Ivanka Trump joins the growing list of pregnant celebrities

There must be something in the water, what with news of celebrity pregnancies making the headlines on an almost daily basis this year. Next in line to jump on the baby bandwagon is Ivanka Trump.

Trump, 29, daughter of Aprentice star Donald Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer, tied the knot in a lavish ceremony last year at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

Choosing her Twitter to spread the happy new, the glamorous businesswoman wrote: “I have been wanting to share some amazing news with all of you for some time…I’m pregnant!”

“Jared and I couldn’t be more excited.”

Last year she told OK! magazine that seeing older brother Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa become parents to two children got her thinking about starting her own family

“My brother is over-the-moon, and he’s an amazing father,” Trump said. “And his wife is an incredible mother to their two beautiful children. It’s very encouraging to see such a happy, beautiful family, and I hope to have one of my own one day.”

Well, that “one day” isn’t far off for Ivanka, the second oldest of Donald Trump’s five children.

Other pregnant stars include Alicia Silverstone, Kate HudsonSelma BlairNatalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Victoria Beckham and Owen Wilson’s girlfriend  Jade Duell , Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard.
