Oh, Baby!

29 Sep 2010

What’s in store for the new batch of yet-to-be-born celebuspawns? Ahlan! reveals the ins and outs of some charmed little lives...

Penelope CruzJavier Bardem
The relationship: Together since 2007, the loved-up Spaniards wed in July this year, with Pen announcing her pregnancy a few weeks ago.

On the baby: “It is true, I am very happy, don’t make me say anything else” – Javier.

The name: Certainly a Spanish name, with perhaps a nod to Pen’s mentor and muse, film director Pedro Almodovar.

Fairy godparents: Pen’s best pal, the luxury-loving Salma Hayek will be on hand to give great pressies from one of her hubby’s companies, which includes Fendi and Louis Vuitton.

Little lifestyle: With Oscar winners as parents, Baby Bardem will grow up on movie sets and surrounded by stars. And with Valentina Pinault as a bestie.

Lucky baby: …if it gets Pen’s famous pout and looks.

Sophie DahlJamie Cullum
The relationship: The odd couple married in January this year, with pianist Jamie recalling of their first meeting, “Someone like me never entertains the idea of going after someone like her.

I couldn’t assume she would be interested in me.”

On the baby: “Jamie Cullum and Sophie Dahl are delighted
to confirm that Sophie is four months pregnant”
– Their rep.

The name: Roald for a boy, after Soph’s legendary granddad, or something cute and classic for a girl – Molly, Lily, that sort of thing.

Fairy godparents: Not many celeb pals here, as Sophie burnt a lot of bridges when she hooked up with Mick Jagger – much to his more popular daughter Jade’s fury.

Little lifestyle: Sophie loves to cook up tasty treats, so she’ll create a homely, family vibe, with the trendy pair jetting around Europe with Jamie on tour.

Lucky baby: … if it inherits dad’s musical chops and Soph’s famous statuesque-ness!

Miranda KerrOrlando Bloom
The relationship: The couple opted for a shotgun wedding in July after three years of dating, when they discovered that Miranda was three months pregnant.

On the baby: “I am a little afraid, but I am embracing it” – Miranda

The name: We’re betting on some pretty out-there, fashion-type name for this super-hip pair – with probably a surname-as-name winning the day – Archer, Harper, Harlow, etc...

Fairy godparents: The popular Victoria Secret’s model boasts Selita Ebanks and Adriana Lima as her besties – something a boy baby will appreciate in 18 years time. And Orly’s still tight with his POTC co-stars Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley.

Little lifestyle: The eco-friendly couple will instill plenty of environmental awareness in their tot, and we can see Miranda giving up the runway to become a stay-at-home mum.

Lucky baby: … if Miranda’s famously adorable dimples are passed on.
