2017’s second-most important set of celebrity twins will soon be upon us, which means it’s time for an update on how George Clooney and Amal Clooney are getting ready. George and Amal are famous people, which means their baby prep is a little fancier than cursing wildly while trying to assemble a Sniglar from IKEA and trying to remember where they put their damn DockATot.
However, just because George and Amal are rich people doesn’t mean they’re currently interviewing a team of nannies so that the paps don’t catch them looking like sleep-deprived zombies during their next photo-op. A source tells E! News that George and Amal won’t be hiring a live-in nanny or a full-time nanny. Instead, they’ll have a short-term night nurse who will help set a sleeping schedule. Amal’s mom Baria Alamuddin will most likely help out with the twins as well.
Amal, who is planning on giving birth in London, will go back to work after six months, but the source says she’ll work mostly from home.
George Clooney’s pre-babies life has been Italian vacations and chugging Casamigos tequila. Twin babies are going to be the most work he’s done in…ever, maybe? George and Amal might not hire a nanny for the babies, but I don’t think it will be long before Amal hires one for George. “George, you must be exhausted. Let’s get you out of those barf-stained clothes and into a hammock for a nap.”
When Zooey Deschanel got knocked up two years ago, I naturally assumed she would give it an extremely precious name, and she didn’t disappoint. Zooey and her husband Jacob Pechenik named their daughter Elsie Otter.
Zooey got pregnant again and her rep confirmed to People that she gave birth to her second child in Los Angeles last week. Zooey went full-Zooey with this new baby’s name too. I’m starting to think Zooey might be taking her baby naming inspiration from the first three letters of her name. Because just like her first baby, this new baby is also named after a zoo animal.
Zooey gave birth to a baby boy that she and Jacob named Charlie Wolf Pechenik.
If Zooey was trying to relaunch The Get Along Gang, she’s going the right way for it. Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf sound like two scrappy problem-solving critters who end every day with a hug and a song about a moral. When explaining Elsie’s middle name, she claimed she picked it because otters are sweet and smart. I wonder why they chose wolf? Maybe Baby Charlie came out howling instead of crying or got weird the night of the first full moon.
All I know is that now Zooey and Jacob are pretty much locked into this whole Pacific Northwest animal middle name theme. Hopefully if there’s a next time, she thinks about naming her third baby after one of the Pacific Northwest’s less-popular residents: the Banana Slug. Poor ol’ banana slug gets no love.
Before we get to Alaskan Abstinence Queen Bristol Palin’s third child, let’s quickly remind ourselves of some of the hunting store employee-sounding names that will be greeting it on the Palin Family Tree.
Oh that’s all just terrific. 26-year-old Bristol Palin and her 28-year-old husband of almost a year Dakota Meyer became parents again. Bristol had a girl. This is their second baby together. They have a 1-year-old daughter named Sailor Grace, and Bristol has 9-year-old Tripp Easton with Levi Johnston. Bristol announced her new baby on Instagram yesterday. And what did they name their baby?
“Welcome to the world Atlee Bay“
Sarah Palin congratulated Bristol on her latest baby with a statement released via The Daily Mail saying: “Babies are the best ingredient in our world, and we’re blessed to help welcome Atlee Bay to it. The whole family couldn’t be more thrilled!”
The only thing that matters here is that name. Atlee Bay Meyer. First name Atlee, middle name Bay. That name sounds like something thought up by the Taylee/McKarty lady after driving past an insurance company. Atlee Bay is Bristol’s kid, but it could also be the most highly discounted area rug brand on Overstock.com. It looks like a Google translate mistake. It’s a perfect name for a Palin.
Ian Somerhalder and his wife of two years Nikki Reed both announced on their own Instagrams today that she’s pregnant with a baby that will probably be born with a permanent 5 o’clock shadow like their dad. Both Ian and Nikki posted that picture of him smelling her baby dome area while she works some kind of LDS birthing gown. Or maybe that’s what Nikki ended up with when she tried to recreate Jennifer Lopez’s Met Gala dress using old hospital gowns.
It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and my brain forgotten about him. And today we’ve got the news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to be a father again. Okay, universe, message received: I remember Joseph Gordon-Levitt! JGL was seen walking around in Beverly Hills yesterday with his robotics expert wife Tasha McCauley, who happened to look pregnant. His rep confirmed to E! News that that’s exactly what is going on there.

Nothing else is known about JGL and Tasha’s new baby, and it’ll definitely stay that way. JGL got married in secret and the name of his almost 2-year-old son is a mystery. I appreciate JGL’s desire to keep his life to himself, but this really opens the ongoing debate as to whether fame is a nature vs. nurture situation. There’s a chance JGL’s new baby might not want to live such a private life. Who knows? That new baby could pop out and the first thing it reaches for is a phone to call Harvey Levin and “leak” its own birth details to TMZ.
This story is going to be a real emotional roller coaster for any of the following: people who cry at sad stories, people who cry at happy stories, people who cry seeing pictures of smiling babies, people who cry when they see Jimmy Kimmel cry.
