Jana Kramer

The celebrity baby girl trend continues!  A week after announcing her pregnancy with husband Michael Caussin, country singer Jana Kramer revealed that the happy couple are seeing pink!  Writing for People’s baby blog, she wrote that the couple’s eagerness to find out the sex of their baby led to them taking a blood test at 9 weeks.  She explained, “I had my nurse call my best friend to give her the news. We then invited our closest friends over and had them fill up water guns paint of either pink of blue. Mike and I were so anxious to see what color it was going to be.”

The first time mom-to-be also revealed her struggle with morning sickness, sharing that since week 6 of her pregnancy all she has been able to eat are bagels and cereal.  She wrote in her blog, “My mother always told me to never use the word hate, BUT I HATE the word morning sickness. It’s not just in the morning.  And people who don’t understand or haven’t been pregnant only think it’s in the morning…In the end, it makes it all worth it knowing in six months I’ll be looking into her beautiful eyes.”

Jana is on tour through October; her baby girl is expected to arrive early next year.

One Tree Hill alum Jana Kramer and her husband, Washington Redskins tight end Mike Caussin, have announced that they are expecting a baby!  The couple, who married in May of 2015 after a whirlwind courtship, will welcome their first child early next year.

Kramer told People, “Being a mom will be the greatest job I’ll ever have. I feel like the luckiest girl alive to be on this journey with the love of my life.”

Kramer left the hit TV show in 2012 to pursue a career in country music. She has found success with singles like “Why Ya Wanna” and “I Got the Boy.”  Her second album is scheduled for release later this year.

According to US Weekly, Sara Foster and her husband, professional tennis player Tommy Haas, are expecting their second child.  The couple are already parents to a four-year-old daughter, Valentina.  The actress has yet to confirm her pregnancy, but did recently tweet her appreciation for Netflix’s new maternity/paternity leave program, writing: “It’s good to work for #Netflix.”

The 90210 alum recently told BuzzFeed that life after baby was a little less glamorous. “The last thing [I googled] is so unsexy and your readers will not give a s–t about this, but it was ear infections because my daughter has an ear infection.”  Her older sister, and Barely Famous co-star Erin Foster chimed in, “Sara goes to bed around 7:30 pm. That is true, because she wakes up early with her kid.”

Sara and Erin are daughters of music producer David Foster and step-siblings to models of the moment Gigi and Bella Hadid.  VH1 recently renewed the sister’s satirical reality show ‘Barely Famous’ for a second season which is set to debut in 2016.

Shawna Thompson and Keifer Thompson.

Keifer and Shawna Thompson, of the hit country duo Thomspon Square, announced that they are expecting a baby – their first! – in January.  They broke the happy news via social media, writing: “Well…we have decided not to be a duo anymore!!! #Jan2016 #T3 #WeDidIt #BabyOnBoard.”  You can view their cute photo announcement here.

Shawna experienced strange pregnancy cravings right away, Keifer told People: “She was like, ‘I think I might need to go get a test because I just ate a cantaloupe followed by a pickle chaser.'”

The couple have been married for sixteen years. Keifer said, “We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things and we just really felt there was something missing. We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”

He joked about potential baby names during the interview as well, saying: “Shawna gets to pick the name as long as it’s not something crazy like these people in Hollywood do all the time. No Moonbeam for us!”

The duo released their latest single ‘Trans Am’ earlier this spring from their upcoming album which is set for a fall release.

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson confirms he is going to be a dad!

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has finally confirmed the rumors – he is going to be a dad!  The news first broke in July that the boy band heartthrob was expecting a baby with stylist Briana Jungwirth, but Tomlinson had yet to publicly comment or confirm.

During the band’s Tuesday appearance on Good Morning America, co-host Michael Strahan asked, “Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?” Tomlinson replied, “Thank you. Obviously it’s a very exciting time. So thank you.”

Tomlinson and Jungwirth are said to be close friends, but are not currently in a relationship. A source who first spilled the beans in July said, “It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and that has brought them even closer.”

One Direction’s creator, Simon Powell, shared some advice for Tomlinson, according to The Sun newspaper. “I said to him, ‘You man up. You’re fortunate because you’re in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.’..Louis has got great family around him and, look, it’s a plus, not a negative.”

The band released a surprise single, “Drag Me Down,” last Thursday. The song shot to No.1 in 82 countries and broke a Spotify one-day streaming record.



A baby girl is on the way for Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan!

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave his followers something to “like” on Friday when he announced that he and wife Priscilla are expecting their first child together – a baby girl!

The couple shared their excitement for the latest chapter in their lives, writing: “We’ve already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people’s lives around the world…Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.”

Zuckerberg used the announcement as an opportunity to discuss the struggles they had faced on the road to parenthood, including three pregnancies that resulted in miscarriages.  The couple were inspired to share their personal losses, stating: “Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you – as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.  In today’s open and connected world, discussing these issues doesn’t distance us; it brings us together. It creates understanding and tolerance, and it gives us hope.”

The couple married in 2012 after more than a decade of dating; they met while students at Harvard.

Something must be in the water over at Law & Order: SVU! Just days after Ice-T and his wife Coco announced their pregnancy news, it was confirmed that his colleague Kelli Giddish is also expecting!  Co-star Warren Leight let the news slip on the 27th, tweeting “@FINALLEVEL and @cocosworld having a baby. @TheKelliGiddish and L Faulborn having a baby. #SVU — most fertile show on Earth. Congrats all!”

The announcement followed the news that Giddish and her long-time love Lawrence Falbourn quietly married in a private ceremony last month in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.  Paradise Beach Weddings shared that the happy couple said “I do” on the beach in front of 12 guests.  The special day was full of “rustic charm” and featured fresh flowers, burlap, and the bride in a stunning white dress with floral crown.

This will be the first child for the newlyweds. No word yet on whether Kelli’s baby bump will be written into the show; Law & Order: SVU will return for its 17th season later this year.
