“I love knowing that I get to wake up next to you for the rest of my life,” she addressed Ross, 31, who is the son of music legend Diana Ross. “Thanks for giving me the best love.”

It’s impossible to tell whom the new baby will take after more at this point, but considering the very different personalities of Simpson Ross’ two kids, it will definitely be a surprise.

“She’s definitely different than Bronx,” she told PEOPLE of Jagger in December 2016. “Bronx was an easy sleeper. She’s like, ‘Nuh uh, Mama. I want to stay up and stay up next to you!’ ”

But that “little bit of toughness” is something Simpson Ross cherishes deeply about her daughter. “I think it’s good for a girl,” she said of Jagger’s outgoing nature. “I’m excited.”

The Good Wife’s Jess Weixler Announces She’s Expecting a Baby with Husband Hamish Brocklebank

There’s a baby on the way for Jess Weixler and her husband Hamish Brocklebank!

On Monday, the 37-year-old actress announced she’s expecting her first child in a very relatable — and funny — way.

“Just had some pizza ❤🌱(6 months),” Weixler captioned an Instagram post, joking that her baby bump is really just a food baby.

In the shot, The Good Wife star, dressed in all black, can be seen cradling her pregnant belly in a field full of apple trees.

A rep for Weixler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Weixler and Brocklebank, a British businessman, got married in 2015 during a stunning ceremony on the beach.

For the nuptials, Weixler wore an off-white, Grecian-style tulle gown and wore her hair in waves.

Rather than going the traditional route, Brocklebank wore a coral colored suit with a white shirt and a black tie.

Both opted to go barefoot for the sandy festivities.

“A lot of love on that beach,” Weixler captioned a photo from their wedding day.

Chris Stapleton Announces Wife Morgane Is Pregnant Just 7 Months After Delivering Twins

Baby makes five for Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane!

Just seven months after the couple welcomed twin boys, the father of four announced that he and his wife are expecting their fifth child during his concert on Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

“Some of you may know that we have four children,” the musician said, according to a video published by The Blast. “We just had twins, about seven months ago. Now there’s four for us, but we’re gonna make it five!”

A rep for Stapleton had no comment on the news.

On Saturday, Stapleton — who is nominated five times at the CMA Awards on Nov. 14 — posted a series of photos from the concert on Instagram but did not address his special announcement.

Chris and Morgane, who wed in 2007, are already parents to three sons and one daughter but have chosen not to publicly reveal their names.

This isn’t the first time that Chris has announced his baby news during a concert. Last year, the country singer shared that his wife was expecting twins during a performance in Dallas at Starplex Pavillion.

“She’s the mother of my two kids, and she’s about to be the mother of two more,” he said.

Morgane also shared the news of their little ones on the way in an Instagram post marking the spouses’ tenth wedding anniversary.

“14 years, 2 babies, & 2 more on the way. Happy 10 year anniversary babe! You make my whole world go round,” the expectant mother captioned a black-and-white portrait of the couple.

After the boys were born in April, Chris gave Reba McEntire the honors of announcing their arrival when he won album of the year at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards, which he was unable to attend.

“Those little rascals came a little bit early,” McEntire said, adding that Stapleton and his wife were home in Nashville with their new babies. “Hot off the press! … Twin boys.”

Chris later wrote on Instagram, “Thank you for sharing our good news @Reba! We couldn’t have dreamed up a better day. Morgane & the boys are doing great & we appreciate everyone’s support!”

A day after the public announcement, Morgane shared a sweet black-and-white photo to Instagram of her newest additions, who arrived more than a month early, and thanked the hospital staff for taking care of their boys.

“Thank you for all the love! We’re so grateful to finally be home with our sweet family. We would like to say a special thank you to all the incredible nurses & doctors at Centennial Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Nashville,” she wrote.

“At more than a month early, we had a week-long stay in the NICU & the incredible people there kept our boys healthy & happy,” she continued. “Words cannot express our gratitude for you all & what you did for our family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!”

Claire Holt Is Pregnant After Heartbreaking Miscarriage: ‘You Never Forget the Deep Pain of Loss’

Months after suffering a miscarriage, Claire Holt announced on Instagram Thursday that she’s expecting.

“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude,” Holt, 33, captioned a photo, which shows her cradling her baby bump alongside her husband Andrew Joblon.

Reflecting on her miscarriage, The Originals actress said, “You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences.”

“Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today.”

My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude. You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today. I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

“I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world.”

“I know these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support— I can’t wait to share this journey with you,” Holt added.

In March, The Originals star opened up about her miscarriage explaining it left her feeling depressed and hopeless.

“I’ve never felt more broken in my life,” Holt captioned a photo of herself taken from a hospital bed after having a Dilation and Curettage procedure, which is a surgical procedure commonly performed after miscarriages.

View this post on Instagram

I took this photo 10 days ago, as I waited for surgery after my sweet little baby lost its heartbeat. I sent it to my fiancé in the waiting room to show him that I was ok. I wasn’t. I’ve never felt more broken in my life. I debated sharing this so soon and I’m still frightened about making such a private struggle public, but I’m doing it anyway because it's important. After my D & C, I spent hours on the internet searching for women who had been through it. I was desperate to find someone, anyone, who could relate to what I was feeling. Someone to tell me that the depression and hopelessness were normal. That it wasn’t my fault. That I wasn’t broken forever. I found a community of women who shared my exact experience. Who were open and vulnerable about miscarriage, something that isn’t often or openly discussed. It breaks my heart to think that losing a baby feels like something we have to keep to ourselves. Why is it any different than the death of a loved one? How is it any less meaningful? Here is what I have learned as I begin to crawl out of the dark hole: support is everything. I could not have survived this without the unconditional love of my partner. Despite his pain, he was my rock and my safety net. I will never know how to thank him. I also found that opening up to people is crucial. As soon as I told my story, almost everyone I spoke to told me theirs – their own, their wife’s, their sister’s. So many people go through it and understand the breadth of pain, yet so few people talk about it. Finally, I want to share a blog post that resonated with every part of me. You can find the link in my bio, @leandramcohen of @manrepeller articulates the emotional rollercoaster with an eloquence that I could never possess. To anyone out there who has been through a miscarriage, I understand you. I share every bit of your pain and you are not alone. Please be kind to yourself and I hope that you will be comfortable sharing your story too.

RELATED: Why Newlywed Richard Gere Is a “Much Happier” Man at 68

Gere and Silva had known each other for over a decade before they first began dating in 2014. In April, a source close to the couple told PEOPLE they married “weeks and weeks ago” and are “extraordinarily happy.”

“They’re so comfortable with each other, have fun together and are looking forward to their future together,” the insider revealed of Gere and Silva.

According to Spanish outlet HOLA!, who were the first to report the marriage news, the two wed in early April in a civil ceremony and planned to celebrate the nuptials at a party in New York City in early May with family and friends.

The resulting fête — held at Gere’s estate in Pound Ridge, New York — included several Tibetan monks (Gere is a Buddhist and one of son Homer’s middle names, Jigme, is a Tibetan name).

After news of their marriage broke, a film source who has known Gere for years told PEOPLE he “has been much happier in this half of his life because he is settled, confident and doing what he likes.”

“Practicing Buddhism and doing humanitarian work have fulfilled and transformed him, and he is at a stage when he can make the kinds of films that he likes,” the insider added of the Chicago star.

This is Gere’s third marriage. He first tied the knot with supermodel Cindy Crawford, to whom he was married from 1991 to 1995. The actor later welcomed his only son with second wife Lowell, whom he wed in 2002 before a contentious divorce that was finalized in 2016 after they separated in 2013.

The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris Opens Up About Her ‘Rough’ Pregnancy with Baby No. 2

She’s weeks away from giving birth to her second baby, and first daughter, and Jillian Harris is more than ready to meet her little girl.

“This has been a rough pregnancy,” Harris, 38, admits. “The first trimester I was so physically ill and tired. Now I’m just exhausted. But I’m hanging in there!”

Harris, who is engaged to Justin Pasutto, with whom she shares 2-year-old son Leo, says she was shocked to find out that she was having a girl.

“I secretly wanted a girl, but I was expecting to have another boy,” says the Bachelorette alum. “I’m so excited to have one of each!”

As far as Leo, “He says ‘baby’ when he looks at my tummy, but I don’t think he really understands that it’s going to be another addition to the tribe,” says Harris. “He is a little bit territorial, so it will be interesting. He’s in the clingy mommy phase!”

For now, Harris, who has partnered with Saje Natural Wellness and designed her own diffuser, credits the wellness line, which also carries essential oils, sprays and rollers, for helping assuage her anxiety and pregnancy-related insomnia.

“I feel like I needed to take better care of my nervous system and myself,” she says. “I wanted to explore more natural options. I started using Saje’s rollers and mists and realized I needed to incorporate them into my life!”

And life is about to get a lot busier.

Says Harris, “I grew up as an only child, so I’m excited for Leo to have a companion. I’m happy our family will be a little foursome!”

AGT’s Fan Favorite Couple Us the Duo Dedicates Emotional Song to Their Baby Girl on the Way

Us the Duo broke down in tears over becoming parents to their baby girl on the way.

On Tuesday’s quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent, the singing duo, who wed in 2012, dedicated an original song to their first child, who is due in October.

“Hearing the heartbeat for the first time, oh my gosh, as musician’s we get to hear so many beautiful sounds but by far that is my favorite sound that I’ve ever heard,” Carissa Alvarado said as she and husband Michael wiped tears from their eyes during an ultrasound appointment that aired before their stage performance.

“Having a baby come into this world changes the way I think about things,” Michael said. “Being a musician definitely has ups and downs financially, you never know when a paycheck is going to come.”

Carissa, who is currently 7½ months along, added, “That’s why America’s Got Talent is so important to us. This baby is coming whether we are stable or not.”


The parents-to-be wrote the song “Like I Did with You” specifically for their new addition.

“Tonight we are singing a song about our baby. The song talks about me wanting the baby to be just like her because I know as soon as I hold the baby in my arms and I’m going to look into her eyes and fall in love with her just like I did with her mama,” Michael said.

And the judges were equally emotional, as Heidi Klum and Mel B applauded the pair.

“The cutest couple, so sweet and loving,” Klum said as the Spice Girl added, “I loved that you wrote the song to your baby, I’m emotional.”

Us the Duo first announced their baby news in April on their popular YouTube channel. And in an AGT episode that aired in July, before they moved on to the live rounds, Carissa and Michael revealed that they were expecting.

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays (8 p.m. ET) on NBC.

And it’s likely the actor is ready to have a newborn around again.

“Since Charlie has come into my life, I love Coco more than ever,” he told PEOPLE in 2014 when his son was an infant. “Having a son has brought back memories and made me realize how much I miss enjoying her as a baby.”

The baby news comes a month after Arquette’s sister Alexis Arquette passed away from complications related to AIDS.

Looks like seven is Kelsey Grammer‘s lucky number!

The former Frasier star and his wife Kayte are expecting their third child together, his daughter Greer told PEOPLE at the Storks premiere in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday.

When asked if she was excited to have another sibling on the way, Greer said, “Yes! Yeah, yeah. I’m super excited. I think my dad and Kayte are the best parents and they love having little kids and they want a huge family, so I think it’s just really exciting.”

The couple welcomed son Kelsey Gabriel Elias in July 2014. Their daughter Faith Evangeline Elisa is 4, while Grammer has four children from previous relationships: daughters Spencer, 32, Greer, 24, and Mason Olivia, 14, as well as son Jude Gordon, 12.

The pregnancy news doesn’t come as a surprise because though six may seem like a full house for some, Grammer wasn’t necessarily done.

“I can’t imagine not trying for more because it’s been incredible,” the Partners actor told PEOPLE in 2014 shortly following Gabriel’s birth. “As soon as [he] came out, Kayte and I were going, ‘Yeah, let’s do another one.’

“It’s just this overwhelming gratification of being close to life like this,” he added. “It just gives you such hope and joy. I’ve never felt more alive or more serenely happy than in the throes of life with these young people. I really enjoy it.”

And Greer has previously talked about her excitement about getting more siblings. A couple of months before Gabriel’s birth, his big sister told PEOPLE their dad — who is also a grandfather of one — couldn’t be more suited for a big brood.

“My dad loves babies,” she said. “He loves having children and he’s always wanted a really big family, so he’s just really excited to have a new little life in the family.

“It gets hard for other people [to keep track of his children],” added Greer, who is Grammer’s only child with Barrie Buckner. “People get confused with how the relations work. There’s going to be so many of us. It’s funny.”

The couple say they’ve narrowed their name list down to seven possibilities, and found out the sex of their baby via a gender-reveal cake.

But Altman wanted to know so badly before the cake cutting that he offered $5,000 to his assistant to spill the beans.

“No one would tell me, she said no,” he confesses.

The couple seem prepped and ready for the challenges parenthood will bring, as Bilyeu Altman told Reality Tea in 2015 that the twosome had been through ups and downs, but have come out stronger than ever.

“That was a really, really emotional time for me,” she said candidly of deciding to push their wedding from 2014 to 2016. “There was just so much going on and it was really chaotic. I almost went through with the wedding and I feel like if I would have, Josh and I might not be together. Or our relationship wouldn’t be where it is now.”

Million Dollar Listing season 9 premieres Thursday, Oct. 6, at 9 p.m. EST, on Bravo.

The Star Wars alum — who met Millepied, 39, on the set of her 2009 thriller hit Black Swan recently penned a piece for The New York Times’ T Magazine, in which she describes her private life centered around her roles as both a wife and mom.

“When I’m not working, I’m pretty much exclusively with my family, so my rituals have to do with school, meal preparation, playdates, bedtime,” she wrote.

“[Parenthood] made me much calmer under stress, because there’s that weird parent thing you develop, that when things get really bad, your voice gets calm and your blood pressure slows, and you can make everything okay again.”

The actress and Harvard grad touched on the lessons she has learned along the way since welcoming her first child — specifically that “time goes exponentially fast as a parent.”

“I hate saying it, cause ugh, we hated it so much when people said it to us,” she added. “They always said it, and now we say it, and it’s awful, and we’re old. But it’s also true.”

The happy couple shared the news on Twitter, in a photo that showed them each reading copies of What to Expect When You’re Expecting

“Doing a little research with @impbrown,” she wrote. “Coming this winter… #BabyGirlBrown.”

The joyful news comes almost a year after the Nashville alum penned an op-ed for The Huffington Post about her miscarriage. Despite being a common occurrence for women, Benanti called the tragedy “the Voldemort of women’s health issues,” because it often goes unspoken about.

“The ‘M’ that must not be named,” she explained.

In the piece, she describes the feeling of learning she and Brown were expecting for the first time.

“The day I found out I was pregnant was the happiest day of my life,” she wrote. “I had wanted to be a mom for a long time, and at 36 it was finally happening. When my fiancé, Patrick, and I first saw and heard our little peanut’s heartbeat, a wave of love washed over me that I had not known was possible.”

“I felt like I was experiencing a miracle,” she continued. “I went home after our doctor’s appointment with the sweet rhythm of that heartbeat on a magical loop in my mind.”

Benanti was most recently seen in the 2016 revival of Roundabout Theatre Company’s She Loves Me, for which she earned her fifth Tony nomination. Her single “I Like Musicals” is out now, with all of the proceeds going to Save the Music, which is committed to keeping music education in schools.

The pregnancy was unplanned, Sims says, and jokes it’s the result of “what happens when I go visit my husband on the movie set.” She adds, “Being 43 is a little worrisome, cause I’m like ‘Okay, you are going to be 90!’ But then Mick Jagger [is having a baby at 72] so we’re like okay, we feel good about ourselves.”
