You don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy these adorable, funny and charming pregnancy movies. There is something so touching about watching couples discover the complexities of pregnancy, birth and parenthood. Out of all the movies I have seen about pregnancy, these are my favorites!
#5. Nine Months
Starring Hugh Grant and Julianne Moore, Nine months was released in 1995. At the time it was one of the only pregnancy movies available. It’s funny, witty and charming.
Released in 2007, Juno stars Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman. What sets Juno apart from other teen pregnancy dramas is how Juno the character goes through all of her options and chooses what works best for her and for the baby. It has a good mixture of laughter and tears and made Ellen Page the famous actress she is today.
#3. Knocked Up
Hilarious! I love Knocked Up. Written and Directed by Judd Apatow, Knocked Up was released in 2007 and stars Katherine Heigl, Seth Rogan, Paul Judd and Leslie Mann (Judd’s wife!) Not only do we get to see the couple before pregnancy, but the movie is filled with well-written one-liners and the two little girls in the movie happen to be Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann’s daughters.
#2. Baby Mama
Released in 2008, Baby Mama is about a single woman who has a successful career and wants a baby to complete her life. After several attempts to get pregnant via artificial insemination, she seeks out a surrogate. Starring Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Greg Kinnear, Dax Shepard and Sigourney Weaver, Baby Mama brings us a romantic comedy filled with funny writing and a happily ever after ending.
#1. Father of the Bride 2
My number one pregnancy movie is Father of the Bride 2. The second pregnancy move released in 2005, this hilarious comedy is about not one, but two pregnancies! We follow George Banks (Steve Martin) as both his newly married daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and wife Nina (Diane Keaton) find out they’re expecting! We see the pregnancies from beginning to end, as well as the ending climax where both women go into labor at the same time. I can’t see any reason why this won’t always be my favorite pregnancy movie ever.
