Baby #4 on the way for ETHAN HAWKE!

Can I just tell you, Gorgeouses? When I was a kid, I had the most HUMONGOUS crush I’ve ever had on a celebrity (not including my current crush on Clive Owen, Russell Brand and Will Ferrell…among others). I even wrote a letter to him JUST to make contact. I’m pretty sure I heard back from his people. If memory serves, I received an autographed photo in the mail and carefully kissed it over and over again before gluing it to the headboard of my bed.

ETHAN HAWKE. I was head over heals for ETHAN HAWKE. My gosh, the movie Before Sunrise almost killed me.

I don’t think I’ve ever really talked about this before, and I’m not sure I should. But the dude’s going to be a daddy for the 4th time, so congratulations are in order.

This will be the second child for Ethan (40) and his wife Ryan Shawhughes, who wed in 2008 and gave birth to their daughter Clementine that July. The pregnancy has not officially been confirmed, but sources close to the couple gave the scoop. Apparently Ryan is already 5 months along, and Clementine “really wants a little brother” — although no one knows the baby’s gender yet.

Ethan also has two children with his former wife of six years Uma Thurman — Maya (12) and Levon (9). Ethan and Uma divorced back in 2004.

I’ll keep you posted! To my younger self’s extreme surprise, I no longer swoon over Ethan Hawke. But OH the memories!

Who was your celebrity crush growing up?? Any big ones?
