Check Out These Pics of Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett’s New Baby

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson finally shared a few cute pictures of their daughter, Alijah! The first, via Instagram, is this adorable shot of everybody’s hands piled up—including big brother Hank IV and, of course, newborn Alijah. But Us Magazine scored the exclusive shots of the faces of the happy family, which you can check out on their website.

Obviously, celebrities have a whole different way of sharing shots of their newborns—no letterpressed announcements or adorable Facebook shots for them! It’s a pretty lucrative business for celebrity parents to release the first photos of their babies exclusively to magazines like People and Us. (The Jolie-Pitts scored the highest fee ever, raking in $15 million for releasing the images of the couple with their twins Knox and Vivienne. Though don’t worry that they were being greedy—they announced that they donated their fee to charities.) In fact, most of the most expensive celebrity photos out there were baby photos.

Personally, I kinda like the adorable Instagram shots that more down-to-earth stars like John Krasinski and Emily Blunt shared. (And Kendra’s cute Instagram shot we have here!)

Tell us: How did you share the first photos of your baby? Did you go with old-school mailed announcements, or Facebook or Instagram? And if you were a celeb, would you consider sharing the first photos of your baby to help you start a really nice college fund for them?

Celebrity Dads Support Breastfeeding: Does Your Mate?

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

We loved Bruce Willis’ cheeky Instagram photo of his wife, Emma Heming-Willis, breastfeeding their brand new daughter, Evelyn. (He captioned it, “Breakfast of Champions!”)

But Bruce Willis isn’t the only A-list dad who cheered on his mate’s efforts to breastfeed their baby. Brad Pitt snapped a famous shot of Angelina Jolie nursing one of their twins—it ended up on the cover of W magazine. When Victoria Beckham slipped a disc in her back soon after she gave birth to baby Harper, David Beckham held the baby during their breastfeeding sessions so it wouldn’t hurt her. And Will Ferrell toted his wife’s breast pump on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, and made sure to call attention to his wife’s apparatus.

It’s great that so many new dads support their partners’ efforts to breastfeed—a 2013 CDC report confirms that new moms who have the support of their mate are often able to breastfeed more successfully than those whose partners don’t bolster their efforts.

So how can dads help? By taking on some of the other duties (diaper changing and dishes spring to mind), heaping on the praise for your efforts (hey, breastfeeding can be a very big challenge!), bringing over a snack or water while you’re on duty, and of course, a back rub won’t hurt!

Tell us: Was your mate supportive of your breastfeeding efforts? How’d he help you out?
