On Friday, Nick Cannon sat down on the “The Gayle King Show” to talk about being a new papa to twins. “It was surreal for me,” he said of being in the delivery room. “Of course, it had to be a production and I was the production manager. I had a camera in one hand and was DJing with the other.” DJing, you ask? Apparently, Mariah wanted her babies to come into the world hearing a song sung by … herself. And not just any Mariah song, mind you—a live version full of audience applause. And thus, her babies emerged to the sound of her performing “Fantasy” at Madison Square Garden. For real.
Oh, and Nick of course talked about “dem babies“‘ names. Keep reading »
“My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
—Nick Cannon‘s tweet from just a few hours after wife Mariah Carey gave birth to twins on Saturday, which happened to be their third wedding anniversary. Good point—not even butterfly shaped diamonds top “dem babies.” [People] Keep reading »
Break out the cigars! Mariah Carey has finally given birth to her twins! Concluding what seems like the longest pregnancy in history, at least to me, Carey popped out first a baby girl and then a baby boy at around lunch today (EDT). Husband Nick Cannon was by her side during the delivery, which I hope was just like honey. Sorry, bad joke. According to reports, the new family of four listened to Carey’s “We Belong Together” after the children were born, which, personally, I think is amazing. Oh, and apparently they are renewing their wedding vows tomorrow. Seriously? Isn’t Mimi tired? Anyway, the twins’ names have not been released yet. Will keep you posted because I know you are dying to know. Congrats Mariah and Nick! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“We have the breast milk Fed-Exed from where she is. We have one nanny and we’re very hands-on. We change him, we bathe him, we feed him and we read him a story every night… The worst thing you can do to a child, and I’ve seen it happen so many times, is the silver spoon. Being the child of a famous person is very difficult, and we’re very well aware of the pitfalls of that.”
—Elton John explains that, besides growing up in a household with an outrageous number of sequined platform shoes, baby Zachary is leading a relatively normal life. That said, having breast milk shipped in from his surrogate mom is a little unusual. Doesn’t it need to be refrigerated? [People] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Angelina Jolie visited Somali refugees at a camp near the Tunisia-Libya border. But of course it wasn’t the humanitarian work that had people talking. At the camp, Angelina was photographed in a tank top and it appears as though a line has been added to her tattoo which lists the latitude and longitude of where her children were born. This has many people guessing that Angie and Brad are adopting another baby. The new numbers on the tattoo aren’t easy to make out, but the first one appears to be 35 degrees north. Some think this means the couple could be adopting from Algeria.
But there’s an alternate theory. Keep reading »
A month ago, Rachel Zoe helped Anne Hathaway through eight wardrobe changes at the Oscars. And yesterday, she gave birth to a six pound baby boy, Skyler Morrison Berman. “Mom and Dad ‘LITERALLY’ could not be happier or more in love with their son!” she said in a statement.
Huge congratulations to Rachel and Rodger! After the jump, the baby gifts we’d love to give their new baby. Keep reading »
“Obviously, we’re very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I’m going to say it: It’s a little girl. We’re still in shock. Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon.”
—David Beckham tells reporters over the weekend that he and Victoria‘s fourth baby will be a girl. I can already hear the sound of Victoria buying up all the tiny pink dresses in London. Will this be the final member of the Beckham brood? [People] Keep reading »
At only two months old, John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s new baby Ben was already flying planes back in January. Since then he’s taught himself the piano and will probably move on to advanced military strategies if I’m reading this right. “Extra” reports:
“The baby was playing this tiny piano we got him, and we were so blown away!” Preston said. “A lot of times kids will bang it, but he was using his fingers.”
While Scientologists have a long-documented history of pulling shit straight out of their ass (See: The New Yorker exposing the church’s penchant for rampant forgery including L. Ron Hubbard’s military records.), I think it’s safe to say we’re witnessing the early years of their new Messiah. I mean, Christ, he’s flying planes and playing pianos at barely half a year old!

A volunteer fire truck slammed into singer Jewel’s car in Stephenville, Texas, on Friday, sending the folk-turned-country star, who is pregnant, to the hospital for tests.
“Jewel was hit by a fire truck this morning in Texas,” her rep said in a statement. “The singer was taken to the hospital and current medical tests conducted indicate that she and the baby are doing fine.”
A local newspaper, The Stephenville Empire-Tribune, ran photos showing Jewel’s completely totaled car, with the bulk of the damage appearing to be in the front and passengers’ side. It’s not clear whether she was driving or in the passenger seat. Read more… Keep reading »
Earlier this month, Nick Cannon let it slip that Mariah Carey is due in late April. This is after accidentally revealing in December that she was, in fact, pregnant with twins. Apparently, the two aren’t letting their babies’ gender be a surprise—the word on the street is that one of their babes is a boy and the other is a girl. Basically, the have ordered the sample platter of babies.
This, of course, complicates gift gifting. After the jump, the presents we’d get for Mariah and Nick’s babies, if we were invited to the shower. Which, uh, we won’t be. Rude. Keep reading »
