There are a handful of interfaith couples in Hollywood who are all sporting baby bumps right now. Here’s who we’re watching this spring/summer.

It will be a second girl for Napoleon Dynamite actress and food blogger Haylie Duff. She and her Jewish fiancé, clothing entrepreneur, Matt Rosenberg have a 3-year-old daughter, Ryan, who is “so excited to be a big sister,” she said.

Josh Charles and his wife, actress Sophie Flack, are expecting their second child. The Good Wife and The Menendez Murders actor, who identifies with his father’s Jewish faith, and Flack, whose mother is Jewish, have a 3-year-old son, Rocco.

Already parents of children from previous relationships, Rachel Weisz (Disobedience) and James Bond star Daniel Craig are expecting their first child together. The Jewish actress, who has an 11-year-old son, is in an interfaith marriage with Craig, who has a 25-year-old daughter. They met when they co-starred in the movie Dream House and married in 2011.

Kate Hudson, the mother of two sons, Ryder and Bingham, is expecting again and this time it’s a girl! The daughter of Jewish actress Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson who is not Jewish, has said she’s looking forward to “balancing the masculine and feminine in the house” when she brings the baby home. The father is her boyfriend of over a year, Danny Fujikawa, who is not Jewish. Hudson revealed one downside to the pregnancy in a recent interview: “They say girls make you sicker, and for me that has been the truth.”

British actress Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and her husband Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire, Homeland) are about to become parents for the first time. Hall, who is not Jewish, and Spector, who is Jewish on his father’s side, met while they were in the play Machina! on Broadway and married in 2015.

We’ll be looking for the cute baby snaps soon. Mazel tov!
