Anticipated Arrivals - OutdoorToys

This year is setting itself up to honour a major baby boom in the celebrity world. From Sofia Richie, Vanessa Hudgens, and Lala Kent, the list of A-listers in the coming months only continues to grow.

These exciting announcements come after the 2023 influx of babies. Dozens of celebrities welcomed little ones, including Kourtney Kardashian Barker, Blake Lively, and Serena Williams.

With this in mind, we want to introduce the hottest celebrities with a due date in 2024. We will look at multiple factors to determine which celebrity baby births are the most anticipated by fans globally.

We’ll leave no stone unturned, collecting the number of articles, Instagram data, search volumes and increases to determine which celebrity pregnancy is going viral.

Celebrities lead the way when it comes to trends, including their fashion, hair, and even their babies. Some parents take inspiration from their favourite celebrities and may even choose the same baby toys or prams. Many shoppers have opted for Molly-Mae Hague’s choice of stroller, which has since sold out in most places. Camilla Thurlow has also shared snaps of a baby play nest for her little ones, which will likely inspire fans.

We created a seed list of upcoming 2024 celebrity babies from various articles, including Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health and Planet Radio. This data is accurate as of 11/04/2024.

Google was used to find the number of news articles written about each celebrity baby, using the keywords ‘[celebrity] baby’.

We found the number of likes and comments for the Instagram announcement photo, and when these numbers were not available, we took the likes and comments for the next baby-related post.

To find the annual search volumes, Google Keyword Planner was used to find the number of search volumes for the celebrities in the last 12 months. This was also used to find the increase in searches for the celebrity the month after the announcement compared to the month before. Some data was unavailable as the announcement was too recent at the time of research. This data is accurate as of 16/04/2024.

To create the final Anticipated Arrivals score, we used the PERCENTRANK formula to create a score out of 10.
