Aside from Charlie, Arquette is also dad to 12-year-old daughter Coco from his previous marriage to Courteney Cox.

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 real estate agents tied the knot in a fairytale wedding in April of this year, amidst an Aspen, Colorado, backdrop.

Their daughter will be the first child for the couple, but will join the couple’s three rescue dogs.

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.

Instagram Photo

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.

Fans of One Tree Hill — whose cast recently reunited for a night of fun — will recognize Harris Ackles, 37, from her role as Rachel Gatina. She is also known for her 2004 role as Shannon McBain on One Life to Live.

Ackles, 38, is easily recognizable as Dean Winchester from Supernatural, on which he has starred since its inception in 2005.

In August 2015, the actor took to Twitter to share his reasoning behind joining Instagram shortly after posting an adorable photo of himself and JJ.

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.”

It hasn’t been all smooth sailing so far, though.

“I have never had more morning sickness in my life — I have been sick from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed,” Sims admits. “I have thrown up in the Bristol Farms parking lot and I have thrown up outside of a restaurant. It’s just bad!”

Sims is also launching her own lifestyle YouTube channel on Aug. 16, where viewers will be able to follow along on her journey to becoming a family of five.

Explains Sims, “It’s just a peek into my life — like what kind of kid food do I eat, family meals, DIY stuff … It’s everything from food and fashion to beauty.”

“Moms still wanna be cool – even at 43 – and because I have the in with stylists, it’s a good way for people to have access to that through my channel,” adds Sims. “I really love it because it’s the life I’m living.”

In April, the former Lakers star ended his iconic 20-year basketball career, scoring 60 points in his final game. “Mamba out!” Bryant said during his speech after playing at Staples Center for the very last time.

The father-to-be has been heavily involved in his daughters’ sports activities. Big sister Natalia plays soccer while Gianna has inherited her dad’s basketball skills. “We were shooting not too long ago and she was shooting one-dribble pullups,” Bryant told ESPN. “I asked her where does she get that from? She said, ‘From watching you.’ I didn’t know she was paying attention that much,” the proud dad continued. “I watch her play and she has the same mannerisms. She’ll sit there and bite her jersey and all this other stuff. That’s a beautiful thing.”

Married at First Sight‘s Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner Expecting First Child

First comes marriage, then comes love, then comes the baby in the baby carriage!

Doug Hehner and Jamie Otis from season one of FYI’s hit series Married at First Sight are expecting their first child in December, the couple tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“We can’t wait to start this new chapter of our lives,” says Otis, 30, who was also a contestant on Ben Flajnik‘s season of The Bachelor and recently released her new memoir Wifey 101: Everything I Got Wrong After Finding Mr. Right. “Being a mom has been my dream.”

Adds Hehner, 35: “It feels like we’re just now truly starting our lives together. It’s the icing on the cake for us to be starting our family and we’re absolutely over the moon.”

The couple met for the first time on their wedding day, and have had the ups and downs of their marriage documented on their spin-off show, Married at First Sight: The First Year (produced by Kinetic Content), over the last two years. And though they have faced challenges, they finally found a common ground where having a baby is concerned.

“We certainly worked on the relationship, and I think when you’re in the trenches and you make it out together, you become stronger as a couple,” Hehner said on the Today show Tuesday.

Otis — who is four months pregnant as of Tuesday — jokes that she is wearing the “skinniest, tightest dress” because “you can barely tell there’s a baby in there!”

“It’s like a trick question,” adds Hehner. “She goes, ‘Do I look pregnant?’ I don’t know how to answer that! Do I say yes, or … ?”

The mom-to-be also added that her husband wanted to finish crossing off items on a “pre-baby bucket list” before starting a family, which she told the Today hosts she thought was smart. And after a skydiving trip last season, Hehner finally told Otis he was ready for children.

“In a way, it’ll be just like our marriage: Parents at First Sight,” jokes Hehner to PEOPLE. “We can’t wait to lay eyes on this little miracle of ours!”

Adds Otis, “We couldn’t be happier.”

Blac Chyna Displays Growing Bump in Form-Fitting Baby Blue Dress

Could Blac Chyna be hinting that she’s having a baby boy? She has yet to unveil the sex of her child with fiancé Rob Kardashian but if wearing blue was any indication, fans could be delighted to learn a Kardashian heir is coming soon.

The mother-to-be was glowing in a baby blue dress in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Chyna, 28, showed off her growing baby bump in the form-fitting knee-length outfit which she paired with comfortable flats and diamond accessories, including her 7-carat engagement ring.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star popped the question in April – just 10 weeks after they took their relationship public. And in May, Chyna and Kardashian, 29, announced they were expecting a baby. This is the first child for Kardashian and the second for Chyna, who shares 3-year old son King Cairo with TygaKardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner‘s on-again boyfriend.

The only thing shining brighter than Chyna’s massive diamond rock was her beaming smile. Just the night before, she and Rob bonded with his sisters at Khloé Kardashian‘s 32nd birthday. At the bash, the parents-to-be were surrounded by Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney, Kylie Jenner, and mom Kris Jenner along with their closest family and friends. The KarJenner sisters and Chyna flaunted their camaraderie on social media, sharing several photo booth snaps as well as videos on Instagram.

“The girls have really come around since Rob and Chyna first got together,” a Kardashian source told PEOPLE exclusively. “They’re trying to be as supportive as possible, especially now that she is pregnant.” Adding, “They’ve seen the transformation Rob has made,” says the source. “Just a year or two ago, none of them could get him to even leave the house, and now he’s happily celebrating Khloé’s birthday out in public.”

Though cameras didn’t follow Chyna on Tuesday’s outing, she has been filming her upcoming E! reality series, Rob & Chyna, near L.A. The mother of one was most recently seen displaying her pregnancy figure while shooting scenes in Encino. Chyna and Kardashian have been keeping all baby details under wraps as they will be sharing it later this year on TV.

“They won’t share any details. They are saving it for their show. Even when friends ask, they refer to their show and say they will share it all on the show,” a Kardashian source told PEOPLE. “Both Rob and Chyna are very excited about their show. They can’t wait to share everything with their fans.”
