Here is some Friday morning preciousness for you! We finally get to meet Thandie Newton’s son, Booker Jombe Parker, by way of a photo the celebrity mom posted on Twitter a few days ago. Booker is just 6 weeks old, with Thandie giving birth to her third child March 3. On the big day, the 41-year-old announced via Twtter:
“Our baby boy is finally here! Booker Jombe Parker. Born joyously at home yesterday.
“My 3rd home birth with brilliant independent midwife Caroline Flint – and Carole Goddard @PhoenixMidwives. Keep independent midwifery alive!”
Thandie is married to English writer, director, and producer Ol Parker. The couple tied the knot in 1998 and have three children with whom she all had home births: daughters Ripley (born in 2000) and Nico (born in 2004), and this little cutie Booker. Thandie and Ol’s daughters were reportedly named after the character Ellen Ripley in the Alien films and the singer Nico, but we don’t know the inspiration behind Booker yet. We do know he’s cute as a button though. Congrats again Thandie!
We knew celebrities do a lot of things under the guise of entertainment, but sometimes these ladies take the risqué clothing a little too far — even on their off days!
Gwen loves to rock the cutout tank tops that show half of her bra. She’s been seen out with bright red bra straps showing, and here you can make out everything going on under her shirt. How are her little boys going to learn to keep their space from a different set of ta-tas when they like them?
2014 will be an amazing year for some of our most loved female celebrities as they become first-time moms or repeat moms. Though the babies haven’t arrived just yet, these celebrities are expecting their bundle of joy sometime in the near future. Here are 14 celeb moms who are due in 2014.
Many women face the challenge of choosing between a career and children, but there are plenty who choose both. Raising children is the hardest job to have and to balance that with a successful career is even harder. These 15 celebrity moms have been in movies, television shows, on runways and red carpets looking stunning, full of energy and have even brought their little ones along to celebrate with them. Hard work, drive and determination have served these women well in their public and personal lives.
Nia Long has starred in some of our most classic films like “Boyz in the Hood,” “Love Jones” and “The Best Man.” She’s been on episodes of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and many other projects and with the length of her career you may forget that she is a mother of two sons Massai, age 12 and Kez, age 1.
It hasn’t even been a year since Tamera Mowry-Housley gave birth to her adorable son, Aden, and she’s already making plans for baby number two.
“I am planning on having a second baby. My doula says the 10-month spot is the sweet spot because I’m having so much fun with my son. He sleeps through the night; he’s mobile, but not to the point where he’s breaking my back. That’s usually the time that people are like, ‘Okay, I’m ready for No. 2.’ That’s where I am right now,” the 35-year-old first time mom told OK! magazine.
She went on to say that if she is lucky enough to conceive twins this time, she would be thankful, but added that twins can be quite a handful.
“If I was blessed with twins, of course, I would be very grateful and very happy. However, having twins is a lot of work, so I physically—or mentally—can’t imagine taking care of two at the same time.”
Being a twin herself, Tamera also offered advice for anyone who may be raising twins, regarding the importance of individuality.
“It’s a lot of work. Make sure that people don’t see them as one person…It’s important to realize that they may look alike… and they may have come out at the same time, but they’re individuals. Treat them that way.”
Those Mowry girls love being moms, that’s for sure!
Between Brad and Angelina, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann, and Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson, it’s starting to look like Hollywood is taking baby making back to the olden days when parents had as many babies humanly possible.
Us Weekly is reporting that 41-year-old funny mama Maya Rudolph and her longtime partner, Oscar-nominated director Paul Thomas Anderson, have just welcomed their fourth child. Yes, fourth! So far, the pair is keeping the newborn’s gender under wraps, but the two are already parents to two girls and one boy: Pearl, 7, Lucille, 3, and Jack, 2.
Back in April, Maya confirmed her pregnancy on an episode of the “Ellen Degeneres Show” while doing media rounds with “Grown Ups 2″ co-star Salma Jayek, who joked:
“I remember last summer she said, ‘I can’t believe I’m having three children. I’m never doing this again.”
To that Maya responded:
“It’s amazing how we forget. It’s like that light pen thing they do in Men in Black. Somebody [pointed it in my face] and I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.’”
That’s clearly the case since Maya and Paul didn’t waste any time getting pregnant with baby number four. Wonder if there will be a fifth??
Congrats on the new addition to the family!
Many of us were stunned to learn that Halle Berry was expecting her second child at age 46. But it appears that the newly married Oscar Award-winning actress is not the only celebrity expectant mom in the 40+ club. Child star-turned-Hollywood-director, Kim Fields, is also expecting a bundle of joy!
The 44-year-old actress made the announcement during a recent appearance at Fox’s new daytime talk show, The Real, sending the audience into a boisterous applause.
“I have a big announcment. I’ve been in the lab, working both personally and professionally. One of the projects that I’ve been working on has been a co-production with my husband Christopher and… tada!” a glowing Kim said, as she rose from behind the desk to show off her protruding belly.
She went on to share that she’s having a boy!
“Yes, this is Quincy Xavier. He’s a boy, yes. Our first son, Sebastian Alexander, he’s six now. He’s very excited. My husband Christopher is also very excited. We’re very, very blessed.”
Unlike Halle, who referred to her second pregnancy as “the biggest shock of her life,” Kim revealed that she and her husband had been trying to get pregnant for some time now.
“It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years.”
The Platinum-haired beauty also shared that prior to this pregnancy, she miscarried twice.
“We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. Chris and I were very blessed to really have one another, to have our family and friends and our God to really get us through that.”
“If I’m encouraging to anybody … it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant. Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal ‘cuz certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started — my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible. Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said,’Okay.’ They tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.”
What a beautiful story!

Last week we told you that 46-year-old beauty Halle Berry is expecting her second child and it appears that The Call actress was just as shocked as we were by the news.
“I 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,” Berry gleefully told CNN‘s Alina Cho during a recent interview.
She went on to say that she is very excited and feels great.
“I feel fantastic. This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth,” she gushed.
This will be Halle’s second child and the first that she will share with her 47-year-old French actor fiance, Oliver Martinez. Halle’s daughter Nahla Aubry, 5, is from a previous relationship Halle had with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who is a Canadian model. After an extended custody battle over Nahla, both Gabriel and Halle were finally able to reach an ‘amicable’ custody settlement back in November at a Los Angeles County courthouse. Details of the agreement were never officially released.
Halle and Oliver have been engaged since 2010. Last summer, news leaked that the love birds were reportedly planning a South African wedding ceremony in Cape Town, but nothing further has come of those reports since they hit the gossip circuits back in June.
This is all really exciting news! We can’t wait to see little Nahla assuming the big sister role.
Congrats, Halle and Oliver.
Last month, we put Tamar Braxton on official baby bump watch after she made an appearance on 106 and Park wearing a rather baggy one-piece Matthew Williamson jumpsuit. This morning while she and her sisters were promoting the upcoming season of Braxton Family Values during an appearance on Good Morning America, the “Love and War” singer confirmed that she and hubby Vincent Herbert are expecting their first child!
“I have a love on top. I’m pregnant,” she gleefully told the audience.
“I feel great and greedy at the same time. This is the most I’ve eaten ever,” she continued.
As far as how soon we can expect for a little Tamar or Vince to enter the world, the mom-to-be says the baby will be here in no time.
“I don’t have that many months to go. Almost there!”
Fans are ecstatic about the news and her Twitter mentions are filled with well wishes. This is amazing news for the couple as they have each expressed interest in starting a family.
In other Tamar Braxton news, during an interview with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club, the youngest Braxton sister revealed that she will not be returning to Tiny Tonight.
“I’m not on that show anymore. Well you know, I only actually agreed to do two from the beginning. Because Tiny and I are really, really good friends. Everyone knows that. So like I told her I would do it and that was it. I’m saying that I wasn’t scheduled to do it in the first place,” she said.
She also expressed that she definitely has a problem with Claudia Jordan.
“Hell yeah. Even with your girlfriends, you just can’t sit up and talk about somebody’s man like that. You know what I mean?”
Ironically, Tamar is known for running down her sisters’ husbands, which they quickly pointed out.
“I’m growing,” she humorously replied.
We’ve very happy for Tamar and Vince!
