Here’s How Far Blake Lively Went to Hide Her Baby News

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Blake Lively and Amber TamblynWe all know that some celebrities (like Kristen Bell and Eva Mendes) are notoriously private about their births and their babies. But turns out that Blake Lively is also a super secret baby news keeper (in addition to being a super secret wedding news keeper).

Not only has she kept mum about her baby’s gender (though sources report its most likely a girl) and baby’s name, she also kept her birth a secret from close friends, including Amber Tamblyn

Tamblyn, one of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars Lively stayed in touch with, didn’t know that Lively had given birth – until after meeting the baby in a surprising way. The “Two-and-a-Half Men” actress recently shared with People, ”She tricked me! She was texting me about wallpaper, she was like, ‘You gotta come see my new wallpaper,’ and I went up there, and there was her baby.”

Tamblyn laughed that everyone knew except for her but holds no grudges. She’s now an auntie and godmother to the baby, and did her duty by gushing appropriately — while still keeping details about the baby under wraps.

Why Kourtney Kardashian Eats Her Placenta, Too!

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Looks like Kourtney Kardashian and Gaby Hoffman have something in common!

The eldest Kardashian sister recently took to Instagram (and Twitter) to share a photo of her placenta pills. She shared, “Yummy…PLACENTA pills! No joke…I will be sad when my placenta pills run out. They are life changing! #benefits #lookitup”

This isn’t the first time the topic of placenta has come up in the Kardashian family. In a 2013 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kourtney hired a chef to prank her family into eating placenta and revealed on camera, “I want to have a third child just to eat the placenta.” (Looks like she got her wish after giving birth to Reign Aston Disick!) In the same ep, Kim also ponders the benefits of eating placenta pills, but there’s no confirmation that she did so after giving birth to North.
