Three Sports Couples Expecting Babies
It seems like every week a new sports star couple is expecting a child. When a new star announces the news of an impending arrival, fans everywhere start buzzing. There seems to be a baby boom in the world of sports.
Here are a few of the sports stars who are expecting a baby this year:
Jay Cutler & Kristin Cavallari
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his actress fiancee Kristin Cavallari recently announced that they are expecting their first child. The couple has seen their share of ups and downs during the course of their relationship, and since the pregnancy announcement, they have received backlash for Cutler allegedly having dumped Cavallari last summer. The couple has asked the public to let it go and let them enjoy the news of their impending arrival.
Hilary Duff & Mike Comrie
Former Disney starlet Hilary Duff and hockey star husband Mike Comrie are expecting a little boy in March. Duff and Comrie have talked about having children for quite some time and are excited to be welcoming their baby boy into the world very soon. Duff has been taking Pilates classes in Los Angeles to help her relax and to promote her and her unborn baby's health. The couple should be meeting their son anytime now, and Duff prepared for her birth photos with new brunette locks.
Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson
Reality star and singer Jessica Simpson and her football star partner Eric Johnson are expecting a bundle of joy early this year. No one knows for sure when the pop star is due, but from the looks of it, it could be any day. Simpson has been growing by the minute as her pregnancy has progressed. Simpson seems to be active still, seen out and about, running errands and shopping. From the way she looks, she could be due any time, but the starlet doesn't seem to be slowing down yet, so baby might not be expected for a little while longer.
Simpson has, however, gotten a lot of backlash regarding her food choices during pregnancy, especially considering Simpson is supposed to be representing Weight Watchers soon. Buttered pop-tarts and macaroni and cheese certainly don't look like a balanced approach to nutrition!
Simpson recently posted to Twitter that after she gives birth her goal is to look like Jessica Alba.
