07/31/2014 at 07:45 AM ET

Surprise! Alicia Keys is getting ready for baby No. 2.

The “Girl on Fire” singer, 33, made the announcement with an adorable photo on Instagram, posing in a flowing white dress next to husband Swizz Beatz and showing off quite the baby bump — and also noting that Thursday happens to be the couple’s wedding anniversary.

“Happy anniversary to the love of my life,” Keys wrote. “And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many many more years of the best parts of life!”

Kelly Rowland Drops Hints About Baby Boy’s Name

07/31/2014 at 04:45 PM ET

Kelly Rowland‘s baby on the way really is destiny’s child.

“It was a surprise, I can definitely tell you that,” the expectant mom told PEOPLE while promoting Caress body wash in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “It was a great surprise!”

The singer, 33, is expecting her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon and said her pregnancy has been relatively easy. “I had no morning sickness,” Rowland said. “I feel great.”

Though Rowland said she’s had a “go with the flow” attitude when it comes to her changing body, she did admit it’s been a real adjustment.

“The most shocking thing about pregnancy to me is probably the way your body changes — nobody can prepare you for that. Not a book, not anything,” she said. “You just go through it.”

Mom-to-Be Kristen Bell Stuns on the Red Carpet

07/31/2014 at 02:30 PM ET

She’s glowing!

Kristen Bell was all smiles when she stepped out on Wednesday night for the Lexus Short Film Series, presented by The Weinstein Company in Los Angeles.

And although the actress — who is expecting her second child with husband Dax Shepard — kept her baby belly under wraps, she still stunned in a navy shift dress from Monique Lhuillier and nude pumps while carrying the Edie Parker Jean clutch.

While the House of Lies and Veronica Mars star may have already perfected her pregnancy style, playing the name game hasn’t been so easy.

Chris Pratt: My Premature Son ‘Restored My Faith in God’

07/30/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

For Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, starting a family was a no-brainer.

More accurately, it was (as things always are in their marriage) two brains acting as one.

“It started [for us] around the same time, and I don’t think one of us wanted it any more than the other,” says the Guardians of the Galaxy star, who talks with PEOPLE about fatherhood, marriage and his rise to fame in the magazine’s new issue. “She would say, ‘How do you feel about that?’ and I would say, ‘Damn, I’ve been kind of thinking about that too! I think that’d be cool. Let’s make that happen.'”

But when their son, Jack, was born nine weeks premature in August 2012, the couple felt a helplessness with which many parents are all too familiar.

“We were scared for a long time,” Pratt, 35, says of the month that his first-born spent in an intensive care unit. “We prayed a lot.”

He turned to his family and close friends for support. And even at the darkest of hours, he treasured every moment with his son.

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it,” the actor says. “The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.”
