Hollywood’s Baby Boom: Reese, Tori & More!
Everywhere we look, it seems another actress is sporting the so-called “bump.” Last week alone, Aries Reese Witherspoon and Tauruses Tori Spelling and Kim Zolciak announced pregnancies. No surprise for the Bulls of the bunch. Sexy, intensifying Mars is spending eight months in Virgo, their fifth house of fertility, making them extra pregnancy-prone. Both ladies had babies mere months ago, so it looks like a round of “Irish twins” will be coming to their households.
Meanwhile, Cancer Jessica Simpson is a month away from her due date and is looking ready to pop! Well into her third trimester, she’s lamenting the loss of her Louboutins — which, frankly, we as comfort-loving Sagittarians simply don’t get. (Ophi had on flat shoes from the moment her pregnancy test turned pink.) A little Aries (or Pisces, if she’s early) will be on the way for Simpson and hubby Eric Johnson, whom we’ve seen listed as both a Virgo and a Libra. A Pisces will be a compatible Water sign; an Aries will be a spirited Fire sign that might be more challenging — but in a good way.
And in an ongoing bout of cosmic karma, Simpson’s ex-husband, Nick Lachey, and his wife, Vanessa Minnillo, are pregnant at the same time. Lachey and Minnillo are both Scorpios (they share a November birthday). With dreamy Neptune in their fertility house since February 3, no surprise they’ve joined the baby-boom bandwagon. They were first to the altar, and Jessica will be first to the delivery room.
Who knows? Perhaps parenthood will mend a few fences for the exes and former “Newlyweds” co-stars. Speaking of mending … we’re predicting a Jessica Simpson children’s clothing line, perhaps accompanied by a reality show about parenting. Too bad the name “Pregnant in Heels” has been taken!
Bonus Edition: Mercury Retrograde Blasts from the Past We Could Live Without
Mercury retrograde (March - April 4) brings back the past, but a couple of not-so-nostalgic throwbacks were recently announced that we could do without. The Garbage Pail kids are returning as a book and a movie, and another “Child’s Play” is coming to theaters, featuring that creepy, nightmare-inducing doll Chucky. Why can’t some things just stay in the graveyard … or the landfill? Hide your kids, hide your wife … unless you want Snotty Sally and Gooey Gary decals covering your walls. No, thanks!
