Model With Pregnancy Abs Gives Birth

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Update (4/17/15): This post was updated with new info and photos of Sarah Stage’s baby.

If you’re not familiar with the name Sarah Stage, you might know her better as the six-pack abs mom who Instagrammed her way through pregnancy.

After sparking some controversy by documenting her impossibly-taut pregnant belly — which caused a mix of body shaming and body envy — the model gave birth on Tuesday to a baby boy named James Hunter. The baby boy weighed 8 lbs., 7 ounces, and was 22 inches long.

Speaking to E!, Stage shared excitement for her newborn: “[H]e’s a big healthy boy and he got an APGAR score of 8-9. Thank you for supporting me throughout my pregnancy!”

Stage later shared two adorable photos of her son below, along with the captions: “Thank you for the positive support throughout my journey… It’s just beginning!!!” and “Love at first sight.”

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s Baby Has Arrived!

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Jessica Biel and Justin TimberlakeWe speculated on Jessica Biel’s growing baby bump for months until she could no longer hide the fact: she was expecting a baby with Justin Timberlake!

Now, the much-anticipated #babyoftheyear has arrived, and it’s a BOY! Biel has given birth to the couple’s first child, son Silas Randall.

No other details have been made available, but the couple’s reps exclusively told People that “mom and baby are doing well and dad is ‘ecstatic’.”

While the super-private couple never officially announced the pregnancy, JT confirmed the news when he posted a sweet baby announcement on his birthday. “This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets,” the singer shared on Instagram.

During her pregnancy, Biel was spotted out and about in L.A., keeping healthy and fit with prenatal yoga. She was also busy planning for the opening of her organic kids-themed restaurant, Au Fudge, which will serve rainbow-colored items on the menu.

We are beyond excited for these two first-time parents, who we know will make an amazing mom and dad.

Congratulations to JT and Jessica!

Rachael Leigh Cook Gives Birth to a Second Baby

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

To cap off a recent flurry of news related to She’s All That and Freddie Prinze, Jr., actress Rachael Leigh Cook gave birth to her second child, a son, this past Saturday. The actress waited a few days before sharing a baby announcement on Twitter:

Welcome to the party, Little Buddy. We love you so much. http://t.co/tvIBcGpnkJ

— Rachael Leigh Cook (@RachaelLCook) April 8, 2015

Cook and her husband, actor Daniel Gillies, who currently stars on the CW show The Originals, named their son Theodore Vigo Sullivan Gillies. Baby Theodore almost rivals the Duggar Dillard baby in weight and length, at 8 lbs., 14 ounces, and 20.5 inches. The couple also have a daughter, Charlotte Easton, who was born in 2013.

The second-time mom and dad didn’t reveal their pregnancy news until late January. In a statement, the couple shared, “We’re as happy as we were surprised by this wonderful news! We haven’t slept since 2013 and welcome advice from all parents who survived Two Under Two.”

In an interview with Wetpaint.com last year, Cook also talked about balancing work and motherhood: “I’m certainly loving my time with [Charlotte]. I don’t think I’ll ever completely put work aside, but that’s just part of who I am. I think that loving what you do and having your child see that is a good example to set. That’s the plan, and I’m sticking with it.”

Jill Duggar Dillard’s Baby Boy Is Finally Here!

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Israel David - Jill Duggar Dillard and Derick Dillard baby

After what felt like an epic pregnancy (with two due dates coming and going and one rumored labor speculation), #babydilly has been born!

Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband, Derick, welcomed their baby boy last night and named him Israel David. Their baby weighed a whopping 9 lbs., 10 oz ., and 23 inches. The new parents shared an exclusive first photo with People magazine and posted two more photos later on Jill’s Instagram, along with the announcements:

Israel David Dillard, born last night at 11:49 pm!

So thankful to God for this handsome little guy!
9lbs 10oz, 23 inches long! #IsraelDavidDillard #babydilly

The proud grandparents Bob and Michelle revealed more photos on the official Duggar Family Facebook page. From the looks of it, Jill may not have had the home birth she hoped for, but the birth experience will air on the May 5th episode of 19 Kids and Counting.

This is the first child for the couple, who met in 2013 (when Jill’s dad introduced them) and got married in 2014. Jill is the fourth oldest child in the Duggar family, and her child is also the fourth grandchild to join the family. (Older brother Josh has three kids.)

The couple first announced their pregnancy news in August, and they revealed the baby’s gender in October. They even posted another clever pregnancy announcement that shared the spotlight with sister Jessa’s marriage to Ben Seewald. Since the announcement, both Derick and Jill kept track of her growing baby bump and posting pregnancy updates. And even after her due date came and went, the couple stayed busy by volunteering at their church’s thrift shop.

Speaking to US Weekly after announcing their pregnancy, Jill shared, ”We were super excited. We prayed together, and thanked God for this new little life. I was screaming and everything.”

Jill, who has been training to be a midwife, has even helped deliver 30 babies and will take her midwife exam later this year. No doubt Jill also has experience caring for babies, so she’ll have no problem raising hers — plus, she’ll have plenty of family babysitters as well!

Congratulations to the first-time parents!

Carrie Underwood’s Cute Baby — and More Adorable Celeb Baby Reveals!

Monday, March 30th, 2015

We can’t get enough of Carrie Underwood’s baby reveal — those chubby cheeks! the downy hair! the cute-as-a-button nose! Every baby is cute, and who doesn’t love an awww-worthy photo of a baby (sleeping or not) posed against a soft blanket?

But what makes every first look extra special, especially this one, are the fun touches that make the photos more personal. In Underwood’s case, she posed Isaiah Michael, born earlier this month, holding a mini ice hockey stick emblazoned with his dad’s ice hockey team, The Predators. The photo not only shows off how cute Isaiah is, but also celebrates the team’s great news, which Underwood shares in the caption: “The Predators are in the playoffs! Just waiting to get called up! #PutMeInCoach”

Seeing Underwood’s baby reveal reminded us of more adorable first looks that other celebrities have recently shared on Instagram. Check out the ones below!

Model Coco Rocha recently gave birth and has already shared quite a few sweet photos of her baby girl, Ioni James. But who doesn’t love this one of Ioni with her eyes wide open, looking up in wonder?

Shakira shared a peek of baby Sasha recently, too, with a photo that compared him with her soccer player-boyfriend’s own baby photo. It’s not hard to see the family resemblance!

With an awesome name like Genesis Ali, who isn’t surprised that Alicia Keys’s baby has a strong presence? In the beautiful black-and-white family portrait below, everyone looks at the latest addition with adoration; he clearly steals the show!

See how other celebrities first shared their baby announcements!
