Celebrities rarely follow tradition. The latest trend among Hollywood A-listers? Announcing a pregnancy right after an engagement. Our favorite red carpet regulars are not only brides-to-be but moms-to-be as well, adding an extra bundle of joy to the excitement of the journey towards the altar.
Most recently, Mila Kunis announced there's a bun in her oven just mere weeks after revealing she is engaged to Ashton Kutcher. Other expecting-and-engaged stars include Scarlett Johansson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Ciara, and of course, Olivia Wilde, whose best 2014 Oscar red carpet accessory (besides fiancé Jason Sudeikis!) was her growing baby bump. These stunning ladies prove "first comes love then comes marriage" may no longer ring true in Tinseltown.
Famous faces foregoing standard wedding conventions is nothing new: Jennifer Garner was actually four months pregnant with baby Violet when she and Ben Affleck tied the knot all the way back in 2005.
Here, a master list of blushing celebrity brides-and-mommies-to-be. Although starting a family is no doubt a very personal choice, we must admit these famous and expectant brides have an added glow. (Hellooo, did you see how gorgeous Ciara looked at her baby shower?!) And if you choose to make like Jessica Simpson and postpone the wedding until after the baby is born, that makes for an even more special family-filled ceremony.
