Parenthood is a favorite theme in movies. It makes sense, then, that some of the most memorable film characters are pregnant. But while all of these fictional women are expectant mothers, the circumstances surrounding their pregnancies couldn't be more different. Some of the best pregnant movie characters carefully planned to welcome a child into their lives, while others were surprised by an unexpected pregnancy. And one of these pregnant characters isn't a woman at all – rather, it's the male scientist played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Junior.

What other roles will you find on this list of the best pregnant characters in films? Rosemary Woodhouse, played by Mia Farrow, was thrilled when she first found out that she was pregnant in the 1968 film Rosemary's Baby. But as her belly grows, Rosemary begins to fear that something sinister may be behind her good fortune. Marge Gunderson from Fargo unravels a darkly comic conspiracy in the snowy Midwest, all while anticipating the birth of her child.

Snappy banter and a teen pregnancy made Juno MacGuff, played by Ellen Page, an iconic fictional pregnant woman when Juno was released in 2007. Other great roles that are featured on this top pregnant characters in film list include Kee from Children of Men and Ashley Johnsten from Junebug.
