Okay…Who’s Going To Tell Snooki That’s Not A Real Baby?

One, two, three, not it! We are not about to break it to Snooki that the infant she is cheerfully carting around Jersey City this week is just a lump of molded plastic, not her very own tiny ShortnTan (despite what the life-like peeing function might suggest). Damn the invention of the Cabbage Patch doll! Damn it right to hell! Not that JWoww is helping any; the Jersey Shore costar had her own bundle of store-bought joy as the two mommy-ed it up for the cameras. So we guess you have to tell her, too. Yes, you! Didn’t we say “not it” first? The defense rests!

We’re kidding, of course. We know Nicole and Jenni are just using the world as their home ec class for the benefit of their upcoming spin-off. They’re practicing how to get ready for Snooki’s newborn: picking out a stroller, purchasing a wardrobe of baby clothes, introducing it to leopard print. We completely understand. It’s probably hard to make scintillating TV out of footage of Snooki picking out a douala, Googling “meconium” (note: do not Google meconium) and rubbing cocoa butter on her abdomen to reduce stretch marks. Except now that we typed out those scenarios…that is all we want to see.

We can only imagine the whole Duff clan is present at the hospital, and can’t wait for Hil’s sister Haylie to whip up some baby food recipes. She’s got an awesome food blog called Real Girl’s Kitchen, doncha know? Those Duffs don’t mess around with their multi-talented-ness. We can’t wait to see what superpowers little Luca possesses!

Charlize Theron Gushes About “Amazing” New Motherhood, Epic Villainry

Charlize Theron’s new baby Jackson was just announced to the world on Wednesday, but it seems like Theron already has the parenting thing down pat. As for the key to motherhood with her newly adopted 4-month-old son, Charlize gave a shout-out to tightly-wrapped baby blankets on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS FM show this morning. “I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling’s pretty amazing,” the Academy Award-winng actress mused. “It sort of looks a bit like a straightjacket — you’re like, ‘Is this child abuse?’ — but for some reason they just love it.” We’d love it if Charlize Theron swaddled us too! Oh god…did we just type that out loud?

Raved Charlize, “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations. Everyone’s just been so lovely — it’s been really nice.” That being said, it’s not just in the motherhood arena that the Snow White and The Huntsman actress has been killing it as of late. “She can level you,” Kristen Stewart boasted to MTV  about her costar in their upcoming fantasy epic. “Around the time I was negotiating to do this, the wheel starts to turn…I was watching television one night and The Shining came on,” Theron explained to Seacrest about her evil queen role. “I was just like, ‘Oh my God, that’s it, she’s Jack Nicholson in The Shining.’ Locked in her hotel castle going slowly crazy.” Charlize gets to be a good mom and a vengeful iconic villain? It’s every little girl’s dream come true!

Charlize Theron Becomes Awesome Mom To Adopted Baby Boy Jackson

Charlize Theron is already an excellent actress, model and paragon of human attractiveness. Now she can proudly add “Mom” to her long list of “Things I Am The Most Awesome At,” seeing as how The Snow White and the Huntsman star announced today that she has “adopted a child.” According to the statement her rep gave People, “She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson.” We can’t wait until Theron’s son is old enough to see her killing it in Young Adult! Or Arrested Development! Or Monster! Oh wait…maybe not Monster until much, much later. Or never. In the meantime, who didn’t love Mighty Joe Young? Not us, that’s for sure!

With the arrival of her first child Theron joins the long, illustrious list of A-listers who have adopted adorable baboos, including but not limited to: Mariska Hartigay, Sandra Bullock, Madonna, Katherine Heigl and, of course, one Ms. Angelina Jolie. While having baby friends is clearly an important life goal for the currently unattached actress, getting married currently is not. “I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships,” Theron told Piers Morgan last year. “The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.” Though, of course, if she decides to get hitched, Charlize will obviously be the best at it. In the meantime, congratulations to you, girl! And to tiny Jackson!

James Van Der Beek Welcomes Baby Son Into The World Via Twitter

James Van Der Beek announced his wife’s pregnancy with a tweet back in October; why wouldn’t he reveal the arrival of his new baby the same way? “Had my first son this morning… well, actually, my wife had him. I just caught him. Wow. Heart expanding way faster than my brain…,” the Beek gushed on Twitter this afternoon. “If you could bottle up and distribute this feeling, I swear there’d be no more war. #fatherhood.” If anyone could sum up the experience of welcoming a new baby into the family in 140 characters, apparently it’s Dawson! #squee #adorbs.org.

The Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 star and his wife Kimberly are also parents to daughter Olivia, who was born in September 2010. How did they announce their first child’s arrival? We think you know the answer to that. “Had the blessing of becoming a father over the weekend. Couldn’t come close to describing this bliss even if I had 140 million characters,” James tweeted at the time. “I apologize in advance for any obnoxiously precious new-dad tweets that may follow. I’m under her spell.” With every new little bundle of joy, we get closer and closer to a Van Der Beek live-tweeted labor and delivery. Fingers crossed for a baby Number 3!

Sienna Miller: Discussing Pregnancy Would “Defeat The Point,” Does It Anyway

Sienna Miller wants to talk about her impending baby times with alleged fiance Tom Sturridge. It’s just that doing so might have devastating consequences. We guess? “I’m in my second trimester, so I’m I-can-talk-about-it pregnant,” the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra star told British Vogue in their April issue. “Even though I’m under strict instructions not to say anything as it would completely defeat the point of everything I’ve tried to achieve in the last eight years.” Wow, what could Sienna possibly say about her fetus that would completely destroy her life all the way back to 2004? Is she actually pregnant with government secrets? Or some kind of adorable baby time machine?

Of course, we completely understand if Sienna wants to keep the more intimate details to herself; being among the numerous celebrities whose phones were hacked by the now-defunct U.K. tabloid New Of The World would make anyone reticent to let the media into their lives. So what can Miller say about her baby that wouldn’t put everything dear to her at risk? “I’m feeling fine,” the actress laughs. “It’s all progressing nicely and it’s very exciting.” Oh no, the world as we know it is being ripped asunder! Quickly, Sienna! To the adorable baby time machine!

Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Name Their Newborn Son

It’s a boy and he already has a name! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner had their third baby earlier this week, on February 27, in Santa Monica. He joins older sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, who is 3. Mom and Dad are having them like clockwork every three years, huh? We couldn’t wait to hear what they would name their first son, and we had a feeling it was going to be something charming and old-world, just like their daughters’ names. We were right. Ben announced on his Facebook page, “We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck.” We also reckon that Ben is rather happy about the gender ratio evening out in the house. Congratulations to all of them. They’re the cutest family in Hollywood!

Uma Thurman Pregnant With Third Badass Child

We know that Uma Thurman isn’t just a carbon copy of the vengeful mom she played in Kill Bill. We’re just saying if she’s even 1/16 as protective as Beatrix Kiddo, the actress’s new bundle of joy is in safe hands. Safe yet deadly hands.

People confirmed today that the Bel Ami actress is expecting her third child; Baby Thurman will join tween siblings Maya and Levon from Thurman’s marriage to Ethan Hawke, which ended in 2004. Ethan also happened to welcome his own baby girl Indiana Hawke with wife Ryan this past August, though we can’t imagine his infant will be nearly as handy with a katana. Uma’s new baby will be her first with financier boyfriend Arpad Busson, who better be up for midnight diaper duty unless he wants to experience the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. The choice is his to make, really.

Molly Sims is known in part for looking really, really, ridiculously good in a bikini, but there’s only so many times you can rock a set of chiseled abs without wanting to mix it up. Say hello to Molly’s newest accessory! “I bought the belly ball right here,” the Sports Illustrated model and Yes Man actress laughed of her latest adornment. “He’s here. She’s here. We don’t know! Can you guess?”

It’s not just producer husband Scott Stuber, however, who can’t tear himself a way from Molly’s midsection; perfect strangers feel more than comfortable manhandling her bump. “It’s a little weird, I’m not going to lie,” Sims laughs. “But people mean well by it, and also I think it gives good energy.” An accessory that makes you look as good as Sims and makes you okay with people pawing at your stomach? Put our names on the waiting list immediately.
