Which ‘Girls’ Actor Is About to Become a Dad?

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Just when you think you’ve seen every iteration of the Ice Bucket Challenge there is — with toilet water, on horseback, with breast milk — Chris O’Dowd comes along and sets a new standard, reports E! Online.

For most of the 47-second video, the charming “Girls” actor sticks to the script. He introduces himself, says which charities he’s donating to, dumps a huge bucket of icy water on his head, and even yelps out some mild curses (natch). But then he nominates his unborn child!

“I’d like to nominate Baby O’Porter,” he says, and then turns the camera to his pregnant wife, Dawn O’Porter. The mom-to-be pours a glass of ice water over her obvious bump and lets out a little shriek. “So brave!” O’Dowd says in the final moments, a huge grin on his face. I’m calling it now — best baby announcement of the summer.

This will be the couple’s first child together; they were married in 2012.

Which Celeb Moms Are Expecting Again?!

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Amanda PeetWritten by Bonnie Gibbs Vengrow

Forget carefully worded statements from PR flacks — two celeb moms-to-be just announced they’re expecting in a most public (and kind of glamorous) way.

In true Hollywood fashion, actress Amanda Peet debuted her bump on the red carpet at last night’s Emmys. Dressed in a flowy Giambattista Valli gown, the 42-year-old looked radiant next to husband David Benioff as they confirmed that baby number three is on his/her way, US Weekly reports. The couple are already parents to daughters Frances Pen, 7, and Molly June, 4. Peet said her pregnancy is going well so far, though she admitted that she planned on getting comfy as soon as her red carpet duties were done. “I’ll be taking these heels off in a minute,” she said with a laugh.

Another mom-to-be took to the airwaves to share the news about her pregnancy. Today Show anchor and correspondent Jenna Wolfe let a photo of her ultrasound do the talking during a baby-themed segment on Friday, according to Today.com. After it flashed on the screen, she announced that she and partner Stephanie Gosk, an NBC News foreign correspondent, were expecting a daughter in February. This will be the second child for the couple; they’re already parents to daughter Harper, who turned 1 on Thursday. (Side note: First Savannah Guthrie, then Carson Daly, and now Jenna Wolfe — what’s in the water at 30 Rock?)

Peet and Wolfe are in good company — celeb moms Kourtney Kardashian, Ali Larter, Milla Jovovich are also expanding their broods later this year.

Is Hayden Panettiere Pregnant?!

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Hayden Panettiere Wladimir Klitschko Pregnant BabyIs she or isn’t she: That’s the question that has the Hollywood gossip ring buzzing.

The latest subject of the celebrity pregnancy rumor mill is Hayden Panettiere, as Us Weekly reports that the Nashville star is expecting. “Hayden is totally pregnant!” the magazine quotes an “insider” as saying.

This would be Baby No. 1 for the actress and her fiancé, boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

Though there has been no official word from the couple’s camp, back in May 2013, Panettiere revealed to Glamour magazine that she loved the idea of becoming a mom.

“I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother,” she said. “Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, ‘Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.”

Panettiere, 24, and Klitschko, 38, became engaged in March 2013 after an on-and-off relationship since 2009. Whether or not she is pregnant, here’s wishing nothing but happiness to the couple! (Oh, and an adorable baby name, if the rumors turn out to be true.)
