“the last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again. 1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as u can see!) we have another on the way. Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still,” Teigen captioned an Instagram post of her baby bump. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing.

A source told Page Six at the time that Khloé and Tristan, who share 4-year-old daughter True, are not back together and haven’t spoken since December 2021 other than about co-parenting. Multiple sources also told the site that the baby was conceived via surrogate before Tristan confirmed he had fathered a son with Maralee Nichols in December 2021.

“Khloé and Tristan already had the baby in the works when the scandal hit. By then, Khloé was just like, ‘I’m going to be doing it by myself'” Page Six’s source said.

We had just gone through IVF. We had embryos on ice. We had a plan. I think when you least expect it and there’s no stress in your life, the world just brought us what was meant to be. I’m so excited that it happened like this.” She continued, “When we first started dating three years ago, we went into our relationship not planning on having children together. I really love being a bonus mom to Taylor and Brayden. They’re such incredible kids and I love them so much. But as your love grows more and more and you fall deeper in love with someone and you build this life together, I started picturing myself having a child with Tarek. I started thinking I just wanted to create something with the man that I’m in love with.”
Heather is a stepmother to Tarek’s children with his ex-wife Christina Hall. Tarek has two children, Taylor, 11 and Brayden, 6. Tarek was elated about the announcement. “I’m just obsessed with my kids. They’re my everything, so having another one is just icing on the cake. I’m so excited,”
Nick Cannon & Abby De La Rosa
“The stork is on the way!” Nick Cannon confirmed that he’s expecting more children during a June 2022 episode of Angela Yee’s Lip Service podcast.

Let’s just put it this way—the stork is on the way.” He went on to suggest, “if you thought the numbers I put up in 2021,” were a lot, just wait and see in 2022.
In 2021, Cannon welcomed twins Zion and Zillion with model Abby De La Rosa in June. Later that month, he welcomed his son, Zen, with Alyssa Scott.

The Hills alum opened up about her troubles conceiving a second child after the birth of Gunner. “I just felt like something was missing. I felt like a person was missing in our family that I had this intense love for. And I kept praying about it. I’m like, if I’m not meant to have another kid — because I had accepted that at this point — I just wanted to not have that desire so strongly and I just wasn’t sure if it was going to happen or not. I just get so emotional about it.”
Heidi’s husband Spencer Pratt expressed his excitement for the new baby and the journey it took to conceive a second baby. “Heidi has been crying a lot,” he told Us Weekly. “It’s like every month, ‘Here we go.’ I was like, ‘If it happens, it happens.’ But Heidi didn’t want to do it that way. It was so long at this point I don’t know if I have any emotion left because it was very challenging.”

If 2 are in there … I might just loose it 😬😬😬😬😬😬 … I obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money 💴 shot of me 📸 like they unfortunately already have … it’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … I have to say it is absolutely horrible 😔 … women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her … but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret 🤫 😬😬😬 … This time I will be doing yoga 🧘♀️ every day !!!

During a court hearing in June 2021, Britney accused her father and conservator, Jamie Spears, of putting an IUD inside her against her will to prevent her from having another child.“I would like to progressively move forward and I want to have the real deal, I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby, I have a (IUD) inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant,” she said at the time. “I wanted to take the (IUD) out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children – any more children. So basically, this conservatorship is doing me waaay more harm than good.”

Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma. Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes. …and then we drank each other’s blood.”

How do I share this?'” he said on his talk show in January 2022. “No one, we didn’t Zen to pass away … All of the news was so unexpected.”
