Because one major baby announcement is never enough, InTouch Weekly is claiming today that Jennifer Aniston is – once again — pregnant. And we — once again — aren’t buying it.
Quotes from unnamed friends about Jen’s “glowing” appearance and photos of her looking vaguely heavier in winter clothes just aren’t enough anymore. Not after all the years of false alarms. Besides, the tab admits that her publicist is denying the rumor, so even they can’t swear it’s a done deal.
But we’ve had plenty of other exciting pregnancy and baby news this year — from Beyonce and Jessica Simpson to Tori Spelling and Snooki to Kourtney Kardashian and now Kate Middleton — so it would be a shame to use up all the big names before 2013 rolls around.
So what will the coming year hold in the way of celebrity baby bumps? Well, our crystal ball is out being repaired, but there are some famous women we’d sure like to see sporting maternity gear! Some are already mothers, while some are still waiting for that honor.
Take a look and tell us: Do you think any of our picks will be pregnant or delivering by this time next year?
Khloe Kardashian 1 of 10This is the one we're really crossing our fingers for. Khloe and husband Lamar Odom have been trying to have a baby for so long that it would be a real joy to see their dreams come true.
But do you believe this rumor that she's stopped fertility treatments?
Jennifer Aniston 2 of 10Sigh. Yeah, we know Jen's sick of all the rumors. We know she's said kids are "messy" and she can have a wonderful life without them. But now that she's planning her wedding to Justin Theroux, we just can't help hoping that maybe, just maybe, 2013 will be THE year...
Jennifer on the "messiness" of children.
Jessica Biel 3 of 10They were one of the cutest married couples of the year. So Jessica and Justin Timberlake would naturally be the cutest parents of 2013 — and according to reports, they do want to have a baby very soon.
Here's more on their baby plans.
Ashley Hebert 4 of 10In one of the few happy endings of the "Bachelorette" series, Ashley and her chosen beau, J.P. Rosenbaum, just got married. They both say they want kids, so a pregnancy announcement next year would make their reality romance complete.
J.P. talks about what kind of parents they'll be.
JWoww 5 of 10Now engaged to Roger Matthews, Jenni "JWoww" Farley is eager to start a family — and wouldn't it be awesome to see her trading pregnancy stories with her bestie, Snooki?
JWoww and Snooki talk babies.
Chelsea Clinton 6 of 10Her dad was President. Her mom is Secretary of State (and is being touted as a potential New York City mayor). The former First Daughter, married to Marc Mezvinsky, has political aspirations — but she also wants to be a mother. Wouldn't it be great to see her do both?
Here's what she has to say about politics and family.
Victoria Beckham 7 of 10She's not done yet! Mrs. Becks is a mom of four, but she reportedly wants to try for another girl so little Harper will have a sister.
More on Victoria's baby wishes.
Teresa Giudice 8 of 10The RHONJ star is already the mom of four beautiful girls (Gia, Gabriela, Milania and Audriana), but husband Joe is hoping they'll have a boy before calling their family complete. At 40, there's not much time to make that happen, so if Teresa wants to try for a son, it would be sooner rather than later.
Here's what Teresa says about having another baby.
Jennifer Hudson 9 of 10Although it would mean losing that incredible Weight Watchers-aided slim figure for a little while, the Oscar-winning singer-actress has confessed to wanting a baby sister for her son, David.
Jennifer talks about her weight and her baby girl dream.
Carrie Underwood 10 of 10Country sensation Carrie has said that she's too "selfish" to have children at this point. But maybe the new year will find her in a more family-oriented frame of mind.
Carrie talks about kids here.
