Looks like Kate Hudson was fibbing when she told Hello! Magazine that marriage “wasn’t in her future right now,” because the actress just flashed an impressive ring on Today, confirming to Matt Lauer that she and boyfriend Matthew Bellamy of the band Muse are engaged (“This is new!”). Hudson has denied wedding plans since announcing she was pregnant with Bellamy’s child in January, and says the proposal finally came around a week ago. “[It was] very sweet and very romantic,” said Hudson.
Despite telling Hello! she’d “shift focus and spend more time at home” after her child’s birth in July (she has a 7-year-old, Ryder, from her marriage to The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson), Hudson also told Lauer she’d still love to play Linda Lovelace in the other film planned about the former porn star (Inferno, starring Malin Akerman, is still a go). Somehow we don’t think Hello! will be sending Kate a wedding gift.

While most women who are eight months pregnant with twins would be groaning under a pile of Snuggies in front of a Snapped marathon, Mariah Carey’s Easter egg baby bump demonstrates once again that the woman will be a diva until, during and after they cut the umbilical cords. “HAPPY EASTER! Ummm.. READY!!!!!!!!!!!! Done and done,” Mariah tweeted while posting the pic. Let’s not even get into how good her hair looks in that picture; we can barely manage to wash ours, and we don’t have two tiny people subletting our abdomen.
First we had Mariah’s butterfly belly paint in March, then an egg for Easter. Might I suggest a life-sized portrait of Mariah’s mom for Mother’s Day, in case the babies, due in early May, haven’t made an appearance yet? For all we know the woman doing the painting could be Carey’s best friend since grade school, but we’d like to imagine it’s her full-time, live-in womb decorator. Of course, given the Mariah Carey nude pregnancy photos and $100,000 baby nursery we’ve already read about, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear Carey hired the artist to join them in the delivery room, where she can dodge thrown bed pans as she puts the final finishing touches on one exquisite Arbor Day mural.

Mariah Carey does not need this right now, Nick Cannon. That woman is too huge and too uncomfortable for you to come home and explain why there are 400,000 voice mails left blinking on the machine. Mariah’s lucky she didn’t immediately go into labor when she heard that Nick Cannon gave out their home phone number on his radio show. “Home phone numbers are just like Twitter anyway. I use this more than I use my home phone,” Cannon rationalized on Twitter afterward. “So what’s the big deal?” Sure, but if every fan in the Tri-State area is tying up your phone lines, this might be something of an annoyance to the extremely pregnant wife you having living in your house. Think, Nick. Think.
It turns out, one lucky caller actually got through to Mariah, which we’re sure she is completely fine with and not silently planning to make Nick sleep on the sidewalk tonight. “My wife is going to kill me over this … Just gave out my home phone number on air and my pregnant wife picked up the line oops!” Nick Cannon tweeted. “Thanks to my amazing wife for being a good sport and allowing me to make good radio. @MariahCarey you are the best!” We’re have no doubt Mariah was as gracious as ever. She’s going to need someone to scream at once those contractions start coming.
Finally! We feel like we’ve been waiting forever to hear about the decadence that is Mariah Carey’s baby nurseries. Luckily Mimi and husband Nick Cannon didn’t dissapoint, dropping $100,000 on their kids’ rooms, including a $30,000 crib. “Everything matches, but pieces are individualized to celebrate the twins as separate entities,” the mom-to-be explained, opting to go with gender-neutral green for her son and daughter. “I feel like I’m bringing two individuals into the world, so I wanted to do more than cookie-cutter styles in blue and pink.” Besides, green will complement Mariah’s twins’ diamond iPods really nicely.
Carey designed their New York nursery with decorator Mario Buatta, but tapped designer Gail Sedigh for their L.A. baby digs. “The ceiling has orangey-pink clouds in a blue sky with golden stars twinkling. It’s based on two songs I wrote that are fan favorites: ‘Underneath the Stars’ and ”Close My Eyes,'” Carey explains. Imagine something similar to Mariah’s painted baby bump, but with higher ceilings and more natural light. Sadly, Mariah’s signature insect, the butterfly, is nowhere to be seen. Just kidding; there are butterflies everywhere. “Sometimes I just sit in the nursery and stare at the ceiling because I love it so much. To me, it symbolizes wanting my children to dream as big as possible and to let their imaginations be unbridled.” With a mom like Mariah, we can only imagine what bigger, even more pastel dreams her children will have.

A lot of things change once a woman gets pregnant: her body, her diet, her level of interest in the occult. If Kate Hudson‘s pregnancy is any indication, these changes may or may not include some light to moderate witchcraft. While being interviewed by Entertainment Tonight about her new movie, Something Borrowed, co-starring John Krasinski and produced by Hilary Swank, Kate Hudson predicted her baby’s sex using a pendulum made of her own hair and a gold ring. Apparently “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” includes expecting supernatural forces to tell you whether to stock up on pink or blue onesies.
“This is very witchy of me,” Hudson explained, as the pendulum spun in a circle above her belly. “A circle is a girl, and a boy, it goes back and forth.” Based on the movement of a piece of medal, Kate is predicting a girl for her and musician Matt Bellamy this summer. Hudson already has has a son, Ryder, from her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson. For the birthing ceremony, Hudson just needs some burning, the semen of a righteous man and an opening weekend box office of at lease $20 million. Though at least two out of three ain’t bad.

Despite the eye-watering punishment the Jackass star’s penis has received over the years, Johnny Knoxville’s baby announcement with wife Naomi Nelson suggests that, while his junk might look like “a dogÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s chew-toy” and/or “a sock thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s lost its elasticity,” it’s not about to give up the ghost quite yet. “My wife naomi and i are super happy to announce that we are having another little bambino in the fall,” the actor wrote on his Facebook wall. “My 15-year-old daughter madison is very excited about it, and her 16-month-old little brother rocko has, well, no clue. wahoo!!” Here we are this whole time, watching Knoxville get gorged in the testicles and thrown into the handlebars of a motorcycle over and over again like he’s an idiot. We should have had more faith in him. And his wiener.
After spending six years getting sucked into the purgatory universe and blowing up houses on Lost, having a baby probably seems like the height of relaxation. Sure, you might have to stay up until 4:00am every night for a year, but at least you don’t have be running through the forest to do it. According to photos snapped of the actress in Hawaii, Evangeline Lilly is pregnant. The baby will be the first child for Lilly and boyfriend Norman Kali, who she met as a production assistant on her star-making ABC show. Lilly is next slated to appear in Real Steel with Hugh Jackman, a futuristic film where 2,000-lbs human robots box for supremacy, and there’s rumors of a sequel already. Enjoy those vomit-covered jammies will you can, Evangeline.
While Tina Fey has stuck to loose, flowing outfits while promoting her new book Bossypants and filming scenes for 30 Rock, she finally gave everyone an eyeful of baby bump on the Late Show, wearing a tight black dress for her Letterman taping. The episode won’t air until Friday, but photographers got a good look as she left the studio last night. See more photos of Fey in the gallery below.
Tori Spelling‘s Twitter bio says “…Mommy of 2″ but she’s going to have change that in a couple of months. Tori is preggers with her third child with husband Dean McDermott. She made the big announcement on where else but Twitter, writing, “I know there’s been a lot of speculation, so I wanted everyone to hear from me… Its official…Dean & I are PREGNANT!!!!” Congratulations! Although, we have to admit that we really weren’t speculating about anything of the sort.
It does seem like Tori and Dean have been getting down to business, though. They’ve been married since 2006, so this is their third child in five years! They already have a son and a daughter—Liam and Stella—who are just adorable. But Dean told UsMagazine yesterday “we want a couple more,” so expect this brood to expand even more.

Congratulations to the happy…couplers? Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro and model Alana Stewart are having a child, the pair confirmed to Life & Style, though they’re not a romantic unit. “Kimberly is pregnant. Benicio is the father and is very supportive,” said her rep. “Although they are not a couple, they are looking forward to the arrival of the baby.” It’s odd gossip rags weren’t paying close attention to whenever these two hooked up, considering how often they’ve been spotted with other celebs: Benicio has dated ladies like Valeria Golino, Claire Forlani and Catherine Keener, while Stewart spent time with men like Tommy Lee, Jason Mewes and King Of Leon Caleb Followill (Stewart was engaged to Laguna Beach‘s Talen Torriero in 2005).
If this news wasn’t odd enough, let’s not forget that Kimberly’s 66-year-old father Rod just had his eighth child earlier this year. Aw, what a lucky guy: how many men can say they got a kid and a grandkid in the very same year? This whole thing sounds like a potential rom-com treatment to us!
