Salma Hayek: Pregnant & Engaged!

Salma Hayek: Pregnant & Engaged!

Yes, that Salma Hayek is pregnant AND engaged!

As first reported by The New York Daily News‘s Gatecrash columnist Ben Widdicome via, Latina bombshell Salma, 40, and French billionaire buisnessman Francois-Henri Pinault, 44, are expecting their very first child together later this year.

Says Salma‘s publicist, Ina Treciokas of ID Public Relations: “Businessman, Francois-Henri Pinault, and his fiancee, Salma Hayek, are happy to announce they are expecting the arrival of their first child.”

Since the day he was born, Francois-Henri had money growing out of his ears. His father, tycoon Francois Pinault (second picture below), is the founder of retail company PPR and ranked no. 74 among the world’s richest people in 2006.

Currently, Francois-Henri is the CEO of PPR, which basically runs the luxury-goods market. PPR owns big brands Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Balenciaga.

Salma was last spotted leaving King Road Cafe in Hollywood on Sunday, March 4 (above). Francois-Henri was last seen in Paris, announcing the 2006 financial results for PPR yesterday, March 8 (third and fourth pictures below).

Congratulations to newly engaged couple! Let the baby bump watch officially begin!

First and second pictures below: Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek and papa Francois Pinault at the opening of an art show entitled “Where are We Going?” at the made-over Palazzo Grassi palace in Venice, Italy on April 29, 2006.

UPDATE :: Francois-Henri, who was once romantically linked to Nicole Kidman, was previously married and already has two children.

    It’s “Salma”, but whatevs … anyway, this would explain the fug outfit and inability to have her hair straightened with chemicals. For sure this cannot be “love”, but who needs love when you get a few billion dollars for marrying “old boy”? Still, at least it will put the Lesbian rumors to rest for awhile. Just kiddin’. Not really. ;)

    Congratulations Salma! This certainly is turning out to be one of your best years yet.

    I love how when a single gal announces her pregnancy all of a sudden she is engaged to the father….call it what it is people…I guess they should be applauded for trying to keep morality alive although they aren’t fooling anyone..and BTW doesn’t her ‘finace’ look waay older than 44???

    Salma Hayek looking baby (or babies) with blon hair and blue eyes ;)
    This guy can’t be 44? Brad Pitt looks better than him. And that guy was born billionaire. Oh, my…

    that explains why she was so hormonally emotional at the globes this year. hmm…this seems to be a very strategic man choice on her part. their class difference and ethnic backgrounds are so polar opposite that it can’t last.
    doesn’t matter. now she will be RICHER THAN OPRAH and her baby will wear nothing but luxury goods. let’s hope baby looks more like her than him.

    piper, with a low Says:

    Congrats to Salma for:

    1. Keeping this relationship undercover

    2. Keeping her pregnancy undercover and private

    3. Never cowtowing to the HW belief that a woman must wear her personal life on her chest like it’s a badge of honor

    4. Balancing professional endeavors (Ugly Betty) with her personal pursuits

    5. Never whining about not having/finding a man

    6. Never whining about her ‘biological clock’ or turning/being 40 (I didn’t know that)

    And dozens of things that the public, entertainment journalists and gossip bloggers don’t know about.

    Congrats, big time!!

    Observer Says:

    I agree also: he looks older than 44. She looks younger than 40, though.

    She maybe a good actress, and of course, “financially independent”. But the first appearance of this relationship to me is money buying beauty and sex. There might be people who consider her “ugly” just as those who talked about a celeb’s baby being ugly, but I think Salma qualifies as a symbol of female beauty and sex.

    She may not be from the same kind of wealth (who is??) as this guy, but to whoever said they were polar opposites due to class is very wrong. That shows how you are stereotyping her because she is Mexican. Salma is the daughter of a wealthy Mexican businessman and her mother was an opera singer. She grew up in luxury, attended private schools and was even kidnapped once as a child for ransom. She is not unaccustomed to wealth as she has had it all her life. This guy is just wealthier than most.

    Great news, good for Salma!
    She has been talking about having a baby for a while.

    But why did they photoshop the picture? I saw a series of pics of her from that day and this one is soooooo manipulated. It’s so stupid.

    Virgo Says:

    Is the guy really just 44 years old? she looks about 60 yrs. Brad is 43 and George 45, the guys is way too old than them.

    This Picture has been doctored. I’ve seen it many other places, and there is no bump like that in the pic.
