January Jones found filming Mad Men tough when she was pregnant. The 35-year-old actress - who is mother to 18-month-old Xander, but refuses to name the father - had her baby bump disguised in a storyline which saw her character, Betty Francis, put on weight because she was unhappy, and the beauty says each day's shooting was hard.
"When we started filming, I was quite pregnant and had to come into work at 3am each day for six or seven hours of prosthetic make-up," she explained. January added she was "afraid" of the response to her changing appearance, but found the reaction by fans was even better than she imagined: "I was very afraid of how that first episode would look when it aired, but I loved the audience response to her. When she's bigger, viewers are more sympathetic to her."
Kristen Bell's co-star found it a "little awkward" shooting sexy scenes with the pregnant actress.
Adam Brody, who guest stars in House of Lies alongside the blonde beauty, has revealed he initially found it strange filming steamy scenes for the dramatic comedy while she is expecting her first child but that she helped him to feel more comfortable.
The 33-year-old actor, who is dating former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, told EOnline.com, "She was very pregnant. I like to say it was sort of a three-person scene. If it wasn't Kristen, it would have been incredibly awkward. Well, it was still a little awkward, but she's just such a warm and open friendly person."
The former Veronica Mars actress is expecting her first child with fiance Dax Shepard and while she can't wait to become a mom, Kristen recently admitted she is also a little nervous.
Kanye West might force Kim Kardashian to quit reality TV.
The "Clique" singer - who recently announced his girlfriend of nine months is expecting their first child in June - is said to be uncomfortable about the idea of her documenting her pregnancy on her family's series Keeping Up With The Kardashians but is willing to go along with it for now.
A source close to the 35-year-old rapper told HollywoodLife.com, "You know Kanye is just rolling with the punches right now with everything. He not tripping - YET! All this TV is new to him and Kim is explaining to him that everything is going to be OK and she's encouraging him to just go with the fact that the pregnancy -- or at least part of it -- will be filmed. I know deep down, [Kanye] isn't trying to pimp out his baby like that. He and Kim got way more than enough money to take care of 100 kids if they want to have that many. But he know that when it comes to Kim and her family, especially that mother of hers, it's all business and that show is how they make their money. So he juggling all this [stuff] in his head right now, but he ain't all hyped about it yet because it hasn't gone down yet - the filming that is."
Although one could imagine 30 Rock making Jenna Maroney and her drag queen impersonator/boyfriend (Will Forte) parents, a baby will not be in their future anytime soon.
When news of Jane Krakowski's real-life pregancy was revealed, fans of the NBC series immediately wondered what that would mean for her TV character. Now, we know the answer.
“At this time, we plan to shoot around Jane’s pregnancy, because no child should have Jenna Maroney for a mother," exec producer Robert Carlock and Tina Fey told EW in a statement.

Jon and Kate Gosselin might have been addressing rumors last night, but it Mel Gibson’s chat that drew laughs.
During a sit-down with exiting Tonight Show host Jay Leno, People‘s first “Sexiest Man Alive” gave himself a new title: “Octo-Mel.” The new nickname is a result of his girlfriend’s pregnancy. (The 53-year-old has seven other children with his first wife.)
When asked how he met the Russian singer, Mel said he heard Oksana Grigorieva’s voice before he actually met her in person. “Did you hear Susan Boyle?” Jay then joked.

90210’s reformed bad girl Adrianna has been thrown headlong into one of the most interesting story lines of the whole season: unwanted teen pregnancy. So, what will the Beverly Hills beauty do? Will the character become a teen mother, rearing a child even as she continues with her acting career? Or will the tyke be adopted by a different 90210 character…maybe even Brenda Walsh?
Everyone has a theory, but no one seems to have the scoop - not even the actors. Reporters recently caught up with Maeve Quinlan, who plays Adrianna’s mom on the show, at a poker event. “We still don’t even know,” the actress answered when asked whether or not Adrianna (played by Jessica Lowndes) will keep the child.

The compelling promos, tons of press and Seventh Heaven association might have been enough to rope me into watching the premiere of ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but it was the mere presence of Molly Ringwald in the cast which sealed the deal. And so it was that last night during prime time, I found myself watching cable instead of network TV. I don’t think it was a mistake.
Rollicking pop music kicked off the top of the episode, which immediately plunged its viewers headlong into teen pregnancy. Seriously, the main character Amy (played by Shailene Woodley) was barely introduced (as a marching band member) before she was in the restroom staring at the positive results from a home pregnancy kit. No time wasted here on introductions.
Actually, it felt more than a little forced. The audience was given no time to connect with this character in any way before BAM! she’s knocked up. And then, the beginning credits rolled.
