Unlike many celebrities, Alicia Keys isn’t working overtime to keep her pregnancy a secret. Instead, she shares what she feels comfortable sharing. One interesting tidbit that she recently shared about her little bundle is that he or she may be a New Year’s baby.

“It’s looking like December. They tell me December 31st. I think that’s kind of cute,” the glowing mom-to-be revealed on “The View” while promoting her new #WeAreHere initiative.

Speaking of #WeAreHere, Alicia says that motherhood is what inspired the campaign.

“Being a mother has definitely given me more of a fierceness and understanding of just what you believe in, that much more,” she explained.

Alicia first announced her pregnancy on Instagram via a sweet anniversary post dedicated to her husband, Swizz Beatz.

“Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz !!” she exclaimed. “And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many many more years of the best parts of life!”

Swizz and Alicia are already the proud parents of a son, Egypt Daoud Dean, 3. So far, the sex of the new baby has not been revealed, but we’re hoping it’s a little girl!

Well here’s some news that we definitely did not see coming. Yesterday, Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys announced that she is expecting her second child with husband, Swizz Beatz. The announcement came in the form of a very sweet Instagram message from Alicia celebrating their wedding anniversary.

“Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz,” she exclaimed. “And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many, many more years of the best parts of life!”

This will be the couple’s second child. They’re already the parents of adorable Egypt Dean, who is 3 years old. While the singer’s big announcement came as a bit of a surprise to most, she has expressed a desire to have more children in the past.

“I definitely want more kids,” Alicia told Wendy Williams in last year. “I do actually want more children and sometimes I think it does feel like, ‘Oh man, what if I could just spend every waking minute with Egypt. [I’ve] learned to really cherish those small moments and not rush so much everywhere.”

Last summer, we told you that Tank—who is currently the father of four children—expressed a desire to have six more children so that he could have ten in total.

“I want to get married and do it the right way. Do it the right way, maybe have three more and after that three. I love kids, I think the generation is what’s most important. We’ve had our chance to make our choices and they need our lives in time to influence the next generation and give them the right understanding and pour the knowledge into them so that preferably, they can make this place a better place or survive in whatever this place is going to become.”

Well, apparently he’s one step closer to his goal. The TGT singer recently announced via Instagram that he’s expecting a baby boy with on-again, off-again girlfriend, Zena Foster.

For months, media outlets (including us) have been speculating whether or not LeBron James’ wife, Savannah Brinson, is with child. To date, the couple has yet to publicly address the rumors, but it appears that Miami Heat President Pat Riley may have confirmed those reports. According to Pat, the love birds are finally having a daughter!

“Savannah now is going to have a little baby girl to join her in the fight against the two boys and LeBron, which she needs,” Pat told reporters during a post-game interview, according to Fox.

As you may recall, the high school sweethearts exchanged vows last fall during a swanky ceremony at San Diego’s Grand Del Mar Hotel. Approximately 200 guests were in attendance of the three-day affair, which concluded with Sunday brunch. The couple currently have two sons together.

Apparently, there’s always something exciting going on in the Kardashian family. It’s been less than two weeks since Kim Kardashian tied the knot in a star-studded Italian wedding, but according to Kardashian family current events, that’s already old news.

Us Weekly is reporting that Kim’s big sister, Kourtney, is pregnant with her third child by longtime boyfriend, Scott Disick.

“She is only a few months along,” said a family insider.

A guest, who spotted Kourtney, Scott, Khloe and French Montana at the Trump SoHo Hotel not too long ago adds that Kourtney was doning that expectant mother’s glow and refrained from drinking alcohol the entire night. Instead, the witness says the 35-year-old reality star chugged ginger ales during the outing.

“Kourtney looked really pretty. She had a nice flush on her cheeks.”

Another source adds that the pregnancy didn’t come as a surprise to the expectant parents. In fact, the oldest Kardashian sister has reportedly been planning to pop out baby number three for a while now.

“It was planned,”the source said.  “[Kourtney] wants to have a handful of kids.”

The new addition is expected to arrive in December.

“They don’t know the gender yet,” the source says. “They just want the baby to be healthy.”

Scott and Kourtney are already the parents of four-year-old Mason and 23-month-old Penelope.

Who’s That Girl? Guess What Former Athlete Is Having Baby!

"Dominique Dawes pf"


That’s right, former gymnast and Olympian Dominique Dawes is having a baby!

Now, how this has gone totally unnoticed for so long is actually pretty surprising because Dawes is still very active in various communities bringing about awareness for healthy living and lifestyles.

I don’t know about you but back in the day, Dominique Dawes was everything. She was the sole Black woman on the 1996 U.S. Olympics Team and represented in a major way.  There were few young black girls at that time who didn’t want to be her: graceful and talented.

Many of us saw her during 2012 Olympics giving commentary on the Fierce Five, the Women’s Gymnastics Team, and it made us wonder, “Where has she been? What’s going on with her?”  Well, no one could find out much information but as the pregnancy news has finally come to the light (she’s actually been talking about it on Twitter for months), information is trickling in little by little.

This is allegedly Dawes’ husband, Jeff Thompson:

"jeff thompson"

He is a student advisor and religion teacher at a Catholic school in Maryland.  He and Dawes have allegedly been married since May 2013 bur unfortunately, we can’t find one picture of them together. That shouldn’t come as too much of a shock because Dominique has always been private about her personal life.  But at age 37, she’s about to have her first child!

Congratulations to Domique Dawes and her husband Jeff on their little bundle of joy on the way!

Tiki Barber & Wife Traci Lyn Johnson Welcome Baby Girl!

Every time you say their names, the story behind how they got together quickly follows; but now is a happy time as Tiki Barber and Traci Lyn Johnson recently added an addition to their family with a bouncing baby girl.

Brooklyn Barber was born on Friday, presumably in New York City, according to US Weekly. This is the first child for 26 year old Johnson and the fifth for 38 year old Barber. The couple has been married since July 2012.

Tiki and Traci were notoriously in the news  in 2010 when Tiki announced that he and his then wife, Ginny, would be divorcing. Ginny was pregnant with their twins at the time and Traci, a then intern at NBC was at the center of the scandal. There were reports that he’d been cheating with Traci while still with Ginny and that’s why he left her, but both Tiki and Traci maintained that they didn’t start dating until after he was separated.

Either way, that’s water under the bridge now.

Congratulations on the new arrival!

Break Out The Cigars: Halle Berry And Olivier Martinez Welcome Their Baby Boy!

Congratulations are in order to Hollywood couple Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez! The happy couple welcomed their first child into the world this weekend!

The baby boy was born in Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night, PEOPLE has learned.  This is presumably the first child for Olivier Martinez and the second for Halle Berry. We hope big sister Nahla is excited about her new role.

Halle Berry, who married Martinez in July, said of her pregnancy back in April: “This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”

Halle, 47, has been spotted so much just hanging around the city lately (playing with her daughter, shopping, eating) and slaying like she always does that I thought there was a little more time left in the pregnancy. It seemed to have gone by pretty fast, right? Well, it may have seemed that way to us (or just me), but I’m sure Halle had gotten to the countdown point!

Congratulations to the happy family!

Last week we delivered the shocking news that America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Marcille is expecting a her first child by her musically inclined boo, Kevin McCall. During a recent interview with HipHollywood, the glowing beauty revealed that fans weren’t the only one’s surprised by her pregnancy. She and Kevin were astonished to learn they were expecting as well.

“It was a surprise to us,” the 28-year-old mom-to-be revealed.

She went on to say that she kept her pregnancy under wraps for so long because she wasn’t sure what the outcome would be.

“You keep it under wraps because you just don’t know whatever’s going to happen, you know what I mean? I think I’ve been keeping it under wraps for so long that when it hit the fan it was like, ‘AHHH!'”

The model-turned-actress also revealed that she even hid her pregnancy from her friends.

“Everybody [was shocked]. I mean, all of my friends. I haven’t told anyone, so everyone sort of found out altogether last week.”

When it comes to what kind of parent she’ll be, Eva says she’ll definitely be protective of her new bundle.

“I think I’ll definitely be overprotective. And a very fashionable mom.”

As for the daddy-to-be, Eva predicts he’ll be a loving father.

“He’ll be a doting father.”

The beautiful couple also dished on plans for the nursery, which will be rockstar-themed. Eva remained mum on the sex of the baby though. I guess we’ll have to wait a few more months for that.

Congrats to the lovely couple!
