It’s a girl! Actress Kristen Bell and fiancé Dax Shepard welcomed their daughter and expressed their happiness today on Twitter. “Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!” Shepard tweeted. Bell, 32, added: “My new roommate poops her pants and doesn’t pay rent . . . basically Dax Shepard pre-sobriety. Welcome baby Lincoln.”
I’m loving the name – how about you?
I’m actually bummed out about this celebrity breakup! People.com is reporting that multi-tasker Ryan Seacrest and dancer turned actress Julianne Hough have decided to throw in the towel on their two year relationship. Dang it! I know you can never place bets on celebrity relationships, but I actually thought the next news we would be hearing from their camps is him putting a ring on it, not the complete opposite. A source “close to the couple” is saying that the reason for the split is simply due to busy work schedules. Well shucks. I’m off to Dairy Queen.

Fabulous news out of the Royal Family today! It was so funny – I was chatting on the phone with my mom about how the rumors are really swirling about Kate Middleton being pregnant, and I logged onto People.com to see their breaking news – Prince William and Duchess Kate are expecting! This is the statement People.com shared: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news. The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.”
I have been one that is obsessed with William and Kate – I loved staying up to watch their wedding and find Kate to be a top-notch role model to young girls, and of course – her classic fashion sense. No due date was announced, but I’m sure much of the world – myself included – will be watching and waiting anxiously!

Well, good news comes out of Hollywood! After hearing about the split between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, I was a bit bummed, I’ll admit it! But then I read the announcement that power-house Grammy winner Adele is pregnant! The singer herself broke the news, with the titled post “I’ve Got Some News” on her website. “I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx”

I have to say this bit of news surprised me – which I can’t say is typical when it comes to celebrity divorces. It was announced today that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing. People.com broke the news first, and has statements from each lawyer. “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” From Cruise’s camp: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.” The couple married in November 2006 and they have one child together – daughter Suri, 6. Cruise, 49, has been married twice previously, to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he shares two adopted children. This was the first marriage for Holmes, 33.
Anyone else surprised by this news? I know Tom got a lot of flack with jumping on Oprah’s couch announcing his love for Katie, but it seemed like the couple was genuinely in love. Then again, how do we ever know what goes on behind closed doors, especially in the Hollywood.
