Sweet Breesus! Drew Brees Welcomes Baby #4

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

drew-brees-and-babyPull out the pink — it’s a girl for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees! The baby was born Monday night and weighed a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces. This is the first girl for Brees and his wife, Brittany. The couple also have three boys: Baylen, Bowen, and Callen.

Although the family is holding off on releasing the baby’s name until the birth certificate is inked, that doesn’t mean the proud dad is staying mum about his little girl. He tweeted the birth announcement and has already posted two photos, including a sweet selfie taken in the hospital (right). “It melted my heart to watch her being born last night,” Brees told reporters after practice on Tuesday. “I got to take the snap, so to speak, and catch her on the way out. That’s a memory I will have forever.” (Side note: Good thing he’s got good hands!)

Now with a much-anticipated little girl in the family, Brees said he and Brittany are probably done expanding their brood. According to NOLA.com, three boys and one girl were what the couple originally wanted.

Congratulations to the Brees family!

Pete Wentz Is a Dad Again!

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

pete-wentz-saint-lazsloIt’s a boy for Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and model girlfriend Meagan Camper!

The couple welcomed Saint Lazslo (the baby, of course, not the actual saint) on August 20 in Los Angeles, and both baby and mom are happy and healthy, a rep told People.com. This is the first child for the couple; Wentz has a 5 1/2-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli, with former wife Ashlee Simpson.

Wentz joins two other Hollywood dads who announced births this week. Carson Daly welcomed daughter London Rose and Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl welcomed daughter Ophelia Saint. (So maybe Saint is a rock and roll thing?)

Wentz and Camper reportedly waited until the birth to find out the baby’s gender, though I’m guessing they cooked up the quirky name well beforehand. They’ve made no secret about wanting to start a family together, and it sounds like they’re more than prepared for their newest addition. “What’s more exciting than having the pitter-patter of another little gremlin running around?” Wentz said earlier this summer. “Now it will be two-on-two.”

Congratulations to the new family!

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!

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.

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.

This Baby Looks Exactly Like Jay Z!

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Jay Z may have 99 problems, but finding his baby twin ain’t one.

Word of the rap mogul’s pint-sized doppelganger quickly spread after a Reddit user posted a photo of him with the caption, “My friend’s son looks like Jay Z.” Um, you think? This kid has Hova’s full lips, almond-shaped eyes, and even the half-scowl down pat. Just saying, he can give this other Jay Z lookalike from 1939 a run for his money.

Jay Z and Baby Lookalike

Of course, baby-celeb lookalikes are nothing new. Last year, Mommy Shorts rounded up 30 such twins, and though some were kind of a stretch, a few nailed it. (See: John Goodman and the Cabbage Patch Kid.) Still, I have yet to see one that’s as spot on as the Reddit baby, have you?
