Loved-up and ready for babies!

08 Oct 2008

There must be something in the water, because the A-listers are getting clucky…

Jessica Biel

“It’s Their Next Step”
Jess has openly scoffed at the idea of marriage, saying she “doesn’t need a piece of paper” to show her love, but that doesn’t mean she’s immune to the biological clock – or the need to find a soul mate.

“The idea of being with someone I care about, who’s my soul mate… that sounds groovy,” Jess once cooed. Snapped looking longingly at her boyfriend Justin Timberlake on holiday in Italy last week, Jess definitely looked like she’d found her “soul mate”, and insiders have hinted that she’s ready for kids.

“It’s the next logical step for Jess,” spilled a pal. Friends have also suggested that Jess has begun to prepare herself for motherhood by relaxing her once rigorous gym-routine. “[Motherhood] is a rite of passage as a woman,” says Jess.

Potential baby names:
Venice, Rome, or Sienna, as a reminder of their Italian hol.

Cameron Diaz

Their Secret Baby Plans
Though she has publicly ruled out marriage to her model boyfriend Paul Sculfor, insiders say that behind closed doors Cam is desperate to start a family and settle down with the Brit hunk.

Cam, 36, has made the mistake in the past of revealing baby plans when she was with her ex, Justin Timberlake, gushing at the time: “I’m now at that age where the wish for a child starts growing. You have to settle down in your heart.”

Sick of having comments come back to bite her, a loved-up Cam has asked Paul to down-play their relationship and keep their family plans private.
“Yes [we are in love],” said a cagey Paul last week. “She has openly said she doesn’t not want marriage, so we’re coasting.”

But, according to insiders, in reality the smitten pair will soon be ‘coasting’ towards Mothercare.

Potential baby names:Anything other than Justin or Jennifer!

Jennifer Lopez

More babies while she can
She’s just got her figure back from having the twins in February, but J-Lo is already planning to extend her brood.

“I’d love to have more kids. I don’t know when, we’ll see, you know the same way my first ones happened! We’ll just do it the same way for the second [time around],” she stated recently.

Rumours have been rife that Jen made use of the expensive fertility drug Clomid to help her and Marc conceive the twins and, at 39, Jen knows if she wants more kids, the sooner she starts the fertility process again, the better.

Jessica Simpson

Her career’s over, So now it’s time for babies…
With her country tour receiving scathing reviews (one critic said, “she delivers tedious commentary and little stage presence”), Jess’ confidence has been knocked. Friends say she’s crying out for the security starting a family could provide, and has even nicknamed her boyfriend Tony Romo – who she recently moved in with – ‘FBD’ (Future Baby Daddy).

Though her first marriage failed, Jess has always yearned for a family of her own – and never more so than now, as she plays house in her new love nest, and as her little sister Ashlee prepares to give birth next month “I would love to be making records and making babies,” swooned Jess. “I have the dreams of every normal person. I want to be a great aunt.”

Potential baby names:Now that she’s gone all country, we reckon Jess will opt for Dolly for a girl, and Kenny for a boy.

Lindsay Lohan

Who Needs A Man?
It was only last month that Lindsay finally confirmed her relationship with Sam Ronson and already the 22-year-old is talking about starting a family with the DJ.

“I’m really happy and that’s all that matters,” gushed Linds, who is also rumoured to be setting up home with Sam in New York. “I want to adopt a kid as well. A child in need or a newborn from another country. I’m not sure yet.”

Many have credited Sam – who was recently spotted enjoying a romantic holiday in Mexico with Lindsay – with taming the former wild child, but Linds insists she’s helped herself grow up.

“[Samantha’s] a great person. But I think that anything that’s changed in my life is because of me. I’ve gone through it and I’ve had to deal with it and I’ve made the decision to move forward.” Only time will tell if Linds is grown-up enough to be a mum.

Potential baby names:Jodie, Cynthia, Portia, or one of the other famous friends of Ellen DeGeneres.


“The Time Is Right For Us”
Beyonce’s hubby Jay-Z has just been honoured for his charity work with kids in Africa, and its got the happy couple thinking about their own family, with the rapper admitting the time could be right for the couple. “Most people dream of having a family someday, so I’m just a regular American boy.”

Jay-Z’s comments will be a pleasant surprise to his patient wife. “You can’t rush a man into having children. When he’s ready, he’ll let you know,” says B. We think he’s trying to let you know he’s ready, B!

Potential baby names:Something utterly ‘street’ for hip hop’s finest, like Boo Boo LeSchizzle.
