Trifecta of baby news: Gilbert, Saldana, Tyler

SHARE Trifecta of baby news: Gilbert, Saldana, Tyler

Zoe Saldana and husband Marco Perego reportedly are expecting twins — or so says Saldana pal Britney Spears.

Baby news was a triple threat on Wednesday. First we heard about Britney Spears inadvertently spilling the beans during a TV interview — revealing her friend and “Crossroads” co-star Zoe Saldana was expecting twins. The actress has previously confirmed her pregnancy, but the twins news had not been revealed until Britney let it slip.

†On her daily chatfest “The Talk” mainstay Sara Gilbert surprised her fellow co-hosts by revealing she was pregnant. During a segment, she declined to participate in a dare that involved having a bed of nails placed on her stomach.

“I really do believe in facing your fears and doing things that make you uncomfortable, but I actually can’t do the dare because I’m pregnant,” Gilbert told her co-hosts, a very excited Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood.

While it will be the first child for the ex-“Roseanne” star and her new wife, musician Linda Perry, she also has two children from her previous relationship with TV producer Allison Adler.

†In another baby bit, E! News reported Wednesday that Liv Tyler is expecting her second child. While the actress’ team has yet to confirm the pregnancy, this news comes only a few months after Tyler began dating Dave Gardner, a close friend and associate of soccer superstar David Beckham.

The actress is already the mother of son Milo, 9, from her former marriage to British musician Royston Langdon.
