Scarlett Johansson’s Baby Girl Has Arrived!

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Scarlett JohanssonScarlett Johansson welcomed her daughter today! She was born in New York City. This is Johannsson’s first child with fiancé and French journalist, Romain Duriac.

People magazine confirmed that the baby’s full name is Rose Dorothy. (Her name seems fitting since it works in English and French! Plus, Johansson is currently living in Paris, where Edith Piaf’s song, “La Vie en Rose” is legendary.) Get the full scoop on Scarlett’s choice of baby name at our baby name blog, In Name Only.

The hardworking and prolific actress didn’t announce her pregnancy until March, right after announcing her engagement to Duriac. At the time, Johansson shared her views on being a working mother with The Wall Street Journal magazine, “There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater. I want to be able to have it all.”

But she also noted, “I know that with that there will be some sacrifices…I know that’s the struggle with working mothers and successful careers. It happens.”

Many happy blessings to the new parents! (Bonus: Johansson shares the baby birthing spotlight with Alyssa Milano.)

Alyssa Milano Gives Birth to a Baby Girl!

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Alyssa MilanoThe “Who’s the Boss?” and “Charmed” actress welcomed a daughter today named Elizabella Dylan, confirms People! This is the second child for Milano and her husband, Hollywood agent David Bugliari. The couple wed in 2009 and welcomed their first child, son Milo Thomas, in 2011.

Milano is currently one of the stars of “Mistresses,” and she filmed a gender-reveal video while on the TV set in May. In the August/September issue of Fit Pregnancy, Milano also explained how she knew she was having a girl because of what she actually experienced during the second pregnancy. She also shared why it was worth the wait to give birth later in life (she gave birth to Milo in her late 30s and to Elizabeth at age 41): “I loved waiting a long time to be a mom… When Milo finally came, I thought —  This is what I’ve waited for my entire life.

Speaking to American Baby magazine, Milano once shared what it was like to become a mom: “The first few weeks of being a mom were profound, not just emotionally but also, physically. All the changes you instinctually go through are miraculous. Everything is so new and scary. I ran the gamut of emotions.”

We’re sure Milano and Bugliari are experiencing tremendous joy. Congratulations to the couple on their second bundle of joy!

Designer Bags? $100 Bills? That’s Just How These Celeb Babies Roll

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

alena-jonasIs my kid spoiled?

That was the thought running through my mind the other day. We had just left Walgreens, where he sweet-talked me into buying him a set of washable paints, a sheet of stickers, and yet another toy car. A few days earlier, my mother gifted him with a bag full of goodies before she flew back home, and before all of that, we spent a weekend hitting up every kid-friendly attraction in Boston (and trust me, there are A LOT of them). Even though my husband and I swore early on that our only child wouldn’t be swimming in stuff, here we are, three years later, with drawers chock-full of drugstore cars.

I was feeling pretty bad about my parenting skills until I read about how some children of Hollywood elite are living large, and suddenly, my kiddo’s $3 Corvette didn’t seem so bad. First up is North West, who gets my vote as the ultimate Material Girl. There was the designer dress she wore to her parents’ lavish wedding, then the enormous diamond studs she sported on her first birthday. Now, the celebutot has moved onto handbags — you know, for all the pacis and toys she’s no doubt carrying around with her. But forget Coach — for North, only the best will do, and in this case, that means Yves Saint Laurent. The 14-month-old was photographed on mom’s hip wearing a studded YSL purse that costs as much as a mortgage payment.

But Kimye’s kid isn’t the only rich baby flaunting her wealth. Kevin Jonas’ daughter, Alena, is also clearly rolling in the dough. Uncle Joe recently posted a picture of the 7-month-old waving a $100 bill in the air, E! Online reports. The caption? ”My niece Alena has expensive taste.” The proud uncle also created a video of it and set the whole thing to Jay Z’s “100$ Bill.” Judging by the huge smile on Alena’s face, this is probably not the first time she’s made it rain, and I have a feeling it won’t be the last.

Why Are These Two Babies Making News?

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Every mom is convinced her baby is head and shoulders above the rest, but some may just have legit bragging rights on the playground.

Consider British mother Onyi Chiedozie, whose infant daughter Amara is already making international headlines after figuring out how to hold a bottle to her mouth and feed herself — at the ripe age of three days old! Now three weeks old, the pint-sized phenom can even push away the bottle when she’s done with it. (For the record, the average baby doesn’t master that whole grabbing thing until the six-month mark.) Onyi is so blown away by her daughter’s feats that she’s been documenting them every day. And while some moms (okay, me) would have taken the accomplishment as a sign of their baby’s natural genius, Chiedozie is much more pragmatic. “I just think she has a lot of strength,” she told the Daily Mail. “I’m not sure why, though, as she wasn’t particularly heavy when she was born.” (Amara weighed a 6 lbs. 3 oz. at birth.)

On the other side of the pond, another kiddo is making news — but not for her physical prowess. Drew Barrymore’s daughter, Olive, isn’t two years old yet but she is already showing signs of becoming a serious bibliophile. According to celebritybabyscoop, the proud mom posted an adorable Instagram photo of Olive curled up on a beach chair poring over Tina Fey’s memoir, Bossypants. “One of my favorite girls reading one of my favorite books written by one of my favorite women! #tinafeyrules #summerreading,” Barrymore wrote in the caption. And sure, while the chances that Olive can actually read and comprehend the book are pretty slim, the budding bookworm does appear to be taken with the words on the page. Which makes sense, since reading time is a big deal in Barrymore’s house. “I read Olive a lot of books,” the mom of two told Us Weekly last year. “She loves books! That’s her favorite thing in the world — books.”

Now it’s your turn to brag — what’s your baby doing lately that amazes you?
