Kim Kardashian won't allow her baby's birth to be filmed.
The reality TV star is said to be refusing to let cameras for her Keeping Up with the Kardashians show into the delivery room on her big day next month, a stark contrast to her older sister Kourtney, who was seen giving birth to her daughter, Penelope, on the season seven finale of the show.
"Producers want Kim to do the same as Kourtney. It would be a ratings dream and reality television gold. But Kim is refusing it. She doesn't want her fans to see her in that situation... In the birthing suite," a source said.
Kim, 32, and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West are very protective of their unborn daughter and said to be refusing any suggestion of the baby appearing on the family's E! Entertainment show, despite her mother-turned-manager Kris Jenner's pleas. "Kim is very serious about her pledge. She has said, multiple times, that the baby will not be part of the Kardashian reality-television empire," the insider added.
Playboy wants Kim Kardashian to show off her post-pregnancy body for the first time in the adult magazine.
The 32-year-old reality TV star, who is set to give birth to her first child with her rapper boyfriend, Kanye West, early next month, could ink a deal worth more than $1 million to strip off for the publication, which she previously posed naked for in 2007. "They would love for Kim to do Playboy post-baby. They know it would sell like crazy!" a source said.
The insider said that the magazine is "all about" trying to secure the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and would shoot a new spread with her "in a heartbeat."
While Kim and Kanye have already turned down a $3 million offer for the first pictures of their baby from a tabloid magazine, Playboy reportedly has no interest in photographing their child but won't beg the brunette beauty to appear in a spread.
Jennifer Lopez wants to have a baby with Casper Smart.
The 43-year-old "Dance Again" singer - who has five-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony - has allegedly turned to IVF in the hopes of getting pregnant with the 25-year-old back-up dancer.
"She's scared that time isn't on her side with regards to her age. But she's hoping that with fertility treatments she'll be pregnant in the next couple of months," a source said.
The couple reportedly put their plans to wed on hold because they couldn't reach a prenuptial agreement, and are now focused on having a baby. "They argued constantly over it, but Jen has decided to let the issue go and put her trust in him. She's more interested in trying for a baby than planning a wedding right now anyway - and Casper is completely on board," the source added.
Khloe Kardashian has put her baby plans on hold because of all of the recent upheavals in her life.
The former X Factor host - who has not been asked to return for a second season - decided not to focus on starting a family with her husband Lamar Odom yet because she wants some time to focus on her marriage following a stressful year.
"Khloe has put her baby plans on hold for the time being, but that's still on her mind - a lot. She got fired from her hosting show, [she's had] complications getting pregnant, Lamar's basketball game was sloppy. Right now the last thing they need to do is another thing to their plate. Instead they'll just take some time to themselves and recharge," a source said.
However, Khloe, 28, is excited about her 32-year-old sister Kim's pregnancy and plans to support her sister in any way she can. "She will be there to support Kim through it all. She'll be at the hospital," an insider added.
Kim Kardashian may have won the baby shower battle, but it looks as though her baby daddy Kanye West won't be around to see her give birth to their first child.
A source close to the couple have revealed that the rapper won't be present at the hospital when the reality star brings their daughter into the world, on account of him being too squeamish. “He won’t be in the delivery room. Kanye’s very squeamish and doesn’t want to be around blood and pass out. This is Kim’s worst nightmare," said the source.
Considering that the high-profile pair haven't even been with each other for the duration of her pregnancy, it's not all that surprising that the "New Slaves" hitmaker won't be there to see his first kid be born. Or perhaps he just knows that he just might pass out and doesn't want the Keeping Up with the Kardashians crew to film it (he does, after all, kind of hates that show).
Paris Hilton is "so happy" for Kim Kardashian's success.
The blonde socialite first met the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star - who is pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West's baby - in school, long before Kim's career took off and despite feuding over the years, Paris is happy for her pal's achievements and wishes her the best in life.
"I'm so happy for [Kim]. I'm happy for all my friends. I always wish everyone the best. It's important in life, it's important for good karma and I'm so happy to help anyone out. She's always wanted a little princess, I can't wait to see how she dresses her up. It's going to be a beautiful baby," Paris said.
Paris, 32, is also over the moon with her own love life praising her boyfriend River Viiperi, 21, for having "such a big heart." She added, "He's so sweet. He has such a big heart. I trust him so much. I'm really happy."
Kate Winslet is pregnant.
The 37-year-old Contagion actress - who has a 12-year-old daughter, Mia, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton, and a nine-year-old son, Joe from her second marriage to director Sam Mendes - has confirmed she is expecting her first child with her husband Ned Rocknroll.
"Kate and Ned are delighted," a spokesperson for the couple said.
The Oscar-winner, who tied the knot with Ned, who is the nephew of Richard Branson, in a secret ceremony in December, previously revealed she was eager to have at least one more child. In an interview with InStyle in 2006, she said, "I'm hoping to have more kids. I don't know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more."
An insider recently told Star magazine that Ned, 34, was desperate to be a father: "Kate knows how much Ned wants to be a father. She thinks they would have the most adorable kid together, so they're planning on getting pregnant by the end of the year. Having a child together is her absolute priority."
Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant.
The 34-year-old actress has revealed she is expecting her first child with her Client List co-star and boyfriend of 15-months Brian Hallisay. "We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," she said. A source said the actress is approximately three months along and cannot wait to welcome her first child.
The couple reconnected on the set of their hit Lifetime series and began dating last year but they previously worked on the NBC series Love Bites together.
Earlier this year Jennifer admitted she had enquired about the process of freezing her eggs as she was "worried" about ending up childless after a string of failed relationships with musician John Mayer and actors Jarod Einsohn and Jamie Kennedy. "She has been asking a few women she knows about freezing her eggs. [She] feels worried that she will end up single, since none of her relationships have been successful. If it doesn't work out with Brian, then she can still be a mum one day," a source previously said.
Beyonce has deflected a question about her rumored pregnancy.
The "Grown Woman" singer - who has a 14-month-old daughter Blue Ivy with her rapper husband Jay-Z - played coy regarding speculation she is expecting her second child, joking that she hadn't heard about the rumors. When quizzed about reports she is pregnant at the Sound of Change charity concert in London on Saturday, she said with a laugh, "What kind of rumors? What? Huh? I don't know what you're talking about."
After the interview for the Today Show - which aired this morning - host Savannah Guthrie said, "Mystery remains unsolved." Although Beyonce, 31, and Jay-Z, 43, have remained tight-lipped about her rumored pregnancy, the singer appeared to dispel speculation by posting a photo of her and her husband - real name Shawn Carter - enjoying a bottle of wine last week. In the snap, Beyonce can be seen sitting on Jay's lap as she takes a tall sip from her wine glass while the "Run This Town" rapper watches on.
Kim Kardashian has confirmed she is expecting a baby girl. The 32-year-old star - who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West in July - found out the gender of her forthcoming little one at a doctor's appointment for her 19-week check-up, which has now been aired on her reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
During the episode - the eighth season premiere of the program - Kim's mother Kris Jenner asks, "Do you see a little peepee?" Physician Dr. Paul Crane responds, "I don't see any peepees. I'm thinking it's a girl." Kim asks, "What's the percentage?" And Dr. Crane responds, "99 plus." Kim then adds, "99 plus? So I can tell people it's a girl?"
The brunette beauty is delighted to be expecting a girl and admitted Kanye, 35, has "always wanted" a daughter. "I'm so excited we're having a girl. Who doesn't want a girl? I think they are the best. I know that's really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl," she said.
