Bruce Willis and Emma Heming welcome a baby girl

Bruce Willis and Emma Heming

Bruce Willis is a daddy once again: He and wife Emma Heming welcomed a baby girl on Sunday, naming her Mabel Ray Willis.

The two "are overjoyed about the newest member of their family," their rep told People on Monday, adding that mother and baby were doing well.

The "Die Hard" actor, 57, and Heming-Willis, 33, a Malta-born model and designer, were married in March 2009 in the Turks and Caicos, where Willis owns a place; this is a first child for them.

Willis, however, has three other daughters with ex-wife Demi Moore, ages 23, 20 and 18.

So tell us in comments: Does "Mabel" live up to the quirky Willis naming tradition, up against Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, or is it a "one of these things is not like the others" situation?

'Octomom' Nadya Suleman's panty pictures were to pay the rent?

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman

For "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, posing nearly naked for cash appears to have been on behalf of the babies: The mother of 14, eight months behind on her mortgage, is facing eviction as early as this week, her lawyer said.

"We are working on it," attorney Jeff Czech said Tuesday, referring to a foreclosure notice the tabloid sensation received recently regarding her four-bedroom La Habra home. "The foreclosure sale is not likely this month," he said, but next.

Suleman reportedly got about $10,000 to pose in nude panties and not much else for the British magazine Closer, sources told TMZ, an amount that would allow her to move into a rental home.

Octomom told the mag -- which calls her, delightfully, "Octomum" -- that she doesn't take state aid, supporting her large family instead off of paid interviews and photo shoots, because she can't hold a regular job with all of her children. Her octuplets were born in 2009, with the other six children coming from five pregnancies, starting with her first son's birth in 2001.

Also in the Closer interview, Suleman bragged about her post-baby body, her celibacy and her parenting skills, pointing out that "I've trained them so well, they can brush their own teeth, dress themselves and scrub each other’s backs –- they’re so independent."

And as for the kids' general lot in life? "I can’t believe how fortunate they are, too," she said. "I'd love to be an octuplet -- their camaraderie and bond is amazing. They look out for each other; they're so lucky.”

In 2009 Suleman turned down a $1-million offer from Vivid Entertainment to do a hard-core porn movie, and last September her real estate agent was trying to leverage her fame to help sell the house.

Alicia Silverstone goes mouth-to-mouth to feed son Bear Blu

Alicia Silverstone

Alicia Silverstone has a reputation for doing things her own way when it comes to food, and now the vocal vegan is taking it to the next generation — by chewing her son's Bear Blu's chow for him and serving him mouth-to-mouth.

Think mommy bird, baby bird. Just don't think too hard or you might hurt yourself. Or at least hurt your chances of having a pleasant dinner.

"I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon," Silverstone wrote Friday on her blog, the Kind Life, where she also shared video in a post titled "Breakfast With Baby Bear."

"Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It's his favorite...and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating."

Silverstone wrote that the video, which we've got for you below, was taken a couple of months ago when the kiddo, was still wobbly, but says, "Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!" The tot, her child with hubby Christopher Jarecki, turns 1 year old in May.

Suddenly, word that new mom January Jones has been swallowing capsules filled with her own placenta doesn't sound quite that offbeat.

Charlize Theron talks motherhood, Kristen Stewart with Seacrest

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron has long been a fashion plate, but her favorite look these days? Swaddling clothes for the new baby.

The Oscar winner called in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show Friday morning to discuss the whirlwind week she's had thanks to the announcement of her adopting a 4-month-old little guy named Jackson.

"It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations," she said. "Everyone’s just been so lovely, so it’s been really nice." 

This is the first child for single Theron, who has several films slated for premiere in the coming months. In addition to acting, she's got a charitable foundation helping African youth avoid HIV/AIDS and is the face of Dior fragrance J'Adore.

"I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling is pretty amazing. It looks a bit like a straitjacket ... but for some reason they just love it," she said of the practice in which an infant is  wrapped tightly in a blanket. Some say the practice helps babies fall asleep -- and stay that way.

While she's a nurturing mom at home, come May we'll see Charlize as the Evil Queen in "Snow White and the Huntsman." For her thoughts on working with "Twilight Saga" star Kristen Stewart, check out her full Seacrest interview, below.

Charlize Theron has a big new role — mom to a baby boy!

The Oscar winner announced she's adopted a boy named Jackson, making it the first child for the single "Young Adult" star.

"She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy," her rep said in a statement. 

No additional details are available about Charlize's little bundle, but she'll be one busy mama in the coming months. Theron will premiere "Snow White and the Huntsman," costarring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, in London in May.

In June, the sci-fi epic "Prometheus" with Michael Fassbender will hit theaters. Congrats to mom and baby!

Diane von Furstenberg: Leave Angelina Jolie and her leg alone

If Angelina Jolie wants anyone in her corner after that business about her leg at last Sunday's Academy Awards, it's Diane von Furstenberg. 

The Ministry caught up with the legendary designer in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she said she doesn't quite understand why Angie and her limbs are under attack.

"She's always so gorgeous," Von Furstenberg said at the launch of GapKids + DVF, her chic children's line for the retailer. "I don't know why, but I think people are just not nice to her." 

And as a woman who has just created a collection for children, she's not having any of this Angelina teasing.

At shopping mecca The Grove, Von Furstenberg turned up to greet celeb fans like a pregnant Molly Sims, Busy Philipps, Alyson Hannigan, Tiffani Thiessen and "Entourage" star Constance Zimmer. 

Not your normal petting zoo fare, the DVF bunch kept it glamorous with a mini-runway for kids to strut down and a makeup station, and passed snacks like vegetable cut-outs and mac 'n' cheese. 

Motherhood being another job Angelina is highly associated with, we asked Von Furstenberg the value of raising children with their own unique stlye, like Jolie and Brad Pitt's Shiloh. 

"The only thing that matters is that your kids are happy with who they are," Von Furstenberg said.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's baby name is ... not weird!

Jennifer Garner has baby boy

Ben Affleck has announced the name of his and Jennifer Garner's baby boy, and guess what? The name is normal!

Actually, the name is Samuel, but in the celebrity baby ranks, "Samuel" is about as normal as it gets.

"We are happy to announce on Feb. 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," the new dad said Wednesday on Facebook. News of the baby's arrival leaked on Tuesday.

Little Sam -- we hope they call him Sam -- was reportedly born in Santa Monica, and joins older sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3. Garner and Affleck, who started dating in 2004, got married in June 2005.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck welcome a baby boy

It's a boy for Ben Affleck and Jen Garner

This post has been corrected, as detailed below.

For Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, the third time means a charming baby boy.

The couple have reportedly welcomed another addition to their household. Daughters Violet and Seraphina have a Santa Monica-born baby brother, according to several outlets, all citing a source close to the couple. 

"It would be so weird to have a boy," Garner told Ellen DeGeneres in September as she and her husband were used to an all-girl house. She said at the time Ben would be thrilled at the news because he'd have someone to enjoy baseball with.   

Garner's rep did not immediately return the Ministry's request for comment. 

[For the record, 9:15 a.m. Feb. 29: An earlier version of this post misspelled Ben Affleck's last name  as Afflect.]

Beyonce working on two new albums (and Blue Ivy diaper duty)

Beyonce has two albums in the works
Clearly nothing can slow down Beyonce. The superstar and brand new mom has two new music projects in the works, according to one producer, as well as a film and raising daughter Blue Ivy.

Welcoming the little one on January 7 with husband Jay-Z, Beyonce was presumably tucked high above Manhattan changing diapers and cooing over little Blue's adorable face -- but a diva is a diva.

"The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening," said Ryan Tedder, frontman of the band OneRepublic, tapped by the superstar to contribute.

"All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have, and she's this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in."

Tedder added that the material he's been writing focuses on parenthood. There's also speculation that one of the projects he's helping Bey with could be the motion picture soundtrack for Clint Eastwood's "A Star Is Born" update -- that has Beyonce at the lead.

That's a little more on her plate than dance class and PTA meetings, but she's Beyonce -- she's built for this, no?

Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston's daughter, hospitalized

Bobbi Kristina Brown and Whitney Houston

Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was rushed to the hospital Sunday morning, the day after her mother died in a Beverly Hills hotel room.

A reportedly alert Bobbi Kristina, 18, was taken out of the Beverly Hilton on a stretcher and transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center around 10:30 a.m., L.A. Now reports. Though police didn't give details, a US Weekly source said she was being treated for stress.

She'd been in the lobby of the hotel Saturday when word came that her mother had been found unresponsive, a source told People, and was turned away from her mother's hotel room hours later after what TMZ characterized as an angry shouting match with police outside the door. Bobbi Kristina had screamed, cursed and demanded to see her mother, TMZ reported.

"Her life will be shattered," a source told US Weekly on Saturday. "Bobbi was always by [Whitney's] side in everything she did."

Brown and Houston were married in 1992 and divorced in 2007. Bobbi Kristina is their only child, and according to US Weekly senior editor Ian Drew, speaking to ABC News, "basically grew up her mother's caretaker ....In a way she was the adult in relationship."
Bobbi Kristina will turn 19 in March.
