Why is J. Lo tweeting photos of her and Chris Brown hanging out together? And what did Tony Bennett say about Amy Winehouse that was so oddly flattering? Plus, why is Wiz Khalifa really into poop? in today’s First Dibs.
Send your congratulations to Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa! They had their baby boy three days ago and his name is Sebastian Thomaz. Wiz gave the world a heads up by tweeting, “Happy Birthday Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz!!! Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world.” Now Amber’s sharing snippets of their son’s first few days on instagram, sharing his first picture, as you can see on the left, writing, “Best daddy ever …. Up with the baby so Muva can go back to sleep.” What’s even cooler than Wiz’s patterned pink hoodie is little Sebastian’s floral arrangement from his superstar Uncle, Sean “Diddy” Combs. The rapper mogul sent over a profusion of flowers, seen in the picture on the right, and Amber thanked him by writing, “Sebastian says “Thanks Uncle Diddy!” Lol iamdiddy they are beautiful thank u so much. Hugs.” Imagine what little Sebastian will get on his first birthday!

There is so much weird going on in this story, guys. First of all, if you watch the video above, apparently the guys behind the camera bought Amber Rose ice cream to tempt her to talk to them — making it feel like she’s a zoo animal they’re tempting to come to the fence to say hi. Not that we’d be able to refuse Ninja Turtles ice cream either. So then, as the eight-months pregnant model accepts their treat, she says, “My husband loves Ninja Turtles!” And immediately TMZ explodes in a round of speculation about when and where Amber and Wiz Khalifa eloped.
Well, maybe they did legally tie the knot — as Hollywood Life points out, Wiz told Hot 97 last year that he and Amber wanted to make things legal before their son was born, but then have a real wedding afterwards, when she can fit into a dress and drink. Or maybe she’s just messing with them. Or maybe using a figure of speech, calling him her husband for fun, particularly in the context of something silly like TMNT.
Either way, we are going to go steal Amber’s wardrobe now. That “Kapow!” dress is way cuter than anything we’ve ever seen in the maternity department. As is this cute dress (and silly hat) she wore at her East Coast baby shower. (Here’s the one from her L.A. shower.)
You know we’ve been obsessed with Amber Rose’s adorable baby bump photos for months, but the pics she posted this weekend from her baby shower blew the rest away. Not only is she still incredibly cute for someone in her eighth month of pregnancy, but she is rocking a dress that we immediately want. It’s part of designer Jeremy Scott’s Adidas Originals collection, shown above on the runway. The most remarkable thing is how much better it looks on preggo Amber than on the skinny model.
Also great is this pic of Amber and Wiz Khalifa opening presents together.
Jessica Simpson confirmed the pregnancy we pretty much all knew about already with a tweet yesterday that read, “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” accompanying a deadly cute photo of 7-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew in front of the words “Big Sis” written in the sand. It by far surpasses Simpson’s “Mummy” tweet from last Halloween, and also makes us really wish she’d been able to break this news herself, rather than some “friend” who sold the story to Us weeks ago.
UPDATE: Weight Watchers also let Jessica announce her new pregnancy in a 30-second ad, released today. “Being healthy has become a part of who I am, which is great timing, because I’m having another baby,” she says. (WW made sure to add a printed message on the ad that says, “Pregnant women are not eligible to join Weight Watchers. Jessica has stopped following the plan and intends to return after she gives birth.”)
The announcement made us think back to all the other varied ways in which celebrity moms announced their big news to the world in 2012. Here are some of our favorites:
Snooki’s “OMG! I’m Pregnant!” Us Weekly Headline: This is another one we pretty much already knew about before the story was published, but the fact that we could totally hear Snooki’s voice as we read that headline made it more unique than your typical pregnancy story sold to a tabloid.
Amber Rose Follows Beyonce’s Example: Following a couple of weeks of speculation, Amber accompanied Wiz Khalifa to the MTV VMAs this year in a lacy skintight gown and caressed her little bump on the red carpet, leaving no more doubt about their big news. Months later, it looked like Jenna Dewan-Tatum was doing the same red-carpet reveal in her flowy princess gown at VH1 DIVAS, but she and Channing Tatum decided to let us guess for a few more hours before going the typical publicist-to-magazine route.
The prohibitionists out there won’t agree with us, but we think Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose sound like they’re going to be the most level-headed parents of their son when he’s born in a couple of months. When E! asked the green-minded rapper and his model fiancee what they plan to teach Junior about marijuana, they responded quite thoughtfully:
“I’m not going to be smoking right there over the baby, because smoke in general and being high is not good for a kid,” Khalifa said. “None of that. But definitely he’s going to know what it is — and he’ll know the difference between being a child and not being able to use it and being an adult and knowing how to use it.”
Amber added, “It’s just like alcohol, basically. That’s how I feel about it, you know. When you’re a kid, you know that you’re not supposed to drink alcohol, that it’s for adults and that’s it. Our son is just going to know that daddy likes to smoke.”
That sounds about right in a world where recreational weed consumption has just been legalized in Washington and Colorado, and daddy writes songs about the substance practically on a daily basis. Better to teach responsibility than hypocrisy (’cause face it, did that work out for YOUR parents?).

Seriously, I can’t be the only one who feels this way: Every time Amber Rose posts a new photo of her pregnant self, I feel all warm and fuzzy about the world. There’s something about her sweet demeanor and willingness to bare all — without selling it to a tabloid — that makes me excited for her and her impending motherhood. Even before she got pregnant, she was a model whose normal body didn’t make women feel bad about their own, and now, as she shows off her huge bump and enhanced curves, she’s also making me embrace my own. She’s posted the above two pics in the past few days, promising that in the naked-seeming one, she’s actually wearing shorts, “but my belly is so big u can’t see them Lol.” You want heart-melting instead of revealing? Peep the photo of Wiz Khalifa after he apparently fell asleep caressing his fiance’s belly. Prepare yourself for a lot more “aww”-ing as you browse through the gallery below.

There’s all sorts of distressing news concerning Wiz Khalifa circulating. Last week, a woman filed a hit-and-run case with the LAPD alleging that Wiz drove right into her car and then bolted from the scene. Apparently, the women in question was actually working with him on a music video and the supposed incident happened around midnight after everything shut down for the day. Even though Wiz isn’t talking, TMZ has photographs of his car — a blue 1969 Chevy Chevelle — which looks wrecked! Does this confirm the story? Sources are now whispering that he actually smashed into not one, but two cars, including a Lexus. Something to do with the car that got hit careening into another car (driven by the woman who has filed the case) causing it damage. We won’t know what happened for certain until Wiz starts talking, which we think he should start doing stat, because the LAPD’s now asking the questions and they’ll get answers one way or the other. If this really was his fault, he should come clean now and get it over with. He’s got too much at stake in his personal life, with fiance, Amber Rose being pregnant with their first child, for him to get into trouble like this.

After weeks of speculation, at last comes the moment we’ve been waiting for … and waiting for … Amber Rose was photographed with fiance Wiz Khalifa caressing a very obvi baby bump on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards. We’d heard she was waiting to announce her pregnancy Beyonce style and there you have it.
Just last week, the rumors began to fly about the new little family. “Amber and Wiz unexpectedly got pregnant, but they’re really happy to be starting a family together,” a source told Radar. “Amber’s already had to make some big lifestyle changes, like not smoking cigarettes anymore. As a model she’s used to having a thin waist, so this is going to be an adjustment for her.”
Well, now that we’re seeing the bump, we think she’s got nothing to worry about — she looks cuter than ever. (And I’m not just saying that because I just started showing off my own bump this week too. Just following the trend, y’all!)

Good news to report. The words on the interwebs is that Amber Rose is pregnant with fiance, Wiz Khalifa‘s first baby and is allegedly due in January! Remember how Wiz tweeted that photograph of Amber’s engagement ring? Well now, their wedding may be bumped up to October as well. Apparently, this was a completely unplanned pregnancy but the couple are reportedly extremely happy to become parents. Amber is already preparing herself for the massive change in their lifestyle and has quit smoking. A source has told Radaronline, “Amber and Wiz unexpectedly got pregnant, but they’re really happy to be starting a family together. Amber’s already had to make some big lifestyle changes, like not smoking cigarettes anymore. As a model she’s used to having a thin waist, so this is going to be an adjustment for her.” Mediatakeout was the first to report the news and the due date, but the couple’s reps have not responded just yet. Which also means they haven’t issued a denial just yet. That makes us think that this one’s spot-on because normally when something’s completely false, there’s always a spokesperson pouncing on the news, negating it. We’re waiting for some official statements but just in case, may we offer our congratulations to the happy couple!
