Rapper Lil' Kim welcomed her first daughter on June 9 — and gave her quite the outlandish baby name. She re-tweeted the following message from her friend and chef Sunny Anderson, which made the big baby name announcement:June 9, 2014
That's right, Lil' Kim gave her daughter the queenly name of Royal Reign. The father is reportedly the rapper Mr. Papers; however, she has yet to confirm that. No word on why she choose this unique name; however, according to the Social Security Administration, which tracks the popularity of baby names, Royal topped the top 1,000 for boy names for the first time ever last year coming in at number 899.

What do you think of the name Royal Reign?
A man named Richard Dunn was stuck in the Las Vegas airport all night — and, instead of heading back to the Vegas Strip to gamble, he decided to shoot a music video using his iPhone to Celine Dion's song, "All By Myself." If you haven't seen the video, it is impressive he was able to film this by himself. Dion took to Twitter to address the video and she even posted her own video to Dunn.June 12, 2014
In the video, Dion tells Dunn she thought the video was "hilarious and very touching." "Next time you are stuck for hours and hours, please be a guest at my show," she says. Watch the video here:
Kelly Rowland is pregnant! The former Destiny's Child singer tweeted, "I'll be stuntin like my daddy…" with a link to her Instagram page where she posted the above picture of large Jordan sneakers next to tiny ones.
This will be the first child for Rowland and her new husband, manager Tim Witherspoon.
No word how far along she is, however she just posted this photo wearing a white flowing top paired with black pants, which conceals her baby bump.
"Last night's look! Thank You @officialsheiks @ceasarStyled by me Dolce (suit) Tom Ford (shoes) Celine (necklace) Gucci (clutch)," she captioned the photo.
No mommy wars here! Cougar Town star Busy Philipps took to Twitter after some remarks she made came across as criticizing actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Here's the background: Paltrow said during an interview that making a film requires "12 to 14 hours a day" of work and that makes it difficult to also do mommy duties, such as take the kids to school and make their lunch. "So I have found it easier on my family life to make a film the exception, and my nine-to-five job the rule," Paltrow wrote on her Goop website.
Of course, some took that to mean she was saying that being a working actress was harder than normal nine-to-five jobs that most non-Hollywood moms have.
Enter Busy Philipps, who got in on the working mom debate when being interviewed by Huff Post Live. "I've said this from the beginning because I genuinely believe this — that in terms of being a working mom I've got it made," she said. "I don't ever feel like I have to stop myself from complaining about how hard it is to be an actress. I mean, it's not that hard."
She never mentioned Paltrow's name; however, some in the media took her comments to be directed at Paltrow. Philipps wrote a series of tweets to clear up the fact that she wants no part in the mommy wars and her comments were not directed towards Paltrow.
JUST TO BE CLEAR- I'm not trying to "smack down" or "set the record straight" about actress moms....— Busy Philipps (@Busyphilipps25) May 30, 2014
My position is every woman has a different life experience&worldview. I hate this pitting moms against moms-it's BS and has to stop.— Busy Philipps (@Busyphilipps25) May 30, 2014
I was asked about MY experience. Not any one else's. THAT is all I know. STOP trying to recreate Mean Girls. I won't be a part of it.— Busy Philipps (@Busyphilipps25) May 30, 2014
Sadly, the internet is all about hits. And salacious headlines get the most. It's trolling and everyone is guilty these days&it bums me out.— Busy Philipps (@Busyphilipps25) May 30, 2014
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm finished with work for the day, I'm putting my phone away and gonna go spend time with my kids.— Busy Philipps (@Busyphilipps25) May 30, 2014
