In other pregnancy news, "Nashville" star Hayden Panettiere joins the latest round of celebs to welcome a baby. Panettiere gave birth last Tuesday to her daughter, named Kaya Evdokia, confirms People. (Find out more about the baby name!)

This is the first child for Panettiere and her fiancé, professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko. The couple never officially announced their pregnancy, but the actress did accidentally reveal the gender of her baby to E! News in August.

In a May 2013 issue of Glamour, before her pregnancy and engagement, Panettiere shared her thoughts on being a mother, "Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there's nothing that I feel like I can't accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids."

Congratulations to the first-time parents!

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
