Halle Berry and Jaime King Both Welcome New Babies

Monday, October 7th, 2013

This weekend was a busy one in the world of celebrity baby news. Both Halle Berry and Jaime King gave birth to baby boys.

X-Men star Halle Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez welcomed a baby boy on Saturday Oct. 5. This is the first baby for the happy couple, whom joins big sister, Nahla, Halle’s daughter from a previous marriage. During her pregnancy, Berry had a role in getting California to pass a law that protects the children of celebrities from paparazzi.

Hart of Dixie star Jaime King  gave birth to her baby boy Sunday Oct. 6. This is the first child for King and her husband Kyle Newman. King had fun sharing her pregnancy on social media this summer– you may remember her baby bump photos or her Star Wars-themed baby shower.

Did Beyoncé’s Delivery Disrupt Other Patients? Hospital Makes Official Statement

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

BeyonceBy now, you probably already know that Beyoncé gave birth to a baby girl, Blue Ivy, with husband Jay-Z this weekend. There have been numerous reports about the celebrity couple’s experience at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City and the hospital is being accused of providing the famous duo with special treatment at the expense of other patients. In an article in the New York Times, one father, Edgar Ramirez, says security guards for the star kept him from seeing his wife and newborn for three hours.

But Lenox Hill Hospital has released an official statement in response to the criticism:

“The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days. No security plan that we or the Carters’ security team put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and to date, no families have complained to the hospital about being denied access to the NICU.”

There has been a lot of media attention surrounding Beyoncé’s pregnancy (from us, too), but we sincerely hope other parents didn’t suffer because of the singer’s celebrity. Baby Blue may have already gotten her own blog post, but we believe all babies — famous parents or not — deserve the same, wonderful treatment.

Alicia Silverstone Welcomes Baby Boy, Bear Blu

Monday, May 9th, 2011

alicia silverstoneAlicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki welcomed a baby boy last Thursday, May 5, just in time for the first time mom to celebrate her first Mother’s Day.

Mom and Dad are completely in love with their beautiful baby boy, according to a statement from Silverstone’s rep. At birth he weighed in at 7 lbs., 15 oz.

The couple named their son Bear Blu, joining the ranks of celebrity parents opting for a super-unique baby name rather than a classic or popular one. Knowing that Silverstone is a major animal lover, PETA activist, and vegan, maybe an animal-themed baby name shouldn’t surprise us.

Emily Procter of ‘CSI: Miami’ on Being a New Mom

Monday, March 7th, 2011

emily-procter-paradeOn “CSI: Miami,” she totes a gun as Detective Calleigh Duquesne, but in real life actress Emily Procter is now toting something softer–a new baby girl, Philippa Frances. 

According to a new story on Parade.com, the new mother just gave birth at 42-years-old, after struggling for a long time with infertility.  Speaking openly, Procter shares she had IUI (intrauterine insemination) and IVF (in vitro fertilization) two times. She and her husband, music producer Paul Bryan, also considered adoption. 

As a child, Procter herself was adopted by a couple in North Carolina, who later divorced when she was 3-years-old.  Depite the divorce, Procter grew up feeling very loved and close to her family, which also included an adopted brother.  In the end, Procter and her husband decided to forego the long process of adoption and also stop the treatments.  Once this happened, Procter became pregnant naturally and gave birth to a baby around 7 pounds.

However, adoption isn’t fully off the table–Proctor may adopt a child over 5-years-old in a few years.  In the meantime, she’s finally enjoying the sweet joys of motherhood.

Celeb Bump Watch: Mariah Carey’s Pregnant!

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Is she or isn’t she? It seems like the rumor mills have been churning over whether or not Mariah Carey is pregnant basically since the day the 41-year-old songstress married hubby Nick Cannon two years ago.

Well, it’s finally official:  Carey confirmed that she and Cannon, 30, are expecting their first child this spring.

“Yes, we are pregnant. This is true,” she announced this morning on the Today show.

The couple is shy to give any specific details in order to “hold onto a shred of privacy,” but they did admit that they haven’t found out whether it’s a boy or a girl yet.

“”It’s absolutely emotional,” Cannon explained. “The greatest gift on earth is a child.”

Catch the entire interview, where Carey dishes on pregnancy, motherhood, and her miscarriage, tonight on Access Hollywood.
