(Newser) – Their timing couldn't be better. Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou earned Harper’s Bazaar's couple-of-the-moment title just as rumors began flying that Simmons is pregnant. “He’s a reality check for me, and I’m a fabulosity check for him,” says Simmons of her beau. The flamboyant entrepreneur and reality TV star met Hounsou, a fashion model and Oscar-nominated actor, last February.

Two years after her split with long-time paramour Russell Simmons, Simmons’ dating life was still spotty. Pal Tyra Banks even dubbed her “a little socially retarded.” But a group date with Hounsou changed all that. "She has a good man," he says. "Hopefully a good man more than a man that looks good." Neither has commented on the pregnancy buzz.
