Thanksgiving is a day to be especially grateful for all the blessings and there are several celebs who have a new little bundle of joy to be thankful for. There's been quite the baby boom in the entertainment industry in 2012. It seems as if every day there is news of a celeb getting pregnant, adopting a baby or having a baby. Check out some of the stars who will be sharing the Thanksgiving table with a new child this year!
On June 29, 2012, the "Someone Like You " singer announced on her website that she was pregnant. The statement read " I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx." She reportedly gave birth on October 19. The singer and her guy, Simon Konecki, started dating in the summer of 2011.
After the "Jersey Shore" star announced that she was pregnant and engaged in March 2012, there were gasps of shock (and sometimes horror) and everyone seemed to have an opinion about what type of mother she was going to be. She gave birth in Livingston, New Jersey, on August 26 and one look at her Twitter page will tell you how much she adores baby Lorenzo. She constantly posts tweets and pictures of him, including one photo in which he's lounging in a gray ensemble.
Pregnancy rumors started flying in early 2012, but reports weren't deemed anything but talk until June when the actress displayed a baby bump in Hawaii during a vacation with her hubby, Brian Austin Green. The "Transformers" beauty and Brian started dating in 2004, got engaged in 2006 but split in 2009. They got engaged again in 2010 and married in June of the same year. The pair had their baby in September 2012, but kept it mum until October 17 when she wrote a post on her Facebook page that read "We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do. I gave birth to our son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th. He is healthy, happy, and perfect. We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love. Thanks to those of you who wish to send your positive energy and well wishes. May God bless you and your families abundantly."
The actress never actually publicly admitted she was pregnant, but in September, she and her husband, Will Kopelman, welcomed their first child and issued a public statement that read "We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives." The couple announced their engagement in January 2012 and got married on June 2 at the actress's home in California.
The "Sweet Home Alabama" actress and her husband, Jim Toth, welcomed a child into the world on September 27. Her rep issued a statement that read "Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today. Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled." While it's the first child for the couple, she has two children from a previous marriage to Ryan Phillippe. She and Jim started dating in early 2010 not long after her split with Jake Gyllenhaal. They got engaged in December and were married in March 2011.
It's going to be an extra happy Thanksgiving in many homes this year!
