Christian Bale Is Now Proud Papa to a Second Child

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Christian Bale and Sibi BlazicHoly Batman! Christian Bale has welcomed a son into the family, reports People. Best known for his portrayal as the Dark Knight in director Chris Nolan’s trilogy, Bale also has a 9-year-old daughter with his wife, Sibi Blazic.

The notoriously private actor never announced his wife’s pregnancy; instead, she was spotted with a baby bump earlier this year at the Academy Awards. Bale was nominated in the Best Actor category for American Hustle, a film directed by David O. Russell, who also directed The Fighter, for which Bale won the Best Supporting Actor Award in 2010.

Bale is so private that he has also never announced or confirmed his daughter’s name — though she’s often referred to as Emmeline — so it won’t be a surprise if he never announces a name for his son. However, the actor is a devoted family man — in a 2010 interview with Esquire, Bale revealed, “Look, I’ve got incredible pride for my family. I’ve absolutely fallen into that cliché of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly.”

Congratulations to the second-time dad!

Which Pop Star Gave Birth This Weekend?

Monday, August 18th, 2014

christina-aguilera-baby-girlChristina Aguilera has a new reason to sing: Her baby girl was born Saturday in Los Angeles, according to People.com. “So proud to welcome our beautiful daughter Summer Rain Rutler into the world,” the Grammy award-winning singer tweeted earlier.

This is the first child for Aguilera and fiancé Matt Rutler; she has a 6-year-old son, Max Liron, from her previous marriage to Jordan Bratman.

Summer Rain’s arrival is a high point in what has already been an exciting year for The Voice coach. On Valentine’s Day, she and Rutler announced their engagement. A week later, Aguilera shared news of her pregnancy, and in March she revealed she was having a girl. By all accounts, pregnancy clearly agrees with the pop star. She has described it as “very easy and enjoyable” and seems to have no qualms about the physical changes pregnancy brings (see: her nude photo in V magazine and the recently released photo of the star putting headphones over her bump, right).

Congratulations to the happy family!

It’s a Boy for Christina Ricci!

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Christina Ricci Television Academy Honors 2011Actress Christina Ricci has given birth to a baby boy, confirms US Weekly. This is the first child for her and husband James Heerdegen, a camera technician she met on set of the TV series Pan Am. They got married in October 2013 in New York City. Ricci didn’t confirm her pregnancy until late May, when she was spotted with a baby bump at LAX.

Best known for her film roles (especially as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family), Ricci has also appeared on stage as Hermia in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream.

No official baby name, photos, or statements have been announced or revealed by her reps yet, but we wish the best for the new parents as they soak in every moment of this amazing time with a newborn baby!

Would You Pay $7,500 for a Crib?!

Friday, August 1st, 2014

contour-cribHoly Blue Ivy! Nursery Works, the high-end crib company that counts Bey and Jay Z as clients, just unveiled a few new cribs that make your Jenny Lind look as stylish as a dog bed. While they won’t change dirty diapers or put your baby back to sleep at 2 a.m., these luxe nests will make your nursery look like something straight out of Architectural Digest.

The one I’m only-in-my-wildest-dreams swooning over? The uber cool Contour (pictured). At a whopping $7,500, it’s the most expensive of the new models, and easily the most space-age looking, reports the New York Times. (Maybe it’s the asymmetrical wooden slats, which are made of organic “3D skin” and designed to look like a wave?) And you get some bang for your buck here (as you should, for this price!) — the crib changes into a bassinet should you want to baby to catnap in something fancier than a co-sleeper. (Let’s be honest, though: Lots of cribs, even inexpensive ones, can be converted for other uses, like a toddler bed.)

The other two cribs are pretty sweet, too, and start at a still-way-out-of-my-budget $3,900. This is as much as a semester of my college tuition! Even so, they’re way cheaper than Dodo Bassinet’s solid gold cot, which will set you back a staggering $16.3 million.

Feeling flush? The new Nursery Works cribs are available for pre-order now and are scheduled to ship out later this month. Tell us: What’s the most you’d spend on your baby’s crib?

Need help getting your registry in order? Visit our handy Nursery Planner to create the perfect room for your baby (even if you decide not to spring for the fancy crib!). And be sure to like All About Babies on Facebook to keep up with all the latest baby news!

Get a Sneak Peek at JWoww’s Baby Girl!

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

First, Jimmy Kimmel shared his baby girl’s pictures with the world. And now Jersey Shore alum JWoww reveals the first photos of her newborn daughter.

According to the Daily Mail, the new mom told the magazine that even though she’s sleep deprived, she’s never been more content. And honestly, it shows. Just look at the smile on her and fiance Roger Mathew’s faces. Though she described the July 13 delivery as “way more painful” than she thought, the new mom (real name, Jenni Farley) said she still wants more kids but admitted that it might take some convincing before Roger is on board. In the meantime, it sounds like the new parents will be plenty busy raising their little girl and preparing for their wedding.
