Shiloh, Suri have new competition for world’s cutest kid

Hollywood High School just got another beautiful face for the class of 2031: Halle Berry and husband Olivier Martinez welcomed their first child together, a boy, on Saturday, her rep told People. No name has been announced yet, but our fingers are crossed for Simba, to pair nicely with Nahla (Berry’s 5-year-old daughter with ex Gabriel Aubry). The 47-year-old shocked many with her pregnancy news earlier this year, even herself: “[I] thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me,” she told CNN in April. “So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”

Ed Hardy designer no longer hard for Gosselin
Once upon a time, Jon Gosselin lived a life of privilege: designer hair-plugs, swanky apartments in the Trump Tower, yacht vacations with Ed Hardy founder Christian Audigier. But oh, how the tables he presumably waits on have turned: TMZ caught up with Audigier on Friday, and he didn’t have many good things to say about the former reality star house-husband. “I hate him,” the designer told the cameras as he was leaving Hollywood club Bootsy Bellows. He didn’t go into details, but TMZ notes that Ed Hardy himself isn’t a fan of Gosselin — who now lives in a cabin and waits tables for a living — anymore because sales of his line plummeted after the reality star became associated with the brand. That’s probably because even wearers of Ed Hardy have to draw the line somewhere.
