Kim Kardashian Pregnant With Kanye West's Baby!

Kim Kardashian has something to look forward to in 2013: the birth of her first child!

The E! reality star is three months pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West's child, Us Weekly has confirmed. The musician announced their baby news while performing at Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Dec. 30. The "Heard Em' Say" rapper told the crowd to "stop the music and make noise for my baby mama," referring to his girlfriend, who was in the audience.

This will be the first child for both Kim, 32, and West, 35, who began dating in the spring of 2012. They two had been friends for several years, though both were in relationships at the time. (Kim is still married to NBA player Kris Humphries; she filed for divorce in October 2011.)

Shortly after West shared the news with fans Dec. 30, Kim's family members expressed their happiness via Twitter. "Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can! Another angel to welcome to our family," tweeted Kourtney Kardashian, mom to son Mason and daughter Penelope (with partner Scott Disick). "Overwhelmed with excitement!"

Tweeted Khloe Kardashian-Odom, "Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited! Love is everything!" The X Factor co-host's husband, Lamar Odom, added, "I'm excited for Kanye and my sister! There's nothing like bringing life into this world! Let's keep God's blessings coming!"

Kim spoke candidly about her desire to have West's children during a September appearance on The View. "At the space that I am in life now, kids are definitely something I want," she said. "I think I wanted that before. I think I fell in love so quickly and wanted that to be my life so badly but I just didn't take the time to find someone."

Review of the book The 5 Money Personalities by Scott and Bethany Palmer

I was excited to try get this book and read it because money is source of tensions in our marriage and this book has solutions to help couples fix money problems.

I first figured out my money personality which was Security Seeker which talks about how a person with this personality is predictable. And how this person can be up for an adventure as long as he can plan it. That person has no problem spending money but wants to make sure he is spending wisely. They like to know the future is settled and safe. They are all about planning, consistency, and clear expectations. When it comes to money, the Security Seeker's motto is the safer, the better. He loves a sense of order and predictability.  

And what makes the couples fight is how each person is a different personality and how to manage being different and coming together, and the main point of the book is about to be honest and talk about issues because if we sit down and talk about things honestly and not hide things then the marriage won't have any problems. I really liked this book and would recommend it to my friends, Money can affect anyone, some like to spend more and not care and others like to save more. My husband is more the saver and I am more the spender so that causes fights in our marriage. He wants to save up for a big purchase like a tv. Which we do not need right now.

Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum Expecting a Baby

Life is about to get a little more magical for Magic Mike star Channing Tatum.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum the actor's wife of three years, is pregnant, their rep tells Us Weekly. "Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year."

"It was a total surprise," an insider tells Us of the pregnancy, adding that Tatum, 32, is taking a full year off to be with his expectant spouse and their baby-to-be, due sometime in 2013. (Incidentally, the 21 Jump Street actor told Entertainment Weekly recently that he wanted to step back from acting to focus on a few behind-the-scenes projects with his production partner, Reid Carolin, who wrote the screenplay for Magic Mike.)

The  couple met on the set of Step Up in 2006 and married in Malibu, Calif., on July 11, 2009. Earlier this year, Dewan, 32, opened up to Us Weekly about their plans for a family.

"I would hope so!" the dancer-turned-actress told Us in January when asked if kids were in the couple's future. "I just don't know when. When it's meant to be, it will happen."

Man Arrested for Trying to Break Into Taylor Swift’s House

A 24-year-old man took the bus from Wisconsin to Nashville with a very specific plan — to spend Taylor Swift's birthday with her. It didn’t work out quite like he had hoped.

Jacob Kulke was arrested for trespassing at the singer’s Nashville residence at 1:45AM Friday morning (Dec. 14). He hopped the fence, but was then detained by security. When the authorities arrived, he told them that he was dating Swift.

TMZ reports that Kulke said he used social media to get in contact with someone at Swift’s house, and that he was on his way to help celebrate her birthday with her. Swift turned 23 on Thursday, Dec. 13.
Kulke was booked, jailed and then held on $10,000 bond.

The man — who is rumored to have had a pocketknife on him at time of arrest — has a shadowy past. He was convicted of battery, disorderly conduct and drug possession in 2010 and placed on 13 months probation. Lucky for Swift, he was apprehended quickly this time around, and didn’t get a chance to come in contact with her. The ‘Begin Again’ singer was not home when the break-in occurred, and in fact was out of the country.

Recently, Swift acknowledged that since becoming famous, she has been stalked by several people, but that “it’s the price you pay for getting to do what you love.” She added, “You can let it take over your life and make you fearful all the time, or you can live your life in spite of it.”

Taylor Swift Makes Country Chart History With ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’

Taylor Swift's ‘Red’ hot year continues to blaze, sizzle and scorch. The singer, who will celebrate her 23rd birthday this coming Thursday (Dec. 13), has another reason to throw a party –  her smash hit single, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ has been parked in the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s Top Country Songs chart for nine weeks, setting a new record for most weeks in the top slot by a female artist.

Swift and ‘WANEGBT’ break a record that has been held for nearly 50 years with this feat. Connie Smith held the torch for a whopping 48 years, landing at No. 1 for eight weeks with her debut single ‘Once a Day’ back in 1964.

It’s worth nothing that Buck Owens passed the nine-week mark with his 1963 smash ‘Love’s Gonna Live Here,’ which sat in the top spot for 16 weeks. So, he is the male artist with the longest hold on No. 1, while Swift shares the same accolade for her gender.

‘WANEGBT’ is a true hit for Swift in many ways, having been nominated  by the Grammys for Record of the Year, as well. Congrats to Taylor Swift on yet another remarkable achievement with ‘Red.’

Were Pawn Stars' Father-Son Duo Fined $1000 for Trash?

Pawn Stars' father-and-son duo Rick and Corey Harrison found themselves on the wrong side of the law after failing to pick up after themselves on a California campground.

According to TMZ, the Harrisons went camping in Glamis, Calif., over Thanksgiving weekend with friends and left behind several bags' worth of trash, specifically beer cans, garbage and a BBQ grill. Authorities knew the Pawn Stars duo was responsible for the mess because of an incident earlier that weekend.

Officials told TMZ that the reality stars were fined $1,000 a person for leaving the trash behind. However, Corey Harrison told the site a different story: "We left the campground before our buddies did and they were to clean it up and apparently didn't follow through. My father nor I were cited."

Review of the book An Amish Kitchen by Beth Wiseman, Kelly Long, Amy Clipston

This book surpised me because I thoughg it was one giant book but the book had 3 indivual stories to read inside.

The first book was about A girl named Fern who lived with her mom and was trying to find a suitable husband for herself and in the end ends up doing that and her husband ends up being someone she never thought she would end up with. The second book is about a woman named Hannah who runs a bed and breakfast and also ends up finding someone to marry and love. The third book is about a husband and wife who have 3 kids and end up having to spend time with their mother and father in law after their house gets torn up by a tree falling on it.

I enjoyed both books and ended up reading them really fast. I read the whole book, or all 3 books in about 2 hours. I just sat in front of the tv and read this book. I enjoy reading about Amish life and find it interesting and have also read books written by Beth Wiseman before and enjoy them as well. She is one of my favorite authors. Sometimes the people we end up are not who we thought. I found my husband early on, he was my first and only boyfriend and then husband. We may fight now and then but we truly love each other and everyone can see that. My aunt told me early on how much my husband loved me.
