Coco Austin: I Was ‘Bawling’ Before I Told Ice-T I Was Pregnant

07/31/2015 at 11:45 PM ET

When his wife Nicole “Coco” Austin came running down the stairs crying one day, Ice-T immediately froze. The rapper turned actor assumed there had been a tragedy in the family.

“I took the test and when I found out, I ran downstairs. He was on the computer and I was bawling, screaming. He thought someone died,” she tells PEOPLE.

But it turns out they were happy — and nervous — tears: Austin was pregnant! “He was just as surprised as me,” she admits of finding out they were expecting their first child together.

“I was so thrown off that our pregnancy happened really fast,” Austin, 36, shares. “It happened out of the blue, and I was like, ‘Wow, wait a second!’ I was told it was going to take a lot longer than it [did] so it threw me off.”

Baby Girl on the Way for Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

07/31/2015 at 02:10 PM ET

Facebook’s newest user is on her way.

Mark Zuckerberg took to his social media platform on Friday to announce that he and his wife, pediatrician Priscilla Chan, are expecting a baby girl.

“This will be a new chapter in our lives,” he wrote. “We’ve already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people’s lives around the world — Cilla as a doctor and educator, and me through this community and philanthropy. Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.”

The 31-year-old mogul, who married Chan in 2012, also opened up about the couple’s struggles to conceive.

“We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.

“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone. It’s a lonely experience. Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you — as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.

With her second child — a son! — due in September, Jessie James Decker has finally put the finishing touches on her baby boy’s nursery.

And the soon-to-be mom of two has scored a major touchdown with the vintage sleep space, designed by Decker with the help of Joss & Main‘s style director.

“I knew I always wanted a sports-theme room. As soon as I got pregnant with him and knew it was a boy, I just felt like it fit his personality!” Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE.

“I think when people do the animal themes, they are cute and all, but it just didn’t feel like this little guy. He feels like a cool sports dude already.”
