Expectant Celebrities: More News on 2009 Celebrity Pregnancies
As always, there is always Hollywood baby news to be shared. A number of celebrities expanded their families last year, and this year looks to be no different. With all the news of celebrities expecting babies so far this year we have a lot of news to look forward to for the rest of 2009.
First up, 44 year Hank Azaria is set to become a father for the first time. His girlfriend Katie Wright is pregnant with a baby boy. His representative Stan Rosenfield was quoted as saying on People.com, “They’re quite ecstatic.” According to reports the couple is now shopping for a new home for their expanding family.
Azaria voices a number of characters in the long running animated series, The Simpsons. He has also done a number of big screen films including 1998’s Godzilla, and the Ben Stiller movie Along Came Polly in 2004. He was previously married to actress Helen Hunt.
Duane Martin and Tischa Campbell-Martin are now expecting their second child. The couple’s first child Xen is eight years old. The news was recently confirmed by her friend and frequent co-star Tichina Arnold. “She just found out and is so excited,” Arnold is quoted as saying. “She hopes to have a girl this time, and has said she would love to name her Derek. She has been wanting a girl for almost six years.”
I’m not sure if she was joking about the name Derek, but this is certainly good news for the couple. They have been married since August 1996. Campbell-Martin who has been in front of the cameras since she was eight, is probably best remembered for her role in the sitcom Martin, co-starring Martin Lawrence.
And in a move that may bring new focus to single motherhood, model and actress Angie Everhart would like to use her pregnancy as the basis for a reality show. According to reports she is now 14 weeks pregnant but has so far declined to reveal the identity of the father.
Everhart was previously engaged to actor Joe Pesci, but they broke up in April 2008. She was quoted as saying on the issue, “The dad is very nice and he’s very excited about it, but we are not a couple. It’s nobody you know.” It’s quite likely that if the show does get off the ground people may tune in just to see if she does indeed reveal his identity.
As yet there have been no takers on her proposed show, but she is still shopping it around. “I decided to do a show about me being a single, strong, healthy and good-spirited woman who is having a baby on her own. I want to show the positive aspects of women who do it on their own,” she said. If this can bring more attention to the issue of single parenting it might not be a bad idea.
It is hoped that these pregnancies will go well for these expectant parents. The first timers will experience soon enough the joy that only a baby can bring.
