In early November Jennifer Lopez announced her pregnancy onstage during a concert in Miami. The thirty-eight year old J-Lo was on tour with her husband Marc Anthony, whom she married in 2004 shortly after her much publicized breakup with Ben Affleck. Rumors have also recently surfaced that she is expecting twins after she ordered matching outfits for a baby boy and a baby girl, two monogrammed onesies, a blue one with the word “Prince” on it and a pink one with the word “Princess” on it. Also giving credibility to the rumors is the fact that MSNBC.com reports that Jennifer is registered at Petit Tresor where she is reported to have registered for two Moses baskets, two teddy bears, and an infant jogging stroller designed to hold two babies.
Christina Aguilera also announced her pregnancy in early November. Christina is to married music marketing executive Jordan Bratman, and the couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary on November 19th.
Nicole Richie’s first child with Good Charlotte front man Joel Madden is due in January of 2008. Star Magazine is reporting that a source close to the couple states that Joel wants to choose an Irish name in honor of his heritage and a few of the names that they are considering are Ryan, Lennon, Casey, Dylan, and Presley. It is also noted in the article that Presley is a strong possibility due to the fact that Joel is a huge Elvis fan. The couple is also using this time to help others in the community. On Monday, December 3rd the couple launched the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation to benefit underprivileged mothers and their babies. During the foundation’s launch the couple gave away more than $200,000 in baby supplies to low-income expectant mothers in Los Angeles. Nicole reported that the items given away to the expectant mothers were the same items that she was using in her own baby’s nursery.
