Julie Pacino, the 21-year old daughter of one of the planet’s most iconic actors, was arrested for DWI early Saturday morning in New York. The incident took place around 1:30 a.m. after Julie drove her Mercedes through a checkpoint on Houston Street in Manhattan. “She had bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech and the strong smell of alcohol on her breath,” officer James Duffy wrote in the police report. “She admitted to drinking three beers and smoking marijuana prior to entering the checkpoint.” Al Pacino flew to NYC from Los Angeles immediately upon hearing this news, as his daughter – a softball standout at UCLA – was was arraigned on Saturday evening and released on her own recognizance.

Fantasia Barrino appeared at a charity event over the weekend for the opening of the Riverview Apartments in Jacksonville, Florida. But the former American Idol champion did a lot more than sing at the event. She announced to a crowd of supporters: I’m pregnant! See/hear for yourself right now: Fantasia to Fans: I’m Pregnant! Fantasia did not reveal the identity of the baby’s father, but we can safely assume he’s Antwaun Cook, the man with whom Barrino has been involved for years. She actually aborted Cook’s child in early 2010, a fact Fantasia was forced to admit when Cook’s wife actually sued the singer for wrecking the couple’s home in North Carolina. Barrino has since been cleared of any wrongdoing and we wish her and her new family nothing but health and happiness.

The Oscar-nominated star, already the mother to a seven-year-old son, had another ” healthy baby boy ” in Los Angeles Saturday night. Kate’s older son, Ryder, is with ex-husband Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes. Kate Hudson no longer looks like this! News of Hudson’s second pregnancy broke in January 2011.

Model-actress Alexis Knapp gave birth to a baby girl on Friday. The presumed father, Ryan Phillippe, was there at her side . Back in March, it was revealed that Knapp, 21, was expecting, and that Phillippe, 36, who dated her briefly last year, was the father of the baby. Ryan has not taken a paternity test, but only because of the risk to the then-pregnant Knapp. He will likely take one now that the child is born. The actor has supported Alexis Knapp financially through the pregnancy regardless. Explains the source of Phillippe’s presence during the birth: “He is a good father, and whether this is his baby or not, he’s been going out of his way to do the right thing and to always be supportive.” Ryan (dad to Deacon, 7, and Ava, 11 with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon) was photographed at a doctor’s appointment with Knapp last month. As for So Undercover actress Knapp, “she has never asked Ryan for any help, nor does she expect it,” her rep said, asking for privacy. A pal added that Knapp is “really excited to be a mom.” Congratulations to Alexis, and probably to Ryan too!
Jessica Alba took time away from shaping up with Jimmy Kimmel this month to speak with Latina magazine. The pretty actress posed with her baby bump and said this pregnancy is far more relaxed than her first. “The first time around, every moment was so new and terrifying, and now I know what to expect… with [daughter] Honor, I was constantly asking myself ‘Is she moving? Is her heart beating?’ I’d worry about everything, and with this baby I don’t have the same anxieties.” Might Alba and husband Cash Warren, married since 2008, expand their brood past these two kids? “I just have to feel it out,” she says. “See how my 30s treat me. I just try to live in the moment.”
Okay, so you can’t see her adorable little face. But Mariah Carey teased fans on Twitter Sunday with a fabulous snapshot of her baby daughter Monroe. “This is baby Monroe saying ‘no pictures dahhhhling’ at 7+1/2 weeks,” Carey wrote beneath a photo of her little girl’s hand, raised as if she were trying to shield her glamorous self from a pack of would-be paparazzi. “Oh dear.” Pretty funny: Perhaps Monroe’s dad, Nick Cannon, wasn’t kidding when he described Monroe and her twin brother Moroccan, born on their anniversary in April. “My son is laid back like me,” he said. “My daughter’s a diva like her mom! When my daughter wants something, she’ll let you know immediately.” Hey, it’s hard to blame the little gal. Sometimes when the celebrity gossip media gets too close, you gotta set up boundaries early.
Laila Ali’s baby daughter is here, and we’ve finally got some pics. Born April 4, baby Sydney joins her big brother CJ, 2½. When Laila and her husband, former NFL star Curtis Conway, decided to have a second child, she thought she wanted another boy, but now she’s glad she was blessed otherwise. “Before I got pregnant with Sydney I started paying attention to girls with their moms and I thought, ‘Oh, I want a girl.’ They are like a little mini me.” The mother and daughter have already established a girls-only ritual. “Because I get up so much with her, we are sleeping in a separate room. My favorite time is the evening when CJ goes to sleep and I have her in the room and it’s quiet. We have our quiet moment together.” And Laila can’t wait to teacher her daughter: “How to cook and how to be a lady” and “how to be strong but still be feminine and confident.” Mariah Carey’s Baby Nursery Cost How Much?!?

This pregnant Ivanka Trump Playboy-style shot taken for, of all places, Harper’s Bazaar (which also features Britney Spears this month) is a little unusual. On the one hand, the picture accompanying their Ivanka interview is just strange. Why the Playboy juxtaposition? On the other, however, it’s gorgeous. Pose on top of a building? Check. Flawless hair and makeup? Check. Beautiful smile? Check. Great heels? Check. Perfect baby bump? Adorable check. Donald Trump sure generates a lot of controversy, but here’s one thing he created (by some miracle of genetics) that everyone can appreciate.
