Moonves, 59, who married Chen, 37, four years ago, has three grown children from his first marriage. Chen, who’s due to give birth in October, will have to take maternity leave from The Early Show and Big Brother, whose fans have been speculating for more than two years about whether she was expecting or not. Well, now she is.
Explaining her growing bump, Chen joked that “it wasn’t a big Sunday at the buffet table. I’m starting to show now! I’m not taking maternity leave from Big Brother. I e-mailed my boss over there this weekend and I said, ‘Don’t worry. I can still do the show!’” Is her boss Moonves or is that just at home? Oh well, congrats to all.
