Celebs Who Got Pregnant Right After A Huge Breakup

Breaking up is hard to do, and it's even harder to do when you're in the spotlight, you're still smitten, and you have babies on the brain. The pressure of starting a new relationship increases tenfold when you add a potential baby to the mix, just as the urge to iron out past issues grows stronger when a hookup with an ex ends up with the former couple expecting.

From on-again-off-again couples to those who called it quits for good, these stars all began expecting when they were freshly out of long-term relationships — and reportedly not all of them planned their pregnancies (here's looking at you, Kristin Cavallari and Megan Fox).

Some of these celebrity couples were able to work it out with their previous partners post-pregnancy, while others simply moved onward and upward with new baby mamas and baby daddies. These stars all got pregnant (or got someone else pregnant) after a huge breakup.

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler had a maybe-oops baby

In July 2011, Kristin Cavallari and then Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler called it quits on their engagement after 10 months together, according to People. A source told the magazine that Cutler dumped Cavallari while she was in the midst of "planning her dream wedding" to the pigskin star.

By that November, however, the pair somehow had a change of heart, and Cavallari revealed on Twitter (via People) that she and Cutler were engaged yet again.

What may have been behind the reconciliation? A bun in the oven. Cavallari's rep confirmed to People in January 2012 that the former Laguna Beach starlet was pregnant with Cutler's child. Their first child, son Camden Jack, was born in August 2012, indicating that Cavallari likely conceived the baby shortly after Cutler attempted to call it quits.

She admitted that Camden Jack wasn't planned, telling Glamoholic (via People), "It's so crazy to look at your life and see how far you've come. I always wanted kids, but I always thought I would have kids later on in life, maybe when I turn 30." She added that they "weren't trying to have kids ... We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility."

Katie Holmes' quick Cruisin'

Katie Holmes and American Pie (1999) star Chris Klein got engaged in December 2003 after five years together. They called it quits in March 2005, and by April 2005, Holmes had made her red carpet debut with none other than Tom Cruise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cruise and Holmes announced their engagement just two months later, and by October 2005 the couple revealed that Holmes was expecting their first (and only) child, Suri Cruise, who was born in April 2006.

Klein told People (via the San Francisco Gate) of Holmes' rapid-fire rebound romance with Cruise, "When we were breaking up, we kept it to ourselves for a while. It looked like it was Katie and Chris together and two seconds later Katie and Tom together, but that's ridiculously compressed."

He added, "Kate was incredibly respectful about the decision she was making to move on. She called and said, 'Listen I want you to know before you see it anywhere else.'" Quick, but courteous.

Did Morena Baccarin overlap her husband and her baby daddy?

Gotham star Morena Baccarin's then-husband, Austin Chick, filed for divorce from the actress in July 2015, according to TMZ. By September 2015, Baccarin's rep confirmed to Us Weekly that she and Gotham co-star Ben McKenzie were dating, and that Baccarin was pregnant with their first child together.

Here's where it gets pretty messy: TMZ reports that in a September 2015 filing in the divorce case, Chick alleged that Baccarin informed him that she conceived McKenzie's baby in approximately June 2015. Chick claims that she got pregnant when they were still together, trying to work out their issues, and still "sharing a bed." Entertainment Tonight reported that Chick only found out about Baccarin and McKenzie's relationship (and her pregnancy) just days before the news was splashed across headlines around the world.

Baccarin, however, claims that she and Chick had discussed separating as early as March 2015. Either way, that all happened very quickly.

Tyga questioned the paternity Kylie Jenner's baby

Kylie Jenner was in an on-again-off-again relationship with Tyga for about three years when they abruptly split for good in April 2017.

That same month, she was snapped cozying up to rapper Travis Scott at the Coachella Festival and at a Houston Rockets game. People then reported in September 2017 that Jenner was pregnant and due in February. Stormi, Scott and Jenner's daughter, was indeed born on Feb. 1, 2018. If you do the math, that means Jenner got pregnant within the first two months of her and Scott's relationship.

The speed of the pregnancy wasn't lost on Tyga, who posted and then deleted on social media (via TMZ) an implication that the bun in Jenner's oven was his. However, The Sun reports that Jenner got sick of Tyga's speculation and rumors that Stormi was really his daughter. She allegedly gave him a paternity test to shut him up and get him out of her life once and for all.

Bristol Palin's second 'huge disappointment'

Bristol Palin's love life is never short of baby daddy drama.

In May 2015, Palin called off her wedding to then-fiancé Dakota Meyer just five days before they were scheduled to walk down the aisle, per a Facebook post by her famous former Vice Presidential candidate mom Sarah.

A month after the breakup, Bristol, an advocate for abstinence who already had a son named Tripp with ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston when she was a teen, announced that she was pregnant.

"I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant," she wrote on her blog. "I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect Tripp's and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy. My little family always has, and always will come first. Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful."

Bristol only confirmed that Meyer was the father after a bitter custody battle and paternity test, but the pair later reconciled and tied the knot. They welcomed a second daughter, Atlee Bay, to their brood in May 2017 before splitting again in February 2018.

Mackenzie McKee's breakup baby

In April 2016, TMZ reported that Teen Mom star Mackenzie McKee was pregnant with her and husband Josh's third child — but that she and Josh had split before she revealed her bump to the world and that the couple lived apart. They had previously split in April 2015, but clearly reconciled at least briefly, TMZ reported. Entertainment Tonight reported in August 2016 that Mackenzie and Josh were back together when they welcomed their third child, son Broncs Weston.

Mackenzie later told Radar Online of their temporary estrangement, "When I came home I had postpartum depression. That pushed Josh away. There was no support. He hated who I became." She recalled, "He said, 'I don't love you, you're crazy.' I was suicidal. He said, 'Go kill yourself, but don't do it in front of me and the kids.'"

The tab also reported that McKee admitted that their issues "led her to text another man," but that she never cheated on Josh and they worked it out.

Nev Schulman and Laura Perlongo's reconciliation came with a kid

Catfish host Nev Schulman and his wife, Laura Perlongo, actually split right before she became pregnant with their first child, daughter Cleo, who was born in October 2016.

Schulman told Us Weekly that he and Perlongo broke up because he was actually "too in love with her" after a whirlwind romance swept him off of his feet. Say what? He explained, "I just got out of a thing, and I had been damaged by that, and I felt that maybe I was all messed up, and I wasn't ready. I screwed it up and then I had to win her back."

It wasn't necessarily easy to get Perlongo to settle down and be exclusive with him, however. She admitted, "I don't think I officially took him back until we got pregnant."

It all worked out: People reports that the couple reconciled, became parents and joyfully tied the knot in July 2017, looking as happy and in love as ever.

Who dat, who dat? Not Nick Young's baby mama

Talk about a rebound.

In June 2016, rapper Iggy Azalea announced she and Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young had split after reports he'd cheated on her numerous times (and that she caught him on their security cameras bringing other women into the home they shared).

Just weeks later, it was revealed Young was going to be a dad for the second time.

Young's ex-girlfriend, Keonna Green, told Us Weekly that they'd rekindled their romance in September 2015 — months after Young had proposed to Azalea — and she found out she was pregnant.

"It was 200 percent Nick's child," Green said. "He's always supportive, but he was in shock. With him being in a public relationship, he didn't know how to handle it. We didn't get into [how he would tell Azalea]. I felt it was his decision how to handle it."

The couple, who already had a son together before Young and Azalea began dating, welcomed daughter Navi in October 2016. In June 2018, Young and Green made their red carpet debut together at the NBA Awards.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green's sweet surprise

Megan Fox filed for divorce from Brian Austin Green in August 2015 after five years of marriage and about a decade together as a couple, give or take their on-again-off-again periods. That's why it was so surprising when, in April 2016, Fox debuted a sizable baby bump at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, with E! News reporting that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2015) actress was in her second trimester at the time.

A source told the site of the surprising news, "This pregnancy was not planned, but when they found out they were extremely happy ... Megan and Brian love being parents. They are working really hard to be together and one unit — not only for their children, but also for each other. They are looking forward for the arrival of their new baby."

The couple put their split on hold seemingly indefinitely and as of press time are still together.
