There really, really, really must be something in the water. Model/actress Devon Aoki, who, we lament, is more famous for being the heiress to the Benihana fortune than she is for her campaigns with Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Versace, is pregnant with fiance James Bailey‘s child.
Page Six reports that Aoki and Bailey have been engaged since last year, and that they’re both happily anticipating the birth of this child (which, we’re going to guess, will have one of the most beautiful and interesting faces of its generation — both of its parents are stunners). There’s no word on when the wedding will be, or when this child is due, but we’re guessing it won’t be long before all the details come together. In the meantime, Aoki is taking a break from acting after finishing filming on Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead. She was also in Sin City and something called 2 Fast 2 Furious.
It would be callous to call getting married, getting pregnant and giving birth among famous, beautiful women a trend, but there’s no doubting that it’s been happening a lot lately. Aoki joins other models Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes (and actress Natalie Portman, stylist Rachel Zoe, designer Victoria Beckham and editor Nina Garcia) in women-we-follow-at-Styleite who have become mothers (or found out that they would become mothers) in recent months.
