Celebrity Baby News in August

It’s been a while since I’ve written a celebrity baby round up post so this is going to be a quick fire summary of what’s been going on over the past couple of weeks in showbiz baby world…

Danielle Lloyd gives birth to third  boy

Scouse beauty Danielle Lloyd has just given birth to a baby boy – her third son. She was really hoping for a girl and when it was revealed she was having another boy, it’s reported she was really upset about it. After getting home and reassessing the situation, she realised she was being silly and how lucky she is to have three healthy boys. Danielle herself said this is her last child and there are no plans for anymore.

Simon Cowell smoking in front of pregnant girlfriend

There are widespread calls for Simon Cowell to quit smoking as he could be harming his unborn baby whilst smoking in front of Lauren Silverman. It was a surprise that Simon Cowell is expecting a child with his friends ex. A friend of Lauren’s reported that he has been trying to cut down.

Katie Price baby Jett still in hospital

Yesterday Jordan announced on Twitter that her 2 week old son with third husband Kieron Hayler was still in hospital suffering with breathing problems. She was forced to have the baby 8 weeks early with an emergency caesarean whilst abroad on holiday due to some unexpected complications.  We hope he gets better very soon and can go home. Jett is a very unusual but nice name for a baby boy.

William and Kate Overwhelmed with Royal Baby Gifts!

It comes as no surprise that new little Royal George has received a shed load of baby gifts from well wishers.

They have so many gifts that they’ve got to the point where William and Kate have asked people to stop sending their gifts and instead to please make a donation to the Imperial College Healthcare Charity. This is a charity based at St Mary’s Hospital where George was born.

The Royal aides have been reported to be struggling with the tens of thousands of gifts and cards that have flooded in for George since his arrival on 22nd July 2013.

You can’t blame people for wanting to send a gift. But you can imagine just how difficult it must be to handle so many at once. One thing’s for sure, George certainly won’t go short of anything.

Some of the Royal baby gifts included-

  • Box set of Roald Dahl books from Prime Minister David Cameron
  • Hand embroidered blanket made by nuns in Spain from Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg
  • Reserved seat for George marked with a plaque in the Greene King Pub in Cambridge
  • Tricycle from London Mayor Boris Johnson
  • Three year old apple tree from Labour leader Ed Miliband
  • A personalised Aston Villa football strip from the club itself
  • Mini skinny jeans and hoodie from Kanye West
  • Baby salt water crocodile from an Australian state

There is a very mixed bag of presents here – and many more that are not listed. What would you send to the boy who has everything?

Here at Angel Gifts our most popular baby boy gift is this very cool looking pirate ship money box. When it’s engraved it adds an extra special personal touch.

If I were to choose to send George something it would be this, or you can’t go wrong with a classic teddy bear.

Pirate Ship Money Box

When giving any baby gift, it’s always the thought that counts and I’m sure William and Kate are very thankful for every one of George’s presents. We wish them well and I’m sure there will be lots more baby news to come from them.

 

Celeb Baby News This Week – Zara Philips and Kate Middleton

Zara Philips is Pregnant

Buckingham palace announced today that Zara Phillips, granddaughter to the Queen, and Mark Tindall, ex England rugby star, are to have their first child together.  This news comes before the imminent arrival of Kate Middleton’s baby, due at some point this month.

Despite it being announced that she is 3 months pregnant she has continued to compete in some risky equestrian events, on Saturday at a competition in Banbury she fell off her horse but was reported to be ‘fine’.

Zara and Mark’s baby will be born 16th in line to the throne, and with their parents sporting background you can expect them to be a superstar in the future.

Baby will make their appearance in the New Year and will be the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s Forth great grandchild.

The Prime ministers official spokesperson said that the announcement was ‘quite terrific news’.

Despite the arrival of Baby Tindall, Zara still intends on competing in the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 wanting to improve on the silver she received in London 2012.

I am sure we all wish them the best in the future and that Baby Tindall arrives safe and well.  Who knows who will be next in the royal family?

Baby born using new IVF screening technique

A baby has been born in the US using a new method for screening embryos during IVF which could dramatically reduce costs.  It is thought that only 1 out of 3 embryos have a chance of being s

uccessful due to abnormalities during the process.

For most women who go through this process is a gruelling process, and to have to go through it twice or even three times after being unsuccessful can be heart-breaking as well as financially debilitating when all you want is that little someone to love.

Baby Connor in the USA shown below was born after this successful study where doctors picked the embryo that they thought had the best chance.  However it will now take extensive research to prove that this method is successful.  Here’s fingers crossed… 

Kate Middleton pregnant bumpKate Middleton Due date approaches.

It’s any day now, and the reporters are getting edgy, who will get the first snap of Baby Royal.

Photographers have been camped outside the St Mary’s Hospital where Kate will Give birth for a week now, yet she is not due til July 11th.

If Kate were to go into labour early she would be flown to the hospital by helicopter, and it has been seen that the parking bays at the hospital have been taped off with signs stating that they have been reserved for an event until 31st July.

We wish Kate good luck, and await the arrival of Baby Royal, Prince or Princess….

Coronation Street’s Jack P Shepard (AKA David Platt)

The 25 year old actor most of us know well as on screen character David Platt, has just announced he and his fiancee, Lauren Shippey are expecting their second baby together.

Yet another avid Twitter used, Jack tweeted the news to his many fans. It will be Jack’s third baby after fathering a child in a one-night stand during 2010. Lucky for him, his wife-to-be forgave him and agreed to get married.

Anyone watching Coronation Street will know that the current storyline for David Platt is he’s expecting a child with his wife that is actually his brother Nicks. Jack P Shepherd’s Twitter followers were quick off the mark to ask of the baby news “is it Nicks?” He did seem to find the Nick jokes funny.

Celeb Baby News Weekly – Kim Kardashian, Kate Middleton and David Walliams

I’m excited to reveal a new feature here at the Angel Gifts blog – a round up each week of some of the latest celebrity baby news and gossip.

With no further a do I present – in celebrity baby news this week!!…

Kim Kardashian baby shower

A few details have been released about heavily pregnant Kim Kardashian’s baby shower. Kim has asked that all gifts and donations go to the Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

This is a really nice idea and full respect to her for helping a good cause. A close friend, Sharon Sacks is organsing the baby shower. Exact theme and day haven’t yet been revealed.

Partner Kanye West is reported to have spent little time with Kim during her pregnancy due to working away on his new album. It’s believed her family have warned Kim that Kanye is treating her badly. Let’s hope that’s not true. The couple were seen spending some time together in Paris this week.

Kate Middleton shops in the rain

The beautiful Kate Middleton was seen out shopping for a new rug for the home she shares with Prince William, and of course some new nursery furniture for the new baby Prince or Princess soon to join the Royal Family.

She was dressed down in jeans and trainers and carried her own shopping bags (naturally), but her security held umbrellas over her.

The speculation is that Kate is due on the 13th or 14th July 2013. Not that it really matters because babies very rarely come on time! In fact only 5% are born on their “due date.” I gave birth four days late and only know of one person who’s baby arrived on the due date.

Kate is reported to be craving spicy food and eating a lot of chocolate and sweet things. Yep, sounds sounds about right!

David Walliams becomes a Dad

Also this week David Walliams became a dad. His wife, model Lara Stone (12 years younger), gave birth to a baby boy. No further details have been revealed about the baby but I’m sure it won’t be long until more is announced! They got married in 2010.

In total the presents from the Royal Family and Prime Minister to Obama have totalled £4606.

It turns out that the President and his wife receive so many gifts they don’t usually keep them and instead they end up in the US National Archives.

Here is a full archive of all the gifts ever given to Barack Obama including the gift itself and identity of the donator – it’s an interesting and unusual list of presents!

It’s often very difficult to buy for someone who you think has everything they could possibly need. I’m sure many of us have been in that situation when you don’t have any clue what to get.

Thankfully there is never that problem at Angel Gifts as babies are the easiest of all people to shop for, as well as possibly the most enjoyable!

What would you give someone who had everything?
