The Duggars Welcome Their 18th Child

Michelle Duggar and husband Jim Bob welcomed their 18th child, daughter Jordyn-Grace Makiya, this morning in Arkansas. She was delivered by Caesarean section at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers, weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20 inches long.

“The ultimate Christmas gift from God,” said Jim Bob Duggar. “She’s just absolutely beautiful, like her mom and her sisters.”

Jim Bob Duggar said Michelle started having contractions Wednesday night. She needed the C-section, her third, because the baby was transverse. Jim Bob said both baby and mother were doing well Thursday night.

“We both would love to have more,” he said.

The Duggars now have 10 sons and eight daughters – Joshua, 20; twins John-David and Jana, 18; Jill, 17; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 14; Joseph, 13; Josiah, 12; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jeremiah and Jedidiah, 9; Jason, 8; James, 7; Justin, 6; Jackson, 4; Johannah, 3; and Jennifer, 17 months.

The cable network TLC broadcasts a weekly show about the Duggars, called Seventeen and Counting.

“Our whole family is excited about Jordyn’s addition to our family,” Jim Bob Duggar said. “She’s just perfect in every way.”

    Tori & Dean Prepare For Stella’s First Christmas

    Life & Style got a sneak peak inside the Spelling-McDermott household this holiday season. Not only are Tori and Dean excited to celebrate the holidays with their 21-month-old son, Liam, they are are getting ready to enjoy baby Stella’s first Christmas.

    Tori, 35, revealed how they will spend Christmas Day: “We’ll have a family morning at home opening presents. Stella’s ready for some learning toys, so we might get her an activity gym for the floor and a bouncer,” said the actress, who loves making gingerbread houses on Christmas Eve. “And I have to spoil her with a dress or two,” Tori added.

    When asked about a stocking for her 6-month-old daughter, Tori said she’s searching for one adorned with a ladybug, since that’s Stella‘s nickname.

    Tom & Connor Cruise Compete @ The Box Office

    Tom Cruise’s 14-year-old son Connor will have a slight advantage on his father at the box office this holiday season. As we reported back in April, Connor Cruise landed his first movie role in Will Smith’s new flick Seven Pounds, which opens tomorrow. Just six days later on December 25, Tom’s new movie Valkyrie hits theaters.

    Connor, playing a small supporting role, is one of two children from Tom’s marriage to Nicole Kidman. Tom and Nicole also have a 15-year-old daughter, Isabella.

    Huffington Post reports that Tom is very proud of Connor’s acting gig: “Who knows what he’s going to do?” Tom said. “He’s grown up on [acting]. I’ve always had my kids there, in hair and makeup, just always around the sets. They’ve worked on sets.”

    Tom went on to say he’s played acting class games with all three of his children, and they’ve often watched him develop characters. The 46-year-old superstar recalled the day he drove Connor to his audition for Seven Pounds as a “great father-son moment.” Tom and Will Smith, who are close friends, were in the room when director Gabriele Muccino asked them to leave: “[Muccino] looked at me and Will, and Will and I were like, `How’s he doing?’ And the director just said, `Out!’ So we were standing in the hall for about half an hour or something, wondering, `What’s going on in there? What’s happening?'”

    Clearly Connor did something right – he got the part! Connon plays a young Ben Thomas, Will Smith’s character, in the movie. Which movie would you rather see – Tom or Connor’s?
