Laura Linney, the award-winning actress who played a mom battling terminal cancer on Showtime’s The Big C, is now a mother in real life at age 49.

“Laura gave birth to a healthy boy named Bennett Armistead on January 8,” Raha Lewis, a writer for People, told ABC News ... to the shock of everyone.

This is her first child with husband of three years, Marc Schauer. Despite their life in the limelight, for the entire term of her pregnancy, Linney kept it secret.

“Not many people knew she was pregnant, but we know she’s home now enjoying being a mother,” said Lewis of Linney, who was last seen publicly in June.

In September, she took home an Emmy for best actress in a miniseries or movie but wasn’t there to accept her award. Perhaps now we know why.

“Laura couldn’t be here tonight. She’s such a great actress that she didn’t even need to show up,” Matt Damon joked while presenting the award.

Just shy of 50 years old, Linney joins a growing list of older Hollywood A-list moms like Salma Hayek (41) Halle Berry (47) and Kelly Preston (48).

Congratulations to the happy family!

Did Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade actually cheat on Gabrielle Union when he got another woman, Aja Metoyer, pregnant earlier this year?

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade

Earlier this week, just days after Wade and Union got engaged, the NBA player confirmed he fathered a love child while the two were on a break.

Wade said the two "worked through" the issue privately, and that he has known the woman, Metoyer, for many years and that this was a "blessing."

But were Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union really broken up nine months before Aja Metoyer gave birth to Dwyane's son, Xavier, on November 10?

If so, it didn't last long.

On February 1, just about nine months before the love child's birth, Gabrielle posted a romantic photo of the pair together for a "Flashback Friday."

On February 5, Gabrielle was Instagramming about Dwyane, posting a photograph of the NBA star and her dog Sasha, calling him her "boyfriend."

Pregnancy is a wonderful thing, but as Snooki tells pregnant BFF JWoww in a text message conversation she shared publicly, it can also be a literal pain.

"Sleep safe and keep hydrated, no Advil or Aleve," Snook texted in an exchange with JWoww Christmas night. "No pushing on the toilet either."

"Yes mom!" replied JWoww (a.k.a. Jenni Farley).

Potential hemorrhoids aside, Farley, 27, made it clear she's over the moon to be expecting her first child next year with her fiance Roger Mathews.

Her longtime love got JWoww pregnant recently, as confirmed by an online greeting card with a photo of the ultrasound. The Jersey Shore alum wrote:

"We are so excited to share this new chapter of our lives with you as we become parents and create more memories with a new addition to our family!"

Former Jersey Shore star Snooki pulls no punches in her new book Baby Bumps about media coverage of celebrities who are pregnant and/or new parents.

  1. Yes, Snooki wrote a book and it's called that.
  2. She cites Kim Kardashian as an example.

Speaking about the coverage she received in 2012, she writes, "tabloid monitoring of how fast women lose the baby weight is practically a blood sport."

"Some women have been mocked cruelly for it," she adds.

“If you weren’t on the cover of In Touch Weekly in a bikini within two months of giving birth to talk about your salsa workout, you were a fat, lazy loser.”

Jenelle Evans has posted a pair of pictures of her baby bump that suggest, indirectly, that she was probably drinking while pregnant a few months ago.

In addition to a snapshot of herself working out with her unborn child at the gym, she also posted a photo of herself, naked in the tub, on Instagram.

“Me and the baby just relaxing,” Evans captioned the pic, in which her tattoo reading ”Cela Passera Aussi" (or "This Too Shall Pass") is clearly visible.

Naturally, her nude baby bump can be seen protruding from the bubbles in the bath. Just magical. There's just one thing about the bump, though ...

  • Jenelle Evans Nude Baby Bump

When she confirmed she was pregnant with her second child this month, she received a lot of backlash from fans regarding whether or not she's sober.

Naturally, this being Jenelle Evans, speculation ran rampant that she had been drinking and doing drugs during her pregnancy. Not out of the question.

An 82 year old Colombian woman went to the doctor complaining that her stomach hurt. Doctors found a 40-year old fetus, calcified, inside her abdomen.

So many odd "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" thoughts happening right now.

The 40-year-old fetus was the result of an ectopic pregnancy, which occurs when the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus. These pregnancies aren't viable and most of the time are caught by doctors and removed.

But in about 300 cases since 1582, a lithopedion, i.e. a "stone baby," has formed.

Kate Middleton's official portrait, unveiled this year, was weird enough. This one?

Much less official. Totally unauthorized. Even weirder. Equally discussion-worthy.

From the warped imagination of 25-year-old portrait artist Nick Lord comes this, a portrait in which a heavily pregnant Duchess of Cambridge wears lingerie on a bed.

Not exactly the Kate Middleton bikini photos from her first trimester, is it?

Kate Middleton Lingerie Portrait

Hot? Magical? Disturbing? A little from columns A, B and C? Hard to say.

Amazingly, Lord just won the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year competition last night for his portrait of Iraq war veteran Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry.

That particular painting will be displayed in the National Portrait Gallery.

Yes ... the man who painted the above image of Kate Middleton also has a painting in the National Portrait Gallery. This world just got a little happier to us.

His next subject? Hilary Mantel, the author of Wolf Hall. We have got to think she's penning historical fiction in her trashiest lingerie right now in preparation.

Is Julia Roberts pregnant again? The speculation is swirling after she was spotted in Los Angeles with her stomach hanging out of a baggy sweater.

Julia was with her husband, cameraman Danny Moder, at his parents' home in L.A., when the infamous picture was snapped an the rumors began.

The couple has three children, and at age 46, one would assume she's not expecting any more, but at the same time, the picture speaks volumes.

Check out the image from this week at the end of the photo slideshow (which includes some from her past pregnancies) here and see for yourself:

She certainly wouldn't be the first star to get pregnant in their early or even mid-40s. Halle Berry, Uma Thurman, Mariah Carey and Madonna all come to mind.

Roberts also looked a lot different when seen in public earlier this fall.

Julia's rep has not commented on the topic, so until then, we ask:

First fitness blogger Caroline Berg Eriksen caught internet-flack for being too toned four days after giving birth and showing off her amazing physique.

Now she's under fire for the tiny baby bump she sported at nine months pregnant. 

Caroline Berg Eriksen's Tiny 9 Month Baby Bump

Yes, she really is nine months pregnant in that photo. Yes, that's probably what Kim Kardashian looked like at nine days pregnant.

No, that comment isn't meant to be disparaging to either mother.

Reality star Kim Zolciak has shed the post-baby weight in not a lot of time. Just two weeks after giving birth to twins, she looks like her old self again.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star welcomed a baby boy and baby girl with husband Kroy Biermann on November 25. Would you ever have known?

Kim Zolciak Post-Baby Body Photo

If you recall the Kim Zolciak baby bump photos from earlier this fall, the above post-baby selfie (sent to her daughter Brielle, 16) is even more noteworthy.

"My belly is almost gone!!!" she wrote before sending the pic, which shows her standing in front of a mirror. "Damn u got good genes! Ur lucky."

Not Caroline Berg Eriksen genes ... but good genes just the same.

Brielle tweeted a screen-grab of the exchange, to which her mom jokingly replied, "U wud post my texts." A little while later, the teen shared the photo.
