Ashlee Simpson is pregnant with another baby, Star Magazine reports, adding that its source says the singer is "just a few weeks along" and is "beyond thrilled."

Still, Jessica Simpson's useless sibling is opting to keep the news private "for at least two more months" before sharing it with the celebrity gossip media.

The mag says Ashlee hopes that baby #2 will make her and Pete closer as his grinding with skanks hectic schedule has put a strain on their relationship.

A foolproof plan if ever there were one.

"... She loves Pete and wants to hang on to him. She believes this second baby will really clinch the deal," the celebrity gossip source reportedly writes.

If you believe what you read online, Ashlee Simpson is knocked up and excited about it. But unlike his wife, Pete Wentz is not yet ready to father a second child.

"He absolutely loves Ash and Bronx Mowgli," claims the tabloid when referring to how the Fall Out Boy bass player feels toward Ashlee and their baby boy.

"But he also loves his freedom. He thinks a second kid could change things for the worse. He doesn't want to be tied down and stuck at home all the time."

No official confirmation (or denial) has been made by Team Wentz concerning the report of her new pregnancy, or the couple's supposedly rocky marriage.

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz were longtime lovers before making it official in May 2008. They welcomed the arrival of son Bronx Mowgli in November.

The Circus is traveling abroad - and so are Sean Preston and Jayden James!

Kevin Federline's longtime attorney tells E! News that K-Fed and his ex-wife Britney Spears will be extending their current custody arrangement when her blockbuster striptease show new album tour crosses the Atlantic.

What that means is Federline will also be making the trek to Europe so that Spears can continue to be close to their sons Sean and Jayden, 3 and 2. No word on how much he will get paid for his time - but dude needs the cash!

"They worked out an arrangement to facilitate her being able to go on tour without having to sacrifice her ability to see the kids," Mark Vincent Kaplan says.

"She'll go on tour, she'll go to the venues, but Kevin will be there with the kids. There won't be any change in custody in Europe or anywhere she's on tour."

The once-estranged exes first hammered out a modified joint custody deal when Britney Spears embarked on her Circus tour in March 3 in New Orleans.

"Kevin is happy with how the kids are doing, and he's happy that he's been able to work out an arrangement where Britney is pursuing her professional goals, and Kevin is rooting for her every step of the way," Kaplan says.

He was also rumored to have nailed Britney backstage at one of the shows, to the dismay of current girlfriend Victoria Prince, but we'll chalk that one up as a rumor.

As for how Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline are handling the whole situation, "The kids are great, they're really happy," Kaplan stated. "They are both very well-adjusted kids, as well-adjusted as you can expect."

"They will always push the envelope, but I think that they have the absolute privilege of having two parents who absolutely love them. Everyone has worked for making sure that they're not a product of all of the attention and commotion."

As for Victoria Prince, Kaplan wouldn't confirm whether she'd be a member of the overseas entourage, but he says she, Sean and Jayden "have a good relationship."

The Circus Starring Britney Spears is off to London for eight gigs at O2 Arena, after which it's off to Dublin, Paris, Stockholm, etc., before ending July 26 in Berlin.

Saturday Night Live star Maya Rudolph is expecting her second child with her partner, director Paul Thomas Anderson, she revealed in an interview on ET Canada.

"I wasn't planning on sharing it, but yes I am pregnant!" she said.

As for playing a pregnant woman in this summer's movie, Away We Go, followed by actually being pregnant, she says, "I know it's really weird timing."

Already mom to daughter Pearl, 3, Maya says her current pregnancy is "totally different" than the first one she and Paul Thomas Anderson experienced.

"The first time you are wide-eyed: 'What are we doing? How do we take care of them?' But this time, I'm like, 'I have to sit down, I'm pregnant.'"

She adds, "When you have a three-and-a-half-year-old, you don't have time to rest and nap and do all the those sweet pampering type things you did for yourself the first time. You are just like, 'okay, I got to get to bed!'"

"I feel like everyone who has had more then one [child], says you should go for it and have [a second child]. It's nice to have this experience."

Congrats to the expectant couple on the big news! Follow the link to check out our gallery of recent (and older) celebrity baby pictures!

Seal got Heidi Klum pregnant a couple of months ago. Now he's revealed the sex of his wife's fourth baby - a girl! - on a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

"She can't keep a secret," said Seal, who confirmed they're expecting a girl, and who first announced they were pregnant again at a NYC concert in April.

In Klum's first interview about her pregnancy, she revealed that she was hoping for a girl: "We'd be happy with either, but it would be a lie if I said we all weren't hoping for a little girl - especially Leni, she would love to have a little sister."

Either way, she's gonna have some gorgeous genes ...

The Project Runway host and Seal are currently raising a serious brood: Leni, 5 (whose dad is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore), Henry, 3, and Johan, 2.

The couple is celebrating their fourth anniversary this Sunday.

"We're going to get married again," Seal said. "This is going to be our fourth anniversary. The fifth time, and I'm not quite sure what the theme is."

"You know what my wife's like," he added. "She's always got a trick up her sleeve, but it's going to be a good get-together, you know, lots of friends."

Finally! News about a mother giving birth to multiple children at once that isn't Octomom or Kate Gosselin! Sorry, that was a bit of a weak intro.

Anyway, it's twice the baby joy for actress Julie Bowen, who some of our staff has been crushing on since her stint on like 10 shows. She's pretty.

Sam Alexis Woods and Charlie Axel Woods

She's merely a few hours old right now, but Chyler Leigh's third child (and second daughter) is already displaying one talent – perfect timing!

Leigh, 27, and her husband, actor Nathan West, 30, welcomed their daughter Anniston Kae just seven days after she wrapped filming the fifth season of Grey's Anatomy, according to the actress' rep: "Both mother and child are healthy."

Rielle Hunter Baby: Frances Quinn Hunter

Anniston Kay, who weighed 7 lbs., 1 oz., joins Noah Wilde, 5, and Taelyn Leigh, 2. And watch out Octomom - Chyler hasn't ruled more kids yet.

"We love our family," West said back in November. "If I wasn’t working as much and [Chyler] didn't have the show, we'd have five or six kids."

Grey's Anatomy star Chyler Leigh has three children with her husband, Nathan West, as of this afternoon. With pictures like this, you can certainly see how.

The couple, who met at a pilot audition 10 years ago and co-starred on 7th Heaven, will celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary later this year.

Chyler Leigh "is a phenomenal actress and an amazing best friend, but hands down, mothering is what she does best," her doting hubby added.

Congrats to Chyler and Nathan!

Having just announced that she's four months pregnant with husband Chris Ivery, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo smiled and showcased the beginnings of a baby bump as she shopped in Hollywood with a friend over the weekend.

The star stopped into Joan’s on Third and looked at furniture at Cisco Home. Here's Pompeo along with her husband, who she married in 2007 ...

THE REAL McDREAMY: Patrick Dempsey may have her heart on television, but Ellen Pompeo's true, longtime love is fellow Boston-area native Chris Ivery.

The 38-year-old's character, Meredith Grey, is all set to finally marry Derek Shepherd, a.k.a. McDreamy, on Thursday's Grey's Anatomy. Does Pompeo's real-life pregnancy coinciding with this event mean a McBaby will be in the works?

In an interview this morning on CBS' The Early Show, Malawi native James Kambewa is again voicing his opposition to pop superstar Madonna's efforts to adopt his three-year-old daughter, Chifundo "Mercy" James.

"I want to take care of her and I'm capable to take care of my baby," says Kambewa, who is only 15 himself. "Mercy, she is a Malawian - so [I] need her to grow as a Malawian, as well with our culture."

In the CBS interview, Kambewa is wearing a necklace he made bearing his daughter’s name but says has never held or even met her in person.

The little girl's birth mother died shortly after childbirth.

Lucy Chekechiwa, Mercy’s maternal grandmother, says she, too, was initially opposed to the adoption but eventually gave in. Madonna was negged in her efforts by the country's government, however, before filing an appeal.

“I did not want my granddaughter to be adopted,” Lucy says, “but because they have been persistent enough, I have been forced to let my granddaughter go."

Madonna will make her appeal before Malawi's Chief Justice Lovemore Munlo. In April, a judge rejected the 50-year-old superstar's adoption request because she doesn't meet the minimum 18-month residency requirement.

Here's hoping Jesus Luz will comfort her if she fails again.

Even though Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding only took place a week ago now, there's already talk of the gruesome twosome starting a family.

"Heidi wants four boys," new sister-in-law Stephanie Pratt told Us at the grand opening of Catch Boutique in L.A. "Imagine ... four Spencer Pratts!"

Yes. Imagine.

Does Spencer's sister, who was a bridesmaid in The Hills wedding event along with Holly Montag, think that Heidi Montag will make a good mom?

"Yeah, she's really good with our niece," Stephanie said, referring to Ava, the flower girl at Speidi's wedding. "They're [both] kid lovers."

Stephanie Pratt, who said she had never been to a wedding before Spencer and Heidi's Saturday nuptials, thought the ceremony was "wonderful."

"It was the most - I didn’t think they could be that beautiful," she said, adding that her absolute favorite moment of the evening was, "for me, it was walking down the aisle - which wasn’t that long of an aisle - and I felt so nervous!"

"I had to walk slow, but I was running down it and crying, with my brother laughing at me because I could not keep it together. I’ll never forget that."

Even Steph and Spencer's parents, Skip and Janet Pratt, got choked up.

"They’ve always loved Heidi," she said. "My mom was very emotional. He’s her only boy."

Truly, so touching. We can't wait to watch it unfold on The Hills' finale. Don't forget to give us your funniest Speidi jokes in our Caption Contest.
