The celebrity baby boom continues!

Model and actress Devon Aoki is expecting her first child with fiancé James Bailey, her rep confirms to the New York Post’s Page Six.

“Devon and James are extremely happy. They became engaged over the summer, and she has just found out she is pregnant,” says the rep.

Aoki, 28, began modeling as a teenager and became the face of Versace at 16.

She transitioned to acting with roles in 2 Fast 2 Furious and Sin City, and is also the daughter of the late Hiroaki Aoki, founder of the Benihana restaurant chain.

Wasn’t she on the fast and furious with the pink car i think her name was suki

I think she’s more recognizable from that Fast and the Furious movie. I’m not exactly sure which one, but I want to say the second.

Anonymous on

LOL, I was wondering and hoping if the baby boom was going to continue today!

Congratulations to her, and who’s next? Please be someone on my list that I predicted for this year!

Jess on

she’s also from dead or alive, sin city….she played one of the hookers in sin city….she was the one with the really big sword lol

i love her. congrats on the baby and the engagement

Devon on

LOL, can this baby boom include me too? So many friends are pregnant and so many celebrities. I’ve always been a little partial to Devon since we share the same name! Not many women are named Devon and I think it’s way too beautiful to be on a man.

Josie on

She’s so stunning! Congrats :)

Smitty on

She was in D.E.B.S.

B.J. on

D.E.B.S. is where I know her from (and her brother is an AMAZING electronica DJ, Steve Aoki). Congrats to the family!! Bet it’ll be one cute little baby!

Casey on

Where have I been? I thought she was still dating Joseph Gordon Levitt. Anyway, congrats.

fuzibuni on

casey, you’re not crazy. As of last july she was supposedly dating Joseph Gordon Levitt … at least that was what the press was saying.

But now this article says she got engaged over the summer, so who knows. Maybe it wasn’t true? Anyway, I’m glad Devon has found some happiness… her dad passed away two years ago and she was pretty broken up about it.

Alice on

And the announcements continue!! What a year it’s going to be!! I remember her from Sin City, she was great! Congrats!

Holiday on

Ive never heard of her, but I think she looks like Tila Tequila.

CelebBabyLover on

I’m happy for them….but also a bit scared for them. I mean, her rep said she “just found out she is pregnant”. So that means she is still in the EXTREMELY early stages. Why announce so early on, when there’s still such a big risk of miscarriage? I hope that they don’t have to suffer a tragedy in the public eye!

Selene on

I adore Devon, such a beauty.

There were rumours in the summer that she and Joseph Gordon-Levvit were an item, just goes to show how you shouldn’t believe everything you read.

She was fantastic in Sin City, her and Brittany Murphy made that movie for me.

Congrats to Devon, James and their families including Uncle Steve.

CelebBabyLover on

Selene- I didn’t know Brittany Murphy had been in Sin City (which makes sense, since Sin City isn’t the type of movie I’d watch.). Your mentioning her reminds me that there was an article here a couple years back about how she wanted kids. It’s sad to think that she never got the chance. :(

Sat on

Congrats! I love her modeling pics

Lisa on

either someone is divorcing or having a kid… Hollywood’s ying/yang.

Congratulations to the parents-to-be. It’s a blast!

ELIZABETH on

SHE LOOKS LIKE THE GIRL THAT STARS IN “BITCHIN KITCHEN” ON THE COOKING CHANNEL.II LOVE THAT SHOW. SHE IS FUNNY AND GORGEOUS.

Purelica on

She was also in Sin City. She’s a beautiful model who can also act. Congrats!

kazumi on

wasn’t she in this video game move, dead or alive or something? i’m just not sure

Anon on

CBB this is a travesty. I click on the link to see a birth announcement and all you have is the expecting post. This baby was born days ago, what gives?

Marilyn on

I read somewhere the baby’s name is James.

Jennifer Redgrave on

Devon Aoki and husband James Bailey welcomed a son named James Hunter Bailey Jr. on June 10th. :)
