Which One of George Clooney’s Ex-Girlfriends Just Announced Her Birth?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Stacy KeiblerStacy Keibler and her husband, tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre, welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday! Keibler waited to announce the news on her website today, and revealed their daughter’s name as Ava Grace.

The actress (who has appeared on How I Met Your Mother, Chuck, and Psych) is also a former wrestler and Dancing With the Stars contestant. She revealed her pregnancy after marrying Pobre this past March in Mexico. Previously, she Keibler dated George Clooney for two years.

In an interview with Fit Pregnancy, Keibler revealed that she was having a calm pregnancy, and that her perspective on motherhood changed after meeting and marrying Probre.

No photos of the newborn have been shared yet, but Keibler wrote on her site, “We’ve never experienced a level of joy and happiness like this before! Thank you so much for all of the special wishes and positive energy.”

Pete Wentz Is a Dad Again!

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

pete-wentz-saint-lazsloIt’s a boy for Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and model girlfriend Meagan Camper!

The couple welcomed Saint Lazslo (the baby, of course, not the actual saint) on August 20 in Los Angeles, and both baby and mom are happy and healthy, a rep told People.com. This is the first child for the couple; Wentz has a 5 1/2-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli, with former wife Ashlee Simpson.

Wentz joins two other Hollywood dads who announced births this week. Carson Daly welcomed daughter London Rose and Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl welcomed daughter Ophelia Saint. (So maybe Saint is a rock and roll thing?)

Wentz and Camper reportedly waited until the birth to find out the baby’s gender, though I’m guessing they cooked up the quirky name well beforehand. They’ve made no secret about wanting to start a family together, and it sounds like they’re more than prepared for their newest addition. “What’s more exciting than having the pitter-patter of another little gremlin running around?” Wentz said earlier this summer. “Now it will be two-on-two.”

Congratulations to the new family!

Christian Bale Is Now Proud Papa to a Second Child

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Christian Bale and Sibi BlazicHoly Batman! Christian Bale has welcomed a son into the family, reports People. Best known for his portrayal as the Dark Knight in director Chris Nolan’s trilogy, Bale also has a 9-year-old daughter with his wife, Sibi Blazic.

The notoriously private actor never announced his wife’s pregnancy; instead, she was spotted with a baby bump earlier this year at the Academy Awards. Bale was nominated in the Best Actor category for American Hustle, a film directed by David O. Russell, who also directed The Fighter, for which Bale won the Best Supporting Actor Award in 2010.

Bale is so private that he has also never announced or confirmed his daughter’s name — though she’s often referred to as Emmeline — so it won’t be a surprise if he never announces a name for his son. However, the actor is a devoted family man — in a 2010 interview with Esquire, Bale revealed, “Look, I’ve got incredible pride for my family. I’ve absolutely fallen into that cliché of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly.”

Congratulations to the second-time dad!

7 Reasons Kate and William Are Just Like Every Other Parent

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Wililam Kate George butterfly exhibit Prince George first birthdayA year ago today, the world went totally bananas over news of Prince George’s birth. (Well, okay, the world plus Kate and William.) And over the course of the next 364 days, we’ve inhaled every little tidbit about his life. He loves butterflies and bilbies! He has Spiderman pajamas! He’s maybe-kind-of walking! We’ve oohed over his exotic vacation to Australia and New Zealand and aahed over his two nurseries and perfect private garden. In short, we can’t get enough of him.

But we’ve also been keeping tabs on his parents, watching how this next chapter of their real-life fairytale unfolds and seeing how they’re holding up now that baby makes three. And honestly, I’ve got to hand it to the first-time parents: despite all the pomp and circumstance surrounding them, William and Kate seem refreshingly normal. Consider the evidence:

They (or, rather, Kate!) struggled with breastfeeding. Though St. James’ Palace has declined to comment, breastfeeding didn’t come easy at first for Kate, and it was widely reported that the new mom breastfed her son. Like many of us, she required a little help from the pros in the beginning. Still, she acknowledged that the decision to nurse is a personal one. A source told the DailyMirror: “She feels that it is a matter of personal choice, and that new mums should do whatever feels right for them and their baby.”

They’re affectionate. There’s no shortage of photos of Kate holding onto George; he’s practically her shadow. (My faves? Here, here, and here.) And William is just as loving. During a visit to an England homeless shelter, he recounted how he spent the morning cuddling with his then-four-month-old. “He was saying he had been holding him and his baby had been smiling into the mirror,” a resident told People. Then there’s this awww-worthy photo of William tenderly kissing the top of George’s head.

They too were once knee-deep in drool. During their trip abroad, photogs captured Kate in a so-called “gross mom moment.” The family was at Australia’s Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, and George, who was teething at the time, had some drool on his chin. The dutiful mom did what any of us would do: she swiped away the saliva with her hands and dried them on her dress. The wipe-off may have inflamed the haters (and left a mark on Kate’s designer dress), but it scored major points with sympathetic moms worldwide.

They get down on the ground during a playgroup. While on their tour Down Under, the family went to a get-together at New Zealand’s Government House. It was Prince George’s first public engagement, and the tot was a big hit — as were his parents. The future queen was photographed on her knees with the babies, in her beautiful dress, showing her son how to play with some of the toys. Ah-mazing.

They host playdates. When the queen is away, George will play — and invite some friends over, too. Kate reportedly hosts playdates at the royal residence (with the queen’s blessing, of course), including one with George’s godmother, Emilia Jardine Paterson, and her toddler.

They let George be a kid. Yes, he has a lot of first names. Yes, the Queen of England is expected to attend his birthday party. But at the end of the day, George is a one-year-old boy, full of energy and curiosity and a zest for life. And his parents seem to respect that and allow for it. William, for example, recently revealed that the birthday boy is “charging around and opening doors” at the family’s apartment in Kensington Palace. “I think George will be running faster than me very soon,” he joked.

They’re hands-on. Sure, they have enough money to hire a fleet of fancy nannies to care for their son, but Kate and William seem determined to bring up their baby on their own. Even if that means enduring lots of sleepless nights and poop diapers. A source told Us Weekly: “Kate doesn’t want George to be more used to the sight of the help than to his own parents.” For his part, William has taken a job as an air ambulance helicopter pilot just so he can be closer to his family.

Happy first birthday, Prince George! (And don’t forget to join in our #GeorgeTurns1 royal birthday bash.)

Keep up the great work, Kate and William!

Jason Biggs Did WHAT With His Wife’s Breast Milk?

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

jason-biggs-jenny-mollenNotorious oversharer Jason Biggs has spilled yet another can of beans about his personal life, this time revealing on Conan that he once sampled his wife’s breast milk.

“I just wanted to see what the fuss is about. My kid loves it,” Biggs explained to the comedian on Monday, according to People. “I have a right to it as well, don’t I?”

Well, no, actually. You don’t. That’s for your adorable son, Sid. But I’m not surprised curiosity got the better of the new dad. After all, when you’re breastfeeding, it seems like your whole life revolves around the milk you’re producing: Has it come in and do you have a good supply? Is baby latching on and taking in enough during feedings? Is it leaking all over your shirt? Again? So it only makes sense that your partner would be just a little interested in what’s coming out up there. (Even Kim Kardashian couldn’t resist taking a sip of sister Kourtney’s breast milk.)

The Orange Is The New Black star has been called out on his, um, transparency in the past. And sure, some of the stuff he and wife Jenny Mollen have revealed does feel a little like TMI (see: the time Mollen hired a prostitute for Biggs’ birthday). But in this case, he sounds exactly like what he is: a normal, first-time dad.
