Salmahayek145898_cbbUgly Betty executive director/actress Salma Hayek, 40, and her fiance, Francois-Henri Pinault, PPR CEO, are expecting their first child together any day now, but the mom-to-be is also focusing on her television show  and production/distribution company Ventanazul, with partner Jose Tamez.  Ventanazul is a label that is trying to make mainstream English-language films using Latinos.

When asked if she would be moving to Paris, where her fiance resides, following the birth of her child, the Emmy-nominated actress said,

I’m going to stay and run this company. I had to make a choice…Icould just say I will give it all up and be a housewife in Paris. But Isaid "No." I was so lucky because I found myself a man who is a greatbusinessman. And he loves it that I work this hard. He has a lot ofrespect for what I do…He knows how important this is to me. Thisis a mission. We have been working for this all our lives. It’s abreakthrough and in my lifetime, I want to see a change.

Good for her! Does this mean that she and her fiance plan to live in different countries though? Isn’t he a big businessman in Paris? Will they both live in LA? So many questions…

Wow, a housewife in Paris with a fabulous life with the man I love. No thanks, this job is more important to me. Will your child know how important it is to you?
I hope I am only misunderstanding her intentions, but it comes across to me that her job is more important to her that the man and the baby.

I never thought she would move to paris, she is a working actress and has a lot of productions now from ugly betty to her new pruduction company. In fact I heard few months after the baby is born, she is gonna start a movie. Anyway I love her, can’t wait for her baby annoucement, she is a beautiful lady and a good actress. Her baby will be super rich, salma is rich and the daddy is a billionarie.

I had no idea there was any speculation. I just figured she’d be living here even after the baby and her pending wedding to Francois-Henri.
Either way, nice to know she’s going to be staying put.

Beverly that’s now how I take it at all with salma, just because she doesn’t plan to move to paris. There’s a good chance her fiancee could always move to LA. She has her career in LA and has always lived there for the last 15yrs, so I really didn’t assume because she is having her baby, she would move to paris and just become a housewife, that rarely happens with celebrities. And it won’t affect her baby, because the baby will be living with her, no matter where she lives.
