Hollywood baby bumps always catch our attention — especially when they belong to young stars. Here's a look at some of the hottest celebrities who got a jump start on motherhood.

Kristin Cavallari

In April 2011, reality TV star Kristin Cavallari became engaged to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. In January 2012, the couple announced bigger news: They were expecting their first child. The world welcomed Camden Jack Cutler on August 8, 2012.

Ashlee Simpson

Despite her big sister’s failed marriage, Ashlee Simpson wed Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz at just 23. At 24, she gave birth to their son Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Following in her big sis Jessica's footsteps, Ashlee filed for divorce two years later citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Jamie Lynn Spears

No one can forget when Nickelodeon’s "Zooey 101" star Jamie Lynn Spears gave birth to daughter Maddie Aldridge at age 16.  Mother Lynne Spears said she "was in shock" when she heard her teen daughter was pregnant.

Britney Spears

Jamie Lynn's big sister Britney was the first to become a mom when she gave birth to Sean Preston at 24, the first of her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline. Later, Spears made headlines around the world by posing nude on the cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine while pregnant with her second son, Jayden James.


Her music makes her sound wise beyond her years, but Adele is just 24. The British singing sensation announced she was expecting her first child with Simon Konecki, her beau of just over one year.

Witherspoon met actor Ryan Phillippe on her 21st birthday and they wed two years later. The couple didn't wait much longer to have children; Witherspoon gave birth to their first, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe, when she was just 23.
