Everybody Loves a New Baby – Especially a Royal Heir!

Everybody Loves a New Baby - Especially a Royal Heir!

Remember when Kate Middleton’s pregnancy was first confirmed? It was like this shocking, happy bit of news. Royal watchers were almost shocked to hear that it was true, after wishing it to happen since the minute Kate and Prince William married.  Fans have watched the Duchess gain minimal weight and dress her bump in a decidedly modern style. For some reason we care to know that Queen Elizabeth has no say in the nursery design and people are placing bets on all the baby stats. If you happen to pick the right day, time, weight and gender you could win some cold, hard cash.

Why do we care so much? Ironically when Kim Kardashian gave birth to Nori a few weeks ago everyone wanted details and this might be the first time that Kris Jenner completely blew it. No photos, nothing from Kim or Kanye. At first the silence was nice, it looked like maybe Kim was learning to value something besides her own press. But guess what, after about two weeks the novelty wore off and we kind of don’t care any more. All attention is on the next royal-to-be.… [read more]

First Baby Born From New IVF Screening Technique

First Baby Born From New IVF Screening Technique

Marybeth Scheidts, 36, and her 41-year-old husband, David Levy, had tried for five years to have a baby before she became pregnant. Artificial insemination failed three times and more genetic testing would have cost the couple at least $6,000. Instead they were offered a spot in a clinical trial that would give them access to the next generation sequencing and they jumped at the opportunity.  It’s a good thing that they did too because the trial was a success for them and brought 7-week old Connor Levy into their lives. The baby, born May 18th in Philadelphia is the first to be born out of this new IVF screening process.

Last Monday Dagan Wells presented his findings at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology’s yearly meeting. Wells is a researcher at the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at the University of Oxford. He  created the technique, which is used on women undergoing IVF as  It helps detect abnormalities in an embryo before it’s transferred to the uterus.  Wells also believes that the screening may cut the number of women who miscarry after IVF almost in half.

Isla Fisher Takes Her Daughters Elula & Olive Shopping for Toys (PHOTOS)

The Great Gatsby actress Isla Fisher took her adorable daughters three-year-old Elula and five-year-old Olive shopping at Toys-R-Us in Los Angeles, California on July 8, 2013.  Olive and Elula looked super excited to be treated to a shopping spree with Mommy.  Isla was dressed casually and had a hat covering her fair skin.  She did not want to get a sunburn.  The girls also covered up from the sun.

Daddy Sacha Baron Cohen was no where to be seen.  Isla and Sasha have been married  since 2010 and Isla recently dished on why she married Sacha.  She said, “We both have a similar sense of humour or I wouldn’t have married him. He was the reason I got into comedy because I was going for a lot of dramatic roles and getting frustrated when I didn’t get them.”  She added: “And Sacha said, “You’re the funniest person I know. You should be doing comedy.”

Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Want To Have A Lot Of Children

Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Want To Have A Lot Of Children

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are still going strong, surprising most people who didn’t expect their relationship to last longer than a year. They’ve managed to stay off the public radar for most of the past year, but now that Ryan is promoting his new movie R.I.P.D., the promotional campaign has kicked into high gear. Ryan covers the latest issue of Details Magazine, and talks about babies – because what sells better than baby talk?

First, Ryan is asked about his relationship with Blake, which he’s hesitant to discuss. He simply states, I understand the climate we live in and why people are curious. But it’s just tough and almost emotionally violent—for anyone, I think—to see your personal life summarized in a sentence.”

Zara Phillips Is Expecting Her First Child - Buckingham Palace Confirms

Zara Phillips is expecting her first child to rugby player Mike Tindall, Buckingham Palace has confirmed. The two have been keeping their pregnancy quiet for quite some time now,  Zara is  believed to be in her third month.  I guess no one noticed because  everyone has been so caught up with Kate Middleton‘s pregnancy.

Whatever the case, a statement has been released by the Queen’s secretary earlier this morning, which stated that the entire Royal Family is over the moon to welcome another baby into the family. “Mr and Mrs Mike Tindall are very pleased to announce that Zara Tindall is expecting a baby in the New Year.” Sources say Mike and Phillips will welcome their baby sometime during January-February, but this has not been confirmed as of yet.
