Celebrity Trend: Gender-Neutral Baby Names

Celebs are infamous for giving their kids some, er, creative names. Just as the world was recovering from Apple (of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin) and Suri (Cruise… duh), along came Blue Ivy Carter and North West.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are the latest celebs to welcome a beautiful daughter – Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher. Wyatt is the latest in a trend of unisex, or gender-neutral, baby names.

RELATED: Celebrity Baby Names

Earlier this year, Drew Barrymore gave birth to a girl named Frankie. (It should be noted that Frankie’s mom is also the owner of a gender-neutral name!) I don’t know about you, but when I think Frankie, I immediately think Valli.

Harper has also been a popular name in recent years, used by the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, David and Victoria Beckham, and Bill Hader. The name is popular as a girl’s name, like To Kill A Mockingbird author, Harper Lee, but can also be worn by a boy, for example, Paul Simon’s son.

This year, Kelly Clarkson gave birth to a daughter she called River – a name more famously given to men (i.e. River Phoenix). Speaking of Kelly, we know a surfer (hint: surname Slater) who also goes by this common girl’s name.

Bowie is an oddly popular choice in 2014, as the middle name of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s son, Apollo Bowie, and designer Rebecca Minkoff’s daughter, Bowie Lou. We can only assume it is derived from the surname of everyone’s favorite androgynous pop god, David Bowie.

What are you favorite unisex names?

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are Engaged!

Hollywood’s cutest couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are engaged!

After months of speculation, Kunis, 30, stepped out wearing a huge engagement ring while shopping with her mother late last week.

The couple have remained silent on the issue, but Kunis posted a photo of the pair smiling on Instagram on Wednesday, and hid her hands on a dog walk with Kutcher this weekend.

Kunis and Kutcher 36, started dating in April 2012 after his split from ex-wife Demi Moore, 51. They met on the set of  That ’70s Show.

Kutcher and Moore married in September 2005 and split in 2011. Kutcher filed for divorce in 2012 which was finalised in November 2013.

The divorce was prolonged as Moore sought spousal support and legal fees and were at odds over how to divide their estimated fortune of more than $US300 million ($335 million).

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher Divorce Finalised

Two years after separating, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are finally divorced.

Moore, 51, and Kutcher, 35, were married in 2005 and called it quits in November 2011 over allegations Kutcher cheated.

However it was Kutcher that filed for divorce in December 2012. So why did it take so long to officially end the marriage?

The two spent months fighting over how to divide their estimated fortune of more than $US300 million ($330,000).

 

Moore also wanted spousal support, despite being worth more than Kutcher.

The agreement was finally reached after Kutcher gave Moore more than he had to, according to TMZ.

 

Kutcher has been dating That 70’s Show co-star Mila Kunis, 30, since April 2012.

Ashton and Demi’s dilemma

Ashton and Demi’s dilemma


Will Ashton be the only baby in the relationship?
Hollywood has been gossiping for months about the impending engagement of Demi Moore and her young lover Ashton Kutcher. But now a source close to the pair has revealed the reason why Kutcher, 26, hasn’t popped the question. While the Punkd star adores Demi’s kids, he’s admitted that he too would like to have children with the 41-year-old Charlie’s Angels star. The trouble is, Demi doesn’t know if she wants to add more children to her brood of three daughters, with ex-husband Bruce Willis. Guess they better get this one sorted out before they consider tying the knot…



New dad Charlie Sheen
Hollywood baby news
Actor Charlie Sheen, 38, and wife Denise Richards, 33, have become parents! Baby daughter Sam Sheen arrived on March 8 in LA weighing in at 3.3kgs. This is the couple’s first child together. Sheen also has a 19-year-old daughter, Cassandra, from his first marriage. Also on the baby front, rumour has it that mum-to-be Gwyneth Paltrow is expecting a baby boy! Insiders have reported that the actress served up a cake with blue icing at a recent tea party in her London home.



Don’t mess with Jude!
Jude’s girlfriend a real mess
Hunky actor Jude Law,31, is apparently set to ditch new girlfriend Sienna Miller – because she’s too messy! Sources say that Jude is fanatical about order and loves the sight of his wardrobe sorted out with all his clothes in colour order! He’s likes to keep his desk neat at all times and has a penchant for freshly sharpened pencils. Sienna doesn’t cut the mustard when it comes to organisation – missing appointments, losing things and forgetting her purse and mobile phone. Seems like Sienna, 21, needs to get things in order if she wants to hang on to Mr Tidy!



Happy Anna & Enrique
Enrique and Anna still paired up
Tennis pin-up girl Anna Kournikova and her Latino pop prince boyfriend Enrique Iglesias appear to be very much a couple, despite persistent rumours that their relationship is in trouble. The pair are in town for Enrique’s tour for new album 7.The couple were photographed in Brisbane last week, looking every bit the happy couple, Enrique revealing that Anna, who’s been Down Under before, was acting as his tour guide. “She loves Australia and I have never been, so she was really keen to join me,” he said.

Paris Hilton Sex Tape Download Frenzy

Paris Hilton Sex Tape Download Frenzy
Believe it or not Paris Hilton?s sex romp video is making her ex-boyfriend Rick Solomon a small fortune, thanks to sales through a Czech Republic internet site. Solomon claims that more 50,000 copies of the tape have been sold for US$50 a pop to download the 37-minute sex session, in which he stars with the hotel heiress. He says, “I had tons of shame from this whole thing and now, I’m … at least making some money off it. It’s doing really well.” Solomon admits he’s not worried about comeback from his ex or her family as his get-rich-quick scheme takes off: “I own the rights and they can’t stop me. I haven’t heard a word.” Hope he remembers that when the Hilton lawyers come after him!



Ashton Kutcher

Is Ashton Kutcher really a toy boy?
Demi Moore?s toyboy is being questioned about his age. No he hasn?t been underage drinking or showing his fake ID around Hollywood but Ashton Kutcher?s real age has come into question from several media outlets. Journalists at American tabloid the National Inquirer have alleged the studly toyboy is actually four years older than previously believed. The star claims to have turned 26 on February 7, but National Inquirer journalists insist he’s actually 30. The actor’s representatives insist his listed age as 26 is correct. The reason for lying seem to be unknown but at least if he is 30, his age difference with 41-year-old girlfriend Demi Moore would only be 11 years. Bet that makes a whole lotta difference!



Ben Affleck

Affleck after J.Lo
Ben Affleck has shocked the media yet again! No he hasn?t reunited with Jennifer Lopez but he has done something equally as questionable ? Affleck has blamed the world?s media for his failed engagement to the Latino star. Affleck has accused the press of putting too much pressure on their relationship and causing ?irreparable damage? to their union. Speaking publicly for the first time since the split, Affleck has told Access Hollywood, “The media has kind of evolved to where it’s become so much more competitive in terms of… there’s only so many stories. So naturally, stuff becomes blown out of proportion or exaggerated.” And Affleck assures he won’t be photographed with a new lady on his arm anytime soon, explaining, “It’s a little time of recovery for me.” Boo Hoo Benny! Sorry not a lot of sympathy here!

Wedding bells for Brittany Murphy

Wedding bells for Brittany Murphy

Actress Brittany Murphy, 26, and talent manager Jeff Kwatinetz 34, became engaged last week at a silent movie theater in Los Angeles, according to People magazine. The groovy couple started dating after Murphy’s breakup with Ashton Kutcher, her co-star in last years Just Married. Some critics claimed the Kutcher-Murphy union was just a publicity stunt to raise awareness for what is universally acknowledged as a very average movie. One question – if they were at a silent movie theatre – how did he know she said yes?



Robbie wants to settle down

Believe it or not, Robbie Williams is still telling anyone who will listen that he wants to settle down and have a family. He’s even gone so far as to swears his bad boy days are truly over! In an interview with Croatian magazine Story, Robbie claimed he had turned his back on one night stands and was looking for that special woman. He said: “My life is back to normal and I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I’ve realised that life is beautiful and fate has been very kind to me. “I am sure a lot of people will be surprised I am not supposedly having a string of affairs, but it’s true and I’m happier because of it.” He added that his lack of interest in having a succession of lovers and his search for a long-term partner was part of the reason he had lost interest in life in Los Angeles. The notorious wild man of music said: “LA is a city obsessed with sex. However, that’s not what I’m looking for. I’m in a phase of my life where I want to find a woman that I’d be happy with for longer. I’m looking for the woman of my life.” Pick me, pick me!



Mini-Me for Robbie?

Robbie went on to reveal he also wants kids and had accepted that when it happened his life would change forever. He said: “When I get kids I’ll leave Beverly Hills the moment it happens. It’s easy to see why, because all the kids that grow up there are unhappy. They simply experience too much in first decade of their lives. You never see a kid riding a bike in Beverly Hills.” To be precise, Robbie said he would like to have two kids, and added: “It doesn’t matter whether they are boys or girls, I only know that the name of my first child will be Sunny. We will live in England and most probably have a place in a countryside rather than the city.” Talk about forward planning Robbie! Plenty of Aussie chicks would no doubt be lining up for the job as Mrs Robbie Williams! But do leopards really change their spots?



Bloomin’ Orlando’s off the shelf

Lord Of The Rings heartthrob Orlando Bloom has always steered clear of discussing his love life, but the hunky actor has just admitted he’s in love. In case you are wondering who the object of his affection is, it is none other than the blonde babe from the teen surfer movie Blue Crush, 21 year-old actress Kate Bosworth. Orlando, who celebrated his 27th birthday this week, spent a romantic Christmas break with the surfer babydoll, after which he told an interviewer, “I’m in love with love. It’s heavenly when you’re falling for someone and you can’t stop thinking about her.” Gorgeous all round is our Orlando!

Who is the Sexiest of them all?

Who is the Sexiest of them all?

Decisions, decisions! Who would you choose if you had to pick between Brad Pitt, Ashton Kutcher, George Clooney, Lenny Kravitz, Justin Timberlake, Hugh Grant, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp? Well according to People magazine in the US, Johnny Depp is the Sexiest Man Alive 2003! Hello! Depp has been seen most recently in the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and has two young children with his unconventional French girlfriend, actress and pop singer Vanessa Paradis. Apparently, the actor, known for his ‘brooding eccentricities’, has mellowed since becoming a father. The 40-year-old film actor was bestowed the title for being “a little dangerous, having a secret and great warmth”. “Because he arrived at his new, happy place without selling out, without becoming slick or packaged or politically correct, he is a hero to his fans and an idol to his young costars,” says the magazine in its December issue. The actor, who launched into our lounge rooms in the 80’s with the hit series, 21 Jump Street went on to star in films including Edward Scissorhands, Chocolat and more recently From Hell. “Depp is known for hiding under layers of hats and blankets in his private life and behind oddball characters in his films,” said People but it added “he is finally coming to terms with his own charisma.”



Party over for Paris?

The videotape that won’t go away! Seems now our favourite hotel heiress, Paris Hilton, has taken the drastic move in canceling all press appearances – at least for the time being. The party princess was supposed to be out and about in the promoting The Simple Life, an upcoming reality TV show about her and a gal pal shot on a farm in Arkansas. But it appears the spotlight is a little too hot for Paris at the moment. The high-profile blonde has even cancelled a date on David Letterman’s Late Show. Paris professes to be “embarrassed and humiliated” by the skin flick doing the rounds on the Internet, but one would have to think the damage is done now so why not give the people what they want Paris? Partygirl Paris is also claiming the video is too embarrassing for her to watch, “I haven’t seen the tape yet,” Hilton revealed to US Weekly, when asked about the three-minute clip. “I don’t want to.” Seems this is one party Paris just wants to forget! “I can’t walk the streets,” she said. “It’s too embarrassing. I don’t want to go out anymore. I don’t want to party. This has really made me think about changes I want to make.” Boo hoo Paris! Perhaps she’ll just console herself with a little retail therapy, courtesy of her family fortunes? That should cheer her up!



Cruise no plans to marry Cruz

Tom Cruise has dropped a bombshell, revealing to UK paper The Mirror that he has no plans to marry his girlfriend Penelope Cruz. “I love Penelope and I have a lot of fun with her. She’s a beautiful human being but in terms of marriage there are no particular plans at this time,” he said. In another blow, that will no doubt have Penelope reeling, the 41-year-old actor, who shares custody of his two children with Nicole Kidman, has also revealed that he still loves his ex-wife! “I have always loved Nic and I always will. Always. That will never change – the times that we have had together,” he said. “I have always just wanted her to be happy and enjoy her life. That is what I want – I want her to be happy.” Would love to be a fly on the wall when Penelope gets wind of this!



Crudup walks out on pregnant girlfriend

And the ‘Rat of the Week’ award goes to Billy Crudup, the actor who was made famous by the film Almost Famous. Reports say he has dumped his longtime girlfriend Mary Louise Parker. No surprises there, this is a Hollywood couple after all, but what is surprising is that Parker is seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child! The pair have been together since 1996 but never married. While rumours abound about Crudup and Claire Danes, his co-star in an upcoming period piece, Crudup’s rep says “They’re old friends. Billy and Mary Louise have split up but that doesn’t mean anybody else is involved.” And Claire Danes’ rep echoed this sentiment with a statement that the pair “have been friends for 10 years and are not romantically involved.” Meanwhile, mother to be, Parker, a regular on The West Wing, is said to be “taking care of herself and her soon to be child.” Isn?t Clare Danes still with our very own groovy Bondi lovin? Ben Lee?

J.Lo to sue

J.Lo to sue

Looks like Jenny from the Block will be making an appearance in court in the near future ? she?s started legal proceedings against her former manager, Benny Medina. The actress/singer/model/entertainer is seeking millions of dollars in back-commissions claiming her former manager negotiated deals on her behalf without a license. This is a violation of the Californian Talent Agency Act, and if Medina is found guilty, it will void any contracts he negotiated for her and therefore she shouldn?t have had to pay him any commission. Phew!

Medina is not taking this lying down, hitting back at Ms Lopez by issuing the following statement “The accusation that I misappropriated money from Jennifer Lopez is both untrue and offensive… Lopez, by making false allegations against me, is now trying to add me to the long list of people whom she has used and discarded after she took from them all she could get.” He continued, “It is unfortunate that Ms. Lopez is using a Labor Commission suit as a means of mitigating her outstanding financial contractual obligations to my company and me… I look forward to the opportunity to have the world come to know the real Jennifer Lopez. I will defend myself against these lies and will collect from her every dollar for which I am owed.” Lopez is also seeking to dissolve any remaining partnerships with Medina and Handprint Entertainment. Owweee sounds like J.Lo may have bitten off more than she can chew this time!



Ed and Christy expecting?

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Ed Burns and Christy Turlington with a baby carriage? The gorgeous couple, who wed last month in San Francisco, after an extended courtship are apparently ?with child?. The fab two were spotted at birthing classes in New York. And with a new addition to the family on the horizon, the Burn-Turlington household are no doubt occupied with thoughts of baby names, and suitable godparents for the little one. There?s no shortage of divine celebrities amongst the couple?s inner circle. Their recent nuptials included A-list invitees like Sting and wife Trudi Styler, Vin Diesel and sexy Irish rocker Bono, who reportedly filled in for Turlington?s dad on march down the aisle – her father having passed away from lung cancer two years ago. Wonder if the U2 frontman will be given a guernsey as the baby’s godfather too?



Maguire says Spider-Man 2 ‘better’

Sensational Spider-man Tobey Maguire has reportedly revealed that the forthcoming spidey sequel is ?better? than the original. “I’m really happy with it … It’s going to be better than the first one. The story is a lot better,” he said last week from LA during a press conference for his new film Seabiscuit. Maguire, who shot to fame last year playing the superhero, said filming on the sequel was about two-thirds complete. In the sequel, Maguire’s character, Peter Parker, enrols as a university student, but two new villains, Dr Octopus and the Lizard, are hell bent on his destruction. The next arachnid installment is due to be released in the US in June 2004. Guess that puts pay to those nasty rumours doing the rounds that Maguire wasn?t going to be fit enough to be Spiderman again!



Demi?s boyfriend threatens to sue

BUSTED big time! Ashton Kutcher is threatening to sue the London Evening Standard for making up a quote about how much he likes “f***ing” current girlfriend, and mother of three,Demi Moore. The quote in question went something like this, Moore “was the hottest actress in Hollywood when I was growing up. I was in love with her when I was 10. Now it’s great, I’m (bleeping) her.” But the young star of Dude where?s my car? and That 70?s Show wants the paper to publish a retraction and issue an apology for publishing the fabricated interview in its July 7 issue – or suffer the legal consequences. “If the Evening Standard fails to provide Mr. Kutcher with an appropriate retraction and apology, he will evaluate all of his legal options,” “This is an example of some of the outrageous conduct that is committed by the media,” said publicist Matt Labov. “It is obvious that the Evening Standard wanted to publish attention-getting quotes from Mr. Kutcher about the relationship and, having none, simply made them up.” As if the press ever do that Mr Labov?
