Ben Foster & Laura Prepon Are Expecting Their First Child!

Did you know that one of Laura Prepon's favorite foods is raw almond butter.  She loves it to bits. I think that is good especially now that she's expecting her child with Ben Foster.  Nuts are a good source of protein and folate needed for a healthy pregnancy. During pregnancy, nuts nutritional benefits includes high protein and a healthy fat content. Most nuts contain between 160 and 200 calories per 1-ounce serving. Just don't over indulged.

A pregnancy announcement is most often good news that we’re all excited to share. Especially when it’s coming from our favorite celebs. Adding to the list of pregnant celebs this year is Laura Prepon & Ben Foster. Yay!  We are so happy for this lovely couple!

Back in October, we were all surprised to see Laura Prepon, 31 and her soon-to-be-husband, Ben Foster, 36, attending the El Lay premiere of The Girl on the Train as an ENGAGED couple! Three months after, sources say that the Orange is the New Black star and the Hell or High Water actor are now expecting their first bun in the oven.

This celebrity pair are known to keep their personal life quiet as much as possible that even their close friends didn’t know about their engagement until they officially announced it in the media. Although some of us may want to know the details of their lives, we have to understand that even though they’re public figures, they have the right to choose what information they want to share with the public eye.

During the Spotlight Awards for the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, according to an on-looker:

"Ben seemed really protective and kept very close to Laura the entire night. He was holding on to her arm as they walked in and kept by her side during the dinner… Neither of them got up much to mingle. They definitely enjoyed dinner. I noticed she finished her plate."

You can’t take that feeling of being protected away from Ben Foster, can you? I mean, he’s a first time dad, and the love of his life is carrying another human being which he will surely love too. 

Congratulations on the wonderful news! We are all excited to know the baby’s gender!

Note: There are pros and cons of peanut ingestion in pregnancy. If you have a strong family history of allergies, talk to your doctor about whether he feels you should avoid peanuts in pregnancy.
