Congratulations are, reportedly, in order for happily-marrieds Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie because according to a new report out today, the couple are PREGS with their first child! Now, before you start passing around the cigars, I have to make clear that there is only one media outlet reporting the news (HMMMM) and that sole media outlet is Star magazine (Erm …) so I suggest y’all take this happy news with a grain of salt ;)
We watched Hilary Duff grow up on Lizzie McGuire. Now a newlywed, she’s expecting a baby of her own, Star can exclusively report. In the Jan. 31 issue of Star, on sale today, we report that the actress and her NHL hockey star hubby, Mike Comrie, are gearing up to be first-time parents with Hilary about seven weeks pregnant. “They weren’t actively trying to conceive but agreed that if it happened, it happened,” her close friend tells Star. How are they feeling about the surprise? “They’re ecstatic,” the pal adds. Hilary, whose first book, Elixir, made it to the New York Times Best-Seller List, married the Pittsburgh Penguins center in Santa Barbara, Calif., in August. She’s been very candid about wanting to start a family, recently saying they were “excited” about having little ones of their own, especially because Mike comes from “a really big family.”
If you consider how many other celebs have been announcing pregnancies lately, this news would really come as no surprise … but, we still have to wait for official confirmation from the couple before I get totally excited. I have to admit, it’s a bit weird for me to imaging Hilary Duff pregs but she is a married woman with a hot hockey-playin’ husband and, well, I can see how the couple might want to get started on a family of their own. For now, let’s send out tentative congrats to Hil. D and Mike … I am really hoping that this pregs report turns out to be true :D
UPDATE: Boo. Hilary Duff has just posted a message on her official Twitter profile denying that she is pregs ;( She tweets:
Wow what a way to wake up and find out your pregs! It’s just a rumor guys! Not true. But thanks for all the good wishes! Lol
Well, I guess that settles that … ah well. Mebbe we’ll be celebrating happy pregnancy news from Hil D. in the near future?
