The news about Ryan Gosling becoming a father soon took everyone by surprise. And not because they wouldn’t have seen it coming, but because his longtime girlfriend, Eva Mendes, actually did a great job in disguising her pregnancy for over six months.
How could she have been pregnant without the entire world being au courant? By some unwritten, universal law, celebrity needs a mandate from the people in order to get something done. Yes, even children! Ok, so you were really surprised by Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes expecting their first child together! Let’s review who else is pregnant so you get the ‘know-it-all’ advantage in front of the social media (and everyone around you):
Rachel Bilson is very much pregnant and expecting her first child (rumoredly a girl) with her longtime boyfriend, Hayden Christensen. Seeing that they’ve been ever-so-discrete with their relationship, it’s actually a wonder that the world found out about this pregnancy!
Scarlett Johansson is also heavily pregnant, expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Dauriac. Rumors about her Black Widow character being also pregnant in the next Avengers seem unfounded (collective bummer – who wouldn’t want a lil’ Black Widow Hawkeye love baby? – thank you Joss Whedon for taking that away from us).
Mila Kunis is expecting her first child with Ashton Kutcher – the baby is due any day now as Mila was serious competition to Jessica Simpson’s everlasting pregnancy & healthy pregnant proportions giving way to rumors placing not one but two babies on the way for Mila and Ashton!
Lake Bell is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Scott Campbell (famous tattoo artist, so do expect a baby name tattoo in the nearest future for either Lake or Scott).
Hayden Panettiere is expecting her first child with on-and-off boyfriend/fiancé Wladimir Klitschko. In case the wee one is going to be a boy, strong chances that Hayden may be the mother of world’s next boxing champ (father Wladimir is the heavyweight boxing champion).
Kelly Rowland is pregnant expecting her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon and she apparently already chose the baby’s first Air Jordans… (awww!)
Pregnant and expecting their second child are Doutzen Kroes withher husband Sunnery James, Shakira and husband Gerard Pique, Rosamund Pike and partner Robie Uniacke, Alyssa Milano with husband David Bugliari, Christina Aguilera with boyfriend Matthew Rutler, Sibi Blazic and husband Christian Bale.
The list is still open as I’m sure there are others who are happily expecting out there, with or without or consent!
