Summer is blooming and babies are booming in Hollywood! We’ve got the scoop on who is expecting and who gave birth plus updates on the experienced mamas who are managing to juggle it all:
Joanna and Chip Gaines Welcome Baby Boy
Joanna and Chip Gaines, the former stars of Fixer Upper, had a very busy weekend—they welcomed their fifth child, Crew Gaines. The 40-year-old mother looked blissful and resplendent in the four photos she shared on Instagram to announce the little boy’s birth along with the caption, “Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love.”
“He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early — which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”
In another sweet shot, the couple’s four older children—Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13—were gathered on the other side of the hospital door listening for their little brother’s arrival. It might not be the last time either.
While Joanna says her last pregnancy was a surprise, she’s not ruling out having more children. “I joke with my friends that I’m going to be that 45-year-old who’s pregnant,” she said. “Chip is such a kid at heart and we both love a big family. I’m open to whatever. I’m just having fun with it.”
We’ll just have to wait and see what unfolds. In the meantime, congratulations to the growing family!
Jana Kramer Expecting Second Child!
It’s been a tough time for Jana Kramer and her husband, Mike Caussin. After reconciling following his infidelity, the pair went through a miscarriage in October and another loss in February. Now, they have proudly announced that another baby is on the way!
In her Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast, the 34-year-old “Dammit” singer revealed that, while she’s tried in vitro fertilization before, she became pregnant naturally by tracking her ovulation cycle.
Kramer, who has endured a total of five miscarriages, says that this pregnancy came with the worst morning sickness she’s ever had. “I was in bed for like six weeks straight,” she explained. “I felt like I was just doing such a bad job as a mom because Jolie’s super active right now.”
Many, many mothers can definitely relate to that feeling. It’s tough but worth it in the end. Such an exciting time for Jana, Mike and their two-year-old daughter, Jolie!
Jersey Shore Star’s Baby Involved in Domestic Fight
It sounds like things really got out of hand when Jersey Shore star, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, was allegedly assaulted by his ex-girlfriend, Jen Harley. TMZ reported that a fight erupted as they drove home from a barbecue. After Ortiz-Magro demanded to be let out of the car, Harley took off even though he was caught in his seat belt.
The worst part is that Harley ended up dragging Ortiz-Magro while their baby daughter was in the car. That could have been really serious!
This wasn’t the first time something like this happened, though. The cops were recently called to the Planet Hollywood Casino and Resort when the former couple got into a heated argument as he filmed the second season of Jersey Shore Family Reunion.
Hopefully, this serious incident will serve as a warning before something more serious happens.
