Naya Rivera Is Pregnant!

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Naya RiveraNaya Rivera and actor-hubby Ryan Dorsey are expecting their first child! The Glee actress, 28, took to social media on Tuesday night to share the couple’s exciting news. To surprise fans and followers, she shared a simple-yet-clever graphic of a bun in the oven via instagram.

“We’re having a baby! Ryan and I feel so blessed and can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family,” Rivera also wrote on her website—along with a throwback photo of both her and her husband when they were kids.

Rivera and Dorsey, who met nearly five years ago, began dating in 2014 and tied the knot seven months ago at a secret ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

As Rivera put it on Twitter, “First comes love… then comes marriage… then comes…”

Congrats to the soon-to-be parents!

Which “Game of Thrones” Actress Is Expecting (Again)?!

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Lena HeadeyLena Headey, who plays the deliciously evil Cersei Lannister on the popular HBO show, is expecting her second child, confirms People.

This is the second child for Headey, who also has a 4-year-old son, Wylie, with an ex-husband. No other news has been released, such as the baby’s gender or father, but Headey requested some privacy along with her pregnancy announcement.

In an interview with The Telegraph last year, the British actress shared her desire to be a mom to more than one child. “My dream is to have more kids,” she said. “I love being a mum and that’s been the hardest thing for me, trying to put to bed my desire to have more children.”

There’s no doubt Headey’s most likely over-the-moon (or is that over Westeros?) about her pregnancy. As she once tweeted:

Which Celeb Mom-to-Be Is More Stylish Than Kate Middleton?!

Monday, January 26th, 2015

Keira Knightley pregnancy fashionIs there any more stylish pregnant lady in the world than Kate Middleton? According to a recent poll, yes, there is.

The new poll from U.K. baby brand My1styears.com crowned Keira Knightley as the most stylish celebrity mum-to-be. The star, who announced her pregnancy with her first child just last month, took 26 percent of the total votes cast, outpacing the Duchess of Cambridge, who came in a close second with 20 percent.

Last night at the SAG Awards, Keira wore a flowing purple lace gown that stunned red carpet bump watchers—and seemed somehow appropriately comfortable, true to her fashion aesthetic, and totally showstopping all at once. And for the Golden Globes, she chose a riskier Chanel frock with lace at the neckline and three-tiered hem, and a print of butterflies and bugs. Fearless and fun, plus romantic and chic—an inspired choice, if you ask me.

I’ll admit that both gowns won me over, as has Keira’s other recent maternity fashion. But is it better than Kate’s?

Absolutely no way. To my eye, Kate wins the maternity fashion game hands down, from her perfectly pulled-together coats to her always elegant dresses, to her even-while-pregnant heels and fascinators. Kate’s maternity fashion is perfection, and you just can’t get better than that.

What do you think?

Shakira’s Charity Baby Shower—You’re Invited!

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Shakira baby showerOne celeb mama is inviting every last one of us to be a part of her baby shower. But she doesn’t feel a bit bashful about the etiquette implications of asking so many people to buy gifts, nor about having a shower for a second baby.
That’s because we’re not talking about ordinary cupcakes and games—but something way, way more important.

Shakira, who is now expecting her second son with soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique, is inviting everyone to share in the couple’s good news by buying a gift from her registry for impoverished moms and kids all around the world through her World Baby Shower project with Unicef.

Through the campaign, anyone can go online to buy a measles vaccine for $12, or a basic family water kit for $181.30, or another essential in a range of prices from Shakira’s registry. (The couple did a version of the awesome World Baby Shower concept back in 2012, too, when they were getting ready to welcome their first son.)

The star shared details of the latest shower on her Facebook page—where she has close to 107 million fans, so imagine the impact all those folks can make, thanks to her inspiration.

“We wanted to give something to other parents and babies around the world, who live in conditions of extreme poverty and vulnerability but whose lives can be improved greatly by small contributions from others,” she wrote in the post.

And she encouraged other expecting moms of means to get on board with a similar shower approach. “Let’s make the arrival of our new babies be a blessing to us, our families, and to many others as well,” she wrote. “Thanks for your support—we can’t wait to hear about your baby showers and to celebrate together.”

Now there’s a celebrity who knows that good fortune is worth sharing—especially when it comes to the community of moms and babies all around the globe. Hello, role-model mama!
