Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

It’s a Hollywood Baby Boom!

Mariah Carey Finally Comes Clean

Thandie Newton answered the question that everyone wants to know about Mariah Carey right now: Is she pregnant? The British actress appeared on American chat show The View this week to talk her about her new movie For Colored Girls. Thandie was quizzed about her role, which was originally supposed to be played by Mariah, 40, who pulled out at the last minute. “I only had two days to make a decision to play it,” Thandie told the panel. “I think she is pregnant.” She said. But quickly realising her faux pas, she added, “or something major is going on in her life, so I carried the baton for her.” Mariah then confirmed the news on Access Hollywood saying “Yes, we are pregnant. This is true!” The delay in the announcement was explained when Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon did a television interview and told viewers that she had in fact miscarried two years ago.”I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious.” she also said in a statement from her publicist.

It’s Not A Sultana I Had At Lunch, It’s A Baby!

Celebrity Stylist Rachel Zoe who is credited as starting the size zero trend in Hollywood has finally put on weight and is rumoured to have achieved her dream of getting pregnant. The fashionista, 39, who has styled everyone from Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie and Demi Moore to Keira Knightly, Eva Mendes and Liv Tyler, has been married to her college boyfriend Roger Berman for 12 years. Rachel has been spotted on the party scene shunning alcohol and a source told US Weekly magazine “It’s very hush-hush. She’s telling people she can’t travel”. When hubby Roger put on his blog in August: “Rachel isn’t getting any younger and I’m starting to feel like if we don’t get on it, we’ll miss the opportunity, which would be a complete shame as I know that Rachel would make an amazing mother,” it put everyone on bump watch and when her former co-star Brad Goreski from The Rachel Zoe Project added: “We’re still close. I hope to be in the delivery room!”, the rumour mill went into full swing.

Penelope Records Her Pregnancy For Vogue

Now that Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has confirmed that she is pregnant, it has been announced that she will be posing for a Vogue magazine cover. The newly married Penelope flew back to Madrid recently for the photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Peter Lindberg. She is not the first A-lister to rejoice in their pregnancy on the cover of a magazine. Demi Moore caused controversy when she famously posed nude at seven month pregnant for Vanity Fair magazine back in 1991. Following suit were both Britney Spears for Harpers Bazaar and Claudia Schiffer for Vogue. It is not know whether Penelope will be baring all but we are sure that even if she isn’t, she will be wearing that bump loud and proud. Penelope and husband Javier Bardem are a fiercely private couple but now that she is six months pregnant, there is no hiding her growing bump. The couple are currently in London with Penelope’s sister Monica so that Penelope can finish filming Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with Johnny Depp before they return to Madrid where Penelope is expected to give birth.

Could Brangelina Be Adding To Their Brood?

The rumours have started once again that Angelina may well be pregnant with the couple’s seventh child. “They’re both absolutely glowing,” a source told Star magazine. “Brad has been strutting around like a proud peacock with a big grin on his face!” Which is a change to all the gossip that they are constantly fighting. “When Angie is pregnant, Brad treats her like gold,” the source added. The magazine highlights a picture of Angelina where the actress may have a ‘possible baby bump.’“She’s lost a bunch of weight but is a lot fuller in the boobs – and she’s got a telltale bump! That’s what happens every single time Angie is the first trimester,” the insider says. “She loves having this secret with him because it brings them so close together. “Something has completely changed between them suddenly. There’s no doubt that they always fall back in love when they’re expecting.” The couple have adopted three children, Maddox, Zahara and Pax and have three biological children, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne. So does that mean another adoption is on the cards too?
