Bingham Hawn Bellamy. That’s a good, strong name, isn’t it? I mean, it’s no Bear Blu or Harper Seven, but it’ll do. Plus, the loving parents, Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy, are planning on calling him “Bing” for short. And if that’s not the most adorable thing you’ve heard all day, well … I guess you must have heard about a kitten riding a friendly baby bear or something. And I’m jealous.
To add to the already adorable name, it turns out that it’s a family name. On both sides, even! Here’s Matthew’s explanatory Tweet:
“For those wondering, Bingham is my mum’s maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt’s dad. Family connections all round!”

Yesterday, Kate Hudson gave birth to a healthy little baby boy. No word yet on the name, but for now I’m sure we can get by with imagining the baby’s father and Kate’s fiance, Matthew Bellamy of Muse, singing the kid some lullabyes. Doesn’t that sound nice?
You know what sounds nicer? This morning, Victoria Beckham gave birth to her little girl! Girlfriend is healthy, weighing in at seven pounds and ten ounces – the baby, not Victoria, LOL! – and, considering her parents, I’m sure she’s the most darling thing. And of course, there’s no name yet, but I don’t think that really matters because I’m calling the girl Santa any time I need to refer to her.

Have any of you seen Something Borrowed yet? I have not, but a friend of mine went to see it yesterday and he called me after and said, “Kate Hudson, at some point in every single scene, says, ‘Woo!’ and does a crazy little dance. She’s literally setting back women 37 years every single time she opens her mouth.”
So I found that to be pretty annoying. Not just because he’d spoiled part of the movie for me, either. It’s a bummer that someone who’s career showed so much promise when she first broke out has thrown herself face first into Hollywood’s RomCom Machine. She’s been in it for a minute now, obviously. This is nothing new, but like, between that and her seemingly maneater-ish tendencies, I’m just done with her. And she made Owen Wilson almost kill himself. We can’t forget that.
But I can’t be entirely mean to a pregnant woman. I can’t. So I’ll just show you these photos of her walking around London with her fiance, Muse front man Matt Bellamy, yesterday and say that she looks like she’s having a real nice time for herself despite the fact that she’s recites tired-ass lines for a living and she’s totally glowing or whatever.

Amazing how things like that sometimes turn out, right? My dad always said some pretty random things like ‘When you’re sick, you don’t feel good,’ and ‘Wet birds don’t fart at night’ (that one I never understood), so I guess, yeah, it would make sense that if Matty proposed to Kate and she said yes, that they’d be engaged.
Kate appeared on The Today Show and confirmed to Matt Lauer that Bellamy had popped the question last week, and Kate happily obliged. The only thing I’m MORE shocked about than the idea that these two are going to get hitched is the fact that Kate kept it to herself and didn’t go sprinting to the media for an ENTIRE SEVEN DAYS.
I don’t know. I just can’t wrap by head around how crazy all of this is. Though they’ve been dating a whole year, it seems like it all went down so fast. I mean, even Delilah would be shaking her head in disbelief.

If you thought that Kate Hudson was this sparkling, spotless little golden girl of a tinkling bell that JUST HAPPENED to get pregnant by ANOTHER frontman of ANOTHER popular band, you were dead wrong, man.
Kate, in a recent interview with InStyle, makes no bones about hooking her latest victim, Matthew Bellamy of Muse – she practically admits to trapping him with her extra-fertile eggs, and says that “we” were “tempting fate,” and “it worked.” (And if by “we” she means “I,” “me,” or even flat-out “Kate Hudson,” then yes, she’s correct.)
On the way that the couple met:
“[I was] watching Radiohead’s Thom Yorke with a guy I knew from high school, who introduced me to Matthew. We realized we had met a few years earlier, in Australia. Then I got distracted and said, ‘I’ve got to find my friends; I don’t know where they went.’ He just looked at me and said, ‘Come on, I’ll take care of you.’ That’s when I went, ‘Wait a minute, who are you?’ “
On what she likes best about “Matthew”:
“Matthew was polite and immediately protective, which for somebody like me who’s all over the place – one minute I’m over here and the next I’m over there – is important.” Plus, she adds, “He is just an amazing person. … In the beginning I felt like, okay, this is going to be heavy. Am I prepared for this? Because it had been a while, and I wasn’t looking for that, but I just couldn’t stay away. I wanted to talk to him and be with him all the time. On our first dates we would take long walks and talk the entire day.”
And of course, on the way that their child was conceived:
“Well, it wasn’t like we didn’t know what we were doing. There were no ovulation kits involved. We were tempting fate, and it worked … I didn’t think I was going to have another kid until I was maybe 33 – that was in the back of my mind before I met Matthew. But we were so in love when it happened, it was just so exciting for both of us.”
Yes, very exciting and I’m glad Kate’s happy this year with receiving Matt’s, I’m sorry, Matthew’s special seeds of whatever and all, but incidentally – is she talking about the very Thom Yorke who cheekily rejected Kate herself? Because I don’t know many Thom Yorkes who also happen to be musicians. Way to avoid wasting any time whatsoever there, girl!

You know, I know we give Kate Hudson a lot of flak here about being an overgrown, attention-seeking, serial-dating drama queen that’s stuck at the perpetual age of thirteen, but guys? She’s looking pretty good in her most recent pregnancy photos.
Hudson was caught vacationing with her latest victim, Matthew Bellamy of Muse, and her son (who is by another rock musician, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes) in the Caribbean this past weekend, soaking up the sun’s rays and as much attention from both men as she could get.
Lookin’ alright, Kate!
