It's out with the old and in with the new for Jennifer Aniston.
Star magazine's latest cover, has the 'world' exclusive claiming to have the skinny on Angelina Jolie's next pregnancy. If you choose to take Star magazine's word for it (hopefully with a big pinch of salt), Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt are expecting baby number # 7, with a "source" claiming, "Angie is two and a half months along."
Annika Sorenstam announced her intentions quit the game of golf to start a family last May (2008). She married Mike McGee this January (2009) and is newly pregnant with their first child. The LPGA legend is among the greatest women to ever play the game but decided that having it all was not possible. Playing at a high level and having a rich family life were just not compatible. Best of luck to her on her next career.
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are said to be engaged (to be married). And it's said that she is pregnant with their second baby. You can therefore imagine her consternation at seeing Tila Tequila flirting with Joel Madden. Nicole Richie then took the law into her own hands and got Tila Tequila to "back off" her man.
The Australian actress bore her first child last year and because she appeared to have a baby bump, gossip hounds assumed that the star of Australia was pregnant again. But her reps claim that the actress is not pregnant with another child. She and Keith Urban make a nice couple. If they want another baby, they deserve it. And who cares if she played the didgeridoo or lost the map to the magical waters of Kununurra?
Weeks after Rihanna and Chris Brown's names became (potentially forever) linked to domestic violence, the couple has apparently rekindled their romance, according to People.com. An unnamed source told the site that the efforts to reconnect have been "mutual" and that the young pair "care for each other." Feelings aside, the world will watch in wonderment as Rihanna takes back a man who allegedly beat her on the night of February 8. Brown was arrested for making criminal threats, but charges have not been pressed.
Oxytocin is quite a busy hormone. When released in the brain, it facilitates sex, orgasm, birth and breastfeeding, as well as feelings of bonding, connection and trust. In her forthcoming book The Chemistry of Connecton: How the Oxytocin Response Can Help You Find Trust, Intimacy and Love, author and journalist Susan Kuchinskas describes the important role oxytocin plays in our love lives and how we can train our brain to better respond to love. In other words, we weren't born knowing how to love—we learn it.
In a classic, made for Maury tale, Alfie (just 12 at the time) impregnated Chantelle, then helped her hide the pregnancy until her mom noticed her bump. The parents of these two baby-having babies came together to support the scenario, and are allowing the pair to have sleepovers as they struggle to raise their infant. Alfie's dad notes that the kid still seems completely confused by the situation, which makes total sense BECAUSE HE IS ONLY THIRTEEN. Dad says, "I will talk to him again and it will be the birds and the bees talk. Some may say it's too late but he needs to understand so there is not another baby."
We may be off-base here, but it sure looked like MIA was pregnant at the Grammys the other day. It turns out that the "Paper Planes" singer was due that day but decided to rock it out with the likes of Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye West and TI. Her fiancee, Benjamin Brewer of The Exit, had to have been OK with the decision. Also, it looks like Lil Wayne may be engaged. That guy is awesome.
In a recent study, Swiss researchers took sweat samples from men and women's armpits, mixed them with the enzymes from bacteria normally found there and discovered that men smell like cheese and women smell like grapefruits or onions. That's right: grapefruit or onion. So, if your man's ever been tempted to sprinkle sugar on you in the morning or sauté you in olive oil for taco night, there you have it.
New mothers rarely boast that giving birth is as satisfying as the quickie that left them with forty extra pounds, stretch marks and–of course –a bundle of joy. However, Orgasmic Birth, Debra Pascali-Bonaro’s new documentary (completely unrelated to sadomasochism, by the way) is quickly closing the public’s perception of a nine-month gap between pleasure and pain. The film follows 11 pregnant women in their exploration of various labor options, and ultimately asserts that childbirth can be as sexually stimulating as the child’s conception–and even result in orgasm.
We like our standard booty calls to be our hottest, most talented ex-boyfriend. But The Booty Caller, text messages from babycenter.com to alert us when we're ovulating and likeliest to get pregnant, is a close second! The Booty Caller will text you 18 times, 3 times per menstrual cycle, and let you know when you're ovulating. It's a free service but you must register with the site to get the goods. You'll receive messages like "Your fertile window opens today and lasts 5 more days" or "Today is your last fertile day! If you get pregnant during this cycle, your due date will be on or around 6.25.2009." If you're trying to get pregnant, you now know when to attack your partner when he or she gets home. But if you're NOT trying to get pregnant, it's still brilliant. For those of us with no intentions of making beh-behs anytime soon, The Booty Caller could be a organizational godsend. Who has the time or good sense to keep track of your fertile days in your daily planner, anyway?Then you can triple-bag it (kidding) or perhaps try the backdoor instead. Especially if we're going to play Russian roulette by having condomless sex (which may or may not be the new engagement ring!), we want to know precisely when we're going to get shot.
