Model Georgia Penna (née Salpa) and her husband Joe are expecting their third child.

The expectant mum announced the exciting news with an Instagram post from her rose-filled baby shower.

And the 32-year-old even shared their baby's gender! It's a girl, according to the menu labelled 'Baby Girl Penna'.

Um, that baby shower looks utterly GORGEOUS!

'Thank you so much @nicnaci for the most beautiful surprise #babyshower. Feeling so lucky to have such amazing and thoughtful friends,' she captioned the pic.

It's unclear if the Celebrity Big Brother contestant is having her daughter via surrogate like she did before with their twin sons.

Congrats to Georgia and Joe!


It looks like Christmas has come early in the Garrihy household, as Aoibhín has announced that she is expecting her first child with husband John Burke.

The 29-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a picture of herself drinking a glass of sparkling water, along with the caption, "The only bubbles I’ll be drinking this Christmas."

Adding: "Baby Burke, coming soon! #overthemoon."

Fans were quick to offer messages of congratulations with one writing: "Magic moments…..fabulous Christmas news. Congratulations to you both."

Aoibhín and John married in the luxury ceremony in the Armada Hotel Spanish Point, Clare, in September 2016. 

Congratulations to the happy couple! 



Eva Longoria Bastón is pregnant with her first child, a boy, the actress' rep confirmed to People

The 42-year-old expecting mum still has a while to go until her little bundle of joy arrives, as she is just four months along in her pregnancy.

Last October, the silver screen vixen told E! News that she would welcome motherhood, saying, "If it’s meant to be, it would be a blessing."

It seems her blessing has come! She and husband José Antonio 'Pepe' Bastón must be ecstatic.

The former Desperate Housewives star and her 49-year-old hubby married in Mexico in May 2016. 

The dad-to-be is president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company.

They certainly make a power couple!

Eva was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher and later, NBA player Tony Parker in 2011. 

"When Pepe and I met, I said I didn't ever want to get married again," the Golden Globe-nominated actress explained last year. "He said, 'Great, me neither.' And here we are!"

José, or Pepe, has two children from a previous marriage: daughter Tali, 21, and twins Jose and Mariana, 13. Eva seems to love being a stepmum, so we're sure motherhood will be a piece of cake for her.

Congratulations to Eva and José on their growing family!


So, who said dogs and babies don’t mix?

Research has found that the unlikely combo may actually be beneficial for your baby’s health!

According to a recent study conducted by The University of Alberta, babies who are born into a house with furry friends are almost twice as likely to have two useful types of gut bacteria.

The study, which looked at 746 mother and babies over 3 years, compared the health of babies who had been exposed to pets (70 per cent were dogs!) either during pregnancy or at an early age and those who had not.

The surprising results found that babies who shared their home with a pet had an abundance of Ruminococcus and Oscillospira – two types of bacteria linked to the decreased risk of obesity and childhood allergic diseases.

It is thought that the gut-friendly microbes, which live in both humans and animals, may be passed on by stroking the fur or simply being in the same environment.

The findings are so significant that we may even see a supplement, or 'dog-in-a-pill', containing these microbes in the not-so-distant future.

Anna Kozyrskyj, researcher and paediatric epidemiologist explained: “It’s not far-fetched that the pharmaceutical industry will try to create a supplement of these microbiomes, much like was done with probiotics.”

So, there you have it, babies and dogs can live in harmony after all! 


The persistent pregnancy rumours surrounding Cheryl and Liam Payne reached new heights this week as fans became convinced that the singer is expecting twins.

While filming an upcoming episode of Who Do You Think You Are? with the BBC, 33-year-old Cheryl learned that there is a history of multiple births in her family.

News that the star’s great-great-great grandfather fathered twins sparked speculation that Cheryl herself could be expecting two babies rather than one.

Yesterday, the X Factor judge’s 23-year-old beau shared a cryptic image on Instagram which appeared to be warning people away from his private life.

The One Direction star dressed the cartoonish post with the message “stay in your lane”.

Despite the ongoing conversation surrounding Cheryl’s changing figure, the couple have yet to confirm that they are expecting their first child. 


She left The Only Way Is Essex earlier this year to spend more time with her two-year-old daughter and now Billie Faiers has announced that she is expecting her second child.

Taking to Instagram to share the good news, the 26-year-old reality star shared an adorable family photo in which little Nellie can be seen pointing to her mum’s belly while in the arms of her father Greg Shepard.

The post is captioned “And then there were four” and has received over 60,000 likes in the hour since it was shared.

According to the Mail Online, a rep for the model has already confirmed the news by saying: “They are all extremely happy.”




They say when you’re ready for a baby you just know. But, we’re not too sure. Surely there's a list to tick off so we know we're not making a major decision based on our hormone fluctuations?

Granted, babies are ridiculously cute and their heads happen to smell like magic and happiness, but this is precisely what hoodwinks us into thinking we’re ready, when we’re actually not.  

So if you’re wondering if you’re ready or not to become a baby mama, try out these nine sure-fire signs for size:

1. You’re ready to sacrifice your life for another human

Oh sure, it sounds dramatic, but if you’re looking after a kid, you can’t even go to the bog alone. Yep, as soon as you have a baby you’re suddenly the loyal slave of a pooing, dribbling little overlord. So in the words made immortal by “Maniac 2000”, are you ready?

2. You don’t care about giving up spontaneous nights out

The rigmarole of getting a babysitter – not to mention attempting leaving your child without having an emotional meltdown – seriously scuppers any impromptu nights on the town. Instead, a night hitting the pub is akin to a military sting operation, involving blueprints, complicated strategies and a field plan.

3.  You REALLY want a baby, but you’re worried you won’t be able for it

You know what, asking yourself this question shows maturity, so A+ for you. Most mams worry they’ll be shite parents anyway; it’s normal. And think about this, if the hilarious walking disaster that is Bridget Jones can handle becoming a mammy, so can you. (Yes, Bridget is back and she’s up the duff!) This is the woman that made blue soup for Lord’s sake.


4. One Born Every Minute fills you with wonderment and joy (instead of terror)

If a soothing night in front of the telly for you is listening to the harrowing screams of women as they push human beings out of their hoo-has, chances are you’re good to go.

5. You’re cool with spending money on ‘baby stuff’ and not ‘you stuff’

If you’re not absolutely horrified by the prospect of eschewing a new pair of heels for a Bugaboo, then go forth dear friend and conceive, with our many blessings.

6. Your gaff is suitable for a baby

We hate to wreck the buzz, but there are practicalities to caring for a baby. So if you’re sharing a party house with six students and a mysterious man in his 50s called Maurizio, chances are you’re not ready to start planning for a kid.

7. You’re a responsible, functioning member of society

If you’ve answered yes to this, what’s your secret? We joke, we joke. First things first, if the word ‘responsible’ makes you feel queasy, you’re probably not that responsible. Secondly, if you beg your Mam to fill out your forms because you’re “not able for it” we’re going to suggest holding off on the old fertilisation.

8. You’ve had your baby names picked out since you were 12

If you’ve been dreaming about meeting Arabella, Jaxon and Honeyflower for as long as you can remember, you’re probably ready by now.

9. You just want one goddammit

Because sometimes you DO just know. Go for it girl!

Jamie Dornan and his wife Amelia Warner are expanding their family! 

The Fifty Shades of Grey star and the English actress are expecting their second child together, People magazine confirms. The couple, who wed in 2013, are also parents to daughter Dulcie. 

The 33-year-old Northern Irish actor and Amelia, also 33, were spotted on Friday in London, where the two walked arm-in-arm. Speculation that Amelia was expecting went into overdrive as some noted that she showed noticeable signs of a baby bump. 

It should come as no surprise that the famously private couple are keen to keep Amelia’s pregnancy out of the spotlight. A representative for Jamie did not confirm the birth of their first child until nearly a month after Dulcie was born "at the end of November."

The two did not reveal any further information,  but the actress was believed to have given birth in Vancouver, where Jamie was on location filming the first in the Fifty Shades film series. 

The Fall star had previously spoken to British Vogue about how much he was loving fatherhood. He described it as “the best thing that ever happened to him.”

“I love fatherhood. These last couple of years have been quite something. But we’re enjoying it.. It’s an extremely joyful situation. I know it’s my most important role in life.” 

Meanwhile, Universal have recently announced two Fifty Shades sequels, confirming that the second film, Fifty Shades Darker, will be released in 2017. Fifty Shades Freed, the third instalment in the franchise, is expected to be released in 2018.



It has been reported that Keira Knightley is expecting her first child!

The news was reported in Star magazine and is yet to be confirmed by the actress herself, but it has been said she is about 12 weeks into her pregnancy.

The Imitation Game actress married Klaxons’ James Righton in May 2013 in the South of France.

Keira attended the premiere of her recent movie with co-star Benedict Cumberbatch, and although the actress is not yet showing, it has been alleged she is putting together looks with her stylist that won’t give anything away.

A source told the publication that the couple are delighted with their exciting baby news: “Keira and James are thrilled. This wasn’t planned but that is how they wanted it.”

Congratulations to the happy couple – such exciting news!
