In this day and age where a celebrity’s every move can be well chronicled, somehow these celebrities managed to surprise us all by popping up pregnant out of nowhere. No announcement, no save the date, just them, the red carpet, and a baby bump.
Lil Kim reigned as the Queen Bee of rap in the late 90’s. Although her career took a nosedive following a jail stint for lying under oath, the diminutive star still managed to release new music. She may not be the hottest female rapper around anymore but the Brooklyn emcee will have a new title to her name. Lil Kim popped up at an event during New York Fashion Week earlier this month with a big bun in the oven. She’s a few months into the pregnancy and her boyfriend and daddy to be Mr. Papers revealed she is having a baby boy.

Coming out to your family and loved ones certainly isn’t always an easy thing to do, but these entertainers took it once step further and told the world. Check out this list of celebrities who announced they’re gay.
In 2007, Ellen Page had a breakout role in the sleeper film Juno, starring as a high school student that was going through an unplanned pregnancy. The role earned her nominations for a Golden Globe and an Oscar. While she went on to star in the blockbuster films Inception and X-Men: The Last Stand, Page stole the show this past Valentine’s Day at the Human Rights Campaign’s “Time To Thrive” conference by announcing she’s gay. During the emotional speech, Page said she hoped her coming out would make a difference with others struggling to do the same thing.
Over the years celebrity moms have picked up a pretty bad reputation for treating their kids’ nannies poorly. If you recall, last spring two nannies came forward accusing Kim Porter of abusing them during their stints of employment caring for the twins she shares with hip hop mogul P.Diddy. Though Kim denied the allegations, Mariah Carey has no problem admitting that she can be the employer from hell when it comes to nannies.
“Unfortunately I have to have nannies but I’m very hands-on,” Mariah said during an interview with The Breakfast Club. “I fire nannies like this,” she said snapping her fingers.
She went on to say that while she hates being such a cut-throat, it’s absolutely essential because nannies like to make themselves more important than she is her in childrens’ lives.
“And I hate doing it, but I have to because if they try to make themselves more important in the baby’s mind than me,” she continued.
Mariah also touched on her plans for Valentine’s Day. Apparently, her hubby, Nick Cannon, will be away working.
“He’s not even gonna be home from what I hear now.”
We’d sure hate to be the nannies looking after little Monroe and Moroccan.

You don’t have to listen to her love songs to know Mariah Carey is a true romantic. Her whirlwind courtship with now-hubby Nick Cannon is just one example. Now she wants to give her fans a little piece of romance for Valentine’s Day–for a good cause.

It’s Mariah here…You all know that this is my favorite time of the year, and so I’ve decided to give back and raise some funds for the incredible St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a cause very close to my heart as a mom.”
The winner will be flown to New York City and taken to Carey’s home for a special performance on Valentine’s Day.The auction brought in $168,985 of a $250,000 goal.

Ice Cube has done an incredible job transitioning from rap to family entertainment. Besides Will Smith there aren’t many other rappers who can claim to have done the same successfully. Rapper Ludacris, was on hand to present him his award for his contributions to entertainment. Ice Cube is scheduled to release his next album Everything’s Corrupt later this year.
The night promises a number of memorable moments including a sentimental exchange between Motown’s Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy in which Robinson refers to their 50 year-old friendship as a “bromance”.

Our favorite “All I Want For Christmas” songstress stopped by to see Andy Cohen on last night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live.” That’s right, Mariah Carey was live and in the flesh!
No topic seemed to be off limits during their fireside chit chat: Mariah shared the real story behind her alleged offstage feud Whitney Houston, found three nice things to say about ex-fling-turned-enemy Eminem and she even called out HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” for not giving her a role on the show!
Take a look at our favorite highlights below.
On Whitney Houston:
“It’s so hard to talk about that situation still. Initially, obviously we are all inspired by other people and Whitney happened to be a star. She was born a star and she was popular prior to me having a record deal and of course we were all inspired by her singing. And then the record label wanted to sort of guide me and work with producers she had worked with. I had already had my own demo and songs I had written. I had my own identity but everybody wanted to push me that way. So understandably there was a little bit of weird tension. Yet, when we finally met…we got along so well! I would wait for the moments to be with Whitney.
On having more kids:
“I have a boy and a girl and I couldn’t ask for more… If Nick could have the babies himself then maybe. Yeah, bring ‘em on! We love the kids… Here’s the thing, I’m responsible for the kids for like forever. They didn’t ask for this lifestyle but here they are.
