Dawn O’Porter Welcomes Baby Boy

dawn o'porter and chris o'dowd on red carpet

Forget the Superbowl, this weekend was celebrity baby news central.

First, Chris O’Dowd and Dawn O?Porter announced the birth of their son. Dawn actually gave birth to a boy named Art in Los Angeles last week, but the couple only shared the news with their fans last night.

Both parents took to Twitter to belatedly announce the arrival of baby Art. Dawn, who has our favourite Twitter handle of all time @hotpatooties, joked that they’ll ‘definitely keep him.? Chris went down the slapstick route with a photoshopped anonymous baby wearing his facial hair and Dawn’s signature bob. The actor deadpanned, ?I’m pretty sure he’s ours.?

 

 

Yesterday, in yet more celebrity baby news, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel took to Instagram to confirm pregnancy rumours that had surrounded the couple these past few months. Justin uploaded a photo for his 34th birthday of him kissing his wife’s bare bump with the caption,

?Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl?#YouNeverKnow?#WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets?

The couple are usually very private by Hollywood standards and have generally shunned the spotlight since their 2012 marriage. This broadcasting was as out of the blue as whatever filter JT used. Congratulations to Jessica and Justin!

 

 

And in the final bump update, Waka Waka singer Shakira and her footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique welcomed their second son late last week. The Daily Mail reports the baby was delivered by Caesarean section in a Barcelona hospital, of which they rented an entire floor. The couple met when Shakira recorded the World Cup anthem and already have a son named Milan.
