Remember when celebrities were allowed to look pregnant? Exactly, you probably don’t. Thanks to the glammed-up moms-to-be of the last decade, like Jenna Dewan Tatum, Amber Rose, Kelly Rowland, and Kim and Kourtney of the Kalifornia Kardashians, pregnancy is no longer an excuse to let yourself go.
Given that her first kid’s name is Ryder, we had our fingers crossed that Kate Hudson’s baby name for her new son would be something hard-core like Harlon or Jaxx or Gunnar.

Nearly a week after the couple gave birth in L.A. last Saturday, proud pop Matthew Bellamy officially announced their baby’s name: Bingham Hawn Bellamy. “So happy!
