Celeb Baby Roundup: Everyone's Having Boys!
They say all trends come in threes, so does that make baby boys the latest Hollywood "it accessory"? Because Orange is the New Black star Jason Biggs, X-Factor's Simon Cowell, and adorable indie actors Teresa Palmer and Marc Webber all welcomed baby boys within days of each other!
Simon and his girlfriend Lauren Silverman were the first to welcome their blue-blanketed bundle on Valentine's Day, which is the sweetest birthday ever, and one even the most date-challenged dad can't forget. The couple named their son Eric Philip (Eric is Simon's dad's name), and he was born at 5:45 p.m., in New York City, and weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Within hours of the delivery, Simon tweeted, "Very happy to say Eric was born ... Healthy and handsome," and the first photos arrived two days later as he told his fans what a happy surprise being a father already was, "I never knew how much love and pride I would feel," he tweeted.
On February 15—11 days past the baby's due date—Jason and his wife Jenny Mollen announced via Instagram that their first child, Sid, was born at 5:33 p.m. at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles and weighed 8 pounds and 8 ounces, and was 21.25 inches long. "Full head of hair, huge penis," Jenny jokingly captioned the first photo of their son. Obviously, the couple shares the same sense of humor!
Then Australian actress Teresa announced via Instagram, "Thank you God for blessing us with the most divine gift of our baby son. Introducing Bodhi Rain Palmer born safely, lovingly and naturally last night [on February 17]." Bodhi—who weighed 8 pounds at birth—means "Enlightened one," Rain means "Abundant Blessings From Above," and the couple chose Palmer as his last name, explains Teresa, because "Mark's [5-year-old] son Isaac didn't take his dad's name either."
So much baby testosterone going around! The next Hollywood wave will have to be girls!
