She looks somuch like her mom it’s crazy! She eats like a little maniac and she’sreally sweet. She barely ever cries, even when daddy is changing herdiaper, and believe me I suck when it comes to diapers, but I’mlearning!

CBB exclusive update 12:30 pm: We’ve heard from our source, a good friend of Joel’s, who tells us,
They’re still settling in with the baby. Joel told me the delivery went perfectly. No c-section obviously. He says Harlow is absolutelybeautiful. Apparently she has dark blue eyes, but they think they willturn brown, as many babies’ do. She has a little bit of dark brownhair, and looks a lot like Nicole.

She weighed in at 6 lbs, 7 oz, is 19 inches long and was born at 3:13 pm this afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Says a rep for the couple,
The beautiful healthy baby girl is home with her ecstatic parents.
The couple had kept the sex of the baby a delivery surprise (although if Nicole had her way, that wouldn’t have been the case!). News of the pregnancy was announced in June, with the couple throwing a baby shower to launch their children’s foundation in early December.
Thanks to everyone who emailed tips.
