The latest celebrity baby trend seems to be announcing your engagement, then your pregnancy, and Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have done just that! Following in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera and Scarlett Johansson, Mila and Ashton are expecting their first child, nearly a month after confirming their engagement. Mila has even been spotted taking a prenatal yoga class recently in Hollywood, according to E!.
“Ashton and Mila feel like they won the baby lottery,” a friend of the couple told OK magazine, which reports that Mila is four months along in her pregnancy. “It was a total shock for both of them, but they feel up for the challenge,” the friend said. “It didn’t seem like it was possible for them to fall any deeper in love, but the prospect of raising an insta-family together has solidified their commitment to each other.”
The longtime friends—who are only expecting one baby, not twins which has previously been rumored—first met on the set of That ‘70s Show in 1998 and went public with their relationship in 2012 after Ashton split from first wife Demi Moore. This will be the first child for both, though Ashton became very close to his ex-wife’s three daughters, so he has some dad experience—just not with babies!
Ashton described (step) fatherhood to USA Today in 2011: “It’s a completely learn-on-the-job thing,” he said. “Your best teachers are your parents anyway. You take the ‘best of’ from your parents and you try to eliminate the ‘worst of’ from your parents.”
Congrats to Mila and Ashton! You’ll get the hang of parenthood by feeling your way through, just like the rest of us!
And in more baby news, Alyssa Milano announced on her website that she is expecting her second child—a little brother or sister for son Milo, 2 ½ . She told People in September: “I want to have another child, just because I want Milo to have a sibling and have someone to grow with. My brother and I are so close, and I can’t imagine not giving my son that kind of relationship.”
We’ll have to wait to see if two is enough for Alyssa, or if little Milo will be getting more siblings soon.

Must Read, Who Is Pregnant
Tuesday, January 21st, 2014
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?

Who Is Pregnant
Saturday, November 30th, 2013
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.

It looks like actress Ginnifer Goodwin is getting her fairytale ending after all! First the Once Upon a Time star, who plays Snow White, found love on set with her on-and-off-screen Prince Charming, Josh Dallas. Then they became engaged last month, and now the adorable couple confirms a baby is on the way!
Fashion-forward Ginnifer had been wearing loose-fitting clothes and bulky jackets for weeks, sparking baby rumors. But Ginnifer has had babies on the brain for quite a while! She told InStyle UK back in 2010—when she was engaged to actor Joey Kern—that she has always wanted a big family. “I want three or five children, but I need a bigger house or a smaller closet!” she joked. So it sounds like this baby is not going to be alone for long!
Let the bump watch begin! I can’t wait to see what amazing designers that belly is going to be donning!
PS Could there be something in the water at ABC that’s getting everyone pregnant? First, Kerry Washington from Scandal’s pregnancy was announced, then Daphne Oz from The Chew, and now Ginnifer! Who will be next? My bet is on Hayden Panettiere from Nashville!

Kelly Clarkson has finally confirmed what we’ve all been waiting for via Twitter: “I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever.” A big congrats to my all-time favorite American Idol!
Believe it or not: Kelly says she never wanted to be a mom. But all that changed when she met the love of her life, Brandon Blackstock (who has two kids from a previous relationship). While everyone presumed Kelly’s recent slim down was to look good in her wedding pictures, Kelly told Taste of Country it was actually baby-making prep. “It’s all about making my body the most healthy inside out. And I’m reading all these books,” she said.
Ever since she and Brandon got married a month ago in Tennessee, having a baby is pretty much all the singer has talked about! “I want babies!” the newlywed declared in a radio interview on Oct. 30. ”Everybody keeps saying, ‘What do you want for Christmas?’ And I’m like, ‘I want to be pregnant.’”
She continued the baby talk on Jay Leno on Nov. 11. Though Jay pressed her on whether she was pregnant, Kelly wasn’t ready to make her big announcement—only telling the talk show host, “[We want a baby] like now! Practice makes perfect! We’re trying, trying, trying. I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five.”
I’m so happy for Kelly, and I love that she told her devoted fans first! She is the most down-to-earth celebrity, and is going to be the cutest pregnant woman ever. You know she’s going to have one rockin’ baby shower too! I can’t wait for more details!
TELL US: How long after getting into a relationship did you wait to have kids?
