Happy Birthday, Free Britney!

For THG staff member Free Britney, it's already been quite a year.

He welcomed his first child into the world in February, a baby boy who rivals Mason Dash and Hank Baskett IV for Cutest Newborn of 2010, but that hasn't stopped him from pumping out content at a record rate.

Happy Birthday, Octomom!

Nadya Denise Doud-Suleman Gutierrez, better known as just Nadya Suleman, or just the drain on society we call Octomom, is 35 today. Happy birthday, we guess!

The California lady gave birth to octuplets in January 2009, only the second full set to be born alive in the United States. Oh, and she had six children prior to that.

What do you get the woman that has already received the greatest gift she could ever ask for, endless media attention from a contrived marriage?

Happy Birthday, Kris Allen!

Adam Lambert may receive more attention, but let's not forget:

Kris Allen won the eighth season of American Idol. The singer hasn't gone on to huge success, though fans can take solace in this fact: he isn't Taylor Hicks, either. Expect Allen to stick around the music scene for years to come.
