Babies on the way

Next year will bring a nursery full of new celebrity offspring from

Jessica Simpson, Kristen Bell, Holly Madison, Camila Alves, Jenna Bush Hager and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. But the most famous child arriving in 2013 will be the possible future king or queen of England, born to the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William.

Do they make scepter-shaped rattles?

A slew of I do’s

Rumors have it that local funny guy

Jason Sudeikis and gal pal Olivia Wilde

are planning to tie the knot in Lawrence sometime in 2013. But there are two more high-profile celebrity ceremonies to watch for next year, if only to see who makes it to the altar first.

Jennifer Aniston, ex-wife of Brad Pitt, is engaged to Justin Theroux

and reportedly planning a low-key affair with a handful of guests.

But sorry, Jen. We’re more keen to see the photos from Brad and

Angelina Jolie

’s wedding. Which of the six kids will get to carry the ring? Here’s hoping they wed close by in Brad’s hometown of Springfield, Mo. We promise not to stalk them.

Small screen stuff

There will never be another “Sex and the City.” Carrie Bradshaw and company — Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte — live on in reruns only. But a new generation will get a taste of “Sex” when

“The Carrie Diaries” debuts on Jan. 14 on The CW. AnnaSophia Robb

will play Carrie as a teenager in the ’80s, before she was a sex columnist. Hmm, maybe we’ll stick with the reruns.

The prospect of seeing

Kevin Bacon

on TV every week excites us more. On “The Following,” debuting Jan. 21 on Fox, he plays an FBI agent who comes out of retirement to investigate a copycat serial killer. Maybe he’ll dance?

Breakups and makeups

Don’t hate us, but we predict that these three relationships will be history before Valentine’s Day:

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (yeah, we know they already broke up, but they just spent time together over the holidays), John Mayer and Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift and Harry Styles from One Direction. And, we predict that Taylor will date at least six more guys in 2013. Sad beautiful tragic.
