Jessa Duggar Seewald Is Pregnant… And Due on Her First Wedding Anniversary!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Jessa Duggar pregnantHave you been having Duggar-Pregnancy-Watch withdrawal since Jill gave birth to baby son Israel David? Well, we have some exciting news for you!

Jessa Duggar Seewald is pregnant! She’s expecting her first child with new hubby Ben Seewald—and the baby is due on the couple’s first wedding anniversary, November 1!

The couple confirmed the news, telling People, “We’re so excited!”

Jessa, who is the third daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and a co-star on 19 Kids and Counting, is now entering her second trimester. (That’s a traditional time for a pregnant woman to announce, after many of the first-trimester uncertainties and risks have passed. However, sister Jill and husband Derick Dillard announced their big news even earlier!)

Jessa says that by now she’s “feeling pretty good.” However, that wasn’t always the case. “The morning sickness was different every day,” she told People. “It’s getting better, but I’m still hanging on to the heartburn.” She added that she doesn’t currently have any major food cravings for now.

The latest big announcement suggests there will be just half a year or so in between the new baby and cousin Israel. What a fun—if not very surprising!—bit of news for the ever-growing Duggar family.

Jenna Bush Hager Is Expecting Baby No. 2! See Her Sweet Pregnancy Announcement Video

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Jenna Bush Hager pregnantAs avid travelers, my husband and I worried during my pregnancy about what the birth of our twins could mean for our passport-stamping careers—I won’t lie. But when we met our brand new babes in the hospital last July, I will never forget how we said to each other, “Surely this is the biggest adventure in the whole wide world!”

Well, Jenna Bush Hager knows a thing or two about how that goes.

As the Today Show “adventure correspondent,” she has been embarking on thrilling journeys filmed for TV—like a roller coaster ride in Colorado (during which she squealed the code word “mommy!” so as not to accidentally curse on a family prorgam). The show’s audience members had cast 50,000 votes to pick what crazy thrill Bush Hager would try next. But instead of revealing the winning pick on the show this morning, Bush Hager stood by while the team rolled tape of a pregnancy announcement!

In the home video, the former first daughter’s own daughter Mila blows a kiss to her “baby sissy” in mommy’s belly. Too cute! (Mila is almost exactly two years old: Her birthday is a week away.)

After hearing the news, Matt Lauer joked, “Some people will do anything to get out of a roller coaster ride.”

To that, Bush Hager said, “I know! You know what though? This is the biggest roller coaster ride there is: having kids!”

Exactly, mama. Congrats to the growing fam!

Olivia Wilde is Pregnant with Jason Sudeikis’s Baby!

Monday, October 28th, 2013

In happy Monday news, Olivia Wilde and fiancé Jason Sudeikis are expecting! Woot woot! The star of Rush and former-SNLer are only going to be the coolest. parents. ever! And this baby of theirs is no doubt going to be just as awesome as his or her parents.

Olivia comes from a politically-minded family (her parents Andrew and Leslie Cockburn are seasoned journalists, who’ve reported on national security and foreign affairs), is a total brain and a huge reader (she took her stage name Wilde after poet/playwright Oscar Wilde). Oh, and she just happens to be gorgeous, too. Then there’s Jason, who is high-larious, a good dancer (I still heart—and totally miss—his track suit-loving dancer character on SNL’s What Up With That sketch) and has amazing Midwest values (he’s from Kansas). What a well-rounded kid they’re going to have!

The two—who met on the SNL set back in 2011—have both previously been married, but this will be the first child for both. And it sounds like Olivia should be especially thrilled with the news because she’s always wanted kids. She told the April issue of Marie Claire, “I can’t wait for children! I’m open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party.” Isn’t that sweet! She continued,  “[Jason] is so good with kids. I’ve never before experienced looking at someone and thinking, ‘That’s who I want to raise a child with.’” Aww…can you say adorable?

Olivia—who is due next year—spoke out about the pregnancy news, which was first reported by People, by thanking her  1,152,000 Twitter followers for their kind words. “WOW. You guys are awesome. So kind. Thank you thank you thank you!” she tweeted. Then she jokingly added: “P.S. Babies eat mostly salsa, right?”

Man, that kid is going to have one heck of a sense of humor!

Was Glee’s Heather Morris Struck By “Pregnancy Brain?”

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Glee Heather Morris Pregnancy Brain Pregnant CelebrityTrue to her beyond-ditzy character, Brittany, on Glee, when it came time for Heather Morris to share her baby news with her cast mates, she came down with a bad case of pregnancy brain. Costar Matthew Morrison, who plays teacher Mr. Schuester on the show, tells BANG Showbiz, “It’s funny, when she told me—I think I was one of the first people—she whispered in my ear, ‘I’m 13 months pregnant’, and I was like, ‘Months?’ and she said, ‘I mean 13 weeks!’”

Don’t make fun of her, because you’ll realize soon enough, if you haven’t already, that when you’re pregnant the strangest things come out of your mouth—if you can even find the words at all. It’s not that you become stupid, or that your IQ drops or anything—it’s just that the strangest things seem to misfire in your head. When I was pregnant, I’d mix up people’s names, use the wrong word in a sentence, and my brain would constantly go blank mid-thought and I’d forget what I was talking about all together. It was the most bizarre feeling—my mind and my mouth just wouldn’t match up!

I interviewed Heather in 2011 for her cover story in Fitness magazine, and the smart woman I met is anything but the airhead she plays on TV (though she’s just as funny and as good at delivering one-liners as her alter ego). I truly think she’s going to be a great mom, because even then all she talked about was how she wanted to start a family with her boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, a former baseball player for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

I wish her the best. I think she’ll have no problems adjusting to mommyhood. She’s already an awesome aunt (She showed me pictures of her adorable nieces on her iPhone—she was so proud!). So my only advice to her is to not be too hard on herself because if she’s anything like I was, I’m sure that gaffe won’t be the last case of pregnancy brain before she gives birth. She’s reportedly due this October—just in time for season five of Glee.

Tell us: Have you had a case of pregnancy brain? What’s the funniest thing you’ve said?
