9Keisha Castle-Hughes Pops Out That Kiddo


Keisha Castle-Hughes, the Oscar-nominated star of Whale Rider, made waves last year when she announced that she was pregnant at the age of 16, by her boyfriend of three years, who was 19 at the time. Castle-Hughes gave birth to Felicity-Amore in New Zealand on Wednesday. Both mother and baby are doing well.

Castle-Hughes talked recently about the controversy surrounding her young pregnancy in an interview with Television New Zealand. “I felt like I had to hide,” she said. “I felt like it was bad for me to be happy about it.”

The young actress also made quite a splash at age 13, when she was the youngest person ever nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her role in 2002′s Whale Rider. Dakota Fanning, darling, you’re slacking. You need an Oscar nod and a boyfriend stat.

    It’s too bad there was even a controversy. Young moms are and can be wonderful–not all act like Britney Spears– I’ve no doubt Keisha will be a wonderful mom.
