We awoke this morning to the news that Jay-Z and Beyoncé, were expecting a baby. The source, MediaTakeout.com, divulged the news saying they heard it from a “ROCK SOLID” source (so, Ashford and Simpson?) and that Beyoncé was “doing fine and resting for now” which sounds more like a report you’d give after someone has actually given birth, but whatever.
It seemed weird that such an under-the-radar site was confirming such big news, but several news outlets picked up on the story which made the story more believable. Just a few hours later though, a publicist for Beyoncé’s record company, Sony, has told Rolling Stone that the report is untrue. Earlier in the year, the singer said that she was planning to take some time off after a very busy 2009, which led to speculation that she wanted to start a family, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer. Maybe she’s just trying to deflect attention away from her father, who can’t keep his super-sperm in check. [Photo: Getty Images]
Russell Brand and Katy Perry arrived at LAX from Heathrow Sunday for their first appearance stateside since Brand proposed to his “I Kissed A Girl”-friend of around five months (though she filmed a cameo for his upcoming Get Him To Greek earlier, Brand and Perry reportedly first hooked up at the MTV VMAs in August). Naturally, they were ambushed by paparazzi—after all, who doesn’t want to see the rock (check out a close-up in the gallery below)? But here’s a trickier question: why did these two hellions rush to make things official?
People—reading between the lines on Perry’s twitter—thinks she might be pregnant. After all, who else but a pregnant lady would repeatedly demand In-N-Out burgers, and announce she loves her man with a “barf” at the end? OK, at least half the female population of LA, but what about when she tweeted “I heard ur prego-ed” to her man? That couldn’t be just a joke about unfounded gossip, could it? Actually it could—quite easily. But with Brand on record as anxious to propogate, a productive coupling wouldn’t be much weirder than the engagement itself.
Jennifer Hudson earned a Critics’ Choice Movie Award, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA and a SAG award all in one year for her role in “Dreamgirls,” proving that she doesn’t do anything halfway when she starts something. She’s taking the same approach with her family, too, because reports have surfaced that just four short months after giving birth to her first child, David Jr., she and fiancé David Otunga are expecting baby #2.
A source tells Star that the timing of the pregnancy was a bit of a surprise, saying, “Jennifer was in total shock when she found out she was having another baby. She had wanted some space between the kids’ ages.” Hey, if Jennifer needs some advice about having back-to-back babies, maybe Britney Spears can offer some up, she seems to be managing pretty well these days. Regardless of the timing, we think it’s great news and wish her family the best! [Photo: GettyImages]
In news we didn’t see coming, Tila Tequila has announced that she’s going to have a baby! Actually, we could sort of see that happening in an “Oops-my-bisexual-threesome-was-more-bareback-than-I-expected” kind of way, but we we really didn’t expect is for Tila to be having a baby as a surrogate for her brother and his wife. But that is exactly what the star (we use that term lightly) is doing. Tila tweeted on Sunday, “BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I am going to become a SURROGATE MOTHER for my brother & his Wife!!! That is my xmas present to them. Im pregnant!!!!”
Tila is somewhat infamous for stretching the truth, but we think this would be a pretty big thing to exaggerate – especially for her brother and sister-in-law’s sake – so we wish her family the best. We also think this would make for a better reality show than “A Shot At Love.” We would love to watch Tila and her rumored fianceé Casey Johnson take Lamaze classes together and watch the eentsy-weentsy starlet grow a big baby bump (“A Shot Of Baby Formula With Tila Tequila?”).
Maybe a pregnancy will keep Tila’s antics to a minimum for nine months. Hey, we can hope. [Photo: GettyImages]
We hope Kourtney Kardashian has been reading up her “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” because to hear her sister Khloe tell it, Kourtney has no idea what she’s in for. Khloe, on an episode of “The Rachel Ray Show” which will air today, said that she had to set her sister straight about a few pregnancy-related things, breast feeding being one of them.
“Kourtney was like, ‘I’m so excited. I don’t have to cook for five years! And I go, ‘What do you mean?’ She’s like, ‘I’m gonna breast feed.’ I go, ‘For five years?’ She has, like, no idea!”
We assume Kourtney understands the facts now. Well, we hope. Besides, that’s the kind of stuff they make awkward Discovery Channel documentaries about, not episodes of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. Khloe told Ray though that even though she used to think “Kourtney was never the type that I ever would think would ever want to have kids,” her sister has changed since becoming pregnant. Kourtney is due in late December.
Woo-hoo, Gisele Bundchen has finally developed a baby bump! After announcing her pregnancy several years (oh, all right a few months ago, but we’re impatient sorts) we’ve been excited to see her lovely bumpage, which so far has been airbrushed away into oblivion by over-eager advertisers. But the Brazilian uberbabe looked glowing, gorgeous and definitely blooming while stepping out with her flying instructor Stuart Matsumo in Boston. The genetically-blessed baby is due next month, but we can’t see any sign of the active mama slowing down just yet. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Kourtney Kardashian has joined an exclusive club in Hollywood, by being the latest high-profile victim of a burglary. The pregnant star (hey – is she pregnant? Wow, that’s been kept quiet.) was out Saturday night when thieves broke into her Calabasas home and stole around $108,000 worth of jewelery, according to People.
The break-in happened the day after her sister Kim’s birthday celebrations at Tao nightclub in Las Vegas, which Kourtney had attended, although on the night in question she’d been out for dinner locally with her babydaddy Scott Disick. Ã‚Â
We don’t think we can cope with any more dazzling news from the dazzling superhuman that is Gisele Bundchen. Not only is she a stunningly beautiful supermodel, she’s married a superfit football player. Then she gets knocked up with a sure-to-be stunningly beautiful baby and continues to look stylish and neatly pregnant while doing so. Then she is announced as a new United Nations Goodwill ambassador for the environment.
And now she’s learning to fly a bloody helicopter. No schlepping around the shops with swollen ankles and a miserable I-just-want-to-sit-down-and-eat-cake pregnancy face for Gisele! No, she’s off getting her pilots’ license and impressing the hell out of her instructor while learning to fly, of course. “She’s fantastic at flying the helicopter. She is very smooth and professional and she listens,” gushes her teacher Keith Douglass.
Grrr. Grrr. Grrr.
Six-months pregnant Kourtney Kardashian covered up her baby bump with a baggy top – even while going for a swim! – while spending time on Miami beach this weekend with her babydaddy Scott Disick. Expecting their first child together around Christmas, the couple made the most of the Labor Day weekend by having a lazy Sunday afternoon together, and looked adorable while doing so. Cuddling up on the sunloungers and messing about in the sea, these two made impending parenthood look like a beautiful Calvin Klein-style commercial. Cute. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Kourtney Kardashian was faced with a “Papa Don’t Preach” moment when she found out she was pregnant, and in the end she made up her mind to keep her baby. However, she explains in a lengthy interview with People that she seriously considered abortion and in the end, decided that wasn’t the right choice for her. Normally the Kardashians aren’t people we glean life lessons from, but we admire Kourtney’s honesty and the fact that she’s delving into territory that’s still taboo to talk about in the mainstream, especially by Hollywood celebrities.
Kardashian said that once she found out she was pregnant she, “definitely thought about it long and hard, about if I wanted to keep the baby or not, and I wasn’t thinking about adoption. I do think every woman should have the right to do what they want, but I don’t think it’s talked through enough. I can’t even tell you how many people just say, ‘Oh, get an abortion.’ Like it’s not a big deal.”
Ultimately, she realized that she had no reason not to keep the baby. “For me, all the reasons why I wouldn’t keep the baby were so selfish: It wasn’t like I was raped, it’s not like I’m 16. I’m 30 years old, I make my own money, I support myself, I can afford to have a baby. And I am with someone who I love, and have been with for a long time.”
Kourtney has another reason to celebrate these days – her show “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami” premiered to record ratings on the E! network this week. [Photo: GettyImages]
