And a baby makes three for “Orange is the New Black Star” Laura Prepon. The former “That 70s show” star and her fiancé, Ben Foster, are reportedly expecting a sweet bundle of joy. Neither Prepon nor Foster has confirmed the news, but she definitely had a glow to her at the Sundance Film festival. An insider reports, "Ben seemed really protective and kept very close to Laura the entire night. He was holding on to her arm as they walked in and kept by her side during the dinner… Neither of them got up much to mingle. They definitely enjoyed dinner. I noticed she finished her plate." The two got engaged last year and she debuted her engagement ring to the world at the ‘Girl On The Train’ premiere. Her ‘70’s Show’ co-star Ashton Kutcher was surprised by her engagement, telling Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly, “Like, I shouldn’t find out when I get off the plane!”
