Alessandra Ambrosio is pregnant with her first son, and she showed off her growing baby bump recently in a bikini. The supermodel turned 31 on Monday, and her picture was a way of saying thanks. She wrote to her Facebook fans, "Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes! Have a great weekend everybody!" We marked her milestone as well — check out Alessandra's best bikini pictures from over the years. Alessandra's off on vacation during a break from work. Alessandra also showed another recent photo from the beach to announce that she and fiancé Jamie Mazur are expecting a boy. Their new addition will make daughter Anja Mazur a big sister for the first time.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z celebrated their four-year anniversary yesterday, and today marks another milestone — Beyoncé's Tumblr just launched!

Victoria's Secret debuted their VS Swim Collection at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills this morning with Angels Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel dressed in bikinis. The brisk temperatures required an extra layer of clothing for Miranda and Candice, who slipped crochet tops over their bright two-piece swimsuits.
We were on hand for the event and chatted with the ladies about the new swim collection, their fitness secrets, and beauty tips. Miranda even dished about her yoga routine and said Flynn is a fan of downward dog — stay tuned for more on an upcoming PopSugar Rush! Miranda's back in LA following a visit to the Big Apple. Flynn and Miranda reunited with Orlando last week, and they're prepping for a big Saturday night party at their home. Miranda's hosting friends and family for a candlelit dinner while they observe this year's Earth Hour, which takes place March 31 at 8:30 p.m.
Selena Gomez lounged in a bikini and shared a picture of the relaxing afternoon on Twitter, writing, "Need sun again." She's in the Sunshine State to film Spring Breakers with pals Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson. They've been busy on set since last week, but Selena got away from production to celebrate her boyfriend Justin Bieber's 18th birthday on the West Coast over the weekend. Selena and Justin showed PDA during the bash, which was also attended by Ashley Tisdale and Carly Rae Jepsen. Justin kept the fun coming last night when he attended a Drake concert in LA with friends. Drake and Justin have apparently been working on new music, since they were snapped in the studio together just last month.
Kate Upton is the cover girl of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue! Her honor was revealed last night on the Late Show in NYC, where Kate spoke with host David Letterman about nabbing the front of the annual magazine. Kate's the latest in a long line of two-piece-clad models to claim the title — click through to see her bikini shots, and make sure to check out all the Sports Illustrated bikini pictures.
Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge are both moms-to-be, but they had no trace of growing baby bumps in these new Victoria's Secret images. The girls, along with fellow Angels Candice Swanepoel, Jasmine Tookes, and Edita Vilkevièiûtë, were photographed for the new swim catalog by Greg Kadel on Bora Bora last year.
Lily and Alessandra are the latest Angels to announce their pregnancies. Last year, Miranda Kerr welcomed her son, Flynn, and the year before, Karolina Kurkova became a mom. This will be newlywed Lily's first child with Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill, while Alessandra and her fiancé, Jamie Mazur, are already parents to 3-year-old Anja. Both Lily and Alessandra were pregnant while walking in the November VS runway show. Alessandra was afraid people would find out she was expecting, explaining, "When I first found out I was pregnant I thought, 'Oh my gosh I don't think I'm going to be able to walk on the show,' and I didn't tell anybody . . . A week before, I told my booker, 'I don't think I'm going to be able to fit into the clothes because I gained a few pounds already,' but we were just quiet."
Since the Caribbean island of Barbados is a direct flight from the UK, it's no wonder why lots of Brits jet set off to the warm weather this time of year. We've spotted Chloe Green, Rihanna and even Simon Cowell and Sinitta on the sandy white beaches recently. Barbados is often a hot holiday spot for Cheryl Cole and the Rooneys too. Miami is also a straight shot from the UK, and plenty easy to reach from anywhere in the states. Perhaps that's why Gabrielle Union was spotted frolicking on the beaches there earlier this week. Out of these three bikinis, which do you like best?
We know what you're thinking, because we're thinking it too. It's about time we get serious about planning a sun-drenched getaway before the Winter weather gets to us.

The Victoria's Secret runway extravaganza airs on CBS this evening! In honor of the big TV event, we're taking a look back at the show which was recorded at NYC's Lexington Avenue Armory on Nov. 9.
Between the musical acts and the amazing costumes on the angels, Nov. 9th was a night to remember. Candice Swanepoel was the first down the catwalk in the "Ballet" portion of the show, the first of six-themed sections that also included "Super Angels," "Passion," "Angels Aquatic," "I Put a Spell on You," and "Club Pink." They strutted, interestingly enough, to the song "You Make Me Want to Die" from Taylor Momsen's band, The Pretty Reckless! Candice was followed by Anja Rubik, Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, Chanel Iman, Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, and many more! This was a unique year from the company since they introduced at least 12 new models to the lineup.
It was hard to compete with the over-the-top outfits, gems, and wings, but the musical acts nearly did so. Kanye West was finally able to perform for VS after canceling his 2007 appearance after the sudden death of his mother, Donda West. He dedicated the event to her saying, "I lost my superhero, but now she's my superangel." Kanye went on to sing "Stronger" as the Angels walked by him on stage, then Jay-Z came out for an amazing duo on their Watch the Throne song "N*ggas in Paris." Beyoncé Knowles even came out to see Jay in action, taking a front-row seat only for the duration of the track. Jay and Kanye got the fashion crowd on their feet, and Orlando Bloom was seen doing a little fist pumping!
Orlando was front and center to cheer on his wife, Miranda. It was Miranda's first time on the VS runway since giving birth to Flynn at the beginning of the year. She took multiple turns down the catwalk and finally wore Victoria's Secret's $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra. Orlando gave Miranda a couple of standing ovations, as one of the most enthusiastic famous attendees, which also included Stephen Dorff, Lake Bell, Maxwell, Jack Huston, Lala Vasquez, and Gossip Girl's Matthew Settle.
In addition to Jay and Kanye, Maroon 5 performed "Moves Like Jagger" and lead singer Adam Levine broke from the band temporarily to place a big kiss on the cheek of his angel girlfriend, Anne V. Earlier in the day while backstage, Anne V said she and Adam planned the moment. She said, "I'm a model, he's a singer, we're just doing our jobs and just happen to be together, so maybe we'll do a cute moment but nothing crazy. I'm very excited to have him next to me, it's very special." Nicki Minaj wrapped things up with a rendition of "Super Bass," with newcomer Karlie Kloss closing the show in her fluorescent wings.
Mila Kunis donned bikini bottoms for the December "Men of the Year" edition of GQ. Mila was the lone woman to earn a distinction in the issue, being crowned the "Knockout" of 2011. She posed for photographer Terry Richardson both in-studio and at a pool, where she took to a diving board in heels. She broke from shooting Oz: The Great and Powerful to speak with one of the magazine's reporters about moving to the US as a child from the Ukraine. After making the writer a cold remedy that involved boiling wine, vodka, and various vitamins, she also joked about how she doesn't take her work too seriously. Mila said:
- On moving to the US from Ukraine in second grade: "My English was a little janky. I didn't have very many friends. And there was this place advertised on the radio as a place for kids to meet other kids — an acting class. My parents couldn't afford a babysitter. They said, 'Great, that takes up our Saturday.'"
- On not taking herself too seriously: "I love what I do, but my theory is that it's people who doubt what they do and want to prove it to you, they're like 'It's art. I create art. It's art, art, art.' I'm like, Holy sh-t, are you f-cking kidding me? I run around and pretend I'm someone else for twelve hours; I record Family Guy. Then I get to go home and watch Jersey Shore."
