New Celebrity Babies – The Hollywood Update
The Hollywood families just keep getting bigger. There’s a still a lot of time left for 2008 to close and yet another Hollywood family has welcomed a new arrival. This time it’s Ugly Betty Star Eric Mabius who became a dad for the second time after his wife Ivy Sherman gave birth to a baby boy.
According to reports online, his spokesperson revealed that Sherman gave birth on Monday. The baby was named Rylan Jaxon Mabius. He is the couple’s second son. Their first son, two year old Maxfield Elliot was born in June of 2006. Mabius and Sherman, who went to the same high school, were married in New Orleans in February 2006.
Mabius has been a member of the Ugly Betty cast since the show began in 2006. He plays the character Daniel Meade. The show centers on a fashion magazine, and the titular character Betty Suarez. The hit show is based on the Colombian telenovela Yo Soy Betty La Fea. Ugly Betty has proven a ratings hit for ABC since its premiere. The show has won a number of awards including two golden globes.
Reality show judge Nigel Barker also became a second time dad after his wife Cristen gave birth to a baby girl. Barker’s first child, Jack is two years old. The baby was named Jasmine and weighed 7 pounds and 11 ounces. Barker is a judge on the show America’s Next Top Model. When asked if his associate Tyra Banks might end up being the Godmother his response was, “I think she will be.”
Well it seems like these two might be bucking the unusual naming trend sweeping celebrity circles these days. In fact, Mabius admitted that he and his wife were planning “to go with something French like Etinne.” Possibly seeing teasing down the road, he added, “the kid will have to start taking karate in like second grade.”
Good luck to both couples and congratulations on the new additions to your families.
