Congrats to Niki Taylor: the supermodel and husband Burney Lamar welcomed their first child together on Wednesday morning. Daughter Ciel Taylor Lamar was born at a Nashville hospital, one day before her mother’s thirty-third birthday.
Niki also has 14 year old twin sons, Hunter and Jake, from her first marriage to some dude.
Congrats to Melanie Chisholm: the former Spice Girl gave birth to her first child on Monday. Mel C and boyfriend Thomas Starr announced the birth of daughter Scarlett Starr on the singer’s website.
“Melanie C gave birth to a beautiful little girl at 4.10pm on Sunday 22nd February. Both mum and baby are doing well.”
35 year old Mel C was the last of the Spice Girls to become a mother: Victoria Beckham and husband David Beckham have three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz; Emma Bunton gave birth to a son, Beau, in 2007; Geri Halliwell has two-and-a-half year old daughter Bluebell; and Mel B has two daughters, Phoenix Chi, ten, and Angel Iris, one-and-a-half, with former boyfriend Eddie Murphy.
M.I.A. wasn’t kidding when she said she could give birth on Grammy night–just a few days later, on February 11, the singer gave birth to her first child, a boy, in Los Angeles.
On her MySpace Celebrity Blog, M.I.A. writes (in all capital letters) that on Sunday night, after the Grammys, “MY EARLY STAGE LABOUR KICKED IN AROUND 2 AM … MY BABY WAS BORN WEDNESDAY, HE IS HEALTHY, FINE, BEAUTIFUL AND THE MOST AMZING THING EVER ON THIS PLANET, OF COURSE IM HIS MUM!!!”
M.I.A.’s baby-daddy is Benjamin Bronfman, the guitarist for The Exit and member of the Bronfman Family, widely considered one of the most influential (and wealthiest) Jewish families in the world.
In case you were wondering, sketchy octuplet mom released the names of her eight children. Ready?
Noah, Maliah, Jonah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Mehki, Josiah, and Nariah.
Sketchy octuplet mom, aka Nadya Suleman, already has six children, so I guess she kind of ran out of names.
And speaking of those six other children, Nadya’s mother spoke out this week, and claimed she was “very upset” her 33 year old daughter decided to artificially inseminate herself again, because she has “no means to support” the fourteen kids.
“She already has six beautiful children, why would she do this?” Angela Suleman told Radaronline.com in an interview that aired on ABC’s Good Morning America. “To have them all is unconscionable to me. She really really has no idea what she’s doing to her children and to me.”
Angela said that she’s been housing and supporting her daughter Nadya and her six grandchildren (by in vitro fertilization) in a “cramped,” three-bedroom apartment for years. The babies are fed in shifts and “there’s children’s clothing piled all over the house,” she added.
“How she’s going to cope, I don’t know,” Angela said of her daughter. “I’m really tired of taking care of the six children and need her to think about how she’ll provide for all these children.”
Angela added that Nadya “spent a lot of money on toys” but never contributed rent or food money.
She also claims that her daughter “never told” her about the more than $167,000 that records show she received from worker’s compensation claims.
“Nadya promised to help me with the bills, but she never has,” Angela said. “I lost a house because of it and now I’m struggling to look after her six.”
Added Susan, “Unless [Nadya] starts working, earning money, I don’t know, she may have to go on welfare, which she said she never would do.”
After watching the above video, something strange occurred to me: Nadya has underwent some obvious plastic surgery over the past few years. How in the world is homegirl affording all this shit?
