The Kid-Dish: The Bumps Keep Growing for Alicia, Kate, and Natalie

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know

Pregnant Alicia Silverstone was seen leaving a Pilates class in LA wearing sweatpants and ugly shoes and other normal people things. She is expecting her first child with husband Christopher Jarecki. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

Pregnant Kate Hudson was spotted celebrating her boyfriend Matt Bellamy’s (of Muse) Grammy win in West Hollywood on Monday. But wait, is he more than a boyfriend? Apparently some new ring-finger bling has been spotted, as well. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

Claire Danes has arrived in Israel to start shooting “Patriots”, the American version of the Israeli TV series “Kidnapped”. She’s not Jewish and she’s not a mom, but maybe she’ll meet a nice Jewish boy while there and join our list of hot Jewish celebrity parents. (YNet)

Natalie Portman is putting her happy-pregnancy-vibes to good use by teaming up with Free The Children, a charity that raises funds for better schools in Kenya. The most successful fundraiser will win the (pre-baby-bump) dress Portman wore to the premiere of Black Swan last year. In other Portman news, is it a boy? (Babyrazzi)
