Jessica Simpson reportedly wants to give birth by caesarean section because she is terrified of pain.
The 31-year-old 'Fashion Star' mentor is due to welcome her first child with fiancé Eric Johnson any day now, and has apparently decided last minute she is too scared to push.
The singer-turned-fashion mogul had planned to have a live-in nurse at her Beverly Hills mansion and a luxury birthing suite reserved at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, but after trying and failing to conquer her fears, she is said to have changed her mind about the method of her daughter's delivery.
A source told In Touch Weekly: ''The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her. She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night.
''Jessica has no tolerance for pain. She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.
''She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her.''
Meanwhile, father-to-be Eric will be on hand to support her through the process.
The source added: ''Eric is a calming force for Jessica. Eric is so excited about the birth.''
Jessica Simpson waited in a Range Rover today (April 18th) while mom Tina Simpson headed into a Los Angeles Chili’s to pick up take-out. Reports are buzzing about a rumor that Simpson might have already had her baby girl, and is just keeping a low profile…just cause. There are also reports that Simpson is opting for a C-section because she’s terrified of the pain that comes with childbirth.
”The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her,” a source allegedly told In Touch. ”She was so anxious, she was even breaking into cold sweats at night. Jessica has no tolerance for pain. She even turned to hypnotherapy to calm her fears about it, but nothing was working.
“She desperately wanted to experience the joy of a natural birth, but decided to go with what made the most sense for her.”
From these photos, we can’t tell if Simpson has birthed the babe.
Ashlee, 27, and her curly-haired cutie were all smiles after their cross-country flight. In the series of photos of the twosome, they were dressed in color-coordinated outfits — mostly darker hues of black and gray — and Bronx, whose dad is Ashlee's ex-husband Pete Wentz, clutched a Lego toy. Later, he rested his head on her shoulder for a nap.
In February during New York Fashion Week, Ashlee and Piazza, who have been dating since last year, gave their first joint interview. He said that there's nothing better than when she visits him in the Big Apple. "I love when we get to spend time in New York together," he told reporters. "It's where I'm from so we always have a good time." Their idea of a perfect night? They like to "hang at home and cook," she said. He called her "my sous chef" and said their favorite meals to make are "fish or pasta or something, steaks." She gushed: "He's amazing."
Last night, singer Mýa performed at LAX Nightclub at the Luxor. The songstress arrived around 1 a.m. and made her way to her VIP booth as guests shouted after her. As she got settled, she took the time to meet admiring fans while posing for pictures.
Mýa then headed over to the deejay booth alongside resident DJ Gusto and signed copies of her latest single as she prepared to give an amazing performance.( Collapse )
With so many “it” girls and boys coming in and out of the scene, it takes a whole lot of talent, discipline and good people surrounding you to be more than just a flash in the pan. Growing up is difficult enough, so throwing in a few million pairs of eyes watching you do it sounds like a recipe for disaster.
Sorry guys, I thought my cut worked.
Warner Bros’ romantic drama from Nicholas Sparks, The Lucky One starring Zac Efron, is looking like $9.0M today to overperform for $25M weekend playing in 3,115 theaters. It received a ‘B+’ CinemaScore from audiences.
I'm especially happy for the actresses (Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, and Meagan Good) who are undervalued by Hollywood.
No, it's NOT a Tyler Perry film.
Success on the screen offers no guarantee of brilliance on the boards. Some actors can command both media. Others struggle to make the leap from one to the other. Cate Blanchett unquestionably belongs in the first category. Anyone who can play both Elizabeth I and Bob Dylan in the movies can obviously do versatile. But the range of Blanchett's performance in Big and Small, her first appearance on the London stage for 12 years, is still breathtaking. She is on the stage almost throughout the two and a half hours of Botho Strauss's play, as her generous-hearted but ineffectual character Lotte struggles repeatedly to connect with the people around her. Lotte passes through an indifferent world almost unnoticed. But Blanchett's stage presence in the role is compelling, as she deploys every register, gesture and movement to give the kind of once-in-a-generation stage masterclass that conjures up memories of Vanessa Redgrave in her prime.
With the major exception of The Good Wife (CBS), there's really not much that piques my interest on network television these days. Indeed, it increasingly seems as if everything and everyone with any originality or daring has migrated to cable. But, that being said, there is one new network show that, I must confess, has me a little excited: Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, which debuts tonight at 9:30, right after Modern Family. yea, sorry, this is a little old, lol Why? In part because of the unusual title; in part because it has been endlessly promoted on ABC, its affiliated channels (ESPN, etc.), and in movie theater promos; and in part because it is attempting the tongue-in-cheek feat of having James Van Der Beek, the forgotten Dawson's Creek (WB) alum (as in not Katie Holmes, Michelle Williams, or Joshua Jackson), portray -- you guessed it -- James Van Der Beek.
But the show's biggest draw for me, far and away, is the fact that it stars Krysten Ritter, the 30-year-old actress who I first noticed during season two ofBreaking Bad (AMC),
Playing the part of the arrogant knight in the critically acclaimed HBO production, Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau believes he was the first to recognise the similarity.
