Jessica Simpson: Very pregnant, sexually 'unstoppable'

Jessica Simpson on "Fashion Star"

Jessica Simpson is obviously very pregnant, and now we know she's obviously very ... affectionate as well.

"I am definitely feeling 'intimate.' I'm kind of unstoppable at the moment!," the "Fashion Star" mentor said Tuesday on Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show.

As some might recall, the 2010 movie "Unstoppable" featured a runaway freight train loaded with hazardous materials, careening toward populated areas with a promise of certain explosive disaster. It also reminds us a bit of that 2010 Playboy interview in which singer-songwriter John Mayer famously referred to sex with Simpson as "sexual napalm."

And talk about explosive — 'cause Simpson had no problem doing so. 

"Like the big 'O' is like the biggest 'O' ever," she said. Good thing fiancé Eric Johnson is "always ready."

Ah, motherhood.

When it comes to the baby girl's name, by the way, Simpson is staying mum until the little one is born. With "weeks" left in the pregnancy that has seen her naked on the cover of Elle at 170 pounds, she said she's used to it, but "over it."

"I'm ready to carry her in my arms and not my stomach."

Snooki, Jionni LaValle make it official: Pregnant and engaged

Jionni LaValle and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi

Snooki and Jionni Lavalle are engaged to be married and expecting a baby together, the "Jersey Shore" star confirmed Wednesday, and thank goodness 'cause the suspense was killing us, just killing us.

The couple found out she was pregnant right after New Year's, meaning her first thought was, "I've been drinking!" she told Us Weekly. "I was worried. It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy."

And we were going a bit crazy while we waited for Ms. Nicole Polizzi's cover story to come out.

First she stepped out Friday out in a baggy outfit, carrying a big purse, an outfit preferred by those trying to hide a baby bump. She then appeared in public Monday with an engagement-ring hunk of bling on her engagement-ring finger -- check it out via People -- after an unnamed source told the mag that she and LaValle had gotten engaged.

But by Wednesday Snooki was telling the story her way: "I have different priorities now," she told Us. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready."

Added boyfriend LaValle: "We are not going to screw this up."

Away from print, LaValle tweeted his thanks, plus apologies for the runaround: "Thank You everyone!!" he said. "Sorry about that wait but glad everyones happy!! Nicole and I are real excited!! Our baby is going to be #ShortnTan"

But that wasn't quite all from the boyfriend who doesn't often step into the spotlight.

"For All u jealous, disrespectful haters out there, u see what u wana see on tv! My fiancé and I n JR are going to be so happy! #youllgeturs."

Perhaps that last bit should have been addressed directly to Snooki's ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella, who on Monday actually took time out of his day to explain to TMZ that when he said, "I hope she has a miscarriage," he really meant that he hoped she wasn't pregnant.

Jessica Simpson boldly goes where others have gone before: naked


Jessica Simpson has posed naked on the April cover of Elle magazine, inspired by the pose made famous by Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair and a similar shot of Cindy Crawford on the cover of W.

And for when you're done staring at the "Fashion Star" mentor wearing no fashion at all, there's news as well: She and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a girl.

"I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!" Simpson told the mag. "Eric is so athletic. We're gonna have this athletic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping, 'cause all she's gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!"

(Notes to Jessica: You still have to get through the diapers and onesies first. And we probably shouldn't say anything about allowing oneself to be styled as the twin of a woman who's going through a significant life crisis.)

As Elle tells it, here's how the magazine shoot came together: "Though mom-to-be Jessica Simpson arrived at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on a crisp January morning looking quite the fashionista in a Roberto Cavalli wrapdress, Lanvin wedges, and an oversize YSL leather bag, it quickly became clear to everyone on set that Simpson’s burgeoning belly should take center stage for the principal shot." The singer-actress-fashionista was described as "enthusiastic," reportedly discussing her pregnancy cravings after "confidently posing au naturel."

There's also a version of the cover with Simpson wearing a red dress, presumably for the more skin-shy retailers.

Snooki is pregnant? Batten down the single-mom hatches!

Snooki is pregnant? Did she look preggers two weeks ago?

Snooki is pregnant?

Take some deep breaths, gentle reader, don't panic -- it'll all be over in five to six months, as Ms. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is reportedly three to four months along.

We couch that with a "reportedly," because even though the New York Post and E! News are presenting it as fact via sources, the news that Snooki is pregnant -- expected to come shortly via Us Weekly -- has yet to get the official stamp from reps or the party gal herself.

In fact, at the beginning of February, Polizzi was on "Good Morning America" firmly denying pregnancy rumors, which TMZ said was just her way of not jinxing things with a first-trimester announcement (and possibly without a deal in place to profit off the blessed news). This after dropping weight due to exercise and a reduction in drinking, E! reported.

Rumor has it that the baby daddy is boyfriend Jionni LaValle, with whom she's already looked at a big sparkly engagement ring.

We presume the liquor store that was denying admittance to new neighbor Snooki before she even moved in next door now has a little less to worry about -- though Forbes wonders how single motherhood, and the expected reduction in pint-size party power, will affect the "Jersey Shore" star's brand. If fans will accept parenting instead of partying, it could be a good thing.

As for the girls' new spinoff show, Snooki told Us Weekly: "It’s not always going to the club, drinking and partying. It’s the first time I’m going to be on my own for real. You've only seen the party side of us."

Now we'll get to see if there's a mommy side. A rep for MTV told People that filming started last week.

'Twilight' actor Jackson Rathbone and girlfriend expecting a baby

Jackson Rathbone of 'Twilight' is going to be a dad.

"Twilight" actor Jackson Rathbone and his girlfriend have a baby on the way.

The 27-year-old actor and girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi, 24, will be having the baby over the summer and "are thrilled and excited to be expecting their first child," their rep told People. Hafsadi, a burlesque dancer, is said to be five months along, according to Us Weekly.

The Singapore-born actor met Hafsadi while touring with his band 100 Monkeys.

Rathbone shot to stardom for his role as pathokinetic vampire Jasper Hale in the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson juggernaut "Twilight" films. So being a dad won't be his only responsibility this year, with the release of the final film "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" in November and roles in upcoming flicks "Zombie Hamlet" and "Cowgirls N' Angels" also on his to-do list.

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler: A baby on board that bikini bod

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are expecting a baby

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears quarterback and Kristin Cavallari's on and off and on beau, broke his thumb in November and the Bears saw their playoff hopes go up in smoke. Who cares! Cutler is going to be a father!

Cavallari, the reality TV star with the great bikini body, is having a little bitty -- or possibly very big  -- baby.  (Dad is 6-foot-3, 233 pounds.)

The couple became engaged in April. Then they became disengaged in July. Then, they became re-engaged in November.

That's right around the time that Cutler suffered that very unfortunate boo-boo in a game against the San Diego Chargers -- which the Bears won in spite of Cutler's fourth-quarter injury.  Cutler was sidelined for weeks following the injury.

They also got back together just about a month after Cavallari was eliminated after a three-week stint on "Dancing With the Stars."  As The Times reported, many fans of the dance competition were not happy that she'd been booted. Neither was Cavallari.

"It's clearly not a dance competition," she told Us Weekly at the time.

Suddenly, they both had a lot of extra time on their hands, and mutual comfort was clearly in order.

Consequently, a wedding is pending, and Cavallari will be looking for those jeans with the big stretchy panel in front. She made the baby announcement to People, saying she and Cutler were "thrilled." No word on the due date.

Beyonce and Jay-Z: Crazy baby rumors -- is the little one here?

Has Beyonce had her baby?

Plenty of folks are crazy in love with the idea of Beyonce giving birth. But what's actually going on?

Our baby bonanza begins with a blog report this week saying B and husband Jay-Z reserved more than half of the luxurious birthing suite at New York City's St. Luke's hospital for the arrival of their firstborn.

On Dec. 27, MediaTakeOut.com said that hospital staff was put on alert that "a very high profile patient was checking in ... to give birth" and it was in fact Jay and Bey.

Camps for both remained silent, but the reports snowballed -- even suggesting Beyonce has already delivered a baby girl named Tiana May Carter (Tiana is the name of Disney's first black princess, People points out). 

We wouldn't get too excited; speculation has been a central theme in the diva's pregnancy. Thanks to some lumpy shapewear, conspiracy theorists doubted she was with child at all. Those allegations were later dismissed as "ridiculous." 

As we toboggan into 2012, the Ministry has a piece of advice for those on Beyonce bump watch: Relax. Confirmation of the golden child's arrival will come in due time, no doubt followed by some terribly glamorous first-photo spread.  

In the meantime, enjoy this Beyonce countdown

Alyson Hannigan is pregnant. What a coincidence! So is Lily

Alyson Hannigan is pregnant

The last time Alyson Hannigan was pregnant, her sitcom, "How I Met Your Mother," would hide the star's belly behind (wink, wink) a basketball, say, or a globe. 

Now her character, Lily, is pregnant for the first time -- and Hannigan's representative has confirmed that the actress is pregnant for the second time. Whew! The belly can be above-board.

The actress' representative confirmed her impending and now quite obvious motherhood to Us Weekly, which shows 37-year-old Hannigan walking along, looking well-rounded. She's "thrilled," the mag quotes a source close to the star.

Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof -- both of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fame, and he of "Angel" fame -- already have 2-year-old daughter, Satyana.

Craig Thomas, executive producer and show co-creator, told the Chicago Tribune in 2009 that the writers just decided to make "an extra joke" out of Hannigan's impending tyke. "Why be subtle," he said.

This time, the pregnancy can just be incorporated into the storyline. In mid-May, "HIMYM" had Lily dealing with food poisoning, which, surprise, turned out to be the beginnings of a baby.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard expecting a second baby

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard are expecting their second baby

This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Congratulations to Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard: She is pregnant with their second baby.

On top of expecting a wee addition to the Gyllenhaal-Saarsgard gang, this means Jake Gyllenhaal soon will be an uncle twice over (We're picturing lots of goo-goo noises and stuffed animals around him too).

Maggie and Peter are already parents to 5-year-old Ramona, the teeny fashion plate they raise in -- natch -- Brooklyn. News of their pending second was first reported by People.

Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard started dating in 2002 and wed in 2009. That same year, they took their act from home to the stage, co-starring in a production of "Uncle Vanya" off-Broadway.

But back to Uncle Jake.

Caring for an infant can mean sleep deprivation for any mother, so Maggie is especially lucky to have her movie-star brother on deck: Jake is known to have a very, very calming effect.

[For the record, 7:22 a.m. Nov. 29: A previous version of his post said a 2009 production of "Uncle Vanya" was done on Broadway. It was an off-Broadway production.]
