Christina Ricci is pregnant with her first child—and just under her deadline! You read that right. Back in 2008, the actress was quoted by HollyScoop.com as saying, “I want to get married and have kids, maybe not next year, but before I’m 35.” Well, she did it. Christina is 34!
Christina and hubby James Heerdegen—a camera technician she met on the set of her short-lived 2011 TV show, Pan Am—had been keeping their baby-on-the-way status on the DL. But as they say, pictures speak a thousand words, and photos surfaced of Christina walking through LAX with a sizable bump (accentuated by wearing a belt just below her chest, a tell-tale sign of maternity wear!).
Shop for cute maternity clothes!
While Christina has yet to comment about her pregnancy, her publicist confirmed Christina is indeed pregnant. The mom-to-be has said she thinks she’ll be a “good mother, and entertaining.” Congrats to Christina and James! I can’t wait to hear what they name their baby. Personally, I’d love them to choose the name Wednesday (as in Christina’s character in the Addams Family)—it’s a unisex baby name, so it’ll work no matter whether they’re having a boy or girl.

It’s only been two months since singer Kelly Clarkson announced she and hubby Brandon Blackstock were pregnant. Soon after she said she had a “gut feeling” she was having a girl, telling Parade: “I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’” she joked.
Well, that chick knew it! Or manifested it! Or is just a really good guesser (well, it was a 50-50 chance she’d be right—there are only two options), because she is in fact having a daughter!
“We just found out we’re having a girl officially! I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!” she announced on Twitter Monday.
She already told Ellen DeGeneres that she and Brandon have chosen a unisex baby name that they were planning to use whether they were having a boy or girl. But no one’s getting that name out of her.
“We’re not saying because I don’t want someone to steal my baby’s name,” said Kelly. “We named our kid before we were even pregnant!”
PS Musical geniuses Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are expecting their third boy later this year. Maybe there’s a duet in these two kids’ futures!
TELL US: Did you have baby names picked out even before you got pregnant? If you’ve already had the baby, what did you name him or her?

It’s official: Skyler Berman has a baby brother! Stylist to the stars and designer extraordinaire Rachel Zoe and hubby Rodger are now the proud parents of two adorable boys. Rachel announced the birth of Kaius Jagger Berman, aka Kai, on her Twitter feed, saying: “So excited to welcome our baby boy into the world…he’s 7 lbs 12 oz., beautiful, healthy and we couldn’t be happier!”
I don’t know about you, but I love the names they’ve picked out for both of their sons. They’re different enough to be special, but not so out there that they’re just cra-cra. And for those paying attention, it’s no surprise the major music fans went with Jagger (as in the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger) as Kai’s middle name. Skyler’s middle name is Morrison after Doors’ singer Jim Morrison!
So far, the fashionista has been successful juggling styling, designing, running her fashion empire and being a devoted wife and mom—while pregnant. Now she baby Kai is here, she has one more thing (well, person) to throw into the mix. Rachel confessed during her pregnancy she wasn’t sure how little Skyler would take to sharing his number one girl with another baby, but now Rachel’s telling fans there is no mama drama to worry about. “Rodger, Skyler and I are madly in love and will be happily hibernating for the next couple of weeks.”
Mazel tov to Rachel and her boys!

Having trouble coming up with the perfect name for your little prince or princess? It’s a lot of pressure, right? You want a name you’ll love forever, that won’t embarrass your kid or get him or her teased, but something that’s different enough that there aren’t 10 of them in his or her class.
Well, the former Hills star turned shoe designer and hubby Jay Cutler did pretty well naming their first child without the help of a baby name book—Camden Jack Cutler (Camden was #156 on the national list of the most popular boys’ names in 2012). Now that she’s pregnant with her second, Kristin is sharing her tips on how to find the best fit for your child’s name:
Keep an open mind. You can find inspiration anywhere! Kristin and Jay don’t know whether their second baby will be a boy or a girl yet, so they’ve picked out names for each. “I saw the boy name in a magazine and I just liked it,” she shares. She found the girl name in the unlikeliest of places: a store clerk’s dog!
Sound it out. Don’t just pick names you like. Make sure the first and middle names go well with the baby’s last name. “We liked the way Camden Cutler sounded,” she said, “and we liked calling him Cam for short.”
Personalize it. They loved the name Camden the moment they heard it. But to make it have a family tie, they made Camden’s middle name Jack, “which is Jay’s dad’s name, so it has meaning,” Kristin explains.
Have a thick skin. You can’t make everyone happy! That’s why some people choose to keep their baby names a secret till the baby’s born, so they don’t have to hear people weigh in on whether they like the names or not. Kristin and Jay have told close friends and family their baby name contenders and have gotten “mixed reviews—and we don’t care!” she said with a laugh.

If Josh Duhamel had it his way, he’d want wife Fergie to be pregnant all of the time! “I’m going to miss seeing her walking around the house pregnant,” he told Access Hollywood. “It’s been a really, really great experience and hopefully she’ll wanna do it again soon.”
Fergie is reportedly due any day now with a boy, which Josh seemed to spill on the fly on an episode of LIVE with Kelly and Michael, but he revealed to me it wasn’t as spontaneous as it looked. “I had to get full permission from my wife first!” he explains. The two, who are in major nesting mode, have the nursery, baby gear and clothes all ready for their little man—mostly thanks to the three baby showers Fergie has had.
While they’re saving their baby’s name as a secret (they’re not even telling their parents, because they don’t want anyone else’s opinion!), Josh will say that it’s a traditional name rather than a spoofable one, like North West or Apple Martin.
Now, with baby on the way, Josh is more focused than ever on making a difference by giving back. I caught up with him as he was announcing the kickoff to the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat Campaign, which auctions off celebrity handprints in colorful Valspar paint to raise money for Habitat for Humanity’s Disaster Response program that’s currently serving areas like New York, Oklahoma and Texas. Here’s what he said during our exclusive (though brief!) Q&A:
Has Fergie been singing to the baby a lot?
Yes! We play him music too. It’s funny to see how active he is [inside her belly]–I think we’re going to have our hands full. He’s going to be an active kid, but that’s good, that’s what we want. They say that the more you communicate from outside while he’s still in the womb, the more advanced he’ll be when he comes out, but who knows if any of that’s true.
What’s making you most nervous about becoming a dad?
Until you’ve gone through it, you don’t know what to expect. You try to be prepared and cover every base, but until you actually have it you don’t know. So I guess it’s fear of the unknown.
What sorts of things are you looking forward to doing most with your son?
I’m just so excited to meet him and hold him, and see what this little guy has been doing in there. I can’t wait to show him off to my family and friends–even just taking him with me to breakfast in the morning. Everything that goes with being a parent is what I’ve always wanted to do. It’s going to be life-changing for sure.
Have you settled on a push present for Fergie yet?
No, I should probably do that, huh? But you know what, going through pregnancy and growing a baby…if there was ever a gift that a woman has earned, it’s a push present!
What Josh wants you to know about his involvement with Valspar and Habitat for Humanity: “After what happened in my hometown in North Dakota in 2011, I can understand a lot better what some of these families are going through that were hit by disaster. Habitat has worked closely with low-income families to help them rebuild their lives–not just their homes, but their lives, and Valspar has donated all the paint for Habitat’s builds. People can get involved with the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat campaign by going on to the Valspar Facebook page and bidding on some of these canvases with the handprints donated by various celebrities, and all that money will go toward Habitat’s Disaster Response Program. Valspar not only donates all the paint for Habitat builds, but they will donate $1000 for every handprint auction contributed.”
TELL US: Do you think Fergie should get pregnant right away? How long do you think you should wait between kids?
