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.

    MAMACITA!!! Congratulations, Salma. Wishing you and your future husband much happiness. I hope it’s a GIRL!!!

  • Maldoror

    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.

  • Liz

    Not bad, not bad at all! I always wished Salma found a man who deserved her. Not complaining but dude is he rich or what?

  • Ruth

    Congratulations to Salma and her partner on the engagement and, more importantly, the pregnancy. She is a lovely under-valued actress.

  • tia

    Thank God ,cause those last photos of her were very scary

  • Jenny

    The original pictures of Salma Hayek candids does not show that big of a baby bump:) The picture that’s posted is manipulated.

  • Rii

    Congratulations to Salma and her partner! I hope they will have a healthy baby and a happy life together!

  • MJC

    I am so happy for her.

  • Gussie

    That bump is bizarre. :) Didn’t know lovely Salma was 40. Congrats!

  • Donna

    That’s wonderful! Congrats to Salma and her future husband!

    I bet Penelope will be the godmother.:)

  • sally

    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???

  • angelina_mmm

    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…

  • meemee35

    I agree that her boyfriend looks older than 44 ! Nontheless, congrats to them both.

  • anustin


  • dee

    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

    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

    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.

  • squid

    aw congrats to them! she’s awesome :)

  • Charlotte

    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.

  • Alexanderina

    Congrats to Salma and her fiance, that is great

  • stranger

    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

    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.

  • Julie

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

  • G.

    Salma is a very wealthy woman, both by birth and by her work. I find it very prejudiced of people to imply she chose her boyfriend because he is richer than her.

  • Mediterranean

    You are a bunch of sick-in-mind people!!!

    You have not been asked to be with this guy. Salma loves him and is pregnant with their baby. This is the most important thing.

    Because he is rich, French and looks older than his age, do you really think that this relationship will not last? You are truly sick in mind people.

  • angelah

    Whoo congrats to her and Francois! Yes, the photo (belly) has been manipulated.

  • dee

    i love salma and think she is a beautiful, hard working, smart woman but i am not stereotyping her because she is mexican. her heavy accent shows her class and she does not have an uppercrust or neutral spanish accent when she speaks. i know a few boarding-schooled latin americans and they do not have heavy accents when they speak other languages. they’ve been taught by the best teachers and know that accents can show where you are from financially & socially. besides, she wouldn’t have taken on soap roles or play a table dancing demon if she was born rich. she has worked for her money. many wealthy folks don’t…
    so please don’t put words into my mouth. no one is stereotyping here.

  • Anon.

    What amuses me most is that Salma could be in a relationship and get pregnant and engaged and no one seemed to know about it! The crazy gossip bloggers and tabloids were so preoccupied with the “gay angle” they missed the bigger story. They do that a lot.

  • piper, with a low

    I’m not too crazy about Jared’s use of doctored pics, ie Giselle.

    What’s up with that, Jared? LOL!!

  • Rose

    People have got to be more discerning. It’s obvious that photo is not a currrent one of Salma. She was at the Golden Globes as flat as a panckae. That’s probably a still from a scene in a movie or an altrered pic. That is certainly not her currently pregnant.!!

    Virgo you are right. Tom Cruise is 45, Pitt 44…this guy looks at least 15 years older than them. Baby probably needs to stick with the Hayek genes.

  • Kanye

    I ain\’t saying she\’s a gold digger, but…

  • Observer

    #21. Good that you pointed out her birth backround.

    So, on second thought, maybe this is a very suitable and natural match. He still looks much older.

  • angelah

    piper, with a low Says:
    yup LOL

  • pipi

    wow congrats, don’t know his reputation but I hope they’re a good match.

  • hi

    wait a minute…being a millionaire and being billionaire are 2 different worlds.
    i remember reading that salma admitted to being home shopping network junkie. billionaires don’t know what HSN is and if they do, they probably think it’s where you can buy your mansions online.
    guaranteed they will have an airtight pre-nup. she will make a cute mom though.

  • Mediterranean

    The kid will be speaking English either with Spanish accent or French. :)

    One can speak French or Spanish, one can learn to speak the other one very easily.

  • madmax

    that photo is doctored. I have seen it on other sites and the bump is about 1/2 that size.

  • Frenchy

    Salma can pick em. Francois is really cool. this must have the fashion crowd’s tongues wagging today. LOL!!! Congrats to Salma & Francois. What an international baby they will have.

  • maxine

    Congratulations to Salma, I knew she was expecting. I saw pix of her coming out of a fertility clinic last year so I wonder if she was trying to get pregnant for a while. I think it’s a good choice for a husband: rich, older, not in showbusiness, not a rock star or a country music star with a drug problem, obviously cares for her if they’re engaged. It DOES seem strange that she was in a serious relationship that nobody knew about but whatever… if he wants to take care of her, I don’t inquire about their motives. I love Ed Norton but he’s was crazy to let her go.

  • EnglishRose

    Isn’t it amazing what a good plastic surgeon can do?

  • KrUnG kRuNg

    how far along is she? that pic JJ posted w/a purple dress the bump looks weird, did yah doctored/fotoshopped that JJ? happy 4 Salma H. but i doubt if she n that french guy will lasts, i mayb wrong but am sticking 2 my words u watch hehe

  • JON

    The guy looks about 55 but hey love is blind right?? Money makes him more appealing i guess…ah well congrats

  • http://SALMA sarah

    she is lebaneze, he is french,
    the baby boy will be what ???
    she is rich, will be richer, maybe not
    if she sign a prenup!!!
    Wish them luck, don’t forget the future groom(I hope he will marry her)

    must smell good is!
    She is and will be working,
    is not the type to stay home
    and wipe the children, wish them more than 1 child,and not adopeted!!

  • sue

    That picture of her in the purple dress has been completely altered. She is not nearly that big yet. Terrible photoshop job.

  • Canadian Chick

    Jared: I was just going through the Forbes Website and They have this man listed there and they have him listed as 70 YEARS OLD. I think Forbes is a pretty credible site and he looks about 70.

    Here is the link:

  • Mediterranean


    It’s his father, for God’s sake!

  • Mediterranean

    The name of the father is Fran├žois. The son’s name is Fran├žois-Henri who is engaged to Salma.

  • Karen

    #46…..THAT’S HIS DAD!!

    Good for her!!
