Gwen Stefani was ready for her third baby boy to make his arrival, as she shared this photo on Twitter on Feb. 20 with the caption, "Somebody please pop me soon."
The 44-year-old No Doubt singer got her wish, as she welcomed her third son on Feb. 28. Daddy Gavin Rossdale shared the big baby name reveal via Twitter.
@gwenstefani welcome APOLLO BOWIE FLYNN ROSSDALE ?????? 2/28/14 ?????? (bowie and Flynn =mothers' maiden names )— GAVIN ROSSDALE (@GavinRossdale) March 1, 2014
Baby Apollo Bowie Flynn joins big brothers Kingston, 7, and Zuma Nesta Rock, 5.
Rossdale explained the middle name of Bowie and Flynn, referring to their mothers ‘ maiden names, however no word on the inspiration behind Apollo.
Stefani and Rossdale like edgy names, so we aren’t too surprised that the couple picked a unique name — in fact, it would have been even more odd if his name were George or Thomas. Apollo is a strong name and in Greek mythology, Apollo was the god of medicine and healing who drove his fiery chariot (the sun) through the sky.
In the weeks leading up to the birth, Stefani made sure to fit in plenty of bonding time with Kingston and Zuma.

We can't wait to see the first photo of baby Apollo! In the meantime, do you like the name — or do you think it is a little too "out there?"
Drew, Reese and Cameron’s Girls' Trip
Our invitation must have been lost in the mail! However, a pregnant Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz had a girls' trip to Napa — and they are sharing it all on Twitter and Instagram (so we kind of feel like we are there with them).
“Love learning with these ladies,” Witherspoon captioned the photo with Barrymore and Diaz, along with stylist Leslie Fremar and makeup artists Gucci Westman and Lona Vigi, who all wore chef’s hats. The girls stayed at the Meadowood Napa Valley resort and spa, and took cooking classes at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.
Diaz shared a photo of pregnant Barrymore navigating around her baby bump as she makes pasta.
“@drewbarrymore maimg the pasta FRESH!!!” Diaz captioned the photo.
Of course, no girls' trip would be complete without noshing on some yummy food!
“Tacos gracias,” wrote Witherspoon, as the group posed together in front of a taco truck.
The high-profile group was also spotted visiting Opus One Winery and Maisonry while in Napa.
Even though the trip is over, Diaz summed up the trip well with her tweet.
What an amazingly delicious, educational, and ridiculously FUN time I had with these awesome ladies!!!… http://t.co/cxrNwrYgRW— Cameron (@CameronDiaz) March 5, 2014
Last year, the girls went to Mexico — and we will look for our invitation in the mail for next year’s trip!
Rachel ZoeMarch 4, 2014
Rachel Zoe shared this adorable photo of her 2-month-old baby Kaius as he joins her at work. No word if his big brother, almost 3-year-old Skyler, joined in on the fun.
Zoe is doing what many working moms are doing — juggling motherhood with her busy work schedule. Zoe recently canceled her New York Fashion Week appearance in February, saying it was a “difficult decision.”
"As a new mother, my newborn son is too young to travel with me and I'm unable to leave him for the amount of time required to appropriately prepare for the show in New York,” she said in a statement.
