Another celeb who has welcomed a little girl into his life is actor Joseph Fiennes.

More baby news was announced this week from Shopaholic series author Sophie Kinsella. The writer, whose real name is Madeleine Wickham shared her nappy news on her website. “This has been an amazingly busy year for me – and it’s about to get busier! Next month…I’ll be having a new baby!”

The 40-year-old Chick Lit star is already mum to sons Freddy, Hugo and Oscar with her husband Henry Wickham.


Elsewhere in LA, singer Jessica Simpson has revealed her desire to have babies – and her backup plan if she doesn’t find Mr.Right to have them with! “If I don’t have children by the time I’m 40, my gay best friend Ken Paves and I are going to have children,” the 29-year-old shared. Hairdresser and Stylist Ken is fully supportive of the idea as he added, “I’m trying to convince her to go for a baby before I turn 40!”  No pressure then.
