If 2010 was the year of the celebrity breakup, 2011 is the year of the celebrity pregnancy. There have been at least a dozen births or pregnancy announcements since the new year began, and if Us Magazine is to be believed, Kate Hudson is among the expectant mothers. Us claims that Hudson and boyfriend Matt Bellamy, the frontman of Muse, are expecting and that the actress is a mere 14 weeks along. Hudson also has a seven-year-old son, Ryder, from her marriage to Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson.
Hudson and Bellamy have been together for nine months but it’s been an intense year for them. Within a month of dating, Bellamy met Hudson’s mom, Goldie Hawn, and the pair reportedly were house hunting in New York this summer for a place to live together. Hopefully they found a place with an extra bedroom!

We’re very interested to see how Rachel Zoe having a baby boy will affect the reality star’s parenting style—we doubt any of the other moms are going to wear Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo shoes to t-ball practice. While chatting with Women’s Wear Daily, Zoe hinted at the sex of her unborn offspring, saying. “It all depends on his arrival.” Following RachelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s slip-up, husband Roger Berman confirmed, “It’s a little boy.” Despite denying the pregnancy in October only to confirm it via Twitter a month later, Zoe is well into her seventh month, a fact she’s not letting slow down her hummingbird-on-5-hour-energy-shots pace. “I’ve been asked to slow down. But to be totally honest, it’s kind of next to impossible when you’re planning your show and launching your collection, and in the middle of award season,” Rachel confirmed, before restyling the interviewer’s scarf, pinning a broach to Rodger’s wallet and flying around the room on a gust of her own manic energy.
In an interview with HarperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Bazaar, Berman confirms their son will be fashionable from the minute he gets pushed from the womb, whether he likes it or not. “Look at me! I have no predisposition to fashion, but thanks to Rachel I can’t leave the house without worrying about whether or not my clothes match,” Berman joked. Watching Rachel Zoe try to handle a sugar-crazed seven-year-old or a petulant teen driver while draped in vintage Chanel makes us hope their reality show keeps going forever. Or at least until the kid starts potty-training.
Sorry ladies, but it looks like the Butterscotch Stallion has finally been tamed. According to US Magazine, Owen Wilson and girlfriend Jade Buell are having a baby. “Owen Wilson and Jade Duell are happy to be expecting a baby,” Wilson’s rep confirms. Not only is Buell pregnant, but sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s “due any day!” Hmm, if Owen Wilson can keep his baby away from the paps for 9 months, you’d think Lindsay Lohan could do…well, anything, without the paparazzi watching. Really makes you think…
The source says the Wedding Crashers papa-to-be is “very excited and involved with the pregnancy.” Buell is currently in Hawaii where she plans to give birth, for which the pair “want to do everything as natural as possible.” In the meantime Owen “has been been doing research and learning as much as he can. He’s super into it and asks a lot of questions to make sure he knows what’s going on every step of the way.” We’d have thought starring in the Little Fockers would put someone off kids for eternity, but that’s just based on the trailer. Either way, congrats to Wilson and the fam! Hopefully they won’t wait 9 months before they send out the birth announcement either,
Or as they say in France, she has a croissant in her beret. Actress Marion Cotillard is pregnant with a bébé due this spring, reports US Magazine. Cotillard’s rep has confirmed the Nine star and her equally good-looking mate French director Guillaume Canet are expecting their first. That baby is going to be reading continental philosophy and sneering at tourists in no time!
Cotillard most recently appeared in the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards-nominated Inception along side Leo Dicaprio, and memorably won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. Cotillard and Canet met while working the French romantic thriller Love Me If You Dare in 2003, meaning that Marion’s life is now exactly the life we fantasized for ourselves when we were 16. Congratulations to the happy Gallic couple!

After a clearly-preggo pic of Jane Krakowski hit the web earlier today, she and fiance Robert Godley confirmed to E! News that they’re expecting their first child. While we’re super happy for the hilarious actress, we’re also dying to see how Tina Fey writes the baby bump into 30 Rock. Could Jenna Maroney get knocked up by her drag queen ex-boyfriend? We can only hope.
Turn your grandma away from the computer screen or else she is going to get some crazy new-fangled ideas, now that olds Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin are trying to have another baby. Despite the fact that Lisa is 47 and Harry is Rip Van Winkle-old, sources say the couple is gearing up to add Baby #3 to the family, joining tween daughters Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray. “The timing is just perfect now and the girls are at a great age,” an insider says. “How much fun would it be to watch these two as they prepare for another child?” More fun than what? Witnessing your own Pepaw and Memaw try to get with child? At least there are laws against watching that; no laws exist to spare us from Harry Loves Lisa, season 2.
Though Rinna hasn’t made an official statement confirming her baby quest, she has definitely hinted that procreation is on the menu. “In the mean time all I can say is trying is the fun part. Wink.” WINK INDEED! We just winked too, but it was actually our brains trying to shut our eyes forever against the image of their wrinkly love-making.
We’ve noticed a pattern about the speculation surrounding Mariah Carey‘s pregnancy: people (like us) throw around some rumors, the star herself stays quiet, and then a few weeks later, Nick Cannon confirms the rumor. That’s what happened when they announced that Mariah was pregnant, and it’s happening again, as the couple proudly confirm the rumor that they’re having twins.
Cannon revealed the news on his radio show, and explained that it was President Obama of all people that dragged the news out of them. Carey performed at the Christmas in Washington 2010 special on Sunday and during a conversation with the President and First Lady, they asked her “So, what are you having, are you having twins?”Ã‚Â Mariah and Nick said yes, because you don’t lie to the Commander In Chief, and you especially don’t lie to the Commander In Chief’s wife. Looks like Mariah’s going to have to revise her lyrics to “All I Want For Christmas Is You (Both Of You).”
Congrats to the couple—and we swear, we will finally stop speculating about your womb status now that this is cleared up.
Kim Kardashian is not carrying Kanye West‘s baby, or any baby, for that matter, but she does have an explanation for why you might think she is. Kardashian says that since she’s spent some time in New York recently, she’s actually become intimate with another man, who goes by the name Mr. Softee. Despite his, uh, limp name, he might be responsible for giving Kim a little pooch. She told MTV, “Those trucks, I’ve never seen that before — trucks of ice cream. You have to stop and eat! I couldn’t control myself, so [in] New York [I] put on like 10 pounds and then I’m pregnant with Kanye’s baby, so whatever! What can you do?! Hit the gym!” Indeed.
So there you have it. Kanye West isn’t even in the picture—an ice cream truck made Kim Kardashian pregnant. Hey, better that than Scott Disick!

Some happy Hollywood couple news to get you past ScarJo’s divorce: Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany are expecting! The pair, who met making A Beautiful Mind, already have a seven-year-old boy named Stellan (Connelly also has a 13-year-old son Kai, from an earlier marriage). Bettany, who stars in the upcoming 3d thriller Priest, and Oscar-winner Connelly hit the screen together again as Charles and Emma Darwin in last year’s aptly titled Creation. Actually, Creation sounds like a pretty awesome celebrity baby name—boy or girl!

The one thing we know about Pink, pregnant or otherwise, is that she doesn’t tolerate any bulls—. So when a “friend” apparently told In Touch, “Pink is opting for a water birth when she delivers her firstborn next spring. She did her research.”, the singer decided to clear the rumor in vintage Pink style. On Twitter, of course!
Leaving no room for any miscommunication whatsoever, she tweeted, “My mom just told me that “in touch” has informed her that she is invited to my delivery, and that I want a water birth. She asked me if she needs to get a snorkel. This is all news to me. Amazing. Good reporting.” Excuse us while we crack up! Good thing Pink wasn’t at Bed, Bath and Beyond at the time, because s— would really go down then. Who thinks this baby is going to be totally badass with a mom like her? We do!
