Must Be Something in the Celebrity Water; Star Pregnancies Baby Boom in Tinseltown for Broody Stars


Byline: KATHARINE BARNEY

ANTENATAL classes will be pretty full in Hollywood at the moment. No sooner has one celebrity given birth to their little bundle of joy than two more announce they are pregnant.

The latest couple to join the baby boom are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

But not content with copying the trend they are going one better - with twins, due in early summer.

Brangelina were happy to confirm the rumours. But others have been coy. Gwen Stefani had already aroused suspicions when she announced the news on the last date of her tour. And Gwyneth Paltrow paraded her bump around for a month before confessing she was expecting a brother or sister for little Apple.

The first celebrity mum of the year was Holly Hunter, who yesterday gave birth to twins. Next up are Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, who will be having a Scientology pregnancy.

But whichever way the babies are born, they will find plenty of playpals among their neighbours.
