Dax Shepard

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:

Kristen Bell and bump featured in Samsung commercial w/husband Dax Shepard

Veronica Mars’ Kristen Bell and her husband Parenthood‘s Dax Shepard are super adorable in the new Samsung commercial about the Holidays.  The long spot features Bell’s baby bump prominently as the couple are expecting their second child shortly. They welcomed daughter Lincoln last March 2013. 
In the commercial, Shepard makes runs to get foods to satisfy Bell’s cravings, and seemingly seems unhelpful in helping her pick the choice of cute maternity looks. Bell summed it up in her tweet presenting the commercial calling it what life is like in the Bell/Shepard household, the Daily Mail noted. Funny!
Check out a few stills and the commercial below!

How come Kristen Bell is enjoying a Paparazzi-free 2nd pregnancy



Second time mom-to-be Kristen Bell reports that since she launched her “No Kids” Policy earlier this year, she has been having a paparazzi-free pregnancy this round. 
Bell and her husband Parenthood‘s Dax Shepard got their celebrity friends involved to agree to not do interviews with tabloid and news outlets that publish photos of celebrity children taken without permission. It worked as several outlets stopped publishing the images. 
“The response has been so overwhelming that it’s really almost a moral stance that the consumer demanded their publications take,” Bell told the Associated Press in an interview. “We’re all consuming healthier media now.”
And the effect has tricked down to other celebrities who also report not being photographed as much when they are out with their children. 
“I feel a lot safer because I’m not followed at all now,” Bell said. “It makes me feel like we all rallied and did something — the good people that were on the side of responsible parenting and passionate about child welfare spoke up and made a difference, and that is a really invigorating feeling.”

Future isn’t first to accidentally reveal baby’s gender- History of Celebrity Slip Ups!

Poor Ciara!
She told People magazine that she didn’t want to reveal the gender of her baby.
“I do know the sex of my baby, but again I want to keep that special as well,” she told the magazine. 
But sadly that’s easier said than done when your partner has a tough time not revealing the gender to interviewers during media appearances.
The Body Party singer’s  fiance, hip hip artist Future, was interviewing with Tim Westwood when he repeatedly referred to the baby as “he” and “him”.

“The baby listening to music already now,” he said. “She [Ciara] sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. ‘The baby just listened to ‘Turn on the Lights,’ [Ciara said] ‘The version with me and you’. And I said you got to play the ‘anytime’ version  for him. Let him hear that. See how he kick. She played it for him and he started kicking like crazy.”

He also said that they have a baby name, that Ciara has “been shopping” for the baby and clearing out of closets and the guest room for the baby’s stuff.

See the video here and the banter about the baby starts at 9:23:

Eventually the “Turn on the Lights”  recording-artist told Westwood, who had previously asked about the gender, “see you got the sex out of me and you didn’t even know it.”
Future tried to refer to the baby as a “she” later and suggest it may be a girl but too late.

Today, most sites are reporting that Ciara is having a baby boy but do we really know? “You can’t believe the blogs,” Future said. “They done told so many lies on me.”

hmmm. 
Recall early in 2013 when Kristen Bell was pregnant, people assumed she was having a boy when she told Ellen that her fiance Dax Shepard would soon get a “tiny buddy” to go “off roading” with. 
We know that was wrong! We figured it out after photos of her baby shower showed lots of pink and guests going to her baby shower bearing gifts wrapped in pink.
She eventually gave birth to a daughter, Lincoln. 
Baby showers are generally when the public gets a clue of a celebrity baby’s gender.

Instagram photos of balloons spelling out “boy” at Rachel Zoe‘s shower in 2013 revealed that she was having a baby boy even though the reality TV star and designer had previously said she would not share the gender with the public before the baby’s birth.

In 2011, paparazzi shot January Jones shopping for blue colored clothing at a local Target. 


Also that year, Jessica Simpson accidentally told US Weekly that she was having a boy after saying she wanted to keep the gender private.
My kid’s going to think I’m pretty cool!” she told the magazine ” My kid’s going to think I’m pretty cool! This is a cool thing to welcome him to the world with.”
Keeping the baby’s gender secret if you are a celebrity is a challenge but it can be done. All they have to do is not shop for the baby in public, do interviews or have baby showers. Simple. (smile)

Olivia Wilde, Ali Larter support Kristen Bell’s anti-paparazzi social media campaign

Last year, Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry took on the paparazzi and successfully lobbied and got a law passed that put harsher restrictions on photographers who take pics of celebrity children.

The hope is that if the market dries up, the photogs will quit snapping the kids. 
It looks like current mom-to-be Olivia Wilde and past Bellyitch Bumpwatch mom Ali Larter are supporting the Shephards’ effort by retweeting Bell.

The Kardashians also put some work trying to get their millions of followers to support efforts challenging paparazzi target of celeb kids.

Good Luck!
