Carey Mulligan pregnant Marcus Mumford welcome first child

Life is pretty great for Carey Mulligan: She’s a new mom!

The Suffragette actress has welcomed her first child with her husband, Mumford & Sons’ frontman Marcus Mumford, according to E! News.

“Carey has given birth to a healthy and happy baby,” a source says. “She is just enjoying this time with her family and close friends.”

The mom-to-be, 30, managed to keep her growing baby bump mostly under wraps in a structured gown while arriving to the Tony Awards back in June, where she was nominated for best performance by an actress in a leading role in a play for Skylight.

And while the notoriously private couple — who wed on a farm in Somerset, England, in 2012 — have yet to comment on their happy news, Mulligan’s pal Sienna Miller admitted to Vogue in May that she was looking forward to her friends starting a family.

Cate Blanchett Got Her Son’s Name from a Captain Underpants Book (Yes, It’s True!)

10/07/2015 at 02:30 PM ET

Cate Blanchett‘s older children’s monikers draw from a literary great and an iconic filmmaker, but when it came time to name her third child, the Oscar-winner turned to Captain Underpants.

Blanchett said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she and husband Andrew Upton had “run out of ideas” when Ignatious, now 7, came around.

“Dash, I guess came from Dashiell Hammot, and Roman … Polanski, but it’s also the French word for book, and Ignatius came from this book called Captain Underpants,” she says.

Every parent wants their child to follow in their footsteps, but Holly Madison is hoping that 2½-year-old daughter Rainbow Aurora‘s future path steers clear of the Playboy Mansion.

“When she is an adult, she will be able to do what she wants, but from day one I’ve tried to raise her to know she has value, her body parts have value, and she doesn’t have to do something cheap or tawdry to get attention,” Madison told Yahoo! Parenting.

“If she wanted to [be a Bunny] — and God forbid she did — I would tell her my whole experience with it and I’d be honest that it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”

In fact, Madison reveals, one of the reasons she wrote Down the Rabbit Hole, her tell-all book about her time as Hugh Hefner‘s number one girlfriend, was to make sure that Rainbow knew the whole story about her mother’s time in the mansion.

The first day of school was tough for dad Bill Rancic.

“He didn’t want to go!” the reality star tells PEOPLE of Duke, his 3-year-old son with Giuliana Rancic.

But nearly a month later, the tyke is finally adjusting.

“He’s hanging in there now,” Bill says. “Still having the lip out a little bit. But he’s made a lot of friends.”

It’s welcome news for the family, who moved to Chicago full-time earlier this year so that Duke could go to school there. “We love it,” says Bill. “Our son loves city living. This is a great central hub for us.”

And will Duke be getting a sibling anytime soon? “We’ll see,” says Bill. “I’d love for him to have a brother or sister.”

Giuliana and Bill Rancic aren’t actively trying for another baby, but the former E! News anchor admits they’re open to expanding their family.

“We would love to have another child,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s always a conversation we have and it’s something we definitely would love to do. If God blesses us with a child, it’d be incredible.”

But while the couple would “love” to give their son, 3-year-old Edward Duke, a sibling, Giuliana says they have plenty to keep them busy for now.

“There’s really nothing in the works right now to be quite honest,” she shares. “I think there’s been a lot on our plate lately with moving to Chicago and Duke starting school there.”

Giuliana and Bill have been open with their fertility issues on their reality show Giuliana and Bill and she has been public with her battle against breast cancer in 2011.

Baby on the Way for Allison Holker and Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss

10/05/2015 at 10:15 PM ET

An exciting announcement was made on Dancing with the Stars Monday night, and it had nothing to do with the competition.

Professional dancer and last year’s runner up Allison Holker shared the news that she and her husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, are expecting a baby together.

“This was such an amazing night and I’m so glad the news is finally out there,” she told PEOPLE after the show. “It has been so hard to keep it bottled up inside me — both literally and figuratively!”

She adds, “I’m so excited for everyone to know and be able to celebrate with us because our whole family is just so excited about this. It’s the biggest blessing.”

Holker made the announcement in the green room before she and her partner, Andy Grammer, took the stage.
