2 New rings: Both Minnie and Colin have been spotted with new rings on their ring fingers. To add to the flurry of rumors that Colin’s the daddy, Minnie’s ring has a green stone in it, which sources say alludes to the Emerald Isle, Colin’s birth country of Ireland.

5 Dublin visits: Minnie, who lives in Los Angeles, made a visit to Dublin in April when she was five months pregnant. They were never snapped together, but Colin was there filming the movie Triage.
