Britney Does It Again

We are living in a changed world. Britney Spears reportedly gave birth to a second son early Tuesday morning -- just a few days shy of baby no. 1's (aka Sean Preston) first birthday.

No word yet on a name and it's way too early to get pouty about a lack of baby pix. Satisfy yourself with a gander at this Britney birthing sculpture until we have the real deal.

Details continue to trickle out to wire stories and blogs. Here's a smattering of the latest:
- Baby weighed in at 6 lbs., 11 oz.
- Kevin was all smiles in delivery room.
- Will Xtina and Timberlake be godparents?
- Can Britney bring her career back from the brink?
- What will become of the name Jailynn and all the pink stuff?
- Is Britney the basis of "Law & Order" episode?

Me, I'm looking forward to seeing Britney get back in fighting form. She said that as soon she popped this one out she'd abandon her over-indulgence in fast food and get back to being the pop princess who did 1,000 situps a week (or was it a day? Hour?). I'm interested to see if she'll be able to regain any of the ground lost over the past two years -- both her career and her credibility have suffered from tabloid saturation and a series of PR disasters.

Let's hope she's learned a lesson from the various Sean Preston freak-outs over the past year (fall from high chair, driving with him on her lap, almost dropping him on a Manhattan street) and will transition into a less tabloid-friendly phase of parenthood. K-Fed provides plenty of material without having to bring the kids into it.

Until we get official word on the name, add to EW's growing list of suggestions or test your knowledge with this surprisingly rigorous celebrity baby quiz.
