Third Child on the Way for Ludacris

Xavier Collin/Splash News

Newlyweds Ludacris and Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue have one more thing to celebrate: a baby on the way!

“Beautiful day on the beach,” Mbouguiyengue captioned a photo posted to her Instagram Sunday of her husband kissing her baby belly.

The Furious 7 star and his wife married over the holidays on the same day he popped the question with a romantic proposal aboard a private plane. 

“She didn’t say yes. She said HELL YES! #milehighproposal,” Ludacris, 37, posted on Instagram.

After tying the knot, Mbouguiyengue shared a sweet photo of their wedding day with the caption: “Great way to go into the new year!”

Now, it looks like the new year is bringing even more excitement for the couple.

This will be the third child for Ludacris, who recently won full custody of his 15-month-old daughter Cai and also has a 13-year-old daughter, Karma, from a previous relationship.

The rapper’s new album, Ludaversal, drops later this month.

Molly Sims Named A Pea in the Pod Ambassador

Now that’s a model mama!

Expectant star Molly Sims is squeezing in one last modeling gig before she welcomes her second child, a girl, in March — and the results are absolutely stunning.

The author of The Everyday Supermodel has been named the first ever ambassador for celeb fave A Pea in the Pod and will star in the maternity line’s summer 2015 campaign.

“A mother, model, actress and now author, Molly exemplifies the A Pea in the Pod mom-to-be who does it all with exceptional style,” reads the press release.

Sims, 41, shows off her growing baby bump — and her gorgeous glow! — in a series of shots featuring striped tanks, cute camisoles and chic cocktail dresses.

After the photo shoot in Tarzana, California, PEOPLE caught up with Sims, who shared her thoughts on everything from 2½-year-old son Brooks Alan and her daughter’s name to her baby buys and working with the brand.

PEOPLE: Does Brooks understand he’s getting a sister? What was his reaction when you told him it was a girl?

Molly: His first reaction was he told me he had a baby in his belly too and he didn’t really want a sister — so there we have it! It’s a work in progress.

PEOPLE: How are you preparing Brooks to be a big brother?

Molly: We are talking about her a lot and telling stories about what will happen when your baby sister comes by … inserting her into our daily conversations.

PEOPLE: What was the first thing you bought for the baby after finding out it was a girl?

Molly: I don’t buy anything because I’m superstitious, but we did go to Bonpoint and bought something gray that we won’t unwrap until she gets here!

PEOPLE: What are you most looking forward to doing with your daughter?

Molly: Girl stuff!! I can’t wait to dress her and play with her. Shopping!

PEOPLE: Where are you in the name game — do you have one already picked out? Or are you still working on it?

Molly: We’ve narrowed it down to six names.

PEOPLE: Why did you want to work with A Pea in the Pod as their ambassador?

Molly: I love that they have so many modern and beautiful pieces and I love the fit of their clothes. They work with a lot of current designers that I love, including Rachel Pally.

We Tried It: Milk & Cookies Kids Spa and Salon

We Tried It: Milk & Cookies Kids Spa and Salon

What is it: Milk & Cookies Kids Spa and Salon

Who Tried It: Regan Stephens, Photo Editor

Why We Did It: I imagined I’d take my daughter for her first manicure when she turned 16 — around the age I got my first. (A celebration for passing my driver’s test.)

But at just 3½, she’s had an eagle eye on every painted digit we’ve passed for months. When I heard about Milk & Cookies — a spa for the small set — I couldn’t resist treating her to a little Valentine’s Day outing.

Regan Stephens

Pros: The Milk & Cookies Spa and Salon is adorable. The stuff of Willy Wonka’s dreams, if he were in the beauty biz — there are glass vessels filled with candy-colored, cookie-shaped soaps, a station for creating custom bubble baths and lotions, and mini manicure and pedicure stations.

The moment we walked through the door, Benny was offered her choice of chocolate or strawberry milk and a fresh cookie. We choose her manicure from the delicious list of options: S’mores, Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie and Gummy Worm Mud Pie.

She opted for the classic Milk and Cookies with a strawberry scented soak and chocolate chip scrub. I’m impressed she didn’t lick her hands.

Regan Stephens

She didn’t like the orange stick under her nails, though she needed it. (The grime that accumulates in the hours since her last bath is baffling.) Sonia, the kind and kid-friendly manicurist, graciously skipped this step and went straight to a gentle buffing, then on to painting — Benny’s favorite part.

Sadly, since this was her first manicure (and she’s, uh, 3) she’s not versed on the tradition of waiting for polish to dry. Poor Sonia had to repaint several times before Benny got the message. To her credit, the manicurist was incredibly patient — more than I can say for anyone who has had to fix my own nails. (I admit, I too have trouble keeping still post-paint.)

For the final touch, Benny chose some glittered colors for the flower decal Sonia painted on two of her nails. The polish line the salon uses is non-toxic and dries in a flash, so after a few short minutes, Benny was ready to show off her new pink nails. To every person we pass on the streets of New York City.

Regan Stephens

The Verdict: Four whole days later — eons in toddler-time — Benny is still showing her perfectly-polished nails to every passerby and reminding me of how much fun she had.

The only drawback of a visit to Milk & Cookies is how spoiled she is now for the experience — no normal spa will ever compete. The salon caters to both girls and boys (though some of the staff reported most boys opt for haircuts) and it’s a fun treat for a well-deserving kid. Even if she hasn’t passed her driver’s license test just yet.

Regan Stephens

Cost: Basic manicures start at $10.

Like mother, like daughter: Kelly Clarkson gave PEOPLE an exclusive shot of herself when she was about daughter River Rose‘s age, and spoiler alert — they’re both super cute!

“She’s the happiest baby on the planet,” the singer — whose new album, Piece By Piece, drops March 3 — tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “She’s been sleeping 11 to 12 hours since she was 2 months old.”

Clarkson, who married longtime love Brandon Blackstock in a surprise 2013 wedding, is also mom to stepkids Seth, 8, and Savannah, 13. And the “Heartbeat Song” performer couldn’t be happier with the new work-life balance she’s found.

“I love what I do, but I feel like I relied on my career a lot for my self-worth. And now I’m more than that,” says Clarkson, 32. “I’m a mother and a wife and have this whole other thing going on.”

Bill Rancic: My Son Duke Is the ‘Happiest Kid I’ve Ever Met’

Bill Rancic is one proud papa!

At just 2½ years old, his son Duke is already hitting some big milestones: The tyke speaks not just one, but three different languages.

“He can count to 10 in Spanish, which is pretty awesome,” the reality star tells PEOPLE of his son with Giuliana Rancic.

“And Giuliana’s teaching him Italian,” he adds. “It’s great! He’s a sponge.”

Of course, the 43-year-old dad is especially excited to see his son getting into sports. “We go to the park in the afternoon,” he shares. “I’ve got a little tee-ball set up and I’m teaching him to hit the ball. We’re having a lot of fun together.”

Duke can be a pretty devious kid, however. “He’ll want to do something, but he’ll check us out before,” Rancic explains. “He had a crayon and he wanted to draw on the wall, but he was very cautious and he would drop his hand down to make it look like he was drawing on the wall by accident, but it was very calculated.”

He continues, “I said to him, ‘I know what you’re doing!’ He’s a good kid. He’s always laughing. Just the happiest kid I’ve ever met.”

In the midst of it all, the entrepreneur still finds time for plenty of business pursuits. He’s partnered with VeriSign to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first “.com” and is one of five judges for the company’s #InternetOfficial contest, which honors the web’s best domain names.

“It’s amazing,” he says of the anniversary. “I don’t think anyone had any idea what was about to unfold … It’s changed the world, it’s made commerce a lot easier and it’s leveled the playing field for people with a dream.”

Kelly Clarkson may be a hits machine, but when it came to naming her daughter, she admits that it didn’t take that much mental heavy lifting to conjure the unique moniker River Rose.

“We were going back and forth on what to name her,” the singer, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And I like androgynous names.”

During one day of her pregnancy, she and husband Brandon Blackstock, 38, were relaxing at their Nashville-area home when inspiration struck.

“We live on a river, so it really wasn’t that creative,” Clarkson — whose new album Piece by Piece comes out March 3 — says with a laugh.

“We were outside on our balcony, and we both looked at each other and were like, ‘What about River? That’s kind of cool.’ ”

And Rose? “It’s my mother’s maiden name,” she adds. “And I love alliteration.”

Clarkson’s 8-month-old daughter may just be a trendsetter: According to Babycenter.com, the name River is more popular this year than it was in 2014, when it ranked No. 261 ,versus No. 81 in 2015.
