Cardi B Gives Birth!

Welcome to the World Kulture Kiari Cephus

It's a girl!

Congrats to Cardi B and her hubby Offset on the birth of their first child together. He has other children (3) from previous relationships and this is Cardi B's first. The 25-year-old welcomed the interestingly-named Kulture Kiari Cephus into the world yesterday, July 10, sharing the joyous news with fans on her Instagram account.

The news comes not long after the rapper revealed she was already married to Offset when the world thought they were not yet "official." Perhaps she and her man were playing by the "rules" of the old sing-song-y saying, "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby…" You get the idea.

And what a year it has been for Cardi B. Being a new mom is a miracle, finding one's "soul mate" is spectacular, and as Cardi B continues to climb the charts and break records, the future is in the palm of her well-manicured hands.

As Cardi B gets into the swing of motherhood and all that comes with it, we can bet that as soon as she is able to, she'll be back on stage stunning crowds and soaring the charts some more. Offset is already familiar with being a dad, so adding another bundle of joy to ever-growing family makes things all the merrier.

No pics of the precious baby yet but stay tuned for the first we can find.

E!Online got the scoop that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have welcomed a third son into their family—but have given the poor kid a dumb celebrity baby name....

Journey River Green


Is Journey even a name?

Well, little Journey (!) will the the youngest in the family and has his brothers Noah Shannon, 3½ and Bodhi Ransom, 2 to look up to and reassure him that his name isn't ridiculously pretentious, as well as 14 year old Kassius from Green's previous relationship.

Fox 30, and Green, 43 announced their separation and impending divorce in August 2015, so it came as a bit of a surprise when it was revealed that they were expecting a baby in April this year. It appears that their split has been called off , but there's been no official announcement of a reconciliation. People's sources however are adamant that they are very much together;

"Brian and Megan are living together in Malibu with their boys. They have been getting along and seem very happy."

They've certainly seemed very comfortable together since their split, having been photographed holding hands on a Hawaii vacay, family outings and date nights. Good for them, if they can find a way to keep their family together it can only be a good thing.

What Do You Think Of Chrissy Teigen's Baby Name?

Back to baby Journey....upon further investigation it actually is a name and means....wait for it...."a journey"!

Seriously, these celebrities are just so incredibly selfish when it comes to naming their kids. A unique name can be beautiful and unusual, but doesn't have to make a child shrink in embarrassment every time it's said out loud. Plus of course, there is always a (very slim) possibility that the child of a celebrity may actually want to lead a low key, regular life and won't forever want to be reminded of the phase their parents went through when they thought it was 'whacky' to give them a bizarre name.

Let Zowie Bowie / David Jones be a lesson to them all.

Reports are emerging that Courtney Stodden is pregnant with her first child.

The news that should send child services into DEFCON 1 is being reported by Reality Tea, who claim to have seen a video announcement that the teen bride and her 55 year old husband Doug Hutchison sent to friends and family.

Courtney Stodden Ex-Publicist Backs-Up Her Mom’s Threesome Claims

The video apparently shows 21 year old Courtney in the bathroom waiting for the results of a pregnancy test.  She sees the positive lines and sits down saying she is "a little overwhelmed".

She's right to be overwhelmed.  The thought of an innocent child being born into the train-wreck situation that has become young Courtney's life would scare the shit out of anyone.

Poor Courtney escaped from the clutches of her ambitious mother into the arms of an equally controlling husband at the tender age of 16.  Well, not exactly escaped—more like was pimped out by momma-from-hell Krista Keller, who was desperately attempting to fulfill her dreams of fame through a daughter she'd been sexualizing to that end since the age of 12. The kid never stood a chance.

Courtney Stodden Feels The Bern—Endorses Sanders In Mesmerizing Video

Courtney, an ardent PETA supporter is, according to everyone who meets her, a sweet girl.  If you see her on reality shows by herself, she comes across as a gentle soul with an air of a rabbit caught in the headlights.  She is not stupid but just doesn't seem to know how to extract herself from her life—there's definitely the air of Stockholm Syndrome about her.

If the pregnancy news is true, Courtney could with support, be a great mother. However she really stands no chance of anything resembling a normal life until she cuts the two adults who have shaped her into the mess she is now out of her life for good.

Courtney Stodden Without Makeup Is A Genuine Natural Beauty

How much damage that poor baby is going to endure if it is in any way subjected to Krista and Doug just doesn't even bear thinking about.

Let's hope once she has responsibility for another life, Courtney will see the light.



Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have welcomed their second child into the world.

What really deserves our congratulations (and admiration) though, is the fact that she had the baby TWO WEEKS ago and nobody knew!

The baby girl, named Amada Lee Gosling who was born on April 29, is a sister to their 20 month old daughter Esmeralda.  The unusual name Amada is after Eva's grandmother, which Eva revealed in 2014 means "beloved" in Spanish.

What Do You Think Of Chrissy Teigen’s Baby Name?

The notoriously private couple met on set of The Place Behind The Pines in 2011 and since then have kept their relationship to themselves.  It was only in mid-April that news of Eva's second pregnancy broke when she was spotted hiding her baby bump—which bearing in mind she was pretty much nine months pregnant by that stage is kind of hard to do.

The only reason the news of the baby's birth has come out now is that some lowlife at the hospital told TMZ, who then obtained a copy of the baby's birth certificate.

I really hope the hospital (Providence St John's Health Center in Santa Monica) find out who sold out the new parents' privacy for a fast buck and fire them.  Seriously, we all love a bit of celebrity gossip (some of us even make a living out of it), but just because a person's job makes them famous, it doesn't entitle us to know every single detail of their private lives when they patently don't court 24/7 publicity.

Coco Twerks With Her Baby In Stroller—Is Cocolicious Supermom

Gosling and Mendes have always kept a low profile and are most definitely not cut from the same celebrity cloth as the Kardashians, who are such media whores they had to be treated for the DTs in Cuba last week when they only had intermittent wifi. Seriously.

The couple don't call up the paps every time they leave the house and they don't update us via social media every time they fart.  I mean, can you imagine a world where every second of a Kardashian pregnancy from conception to afterbirth isn't pimped out by the Momager™ on Instagram and E!? No, us neither. Pimp Momma Kris's head must be spinning permanently right now until she can come up with a way to kash in on son Rob's impending fatherhood (she'll have to wrestle kontrol from Blac Chyna)—you can imagine her sitting behind her desk in her darkened office screaming hysterically at her assistants as they feverishly crush up Xanax to sneak into her morning cheeseburger.

Stupidest Celebrity Baby Names Of 2015

Anyway, I digress...back to Eva and Ryan.


And before anyone points out the irony that Popdust too are writing about the secret baby...we know!  But it's out there now so the news is fair game—our point is, it's totally unfair that they've had this news made public before they were ready.



Celebrity moms over 45 look damn good!

The announcement yesterday that Janet Jackson will be 50 by the time she gives birth to her first child certainly caught me by surprise.

Those of us who had our children when we were considerably younger shudder at the thought of having a baby right at the time when we're enjoying the small window between our children leaving home and having our parents come live with us.

Kim Basinger Tells How Bitter Alec Baldwin Divorce Affected Her Parenting

I'm fast approaching 50 and quite frankly cannot imagine anything worse than doing the whole baby/sleep deprivation thing at my age.  I can barely even manage two consecutive nights out nowadays so definitely would not be able to rouse myself for car pooling and team coaching every weekend. Nor do I think I'd being able to summon the energy to put up with a foul teenager when I'm in my sixties.

But hey ho, that's just me.

Courtney Stodden’s Mom Showcases Her Deplorable Parenting Skills

I guess raising a child when you're older is a little different when you are a rich and famous celebrity—let's face it, it's unlikely Janet Jackson will be rendered unable to string a sentence together because she's been up for all night, and I don't really see her being the one doing the school run twice a day.

Well however Janet's parenthood pans out, I wish her well—she is definitely not alone in the world of celebrity mothers who had children when they were a little more advanced in years.

Singer Nick Carter is a dad after his wife Lauren Kitt Carter gave birth to a baby boy yesterday.

ET report that their son, who they have named Odin Reign Carter, arrived after a 30 hour labor and water birth at their home in Hidden Hills (boy must mommy be exhausted!).

Stupidest Celebrity Baby Names Of 2015

The couple had celebrated the impending arrival a few weeks ago with a Game of Thrones inspired baby shower where they were joined by band members Kevin Richardson and AJ McLean as well as other close friends.

The new parents have been eagerly awaiting the new addition to their family and keeping their fans up to date on their social media. 36 year old Nick has been on tour this year following a successful run on Dancing With The Stars in November—he actually found out that he was expecting a son during a live show when he opened a box of blue balloons!

‘Backstreet Thug’ Nick Carter Sued For Choking A Bouncer

Baby Carter's name is suitably celebrityesque. Odin is the strong powerful name of the supreme Norse god of art, culture, wisdom and law—who was handsome, charming and eloquent. Quite a lot for the little fella to live up to!

As for his middle name...was it Kardashian inspired perhaps?  Kourtney's third child is named Reign—maybe Mr & Mrs Carter are Keeping Up With the Kardashian fans!
