Kim Stewart announces she's carrying the actor's child. Who knew?
Sure, we dish on celebrity baby news all the time. But this last one, we'll admit, is a total doozy: Kimberly Stewart, the daughter of singer Rod Stewart is carrying the baby of Oscar-winning actor Benicio Del Toro.
HUH? That should be your next question to express your sheer confusion, 'cause we know it was ours.
Next, you're probably trying to remember when there were rumors of them actually being a couple. Well, so were we, and none of our searching revealed any missed stories. So we're guessing this was an old fashioned Hollywood hook-up done quite well, on the downlow and everything!
But, to bring us into a cold reality, Del Toro's publicist confirmed it with the E! Online, saying: "Benicio is the father and is very supportive. Although they are not a couple, they are looking forward to the arrival of the baby."
Well, this is interesting. They seem to us to run in such different circles (and had such different mates), we're wondering exactly what was going on in Hollywood the night these two got together to make their future child.
In any case, we don't know that we're seeing a love match now that a baby's in the picture—but Benicio owning their situation is quite the mature thing to do. Although now we're curious what a mix of their genes will create...
We'll go out on a limb and say that this is one baby that many celebrity followers (ourselves included) will be waiting for. And, if the kid inherits the genes from mom and dad's sides of the family, they'll bound to be at least a double threat.
Come to think of it, we're starting to appreciate this union already...
