Mike Sorrentino and his wife, Lauren, are expecting their "situation" to get a little bigger in 2023. In late July 2022, the Jersey Shore alum took to Instagram to share their exciting news with the world.

"We have an amazing announcement!! We're a growing family! Baby on the way 🤰🏼 January 2023 🤍God is Good 🙏🏼," Mike captioned a photo of himself, Lauren and their first baby, Romeo Reign, who was born in May 2021.

As her due date neared, Lauren spoke to PEOPLE about the couple's preparation ahead of their newest addition. She shared that they'd already taken Romeo's old bassinet out of storage and put it in their bedroom. "We usually have morning snuggles before we get ready for the day, and [Romeo] goes right over to the bassinet now," she said in September.

Lauren noted that while she and her husband learned the sex of their baby, they're planning to keep it under wraps for now. "There are very few things in life that you get to keep as a special surprise, for some people," she explained.

Heather Rae and Tarek El Moussa confirmed the news of their baby-on-the-way to PEOPLE exclusively in July 2022. The duo shared that the Selling Sunset star's pregnancy came as a happy surprise since they were in the midst of IVF treatments when they found out, and even had made plans to transfer an embryo later on.

"I think when you least expect it and there's no stress in your life, the world just brought us what was meant to be," Heather said. "I'm so excited that it happened like this."

This is the couple's first baby together. From his previous marriage to ex Christina Hall, Tarek has two kids: daughter Taylor, 12 and son Brayden, 7. Because Heather already felt fulfilled as a "bonus mom" to the kids, the couple hadn't originally planned to have a child of their own. However that changed, said Heather, as their relationship went on.

"As your love grows more and more and you fall deeper in love with someone and you build this life together, I started picturing myself having a child with Tarek," she said. "I started thinking I just wanted to create something with the man that I'm in love with."

Gina Rodriguez celebrated her 38th birthday by telling the world that she and her husband are expecting their first baby. To announce the big news, the Someone Great star posted an adorable PDA-packed montage of videos and photos of her and Joe LoCicero, whom she married in May 2019. "This birthday hits different. ❤️," Rodriguez captioned her Instagram.

The star's expanding family might not come as a huge surprise since she's previously voiced her hopes to become a mom. In 2016, Rodriguez spoke about her baby fever on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saying she wanted to have her own child "so bad," and being on the set of Jane the Virgin only excited her more.

"I feel like they bring the baby up to me and my ovaries are like 'Ahh! Come here, baby!'" she said on the talk show.

Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine are adding a fifth member to their household. PEOPLE confirmed their big expecting news back in September, but the Victoria's Secret model has been talking about expanding her family for a while.

Back in November 2021, Prinsloo told Entertainment Tonight that when both of her daughters, Dusty Rose, 6 and Gio Grace, 4, were under the age of two, it was out of the question. "But I do also want five kids," she noted, adding, "You know what, never say never. We want a big family, who knows? We're leaving it up to fate and just what happens. What will happen, will happen. So there's no limits to it."

For baby no. 4, Blake Lively opted for a red carpet reveal, once again looking as glamorous as ever. As soon as the A Simple Favor stepped out at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women's Summit, all eyes were on the baby bump sparkling under her sequin minidress.

The incoming addition will make big sisters out of all three of Lively and Ryan Reynolds' daughters James, 8, Inez, 6 and Betty, 3. According to Dad, the three girls are excited to have another sibling around (though they won't learn the sex until the baby's birth). "They're in. They love it," the Deadpool star told Entertainment Tonight about his daughters' anticipation. "They're ready."

Lively has blessed her followers with a few cheeky updates and bump pics along her pregnancy journey. In one hilarious Instagram post, the Gossip Girl alum stitched two photos together, before-and-after style, of her in the gym with her trainer.

"Been doing @donsaladino's workout program for months now. Something isn't working," she joked in the caption, referring to the baby belly she sports in the "after" picture.

A few months later, in January 2023, Swank continued to marvel at her pregnancy in conversation with James Cordon on The Late Late Show.

"I feel like women are superheroes," she said. "What our bodies do? I have such, like, a whole newfound respect. I mean, I love women, I've always loved women, but now, I'm like, 'Wow, we can do this!'"

Brody Jenner is about to be a dad! He and his girlfriend, professional surfer Tia Blanco, have a little one on the way this year, and the baby is already their "little angel," as the duo wrote in their joint Instagram announcement.

We truly appreciate & love you all," the couple wrote in the caption. "We are excited to share with you the blessing of a new life in the new year…Our little angel is on their way 💙 Happy new year!"

The big news comes months after the duo went public with their relationship in June 2022, when Jenner posted a video of Blanco to his Instagram story. She later elaborated on their romance, and why they initially chose to keep it quiet, in conversation with E! News.

"We kept our relationship pretty private at the beginning," Blanco told the outlet in November 2022. "But we're both just so in love and it just happened naturally to share the fun things that we do and this exciting time in our life together."

A rainbow baby is due soon for Jessie J! The "Price Tag" singer shared a moving Reel on Instagram set to her song "Sunflower" on Jan. 6 to reveal her expecting news. The video shows her positive pregnancy test as well as a few baby bump photos as she's progressed. In the caption, she voiced both her nerves and excitement about making the announcement.

"I am so happy and terrified to finally share this," she wrote in the caption. "Please be gentle with me 🫂."

Since her miscarriage in November 2021, Jessie has spoken openly about her grieving process. She shared her heartbreak with an Instagram post, which has since been deleted. In her caption, she explained that she had "decided to have a baby on [her] own," but during her third scan she was informed that "there was no longer a heart beat."

Two weeks later, the artist shared another Instagram to follow up the one she had taken down. The caption reads: "I posted about losing my baby just hours after I was told. I reacted in work mode. It's safe to say I sometimes pour more energy into creating an unhealthy process of my own pain in front of a camera, than I do acknowledging it behind one in real time," she explained. "'The show must go on'" mentality reacted before the human in me did."
