Old friend had a baby... maybe.

I recently did a Google search for an old college friend of mine that I haven't seen since his wedding a couple of years ago. I found a link to a baby registry with his and his wife's name on it, and the due date was listed as a week ago.
I really want to call him up and congratulate him, but there's something a little weird about it: The registry has a ton of stuff on it, but almost nothing has been purchased: Just a few stuffed animals. This makes me worry that maybe they lost the baby and they just never took down the registry.

In addition to the unused registry, I know that his wife's mother had a history of miscarriages. I don't know if it was something genetic.
I really want to get in touch and talk, whether it is with congratulations or condolences. I just feel like if I called he would know right away why I was calling out of the blue, and if something bad did happen it wouldn't be appropriate to say I found out about it on Google.
Am I over-thinking this? I feel like I'm over-thinking this.
What's the best way to make contact again without seeming too nosey about something he may not want to talk about?
