Dax & Kristen have a baby girl; Cory Monteith heads to rehab
Teen stars of today, meet the teen stars of tomorrow – and new moms and dads, use this week’s celebrity gossip as a “what not to do” guide to raising your kids.
Really, can Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard be any cuter? Kristen Bell gave birth to her first child, a little girl she named Lincoln Bell Shepard, last Thursday. The couple has been together since late 2007 and got engaged in 2010, and announced the pregnancy in November 2012. Dax Shepard, start of NBC’s Parenthood Tweeted the birth announcement in his usually silly way: “She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!” Kristen Bell responded with her own pithy birth announcement: “My new roommate poops her pants and doesn’t pay rent…basically Dax pre-sobriety.” The family who laughs together, stays together! Here’s to lots of laughing and loving for this sweet new addition.
Ahh, the lifestyles of the rich and fabulous: baby edition. Blue Ivy Carter, daughter of hip-hop impresario Jay Z and singer Beyonce, surely will get anything she wants in life, and maybe some things she doesn’t necessarily WANT…like a tot-sized custom initialed directors chair! Beyonce, 31, posted a shot on Instagram of her director’s chair, emblazoned with the world tour logo, along side a tiny Blue-sized version with the initials BIC. Although Blue Ivy will be accompanying Beyonce on this tour, she wants her 14-month-old daughter to experience a normal childhood out of the spotlight as she grows. “At some point it’s very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and life and do all the things that any child should be able to do,” Beyonce told People. But for now? Blue will be sitting pretty off-stage!
A normal childhood is something every kid should have at some point – or they might end up like Justin Bieber! Justin has been showing some bizarre and disturbing behaviors in the past few months: spitting on his neighbor during an altercation, fighting with photographers, and allowing his friends to throw parties with drugs and alcohol at his Calabasas mansion. Is it the beginning of the end for Justin Bieber? A respected music manager says yes. Peter Mensch, who manages Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica, told the Sun that he believes Justin Bieber’s career will be over in three years, and that Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, is scared of the teen singing sensation’s downward spiral. Don’t fret, Beliebers; as Justin Bieber says, “Never say never….”
Perhaps Justin Bieber should take a page from Glee star Cory Monteith, who checked himself into rehab Monday for substance abuse addiction.
This is Cory’s second stint in rehab (the first was when he was 19 years old.) Cory Monteith’s girlfriend, co-star Lea Michele, issued a statement giving her love and support for Cory; “I am grateful and proud he made this decision.” Glee producers, 20th Century Fox TV, also lended support to the ailing star, saying they fully support his decision. Production for the remaining two episodes will be continue as scheduled, according to The Hollywood Reporter. We also wish him the best of luck and a speedy return to health.
So what do our readers think: Twitter birth announcements, yay or nay?
