STYLE TIP:  Go with a spiderweb-themed outfit because, hey, the kids love watching Spider-Man!  And reading Charlotte’s Web!  And freaking out their parents with fake spiders!

First Pictures of Charlize Theron’s Baby Boy Are Making My Ovaries Dance

"What the heck is going on here?" wonders Jackson

Stop staring at me with that adorably perplexed look, Jackson Theron!  My son is nearing his one-year birthday, a milestone that has been known to make my ovaries do the salsa in the past, so the last thing I need is you giving me a case of the babies, too.  Seriously.  And take that preppy baby cardigan off while you’re at it.  I mean it; it’s just more cuteness than I can bear.

So glad I can dish about the latest celebrity family gossip here because the cats are totally sick of hearing about Jennifer Aniston’s “baby bump.” (Her official bump status this week:  “suspicious looking“; seriously, not a week goes by without a mention of her “bump” in the tabloids.  Amazing)
