It seems Angie and Brad’s mission to accumulate children faster than it would be humanly possible to reproduce is not abating anytime soon. Both Britain’s Grazia and Heat magazines are saying the insanely beautiful and prodigious pair are going to adopt another baby girl from Ethiopia “imminently”. Grazia claims that they’re traveling to the country’s capital, Addis Ababa, later this month to pick up their latest addition from the Wide Horizons for Children orphanage. “Brad and Angelina have seen pictures of a two-year-old girl they’d love to adopt,” a source tells the magazine. Blimey
Even more startling is Heat‘s reckoning that Angelina also plans to get pregnant again in 2009, having already told the crew on her upcoming film Salt that she plans to be up the stick by the time shooting starts this March. “She takes prenatal vitamins and eats really healthily and plans to conceive another baby in the next few months,” the mag reports. Hey, we know Angie was recently advised to give her hardworking uterus a break but clearly no-one tells Ms. Jolie what to do. She’s still that “punk girl with tattoos”, remember? [Photo: AFP]
Yay! Jennifer Garner has had her baby! People is reporting that “Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck gave birth to a healthy baby girl.” (Well, if we’re going to get all particular about it, it’s Jen’s hard work in the “giving birth” arena, but hey). We at Scandalist are thrilled to hear the news, especially since we were wondering if the baby was so warm and cozy in there, it was planning on taking up permanent residence. But great news, guys! And we’re looking forward to another traditional-yet-quirky name, please. Ahhhh.
The arrival of daughter no. 2 for Ben means he and his male life partner bud Matt Damon are now both part of female-dominated households (Matt’s got a stepdaughter and two daughters, too). Expect the pair of them to totally forget they used to be the young hot things of Hollywood back in the day, and turn all scary-protective Bruce Willis-style on any potential suitors’ asses in a few years’ time… [Photo: Splash News Online]
Jessica Alba may be notorious for her unbecoming perma-frown, but her daughter Honor (with hubby Cash Warren) only makes her mommy’s cuteness factor skyrocket. Suri Cruise, Violet Affleck and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt should all watch their tiny backs – there’s a new top baby in Tinseltown, and she’s winning us over with those big brown eyes!

Ugly Betty actress Rebecca Romijn (remember when she was married to John Stamos?) and Crossing Jordan star Jerry O’Connell (remember when he was the fat kid in movies like Stand By Me?) have announced the birth of daughters Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip. The twins, born on Dec. 28th, are the couple’s first. Namesake Dolly Parton must be ecstatic.
Gasp! Angelina Jolie‘s life – and body – is not as perfect as we all think. Doctors have advised the baby-making machine and all-around hottie from pushing out more kids, due to her previous two pregnancies ending in emergency c-sections. “She’s been told that, at the least, she should not get pregnant for a year after her last deliver, and it would be safer if she did not get pregnant, ever,” revealed a source with insider knowledge of the super-famous womb.
Angie has revealed in the past that she just loooooves being pregnant, so we’re a little worried about what will happen when someone deals her a big, fat ‘NO.’ But if the actress is sad about this news, we imagine her six kids are pretty psyched. Surely they’re ready to put a cap on the sibling limit in the Jolie-Pitt mansion, right? And even Shiloh knows that mommy can always feed her baby addiction by randomly placing her slender finger on a map of the earth and piloting a jet to the local orphanage for some adoption fun.

It seems the only celebrity photos around at the moment are of bikini-clad A-listers whooping it up in the sun (grrr), or of a still heavily pregnant Jennifer Garner. Seriously this gestation period seems to have been going on for around seven years! Hurry up and have the baby already, Jen!
We are impressed at your remarkable energy in these final weeks (days? Minutes?) of going out every day, but it would be nice to have some “real” news to read about rather than roundups of 2008, boring celebrity resolution features (apparently Cameron Diaz wants to start wearing a bra for 2009 — you and us both, Cammy) and pieces criticizing invisible A-list swimsuit cellulite. Think of your public, please, Jen! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Bristol Palin followed in her mother’s shoes this weekend, when she gave birth to a 7 lb., 7 oz., baby boy and bestowed upon him a strange (yet oddly adorable) monniker: Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston. The teen popped out her firstborn on Saturday at around 5:30 AM in the morning, and her great-aunt told People that “The baby is fine and Bristol is doing well. Everyone is excited.”
No one more so than Bristol, we imagine, as she’s rumored to be raking in some serious cash for the exclusive first pics of her tot. Bidding for the photos reportedly started around $100,000, and People finally landed the deal at a price around $300,000. Not bad for an 18-year-old who has yet to graduate college. We’re sure her fame-hungry mama is proud, dontcha think? [Photo: GettyImages]
Choosing not to introduce their baby to the world in a big bucks magazine photo shoot, Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson debuted the first photo of their one month old baby, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, on their holiday card.
The card reads, “We decided to share the best gift we could ever receive with you: Bronx Mowgli Wentz. We couldn’t be happier. And in the spirit of the holidays, we’d like to encourage you to give on your own. Below is a list of worthwhile charities that need your support. www.theirc.org, www.roomtogrow.org, www.richiemaddenfoundation.com” [Photo: FriendsorEnemies.com]
Although Lance Armstrong has had romances with high profile hotties like Kate Hudson, Sheryl Crow, and Mary-Kate Olsen, the seven time Tour d’ France winner has chosen a much more low key lady for his babymama.
His current girlfriend Anna Hansen, with whom he is expecting a baby, is no red carpet regular. Anna is a Program Manager and Recruiter for First Descents, which provides whitewater kayaking and other outdoor adventure experiences to promote emotional, psychological, and physical healing for young adults with cancer. Anna, an avid mountainbiker and snowboarder, hails from Vail, Colorado. She has a degree in biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, has been a volunteer at the Children’s Hospital in Denver and serves on the board of directors for camp Wapiyapi, a foundation providing hope and support for families with childhood cancer. Lance and Anna began quietly dating in July, when they met through charity work. Check out our gallery of Lance’s ladies of the past! [Source: First Descents, Photo: First Descents, Getty Images]
Lance Armstrong is going to be a father again. He and his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, are expecting a child.
“Anna and I are thrilled to confirm that we are expecting in June and our families are ecstatic and grateful,” a rep for Lance confirmed.
Lance already has three children with ex-wife Kristen Richards, who were conceived with sperm Lance had banked before he underwent chemotherapy for cancer. [Source: LA Times; Photo: Getty Images]
