It's been a surprising week in celebrity news as A-list actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie revealed big news.

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Jolie explained that she decided to undergo breast removal surgery after discovering that she carries a cancer gene. Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died in January 2007 at the age of 56 after a 10-year battle with ovarian cancer. The 37-year-old actress admitted that she had the double mastectomy so that she can live her life with Brad Pitt and their six children.

Also this week, Angie Everhart revealed a health condition, announcing that she's been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The actress and model underwent surgery on May 14 and is expected to make a full recovery.

In happier news, Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz showed off their blossoming baby bumps, proving that some women look better pregnant. Berry, 46, looked flawless in a casual halter dress, while Cruz, 39, rocked a loose-fitting t-shirt as she visited her sister Monica, who just gave birth to a baby girl.

Finally, the week closed out with big news from Beyonce -- sort of. E! News reported several sources have confirmed the pop star is pregnant with her second child -- making sense out of her strangely bunched Givenchy outfit at the Met Gala two weeks ago and her abrupt concert cancellation earlier this week due to "dehydration and exhaustion."
