Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall welcomed their first child, a little girl named Mia, on January 17th. I haven’t been paying that much attention, so I kind of missed the fact that up until this point, we hadn’t seen any photos of the baby. The royal family does tend to have rules about how and when and where certain events are photographed, and while Zara isn’t even technically royal, I’m a little bit surprised that she didn’t give away the first baby photos for free. Here are Mia’s first photos, on the cover of Hello Magazine. Apparently, it’s a multi-page spread and I’m absolutelyMore >
I know today feels like Kardashian Drama Overkill, but think of it this way – it’s going to be AWFUL when the baby is born. The drama will get taken to a really ridiculous level. There will be more magazine covers and tweets and photos and back-and-forth stories about what happened behind the scenes. So think of this is a preparation for the Gossip Marathon. Life & Style has a funny cover story this week – something about Kanye West wanting Kim to give birth naturally, and Kim’s birth plan involves drugs, a C-section and a tummy tuck. Once again, part of that is just subtext.
Here are some new photos that Beyonce just added to her Tumblr. She’s reorganized her Tumblr so you can now see photos and videos from her Mrs. Carter Tour too. Some of the pics that she’s put in the “My Life” area are from her trip to Cuba with Jay-Z last month, the same trip that caused all of that controversy. I like the photos of Beyonce and Jay-Z posing together, just because we rarely get to see those coupled-up, tourist-y photos.
As for Beyonce and her Bump of Secrets, yesterday we discussed whether or not Beyonce was trying to shut down speculation about her womb in the wake ofMore >
Over the years, LeAnn has used “dental drama” as an excuse to get out of lots of things. When she was on Twitter 24 hours a day, she would often complain of toothaches and dentist appointments, and she used those excuses to get out of concerts, appearances and just for plain sympathy. I always thought she was playing up the drama because… you know, she’s a drama queen. Like, she would cancel an appearance and complain of the flu or a toothache or something and then hours later she would be tweeting photos from the beach. Well, as it turns out… she might have actually been having genuineMore >
If there is one lady who lis looking very pretty in blue today, that would be Karolina Kurkova. The supermodel was spotted running a few errands while she was out and about in New York City on Thursday afternoon.
I love everything about her outfit here: the blue jacket, the scarf, and of course those shoes! Not everyone can pull off wearing ankle boots (including me), but it looks like Karolina is doing it with ease. She is a supermodel after all! Take a look at our photo gallery below and tell us, what do you think of Karolina’s out and about style? Is it a hit or a miss for you?Visit the More >
This is one of my peeves, but I understand how I have no right to claim this as one of my big celebrity issues like, say, bangs. I can’t speak about the subject of childbirth, I suppose, because I’ve never given birth and I probably never will (it’s not my priority, no judgment). But I get irritated by the Giseles of the world who can’t tell their own birth stories without giving me (and other women) waves of condescension and judgment. Like, I understand that Karolina Kurkova is probably just saying that natural childbirth was HER choice and it made sense for HER and everybody should doMore >
Pregnant Kristen Bell was on The Ellen Degeneres show today, and the Ellen people sent us some clips. Bell, 32, is pregnant with her first child, with fiance Dax Shephard. I love those two as a couple and hope for the best for them and their baby.
Kristen revealed to Ellen that they knows the sex of the baby but arechoosing to keep it a secret. She said she’s due sometime in late Spring, which I would guess to be around May. Ellen wouldn’t take no for an answer on the baby’s sex and she seemed to get some clues from Kristen suggesting that it’s a boy. My favorite part of the interview isMore >
“I can’t work out yet because my body is still too fragile. I try to eat whatever I want, but I don’t eat any dairy, and I guess that’s the biggest diet tip. Try and stay away from dairy — especially if you’re a woman! It’s really hard on your hormones.”
Megan has enough to do so soon after giving birth with her promotional duties for ‘This is 40′; I can see why exercise isn’t high on her list! She shared her family plans with theMore >
Sienna Miller covers the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. I like this David Slijper photo shoot, although I have seen this kind of stuff from Sienna before. I mean, how many Mod, 1960s-inspired photo shoots has she done over the years? I feel like that style is the default many magazines use for Sienna in particular. I guess what makes it “new” is that this is Sienna’s first big magazine cover since giving birth to her daughter Marlowe. And although Sienna and her baby-daddy Tom Sturridge were stingy with the details at first, Sienna does love to let everything pour out during anMore >
