June 2013 Celebrity Pregnancy & Birth Updates

Katlyn Joy |21, June 2013



In case you haven't gotten the latest Kim Kardashian and Kanye West now have a baby girl. Their daughter was reportedly due July 12, on Kanye's mother's birthday, but made her appearance 3 weeks prematurely. The baby was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after mother was admitted for complications on June 14. Father Kanye flew in from Europe just hours previously, having been across the pond to promote his new CD, Yeezus.

Baby's name? While Kim had hinted at a directional name, specifically Easton West back in March while on the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. But they went a different direction, naming their baby girl North West. She has no middle name and will have the nickname, "Nori". The baby required some incubator time as a preemie, but reportedly the whole family is doing well.

Halle Berry

The ever-lovely 46-year old pregnant mom refers to her latest pregnancy as a "miracle", and went on to say that pregnancy this time around at this time in her life is "one of the best things in my life for sure". Berry is mom to daughter Nahla, who is five, and from a previous relationship. Berry is now expecting a child with fiancé Olivier Martinez. The couple is expecting the baby in autumn although a specific date has not been revealed.

Prince William and Kate Middleton

The royal baby watch is nearing its final days, as the Duchess has now made her final public appearance as baby is due in mid-July. The royal couple has not announced the gender of the baby because they decided not to find out themselves. The baby will be delivered at the same hospital as the Princes William and Harry were, St. Mary's Hospital in central London, with the father in the delivery room with mom. Prince William will take a two week paternity leave. Yes, he does have a job besides being royal, flying on a search and rescue helicopter with the Royal Air Force.

The new baby's hospital visitors will be restricted to family members only but a first will occur as the baby's vitals, time of birth, weight and gender, will be tweeted officially. The baby's birth is expected to garner the British economy 0 million in souvenirs and memorabilia. Kate has reportedly been doing yoga a few times a week in preparation for birth and to stay relaxed and is considering hypnobirthing and a birthing pool for laboring.

Life Threatening Birth for actress Kathyrn Fiore

She may not be a household name yet, but the actress of The Wedding Band tv series has also in Mission Impossible III, MADtv, and other films and tv shows. However, Fiore is a true survivor after bringing her daughter Alice Harper into the world on May 28. Fiore, 33, is married to actor, Gabriel Tigerman who has appeared on Supernatural and Grey's Anatomy.

Fiore required an emergency cesarean, but things became quite scary quickly as the actress experienced a uterine hemorrhage and required over 2 liters of blood. Then she went into organ failure and septic shock. Her heart, kidneys, lungs and liver all ceased functioning and her limbs were at risk because of blood clotting issues. The critical birth scenario is thought to have been caused by either a rare blood disease called HUS, which could have been caused by the pregnancy or the surgery. Another possibility is the crisis came about due to an amniotic fluid embolism. The baby required assistance breathing at birth and was rushed to the NICU. However, the baby girl was taken home by her father 10 days after her birth.

Fiore's condition stabilized after 12 days, but she has a tough road ahead requiring physical therapy to help her relearn to walk and to regain function in her hands. She has required dialysis and will continue to need these treatments as well as oxygen treatments. Friends of the family have started a fund to help with financial costs as the working acting family's insurance may not be sufficient for all the costs associated with the birth and continuing care. Fiore will also need professional nursing care during this difficult transition. Her husband intends to take time off work to care for his wife and daughter full time.

Katlyn Joy is a mother to 7 children, and a freelance writer. She earned her Master of Arts in Creative Writing and Poetry, and a Bachelor of Arts in English and was previously an adviser to new mothers on breastfeeding through a maternity home program. She currently resides in Colorado with her family.
