It’s a Boy for Christina Ricci!

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Christina Ricci Television Academy Honors 2011Actress Christina Ricci has given birth to a baby boy, confirms US Weekly. This is the first child for her and husband James Heerdegen, a camera technician she met on set of the TV series Pan Am. They got married in October 2013 in New York City. Ricci didn’t confirm her pregnancy until late May, when she was spotted with a baby bump at LAX.

Best known for her film roles (especially as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family), Ricci has also appeared on stage as Hermia in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream.

No official baby name, photos, or statements have been announced or revealed by her reps yet, but we wish the best for the new parents as they soak in every moment of this amazing time with a newborn baby!

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 Births: Ciara and Future Have a Son!

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

It’s a boy for singer Ciara and her fiancé, rapper-producer Future, according to news reports from US magazine. The singer gave birth to the baby boy yesterday morning, and no name has yet been announced (though I’m guessing it will fall more along the lines of the unique celebrity baby names, rather than John or Jacob).

This is Ciara’s first child—Future already has two sons and a daughter from previous relationships. (The youngest son is named Prince.)

Congrats to the couple! And keep watch on In Name Only for the baby name news and analysis, when it’s finally announced!

Tell me: What do you think Ciara and Future will name their son?

It’s a Girl for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett!

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Reality star and former Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson just welcomed a daughter with husband, former NFL player Hank Baskett. The new little girl (no name announced yet!) will join Hank IV, the couple’s son.

While some parents may think pink and princessy for their daughters, Kendra definitely isn’t planning to go that route. “People keep asking me if I’m excited to have a ‘princess’ and I usually respond with, ‘I’d rather have my girl be a superhero than a princess,’ Kendra wrote on her pregnancy blog on People.com. “I believe making her think she is a princess is unrealistic and sets up a fantasy world.”

Congrats to the happy family! And be sure to keep watching our baby naming blog, In Name Only, to get the full baby name analysis when it’s finally announced.

Tell us: Did you go all pink and girly with your daughter?
