Pulling double duty Oscar night last Sunday, expectant mom Brooke Anderson hosted Hollywood’s Gold Rush on CNN and a special live edition of Showbiz Tonight!

Due in early May, Brooke and husband Jim Walker have chosen to wait until delivery day to find out the sex of the baby. “There are too few good surprises in life. We are excited to find out baby’s gender the traditional way,” Brooke tells CBB.

Sanja on

Has anyone noticed how few (that we know of) pregnant ladies were there at the Oscars this year? Seems like everyone was pregnant last year (Brangelina, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, etc).

She looks lovely!

It’s so nice to hear that she’s not finding out – just like nature intended🙂

Lily on

She looks beautiful.

And yes, Sanja, I was thinking about that a few days ago. I only watched bits and pieces of the broadcast but I definitely didn’t see any pregnant celebs this year. Kind of odd considering the usual Hollywood baby boom among A listers.

Carol on

She’s getting really big. That’s a goofy looking dress. It’s looks like there’s a ribbon holding her boobs up!

Well A.J Hammer is going to have to take over the show when she
has the baby! Wondering why she was getting so big all of a
sudden. It is nice to see her from behind the big desk of Showbiz
tonight! Thanks c.b.b

oh, oh, it is a girl! has to be, she’s carrying so high! she looks great too.

Tracy on

I wonder when in May she is due? I noticed she hasn’t been on the last week and half or so. That is a beautiful picture. On the show I could tell she was getting bigger and kind of “looked pregnant” but did know for sure until a month ago when she was mentioning it! I wonder why they seem to be “hiding” the pregnancy! You can tell anyways and its not a secret!
