When we imagine Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s parenting style, we picture a lot of platinum-encrusted diapers, Pegasus rides and, of course, that million dollar minivan. Jay-Z, however, pictures himself repeating his own father’s mistake of walking out on the family. “It makes me a little paranoid because no matter what, I don’t think any person, or any male, goes into a relationship thinking that they’re going to leave or wouldn’t be there,” Hov told People at GQ‘s Men of the Year party last night. “I think the circumstances a lot of times dictates things, right?” The fact that Jay-Z is even worried about bringing his paternal A-game suggests that he’ll be an excellent pop. Plus, if not Beyonce will literally do the “Run The World (Girls)” dance on his face.
Despite his prenatal fears, the rapper seems secure in his knowledge that he will make an appropriately awesome father for Babyonce. “I come from a real place where you had to be a highly principled person,” he explained, “so, I’m pretty confident that I’ll figure it out.” Oh, and it turns out we were wrong about those diapers. They wouldn’t be platinum. “No, leather!” Jay-Z joked. And…we’ve seamlessly fit that detail into the fantasy. Back to the minivan!
Someone start welding a teeny tiny metal bustier, because if Kelly Rowland is correct, we have proof positive that Beyonce’s baby is a girl. “I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyonce at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible,” Rowland told Bang Showbiz. “She won’t be spoilt but she will be very well looked-after.” Did we or did we not call it with our fantasy registry? Now to send out those fantasy Evites and papier mache that fantasy baby duckling pinataâ€¦
In Touch had previously reported that Babyonce is a girl, but Bey’s former Destiny Child‘s bandmate would be the first person in the know to actually confirm it. Joked Rowland, “I’ll be on hand for babysitting duties and I’m actually very good with messy diapers!” Kelly had better hope Beyonce wanted everyone to know about her daughter just yet. If not, someone is going to get mowed down by one exorbitantly expensive maternity van.

I know, America. Between Kris and Kim’s divorce and this announcement, today’s celebrity news is Obvs 101. But Jessica Simpson deserves points for creativity. She knows that we know. But she also knows that we know that nothing’s real until she tweets it or sells the story to a magazine. She opted for tweeting “!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!” with a link to her BeautyMint site, where she posted a photo of her holding her belly and looking strangely hot as a mummy in lace with the caption, “It’s true — I am going to be a mummy.”
Not exactly the classy Beyoncé/VMA red-carpet pose, but we’ll take it. And every time JSimps shows she has a sense of humor about herself, we want to hug her. So does the rest of the world, apparently, because her website crashed from the onslaught of viewers probably not rushing to buy her skincare line. (This is an odd sales tactic: I wanted to see pictures of your baby bump, but now that I’m here, I DO want to know how you can make my fine lines disappear!) Maybe sales of lotions will make up for her apparently not getting that $500,000 magazine deal?

Is there anything better than an old dad? Always falling asleep on the couch in front of Two And A Half Men so you can sneak out at a reasonable hour? Easily convinced that you need an iPad for school because he doesn’t actually know what they are? Looks like Bruce Willis‘ baby with wife Emma Heming will reap the benefits that half-siblings Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Belle never got when they were kids … 20 years ago. Considering that Bruce is currently 56, and new baby Willis will be at least 17 years younger than her next oldest sibling, he or she has a whole new world of hard candies and house slippers to explore! Maybe this is a sign that now is the perfect time for Bruce to segueing over into kids movies. Dad Hard: Live Free or Dad Hard? Dad Hard: A Good Day To Dad Hard? You roll your eyes now, but it’s going to be adorable.

Didn’t this photograph make you turn into mush? James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly have a second babyÂ due, so the family shots are going to get even cuter. The couple already have one daughter — pictured above — named Olivia who is just over a year old. She now has a little brother or sister on the way. James tweeted the news just a couple of hours ago, writing, “Just when we thought we couldn’t feel any more blessed, it seems the universe has plans to give our daughter a sibling…” Congratulations to the Van Der Beeks!
Jessica Simpson, you need to get on your game! Everyone knows the point of having an adorable baby with your gorgeous husband is to show all your exes how great your life is! Oh, and to create a family to love and cherish forever. Regardless!
Jessica Simpson’s alleged baby bump might be obvious to anyone with eyes to see, but it’s her ex Tony Romo’s baby who got an official announcement out there first. “Um, no, I don’t have any kids. I’ve actually got one on the way. My wife’s pregnant.,” Romo told a cheering crowd of kids while visiting Cedar Hill High School outside of Dallas today. See, Jessica! You could have had an auditorium full of ninth graders cheering for your fetus! Granted Romo and Simpson split back in 2009 and probably don’t even think about each other anymore, but what about us? Jessica had better pop that sucker out first, is all we’re saying. Do it for the fans!

Girrrrrrrrrl, we’d say the jig is up. Rumors of Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy have been swirling for quite a while now, though so far Simpson has remain silent on the issue. Her gigantic abdomen, however, speaks volumes. Unless Jessica has eaten all the sandwiches everywhere, we have to suspect that there is a teeny, tiny future reality star/singer on the way, and soon! Of course, last week the New York Post alleged that Jessica Simpon’s baby bump will remain on the DL until she lands a $500,000 deal to publish the first photos of the baby. Some reports say OK! is paying up, but we still haven’t heard any confirmation. At this rate, Jessica’s going to be signing the paperwork when her water breaks! And that, friends, is just bad business.

Yes, it certainly looks like it is, Jessica Simpson. Rumors have been rife about Jessica being pregnant, and some “sources” have gone so far as to reveal what sort of cravings she’s been having (nachos dipped in chocolate). She reportedly sold the story to OK! for half a million dollars, and the story is said to be coming out this Thursday. Word spread last week that Jess had delayed the announcement while shopping for a deal, which she was apparently unable to get till the last moment.
It’s a good thing they paid up, because by the looks of these photos taken at JFK airport on Saturday, Jessica can’t “hide” her pregnancy much longer. Look at the pictures. Both in profile and frontal, that definitely looks like a large baby bump. Right? Sound off with the congratulatory messages.

We love how pregnant and official Jennifer Garner looks right now. The actress was spotted in Santa Monica looking like she meant business in a blazer, killer high heels and a fitted skirt with a slit. And a rather large baby bump, of course. We’re used to seeing the trendy celebrity maternity wardrobe, but this is a whole different vibe … and we totally approve.

Hilary DuffÃ‚Â spilled the beans onÃ‚Â an upcoming episode of The Ellen DeGeneresÃ‚Â show that airs this coming Monday. With all the interest surrounding her pregnancy, the wee songstress revealed that she’s going to have aÃ‚Â baby boy! It’s not that much of a surprise to her because she said she “had a feeling it was a boy the whole time.” About her pregnancy itself (it’s been four months), she’s been lucky enough not to go through any morning sickness just yet. “But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kind of like a little alien has taken over your body,Ã¢â‚¬Â Hilary told Ellen, adding,Ã‚Â “You just donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t quite feel normal. But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cool. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been good.” Great news! Now onwards with all the blue and yellow color coding for the little Duffster when he arrives!
