5. EMMA STONE
The Emma's are coming in stronger with the new moms club as actress Emma Stone delivered her firstborn with her husband Dave McCary in Los Angeles.

Whilst these celebrities have already welcomed their babies, there is a long list of a-liners who are still waiting in anticipation for their little ones to arrive. Kirsten Dunst is amongst those who are still pregnant.
