Oh, Nick Cannon, we should have known you’d be the kind of guy to get off on a big April Fool’s joke. Cannon fled NY’s 92.3 Now mid-show this morning, announcing “Real talk, I gotta go, my wife!” after taking a phone call, with the station then tweeting “this could be the BIG DAY!!!” Perez Hilton, a regular call-in guest, was told about the hubbub, and quickly posted an exclusive that Mariah was in labor. Cannon’s co-worker Nikki Hesse even said on air “We just spoke to him on the phone. He’s going to airport right now bc (because) she’s in L.A… Confirming news from Nick Cannon… It’s time!! He’s on the way to (the) airport. He is keeping us updated throughout the rest of show. Stay tuned for an update.”
That update did eventually come, on Nick Cannon’s Twitter. “Just pulled the best April Fools’ prank on my radio show 92.3 Now FM. Got to take most of the morning off! LOL Sorry… April Fools.” Needless to say, Perez was pretty pissed, changing the headline “Mariah Carey In Labor” to “Nick Cannon is lame.” Maybe Nick will make it up to him by having Perez be the godfather.

Looks like Zooey Deschanel’s sister is filled with Bones. Little teeny baby bones, that is! Ugh, we’re sorry. People just confirmed Bones‘ star Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy, but we’re having a hard time coming up with cute jokes since the mommy-to-be plays a no-nonsense forensic pathologist. We mean, she spends each episode knee-deep in dead bodies. Not exactly baby shower material, you feel us?
Let’s try this again. You know who probably has really weird bones? It’s Always Sunny‘s Rickety Cricket, played by Deschanel’s husband and soon-to-be papa David Hornsby. Ugh, no, still too gross for a happy baby post. The couple met in 2007, and married last September; this will be the first child for both. We hope the proud parents don’t have a bone…to pick with us if we dig up…some info on whether their kid is going to be a boy or girl. Cadavers, Argh, we were so close!

Though there’s no official confirmation yet, every gossip rag under the sun has a source saying Kevin Federline and girlfriend Victoria Prince are expecting their first child. While this will be Victoria’s first bundle of joy, the child will join sons Jayden, Preston and Kaleb and daughter Kori in the Federline flock he started with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson and ex-wife Britney Spears. Good thing he’s a hard working, gainfully employed fellow who can provide for his children…oh wait.
K-Fed and Prince, a former pro volleyball player, have been dating for over two years, which is notably longer than he waited to marry and knock up Britney (not that nuptials have been announced yet for the parents-to-be). While Prince was rumored to be pregnant in 2009, the current rumor seems to be getting a lot more traction. How long before K-Fed coaches a softball team made solely of his offspring?
You didn’t think Mariah Carey was going to go into labor wearing just a plain old hospital gown, did you? Earlier this afternoon Mariah Carey tweeted a photo of her baby bump decorated with a butterfly, gold glitter and the phrase “dem babies.” We assume Carey painted it on, though we also wouldn’t be surprised to hear that’s just what Mariah’s skin looks like. “My attempt @ festiveness on 327! For ATLITL thank u + I♥U! Comin soon #dembabies! LYMA+thanx 4 making me happy:),” the singer tweeted. Only Mariah can make her own uterus a love letter to her best album and get away with it.
Just like Mariah’s next album, we cannot wait her offspring to drop. Despite Mariah Carey’s hospitalization for false contractions, the singer reassured her fans that the kids “have a few more weeks 2 go.” We wonder if Mariah might be making things a little hard on herself. Labor is already difficult enough without worrying about sparkles getting in her doctor’s eyes, or distracting the Pegasus she’s using as a delivery table.

Rachel Zoe is in labor with her first child at the moment! Zoe reportedly checked into Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles yesterday. According to one report, Zoe has already given birth to a baby boy but we’re still on high alert because no one else has confirmed the news. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear for sure.

Apparently what the Spice Girls all really, really want, besides to zig-a-zig-ahh, are loads of babies. Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham, is pregnant with her fourth child, the appropriately-named Baby Spice, Emma Bunton, has number two on the way, and it was just announced that Melanie “Mel B” Brown, the scariest of all Spices, is pregnant with her third child.
Speaking to US Magazine, Brown said “Both my pregnancies have been lucky and happy and exciting, no matter what situation I’ve been in.” Perhaps she was referencing the “exciting” paternity battle she engaged in with ex Eddie Murphy over their daughter Angel, now 3. “This is different because we have been married for four years,” Brown said, referring to her husband Stephen Belafonte. “We have a history together, we’re best friends, we’re in it together, and he’s totally supportive.” Congrats to all the Spices on your new babies and your ability to stay topical all these years later!

They don’t call it “baby mama drama” just because it sounds cool and it rhymes. While she may or may not be pregnant with Ryan Phillippe’s baby, one thing’s for sure: Alexis Knapp denies asking Ryan Phillippe for money. Despite rumors than Knapp is upset Phillippe isn’t supporting her until a paternity test can be performed, the So Undercover actress wants to make it clear that she is not out for the actor’s cash. “She has never asked Ryan for any help, nor does she expect it,” Knapp’s rep asserts. “Alexis has maintained her silence and will continue to do so. Any ‘source’ claiming to have been her or her camp up to this point is false.” Yeah, and Maury would probably get really upset if she opened up and preempted the big reveal. That’s what you guys meant by “maintain her silence,” right? Right?
Earlier today Phillippe and Amanda Seyfrend worked out together, though if Ryan is limbering up for the “You Are Not The Father” dance, he still has to wait until June to know if he’ll be performing it. Says Alexis’ rep, “She continues to appreciate the love and support of her family and friends.” Not that the support of an A-list actor would be such a terrible thing either.
You think Amanda Seyfried seems like pure sweetness now, with those blond locks and angelic face, but ten bucks says lasers are about to blast out of her giant Precious Moments eyeballs when she hears about this. According to US Magazine, actress Alexis Knapp is pregnant with ex Ryan Phillippe’s baby, or so claims the So Undercover star herself. “She’s in the second trimester,” a source tells US. “She has been telling people he is the father. Ryan doesn’t know if he is the dad. If he is, he will take full responsibility for the child,” another source reported. Seems like Ryan should know which women women could potentially be carrying his offspring, but we understand; it’s hard to keep track when you’re an actor.
Having dated Phillippe for a few months this summer, Knapp has a noticeable baby bump, or so suggest pics taken of the actress around L.A. Um, even if they just dated in August, that would make her about seven months pregnant; she didn’t bring this up to him before then? According to People, Knapp’s baby is due in June. Currently Phillippe is dating Amanda Seyfried, has two children with Reese Witherspoon and is rumored to have flirted with Rihanna recently: three women who are undoubtedly rolling their eyes so hard and in perfect unison, it looks like it should be a sport in the 2016 Summer Olympic.
Judi Dench, you rascal! That’s one lowwww-cut muumuu for a septuagenarian, damn! Woops, it turns out the gray-haired cleavage flasher at the Lincoln Lawyer premiere in LA last night was the quite pregnant Pink, who might want to consider a different hair color if she’s going go Golden Girls in her wardrobe as well. The stars of Matthew McConaughey‘s (hopeful) dramatic comebackÃ‚Â film were there as well—including Ryan Phillippe, whose girlfriend Amanda Seyfried must have been busy hawking her own flick, Red Riding Hood. See photos of all the stars in the gallery below—and where can we get our hands on Mateo’s silver suit? Sharp!
Oh, to have been a fly on the wall when Madonna learned Guy Ritchie‘s big news—a rep for Sherlock Holmes director confirmed that Ritchie and model Jacqui Ainsley are expecting their first child. Though the pair were first spotted together less than a year ago, The Daily Mail reports Ainsley has been baby-crazy for a while. “They have been keen to start a family. We expect to hear wedding bells next year,” says their source. “Jacqui was crying with joy when she found out. They went on holiday because Guy is desperate for her to take it easy. He won’t let her do anything more strenuous than argue over baby names.”
Not only does Guy appear to have a type (we see a little Madge in Ainsley), he also has a style—Madonna had already delivered the first of their two children, Rocco (now 10), before the two married in December 2000. There was already buzz of Madonna being jealous of Ainsley’s popularity with her children, how will she take the news that the 28-year-old model is giving them a step-sibling?
