Carnie Wilson Says She's Pregnant

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 15) - Carnie Wilson, whose gastric bypass surgery five years ago was broadcast on the Internet, is expecting her first child.
Wilson, a member of the female trio Wilson Phillips, announced her pregnancy in an interview to air Wednesday on "Entertainment Tonight."

She and her husband, musician Rob Bonfiglio, have been married for four years.

"I am expecting my first child. I can't believe it. It's such a miracle, such a beautiful miracle," Wilson told the syndicated entertainment TV show.

"It won't be a problem eating for two - that's the good part!" she added.

She didn't disclose the baby's due date.

"My husband thinks we're going to have a girl and we've already named her - Lola Brianna," said Wilson, the 36-year-old daughter of Beach Boy Brian Wilson.

She lost 150 pounds after she underwent gastric bypass surgery in August 1999.

Members of Wilson Phillips are Wilson; her sister, Wendy Wilson; and Chynna Phillips, daughter of John and Michelle Phillips of the '60s group The Mamas and the Papas.

I wonder if having a stomach staple screws up a pregnancy or something. When I was pregnant with the twins, I ate like a pig, which of course was a 1,000 calorie a day diet by today's standards because people weren't slothful gluttons in the 40's, but how can she eat for two when she has a stomach for a 1/2?

Well it's about time she went through with it. I mean, let's face it, she looked pregnant for at least 10 years.

This is great news for her because I remember her saying on the Howard Stern show that she really wanted to have a family like her sister, Wendy, and her other band member, Chynna (both of whom are currently pregnant).

I'm very happy for Carnie...that is wonderful news for her, but what is UP with all these celebrities naming children "Lola"? No offense to any Lolas on the board, but it brings to mind a stripper or "showgirl" (thanks to Barry!). Honestly....this is like the fourth Lola I have heard of in celebrities, but I don't see a lot of Lolas running around in the real world.
