It was the weekend of the Hollywood baby with happy news for Halle Berry on the birth of her son, plus four more adorable new celebrity baby snaps. Enjoy!
Congratulations Halle & Olivier!
Halle Berry has given birth to a baby boy!
She and Olivier Martinez – who married in July – welcomed their first child together on Saturday, her rep has confirmed.
The baby was born in Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
It’s a little brother for 5-year-old Nahla, Halle’s daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who has been spotted skipping and prancing through the maternity ward.
A source at the hospital told People magazine on Saturday: “Olivier hasn’t left Halle’s side. Nahla visited her baby brother earlier today.”
Olivier revealed the couple were expecting a boy in June, telling People magazine: “My son will remain an American, but I will remain French. I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there—but I’m still a foreigner. My son will be an American.”
Josh Duhamel has shared another adorable photograph of baby son Axl on Instagram.
“Gonna catch some football with my little guy today,” the sports-loving (go Minnesota Vikings!) dad, 40, wrote.
Sinead ends war with Miley
Sinead O’Connor has told Ireland’s The Late Late Show that her fued with Miley Cyrus is over” “As far as I’m concerned it’s over, it’s not something I really want to talk about.”
“I doubt Miley is the type of person who sat down and said that I want to hurt Amanda Bynes. I was upset on behalf of Amanda Bynes. I thought it was a nasty thing to do to Amanda Bynes because she had nothing to do with the conversation. And also the poor girl is in hospital at the moment receiving treatment.
“Why I would engage in wanting to talk to certain artists A, as a mother and B, as a person who loves music and believes in it’s power to change things. There’s a certain alarm that needs to get rung. Artists around the world will agree that music is being murdered, the power of real rock and roll to move people, to change things is being murdered.”
She also she told Miley to stop “prostituting” herself: “The money making end of music is taking over. I was asked to wear mini-skirts and grow my hair and that is why I shaved my hair. I wanted to be genuinely judged on my talent and not how I looked.”
No Glee in this teary tribute
A brief promo and a song list have been released for next week’s Cory Monteith tribute episode (October 10 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX). And in just a 30-second promo, fans around the world were left with tears streaming down their face.
The episode will unfold in the immediate aftermath of Finn Hudson’s sudden death, though the reason for his passing will not be explained. Instead, “The Quarterback” will focus on the members of the New Directions as they return to McKinley High School to grieve for their lost friend.
Watching the promo was even more heartbreaking for fans as it showed Blaine (Darren Criss) visiting a memorial at his friend’s locker in the hallways of McKinley lined with messages, drumsticks and a football, Kurt (Chris Colfer) cradling himself in his stepbrother’s letterman jacket, and Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) comforting a devastated Rachel (Lea Michele) over her lost love. The hardest part about seeing this teaser is how you can’t help but realize that we are watching the real emotions and tears of these actors losing their friend/boyfriend — not performers acting out a scene.
See the heartbreaking promo below:
“I’ve never seen a crew that you can’t continue shooting because they’ve left the room sobbing,” creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter about filming the episode. “It was very hard. I struggled even working on it because what you’re seeing is what they felt not just about Finn but Cory. It’s amazing performances across the board and everybody went into it with a lot of love.”
That’s Michele’s chilling voice in the promo, singing Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” (which she performs when she appears in the episode’s final segment). “It was very rough, and it was very rough with Lea,” Murphy said. “I’m very proud of it. I think the performances are quite stunning. It was tricky. You had to have a hard eye when you were putting it together. People still are not over it and it’s still very difficult.”
Just a glance at the rest of the track listing confirms this:
“Seasons of Love,” Rent
“I’ll Stand by You,” The Pretenders (which Amber Riley’s Mercedes sings)
“If I Die Young,” The Band Perry (which Naya Rivera’s Santana sings)
“Fire and Rain,” James Taylor
“No Surrender,” Bruce Springsteen
Hollywood’s cutest new bub?
How adorable! New mum Kim Kardashian has just posted the cutest picture of North West and the internet is falling in love with the little bundle – and her chubby cheeks – all over again! It’s been a while since we’ve seen Nori and from what we can remember, she’s just the cutest thing that you’ll probably see all day. And just like her fashionista mum, she’s already camera ready!
Madonna’s motherhood confession
In a cover story for the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Madonna has discussed why she became a mum.
“At 35, I was divorced and looking for love in all the wrong places. I decided that I needed to be more than a girl with gold teeth and gangster boyfriends. More than a sexual provocateur imploring girls not to go for second-best baby. I began to search for meaning and a real sense of purpose in life. I wanted to be a mother.”
After having biological kids Lourdes and Rocco, she decided to adopt son David Banda from Malawi, which she says was “an eye opening experience” and “a real low point in my life.”
“I didn’t know that trying to adopt a child was going to land me in another sh– storm,” she says. “I was accused of kidnapping, child trafficking, using my celebrity muscle to jump ahead in the line, bribing government officials, witchcraft, you name it.”
“I could get my head around people giving me a hard time for simulating masturbation onstage or publishing my Sex book, even kissing Britney Spears at an awards show, but trying to save a child’s life was not something I thought I would be punished for. . . In any case, I got through it. I survived.
“One of the many things I learned from all of this. If you aren’t willing to fight for what you believe in, then don’t even enter the ring.”
It’s mini Ozzie!
Jack Osbourne got a head start on Halloween by posting this cute snapshot of his 17-month-old daughter Pearl looking a lot like her grandpa Ozzy!
He captioned the shot “The Princess of Darkness”, in a reference to father Ozzy’s nickname.
Hulk Hogan mimics Miley
Hulk Hogan has spoofed Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” video in a commercial for his website hosting company, Hostamania.
In the video, the 60-year-old swings on a wrecking ball wearing a man thong. Fortunately, unlike Miley, he decided not to go entirely naked.

Claire’s superglue bond with her bub
Claire Danes has admitted returning to the set of Homeland after giving birth to son Cyrus last December was a confronting experience.
She tells the November issue of Vogue UK magazine: “My real anxiety was that I would never want to work again. Because it’s so intoxicating, the bond is just so… viscous. It’s like superglue.
“One of the overarching themes of the show is loneliness and sacrifice. Carrie’s isolation is being really, really stretched to its outer limits. She’s very stranded in this season. And I am feeling very bonded right now. So there’s a real dichotomy there. Carrie and her reality could not be more antithetical to burgeoning motherhood.”
When she returned to work as Carrie Mathison, the actress was surprised at how quickly she could jump from the intense script to tending to her child.
“It’s as amusing as hell that I’m taking on terrorists and whatever tomfoolery I’m doing and then I race back to my director’s chair and start embroidering onesies as if my life depended on it.”
Check out Simon’s puppies
Simon Cowell is getting in some early training on fatherhood by adopting a pair of cute pooches.
Posting a picture of himself holding them on Twitter, he wrote: “Two new arrivals …… Any suggestions for names?”
J’Law & Brad’s sexy new posters
American Hustle, based in part on the ABSCAM public corruption scandal of the late 1970s and early 1980s, looks set to be one of the movies of the year … if the promo posters are anything to go by.
The film stars stars Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, plus Robert De Niro, Louis C.K. and Michael Pena and Sony has released five new character posters for the film. And Bradley is rocking that perm waaaaay better than I’d ever have imagined, in fact, he looks seriously hot.
American Hustle is out in theaters in the US on December 13.
No truth to Burton cheating rumours
Numerous media outlets have run photographs of director Tim Burton kissing a mystery blonde in London and accused him of cheating on his partner of 12 years Helena Bonham Carter.
But Helena’s rep is saying it’s all not true. The actress’ spokeswoman told Gossip Cop: “This is an absolute nonsense,” and explained that the photo was “taken whilst they were out and the large group includes family, friends and work colleagues.”
The couple (I can’t believe I didn’t know this) have two children together – Billy, 9, and Nell, 5. But, until last year they lived in separate homes. The eccentric couple bought houses next door to one, but decided to move into one building when the other home was being renovated.
Tim and Helena (pictured above in a photo shoot for Vogue UK) have also worked collaboratively on numerous movie projects including Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Dark Shadows and Alice in Wonderland, and Tim has admitted he has a rather unique way of dealing with issues between them on set.
“Alice in Wonderland was fine,” he said. “Alice was good, actually. I had a Nerf gun that I’d shoot her with every so often to get my tension out.”
Emmy’s mortifying encounter
Eeeeek! Emmy Rossum tweeted this week: “Just had the most AWKWARD moment. Saw a man I recognized but couldn’t figure out HOW I knew him. He was SO familiar but I couldn’t place him.
“So finally I leaned over and said, Excuse me but you look so familiar. Do I know you?
“He said, Hi Emmy. It’s Dr Katz. I’m your gynocologist.
“Horrifying. Mortifying. Has that or anything like that happened to any of you?? Come on, tell me it has. Make me feel less like an idiot.”
Emmy, we feel your pain.
Jessica’s bub is Ace!
Jessica Simpson has shared a photo of three-month old son Ace Knute Johnson on her Twitter page.
Diddy’s daughters make their modelling debut
It’s Kids Fashion Week in New York and P. Diddy’s three daughters have made their runway debuts on the Swarovski and Ooh! La, La! catwalks.
Chance Combs was joined by her half-siblings, twins Jessie and D’Lila, on the runway. And their proud daddy was in the front row cheering them on.
“Words can’t explain how proud I am of my young ladies ! There’s no greater feeling #fact” he wrote.
But he also cautioned: “My 3 little super models #ProudDad …I’m really in trouble! No for real. No dating till you’re 25!!! Haa lol”
Hugh reveals his brutal Wolverine diet
Hugh Jackman has shown off his dance moves in Manhattan magazine’s October edition.
The 44-year-old actor also revealed how hard it was to get physically fit for Wolverine.
“Water dehydration got me that ripped look, but I’m so low on energy I’m literally sleeping all the time because I’m on a zero-carb, limited-calories diet. It’s pretty brutal,’ he revealed.
He also admitted that the physical training is always harder than the mental.
“The physical preparation gets harder and the emotional preparation gets easier,” he explained. “For an action movie like Wolverine, the director, James Mangold, rode me hard – he wanted me to have a deeper version of the character. But having played action characters about 16 times, that comes easier to me now.”
He also admitted getting so involved in the physical aspects of his roles that he doesn’t stay still for very long even in his sleep.
“I’m the busiest sleeper on the planet. My wife says about every 15 seconds I kick, run, turn around, like I’m running a marathon. If you’re on a plane next to me, you wonder what’s going on with that guy.”
