Guess Who's Pregnant...

Ok, these might take a moment to digest, so brace yourself. I'll start with the slightly less shocking celebrity-pregnancy-revelation just to build up the suspense, shall I?
Lily Allen is pregnant
Much like Jessica Alba, I did not see this one coming. I like Lily Allen, a lot, and I think she's going to make a great mum to be honest -- but I'm just really...surprised, for some reason.
Lily, 22, has been seeing the father of her baby, The Chemical Brothers singer Ed Simons, 37, since September.

"As the pregnancy is at a very, very early stage, the couple ask that you respect their privacy, as the health of Lily and their child is their paramount concern."
says they're rep.

And now for the shocking celebrity-pregnancy-revelation that takes the cake (possibly the all-time cake)...

Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant
Fallen of your chair yet?
Jamie Lynn (who is apparently more than 12 weeks into her pregnancy) and mother Lynne have given OK! magazine an exclusive interview, revealing that the 16 year old sister of Britney is keeping her baby. The starlet insists that her somewhat-long-term-boyfriend Casey Aldridge, 19, is the father. Lynne Spears was set to release a parenting book, giving inside details on raising her two star-struck daughters, but the release of the book has been postponed indefinitely.

"We respect Jamie Lynn's decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn's well being."
Nickelodeon released this statement soon after the announcement.

I'm sure that was an earful, but it most definitely was not the first time a pregnancy announcement(s) was made this year. If 2006 is being called the Year of Celebrity Babies, then 2007 has been the Year of Celebrity Pregnancy Announcements.
Here's the 2007 celebrity-pregnancy-revelations timeline (just off the top of my head):
  • Julia Roberts
  • Naomi Watts
  • Milla Jovovich
  • Salma Hayek
  • Emma Bunton
  • Isla Fisher
  • Nicole Richie
  • Keri Russell
  • Halle Berry
  • Christina Aguilera
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Cate Blanchett
  • Jessica Alba
  • Jamie Lynn Spears
  • Lily Allen
I'm sure I left out heaps. Can you think of anyone else?

Catch.
