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.

Nick and Vanessa Lachey’s Second Baby Is Here!

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Parents magazine June 2014 cover Nick Vanessa Camden LacheyA new January baby has arrived! Nick and Vanessa Lachey welcomed their second child together yesterday, reports People. The couple also have a 2-year-old son, Camden.

Vanessa shared a baby birth announcement on her website, and on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, which revealed her baby’s full name. A sweet black-and-white photo also accompanied her message:

She’s HERE!!!! Nick, Camden and I are SO excited to announce the birth of our sweet, beautiful baby girl, Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey! She was born January 5th, 2015 at 5:17pm. She weighed in at 7 pounds 15 ounces, is 21 inches long and has already won over all of our hearts.

I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl. A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it’s the day I would meet my best friend. I can’t even begin to tell you how it felt to hold her in my arms for the very first time. Mommy, Daddy and big brother Cam love you so much already, Brooklyn!

Thank you to everyone for your love and support, it means so much to our family.

Xx,
The Lacheys

The Lacheys were the cover stars of our June 2014 magazine. In the Parents interview, they revealed their eagerness to have another child.

“We definitely want more kids,” they say in unison. Nick and his younger brother, 98 Degrees bandmate Drew, are two and a half years apart, which Nick thinks is perfect. “You don’t want kids to have to share the same group of friends,” he says. Counters Vanessa, “But you don’t want them so far apart that they have nothing in common.”

Nick nods in agreement. “Yes, they have to be close enough in age so they can still relate to each other,” he says.

The couple got their wish — a month after the interview, they shared a pregnancy announcement on their third wedding anniversary.

Congratulations to the Lachey family!

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Welcome Their Baby!

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Blake Lively Ryan ReynoldsUpdate (1/7/15): Sources claim the couple welcomed a baby girl, though no official confirmation has still been released.

Another beautiful baby has arrived in time to celebrate the new year! Both People and Page Six report that Lively and Reynolds already welcomed their first child together. Page Six shares that the baby arrived early in December, with Lively giving birth near the couple’s Bedford, NY home. No official confirmations or details have been announced yet by the couple, including the baby’s gender and name.

In October, Lively announced her pregnancy on her lifestyle site, Preserve, with a beautiful baby bump photo. Both Lively and Reynolds have not been shy about sharing their desire for raising a group of kids. In the August 2013 issue of Details, Reynolds revealed he would love to have sons and daughters in a big brood, saying “We’d love to have a big family. We both come from big families … We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think. In the September 2014 issue of Marie Clarie, Lively echoed, “I gotta get started. If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.”

We can’t wait to see the baby birth announcement/photos Lively will share on Preserve (or on Instagram and Twitter) — which will probably be as golden and gorgeous as her baby bump photo!

Now that the first famous baby we’ve been anticipating has arrived, we can’t wait to meet these other three famous babies this year!

Congratulations to the first-time couple!

Zoe Saldana and Marco PeregoZoe Saldana and her husband, Marco Perego, have welcomed two bundles of joy, reports People. Saldana gave birth to twin boys named Cy and Bowie. No details have been shared of when Saldana gave birth, but speculations say the twins might have arrived in mid-December.

The actress shared her sweet baby birth announcement earlier today on Twitter and Instagram, along with photos of two bottles and two pacifiers.

The private actress didn’t confirm her pregnancy officially, preferring to remain mum and let her growing belly do the talking. But she did allude to her pregnancy in early August when she filmed an ALS ice bucket challenge video, and she hinted at having twins in early October, when she talked about dressing for three at a red carpet event.

Congratulations to the first-time parents! (And check out four more famous babies we can’t wait to meet in 2015 and other celebrity baby births of 2014!)
