Fantasia Barrino

As December comes to a close, celebrity baby news seems to be more prevalent than ever before. To date, the list of celebrities expecting a child within the next few weeks/months ranges from the beautiful Beyoncé to mommy-to-be Jessica Simpson and many others in between. Angelina Jolie is not currently pregnant but admits that she and hubby Brad Pitt have not ruled out the thought of having more children. With seven and counting, the Brangelina crew might be the new-aged Brady Bunch.

Last week, reports rolled in that Fantasia Barrino would be expecting her second child to accompany daughter Zion, 10. From American Idol to Dancing With the Stars winner J.R Martinez, it seems as though celebrities from the far west to the north east and from the deep south are on the plus one list for the upcoming year.

Fans around the world who are inspired by the soft, sweet tunes of Eric Church, 34, were thrilled to hear that he and wife Katherine welcomed a baby boy on October 3rd of this year. It wasn’t until yesterday that the media got their first glimpse at the southern cutie, Boone McCoy Church. According to Church in a recent interview with PEOPLE, “Everyone always tells you what an awesome and unique experience being a parent is, but words can never do the feeling justice,” he said.
