Ah, it appears that a sure sign of the economy is that people are realizing the joy of sex: it’s free! In what appears to be a rise in everyone’s favorite low-to-no-cost indoor contact sport, Hollywood is showing signs of a bit of a baby boom. Here are some of 2009's newest celebrity pregnancies.

Kimora Lee Simmons, CEO of Phat Fashions and E! reality television star of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, actor Djimon Hounsou. This would be the first child between the two of them and Kimora’s third, adding to Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki Lee, 6, her daughters from her previous 10 year marriage to hip hop mogul Russell Simmons. Obviously, this child will be a superhumanly beautiful baby as both Kimora and Djimon have both modeled on the runway and in campaigns. Kimora told Us Weekly last September when asked if she wanted more children, "I would love to. I practice everyday." Atta girl!

In other news, Brothers and Sisters actress Rachel Griffiths is expecting her third child with husband, artist Andrew Taylor. Since Rachel's first son Banjo, 5,has his interesting name, you would have expected the second child to have just as interesting a name. But the couple went with a little more traditional name for her second child , daughter Adelaide Rose, 3, they threw everyone off. We’ll be here on 2009 Best and Worst Baby Name Watch to see if we can get another fun Hollywood baby name from the Australian actress. We trust Perez Hilton will keep watch with us.

Congratulations to the newly expectatnt mothers. Just so you know, Lisa Bonet is already leading the pack for Worst Baby Name of 2009 for her son’s unwieldy moniker. You’re going to have to step up your game to beat her.
