First Photos: Celebrity Babies Make Their Debut

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

As the world waits for the first images of North West - the newborn daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West - the question remains: to tweet or to make a deal? Everly

With rumors swirling that Kim’s momager Kris Jenner will introduce her granddaughter on her new daytime TV show, to reported offers of up to $2 million for a magazine cover debut, we await the first images of baby KimYe.

Let’s take a look at the big business of releasing the first photos of Tinseltown’s tots.

It’s been a few years since A-list couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt received a whopping $15 million for the first pictures of their now 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The Jolie-Pitt twins – along with their four other siblings – are now just as famous as their parents.

The debut of celebrity children continues to make headlines. While the demand has not died, many star couples are passing on multi-million

Knox and Vivienne

dollar paychecks for the first glimpse of their tots, and releasing the debut photos via social media.

R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé unveiled the first photos of their daughter Blue Ivy on Tumblr, just a few weeks after her January 2012 birth.

In June, star couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum released the first photo of their newborn daughter Everly via Facebook. Levi

For a long time running, PEOPLE magazine had a monopoly on introductory celebaby photos. But today, many stars are turning to competitors who are doling out generous offerings.

Other high-profile parents are releasing their own photos for free via social media. While some do not debut any photos at all, and are simply caught by the paparazzi, as was the case recently for Sarah Michelle Gellar who was spotted for the first time with 9-month-old son Rocky.

Here’s a list of top 10 most expensive baby photos to date. Max and Emme

  • $15 million – Knox Leon & Vivienne Marcheline (Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie)
  • $6 million – Max & Emme Muñiz (Jennifer Lopez/Marc Anthony)
  • $4.1 million – Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt (Brad Pitt /Angelina Jolie)
  • $3 million – Levi Alves McConaughey (Matthew McConaughey/Camila Alves)

Celebrities Raising Families Outside Hollywood

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop

In the land of fame and fortune, the limelight can be a bit too blaring for some high-profile families.

From Oscar winners Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas to Julia Roberts, CelebrityBabyScoop takes a look at five celebrities who opted for a peaceful and low-key locale outside of Tinseltown.

Vera Farmiga
The Departed star Vera Farmiga and her musician husband Renn Hawkey are raising their two children – son Fynn, 4, and 2-year-old daughter Gytta – in Upstate New York, about two hours outside of New York City.

The family-of-four reside on a farm with four goats and no nanny. They rely on the help of family members when they require a babysitter.

“In another life, I was a shepherdess,” the mom-of-two said.

“I like being off the grid,” the Up in the Air actress added. “I want to be self-sufficient and live off the land. I’ve become a farmer in my spare time. It’s really sort of a great place where I can be centered and have a great perspective on what it is I want and need.”

Julia Roberts
Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts and husband Danny Moder raise their three children – 8-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and Henry, 5 – on a ranch in Taos, New Mexico.

“It’s peaceful, and it’s a relief,” Julia said of raising her family away from the spotlight. “I always say you can’t be in a bad mood here. I don’t know if it’s New Mexico or just the mountains, but you can’t be silly in a negative way. You can be silly in a fun, whimsical way, but the petty, trite things that make you go, ‘Oh, God, it’s not the right size’ or ‘Why is this happening like this?’ —that kind of stuff doesn’t exist so much here. Everything is kind of clear.”

Michael J. Fox
Actor and Parkinson’s research advocate Michael J. Fox and his longtime love Tracy Pollan have raised their four kids – Sam, 23, twins Aquinnah and Schuyler, nearly 18, and Esmé, 11 – outside of the limelight.

“We made a decision really early on, before the Parkinson’s diagnosis, that we’d move back East,” the Back to the Future star said.

“We’d just bought a house in Bel Air [Los Angeles], but we never moved into it,” Michael added. “We had an awakening one day that we don’t want to raise our kids in an environment that’s largely show business and built on whose father had a bigger opening weekend. It seemed fraught with peril. New York seemed like a better bet. There’s much more variety in the people that they meet and the relationships they have [in New York]. It’s much more real. They don’t live in a bubble. And I know where my kids are all the time.” He adds, “We have a responsibility to make sure that they’re good people, not destructive; that they’re contributors who don’t feel entitled. They’re good kids. I can’t imagine reading about them [in the tabloids].”

Jamie Lynn Spears
Jamie Lynn Spears was just 16 when she had one of the most high-profile teen pregnancies in Hollywood history. The lil’ sister of popstar Britney Spears escaped the public eye and moved home to Mississippi to raise her now 4-year-old daughter Maddie Briann.

“Was it hurtful for my parents to read stuff about their daughters? Yes. Obviously seeing [sister Britney Spears' negative tabloid coverage], I knew how far it could go,” Jamie Lynn, now 21, said.

“I’ve never wanted to be put under that kind of scrutiny,” the young mom added. “I just wanted to get away from it as much as I could, to just go away and be a mom and figure out what I wanted, and to earn a sense of respect back for myself. Move to a town in the middle of nowhere and just raise my child. All I could be was a good mother. If anybody had anything to say after that, there was nothing I could do.”

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta Jones
Academy Award-winners Catherine Zeta-Jones and husband Michael Douglas recently relocated their family from Bermuda to New York City. The America’s Sweethearts actress revealed their reasons for the big move.

“It was to etiquette the kids and just to come back and enjoy this fantastic city we’re able to live in,” she said.

However, the loss of anonymity took some getting used to for their two children, son Dylan, 12, and daughter Carys, 9.

“Well, for them, they were naked opening the back door — so was I — and just running out naked into the garden and it’s really hard to do that in Central Park,” the mom-of-two said.

10 Celebrity Moms Pregnant Under 30

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Celebrity Moms Under 30This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Some say over 40 is too old for pregnancy, while others argue that under 30 is too young

Let’s take a look within Hollywood and see who has entered motherhood in their teens and 20s. From Britney Spears and her sis Jamie Lynn Spears, to moms-to-be Hilary Duff and Snooki, look through our list of 10 young Hollywood moms.

 Snooki:

In the worst-kept secret in reality TV history, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 24, recently confirmed that she is pregnant and engaged to the father, beau of one and a half years Jionni LaValle.

And the Jersey Shore star and LaValle, also 24, know just what onlookers are thinking. “I have different priorities now,” the reformed party girl said. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.”

 Hilary Duff:

Disney darling Hilary Duff, 24, is expecting her first child with hockey star hubby Mike Comrie, 31. “I feel like the first pregnant woman on Earth,” Hilary said. “Every time I feel something, I’m like, ‘What is this? What’s happening?’ And I’m Googling and finding out that everyone has had the same symptoms and I’m totally not original.” The Lizzie McGuire star went on to talk about her first pregnancy. “Today I got out of the shower and one side of my stomach [was] way bigger than the other side. It was the first time that I saw the baby actually moving in there!,” she said. “It was like I had a little alien inside!”

Britney Spears:

When pop princess Britney Spears was 22, she wed her second husband Kevin Federline. At the tender age of 23, Brit gave birth to her first child, Sean Preston. Just one year later, the Oops!… I Did It Again singer welcomed her second son, Jayden James.

Brit has opened up about how motherhood has changed her life. “As a mother, the one thing that always goes through your head is, ‘You’re never enough.’ You never can be enough—or do enough—for your kids,” she said. “It’s a never-ending issue for me. I had to learn: Don’t beat yourself up so much…. You have to take it one day at a time, do the best that you can and enjoy yourself. I notice that if there are some times I’ve been stressed, because I’m human and stress about things, that affects your kids. So you have to make sure you’re a happy mom so they can be happy.”

Jamie Lynn Spears:

Not to be outdone by big sister Britney, Jamie Lynn Spears welcomed her first child at the young age of 17. The teen mom and her then-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, welcomed daughter Maddie Briann in June 2008.

Jamie Lynn recently talked about being embarrassed at the time to reach out for birth control. “I was 16. I’d had one boyfriend. It doesn’t make it perfect or all right,” she said. “Casey was my first love,” she said. “Since the day I saw him, I just wanted to marry him and be with him forever and ever. I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor. And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it [felt] especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control. I didn’t want to ask my doctor, because she had a little girl.”

The young mom went on to say she never wanted to “glamorize teen pregnancy.” “When I found out I was pregnant, [my parents and I] decided to do an interview with OK! magazine about it. I knew I needed to give an explanation to my fans, and I wanted it to be in my words first. I had to make a decision that I could sleep with every night. I did feel responsible for the young girls and the mothers who I probably confused and let down. I apologize for that. But I wasn’t trying to glamorize teen pregnancy. I hated when [the tabloids] said that. Everybody is dealt a hand of cards. It was my choice to play them the way I played them. But the hateful comments hurt. [Parent groups were outraged at the Nickelodeon star, and tabloids printed rumors that Spears had a miscarriage, that she was giving up her baby, and that Aldridge was cheating on her.] I was already upset about having to tell my parents and Casey’s parents. To have the world come down on a situation that was already affecting my family hugely was hard. But this was my situation, and I did the best I could.”

Miranda Kerr:

On January 6, 2011, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, then 27, welcomed their first child, son Flynn. In our 4th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards, baby Flynn topped the charts as our favorite new tot in Tinseltown! [Flynn is] “the best thing I’ve ever done!,” Miranda gushed. “Every day it just gets better,” she added.
