2014 will be an amazing year for some of our most loved female celebrities as they become first-time moms or repeat moms. Though the babies haven’t arrived just yet, these celebrities are expecting their bundle of joy sometime in the near future. Here are 14 celeb moms who are due in 2014.
Many women face the challenge of choosing between a career and children, but there are plenty who choose both. Raising children is the hardest job to have and to balance that with a successful career is even harder. These 15 celebrity moms have been in movies, television shows, on runways and red carpets looking stunning, full of energy and have even brought their little ones along to celebrate with them. Hard work, drive and determination have served these women well in their public and personal lives.
Nia Long has starred in some of our most classic films like “Boyz in the Hood,” “Love Jones” and “The Best Man.” She’s been on episodes of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and many other projects and with the length of her career you may forget that she is a mother of two sons Massai, age 12 and Kez, age 1.
It hasn’t even been a year since Tamera Mowry-Housley gave birth to her adorable son, Aden, and she’s already making plans for baby number two.
“I am planning on having a second baby. My doula says the 10-month spot is the sweet spot because I’m having so much fun with my son. He sleeps through the night; he’s mobile, but not to the point where he’s breaking my back. That’s usually the time that people are like, ‘Okay, I’m ready for No. 2.’ That’s where I am right now,” the 35-year-old first time mom told OK! magazine.
She went on to say that if she is lucky enough to conceive twins this time, she would be thankful, but added that twins can be quite a handful.
“If I was blessed with twins, of course, I would be very grateful and very happy. However, having twins is a lot of work, so I physically—or mentally—can’t imagine taking care of two at the same time.”
Being a twin herself, Tamera also offered advice for anyone who may be raising twins, regarding the importance of individuality.
“It’s a lot of work. Make sure that people don’t see them as one person…It’s important to realize that they may look alike… and they may have come out at the same time, but they’re individuals. Treat them that way.”
Those Mowry girls love being moms, that’s for sure!
Between Brad and Angelina, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann, and Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson, it’s starting to look like Hollywood is taking baby making back to the olden days when parents had as many babies humanly possible.
Us Weekly is reporting that 41-year-old funny mama Maya Rudolph and her longtime partner, Oscar-nominated director Paul Thomas Anderson, have just welcomed their fourth child. Yes, fourth! So far, the pair is keeping the newborn’s gender under wraps, but the two are already parents to two girls and one boy: Pearl, 7, Lucille, 3, and Jack, 2.
Back in April, Maya confirmed her pregnancy on an episode of the “Ellen Degeneres Show” while doing media rounds with “Grown Ups 2″ co-star Salma Jayek, who joked:
“I remember last summer she said, ‘I can’t believe I’m having three children. I’m never doing this again.”
To that Maya responded:
“It’s amazing how we forget. It’s like that light pen thing they do in Men in Black. Somebody [pointed it in my face] and I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.’”
That’s clearly the case since Maya and Paul didn’t waste any time getting pregnant with baby number four. Wonder if there will be a fifth??
Congrats on the new addition to the family!
Many of us were stunned to learn that Halle Berry was expecting her second child at age 46. But it appears that the newly married Oscar Award-winning actress is not the only celebrity expectant mom in the 40+ club. Child star-turned-Hollywood-director, Kim Fields, is also expecting a bundle of joy!
The 44-year-old actress made the announcement during a recent appearance at Fox’s new daytime talk show, The Real, sending the audience into a boisterous applause.
“I have a big announcment. I’ve been in the lab, working both personally and professionally. One of the projects that I’ve been working on has been a co-production with my husband Christopher and… tada!” a glowing Kim said, as she rose from behind the desk to show off her protruding belly.
She went on to share that she’s having a boy!
“Yes, this is Quincy Xavier. He’s a boy, yes. Our first son, Sebastian Alexander, he’s six now. He’s very excited. My husband Christopher is also very excited. We’re very, very blessed.”
Unlike Halle, who referred to her second pregnancy as “the biggest shock of her life,” Kim revealed that she and her husband had been trying to get pregnant for some time now.
“It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years.”
The Platinum-haired beauty also shared that prior to this pregnancy, she miscarried twice.
“We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. Chris and I were very blessed to really have one another, to have our family and friends and our God to really get us through that.”
“If I’m encouraging to anybody … it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant. Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal ‘cuz certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started — my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible. Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said,’Okay.’ They tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.”
What a beautiful story!

Last week we told you that 46-year-old beauty Halle Berry is expecting her second child and it appears that The Call actress was just as shocked as we were by the news.
“I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful,” Berry gleefully told CNN‘s Alina Cho during a recent interview.
She went on to say that she is very excited and feels great.
“I feel fantastic. This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth,” she gushed.
This will be Halle’s second child and the first that she will share with her 47-year-old French actor fiance, Oliver Martinez. Halle’s daughter Nahla Aubry, 5, is from a previous relationship Halle had with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who is a Canadian model. After an extended custody battle over Nahla, both Gabriel and Halle were finally able to reach an ‘amicable’ custody settlement back in November at a Los Angeles County courthouse. Details of the agreement were never officially released.
Halle and Oliver have been engaged since 2010. Last summer, news leaked that the love birds were reportedly planning a South African wedding ceremony in Cape Town, but nothing further has come of those reports since they hit the gossip circuits back in June.
This is all really exciting news! We can’t wait to see little Nahla assuming the big sister role.
Congrats, Halle and Oliver.
Last month, we put Tamar Braxton on official baby bump watch after she made an appearance on 106 and Park wearing a rather baggy one-piece Matthew Williamson jumpsuit. This morning while she and her sisters were promoting the upcoming season of Braxton Family Values during an appearance on Good Morning America, the “Love and War” singer confirmed that she and hubby Vincent Herbert are expecting their first child!
“I have a love on top. I’m pregnant,” she gleefully told the audience.
“I feel great and greedy at the same time. This is the most I’ve eaten ever,” she continued.
As far as how soon we can expect for a little Tamar or Vince to enter the world, the mom-to-be says the baby will be here in no time.
“I don’t have that many months to go. Almost there!”
Fans are ecstatic about the news and her Twitter mentions are filled with well wishes. This is amazing news for the couple as they have each expressed interest in starting a family.
In other Tamar Braxton news, during an interview with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club, the youngest Braxton sister revealed that she will not be returning to Tiny Tonight.
“I’m not on that show anymore. Well you know, I only actually agreed to do two from the beginning. Because Tiny and I are really, really good friends. Everyone knows that. So like I told her I would do it and that was it. I’m saying that I wasn’t scheduled to do it in the first place,” she said.
She also expressed that she definitely has a problem with Claudia Jordan.
“Hell yeah. Even with your girlfriends, you just can’t sit up and talk about somebody’s man like that. You know what I mean?”
Ironically, Tamar is known for running down her sisters’ husbands, which they quickly pointed out.
“I’m growing,” she humorously replied.
We’ve very happy for Tamar and Vince!

Even the happiest, richest, and most famous Hollywood moms have suffered from it — it being postpartum depression (PPD). PPD can affect anyone because after a baby, so many emotions and feelings run through a new mother’s head, and with so many imbalances throughout the body, postpartum depression has actually become a very common, though temporary, disorder that a lot of women have and will suffer from. Here are 14 celebrity moms who have battled with it.
It looks like Tamar Braxton could possibly be joining the celebrity mommys club soon. In celebration of Valentine’s Day yesterday, the “Love and War” singer, accompanied by supportive hubby Vince Herbert paid a visit to the “livest audience” over at BET’s 106 and Park. During her visit she chatted it up with the hosts about her upcoming album and how it feels to work with her spouse, played a cute little game called “Know Your Boo” and treated the studio audience to a live performance.
Now we could be overthinking things, but what’s interesting to note about the youngest Braxton sister’s appearance on the show, is that overall, she made a lot of side poses. Not to mention the rather baggie Matthew Williamson one-piece jumpsuit she wore, which caused many eyebrows to raise. In addition to all of this, sources who were at the show tell the YBF that between filming, Tamar’s stylist continuously came out to adjust the waistband of her jumpsuit, as if they were attempting to camouflage or hide something. You know, like a slightly protruding baby bump!
As previously stated, we could be overthinking things and thus far, these are all speculations. But, doesn’t she appear to glowing as well? That would be wonderful news for Vince, who has made it quite obvious that he’s ready for a little one and she is the only Braxton sister that hasn’t had children yet. It seems that only time will reveal whether or not Tamar is a mommy-to-be, but we’ve officially got our eyes on “her” and we’ll keep you posted!
Check out more photos and video footage from Tamar’s 106 and Park appearance on the next page and decide for yourself. Is there a baby bump hiding under that jumpsuit?
