Congratulations to Evan Rachel Wood and her husband Jamie Bell: They have a new baby boy.

It’s always a big “Sunrise, Sunset” moment for the rest of us when two former child stars reproduce (Wood has been a working actress most of her life and Bell starred in “Billy Elliot.”) But at least these two seem prepared for parenthood — they’ve been tweeting about it for ages. “Its a boy!! Song of the day “beautiful boy” #johnlennon,” Wood tweeted.

Her husband praised her fortitude on his own Twitter feed. “Wow! What a day. Evan you are my warrior! You never cease to amaze. Thank you for birthing our son so naturally & peacefully. You did it!”

Totally serious question: Do today’s baby books have a “Baby’s First Tweets” section?

Jenna Dewan-Tatum took to Twitter for some peace of mind during her pregnancy — with some famous friends providing answers. “Ok my fellow preggers ladies, about these hormonal dreams,” Dewan-Tatum, who just had her first child with husband Channing Tatum, tweeted. “Is it normal to fly on a magic carpet while presenting at Golden Globes?”

Luckily Dewan-Tatum’s pal Wood was online to reassure her. “Totally normal,” Wood wrote. “I floated away while holding on to balloons and yelled at my dentist’s assistant in my dream.”
