Reggaetonera Ivy Queen is one happy mamá after giving birth to a baby girl in Miami early Monday. The 41-year-old singer first revealed her pregnancy to People En Español in June and expressed excitement over becoming a mother.
She and her partner, Puerto Rican choreographer Xavier Sánchez, were low-key about the pregnancy news at first--even keeping it from her mom. Can you even believe that?!Continue Reading >
Oh my goodness, you HAVE to see this gorgeous video of two little twins holding on to each other as they get what seems to be one of the first baths of their very young lives.
Handled oh-so-gently by a loving nurse (who actually filmed the video to demonstrate a new bathing technique for newborns) the little brother/sister team cling to each other. It's not really even clear if they quite understand that they have been born and are longer in momma's belly, especially when the nurse submerges them up to their little faces and they're sort of floating, suspended in a spa bath that looks pretty darn relaxing, I have to say.Continue Reading >
The first thing that comes to mind when I hear about these types of cases is: WHY!? We're in the 21st century! So how is it possible that ANOTHER Mexican woman was forced to give birth right on the street?! Is it that health care workers are dumb or just plain evil? Indolence just is not a good enough reason to explain what happened to poor Ruth Mendoza.Continue Reading >
A 42-year-old grandmother from Lake Elsinore, California, has given birth to her 17th child, an 8-pound baby boy named Vaughn. Christi and her 46-year-old husband David Cason have been featured on a number of television shows and documentaries about large families, including TLC's Kids by the Dozen and National Geographic's Megafamilies. The couple--who is not affiliated with any particular religion--has no plans to prevent future pregnancies. In fact, it appears that they have family dynamics down to a science.Continue Reading >
When Vicki Griffiths realized her baby was born with two full-grown teeth, she could not believe what she was seeing! I've would've freaked out too, but apparently, once in a while, it does happen. I don't want to be rude or anything, but a newborn baby with full-grown teeth is not a normal sight. I guess it's so unnatural that it just look super strange.Continue Reading >
Sivan Dabush, a mom in Israel, recently left hospital nurses and doctors shocked when she gave birth to a baby boy weighing a whopping 14 pounds!
The 31-year-old reportedly gave birth via C-section on Tuesday at Ramban Medical Center and medics say it was one of the largest babies they have ever seen delivered there. In fact, the hospital's neonatal unit didn't even have pajamas big enough for the newborn and had to buy clothes meant for an older infant. Jeez, that's one big baby!Continue Reading >
In case you needed any more proof that women really do have superpower capabilities at times, a Georgia mom recently delivered her own baby in the front of seat of a car that was going 80 MPH on a highway! Does that sound like a scene straight out of a movie or what?!
And just wait ... the story gets way crazier from there.Continue Reading >
In an absolutely miraculous turn of events, an Australian woman, who thought she would never be able to have kids after getting both ovaries removed, is now pregnant with twins! Is that amazing or what?!
Apparently, 24-year-old Vali (her last name has not been released), underwent a procedure to get both of her ovaries removed seven years ago as part of a cancer treatment. At the time, she asked doctors to preserve some of her ovarian tissue just in case--and that request has now changed her life in the best of ways!Continue Reading >
One creative dad-to-be recently captured his wife's pregnancy on camera by turning the entire nine months into an easy, breezy walk in the park ... literally!
As can be seen in the awesome timelapse video below, cinematographer Jesse Beecher records his expecting wife, Lyra, as she takes a one-minute stroll through various streets and parks; well, that's what it seems like anyway!Continue Reading >
You know what drives me crazy? When I'm in a public place where there are kids and someone drops the f-bomb like it's no big thing. Look, I'm a grown up and I'm totally okay using foul language and four letter words, but there is a time a place and doing it in front of kids is just not right. They pick up on these words so quickly. So I watch my mouth around kids because they deserve better than profanity. I think most people with any sense watch their mouth around kids and if they slip, they apologize, but it turns out that perhaps we should all be watching our mouths around pregnant women as well.Continue Reading >
