They may not be Brangelina, but you can’t deny that having a baby in Hollywood was a great career move for these celebrity C-listers!

We all love ’em, but in all truth, some of these stars were hanging out behind the scenes while the paparazzi were stalking Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. But suddenly, thanks to those burgeoning bumps and baby carriages, out-of-the-limelight celebs like Selma Blair, Alyssa Milano, Alicia Silverstone, James Van Der Beek, Tia Mowry and Danica McKellar are all thrust back into stardom!

Clueless star Alicia Silverstone, 34, was nowhere to be found before the news of her pregnancy broke. Then the paparazzi were scoping her out outside prenatal yoga classes or on lunch dates with friends. And now that she’s giving birth to her first child with Christopher Jarecki, a baby boy named Bear, we can’t wait to hear all about her life as a new mom!

And the same thing goes for Alyssa Milano, 38, who wasn’t seen much since her days on WB’s hit show Charmed. But now, even she can’t take the pressure of the paparazzi wanting to shoot her blooming belly every five minutes!

In a little note to the paparazzo who follows her to yoga class every day, Alyssa writes: “Unfortunately for you, as a result of your stalking, you will continue to get the same boring shot of me leaving yoga class because other than growing a child and preparing blissfully for his arrival, I don’t have much going on at the moment. But just so you know, I AM going to the Horrible Bosses premiere on the 30th, where I will walk the red carpet. Feel free to show up there.” WOW!

But how could we forget about our favorite Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek, who catapulted into the spotlight after his wife Kimberly Brook gave birth to their daughter Olivia, 9 months. He’s the go to new dad for parenting tips and was even featured in Ke$ha‘s music video for ‘Blow!’

Who’s your favorite ‘back-in-the-spotlight’ star parent/parent-to-be?
