Katie Lowes & Adam Shapiro Welcome First Child: Albee

Congratulations are in order for Katie Lowes and Adam Shapiro.

The Scandal star, 36, and the Sense8 actor welcomed their first child — son Albee Shapiro — she announced via Twitter Thursday.

“Baby’s first #Scandal live tweet! Adam and I are thrilled to welcome Albee Shapiro into our family! We’re happy & healthy!” the new mom captioned the first photo of her baby boy.

Last month, the actress opened up about her birth plan.

“I don’t have a birth plan yet, but we’ll be in a hospital,” Lowes shared. “I wanted a doula because it’s my first baby and I want to be able to call her when I’m going into labor so she can come over and help us go through the early stage. My husband and I are both actors; we’re obviously dramatic. So we want someone who is able to say, ‘This is normal. You’re okay; let’s do another lap around the house. Let’s bounce on a ball, let’s walk down the street.’ That way I won’t rush to the hospital too soon. Then, when I’m officially freaked out, we’ll head to the hospital. But she’ll be there as our advocate and as someone who has gone through this many more times than we have.”

In July, Lowes celebrated her baby shower at Au Fudge in Los Angeles, Calif.

In May, the actress announced her first pregnancy.

Congratulations to the Lowes-Shapiro family!

Jason Biggs & Jenny Mollen Welcome Baby No. 2: Lazlo

Congratulations are in order for Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen.

The American Pie star, 39, and the Life Happens actress, 38, welcomed their second child — son Lazlo Biggs — on Monday (October 2) at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, E! News reports.

The newborn weighed in at 7 lbs., 1 oz., and measured 20 inches long.

“Mom, dad and big brother Sid are doing great!” the actress’ rep said.

The couple also announced the news via Instagram story.

“Hello everybody. I’m just sitting in the back of the car with Jason and my second child,” said the new mom-of-two.

She then said to her husband, “Baby, you have two boys now.” Biggs replied, “I know, WTF.”

She added: “I had to break out of the hospital, they wanted to keep me, but I’m leaving — I’m leaving with wires attached.” Biggs replies jokingly, “Was I supposed to sign [discharge] papers or pay or anything?”

“I’m gonna go home and eat my placenta,” said Mollen, with Biggs adding, “I’m excited to try it.”

The newborn joins 3½-year-old big brother Sid.

In September, the actress-author revealed her struggle with prenatal depression.

“I could already be in a depression,” she revealed. “I’m planning on eating my placenta, but I’m also anticipating a major emotional dive. I think that it’s chemical. I think people don’t talk about it enough.”

She added: “Because having a baby is the scariest f—ing thing that could happen to a woman.”

Mollen — who had placenta previa — said after giving birth to her son Sid she told “everybody that it felt like I was coming off of cocaine.”

“It was just like the craziest come down of my life,” she shared. “Maybe because I know what to expect this time, it’s almost happening sooner, like I’m already going through the motions of [this] insane life changing experience.”

She encouraged fans to be “hyper-vigilant” about their emotions after giving birth.

“You’ll be shocked at how fast you’ll wake up one day and be in the darkest place,” she said. “The only way your kid is going to be healthy and happy is if you are healthy and happy. So, make that the priority.”

In April, Mollen and the Orange Is the New Black star announced their second pregnancy.

Congratulations to the Mollen-Biggs family!

Tori Spelling: “3 Boys, 3 Girls Would Be Ideal”

Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Tori Spelling was all smiles with husband Dean McDermott and four of their children — sons Liam, 10, and Finn, 5, and daughters Stella, 9, and Hattie, 5 — at the L.O.L. Surprise Party! event in Hollywood, Calif., on Friday (September 29).

At the event, the actress, 44, talked about adding to their big brood. “I do like even numbers and I was always a big fan of The Brady Bunch. So three boys, three girls would be ideal,” she told Us Weekly. “But we’re blessed and you know, who knows?”

As it turns out, the couple — who are also parents to 6-month-old son Beau — didn’t plan any of their children.

“We’re both believers, none of our kids are actually planned,” Spelling shared. “So we’re believers that they choose us and when the time is right, it’s right. If not, we’re definitely blessed.”

The True Tori star talked about balancing her busy life and career.

“People say, ‘How do you do it with 5?’ I’m like, ‘You don’t think about it. You just do it.’ There’s no thinking, so I just try to make sure my kids are my first priority and work is always second, so I feel like if you always keep that in your mind and go with your heart with your family in mind, it all works out,” she shared. “They know I do a lot of work from my phone. Nowadays they’re like, ‘Mom, why are you on your phone? Are you texting?’ And I’m like, ‘No, influencers work from there phone. I’m doing social media work.’ I’m like, ‘It’s part of the job, you know?’ But as long as I can take my phone somewhere. Obviously when I’m acting, I’m on a set, when I’m doing the other parts of my work and the other part of my life, social media is great because you can go anywhere with it.”

Not to mention, Dean is a “total hands-on dad.”

“He does a lot of acting in Canada and in a lot of movies and stuff, so we definitely try to balance so that one of us is at home when the other one isn’t,” she said. “We’re a team and we work off of each other and we work a lot together. So when we can work with the family like on reality and stuff, that’s always the best because then we’re together.”

She added: “Honestly, we like bedtime, not like bedtime, but time in bed. I heard there’s amazing mattresses that are nine-feet wide. I need that because I have a huge family. Our favorite thing is to put towels on the bed. We bring up what we call a ‘bed picnic’ and we put on a movie and all cuddle in bed.”

Mindy Kaling: Baby Bump Watch

Mom-to-be Mindy Kaling posted an updated photo of her baby bump via Instagram.

“Look at me! In front of the @marlboroughlife crest having just done a Q&A for their student body. I have never met so many impressive, smart, thoughtful young people. Go Marlborough!” she captioned the image donning a checkered midi maternity dress.

In a recent interview, Kaling confessed her pre-motherhood jitters.

“I’m really happy that that’s what I project but right now I just feel so anxious,” she said when asked if she’ll be a fun mom.

She added: “But I’d like to be the fun mom. I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom. So it could be kind of fun, too. I think that would be nice.”

The Mindy Project star, 38, reflected on her late mother, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2012.

“My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did,” Kaling shared.

“My career choice was not something that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy,” she continued.

And she’s happy to openly criticize other parents now.

“It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent, so one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child,” she laughed.

In July, The Office alum debuted her baby bump. The actress is remaining mum on the identity of the baby’s father.

It’ll be a girl for the single mom-to-be.
