On Saturday, January 5, Deena Nicole Cortese gave birth to her first child, Christopher John "CJ" Buckner.
The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star is thrilled, and has shared plenty of photos with fans.
Those sweet baby photos are why it took only three days for Deena to get aggressively mom-shamed.
Christopher John “CJ” Buckner is an adorable little baby.
He's not even a week old but he has plenty of admirers, thanks to the plentiful photos that Deena has shared.
Unfortunately, these very same pics are being used as "evidence" by Deena's own fans and followers that Deena is endangering him.
It all started when Deena announced that she was leaving the hospital.
"Going home," she shared on Instagram, along with glimpses of her little baby ready for his first car ride.
See for yourself:
This ... does not look like a child on the brink of death.
But fans saw how he was dressed in his little car seat for the ride home, and were convinced that he was in mortal peril.
Seriously -- and they let her hear it in the comments.
If you've ever been mom-shamed or seen mom-shaming going down, you know that most people's words are gentle, but come across as scolding.
"The baby doesn’t fit in his car seat with that fleece snowsuit and the harness is waaaay too loose," one commenter warned.
That same fan continued: "Sorry I don’t want people’s babies to die"
"That’s not a f--king onesie," accused another. "Lmao."
Another wrote: "Some of us here are trying to help her and offer LIFE SAVING ADVICE."
The criticism became so bad that, on Tuesday, Deena responded.
"It’s not a jacket," Deena explained with remarkable patience.
"It’s a onesie," she affirmed. "And hospital approved it."
A degree of concern is understandable, but after the fact, it makes sense to give someone the benefit of the doubt, right?
The lesson Deena's likely to take from this is that creatively designed onesies are going to set off mom-shamers.
Or, worse, she might just narrow her baby photo-sharing down to a trickle.
"We’re not perfect," Deena acknwoledges.
"But," she insists. "We got this."
Most first-time mothers take time to listen to advice from doctors, parenting experts, and relatives.
She's not going to just yeet her baby into the backseat and drive home.
She and her husband are taking every step to do things the right way.
But Deena graciously concludes: "thank you for the concerns."
Deena cannot stop gushing about baby CJ on Instagram and it's so sweet.
"Ugh I just can't," she begins one heartwarming post as she stares at her firstborn.
Deena admits that she is "still getting into the swing of things."
"Being first time parents isn’t easy," she acknowledges. "But it’s so friggen worth it."
"We’re so obsessed with this little man!" she notes. "And today I realized he has my feet."
Deena explained her meaning: "he has little “sandal toes” like mommy"
Having CJ has really made her family feel whole, she expressed.
On Saturday, the day she gave birth, she took to social media to gush about the experience.
"I never thought i could love Chris anymore than i did," she confessed.
"Until i saw him hold CJ," she concluded.
That is so sweet!
We're glad that things are going better for Deena than they have been for a certain other Jersey Shore star who recently had a kid.
Gym, tan, laundry?
For Deena Nicole Cortese now, it will be feed, burp, change.
That’s because the Jersey Shore star has given birth to her very first child! Ever!
The blessed development took place on Saturday, January 5, as Denna welcomed a baby boy alongside husband Chris Buckner.
This is what she wrote on Facebook as confirmation:
Our Little Man has finally arrived.
Christopher John Buckner (CJ) born January 5th at 4:41 pm at a whopping 20.5 inches..6 Lb 8.5 ounces. Uhg mommy and daddy love you so much CJ .. you’re our everything
As you can see above and below, Cortese provided followers with many precious photos of young CJ as well.
“I never thought i could love Chris anymore than i did until i saw him hold CJ,” added Deena as a nod to both her husband and her son on Instagram.
The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cast member exchanged vows with in October of 2017 when the two got married at a winery in New Jersey.
She announced her pregnancy in July.
“Chris and I Decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans!” she wrote at the time, adding:
“Now that we are safely into our second trimester.. us and our little monkey are ready to tell the world Our little family is growing!
“We have a sweet little boy on the way! We Are truly blessed and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness. December can’t come soon enough!
“Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John you are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!!!!”
Deena previously told Us Weekly that she’d be “fine” with two kids, but that she would have a trio in her ideal universe.
Elsewhere on Jersey Shore:
– Snooki has a six-year old son and four-year old daughter. And she’s pregnant with her third.
– JWOWW has a four-year old daughter and two-year old son.
– Paulu “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio has a daughter Amabella, 5, with ex Amanda Markert.
– And Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and on-off-on-off girlfriend Jen Harley are the parents of daughter Ariana, 8 months. (More on these two stars below.)
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation was recently picked up for Season 3.
We send our very best wishes to Deena Nicole Cortese and her brand new family!
He has a name, folks.
And quite the adorable little face.
About a day after Javi Marroquin welcomed his second son into the world, the former Teen Mom 2 star has shared two critical pieces of information about the tyke:
1. His name.
2. His photo.
Upon first announcing the birth of his second child (Javi also has a five-year old son named Lincoln with Kailyn Lowry), Marroquin said he and girlfriend Lauren Comeau had not yet come up with a name for the newborn.
But that has now changed.
Along with the totally adorable snapshot below, Javi wrote the following caption on Instagram last night.
Take note of the first word in it...
Eli Joseph Marroquin, I didn’t know I could love another human as much as I do your brother.
My heart only got bigger yesterday and now I have another little boy to help guide and mold to become a gentleman! I love you Eli so much!
How very sweet, right?
Comeau, meanwhile, shared this same photo (along with the others below) and wrote her own caption that address her first kid.
It reads as follows:
And just like that, my heart is completely full. Nothing will ever top this moment, a moment I’ve prayed for, for a very long time. I love you E.
And thank you my love for supporting me through the craziest two days of my life.
Comeau and Marroquin dated for several weeks last summer and then rekindled their romantic flame late this past winter.
(While Javi was still dating Briana DeJesus, some people named Briana DeJesus might say.)
They announced they were expecting on May 30 and then revealed they were expecting a boy a couple months later.
Lauren was due on December 1, but had her labor induced on November 15.
In a chat with Radar Online, Comeau admitted that induction was a tad scary, but "it's been incredible" overall to be a mother so far, adding:
"I was nervous about having to start from zero at the hospital, but we had a really great experience...
"His first overnight was amazing. We all three slept in between nurse visits. He's latching great. He's a happy, healthy boy!"
Marroquin also shared the above image of Eli asleep in his daddy's arms.
Life doesn't get much better than this.
In the wake of Javi become a dad again, Lowry Tweeted "congrats," while DeJesus figured out some math in regard to when Comeau gave birth and when she split from Marroquin and basically accused him of cheating on social media.
But Javi doesn't seem too concerned about that right now.
He has something far more important to focus on.
For the next few minutes, months and many years.
"I shed some tears," Marroquin told Radar of his reaction when Eli was born.
"For those that don't know, I'm not an emotional person anymore at all and just seeing my son come out really had me in my feeling."
Well, yeah. Of course man! You're only human.
In conclusion, the couple explained how they chose their little one’s name on Friday:
“Joseph after my dad, who goes by Joe, and my grandfather’s middle name,” Comeau told Radar, adding:
"We’ve been set on the middle name for months, but the first name has rotated like every month or so.
"I really wanted to name him something that could be shortened to a nickname, but we love Eli by itself."
The woman who many consider to be the world's most perfect looking human just gave birth to an absolute perfect baby.
Indeed, congratulations are in order for Kate Upton:
The supermodel just gave birth to her very first child!
The 26-year old shared the blessed news on Saturday evening, alerting Instagram followers to the name and the gender of her and husband Justin Verlander's precious offspring.
We'll let Upton take it from here...
“Genevieve Upton Verlander. 11.7.18,” Kate simply wrote, confirming that the newborn came into official existence this past Wednesday.
She included with this message a gorgeous black-and-white snapshot of little Genevieve...
... and here it is!
Well done, Kate and Justin.
Verlander, who works as one of the best starting pitchers in all of Major League Baseball, posted a photo of the couple holding their little one’s hand.
He wrote as a caption:
“Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my [heart] the first second I met you!!! 11.7.2018.”
Verlander also penned a sweet message to Upton after the couple confirmed her pregnancy in July.
“You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!! I can’t wait to start this new journey with you!” he gushed on Instagram at the time, adding:
“You’re the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I’ve ever met! I’m so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much."
Upton and Verlander got married the knot in Tuscany, Italy, in November of 2017, mere days after the pitcher and the Houston Astros won the 2017 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
During the baseball season that recently concluded, Verlander credited Upton for turning both his career and his life around.
Speaking to Bleacher Report about his outlook after going through multiple injuries, Verlander said the following a few months ago:
“Who knows if I’m even here if it wasn’t for her?
"I really thought it was the end. … She was instrumental in me not … like, jumping off a bridge."
And now she's also been also rather instrumental in Verlander becoming a dad.
We send these two our very best wishes.
She's here, folks!
The 47-year old Real Housewives of Atlanta alum gave birth to a baby girl named Brooklyn Doris Daly at 9:39 a.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 4, People Magazine has confirmed.
The precious little daughter weighs 5 lbs. and 12 oz.
This is the first child for both Moore and her husband, Marc Daly.
What inspired this unique name?
“Brooklyn because that’s where we met and fell in love, and Doris after my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me,” Moore told People of the monkier's basis and significance.
Kenya announced the exciting news of her pregnancy on stage at The Real Housewives reunion back in April.
"We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year,” Moore said in response to a question from host Andy Cohen, adding at the time:
“Oh my God, I said that! I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m still very nervous about everything so I want to get past a safe place."
At 47 years old, Moore suffered a few complications related to her age.
(She is not old by regular standards, but she was considered a "geriatric" mother-to-be within the medical community.)
According to People, the former Miss USA - who conceived through in vitro fertilizatio - gave birth via emergency cesarean section after revealing on October 27 that she had tested positive for preeclampsia.
This is a complication that caused her to gain 17 pounds in just a week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine.
"This is NOT normal!" wrote Moore on Instagram along with a photo of her swollen feet that day, adding:
"I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day.
"Staying positive. To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors."
On Saturday, meanwhile, Moore let fans on Instagram know that her daughter was on the way.
She wrote on Instagram:
“If you want to make God laugh have a plan… Won’t be long now. Pray for us #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers.”
Moore and Daly, who met through a mutual friend started dating in December of 2016 and got married in St. Lucia in June of last year.
We both want to start a family, and soon - like, right away. We both want a child," she said at the time.
Sadly, Bravo viewers will not get to see Moore's pregnancy play out on television.
She has already said she will NOT appear on Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“Words cannot express the joy and happiness I feel in my heart,” Kenya wrote on Instagram in response to her baby shower last month, concluding:
“So overwhelming to have a room of people who came to celebrate the impending life of #babydaly."
We send our very best wishes and our hearty congratulations to Moore and Daly.
Hilary Duff had a baby and it’s super cute. Which is good, you don’t want minor celebrities to have ugly babies. But Duff’s baby is adorable and makes your baby look like a jerk. I’m not trying to be mean here, it’s just the truth.
It’s not really a surprise, the Lizzie McGuire star we all had a crush at one point if we’re being honest with ourselves has been posting pregnancy selfies to Instagram for what seems like at least eight months now.

I will post other colors soon and more details soon! #HilaryXlittlemoonsociety
I feel like boxing is maybe not the best activity for pregnant women but I guess it beats working out on the falling-down-the-stairs-master.

The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to day dream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on..sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment. Women are so bad ass, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!
Duff and her partner Matthew Koma named their daughter Banks Violet Bair, which is probably better than something like North Duff, that wouldn’t make any sense. Me, I’d have talked her into Surly Duff. Because 20 year old Simpsons references make the best baby names.
Now, Cardi is setting a different tone with her very first photo of her baby, Kulture.
This pic is too precious for words, folks.
Cardi B is a new mom, but she's been playing it safe, avoiding plastering her precious baby's face all over social media before the amniotic fluid is even cleaned off.
She's still shared photos, but she's been avoiding letting fans see baby Kulture directly. A stroller is not a baby photo, folks.
Over Labor Day Weekend, however, Cardi changed her tune a little, sharing a picture of her baby.
Cardi captioned the photo: "I needed a girl like you."
Here is the picture.
Obviously, Cardi is still avoiding showing Kulture's face. A lot of celebrity parents make this choice to protect the privacy of their children.
Some consider it futile or even an insult to fans, but others applaud the decision. The parents chose to be celebrities -- their children did not. Kulture is literally still a baby.
But this photo that Cardi shared on Sunday shows something more important than her baby's face -- it shows the developing love and bond between daughter and 25-year-old mother.
Kulture's hands are so little compared to her mother's -- and Cardi is a small woman.
It really drives home how tiny Kulture is. Right now, Cardi is her whole world.
In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Cardi also gave fans a glimpse of her breastfeeding Kulture -- but, again, she did not give fans a real look at her baby.
"No sleep after the studio unless Kulture say soo," Cardi captioned the post.
The new mom is much less reserved about showing off her own body -- before, during, and after her pregnancy.
That makes sense, because it's her body.
She can strip down into lingerie or less if she wants.
Unfortunately, though Cardi loves her career and her baby and her husband, Offset, not everything is perfect.
Last week, it came out that Cardi allegedly ordered a Cardi-beatdown of two women, one of whom she has reportedly spent months accusing of having banged Offset.
The two women are bartenders at a strip club. They are also sisters.
One of the women was allegedly assaulted earlier last month by people she identified as associates of Cardi's.
Then, last week, she and her sister were allegedly attacked by members of Cardi's entourage, who were said to have thrown seats and bottles at the sisters.
The matter was reportedly taken to the police, so we of course hope that justice will be done.
No one should be physically assaulted. Not with fists and elbows, and not with bottles and chairs.
If there really was an attack, perhaps the strip club has security footage as evidence to identify the culprits -- who could share why they did it.
Hopefully, it was not on Cardi's orders.
And, as some pointed out, if Cardi thinks that Offset has been banging other beauties, she should really take that up with him, not with women she doesn't really know.
Kylie Jenner is about to turn 21 years old.
But instead of celebrating the occasion with a glass of champagne, because she'll be legally permitted to drink tomorrow, the reality star is celebrating in far more low key fashion*:
Via a photo shoot with her precious daughter, Stormi.
(*Okay, this is not entirely true. According to Radar Online, Kylie is actually spending $1 million to throw herself a total of five parties over this coming weekend; two at clubs and three at private residences.)
Jenner took to Instagram on Thursday and posted two gorgeous portraits of herself and her first-born.
There's really no other way to describe these images.
No matter what you think of Jenner, the snapshots are gorgeous.
"bringing in my birthday tonight with my most special gift. What was life before you, Stormi. I love you my little angel," wrote Jenner as a caption to the first picture, adding simply alongside the second:
Those who follow Jenner on Instagram (all 112-million plus million of you) were likely surprised by these posts, considering Kylie has been sharing fewer and fewer pictures these days of her child.
The same can be said of Stormi's dad, Travis Scott, as well.
Insiders have said that the couple is making an effort to shield Stormi from the spotlight, at least over the first few weeks, months and years of her life.
“Kylie felt so protective of her baby when she was pregnant. This is why she didn’t share any bump pictures while she was pregnant,” a source said in June, during the height of Jenner's hiatus from over-sharing.
In early July, however, Kylie ended this self-imposed baby ban and started sharing fresh looks at Stormi with fans once again.
Explains the same insider cited above, telling People Magazine why there was an influx of Stormi pictures and then a break in between the latest set:
“After Stormi was born, Kylie was the proudest mom. She couldn’t wait to show off Stormi to her fans. She posted pictures because she was so excited to be a mom.
“Unfortunately, social media is a crazy place [and] people have been making nasty comments” about Jenner’s little girl.
If true, that really is inexcusable.
You may have whatever opinions you possess about Jenner and her sisters, but what kind of person hurls shade at an infant?
Thankfully, Kylie does not appear to be letting the trolls get her down.
She's remained mostly off the gossip grid ever since Stormi was born, content to relax at home and take advantage of this special time with her daughter.
However, if certain reports are true, then Jenner is about to be back in the news in a major way very soon.
After all, we hear Scott is gonna propose to Kylie on her 21st birthday!
EEEK! How exciting!
It's officially time for Joanna Gaines and Chip Gaines to go from fixing up houses to changing dirty diapers.
That's right, readers:
The beloved couple has welcomed its fifth child into its precious fold!
Without revealing the newborn's measuremeants, gender or name, Chip broke this very exciting piece of news via a Tweet early Saturday morning that reads as follows:
And then there were 5.. The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great!
The faithful reality star added the hashtah "#blessedBeyondBelief."
The new addition joins siblings Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13 in this large and close-knit family.
Chip and Joanna recently finished filming their final season of Fixer Upper, which has ranked as HGTV's top-rated program for years.
They announced that Season 5 would be the series' swan song prior to confirming Joanna's pregnancy, telling fans at the time that they simply needed a break.
And now we know why!
In early January, the twosome revealed that a fifth son or daughter was on the way, doing so in the sort of adorable manner that made them such a popular couple in the first place.
“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines,” Chip wrote as a caption to the following image, which features his wife cradling his pretend baby bump while she shows her actual baby bump under a grey sweater.
Classic Chip, right?!?
There were actually some online concerns a few days later after Joanna's ultrasound appeared to feature a complication for the fetus.
But it thankfully sounds now as if those worries were for naught and the baby is happy, healthy and... here!
At one point, Chip even joked about how his fifth kid came to be, sharing a hilarious tweet that spelled out exactly when he and Joanna had the sex that led to her expecting state.
“You might recall a few months back.. the ever amazing, ever romantic @JOHNNYSWIM was in Waco," he wrote awhile back, adding:
"And they put on a little too romantic of a concert.. anyways, one thing led to another, & we are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED! #5 #7ThePerfectNumber."
Once again: Classic Chip.
With no new season of Fixer Upper to film and with a baby at home, you probably won't hear from Chip and Joanna for a little bit.
But they're always sort of around and will likely be right back in the spotlight shortly.
Joanna has a new book out, after all, and the couple owns a restaurant and has its own Target line and pretty much has its foot in every conceivable aspect of the home design and renovation business.
We bet they end up starring in a new show at some point as well.
For now, though, it's all about that new mouth to feed.
Kylie Jenner shamed her baby daddy truthers, but it looks like she wasn't content to stop there. It looks like she's punishing all of her fans.
Take a look at this new photo of Kylie. She looks great sporting this natural look. But she puzzled fans when she cropped out her own daughter's face.
If you think that the picture is weird, you're right. But Kylie's explanation is even weirder.
Kylie looks great in this picture. Her low-makeup look really lets her freckles show. Natural looks are a rare thing for Kylie, and fans are always happy to see them.
She captioned the image: "I spy with my little eye..."
But ... though she definitely got compliments in the comments, fans were quick to notice that this is a very conspicuous pic.
It appears that she just ... cropped baby Stormi out of the image altogether.
There's a little bit of healthy vanity, which is usually fine, and then there's whatever would drive a mother to excluse her precious baby from what could be a sweet mother-daughter photo.
What's going on?
Fans were shocked and troubled by Kylie's unexplained edit.
"She cUT HER BABY OUT."
That comment reflects the shock and dismay that many fans experienced when they saw the photo.
"It's okay you can still see her eyebrow."
That comment, we imagine, was intended as sarcasm rather than comfort.
"It's not her baby, I don't think. It looks like North to me."
That ... is a bit of a reach. Especially since North is a good deal older than Stormi.
(In fact, North will turn five years old later this week, on June 15)
Kylie herself stepped in, writing:
"Yeah I cut my baby out. I'm not sharing photos of my girl right now."
Kylie's response was an explanation ... but leaves fans with even more questions.
But looking back, this is part of a pattern.
Kylie hasn't shared photos of Stormi in a while, and she's even deleted some adorable photos of Stormi from her Instagram page.
In fact, the last time that she offered an almost-clear photo of her baby (that has not since been deleted) was on April 19.
Why is Kylie suddenly so shy?
We may have a theory.
It has to do with this guy, Tim Chung.
Now, we know that Kylie's hot bodyguard is not Stormi's father.
Unfortunately, some of Kylie's followers latched onto the idea that he was secretly Stormi's dad.
They made a show of fixating on certain facial features of Stormi's (she's just a baby!!) and comparing them to both Travis Scott and Tim Chung, a police officer and part time model who is also Kylie's bodyguard.
But really, this "theory" that was barely even a rumor arose from two things:
One, fans were bored with Kylie's happily-ever-after narrative with the baby daddy she's only been seeing for about a year and her cute little baby.
Two, fans were thirsting hard after Chung. Just look at him. And they found it easy to imagine a gorgeous 19-year-old (at the time) Kylie spending some one-on-one time with her bodyguard.
But that, folks, is why fanfiction exists. When people project their wishes on celebrities publicly, things get awkward. And we no longer get cute Stormi giggling videos.
Those rumors really upset Kylie (and honestly could hurt Chung's career!!).
So ... Kylie's not letting the public see Stormi right now.
Is it because she just wants to avoid giving rumor-mongers any additional fodder to compare to anyone other than Travis Scott?
Or is it because she wants to punish people who make up stories about her life?
Either way, we kind of doubt that it will act as an effective deterrent. People just love juicy rumors.
And sometimes those rumors make a lot more sense than reality. That's what makes them so appealing to so many people.
In the mean time, though, fans can just enjoy photos of sweet baby Stormi here. Take a look:
Add another baby to the famous brood!
Joseph Duggar and Kendra Duggar have confirmed to their many fans across the globe that they are parents for the first time.
Hooray and congratulations to the young twosome!
According to Us Weekly, the couple welcomed a son named Garrett David on Friday, June 8, at 1:36 p.m.
The baby came into this world weighing 7 lbs. 8 oz. and measuring 20.5 inches in length. Not too shabby on both fronts.
The 11th grandchild for Jim Bob and Michelle, Garrett was also born about a week early.
Said the Duggar matriarch and patriarch in a statement:
"We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our newest grandbaby, Garrett David Duggar. Kendra and the baby are healthy and happy!
"Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes!"
“Kendra delivered yesterday without complications. Mom and baby are both doing great,” a representative for the reality show family told the aforementioned tabloid late on Saturday afternoon.
Joseph and Kendra were generous enough to share the above photo on their official website, adding in a separate of their own:
“No matter how many times we’ve experienced the joy of babies born in our families, there’s nothing comparable to the joy in our hearts today!
“Children truly are a gift from God. We are so thankful for his safe arrival and this new journey as parents."
The Duggars broke the news of their child's gender back in February, confirming that a boy was on the way.
"Wow! We are so happy to learn that our firstborn is a boy!” Joseph and Kendra said at the time, adding in excitement:
“Our minds are already racing toward all the future memories to be made with this little guy!
"Most of all, we are already asking God to bless him and help us grow him into a loving and faithful follower of Christ!"
The 22-year old new father and the 19-year old new mother met at church many years ago, when they were kids.
They got engaged at Joy-Anna Duggar's wedding in May of 2017 and got married in Arkansas in September of that same year.
Just two months later... BAM! They announced they were expecting.
"During this season that we are celebrating the birth of Christ, we are so excited to share with you that we are expecting the gift of a child ourselves!" the stars said in December of 2017.
"Wow, it’s so exciting!!!
"We’ve both always loved children and then seen them as a real blessing from God. It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one.
"We cannot wait to see this new baby!"
Even for the Duggars, this was a rather fast-moving development.
As members of this conservative family, Joseph and Kendra were not permitted to have sex (or anything close to sex) prior to their vow exchange, meaning they got down to business as soon as they got married...
... if you know what we mean!
Joseph and Kendra were actually accused of breaking the Duggar courtship rules last fall, an accusation they didn't feel a need to comment on.
But that's in the past anyway.
What's in the future? Lots of dirty diapers, sleepless nights and tears of joy!
We send our very best wishes to Joseph, Kendra and their adorable baby boy.
Oh, and for the record:
The next Duggar baby set to become a member of sociey will be born in Texas.
Jinger and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, are expected welcome their baby girl sometime in July.
We'll be sure to pass along all the photos and all the details once they become public.
Meghan King Edmonds is officially twinning at life.
About six months after revealing to the world that she and her husband Jim were expecting, the Real Housewives of Orange County alum has welcomed a pair of healthy and precious babies into the world.
The ex-Bravo star herself confirmed the exciting news on social media.
“Announcing our perfect, beautiful, and healthy twin baby boys!” Edmonds wrote as a caption alongside a black-and-white photo of the newborns lying on a baby blanket with a footprint theme.
Keeping the names a secret for now, she added:
“They arrived at 10:48 p.m. and 11:32 p.m. on June 5 weighing 6 pounds, 15 ounces, (20 inches long) and 6 pounds (19.25 inches long.)”
Sharing the same image, Edmonds - who hit .284 with 393 HRs and four Gold Gloves in 17 Major League Baseball seasons - added:
“Everyone is doing well. My wife was a rockstar once again and delivered both babies with no medication. #onetoughlady."
Prior to the release of this sweet snapshot, Jim teased the big news by sharing the photo below.
He wrote along with it:
“1 little foot each. They made it. Everyone is safe and healthy. Pictures will come soon.”
The semi-famous couple is also parents to 18-month-old daughter Aspen, whom they welcomed in November 2016, while the retired pro athlete also has four kids from a previous marriage.
Back in December, Jim and Meghan announced they were expanding their family via a family photo that included such signs as:
“Our family is growing by four feet and two heartbeats” and “Edmonds twin boys June 2018.”
Edmonds, meanwhile, ended her run on The Real Housewives back in January, not long after alerting the universe to her pregnancy.
There remains a few questions over whether she quit or whether she was fired, but this is what she wrote on her blog at the time:
"Today is a bittersweet day for me. After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County I’ve decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat."
She went on to add:
"I arrived at this multi-faceted decision after much thought, and then I thought some more.
"As you might suspect filming this show takes a massive emotional toll: I’m literally filming my real life in real time and engaged in situations and circumstances which can be contentious.
"Then, when the show airs, we relive some of the most trying moments in our lives and then endure the public’s reaction; we never come out as winners to every viewer."
Overall, Edmonds explained, "filming is grueling."
Concluded Edmonds (who, yes, actually channeled Beyonce for a pregnancy shoot, as you can see above) in this emotional message:
"I must focus on my family and my pregnancy. I will miss the rush of the first all-cast event of the season, the anticipation of receiving each week’s episode, the thrill of wrapping the reunion.
"I have made soul sisters in Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge and that can’t be lost.
"They have touched my heart and I would do anything for them and I know they feel the same way about me – what a gift to have found that on RHOC!
"But I guess it’s time for me to become an actual real housewife of sorts. Oh, the irony!"
The happiest couple in Hollywood now has another reason to smile.
An adorable, precious, totally amazing and perfect reason to smile, we should emphasize:
They are the excited parents of a new baby boy!
We don't have many details on this (very) young man just yet, merely an enthusiastic and revealing Tweet from Teigen.
(Who, it's worth noting, may be the best celebrity follow on social media.)
“Somebody’s herrrrrrre!” Chrissy wrote, along with baby bottle and high five smiley emojis.
What, was she too busy, too in pain or just too thankful to include some personal information about this child at the same time?!? Sheesh.
(Just kidding, Chrissy. No rush. We just love you and we're curious to learn all we can about your bundle of miraculous joy.)
Legend retweeted the post and Brielle Biermann (randomly) was among the first to congratulate the couple, replying:
“OMFGGGG!!!!!! Taurus baby!! Congratulations.”
The 32-year old Lip Sync Battle co-host and the very talented musician are parents to a girl named Luna. She helped them announced that a second child was on the way in November.
In a sweet Instagram video, Teigen asks the infant, “Luna, what’s in here?” as she points to her belly, to which Luna squealed:
Teigen humously, and informatively, captioned the clip: “it’s john’s!"
Chrissy was feted at a baby shower just a few weeks ago, which made headlines because it was held just days after Legend beefed with Kanye West over the rapper's support for Donald Trump.
Kanye and his famous wife, Kim Kardashian, were in attendance, which prompted West and Legend to pose for a selfie at the gathering.
They said via caption that they had agreed to disagree on the matter.
But back to the brand new mother: She's hilarious.
In the days leading up to giving birth, Teigen made it awfully clear that she was ready to do so.
“Happy pregnant Chrissy is gone. meet OVER IT Chrissy,” she tweeted on Wednesday night. “Wanna hold my boy let’s do thisssssss."
A fan then said that it seemed as though Teigen had been pregnant for “three years,” and the cookbook author totally agreed. And then some.
“It feels worse for me because with IVF you know *so* early,” she wrote. “I mean I knew I was pregnant at 11 days in. Crazy."
Chrissy has become known for her honesty and humor, having shared photos of her stretch marks in the past and once joking that Legend could no longer do her doggy style because she didn't want him looking at her butt hole.
But she also got seriously candid at one point after welcoming Luna.
"I'll just say it: I have post partum depression," she wrote last March, adding in an interview with Glamour:
"I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me. One thing that really got me was just how short I was with people... There was a lot of spontaneous crying."
Concluded Teigen at this time:
I know I might sound like a whiny, entitled girl.
Plenty of people around the world in my situation have no help, no family, no access to medical care. I can't imagine not being able to go to the doctors that I need...
I look around every day and I don't know how people do it.
I've never had more respect for mothers, especially mothers with postpartum depression.
Here's to hoping Teigen has a more positive reaction to motherhood this time around.
Congrats to her and John!
Go ahead and say whatever you want about Tristan Thompson.
The guy most certainly deserves it.
But he also deserves credit for doing at least one thing right: he has created an extremely cute little girl with Khloe Kardashian.
After doing so, Thompson cheated on Khloe all over the country, of course.
But the long-time reality star has celebrated her daughter's one-month birthday by sharing the first legitimate and clear picture of baby True…
… and she is such a cutie pie.
Don't just take our word for it, however.
Meet Khloe's baby girl below!

Simply put, photographs may not get any more adorable than this.
On Saturday afternoon, Prince William and Kate Middleton surprised their many millions of fans by sharing two new photos of their precious new bundle of joy.
In the first image, Prince Louis is being cradled and kissed by big sister Charlotte and the resulting image is nearly too cute to handle:
Little Louis, of course, came into the world on April 23.
Following months of excitement and even speculation that Middleton was pregnant with twins, the Royal Couple announced on a Monday morning that Charlotte and Prince George now have a brother.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101 hrs,” read the official Kensington Palace statement at the time.
It then added two key pieces of information:
“The baby weighs 8 lbs 7 oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.”
Louis was born in Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London - where the couple’s other kids were also born - and is dressed in all white for his pair of new photos.
In the one below, Louis is on his own, giving social media users their first true and clear glimpse and his angelic face:
This second photo was reportedly snapped on April 26, when Louis was just three days old.
(And on which Charlotte turned three years old.)
In the past, William and Kate waited about a month before dropping similar professional pictures on the world of their children.
“Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank members of the public for all of the kind messages they have received following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday,” Kensington Palace announced this week.
Back in early June of 2015, Kate and William unveiled this snapshot of George and Charlotte in a similar pose.
Seriously, do these two know how to make beautiful babies or what?!?
In a brief statement to the media shortly after his second son was born, William said Louis is sleeping about as strongly as one could expect and that his mother was doing pretty "well."
We're so very glad to hear it.
Along other Royal lines, we recently learned that Pippa Middleton is also pregnant; while Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle on Saturday, May 19.
It is unlikely that we will see Prince Louis in public until his christening, however.
Kensington Palace has confirmed that the newborn royal will not be attending the royal wedding.”
Still: Wow, huh?
Talk about crazy and exciting times for all involved.
We wish the very, VERY best to Kate, William and their three kids.
"I don’t know how I’m going to cope with three. I’m going to be permanently tired," William has said prior to Louis' birth, echoing the sentiments of nearly every parent out there.
But if anyone can do it, we think he and Kate can pull this off.
And if they ever need babysitting help... hey, we're just a phone call away!
As you've likely heard by now, Kate Middleton welcomed her third child this morning.
The newest member of the royal family already made his big media debut, but thus far, Kate and Will have kept mum with regard to his royal moniker.
But that's not stopping the UK's most problematic gamblers from betting their paychecks on the little lads name!
Most of the wagering took place before today's delivery, but don't worry - it's not too late for you to get in on the ridiculous action!

From Apple to North to Spurgeon and many, many others compiled here, celebrities sure pick out some hilarious names for their kids.
Not all of them, obvi. Some go the conventional route.
But this is Hollywood, and well, we have no shortage of options while putting together a gallery of unintentional hilariousness like this.
Let's just say that.
There sure as heck are a disproportionate percentage of little kid names that are straight up ridic, head-scratching, LOL-worthy selections.
Check out the 35 most absurd ones given by the most absurd people now and be glad they make enough money to afford good therapists:
1. North West
3. Kal-El Cage
5. Rocket Zot (or Ayer)
6. Reign Aston Disick
At last, Chicago West is here.
Really, legitimately, 100% clearly here.
In mid-January, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogacy.
Due to health problems that complicated her first two pregnancies, Kim was advised by doctors not to even try to give birth to another boy or a girl.
As a result, she and her husband hired a woman to carry their child to term.
We didn’t get a look at the baby girl they named Chicago (for real; they named the baby girl Chicago) until Kylie Jenner released a video of her pregnancy journey shortly after she became a mother.
Mixed in with many scenes and snapshots of her and her family, Kylie included two glimpses at Chicago West.
You can click on the above link to view them for yourself.
Now, however, Kardashian herself has presented the world with its very first, official straight-on and straight-up precious picture of baby number-three…
… and here it is!
In the adorable image, the 37-year old reality TV star is donning a white robe as she cradles her daughter, who is also dressed in white.
They’re each rocking teddy bear ears and noses, thanks to a filter on Snapchat.
“Baby Chicago,” Kim simply captioned the photograph.
That does say it all, doesn’t it?
To Kim and Kanye’s credit (kredit?), neither superstar has said much about little Chicago since she came into their world.
For all the criticism you can justifiably hurl their way, you can’t really say the couple ever flaunt its kids in public or exploits them in any way.
Just think: how much have you really seen of North and Saint over the years?
The only problem for Kimye with this admirable strategy of keeping their offspring out of the spotlight and away from the press… is that this same press is going to generate its own headlines for the sake of clicks and pageviews.
It’s a shame that’s how the world works, but that is how a lot of the world works.
For example: there’s already been talk that Kim is neglecting Chicago.
And also talk that Kim doesn’t ever want Chicago to know that she was born via surrogate.
Over the weekend, meanwhile, the former sex tape star offered an update on her daughter to a commenter on Twitter.
Kim revealed that Chicago is “the sweetest,” and added that “She looks a little bit like North and a tiny bit like Saint,” but is “definitely her own person!”
As for how Twitter is reacting to this amazing photo of Chicago?
Let’s just say everyone is pretty darn excited.
“She really looks like you,” wrote one fan, while another agreed that mother and daughter have the “same ears.”
Some woman named Susan was even more psyched, however, Tweeting:
“So beautiful. God bless her! This Halloween, all she needs is a HALO. Congratulations, and Saint: Mama needs one more to even the score! Stay strong, L’il Man! Your sisters will be the best friends you ever have!”
Here’s a rundown of some other social media reactions:
Yup, Kristen Bell’s face there sums it up.
So does the fact that Kim’s photo has been Liked, as of this writing, 3.7 million times in just over three hours.
That is nearly as insane as Chicago is adorable.
Nine months of secrecy. Nine months of hiding. Nine months of holding back a barrage of selfies and life updates over social media.
Now, the dam has burst.
Kylie Jenner gave birth!!
In an announcement over Twitter and Instagram, Kylie shared that she has given birth to a healthy baby girl. She shared the news on her due date, February 4th, but actually gave birth on February 1st.
In addition to that joyous news -- and an apology to her fans for keeping this part of her life when they are accustomed to her sharing so much -- Kylie and her family revealed everything that fans had missed.
Below, you can see the numerous photos that Kylie and her family shared, including the world's first glimpse of Kim's daughter, Chicago West.
Are you ready to see the baby kick? Are you ready to see the ultrasound? Take a look!

Khloe Kardashian has made it official.
And officially beautiful.
The long-time reality star has finally come out and made the worst kept secret in Hollywood into... well... a reality:
About two months after multiple outlets confirmed the pregnancy news, E! personality herself has at last issued a statement in regard to her womb.
And it's so lovely and heartfelt that we may just collapse in a pile of tears.
"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!" wrote Khloe as a caption to the image below, adding:
"I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life!"
The picture, as you're about to see, features Kardashian's baby bump, along with her boyfriend's hands wrapped about his lady love's growing stomach.
"Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen!" Khloe continued.
"Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!!
"You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time!
"Thank you for making me so happy my love!"
Khloe has made no secret over the years of her desire to start a family.
She had wanted to make a baby with ex-husband Lamar Odom, but his drug habit ruined any chance of that happening (along with the couple's marriage, of course).
Since then, Khloe has dated James Harden and French Montana, but it was pretty clear throughout those romances that Khloe was looking for something more.
And she's found it with Thompson.
The two have been very hot, heavy and adorable for well over a year now.
They have no plans to marry, as far as we know, but they are in this for the long haul.
For several weeks now, folks had been wondering just how Khloe would go public with her expecting state.
On an episode of her family's reality series?
On a tabloid cover?
In a sit-down interview of some kind?
Nope, nope and nope. She simply went the social media route.
It remains unclear when Kardashian is due and what gender her first child will be. (Thompson has a one-year old from a previous relationship.)
Here is how Khloe concluded her major reveal:
Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately.
To enjoy our first precious moments just us. Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one!
But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life!
We're so very happy for her.
At some point in the next month or so, Kim Kardashian will welcome a third child via surrogate.
Moreover, Kylie Jenner is pregnant with her first baby!
While we wait to see how Kylie will confirm her own major piece of stunning news, we'd just like to say the following:
Congratulations, Khloe and Tristan!!!!!!!
NOTE: Give Khloe credit for this subtle product push.
How much do you think she was paid by Calvin Klein to wear that attire in her announcement photo?
We're not being facetious. Well played, Keeks!
Eva Longoria is getting set to ring in the new year with the most exciting news possible:
A rep for the former Desperate Housewives star has confirmed the blessed development, adding that Longoria is four months along and she even knows the gender of the baby-to-be.
It will be a boy.
And the father, of course, is Longoria's husband, Jose Baston.
The impending bundle of joy will be the first child for the 42-year old star, while Baston already has three kids.
He shares children José, Tali and Mariana with ex-wife Natalia Esperón.
Early last year, Longoria gushed over her then-fiance, telling Us Weekly all about his benevolent personality and how it especially shined through when it came to his kids.
"He’s a very selfless person and he’s an amazing dad," Longoria told the tabloid at the time, adding:
"His children are the most important thing to him and that’s really beautiful to watch.”
Baston is president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America.
He started dating Longoria about four years ago and the two got engaged in Dubai in December 2015.
They were married in May of 2016 in Mexico.
Longoria, meanwhile, sparked pregnancy chatter in September when she stepped out a loose-fitting dress while on vacation in Greece.
Previous to this sighting, in April of this year, Longoria laughed off other pregnancy rumors after photos of her were snapped on a board.
“I saw some pictures of myself [looking] really fat on a boat,” she laughed in a Snapchat video.
“I have to tell you, all I did was eat cheese. So that’s the news of the day. I’m not pregnant, just eating a lot of cheese, a lot of wine, a lot of pancakes.”
Well...we're sorry to report that Longoria won't be drinking very much wine over the next five months.
But it will all be worth it in the end.
The beautiful actress was cheated on by then-husband Tony Parker many years ago and admitted to People Magazine in May that she didn't really think she would walk down the aisle again.
"It's him," though," she told the publication. "He makes it all worth it."
How sweet, right?!?
Hola was the first to report the news of Longoria’s pregnancy.
We send our very best wishes to the couple!
Dwayne Johnson has taken a break from being fast and/or furious to be open and excited.
The beloved actor has some very exciting news to share:
He and girlfriend Lauren Hashian are expecting their second child together!
The 45-year old ex-wrestler made the announcement in the most adorable way possible,too:
By sharing a photo of his daughter, Jasmine, who confirmed the great news and added an important detail to the development as well:
“Our Jasmine Lia would like to make a big announcement – IT’S A GIRL,” Johnson wrote, adding:
“Lauren and I are boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby.”
It’s unclear at the moment just how far along Hashian is, but she’s probably just past her first trimester.
Continued Johnson in the caption to the photo below:
“Jazzy is excited to boss around and protect her lil’ sis. And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana.
“All girls. One dude. And a boy dog. I wouldn’t have it any other way. #ItsAGirl #GratefulMan #TequilaTime.”
Johnson and Hashian have been a romantic item for approximately 10 years.
They welcomed Jasmine into the world in December of 2015, with Johnson melting the hearts of human beings everywhere when he sang her “happy birthday” last year.
Prior to that moving rendition, Johnson wrote the following of his little girl on Instagram:
“Happy 4 month birthday Jasmine!
“One day you’ll know just how happy, proud, lucky and blessed you, your sister and your mama make me.
“You’ll also thank me one day for your toughness and your mama’s everything else.”
Seriously, he may look all big and VERY strong, but Johnson is just a softie at heart.
Johnson is also father to 16-year-old Simone, his daughter with ex-wife Dany Garcia.
He maintains a solid relationship with both Simone and Dany, who continued to work as his business manager even after the former couple’s divorce.
Simone, in fact, was just named the 2018 Golden Globe Ambassador.
She said of the honor:
“I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in a household with strong role models and feel so honored to represent the HFPA for its 75th Anniversary.
“As the newly minted Golden Globe Ambassador, I hope to serve as a role model to young people everywhere and empower them to speak out on issues they are passionate about.”
Congrats to the entire family!
Million Dollar Listing New York star Fredrik Eklund and his husband, Derek Kaplan, celebrated their baby shower just a month and a half ago.
Well, now some serious congratulations are in order.
Their twins have been born! See their precious photo below!
Over the summer, we learned that Fredrik Eklund and Bethenny Frankel were joining forces for a new reality series, Bethenny & Fredrik Property Project.
Honestly, we haven't heard much about it since.
Part of that might just be because of the development process (honestly, the show's initially announced name ... needed work).
But in part, the news was overshadowed by some truly wonderful news in Fredrik's life.
He and his husband's surrogate wasn't just pregnant -- she was carrying fraternal twins!
(We've talked about reports, rumors, and speculation about different stars and their surrogates carrying twins before, but sometimes it happens, for real, especially if someone's received fertility treatments or IVF)
Fredrik and Derek went ahead and named their expected son and daughter Fredrick and Milla.
Fredrik shared this photo of the happy couple with their newborns, tagging it:
"Happiest moment of my life. Welcome Fredrick and Milla to the world."
The couple had suffered heartbreak in the past, as their surrogate in 2015 tragically miscarried. We absolutely understand why they waited to try again, but we're obviously excited that they did.
They announced in August that they were expecting twins.
And, back in October, Fredrik tweeted a photo of him and Derek at their baby shower. Notice the balloons!
On Thanksgiving, they shared a family photo just days before their twins were due.
They captioned the photo below with some moving reflections on their journey.
"The last photo before the twins arrive in just a few days."
They were sure to give credit where credit is due.
"So thankful... most of all to our surrogate, she’s become family through this."
That is so sweet! And we know that this will be emotional for her, too.
"At night I put my hand on her stomach and feel Milla and Fredrick kicking & we can’t wait to finally welcome them home...."
And now they finally can!
"It’s hard to explain but Derek and I’ve both been so giggly all the time lately."
Giggly or giddy? Both of those make sense when you're excited.
"It’s like entering another dimension this thing, if you’ve had kids perhaps you can relate?"
A lot of parents can.
"I think my heart is going to explode when I finally hold them."
We're glad that we got the photo of them both holding their twins.
"We’re so appreciative of all the well-wishes and love [heart emoji] Happy Thanksgiving from us! #nextchapter"
And here's the photo:
It's so festive!
It's always wonderful when children are born into a loving home.
Fredrik has studied economics, sold homes to big-name celebrities, stars on an Emmy-nominated reality series, and even did a very brief stint in gya porn when he was much younger.
But becoming a parent is going to be his and Derek's greatest adventure.
We hope you're sitting down for this shocking piece of news.
We hope you aren't operating any heavy machinery.
Okay? Ready? Here we go:
Jackson Kyle Roloff is now FIVE months old!!!!
Totally crazy, right?
It really does seem like only yesterday that Zach and Tori Roloff were happily informing fans that the latter had given birth to the couple's first child.
That blessed occasion took place on May 12 and this beloved couple has been incredibly open ever since regarding the status of little Jackson.
They sat down for an interview with People Magazine shortly after he entered the world, for example, and confirmed that he has dwarfism.
And, since then, both Tori and Zach have been constantly updating their Instagram feeds with photos of Jackson.
The latest (above) is a portrait of the tiny human at five months old and it was shared along with the following message from Tori:
- Jackson is grabbing everything.
- He is super smiley in the morning and slightly grumpy in the evening.
- Bath time is still our favorite.
- Jackson can now lift himself up on his stomach.
- He loves making noises with his feet.
- We can feel his first two teeth coming in.
- He has been sleeping in his own room all month and is rockin it!.
- And J loves hanging out at the pumpkin patch!
Tori concluded her update by writing "Love you so much sweet boy!"
So do we!
We're so grateful to Zach and Tori for keeping us this well apprised when it comes to their son.
It's been a very busy few days for Jackson, based on his parents' social media activity.
For example, his mother dressed him up like a pumpkin and sat him down in a patch in the family's farm in what just might be THE CUTEST PHOTO WE'VE EVER SEEN IN OUR LIVES.
Also, Jackson got a change to hang out with his cousin, Ember Jean, who was born just over a month ago to Audrey and Jeremy Roloff.
Might this actually be the cutest photo in the whole wide world?
Back when Jackson turned four months old, Tori said he could roll over and occasionally hold his head up.
He was also coming off his first airplane ride and weighed nearly 16 pounds.
It's amazing how much babies can change over the course of just a few weeks, isn't it?
Take a look at all the pictures below to get an idea of what we mean:
The Duggar Family can now count a new precious bundle of joy among its members.
It was revealed via the family blog on Tuesday night that Anna Duggar and Josh Duggar have welcomed their fifth child into the world.
His name is Mason Garrett… he weighed nine pounds and one ounce at birth… he measured 22 inches in length... and HERE HE IS:
"We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well," reads the blog post, continuing as follows:
"He arrived today without complication and we already adore him. The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing.
"We want to thank everyone for your prayers, kind words and well wishes. We appreciate it much more than we could ever express.
"We pray God blesses each of you with an abundance of the kindness you’ve shown us."
Just as Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have named all their children with "J" monikers, Anna and Josh have chosen an "M" theme for their children.
As such, Mason joins older siblings Mackynzie (seven years old), Michael (six years old), Marcus (four years old) and Meredith (two years old).
The couple announced in a blog entry on the same Duggar website in March that they were expecting another child this year.
This one came as a surprise because... well... Josh has quite the sordid family history.
He admitted two years prior to this pregnancy announcement that he had molested two of his sisters, an ugly scandal that his parents helped him cover up.
They didn't report Josh - who was a teenager when his committed these heinous actions - to the authorities, choosing instead to handle the behavior internally.
Duggar acknowledged this dark mark in his past upon announcing Anna was expecting once again.
He wrote at the time:
“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family."
"Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust... We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time."
As recently as last week, it was reported that Josh and Anna remained in marriage counseling.
This report alleged that the ex-reality stars are “trying desperately to salvage their troubled relationship," which was also placed in major danger when Josh confessed to cheating on Anna.
Wrote Anna and Josh several months ago:
“As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year."
"Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!”
In August of 2015, Josh checked into a faith-based rehab facility in Illinois, not long after admitting he was addicted to pornography and had been unfaithful to Anna.
He completed this stint in March of last year.
Later this month, meanwhile, he and Anna will celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary.
As for other members of Josh's famous family?
They've been busy procreating and getting married, per usual.
With all of this going on around him in Arkansas, Josh has mostly been flying under the celebrity gossip radar for awhile now.
Or at least trying to.
TLC has gone out of its way to shield him from the public (see above) as though he were some sort of reality TV pariah.
He's back in the fold and back in the news now, however. But for the most positive of reasons, at least.
No matter what you think of this man and/or his decisions over the years, there's now another tiny human being in the picture.
Let's all hope little Mason is raised in a happy, healthy, loving environment, and that his family continues to heal the divisions of the past.
We wish him the best.
Olympic legend Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole are expecting their second child, the duo announced in dueling social media posts.
Phelps and the former Nicole Johnson are already parents to a little boy named Boomer ... who seems pretty hyped to be a big brother!
The greatest swimmer ever wrote, alongside the photo above: “Number 2 on the way!!!! So excited!! Wonder if it’s a boy or a girl??”
We too wonder this, but there's no debating that Boomer is about as precious as it gets as he holds his mom's pregnancy test.
(Which we presume is positive, hence the post.)
Added Nicole in her own Instagram post featuring the same photo of herself and her son, “Lil mans going to be a Big Brother!!!”
The couple met in 2007, started dating in 2009 and temporarily broke up prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics before reuniting in 2014.
Michael's been with her through a lot of ups and downs in life, but never has he seemed happier than right here, right now.
Not to be left out, Boomer, 15 months, says he's looking forward to big brotherhood as well, according to his personal Instagram.
“So excited to see what mama is having!! Do I get to have a brother or a sister?!?” Phelps and Johnson's son "wrote" earlier.
Nicole and Michael welcomed Boomer in May 2016, just months before he capped off his historic Olympic career in Rio that summer.
They also got married last year - two times!
Michael and Nicole, both 32, tied the knot in June and then wed again in late October during a larger event in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Clearly, parenthood suits them, as he said earlier this year they were already thinking about number two in terms of when, not it.
“Nicole has recently brought up that she would like a girl!” Phelps told People. “We definitely want more kids, it just depends on when."
“I’m sure I’m getting pressure.”
Hey, at least she knows the swimmer's boys can ... sorry, that's not even that funny at the end of the day, but we couldn't resist.
Phelps said Nicole’s pregnancy with Boomer wasn’t planned, but this time around revealed, “[We’re] trying to get moving on some things!”
"We are so fortunate to have a healthy and happy baby and hopefully more coming soon, but we don’t know when,” Michael added.
“We’re going through life everyday happy and blessed with what we have. But I hope to have more kids in the future,” he said.
Now in retirement, the winner of an eye-popping 23 Olympic medals from 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 combined is quite content.
He may miss the competition sometimes, but having devoted his whole life to the sport, extra time at home with the kid is great as well.
So many milestones, every day.
“I think that is the coolest thing, watching him grow," he said of his adorable young son. "Just watching him figure out new things.”
Congrats to the whole family!
No matter what Chris Harrison tries to tell you every year, The Bachelor is terrible at making actual love connections.
But that doesn't mean the women who have appeared on either The Bachelorette or The Bachelor haven't eventually made a different kind of connection: that of egg and sperm.
The following stars and contestants have all welcomed bundles of joy into their lives since becoming part of our lives on the small screen.

It's only been two days since Kailyn Lowry welcomed her third child, but fans are already clamoring for updates.
Kailyn revealed the baby's gender with a tweet reading simply, "Mother of boys," and now fans are dying to know the kid's name.
But it looks like they'll be forced to wait for a very good reason:
Kail hasn't chosen a name yet.
We know this due to yet another straightforward social media post:
"I still don't have a baby name," Kail tweeted last night.
Naturally, that set off an avalanche of suggestions, with many fans offering up their own first names as inspiration.
Kailyn had to expect that when she revealed her son is still nameless, but we don't think she was really seeking suggestions.
She first revealed that she's having difficulty deciding on the perfect moniker several weeks ago.
At one point, she even jokingly (we hope) posted an article about how long parents are legally allowed to go without naming their children.
But that doesn't mean she's wanting for ideas.
In fact, she's already offered up a list of her favorite contenders.
"If only you could get the baby daddy's input. He probably didn't even show up to the hospital though. 3x3," tweeted one follower, referencing the fact that Kailyn now has three children by three different fathers.
"She could name him Trey. You know, for the 3rd baby by the 3rd daddy," another user replied.
"Griffin, Nixon, Ripken [and] Silas" were apparently Kail's favorite possibilities for a boy.
Of those four, Griffin and Silas seem to have the most support amongst her fans.
We suppose they have the advantage of not calling to mind a disgraced president or a preternaturally injury-resistant baseball player.
Whatever the case, it seems the decision is entirely up to Kailyn.
After a brief fling, Lowry is no longer dating Chris Lopez, and she recently revealed that her former flame will not play a role in the life of their son.
The reason behind Lopez's decision remains unclear.
We'll keep you posted with updates on the Great Name Wait.
In the meantime, feel free to watch Teen Mom 2 online at TV Fanatic and relive the many ups and downs in the life of Kailyn Lowry.
The self-described "longest pregnancy of the year" has come to an end for Kailyn Lowry.
Because this Teen Mom 2 star has finally given birth to her third child!
In exciting news broken by Radar Online, Lowry has delivered one of The Hollywood Gossip's most anticipated children in several months.
Adding to her controversial family early Saturday morning, the reality star welcomed a baby boy at 3 a.m. on August 5.
He weighed seven pounds and 15 ounces at the time he became an official human being.
We do not yet know the bundle of joy's length nor, more importantly, do we know his name.
Lowry had teased both the gender and the name of her impending child for most of the spring and summer.
At one point Kailyn tweeted that she was considering "Griffin, Nixon, Ripken [or] Silas" if the baby proved to be a boy.
So it may very well be one of those monikers.
As recently as six days ago, meanwhile, Lowry expressed irritation at still being pregnant, writing on social media:
“I’m convinced I’m never having the baby and it’s all a dream. I feel no progress here lol.”
But shortly after the Internet blew up with confirmation that she did, indeed, have the baby, Kailyn chimed in herself via Twitter.
"Mother of boys," she simply wrote, mere minutes ago.
The Teen Mom 2 mainstay reluctantly announced her pregnancy in February, confessing at the time that she hadn't planned on going public with the big news just yet.
Already the mother to a seven-year old named Isaac (with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera) and a three-year old named Lincoln (with ex-husband Javi Marroquin), Kailyn "wanted this to be a private time."
Lamenting that she just hoped "I could be excited while not getting chased by paparazzi and bothered with crazy headlines,” she wrote on Instagram, blaming “people” in her life for selling her out.
In other words, announcing her status before she was prepared to tell the world.
Did she plan to get pregnant, though?
Or was this a mistake?
"Please know this was a choice I made," Lowry wrote earlier this year, adding:
"I already know some won’t agree, but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out...
"I know this isn't an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay."
The next few weeks were filled with viral speculation over the identity of Kailyn's baby daddy.
Was it Javi? Was it an MTV producer with whom she carried on an explicit relationship?
No, it's apparently some dude named Chris Lopez, who has a very low profile and who reportedly met Lowry while she was earning her college degree.
While Kailyn's relationship status with Lopez is unclear at the moment, the pair do not appear to be exclusive boyfriend and girlfriend.
They don't appear to be on very good terms at all, unfortunately, with sources recently saying Lowry is afraid Lopez won't be in his son's life.
In any way, shape or form.
That would be very sad, if it ends up being the case.
“Kail became a relationship of convenience for him,” a source told Radar Online, explaining of Lopez and how he viewed his baby mama:
“He never actually loved her. It was a relationship, but he just decided he wanted something different and things didn’t work out so they went their separate ways.”
That would typically be fine and all.
But now there's a little person that exists and who would benefit greatly from having two active parents in his life.
Therefore, no matter what you may think of Kailyn Lowry and the decisions she's made in life, please join us in hoping she and Lopez can work something out.
For the sake of their brand new baby, at the very least, and for the two she already had, who are going through a lot as it is.
We wish nothing but health and happiness to Kailyn's latest child, and to her entire family at this exciting if tumultuous time.
