What’s the best present anyone could receive this holiday season? Did you say a precious newborn baby? Well Scandalist is here to provide you with a holiday bundle of joy without all of the sweat and gut wrenching pain usually required to get one. Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber welcomed their newborn Samuel Kai Schreiber into the bitter cold New York City air earlier today. Here are some exclusive photos of the perfect family.
After a year that started off in chaos, Britney Spears’ 2008 is coming to a close with a super cute holiday card. Brit posed with sons Jayden James and Sean Preston in front of the Christmas tree to send holiday wishes to all her family and friends. Sam Lutfi most likely did not get one in his mailbox.

When Pete Wentz is getting ready to leave the house to go to a radio interview, Ashlee clearly needs to prep him a bit more. First, he told Howard Stern all the dirty details of their sex life and yesterday on SIRIUS The Morning Mash Up, Pete decided to talk about – yuck- Ashlee’s breast milk.
Pete described the taste of his wife’s breast milk as “soury” and “weird.” His son Bronx Mowgli, however, is luckily a bigger fan. “The baby loves it, it’s the only thing he’s had a chance to have,” Pete said.
Pete also describes Ashlee’s breastfeeding as a “luxury” and says that she is losing weight “easier” than he is because she gets to breastfeed. Pete says he gained 10 pounds during Ashlee’s pregnancy and is working it off by “working out a little bit, trying.” [Source: Us Weekly; Photo: Getty Images]
Apparently Sarah Palin‘s dad is a big blabbermouth, as he revealed to some site called Grandparents.com that his granddaughter, Bristol, is having a baby boy. Cuteness! We kinda miss the Palins for all their family drama – we hope the Governor threw some baby clothes for her grandson into that pile of crap she bought for thousands at Saks this summer!
Bristol is due on December 20th, which is just two days away! We can’t wait for the Alaska’s Baby of the Year to be born. Will Bristol follow in her parents’ footsteps and name it something weird, or will she define herself as a more traditional Palin? We’d guess her tot’s name will put Bronx Mowgli Wentz to shame. Fingers crossed, of course. [NYP. Getty Images]
Time magazine got in on the “Why the eff did you name your kid that” party recently, and asked Pete Wentz why he and Ashlee Simpson ruined their newborn’s life with the name Bronx Mowgli. Pete vaguely defended his choice, and then pretended to know all about the boroughs even though he lives across the country:
“It comes back to a very specific story between me and my wife. But I would just like to say that it wasn’t because either of us were trying to give our son street cred. At the end of the day we like the name. Brooklyn gets a lot of love. It’s time for the Bronx to get a little bit of love too.”
If Pete really wanted to give a borough some love, he would have named his son Staten Island. Or how about Jersey? There’s a place that could use some fans. Apparently Pete’s avoided absorbing pop culture over the years, because the Bronx has gotten a whole lotta shout outs from, you know, the amazing people who have actually lived there. We’ve got a growing list below that Pete and Ash should probably check out. Perhaps they should do a little research before they name their second kid?
Famous People Reppin’ The Bronx – For Real

We expect our celebrities to behave in the appropriate manner — to be just this side of crazy, prone to bouts of deluded self-importance, have great hair and most importantly, think outside the box for names when it comes to having kids. In the last couple of years, Suri, Harlow, Shiloh and of course, recent arrival Bronx Mowgli have all lived up to our highest expectations. But sadly, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have failed in this quest with their second son, who arrived Saturday December 13. He’s called Samuel.
Samuel Kai Schreiber. Don’t get us wrong, we think it’s a lovely, classic name, but how on earth do they expect him to fit into Young Hollywood’s Class of 2025 with that name? It’s as if they want him to grow up normally or something. [Photo: WireImage]
The last few months have seen a slew of rumors that their marriage is nothing but a “business arrangement” so now of course British uber-boobed-celeb Katie Price and husband Peter Andre are laying those tales to rest in a tried-and-tested way. Why, planning on having another baby, of course! In his weekly column for New! magazine, Pete “writes” that he’d love to add a fourth tot to their family this Christmas (um, think you might have to wait a little longer than that with the best will in the world, but hey).
“I’d love another baby for Christmas! Kate’s got the Flora London Marathon next April and I’ve got the album hopefully coming out in May, so it’d be after that.”
Ahh, how romantic. Ahem. Actually, those months might be even more crammed than usual after Katie revealed her plans (also in a magazine -hey, these two don’t communicate any other way) to pose nude in Playboy once again.
“I’d love to do Playboy. Although I just saw Dita Von Teese‘s cover and it’s cr*p. The woman is rank. It’s not my cup of tea that she’s so pale,” she told OK! magazine. Charming, as ever – and Dita can add another celeb to her list of haters, as well as her image-stealer Evan Rachel Wood. But we know who’s side we’re on. [Photo: Getty Images]
Did we laugh too soon? Pete Wentz ran to his blog last night to dismiss rumors that no one wants to buy pictures of a baby named Bronx Mowgli. According to him, he didn’t even put them up for sale (perhaps, but did Papa Joe?). From his post, titled, “ring, ring, it’s the truth calling” (sounds like a Fall Out Boy song title):
About baby pics gossip: truth is like every celeb couple we were offered mounds and mounds of money by mags from here to Guam to pimp out the baby. We just don’t want to go down that road with him.
We are not placing judgment on those that do as they often use the money in a very charitable way. However, we have made the decision to not sell Bronx’s baby pictures right now. We understand that like other celebrities have said, “there is a bounty on our heads” for these pictures. There is a danger when there are cameras being held over walls and into our backyard. We are followed day and night and that was fine when it was us but we are going to do our best to shelter Bronx from that as much as possible.
…ps trust me he’s cute. he looks like his mommy.
So let’s get this straight: to protect your child from overzealous photographers, you’re going to deny us staged photos? Won’t the paps be more aggressive now that a good look at the kid will be worth something? Maybe you should let Papa Joe do the thinking, Pete.
Mariah Carey is really teasing us with a million-and-one signs she’s up the spout APART from a verbal confirmation that she is indeed carrying a mini-Mimi. She’s refused the booze on national TV, cheered her way out of an ob/gyn appointment, and has now scrapped plans for a tour next year. Because, clearly, she’d be much too pregnant by that time. Although there’s been no word yet, her spokesperson is quoted as saying, “I have not been told she’s pregnant.” Which is not even really denying it AT ALL.
We wish that Mimi would break the good news publicly before Christmas, so we can while away those long hours with the family inventing some “creative” baby names for Mrs Cannon to take inspiration from. Yaysers! [Source: The Sun, Photo: WireImage]
All due to respect to Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Kingston Rossdale, Suri Cruise and Valentina Pinnault, but Matilda Ledger is making us regret not nominating her Cutest Kid Of ’08 in the Scandalist Awards. The tricycle! That hat! The cat-ears! The dangling flaps! Her smile! It’s just too much—that kid is cuter than a Christmas special. Matilda wuz robbed!
