It was a baby boom on the twitter feeds this week of some of our favorite celebrity moms. Kendra Wilkinson welcomed a baby girl and, as promised, gave her a cute tomboy name. Pregnant reality star JWoww shared photos of her Jersey Shore-style baby shower (which featured drag queens and booze), while Ciara shared a sweet shot of her newborn son, Future. Rounding out our list, “Dancing with the Stars” finalist Candace Cameron Bure shares a sweet photo of her daughter, Natasha.
Kendra Wilkinson gave birth to her second child, a baby girl, last week and, as promised, she gave her daughter a unisex baby name.
Wilkinson and her husband, Hank Baskett, named their baby girl Alijah Mary Baskett. The couple already have a 4-year-old son named Hank Jr.
During her pregnancy, the former Girls Next Door star said she wanted to give her daughter a unisex name.
“They’re all unisex names, names that could be for boys — that are meant for a boy — but could be for a girl,” she said of the names she was considering for her daughter.
Wilkinson also said they were originally thinking of a different name. “We want to raise a little tomboy but we want her to be our little princess on the other side. Jayden is one of the first names we thought of, and we thought of that a while back,” she revealed.
Although they have yet to share a picture of baby Alijah, we are sure she is just adorable. Wilkinson’s last tweet was on May 15, which is apparently shortly before she gave birth to her daughter.
This is it guys. It’s time. Love you all n tweet to ya again when I can. Xoxoxo.

Baskett tweeted shortly after his daughter’s birth, thanking everyone for their support and confirming that both Wilkinson and the baby were home and healthy.
Thank you to all the congrats & well wishes y’all have sent! Been a busy cpl of days but happy to say both my ladies are home & doing great!

According to the Social Security Administration, the name Alijah is considered a boy’s name and peaked in 2012, where it was ranked at number 454. What do you think of the name?
Pregnant Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWoww” Farley shared this cute photo on Twitter from her baby shower as she and Snooki show off their baby bumps in pretty pastel dresses. JWoww is expecting her first baby, a girl, in July while Snooki is pregnant with her second child.
The reality star shared several photos from her baby shower that, according to In Touch Weekly, featured “drag queens, junk food and tons of booze.” The bash was held in Seaside Heights and her Jersey Shore BFF’s, including Deena Cortese and Sammi Giancola, all came out to celebrate their friend.
“Thank you so much to everyone who came to the baby shower!” JWoww wrote on her blog. “I am so overwhelmed with gifts I don’t even know where to begin lol! It meant the world to me! Love you all,” she wrote.
Ciara welcomed her first child a boy, on May 19 and shared this cute photo on Instagram of her son’s tiny, newborn hand. She tweeted the announcement and shared his baby name and weight.
This is the first child for the singer and her fiancé, who is also named Future.
She had hinted at the name during her pregnancy, telling Us Weekly, “It was kind of easy,” she said of picking the first name. “But the middle name was a little hard for me… I went with what felt right in my soul and my gut. I didn’t second guess it.”
The 28-year-old singer later tweeted her excitement over motherhood, writing:
Candace Cameron Bure
Even though Candace Cameron Bure didn’t pick up the mirror ball trophy, she and her dancing partner Mark Ballas did have an amazing time and came in a respectable third place on the hit show Dancing with the Stars. The former Full House star, who has three children (two sons named Maksim and Lev and a daughter named Natasha), shared this picture on twitter of she and Ballas after the finale.
She later shared this sweet picture of her daughter, Natasha, kissing her on the cheek.
“The support of my family, especially my daughter’s cheerleading me on was amazing and worth it all!!” she captioned the photo.
