It’s True: Kim and Kanye Are Having a Boy!

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Kim Kardashian is a mama who clearly wants to control her own message—the pregnant reality TV star shot down recent rumors that she and hubby Kanye West are expecting a baby boy by tweeting out to her followers, “Nothing is confirmed unless you hear it from me!”

Well, now we’re hearing it from her! On Father’s Day, Kardashian posted a sweet daddy-daughter pic of Kanye and 2-year-old North on Instagram with the caption, “Precious moments like this when were traveling on tour with you are what I live for. You’re such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!”

Talk about sneaking in the news!

We already knew that Kim, who is due sometime in December and apparently is not going to name the new baby South, was having bad morning sickness, and reportedly hired a nutritionist. But she stayed mum up until now on the boy-or-girl news. Now that the world knows,a whole new guessing game of baby boy names can begin. Too bad Reign is already taken!

Kim Kardashian West Is Pregnant Again!

Monday, June 1st, 2015

So much for surrogacy…Kim Kardashian West is pregnant!

While recent updates on the reality TV star’s struggle to give North West a sibling revealed IVF issues and the possibility of using a surrogate, the latest news says that’s not the case. On last night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim was shown telling sister Khloe, “I just got the blood test back, and I am pregnant!” E! News even sent a “congrats!” tweet.

Kim also appears on the cover of the July issue of Glamour magazine, and confirmed to the magazine two weeks after her interview, as the issue was going to press, that she and husband Kanye West are indeed expecting again, saying “We are so beyond excited.”

Despite her fertility issues, Kim never seemed to give up her dream of becoming pregnant again, telling Matt Lauer in a Today show interview, “I still have hope, so I’m just going to keep on trying.”

She was equally honest and open in her interview with Glamour, telling the magazine,

“I didn’t know that I was going to be so open with [my fertility challenges]. But meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, Why not share my story? It’s been really emotional. One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby—I could only have one more. One was like, “You should get a surrogate.” The other one was like, “Oh, no, you’ll be fine.” Then I called my doctor, and he’s like, “You know what? I believe—we’ll get through it.”There are definitely times when I walked out [of the doctor's office] hysterically crying,and other times when I was like, “OK, everything’s looking good—it’s going to be this month!” The waiting and waiting has been a roller coaster.”

No word yet on the due date, gender, or any other details—but we’re sure more information will be revealed (or teased) in future episodes of KUWTK. Congrats to the couple!

Jaime King Is Pregnant Again!

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

Jaime KingJaime King is expecting her second child with director-husband Kyle Newman. The “Hart of Dixie” actress shared a pregnancy announcement on Instagram. An oh-so-cute 16-month-old James Knight is seen with a “I’m gonna be a big brother!” sign.

The clever Insta caption read, “So excited to announce THE SEQUEL Coming later this year!! … #BabyTown2 – Created by @kyle_newman and @jaime_king. Also starring #JamesKnight”

King is one tough mama who’s been open about her struggles with infertility, multiple IVF treatments, and miscarriage. Speaking to People, King once shared, “If I’m open about it, hopefully it won’t be so taboo to talk about it.”

Despite her difficulties, King ended up conceiving naturally and giving birth to James Knight in 2013.

We’re excited for King’s latest baby blessing, and can’t wait to find out if she’ll have another awesome themed baby shower and which celeb godparents she’ll pick (maybe Taylor Swift?!).

See how other celebs shared their pregnancy announcements!

Which “Bachelor” Star’s Stepmom Is ALSO Her Surrogate?

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

Shayne Lamas surrogate

Longtime fans of The Bachelor will remember Shayne Lamas; now 29 years old, she won season 12 of the ABC show. She’s also a mom of a 3-year-old daughter with husband Nik Richie.

And now, she’s got big pregnancy news. Having announced in the fall that she was expecting another child by way of a surrogate, she has now gone public with this fact: the surrogate is also her stepmom!

In the latest issue of Closer Weekly, she shared that Shawna Craig is “not just my stepmother. She’s like a soul sister. She’s an angel that blessed my whole family, including my father.”

Shawna, who is only a touch younger than her stepdaughter, is the fifth wife for Falcon Crest star Lorenzo Lamas, Shayne’s dad. Shawna told the mag that she never wanted a baby of her own.

Last February, Shayne lost a baby boy when her uterus ruptured during pregnancy, and she was forced to have an emergency hysterectomy. But now she is having another boy.

“It is weird. Somebody else carrying your baby is weird,” Shayne revealed. “But I lost my  son, and now Shawna is carrying [another] son. I have just been given the biggest blessing in the whole world, and I will always be grateful.”

Last week—exactly a year following her loss—Shayne posted an Instagram photo of her baby wearing angel wings, along with the caption, “I might not carry you in my arms, but I will always carry you in my heart.”

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:
