Halle Berry: Berry appeared on the cover of In Style magazine with her growing baby bump on full display. The 41-year-old Oscar-winning actress admitted to a long struggle to get pregnant and told the magazine, "I may only do this one time, so I want this moment to be as big as it can be. I want the biggest bang I can imagine." Berry and her boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry, later welcomed daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry.

Angelina Jolie: As with their daughter Shiloh, Jolie and Pitt welcomed twins Knox Léon and a Vivienne Marcheline into the world outside of the U.S. This time the international locale was Nice, France.

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz: The pop singer and her rocker husband first denied their bundle of joy existed until after the two wed in an "Alice and Wonderland" themed wedding. In November the pair welcomed son Bronx Mowgli, named for the Disney Jungle Book character, and proud papa Wentz told Details magazine, "It was a happy accident. But I think that certain things happen for a reason in your life, and maybe it was time to put the wild child in a cage."

Clay Aiken: Former American Idol runner-up singer Clay Aiken was inspired by the birth of his son Parker; shortly after the baby's birth, who was conceived via in vitro fertilization with Aiken's friend Jaymes Foster, Aiken declared to the press that he was gay. Aiken told People magazine, "It was the first decision I made as a father. I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn't raised that way, and I'm not going to raise a child to do that."

Jennifer Lopez: At first singer Lopez denied mum was the word; finally after a series of form-hiding stage outfits Lopez confirmed that in fact mum was the word. Lopez and husband Mark Antony welcomed twins Max and Emme and Lopez told People magazine, ""I miss feeling them inside of me. It's funny - when their little umbilical cords fell off, I cried. That was the last attachment we had where it was just us."

Jessica Alba: Actress Alba and her husband Cash Warren welcomed baby girl Honor Marie Warren. Of her daughter Alba told People magazine, "I don't want to be my child's best friend; I want to be a mom," Alba said weeks ago of her parenting style.
