Jewel, Natalie, Kate and More: It's a Celebrity Baby Boom! (What's Going on Here?)

It’s not just your imagination: Tons of celebs have announced their pregnancies in the last few days and weeks -- Kate Hudson is the most recent addition to the list, which also includes Natalie Portman, Jewel, Marion Cotillard, Jane Krakowski and Rachel Zoe. This begs the question: Is there one time of year that's more popular than others for births? Yup -- summer.

In 2008 (the most recent year for which birth statistics are available), July had the most U.S. births, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Other popular months? August and September. Experts guess that since colder weather keeps couples indoors, they spend more time getting, um, 'intimate' with one another. Some moms, especially teachers, plan summer births since they already have time off. November was the least common month to have a baby.

Of course, the weather doesn't exactly explain why there seems to be a celeb baby boom going on -- most of them live in warm-all-year-long Los Angeles -- and they certainly aren't teaching school. Got any theories?

What month did you give birth -- if you planned it out, why did you pick it? Chime in below!
