Apparently it isn’t just the future stars of MTV reality shows having unprotected sex! The baby boom bonanza in Hollywood is out of control as we seem to hear about a new expecting celeb about every 12 hours or so. To help you keep track of all these buns in the ovens I’ve compiled a list of the Top 25 Pregnant Celebrities that includes photos and a little background info on the expecting moms and baby daddies as well as how the pregnancies were announced.
(As far as my ranking criteria it’s a mixture of fame levels combined with my own personal biases)
(Remember, these are as of January 17, 2011 so if Jennifer Aniston announces she’s pregnant tomorrow don’t make an angry comment about leaving her off the list!)

When, where and how far along? E! online was the first to report on the rumored pregnancy on August 17, but it was hackers who actually broke the story after stealing photos of Bethany getting a sonogram as well as the sonogram pictures themselves. Bethany Joy Galeotti confirmed the rumors soon after with a post on her blog:
Well, it’s no secret now that Michael and I are expecting a baby. That is not an easy thing for me to share, because I’m quite introverted and the idea of people I don’t know (however friendly and dedicated) being included on intimate details of my life is extremely uncomfortable for me, especially when it’s something as tender and fragile as a little life that looks to me for protection.
However, I share this with you now because, as many of you know, our private “Baby Galeotti” announcement which included photos of me receiving my ultrasound and copies of our sonogram pictures, was stolen by a hacker and posted for the public. Devastating though this was and certainly a rape of privacy and intimate moments between my husband and me and our family– I know that something good can come from this…
Bethany Joy Galeotti has been married to Michael Galeotti for five years. (For those who might argue the merit of placing Bethany this high on the list, all I have to say is… I love Haley!)

Baby Daddy: Soccer player David Beckham, 35
When, where and how far along? Seeing as how the notoriously thin Victoria Beckham, 36, wouldn’t have been able to conceal a baby bump very long, the pregnancy confirmation came before there was ever a chance of a rumor ever getting started! People got exclusive confirmation from the Beckham’s rep on January 9, who told the magazine, “David and Victoria Beckham are delighted to confirm they are expecting their fourth child in the summer.” The rep goes on to say, “Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are very excited about the arrival of their new brother or sister.” As you might have guessed, the child will be the fourth for the British super-couple.

It’s been tough because I’ve been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy.” The announcement wasa sneak peek at a three-part Access Hollywood interview with the superstar. In the interview the couple talks about the devastation of suffering through a miscarriage two years prior. As an added bonus, Mariah has since revealed that she is having twins! Someone as divatastic as Mariah can’t have just one baby right? Right!
1. Kim Zolciak

No word yet if Kim plans on launching a line of wigs for newborns. (I mentioned earlier that we aren’t afraid to show favoritism to the Bravolebrities and it doesn’t get and more Bravolebritastic than Kim Zolciak!)
