It’s been a while since we’ve talked about celebrity uteruses, and there seem to be quite a few occupied wombs. While some are just announcing their pregnancies, Jessica Simpson shows off huge 9-months pregnant belly on the cover of Elle magazine’s April issue. She’s striking the same pose Demi Moore made famous back in 1991 on the cover of Vanity Fair.
The singer, actress and entrepreneur reveals to the mag that she is having a girl, but hopes she isn’t a tomboy because of her fiance Eric Johnson‘s love of sports. “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” You can also expect her daughter, like many a famous offspring, to not have a “normal” name. “It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know … why.”
Jessica’s ex husband Nick Lachey is going to be a new parent as well. He is expecting his first child with wife Vanessa (formerly Minnillo) Lachey. He announced the news when he co-hosted Live! With Kelly recently and talked about being excited to become a dad. “I’ve had a chance to do a lot of great things in my career and my life but this is the one thing that, more than any other, I look forward to. The fact that it’s actually here — it’s overwhelming,” he said. Vanessa is due sometime late Summer or early Fall.
Also expecting their first child is former Saved By The Bell star Elizabeth Berkley. “In life there are moments you cherish forever and this is one of them,” she tells PEOPLE. “Greg and I are so excited to be expecting our first child this summer. We couldn’t be more grateful and overjoyed.” Berkley, 39, married her husband Greg Lauren, 42, in 2003. I can’t help but think what A.C. Slater and the gang have to say about Jessie Spano having a baby!
It’s baby number 3 for Uma Thurman! The actress is expecting her third child with boyfriend Arpad Busson. She and the financier began dating in 2007, and after a split in 2009 they have been together ever since. Busson has two sons, Flynn 14, and Cy, 9, with ex-fiancee, model Elle MacPherson. Thurman has two children, daughter Maya, 13, and son Levon, 10, from her marriage to actor Ethan Hawke. We’ll be seeing Uma soon as she is set to appear in five episodes of NBC‘s Smash, and not that I’m not happy for her, but her pregnancy will further delay filming for the next installment of Quentin Tarantino‘s Kill Bill series. QT did say he wanted her to age a bit before they shot the next one. Uma can kick butt with a baby on her back, right?
