Yep, Scarlett Johansson is Pregnant!

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

The queen of curves is about to get even curvier! It seems the Her star—who announced she was engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac just six months ago—is pulling a Christina Aguilera. That’s right, she is announcing she’s pregnant shortly after her big engagement news (and even bigger engagement ring) were revealed! But unlike Christina, this will be ScarJo’s first child.

The 29-year-old, who was married for nearly three years to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds (who has since found love again with his second wife, former Gossip Girls’ starlet Blake Lively), told People magazine back in January that she was in no hurry to say “I do.” “Being engaged is an exciting time to enjoy and to really savor,” she told the magazine. That same month, she told Good Morning America that she wasn’t doing any wedding planning at the moment—instead merely enjoying being engaged.

No news yet on whether the pregnancy was a surprise, but something Scarlett told the UK’s Daily Mail in December makes me doubt that. “They say it’s never the right time [to start a family] and I am sure that’s true, but I think you have to plan it like anything else,” she said.

So now the big question is: Is she doing baby planning instead? No doubt the fashion maven will be gifted with tons of free designer duds (see Nori West’s wardrobe as an example), and whether a boy or girl the baby will be gorgeous (like mom and dad). Only time will tell if the baby will have a catchy nickname like mama, but my vote is yes!

Boy or Girl for Kelly Clarkson? Big Gender Reveal!

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!

Once Upon a Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin is Pregnant!

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

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 Got Her Wish: She’s Pregnant!

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

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!

Pregnancy Scandal? Kerry Washington is Having a Baby!

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

As if Scandal beauty Kerry Washington wasn’t glowing enough already, now she really will be—she’s pregnant with her first child! Us Weekly reports that it can exclusively confirm the actress is four months pregnant (so she’s in her second trimester!) with San Francisco 49ers football star, and new hubby, Nnamdi Asomugha. The two married June 24 in a hush-hush ceremony in Hailey, Idaho, so it’s no surprise the stealthy actress, who plays the master of cover-ups and spins on her hit ABC show, has also been able to keep her pregnancy top secret.

The super-stylish mom-to-be has been concealing her baby bump under loose-fitting designer dresses for months. Now, I can’t wait to see how she dresses her growing bump. She’s going to look so cute in maternity wear! If anyone can pull off mommy chic, it’s Kerry!

Then there’s the question of how they’ll handle her real-life pregnancy on Scandal. Will she be holding lots of important file boxes in front of her belly? Be sitting behind a desk for tons of scenes? Or will she have an unplanned pregnancy with the President of the United States? So many questions!
