Hayden PanettiereIn other pregnancy news, “Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere joins the latest round of celebs to welcome a baby. Panettiere gave birth last Tuesday to her daughter, named Kaya Evdokia, confirms People. (Find out more about the baby name!)

This is the first child for Panettiere and her fiancé, professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko. The couple never officially announced their pregnancy, but the actress did accidentally reveal the gender of her baby to E! News in August.

In a May 2013 issue of Glamour, before her pregnancy and engagement, Panettiere shared her thoughts on being a mother, ”Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.”

Congratulations to the first-time parents!

Kourtney Kardashian’s Third Baby Has Arrived!

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Kourtney KardashianLooks like North West now has a new cousin! Kourtney Kardashian gave birth yesterday to her third child, confirms People. This is the second son and the third child for Kardashian and her long-term partner, Scott Disick.

The eldest Kardashian sister (and baby clothes designer) also gave birth on the same day as her first son’s birthday. The big brother, Mason Dash, turned 5, and received a little brother as a birthday (and early Christmas!) gift. Penelope Scotland, 2, completes the trio.

No name has been released yet, but Kourtney admitted to E! News in October that she and Disick were having difficulty thinking of a name and were waiting for their child’s birth to decide. Kourtney revealed her baby’s gender earlier this month on an episode of “Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons,” and she talks about her favorite family holiday traditions in the current December/January issue of FitPregnancy.

There’s no doubt Kourtney is an amazing mom and will continue being one. On Mason’s birthday, she shared a photo of him on her social pages, along with the sweet message, “Happy birthday to the coolest little boy in the entire world. You teach me so much every single day and changed my universe the second I met you. You have taught me what life is all about and I am truly blessed and honored to be your mommy.”

In a 2012 interview with Parents.com, Kardashian shared that being a mom was her “favorite role in life. It has changed me and made me realize there is nothing else I would rather do with my time. Being a mom is what life is about. I hope people realize what the priorities in life should be and know not everything has to be perfect.”

Congratulations to Kourtney and Scott!

Chris Pratt’s Amazing Speech About His Son Makes Us Love Him Even More

Monday, December 8th, 2014

(left to right) Anna Faris, Jack Pratt, Chris PrattIf you didn’t already love Chris Pratt after his role in Guardians of the Galaxy, here’s a new reason to love him. At a March of Dimes event last Friday, Pratt gave a sweet and touching speech about being a father to his son, Jack, who was born premature in 2012, as reported first by Variety.

Pratt shared that when he held his baby skin-to-skin in the NICU, “It was just the best feeling I’ve ever had. My little boy just laying across my neck and my chest, and feeling my heart beat and feeling the love. I played him country music and I sang to him, and I made promises in that moment about what kind of dad I wanted to be, and I just prayed that he’d live long enough that I could keep them,” reports People.

At birth, Jack weighed only 3 pounds, 12 ounces and spent a month in the NICU before going home, at 5 pounds, with Pratt and his wife, “Mom” actress Anna Faris. Once the baby was home, the couple faced a new challenge, when Faris had difficulty producing breast milk. But the breastfeeding challenges didn’t faze them. Speaking with admiration about his wife, Pratt said, “She didn’t stop trying. It was very painful, but…she stuck to it [with] this type of strong, superhuman focus that only mothers have, and finally it worked…We needed that win.”

Now two years later, Pratt sees how Jack has gone “from a small, helpless little squirt to a strong, smart, happy, funny, beautiful boy.”

And despite being a successful actor with roles in “Parks and Recreation” and “The Lego Movie,” Pratt cherishes his role as a father first. “I’ve done all kinds of cool things as an actor: I’ve jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium, but none of it means anything compared to being somebody’s daddy,” he shared.

A collective sigh was heard around the world!

This is the first boy for the couple, who also have two daughters (Frances Pen, 7, and Molly June, 4) together. No name has been announced yet.

The couple didn’t confirm Peet’s pregnancy until this past August, when she appeared at the Emmys with a baby bump. Peet recently had roles in “The Good Wife” and “Identity Thief,” while Benioff is the co-creator of “Game of Thrones.”

Peet is also an Every Child By Two ambassador for the Shot@Life campaign. As a mother, she is passionate about helping children around the world have access to vaccines.

In an essay for the Huffington Post last year, Peet wrote, “When it came time for me to decide whether or not to vaccinate my own children, I thought about the responsibility that comes with being a mother. For me, this responsibility of motherhood transcends borders and cultures.”
