Brooke Burke Baby


UPDATE ~ The name has been revealed. On Brooke's site Baboosh Baby, she exclusively reveals her name choice. Brooke blogs; You heard it here first! We have finally settled on a name. We waited our whole lives for our son, and couldn't find the perfect fit. Poor guy! Now it's official. Shaya Charvet
We played with so many different names, and both loved Shaya the most. It means God's gift in Hebrew. David came up with a middle name, Braven, which I really like. I want to give him part of my name too, so I am thinking about double Bs in the middle like my initials, Braven-Burke. He is the last Charvet to carry on David's family name. He is also the first boy in David's family, the little brother of three princesses, and my youngest. Ya think he is gonna be spoiled?!?!

Christie Clark Baby


DAYS OF HER LIFE ~ Christie wrote on her blog that Hannah has arrived and she was born a month early. She blogs; "Hello, so we had our bundle of joy a month early. Hannah was 5pds 10oz. She clearly has her fathers energy and wanted to join the party a bit earlier than was planned. We are just falling in love with our little lady, and learning the ropes as we go. Didn't get to read the last couple of chapters in the pregnancy books, trying to sneak in a chapter here and there. Thank God, I had a shower the weekend that she came out of the oven or I'd really be scrambling for items that were needed. Tom had just flown back from the UK to Washington DC, and I didn't know which hotel he was in when my water broke. Luckily, he always books hotels thru American Express, so I had to call them and find out which hotel he was in. American Express booked him on the first flight out of DC, and he made it just in time for the birth. It was like a scene like a scene from a movie the way he describes it, running thru the airport screaming "out of my way", hopped in a cab and the nurses were all waiting in the hall saying "this way". Could be a good commercial for American Express. Either way...she is healthy and doing extremely well. Many thanks,Christie"

Christie has portrayed Carrie Brady on the long running NBC Soap, Days of Our Lives, from 1986 to 1990, 1992 to 1999 and 2005 to 2006. When Carrie exited the show in 1999 she studied at University in London and while in Europe she met her future husband Thomas Barnes.

"I'm a Quebecer, and it's great that she is learning how to speak French," Eugenie says. "I'm glad that the little one will speak French, too." New mom Halle and dad Gabriel try to visit Gabriel's 64-year-old father, Gérard, and eight brothers and sisters as often as possible.

9:20 p.m. ~ People confirms the news. Halle's rep tells People that she had a baby girl and "is doing great".

BERRY BABY ~ A Star Magazine exclusive; Halle is finally a mother! According to Star, she had an initial scare earlier in the day but delivered a baby girl at 10:17 a.m. March 16th, 2008. Halle's daughter weighed in at 7lbs., 4oz. and was delivered at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. She apparently checked into the hospital for the second time that day after feeling contractions earlier Saturday morning. A source tells the magazine; "Halle had come to the hospital at 4am in the morning because the felt like she was going into labor. It was a bit scary because her blood pressure was skyrocketing and everyone was a little tense. She's a diabetic so that was complicating matters as well. The doctors checked the fetal heart rate and everything seemed okay. After a while Halle's blood pressure came down. She wasn't dilating anymore so at around 2:45pm they let her go home. Halle felt her contractions come on a lot more intensely later that night so she came back to the hospital at 11:00pm Saturday night. Halle was overcome with emotion when she finally held her little girl. She said everything she had gone through was worth that moment. The tears kept coming as Halle didn't even want the nurses to take her baby to clean her up and measure. It was a truly beautiful scene."

Back in September, she confirmed her pregnancy; "Yes, I am three months pregnant," the Oscar winner told Access Hollywood. "Gabriel and I are beyond excited and I've waited a long time for this moment in my life."

Over the years, Halle has made no secret about her desire for a family. Back in April, Halle sat down with Access Hollywood host Nancy O'Dell for a candid talk about Halle’s plans for kids. “Not that there’s not more to accomplish, but I think I arrived at a point in life that I realized I needed more to get me up in the morning. More than going to a new movie set. Or as much fun as getting the star was yesterday, I need something even more profound than that and that’s family. And that’s children,” Halle said. ” I need that like the air to breathe these days and I’m ready. I’m at a point where I’m really, really ready.”

Berry, 41, and her Canadian boyfriend, 32-year-old model Gabriel Aubry, met shooting a Versace ad in Los Angeles in November 2005 and first stepped out as a couple three months later in New York City at the February opening of a Versace boutique in New York City.
