(Newser) – You may have heard of a certain high-profile wedding this past Saturday—but did you know the bride was pregnant? No, not Chelsea Clinton: Alicia Keys, who married producer Swizz Beatz. In her honor, The Frisky lists seven other celebrity shotgun weddings:

  • James Van Der Beek: The Dawson’s Creek star was yet another celeb to get married this weekend, hitching himself to pregnant galpal Kimberly Brook.

  • Orlando Bloom: Miranda Kerr is supposedly pregnant, but the couple—who secretly wed in July—has yet to confirm it.
  • Jodie Sweetin: The Full House star married babydaddy DJ Morty Coyle after three months. She calls him “Papa Bear,” a source claims.
  • Ashlee Simpson: The pregnancy rumors that came before their May 2008 wedding turned out to be true.
