Celebrity Birth Announcement: Shayne Lamas

It just occurred to me that I forgot to post this last week. On 11/11/11, Shayne and her husband Nik welcomed a daughter. Her name is Press [yes, really] Dahl Lamas-Richie.
In September, Shayne revealed the sex and name of their baby to E Online, explaining how they decided on the name Press:

"Her name came to us at the beginning of my pregnancy, because she was getting so much press... It started as a joke, her nickname was ‘Press Baby,' but when we found out it was a girl, suddenly that was her name—her name was going to be Press! I think Press is a beautiful name, we're elated, little princess Press!"
  Press' middle name is Dahl, the same as Shayne's, after her great-grandmother [Lorenzo Lamas' mother] Arlene Dahl. 

It's certainly an odd name but somehow it's growing on me. Anyway, congratulations to them!

Jessica Simpson Birthing at Home?

While I'm inclined to doubt this rumor, I couldn't help but get excited about reports that Jessica Simpson is planning a home birth. The National Enquirer [I know...] has said that after watching Ricki Lake's documentary The Business of Being Born -which I recommend to anyone considering a future pregnancy- Jessica is preparing to deliver her baby naturally at her home in Los Angeles.
It doesn't seem all that likely and The National Enquirer isn't exactly the most reputable source but they have been right about things before. The story also states that Jessica and her fiancé Eric Johnson plan to raise the baby as a vegan. He is vegan and she has spoken about her venture into an animal-free diet since they've been together.

In any case, I'm pleasantly surprised to hear that she seems to be taking this much more seriously than most people would expect.

Officially Expecting: Jessica Simpson

I'm not sure why this isn't a bigger deal [possibly because Kim Kardashian decided to announce the end of her 2-month marriage on the same day?], but Jessica Simpson finally confirmed today that she is in fact pregnant with her first child. 
On her website, she posted the above photo with the caption, "It's true! I am going to be a mummy!" and while that's ridiculously cheesy, I also think it's kind of cute. I'm excited for her and just hope that she doesn't name the baby something terrible. Actually, even if it's a terrible name, I just hope it's spelled correctly.
