Some stars take their time creating a family while others seem to create insta-families, by announcing they’re expecting as soon as they’ve delivered. Maybe they were hoping to get the diaper years done in one go. Maybe there was an element of surprise involved. Or maybe these ladies just realized the role of ‘mom’ was their best casting yet. Here’s a look at some celebrity mamas who went from zero to all in without a lot of break in between.
