From the department of things-you-knew-but-hadn’t-been-confirmed, Carla Bruni has made an official statement that she is pregnant. This is after her father implied it back in May, after she’s been spotted wearing maternity clothes, and after being photographed in a bikini that revealed a wee bit of a baby bump. But, hey, everyone needs to take their own time making these matters public knowledge. In her statements, Carla implied that the pregnancy wasn’t planned. “The coming happiness [was] unexpected and unhoped for,” she said. Guess that’s what happens when you keep the queen waiting while you get it on?
Carla isn’t talking when it comes to how far along she is, or the baby’s gender. “There are certain things which one should keep secret,” she said. Still, we are excited for her and her husband, Nicolas Sarkozy. After the jump, some baby gifts we’d like to get for them. Keep reading »
The celebrity stork had a pretty darn busy weekend. Two highly anticipated famous babes arrived within hours of each other—Victoria and David Beckham gave birth to a baby girl, while Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy had a baby boy. While we don’t know much about Kate and Matt’s baby, besides the fact that he is healthy, Posh and Becks were willing to divulge a little more information. Their babe was born early Sunday morning and the two said they were “over the moon” to finally have a girl, after three boys. They also announced their baby’s name—Harper Seven Beckham—leading many to speculate whether they named their wee one after Harper Lee of To Kill A Mockingbird fame or after the magazine Harper’s Bazaar.
Regardless, I think Victoria, David, Kate, and Matthew should take the simultaneous arrival of their little bundles of joy as a sign. Keep reading »
A big congratulations to Denise Richards! The actress and former wife of Charlie Sheen has adopted a baby girl. The new little one’s name is Eloise Joni Richards. Apparently, Denise let her and Charlie’s two daughters—Sam and Lola—pick their new sister’s name, hence “Eloise.” As for Joni—that’s Denise’s mama’s name. After the announcement of the adoption was made last night, Denise tweeted, “Thank you all for your sweet messages. The girls and I are over the moon and so is my dad Grandpa Irv…xo.” Here’s hoping that the life adjustment is a super easy one for all of them. But I do have to question the name Eloise. I mean, now the girl is fated to live at the Plaza and have a pet turtle Skipperdee. Though I guess as things go, that’s not so bad. [People] Keep reading »
The word on the street had been that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were looking to sell the first photo of their twins, Morrocan and Monroe, to a tabloid for $200K. Maybe they were mad at that lowball offer—I mean, Angelina and Brad got $14 million for theirs? Because over the weekend, Mariah posted a photo of Monroe on Twitter along with the caption, “#dembabiesruntings -This is baby Monroe saying ‘no pictures dahhhhling’ at 7+1/2 weeks..oh dear.” Man, that little palm is adorbs.

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 »
