Molly Sims Expecting First Child

Newlyweds Molly Sims and Scott Stuber have another reason to celebrate: They’re having a baby!

The model/actress and her producer husband are expecting their first child together at the end of June, she shared Tuesday on her website.

“I am absolutely, positively, downright over the moon to announce that we are pregnant! There are simply no words to describe the feeling … I finally get what they mean when they say pregnant women GLOW,” she writes.

“Our little bundle of joy is a honeymoon baby, due at the end of June. A first pregnancy is a nerve-wracking experience of course, but mostly we are just thrilled and excited. We can’t wait to meet him or her.”

The Project Accessory host, 38, and Stuber, 42, tied the knot in September in an intimate ceremony in Napa Valley, Calif., in front of family and friends.

When it came time to tell her new husband, Sims utilized a fortune cookie — which she posted a photo of at the top of her announcement.

“I hijacked the fortune cookie and typed a new message so that when he opened his cookie at the end of the meal, he found out he was going to be a daddy,” she explains.

“You can only imagine how nervous I was during the entire meal (I think I ate a total of two bites…), but the look of surprise and pure joy on his face was priceless.”

Babies were on the brain for Sims as early as October, when she hinted to PEOPLE that she’d love to expand her new family.

Speaking of her gorgeous Marchesa wedding dress, she said: “Hopefully one day, knock on wood, I’ll have a little baby girl to pass it down to.”

Aw, yay! Congratulations to her.

I miss her show, Las Vegas. I especially hate it ended on a cliffhanger.

canada girl on

So it is a honeymoon baby!

MEg on

that’s going to be a beautiful baby!

Lauren on

Aww I had a honeymoon baby they are the best! Congrats!!

J on

Her character on Las Vegas was awful but I wish they had explained if she and the baby were ok in the end.

missy on

I too miss VEGAS! Loved the show and all the people on it! Wish they would bring it back! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, congrats to the beautiful couple!

chelsea on

When she hinted in October, she probably already new she was pregnant.

Melody on

LOVE her ..congrats!!!

Siera on

@J. Not really the point of this article…

Mimi on

I f’n hate this “we”re pregnant” crap! “We” are not going to have morning sickness and “we” are not going to get stretch marks, and “we” are not going to push a 7lb being out of “our” body. “SHE” is. I hate the new vernacular people use now, it’s so annoying!!!!!!!!!

Brooklyn on

Congrats to them!

Siera on

@Mimi. Obviously they’re not referring to the physical things that come with being pregnant. I think its more the mental and emotional that they created their child together and will be welcoming him or her into the world together.

Mimi on

@-Siera, your rationale makes no sense. I’m not trying to be a beyotch, but men can’t get pregnant and therefore, for a pregnant woman to say that she and her husband are pregnant is just plain nonsensical. They’re by far not the only people who have said, “WE are pregnant.” I have friends and family who have said it and I bite my tongue every time, so as not to start an argument. I wish them nothing but the best though.

j on

I’m with Mimi–it is such a pet peeve of mine, too!

Becca on

Congratulations!! Miss the show, Las Vegas, it was a good one!!

Mira on

I’m with Mimi too. There is a logical way to express the sentiment they’re going for–“We’re expecting a baby”. “We’re pregnant” is just plain nonsense.

Angela on

I think it’s strange to mention that the baby is a honeymoon baby. It’s not really anyone’s business when the baby was conceived. Anywho, congrats to them.

Jenn on

How sweet, a honeymoon baby. Congrats to Molly and Scott.

Jenn on

@Mimi – I find the “we’re pregnant” thing kind of obnoxious too. I know people are just excited to announce they’re going to become parents, but only one of them is pregnant.

Debbie on

All babies are wonderful, not just the “honeymoon” ones you moron!

Bree on

Congrats to Molly and Scott!!!!

I am impressed that she was able to wait that long to tell her husband she was pregnant, when I found out I was pregnant with my now one month old daughter I couldn’t get to the phone fast enough!! I had all sorts of cool ways to tell him but they all went out the window when I saw that positive sign 🙂

Very excited for them, first pregnancies are definitely stressful but so worth it when you hold that beautiful baby for the first time 🙂

Sarah S. on

What glorious news–congrats to Molly and Scott! 🙂

Remmy on

I had a honeymoon baby three months ago 🙂

lika on

remmy, it’s lovely that you had a baby, but really, who cares?

Bethany on

@Bree-I was the exact same way! I saw the second line on the test and my first thought was to call my husband and I did lol.

Tee on

Mimi, while I might not have worded it the way you did, I actually kind of agree with you. I’m perfectly fine with “we’re expecting” but I don’t care for “we’re pregnant.” The woman is pregnant. A man can not be pregnant.

shelley on

Very exciting news! Congrats to the happy couple!

lynn on

You say we’re pregnant because it is happening to the couple together-unless it was an immaculant concepcian(sp?) Loved her on Las Vegas. Wish the show were still on. Also loved seeing Tom Selleck on there at the end, even though I missed Ed and Mary. Just watched repeats today.

Erika Chaney on

Mimi- I hate that too!! “We’re expecting” is correct 🙂

Congrats to them! And here are my thoughts on the whole: “We’re pregnant” thing. Just because men can’t physically be pregnant doesn’t mean they can’t be extremely involved during those nine months! For most couples (or at least most of the couples that I’ve known, my own parents included), pregnancy is very much a “joint project” if you will, for both of them.

They go to prenatal appointments and childbirth classes together, prepare for the baby together. Even pregnancy “side effects” affect both partners. Not only do men have to deal with their partner’s moodswings and such, but some even get “sympathy” symptoms (it’s called Couvade Syndrome)! The birth is also usually a joint effort, with the man coaching his partner through it (plus, it’s often very hard for men to see their partner in such pain).

So I can see why some couples say “we are pregnant”. Only one of them may be physically pregnant, but both are going through the journey to parenthood together!

Jen on

@mimi and jenn, I totally agree. First of all congrats to the couple, having the first baby is very exciting. I hate when people say that. And it’s ususally the fat chicks that are saying it. What it really means is “oh, and now I really get to eat for two!” The chick can deflect some of her pregnancy off on to the guy and kind of blame all the “baby” fat on her.

That’s just my take, seems like the cool chicks don’t say it. None of my crowd ever did, and we were pretty cool. And no, I am not 25 either. Glad my baby days are over and the kids are grown and they are alot funner now. Yeah, and I am not the soccer mom type either. They were all cheerleaders. LOL,

Jen on

i think it was meant to say “blame all the baby fat on him.”

Jessica on

Jen – With the trash-talking, immature vernacular, and made-up words, you sound more like you’re 15. Cringing at the thought that you are actually a mom of kids who are old enough to be cheerleaders. Yikes.

Trisha on

Congrats and best wishes. I miss VEGAS too!

Katie on

Wonderful news. So happy to hear she got pregnant on her own. Her age is not really on her side,and it gives me hope that it can happen! Wow lots of rude jealous comments on here. Can’t we grow up and be woman not highschool girls?

Shannon on

Congrats to Molly!

jennrae on

Jessica, I agree completely! What an asinine theory, and an even stupider way of communicating it! Only “fat chicks” say “we’re pregnant” because they aren’t cool? Maybe when Jen referred to herself as a “cool chick” what she really meant was “kook” and just spelled it wrong?

She said she’s not 25–that doesn’t mean she’s not 15. I’m trying really hard to convince myself that this woman isn’t the cool mom played by Amy Poehler in Mean Girls, because god help her children.

emily on

jennrae- I loved your last comment about the “cool mom” on mean girls. Jens comment reeked of that hilariously awful character. If you have daughters old enough of be cheerleaders, you shouldn’t still be saying things like “fat chicks” and “cool chicks”. I feel like I just fell down the rabbit hole back to 7th grade.

Rebec on

I also cringe whenever I hear a couple announce “We’re pregnant” but what really gets me nuts is when either expecting parents or couples with newborns proclaim that they are “Over the moon!” – It’s a Hollywood expression that has really worn out its welcome.

Tara on

wow! getting married before getting pregnant? what a concept! who knew it could still be done nowadays. and it looks like it was done naturally too … not all of this “Yeah I’m so old but I totally didn’t need any scientific intervention to get pregnant, I’m just lucky that way … and so are all the other 40+ women in Hollywood who have had babies. We’re just blessed! It must be the water.”

emily on

Tara- why so bitter? How they conceived is truly none of your business. Imagine how you would feel if the whole world felt entitled to know how your babies were made. It’s absurd. Get a life- you’re far too concerned with the sex lives of other people.

Anonymous on

Tara- Some probably ARE just blessed. It’s not an all or nothing thing (that is, obviously not all celebs in their 40s get pregnant naturally, but saying all celebs in their 40s using fertility treatments is equally untrue)!

MollyF on

Enough of the personal attacks on writers. People Magazine, I wish you could delete those threads. People who personally attack others show how immature they are. They want to look as good as the people they are attacking. They aren’t.

Amanda on

This website has gone to hell in a hand basket. Remember when everybody was civil and nobody attacked other posters for their posts or beliefs or what have you? This used to be such a nice place to come, and now it’s a real downer…some people are so catty and mean and just straight up rude to other people. Such a shame.

kendrajoi on

I hate that “over the moon” phrase too. WAY overused.

nascaar on

OMG dated, became engaged, married, and than started a family. how did it happen? finally, they way it should be done.

Hea on

I didn’t even know there were such a thing as honeymoon babies. Are there groundhog day babies as well?

Nancy on

They are a beautiful couple! Congrats! Babies are a blessing!

larsen on

She wants to feel morally superior by stating she waited to get pregnant after they got married. unlike all the immoral women that conceive out of wedlock. Whatever I hope she is making somebody proud.
