True Blood‘s Ana Paquin and Stephen Moyer have two new bundles of joy to be thankful for this year. The couple finally brought home their 2-month old twins from the hospital, the UK Daily Mail reports. The twins were born prematurely and had to remain in the hospital for several weeks.
In the photo above from the article, the twins are being pushed in a tandem Britax double stroller with one white patterned blanket with pink prints and one with a dark blue or dark-colored print.
This week, Life & Style confirmed that they had a boy and girl. How perfect! No news on the names yet. They are the first twins for the two but Moyer’s 3rd and 4th kid. He has two kids from a previous relationship, 12-year old Billy and 10-year old Lilac.
When new first-time mom Jessica Simpson appeared on Katie Couric‘s new show Katie this Monday, September 10, she shared a photo of her gorgeous 4-month old daughter Maxwell in a sunny yellow knit bikini. The seemingly harmless move sparked outrage from a British child welfare charity Kidscape.
Its executive director Claude Knight called the outfit “totally inappropriate” telling the British tabloid the Daily Mail “It is very disturbing to see a young baby presented to the world wearing a bikini” and adding
“celebrity choices carry great influence, as can be seen by the manner in which their accessories and manners are copied widely. We should not be compromising the sanctity of our children’s early years.”
She scolded, “it is hoped that parents will understand that ‘baby bikinis’ are totally inappropriate and that they contribute to the sexualisation and commercialisation of childhood.”
What are your thoughts? Is it much ado about nothing or hypersensitivity? Did the group have a point and it inappropriate for Jessica to outfit a baby in that way?
