For the first time in history, the French presidential palace is hearing the pitter-patter of baby feet! Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy welcomed a daughter at a private clinic in Paris this evening. The baby is the first for the couple — the couple each have children from previous relationships: Carla's son Aurelien, 10, and Nicolas's children Pierre, 26, Jean, 25, and Louis, 14 — and is also the first baby born to a sitting French president. We admired the French first lady's buttoned-up maternity style as she went about her official government business, as well as her bikini style while on vacation. We can't wait to see the first daughter's sure-to-be impeccable style now! Congratulations!
It's a boy or it's a girl, but who should tell the new addition's siblings? If mom and dad are in the midst of all the new baby bliss and hospital (or home birth) hoopla, is it the job of an outside party — a grandparent or family friend — to inform the big brother or sister? Some parents are particular in how they want to debut the news and others just believe in letting the information spread. What's your opinion?
The Travoltas are having a blue Thanksgiving after welcoming a baby boy last night! Kelly Preston, 48, gave birth to 8 lbs., 3 oz. baby Benjamin in a Florida hospital. The couple, who announced that they were expecting a year after the devastating loss of their 16-year-old son, Jett, said in a statement:
John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family. Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully.
Congratulations to the entire family!
Our family will be a party of five! I am three months pregnant with our third child who is due to debut at the end of September. My five-year-old daughter and two-year-old son are excited to welcome a little sibling. And, my husband and I are preparing to be outnumbered!
