Carrie Underwood: Pregnant with Baby #2!

Right on the heels of an interview coming out in which Carrie Underwood says that it's too late to have more kids, the Country singer took to Instagram to make a stunning, joyous announcement.

Carrie Underwood is pregnant!

You don't have to take our word for it -- check out the video below and see her share the news herself.

Carrie underwood is pregnant

Early Wednesday morning, Carrie took to Instagram to share a series of three videos -- which we have merged for your convenience.

Within the videos, Carrie begins by talking about her music and her tour ... and then she gets to the good stuff.

Carrie says: "You might be wondering or asking: 'Carrie, why is your tour starting in May?'"

"Well," Carrie says as the camera pans out, revealing a giant "baby" balloon.

Carrie exclaims: "Yay!"

She looks so cute presenting the news, too.

"Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon," Carrie reveals.

Mike Fisher is of course her husband, while Isaiah is her child.

"And," Carrie cotninues, she and her family are "excited to be adding another little fish to our pond!"

Carrie has spoken about adoption before and her desire to help other children, but that doesn't mean that another pregnancy is any less of a thrill.

"This has just been a dream come true," Carrie continues.

We're sure that it is!

And she goes out of her way to make it clear that she's excited about more than just her growing family.

"With album and with baby news," Carrie says. "All that stuff."

Looking at her in the video, it seems very clear that she feels a sense of relief that she can finally talk about this.

"We're just so excited," Carrie gushes.

They should be!

Carrie also thanks her fans for being included in this happy moment.

"And we're so glad that you guys can share in this with us," Carrie says. "And be a part of this with us."

Carrie, who already seems to be glowing, can't stop gushing. It's too precious.

"Love you guys!" Carrie says. "We will see you on the road in 2019."

That is when her tour begins -- but not until late spring of 2019.

Overcome with giddiness, Carrie says: "Have a great day!"

She is too precious.

In the interview that we mentioned on Tuesday, Carrie suggested that she had missed her window for a large family -- except through adoptions.

At one point, she referred to her "kids" -- when she only has one child, Isaiah.

Because she was talking about the idea of adoption, it seemed like an innocuous incondistency of language that happens to people all of the time when they speak.

Instead, we now know that it was a slip of the tongue -- that Carrie already knew that she was pregnant.

We cannot help but wonder if her slip of the tongue, and the "controversy" of her discussing her age in relation to safely giving birth, in any way prompted her to share this news sooner rather than later.

Either way, major congratulations are in order!

Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams: Expecting First Child!

A pretty celebrity has some non-little news to share with the world...

... and this is no lie:

Troian Bellisario is pregnant!

Troian Bellisario and Patrick

The Pretty Little Liars alum and her famously handsome husband, Suits actor Patrick J. Adams, are expecting their very first child together, E! News has confirmed.

Word of this nature started to spread in late May after the 32-year-old was seen on the beach in Mykonos, seemingly with a just-developing baby bump protruding out of her swimsuit.

Since then, Bellisario has kept a fairly low profile... and neither she nor Adams has actually confirmed that their family of two will soon become a family of three.

But multiple reliable outlets are now reporting this as fact.

Bellisario and Adams, meanwhile, were most recently seen out on public in London on May 19, showing support for a certain former Suits actress who was marrying a certain gorgeous prince.

Indeed, the two were prominent guests at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Royal Wedding!

Patrick J. Adams and Troian Bellisario at the Wedding

Adams and Bellisario met in 2009 while starring in a play; they got engaged in 2014

From there, the actor and the actress tied the knot in a beautiful wedding in Southern California in December 2016.

They took their honeymoon in Australia.

“What’s not to like about working with Patrick? He is talented, intelligent, funny, handsome, so that makes my job across from him easy to do, and he is my best friend so every day was a blast,” Bellisario told The New Potato in 2017.

For his part, Adams left the USA Network hit Suits after Season 7, the finale of which featured his character marrying and going elsewhere with Markle's character.

Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams

He made headlines shortly afterward by addressing Prince Harry in a funny and sweet Tweet that read as follows:

Playing Meghan's television partner for the better part of a decade uniquely qualifies me to say this:

Your Royal Highness, you are a lucky man and I know your long life together will be joyful, productive and hilarious. Meghan, so happy for you, friend. Much love.

At the time of his departure, Adams gushed a bit over Bellisario in explaining this professional decision, telling The Hollywood Reporter:

"After seven seasons - really, eight years of being away from home and away from my now-wife and there was that pressure.

"At the moment, I’m interested in taking a break.

"It’s nice to be home. It’s really nice to be with Troian, our dogs and to take the time to figure out exactly what shape I want to take my career after this."

Adams now has time to ponder this, it's true.

He'll also soon have time to change diapers and help around the house with the baby.

Congrats to the very happy and attractive couple!

Paola Mayfield: Juan Has to Accept My Pregnancy or He Can GTFO!!

Time and time again, Paola Mayfield's friend, Juan, has clashed with her husband, Russ. Juan has made no secret that he objects to their relationship.

So how is he taking the happy news that Paola is pregnant with Russ' baby?

Paola suggests that it ultimately doesn't matter -- because she's pregnant, and Juan just has to accept it.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield

Paola Mayfield tells Us Weekly that she broke the news of her pregnancy to Juan just a day before it went public.

Pao explains what she said to Juan: "I told him, ‘Look, this is gonna happen, so I don’t want you to find out through someone else.'"

That makes sense.

She also describes his reaction: "And he was like, ‘I’m about to cry.'"

But ... perhaps not in the way that viewers of 90 Day Fiance might expect. These were happy tears.

"'Even though I know I’m not a big fan of Russ,'" Paola says that Juan said. "'This is amazing because I love you and I know what you’ve been through, so I’m really happy for you.'"

Paola Mayfield and Russ in the Water

That is so sweet of him to say!

Paola admits that she was "surprised" by how positive his reaction was, knowing that this baby will tie her forever to the man whom he believes to be too controlling.

So, will this baby help -- or force -- Juan and Russ to mend fences?

"I want to believe [it will]," Pao says. "But he has to accept it no matter what."

Juan can't just wish away this pregnancy news -- or her marriage. Even though he's been trying with the latter.

"There’s nothing he can do about it," Paola says very directly. "And I don’t want the negativity around us because we’re going to be parents."

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

So, in other words, she's leery of having him come around.

But she says that she's not banning Juan from visiting.

"I’m not gonna say no," Paola says about a potential visit from Juan. "But he’s definitely going to need to be more respectful if he’s gonna wanna hang around."

More respectful towards Russ. Or, at least, more polite and less confrontational.

"[He needs to be] more civil, cordial," Pao laments. "That’s all I’ve asked from him."

Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield in the Water

Earlier this week, Paola gushed about her pregnancy news.

"This is the most amazing feeling ever!" Paola announced. "We can’t believe we are going to be parents —-- we are already so in love with our baby."

That is so touching!

"We are ready for this new adventure," Paola said at the time. "And we know it will bring us closer together."

Which Juan will just have to accept, as she said.

Paola gushed: "God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat!"

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Pregnant?

Of course, just because Juan is totally onboard with Baby Mayfield doesn't mean that everyone will be.

First of all, both Paola and Russ have plenty of haters. Some agree with Juan that Russ is too controlling and tries to make Paola conform to his life.

(He's gotten so much better about accepting her career, though)

Others feel that Paola should abandon Miami and her modeling career and worship the feet of her lord husband (or whatever) and be grateful to live a quiet life in Oklahoma.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Breakfast Time

For the record, Russ has defended Paola against these trolls.

Finally, there will be another wave of haters with whom Russ and Pao have less experience -- pregnancy shamers.

Everything from the cereal Paola eats to the size and shape of her baby bump will be given intense scrutiny by social media commenters. Ugh.

People with dynamite figures like hers -- and abs for days like hers -- often have smaller baby bumps.

There are trolls out there who live to tell fitness-oriented women that their wombs will be crushed by their abs or whatever. You just have to ignore it.

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield: Expecting First Child!

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield have spent the past few weeks insisting that they're still together.

Constantly facing questions about their status, the 90 Day Fiance stars have sworn that everything is good and positive and now they have a new and exciting way to prove it...

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield

... Paola is pregnant!!!!!!

And you don't need to simply take our word for it, either.

Just listen to what the TLC personalities themselves have to say.

"This is the most amazing feeling ever! We can’t believe we are going to be parents - we are already so in love with our baby,” the stars tell Us Weekly.

“We are ready for this new adventure and we know it will bring us closer together.

"God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat!"

This baby will be the first for Russ and Paola, but that statement does come with a caveat.

Paola Mayfield and Russ

The couple revealed earlier this year that Paola had suffered a fairly recent miscarriage.

This tragedy was actually featured on an episode of 90 Day Fiance, as a doctor explained to the model that the miscarriage was due to her having type O-negative blood that was also Rh-negative.

This is a rare condition, but it's one that a doctor can manage for a future pregnancy once he's aware it exists.

The very sad situation created a rift between the Mayfields, who got married in October 2013.

Paola thought that Russ was not there for her in the way she needed following the devastating news; while Russ thought his wife was trying to shut him out.

The other major obstacle Russ and Paola thave run into centers around the latter's penchant for showing off her body.

The Mayfields

Russ was raised in a more conservative manner and has admittedly taken issue with Paola's topless shoots.

But he insited in a July 7 Instagram post that this doesn't mean he isn't committed and in love.

"I am tired of the comments from the marriage ‘experts’ stating I deserve better, my wife doesn’t respect me, or she only loves me for my money,” Mayfield captioned a photo of himself kissing his wife.

He elaborated, growing a bit angry:

“The mere glimpse of our lives shown doesn’t always show our best moments but impressions and impressions from our cultural differences and how we are coming together as an even stronger couple. …

"I am proud of where I come from and where I am going and that’s with the love of my life."

Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield, Valentines Day 2018

That sounds fair, doesn't it?

Reality television shows certainly are known to edit content at times in order to increase the drama.

This doesn't mean the Mayfields haven't clashed over their belief systems on occasion.

But their marriage does not appear to be in trouble.

Part 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? airs Sunday, July 29, at 8/7c on TLC.

Congratulations to Paola and Russ!

Rebecca Lo Robertson: Pregnant with First Child!

Rebecca Lo Robertson has some rather exciting news to share.

You may have guessed it based on our headline above, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth repeating:

The Duck Dynasty alum is pregnant with her very first child!

Rebecca Lo Robertson Pregnant Pic

Robertson tells Us Weekly that she's nearly 15 weeks along and is due on January 15.

She also explains why she told her 15-year old sister Bella about the impending baby before she even told her husband, John Reed Loflin.

You see, she needed her sibling's help to surprise John on his birthday.

“I bought a little baby denim jacket cause me and my husband both love denim jackets and we always wear matching stuff,” the Duck and Dressing boutique owner revealed.

However, when Rebeca presented John with the item, he thought it was for their well-dressed and quite fancy French bulldog. HA!

 It wasn’t until he saw the pregnancy test that he realized what was actually happening.

Rebecca Lo Robertson, Husband

“He was shocked and like, ‘Wait, what!?’” Rebecca tells the tabloid, adding:

“He was just crying then, of course, I was laughing the whole time.”

For those unaware, Rebecca has an interesting story:

She arrived to live with the Robertson family as an exchange student from Taiwan when she was 16 years old.

She has not been legally adopted by her famous relatives, but that's just a nit-pick or a technicality. She is very much considered a family member.

kissing hubby

Robertson's parents, Willie and Korie Robertson, were just as shocked as Loflin to learn about their grandkid on the way.

“My mom was like, ‘Oh my god! Ah! Ah!’ And then she started crying and she was like, ‘Are you feeling okay?’” Rebecca Lo relayed to Us Weekly.

Rebecca and John got married in December of 2016 -- and they do plan on learning their baby's gender.

The test results will be in on July 30. 

Both mom and dad just want a healthy boy or girl, of course, but...

Rebecca Lo Robertson Picture

“I think John Reed is thinking like, he wants to show his boy how to play draws and go hunt and you know,” Rebecca says, being sure to add:

“But of course girls can do all of that too.”

Duck Dynasty aired on A&E from 2012 to 2017 and centered around the Robertson family and their duck call business.

Rebecca did not play a major role, although she was definitely known over the years to viewers.

Rebecca's sister, Sadie Robertson, told Pop Culture.com at one point that the likelihood of a Duck Dynasty reunion in the near future is slim.

But not none!

"Right now, for sure not," she said in February. "We are totally on break. My little siblings are growing up, and my parents just wanted to be parents, and raise them up in a normal way, and try to get that normal capacity back.

"For me, I moved to Nashville. We're all around right now, doing our thing. Maybe one day, but it would have to be a while."

Desiree Hartsock: Pregnant With Baby #2!

It hasn't been quite two years since Desiree Hartsock gave birth to her baby boy.

But Desiree and husband Chris Siegfried -- one of those rare, rare examples of a Bachelor fam match that actually lasts for any time at all -- already have more good news.

Desiree is pregnant with baby number two!

Desiree Hartsock and Husband Chris Siegfried

In an Instagram post, Desiree made the announcement to her fans and followers.

Desiree writes: "We are beyond excited to finally announce that we’re expecting baby number two!!"

That is such good news! 

"And it’s safe to say," Desiree continues. "After Asher realized he was going to be a BIG brother he wasn’t so happy!"

She is kidding. Here is a photo of the now-toddler with his parents sporting a casual Fourth of July look.

Desiree Hartsock, Chris Siegfried, and Son

"Lol," Desiree writes. "Actually he just didn’t want to take direction (what kind of toddler is he?) and had a tantrum."

Awww, poor thing. Toddlers might not really understand what it's like to be an older sibling just yet. They're also overwhelmed with emotion because the whole world is still so new to them.

"BUT," Desiree says. "We are glad to share our good news with you all."

Of course! Good news is always fun to share.

"And can’t wait to take you along for the ride!" Desiree concludes.

Desiree Hartsock, Chris Siegfried Together

Desiree does follow up with a plug and an answer.

"Read more of our family planning and baby announcement over at @usweekly," Desiree writes. "(Link in profile)."

We have the contents of those statements below, for your convenience.

"We don’t know gender yet," Desiree admits. "But will find out and share when the time comes."

Finally, Desiree writes: "Thanks for all the support and love during this time!!!"

Desiree Hartsock Talks Bridal Designs

Speaking to Us Weekly, Desiree Hartsock gushed about this second pregnancy.

"We both felt joy," she says of herself and husband Chris Siegfried, who won her season of The Bachelorette and also her heart.

Desiree says that there's a major difference between the first pregnancy and this one.

"I wasn’t working during the first pregnancy," she reveals.

She is a bridal gown designer, and she's doing extra work now because she knows that she won't be able to, later.

Desiree says: "I’ve been putting in the work."

Desiree Hartsock Engagement Photo

Chris says that he's been doing what he can to be helpful during this time.

"I’ve jumped back into it,” Chris tells Us Weekly.

By "it," he means activities around the house.

Chris says: “I cook and let Des relax as much as she can.”

That's good! Though we're sure that Chris is not suggesting that he normally doesn't do things around the house and leaves it to Desiree.

Desiree and Chris also reveal what some of her current cravings are. Pregnancy cravings can be a little odd.

The couple reveals that Desiree has a recent hankering for “Italian sandwiches and vinegar."

You know what? We've heard stranger things. The placenta makes all sorts of demands on the mother's body by introducing its own hormones into the bloodstream. Sandwiches and vinegar is, all things considered, pretty mild.

Kate Upton: PREGNANT!

Great news for the future of modeling!

And also for Kate Upton and her husband, Justin Verlander!

Kate Upton Pregnant

If you caught the headline, then you know what's up -- Kate is pregnant with her first child!

She announced the news with this stunning photo (though honestly, is there a photo of Kate Upton that isn't stunning?) that she shared on Instagram yesterday.

Instead of gushing about the future or going into any details, she kept it simple by tagging Justin in the picture and adding one little hashtag, "pregnant in Miami."

And judging by her appearance here, yeah she is!

She's obviously not huge or anything, but she's definitely got a bump going on already.

Like we said, she hasn't offered any details yet, but it's easy to imagine she's been waiting a little while to share the big news.

Kate Upton on a Red Carpet

Many people wait until after the first trimester to make a pregnancy announcement, so there's even a chance she's nearly halfway through already!

And can we take a moment to talk about how flawless she looks?

It seems like pregnancy, just like literally everything else, really suits her.

(Get it? Because she's weaing this amazing maternity suit? Do you get it?)

Oh, and you know how we said that Kate hasn't done any gushing about her growing bundle of joy yet?

We can't say the same for Justin.

Justin Verlander with Kate Upton

The Houston Astros pitcher actually left a comment on Kate's photo, and it's honestly a little too precious to handle.

"You're going to be the most amazing Mom!" he told her.

"I can't wait to start this new journey with you!"

He told Kate that she's "the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I've ever met," and that he's "so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you!"

"I love you so much," he concluded.

Isn't that just the sweetest thing?

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander, Hammock

It makes sense -- their entire relationship has been pretty darn sweet.

These two beautiful people have been together since 2014 -- four years, a miracle for celebrity relationships!

He proposed in 2016 with a great big ol' diamond, and of course they were married last November in a ceremony in Tuscany.

And now, eight months later, we know that they're going to add a little baby to their list of adorable achievements.

Congrats, Kate and Justin!

Jinger Duggar on Giving Birth: I’m Terrified, Y’all!

Not long after the world learned that Jinger Duggar is pregnant, the beloved reality star revealed her due date to be sometime in early July.

Now, we suppose different folks have different definitions, but for most people, that would mean any date between July 1 and July 15.

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Throwback

What we're saying is, if it's not already passed, Jinger's due date is very, very close.

And it seems that even though birthing and child-rearing have pretty much been parts of her day-to-day life since childhood, Jinger is currently experiencing the heady mix of emotions that every first time goes through in the final stages of pregnancy.

Speaking with TLC recently, Jinger revealed that she's more than a little frightened by the prospect of giving birth.

"I get scared thinking about birth and labor," she told her home network.

Her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, didn't offer much in the way of help, admitting that he's flat-out clueless about the entire process:

"I don't know much about birth," he said.

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Like we said, Jinger must know a thing or two about birth, what with having 13 younger siblings and 10 nieces and nephews.

But in many ways, she and Jeremy are in uncharted territory.

From the very start, they established that their marriage would be different from those of Jinger's sisters.

The most obvious act of rebellion, of course, was Jinger's decision to begin wearing pants instead of floor-length dresses (with her husband's permission of course).

But the couple also set themselves apart in more subtle ways.

Jinger Duggar at 7 Months

Jinger waited a full year after her wedding to get pregnant.

Obviously, there's nothing unusual about that in most cases, but Duggar women typically get pregnant on their honeymoons.

And soon, Jinger will become the first Duggar woman of her generation to give birth outside of the great state of Arkansas.

Again, that may not seem like a big deal, but the Duggars are second only to the Waltons as Arkansas' most famous family, and their ties to their hometown are very strong.

Anyway, it's refreshing to see Jinger being so candid about her trepidation -- we suppose that's just one more way in which she's breaking the mold.

Watch Counting On online to get caught up on the show that made her family famous before the season premiere later this summer.

Deena Cortese Flaunts Baby Bump for the First Time!

There's good news for Jersey Shore fans: Deena Cortese is pregnant with her first child!

Deena and her husband, Christopher, are expecting a baby boy within the next six months.

And now she's giving fans and followers their first-ever real look at her baby bump. Take a look!

Deena Cortese and Husband Christopher Buckner

Back in 2016, Deena became engaged to Christopher Buckner. This was after her stint on the first run of Jersey Shore.

It was also a couple of years after she appeared on Couples Therapy.

The two of them tied the knot just before Halloween in 2017.

And now they're expecting a baby together. They held off on sharing the good news until they were ready, but they just had to let fans know.

Take a look at Deena's baby bump at 14 weeks!

Deena Cortese Baby Bump

Awww!

In the captions, Deena writes: "Excited to share our pregnancy journey with all of you!!"

"Our first bump pic," she says beside the photo of her cradling her baby bump while wearing a stunning and form-fitting cobalt dress.

She follows that with two turquoise heart emojis. (They may have appeared blue on some screens)

"Don’t worry," Deena assures her fans and followers. "I won’t post bump pics every single week! Lol"

Surely no one would mind. Once a week is not a lot of Instagram photos.

"But this," Deena says. "Is the first!!"

It sure is.

Deena Cortese and Christopher Buckner

In the background of the photo, the sign for 14 weeks has some blanks filled in.

At this stage of her pregnancy, the fetus has about the same volume as a decent-sized lemon.

Deena is feeling both tired and excited -- both of which are very understandable.

She is craving, she reveals, three things in particular:

Candy, Fruit, and ice pops.

Deena Cortese Gender Reveal

Deena and Christopher found out that they were especting a boy at one of those goofy color-coded gender reveal parties.

On July 1, the couple announced their good news all at once.

"Chris and I Decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans!" Deena's post began.

"Now that we are safely into our second trimester," Deena wrote. "Us and our little monkey are ready to tell the world Our little family is growing."

Deena gushed: "We have a sweet little boy on the way!"

Christopher Buckner with Deena

"We Are truly blessed," Deena's announcement post continued. "And our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness."

She even revealed the due date -- she really dumped all of this info at once!

"December," Deena teased. "Can’t come soon enough!"

That is so soon!

"Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John," Deena added, revealing the name of their future baby.

Those are two of the most common names in the English-speaking world, so we hope that Christopher John really likes either nicknames or his initials.

Deena promises: "You are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!!!!"

That is just so sweet to hear. You always want what's best for any child, and it sounds like Deena and her husband are prepared to give little Christopher John just that.

Jinger Duggar SLAMMED By Fans For Endangering Unborn Child!

While we don't know her exact due date, we do know that Jinger Duggar will soon give birth to her first child.

Early in her pregnancy, Jinger revealed that she was expecting to deliver in early July. 

So now that Independence Day has come and gone, it comes as no surprise that fans are intently watching her social media pages for indications that Jinger has gone into labor.

Jinger, Jeremy, John David & Abbie

Despite rumors to the contrary, however, it seems that Jinger is still pregnant.

Which is why some fans are upset to see that her hair color has changed slightly.

As you may know, there's some debate as to whether or not it's safe for pregnant women to color their hair.

It seems to be one of those arguments in which junk science and urban legends reign supreme, which is why many of Jinger's Instagram followers saw fit to lecture her in the comments section of her latest Instagram photo.

“How can you safely dye hair while pregnant?” wrote one person.

“I guess I’ve always heard the dangers of the chemicals are an absolute no during pregnancy," another remarked.

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Some fans took a subtler route, confessing to ignorance on the matter, then promptly throwing shade:

“Love your hair Jinger! I wasn’t allowed to color mine when I was pregnant," remarked one such follower.

"I was told it could harm the baby. Things must have changed since then.”

Others defended Jinger and pointed out that there's no evidence that mothers can harm fetuses by coloring their hair.

“I’m a licensed cosmetologist and coloring is fine,” countered one person. 

“We do recommend holding off the bleach till done with pregnancy, but it’s really to each his own!”

Jinger Duggar: Pregnancy Pants

Another wrote, “The colored parts in her hair don’t reach to the roots, so I’m pretty sure there’s no problem with it.”

Generally, when you're looking for authoritative answers on a medical question, it's best to look somewhere other than the comments on an Instagram post, and according to the American Pregnancy Association's website, it's perfectly safe for expectant moms to dye their hair:

“Although fairly limited, most research indicates the chemicals found in both semi-permanent and permanent dyes are not highly toxic and are safe to use during pregnancy,” the site reads.

“In addition, only small amounts of hair dye may be absorbed by the skin, leaving little that would be able to reach the fetus. As such, this small amount is not considered harmful to the fetus.”

So we guess Jinger is in the clear on this one.

But don't expect her to take to IG and defend herself against the haters.

Jinger Duggar at 7 Months

For one thing, that would go against Duggar protocol.

Aside from the family firebrand Derick Dillard, no one in the extended Duggar clan engages with online trolls.

And now that Derick has been fired by TLC, you can bet that Jim Bob is more adamant than ever about maintaining a wholesome image on social media.

On top of all that, Jinger has more serious concerns on her mind these days.

She's reportedly in nesting mode at the moment, and she'll soon be the first Duggar woman of her generation to welcome a child outside the state of Arkansas.

It's a lot of pressure -- and we say if Jinger wants to treat herself to some highlights, we should all just ease off and let the woman live!

Watch Counting On online for more on reality TV's most controversial family.

Kate Middleton: ALREADY Pregnant With Fourth Child?!

It's only been three months since Kate Middleton welcomed her third child, but if a new report from Life & Style is to be believed the Duchess of Cambridge is already expecting her fourth.

Mind you, that's an if that would give Big Ben a run for its money in the size department.

Royal Baby #3!

The tabloid's claim is based on specious evidence gathered by sources who have noticed things like Kate is eating food and wearing pants.

“Those close to Kate are saying she’s pregnant with baby number four,” one "insider" claims.

“Kate is showing all the signs of pregnancy, and she and William have always said they wanted four children to complete their family. Actually, William would like five kids — but Kate thinks four is enough!” 

Yes, the Royal Willie shows no signs of slowing down, but we still have a hard time believing Kate is knocked up again, just three months after giving birth.

That said, a set of Irish twins would be a good way for Kate to honor the part of that island that remained loyal to the crown, and she has spoken about wanting her kids to be close in age.

“It’s important to Kate for her own children to have a similar bond with their siblings, and she knows it’s more likely to happen if they’re close in age,” says the source.

Kate Middleton, Very Pregnant

Another supposed sign that Kate is in a family way is the fact that she skipped a recent birthday celebration for Prince Charles -- but there are several possible reasons for that.

Maybe Kate was still hungover from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

Maybe she's stick of this weird royal custom of people their celebrating birthdays whenever they feel like it.

(Charles was born in November, but his birthday party's in May?! WTF is that?)

Perhaps she just (rightly) believes that Charles is a lame-ass.

Whatever the case it seems the clearest indicators that Kate is expecting are her fashion and culinary choices.

Kate Middleton in Final Trimester

“One of the reasons for her not attending was that she was exhausted and felt sick,” the source claims.

“She’s wearing loose-fitted clothing again, avoiding alcohol, and craving curry, which she often does when she’s pregnant.” 

Yes, apparently "curry and biscuits" are Kate's main pregnancy cravings.

Now, we're assuming the source means "biscuits" in the British sense.

In America, we call them "cookies" because that's what they're called.

What's less clear is if Kate is eating those two items separately, or if she's combining them.

Now, if she's crumbling up Oreos and mixing them with her tikka masala, then Kate is either George III-level psychotic, or stoned out of her gourd.

Frankly, either possibility would make for a more interesting story than her being pregnant again.

Kenya Moore: FIRED Because She Won’t Give Birth on Camera?!

Earlier this month, Kenya Moore silenced trolls and decried false stories about her, her husband, and her pregnancy.

But ... was part of that just bluster to cover up a huge problem with her reality career?

A new report says that Kenya is not only no longer a Real Housewife, but that she'll be lucky if she makes "Friend of the Housewives" status.

Kenya Moore, Glowing Selfie

RadarOnline reports that The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars were spotted filming without Kenya Moore.

Specifically, their sources spotted NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Marlo Hampton, Cynthia Bailey, and even Eva Marcille.

(Eva, as you may recall, is not only a new mom but a new full-time Real Housewife)

These women were all spotted at Novikov in Miami.

Kenya was, they report, nowhere to be seen.

According to RadarOnline's source, these stars were in town to support NeNe Leakes' fashion show and Swagg Boutique store opening.

The source described their dining choices, as well -- something that may be significant.

"The ladies dined on king crab legs," the insider reveals. "With honey truffles, caviar, and wagyu steaks along with Wasabi martinis."

That definitely sounds ... opulent.

(We will get into why the menu may help to explain everything in a moment)

RadarOnline has reported that Kenya's reality career is in danger, saying: "Kenya’s status as a ‘friend’ is in jeopardy because she is holding up the deal."

"Kenya was told she would have to take a drastic pay cut," the insider adds.

That is interesting to hear, given that Kenya has gone above and beyond to deny rumors that her reality career is on the line.

The source continues, claiming: "And there was no guarantee about how many episodes she would appear in, or if she would appear in any at all."

Kenya didn't like it when fans questioned her pregnancy and she eventually showed evidence that she really is with child.

Will she do the same again for her status as a Real Houswife? Or is this rumor true?

Kenya Moore Early Ultrasound

Kenya not only shared a photo of her baby bump to silence doubters, she later went on to let fans see part of one of her early ultrasounds from the doctor's office.

But this pregnancy might help explain away her absence from that dinner in Miami.

See, it includes multiple seafood items. The women were also drinking martinis.

Guess what pregnant woman are not advised to have for dinner? Any of that.

So, though we know that RadarOnline has multiple sources, some might suggest that the simplest explanation for Kenya's absence from dinner was that she didn't want to be surrounded by costars eating and drinking things that she herself cannot.

But RadarOnline reports that an insider claims that she's basically done on the show. 

"At this point," the insider claims. "The show is ready to move along without her at all."

Why? Well ... timing.

The source alleges: "Bringing Kenya back full-time would be useless."

That sounds kind of mean to us. But they just mean that, allegedly, Kenya's pregnancy is less than optimal for the show's schedule.

"Her pregnancy timeline conflicts with the production schedule," the insider explains. "She said she’s due in November/December but production wraps in October."

Hmmm. That's definitely something to consider.

Still, perhaps Kenya can prove to producers that she's worth her (pregnant) weight in cash even if her childbirth happens during hiatus.

Beyonce: ACTUALLY Pregnant With Baby #4?!

Earlier this week, one of the greatest mysteries of our time was solved when the world learned the identity of the actress who bit Beyonce on the face.

Of course, Queen Bey might be the most scrutinized woman on the planet, so we shouldn't be surprised that a new mystery has already emerged to take that one's place.

Beyonce at Coachella

Currently, Beyonce is performing with Jay Z in the wildly ambitious, globe-trotting On the Run 2 Tour.

The concerts have already given fans plenty to talk about, including possible hints that Jay was caught cheating again.

Now, the rumor mill has really kicked into high gear thanks to widespread speculation that Beyonce is pregnant with her fourth child.

The rumors seem to be based on little more than Bey's choice of costume on the tour.

But if you thought such shaky evidence would prevent fans from eating these reports up unquestioningly, then you don't know Beyhive Twitter.

"If you notice on Beyonce's dress a heart is located on the mid section. I'm convinced that there is a little angel growing inside," one fan speculated via Twitter.

"Heart represents Heart beat," the fan added, in case you're really, really not big on symbolism.

"She's wearing blazers, capes, and extra accessories around her abdomen," another added.

"I'm suspicious. Beyonce might be pregnant again."

Other fans believe they've already spotted a bump.

Pretty bold declaration, but hey -- we live in a time in which being first trumps being accurate every time.

Fans have noted that Bey and Jay both have the number 4 tattooed on their ring fingers, but that's not necessarily an indication that they're planning to have four children.

Beyonce Baby Bump?

Bey's fourth studio album was titled 4 and Jay's latest release was titled 4:44.

So we think it's safe to say the number carries significance to the couple that goes beyond the number of offspring they'd like to raise.

Besides, we're sure the Carters are too smart to leave something like that to chance.

If Beyonce has kids again, the whole motif would be ruined!

Speaking, of twins, Bey gave a special shoutout to Sir and Rumi at a recent performance, saying:

"Happy Birthday to Sir and Rumi. We love you!"

We're sure the Beyhive is currently dissecting that comment for clues.

Jill Duggar: Hiding Pregnancy From Fans?!

When a Duggar woman gets pregnant, the whole world hears all about it.

But only after she hits the 3-month mark, of course.

Jill Duggar: Third Pregnancy Revealed?

Prior to that, it's all secrecy and subterfuge, and fans believe Jill Duggar is the latest to attempt and mislead them.

The speculation is based largely on the above photo, posted on Instagram by Jill's husband, Derick Dillard -- and the very strange way in which the image is cropped.

Why is there so much space above Jill and Derick's head?

Is Derick's sloppy editing part of an attempt to hide Jill's abdomen from the world?

It may be quite some time before we find out for certain, but as In Touch Weekly points out, the matter is currently being debated n the comments section of Derick's Instagram page.

"Is that an intentional crop?" asked one fan, who added a string of cry-laughing emojis for emphasis.

Jill Duggar Votes

Others poked fun at the fact that Derick has been fired by TLC, and encouraged him not to pursue photography as a career:

"His job is to procreate and raise closed minded ignorant offspring just as himself," commented one follower.

The pic may be what prompted the most intense scrutiny, but rumors of Jill being pregnant have been circulating for several months now.

Part of the reason for the speculation is the fact that Jill's been maintaining a slightly lower profile than usual.

But mainly the chatter stems from the observation that Jill is no longer breastfeeding, and thus, as a Duggar woman, it's time for Jill to put another bun in the oven.

Of course, as usual, the Duggars' defenders have been just as vocal as their detractors.

Jill Duggar as a Mama

"Seriously don't understand why people are being so mean on here. If you don't like them, fine, but why comment?" wrote one fan on Derick's pic.

"It's the same little nasty trolls with no life that just live to jump on everything the Dillards post," remarked another, adding:

"Satan is keeping his miserable people busy."

Of course, if Jill is expecting, it may be months before she makes her announcement.

The Duggars like to space out their big news, and Jill's brother, Joseph Duggar, just welcomed his first child with wife Kendra Caldwell over the weekend.

Add to that the fact that Jinger Duggar is expecting her first child in a matter of weeks, and it's clear that Jill might be keeping fans in suspense for quite some time.

Pippa Middleton: Yes, I Am Pregnant!!

There's a new, confirmed baby in the Royal Family! Okay, tangentially. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are getting a cousin.

Remember over a month ago when we told you that Duchess Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, is almost definitely pregnant?

You can take out the almost. She is pregnant.

Pippa at the Royal Wedding

34-year-old Pippa Middleton is expecting her first child.

The baby daddy is of course her husband, James Matthews.

The source for this happy news is pretty darn reliable -- because it's Pippa herself.

Announcing what she wrote in a column for Waitrose magazine, Pippa has even more good news.

Her sister Kate's pregnancies are notoriously difficult. She suffers from Hyperemesis Gravidarum and the results are not fun.

That was how we were able to predict that she was pregnant weeks before the official announcement.

Pippa, it seems, is having an easier time.

Pippa Smiles Broadly

The happily expecting mother writes:

"I was lucky to pass the 12 week scan without suffering from morning sickness."

When the news broke on the back end of April that Pippa was telling her close friends, it was reported that this was after the 12 week scan had revealed that everything looked healthy.

"That meant I was able to carry on as normal."

Well ... mostly. She did set about making one significant change to her lifestyle.

"When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realized I needed to adjust my 4 to 5-day-a-week routine."

That's great! We only wish that everyone were in a position to take it easy when they need to concentrate on a pregnancy -- or on their health for any reason.

Pippa Middleton: A Picture

Though Pippa has been confiding the news to those close to her since April, she waited until a week into June to make it public knowledge.

Why? She doesn't say. But we can guess.

First of all, it is always wise to wait until one is further along before sharing the news. Even a few weeks -- or, in this case, more than a month -- can give you more time to be sure that your pregnancy is still healthy.

Second of all, Pippa couldn't have wanted to overshadow her own sister's pregnancy and childbirth.

Kate gave birth to her third child, baby Louis, back in April -- exactly around the time that Pippa began confiding in loved ones.

The following days were full of new revelations and even photos. Pippa wouldn't want to upstage her sister.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews, By The Water

Also, obviously, Pippa couldn't want to distract from her sister's brother-in-law, Prince Harry, as he tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

When there are major royal events underway, you want to put some distance between them and anything else.

And ... while we're on the subject of putting some distance between different pieces of news as they break ... 

Pippa may have had another, more upsetting reason for postponing the announcement.

Pippa's father-in-law was arrested for raping a minor. This was weeks before reports of her pregnancy began circulating.

This has to be a hard time for her and a harder time her her husband.

We can absolutely understand why they might balk at sharing that news in the same month that her father-in-law was arrested.

Pippa Middleton with a Smile

But all of these other events, both happy and grim, aside: this is great news!

Pippa and James are going to welcome their first child, and they're not even pretending that it's a secret anymore.

That must be a real weight off of their shoulders.

Now, they just need to concentrate on a healthy remainder of the pregnancy and a healthy delivery. 

Since the 12 week check-up was reportedly in the back half of April, we can guess that she might be 18 to 20 weeks along. But that is absolutely just an estimation.

If it's correct, then she's about halfway through.

Congratulations to Pippa and James!

Jinger Duggar: Check Out My Cantaloupe of a Baby!

Jinger Duggar is in the home stretch of her pregnancy.

But instead of worrying about the stretch marks to come, this reality star is simply focused on sharing every moment of her journey with fans around the Internet.

Jinger Duggar at 34 Weeks

Duggar once again took to Instagram on Wednesday night and shared a sweet/funny/precious photo of her baby bump, which is really rolling along now and getting close to extinction.

Which is to say:

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo are about to become first-time parents!

Continuing a tradition she started early in her second trimester, Jinger posed yesterday alongside a chalkboard that listed two key pieces of information:

  1. How far along she is in her pregnancy.
  2. What her baby resembles at the moment.

If you recall, Jinger previously explained that her fetus was the size of a pineapple.

At 25 weeks, the TLC personality compared her baby at that stage to the size of a cauliflower.

At 22 weeks? Can you guess? Too late...

... it was akin to a papaya!JSinger simply wrote "#34 weeks" as a caption to this image, along with a baby emoji and a couple heart emojis.

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Throwback

Apparently in a sentimental mood as she counts down the days until she and Jeremy welcome their bundle of joy, Duggar also posted the above snapshot of the famous couple this week.

It's an old picture that recounts a rather monumental day in their lives.

"Throwback to that incredible day the love of my life asked me to be his wife!" wrote Jinger as a caption.

Because she's a Duggar and because the family has a certain set of strict dating rules, this means that Jinger and Jeremy officially agreed to get married on this day AND to have sex for the first time at some point down the line.

Like we said: it was a monumental occasion.

Cradling Jinger

Announced the couple back in early January, upon confirming they were expecting:

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.

Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: We are expecting our first child!

We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.

Jinger Duggar at 7 Months

Oh, and did we mention that Jinger is pregnant with a girl?!?

Because she is.

The reality star passed this news along to their fans in April, saying at the time:

"We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer.

"We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love."

Look for the next Duggar to enter the world in either late July or early August.

How exciting, right?!?
