Jessica Alba is pregnant with her second child! The star left a message on her Facebook page letting fans know that her daughter Honor will soon a big sister to another very lucky little girl or boy, ensuring that she got to break the big news before any other media outlets.
And it’s nice of Jessica Alba to break the celebrity pregnancy dry spell. After a slew of celebrities announced that they were pregnant in January, the celebrity baby boom slowed down a bit. Jessica Alba joins other 2011 celebrity mommies-to-be Jane Krakowski, Kate Hudson, Alicia Silverstone, Natalie Portman, Selma Blair, Marion Cotillard, Pink, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Connelly, Ivanka Trump, and Victoria Beckham, most of whom revealed that they were pregnant just last month. So will Jessica Alba jump-start the celebrity pregnancy boom for February with her late Valentine’s Day gift announcement? With half of Hollywood knocked up, it’s going to be hard to add many more celebrities to the ever-growing list, but a baby bump does seem to be the hottest Hollywood accessory right now.
And the baby bump also morphs into another fun celebrity fashion accessory: a cute baby with a unique name. So in “Honor” of Jessica Alba’s pregnancy, what are some wholesome, honorable names for baby number 2?
Well, she and hubby Cash could take a page from their wedding vows and name baby number 2 “Obey” (they’ve already got the love and Honor). Virtue also goes well with Honor, or they could stick to other virtues (like Honor) used for baby names: Hope, Charity, Chastity, Prudence, Faith, and Mercy (coming up with a name like this that works for a baby boy is a bit of a challenge, however).
But Jessica Alba might not want to go for something so ordinary. After all, she’s got quite a bit of baby name competition this year; Natalie Portman will probably come up with a hip name for her baby, and Pink’s will definitely pack a punch and possess a touch of coolness. Ivanka Trump’s baby name will probably be elegant and sophisticated, while Mariah Carey’s twins will likely have very musical names. Victoria Beckham will think of something posh for her next, and Marion Cotillard’s baby will have a lovely French name. And Jewel will think of something poetic, while I can see Jane Krakowski coming up with something quirky.
So with all these celebrity minds trying to wow their fans with their baby names, will Jessica Alba be able to compete? Stay tuned to find out as Baby Bonanza 2011 continues!
