What could possibly be more fun than ruthlessly judging the outfits of the rich and famous? Ruthlessly judging their baby name decisions, of course! As with their red carpet choices, some stars stuck to more mainstream territory this past year (Henry, Ava), others ventured into offbeat pastures (MirabellaBunny, DieselDean), and a fearless minority leapt into the land of the truly unusual (Cree, Kez).
To learn how the stars' name choices in 2011 fared among moms across the country, BabyCenter, the leading online pregnancy and parenting resource, asked more than 1,500 parents to cast their vote for most and least favorite name.
"Interestingly, the names that won the popularity contest overlap quite a lot with the top names of the year," says Linda Murray, BabyCenter's editor-in-chief. "Celebrities are usually admired for standing out from the crowd, but not so with baby names. Parents seem to like it when the stars reflect their own taste."
Kathy Ireland rose to fame as a supermodel in the 1980s and 1990s. She’s best known for appearing in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. She’s gone on to become an entrepreneur and build a multi-billion dollar empire with her brand “Kathy Ireland Worldwide.” Ireland tells Yahoo Life the first model she hired when she started her brand was her mom. “I love representing every shape, size, color and age,” she says. “We’re seeing that more and more and I love that. Everyone wants to be represented and I think that’s important.” She also says that old job description of “shut up and pose” is not acceptable anymore. She encourages women to use their voices. “Do not let anyone or your circumstances dismiss you.”
Olivia Mancuso’s wedding ceremony was truly stunning — a sight to behold in more ways than one. Olivia shared footage of the bizarre twist with her TikTok followers in honor of her one-year anniversary with her husband. Olivia and her husband, Fred, exchange glances — a silent communication that all married couples should master, honestly — and make it perfectly that this is not going according to plan.
