First came love, then marriage and now Christina Ricci is ready for a baby carriage!

The actress, 34, is expecting her first child with husband James Heerdegen, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The mom-to-be’s pregnancy was revealed as she made her way through Los Angeles International Airport in a belted black dress with Heerdegen on Saturday.

After meeting on the set of her former show Pan Am, Ricci and Heerdegen, a camera technician, went public with their relationship in February 2012, and announced their engagement one year later.

In October, the couple wed in an intimate ceremony at Manhattan’s Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall.

“I can’t wait [to call him], ‘Husband,’ because then I can really throw my weight around,” Ricci joked to PEOPLE before the nuptials.

And soon it will be, ‘Dad!’

Sofia Verga and Nick Loeb Split

Saturday, May 24, 2014

SOFIA Vergara is single again.

The actress has split from her boyfriend Nick Loeb.

The Modern Family actress announced the split with a screenshot of a note on her Who Say account on Friday.

“Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have [decided] to be apart,” she writes.

“We have [been] having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and [because] of my work and now his, its been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore.”

Sofia, 41, says that despite their separation, the two remain good friends.

“We are still very close but we [believe this] is the best thing for us right now,” she adds.

In February, the actress was still deciding on plans for her dream wedding with Loeb, saying she was unsure about the exact details.

“It’s either I do something really big, or I do something really small with Nick and I and my son, and then my mom, and then my cousins, and then it’s impossible,” she told Ellen DeGeneres.

Jordana Brewster: ‘There’s No Such Thing as a Multitasking Mom’

When Jordana Brewster envisioned herself with a baby, she pictured a cool, calm and collected mother.

But while the arrival of son Julian definitely changed the actress, it wasn’t exactly the transformation she had predicted.

“I thought I would be this zen earth mama, but I am more paranoid about things than I used to be,” Brewster, 34, tells Cricket’s Circle.

“People say that once you become a mom you’ll know exactly what to do, but that isn’t necessarily true. I find myself more anxious than before.”

And with good reason! The first-time mom recalls the day her 8-month-old son’s hearty appetite — and love of nature! — took her by surprise. “One day, Julian ate a leaf and then puked it up shortly thereafter,” she shares. “That’s when I realized I have to have my eyes on him at all times.”

Fortunately, keeping a good eye on her little guy is made easier by Brewster’s determination to separate her professional and personal lives.

“There’s no such thing as multitasking as a mom — if you’re answering emails, you aren’t giving the baby the attention he needs,” she explains. “I’m trying to be more mindful and setting aside time to devote myself to work so I can give him my full attention when I am with him.”

Although she admits finding the right balance is “a work in progress,” Brewster already has discovered one big win: The perfect mix of playthings.

Swapping out traditional toys for household items is a fun way to keep Julian actively engaged — and distracted! — says Brewster.

“Take things you already have around the house — a rock, pine cone, paper towel tube — and put them in a bowl or basket for your baby to play with,” she explains. “They love the different textures and once they tire of one, they move on to the next.”

However Brewster isn’t completely against modern-day devices — especially when it comes to soothing her son. Although Julian enjoyed his Nuna Leaf as a baby, he now wants to be “held at all times” — but there’s an app for that.

“The Baby Shusher is a genius invention. At first it felt really lazy, but all that shushing is exhausting!” she says. “There’s also an app, which I used after I dropped and broke the actual shusher.”

Jessica Alba Doesn’t Agree With Family Nannies!

Saturday, May 24, 2014

JESSICA Alba reportedly finds it “unseemly” and “undignified” that people hire strangers to look after their kids.

Sources say the actress hires her family members to help her care for daughters Honor, 5, and Haven, 2 1/2.

“Jessica is really against the idea of people hiring strangers as nannies. She finds it unseemly and undignified,” a source said.

“Instead, Jessica says parents should find a younger member of their extended family to take care of their kids part-time because they are sure to be more loving and connected to them.

“Plus, Jess says an added benefit is that you don’t have to pay family members nearly as much as people you get through employment services!

“Jessica wishes people would find a suitable relative to step in and help out instead, and says such a structure promotes family closeness. Her two cousins work for her as an assistant and a nanny and the situation is working out great for the busy mom.

“She has complete security in knowing that her cousins will love and protect her children as much as she does.”
