This Week In Celebrity Baby News – April 22nd

It seems this week there was a constant stream of celebrity baby news! From pregnancy announcements to newborns, Glamorous Paper has all the info about these famous new parents and parents-to-be.

Israel David was born on April 6th.

19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick recently welcomed their first child, Israel David. Jill’s pregnancy and delivery made headlines for a lot of reasons. She got pregnant very soon after marrying her husband, which stirred up some potential controversy. However, Jill had been in the news a lot recently because she was overdue and anxiously awaiting the birth of her son. Her due date was March 24, and Israel’s late arrival was causing everyone to get impatient. When Jill finally went into labor though, the worst part was yet to come. She was in labor for 70 hours (almost three days!) and, despite wanting to have a home birth, was forced to go to the hospital. There, she had an emergency C-section. Now, though, mother and baby are happy and healthy, and the Dillards are now adjusting to the parent life! We wish them all the best.

Speaking of Duggars, Jill’s younger sister Jessa just announced that she and husband Ben Seewald are expecting their first child! The couple was just married in November, and their baby’s due date is actually their first wedding anniversary, November 1st. Right now, Jessa’s dealing with a lot of morning sickness, but other than that she feels great. The couple also is really interested in adopting in the future; they are waiting because the agency requires couples to be married for two years before they are able to adopt. This is very exciting news for the Duggar family, which is just getting bigger and bigger every day.

This past Sunday, Justin Timberlake shared a much anticipated photo of his newborn son with wife Jessica Biel. The pair announced they were expecting in January, and little Silas Randall was finally born mid-April. Many people are thrilled with this post, especially since it is very simple and sweet. Biel and Timberlake were married in 2012 and this is their first child. From the looks of it, they are a very happy family. Hopefully Justin will share more updates with us in the future!

Celebrity Tweets of the Week

Taylor Swift kicked off the day with sharing her strategy for April Fool’s Day. I guess if you are hiding in your kitchen cabinet, you’re a lot less likely to fall for anyone’s tricks. You can always count on Taylor to be hilarious and relatable on Twitter!

Sam Smith’s joke was one of the most controversial celebrity tweets of the day. A few minutes after apparently breaking the news that he was straight, he did a follow-up tweet saying how he was joking. However, the damage had already been done. Many people started attacking him on Twitter saying the joke was in very poor taste, pointing out how sexuality is not something to kid about when people struggle with it every day. Followers also pointed out how sexuality is not a choice, either, which is what they thought Sam was implying with this tweet. Personally, I think he sincerely meant it as a joke and people are blowing this out of proportion. Hopefully he can recover soon from this.

I think someone needs to give Josh Duggar a lesson in pulling a prank… Usually you don’t tell people you’re joking until after the trick has been played. At first glance, it appears that Josh was congratulating his sister Jill Dillard and her husband on twins, which fans knew Jill wasn’t supposed to be expecting. However, he kind of ruined the joke with the #AprilFools, letting all the followers immediately know he was not serious. I’m sure it still did give some fans a surprise for a second, though.

Rainn Wilson took a more serious approach to the pranking, letting his followers know he was quitting Twitter. This was not a cool joke to play, Rainn! What would we do without Dwight Schrute’s hilarious tweets? Thankfully, he was kidding, so there will be plenty more Rainn to come.

Finally, the best trick of all. The ultimate prankster gets pranked back, and he was NOT expecting it. With the help of Jimmy Kimmel’s wife, Rihanna snuck into his room and woke him up by performing her new single, complete with throwing confetti and money at poor, sleeping Jimmy. Take a look at the hilarious result below:
