Jared Padalecki Expecting Second Child

Jared Padalecki is a pro at hunting down demons, but can double daddy duty be just as easy?

The Supernatural star, 31, and his wife Genevieve Cortese are expecting their second child together, his manager confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Speculation that there was a sibling on the way for son Thomas Colton, 16 months, began when Padalecki cradled Cortese’s beginner bump while walking the red carpet during a Comic-Con event in San Diego, Calif. on Friday.

“We’ve met a lot of new parents with little babies, and a lot of babies seem like babies, but [our son] feels like he’s kind of an old soul,” Padalecki has said of his baby boy.

“He kind of looks at you and tries to figure you out, which is cool. I hope he’s a mature kid.”

Padalecki wed former Supernatural costar Cortese in February 2010 in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Kerri Walsh Jennings Poses Nude While Pregnant – and with Baby

Published June 19, 2014 by gossipzoo

When you compete on a worldwide stage in the skimpiest of bathing suits, how shy can you be?

For beach volleyball Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, the answer came crashingly clear just before her second of two nude photo shoots for ESPN The Magazine.

The first time she stripped down while pregnant; the second was a follow-up session posing in the altogether with her new baby last month, about nine weeks after giving birth.

“Driving there I was sweating bullets,” says Walsh Jennings, 34. “I was really, really nervous. I felt exposed, not just physically, but with all of my insecurities.”

The side-by-side results appear in the magazine’s fifth annual Body Issue, on newsstands Friday, along with nude photos of male and female athletes. The sports range from pro football to golf to tennis.

“When I was offered this opportunity it wasn’t an automatic yes. I had to think about it. I’m my parents’ daughter. I have my husband,” she said. “When I came down to it, I had the opportunity to do something uncomfortable. I think that’s an important part of life. It’s something new. I looked at it as a challenge.”

Walsh Jennings says she gained 36 lbs. on her 6 , 2″ frame while pregnant with her third child, daughter Scout Margery. She’s lost most of it, but is trying for 12 lbs. more.

“I have been working my butt off literally every single day,” she says, preparing for her first post-baby tournament in Switzerland later this month. “I’ve come a long way from April when I had my baby. But I’m definitely not where I would normally be going into my first tournament of the season.”

She’ll also have to adjust to competing without longtime partner Misty May-Treanor, who retired after the pair won their third gold at the London Olympics. After joining interim partner Whitney Pavlik in Switzerland and later in Long Beach, she’ll team with new partner April Ross.

Which means the next few weeks will bring one more temporary tinge of self-consciousness. “Before I get my tan,” she says, “I feel naked.”

Jamie-Lynn Sigler: Why I’d Rather Be Pregnant in Bikini Photos

When mom-to-be Jamie-Lynn Sigler met her fianc Cutter Dykstra in steamy Myrtle Beach, S.C., last week, she didn’t think twice about slipping into a bikini.

Nor did she give much thought to being photographed in it.

“I would probably not be caught in a bikini otherwise, but when you’re pregnant, it is what it is!” she told PEOPLE at her baby shower (benefitting children’s charity Baby Buggy) in New York City Wednesday. “However your body’s carrying is how your body’s carrying.”

The actress, 32, met her fianc , a minor league baseball player, down south while he was there for a game, and says that due to his travel schedule, the couple will probably opt for a staycation, rather than a babymoon before their son’s August arrival.

Meanwhile, as her pregnancy progresses, the process is becoming more exciting for the first-time dad, 23.

“I think as he feels him move and kick it becomes more real,” says Sigler. “We have a couple of [baby] names we’re toying with. We’ll call him one name one week and one name another week. I think we have our favorite, but you never know. We could change our minds when we meet him.”

At the shower – held at Sugar and Plumm on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and the sponsored by Britax/BOB, Hanky Panky, cloud b and Serena & Lily – Sigler and her family and friends dined on salads, veggies, chicken, fries and sliders and an impressive dessert selection. On the menu? The “Earthquake in a Fishbowl:” heaven/hell cake, cheesecake, key lime pie, Brooklyn blackout cake, butterscotch pudding and vanilla, chocolate and salted caramel ice cream.

A.K.A. any pregnant woman’s dream.

As she counts down to her due date, Sigler (who says she’s still feeling good and even wore cute heels to her shower – “I’ll make do for certain occasions,” she jokes) says she’s got good friends to rely on for advice.

Pals Beverley Mitchell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Joanna Garcia Swisher have all recently welcomed daughters.

“My best girlfriend Joanna just had her baby a couple weeks ago and she talked me through her entire [birth] so I know everything that happened – the good, the bad, the ugly and so I’ve got all the pointers,” she says. “She’ll probably be there when I give birth so it’s been nice to have her go through it and get to experience it with her.”

And her son will be one lucky little guy to have so many playmates close in age. Jokes Sigler: “Most of them are little girls so he’ll be like the little prince with his harem!”

Michael Bublé ‘Can’t Wait to Meet This Little Guy’

Michael Buble Baby Due

Michael Bubl ‘s first child- a boy – is due next week, and the nervous dad-to-be is a little jumpy about it.

“We had a false alarm a couple of days ago and she had about seven hours of labor so we know that it could happen at any time,” he told the Associated Press on Wednesday.

So the singer canceled plans to appear on Today last week and is staying close to home in his native Canada with wife Luisana Lopilato.

“I’m about 15-20 minutes away from home. Just in case anything happens, I’m there,” he tells ET Canada, in an interview airing Monday night.

He says that right now “it’s scary” for his wife, an Argentinian actress. “She’s in a country that’s not her country. People are speaking a language that’s not her first language, so I’m her whole family here, so she’s got a good support system.”

Bubl , 37, admits that it’s hard to focus on anything but the impending arrival.

“The truth is, I don’t know what to expect, because obviously I’ve never expected before, so I’m just really actually enjoying it,” he says. “Neither one of us are anxious, we’re just excited. We can’t wait to know what it’s like, we can’t wait to meet this little guy.”

Ali Landry: You Won’t Catch Me on a Cover After Baby

Published September 6, 2013 by gossipzoo

She’s appeared in her fair share of magazines, but former model Ali Landry won’t be caught on their covers showing off her postpartum body after baby arrives.

“It’s frustrating for me when I see moms in Hollywood on a magazine three months after having a baby in a swimsuit. It’s really just not realistic for most moms,” Landry, 39, says in The Bump‘s August issue.

“For me, personally, it takes nine months to put on that weight and it really takes nine months to take it off.”

But while the mom-to-be – she’s due with a baby boy in July – isn’t in a rush to regain her famous figure, Landry is still making an effort to maintain her sense of style with her maternity fashions.

However, the commitment isn’t always so easy – especially when sweats are staring her in the face.

“Part of me wants to wake up in the morning and throw on a big pair of pants – probably my husband’s – and a sweatshirt,” Landry shares. “But when I do that, I look in the mirror and I just don’t feel good about myself. So I really try to pull it all together – and I do feel so much better.”

Before Landry and her husband Alejandro Monteverde welcome their third child together – the couple are already parents to Estela, 6 next week, and Marcelo, 20 months – they are preparing for their son by settling their family into a bigger home.

“We’re bursting at the seams! My kids, Marcelo and Estela, are sharing a room and I want all the children on the same floor as me,” she says.

The fresh start is sure to trigger a certain pregnancy symptom in the expectant actress.

“I have a feeling the nesting is going to come in when I’m packing and unpacking,” she says. “Fortunately, I know that this baby is a boy, and I’ve saved everything from Marcelo, so I’ll be able to reuse a lot of his things.”

As the family of four plan to make the move to their new house, Landry admits there’s someone else who’s not quite ready for the new addition to arrive: soon-to-be big brother Marcelo.

“He wants to be with me all the time and he’s very much still a baby,” she explains. “When I’m around, he clings to me. I might have to call in some of my expert mommy friends to help navigate our way through this.”

As for Estela, she is already envisioning her hairy future with two baby brothers.

“We were at the doctor’s office and the doctor said, ‘How do you like your little brother?’ And she said, ‘He pulls my hair,'” Landry says. “Then the doctor asked, ‘So what do you think about having a new brother?’ And she’s like, ‘I’m going to be bald.'”

The future mom-of-three adds, “I think she knows that double trouble is coming.”

Kim Kardashian: My Baby Will Wear ‘Big Chains and Leather Pants’

Published March 9, 2013 by gossipzoo

Kim Kardashian isn’t due until July, but we already know one thing for sure about the baby: Little Kimye’s wardrobe is going to be way more advanced than our own.

Kim and her sister Kourtney stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, and the talk show host asked if the littlest Kardashian will wear hand-me-downs. But let’s get serious: Are parents who regularly don kilts, capes and fur going to allow their child to be photographed wearing something that’s already been spotted on a different star baby?

“If anyone knows Kanye, they just know how into fashion he is, and I think he’s going to have things, like, specially made,” Kim said. “I don’t think hand-me-downs are going to work. I think it has to be, like, really fun stuff.”

So what does “really fun stuff” entail? Kourtney jokingly chimed in with the answer: “Big chains, leather pants.” And to think we considered Khlo the funny one.

Amanda Beard is set to welcome a new addition to the pool.

The seven-time Olympic medalist and her husband, photographer Sacha Brown, are expecting their second child in July, Beard confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“We are so excited to add to our family! During my first pregnancy, I was sick the whole time and felt awful,” the swimmer, 31, tells PEOPLE.

“So far this pregnancy has been a lot easier. I’ve only been sick a couple of times and I have way more energy.”

Also delighted by the news is soon-to-be big brother Blaise Ray, 3.

“He’s so excited. He keeps telling me how he is going to hug and kiss the baby and help me take care of [him or her],” says Beard.

She jokingly adds, “We will see if that actually happens!”

Beard won two gold, four silver and one bronze medal during her career and is a four-time Olympian. Currently sponsored by Aqua Sphere, she is also the author of the memoir In the Water They Can’t See You Cry.

She and Brown were married in May 2009 on Wakatobi, an archipelago in the Banda Sea off southeastern Indonesia.
