That’s so strange!! Just last night, I Googled Kimberly Williams because I couldn’t remember if she’s had her baby already.

That is one celebrity couple I like. She is gorgeous and I’ve heard she’s pretty down to earth.

I like the name William! Its so simple. And calling him Will is even cuter. Will Paisley! How cute!

Aw, yay for Kimberly and Brad! I love his name. It’s a strong name and not weird! 🙂
