Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr Thinking Pink?

Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr Thinking Pink?

Sarah Michelle Gellar and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr have kept a low profile since news broke that they are expecting their first child, but rumor has it they have a baby girl on the way!

A source on the set of Sarah Michelle’s new show The Wonderful Maladys says that she and Freddie are are thinking pink.

“She’s been letting little details slip here and there. She’s been spending her free time planning the nursery in their TriBeca apartment. Sarah wants the room to look sophisticated, so nothing too frilly or princessy. She’s been shopping for earth tones to mix with plum or magenta accents.”

Whether they have a boy or a girl, Sarah Michelle’s friend and former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Michelle Trachtenberg says she is going to make a wonderful mom.

“We talk every other day. I’m super excited! I’m so very happy for her and Freddie. She’s going to be an extraordinary mom. Good people make great parents.”

Michelle goes on to compare the longtime and low-key couple to other of our favorite famous families:

“It’s in the Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner or Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin vein – they really don’t talk about their relationship. They keep their private, personal love life to themselves. That’s what makes it so special.”

Freddie and Sarah Michelle are seen here enjoying time together last week as the mom-to-be takes a break from filming on the NY set of The Wonderful Maladys.

Diego Luna Says Fatherhood Is Amazing

Diego Luna Says Fatherhood Is Amazing

Diego Luna knew that fatherhood would change his life, but he says he never could have predicted just how profound a change it would be.

The Milk star, who has 9-month-old son Jerónimo with his wife Camila Sodi, tells Parade magazine that becoming a dad has been a “unique” and “perfect” experience.

“Becoming a father is the biggest change you go through in life—at least that I’ve gone through in life. I don’t know if something else is coming, but it’s amazing. It’s a love that people tell you about. You read about it. You think you know what it is. You think you know how it’s going to feel. And then, phew, when it happens, you realize there’s no way to predict this. It’s so unique, so perfect. Yeah, it’s a very special thing that now you’re going to have forever.”

Though his work sometimes takes him away from his family, Diego, 29, says that little Jerónimo is never too far.

“When he’s not around, I always have a reminder with me. I have a little spit up on my shoulder or a spot of carrot puree on my pants. There’s toys everywhere. So he’s with me everywhere.”

Diego has company in the ranks of new fatherhood – his lifelong friend Gael García Bernal’s son Lázaro is just 5 months younger than Jerónimo. The pals recently joked that it’s no coincidence their sons are so close in age.

“We did it together at the same time — fortunately not together. We were [on] the phone like, ‘Hey, are you ready? I am!’ … You know, control is not that easy, so [my son] is a little bit older,” says Diego.

Diego and Gael, who starred together in Y Tu Mama Tambien, have teamed up again in the new film Rudo y Cursi.

Ellen Pompeo’s Fit Pregnancy

Ellen Pompeo's Fit Pregnancy

Mom-to-be Ellen Pompeo showed off her growing baby bump as she left a workout in West Hollywood on Saturday.

Ellen, 39, who is expecting her first child with her husband Chris Ivory in the fall, has been enjoying an active pregnancy so far – she seems to be a regular at her neighborhood gym.

Grey’s Anatomy fans are likely still recovering from Thursday’s tear-jerking season finale. The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes says they’ll have to wait and see how Ellen’s pregnancy will impact season 6.

“We’re still talking about what we’re going to do and what that’s going to mean. Ellen is extraordinarily optimistic about what she’s going to be able to do.”
