While Beyoncé’s pregnancy might have made our hearts explode in a collective burst of multi-colored tuxedo jackets, it also means it might be awhile before we see Beyoncé in A Star Is Born, Clint Eastwood‘s musical remake the often-rebooted film from 1937. The most recent version of the movie would be the 1976 film starring Barbra Streisand, and wait a minute…not only is she currently growing a tiny adorable person inside herself, but we just realized that Beyoncé is the new Barbra. It’s only Monday, but we do not see how this week could get any better for this woman.
While Eastwood was allegedly hoping for a February 2012 start, the arrival of Baby Hova will likely push back filming, unless the movie’s screenwriters can come up with an explanation for why Bey’s character would be holding a laundry basket in every scene. Oh, maybe she works at a laundromat. That wasn’t that hard. The delay might work out for the best anyway, seeing as how Leo DiCaprio, Clint’s first pick for the male lead, is opting not to do the film. Other names that have been bantered around include Christian Bale and Will Smith. Personally, we’re going to go ahead and suggest Jay-Z for the role, and then just subtly tweak the movie’s premise into being one giant, star-studden episode of A Baby Story. We’d all be on-board with that, right?

Maybe it’s a good thing Hilary Duff is out of Bonnie and Clyde. She was dropped from the movie when it was announced that Hils is preggo! Fantastic news, of course, but her being nixed sucked even more because getting booted out of a movie right after “Baby!” is such a downer.
However, getting kicked off Bonnie and Clyde has meant getting a $100,000 check as a severance fee for Hilary. Translation: she just scored a hundred grand for doing nothing at all. Sources told TMZ that Hilary had a “play-or-pay” contract where it was stipulation that the studio would have to give her a hefty fee, if they in any event, decided to not go with her. And it actually happened so she’s pocketed the considerable spare change. But when she was asked about the whole deal this weekend, Hils said, “I don’t wanna give them any more press than they’ve already gotten off me … I think [my] baby is a little bit more exciting.” Oof. Meow … and yes, getting babied deffo is!
Beyonce is pregnant! Beyonce is pregnant! Beyonce and Jay-Z are having a BABY! Ohmygod you guys, this is the best news of the year/decade/century/of all time. The singer made the announcement on the black carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards tonight, telling paparazzi and MTV that she is indeed, carrying Hov’s baby. She proudly cupped her blossoming baby belly as she posed in a stunning red gown. We can’t wait to gush about this pregnancy for the next few months.
Offer up your congrats to Beyonce and Jay-Z in the comments below!
Celebuzz is reporting that Brenda Song is pregnant with Trace Cyrus‘ child! Brenda’s 23 years old and is best known for her role on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and we all know of 22-year-old Trace because he’s a Cyrus and part of the now defunct Metro Station. They’ve been dating quietly for a couple of months and made their first appearance together at Nylon’s party in early May. Either of their reps haven’t said anything just yet, but the news is spreading like wildfire! Congratulations to the young parents-to-be and to Aunty Miley Cyrus as well!

Who knew these two were quiet contenders for giving pals Brangelina a run for their money? Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are going to be parents for a third time! No other details have been released except a short confirmation to the Associated Press. Their representatives said that the couple are “thrilled” to have baby number three on the way. Ben and Jenny (hah) are already parents to two daughters — Violet and Seraphina. Will the new addition to their brood make it a happy girly trio? Awww, we don’t know yet, but we’re sending them a big ol’ congratulations.

Hey, Eminem sort of had a “Bonnie & Clyde” co-starring a baby; why not the Duffster? TMZ is reporting that allegedly Hilary Duff was let go from The Story of Bonnie and Clyde due to the brand-new baby friend she has on the way. Just a week after Hilary Duff’s pregnancy was announced, a source claims that the film is moving on without her as the female lead. “Hilary wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be available until next June. If we could wait we would,” the source said, completely missing the fact that a pregnant Hilary Duff would be the only reason to see this movie. Plus all the berets.
Hilary’s departure from the movie was reportedly amicable, and we certainly hope that’s the case. The fact that filmmakers are looking to replace Clyde actor Kevin Zegers too suggests the the entire film is undergoing a shake-up. Considering how long we’ve been hearing rumors about this movie (at least 2009), maybe Hilary just didn’t want to wait until she’d need a bionic womb to start a family? At this rate they can just rehire Duff after she gives birth. Or when she’s 80.
She’s a yummy mommy for a second time now — as Taylor Lautner is well aware (poor guy). Jessica Alba gave birth to a daughter — she has two girls now — over the weekend and her name is Haven Garner. Jess announced the news via her Facebook page writing, “Hope you enjoyed the weekend. Cash and I are so excited to announce the birth of our daughter, Haven Garner Warren. She was born on Saturday [Aug. 13], weighed 7 lbs, and was 19 inches long. Healthy and happy! Big sister Honor [Marie, 3] couldn’t be more excited about the new addition to our family.”
This is so cute! Little Haven was born in L.A. and we’re surprised she didn’t come a little sooner considering Jess looked ready to pop at the Spy Kids 4 premiere, two weeks ago. And we love the fact that she has two girls now (we’re biased, of course). So much estrogen at the FABlife today, what with Hilary Duff announcing her pregnancy too. Major congratulations to Jessica, Cash and their expanded brood. Do you guys like the name of their latest addition?

Hilary Duff is pregnant! Yay for her and husband, pro hockey player Mike Comrie. This news also totally puts our ovaries to shame because, to press so fine a point — they’re so young! But, yes, we need to get over the fact that Hilary Duff is not 12, and didn’t just get done fighting with Lindsay Lohan over Aaron Carter. Those days are long gone, and the Duffster has now been a married lady for a year. To the date, guys — they got hitched on August 14, 2010 in Montecito, California.
Hils broke the news on her official website writing, “Ã‚Â Hello everyone!Ã‚Â This weekend, Mike and I are celebrating our 1 year anniversary! Ã‚Â …Ã‚Â We also want to share the exciting news thatÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ BABY MAKES THREE!!!Ã‚Â We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives.Ã‚Â Thanks to everyone for the continued love and support throughout the years!” Awww. Congratulations you two! Boy, girl or are you going to go the surprise route?
Lauryn Hill might be trying to shoot down rumors, but she’s only succeeded in producing a million more of them. After rumors swirled that the singer’s partner Rohan Marley and Isabeli Fontana, a Brazilian model, are dating, Hill stepped forward to clear up a few things, such as the common misconception that Marley is the father of her Lauryn Hill’s new baby. “Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning,” Hill wrote via her rep’s Twitter.” To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions. We both value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it. Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to both of us.” Seeing as how Hill’s new son is her sixth child…plus the fact that she didn’t technically deny Marley was modelizingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦we see what you did there, Lauryn.
Continued the Fugees star, “Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son.” Rohan Marley retweeted the message, and late added, “I’m forwarding all well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son. I’m sure she’ll appreciate the love being sent to her.” The two then high-fived and laughed hysterically while the rest of us scratched our heads over what exactly is going on.
Word is out that Lauryn Hill’s baby arrived on Saturday, thus making the Fugees star the proud mother of a full Olympic volleyball team. The singer’s new son brings the grand total of children she has with partner Rohan Marley, son of reggae legend Bob, to six. Older siblings Zion, Selah, Joshua, John and Sarah are no doubt excited to have a new baby in the house, though of course that means one more kid to be jealous of just how excellent “To Zion” is.
“Mother and baby are fine,” a source told the site Black Celebrity Kids following the birth, saying that the singer “had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy.” Lauryn Hill’s pregnancy was only announced as recently as June, after the singer explained to a Detroit audience why she would be taking a break from performing, and also why it looked like she had a cantaloupe tucked in the top of her pants.
