Back in July, BeHappyMum brought you Baby Count Down Watch – a list of all those celebrities who were expecting. Want to know how those celebrity mums-to-be are doing?
Two Hollywood ‘A-list’ couples have baby girls
We’re pleased to tell you that Hollywood actresses Mila Kunis and Eva Mendes have welcomed baby girls! Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s daughter Wyatt was born on 30 September, while Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s little girl, Esmeralda, arrived on 12 September.
Sources say the new mums are ecstatic with their new roles and have both taken to motherhood like ducks to water. It’s not only the new mums who are adapting well; the same sources say that both new dads are eager to be hands-on fathers and are only too happy to help out with changing nappies and night feeds.
Clinton dynasty welcomes little girl
On 26 September, Chelsea Clinton also had a little baby girl called Charlotte. She announced the good news on Twitter and Facebook, saying she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are ‘…full of love, awe and gratitude as we celebrate the birth of our daughter.’ But no one seemed more excited than new grandma Hilary Clinton who said that ‘grandmother’ is her ‘…most exciting title yet’. Well said, Granny Clinton!
It’s a boy for Kimberley Walsh
Former Girls Aloud singer Kimberly Walsh tweeted in the small hours of 5 September ‘…Our beautiful baby boy Bobby arrived yesterday afternoon…he’s perfect’. Apparently, former bandmate Cheryl Fernandez-Versini rushed to congratulate the new mum just an hour after he was born – and cried! Kimberley’s long-term partner Justin Scott, a self-confessed night owl, is helping with late feeds. He says: ‘I think some dads feel like a spare part in the early stages so it’s nice that I’m able to help out and it gives Kim the chance to have a nap here and there.’
Claire Sweeney has ‘miracle baby boy’
TV presenter Claire Sweeney gave birth to baby boy Jaxon on 29 September. Claire, who split from partner Daniel Riley at the end of last year, says that the birth of her son has brought them back together. The new mum told OK magazine that Daniel has been ‘…amazing and he couldn’t be any more supportive or a better dad. Having Jaxon has made us so much closer and suddenly we feel like a team… it’s like we’ve become a unit, especially as Daniel is so hands on.’
Baby #3 for Rebecca Ferguson
As we were writing this blog on 21 October, word on the street was that singer Rebecca Ferguson had gone into labour. The good news is that she gave birth to a little girl called Arabella on Saturday 25th October – a new sister for Lillie May (9) and Karl (7).
We say: Congratulations to all these new mums. And enjoy every precious moment – babies really do grow up too quickly!
WHO’S STILL EXPECTING?
Singer Kelly Rowland is only weeks away from giving birth to her new baby. Talking to ELLE magazine about the changes her body is going through, she says: ‘It’s really…amazing to watch your body carrying a human.’ Amen to that!
We say: Mums-to-be – get ready for the best adventure of your lives!
