And baby makes three: Selma Blair and her fashion designer boyfriend, Jason Bleick, are expecting their first child, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Blair, 38, and Bleick, founder and creative director for EVER fashion line, met while collaborating for the brand and have been dating about a year, according to a friend.

“They are ecstatic,” says the friend. “They couldn’t be happier.”

The actress was recently nominated for a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for Children for the audio book Anne Frank: The Diary Of A Young Girl: The Definitive Edition. She’ll next be seen in the drama Dark Horse costarring Christopher Walken.

Can’t wait to see who’s next yet again!

Lisa on

I wonder when she’s due?

Meagan on

Yay! Another Legally Blonde baby. (Ali Larter is the other one.)
Now Resse should have another one. πŸ™‚

TC on

There is something in the water, and why I just stocked up on bottled water!

Congrats to her, I loved her in the movie with Reese and Ryan (can’t remember the name)

Holiday on

Wow that is a lot! And I had no idea she was 38! I thought she was younger, she looks very good for that age.

Em on

If you currently look at the Top 5 most popular news on the main page of, it’s all about babies and engagements. Great news. Keep them coming.

How exciting….something must be in the air in Hollywood! Would love to see Selma in Fit2Bmom!

Nella on

Wow! I am shocked at all the celeb baby announcements! Well Congrats to Selma and Jason! I also wouldn’t think she’s 38, she looks much younger. Anyways, I feel like 2011 is a babyboom year! I personally know 5 women that are also pregnant now.

Natasha on

Congrats to Selma. Have to agree with Holiday, thought she was much younger. Would have pegged her for around 30 – 33.

So, CBB readers, who do YOU think will be next to join this epic baby boom?
My predictions are:-

Resse Witherspoon & her fiancΓ©.
Jack Black & his wife.
Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton.
Tobey & Jennifer Maguire.
Nicholas Cage & his wife.
Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green.

As for a less likely couple, I can see Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin or Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban joining the boom. Then for total surprises, I can see either Cameron Diaz or Kate Winslet.

Lacey on

The announcements just keep coming!!

kmb on

Em- now all 5 of the top stories are about babies/pregnancies. Love it!

Mia on

2011 is the new babyboom vs. 2008. I think Reese Witherspoon will be next-after her + her new husband marry. Maybe Angelina Jolie + Brad Pitt will welcome another kid into the family this year, whether via pregnancy or adoption.

I hope Gwen Stefani has 1 more…

Congrats to them!

CC on

You always know when it’s winter, because people start getting pregnant…. It’s a know fact that most babies are conceived in Dec/Jan

Waverly on

Wow!! Great news!!

Rosalie on

Wow, there IS something in the water…excited to see who makes an announcement next! Congrats to them!

TC – Cruel Intentions is the film you’re thinking of, I think.

Crystal on

I thought to myself “this is ridiculous!!!” EVERYONE in Hollywood is announcing their pregnancies!!! Lol! Another pregnancy I did not see coming! I love Selma Blair especially in the Sweetest Thing!! Ha! Congrats to her and her boyfriend!!! πŸ™‚

Amelie on

Wow, I would have never guessed she was 38 either!

B.R on

EM after I read your most I check and you are right. I will say it’s nice to see good news for all five top stories.

It will be so much fun in about 6-9 months to see all the baby pictures, in the mean time, belly pictures and hopefully some great baby belly fashion.

Congratulations to the happy couple. They are going to have beautiful children.

kai on

I’m loving the baby-boom! Can we have a betting pool or something?

Selma is SO cool. I know she’s had some personal troubles in the past, so it’s lovely to hear those good news from her! Congrats!

lena on

I’m so excited by all this baby news!! πŸ™‚ I’m also due this summer so it’s great to have so many celebs be pregnant with me!

Mary Beth on

Loved her in “Cruel Intentions”!

Mary on

It’s really funny because I heard someone say 2009 was the year of Celebrity Deaths. 2010 was the year of Celebrity Splits. And 2011 will be the year of Celebrity Births. Glad to see that’s coming true!

Emma on

Is it becoming a trend???

Becky on

Wow, there’s something in the water in Hollywood. What an exciting year it’s going to be with all the new babies going to be born.

Snaperulz on

Awesome news, I’ve liked her since Legally Blonde. Congrats to her and Jason.

Bumps still on for Nicole Kidman & Shania Twain.

JMO on

wow they just keep on coming!

j.e. on

Congrats to them. holy baby boom! now Cameron Diaz needs to have one (; (The Sweetest Thing)

& My predictions are maybe Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson, Gwen Stefani, Katy & Russell or Khloe or Kourtney K?
or for a shock, what about
Anne Hathaway, Ellen & Portia or Julianne Hough (dating Ryan Seacrest)?

I was thinking Isla Fisher, but I remembered she just had one, but we’ll probably get to hear the name/gender of Isla Fisher’s new little one soon, because you know she’ll be doing promotion for that animated movie Rango, with Johnny Depp.

sanperulz on

Sorry I meant bumpwatches still on for Nicole Kidman & Shania Twain!

erilynne on

I didn’t think she was near 38 either! She looks very much younger.

Congrats to Selma on the pregnancy!

Bancie1031 on

Congratulations to Selma and Jason …. maybe I’m in the wrong state to get pregnant … maybe I should go out to California to try and get pregnant …. seems to be working for everyone over there LOL.

CelebBabyLover on

CC- I’m sure you’re right (especially because, as another poster pointed out on another recent pregnancy announcement thread, people tend to spend a lot more time huddled inside and cuddling in the winter and, well, one thing leads to another! ;)), but for what it’s worth, most of these celeb-babies-to-be were concieved in September and October, as most of the moms-to-be seem to be 3 or 4 months along. πŸ™‚

Kay on

Well I thought 2007 was a big hollywood baby boom year – thats the year my daughter was born and I remember Usher and Christina Aguilera both had their baby’s that year, along with a number of other celebrities – I remember those two because I grew up listening to their music! And so now I’m pregnant again and due late this year, and hollywood has gone baby mad AGAIN!! Wow, I must be a celebrity at heart or something! LOL

Rachel on

Funny! Seems she was dating two guys at the same time but didn’t tell them or at least one of them named Mike Day from the Tonight Show. Oh yeah, she just broke up with him! Seems like a cheater to me!

rebecca on

babies are gifts from God and every one hat gets to concieve should be asured of his blessings and great providence.
