Big news in celebrity babies and matrimony

Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming)
“Once Upon a Time” co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) confirmed they are expecting a little prince or princess of their own.

A big week in babies and engagements, friends!

First up is Kelly Clarkson, who wasn’t joking when she said she was planning to get started on a family as soon as possible after marrying Brandon Blackstock last month. The singer took to Twitter with some very big news: “I’m pregnant! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever,” she wrote. And if she has her way, the baby will be wearing pink. “I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!,’” she gushed to Parade.

Meanwhile, on the less exclamation-point-use front,  “Once Upon a Time” co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) confirmed they are expecting a little prince or princess of their own. It is not known if Goodwin’s pregnancy will be worked into the plot of the show. Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky also announced that they are expecting their second child together, Hemsworth’s rep confirms. Baby joins big sister, India, who was born in 2012.

And finally, there is no fetus between Adam Brody and Leighton Meester but there is an engagement ring, according to Star magazine. “It was the surprise of her life and she’s ecstatic,” a source says about their surprise engagement (surprise is right, I had no idea they were even dating). “Right now their plan is to get married next summer. They are still deciding if they want a destination wedding or if they’ll marry in southern California somewhere.” How OC of them!
