Celebrity baby news: Sam Faiers, Beyonce and Hayden Panettiere
ALS Ice Bucket Challenge revelations, baby announcements and adorable Instagram pics: here's all the celeb news you missed this week!
Beyonce shares new Blue Ivy pic
In the midst of continued divorce rumours, Beyonce has once again taken to her personal website and social media accounts to stop speculation that her 12-year relationship with Jay-Z is coming to an end.
Whilst we’re used to matching dresses and enviable holiday snaps from Beyonce’s Instagram page, this time, the Drunk In Love singer shared a grainy photograph of her daughter Blue Ivy’s feet in a pair of navy floral print sneakers.
She also included photos of Jay-Z’s feet and her own in a pair of chunky sandals on her Tumblr site. We're not sure what it means, but it's clear that 2-year-old Blue has inherited her mum's colourful style.
Recently, dad-of-two Will Smith challenged the couple to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. We’ll have to wait and see if they’re willing to get their feet wet!

Milla Jovovich announces 2nd pregnancy
It’s a big day for fans of the Resident Evil horror movie franchise.
The good news is that the film’s star Milla Jovovich is expecting another child with her husband, the film’s director Paul W S Anderson. The less good (but understandable in the circs) news is that the couple have decided to postpone filming the sequel Resident Evil: The Final Chapter until the baby is born.
Actress Milla confirmed the happy news of her 2nd pregnancy on Facebook, writing, "This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… my husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!"
Though the former model was sad to admit that the movie’s production would have to be postponed for up to a year, there's definitely a good reason behind it.
"Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn’t think pregnancy and zombie-killing were the best combo!"
Milla and Paul already have a 6-year-old daughter called Ever Gabo Anderson.
Hayden Panettiere confirms pregnancy with ALS challenge
We think we’ve known about actress Hayden Panettiere's pregnancy for a while, but the Heroes star has finally confirmed her pregnancy – by nominating her unborn child in the social media craze ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
It's becoming a popular way to announce good news, as Avatar actress Zoe Saldana was also filmed (finally) confirming her pregnancy during the same challenge earlier in the week.
For those who don’t know, it’s where people nominate their friends to have a bucket of ice water thrown all over them to raise awareness about Motor Neurone Disease and encourage donations to charity.
The video was posted by Cheryl Cole’s former BFF Derek Hough, who joked on Twitter that mum-to-be Hayden had ‘gone into labour’ right after completing the challenge.
This baby is the first child for 24-year-old Hayden and her Ukrainian boxer fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.

Hilary Duff shares cute pics and videos of son Luca
It's no secret that singer/actress Hilary Duff likes to share photos of her son, Luca on her Instagram page. And why wouldn’t she? Her 3-year-old is super cute!
Her latest snaps show mother and son sharing a sweet kiss while the sun goes down, with Hilary captioning the beachside photo with the old saying "Kiss me, you fool". A week before, Hilary grabbed her waterproof camera and snapped her "lilone" playing under the sea.

She also shared a selfie, where Luca looks a little bit stressed over an episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. "Don’t know where he gets this drama from,"she joked.
Perhaps the most adorable video of little Luca shows him in garden holding onto a hose, ready to spray his mum with cold water. Hilary tells him, "You can’t spray me", but Luca’s reaction is priceless (and hilarious)!

Sam Faiers buys out Selfridges for baby Nelly!
It seems that while TOWIE star Billie Faiers was taking a break after a busy start to motherhood, her sister Sam decided to splurge on her niece Nelly during the newborn's first ever shopping trip to Selfridges.
It was obviously a successful trip: we can barely see baby Nelly under that mountain of shopping bags!
Snapping a pic of Nelly’s on-trend iCandy buggy - which is very different to the Silver Cross pram we've seen Billie use in the past - Sam tweeted: "My little Nelly's first time shopping at Selfridges. She has been such a good little lady. #niece #familyday #shopping #fashion."
We can't help but wonder what they bought...
