Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Expecting a Baby Girl

Start buying little leather dresses! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just found out they're expecting a baby girl, a source close to the pregnant reality star tells Us Weekly exclusively.

"They're over the moon!" a source close to the first-time parents-to-be tells Us. "Kanye always wanted a girl."

Kardashian, 32, and West, 35, began dating in April 2012 and announced they were expecting on Dec. 30.

The couple's daughter, due in July, will no doubt be very well dressed. "If anyone knows Kanye, they just know how into fashion he is, and I think he's going to have things specially made," Kim said of the rapper and fashion designer on Jimmy Kimmel Live in January. "So I don't think hand-me-downs are going to work."

"He is so excited," she gushed. "It's really cute how excited he is."

Until the baby arrives, Kardashian is focused on taking good care of her body.

"I used to always say I can't wait to get pregnant because I will just eat whatever I want, but it's completely different," she told the spring issue of Du Jour magazine. "I'm like, OK, I want to eat as healthy as possible. Though lately I've been watching shows like I'm Pregnant and Addicted to Meth. It definitely makes me feel better if I'm wanting one sip of Diet Coke or, you know, too much sugar. I'm like, This woman is on meth."

Kardashian and West's baby girl will join cousins Mason, 3, and Penelope, 7 months.

Report: Mindy McCready Dead Of Apparent Suicide

According to various media sources, including E! Online, The Wrap, and TMZ, troubled country singer Mindy McCready, age 37, has died of an apparent suicide, the result of a single self-inflicted gunshot. According to E! News, McCready shot herself and her dog. The Associated Press reports that her body was found 4pm Sunday on the front porch of her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas, after neighbors heard gunshots and called the police.

McCready leaves behind two children, 6-year-old Zander and 9-month-old Zayne. Her death comes just a little more than a month after the death of her boyfriend, songwriter David Wilson, age 34. Wilson's death is still under investigation.

McCready's tragic death follows a recent commitment to rehab and her children being removed from her home. A petition filed by McCready’s father this year revealed serious issues in the singer’s life, including alcohol and prescription drug abuse, as well as erratic behavior. According to a report from E!, who exclusively obtained the file, Tim McCready attested that his daughter had taken to her bed since the death of her boyfriend last month. “Sleeps all day,” he reported. “Drinks all night and is taking Rx drugs.”

Cacee Cobb Loves Talking Babies with BFF Jessica

Cacee Cobb and Jessica Simpson have been longtime pals, and being pregnant simultaneously has been another fun bonding experience for the two ladies.
“Imagine if you and your best friend were pregnant at the same time – Cacee’s loving it,” Donald Faison tells PEOPLE Thursday while promoting EA’s Real Racing 3 for Mobile.
“They hang out all the time anyway, but now they hang out and talk baby stuff, look at baby stuff online, and go shopping for baby stuff together.”
Cobb, 35, who has been dealing with morning sickness, may be in need of a few words of encouragement from her friend, who has already been through a pregnancy.
“You think when you get pregnant, it’s going to be glitz and glamour and everything’s going to be wonderful, but they don’t tell you about the morning sickness, they don’t tell you about the constipation and being uncomfortable,” says Faison, 38, of the not-so-glamorous aspects of his wife‘s pregnancy.
However, The Exes star says that Cobb is “handling it like a champ.”
“It might be a little different than she thought it was going to be, but we’re really happy,” he shares.
Faison is doing his part to make sure that Cobb’s pregnancy goes as smoothly as possible.
“I do my best not to annoy my wife, I just get out of her way,” he jokes. “But then I do my best to show her love also. I’ve become a good foot massager!”

Review of the book Threads of Grace by Kelly Long

I liked this book. I really like reading books about the Amish and their way of life. This book was about this girl Grace who 7 years ago got married to this one man to help her family pay of debts and then her first husband died in an accident and she had six months to find another man or to lose all the help from the first husbands family. Well she ends up falling in love with this great guy named Seth and they end up getting married and living a great life and Seth ends up adopting Grace's child as well as his own so they are all a big happy family. I read this book in 3 hours and couldn't put it down. What I like about the Amish community is how people rush to help others, they truly are sharing what the bible says about being kind and loving our neighbors. A simple thing can mean so much to someone who is struggling such as a hug, a talking to or a meal. Sometimes we just need someone to be their for us when we are struggling and sometimes the struggling is in the inside so we need to really see who needs help and reach out a hand because a person may not come out and directly say they need help. Look for someone who is pulling away from others, crying, etc. Or a person may be praying and God may tell you to be there for him through some way.
