Future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi becomes a grandmother again

11/15/2006 at 09:51 AM ET

Nancy Pelosi has had an amazing week.  First last Tuesday the Democrats won back control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, then she was elected Speaker of the House (the first woman to have the position), and then the veteran California Representative became a grandmother for the sixth time when her daughter filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi and her husband, Dutch TV journalist husband, Michiel Vos, welcomed their first child Paul Michael Vos.  Paul, 8 pounds, 10 ounces, was born via natural childbirth on Monday at 10:30 am.  He was named after Nancy’s husband Paul. 

Alexandra said that Nancy told her, "’If we don’t win the House, I’ll be your baby nurse.’ I was a cynic so I didn’t have a baby nurse lined up before the election."

Even with the hubbub of campaigning, Nancy helped Alexandra prepare the baby’s room in her Manhattan apartment. Alexandra said, "I thought newborns in New York didn’t need their own piece of real estate, but she moved me out of my office!  The best part was when she said, ‘Maybe you should sleep in the small bedroom and let the baby have the big room.’ I said no!"  Nancy also went on a shopping spree at Buy Buy Baby, picking up a Bugaboo ("They’re Dutch and Michiel’s Dutch," explained Alexandra), a mobile, bassinet and bedding. 

Alexandra is a journalist, writer, and documentary filmmaker whose first film Journeys with George followed George W. Bush on his first presidential campaign.  She just finished editing a movie about Evangelical Christians for HBO.

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton has been ordered to stop stealing photos from Splash News and Picture Agency. The internet gossip columnist – real name Mario Armando Lavandeira – was handed a Cease and Desist order from the agency’s lawyers on Tuesday. The 28-year-old blogger who can be seen virtually everyday sitting in his working office – the corner of the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf café on Sunset strip – was slapped with the warning in person. In a letter drawn up by Makarem & Associates, the agency warned Lavandeira to take down exclusive images of Britney Spears holding her baby Sean Preston in Kentwood, Louisiana. Perez honey why didn’t you curse em out!!!! ha ha ha thanks for saving our asses.. you get in trouble so we don’t ha ha ha
