"X-Men" director Bryan Singer will raise his baby with the woman who is carrying it ... TMZ has learned.
Turns out, sources familiar with the situation tell us ... Michelle Clunie will raise the baby as her own after he or she is born. She will be listed as the mother on the birth certificate. She is NOT a surrogate.
We're told Bryan and Michelle have been friends for years and he's wanted this baby for a long time.
Our sources say the 2 are not romantically involved, but rather extremely close friends.
Contrary to reports, we're told Michelle will not get paid for carrying the baby, but Bryan will cover living expenses ... which is roughly equivalent to informal child support. He's already purchased a place for her to live just doors down from his West Hollywood home.
And our sources say ... the decision to have a baby was made long before Michael Egan accused Singer of molesting him when he was a minor. Egan dropped his lawsuit against Singer.

I'm Havin' a Baby

"X-Men" director Bryan Singer is having a baby ... and the baby mama is his longtime friend ... TMZ has confirmed.
Michelle Clunie is now living a few houses away from Singer ... something he clearly wanted because he bought the West Hollywood pad so she could be close to him.
Our sources say she's around 7 months pregnant.
We're also told the decision to have a baby has nothing to do with the recent accusations by a man who claimed Singer sexually assaulted him when he was a minor ... something Singer denies. The accuser dropped his lawsuit against Singer.
Soap Star Crystal Hunt
You Killed My Future Baby
... Claims Victim
10/22/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
5:30 P.M. PDT -- Hunt's lawyer told TMZ ... Nam was wasted at the time of the confrontation and threatened Hunt repeatedly by shouting, "You're dead!" He added, anyone who would talk about killing an unconceived future child "has likely got some psychological issues."
Crystal Hunt is a killer -- a killer of dreams -- according to a woman who got into a vicious bar brawl with the soap actress and believes the assault destroyed any chance she had for having a baby.
TMZ broke the story ... Hunt was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon ... after shattering a water glass on Elizabeth Nam's face last December ... causing bloody cuts and gashes.
According to court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Nam says the attack has ruined her life ... she says she had been "actively searching for a mate," adding, "the assault might have killed my future baby, due to my biological clock ticking."
Translation: She's saying her physical appearance and emotional state makes her undesirable to men.
Nam claims she's seen an army of doctors, including a plastic surgeon to fix the scars on her face ... and a shrink to fix the emotional scars ... and is adamant Hunt should go to prison.
Probation officials are recommending Hunt serve 6 months in jail. They also want her to enroll in an anger management program and pay Nam restitution.
Pregnant Woman Sues
Over Chainsaw Horror
10/21/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Halloween at Busch Gardens became a real-life nightmare for a pregnant woman who claims she was mowed down by other terrified patrons ... after chainsaw-wielding actors created a panic in the park.
Brittany Lipscomb claims she was at the Williamsburg, VA theme park 2 years ago -- for a ghoul's night out -- and was being extra careful for her safety since she was pregnant.
In her lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Lipscomb says the park hired costumed characters to chase people around with chainsaws ... causing them to run recklessly through the park.
Lipscomb claims she was knocked to the ground by the stampede ... suffering serious injuries -- including emotional distress for the well being of her unborn child. She never says if the kid was actually hurt ... but now she's suing for $25K.
We'll throw this out there ... maybe something called Howl-O-Scream isn't the best place to be when you're pregnant. Just sayin'.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Baby's Name Revealed
Inspired By Her Own Movie?
10/9/2014 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes' baby name may have been inspired by one of the characters she played in a Mark Wahlberg movie.
Gosling and Mendes named their daughter Esmeralda Amada ... according to the baby's birth certificate, obtained by TMZ.
Amada was the name of Eva's character in "We Own the Night" -- and Esmeralda, well ... maybe she's a big fan of the '96 Disney flick "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."
And we also got the birth certificate of Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, the newborn of Ashton and Mila Kunis. Nothing that interesting ... except for the doctor who delivered the kid. She's Ruth Cousineau, a big celebrity doctor in L.A. She's also been criticized on Yelp for favoring celebs. One person wrote:
"And God help you if a celebrity walks in -- late for her own appointment. She'll be whisked right in ahead of you, and given every attention and royal treatment until you actually put your clothes back on and threaten to leave."

My Babies Have Exquisite Kardashian Style
10/8/2014 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Retired "Girls Gone Wild" owner Joe Francis and his girlfriend just gave birth to twin Mexican girls -- well, technically, since she gave birth in Mexico -- and the newborn babes already have a fairy godmother -- Kris Jenner.
Joe's partner, Abbey, delivered two healthy girls -- Alexandria Claire and Athena Olivia -- Tuesday at a hospital in Puerto Vallarta ... and since they were born in Mexico, they're automatically given Mexican citizenship.
Sources close to the family tell us ... the babies are already being showered with gifts ... including pink Hermes blankets and Hermes clothing courtesy of Kris Jenner and the Kardashians.
The couple -- who live in Punta Mita -- conceived the girls through in vitro fertilization -- which can allow parents to choose the sex and other characteristics of their child. Francis said they chose IVF to make sure their babies were healthy and free of genetic illnesses.
Paulina Gretzky & Dustin
We'd Be Pumped ...
If Our Fetus Turned Pro!
10/8/2014 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's got all the right genes ... a PGA dad and an NHL legend grandpa ... but are Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky hoping their fetus takes up golf or hockey??
The newly engaged -- and newly pregnant -- couple were out at LAX yesterday when we asked ... if the kid goes pro in a sport -- are you hoping it picks up the clubs or the sticks?
You can tell Dustin's excited about his baby on the way -- but when we asked about the due date, he wouldn't get into specifics.
The question ... how long after the birth 'til the kid has an agent?
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis
Jacked Their Baby's Name
From Tiger's #1 Ex-Mistress??
10/3/2014 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis probably never imagined naming their baby Wyatt would tie them to Tiger Woods, but it has ... and the connection lies with Rachel Uchitel.
Tiger's side piece number uno named her daughter Wyatt 2.5 years ago and even owns a baby clothing boutique in New York City called Wyatt Lily.
The shared baby name has actually been good for Uchitel's bottom line -- a friend of Mila and Ashton's actually spent a huge chunk of change on baby gifts ... from Rachel's store!
Now get this ... according to a baby blog, Mila and Ashton were gifted a pair of camouflage crawling pants from Wyatt Lily all the way back in April.
So, it's entirely possible the Wyatt labeled clothing inspired Mila and Ashton.
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis
Baby Mystery Solved!
10/3/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis revealed their baby in a shroud of mystery Thursday night ... but TMZ has cracked the code and can say definitely, positively, absolutely which baby is theirs ... well, that's what we think.
In case you missed it, the couple posted six baby photos (plus a dog and a llama) ... revealing one was Wyatt ... the rest were just random babies (plus the dog and llama).
But our crack photo team figured it out ... only one of the babies was wearing the swaddle and cap that are uniquely provided by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center ... where Mila gave birth Tuesday morning.
The llama comes in second.
Ashton & Mila
Reveal Baby's Name
... And Maybe Her Face
10/2/2014 6:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are announcing their baby girl's name -- Wyatt Isabelle -- but what she looks like remains a bit of a mystery. Maybe.
Ashton revealed the name on his company's website late Thursday, saying ... "Mila and I would like to welcome Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher to the world." But then he added a game ... by including 6 baby pics in the post and saying ONE of them is theirs.
Honestly, we think they're all the same baby ... with a couple of exceptions. Check out the gallery of options. We're pretty sure it's NOT the black one. Maybe.
We broke the story ... Wyatt was born with little fanfare Tuesday morning in L.A.
Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
Dude, Here's Our Baby!
10/1/2014 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher just wrapped up their newest production -- in diapers -- Mila has given birth to a baby girl ... TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Mila's womb tell us ... Mila delivered Tuesday night at Cedars-Sinai -- the hospital of choice for many celebrities.
We're told they arrived at the hospital Tuesday around 6 A.M. ... and were taken right to a delivery room.
They came by themselves -- no entourage, no family.
Sources tell us Mila delivered right on schedule ... and delivered right around the Jewish New Year.
Taxes, Schmaxes ...
I Gotta See Snooki's Baby!
9/26/2014 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Situation is so confident he'll beat the federal tax fraud rap he's facing ... he'd rather talk about more important things -- like Snooki popping out another kid.
Sitch was leaving a vitamin store in NJ Friday morning when a photog tried to grill him about the tax charges, but when he found out Snooki had delivered ... he was all about the baby.
Interesting that Situation didn't know already -- apparently he and his 'Jersey Shore' co-star don't stay in touch that much anymore.
His excuse for missing the news though was classic GTL.
My Baby Was Born
... ON CAMERA!
9/26/2014 10:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If you wanted to see what Snooki giving birth looks like ... you're in luck, and also a little twisted.
Snooki popped out a baby girl named Giovanna Marie at 4:28 AM Friday morning -- and we're told it was filmed for "Snooki & Jwoww." Of course, the show airs on MTV ... not Nat Geo ... so we're told there won't be anything too graphic.
Sources close to Snooks tell us the reality star popped sooner than expected ... but she ended up having an incredibly easy delivery. No co-stars were on deck for the birthing, just family.
Don't go looking for any special meaning to the 6 pound, 7 oz bambina's name. Snooki's rep Stacey Wechsler tells us ... Snook has just always loved the sound of it.
