We begin staring at them, wondering if they’re merely the result of a big burrito lunch; then, soon enough, we marvel at their size in proportion to their petite carriers and placing bets on when they’ll pop — yes, we’re talking baby bumps. Particularly those sported by our favorite pregnant celebrities. It’s fascinating how some famous ladies, like Megan Fox and Gisele Bunchen, play coy for months, hiding behind cleverly draped dresses or simply ignoring questions when we know they’d never allow themselves to acquire food babies like the rest of us. Others, like Snooki, Tori Spelling and Vanessa Lachey, flaunt their bumps like crazy, posting pics on Twitter, posing in front of the paps in revealing outfits. To each her own!
But once again, we’d like to make their beautiful maternal bodies into a fun little game to while away your summer afternoon. Guess the celebrity baby bump! And don’t cheat by studying the thumbnails here; that’s just silly.

These two have been off the radar for some time now, have they not? But this picture tweeted by Vanessa Minnillo, with her husband, Nick Lachey is just too cute too ignore. “My Happiness… My Family! Ahhh, My Boys! (Wookie included) …” was the message. ‘Nessa’s baby bump rivals Jessica Simpson‘s — before she popped. J.Simp being Lachey’s ex, that is. But let’s not get into that, but instead get into how gorgeous Vanessa’s looking. She’s glowing and it shows, especially with that teeny bandeau top she’s in. Also, does that tweet mean she’s having a boy? “Ahhh, My Boys,” includes Nick, but also includes her yet-be-born son, which was confirmed by the couple as they revealed the gender last month saying they were thrilled at the news. Vanessa announced she was preggers in March, FYI, and she’s due sometime in September. That’s two months away. We can’t imagine her belly getting even bigger because it’s already so huge. We wish the couple love and luck for the last two months of their journey and can’t wait to meet their special little man. Wonder if they’ve already got a name picked out and ready?

Y’all know how much Snooki wants to have this baby, right? She’s resorted to cuddling random things! We also know that Snooki is having a baby boy and was contemplating naming him either Lorenzo or Jianni Jr. after her fiance, Jianni LaValle. Well, now the couple have decided which way they’re going to go, which the Snookster accidentally revealed to USA Today. Best pal, Jenni “JWoww” Farley even tried to give her an out, when the petite pregnant Jersey Shore star made the revelation, saying, “Well, it’s a name she’s thinking about.” But the cat was well and truly out of the bag so Snooki responded with, “No, it’s done.” So, what’s the name, you ask. Cue in a drumroll because they’ve decided to name their baby boy, who is due in September — Lorenzo! We think that name is molto bene. They just did their Italian roots proud, and we can’t wait to see this adorable little bambino. Just two months more and we’ll get to see the newest member of the Jersey Shore family muscle his way into the world. Let the sniffles begin!

Wha? The world is going to welcome a tiny new chanteuse in September? While we only heard about it on June 29, apparently Adele’s pregnancy has been a well-kept secret since, oh, round about February. “Adele has barely left the house in recent months, so she could keep this to herself for as long as possible,” a source allegedly confirmed to Heat Magazine, noting that the “Rolling In The Deep” singer was conspicuously absent from the Billboard Awards (which she dominated) in May. While we’d like to postulate that maybe Adele just fell asleep on the couch that night, it seems more likely that she is one of a growing number of celebrities who hold off until the last possible second before dropping their pregnancy news. Frankly, we don’t get it. Don’t these ladies know it’s going to make people only want to get in your business more? Remember all the rumor-mongering that surrounded…
If you had told us the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries divorce was going to be a disaster, we would have shaken your hand, happy to meet Captain Obvious of the U.S.S. No Duh You Guys Come On. How wrong we were to underestimate mankind’s ability to turn everything into an even bigger trainwreck than we’d imagined. Let that be humanity’s greatest legacy! As for Kris Humphries’ legacy, he will have his basketball career, his 72-day-long marriage to a Kardashian of his choosing and, according to TMZ, a child he allegedly conceived with recent ex-girlfriend Myla Sinanaj. Oh Kris. You (allegedly) done goofed.
While every baby is a blessing (especially to Kim Kardashian, who is probably rolling around on a pile of Kanye‘s summer minks and laughing right now), it wasn’t that long ago that Kris and Myla were publicly at each other’s throats over her right to even refer to herself as his girlfriend. Humphries was allegedly concerned that having a new relationship would negatively affect the financial outcome of his divorce from Kim, though he probably should have been concerned about all the unprotected sex he was allegedly having with other ladies. TMZ reports that Myla is approximately three months pregnant and certain that the child is Kris’. More importantly, it’s not Kim’s! Enjoy a good laugh with you can, girl. There’s no telling what insane-o detail will emerge tomorrow!

It’s a day for baby news. We just published that Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves were expecting their third baby, but the stork isn’t quite done with his deliveries. Claire Danes is also pregnant with baby number one with husband, the Brit hottie actor, Hugh Dancy. “No plans, but that would be fun,” is what she told People last October when asked about whether they were thinking of having children. BTW, we still remember Hugh totally stealing the show from Richard Gere in King Arthur, back in 2004. And let’s not forget, what is turning out to be an epic role, in his latest film, Hysteria. Which also makes us think about how her pregnancy is going to affect Claire’s role in Homeland? The baby news was just announced yesterday and we don’t know what month she’s in, when she’s going to start showing and when she’s due. But that baby bump’s bound to come around pretty soon. Season two’s due to air in September this year, so we think she may just be in the clear. Congratulations to the low-key couple! We wonder if they’re having a boy or a girl?

Wow, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are really turning into lean mean baby machines! Camila is now pregnant with baby number three, adding to their brood of son, Levi, 3, and daughter, Vida, 2, and who are just about the two cutest kids ever. Matthew announced the news on Twitter yesterday, writing, “Happy birthday America, more good news, Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep livin,” which you can almost hear him saying in his signature drawl, right? The same message was tweeted by Camila, about a half hour before Matt sent it out. This news just adds to the celebrations in the McConaughery-Alves household. Matthew and Camila just got married last month! Which was a long time coming, we may add, but do you think they sped up the wedding just so she wouldn’t be baby-bumpin’ on the big day? It’s possible! Unless, they just got to know? We don’t know when the baby is expected, so we don’t have a timeline just yet. All we know is that we’re super happy for the gorgeous couple and wish them luck! We hope to get more updates soon.

Girls having girls! Or boys; it’s probably too early to know for sure. While she’s most well-known for portraying a free spirit that’s as likely to lose a baby under a gazebo as she is to take care of it, the real-life Girls star Jemima Kirke is officially expecting her second child with husband Michael Mosberg; the baby will join 20-month-old sister Rafaella Israel. Man, if you thought Jessa’s boho peasant tops were flowy before! We are about to enter a whole new universe of flowiness!
As soon as we stopped wishing Jemima congratulations, however (oh, and congratulations!), we started wondering how this will affect the second season of Girls. Based on a recently released still of Lena Dunham‘s Hannah and Andrew Rannells’ Elijah shooting on the show’s set this week, it looks like they’re already filming the next set of episodes. *Gasp* Do you think that (*spoiler alert if you haven’t seen this season’s finale) Jessa will be pregnant with Chris O’Dowd‘s baby when Jemima gets visibly pregnant? They did get married after 3 weeks, after all. Seems like an almost too perfect story line for Jessa to have to write into the plot…

Have you noticed how, over the past two years, all our favorite supermodels have been getting married and having babies? Everyone from Kate Moss to Alessandra Ambrosio to Adriana Lima to Miranda Kerr, to most recently, Molly Sims. And now it’s Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated hottie, Marisa Miller‘s turn. Marisa and her record producer husband, Griffin Guess, have been together for six years now and have announced that they’re going to have their first child. She told People that “the time feels right. My sisters and I will all have babies in 2012, so it’s such an exciting time.” She also added, “My husband and I have always looked forward to starting a family, but also wanted to enjoy just being married.” Marisa, who is 33-years-old, is due in the late fall and is thoroughly enjoying carrying her baby. She revealed, “Even though I’m exhausted, gaining weight and breaking out from all the hormones, I’m really enjoying my pregnancy. It’s all for the baby so I couldn’t care less!” With those genes, we’re can only guess as to how beautiful this baby is going to be. They haven’t releases any news on whether they’re expecting a boy or a girl, and we don’t know if they know themselves yet. Major congratulations to the new soon-to-be parents!

That “bump” you see on Gisele in the photos taken of Gisele last week looks a hell of a lot like what we like to call “breakfast.” But yeah, on a supermodel, it very well could be proof that the 32-year-old Brazilian beauty is in fact three months pregnant with her second child with husband Tom Brady. Us Weekly cited an unnamed source as confirmation that 2-year-old Benjamin was going to be a big brother.
On the other hand, the Boston Herald says Gisele’s rep denied the report. “She has not shared any baby news with any of her inner circle,” the spokesperson said in an email to the paper. “I think it is a slow news day at Us lol.”
Whether or not the rumor is true, we would like to say these two know how to make a cute baby — and Tom’s got another cutie, Jack, with ex Bridget Moynahan — so we certainly understand wanting to keep at it!
