Celebritease: Baby names and hurricanes

It is cheekily noted that major weather events are linked to baby booms nine months later, so it is only fitting that babies have been all over Hollywood this week as Hurricane Joaquin passed through.

Macklemore showed that he has the “same love” for fatherhood as he does for rapping on Instagram. The rapper posted a photo with his four-month old daughter, Sloane, bundled up in bed next to him with the caption, “There is nothing better.” Kim Kardashian West made baby headlines appearing on “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” The reality star sat down to talk baby names for North’s soon-to-be brother. Kardashian West admitted that she is a fan of the name Easton, but husband Kanye West is not so much. One direction the couple won’t be heading is South, as it makes Kardashian West roll her eyes when it is suggested. The couple believes they won’t be using the compass for inspiration this time around.

Also in the names category is the adorable way Kevin Jonas’ daughter, Alena, refers to her Uncle Nick. The 19-month-old baby can’t say Nick yet so he is called, “Uncle Geek,” the “Chains” singer revealed. Although career demands keep him away from the youngster, he said he loves to spoil his niece every time he gets to see her. *Swoon.*

It was announced via Twitter on Friday, Oct. 2, that Renée Zellweger had started production on her latest film, “Bridget Jones’s Baby.” Patrick Dempsey will be joining the cast and Colin Firth is returning as Mr. Darcy, giving my love life unobtainable goals. 

Taylor Swift took to Twitter to let everyone know that, although she has found her own Mr. Darcy, they are in fact taking things slow. Rumor was that Swift purchased a Beverly Hills mansion around the corner from her disc jockey boyfriend, Calvin Harris. To clear things up, Swift tweeted, “What the press says I’m doing: Buying a Bev Hills mansion, getting married in an English castle. What I’m doing: Playing a show in St. Louis.”

While Swift enjoyed her time on stage, “Saturday Night Live,” with host Miley Cyrus, poked fun at the songstress and her ever growing girl squad in the show’s return from hiatus on Saturday, Sept. 3. In a spoof movie preview called, “The Squad,” the audience got a sneak peek of what a post-apocalyptic world would look like if the entire world joined her squad. It seems that you can try to run and hide, but in the end you can’t resist the temptation to join Swift and tan on American flag towels or walk on stage with models. Seriously, Swift, if you need another addition, a celebrity gossip columnist might be someone good to have in your corner.

Stripping down against the haters, Demi Lovato posed nude and makeup-free for her Vanity Fair photoshoot. The star revealed that in the midst of her upcoming album, “Confident,” her grandfather’s recent passing inspired her to live in the moment. She wants to inspire the world to have more body confidence by rebelling against societal norms and believes in her own acceptance, the world can mirror that sentiment. I’ll be using that as my excuse for all the food I bought in preparation for Hurricane Joaquin and now have to eat since it never hit.
