Jamie Lynn Spears At ‘Juno’: In case you were under a rock yesterday, Nickelodeon confirmed that Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant. In a case of movies imitating life, Jamie Lynn and mom, Lynee Spears, reportedly took in a screening of the new teen-pregnancy film, “Juno,” according to PageSix. No word on what the Jamie thought of the film, but the Golden Globes sure loved it, nominating it for three Globes.
Lynne Spears’s Parenting Book Delayed: Lynne Spears was slated to publish a book about raising Britney and Jamie Lynn, but the book has been “delayed indefinitely,” a spokesman for publisher told People. The book was described by Publishers’ Weekly as, “Lynne Spears’s personal story of raising high-profile children while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community.” It seems Lynne might be adding a few more chapters.
Lily Allen Pregnant: In some non-Jamie Lynn news, singer Lily Allen is also pregnant. The 22-year-old singer is having a baby with Ed Simons, 37, from the electronica super group, The Chemical Brothers, according to People. Lily is reportedly slated to release her next album in the New Year.
Chris O’Donnell and Wife Have 5th Child: In yet more celeb pregnancy news, actor Chris O’Donnell and his wife, Caroline, welcomed their 5th child, daughter Maeve Frances O’Donnell, according to a report in People. The O’Donnell bundle of joy weighed in at 8 lbs. and 21½ inches long. She joins sister Lily, and brothers Chip, Charlie, and Finley.
End Of The Line For ‘Entourage’?: And in so much welcomed non-baby news, but not exactly good news, it appears the Hollywood writers strike could claim another victim. Adrian Grenier said to OK! Magazine, concerning the fate of his hit HBO series, “Entourage,” “Honestly, the scariest potential surprise is that there may not be a show next year, if there is not a resolution with the writers’ strike soon.” No Johnny Drama and Turtle? Say it ain’t so!
