In The News
Celebrity Couples and Their Babies We Love
Admit it. You were a part of the collective awe that rang out after pop sensation Beyonce rubbed her belly at the MTV VMAs. News of Beyonce’s baby bump set a twitter world record at 8, 868. Oh, and that’s per second. In a world where we barely know our neighbors' names the celebrity has become our new neighbor.
We often see celebrity couples and their babies more than our friends albeit from a TV screen or pop culture magazine. And oh, the cooler talk, phone calls and yes twitter opinions that we air about the celebrity couples that we like and the ones that we sometimes question. And we do talk about everything from how cute their kids are to celebrity baby names including trying to pronounce or remember the names when their kid count goes beyond one hand.
It’s pretty safe to say that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby will get plenty o’love from Moms around the country based on the web sensation on the mere news of their expectant child. And I’ll be one of them showing the love. And I will admit it. It’s hard not to love Angelina Jolie’s love for children. The Brangelina Bunch is now a solid half dozen. Here’s her brood by name: Maddox, Angelina’s oldest, who was adopted when she was still with Billy Bob Thornton. Her children with Brad Pitt began when they adopted daughter, Zahara. Angelina then became pregnant with daughter Shiloh...who is Pitt's biological daughter. A few months later, they adopted son, Pax. Angelina completed the half dozen when she gave birth to twins Vivienne and Knox. That house has gotta be loud.
Then there is Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s cutie Suri. She’s must have graced the cover of more magazines than anybody under the age of 5 by now. First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama’s children Malia and Sasha although not seen as much are a joy to follow and to imagine life in the Whitehouse through the eyes of a child. The beautiful Beckhams finally added a girl to their brood of boys named Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo. The black and white pictures that Victoria Beckham posted on Twitter of baby girl Harper with daddy David were nothing short of adorable.
