Some contests are no-brainers.

We don't suspect our ongoing Lauren Conrad-Heidi Montag debate to be a close race when it comes to fan sentiment. Of course, personality often plays a role in that face-off as well.

High Heeled

When celebrity babies collide, though, gossip readers had best watch out. More often than not, the cuteness meter is going to be off the charts.

Below, Suri Cruise and Violet Affleck both don similar, adorable sun dresses and look absolutely precious. Who gets your vote as the best dressed?

This celebrity baby battle is going down to the wire.

While the spawn of TomKat may take a lot of abuse simply because of her famous (and somewhat strange) folks, there's no doubting what a little sweetheart she is.

As for Violet (left) - the daughter of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck - very little is said about her one way or the other. This has to change! Look how awesome she is! Ben can't keep living off his Good Will Hunting fame forever.

What was previously celebrity gossip can now be classified as celebrity news: Tameka Foster is pregnant.

Just a week after hinting that babies could be in the future for herself and Usher, the engaged couple has announced to the Associated Press and People that they're expecting their first child together, due in the fall.

Tameka Foster and Usher

"We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together," Usher and Foster said in a statement released to the Associated Press Wednesday. "We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives."

A controversial fianceee, Tameka Foster hasn't exactly been welcomed the arms of her true love's fans. They call her a gold-digger and an ugly person, insults typically reserved for Heather Mills.

"What people don't realize is that Usher and I were friends for nearly seven years and I worked as his personal stylist for five years. I was the only female friend he felt he could talk to," Tameka recently told Essence magazine, as she tried to defend their relationship.

When asked about plans for babies like little Sam Alexis Woods, Foster added: "Yes, I do plan to have children with Usher. This is the man I love and plan to spend the rest of my life with, so why wouldn't I want to share that bond of bringing another life into this world with him?"

This will be the fourth child for Foster as she attempts to rival Shar Jackson for largest litter.

How will Usher's fans react to the news? Probably as well as Trista Sutter reacted to the idea of cameras filming her pregagncy.

Tiger Woods is here to inspire those that have gotten down on the world of sports recently.

And for once, this golfing god is not doing it through the use of his driver.

Instead, Tiger and wife Elin Nordegren are the proud parents of Sam Alexis Woods, a celebrity baby that may just rival Shiloh Nouvel for cuteness.

People magazine reports that the Woods family, which includes dogs Taz, a border collie, and Yogi, a labradoodle, are doing well.

"This is truly a special time in our lives and we look forward to introducing Sam to our family and friends over the next few weeks," Tiger wrote in a message on his site on June 18, the day Sam was born.

The couple's first child was born during a time when athletes aren't exactly acting as role models. Consider:

  • Tom Brady has fathered a child out of wedlock with Bridget Moynahan.
  • Barry Bonds is a jerk who has obviously taken steroids.
  • Mark Philippoussis has reportedly slept with many loose women, including Paris Hilton and Tara Reid. Yuck.
  • Professional wrestler Chris Benoit allegedly murdered his wife and son before taking his own life.

Indeed, it's a troubling time to be a sports fan. But Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren remind us that there's still beauty in the world of athletics.

Of course, Amanda Beard nude photos also help us remember this fact.

Woods and Nordegren, a Swedish former nanny and model he met at the 2001 British Open, were married in 2005.

Julia Roberts is showing other celebrities just how this baby thing is done.

While Kate Walsh and Holly Madison are merely rumored to be pregnant, this gorgeous actress is popping out kids left and right.

Earlier today, Roberts welcomed her third child, a boy named Henry Daniel Moder.

He was born in Los Angeles and weighed 8½ lbs. As Henry joins twins Hazel and Phinnaeus in the Moder clan, Julia's rep, Marcy Engleman, says everyone "is doing great."

And we're thrilled to hear that. Too many stars these days receive attention for dressing and acting like idiots (hi, Britney Spears) or posing nude at all costs (put on some clothing, Katie Price).

It's great to see a class act such as Roberts simply live a happy, normal life.

Eva Herzigova and her Italian boyfriend Gregorio Marsiaj have welcomed their first child, a healthy baby boy.

We hope they listen to Jaime Lee Curtis and avoid the parental mistakes Dina Lohan and others have made.

A spokeswoman from Storm Models confirms the baby was born in Paris on June 1. We know his name is George Marsiaj Herzig - but we don't know if this will be another case of Jayden James Federline and no photos will be available for months.

"The whole family [is] well, Eva is delighted, and they will all be leaving on a holiday together shortly," a Herzigova spokerperson said.

The Czech-born supermodel, 34, shot to fame in the "Hello Boys" Wonderbra ad campaign that literally stopped traffic back in 1994. One could surmise that Jennifer Love Hewitt almost owes her career to the sort of worldwide breast appreciation Herzigova helped usher in.

Last month, Eva attended the Cannes Film Festival where she revealed the sex of her baby to People magazine and said: "I am so excited. I cannot wait for motherhood."

Before meeting Marsiaj, a Turin businessman whom she has dated for several years, Herzigova was married to Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres for two years.

His uncle Rico and older brother Kip might not be too preoccupied with their mundane lives to notice, but at The Hollywood Gossip, well, this stuff is our mundane life.

Jon Heder, who rose to fame as the title character in Napoleon Dynamite, was proud to welcome his first child, with wife Kirsten this week.

Suri With Katie

The baby girl, Evan Jane Heder, is "safe and sound and healthy," says a rep for Heder, who did not reveal the baby's date of birth.

In March, at the Los Angeles premiere of Heder's comedy Blades of Glory, where he stars alongside Will Ferrell, told reporters that his wife, who was with him at the event, was due any second.

They announced last fall that they were expecting.

Heder, 29, met Kirsten when they were students at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. They announced in September that they were expecting their first child.

Jon Heder, who is from Salem, Ore., burst onto the scene playing the lovable oddball Napoleon Dynamite in the 2004 film. He also starred in Just Like Heaven, Bench Warmers and School for Scoundrels.

Congrats from all of us to John and Kirsten, who bears a resemblance to another new celebrity mom, Tobey Maguire's fiancee Jennifer Meyer.

Speaking of which, it's rare you see a celebrity baby born to married parents these days. There are just so many knocked up fiancees like Salma Hayek!

We wonder if Rosie O'Donnell will send flowers to the latest celebrity grandfather?

After all, Donald Trump Jr. and wife Vanessa welcomed their first child Saturday afternoon in New York City. This means that The Donald is now a grandpa.

Birther

Moreover, son Barron Trump is now an uncle to Kai Madison, the 6-lb. 14-oz. girl and latest member of the insanely rich clan.

"Everyone's great," Trump Jr. said in a phone call from the hospital. "Baby's great, Vanessa's great ��" and I'm getting used to the idea [of being a father]."

The name came from the baby's maternal grandfather, the younger Donald said. It's Danish and almost as pretty as Ruby Sweetheart.

When the couple first announced the pregnancy in November, Vanessa told People magazine that "everyone's very excited," although "if you mention the 'grandpa' word [to the elder Donald Trump], he might not be so excited."

That's to be expected.

Also to be expected? The plans Kevin Federline must have for Jayden James to get himself a piece of Kai Madison, along with the Trump riches.

Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown welcomed a baby girl early Tuesday.

"The baby is completely healthy with a good head of hair," a rep for Brown said in a statement. "Mother and baby are now resting. No name has been decided on as yet and she is purely known as Baby Brown."

Hey, that's a better name than most celebrity babies end up with.

Scary Spice, 31, was taken to Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., at around 5.30 Monday and the baby was born just after midnight Tuesday.

The new arrival - who weighed in at 5 lb., 4 oz. - joins 8-year-old sister Phoenix Chi, Brown's daughter with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar.

The paternity of the new baby, however, is in question.

Brown has said that her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Murphy - who shares a birthday with the infant and turned 46 Tuesday - is the father. But he has disputed that claim.

"I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test," Murphy said on a Dutch TV show (possibly the same one just frequented by Snoop Dogg) in December when asked about impending fatherhood.

"You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."

Brown later released a statement saying she was "upset and distressed" by Murphy's comments. In March, Murphy's new girlfriend, film producer Tracey Edmonds, told Chicago's Power 92 radio station of Murphy and Brown:

"Without me getting too deep into it, they had a quick relationship before I even got into that, before I got into a relationship with Eddie... So that's like their business that's going on. There'll be a paternity test and if it's his then he'll be responsible."

This paternity test battle comes just as Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern are embroiled in a similar fight over the rights to the late Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter Dannielynn. Only they both want to be the dad.

Regardless of what happens with Melanie Brown's situation, The Gossip would like to welcome another beautiful celebrity baby. We're sure former Spice Girl and fellow new mom Emma Bunton shares that sentiment.

Here's what newborn celebrity babies, such as Dannielynn Hope, have to look forward to:

Lots of time spent in bed while their parents get drunk downstairs.

Okay, that may not be entirely accurate, but Gwyneth Paltrow says she and her fellow famous moms often get together for what are probably the world's most stylish play dates.

"I have friends like Stella McCartney or Madonna, and very often our children get together to play," Paltrow tells Spanish Vogue. "Although usually we leave them in bed and stay to drink a glass of wine."

The actress and husband Chris Martin are parents to Apple, who turns 3 in May, and 11-month-old Moses. She also somehow supports Lindsay Lohan.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have Lourdes, 10, and Rocco, 6, and are in the process of adopting David Banda, 17 months; and McCartney and husband Alasdhair Willis have a son, Miller, 2, and a 3-month-old daughter, Bailey.

Paltrow took the last few years off of making movies to focus on raising her kids, and recently called being a housewife "amazing."

And she still has a sense of awe when it comes to her children. "When I look at my daughter's skin, it's the most beautiful and perfect in the world," she tells the magazine.

Older men may disagree, citing Antonella Barba as possessing the best skin on the planet - but we see where Paltrow is coming from.

We don't see, however, how underrated baby Kingston Rossdale got left off the play date list. Give Gwen Stefani a call, Gwyneth.

It's been quite the week for celebrity babies.

Yesterday, it was Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross cranking out two of them! Today, we're happy to report that Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip star Amanda Peet, 35, has given birth to a baby girl.

Alex Rodriguez, Cynthia Rodriguez and Kids

Sources say Peet went into labor on Tuesday, resulting in the debut of Frances Pen - named after Peet's mom, Penny.

Yeah, it's a little strange, this name. But it's no Thijs or Heaven Rain.

The actress and her screenwriter husband, David Benioff, 36, were married in September 2006, shortly after Peet announced she was preggers.

This is the first child for both. Next up on the celebrity baby watch - Aussie actress Naomi Watts, former Felicity star Keri Russell and TV's lovable, now-married Bachelorette, Trista Sutter.

Congrats to Amanda and all these expectant ladies.
