While people are trying to figure out their new normals and what life looks like in somewhat of a quarantine, there are some celebrities who are expecting babies, and who will likely be giving birth before the coronavirus has been contained. 

Health officials have estimated that the coronavirus will continue to spread and be an issue in the United States until July of 2020, meaning that many celebrities who have announced their pregnancies will likely give birth during it.

There are quite a few celebrities who will give birth during the coronavirus pandemic.

These 10 stars are giving birth during the coronavirus outbreak. Read on to find out which celebrities are becoming moms or expanding their families during this state of emergency.

Since ex-fiancé (and the father of her daughter, Matilda) Heath Ledger died in 2008, fans have been rooting for Michelle to find her happily ever after. In December of 2019, it was announced that the actress was expecting her first child with Hamilton director Thomas Kail. In the same breath, it was also revealed that the two were engaged.

The Queen & Slim actress is due to give birth to her first child at any moment now. She wed Little Fires Everywhere actor Joshua Jackson in 2019, and she's admitted that she's had a crush on him since he was Pacey Witter in Dawson's Creek.

Joshua spoke to E! News about being somewhat concerned for his daughter's birth because of the coronavirus pandemic, but that his excitement still outweighs those worried. 

"[I'm feeling] anxious because we're in this particular moment that we're in right now — just interfacing with anything to do with medicine is a little bit anxiety-inducing," he told the outlet. "In general, I'm super excited. I can't wait."

The actress informally revealed her pregnancy during a run-in with the paparazzi back in January of 2020, so we likely won't find out when her bundle of joy is coming until a future interaction with photographers. At the time her pregnancy was spotted, it was reported that she was about five months pregnant. If this is true, then the actress will likely be giving birth around May. 

The father of her baby is her beau, Sinisa Mackovic.

You're truly missing out if you don't keep up with the "1,2 Step" singer or her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, on social media. The two often gush about one another and their kids, Future (who Ciara had with ex-fiancé Future) and Sienna Princess, online. 

They announced Ciara's third pregnancy in January of 2020, and many estimated that she was already in her second or third trimester. The couple is clearly on their way to having their own football team.

The world was, frankly, shocked when Grimes and Elon Musk revealed their couple status at the Met Gala in 2018. The tech entrepreneur and the quirky Canadian singer seemed like an odd match, but they've clearly solidified their bond, since they are now expecting their first child together. 

The singer has since said that she will not raise her child with one specific gender. 

Elon is already a father to five sons.

Khloe Kardashian's bestie entered into motherhood on March 14, when she gave birth to son Ace Flores. The actress and reality star announced that she was expecting with ex-boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis in September of 2019. While Khloe commented on Malika's birth announcement with excitement over her new nephew, it's unlikely that Ace will get to interact with the Kardashians until the coronavirus spread has been contained.
