Princess Letizia & Crown Prince Felipe Welcome A Daughter

Princess Letizia

There was cause for nationwide celebration in Spain over the weekend as Princess Letizia and Crown Prince Felipe welcomed a daughter on Sunday.

Just hours after the little Sofia was delivered by Caesarean section weighing 7lbs 5oz, her proud father stepped out of the clinic to share the happy news with the world.

The prince, who was present at the delivery, described his wife as being “very calm” during the birth, but confessed he’d been “a little nervous” – as the Caesarean added a measure of uncertainty to the event. Both mother and daughter are in good health.

The new arrival is third in line to the Spanish throne after her father and her year-and-a-half old sister Leonor. Having apparently toyed with a long list of names, the couple settled on Sofia, after Felipe’s mother.

While one of the crown prince’s sisters, Elena, has just two children – a son and daughter – his other sibling, Cristina, is a mum of four. Whether or not the latest addition completes Felipe and Letizia’s family remains to be seen. For now Felipe says the pair will have “our plate full with work and happiness” in raising Leonor and Sofia.



Britney Keeps Dancing!

Britney was snapped heading to North Hollywood’s Millennium Dance Studio Saturday to continue dance rehearsals. On Friday Britney was pulled over for speeding in Beverly Hills, but she did not receive a ticket. I don’t particularly like her outfit…and I am not a prude! I guess though, that since she is a performer she can get away with it! The outfit does showcase her fabulous figure!


Elisabeth Hasselbeck & Husband Expecting Their Second Child!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s dream of getting pregnant again has come true!

“Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 29, co-host of ABC’s The View, will announce live on-air today that she is pregnant with her second child and is due in November,” ABC said in a statement.

“Tim and I are incredibly thankful and excited,” Elisabeth said in the statement.
Elisabeth and her husband, New York Giants quarterback Tim Hasselbeck, 29, will celebrate their five-year anniversary in July. They welcomed their first child, Grace Elisabeth, on April 6, 2005…on Tim’s 27th birthday!

When she returned to The View after a six-week maternity leave, Elisabeth told viewers: “Grace is amazing. She likes to eat a lot and sleep a lot – just like her father.”

Elisabeth’s news is the second big announcement for The View in as many weeks: On Wednesday, cohost Rosie O’Donnell revealed that she will be leaving the show at the end of the season.

Rosie, 45, and the politically conservative Elisabeth had often clashed on-air, but Elisabeth told People magazine they’re pals offstage: “Politically, we’re rivals,” she said. “That is clear. However, we are personally friends. We are on e-mail all day long with each other.”

Elisabeth, a onetime artist and accessories designer, made her TV debut in 2001 as a contestant on Survivor: The Australian Outback (she finished fourth). She went on to host the Style Network’s The Look for Less before replacing Lisa Ling on The View in 2003.
She is so cute! I’m so happy for her!
