Is it just us, or did we just wrap up the Summer of Superstar Pregnancies? It seemed like every A-lister under the sun was expecting. Despite the fact that being pregnant during the hottest months of the year is not the cutest time (you’re sweaty, sticky, exhausted…), these celeb mommies-to-be made it all look so easy! Read more…

Is Kristen Bell married to her baby daddy, Dax Shepard? How did Chris Pratt‘s baby son remember him while he was shooting Guardians of the Galaxy? What are critics saying about Benedict Cumberbatch‘s performance in The Fifth Estate?
It’s always fun to chat with Kristen Bell, the charming star of the upcoming Veronica Mars movie and — most recently — The Lifeguard, a dark drama about a 30-year-old’s early midlife crisis. In the film, her character quits her journalism job, moves home, snags a lifeguarding gig and romances a local 16-year-old boy. It’s a raw look at those life choices that are wayyyy wrong but we sometimes make anyway, shoving best interests aside for impulse and lust.
It felt funny just typing that headline. Though my love for the pint-size P.I. from Neptune High is great, it’s hard to picture her as the warm and cuddly new mom Kristen Bell has become. It’s actually going to be quite interesting to see Bell — who’s been winning our new mama hearts by tweeting pics of her breast pump and declaring she likes her extra baby weight just fine — step back into her character’s rather prickly skin in the 2014 Veronica Mars movie. That’s why we asked VM mastermind Rob Thomas how he thought she’d do as a mother.
Confession: There are times when I forget that the thing you do for a living is what other people do for fun — and then there are times when I forget I’m even working. At the Comic-Con panel for the Veronica Mars this morning, I was pretty glad no one could see my unprofessional tears (happy tears!) in the darkened Hall H as footage of the Kickstarter-funded played. I almost forgot to take notes! But I did, so here are the important things I learned:
Yesterday, every TV here at VH1 was tuned into the news about the Supreme Court’s ruling on DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) and Prop 8. It was all everyone was talking about. We heard “Same Love” by Macklemore about eight times as we walking through the building. Our Twitter feed was flooded with celebrations from our friends, as well as gay and straight celebrities — like Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.
Kristen and Dax stated a few years back when they first got engaged that they would wait to get married until same-sex couples had the same rights as heterosexual couples. That got us thinking, what other celebrities could be affected by this wonderful news? In the gallery above you’ll find the already-married and engaged couples who’ll be enjoying all the rights and rites of marriage now — as well as a few who we hope will take advantage of the ruling soon!
