It’s a baby boy for Owen Wilson and Jade Duell! They came close to having the first of many big celebrity births to take place in 2011, but they got beat by another pretty pair. So who was it, and what other big celebrity births will we see in 2011?
Owen Wilson only announced days ago that girlfriend Jade Duell was pregnant with their first child, and now she’s already given birth to a beautiful baby boy, born in the beautiful state of Hawaii. Owen Wilson has managed to keep the pregnancy and his relationship with Jade Duell a secret for a long time (he was apparently dating Jade Duell for a year before breaking the news of their pregnancy), but now you can bet their baby is going to be a big paparazzi target as he grows up (everyone will want to see if he inherited daddy’s nose, after all).
There’s no word yet on what Owen Wilson and Jade Duell are going to name their first child, but hopefully they have better luck than the first big celebrity couple to give birth in 2011. Model Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom also welcomed a baby boy earlier this year, but they still haven’t come up with a name yet (I really do like Jack Sparrow. Or what about Legolas? Orlando Bloom is also going to be starring in “The Three Musketeers” this year, and I’ve always loved the name Aramis from that story).
But these aren’t the only celebrity couples that will have to try to come up with creative baby names in 2011. So far a whopping number of celebrity couples have announced pregnancies, so there’s going to be quite the baby boom in Hollywood throughout 2011. Jane Krakowski of “30 Rock” fame was one of the first celebrities of 2011 to announce her pregnancy, and she’s been followed by a slew of fellow blondes announcing their celebrity births set to take place in 2011. Singer Jewel is expecting her first with hubby Ty Murray; Kate Hudson is expecting her second child with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy; and Alicia Silverstone is expecting her first with husband Christopher Jarecki.
Other big celebrity births set for 2011 include plenty of brunettes, too, with Natalie Portman, Selma Blair, Marion Cotillard, and Victoria Beckham all expecting. And Pink, of course, is the only mother-to-be with pink hair.
So what other celebrities will announce pregnancies in time to be part of the bonanza of births in 2011? Pregnancy announcements have almost been a daily occurrence, so stay tuned to find out!
