Helena Bonham Carter was spotted in Malibu with her 12-month-old daughter Nell and their nanny, who has a style similar to Helena’s. The trio spent the day shopping and hanging out at the playground.
When the 42-year-old actress was pregnant – she limited her intake of coffee, but admits it was tough to give it up entirely. “I didn’t drink caffeine as much as I would normally and try to restrict myself to one cup of coffee a day. One of my favorite dishes is carpaccio and I love sushi but I avoided them. Obviously anything with raw eggs was forbidden, too. “

Update: Brian and Leighanne Littrell have updated Brian’s website with the condition of their 6-year-old-son, Baylee. We reported on Friday that Baylee was hospitalized and undergoing “treatment.” Baylee has now been diagnosed with A-Typical Kawasaki Disease, an inflammation of the arteries that typically afflicts children. Following is Brian’s latest website posting:
“On Saturday December 20, 2008, Baylee T W Littrell was released from Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Atlanta. Before being admitted Baylee had been treated for or thought to have had strep throat, hand, foot, mouth disease and erythema multiforme. After receiving a biopsy, blood tests, an EKG and 2 echocardiograms, Baylee was finally diagnosed with A-Typical Kawasaki Disease. We would like to stress A-Typical because Baylee did not have text book symptoms of any of the viruses they thought he had.
Kawasaki Disease causes inflammation in the coronary arteries as well as the walls of the small and medium sized arteries throughout the body. Unfortunately, Baylee’s coronary arteries were affected. He received an IVIG, which is a treatment to bring down the inflammation in his coronary arteries. Baylee will be closely monitored for the next 6-8 weeks by a Pediatric Cardiologist to see if the treatment was effective.
We want to thank every one who prayed for us as well as all of the emails and phone calls. Your love and support means so much to our family. The Hospital Staff were absolutely amazing. They made an extremely difficult time in our lives as comfortable as possible. We are humbled by the love and compassion that people have for our son all over the world, thank you!
Brian and Leighanne Littrell”

“For those of you who do not know or have not heard, Baylee Littrell has been in the hospital for the past few days. He will be starting a treatment this afternoon and the Littrell family asks that all Backstreet Boys fans please remember him in prayer during this trying time. Every little prayer helps and every single prayer counts! Brian and Leighanne would also like to wish you all Happy Holidays and thank for your thoughts and prayers….More information will follow and we will definitely keep you all updated…..”
Incidentally, Brian was also sick as a child. At the age of 5, he took a tumble from his tricycle that his doctors later assumed signified the start of a bacterial infection that began circulating in his blood. The doctors told his parents to prepare for the worst. His recovery was a “miracle” according to his family.
Our thoughts are with the Littrell family.

2008 has been a big year for Clay Aiken, between his welcoming son Parker, now 4 1/2 months, in August, and coming out to People magazine. Clay spoke to People again about his year, his plans for the future, and what he feels is most important in his life.
“At the end of the day, Parker is the most important thing of the year, and of my life, without question. Having a son and that type of responsibility is obviously going to be something that I remember forever.”

As for his coming out, Clay says that, while there has been negative attention, he has also been “very impressed and my heart has been thoroughly warmed to find people very supportive.”
The 30-year-old singer plans to be return to being a full-time parent with Parker’s mom, Jaymes Foster, in North Carolina in January, after his run on Broadway’s Spamalot comes to a close.
“I want to spend time with Parker. He’s still uber-dependent,” Aiken says, laughing. “I’m ready for him to start talking. I’m ready for a little action!”
He also plans to return to his singing roots, saying,
“We’ll take a little bit of time, we’re not quitting or anything, we’re just gonna take it slow for a month or so and recollect once I get back,” he says. “I may never have any free time once Parker starts walking and talking!”
