Earlier this week on OWN’s the Gayle King Show, golden-voiced legend James Earl Jones (of Star Wars and CNN) recited the lyrics of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”.
It didn’t take long for Lucas-heads to developed a video to go with it.
This soon-to-be Bieber classic was given such raw emotion by Jones, that it immediately brings to mind other recent renditions of modern classics. Remember when Josh Groban sung Kanye West’s tweets in his flawless tenor? Or how about Christopher Walken bedazzled the world with his reading of Lady Gaga’s beloved “Poker Face”?
Shatner… the ball is in your court now.
Well, Rod’s going to have to stretch that heart open a little more, because the Toronto Star is reporting Stewart and his current wife Penny Lancaster have welcomed a new baby boy into their home. Their very crowded home. The baby’s name is Aiden and he has seven older brothers and sisters.
Sorry Rod, I don’t mean to hate, but holy crap. Are you really interested in raising a son at age 66? Based on simple average American life expectancy, Aiden will be at his dad’s funeral before he’s 14. Not cool, dude.
Hugh Hefner had a vasectomy, why can’t you too Rod? WHYYYYYYYYY
Former “Married With Children” star Christina Applegate is on the cover of PEOPLE this week with her new baby Sadie.
“I felt my heart literally open up for the first time and like wrap itself around her. It was profound,” Applegate, 39, said, adding she’s “more in love with her every minute of the day.”
We can’t forget that Christina had a rough few years with breast cancer, eventually beating it.
And now she has Sadie.
“Yeah, now I’m Mom,” Applegate told the magazine. “She’s healed me in so many ways. She’s just made my life so much better. She’s opened my whole soul.”
She has come a long way from Kelly Bundy, but she still looks hot. Christina, welcome to MILF hood.
Victoria Beckham is denying reports that she knows the sex of her forthcoming child.
The former Spice Girl has openly announced that she has no idea whether her next child with David Beckham will be a boy or a girl, but she seems excited either way.
When asked what the Beckham children thought of her pregnancy, Victoria said “They’re excited about having a little brother to teach how to play soccer. But, if it’s a girl, we’d be over the moon as well.”
Beckham added that they may decide to leave the baby’s gender as a surprise for labor.
A boy would be delightful, but we’d love to see a little baby Posh Spice running around!
In an interview with Elle, Katy Perry says she wants to have babies, even if it puts her career on hold.
“I think some people will die on the stage, and I’m not so sure I want to do that. Like, I want to have kids,” Perry says in the March issue of the magazine. “I’m totally fine with saying that. I think some people are scared because they’re worried it’s going to ruin their career, but I want to live a full life.”
Katy also discusses how having kids is a much more stable lifestyle than when her career was starting.
“I had two cars repossessed, and I was writing bad checks, but I gave myself a timeline. I thought, ‘Okay, if I don’t make it by 25, I’m just going to get married and pop out some babies and do some crafts,’” Perry, now 26, admits.
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Mike Tyson just welcomed his eighth kid to the world. The baby was born to Mike’s current wife, Lahika Spicer Tyson, 32. This is their second child together, reports RadarOnline.
A source close to the couple says, “Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great.”
In an interview on ‘The View,’ the boxer admitted, “I’m totally destitute and broke. Yeah,I have no money.” When co-host Joy Behar asked how that was possible, given his success and endorsements, he replied, “Um, I had a lot of fun.”
And let’s not forget his fledgling acting career. Who can forget his fine performance playing himself in The Hangover? Anyways, good job Mike having another kid you obviously can’t afford. Well played!
“For us it’s been uplifting,” Travolta, 56, told Hello! about having a baby. “Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms. He’s given the house a renewed spirit and purpose.”
Travolta and Preston have been trying to have another baby for three years. They made the announcement about Preston’s pregnancy through John’s website.
“It’s impossible to keep a secret … especially one as wonderful as this,” they wrote. “We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family. Love, John, Kelly and Ella.”
Jewel posted on her blog Tuesday that she is expecting a baby with her husband Ty Murray.
“We’re so excited to be expecting our first baby,” Murray told PEOPLE. “We always knew we wanted to have a child, and this time in our lives feels right.”
Jewel is currently in her second trimester, and the couple waited until now to break the news.
“I took a pregnancy test, and it was positive!” said the singer. “It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I’d start throwing up on set, and everyone would be like, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant.’”
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and her soccer star hubby David had some happy news to announce this weekend. They’re pregnant! Again!
“David and Victoria Beckham are delighted to confirm they are expecting their fourth child in the summer,” the couple’s rep announced. “Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz are very excited about the arrival of their new brother or sister.”
And what flawless timing! The baby announcement must be a happy break for David, who’s been receiving lots of negative press regarding his alleged extramarital activity. Beckham has been accused of sleeping with a prostitute, who was quickly sued by Beckham’s crack legal team, and with a married woman, whose millionaire husband cited the affair in their divorce proceedings.
We sure hope all’s well in Beckhamland and that this new baby isn’t a last-ditch effort to save the high-profile couple’s marriage.
It looks like the Biebs has been caught red-handed with his rumored girlfriend, the actress and Disney darling Selena Gomez.
Perez Hilton is reporting that one lucky paparazzo managed to snap some shots of the two canoodling on what appears to be a giant yacht in the middle of nowhere. Judging from the pix, this awkward teenage relationship is most definitely in full bloom.
Cheer up, young Beliebers! We don’t see this relationship lasting very long at all.
Radar Online is reporting that 40 year old songstress Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon may be expecting twins.
Mariah confirmed rumors of pregnancy after weeks of speculation, but wouldn’t say any more than that. That is, until she accidentally used a plural pronoun when referring to her growing baby bump on Radio Disney.
Carey told DJ Ernie D that she frequently sings Christmas music from her new album to her bump. The Precious star added enthusiastically “I just hope they don’t come out hating Christmas!”
I guess we’ll find out in the spring when Mariah’s due!
Listen to the interview below:

The Us source says, “Pink was determined to make the relationship solid. Now she’s really happy, and she’s excited she got pregnant so fast! She’ll be a brilliant mother.”
…Benjamin, according to the Huffington post.
Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, are expecting the baby boy to arrive in about three weeks.
The ecstatic daddy explained their choice to divulge the chosen name early, stating “We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.”
Baby Benjamin will join sister Ella Bleu, 10. Travolta and Preston tragically and suddenly lost their then-16 year-old son Jett last year.
We wish the couple all the best with their new baby.

Stella Zavala Damon was delivered in New York this past Wednesday to Damon and his wife Luciana. “Mom and baby are both healthy,” Damon’s rep said. “The whole family is thrilled.”

Looks like the Damon household is going to stay a girls club! Congratulations!
TMZ is reporting that Mel Gibson’s latest baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, is unhappy with the quality of her legal counsel. Oksana is holding several legal meetings in Beverly Hills this week, including one this morning with Neal Hersh of Hersh, Mannis & Bogen.
Oksana’s current firm is battling the courts to get her $40,000 a month in child support from the Braveheart star, a huge boost from her current $5k monthly settlement.
Keep in mind that those numbers are for one baby. That’s barely comparable to the $2,500 cheque she’s receiving monthly for Alexander, her preteened son from a previous marriage. Little Lucia sure is high maintenance!
Neal Hersh may be a good choice for Oksana. Some of his past clients include Pamela Anderson and Denise Richards, both of whom are socially aware ladies with endless amounts of class and grace. Right?
…Okay, well, at least they’ve got money in the bank.
Granted, Oksana is a little nutso, but Mel Gibson isn’t exactly the nicest guy in the world. So if we have to pick the lesser of two evils, we’re pulling for team Grigorieva. After all, how bad can you be when you write delightful ballads for Josh Groban?
Hopefully this settlement gets resolved soon for the Lucia’s sake!
Popeater reports that Mario Lopez and girlfriend, dancer Courtney Laine Mazza, welcomed their latest prop — er, baby daughter, into the world yesterday. Gia Francesca Lopez was born in California weighing 6 lbs, 4 oz. The family is doing very well.
When reached for comment, the former “Saved by the Bell” star sounded like a very proud papa. “We are so overjoyed,” Lopez gushed. “What an amazing, wonderful and overwhelming experience to welcome our daughter into the world.”
Aside from the pending reality show, Lopez has also contemplated writing a book about the quandaries and qualms of first-time dads. “Guys want to help, too,” Lopez stated. “There are tons of books for moms, but dads want to know what’s going on with the lady and the baby, both emotionally and physically.”
Sounds like baby Gia is already a great source of creativity and inspiration for Mario! It’s so inspiring to see a former A-lister driven to help fellow young dads. We’re sure he’s in it for the sense of community and charity he’s sure to feel whenever someone drops $29.99 on his new daddy manual. Celebrity altruism at its finest!
All kidding aside, we wish all the best to the Lopez family. Babies are always happy news! Just don’t call the show “Saved by the Baby,” okay?
“Jodie was amazing and is doing great,” Coyle tells PEOPLE. “We are now the proud, excited parents of Miss Beatrix Carlin Sweetin Coyle.”
Beatrix made her debut at 7 lbs., 4 oz. and 19 inches long.
“We’re already madly in love with Beatrix and are so grateful for the support from our family and friends. And we can’t wait for her big sister Zoie to meet her,” the couple tell PEOPLE.
Looks like Jodie is going to have a “Full House” of her own (this is where a laugh track would be inserted).
PEOPLE reports that John Travolta and Kelly Preston are expecting a baby boy. The couple announced Kelly was pregnant in May.
On August 8 the couple announced the news at a baby shower near their L.A. home. Approximately 40 people were at the shower which included close friends and family.
The couple lost their 16 year old son Jett in January 2009 due to a seizure. Says a family friend: “This baby is such a healing baby.” He will join big sister Ella Bleu, 10.
“It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy,” the Team Portugal player writes on his Facebook page.
Ronaldo further explains that he will be the sole guardian of the child, and that the mother’s name will remain confidential.
“As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential,” he writes, “my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.”
According to People, 35,623 of his Facebook fans “liked” this announcement.
Somewhere between writing, performing, and producing hit music, Ne-Yo found time to make a baby, reports E! Online. This will be the first baby for the Grammy award winning rapper and singer, and he and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw are pumped.
“I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I’m very, very, very excited about that,” Ne-Yo told Ebony. “It’s a New Year’s baby and I’m just in a really good place right now.”
There isn’t any indication of the baby’s gender yet, attributed to what Ne-Yo calls the “stubborn” positioning of it inside the mommy.
It’s likely, though, that when it pops out, it’ll reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100 quickly!
