  • Natalie Cassidy and Marc Humphreys

    EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy has given birth to a baby girl.

    The actor, who plays Sonia in the long-running BBC soap, announced on her Twitter page that she and husband Marc Humphreys had welcomed their daughter.

    "@cameramarc and I introduce Joanie Elizabeth Cassidy-Humphreys... We are all so in love!" Natalie wrote alongside this gorgeous family snap.

    Joanie Elizabeth? What a classic, timeless name. Like an old Hollywood movie star, we'd say. 

    Looks like the LOLs surrounding 'Enders bump cover-up mishap won't last for much longer...

    Congrats 💜

  • Jamie and Jools Oliver

    This was one surprise that Jamie wasn’t expecting. Jamie and Jools Oliver have announced the birth of their fifth baby – and he’s a boy. 

    The couple's representative have confirmed that his name is River Oliver, and fans are still speculating about his middle name.

    Though the couple's four elder children also have nature-inspired names, many seem to think River's name is a nod to the River Cafe in Fulham, where Jamie was reportedly working as a sous chef in 1997, around the time he was picked up to become a TV fave.

    We're not sure, but either way, we totally love them name!

    The birth

    “And then this just happened guys !! IT'S A BABY BOY !!” Jamie posted on Instagram following the birth of their second son on 7 August 2016. The adorable pic of their newborn son, who weighed in at 8lbs, shows him all snug and swaddled.

    “Everyone in the Oliver family is very surprised,” he admitted, suggesting that the Olivers may have been expecting a girl.

    He’d previously implied that he was kind of hoping it might be a little boy, with him and son Buddy feeling a little outnumbered.

    “Buddy and I are overwhelmed and I feel vulnerable," he'd joked. "A little bit of testosterone would really help, I think, and Jools agrees.”

    When Jools was 6 months pregnant, her bump pic got many mums speculating about the sex of her baby – and most got it right, predicting a boy.

    In a gorgeous post-birth message, Jamie praised Jools, describing her as unbelievably composed. He excitedly revealed that their two eldest daughters, Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo, were able to come in at the end of the birth as their new brother was being born, “which was amazing to witness, very, very emotional”.

    Mum Jools also posted an amazing pic on her Instagram, showing her breastfeeding her new baby son. Jools revealed, “so very proud of our two eldest daughters who cut the cord” before adding “Jamie was my hero”.

    Both parents have stated they don’t have a name yet – and there’s quite a lot to live up to – given the names of their four other children – Poppy Honey Rosie, 13, Daisy Boo Pamela, 11, Petal Blossom Rainbow and Buddy Bear Maurice, 5.

    Congratulations all!

  • Paloma Faith

    The Voice judge Paloma Faith has just announced her baby news!

    She and her boyfriend, a French artist named Leyman Lahcine, are expecting their 1st child together. 

    Paloma, 35, wrote a long letter to her fans on Instagram, explaining that she had spent 'her whole life' dreaming of becoming a mother, and that she would not be returning to The Voice or resuming her music career until after her baby had been born.

    She also wrote that she didn't want to face pressure of having to 'look a certain way' or 'being photographed' while pregnant, and that she did not want her child to be in the public eye, as he or she has not chosen to do so.

    We can totally understand Paloma's desire for a 'low key' year or two, though we will be sad not to see her guaranteed-to-be-amazing maternity style.

    Here's wishing Paloma a very happy and healthy pregnancy 💜

      Ellie recently 'fessed up the surprising reason why she's been eating loads of sardines during her pregnancy.

      Well, let's hope she ate as many as she wanted... because People magazine has confirmed that Ellie Kemper has given birth. We can only assume given the news broke on the 1st August, that Ellie gave birth towards the back end of July 2016.
