Danielle Fishel Karp and Jensen Karp are going to have a little shrimp running around! The Boy Meets World actress celebrated her 40th birthday with a surprise: another baby boy is on the way!

"F O R T Y! I've never been more excited or hopeful for the next decade of my life," she wrote alongside a photo showing off her baby bump in a floral dress. "I had a beautiful childhood, teenage years I still dream about, my 20's were insane (and mostly miserable), and my 30's brought me lows and highs but eventually I leveled out to a place of security. Security in who I am, what I believe, and with whom I want to spend precious time."

She continued, "I couldn't be more grateful to enter my 40's with my amazing husband and son, excitedly expecting the arrival of baby boy #2. My birthday wish is for all of you to tell someone how much you love them and walk through today with more patience than you normally might."

Karp, known for his viral Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp scandal earlier this year, also shared the news on his Instagram page. "Happy 40th birthday to my life partner, a team captain and the greatest mom to our now soon-to-be 2 boys," he wrote. "She believes in our squad, and even when I held a newborn Adler like he was a fragile piece of china for the first 4 months, she had the patience and care of a saint. My heart was made to be here with her, and though she should be celebrated every day, today is a milestone occasion. Love you"

We are so excited for this boy to meet world!

Ellie Goulding is pregnant! The "Lights" singer revealed she was pregnant in a special virtual pregnancy shoot with Vogue. She revealed to the publication that she and her husband found out she was pregnant on their one-year wedding anniversary.

"That was not the plan," she said. "The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality. Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but]—I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.”

As for a gender reveal? Her and hubby Jopling won't be participating. "“It’s not a focus for me,” she says. “We found out by default because we had a scan. [But,] it wasn’t a thing. We just wanted a healthy baby and there wasn’t much more to it. Instinctively, the whole gender reveal is not my thing.”
