We've been counting down the most shocking headlines of 2007, and we'll be revealing one more each day through December 21. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that we certainly weren't expecting to see.
If 2006 was the year of celebrity babies, then 2007 was the year of surprising celebrity pregnancies. Salma Hayek started it off with her seemingly out-of-the-blue pregnancy/engagement one-two punch, but little did we know the other shocking announcements we had coming. After months of speculation that we never took seriously, we had trouble believing Nicole Richie's pregnancy, even after she confirmed it. From wrong way on the freeway DUI to beaming mom-to-be in under a year. And then, when we least expected it this week, Jessica Alba announced that she, too, would become a mom in 2008. Other fabulous notable baby bumps like Halle, J Lo, and Christina were just as exciting but not as shocking. All in all 2007 was a year filled with baby surprises, so we'd like to send a big congratulations to all of the celebrities who will be expanding their families in 2008!
