Former wrestler and Dancing with the Stars stunner Stacy Keibler is thrilled to share she has a bun in the oven! That’s right, George Clooney’s ex is going to be a mama, but not with George. The Supermarket Superstar host married tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre on the beach in Punta Mita, Mexico, on March 8 after being friends for five years. Then, on the same day news broke about Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher being pregnant, Stacy and Jared revealed that they’re expecting their first child together too!
Stacy shared her baby news on Instagram first by saying, “Look what we’ve got cooking! A Bun’dle of love!” The note was accompanied by a photo of an actual bun baking in the oven. So cute! Stacy then told People, “We’re an elated family-to-be! Both Jared and I didn’t think that we were ever going to get married or have kids… When you meet the right person, everything changes.”
And Stacy couldn’t be more excited to be a mom. “I’m so ready for it. I feel for the first time like I’m really fulfilled and at peace.” Aww! Stacy is due this summer, so we can expect a lot of chic maternity maxi dresses in her future.

Deciding how you’ll make your birth announcement is a huge decision—one, which many women start planning as soon as they know they’re pregnant. Or at least once they know whether they’re having a boy or girl!
Will you send a sweet Tweet? Add the news to your Facebook feed? Share a video with the ones you love via Vine? Post footage of the actual birth on YouTube for all the world to see? Go the more traditional birth announcement route? Or all of the above?
As the Duchess of Cambridge, those decisions are already made for the very pregnantKate Middleton. Her baby’s birth announcement will be much like an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine, where one thing is passed off and triggers another chain reaction (Check out the awesome OK GO video below as a fun example).
According to the British newspaper, The Telegraph, the moment the Prince or Princess of Cambridge is born, an aide will run out of the hospital with a piece of precious paper in hand —a signed bulletin on foolscap-sized paper carrying the Buckingham Palace letterhead, to be exact—with all of the usual details, such as baby’s sex, weight and time of birth (the name will most likely be announced later, with a photo to follow). Much like in a relay race, the piece of paper will then be handed off to a waiting driver to be taken to Buckingham Palace.
Once the Queen hears about the birth (and she will not be woken up to be told about the birth, if it should take place in the middle of the night—a Queen needs her beauty sleep!), and all of the other important family members on both sides know, then and only then will the notice be placed on an easel outside of the Palace for revelers, TV cameras and every last person on the planet to gawk at.
After the adoring public has had a significant amount of time to see the official notice, the news will be put on the Palace’s official Twitter feed. Being a Royal could be seen as having your freedom taken away from you, as you can’t make even the smallest decision such as a birth announcement yourself, but it could also be seen as a stress-free way to live. I sort of envy the fact Kate won’t have to sit up at night pondering the important question of: Do I include the bare bottom shot in the birth announcement or will my son forever hate me if I do?
