Celebrity baby news

Don't worry everyone, posting celebrity baby news is NOT going to become a priority on my blog! However, I felt this particular announcement deserved a note here.

Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr and husband Orlando Bloom recently had a baby boy. Ms. Kerr announced the birth by posting a photograph of herself nursing her 9lb 12oz son on her website, which People magazine's website, among other websites, republished. Ms. Kerr wrote: "I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labor, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him."

Congratulations to the Kerr-Bloom family, and kudos to Ms. Kerr for promoting BOTH breastfeeding and medication-free childbirth!
