This Family Is Adorbs!
Yesterday was kind of an awesome day, right? Between Kerry Washington‘s surprise marriage, Jay-Z‘s early album stream, and the three different Miranda Kerr looks we got to gush over, I was a very happy blogger. Miranda never disappoints when she’s out on the town, and she continues her reign as the best-dressed-without-ever-seeming-to-try celebrity. The model was spotted with husband Orlando Bloom and little baby Flynn (who’s always adorable). It looks like the little family had a quiet 4th of July, walking around NYC and hitting up Central Park. Peep the gallery for more! They’re super-cute, right?

Last week we got to check out a fake photo of Kanye West‘s baby girl North West which was released to close family and friends of North‘s babymama that, naturally, leaked its way to the Internets by one of those untrustworthy family members or friends. Today we learn that Kanye and the mother of his daughter have reportedly been offered $3 million dollars for the first photos of their daughter … and the couple have turned down the offer. HMMM. Even tho Kanye is extremely wealthy, $3 mil. is still a huge chunk of change to reject. Is it possible that Kanye would rather give away the first photo of North West for free (much like Beyoncé and Jay-Z did with the first photos of Blue Ivy)? OR is he just holding out for more money?

"My daughter has asked that I ... "
About a week ago we learned that Paris Jackson, the only daughter of the late Michael Jackson, continues her recovery in medical care after she attempted suicide earlier this month. At the time, we heard that Paris has a long way to go before she is fully recovered. Today we are hearing from Paris‘s biological mother Debbie Rowe who has piped up to speak, seemingly, on behalf of her daughter. Despite the fact that Rowe asked “for privacy” in the wake of Paris‘s suicide attempt, she appears willing to break that privacy to speak publicly … after all, she was the person talking to Entertainment Tonight on the day that Paris was admitted to the hospital after her attempt. Debbie says that her daughter asked her to relay a message to fans … you can read that message below. More »
Meet Her 9 Month Old Son!
Back in July of last year we learned that happily married actors Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr. were expecting the birth of a baby boy … in September, we learned that SMG gave birth to that boy … in November, we learned that the couple named their son Rocky James. Today, all these months later, we finally get our first look at the little dude. SMG and FPJ didn’t show off their son in the pages of any magazine … and, seemingly, they’ve been able to keep him under wraps all this time. But, at long last, we finally get to meet Rocky James Geller-Prinze … who is 9 months old and totally adorable. More »
On Adoption, Race, And Supply & Demand For Babies In America
I just listened to a really fascinating story on NPR and I just had to share it you guys. One of the coolest classes I took in college was an Anthropology course on race and sexuality, and– interestingly enough– we ended up spending a few weeks on transracial adoption. My professor was a British woman who’d adopted a little boy who I think was half-black and half-Puerto Rican. During the adoption process she’d become very interested in the anthropological and cultural aspects of her experience and found lots of great literature and theories on the subject– readings which then ended up on our syllabus. Having been adopted I was really interested in the topic as well, which is why I was also drawn to this new story from NPR. They have a series called The Race Card Project, where topics for discussion are based on six-word submissions from listeners. This week the submission discussed was Black Babies Cost Less To Adopt and the conversation was fascinating. We haven’t had a formal meeting of PITNBs popCulture Theory Club since All My Babies Mamas, but I thought this would make a great topic. Click inside to learn more, as we theoretically put the “culture” back in “pop culture,” one post at a time…
Bow Down, Babies
There’s been a lot of talk about celebrity babies lately, what with the birth of baby North and the Royal bump watch coming to an end. But Beyoncé wants y’all to know that her baby, Blue Ivy Carter, is king of them all! LOL. Bey shared some adorable photos on Tumblr, the first of which features Blue with a crown being held atop her head. We also get a glimpse into Blue‘s closet– Mama Bey took a pic ‘wearing’ her daughter’s hot pink Tom Ford heels (because she obviously owns a pair of hot pink Tom Ford shoes), and there’s this fancy little dress that looks like it belongs on the red carpet… if babies were known to walk the red carpet. Peep the gallery for more! Beyoncé also posted some pics of herself/her amazing legs so enjoy that.
Not North West
LOL! So … Kanye West and his babymama have been trying to figure who they can trust and who they can NOT trust when it comes to news about their newborn baby girl North West. The couple concocted a plan where they sent a fake photo of their baby to friends to see if anyone would betray them and try to sell the photo for personal profit. And wouldn’t you know it … one of the couple’s friends tried to shop the photo around for sale. TMZ was offered the sale of the photo and they have released the fake photo as proof of this baby betrayal. Click below to see the fake photo of North West that is making the rounds as the real deal.

Sources Say She Is Looking At Several Months Of Treatment
As many of us know, Paris Jackson has been in a hospital since her suicide attempt at the beginning of the month, and since then we’ve heard a few reports about how she’s faring, and what the courts plan to do about the situation. Her mother Debbie Rowe has been involved, but apparently has no current plans to try to become Paris‘s legal guardian. Today we’re hearing that Paris is doing better, but still has a long ways to go before she’ll be returning to her home if Calabasas. Click inside to learn more.
No Middle Name, Just North West :/
Late yesterday it was revealed that Kanye West and his babymama decided to name their newborn daughter North West after TMZ got a hold of the baby’s birth certificate. Many folks have been very skeptical of the report because they simply cannot believe that any parents would choose to give their child a name like this. Today, we get to see the actual birth certificate and as you can see below, Kanye‘s baby girl has indeed been named North West. No middle name, no hyphenated last night … her damn name is NORTH WEST. LOL! More »
And It's ... Interesting
It’s been almost a week since Kanye West and his babymama welcomed the birth of their baby daughter and today — at last — we learn what the couple have decided to name the little girl. Rumors have been swirling since before the baby girl was born that she would be named something starting with a K (in honor of her mother and her mother’s wretched family) … some even suggested that the girl would be named KimYe which is a mixture of her parents’ first names. Others suggested that Kanye‘s daughter might be named in honor of his late mother Donda … which, to be honest, is what I thought was going to happen as well. It turns out that the little girl has neither been named KimYe nor Donda … in fact, her name is so out there, I thought it was a joke when I first heard it. Apparently, it’s no joke. TMZ reports that they’ve seen the newborn girl’s birth certificate and her name is … More »
