Rumor has it…well it’s not quite a rumor. Jessica Simpson is expecting baby # 2 with fiance Eric Johnson. The couple are proud parents of 8 month old Maxwell Drew Johnson.
With Christmas less than a month away, this is an early present for Simpson…Us Weekly exclusively confirms. Simpson gave birth to baby Max this past May.
A source reveled to Us, “It definitely wasn’t planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again.”
I wonder what Weight Watchers is thinking, Simpson slimmed down the 60 of the 70 lbs she put on with baby # 1.
This will definitely be a Christmas to remember, congrats Jes!
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Kim Zolciak, revealed to Life and Style that she is expecting her second child with husband Kroy Biermann.
“Kroy and I are so excited,” Zolciak, 33,(wayment, hol up…she is not almost 3 or 4 years older than me. I refuse to believe that lie) told Life & Style. “To decide we wanted to get pregnant again and have it happen so quickly was such a blessing.”
The outspoken reality star, who also has two daughters – Brielle, 15, and Ariana, 9 – from a previous marriage, is four months along into her pregnancy. She proudly shows off her growing baby bump in the pages of the magazine, on newsstands Wednesday.
“People are going to be shocked, because nobody knows,” said Zolciak, who has yet to find out the sex of the baby.
Whether the bun in the oven is a boy or girl, the part-time pop singer said she’s “so excited” for her young son to have “a little buddy” to play with.
April’s issue of Elle Magazine features the very pregnant Jessica Simpson in the nude and offers a cover of the billionaire fashionista in a red maxi dress.
“I’m a lil nervous but I’ve never felt more beautiful or empowered,” she tweetedyesterday about the photo’s public debut.
The 31-year-old is expexting a girl but says she’s worried fiancé Eric Johnson’s football player genes will dominate.
“I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” Jess declares. She also says she’s worried that fiance Eric Johnson’s love of sports will rub off on their new child: “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”
She also tells the mag that they’ve already chosen a name: “We’re sure on the name. It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know…why.”
Let’s guess…Chicken of The Sea!
In other baby news, Snooki is pregnant with a mini meatball!
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who became a household name thanks to her wild antics on MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” confirmed her pregnancy and engagement to boyfriend Jionni LaValle to Us Weekly.
“I have different priorities now,” Snooki told the magazine. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”
The petite, often-ridiculed reality star’s baby news comes after a week filled with rumors suggesting she was expecting, with anonymous sources spilling the beans to various outlets.
However, the rumors first popped up earlier this year, and though she was indeed pregnant at the time, she denied the stories because “she didn’t want to jinx herself,” a source told TMZ.
One thing Snooki does cop to in her Us Weekly exclusive: partying on New Year’s Eve, just days before she found out she was pregnant.
“‘S–t, I’ve been drinking!'” was Snooki’s first thought when she found out about her baby news. “I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.”
After the pregnancy buzz came the engagement rumors. Snooki stayed mum on claims that her boyfriend of a year and a half had popped the question, but wasn’t shy about flashing a rock on her ring finger while filming her “Jersey Shore” spin-off with pal, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, earlier this week in New Jersey.

The baby news doesn’t stop coming, Jessica Simpson’s ex-husband, Nick Lachey is expecting his first child with wife Vanessa Lachey.
Nick Lachey confirmed on Live! with Kelly, which he co-hosted Monday that his wife is expecting and is due late summer or early fall.
After Vanessa appeared on the show in early January, “she started to feel a little different, not herself,” Nick, 38, explained. “So she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. So we are having a baby!”
The giddy dad-to-be added: “I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to. The fact that it’s actually here, it’s overwhelming.”
And while the couple doesn’t yet know the sex of the baby, they will – if Nick has anything to do with it.
“We definitely want to know,” Lachey told Ripa. “I can’t take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don’t know. It’s like watching a sports game on TiVo.” SOURCE
Congrats to all of the couples, this must be the year of the babies. I just pray that I don’t drink any of the water, kool-aid, juice, alcohol or anything else that can increase my chances of procreation.
The first pics of Blue Ivy Carter are here. Beyonce & Jay-Z just posted these absolutely gorgeous pics of their one month old baby girl. The Carter’s declined magazines offers for the Blue Ivy, instead they took control of her debut and created a tumblr account.
Jay-Z shared the imtimate photos through his website, lifeandtimes.com, and posted this message to the fans:
We Welcome you to share in our joy.
Thank you for respecting
our privacy during this
Beautiful time in our lives.
The Carter Family
Isn’t she a beauty…whether she’s theirs biologically or not. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!!!!
Beyoncé and Jay-Z filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on January 26th to trademark the Blue Ivy name. This follows fashion designer Joseph Mbeh, who submitted an application to trademark ‘Blue Ivy Carter NYC’ just four days after the baby was born.
THIS IS GOING TO START A TREND…MAYBE I SHOULD TRADEMARK MY CHILDREN’S NAMES 😀
That request, along with another filed on January 20th, were rejected by the trademark office as they said the name belonged to a “very famous infant ” and customers would be tricked into believing that any product bearing the name would be associated with Jay-Z and Beyonce.
One Wisconsin boutique is in luck, though. The owners of a clothing store named Blue Ivy filed for a trademark back on Jan. 19, 2011, and the request was approved in August — well before Beyonce ever announced she was pregnant. (I’d sell the name for that MONEY!)
There have been some concerns raised by how quickly federal officers acted on the Carter’s trademark filing. Usually it takes several months for those applications to see the light of day, but Blue Ivy’s has seemingly been fast-tracked. (Money does talk)
Iraq war vet and Dancing With The Stars winner, J.R. Martinez and girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting a baby girl next spring.
The couple met when Martinez landed a role on All My Children in 2008…at the time, she was working as an assistant to the soap’s executive producer. The two became close friends, but it wasn’t until last year that the pair decided to take their friendship to the next level.
Martinez is already making plans for his little one stating, “I can’t wait to show her everything.” “I want to get her into sports and I want her to know she can do anything and be anything she wants to be.”
Most of all, Martinez says, he is looking forward to fatherhood so he can “pass on to my child things that have been passed on to me.”
“It’s a beautiful gift we’ve been given,” he adds.
“2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings,” Martinez said. “Diana and I were just asking ourselves, ‘How is 2012 going to top 2011?’ Well, we have our answer!”
Seems like 2011 was/is the year of the babies, remind me not to drink any of that water…I have 11 more days! 🙂
American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino, gave birth to a baby boy named Dallas Xavier Barrino yesterday in North Carolina. Baby Dallas weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz. and was 21 inches long. This is the second child for Fanny, she has a 10 yr old daughter named Zion.
“I feel so blessed that my son Dallas Xavier was born healthy, and is a wonderful new addition to our family,” Barrino, 27, tells PEOPLE. “I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support.”
No word if the child’s father Antwuan Cook is divorced from his wife Paula Cook. Barrino and Cook have been romatically linked since 2010 and I guess it really doesn’t matter now if the he’s married or not.
Fanny ought to be ashamed of herself but when you have low self-esteem, any “man” will do.
SN: Why doesn’t the child have his last name?
Kourtney Kardashian and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick are expecting their second child. The two have been together for four years and will soon be celebrating son Mason’s birthday as he turns 2 on Dec. 14.
The 32-year old reality star and entrepreneur made the announcement on the cover of Us Weekly, saying she took a pregnancy test about five weeks ago. “Now I’m nine weeks along,” she said. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.”
Kourtney just started a mommy blog, shooting videos that give tips and tricks to new mothers based on her time raising Mason.
Out of all of the gals, I like her the most. Best of luck! 🙂
