HollyWord: New Celebrity Moms



Penelope Scotland Disick was welcomed into the world and the ever expanding Kardashian clan on July 8. She is the second child and first daughter of the 33-year oldest Kardashian sister, Kourtney, and her long-time partner, Scott Disick. Kourtney had an all-natural labor and frankly quick and easy delivery. During both of Kourtney’s deliveries she pulled the baby right out herself. The couple’s little girl weighed in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces, and just like her brother, Mason, her birth was privately filmed by the family and then publicly aired on their reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In all her 3 months of life, Penelope has had quite an eventful time. She has posed for US Weekly’s cover, made an appearance at her Aunt Kylie’s 15th birthday bash, and been spotted by the paps on numerous outings. But what do you expect when your entrance into the world is filmed on television!

Another former reality star and fashion designer, Kristin Cavallari just gave birth to her newborn on August 8th, Camden Jack Cutler.  It’s weird seeing her as a mom when it feels like just yesterday she was in a love triangle with Brody Jenner and Justin Bobby on The Hills.  If you don’t know Kristin Cavallari, she played a role as the carefree chick in Laguna Beach and The Hills, the most talked about reality TV shows from 2005-2009.Kristin admits that her pregnancy was a surprise at 25 years old, and that she was planning on waiting until she was married at 30 for kids. Oh well.  Kristin is married to Jay Cutler, the Chicago Bears quarterback.  He’s cute, but definitely not cuter than Brody Jenner, her love interest on The Hills. Being a new mom with a newborn, she describes her fashion as “whatever is easiest.”  She finds herself wearing leggings, t-shirts, and maxi dresses.  Cavallari has plans for her upcoming shoe line, a wedding, and hopefully some more stunning fashion shoots. She may be off The Hills, but she’s not going anywhere.

Former star of Jersey Shore, and current star of Snooki and JWOWW, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her fiancé, Jionni Lavelle, introduced Lorenzo Dominic to the world. Of course when the news was released that she was pregnant, people’s reactions weren’t the most sincere. I mean… have you seen Jersey Shore? If you haven’t, it solely revolves around hook ups and watching how these characters poorly handle their booze.  But Snooki says for herself that after August 26th, the birth of her first baby, “The partying is long gone.” She’s a “new person now.”  The pickle eater, guido lover, who is also known as a “meatball” has been on this reality tv show for 3 years and appeared in 5 seasons, soon to be a final 6. On October 4th, she was on the premiere of Jersey Shore eight months into her pregnancy.  Many Jersey Shore fans are sad to hear about Snooki leaving, but for the sake of Lorenzo, it can only be a good thing. Since then, the Italian reality TV star and her fiancé have been spending time around Los Angeles with their new family.

Giuliana and Bill Rancic reality tv stars of the creatively named Giuliana and Bill welcomed their son Edward Duke on August 29. The two have publically discussed their fertility issues; they have had to overcome many obstacles over the years and are greatly appreciated of their little miracle. Giuliana suffered a miscarriage in 2010, and later a mammogram revealed that Giuliana had breast cancer, but despite their troubles they remained motivated. On April 23 they announced they were expecting their first child through a gestational surrogate, Delphine.  At first, they were against airing his birth on their show. They told the Style Network not to send cameras to the delivery room when Delphine went into labor, but they did bring their own video cameras. They later reconsidered their decision because they believe they owe it to their fans that have been following their story for six seasons.  So far, their beautiful baby boy has lived a happy and healthy life—and like Penelope, this little superstar made the cover of a magazine, Life & Style!
