The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels isn’t just training people anymore, she’s dressing them, too! Michaels just announced that she teamed up with K-Swiss to launch a line of workout gear named The Jillian Michaels Collection by K-Swiss. The vintage-inspired line features sweats, leggings, bras and tees in shades of pink, green, aqua, white and black, all priced from $32 to $90. The best part is that a portion of the proceeds are going to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a non-profit organization devoted to reducing childhood obesity rates and empowering kids to make healthy lifestyle decisions (Michaels was overweight as a child). Nordstrom and Amazon.com are set to stock the collection by mid-April. Check out a sneak peek in the gallery!

David Beckham confirmed the news that wife Victoria is expecting their first daughter! The pair, who married in 1999, already has three boys: 11-year-old Brooklyn, eight-year-old Romeo, and five-year-old Cruz. “Obviously, we’re very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I’m going to say it: It’s a little girl,” the soccer star told ESPN. “We’re still in shock. Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon,” he added. “Our three boys are happy and excited, and Victoria is doing well.” The baby girl is due in July, three months after the couple plans to attend the Royal Wedding. Congrats to the happy couple!
