Prior to Michelle Monaghan’s pregnancy announcement, her Made of Honor costar, Patrick Dempsey was already aware of her exciting news,
“It was a big secret, and I wasn’t allowed to tell anyone, but I knew Michelle was pregnant, and I am thrilled for her. She will be a great mom because she has a good head on her shoulders, a fine husband, and overall, she is a lovely woman.”
42 year-old Dempsey, who with wife Jillian has 18-month-old twin sons Darby and Sullivan, and a 6-year-old daughter Talula, gave Monaghan, 32, some parenting advice,
“I told Michelle she may not see it now, but her life will change profoundly after she delivers the baby. I told her being a parent is a feeling that she will not understand until she actually has the child.”

“She rides on the goat in the end. As soon as she appears on set, Adam’s focus goes to her. He just loves her. He got dad practice with his dogs. Now he’s moved onto humans.”
Matthew Settle’s wife Naama, said Sadie and Adam are the perfect father-daughter duo,
“Sadie looks exactly like him, which was really funny. She’s really cute.”

When pregnancy rumors started swirling around Ashlee & Pete Wentz, they denied the allegations. Pete even fumed,
“There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood. This is all news to me.”
However, last week, Wentz happily confirmed the news on his blog, explaining that the couple “wanted to wait until after the first trimester” to make it official,
“Every woman, no matter who they are or what they do for a living, has the right to wait until at least [three] months before sharing this very personal news. We wanted to wait until after the first trimester and get a clean bill of health from our doctors before confirming anything, just like any other couple. Being a boy I have no idea how to respond to such things and my first instinct was to protect her and the baby. It’s insane that you can’t let happy news brew in Hollywood. This wasn’t about press or anything. . . . I apologize to anyone who felt misinformed but the truth is, the person and growing baby is who I felt most loyal to protect and defend.”
Pete and Ashlee aren’t the first celebrity couple to deny pregnancy rumors. Nicole Kidman denied the rumors that she and husband Keith Urban were expecting in late December, only to confirm the news a week later. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced her pregnancy news in November following multiple denials by the couple.
Jared Shapiro, executive editor of Life & Style Weekly, told the Associated Press that pregnancy news is big bucks in his industry,
“The news of the pregnancy makes for great breaking news. Ninety-nine percent of these celebrities end up confirming, so they do talk about it – they just do it on their own terms. He went on to say it’s his job “to break news. Not wait for news.”
Not to mention, pictures of the celebrity babies sell for millions. The pictures of Jennifer Lopez’s twins sold for a reported $6 million, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s first snaps sold for $4 million and Christina Aguilera little Max went for $1.5 million.
Competition from celebrity websites and blogs also raises the stakes even higher in getting the news out first, Shapiro said,
“It’s hard for celebrities to keep a pregnancy secret but if you look at who they surround themselves with – they’ve got doctors, lawyers, agents, managers, publicists, assistants, friends, family. Add that into the fact that you’ve got photographers following them, and just the entire American public on celebrity watch now – you can’t pull it off. Your every word is heard.”
