Now Jewel is pregnant, too

By Liz Kelly


No offense to Jewel, but it's gotten to the point where we're getting a celebrity pregnancy announcement every day. I'm not sure whether to be overjoyed at the fabulous cuddly baby-ness of it all or consider it (along with birds falling from the sky) yet another ominous sign of the apocalypse.

We'll talk about that later today.

For the moment, here's what we need to know: Jewel and her husband, rodeo star Ty Murray (whom you may remember from 2009's particularly hard-to-watch stretch on "Dancing with the Stars") shared the happy news with People magazine.

"It was so hard to keep it a secret," said Jewel, who found out about her pregnancy on her first day as co-host of Bravo's new reality show "Going Platinum."

"I was worried I'd start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, 'Oh, she's pregnant.'"

True, though some might have first leaped to the "stomach virus" conclusion.

Also expecting: Owen Wilson and girlfriend Jade Duell, Marion Cotillard, Victoria Beckham, Jane Krakowski, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Connelly.

Married to a rodeo star? So many 8-seconds jokes.

(Ok, really there's only like 2 or 3 8-seconds jokes one can make, but still.)

Props to Dorkus for staying focused on the fish in the barrel and the shooting thereof and not being sidetracked by the image of Jewel makin' a baby.

I know you've all been wondering, but I am NOT pregnant.

Jewel got pregnant with her first child AFTER already being married? Doesn't she know that that's not the order in which celebs start families any more?
