Jinger Duggar is nearly halfway home, folks.
Or, to be more specific, Jinger Duggar's impending bundle of joy is nearly halfway home.
The young reality star has updated fans on the status of her pregnancy, sharing a new photo on Instagram on Saturday that depicts her standing alongside a chalkboard.
We can see a baby bump just starting to form underneath her black shirt, while we can also be treated to a science lesson from Jinger at the same time.
"Update on Baby Vuolo," she wrote as a simple caption to the snapshot above, which includes a message of its own.
At 18 weeks, Jinger informs us, a baby is the size of a bell pepper.
Sort of interesting, right?
(And, no, for the medical record, it does not matter if said pepper is red, green or yellow.)
This is the first baby bump glimpse Jinger has given us since her fetus turned 15 weeks old, as you can see below:
Jinger and husband Jeremy Vuolo announced they were expecting in early January.
They did so via a very cute snapshot of the couple and a sign that said, appropriately, "We're expecting."
In a follow-up statement to Us Weekly, the twosome - who got married in late 2016 - told the tabloid:
“The past 14 months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage.
"We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be."
Having barely even held hands prior to exchanging vows, Jinger and Jeremy eventually had the sort of sex that leads to a baby.
"Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: We are expecting our first child!" they added in this statement, concluding at the time:
"We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy."
For the Duggar family, of course, waiting over a year after marriage to get pregnant is equivalent to a lifetime.
(By comparison, for example, Joy-Anna Duggar got pregnant just three months after getting hitched.)
As a result, some judgemental social media trolls have been shaming Jinger over her pregnancy, much to the chagrin of viewers who have followed this TLC personality since she was a young teenager.
Thankfully, in response to this new snapshot, almost all comments have been positive and supportive.
“You’re carrying high @jingervuolo! I bet it’s a girl!” predicted one excited follower.
Added another: "Omg you got a belly as if you were having a girl."
Jinger is yet to confirm the gender of her baby. We're guessing she doesn't even know what it is herself.
But we'll all find out in about 22 weeks!
Kylie may have given birth, but her big sister is still very pregnant with Stormi Webster's younger cousin. And Khloe Kardashian's been showing off her baby bump left and right.
Fans asked Khloe a ton of questions once the pregnancy news was out in the open. One fan even asked her about what it's like to have sex while pregnant.
Well, it being the week of Valentine's Day and all, Khloe decided to answer. And she didn't spare any details.
Writing on her app, Khloe Kardashian talked pregnancy sex at the end of her "Love & Lust Week."
"I have always heard that women are extra horny when they're pregnant," she wrote in response to a fan's question.
It may be the power of suggestion (like the "full moons see an uptick in crime"), or maybe it's just flaring pregnancy hormones, or maybe some age-old survival instinct to cement social bonds.
Khloe, it seems, hasn't had quite that experience.
"But for me it's been interesting."
Interesting is a vague word, but don't worry -- Khloe elaborates.
"In the beginning, sex was the same."
Of course. Before the baby bump and even after, things are usually pretty much the same, apart from abstaining from alcohol (if that's a big part of your sex life) and perhaps any unpleasant pregnancy side effects.
"As I got into my third trimester and started to get bigger," she writes, things began to change.
Beyond the obvious pregnancy changes. Her sex life took a turn for the worse.
"It became harder to have sex and a little more uncomfortable and limiting."
Khloe is quick, however, to say that baby daddy Tristan Thompson did nothing to hurt her self-image.
In fact, she writes that he has been "amazing" and "would never make me feel different in any way."
That sounds very sweet and healthy.
But she goes to say:
"I'm sure it's uncomfortable for a man to have sex with a pregnant woman too."
Of course, some men fetishize pregnancy. So congratulations, foot fetishists, there's something weirder than you out there. (Actually there are lots of things weirder, but let's not talk about oviposition kinks because we love ourselves)
"Personally, I get uncomfortable and insecure. Also, you can't move the same, so you kind of feel useless, LOL. But you just have to improvise and do the best you can."
That's pretty good advice.
Incidentally, Khloe is not the only one who's ever addressed the topic of sex during pregnancy.
According to various sex advice resources, there are a number of positions that are perfectly and should ideally be more comfortable.
One, for example, would involve a pregnant woman on her back or side. A man such as Tristan Thompson would lay on his side, with her legs draped over his hip, during intercourse. One or both parties might have their heads supported by pillows.
Even well into pregnancy, classic cowgirl position can work. If someone feels that they need a little support in order to remain comfortably upright, that same position in a comfortable chair might work. (A chair with arms for said support)
No one, pregnant or not, should ever feel pressured to have sex, of course.
Some hold irrational fears that even careful, ordinary sex will damage a fetus -- or somehow be incestuous. Most sex experts dismiss these anxieties.
Khloe Kardashian has never really shied away from frank and open discussions of sex.
She's talked about oral sex, sex in weird places, the kinds of genitals she wants in a partner (spoiler alert: not small), and even her own genitals.
(She describes herself as having a "puffy p--sy," so there you have it, people who've always wondered what Khloe Kardashian's bits looked like but were too afraid to ask)
Despite her frank openness about baby-making (well, what we'll loosely refer to as baby-making), Khloe was awfully secretive about this pregnancy.
She only debuted her baby bump a couple of months ago, and only on a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians did Khloe confirm her pregnancy on the show.
Most of us might consider sex talk more private than who is or isn't pregnant, but most of us are not Kardashians.
Nine months of secrecy. Nine months of hiding. Nine months of holding back a barrage of selfies and life updates over social media.
Now, the dam has burst.
Kylie Jenner gave birth!!
In an announcement over Twitter and Instagram, Kylie shared that she has given birth to a healthy baby girl. She shared the news on her due date, February 4th, but actually gave birth on February 1st.
In addition to that joyous news -- and an apology to her fans for keeping this part of her life when they are accustomed to her sharing so much -- Kylie and her family revealed everything that fans had missed.
Below, you can see the numerous photos that Kylie and her family shared, including the world's first glimpse of Kim's daughter, Chicago West.
Are you ready to see the baby kick? Are you ready to see the ultrasound? Take a look!

Reports that Catelynn Lowell suffered a miscarriage are heartbreaking.
The Teen Mom OG star has reportedly sought guidance from rehab, but fans are now for the first time seeing her joy upon learning that she's pregnant on the show itself.
Quite the contrast from her current grim reality.
A new report reveals how Catelynn is coping ... and that MTV's crew has been instructed to walk on eggshells around her in this trying time.
On the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn Lowell revealed that she was pregnant.
She shared the news with Tyler Baltierra by putting Nova in a shirt that read "I'm going to be a big sister!"
Kind of a weird way for Tyler to find out what was, at the time, good news. But a cute reveal nonetheless.
Unfortunately, we already know that Catelynn Lowell suffered a miscarriage.
That's one of the pitfalls of reality television being filmed months in advance -- you see sad life events coming in the distance like an oncoming train, but you can't get off of the tracks.
Catelynn has reportedly not taken this well.
Everyone grieves differently. Everyone processes negative emotions differently.
And no two people have the exact same response to the very personal tragedy of a miscarriage.
Considering the childhood trauma that Catelynn has endured, it's very understandable that she faces additional challenges when it comes to grief and loss.
Grappling with suicidal thoughts, Catelynn Lowell checked herself into rehab for her own safety and well-being.
As a reality star, Catelynn has to relive her suffering as her story unfolds for fans and viewers on Teen Mom OG.
But there is still so much that fans don't know. Obviously, many -- though not all -- know better than to directly ask Catelynn about her alleged miscarriage and about details of her stint in rehab.
Keep in mind that a lot of this is unconfirmed, but based upon reports of what people who work on the show were told.
Still, the story adds up.
The pregnancy reports (now confirmed on the show), the confession of suicidal ideation, the rehab reports.
This is all so sad.
HollywoodLife reports on how Catelynn Lowell is coping and on the Teen Mom OG star's current state of mind:
"Catelynn is not ready for any of this to be public right now so it’s complicated."
Yes, it certainly is.
"It’s such a delicate subject there’s a lot of mystery around what exactly happened and the crew has been told not to ask her about it and not to mention it to anyone so there is a lot of unknowns."
True. It's good that the crew has been instructed to be sensitive at this time, but there has to be some unspoken awkwardness on set. Or so we imagine.
"Obviously Catelynn is having a very hard time coping right now so the priority is just getting her stable again."
Absolutely. We all want to know, but Catelynn's health and well-being come first.
Still, the source ends on a positive note.
"It’s a dark time, but she’s a fighter and she’ll make it through."
Considering all that Catelynn has already been through, we're inclined to agree.
Catelynn may have filmed rehab footage for Teen Mom OG. If so, we'll all get front-row seats to an early and crucial stage of her recovery.
But grief and mourning aren't something that you can complete during a stint at an Arizona facility.
Regardless of what makes it on camera, we expect that Catelynn will share her story with fans when she's good and ready.
We're sorry to break this to you, but it doesn't matter what you did on New Year's Eve.
You did not have a better December 31 than America Ferrera.
Because the former Ugly Betty and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star announced that she's pregnant! With her very first child!
And the Superstore star confirmed this exciting news in very exciting and adorable fashion, sharing the photo below of herself, husband Ryan Piers Williams... and some awesome glasses.
“We’re welcoming one more face to kiss in 2018! Wishing you #MásBesos in the New Year! #babybesos#HappyNewYear," wrote Ferrera as a caption.
Added Williams, along with the same picture:
Making room for new and beautiful things to come in 2018! #happynewyear.
Ferrera and Williams have been together for over 12 years.
They met back when Williams cast Ferrera in his student film while at the University of Southern California.
They then became engaged in June 2010 and got married in 2011.
"We kind of connected from the get-go on that professional level and that was something that really drew us to each other," the actress told People Magazine several years ago.
She added at the time that they possess “a shared passion for what we do and our work.”
We are so very happy for Ferrera and Williams.
Back in October, the star opened up about a very troubling experience from her past, while she has also always been an outspoken voice on important social topics.
It's unclear at the moment just when she is due and whether she will have a boy or a girl.
Either way, we send America our best wishes!
This is so very exciting!
Kylie and Khloe are both pregnant, and even due around the same time.
But while Khloe finally confirmed that she's pregnant, months after the world learned of it, Kylie's staying shy ... and mostly out of sight.
In fact, fans feared the Kylie might have opted out of her family's Christmas party. But she was there. And there are photos to prove it.
Fans have been wanting to know where Kylie Jenner's baby bump is for a while, now.
We could speculate all day about what it is that makes fans so eager to see baby bumps in general.
In Kylie's case, though, it's because she's kept it secret for so long. Sure, Kylie's baby bump's been spotted once or twice, but she's kept it under wraps to the point where some fans worry that they're being pranked.
Others have begun to suspect that Kylie has already given birth -- which I don't think is the case, but it's understandable that people wonder if there's a point to this mystery.
(We know that mystery for mystery's sake got a lot of viewers hooked on Lost, but it's perhaps not the best way to approach a pregnancy)
So, the Kardashians are fabulously wealthy and they're also devout Christians.
Christmas is a big time of year for that family. And of course they have a huge party.
Initially, fans worried that Kylie was M.I.A. She's been reclusive -- to say the least -- for months, now.
But, clearly, she was at her family's party.
And we have the photo booth pictures to prove it. Not to mention an exchange between the pregnant sisters in which Kylie expressly confirms it.
We have to wonder if Kylie and Khloe -- both pregnant -- took matching, side-by-side baby bump photos that they didn't choose to share.
What we don't have to wonder is what Kylie was like at the party.
People's source reports on how Kylie and her baby bump looked:
"Kylie looked great but didn’t really draw any attention to her baby bump. She still acts like she wants to keep her pregnancy private."
Well, that's Kylie's choice, even though the entire world's known since September. But we've heard that Kylie's been having body image issues. So ... that's her choice.
"Everyone had the most amazing time," the source added. "Kris always throws the best parties. It was all gorgeous. There was no drama."
In case anyone wondered if this was just someone covering for Kylie (perhaps at Kris' insistence, as that bit of praise seemed almost over-the-top for an anonymous source) ...
Khloe and Kylie had a conversation about that on Snapchat, complete with goofy Snapchat filters.
"Merry Christmas! People think you weren’t there last night," Khloe said.
"I was," Kylie confirmed.
Khloe then added "She's a secret little bunny," which we already knew. Kylie Jenner's due date is February 4th and she still hasn't confirmed it to the world. So, yeah. Secret.
Ray J has once again made news for engaging in sexual intercourse.
The lesser known participant in that Kim Kardashian sex tape from several years ago, the Love & Hip Hop cast member now has an announcement to make.
It also has to do with sticking his penis inside of a vagina.
But this time the vagina belongs to his wife.
And this time the act has led to the creation of a new life.
That's right, Princess Love is pregnant!!!!!!!
The reality star confirmed this exciting piece of unexpected news via an Instagram post that included a close-up of her baby bump.
It also included the following caption:
It’s such a blessing from God to be able to carry our child.
We kept this ourself until after the first trimester because it’s bad luck to announce too early. But we’re so proud to share this journey with you guys.
Thank you for all of the love and prayers.
Ray J included the same snapshot and same message on his official social media account.
It's unclear just when Princess Love is due, but she must be at least 12 weeks along.
That means she'll likely give birth in late spring or early summer.
Appearing as a guest cohost on The Real on Monday, Ray J also told viewers:
“Love is on my mind. Love is on my heart. Princess and I are expecting."
The quasi artist then stood up and and clapped for himself.
Seriously, Ray J is the greatest.
“I’mma be a dad,” added Brandy's brother and Snoop Dogg's cousin. “I’m nervous, excited. It finally happened. My first one.”
Ray J went on to say he doesn't know the gender of the baby-to-be or the exact night of conception.
But he and his wife had been trying "for awhile."
“It’s not as easy as people think," Ray J said.
"For some people, they just go on tour and get everybody pregnant. But for me, it was love. We took our time, and as we were taking our time, it just took a little while.”
Ray J and Princess Love - who have been through A LOT - got married in August of 2016.
Their fertility problems were chronicled throughout season 4 of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, as they further expressed their frustrations during the VH1 reality series’ reunion special in October.
Ray J, of course, banged Kim on video back in 2003 - and he still rakes in money each month off this sex tape!
He's continued to promote it as well, famously releasing the single "I Hit It First" soon after Kim got together with Kanye West.
Like we said, Ray J is the best.
And he has a big penis.
As you've no doubt heard by now, Kylie Jenner is pregnant with her first child.
Kylie has yet to confirm that she's expecting, and a surprisingly large contingent of fans believe that's because she's not actually knocked up.
Why would she engage in such a foolish stunt? What makes Kylie's biggest fans think she's misleading the public? And why the hell won't she just come out and say whether she's pregnant?
Join us as we put on our Sherlock Holmes caps to answer these questions and more:
1. Body of Evidence
2. Deceptive Selfies?

4. Snapchat Slip-Up?

6. But Why Would Kylie Lie?
2017 is a wild ride. The perfidious predators in Hollywood are getting exposed, but we all live in perpetual anxiety that the world will be destroyed because of an impulsive lunatic. That's ... all kind of depressing.
But Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, bizarre and unexpected though it may be, is a welcome distraction.
For us. Apparently, Kylie's finally reached the point where the realities of her condition are starting to freak her out.
Though Kylie and her family are still, for reasons unknown and perhaps beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals, refusing to actually acknowledge it ...
The whole world knows that Kylie is pregnant.
We can only assume that her comical efforts to hide her baby bump are a prelude to some "big reveal" that Kris Jenner dreamed up.
(That woman really knows how to turn any unfortunate situation into a huge source of success; in another life, Kris Jenner might have conquered the world by now)
Of course, some are paranoid that Kylie Jenner is faking her pregnancy. Her motives for that would be unclear. Maybe she's trolling fans or trying to get revenge against the people who report on her life by stringing them along.
That said, people who've spotted Kylie Jenner say that she looks pregnant. As well she ought to -- she's reportedly due in just a few months.
And it looks like that looming due date, and the changes to her body, are finally getting to Kylie.
Remember, she's only 20, and she got pregnant at 19 with a rebound guy she'd been seeing for maybe a month.
There's a lot to freak out about.
A source tells RadarOnline that Kylie Jenner is over her pregnancy's honeymoon phase.
"Honestly, Kylie is just an emotional wreck right now."
Well, that sure isn't mincing any words, is it?
"She does not know what to do or [whom] to trust, and she is just so vulnerable right now."
Is the issue about worrying that a "friend" will snap a photo of her baby bump? that could keep her in isolation.
Or maybe Kylie's having trouble confiding her feelings in people. That could be worse, and much more isolating.
"Her age is really starting to show."
You know, it's funny -- usually, when we talk about someone's age showing, we talk about a teacher talking about how handsome Errol Flynn was we talk about someone not knowing who Ariana Grande is.
In this case, it's not old age that's allegedly showing -- it's Kylie's youth and immaturity.
Sure, people have said "oh, she'll make a great mom" and praised Kylie for being mature or whatever ... but that's just something that people say.
According to that same source, Kylie's feeling scared at the moment.
"She does not know how to be an adult, let alone be a mother."
Remember, Kylie is set to give birth well before she's old enough to legally drink alcohol in the US.
Yeah, alcohol and pregnancy don't mix, but the point is that Kylie is really young for someone who's becoming a mother. And she's basically never had responsibilities in her life aside from appearing on a reality series.
Other women become moms at her age, but most of those other women have had real jobs before and probably have more realistic ideas of what parenting entails.
But RadarOnline's source says that Kylie is feeling isolated.
"She’s feeling so alone!"
Now, all of that sounds believable.
But here's where it starts to sounds like RadarOnline's source is reporting from a parallel universe where everything is all topsy-turvy:
"Kylie is trying to rely on Kris, but Kris has made it clear she simply does not have the time to deal with it."
That ... doesn't sound like the Kris Jenner whom we have all come to know and love (and fear).
Kris Jenner ignoring her youngest daughter doesn't sound plausible. Kris Jenner ignoring her pregnant daughter sounds like someone's fever-dream.
There's no way that Kris Jenner is unwilling to help Kylie through her pregnancy and her transition into motherhood.
But that doesn't preclude Kylie from feeling like Kris doesn't care. Feelings, strange as this may sound, are sometimes less than rational.
Kylie's dealing with more right now than she's ever dealt with before.
She has a huge support network available to her; we just hope that she takes advantage of it.
Announcing you are expecting a baby is fun, exciting and special no matter how you choose to do it.
But these people have chosen to do it in especially unique and hilarious ways...

We’re living in a golden age of Kardashian pregnancies, folks.
First we learned that Kylie Jenner was pregnant with her first child.
Shortly thereafter, we got word that Khloe Kardashian was expecting.
And of course, all of this follows on the heels of news that Kim Kardashian is expecting a fourth child via surrogacy.
Obviously, all of this puts Kourtney Kardashian in a very difficult spot.
Her status as the family’s resident baby-making machine is being threatened, and if you thought Kourtney would just sit idly by and let that happen … well, you’re probably right, as it turns out.
If, like us, you spend way too much time online googling each individual member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan and then starting over at the top of the list, you may have heard the rumor that Kourtney Kardashian got pregnant with her fourth child because she wants to, like, bond with her sisters and stuff.
And because this is the internet and we’re living in the year 2017, the story only gets more ridiculous from there.
Kourtney is dating Younes Bendjima these days, but according to one persistent social media report, she’s not pregnant by him.
Oh, no … that would be far too obvious.
No, according to various anonymous “insiders” on Twitter, Kourtney is knocked up by none other than Scott Disick.
You may be saying to yourself, “Hey, isn’t Scott creepily dating Sofia Richie these days while drinking himself to death in Mexico, a la Under the Volcano?”
To which we would reply, “Yes, and we’d like to take a moment to commend you on your knowledge of the works of Malcolm Lowery and/or the films of John Huston?”
Put simply, Kourtney is not actually pregnant with Scott’s baby.
In fact, she’s probably not pregnant at all.
As far as we can tell, this rumor is the result of a scene in last week’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, in which Kourt revealed that she would be open to having another child with Scott.
Yes, somehow in 2017, there are people watching reality shows who are completely unaware that the footage there watching was filmed several months ago.
(The snow in the Cleveland scenes should’ve been a dead giveaway.)
Now, in order to cover our tracks, we’ll say that it’s possible that Kourtney is coincidentally pregnant with Scott Disick’s baby.
While we’re at it, that stuff about Ted Cruz being the Zodiac Killer might be true, too! Who knows?!
This could be a recipe for success ... or disaster.
But you know how Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with Tristan Thompson's baby?
Kris Jenner is looking for ways to profit from that (to no one's surprise),
For the longest time, it seemed like Khloe Kardashian just couldn't get pregnant.
As it turns out, Khloe's uterus wasn't to blame for all of that.
Recently, Khloe strongly suggested that Lamar Odom is sterile when confronted about getting pregnant now despite past storylines making her seem barren.
Tristan Thompson sure isn't firing blanks, though.
Kylie is pregnant and will become a mother at age 20.
Kim is pregnant via surrogate and is set to welcome her third child into the world.
Khloe is pregnant at an appropriate age, but this will be her first.
Like any mother about to see one of her children give birth for the first time and about to get another grandchild, Kris Jenner must have been over the moon.
Specifically, she was excited about all of the fun ways that she could use this good news ... to rake in more dough.
RadarOnline reports that Kris has something very specific in mind in terms of monetizing Khloe's pregnancy.
Specifically, Khloe would get her own miniseries.
"Kris is really pushing for Khloe to do a Keeping Up with the Kardashians spinoff to document her pregnancy."
Unlike Kocktails With Khloe, which reportedly ended because Khloe was losing interest in doing it, this is a series that would have a limited run by its very nature.
Like ... you can't renew a pregnancy.
"She told Khloe that she would even be willing to film it in Cleveland, since that is where she spends most of her time."
That makes us wonder ... is Khloe planning on raising her child in Cleveland?
No shade, but ... we've never spoken to any Ohio natives who were glad to have grown up there.
"Kris thinks that it would be a nice change to shoot in Ohio because it would hit a completely different demo than what KUWTK viewers are used to."
Is that really how demographics work? Like, surely it would be the same people watching.
Plus maybe a few folks in Ohio keeping an eye out for familiar landmarks.
And maybe some sportsball fans who want to see Tristan Thompson, we suppose.
Overall, RadarOnline's source says tht Kris Jenner's excitement is immeasurable.
"Kris is absolutely through the roof fight now."
We can only imagine.
"This is like a dream come true for her because more babies means more grandkids and better ratings for their TV show."
Kris will certainly love her new grandchildren. Like, in the way that a grandmother loves her grandchildren.
And that's not in any way diminished by how excited she must be for the ways that this news can influence her family's businesses.
Because she's definitely going to use these future little bundles of joy to get bundles of dough.
She already cashed in pretty famously on the births of Kourtney, Kim, and even Rob's babies.
(And speaking of Rob Kardashian, we wonder if baby Dream gave two of Rob's siblings baby fever ... but that's a topic for another time)
To be clear, we do not mean any of what we've said about Kris here in a critical manner.
Kris Jenner is amazing and, quite frankly, a role model.
The Momager can use infamy, "bad" publicity, scandals, and outright hatred to her advantage and she's turned her family's existence into a media empire that's spawned multiple wildly successful businesses.
That means that not only is she incredibly wealthy -- even more so than she was before -- but her children are all extremely rich.
(Well, Rob is just ... rich)
Which sets up her grandchildren to all one day be rich themselves, with endless opportunities before them.
Isn't it every grandparent's dream to be able to do something like that for their offspring and grandchildren?
That's a powerful, admirable legacy.
Mere days after news that Kylie Jenner is pregnant practically brought down the Internet... and weeks after it was confirmed that Kim Kardashian is expecting baby number-three via surrogate... we can now announce the following:
KHLOE KARDASHIAN IS ALSO PREGNANT!
No, we are not kidding.
No wonder Kris Jenner is intent on signing up her family as many seasons of reality television as E! will allow.
Just think of how high the nanny bills will be in 2018!
Khloe is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, a power forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers who has been getting it on with Kardashian for about a year now.
The relationship intensified toward the end of last year, with rumors of a wedding and, yes, a baby, often floating around the famous couple.
The impending baby will be the first for Khloe, while Thompson actually welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.
It is believed he left Craig for Kardashian.
At 33 years old, Khloe has been open for years about her desire to procreate.
She and ex-husband Lamar Odom allegedly had difficulty trying to conceive during their four-plus years of marriage, with Khloe often mentioning that she might try IVF in order to get pregnant.
We can't say for certain this time around whether or not Khloe needed outside help in order to get pregnant, although she has said in the past that she wants to get pregnant naturally.
We don't know how far along she is in her pregnancy, either.
But we know she's excited!
"This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it," an insider tells People Magazine.
"She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen."
"But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves.
"Everyone is over the moon for them both."
Kardashian joked on the season 13 finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in June that her boyfriend would like to have enough kids to start his own basketball team.
"He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that's lovely," she said of the Cleveland Cavaliers star on the episode.
"We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I'm not on birth control, it's really scary. It's like a really big step."
According to another insider close to the family, also via People, Kylie and Khloe are due around the same time: early next year.
“They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,” says this source close to the famous couple.
“Getting pregnant at the same time was totally unplanned but they are really happy about it.”
We have no idea what to even say about this, but we've always loved Khloe and we're so very happy for her and Thompson.
But THREE kids are about to be added to the Kardashian family?!?
Neither Khloe nor anyone in her family has commented on this very strong rumor/report just yet.
We'll pass along their thoughts when they make them public.
For now, it's YOUR turn to sound off:
Are you happy for Khloe and Tristan?
How is THIS for an appropriate announcement on Labor Day?!?
Kate Middleton is pregnant with her third child!
Chatter over the state of Middleton's womb is incessant overseas and within the United States, of course.
There's been talk over whether or not she was expecting baby number-three pretty much since she gave birth to baby number-two.
But questions over whether or not Middleton was pregnant have grown stronger of late, with this being one of those rare occasions on which the tabloids got it right.
(After, like, 679 times of them getting it wrong.)
Kensington Palace has confirmed that the parents off four-year old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte have another bun in their beloved oven.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” the statement from reads, concluding:
"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news."
We don't know for certain just when Kate or William themselves will speak on the news.
During her first two pregnancies, the 35-year old dealt with acute morning sickness, also known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
She has this same condition now and therefore canceled an appearance scheduled for Monday morning.
“As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum," says The Palace.
"Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today,” the statement said.
"The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace."
Due to this illness, and how it may effect how often we see Middleton going forward, the Royal Family confirmed this big news early.
It is believed Kate is still in her first trimester.
One half of this cover claim is finally true!
She is due some time in the spring of 2018.
This must be an especially emotional time for Prince William, whose recently gave a number of interviews because his mother, Princess Diana, passed away 20 years ago late last week.
The birth will relegate Prince Harry down to sixth in line to the throne.
If the baby is a boy, he will actually NOT displace big sister Charlotte in the line of succession, due to a measure that passed just after Will and Kate’s 2011 wedding.
Up until this change, a younger son would usurp his older sister’s place when it comes to inheriting the throne.
But all that business is for another day...
... the important thing to announce here is that KATE MIDDLETON IS PREGNANT!
We are so very happy for her and we wish her nothing but the best.
We hope she rests up and we hope the press gives her and her loved ones some room to breathe over the next few months.
Hooray for the famous couple!
UPDATE: Talking to reporters on Monday, Prince Harry (who may soon be expecting his first marriage!) said the news was, “fantastic, great. Very, very happy for them.” Asked about Middleton, he added:
“I haven’t seen her for a while but I think I she’s okay.”
She's more than okay now, we bet!
Antonio Cromartie has played for four NFL teams over the course of decade-long career.
That's a decent number of squads for which the cornerback has suited up.
But it's nothing - and this bears many repetitions: it's NOTHING! - compared to the number of diapers Cromartie has changed over the years.
And he's about to head back to the store for a new contingent of boxes.
On Monday, Cromartie and his wife announced that they’re expecting their sixth child together as a couple.
Which is a lot. And which is definitely a cause for celebration.
But it also doesn't even begin to tell the story of Antonio Cromartie and his sperm... because this upcoming baby will mark the free agent's 14th child overall.
That is not a typo. Antonio Cromartie has 13 kids and now another on the way.
Antonio and his wife, Terricka, welcomed twins last year, despite Cromartie supposedly having undergone a vasectomy in 2011.
They have three girls and two boys at home.
Now, via a very cute Instagram photo and caption, Terricka has confirmed that another baby is due before the year is over.
“In the up and coming CROMARTIE DRAFT of 2017, with the 6th OverAll Pick. Will the Cromartie's Draft a Boy or a Girl,” Terricka captioned a photo of her baby bump with a pink and blue foot painted on it.
“J6 coming soon #6months #25weeks #boyorgirl #3girls2boys #sexunknown #j6.”
We'd say this pair should spend less time coming up with hashtags and more time finding a reliable birth control method, but hey.
Who are we to judge?!?
According to TMZ, Terricka is 25 weeks pregnant.
This means she is due some time in September.
To be clear, Cromartie himself has "only" fathered 13 kids; 8 in previous relationships, two with Terricka, then the the twins and now this next one on the way.
But Terricka came into this marriage with a child of her own and, to Cromartie's credit, sources say he's a very active stepfather.
Hence the number 14. He's responsible in life for a total of 14 children.
Terricka talked to Us Weekly last year about how she felt upon learning she was pregnant, considering she thought this was physically impossible after her husband got his goods snipped.
“Originally, he was like, ‘Oh, s—t! Are you serious? How did this happen?’ It was shocking news for the both of us,” she told the tabloid, adding:
"I didn’t even tell Antonio right away because I didn’t think it was possible. I was going back and forth in my head how it could even happen.
"In my head we were good to go, we were having free sex! I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point."
According to the National Institutes of Health, only 15 to 20 out of 10,000 couples will experience a pregnancy after a vasectomy, making the procedure far more effective than using condoms or birth-control pills.
But it isn't perfect.
The Cromarties found this out for themselves last year.
So we can understand how they accidentally procreated and ended up with their twins.
As for why they went ahead and had unprotected sex again, well aware that the procedure didn't make Cromartie fertile?
Just like a player signing with the New York Jets, as Cromartie has actually done on two occasions, we'll never fully comprehend that decision.
One of the most precious couples in Hollywood is expecting its first-ever precious bundle of joy.
Via an adorable Instagram photo on Thursday evening, Nikki Reed confirmed the news we've been expecting and hoping to hear for awhile now:
She's pregnant with her first child!
The father, of course, is beloved ex-Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder.
In a note she signed from both herself and her handsome husband, Reed announced her pregnancy via the picture above and the caption below:
Hi Little One -
I know you, but only because I feel you. How is it possible to love someone so much already? All I know for sure is it's the strongest feeling I've ever felt.
We've been sharing this body for quite some time, and we've already experienced so much together. We can't wait to meet you...
Love, Your Parents.
So sweet. So profound. So very Reed and Somerhalder.
It's unclear how far along Reed is in her pregnancy, but it looks as though she'll give birth at some point this year at least.
That's quite the (beautiful) baby bump she's sporting in the image featured here!
Somerhalder was unable to hide his own excitement over the child growing inside of his wife's womb.
Sharing the same gorgeous photo on his own Instagram account, the actor penned the following today:
To our friends, family, and rest of the world.
In my 38 years on this earth I've never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this.
I can't think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first.
This has been the most special time of our lives and we wanted to keep it between the three of us for as long as possible so we could enjoy this time with each other and our little one who is growing so fast...
Because that's what they do, they grow so fast.
Thank you for your kind energy.
Somerhalder and Reed got married two years ago, almost to the day, as they celebrated their anniversary last week with a pair of very sweet messages back and forth.
"To the most amazing human in the world," Ian wrote at the time, adding:
"Thank you for 2 incredible years of marriage. Thank you for being my best friend, the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I've ever known.
"To you my love, I say that I know we will have so many of these we can't even count them. Partly because I'll be so old... I love you."
And then Reed chimed in as follows:
"My guy, my man, my honey, my partner in this life, my better half in every way. At exactly this time two years ago today we walked hand in hand into the next chapter, our chapter, together.
"Every day gets better, every moment calling for even more.
"Navigating the waters of life with you is the greatest and most rewarding adventure I've ever known. We climb, we grow, and we laugh at all of it. Thank you for being exactly who you are, and for loving all of me.
"Thank you for your willingness to go even deeper. Until you, I had no idea what could be. Until you...Happy Anniversary."
Prior to this announcement, Somerhalder had been very open about wanting to start a family with his soulmate.
"It’s a pretty crazy time and place to bring a child into this turbulent, insane world .... but I really can’t wait to do it," Somerhalder said about the possibility of kids awhile back.
With The Vampire Diaries coming to an end in March, Ian finally had time in his schedule to get to some serious lovemaking with Reed.
And this is the result!
We could not be happier for Somerhalder and Reed.
Please join us in sending the couple your very best wishes!
Kailyn Lowry has put an end to the rumor and confessed to the reality:
She is pregnant with her third child.
Chatter over the state of Lowry's womb has run rampant on the Internet for several days now, dating back to last week when Kailyn Tweeted the following cryptic message:
“Remember that life’s greatest lessons are usually learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes."
That could be almost anything, of course.
But when it comes to someone who is famous for being a Teen Mom, many followers took it to mean that Kailyn went and got herself knocked up again.
A few days later, Lowry really got the rumor mill churning (on purpose or by accident, we may never know), when she Tweeted once more.
"I may not have always made the best choices but I will say today I'm happy & my heart is so full," she wrote at the time.
So that brings us to Thursday night and an entry on Kailyn's official blog, one that serves as both a confirmation and also an emotional plea.
"I am pregnant," Kailyn writes, going on to take issue with those close to her who leaked this news before the reality star was prepared to announce it:
"I’m sad that I should have known that people in my life would sell me out before I was ready. Like any normal person, I want it to be a happy time.
"I wanted this to be a private time so I could be excited while not getting chased by paparazzi and bothered with crazy headlines."
Kailyn, of course, is in the middle of a VERY ugly battle with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
Last we heard from him, Marroquin was saying he was "absolutely" done with Kailyn, telling Us Weekly that he gets "disgusted" when he looks at her.
Lowry is the mother to seven-year-old son Isaac Elliot Rivera (with ex, Jo) and three-year-old son Lincoln Marshall Marroquin (with Javi).
This makes it impossible not to wonder:
WHO IS HER LATEST BABY DADDY?!?
Is it possible that she and Javi had a bit of makeup sex at some point in the past few weeks, despite their public Twitter war?
Is it possible Kailyn has a new boyfriend, unbeknownst to the celebrity gossip community?
Is is possible the baby daddy is the man with whom she allegedly cheated on Javi?
Is it possible she simply messed up, slept with a mostly random dude and got herself pregnant again?
All these options seem possible when it comes to Lowry, but she insists it is not the fourth one listed.
"Please know this was a choice I made, I already know some won’t agree but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out," Kailyn wrote as part of her pregnancy reveal.
"Why did I wait? I’ve had a lot of health complications leading up to this pregnancy and I was not ready to release such private information on my own just yet being that I am so high risk with this pregnancy.
"I didn’t want to announce just to have another miscarriage and suffer through another grief."
That's certainly fair.
Lowry is also well aware that her actions do not back up her words.
Those who watch Teen Mom 2 online have heard Lowry say she was finished having children.
What's up with that, Kailyn?!?
"I was filmed on the show saying I didn’t want any more kids, but I’m pregnant again," she has blogged.
"I know so many will have comments on this but here’s the thing - I didn’t want to bring another child into a failing marriage. Shortly after I started having complications, the option of having more kids was almost taken away from me.
"When I started thinking long and hard, I knew I wanted more. This was the choice I made."
Lowry recently finalized her divorce from Marroquin following four years of marriage.
She suffered a miscarriage in 2015, the aftermath of which was chronicled on her MTV series.
"I like to think that everything kind of happened for a reason," she previously told People Magazine.
"I'm not really sure what the reason was yet for that, but I'm just constantly reminding myself that there was a reason why this happened."
In her confession-filled blog entry, Kailyn says Jo is aware of her third pregnancy, while she and Javi never got to talk about it.
She is about halfway through her second trimester and will wait until the baby is born this summer to learn its gender.
"This is the baby I thought I wasn’t sure if I could have," Kailyn concludes.
"I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay. And like I say in my book - with a little bit of hustle and heart, I can and I will survive anything. Having another child is something I am so happy about and I just can’t wait.
"My boys are so excited, those who love me are so excited, and I hope that everyone can just be happy for me during this time."
Lowry ended her website update with the above sonogram photo.
No matter what you think of her recent words, actions or social media actions, Lowry is about to bring another life into the world.
Let's all wish her and the baby our best wishes for health and happiness.
Derek Jeter may be retired from professional baseball.
But that doesn't mean the former New York Yankees legend is done hitting home runs.
Because he's definitely gone all the way at least once with wife Hannah Davis.
In a post on The Players Tribune this morning, the supermodel confirmed that she's pregnant with the couple's first child.
Writing about "The Derek I Know,” Davis reflects on the progression of the couple's relationship to begin her message, saying she actually thought Jeter was a pitcher the first time they met.
(He was actually a shortstop; a future Hall of Fame shortstop, we should say.)
"I think people assume that - because I was a relatively well-known model - dating a famous baseball player wouldn’t have been an adjustment for me," Davis writes, adding:
"But trust me, not all levels of fame are created equal. When Derek Jeter walks into a room … the whole room takes notice.
"Paparazzi followed us at times. People interrupted us during meals. The only way to maintain some sort of privacy - to be together, just the two of us - was to stay in.
"It’s funny: You don’t see many photos from the early part of our relationship … and that’s why. We rarely went anywhere."
Now, Davis basically says, you may not seem them out and about very often, either. But for a very different reason.
Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future," writes the model.
She even included a photo of the five-time World Series champion with pink balloons, breaking the news of the baby's gender.
Adds Davis of her husband and the tandem's impending child:
"He already has a name in mind - he’s set on it. (We’ll see.)... Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him."
Jeter and Davis got married in the summer of 2016, following approximately one year of dating.
This followed a romantic resume of Jeter's that is unparalleled in the annals of Hollywood, as he didn't merely get with Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly and other beauties over the years...
... he managed to never once get in trouble with any of them.
You'd have a better chance of finding articles about how Derek Jeter is not a winner than you would of finding any disparaging quotes about Derek Jeter by a past lover.
“We want our kids’ lives to be as ‘normal’ as possible," wrote Davis.
"They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people. We don’t want them to be defined by their dad’s name - for them, we want him to just be ‘Dad.’
"That will be the piece of him they’ll have that the rest of the world doesn’t. It will be special, and it will be theirs."
Over the past few weeks, of course, other big names - such as Beyonce and George Clooney - have also confirmed that they're expecting a baby in 2017.
We wish all these stars the best!
Well, it looks like twins are the hot new celebrity trend for 2017!
Just days after the world learned that Beyonce is pregnant with not one but two future music icons, People magazine is confirming that George and Amal Clooney are expecting a couple special deliveries of their own.
The magazine is reporting today that "multiple sources" have confirmed Amal is expecting twins.
The Clooneys have yet to comment themselves, but People isn't Star magazine, and they wouldn't put something like this out there without sufficient confirmation.
Apparently, insiders revealed that George and Amal have both shared the news with their families and are preparing a public announcement for sometime in the days to come.
“They’re all very happy," says one source.
George and Amal married in 2014 after what we believe was just over a year of dating.
(They're notoriously private about their relationship.)
The couple's engagement came as a shock to fans, due to George's reputation as the archetypal Hollywood bachelor.
(In fact, he's been married once before, so that image was never entirely accurate.)
Despite the fact that she's remained committed to her challenging and time-consuming career as a human rights attorney, rumors that Amal was pregnant began circulating pretty much from the time the Clooneys got hitched.
Now, it looks as though both George and Amal will be getting a crash course in parenting.
George has addressed the possibility of fatherhood in the past but always seemed to remain guarded on the topic:
“All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future – my future personal future – was going to be,” he told People shortly after his wedding.
“I’ve always been an optimist about the world. I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am.”
Speaking more specifically about the idea of fatherhood after receiving the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive title for the second time, Clooney said:
“I think it’s the most responsible thing you can do, to have kids. It’s not something to be taken lightly."
“I don’t have that gene that people have to replicate. But everything in my life has changed over time.”
Congrats to the happy couple.
We're sure they'll excel at parenting the same way they've excelled at ... well, just about everything else in life.
The New Girl is ready to have a new girl.
Or a new boy!
That's right, folks, Zooey Deschanel is pregnant!
This piece of exciting news was broken by Too Fab, who confirms that the hilarious sitcom star will welcome her second child with husband Jacob Pechenik some time this year.
The 37-year old actress Pechenik are already parents of 18-month-old daughter Elsie Otter.
They surprised fans in August of 2015 when not only announced the birth of this child, but also that they were married.
It turns out they exchanged vows in June of that year, without making a very big deal of it.
The actress' rep released a statement a few weeks later that revealed Pechenik's new status in Deschanel's life.
"I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl," said the rep at the time.
But while Deschanel is typically pretty quiet about her personal life, she couldn't help but gush over little Elsie during a recent appearance on Ellen.
"She is really special. She's saying some words. She says a lot of words but she's really obsessed with hats right now," the star told Ellen DeGeneres, explaining:
"My mom wears hats a lot and we had dinner with her and as soon as my mom came out, my daughter said, ‘hat! hat!'"
Deschanel later told E! News's Kristin Dos Santos that she hopes she is serving as a positive role model to her littie girl.
"When you're holding your baby, you're like, 'I don't wanna go to work - this is like the best thing ever,'" she said. "But it's nice, I think, having a little girl, she knows her mommy works and I think that's a good thing."
As those who watch New Girl online know, Megan Fox joined the show while Zooey was on maternity leave the first time around.
Her character's absence was explained by sticking her in jury sequestration.
It's unclear at this point whether New Girl will return in 2017-2018, so there's no need yet for writers to come up with another way to write Jess off for any extended period of time.
But that's a matter for another time.
For now, allow us to simply send our best wishes to Deschanel and Pechenik, whose couple name, we assume, is "Peschanel."
We also send our best wishes to the following stars, all of whom are expecting kids in 2017:
According to one of her most recent social media updates, Jessa Duggar was 34 weeks pregnant two weeks ago.
We're no mathematicians, but by our calculations, that makes her about 36 weeks pregnant now.
The average pregnancy lasts 40 weeks beginning from the day of the woman's last pregnancy, though the date of conception is usually about two weeks later.
All of this is a very long, unnecessarily scientific way of saying Jessa's due date is fast approaching.
In all likelihood, it's still several weeks away, but there are some fans who believe Jessa may be just about ready to pop, despite what she says on social media.
This theory seems to be based on little aside from the fact that Jessa concealed her second pregnancy from the media for most of her first trimester.
We're not sure why that would lead fans to believe that she actually got pregnant even earlier and kept it a secret even longer, but hey - our motto at THG is we report the nonsensical rumors, and you decide if they're total BS.
Okay, we guess there is one other thing adding to the speculation, which is the fact that Jessa hasn't posted anything on Instagram in four days.
We know what you're thinking:
Who the hell cares?
And we believe you're absolutely right to think that, but there are others who believe that Jessa's absence from the 'Gram is evidence that she's already given birth to a little brother or sister for Spurgeon.
We imagine its name is Pubert, or something similarly horrendous.
The Jessa pregnacy truthers point out that Jessa usually posts on social media about once a day.
They reason that her lack of selfies this week must mean that she's already surrounded herself with hay and farm animals in a three-walled manger, or however the Duggars prepare to give birth.
Obviously, this is a bit of a stretch, but it's worth noting that Jessa and her female family members do tend to be pretty secretive about their pregnancies.
We guess you don't have much choice when 100% percent of your income comes from a reality show that's centered entirely around weddings and births, and you're not not allowed to get divorced.
Lauren Conrad is ringing in the new year with a very exciting announcement:
She's pregnant with her first child!
The former reality star, who has turned her stint on The Hills into a solid career as an author, fashion designer and all-around lifestyle guru, woke up Sunday morning and relayed the news to her Instagram follows.
She is expecting a baby with husband William Tell.
And in case you don't believe Conrad for some reason, she included a picture of a sonogram as evidence.
"Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2017 is going to be the best year yet..." she wrote as a caption to the image.
Check it out here:
Conrad and Tell got married in 2014.
She donned a Badgley Mischka couture gown for the special occasion, which took place in California and which included former co-star Lo Bosworth as a bridesmaid.
The two started dating in 2013 and were together for about a year prior to exchanging vows.
In a 2015 blog post, the ex-Hills and Laguna Beach actress was asked how many kids she wants to have with her husband.
"Maybe two," she wrote. "That way we aren't outnumbered."
At only 30 years old, Conrad has plenty of time to reach this goal, of course.
"My favorite thing about being married is knowing that I have a partner in life that I get to do so many wonderful things with," Lauren once told her followers, adding:
"Dreaming of the things we will do 20 years from now is so fun."
We can't say for certain whether or not Conrad and Tell will be strong parents.
But they appear to have a solid bond, never having made any celebrity gossip headline via any divorce or infidelity rumors of any kind.
"William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy, and when you meet a nice guy who also manages to keep your interest, that is the dream," Lauren previously told Cosmopolitan. "If you're going to settle down, it should be with someone you can't stop thinking about."
Congratulations to the happy and gorgeous couple!
Back in The Hills days (above), who would have thought we'd still be writing about LC?
She's come so far.
Her mother may be able to see Russia from her house, but Bristol Palin can see some more dirty diapers and happy memories on the horizon:
The former Dancing with the Stars contestant is pregnant once again!
Unlike the first two instance, however, Bristol is married to the father of her impending baby.
(We mean this as no slight to Bristol. It's simply a fact.)
Palin and husband Dakota Meyer confirmed that they are expecting their second child in an interview on Friday with Entertainment Tonight.
“We are so excited to announce that our family is expanding!" the couple told ET in a joint statement, adding:
"God has blessed us so much; we are thankful for His grace and new beginnings. A springtime baby in the Meyer home and we can't wait!"
Palin's previous two pregnancies were met with controversy and a bit of consternation.
First, it came to light that she was expecting a child with boyfriend Levi Johnston while her mother, Sarah Palin, was running for Vice President of the United States in 2008.
The pair eventually broke up and only recently agreed on a shared custody arrangement of seven-year old Tripp.
Bristol would become somewhat of a D-List celebrity in her own right, appearing on the aforementioned ABC reality competition and speaking out for conservative causes such as gun control.
Fast forward to the spring of 2015 and Palin calling off her wedding to Meyer, just days before the two were scheduled to exchange vows.
That June, however, Palin announced she was pregnant, making it pretty clear on her blog that the pregnancy wasn't planned.
And that she wasn't too excited over it.
“I don’t want any lectures," she wrote at the time, refusing to name Meyer as her baby's father and adding:
"Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one. When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher."
We almost felt bad for her at the time.
Bristol gave birth to a girl named Sailore Grace about a year ago, finally confirming that Meyer did, indeed, knock her up.
Then, in June 2016, the couple confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that they had actually gone ahead and tied the knot ... despite their seemingly bitter breakup.
"Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you'll end up where you're supposed to be," they said this summer. "We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!"
Not long afterward, Bristol only had nice things to say about Meyer in an Instagram post on Father's Day.
"Thank you for putting our family first, working so hard, and giving our kids the most solid foundation, we love you soo, so much," Bristol said at the time.
We've written some negative things about Bristol Palin in the past, mostly because she's deserved it.
But now she seems married, happy, stable and in love.
She's about to bring another life into the world. That's worthy of a celebration.
We send her our best.
Great news, everybody!
Really, just some much-needed, painfully adorable, really exciting news.
Pink is pregnant!
And from the looks of this baby bump, she's really, really pregnant!
Pink made the announcement just a little while ago by sharing that precious photo to her Instagram page.
For the caption, she simply wrote "Surprise!"
This will be Pink's second child -- her first, of course, being five-year-old Willow, who you can see all cuddled up to Pink's bump in that darling pic.
Pink shares Willow (and will share this new little bundle of joy and love and sweetness) with husband Carey Hart.
It's pretty impressive how Pink managed to keep this pregnancy a secret for so long -- seriously, she's either in her third trimester or she's having twins.
But what's even more impressive is how strongly she feels about motherhood.
In an interview she did last year, Pink so beautifully explained how having Willow changed her life.
"I have lived a lot of life in a very short time," she explained, "and you get hardened a little bit -- you get jaded, you build up walls."
"And when you see this little kid, and you get to watch them through infancy to toddler to little person, it's amazing."
Aww, isn't it though?
"You see how you were," Pink went on.
"When you watch this bundle full of love and light that's untarnished and untainted by heartache and any of the numerous things that change you, it's very healing."
"It's a miracle."
Oh, Pink, honey, you're a miracle, too.
And if you needed any more proof of that, then just check out the amazing message Pink shared after Donald Trump won the election.
(You don't think anybody's done mourning that win anytime soon, do you?)
"To all of MY PEOPLE," she wrote, "and by my people I mean INTELLIGENT HUMANS OF ALL COLORS AND GENDERS AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS."
"Today is a sad day. However LOVE STILL TRUMPS HATE AND WE ARE CITIZENS OF A WORLD THAT NEEDS OUR BEAUTY, DIVERSITY AND SENSE."
"I don't live in a Trump world, a world of hate and entitlement. I live in a world of COLORS AND LOVE. No one takes that away from me."
"Let's not let their hate infect us more than it already has," she finished. "Sometimes losers win."
Ain't that the truth?
Another truth: Pink is and will continue to be just the coolest, most glorious celebrity mom.
Most folks out there get dressed up for Halloween.
But not Aisha Thalia.
The Instagram personality, who has over 542,000 followers, used this year's holiday to dress down... and to make a major announcement.
She's pregnant! With a baby girl!
"Growing my very own pumpkin! #superherostuff," Thalia captioned a selfie that showed off her baby bump in white lingerie.
"And our pumpkin is a GIRL. We didn't care either way as long as she was healthy! 83 days left! Lol."
The Miami resident - who has a Masters in Education, but who is famous mostly for posing in skimpily clothing online - revealed in September that she is engaged to DJ E Feezy.
He, of course, is also the father of her impending first child.
"Of course I said yes," Thalia wrote alongside a photo of her beautiful engagement ring.
"Now, everyone who knows me know I love my students and that I love my job so he picked the perfect day and time to show how much he truly loves me."
On her official Instagram page, Thalia describes herself in many different ways.
She says she is a “Light seeker,” a “kind soul,” a “lover,” a “bikini guru,” a “vegan” and that she “loves learning [and] teaching.”
Soon enough, of course, Thalia will get to add "mother" to that synopsis.
We send our best wishes to this Instagram star and pray she has a healthy baby girl.
Katy Perry is known for wearing candy as clothing, dating John Mayer longer than any reasonable person should, and also for that one time that she kissed a girl and liked it.
Seriously, those are the things she's known for. Tack on her endless list of catchy-as-hell hits, then throw in some cats and cleavage, and you've got Katy in a nutshell.
But even though the mention of Katy's name brings to mind images of cotton candy and boobs 99% of the time, it sounds like she's looking to have a baby soon.
Yeah, the woman who brought us "California Gurls" just a few short years ago is planning on procreating ASAP.
What a wild and wonderful world ...
In an interview that Katy gave last night at gala for the Los Angeles Children's Hospital, she really opened up about her aspirations of motherhood.
"I see the amazing thing of birth and children and the vulnerability and we just have to take care of them and how, how big of an impression we have," she said.
"We have such a responsibility!"
And then Katy dropped the bomb.
"Children to me are becoming a big focus."
Are you listening, Orlando Bloom?
"I don't even have mine," she continued, "but I see it in my sister's kids and just how much nurturing and love they need ..."
Yes, and? What's the end of that thought, Katy?
"I see just how much nurturing and love they need" and you want to have all the babies to give them all the love?
"I see just how much nurturing and love they need" and you're excited because you'll be able to nurture and love the baby that's already set up shop in your uterus?
We're going to need an ending to that sentence, and we're going to need it immediately.
But perhaps Katy's sister's children aren't the only little people to thank for her raging baby fever.
She's been dating Orlando Bloom since at least January, and it seems like things haven gotten serious between them pretty fast.
Back in August, a source close to the couple claimed that they were headed for an engagement, then soon after that, another source revealed that they were talking about having children together.
Orlando, of course, has a five-year-old son, Flynn, that he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
It stands to reason that since Katy has gotten so close to Orlando over these past months, she would have gotten close to Flynn, too.
And that his cute little face would inspire her to want to give him a little baby brother or sister ...
Get it done, Katy. Just get. It. Done.
The rumor is a miraculous reality:
Janet Jackson really is pregnant!
At the age of 50!
Talk of the legendary singer being pregnant first surfaced in early April, after the artist postponed her tour and told fans via video that a "sudden change" was to blame.
"I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I'm going to have to delay the tour," Jackson said in a statement on camera.
The wording got fans talking, of course.
Could Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana be expecting their first child?
Despite Janet's advanced age?!?
"Please, if you can try and understand it's important that I do this now," Jackson added.
"I have to rest up, doctor's orders. I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can."
This seemed to absolutely solidify the pregnancy, but it wasn't until a month later when reliable outlets confirmed the news.
And it wasn't until today that Jackson herself confirmed the news.
“We thank God for our blessing,” Janet told People in an exclusive interview, which includes a photo of Jackson and her baby bump.
Over the last few months, the legendary sister of late icon Michael Jackson has kept a low profile, although she was recently spotted shopping for baby items at London’s Back in Action furniture store.
“She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” an insider close to the Jackson family previously told People, adding:
“She actually feels very good about everything.”
Jackson turned 50 on May 16.
There are a number of complications that can often arise with such a late-in-life pregnancy, but we assume and hope Jackson is taking every necessary precaution.
The child will be the first for Jackson and her third husband, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana. He is 41 years old.
The two have been married since 2012.
Back in 2009, Jackson confessed in a discussion with Harper's Bazaar that she would like to be a mother someday.
And it didn't need to be by biological means, either.
“Sure, I’d adopt," she said. "And I think that if I’m really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that’s God’s plan for me."
So, won't you look at that? It appears as if it really was God's plan.
We're so very excited for Jackson and we send her our very best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby boy or girl.
Rosalind Ross and Mel Gibson are expecting their first child together.
Yes, someone was recently willing to have sex with Mel Gibson...
... but wait! It gets even crazier!
This will be Gibson's NINTH child overall, which means someone was willing to have sex with Mel Gibson on, at minimum, nine different occasions.
The anti-Semitic actor is already a father to eight other children from previous relationships.
They are (deep breath...) daughter Hannah and six sons - Edward, Christian, William, Louis, Milo and Thomas - from his 28-year marriage to former dental nurse Robyn Moore.
He also has a six-year old daughter named with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
Gibson and Ross started dating two years ago.
The former is 60 years old and the latter is 26 years old, which would be enough of a reason for us to question Ross' mental status.
But when you consider Gibson's history of anger and violence toward women, as well as his general disdain for Jewish people and overall demeanor... well...
... let's just hope there's enough money left over for diapers after Ross is finished with her many months of therapy.
Ross makes her living as a champion equestrian vaulter, which a sport that requires participants to dance and perform gymnastic routines on horseback.
Really. This is an actual sport.
We'd have many questions for Rosalind Ross about it if we didn't first have so many questions about why she would give Mel Gibson the time of day, let alone access to her most precious flower.
Last month, Grigorieva reportedly lost millions of dollars from her original settlement with the actor after she broke the terms of their agreement by talking about their alleged domestic abuse case in an interview back in 2013.
In March of 2011, Gibson pleaded no contest to charges of battery, avoiding jail time in the process.
He was placed on 36 months probation at the time and ordered to undergo counseling.
The charges came about after multiple tapes of Gibson absolutely berated Grigorieva went public in the summer of 2010.
He called her a "pig." He made death threats against her. He sounded like such a raving lunatic that even Chris Brown would have told Gibson to calm the heck down.
As a result of the 46-year-old singer-songwriter’s slip-up, however, in talking about these incidents a few years ago, the Australian actor will no longer have to pay Grigorieva the remaining balance of their settlement.
He has already shelled out to her the first of the three installments, totaling $250,000.
He's a really terrible human being.
For the record, this will be Ross' first child.

Jenelle Evans is expecting her third child.
The Teen Mom 2 star has been denying reports over the last few months that she's pregnant, but a recent police report proves otherwise.
If you recall, the mercurial 24-year-old reality star was in a car crash with her boyfriend David Eason back on July 6.
That's when the police report was filed and it stated that Jenelle Evans was pregnant and was complaining of abdominal pains.
Wow. Just ... wow.
Rumors first kicked off in May this year that she was pregnant when she was spotted covering up her stomach.
Given how open the Carolina Hurricane has been on social media about her personal life, this comes as a bit of a shock.
There's no denying, even among fans, that her parenting skills have been called into question on a number of occasions.
Given that undisputed fact, it doesn't come as a huge surprise that the 24-year-old got some hurtful comments.
In a recent episode of Teen Mom 2 (below), she appeared to ditch out on her parenting duties to party for spring break.
This didn't win her any praise with from her haters.
There's no denying that some of the comments people leave online can be pretty horrid - and in this case, it was especially bad.
Upon hearing about her pregnancy news, one fan tweeted, "She should have her tubes tied."
That's a pretty horrible statement to make about anyone.
If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you'll know that Jenelle has been trying to turn her life around over the past few years.
The reality star took to social media to speak about the hurtful comments.
“’So sad.’ ‘Disappointing.’ “She should have her tubes tied.’ ‘Did she have a miscarriage or is she still pregnant?!’ ‘3 baby daddies!’’” her post began.
“These are only some hate comments I have been receiving since yesterday,” the Teen Mom explained.
“I don’t understand what is ‘disappointing’ or ‘sad’ ?! Why not ask if I’m ok from the car accident?!”
“Why not be concerned about my health?!” she added.
“I want privacy. All of you disgust me. It’s all about gossip these days."
"Funny someone else comes out with news they are pregnant and the world is overjoyed.”
“And everyone wonders why I’m so private lately?!” she concluded.
“Because all of you are up my ass and so nosey it’s unbelievable.”
