Jessica Simpson "couldn't wait" to pose naked. The heavily-pregnant star - who has previously struggled with her fluctuating weight - bared all for the cover of Elle magazine and admitted she is currently feeling more confident about her body than ever.
"Normally I'm hoping to be 107 pounds and I don't eat, but I ate cheesecake before we shot. I wasn't nervous at all, Normally, I'm so shy. I'm not the person you see photographed in a bikini on a beach. But for some reason, being pregnant, it's so easy for me. I feel so comfortable in my skin."
Nicole Richie is "not ready" to have another child. The fashion designer hasn't ruled out having more kids with husband Joel Madden but says they are currently too busy with work and raising daughter Harlow, four, and son Sparrow, two.
"I'm not ready for baby number three - it's not something I'm discussing with Joel at the moment, but maybe we'll have another child sometime in the future. It's a full-time job taking care of two children but they mean everything to me. It's hard to balance being a full-time mum and having a career, but somehow you manage."
Angelina Jolie says Brad Pitt has had to become tougher on their children.
The Oscar-winning actress raises six children with the actor - Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - and while she has always been the stricter parent in the past, Brad has now had to be more involved with the discipline.
"I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins, Brad's had to play bad cop more often. It also depends on which of the children we are talking about. Brad has always had this incredible bond with Mad, who's very smart, and Brad loves teaching him about history and art and culture - it's an amazing thing to watch them together. I think I'm a little closer to the girls, maybe, but he's always making them laugh. The children are usually very well-behaved though."
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have named their newborn son Samuel.
The couple - who also have two daughters, six-year-old Violet and three-year-old Seraphina - welcomed their "healthy" third child on Monday in Santa Monica, California.
"We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," Ben wrote on his Facebook page.
The 39-year-old actress - who has been married to the 39-year-old star since June 2005 - recently revealed the pair's daughters had been thinking of possible Disney-related names to call their newborn child: "Our girls are working on names. At first they were definitely Disney. It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck. And then they've moved on. Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee."
Kim Kardashian "absolutely" wants to have children - but not for a few years.
The 31-year-old socialite - who has been romantically linked with former boyfriend Reggie Bush since splitting from husband Kris Humphries in October after just 72 days of marriage - still wants to have a family but not just yet as she wants to keep her curvaceous figure the way it is.
"Do I want kids of my own? Absolutely. But I don't know if that's what's meant for me. Maybe I'll just work, work, work, and not think about it. [My sister] Khloe joked with me and said, 'Will you be my surrogate?'"
But for the moment Kim wants to keep her shape instead of having a baby: "I said, 'I think I have a couple more years when I just want my body to myself. At 35, I promise I'll consider it.'"
Kim also admitted her public nuptials and the subsequent fall-out from the demise of her marriage - which has been the subject of speculation it was a fake union designed to boost ratings for her reality TV shows - has taught her to be more private about her personal life in future. "[The experience has] definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again. I'm not ready, but when that time comes, I'll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to," she told Allure.
Kristin Cavallari will find out the sex of her baby.
The 25-year-old star - who is currently expecting her first baby with partner Jay Cutler - admits she would not be able to wait to find out if she was having a boy or girl, but would not mind what it turns out to be: "I do want to find out what I'm having, I couldn't wait. I don't care what the sex is. A little girl would be fun, to put little tutus on her, but a boy would be great, so I don't care."
Despite only being in the early stages of her pregnancy, Kristin has experienced some cravings - mostly for dairy produce. "It's been going great, I haven't had any morning sickness. I've just been a little tired. I went through a dairy phase where anything with dairy in it I had to have, but now I'm out of that phase and there's nothing in particular I'm craving.
Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z have shared the first pictures of their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. The superstar couple - who welcomed their first child into the world on January 7 - unveiled a set of intimate family shots on social networking site Tumblr, which show a beaming Beyonce tenderly cradling the tot in her arms and the rapper comforting his adorable daughter as she sleeps.
"We welcome you to share our joy. 'Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives," the couple wrote in an accompanying message.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has a new nickname to be more like her brothers. The five-year-old daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is known for her tomboy habits and is now said to have asked her family to call her 'Shax' because it is similar to the names of her siblings Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, and three-year-old Knox.
"For a while Shiloh had everyone in the family calling her Ben for some reason but she grew tired of that. These days she's decided she wants to be known as Shax because Maddox, Pax, and Knox's names all end in the letter X. Angelina and Brad are going along with it and think its cute," a source told the National Enquirer.
Angelina - who also has daughters Zahara, six, and three-year-old Vivienne with Brad - has previously revealed that Shiloh always wants to be like her brothers: "Shiloh dresses like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It's how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers."
Jessica Alba has advised Beyonce Knowles to sell the first pictures of newborn daughter Ivy Blue.
The stunning actress and her husband Cash Warren reportedly received $1.5 million from OK! magazine for the first images of their daughter, Honor, in 2008, and she thinks Beyonce and spouse Jay-Z should do the same with their new addition.
"For our family, we just wanted to control the experience. We put the money that the picture made into a bank account for Honor to do whatever she wants to do with. It's her picture, it's her birth, and we didn't want it to be like a weird thing when we were walking out of the house for the first time. If there's a price tag on your child - which is so bizarre - people will go to crazy lengths. We wanted to avoid that hysteria," she said.
Jessica - who welcomed second daughter, Haven, into the world last August - said she really enjoyed the photo shoot and would definitely recommend it: "We were friends with the photographer. It was just a nice day in the house. We'll have those beautiful pictures forever. You can give the money to charity and to your baby and that's it. But the biggest thing is having a healthy baby ... I'm sure Beyonce will make the best decision for her family."
David Beckham admits he's going to have to earn lots of money to keep daughter Harper dressed in designer outfits. The soccer star has recently signed a new two-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy and the handsome athlete admits it's a relief because fashion designer wife Victoria likes to dress the six-month-old tot in expensive clothes.
"I've obviously got three amazing boys and with boys you can throw them around and Harper is obviously my first girl and I'm more careful. Still now, I'm changing her diaper and I can't believe I've got a girl. Everything about her is feminine, the way she eats, the way she moves, the way she looks. I love having a girl, but I'm glad she's got three older brothers and a dad to look after her. Her wardrobe is incredible already. I'm glad I've got a two year contract," said David, speaking in a chat for Google+.
Another reason David, 36, decided to re-sign with the LA Galaxy was because his family are happy in America and he says they will always come first: "I didn't take it lightly as I had offers from other clubs around the world and at 36 you don't expect it. But it was best for my family. We love living in LA at the moment, we love living in America and we have adapted to the culture and at the moment we didn't want to leave. When you're married and have children your priorities totally change. We've got three amazing boys and a little girl we have to look after and it's all about them. They come first."
