Anne V., I suppose one of many Annes in the third-grade supermodel class, recently had an baby with her husband, a Yahoo! executive. She announced the name of the female babe on an Instagram post of the bottom of the infant’s foot: “Welcome to the world baby Alaska! Your little feet absolutely rocked my world, I’ve never been so in love! @acahan and I couldn’t be more proud. 6/25/2015.”
Jill Duggar, person from Arkansas, and her husband, Derick Dillard, welcomed a baby boi today: Israel David. Jill wore a headband that said "Jill," Derick wore an Israeli Defense Forces T-shirt and the baby wore a onesie that said "Israel." To fit in with his family perhaps Derick should change his name to "Israeli Defense Forces" Dillard. Just a suggestion.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, plastic sex dolls who fell in love against all odds, have been playing the long game with their new (but now kind of old) baby girl's name. The simultaneously press-shy and press-starving couple have kept America and the Baby Name Critic on the edge of their seats by refusing to reveal the name of their faceless young one.
Rider Strong, who I hope has enough royalties from his Boy Meets World days to raise a child, has had a child. People Magazine writes that Strong and his wife, Alexandra Barretto, "successfully kept Barretto's pregnancy completely under wraps." Hmm. Wonder how they did that. The world is indeed a mystery sometimes. So much happens that we don't know about...
Is it just the Baby Name Critic, or has there been a celebrity birth idyll? Since the arrival of Wallpaper Lively-Reynolds at the turn of the year, things at Gawker's Baby Name Headquarters have been quiet... too quiet. What could the celebrities be hiding? Or perhaps, from whom could they be hiding?
