Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have named their new son Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Doesn’t the phrase "Bronx Mowgli" sound like some rare affliction whose original carrier is probably that greasy bear Aaron Rose on Gossip Girl? The original Mowgli from The Jungle Book clearly does not approve. Though I do see the resemblance. We can’t wait for mom and dad’s next child, Staten Island Aladdin.

Amy Poehler and husband Will Arnett welcomed their first child, son Archie Arnett, Saturday, her publicist confirms. "He is 8 lbs. 1 oz.," rep Lewis Kay said in a statement. "Amy, Will and Archie are all healthy and resting comfortably."
Seth Meyers, Poehler’s coanchor on Saturday Night Live‘s "Weekend Update," broke the news to viewers, announcing that Poehler’s chair was empty because she was "having a baby." Special guest Maya Rudolph and current cast member Kenan Thompson then serenaded Poehler with a custom rendition of "Can’t Take My Eyes Off You."
Poehler is expected to leave SNL after this season to star in her own NBC sitcom. While SNL fans ponder whether the show can survive without her, fans of the 2007 film Blades of Glory, in which Poehler and Arnett costarred as a pairs figure skating team, might have an idea what the couple is wondering: Asked in one of the DVD bonus features (below, at three minutes) if they were ever to have a baby, would it be the funniest child in the world, they broke character, giggled, and gave a genuine answer:
Poehler: We think we might have the most unfunniest child.
Arnett: We have always imagined that we’d have a Sean Penn-like child.
Poehler: A little baby Sean Penn.
Arnett: Real brooding, Method-y actor.
Poehler: Smokin’ all the time….I hope my baby doesn’t smoke. I don’t know what kind of baby we’re gonna have. I really should get on this.
Then, the conversation turns naughty.
We think Archie will be just fine.

Is there something inherently hypocritical about the cover story in the new issue of W, which depicts a breast-feeding Angelina Jolie on its cover? The cover line accompanying the image promises exclusive "private photos," which apparently have been snapped by her baby daddy, Brad Pitt. Not surprisingly, the reaction to the photo has been mixed with some people lauding Brangelina for being open about breast feeding, something still considered taboo in our nation’s more puritanical circles, while others are crying foul that the "private" moments have been sold to the highest bidder and put on a national magazine cover — the inherent hypocrisy mentioned earlier.
I’m typically one to cry, "Sellout!" pretty early with stuff like this, but this particular case made me think twice. Not only does the beautiful, natural photo of mommy and baby help dispel the antiquated notion that breast feeding is anything to be ashamed of, it’s also a case of an extremely famous celebrity couple taking control of their own image and spinning it in a positive way. I first thought about this last summer, when Pitt and Jolie sold the first photos of themselves with their babies to People magazine and the British tabloid Hello! for $14 million and gave the money to charity. Why let some stranger/stalker cash in on your own "private moments" and plaster photos all over the Internet that you have no control over?
Yesterday, when Annie asked you what action figure you’re dying for, some of you mentioned Charlie as Green Man from FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. (Enjoy a clip after the jump.) Well, we can’t give you that, but we can tell you how you can take home another piece of Sunny: An official Dumpster Baby Trophy (pictured).

Okay, this is just hilarious. It turns out there are 16 different tots — only three of them boys! — who have played baby Aaron on Lost. This past weekend, all of them (and their parents, who were probably a total buzzkill) got together for a picnic in Hawaii. From the Honolulu Advertiser’s report, the gathering seems to have been a three-way hybrid of casting call, bragging session, and straight-up picnic. One mom boasted that her daughter had made the cover of TV Guide and also appeared in Entertainment Weekly (that rag?) and "had tiny pictures in People and Us Magazine." Burn! The other babies — all of whom wore black tees emblazoned with BABY AARON, by the way, must have been so pissed off. In fact, let’s imagine their internal dialogue right now.
AARON 1: Aaron 8 has gained way too much weight for this role.
AARON 2: Choose me! Pick me. Love ME.
AARON 5: It’s gonna be me! It’s Aaron, bitch.
AERRIN: I spell my name in a unique way. Can I get a profile in the National Enquirer or what?
AARON 8: Ba ba! NOW!
AARON 16: All y’all infants need to shut up, ’cause Aaron 16* got to nuzzle against Evangeline Lilly’s rack.
*If Aaron 16 continues to refer to himself in the third person, he should have a long and successful career in crappy reality television.
By all means, feel free to jump to the comments section and put words in the other Baby Aarons’ mouths!

I’m sure, like all newborns, little Maddie Briann is adorable, but a full head of daddy’s digits sounds ever so slightly macabre, no? (I will spare you the obvious "toehead" joke and end this ill-advised blog item right here, right now.)
Lil Wayne’s feverishly anticipated, infinitely delayed album Tha Carter III may not have a firm release date yet — latest word is it’ll be out on June 10 — but boy, does it have some cover art. Since last night, when Amazon.com posted the oddly enthralling image to the left, the hip-hop blogs have been ablaze. Wayne, it would seem, wants the world to see his magnum opus as the work of a thoughtful, tatted-up toddler. Is it real? Is it fake? In sum, HUH?
First things first: Wayne’s label confirms that yes, this is the actual cover art for Tha Carter III. Wow. Maybe all those times he dubbed himself "Weezy F. Baby, please say the baby," he wasn’t honoring his mentor Bryan "Baby" Williams after all. He was just shouting out his inner mafioso-esque child! What’s more, I think I finally understand why last summer, the one time I talked to Wayne — shortly before he abruptly began screaming profanities for no apparent reason and hung up on me — he told me he’d been recording Tha Carter III "my whole life… working on every album I ever dropped my whole life." I’d assumed it was just another semi-coherent boast, but I see now that he was being mad literal. Ladies and gents, we have now seen the face of the nursery-schooler who composed "Lollipop."
Okay, jokes aside (they’re just too easy!), I actually kinda dig this cover. It’s a clear play to place Carter III in the pantheon of all-time classic rap albums featuring baby pix: Illmatic, Ready to Die… Weezy’s power resides in his unparalleled chutzpah, his refusal to surrender an inch of creative freedom to his legions of detractors. Why shouldn’t he slap a patently ridiculous, self-important Photoshop job on the front of his new CD? Besides, if he’s finalized his album cover, maybe that means we’re a little closer to actually hearing this thing within our lifetimes. Hallelujah! But what do you think of all this?
I was so charmed by this clip of Jenna Fischer gabbing with pregnant Angela Kinsey (from her "Adventures with Angela" vlog series on the official website for The Office), I had to share. In this installment, the costars hang out in a hotel room as Fischer recalls her NYC runway debut in a charity fashion show, and they both try to figure out the Heidi Klum supermodel strut:
Not only does this footage remind me how painfully long it’s been since The Office has been on the air (remember, it’s back April 10!), but it’s an entertaining glimpse into the friendship between two actresses who so convincingly portray nemeses (for non-Office fans, Fischer plays receptionist Pam and Kinsey plays accountant Angela). In fact, the video makes me miss one of my favorite shows and my favorite girlfriends. I’m planning a June vacation with a close group of friends right now, and I actually think these down-to-earth chicks would fit right in with us. Although we don’t glam it up with lip gloss when we’re just hanging out, and there are more bottles around. But you know what I mean.
In the past, we’ve asked which famous men or women you PopWatchers would genuinely like to date, and now that it’s that Spring Break time of year, let’s dish about this: Which TV stars do you think you’d have the most fun going on vacation with, and where?
I know, I know, this blog item might as well have been written by a nine-year-old boy, but every time I look at the first line of this People.com headline, I can’t stop myself from snickering:
"Joel Madden Celebrates Baby No. 2."
No. 2… heh-heh. Okay, I’ll stop now.
That headline actually makes no sense, since Wendy Wilson’s Supernanny episode was probably taped months ago. The Wilson Phillips songstress signed up for a visit from ABC and Jo Frost upon a neighbor’s suggestion. (Ouch.) In the episode, which airs tomorrow night at 9, Wendy realizes how having a Beach Boy for a father might have affected her own laid-back parenting policy — something she didn’t expect to open up about… Ah, who cares, you know the only reason I’m posting about this is to have an excuse to embed the video for "Hold On"! (It’s after the jump.)
