Happy New Year!

Because I have my priorities straight, I'm going to share the latest celeb news and THEN go look for a house to live in. Actually, I'm joking, our appointments aren't until a little later, so I have some time to spare. But I don't have that much time — hence the Rob Mariano story... But, just so you know, I'm a huge Boston Rob fan, so I did *gasp* when I saw this news and thought some of you might *gasp,* too. Checkit!

Survivor winners Rob and Amber Mariano are expecting their fourth child! They met and fell in love playing Survivor — she won; he came in second — got married in the Bahamas in 2005, and now they're expecting their fourth child together!

Yes, baby No. 4 is on the way for "Boston Rob" Mariano (who went on to win Survivor All Stars playing the most brilliant game the show has ever seen), 38, and his wife, Amber, 35. They announced the big news on Twitter, Tuesday, December 31:

“My wife Amber is so hot, I can’t keep my hands off her… Here is to 2014!!! #4," Rob tweeted, along with a photo of the ultrasound.

Rob and Amber already have three girls — Lucia Rose, 4.5, Carina Rose, 3, and Isabetta Rose, 20 months. That's going to be one very busy household!


Hilary Duff returns to Disney Well, not in a real headline-making kind of way. Basically, the former Disney star — Lizzie Mcguire! — went to Disneyland, in Anaheim, California, with her sweet fam and tweeted a pic of it. Because so many of you voted for her for our 2014 Celebrity Mom of the Year, I thought I'd share...

Awww! There she is with her little guy, Luca Cruz, 21-months, and hubby Mike Comrie. This was Luca's first Disney experience, so it was a big moment for them.

“We braved Disneyland yesterday!" Hilary tweeted, along with the above photo. "Luca’s 1st time." Cute mouse ears!
