This post serves as a very important reminder that Snooki’s (maybe) pregnancy isn’t the only bun in the oven in celebrity land. Joining the mom club is Elizabeth Berkley who has just announced that she is pregnant with her first child. The 39-year-old actress is married to artist Greg Lauren and is super excited about her baby, saying, “In life there are moments you cherish forever and this is one of them. We are so excited to share this moment and special news! The baby is due this summer.” And yes, her bump is already bumpin’. The last couple of photographs we saw of Berkley — we’re talking from the latter half of February — she always had some sort of long scarf action going on. We thought it was some sort of fashion statement, but now we know the real reason! She was just playing hide-the-baby-bump. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Snooki must have heard our eyes rolling back in our heads earlier today at her most recent engagement rumors, because the girl went ahead and busted out the ring. Bam! While walking her dog with JWoww in Jersey City, the Jersey Shore star took the opportunity to reveal a very official looking rock. Despite the evidence, Shnooks still hasn’t confirmed her betrothal to boyfriend Jionni LaValle quite yet, a move we think is sort of odd. You’d think she’d be literally peeing her pants with excitement, not gently brushing the hair off her face for the paparazzi. When has this woman ever held back anything? We were not joking about the “peeing her pants” thing!
Speaking of playing it coy (a sentence we never thought we’d type in conjuncture with the name “Snooki”), the reality star might think she’s leaving the world hanging about her possible pregnancy, but she flat out denied being with child to Janell Snowden‘s face at the Grammy’s last month. “I definitely want kids in the future,” Shnooks claimed. “But I’m not pregnant right now.” Hmm, if only there was such an easy way to confirm Snooki’s pregnancy rumors as slipping on a piece of jewelry. Maybe she could get a t-shirt screen-printed with the sonogram? It would be more convenient for us, that’s for sure. Plus you know we would buy one…

Forgive us if we take this latest Snooki news (and my god, the headlines are relentless these days) with a grain of salt: People reports that “a source” has confirmed that Snooki and boyfriend Jionni LaValle are not only expecting their first child, but also getting married. If so, then congrats, of course.
In our heads, we’ve concocted an alternate view of this rumor: Jionni and Snooks concocted it themselves, just to get their families off their backs about having a baby out of wedlock. That’s how we’d do it, anyway. And then take our time about making the actual decision to get hitched or not. Call us cynical and/or romantic. The couple did break up for a time last year, so it’s not the best idea to rush into this. (Best ideas are what Snooki is really good at.) Read more…
While Jessica Simpson appears to be in her 20th month of pregnancy, her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, has caught up to her in the baby-making race: He announced while guest-hosting Live With Kelly this morning that wife Vanessa Minnillo is pregnant with their first child.
“She started to feel a little different, not herself so she went to the store, got a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. So we are having a baby!” Nick said of Vanessa, whom he married last July. “I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to. The fact that it’s actually here, it’s overwhelming.”
According to Us Weekly, 30-year-old Minnillo, the host of Wipeout these days, is 12 weeks along. Some pics taken of her last weekend in Mexico appear to show her with a tiny baby bump — or as we like to call it, a normal-person’s stomach. We wonder if Baby Lachey and Simpson’s Baby Johnson will one day be friends?

This is just the WORST. Snooki‘s ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella has much to say, about the reports that Snooki is pregnant. That’s what the rumor mill is churning, anyway. He ran his mouth off with TMZ, saying, “I hope for her sake … not to be rude or anything … but I hope she has a miscarriage.” How is that NOT rude?
Emilio is of the opinion that Snooki will probably end up a good mother sometime in the distant future, but currently doesn’t know the first thing about being a parent. She apparently wanted kids with him too, he revealed, saying, “When I was with her, she said she wanted twins. She would always say, ‘Let’s have twins.'” He carries on dissing Snooki by talking about the possible baby’s dad, adding, “I would def recommend her to get pregnancy test to see who the father is because I’m sure there are other subjects. Vinny could easily be the father.” Emilio, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it. We’re not sure that Snooki will make a genius parent, but what do we know? Besides, we’d never wish a miscarriage on anyone.

So, we’re still not hearing anything official about whether or not Snooki is pregnant, but TMZ claims to have one more small tip-off that she’s got a tiny ciabatta roll in the oven. No, not a sudden shortage of pickles in the Tri-state area. But Jersey City store Bambi Baby reportedly told the site that Jersey Shore production company 495 Productions asked them “within the last few weeks” for permission to shoot in their store, presumably for Snooki and JWoww’s upcoming spinoff. After some initial hesitation, the owner agreed, TMZ reports.
OK, we’re still not calling this proof. Snooki and JWoww have been photographed all over Jersey City buying furniture for their new apartment. We especially like the zebra-print armchair we saw delivered to their home the other day. So maybe Snooki will be seen wandering into the store, contemplating whether she could save some cash by buying child-size beds? Interestingly, Bambi Baby’s furniture collection, at least online, seems a little too traditional for the guidette’s taste. But you never know, motherhood changes people.

So, the New York Post is reporting that Snooki is indeed pregnant after all, but has been hiding it because “MTV went into crisis mode after they found out. … They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show.”
Now, although we are part of the MTV family, we have no inside knowledge of this situation (sorry). But we do think that it would be pretty damn silly for producers to be worried that a baby would cramp Snooki’s style. We can’t think of a better way to spice up the Jersey Shore or her spinoff with JWoww. As Hollywood well knows, pregnancy is HI-larious. And watching Snooki pout while everyone else around her gets to party would make for great viewing too.
Come to think of it, we think Mama Snooks could have easily been toting around a mini-mini-me all throughout the storied history of Jersey Shore and they wouldn’t have lost a second of entertainment. See for yourself.
We know that Uma Thurman isn’t just a carbon copy of the vengeful mom she played in Kill Bill. We’re just saying if she’s even 1/16 as protective as Beatrix Kiddo, the actress’s new bundle of joy is in safe hands. Safe yet deadly hands.
People confirmed today that the Bel Ami actress is expecting her third child; Baby Thurman will join tween siblings Maya and Levon from Thurman’s marriage to Ethan Hawke, which ended in 2004. Ethan also happened to welcome his own baby girl Indiana Hawke with wife Ryan this past August, though we can’t imagine his infant will be nearly as handy with a katana. Uma’s new baby will be her first with financier boyfriend Arpad Busson, who better be up for midnight diaper duty unless he wants to experience the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. The choice is his to make, really.

Drew Barrymore always struck us at the celebrity who would make the most fun mom, and with any luck, we’re about to find out if we’re right! Allegedly! TMZ snapped a shot of the Barrymore and her fiance Will Kopelman leaving a doctor’s office last week; clutched in the Big Miracle actress’s hand is what appears to be a sonogram. Drew’s publicist had no comment when asked about the contents of Barrymore’s womb, but the fact her rep’s comment wasn’t just “No! Are you kidding me? No! What?” gives us a little hope!
“Drew is so motherly,” a source told People last month. “Will would like to be a dad. Family is so important to him.” While, of course, there could be another medical reason for Drew to have a sonogram, the fact that she carried it so openly in public makes us think it’s related to some happy baby time news, rather than, say, a bowel obstruction. On a related note, may we never have to have type the words “Drew Barrymore” and “bowel obstruction” in the same post again. Amen.

Molly Sims is known in part for looking really, really, ridiculously good in a bikini, but there’s only so many times you can rock a set of chiseled abs without wanting to mix it up. Say hello to Molly’s newest accessory! “I bought the belly ball right here,” the Sports Illustrated model and Yes Man actress laughed of her latest adornment. “He’s here. She’s here. We don’t know! Can you guess?”
It’s not just producer husband Scott Stuber, however, who can’t tear himself a way from Molly’s midsection; perfect strangers feel more than comfortable manhandling her bump. “It’s a little weird, I’m not going to lie,” Sims laughs. “But people mean well by it, and also I think it gives good energy.” An accessory that makes you look as good as Sims and makes you okay with people pawing at your stomach? Put our names on the waiting list immediately.
