Celebrity Baby Update for Bowen and Sullivan, and a Denial From Kidman
Boston Legal star Julie Bowen revealed last year that she was pregnant. According to the most recent reports, she is expecting twins. Oliver, the first child of Bowen and her husband Scott Phillips will be a happy big brother come spring.
Bowen’s hit series wrapped last year after a four year run. Don’t expect her to be too busy onscreen anytime soon. She will however appear in Crazy on the Outside in 2010, directed by Tim Allen.
Actress Nicole Sullivan is also expecting. Sullivan and her husband Jason Packham are looking forward to the birth of their second son. Their first son Dashel was born in 2007. Sullivan was quoted as saying, “Jason and I are beyond thrilled to share our amazing news with everyone.”
Sullivan is best known for her work on Mad TV, where she lampooned famous people like Hilary Clinton, and King of Queens which co-starred Kevin James. Now she has her own show on the Lifetime network called Rita Rocks. There are plans to write the pregnancy into the show, as Sullivan said, “I am so thankful that the wonderful team at Lifetime is embracing this, and will be including my pregnancy into the Rita Rocks storyline.”
Sullivan has kept herself pretty busy with guest appearances in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Party of Five and Suddenly Susan to name a few. She will also appear in the film 17 Again due for release in April.
While these actresses are happily sharing their baby news with the world, actress Nicole Kidman has been forced to deny rumors that she is expecting another baby. Her reps have come out saying there’s no truth to the rumors. Apparently the buzz started when she was seen with her arms over her stomach at recent events. One report claimed that Kidman “tenderly stroked her stomach as she posed for snaps” while promoting her movie Australia in Japan.
Congratulations to both Julie Bowen and Nicole Sullivan. And where Kidman is concerned, I hope that if she does have any plans to give Sunday Rose a brother or sister, she will be able to share the news at a time of her own choosing.
