Before baby makes his or her arrival, it’s time for that super-special babymoon. (Right, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend?) Considered the last vacation just-for-two — at least for a while, that is — this upward trend has been gaining momentum in part, thanks to celebs who splash their babymoon experiences all over social media. While some opt for a posh beach getaway, others head to far-flung places abroad before they pack up their passport for a few months. Get inspired by these dreamy babymoons that some of your fave celebs took before their families grew:
1. Vanessa Lachey
When Vanessa Lachey was expecting her first child, baby boy Camden, she headed to St. Lucia with hubby Nick Lachey. Though they’ve welcomed another addition to their family since then — a girl, Brooklyn — who could forget the gorgeous sunset silhouette photo she shared? The two stayed in the uber-romantic Jade Mountain Resort in June of 2012.
2. Hilary Duff
Though they’ve since split, Hilary Duff and her then-hubby Mike Comrie soaked up the Hawaiian sun at the Four Seasons Resort Hawaii at Hualalai, just a few months before her baby boy Luca made his big arrival. Sources said they enjoyed a romantic dinner at the resort’s Beach Tree Restaurant.
3. Holly Madison
What better way to prepare for your first child’s arrival than to use your babymoon as an excuse to return to your childhood? Holly Madison went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge with her then-boyfriend (and now hubby), Pasquale Rotella. It wasn’t all childlike wonder though, Madison dished on the view from their suite on her website: “One of the coolest things about the Lodge is you can see animals roaming from your balcony. My favorite were the giraffes!” After giving birth to their first-born, Rainbow Aurora, the pair married at Disneyland and are now expecting their second babe. Will their second babymoon be Disney-themed as all of their big celebrations seem to be?
4. Giuliana Rancic
Before they welcomed their son Edward via gestational surrogate, E! News host Giuliana Rancic and her hubby Bill babymooned in Vail, Colorado at the Ritz-Carlton Residences. Throughout the trip, the social media-savvy duo posted snaps from their adventures including fly fishing and hiking.
5. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson’s babymoon wasn’t just with her then-fiancé Matt Bellamy, but the expecting duo brought along her seven-year-old son, Ryder. They headed to a seaside villa at the Four Seasons in Punta Mita, Mexico. The pair were celebrating the upcoming addition to their fam, a son, Bingham who arrived in July of 2011.
6. Uma Thurman
While expecting her third child, Luna, Uma invited along all the special people in her life: her then-fiance and baby daddy, Arpad Busson and her two children from her previous marriage, Maya and Levon. Instead of opting for a fancy villa or a five-star resort, the couple celebrated their baby-to-be sailing around St. Barts. Sign us up, please!

While waiting for her daughter, Marlowe to arrive, Miller and her then-boyfriend, Tom Sturridge headed to Portofino, Italy. The twosome were caught tasting gelato and sneaking in smooches while strolling along the Italian streets. No word on where the couple stayed while abroad.
8. Marisa Miller
It was a Hawaiian getaway for the Sports Illustrated model and husband Griffin Guess. During her second trimester, the former Victoria’s Secret star headed to the Four Seasons Resort Maui while awaiting the arrival of their first babe, Gavin. Since then, the couple has welcomed another son to their growing fam, Grayson, in 2015.
9. Camila McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey and his model wife Camila, headed to Ibiza, Spain just two months after their June 2012 wedding, to celebrate their third pregnancy. The couple was spotted swimming and lounging on the beach and even spent some time together on a private yacht.
10. Kristin Cavallari
Football star Jay Cutler and mama-to-be Kristin Cavallari headed to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico before they welcomed their first child, Camden. Instead of a purely romantic getaway, the pair invited friends along to celebrate their growing family. Flash forward a few years later and Cavallari headed back to the beach again for another babymoon — but this time they brought their 18-month son, too. Seems like this duo likes to have company on their babymoons!
