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.

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, 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!
