2007 Most Shocking Headlines: Surprise Pregnancies

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!

So sad...another Spears with no career soon...:( that poor little baby

yeah, pregnancy, fine, good...whatever happened to MARRIAGE?? it's sad that a star getting engaged without being pregnant is more surprising than an unmarried star getting preggers.

I think Jessica probably announced it early so she wouldn't have to deal with the same paparazzi frenzy and tabloid headlines that Christina and J.Lo did. By not announcing their pregnancies, they actually made them a bigger deal. More pictures were written and more stories told to "prove" their pregnancies. I think Jessica is following in Hallye's footsteps--smart move.

I found Jessica's the most shocking, simply because she announced it before there was even any baby bump speculation. Nicole was a close second.

What's so shocking about celebs having babies? What is so shocking is celebs with money not being able to afford birth control (or self control, is it?). What's with all these unwed moms? I'm no prude, by any means, but I thought we'd gotten smarter than that. I also thought being a celeb meant you had the money and wherewithall to be a little smarter about protection. Color me shocked!

Shocking, would def. be Jessica Alba. Cuz when i read it, i was like, Whaaaaaaaaa??? Hahaha, so totally in complete shock. I think its just because she's so young and freakin gorgeous, it just kinda caught me off guard. I most excited about Halle tho. I mean, who doesnt love her?! :D

I was surprised to read that Jessica Alba was pregnant.I still don't see her as the mothering type.I thought she would be the type of celebrity that waited years to have a baby but she wanted to keep the boyfriend so she got pregnant sooner than later.
