This week we found out that Tess Holliday and her fiance Nick Holliday welcomed a baby boy named Bowie Juniper earlier this month!

I am so totally excited for them. They’re such a gorgeous family. Now all we need is for Tess and Nick to get married.

In celebration, I’ve chosen this wonderful piece of fan art by crimsonvermillion on DeviantArt. It’s an interesting watercolor-like image manipulation of one of Tess’ famous shots.

Lil’ Kim’s Newborn: New Addition to Crazy Celeb Baby Names

 

Monday morning at 9:58 a.m., Lil’ Kim and rapper Mr. Papers welcomed their first child.

The baby girl was born in New Jersey at Hackensack University Medical Center. She weighs 6 pounds and 5 ounces.

Her name?

Royal Reign.

I’m wondering if it’s going to be Royal Reign Papers or Royal Reign Jones.

The former makes it sound so much more ridiculous.

Celebrity babies are subjected to some crazy names. Here’s a list of Royal Reign’s outrageously named playmates:

Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee

Born: September 28, 2003

Name Inspiration: Grandaddy song “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot”

Parents: Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
Name Inspiration: Gwyneth Paltrow told Oprah in 2004 that “When [they] were first pregnant, her daddy said, ‘If it’s a girl, I think her name should be Apple.’ And it just sounded so sweet, and it just conjures up such a lovely picture […] you know apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome, and it’s biblical.”

6 Love-ly Things That Occurred in the Celeb World Post-Valentine’s Day 2014

heart-208223_640

Valentine’s Day weekend is over. You probably had way too much fun slipping and sliding on the treacherous ice in the Northeast if you happen to live there.

Some amazing news spread left and right over the passed three days. I mean, “jaw-dropping, OMG, AWW” quality kind of events happened in pop culture.

This list was originally “5 Love-ly Things That Occurred in the Celeb World Post-Valentine’s Day 2014” about fifteen minutes ago.

That’s just how amazing.

So here we go:

1. The epic photos of Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell’s son, Eric Phillip Selig Cowell, born in New York City on February 14th. Now that is a name.

2. Ellen Paige comes out as gay. Alright! Can you star in another movie with Michael Cera ASAP? Can that be arranged, Ellen? I’m having Juno deprivations at the moment.

3. Christina Aguilera is now engaged to Matthew Rutler. This guy definitely knows how to sweep a girl off her feet.

4. Jennifer Lawrence is presenting at the Oscars this year. I’m literally dying for the premiere of the 86th Academy Award Show on Sunday, March 2nd to come already.

5. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s daughter Hazel was born today, February 16th. Daddy Krasinski is jazzed about it.

6. Canadian artist LIGHTS and Blessthefall’s Beau Bokan’s baby girl, Rocket Wild Bokan, has arrived! In honor of this, can we just watch them cover Lana del Rey’s “Video Games”?

This is too much for love cupid Eros to handle. Can we cool it until next year, guys?

Snooki Calls Kate Middleton A MILF

snooki and kate

Oh, Snooki.

As many of you know, the royal baby’s family portraits leaked three hours early via Twitter. Apparently not even the royals can control the internet.

Or Snooki’s mouth for that matter.

After seeing the beautiful family portraits, one with just Kate, William, and George, and another with the family plus dogs Tilly and Lupo, Snooki decided to gush over them on her Celebuzz blog:

“Congrats to Will and Kate on their beautiful baby boy George! He totally looks like his daddy here, and I can already tell he’s going to be the cutest royal baby ever!!! And can I just say how fricken AMAZING Kate looks?! Like why is she perfect?! She just gave birth and she looks like she’s ready to walk the runway.

“She is my inspiration for my next pregnancy! So obsessed with this family and cannot wait to hear more about them! We all know they will be amazing parents to their precious nugget! I’m just waiting to hear the dirty poop and pee stories!!! Kisses to you guys, and Kate….you’re a MILF.”

Umm, what?!

Leave it to Snooki to go over the top with her compliments.

A simple, “and Kate…you look gorgeous” or “…stunning”, or “…SEXY” even would have done.

But no. MILF just had to be her word of choice.

Gotta give the girl some props for managing to be relevant in the revealing of these portraits, though.

 

The Royal Baby Might Become a TV Star

Prince George Alexander Louis was born a mere 18 days ago, and he has already been offered a role in a British soap opera.

What a lucky baby boy.

John Whiston, the creative director of the show Coronation Street, told The Daily Star that he wanted the royal baby to join the cast, Prince William and Kate included.

“It would be fantastic to get Kate [Middleton], [Prince] William and George there with a pair of tiny baby scissors,” he said.

Georgie just recently got his birth certificate for crying out loud! He hasn’t even been christened yet and they’re already trying to cast him in a television show?

Madness!

Coronation Street is the longest running British soap opera, so I can see how it would be an honor for the cast to work alongside the royal family.

If the family decides to take the role, they will not be the first Duke and Dutchess to appear on the show. The Duke of Bedford, John Ian Robert Russell appeared in Episode 1288 (21st May 1973) and Episode 1289 (23rd May 1973).

So is a television role in the cards for little Prince George?

North West, be jealous.

Simon Cowell is Going to be a Father?!

This morning I learned that 53 year old grouch Simon Cowell, X Factor judge and former American Idol judge, is going to be a father.

And that’s not the best part.

The mother of his child is his friend Andrew Silverman’s estranged wife, Lauren Silverman.

Yes. You read correctly. Simon Cowell got his friend’s wife pregnant.

The two have been hanging out quite a bit over the past two years.

Real estate developer Andrew Silverman and 36 year old New York socialite Lauren Silverman “have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,” a source says. “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”

Lauren Silverman plans to leave her husband to be with Cowell. She’s ten weeks along in her pregnancy.

I’m not sure how to react to this news.

First there’s the fact that he’s having a child with a woman who is married to another man.

Another man who he happens to call his “mate.”

Isn’t this a violation of bro code? I mean, I know that Andrew and Lauren have been separated for a while but Jesus! That doesn’t give him permission to swoop in and impregnate the woman!

Then there’s the terrible reality that this is Simon Cowell we’re talking about here. The man we love to hate.

Back in 2009 he said, “God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts. With kids, you’ve got a routine you can’t escape from. You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.”

His feelings on being a father changed last year, as he stated in an interview with AOL Music, “I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them. The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids. I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”

This year he claims, “If I knew I could be – how do I put this delicately – faithful, I would. I do like kids, I’m just not sure I’d be any good for the first six months. I don’t think I’d adopt because I’d rather have my own. I’d have to say I’d like a little girl.”

I wouldn’t exactly trust him to babysit a child, much less be the parent or guardian of one. He’s just not the type of guy you can picture cradling a child in his arms.

No matter how hard I try I just can’t do it!

I hope Simon Cowell treats the youngster better than he treats the contestants on The X Factor.

I really do.

Two Most Watched Baby Bumps of 2013

Come summer, the world will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Duchess of Cambridge and Kim Kardashian’s baby. Regardless of which one you may perceive to be more special, these two infants will be getting loads of attention from the moment they come out of the wombs of Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian.

Both babies are due in July, and British bookmakers give the odds of 50/1 that they might even be born on the same day. Yes, I’m sure anyone would be stoked to find out that their baby might be born on the same day as the Duchess of Cambridge’s, but this would put Kim at a disadvantage. Baby Kardashian would be robbed of all the publicity. After all, Kanye West, the father of Kim’s baby, is most definitely not His Royal Highness. If the babies are born within a two week gap of one another, publicity for both newborns won’t be a problem.

UK celebrity psychic Jayne Wallace predicts that Kim will have a baby boy. Kanye really wants a boy, so this prediction is great news for him. For Kim? Not so much. Keep in mind, though, that these are just predictions. The royal couple plan to keep the baby’s gender a secret, so we won’t know anything until he or she is born.

Pregnancy is taking its toll on the Duchess. She was hospitalized in December for Hyperemesis Gravidarum, also known as an extreme case of morning sickness. She was released soon enough to appear at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in London on December 16. There she showed off her lovely baby bump and presented two awards. Kate is expected to appear for the second time since the world learned of her pregnancy on February 19 at the women’s rehabilitation facility Hope House. She is a patron to the facility’s Action on Addiction Program. During her visit, the Duchess will meet with clients and staff.

Although Kim Kardashian doesn’t seem to be having any complications with her pregnancy, rumors are spreading about her ending up a single mom in the future. Kanye recently went to Abu Dhabi for a concert and told Kim not to go with him because of safety issues. It is possible that Kanye just wants some time away from his baby momma.

Both women look absolutely stunning while showing off their baby bumps!

Any guesses for what names the couples are thinking about for their newest additions to their families?
