"Kate must have been wearing a fake belly showing to the people that she was pregnant"
Over the weekend, Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed the birth of their second child, a daughter they named Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Almost as soon as Kate and Wills stepped out of the hospital with their newborn princess swaddled in their arms (just hours after she was born), conspiracy theorists started a campaign of theories ranging from claims that the baby was born via surrogate days ago to claims that the baby in Kate‘s arms was a doll. The loudest of these conspiracy theories are coming from Russia, obvs, and are honestly too silly to even consider taking seriously … OR ARE THEY?! More »
... on Instagram
You know, it’s a sign of the times when the official birth certificate of a new born princess is shared with the world on Instagram … like we see here with the release of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana‘s certificate of live birth. Official documents like this pertaining to members of the British royal family have been made immediately available to members of the public for many, many years but in this age of social media that immediacy has gotten even more instantaneous. As you can see below, the information on Princess Charlotte‘s birth certificate is pretty standard … but you have to see the occupations listed for her royal parents. Have a look. More »
Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
At last … at last we know the name of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s newborn baby daughter. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided to choose Star Wars Day (May 4th) as the day that they announced the name of their just born princess … who the royal couple have named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. I think many people felt pretty certain that the baby girl’s name would have either Diana (for Willy‘s mum) or Elizabeth (for Willy‘s gran) in her name … and now we learn that she has both, after her first name Charlotte (for Willy‘s father Charles — the next in line for the British crown). I love it. The little princess will be known formally as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge … which is a bit title for a wee little girl. More »
No name announcement today, I'm afraid
The newborn Princess of Cambridge has only been born for a day or so and already she is the talk of the town … er, world. Prince Harry, the newborn royal baby’s uncle, has yet to meet the little miss because he is on the other side of the planet doing his royal duties in Australia until the end of May … but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have anything to say about his newborn niece. When asked about the princess’s birth, Harry happily shared his opinion that she is “absolutely beautiful” … a sentiment that pretty much the rest of us have about the second born child of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

There's no place like palace
Just hours after we learned that Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed the birth of their second child today and moments after we saw photos of their eldest child, Prince George, making his way into the hospital to meet the newborn princess, we learn that the royal family has already left the hospital bound for home. Prince William and Kate stepped outside the Lido Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital with baby princess in arms just a short time ago … and already home, safe and sound. We still do not know what the couple have named their baby girl but I suspect her name will be announced at some point this weekend. Considering how quickly everything is progressing with royal baby #2, we may get the next big update in about 45 seconds.
Earlier this morning, we learned the happy news that Kate Middleton and Prince William FINALLY welcomed the birth of their second child — a girl! Right now, we get to see the first photos of Prince William bringing his son Prince George to St. Mary’s Hospital to meet the newborn princess for the first time. At this point, we don’t know what the royal couple have decided to name their baby girl but I suspect we’ll get that news shortly. For now, let’s just focus on how big Prince George has grown in the extremely cute photos of him below. More »

And they gave him an appropriately hipster name
Congratulations and love are in order for Mr. and Mrs. Justin Timberlake because today we learn that Jessica Biel gave birth to the couple’s first child — a bouncing baby boy.

Then, in February, Justin and Jessica FINALLY officially confirmed her pregnancy with the cutest photo possible. Today, we learn the very happy news that baby boy Timerlake has arrived … and was given the most hipster, possibly the perfect comic book villain name ever.

No, it's not Excalibur Anaconda or Butternut Summer Squash
Shortly after Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed the birth of their daughter a few months ago, word started going around that the happy parents named their child Violet. For some reason, that rumor really stuck to the point that Ryan had to publicly deny that he named his daughter Violet (not that there’s anything wrong with the name Violet, just that that isn’t his daughter’s name). With Ryan‘s denial came the seeming vow that neither he nor Blake would be revealing their daughter’s name to the public ever … even tho we did hear that the girl was giving an “unconventional” name. Ryely‘s refusal to reveal the baby’s name made it a thing that people kept asking about and today … at last … he FINALLY revealed the name he and Blake gave their newborn daughter. Click below to watch video of his interview on the Today show earlier this morning and find out AT LAST the name of the Lively-Reynolds child. More »
