Kate Upton Gives Birth to First Child!

The woman who many consider to be the world’s most perfect looking human just gave birth to an absolute perfect baby.

Indeed, congratulations are in order for Kate Upton:

The supermodel just gave birth to her very first child!

The 26-year old shared the blessed news on Saturday evening, alerting Instagram followers to the name and the gender of her and husband Justin Verlander’s precious offspring.

We’ll let Upton take it from here…

“Genevieve Upton Verlander. 11.7.18,” Kate simply wrote, confirming that the newborn came into official existence this past Wednesday.

She included with this message a gorgeous black-and-white snapshot of little Genevieve…

… and here it is!

Well done, Kate and Justin.

Verlander, who works as one of the best starting pitchers in all of Major League Baseball, posted a photo of the couple holding their little one’s hand.

He wrote as a caption:

“Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my [heart] the first second I met you!!! 11.7.2018.”

Verlander also penned a sweet message to Upton after the couple confirmed her pregnancy in July.

“You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!! I can’t wait to start this new journey with you!” he gushed on Instagram at the time, adding:

“You’re the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I’ve ever met! I’m so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much.”

Upton and Verlander got married the knot in Tuscany, Italy, in November of 2017, mere days after the pitcher and the Houston Astros won the 2017 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

During the baseball season that recently concluded, Verlander credited Upton for turning both his career and his life around.

Speaking to Bleacher Report about his outlook after going through multiple injuries, Verlander said the following a few months ago:

“Who knows if I’m even here if it wasn’t for her?

“I really thought it was the end. … She was instrumental in me not … like, jumping off a bridge.”

Wow, huh?

And now she’s also been also rather instrumental in Verlander becoming a dad.

We send these two our very best wishes.

Ryan Edwards: Will He Miss the Birth of His Son While In Rehab?

As we reported earlier today, Ryan Edwards is headed back to rehab.

If you’ve been following the sad saga of Edwards’ downward spiral, you know that’s undeniably good news.

Edwards has been arrested three times in the past 18 months as a result of his addictions, and his erratic behavior has endangered his loved ones on multiple occasions.

So it’s encouraging to learn that he’s finally getting serious about getting sober.

But the road to recovery is never an easy one, and according to a new report from Radar Online, Edwards will be making a major sacrifice early on in his sobriety journey.

Edwards’ wife, Mackenzie Standifer, is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child.

(Ryan and Mackenzie each have one child from previous relationships.)

Unfortunately, Edwards will be in treatment for the foreseeable future, and one insider tells Radar that Mackenzie is less than one week away from. giving birth.

“Mackenzie is expected to be induced on October 8,” says the source.

“She is naming her son Jagger Ryan Edwards.”

The insider goes on to confirm that Mackenzie has no expectation that Ryan will be present when her son enters the world:

“I believe her mom and her aunt will be in the delivery room with her,” the source adds.

Not only will Ryan miss the birth of his child, it may be several months before he even meets little Jagger.

“[Ryan] isn’t supposed to be out [of rehab] until February or March,” a different insider claims.

Meanwhile, it remains unclear if Ryan and Mackenzie are still a couple.

One source claims that even before Ryan checked into rehab, he and Mackenzie were no longer living together.

“Mackenzie moved out of the lake house they were living in,” the insider says.

“[She] is now living with her parents.”

Despite that development, Mackenzie recently claimed that she and Ryan are still going strong:

“I’m so sorry but I will continue to stand up for what I believe in no matter how chopped, edited, and jumbled it may be,” Standifer wrote in an Instagram post.

“I have stuck by my husband through some of the darkest times imaginable,” she added.

“Have mistakes been made? Hell yes,” Standifer continued.

“Have they been accounted for, dealt with and resolved, yep.”

So it sounds like, for the time being at least, Mackenzie is planning to ride this thing out.

We wish her and Ryan all the best through the difficult time ahead.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Jill Duggar Announces Birth of Another Family Baby!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are already parents to Israel and Samuel, and have taught their boys all about “God’s plan for sex” using a hate-filled children’s book.

It turns out that this fundamentalist take on sex education came just in time, because the Dillard family had another baby on the way.

Now, Jill has gleefully announced, the new baby has been born.

“So excited for another Dillard baby!! …” Jill wrote on Instagram beside a black-and-white photo of the newborn.

The baby, of course, is not hers.

Jill’s post continued: “Congrats @deena.dillard and @justdand.”

Those are Denna and Dan Dillard, her in-laws through her husband, Derick.

She also shared her nephew’s name, writing: “We can’t wait to meet baby Jax!”

Jill concluded her congratulatory post with the hashtags: “#firstDillardcousin #jaxonmichaeldillard”

Jax’s mom also had some happy words to share.

“We are so excited to introduce Jaxon Michael Dillard to the world,” Deena writes on Instagram.

“He came at 9:11pm on Sept 5th,” Deena shares. “He weighs 6lbs 7oz and is 19 inches long.”

“He’s absolutely perfect in every way,” Deena gushes. Awww!

“During our skin to skin time,” Deena adds. “@justdand prayed the sweetest prayer of thanksgiving and blessing over our little family.”

“We are so grateful for God’s sweet blessing of Baby Jax,” Deena concludes.

Not content to write an Instagram post, Jill also took to her family blog to congratulate Deena and Dan.

“We are so excited for Dan and Deena (Derick’s brother and sister-in-law) on their new arrival!” Jill writes.

“Israel and Samuel are thrilled to have their first Dillard cousin,” Jill adds. “And we are so excited to have our first Dillard nephew!”

Jill reveals that they haven’t seen little Jax in person yet, but writes: “We all look forward to meeting him soon!”

“Y’all are such great parents already and we are so happy for you,” Jill writes to the new parents. “Welcome to this wonderful parenting journey!”

Jill and Derick and Deena and Dan are no strangers to congratulating each other.

“I would like to wish my sister-in-law @jillmdillard the happiest of birthdays!” Deena wrote on Jill’s birthday, back in May.

Though Derick’s bigoted attacks had gotten the couple in trouble, Deena sang Jill’s praises, writing: “She is a wonderful mother who loves Jesus so much!”

Deena even praised Jill and Derick’s missionary work, adding: “She’s even willing to raise her kiddos in the most challenging conditions in order to bring the Gospel to the nations.”

“We are blessed to know her,” Deena concluded at the time.

Derick and Jill are controversial, even compared to other Duggar family couples.

Their missionary work raised some eyebrows from fans who are concerned about their parenting — and from others who want to know why the couple is always begging fans for cash.

Derick’s transphobic attacks on fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings were not only despicable (what grown man tweets attacks on a teenage girl?), but ended the couple’s reality television career.

A lot of fans — even those who genuinely like Derick and Jill despite everything — aren’t confident that they know what they’re doing when it comes to raising children.

But it’s nice to see them celebrate a normal family milestone. They have their very first Dillard nibling! Maybe their kids will be close with Jax.

Audrey Roloff Shares Ember’s Birth Story, Keeps It Very Real

Audrey Roloff is nothing if not an open book.

The former Little People, Big World cast member talks often about her faith and her family and how the two nearly always intertwine.

The mother of one also talks about parenthood on a frequent basis, ever since welcoming daughter Ember into the world in September of 2017.

Now, in a very personal and impressive blog post, Audrey has opened way up about her actual birthing experience.

It's a bit graphic in detail and you can read the full entry HERE.

But we've shared a handful of excerpts below in order to help Audrey relay her experience to the fans and followers who are either interested or who may even benefit from this kind of information…

1. This is How Audrey Opened Her Lengthy Post:

Audrey in labor
I am just now finally getting around to sharing her birth story. WOW! It has taken me an entire year to finish it. Sigh. Guess that’s just reality as a new mom, going through two remodels, writing our first book, keeping always more and beating50percent a float, while trying to maintain sanity and some resemblance of a social life. The past year has been exhausting, thrilling, tearful, and full of treasured moments. But perhaps the most treasured moment was September 10th, 2017

2. I Will Not Be Sugar Coating the Messy Reality of Birth…

On the day of embers birth
So Audrey warned, prior to getting into said details as follows: “By the time I was 10 days overdue, I was trying whatever the internet suggested about naturally inducing labor. Pineapple, spicy food, bouncing on the ball, taking baths, long walks, raspberry leaf tea, acupuncture, and sex, but still no baby. I remember reading comments on social media, and even receiving texts from friends, who had some opinions about my desire to wait for our baby to come naturally… Of course. I would not put our baby in danger if I did indeed need to be medically induced. But I also knew lots of women who were impatiently or unnecessarily induced early, and I wanted to avoid that. So I kept surrendering and trusting in God’s timing for our daughters birth.”

3. She’s Finally on the Way!

Showing off bend
“I woke up at 2:30 am to what I thought was just intense cramping. I had experienced some pretty intense cramping the past couple of nights so I didn’t think too much of it at first, but after a few minutes I quickly realized this was different. MUCH different. This was the blinding ambush. IT WAS TIME!!! I reached over into my nightstand drawer and grabbed a sharpie to write my life mantra on my arm – ALWAYS MORE. I knew that this day, more than any other day, I needed to be reminded that I ALWAYS had MORE strength, endurance, and hope through Christ.”

4. What They Decided:

“Jeremy and I wanted our labor and delivery experience to be a calm, low stress, and intimate experience between the two of us. That meant no family, friends, or cameras in the delivery room. We wanted to bring our daughter into the world together without having to think or worry about anything or anyone else. Just Jeremy and I, intimately experiencing the most defining moment of our lives together.”

5. More Specifics:

“Our birth plan was essentially to have a low-intervention, unmedicated birth at the hospital with the help of our doula Echo, essential oils, prayer, and a jammin’ Spotify playlist.”11

6. Why Did She Opt for an Unmedicated Birth?

Strong audrey
“I didn’t want labor to solely be something I went through, while Jeremy watched from a chair. I wanted for him to be an active participant. I wanted for him to feel needed and important during the whole process – and he was. Laboring with Jeremy was was the most intimate, unifying, God-empowering, thing we have ever done together.”

Chelsea Houska: Has She Given Birth to Baby #3?!

Chelsea Houska might the most private of all the Teen Moms, but with 5.3 million followers on Instagram and another 1.8 million on Twitter, it’s not easy for her to keep secrets.

Chelsea’s fans follow her every move, and when she goes silent on social media — however briefly — they immediately begin to suspect something is up.

Houska is pregnant with her third child, and when she went a few hours without posting yesterday — as human beings with jobs and social lives tend to — many jumped to the conclusion that she had gone into labor.

That may seem a bit extreme, but such is the life of a reality star in 2018.

The cameras might stop rolling between seasons, but with a web presence that massive, you’re always in the spotlight.

The speculation started innocently enough, with one fan tweeting:

“@ChelseaHouska hasn’t been tweeting too much lately. Baby time?”

This led to the creation of a subreddit with the title “Chelsea Has Been Quiet On Social Media – Think She Had Her Baby?”

Of course, it wasn’t just Chelsea’s digital silence that led fans to the conclusion that she’s in labor.

Houska’s due date is fast approaching and she delivered her first two children ahead of schedule.

She recently tweeted that she had reached the “over it” stage of her pregnancy, which led some to the conclusion that she expected to deliver soon.

On top of that, it would make sense for Houska to keep the big news to herself until after she’s home from the hospital.

Chelsea has had scary encounters with fans in the past, which is one of the reasons she keeps a lower profile than her co-stars.

Ironically, that move has led to increased scrutiny of her personal life.

In other words, while it was a bit crazy for fans to just assume Chelsea was in labor, we can see the thinking that led to that conclusion.

Alas, it seems all the words of congratulations were a bit premature.

“I can promise everyone that whenever I AM in labor…nobody will know..and there def won’t be posts and silly little articles about it,” Chelsea tweeted last night.

But fear not, Chelsea obsessives:

We’ll keep an eye on the situation to ensure that when Chelse does welcome her third child, we’ll have a silly little article about it ASAP.
