Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are pregnant! Mila was reportedly spotted attending a prenatal yoga class in Hollywood, and a source says, "They are both very, very happy. It's still early. There was a report last week that Mila was expecting twins, but that's not true. They were engaged just about a month ago so there's no word on which came first: The fetus or the diamond. There's also no word if pregnancy will affect Mila's status as a spokeswoman for Jim Beam. Whether she's pregnant or not, one thing we do know is that Ashton and Mila locked lips for the L.A. Clippers Kiss Cam. And congratulations are also in order for Alyssa Milano. She's pregnant with her second child at the age of 41. She husband David Bugliari are already parents to 2-year-old son, Milo.

There have been rumors that "Vogue" had banned Kim Kardashian, but if that was true, it's no longer the case because the latest cover features Kim and Kanye West dressed in their soon-to-be wedding day best. Many rumors say that Kanye somehow strong-armed editor-in-chief Anna Wintour into featuring Kim, but she released a statement saying that's not true. Regardless, Kim is thrilled. She Tweeted, "This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you, 'Vogue' for this cover! OMGGGGGG!!! I can't even breath!" (Of course, she meant BREATHE.) Still, Sarah Michelle Gellar doesn't seem amused. She Tweeted, "Well, I guess I'm canceling my 'Vogue' subscription. Who's with me???

ABC has ordered a new franchise spin-off starring alumni of "The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette" and "Bachelor Pad" who will be whisked away to a tropical locale and incited to date each other. They're calling it "Bachelor In Paradise" and it's genius! The official logline: "The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history, plus all the usual romance, drama and tears we've come to expect from the Bachelor franchise. No airdate has been set, but the next edition of The Bachelorette with Andi kicks off May 19th.

And for those of you that DON'T believe me? Look at my proof that the spin-offs WORK!!


Season 1: Alex Michel and Amanda Marsh — BROKE UP after almost a year of dating after the show.

Season 2: Aaron Buerge and Helene Eksterowicz — BROKE UP five weeks after the finale aired.

Season 3: Andrew Firestone and Jen Schefft — BROKE UP 7 months after finale aired.

Season 4: Bob Guiney and Estella Gardinier — BROKE UP one month after the finale aired, right after they attended Trista and Ryan Sutter's December 2003 wedding.

Season 5: Jesse Palmer and Jessica Bowlin — BROKE UP one month after the finale aired.

Season 6: Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado — BROKE UP, but after several years together. They got engaged in November 2004 and had some domestic issues but didn't officially end their union until December 2009.

Season 7: Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice — BROKE UP, but after a great run. They "took a chance" on a relationship in May 2005 and broke up in September 2007. By November 2008 they were back together, but split up again in April 2010. So close!

Season 8: Travis Lane Stork and Sarah Stone — BROKE UP some time after the show finished taping, since a week after the finale aired, Travis and Sarah told reporters on a conference call that they had already split.

Season 9: Prince Lorenzo Borghese and Jennifer Wilson — BROKE UP two months after the finale aired.

Season 10: Andy Baldwin and Tessa Horst — BROKE UP, first ending their engagement three months after the finale aired, but adding that they were still dating. However, one month after that announcement they officially broke up.

Season 11: Brad Womack and ... Himself! — EPIC FAIL, since he didn't even pick between DeAnna and Jenni Croft, his two finalists. He could've at least pretended to pick one!

Season 12: Matt Grant and Shayne Lamas — BROKE UP two months after the finale aired.

Season 13: Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft... er Molly Malaney — STILL TOGETHER, at least, Jason and Molly are. Jason infamously ended his engagement with Melissa on the "After the Final Rose" special, asking Molly out for coffee just a few minutes later. Awkward! But the Mesnicks got married in February 2010 and they are still going strong four years later.

Season 14: Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi — BROKE UP just three months after the finale aired. Aired dirty laundry in ugly televised breakup shortly after that.

Season 15: Brad Womack and Emily Maynard — BROKE UP at least once while the show was still airing but kept trying to make it work until making an official breakup statement three months after the finale aired.

Season 16: Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson — BROKE UP during filming at least once, but got back together on the "After the Final Rose." They ended things officially in early October 2012.

Season 17: Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici — STILL TOGETHER after getting engaged in November 2012 during filming, and got MARRIED on January 26, 2014 in ABC's first LIVE televised finale!

Season 18: Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell — We can't figure out if they're really a couple or not yet, so stay tuned.


Season 1: Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter — STILL TOGETHER, after the finale aired in February 2003 they got married in an ABC special broadcast on December 6, 2003. They now have two children together.

Season 2: Meredith Phillips and Ian McKee — BROKE UP one year after the finale aired.

Season 3: Jen Schefft and Jerry Ferris — BROKE UP technically on the "After the Final Rose" special when Jen realized she wasn't feeling it.

Season 7: Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum — STILL TOGETHER after getting engaged on the finale, which aired August 1, 2011. They were married in a ceremony televised on ABC in December 2012.

Season 8: Emily Maynard and Jef Holm — BROKE UP in October 2012 after weathering a cheating scandal.

Season 9: Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried — STILL TOGETHER after getting engaged on the finale, which aired August 5, 2013. Des moved to Seattle the weekend after and the couple is planning their wedding.

Season 10: Begins May 2014! Go Andi!!

Of course, The Bachelor franchise has also spawned many non-”official” couples between show alums, including Bachelorette 4’s Jesse Csincsak and Bachelor 13’s Ann Lueders Csincsak; Bachelor Pad 1 cuties Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke, who recently got back together after breaking up in January 2013; Bachelor 10’s Peyton Wright and Bachelorette 6’s Chris Lambton; and BP2’s Holly Durst & Blake Julian... Plus, Season 14's Elizabeth Kitt and Season 6 cutie Ty Brown, who got married last weekend!

So, while the couples who meet on TV aren't necessarily made to last, since 6-8 weeks to get to know someone in a group setting before getting engaged isn't very realistic, perhaps all is not lost. The shared experience of traveling the world, roses in hand, seems to have a lot to do with making lasting connections for many alumni. We hope ABC picks up the tab for their reunions, because all these post-show hookups are boosting their success rate!
