of a busy supermarket. Instead of looking flustered and embarrassed, Justin and his dad looked at her with amusement. The dashing dad justified his reaction saying, “Our children are learning and processing so much information and they don't know what to do with all of these new feelings that come up…It's not embarrassing to me when she throw tantrums in the grocery store, or screams on a plane. I'm her dad…not yours.” Well said, Justin, well said.

The Facebook CEO announced in March that he and his paediatrician/philanthropist wife are preggers again and it’s another girl – just like he had hoped! The feminist dad, who grew up with three sisters, was over the moon to learn that his 1-year-old daughter was going to have a baby sister. He plans to make full use of his two months of paternity, but in parts.  He will take the first month right after the baby’s arrival, which is soon, and then a month off in December. Facebook is one of the few companies in the US that offers four months of maternity and paternity leave to all its employees. (Photo: Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook)

The Mindy Project star — who’s currently single — has remained tight-lipped about who the father of her baby is. She’s been previously romantically involved with actors Benjamin Nugent from 2008 to 2012 and BJ Novak from 2005 to 2007. When it comes to her parenting inspirations, Mindy turns to her late mum who died of pancreatic cancer. “My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did,” Mindy was quoted as saying in an interview on NBC’s Today Show. The actress is juggling her pregnancy with a packed schedule, filming the sixth and final season of her sitcom where she will tackle topics such as mum shaming. (Photo: Mindy Kaling/Instagram)

The England striker recently retired from international football, just in time for the birth of his fourth child later this month. Throughout the years, Wayne’s wife Coleen has dealt with rumours about her being “desperate” for a baby girl after having three boys. While she insists she’ll be happy with another boy, seeing how she and Wayne both come from a family of brothers, Mrs Rooney was also quick to add in an interview with Closer Magazine that “a girl would be nice, but you can’t pick and choose what you want.” (Photo: Wayne Rooney/Instagram)
