Mommy tweets: Kourtney Kardashian's baby, Jessica Simpson's weight, Usher's tragedy
What were on the minds and Twitter feeds of celebrity moms this past week? Kourtney Kardashian had a baby girl named Penelope Scotland, much to the delight of her sisters Kim and Khloe. Jessica Simpson tweets about her baby weight gain, while celebrity moms tweet support to Usher after the jet ski tragedy that left his stepson brain dead. Alyssa Milano and Giuliana Rancic round out our list of top celebrity tweets of the week.
Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to her daughter on July 8, but it is quite interesting to note that she has yet to tweet about it! In fact, on the day she gave birth, she wrote some promotional tweets, telling her followers to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians! Perhaps it was prior to giving birth?
She recently posted one tweet in which she said, “Mommy blog!” with a link to a video of her discussing what to pack to take to the hospital for childbirth... but she still didn’t mention her daughter.
Luckily, her sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian are spilling some of the dirt.
“Penelope Scotland Disick born on Sunday, July 8,” wrote Kim, with a link to a short paragraph announcing the news.
“Welcome to the world, Penelope Scotland Disick!" wrote Kim. "Kourtney gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter on Sunday and the whole family is so thrilled to finally meet her! She is absolutely perfect! I am so excited to be an aunt again and can’t wait to spoil little Penelope. I know Mason is going to be the best big brother in the whole world. Congratulations Kourtney and Scott."
Khloe echoed Kim’s thoughts, writing: “Welcome to the world Penelope Scotland Disick!!!” She included a link to a paragraph saying, “she is absolutely perfect!”
After signing a reported $4 million deal with Weight Watchers to lose a rumored 50 pounds of baby weight in just five months, some media outlets are saying that Jessica Simpson is feeling stressed to meet this goal — and understandably so, especially under the ever-constant eye of the media.
Simpson recently took to Twitter to clear up the rumors: “Just so everyone knows... Weight Watchers hasn't put ANY pressure on me! I'm trying to be as healthy as I can be for myself and I feel great!”
It sounds like Simpson has her priorities in order and is enjoying her daughter Maxwell and staying focused on being healthy. Good for you, Jess!
Jada Pinkett Smith
Celebrity moms, including Jada Pinkett Smith, tweeted their support after Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, Kyle Glover, was said to be brain dead after a jet skiing accident. Kyle is the son of Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster.
“Our prayers are yours Usher, Tameka & to all those who have put love into your son. Our prayers are with you as well. Be strong,” Jada tweeted.
Usher, who is pictured here with his two sons Naviyd and Usher Raymond V, and Foster were in the middle of a nasty divorce and custody battle over their two sons together when the tragedy occurred with Foster’s son. Usher has been supporting Foster through this time and reportedly wants to settle the custody dispute.
“Penn State leaders showed 'total disregard' for welfare of abuse victims,” tweeted former Charmed star Alyssa Milano with a link to a CNN article on the Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky mess.
“Why is @Alyssa_Milano tweeting about ?#psu?,” tweeted one of her followers, with the hashtag “why do you know better” and “Fu** Charmed.”
Her response? “As a mom of a baby boy, I think the negligence of ?#PSU? is disgusting and an absolute sin. And I can tweet about whatever I want,” Milano wrote back, in a tweet she has since deleted.
Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill Rancic are expecting their first child via gestational surrogate at the end of August or early September, but despite reports saying the contrary, she tweeted that she will not be missing the birth of her son. Us Weekly had reported that since she will be working the Olympics in London until August 11, she will miss her baby boy being born.
“Headline that i may miss our baby's birth is making me laugh! I come home from London Aug 10, how is that first week of September? “ she tweeted.
“Hey @usweekly. What's up with the made up headline "I may miss my son's birth???" When did I give that quote??? ?#whatajoke? ?#false” Rancic later tweeted.
