In the latest issue of Elle, Mariah Carey gushes about new husband Nick Cannon. Specifically, the singer praises her man for how perfect a father she predicts he will be.

"I couldn't imagine anybody that I've ever met being a better dad," Carey told the magazine, adding that she wants to raise her future children in a responsible, anti-Dina Lohan manner.

Mason Dash Disick

"You can get caught up in Hollywood-land or celebrity-land, and that's maybe not the best thing for kids, 'cause they didn't ask for it... I really feel like it's very important to be responsible and to think, 'Well, maybe if I do this it's not the best thing for my child.'"

We're shocked and proud to hear such sage words coming from Mariah.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon: Black, white and sexy!

Carey added that she and Cannon share "a similar spiritual outlook on life."

They also share the potential for a top-notch celebrity couple nickname. Mannon? Mick? Nariah? Write in with your favorite today!

Aside from the probably-faked profile and MySpace pic, there have been no pictures of Jamie Lynn Spears' baby, Maddie Briann Aldridge. Until now!

Since giving birth on June 19 , Jamie Lynn Spears has done what any pretty, young, first-time mom would - some serious clubbing with no pants!

Oh wait, that's just Britney Spears.

In Jamie Lynn Spears' case, she's laying low at home in Louisiana and Mississippi, making sure Maddie Briann has everything she needs.

Being away from the shining lights of Hollywood is making it all easier to learn the ins and outs of first-time motherhood, says Jamie Lynn.

"Around here, everyone has the same focus," Jamie Lynn told family celeb gossip magazine OK. "The focus is family, and that's a good way to live."

Maddie Briann Aldridge, Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears, 17, has been taking parenting classes and enjoying the new house she shares with baby Maddie Briann Aldridge and fiance Casey Aldridge.

While the former Zoey 101 star and her 19-year-old baby-daddy have not yet set a date for their wedding, they remain closer than ever.

Jamie Lynn, who revealed to OK! that her labor was induced, said she gave birth with no complications to Maddie Briann Aldridge naturally, and that Casey was the one and only person she wanted by her side in the delivery room.

Usher may takes his job as a singer very seriously, but it's nothing compared to how focused he is on raising his 9-month-old namesake, Usher Raymond V.

The latter makes his public debut on the August cover of Essence magazine, as the former talks up the responsibility of fatherhood.

Brad, Angelina and Six Kids!

"Now I represent what he is to become," Usher says about his son. "He's gonna admire me, he's gonna look up to me. He's gonna say, 'I wanna be' or he should say 'I wanna be like my father. I wanna be a man of valor. I wanna possess what my father has as a man.'"

As for advice Usher and wife Tameka Foster have for other parents, the musician says:

"You should never abandon that responsibility, which is to be there, reading with your child, being supportive of your child's growth."

We have one other piece of advice: you should never debut your child the same day Jamie Lynn Spears comes out with her first photo with Maddie Briann.

Come on, Usher and Tameka. Little Usher simply can't compete with Maddie for publicity.

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves have named their son Levi.

While we don't feel an explanation is necessary for such an awesome moniker, McConaughey dropped this bit of knowledge on fans anyway:

"Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person. Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: 'If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'"

Amen, Matthew. Amen.

With a father that looks like this, Levi Alves McConaughey is in good hands. And feet. And pectorals.

Chris Martin of Coldplay fame doesn't see anything wrong with Nicole Kidman naming her daughter Sunday or Jessica Alba calling her girl Honor.

The 31-year-old rocker - who named his son Moses and daughter Apple - tackles the subject in the new issue of Blender:

Sandra and Louis

"People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands. There's nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that's what you want to call your child. It's no stranger than Sarah. A name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f--k what everyone else says."

With all due respect, Chris, you're an idiot! While we get your point, we're pretty sure that l'il Chewbacca Martin would find his (her?) name a little different than Sarah Martin once the fellow second graders got wind of it. No?

We applaud Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves for choosing a name that's a bit different, yet not completely absurd. More on that later!
