Baby boom: Matt Damon, Celine Dion welcome babies (not together)
Both Celine Dion and Matt Damon announced new additions to their respective families over the weekend.
Dion gave birth to fraternal twin boys Saturday at St. Mary's Medical Center in Palm Beach, Fla. The Canadian chanteuse had been trying for years to have more children with husband/manager Rene Angelil and learned she was pregnant after her sixth in vitro attempt. They already had one son, nine-year-old Rene-Charles. A statement from Dion's medical team details the cesarean birth, the babies' birth weights (5lbs 10 ounces and 5 pounds 4 ounces) and, oddly, adds: "It should be known worldwide that this team agrees that Celine and Rene are clearly one of the most caring and kind individuals that they have ever cared for." We always thought they were one person.
No names have been released yet, but we're pulling for Prince Michael I and II.
Damon and his wife Luciana welcomed a daughter, Stella Zavala Damon, on Wednesday. This is Damon's third girl. The couple are already parents to Isabella, 4, and Gia, 2, and Luciana has another daughter, Alexia, 11, from a previous relationship. No word on whether the couple consulted with "Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Theresa Guidice (mother of Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana) on the names.
Damon recently told Parade magazine that Stella would be their last child.
"Lucy is in her third trimester for the fourth time and I think that's about enough to ask of any woman," Damon said. "I don't want to turn her into Ethel Kennedy."
Okay. But maybe she could turn into Little Edie Beale? That would be kind of neat.
