Liv Tyler Welcomes Daughter Lula Rose

It’s a girl!

Liv Tyler welcomed her third child on Friday, July 8, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Born at 8:48 p.m., daughter Lula Rose Gardner weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz. “The family is ecstatic,” the rep adds.

Lula is the actress’ second child with fiancé David Gardner, with whom she also shares 17-month-old son Sailor Gene.

Tyler is also mom to 11-year-old son Milo while Gardner is dad to son Gray, their children from previous relationships.

Tyler revealed the news on Instagram on Sunday with a sweet photo of Gardner cuddling with the infant, writing, “Hello!!!!! our beautiful baby girl is here !!!! Lula Rose Gardner we are sooooo happy heart exploding with love !!!!!”

Adds Gardner, “Our gorgeous baby girl has arrived “Lula Rose Gardner” unbelievably beautiful, healthy and thank goodness she looks like her Momma !!!! Truly blessed. Daddy’s girl… Now the real work starts training her big brothers to all become Ninjas, Martial Arts Experts & 24-7 Bodyguards !!!”

It’s worth noting that Tyler and Gardner’s children now share the same names as the main characters of Barry Gifford’s famous seven-part novel series, the most famous of which is Wild at Heart, which was adapted into a film by David Lynch in 1990. Is it possible Tyler and Gardner are Gifford fans or do they just like the name?

Tyler, 38, announced her third pregnancy on Instagram in January, posting a stunning black-and-white shot of herself flashing a smile on the beach.

“Oh my goodness it seems the stork is visiting us again!! I am growing another little Tyler Gardner in my belly. Our family is growing!! So grateful,” the Empire Records beauty captioned the photo.

Dad-to-be Gardner, 38, who proposed to Tyler shortly before Sailor’s birth, also shared a color photo of his fiancée on the beach in a yellow bathing suit and white cover-up.

The sports agent/manager wrote, “My beautiful baby is pregnant !!!! Sooooooo excited and so blessed.”

Following Sailor’s birth, Tyler revealed that it was her father who was by her side during the delivery — as well as the person who cut the cord.

“Never in a million years would [I] have thought I’d give birth with my dad and my sister [Mia Tyler], but it was actually really sweet because … we were laughing a lot,” Tyler said in December of Sailor’s unorthodox arrival.

She added, “We don’t always see [Steven Tyler] that often, but when we do, it’s like this magical wizard comes to the house.”

Of motherhood, Tyler told More magazine, “My favorite thing about being a parent is that I learn so much from the push-and-pull dynamic of mother and child. Having children, I learned about my own strength.”

Nicky Hilton Rothschild Welcomes Daughter Lily Grace Victoria

 

Nicky Hilton Rothschild is a mom!

The heiress and her British banker husband James Rothschild welcomed their first child, daughter Lily Grace Victoria Rothschild, on Friday, July 8, in New York City, PEOPLE confirms.

News of the couple’s expanding family was confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE in January. The pair were married in a lavish Kensington Palace ceremony in London last July.

Hilton Rothschild, 32, had an especially chic pregnancy, celebrating with not one but two classy baby showers — one hosted by sister Paris Hilton at New York City’s Waldorf Towers and the other by mom Kathy Hilton at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

She also took on the task of dressing her growing baby bump with enviable style and ease, forgoing most traditional maternity wear in favor of flowy tops and dresses.

“I’ve just been buying clothes that are just a couple of sizes up, and they work,” she told PEOPLE at an N.Y.C. event in May.

And in June, Hilton Rothschild revealed that although she had given in and purchased “one pair of pregnancy jeans, one pair of leggings and one pair of workout leggings,” she had also started raiding her mom’s closet, sharing that the dress she wore to her N.Y.C. baby shower “was [Kathy’s] vintage Valentino.”

The mom-to-be gave her social media followers a glimpse into her baby girl’s nursery, sharing a photo of herself posing in the serene sleep space.

“I love cats so there are lots of vintage cat motifs and prints,” she previously told PEOPLE of the nursery, which she designed herself.

Entertainment Tonight was the first to report the birth.

Kanye and Kim Kardashian West Welcome Son

Kim Kardashian Kanye West welcome son

Christmas came early for the Kardashian West family.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West welcomed their second child, a son, on Saturday morning, Dec. 5, she announced on her website and app.

“Mother and son are doing well,” according to Kardashian West’s website.

Though they haven’t released a name, the couple has promised to steer clear of naming their son South. And while Kardashian West, 35, loved the name Easton, she admitted it likely would not work as West, 38, wasn’t a fan.

“I don’t think we’ll go another direction,” she said.

The newest addition to the family’s annual holiday card joins North, 2, who has been thoroughly prepped for her role as big sister.“We read books with her about getting a baby brother and a new sibling all the time! We always say goodnight to baby brother,” Kardashian West wrote on her website in October.

But giving their baby girl a sibling wasn’t easy.

The couple have been open about the challenges they faced to conceive, including Kardashian West’s successful in vitro fertilization treatment.

“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star told PEOPLE. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”

Kardashian West, who announced her pregnancy in May, later revealed she faced the possibility of a hysterectomy following the birth of her second child.

“They think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told C Magazine in September.

But from the beginning of her pregnancy, Kardashian West opted for tight dresses that showed off her changing shape — a reflection of her confidence.

“This time around, I know what I like — plus, I am confident and not trying to hide my bump. I actually want to accentuate it,” she wrote on her website in September.

And while her baby belly was easily visible in her form-fitting ensembles, the mom-to-be gave everyone a good glimpse at her bare bump during a family vacation in St. Barts, where she opted for itty bitty bikinis while relaxing on the beach.

However, the expectant star went one step further when she dared to bare it all in a nude shot she posted to social media in August. The photo, she explained, was meant to shut down the critics slamming her baby bump.

“I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate,” she wrote. “Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage! I’m going to get even bigger & that’s beautiful too!”

But perhaps one of her most comfortable maternity outfits came courtesy husband West’s closet. In September, Kardashian West stepped out sporting the rapper’s vintage Ramones tee — a far cry from the crop top she wore to dinner days earlier!

In October, Kardashian West celebrated her Troop Beverly Hills-themed baby shower with family and friends.

The final weeks of her pregnancy proved difficult, as she was “feeling fat as f—” and the baby was found to be breech. After undergoing an external cephalic version, Kardashian West’s son turned, much to the relief of his mother.

“It feels so good to not have the stress of thinking I need a C-section,” she wrote on her website and app.

In her final pregnancy update Friday, Kardashian West tweeted, simply, “Ready whenever you are.”

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Tie the Knot

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Are Married: Wedding Details
It’s official: Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are married!

The gorgeous couple tied the knot Sunday during a romantic wedding at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

The ceremony began at 7 p.m. in front of gathered guests, which included Vergara’s Modern Family costars, Reese Witherspoon and Channing Tatum.

Vergara, 43, who recently admitted she had a little bit of “bridezilla” in her and is very detail-oriented, pulled out all the stops for the nuptials. The festivities included a weekend full of fun, including a pool party, a sumptuous rehearsal dinner and a pre-wedding bash that included Manganiello serenading his bride-to-be with “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”

At the Sunday ceremony, Vergara wore a custom Zuhair Murad Couture design as she walked down the aisle. The ceremony was indoors, inside a small area decorated with white roses, orchids and hydrangeas. The actress went without a veil and carried a bouquet of orchids.

Instead of exchanging the typical “I dos,” the couple instead said “I will” in front of a minister and members of the wedding party read passages from the Bible in both Spanish and English. Vergara and Manganiello also recited their own vows. The emotional ceremony included a lot of laughter and happy tears from the guests.

Vergara’s Modern Family costar Julie Bowen recently teased details of the wedding to PEOPLE at an award ceremony in Los Angeles, revealing that the “only thing” she knows is that couple chose not to do official wedding photographs.

Nick Carter, Wife Lauren Kitt Expecting First Child Together

Nick Carter is pregnant

Will it be a Backstreet Boy…or Girl? Nick Carter is expecting his first child with his wife, Lauren Kitt, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. The fitness pro, whom Carter married in April 2014, is about four months pregnant.

“They are so happy and overjoyed,” the insider tells Us of the parents-to-be, who documented their romance on the VH1 reality show I Heart Nick Carter. “They’ve been trying and waiting for such a long time.”

The Backstreet Boys heartthrob, 36, proposed to Kitt, 32, with a 7-carat diamond ring back in February 2013. They said “I do” in a romantic ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif., last year, with his bandmates AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, and Brian Littrell in attendance.

An eyewitness told Us at the time, “They shared the longest wedding kiss I’ve ever seen. A full minute later they were still kissing. They seem crazy in love and thrilled to be married. You could feel the love bursting out of them.”

Indeed, Carter told Yahoo in September 2014 that he sensed Kitt was The One from the first minute they met. “I just felt an instant connection,” he gushed. “It’s like I just wanted to be around her.”

That’s the key, his wife added. “You have to find someone that you love and that loves you just as much. We can spend 24/7 with one another,” she told Yahoo. “I can’t even spend that with my sister or my girlfriends, but I can spend 24/7 with him.”

These days, Carter is devoting at least some of that time to Dancing With the Stars. The boy bander is a contestant on Season 21 of the ABC show, competing with pro partner Sharna Burgess.

Evangeline Lilly

A little one for Lilly! Evangeline Lilly has welcomed her second child with her longtime partner, Norman Kali.

Images of the Ant-Man actress sunning herself in a floral purple bikini, seemingly post-baby, while in Hawaii on Wednesday, Oct. 22, were obtained by E! News.

The Lost alum, 35, revealed she was pregnant again when she attended the Hollywood premiere of her movie Ant-Man back in June. She wore a stunning black-and-white Halston Heritage gown – with her baby bump in tow!

The Canadian actress and Kali are already parents to 4-year-old son Kahekili, who arrived after a 30-hour home birth in May 2011.

“Eight hours of pushing, that’s the part that men don’t understand. Women go, ‘Oh, dear, oh, dear God, eight hours of pushing?’ And the men are like, ‘Okay, eight hours of pushing,'” Lilly said on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in October 2011.

“After about five hours of pushing, my midwife and my birthing assistant said, ‘You know, we have a few suggestions,'” she added, joking: “And I was like, ‘Really? After five hours of pushing you have a few suggestions? You couldn’t have told me five minutes in?'”

During The Tonight Show, Lilly also said she hopes to have a “brood” of children. She quipped: “How many are on a basketball team?”

Lilly was previously married to Murray Hone from 2003 to 2004 and dated her Lost costar Dominic Monaghan from 2004 to 2007.
