The Next Generation of Famous Babies About to Make 2017 Their Year

2016 was a big year on the celebrity baby front. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds added to their family. As did Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

Those two alone all but secured the future of Hollywood.

You know, unless their children decide to become brain surgeons or theoretical physicists.

But if that ends up happening, the 2017 class of celebrity children will be there to pick up the slack.

Here are our favorite stars who are expecting their own mini-mes in 2017.

"I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into. How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen, but the language and conversations are spoken in?"
