Jennifer Love Hewitt Welcomes Baby Girl – and Secretly Marries

Jennifer Love Hewitt has given birth to a baby girl, Autumn James Hallisay.

But that’s not all, she and fiancé Brian Hallisay have secretly tied the knot!

“Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter,” her rep confirmed today. “Autumn James Hallisay was born on November 26.”

Hewitt, 34, began dating her Client List co-star Hallisay, 35, in 2012.

The actress, who shot to fame in Party of Five, recently lost her own mother to cancer.

“I lost my mom a little less than a year and a half ago to cancer,” Hewitt said in September. “Obviously, I got very lucky that even though I lost my mother, I lost her later in life, but it’s still had a profound effect on me.”

“I’ve always wanted to be a mum,” she said. “I had a great relationship with mine. I’m ready to pass on to my child all the great love that my mom had for me.”

The couple also decided to keep the baby’s sex a surprise.

“You sort of have these pictures in your mind of what [the baby’s going to look like],” she said in July. “I’m really excited to see what he or she is going to look like!”

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Holly Valance Gives Birth to Baby Girl

Holly Valance has given birth to a baby girl, Luka Violet Toni.

Valance, 30, and husband Nick Candy, 40, welcomed their first daughter two days ago in London.

“Holly is at home,” Candy told Britain’s The Telegraph. “We aren’t having any help at the moment. Holly doesn’t want any, she wants to do it all ourselves at this stage, but that might change – it has only been a few days.”

The property developer gushed about Valance. “She is a perfect mother. It was a natural birth. She is from a big Australian family, with younger siblings, so she knows exactly what she is doing.”

Their daughter’s second middle name Toni is a tribute to Candy’s late father who died six weeks ago.

“It is such a shame that dad died six weeks before Luka was born, but I had the best role model possible in him, so, hopefully, if I can be anything like the father he was to me, when it comes to raising Luka, we’ll be onto a winner.”

The couple, who started dating in 2009, married last year in a lavish Beverly Hills ceremony with guests including Elton John and Simon Cowell.

Congratulations to the happy parents!

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have welcomed a baby boy on Saturday in L.A., their first child together.

Update: Berry and Martinez have named their son Maceo-Robert!

Martinez, 47, was by his wife’s side for the birth at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. Berry’s 5-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey, also visited her baby brother.

In April, Berry expressed her joy at having a second child. “This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth.

“Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”

The Oscar-winning actress has been busy filming in recent times, shooting X-Men: Days of Future PastTulia and new TV drama, Steven Spielberg’s Extant, where she’ll play an astronaut returning home after a year-long solo mission in space.

Congratulations to Halle and Olivier!

Josh Duhamel Gushes About Son Axl

New dad Josh Duhamel can’t stop gushing about his one month-old son Axl Jack, or wife Fergie, saying she looks better now than before giving birth!

“We can’t stop staring at him. He’s our little man, we made him together,” Duhamel told E! News. “There’s something you can’t really describe until you go through it. I think any parents out there would understand that…It’s just an incredible time for both of us.”

The actor also joked about life with a newborn.

“They tell you that at his age, all they do is eat, sleep and poop.

“And what I’ve learned — what surprises me — is they can actually do all three at the same time. He can actually eat, sleep and poop at the same time. Who knew?”

The couple released another photo of their adorable son last week, but it’s the first photo taken by wife Fergie that at his first hearing test that had everyone wondering if he was already following  in his mum’s musical footsteps.

“It was just funny — it wasn’t his cutest photo — but it was very fitting considering who his mother is,” Duhamel explains. “It looked like he was jammin‘ to music at two days old. And so, that was the photo she wanted to put out first.”

And Duhamel, 40 can’t stop raving about Fergie, 38, either.
“She is doing so great. She really is. She is happy,” he gushed. “She looks amazing – three weeks ago she gave birth and she looks probably better than she did before.”

He added, “I don’t know if it’s because of what she’s been eating or what, she looks really, really great.”

Kate & Kim Baby Weight Loss Watch: Too Much Pressure?

It was the tale of two ridiculously famous pregnancies – the most-watched Mum Tums in recent times. Reality superstar Kim Kardashian, 32 and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, 31, gave birth to their much anticipated offspring a little over a month apart.

First came little North West on June 15, 2013, Kim’s daughter with rap star Kanye West, 36 and then came His Royal Highness, Prince George [Alexander Louis] of Cambridge on July 22, 2013, Kate’s son with Prince William, 31.

Then came the flurry of excitement to clock eyes on Kim and Kate’s offspring.

Whilst Kim and baby North went uncharacteristically ‘underground’, Kate, Wills and baby George made their very public appearance on the steps outside the Lindo Wing at London’s St. Mary’s Hopsital, one day after giving birth.

Kim and Kate’s pregnancies came under very different scrutiny.

katemiddletonbabyweight

Kate, who was lauded with having the perfect baby ‘bump’ and only looking pregnant ‘from the front’, apparently achieved this by hitting the gym, running, swimming and Pilates whilst pregnant.

Meanwhile Kim was ridiculed for piling on the pounds, which could really just be attributed to dubious fashion choices, shocking shoe choice and more than one unflattering angle.

Kim hid for two months, working hard to silence her body-critics whilst Kate had no qualms about showing her still round, post-baby bump to the world.

According to Vanity Fair, Kate’s hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker was responsible for bringing the pale blue spotted Jenny Packham dress to the hospital, one of a selection of dresses for the Duchess. There was no point trying to hide her bump, so Kate chose a flattering dress that worked with her curves.

Kim unveiled her post-baby body when she took newborn North to a LA Medical Centre clad in a loose shirt. Hints that her body was getting back to its old self appeared when Kim attended the funeral of Kanye West’s grandfather and more recently when she stepped out with her newly blonde locks and skinny jeans on September 4.

Kim is thought to have dropped 20 kgs with healthy eating and a strict exercise regime. She reportedly has another 5-7 kgs to go to hit her goal weight.

Kim works out six days a week – three days in the gym with trainer Gunnar Peterson and the other three days with fitness guru Tracy Anderson, working on cardio and Pilates.

Anderson, who has also trained celebrity mums Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow, has weighed into the debate over public obsession with celebs ditching baby weight.

“It’s insane,” Anderson told Newsday.com on Tuesday night at US Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers event at Harlow in Manhattan. “I don’t think the public is even fascinated with it. I think they know it’s not real. It’s the most evil trick that women play on women.”

“There’s something really wrong with us trying to manipulate people into thinking celebrities have some secret that other women don’t have,” Anderson added. “Or there’s some superhuman unnatrual force that they were given that they just bounce back.”

Anderson revealed her goal with Kim was to make her ‘healthy and as in proportions as she should naturally be.’

“Kim is taking as much time as she wants to just be with the baby,” Anderson said. “She’s not even concerned with working out. Kim is amazing as a mom, she’s so connected. I knew when I was training her she would be a great mom. She was concerned with all the right things.”

Kate Middleton was back into her pre-pregnancy skinny jeans just six weeks after giving birth. Kate appeared unexpectedly alongside Prince William at the Ring O’Fire Ultra Marathon in Anglesey.

Last week, Kate returned to the red carpet in sparkling fashion at the Tusk Conservation Awards in London. Wearing a silver, sequinned floor-length gown by Jenny Packham and silver Jimmy Choo stilettos, there was little evidence of giving birth to a prince a mere seven weeks before.

Singer-turned-designer Jessica Simpson can sympathise with Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton over the relentless attention dropping celebrity baby weight.

Jessica, 33, was ridiculed for her weight gain with first child Maxwell, 15 months and has worked hard since having her second boy, Ace Knute on June 30.

“I am definitely one of those pregnant women who just gains a lot of weight,” Simpson told Us Weekly. “I have really big boobs, I have my curves and I just gain weight. I can’t help it.”

“It’s been six weeks since I’ve had my baby now and I feel great,” she added. “It’s OK to gain weight and it will always come off.”

Jessica also weighed in on both Kim and Kate’s post-baby bodies.

“I felt for Kim – I knew exactly what she was going through,” said Simpson. “I send a lot of love her way, and I know she’ll come back with a bang.”

“Kate Middleton was glowing throughout her pregnancy,” she added. “A lot of pregnant mums were looking at her like, ‘How do you do that?’”

Indeed!

What do you think about the pressure for celebrity mums to lose the baby weight?

Pregnant and Glamorous

Boasting a bodacious baby bump never gets in the way of an A-List yummy-mummy-to-be on the red carpet – especially if she has a new flick to promote. From Kate to Halle, we look at the best celebrity maternity style.

Kate Winslet debuted her bump at her new movie, Labor Day premiere at Toronto’s International Film Festival on Saturday, September 7.

Kate, 37, announced her exciting news six months after marrying husband number 3, Ned Rocknroll in secret. A bouncing baby brother or sister for Kate’s two children, Mia, 12 and Joe, 9, with her ex-husbands, filmmaker Jim Threapleton and director Sam Mendes, respectively.

Kate told reporters at the festival she has been taking care of her body and watching her weight the third time around.

katewinsletpregnant

“I’ve been really good this pregnancy, partly because I was working in the beginning until about 20 weeks. I couldn’t have it all go to my face. I don’t know how much I can be bothered to have to lose the weight. It’s such a pain in the ass. I’m not one of those people for whom it magically drops off.”

And it seems Halle Berry, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Rachel Zoe and Holly Valance aren’t prepared to swap heels, make-up, sleek blow-dries and their signature style for oversize t-shirts, leggings and Ugg boots – just yet either.

hallepregnant

Halle Berry, 47, who is expecting her second child and first with partner Olivier Martinez, is always glam and she hasn’t let a little baby bump get in her way in the name of style. Halle, who has a 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, with her ex, model Gabriel Aubry, certainly over-achieves on the ridiculously good looking family meter.

jenniferlovehewittpregnant

A skintight LBD in the third trimester could be one woman’s nightmare but actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, 34, has been rocking them on more than one occasion. She is expecting her first child any day with fiancé (and The Client List co-star), actor Brian Hallisay.

hollyvallance

Australian actress Holly Valance, 30, who is expecting her first child with billionaire husband Nick Candy, didn’t let that get in the way of wearing Italian Riviera-worthy garb on a recent holiday.

rachelzoepregnant

On the fashion front, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, 42, is expecting her second child with husband Rodger Berman whilst rock-star-cum-designer Gwen Stefani, 43, is rumoured to be expecting her third child with husband Gavin Rossdale. We can expect to see anything but maternity wear from those two.

Fergie Gives Birth To A Son!

Fergie and Josh Duhamel have welcomed their first child – a baby boy named Axl Jack Duhamel!

Axl was delivered by C-section in an L.A. hospital early Thursday Pacific time and weighed in at 7 lbs., 10 oz.

Duhamel, 40, was by his wife Fergie’s side, and was reportedly calm and chatting with staff throughout the day.

Fergie, 38, recently celebrated not one but two baby showers in L.A. with friends.

The new parents knew their baby’s sex but kept it under wraps until Duhamel gave it away on morning TV show LIVE with Kelly and Michael, picking out a blue onesie.

In April the Black Eyed Peas singer revealed that Duhamel wanted to start a family after the first date. “He’s going to be an amazing father. He’s got natural parenting instincts,” she said. The pair started dating in 2004 and married in 2009.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

See North West’s First Photo!

It’s the photo we’ve all been waiting for! The first photo of North West, Kim and Kanye’s two-month-old baby daughter – and she’s a real cutie.

Kim’s mum Kris Jenner tweeted the adorable pic of North with the caption “Meet North West” – and in true Kardashian style included the hashtag #WatchKris to promote her talk show Kris.

The photo comes a day after Kris interviewed Kanye on the season finale of her talk show where he opened up about his love for Kim, calling her his “joy.”

“You know, my grandfather just passed, and his whole thing was never about money, it was never about popularity. His whole thing was joy, having joy in his life. And she’s [Kim] my joy and she brought my new joy into the world. And there’s no paparazzi and there’s no blog comment and there’s nothing that’s gonna take that joy from me.”

“I could have people saying, ‘This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or as a designer, and I say, ‘I don’t care. I love this woman,'” he revealed. “Or someone could say, ‘the paparazzi surround you… Everyone knows you don’t like paparazzi. Why would you be with this person?’

“And I would say, ‘I’m being with this person because I love this person and she’s worth it to me.'”

“I pray she looks like her mother when she’s older,” Kanye also told Kris – and judging by this first photo of North, she looks to have both her parent’s features.

Who do you think North West look more like – Kim or Kanye?

Simon Cowell Is Going To Be A Dad

Simon Cowell is going to be a dad!

The 53-year-old X Factor judge and notorious bachelor is expecting his first child with New York socialist Lauren Silverman, 36.

And, wait for it…Silverman is still married to real estate mogul Andrew Silverman, a close friend of Cowell’s.

Cowell, 53, has often spoke out about his lack of interest in having a children.

“God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts,” he said in 2009. “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.”

But last year he seemed to be warming to the idea.

“I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them,” he told AOL Music. “The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids and I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”

Cowell was previously engaged to American Idol makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy, but they called off their 18-month engagement in September, 2011. Most recently he dated Carmen Electra for a few months but they split in February 2013.

What kind of dad do you think Simon Cowell will be?

It’s A Boy For Evan Rachel Wood And Jamie Bell

Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have welcomed a baby boy, their first child.

The actress delivered a “beautiful” son, her rep confirmed today. “Parents and baby are all doing well.”

Wood, 25, and Bell, 27, wed last October. They met in 2005 on the set of Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” music clip.

Wood is best known for her roles in Thirteen, The Wrestler and The Ides of March, and previously dated Marilyn Manson. Bell shot to fame at the age of 14 for his starring role in Billy Elliott.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Inside Fergie’s Baby Shower

Fergie has celebrated her baby shower in a star-studded party in L.A.

The singer, who is due in September, took over the SLS with friends – including Kelly Osbourne, Julianne Hough, Molly Sims, Ru Paul, Adam Lambert, Lance Bass and Halle Berry’s ex, Gabriel Aubrey – with Fergie welcoming guests by announcing “it’s my baby boy’s first party!”

Fashion Police’s George Kotsiopoulos tweeted this adorable photo with Fergie and co-star Osbourne, calling it the ‘best #GaybyShower ever!!!’

Hubbie Josh Duhamel was also in attendance, enjoying Ferg-aritas with guests and his wife’s own-label Ferguson Crest wine. Burlesque drag performers entertained guests, who also enjoyed a four-tied cake designed with the black, white and blue theme in mind, with one layer being decorated in baby blocks spelling out BABY, with a teddy bear on top.

Younger guests at the baby shower were entertained with teal and clear balloon animals, and everyone took home blue and white sweets.

Earlier this month, Duhamel, 40, announced he was preparing a push present for Fergie, 38 (real name Stacey Ann Ferguson), around the time that she took his last name, legally changing her name. The couple married in 2009.

Duhamel is excited at being a hands-on dad, saying they’ll make their schedules work to make sure they’re around for their little boy.

“I can’t imagine having a kid and then not being able to be there – that would just drive me crazy. My head would be at home with mom and baby,”he explained.

“We want to work it out so that we can be together; whether I am working, they can come with [me] or if she is working I can go with them. I can’t see myself ever wanting to be away from my wife and kid.”

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem Welcome Baby Girl!

Seems like Monday 22 July will go down as a big day for celebrity baby birthdays!

On the same day as Kate and William welcomed their first child in London, Penelope Cruz, 39, gave birth to a baby girl in Madrid, her second child with husband Javier Bardem, 44.

Their baby daughter joins big brother Leonardo, two.

The couple were enjoying a musical festival in Madrid on Saturday, with Cruz looking looking very pregnant, and no wonder, she was reportedly due in June.

The actress has often spoke about keeping her family out of the spotlight. “I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible,” she said.

Congratulations to Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem!

Kim And Kanye’s Daughter’s Name Revealed!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly named their baby daughter North West.

Despite denying rumours that they would name their child North earlier this year, reports say the birth certificate has North listed as the name.

“I like the name Easton, Easton West,” Kardashian joked on the Jay Leno show in March.

Speculation from the Kardashian clan this week suggested the baby’s name would follow suit and start with a K.

The couple have already given her a nickname, calling the one-week-old Nori for short.

The reality star is still in hospital after last Saturday’s birth, giving no indication why – possibly due to North’s early delivery by three weeks. West has not left her side.

There’s been plenty of commentary on the name on Twitter – here are some of the best lines:

‘Her siblings “South”, “Wild Wild” and “Mae” are coming soon…’

‘Somewhere Blue Ivy is thinking, “My name isn’t as bad now, is it”‘

‘oh good when kim and kanye’s daughter has her own fragrance it’ll be called “north, by north west”’

What do you think of the decision to call the baby North West?
