The world waits and twitters for Jessica Simpson’s baby

The world waits and twitters for Jessica Simpson's baby0429You’d think the baby was royal with all the attention it’s getting, nevertheless, the world is waiting in bated breath for the arrival of Jessica Simpson’s bundle of joy.

A couple days ago, the Fashion Star host managed to post a video on her official website of her baby shower that took place in mid March but, other than that, Jessica has been missing in action the last few weeks and the twitter nation is in a stir. Both pop star Katy Perry and comedian Chelsea Handler sounded off on the popular social network site in regards to the baby’s late, yet eminent, arrival.

Katy tweeted, “Has Jessica Simpson had that baby yet?! I’m getting anxious.”

And Chelsea followed with, “’How has jessica simpson still not given birth to this baby? I’m getting frightened.”

Sources speculate that the baby could be due the first week of May so there is no reason to worry – although we have a feeling Chelsea was joking!

It must be nice to have so many people concerned. What do you think? Will Jessica have the baby this week or will we see her step out yet again with her signature glow and flowy dress?

Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about postpartum depression

Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about postpartum depression 0428Even seemingly perfect, Gwyneth Paltrow, has felt less than adequate as a mother.

Speaking on the TV show, The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet, Gwyneth described the postpartum depression she felt after giving birth to her son Moses, and the stark difference it was from her first experience with daughter, Apple.

“I couldn’t connect with my son the way that I had with my daughter and I couldn’t understand why.  I couldn’t connect to anyone. I felt like a zombie. I felt very detached. I just didn’t know what was wrong with me. I couldn’t figure it out. It never occurred to me.”

She said it took her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, to introduce her to the idea that she might be suffering from postpartum depression.

“My husband actually said, ‘Something’s wrong. I think you have postnatal depression.’ I was mortified. ‘No I don’t!’ And then I started researching what it was and the symptoms and I was like, ‘Oh, yes I do’.”

Gwyneth goes on to explain that she felt disappointment and shame in herself at first but soon realized that the depression didn’t mean she was a bad mother. She says that’s a good lesson for mothers out there who are trying to do it all.

“I never understand why mothers judge other mothers, like, ‘What do you mean you didn’t breastfeed? What do you mean you didn’t do this?’ It’s like, ‘Can’t we all just be on each other’s side?’ It’s so hard anyway. Can’t we all help each other get through it?”

Jennifer Garner Debuts Post Baby BodyJennifer Garner stepped out for the first time last night since welcoming baby Samuel in February.  The 40-year-old actress and mom of three showed off her stunning post-pregnancy body in a nude, Dolce & Gabbana mini-dress, while attending Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures CinemaCon in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace.   She paired the look with a few baubles by David Web and Nicholas Kirkwood wedge heels.

Garner was there promoting her new flick, “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”, which hits theaters in August.  Later in the evening Jennifer was also awarded with CinemaCon’s Female Actress of the Year award.

Victoria Beckham And Daughter Harper Make A Stylish Pair

Victoria Beckham And Daughter Harper Make A Stylish Pair

Victoria Beckham is a super stylish Mother of four. Daughter Harper Beckham has inherited the fashion forward gene so the pair  looked picture perfect when they stepped out in Beijing this week. The former Posh Spice also made walking in those uber-high boots while carrying  a young one look effortless!

Of course Mom looked like she’d just stepped off the runway at a fashion show, but Harper was also tres chic. The 9 month old was wearing a cute floral top, pastel colored jeans and the smallest pair of Converse I’ve ever seen. The outfit was topped off with a bow in the hair. I think Victoria spends as much time on her daughter’s outfits as her own. It’s fashion first in this family.

The fashion designer was in Beijing to launch the Victoria Beckham limited edition Range Rover. Yes, this busy Mom also has time to design clothes and cars. It was a girls only trip. Husband David Beckham and their three sons Brooklyn Beckham, Romeo Beckham and Cruz Beckham were home in America. So the pair had plenty of Mother-daughter time.

Victoria has made no secret of the fact motherhood and working can be a struggle but she told WWD she’s very hands on when it comes to her children ‘There are quite a few video conferences at 5 a.m. with me in my dressing gown, holding baby. For me it’s no different than it is for a lot of women out there. It’s like juggling glass balls. I love it.’ Good on you Victoria!

Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Mini Collection Just Getting Started

Gwen Stefani Harajuku Collection

Last fall Gwen Stefani launched her first Harajuku Mini for Target collection and apparently it did pretty well, because more designs are on their way. The designs are based on Japanese inspiration or take after authentic Japanese children’s clothing.

“We’ve got new collections coming and coming and coming,” the mom of two recently told InStyle while attending the Milk + Bookies celebration with oldest son, Kingston.

The No Doubt front woman and super busy mother of two, has long been known for her creativity.  She first made her unique foray into the adult fashion world with the L.A.M.B. line.  When asked which line she prefers, Stefani had this to say:

“I love to do both (lines). “I really enjoy doing the children’s right now probably because it’s new.”

Have you seen Stefani’s designs online or at your local Target?  Have you bought them for your child?   Would you?   Tell us what you think in the comments below!

Alicia Silverstone Takes 11 Month Old Son To Coachella

Alicia Silverstone Takes 11 Month Old Son To Coachella

Lots of famous faces attended the Coachella Music festival in California over the weekend. We spotted Alicia Silverstone enjoying the music with her husband Christopher Jarecki and 11 month old son Bear Blu. Bear was wearing the cutest little headphones to cover his young ears!

Mom held onto Bear for some of the time then Dad stepped in. He put his son in a sling and carried him around the grounds. Bear is getting into music at a very young age. I wonder which band he enjoyed the most? Did he rock out to Radiohead or Gotye? His parents were definitely enjoying the day out.

The Clueless star recently made headlines for her baby feeding practices. The 35 year old was taken to task by many for pre-chewing her young son’s food. A video of her doing it went viral. Alicia hit back saying People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years. It’s a weaning process. Honestly, when I posted the video I was not thinking, so maybe I was like Cher! I think it’s adorable and it makes me laugh every time he does it. He attacks my mouth and I think it’s adorable. He also knows how to use his hands and he also eats regular food so when babies are weaning, he still breastfeeds. Some people think that’s disgusting too which is insane.’

The actress will soon be appearing on our television screens. She’ll be a guest star on an upcoming episode of Suburgatory. She co-stars with one time big screen pal Jeremy Sisto.
