Leonardo, Dax, Denzel, Milo, Asthon and 7 Other Celebs Who Inspired Baby Names (INFOGRAPHIC)

There can be no doubt that celebrities impact what names we give our babies. There is research to back it up. A survey by Names.org  looked at actors with unique names and found that as their star rose in Hollywood, the number of babies named after them skyrocketed.

“Most of the top 10 baby names of any year don’t come out of nowhere – they are usually quite popular the year before,” states CEO of RN Public Relations Rick Neil who handles PR for Names.org and who helped commission the study. “In fact, the top 10 names of any year are quite predictable.”

He added: “Since 1937, every single top 10 name for each year was in the top 25 the year before and nearly 99% of their time it was in the top 25 two years before. So, to make our predictions for 2018, we need to look no further than what is popular now. Some of the top boy names in 2016 (the most recent year the Social Security Administration has released data), including Noah, Liam, William, Benjamin, and James, will certainly make the list again in 2018. Likewise, Olivia, Emma, Ava, Sophia, and Mia will certainly be among the top girl names of 2018. We can say with nearly 99% certainty that the top 10 boy names and top 10 girl names of 2018 will be among the top 25 baby names of 2016. What about that other 1%? Check out the wildcard list of baby names trending now that might skyrocket in popularity.”

Foe example, Leonardo DiCaprio‘s career began in 1989 and that year, 398 boys were named Leonardo. As he got popular so did his name. In 2006, the year he filmed The Departed, 2,186 boys were named Leonardo.

Similarly, in 1998 when Ashton Kutcher filmed That 70s Show comedy, there were 1,028 boys were named Ashton. At the height of his popularity in 2005, when he filmed The Butterfly Effect, 5,435 boys were named Ashton.

 Dax Shepard, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Dustin Hoffman and many others have had an affect on baby names. Check out these 12:

I Love that Mila Kunis Keeps it 100 All the Time!

I love celeb mamas who keep it real, including A Bad Moms Christmas star Mila Kunis who recently opened up to ET about a variety of topics from family, the holiday traditions, to shedding baby weight and I’m here for it all!

You can catch a video of the interview here!

But among my fave parts include when she responded to the question about how she lost her baby weight after the birth of her now 10-month old son Dimitri. (She and husband actor/investor Ashton Kutcher are also parents to 3-year old daughter Wyatt). She didn’t mince words.

 “Lots of gym-ing. I hate someone who’s like, ‘This is all natural.’ Bullsh**. It’s not natural.” Ha! Love it! That’s right!

Also, it was like re-living watching moments from scenes of her role in the original Bad Moms when she got stressed out about raising her fictional children to be good people when she said this:

“Yeah, we’re not gonna raise a**holes. There’s enough a**holes in this world! We don’t need to contribute. But, you know, there’s some nice people.”

Amen sister!

I too come from a inter-religious family that celebrates many holidays and my husband grew up in a country, Trinidad, that celebrates Hindu, Christian, Muslim and several other religious as public holidays, so I could dig her answer on how her family celebrates the holidays:

 “I come from communist Russia, where you’re not allowed to be happy, so my holiday traditions are ‘be quiet.’ Coming to America is when you realize Christmas has a magical quality to it. In Russia, back in the day, it was a very religious holiday, so you don’t celebrate Christmas if you’re not Christian and if you’re not at Mass. So, I being Jewish, was like, ‘Christmas is not for you.’ We come to America and we’re like, ‘Christmas is so inclusive.’ We literally bought a Christmas tree. So as far as tradition goes, my family’s big on any excuse to get the family together and get drunk. Whether it’s Easter, which we’ve now all accepted into our Jewish household, or Christmas, it doesn’t matter. It’s all family time, but having kids, we’re building up our own little versions of tradition.”

Very cool.

Kunis is a woman and a mom right after my own heart! <3 Can’t wait to see her again in A Bad Mom’s Christmas! Loved the first movie so much!

 

 

 

 

Parenting Goals: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s Toddler Loves Louis Armstrong; Ella Fitzgerald

During a recent interview at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to talk about her latest projects, including a sequel to Bad Moms, Mila Kunis dished a bit about life as mom to two kids. She told E! News that her and hubby Ashton Kutcher‘s 2-year old daughter Wyatt loves her baby brother Dmitri.

“She loves her brother,” Mila gushed to E! News exclusively. “She wants him to sleep in her room and doesn’t get jealous or envious. She’s great. We got very lucky.”

While explaining that she can no longer handle too many drinks and that date nights have to end pretty early because they got babies, she also talked a bit about how busy Christmas is. The sequel to her last super hit show will be Bad Moms Christmas and will be released during the holidays.

It was most interesting to hear her say that she and hubby only gifted her daughter one gift, a plastic trumpet. First, she says because they know the family will spoil the children with toys so there is no need for the parents to pile on! Whoa! We totally agree with this one.

But second, and most interesting, is because her toddler loves jazz greats! What?

“She loves Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong so she always pretends to play the trumpet so we got her a little plastic trumpet,” she revealed. “That was her Christmas gift from us. The grandparents got her hundreds of gifts, hundreds, so that’s it.”

So great to learn she is exposing her child to non-pop music but also awesome that her daughter is actually developing a love and appreciation for them. Very cool! More reasons to love this couple!

We were already digging on them for getting simple wedding bands from Etsy  (supporting work-at-home mom artisans) and for Ashton’s groundbreaking work for child trafficking awareness, but also deciding to limit their children’s exposure to the public and letting them decide when they are old enough if they want to be public figures!

Oh yeah, and Wyatt speaks three languages already.

“She’s learning Russian,” Kutcher told  Late Night with Seth Meyers,  explaining that Mila’s family speaks Russian, so she gets plenty of exposure. “She has English down. She can like speak and understand English. She can speak and understand Spanish. And she can understand Russian, but she can’t really speak it yet.”

Yay, parents!

Actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher welcomed their second child, a baby boy, yesterday, an insider tells E! News.

According to reports, Kunis gave birth to the newborn whose name has yet to be released on November 30.  Married since July 2015, the couple are parents to 2- year old daughter Wyatt Isabelle.

The two were co-stars on the popular TV show That 70s Show.

Congrats!

Date Night Goals: Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher Announce Dodgers Opening LineUp

Mila Kunis, an avid Los Angeles Dodgers fan, and her husband actor Ashton Kutcher were the cutest looking thing Wednesday night when the couple announced the starting line up at the game against the Chicago Cubs.

The Bad Mom actress is coasting in the third trimester of her second pregnancy and was adorable in a Dodgers blue maternity striped team shirt with the number 1 on the back. Kutcher, a tech investor, wore the number 2 on the back of his version of the same shirt.

There were a lot of media jabs last night and today about how the numbers indicate who runs their household. The couple met on the set of That 70’s Show where they both played main character roles for the long-running sitcom.

I’d venture to say the answer may be neither as their daughter 2-year old Wyatt Isabelle may have something to say about who is in charge.

They were super cute during the game itself even pausing to do a little PDA as the prying eyes and smartphone cameras of fellow attendees went flicking off…like this one:

Pres. Obama Signed Law Requiring Changing Stations in Men’s Restrooms

obama babies act

The First Dad is looking out fall other dads.

Last week, the US President Barack Obama signed into law the Bathrooms Accessible in Every Situation Act, or the BABIES Act requiring publicly accessible bathrooms in federal buildings to have baby changing stations in both men’s and women’s bathrooms.

Rhode Island Representative David Cicilline introduced the bill in April this year which passed into law this summer with support from Republicans as well as Democrats and very little opposition.

Now dads out with baby can comfortably change a diaper and it won’t be all on moms and baby won’t have to wait until get home to get out of a stinky diaper.

Well…only when they’re in a federal building. The law still doesn’t apply to private facilities and neither does it  apply in employee-only bathrooms. Also, if a federal building already has a baby changing station in a male-accessible bathroom (such as a unisex single-stall bathroom), it doesn’t need to install another changing station in the men’s bathrooms. Well, that makes sense.

Changes in those area may come soon or maybe more private companies may buckle under pressure. Last year, actor Ashton Kutcher created a petition to get Target and Costco to add changing stations, arguing “dads, like myself, want to participate equally in the child care process and our society should support that.”

Also, a New York State Senator, Brad Hoylman, has noted that single fathers or same-sex couples are also out of luck if the only changing stations available are in women’s bathrooms.

Will Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Punk Us with Another Gender-Bender Baby Name?

ashton kutcher

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have selected a name for their soon-to-be-born 2nd child, a baby boy and we at the Bellyitch offices are hedging bets on whether they’ll flip the script on the gender bender celeb baby naming trend.

Kutcher confirmed that he and his wife are expecting  a baby boy after the two gave their first child, a daughter a male name: Wyatt.

In 2013, we blogged about the then celebrity -name trend of giving girls boy or unconventional objects names. Back then, the celebs on the list included:

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian : North

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon: Monroe

Lisa Ling: Jett

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson: Maxwell

Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z: Blue

Toni Collette: Sage

Gwynth Paltrow: Apple

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves: Vida

Then we updated that post in May 201 and noted that even more celebrities were naming their baby girls, traditional boy names:

Haylie Duff named her daughter Ryan
CaCee Cobb named her daughter Wilder a
Sara Gilbert has a daughter Sawyer.
Savannah Guthrie  named her daughter Vale
Ashton Kutcher  and Mila Kunis named her daughter Wyatt
Kristin Cavallari, Bristol Palin and Liv Tyler named their respective daugher, Saylor/Sailor
We also pointed out others that we missed
Rebecca Gayheart named her daughter Billie
Heidi Klum named her daughter Lou
Soleil Moon Frye has a daughter named Jagger Joseph
And recognized that the trend really isn’t that new given older celebs have “been” giving their baby girls boy names
Diane Keaton’s daughter is named Dexter
Teri Hathcher’s daughter is called Emerson
Michelle Branch‘s daughter is Owen
Melissa Etheridge’s daughter is named Johnnie
Rebecca Romijn‘s dauhter is Charlie
Angie Harmon is a rebel all three of her daughters have male names; Avery, Finley and Emery
Will the Kutchers join the likes of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz who named their son Genesis or Shakira who names her son Sasha? Time will tell. 

 

 

The Mila Effect: How Kunis Made 70s Style Mini Dresses Hot Again

throwback

Mila Kunis is well known for starring in the long-running comedy The 70s Show along with her husband Ashton Kutcher. So when she the second-time mom-to-be was spotted out recently in a 70s inspired floral mini dress with a short cropped denim jacket, she trended on several social media sites including Facebook and Twitter.





Seeing Kunis’ dress in the trending topic sparked my interest because I love shirt dresses and wear them often, like alot.

So naturally, I thought to curate some fab mini dresses with 70s flare that you can wear during any stage of your pregnancy if you are comfortable in having your legs exposed and wearing a short dress. And even if you are not, you can easily pair a short dress with leggings or cropped jeans underneath and still have the same fun, flirty and whimsical effect. Pow!

Get yourself a cute mini dress. Here are some styles to inspire your shopping trip:

 

How ‘Bad Moms’Mila Kunis Showed Again How Low-Key She & hubby Ashton Kutcher Are

 



Bad Moms star and current 2nd-time mom-to-be Mila Kunis revealed recently that she and her husband Ashton Kutcher got their wedding rings for about $90 each on Etsy, the popular website that sells hand made goods by local merchants.

While appearing on TBSConan Wednesday night promoting her new movie, Conan O’Brien praised her very unassuming wedding ring.

“It’s not showy,” the host told Kunis. “It’s not, like, incredibly flashy, which I think is cool.”

That’s when Kunis revealed more insight into the ring.

“I can’t believe that I’m telling anybody this story. So, my husband and I got married a little while ago. He got me a beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning!” the That 70s Show alum added. “But for our wedding bands—for when we got married—I decided to just get them off of Etsy.”

She also shared a bit about the details of the purchase.

When browsing Etsy, Mila explained, “I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. I mean, you can’t see it, but it’s super, super thin.”

She talked about being shocked at the price of Tiffany and Co. wedding bands.

“I was like, ‘They’re howmuch? This is astronomical,” the actress said. “So, I went on Etsy and I was like, ‘$90?’ I was like, ‘Buy now!’ Ashton’s was $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive.”

She already had the big engagement ring so a cheaper band was “not a big deal,” Mila added.

“My engagement ring is beautiful, but I don’t ever wear it. This ring, I’m like, ‘It’s $90!’ It’s great. That person on Etsy had no clue whose ring they were making, but they were wonderful and very nice and polite and generous.”

Kunis and Kutcher are parents to 2-year old daughter Wyatt. They are currently expecting their second child.

Editor’s note: I saw Bad Moms yesterday with a bunch of moms and it was a great time. We all laughed our way thru it.

It was like The Hangover meets Mean Girls.  And Kunis was wonderful in it. Convincing and relatable. Highly recommend!
