My mind is blown. I cannot believe how many reality TV stars welcomed babies this year.
Snooki & JWoww star Jenni Farley gave birth to her first child in July. “She is here!” proud daddy Roger Mathews shared on Twitter. “Meilani Alexandra Mathews, 7 lbs, 13 ounces. Words can’t describe what looking into your child’s eyes can do to you. I’m humbled.”

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.

We’re slowly getting to know newbieClaudia Jordan on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Short version of this week’s revelations: she doesn’t obsess over her hair and clothes, she doesn’t know if she will ever have children, she doesn’t exchange ‘I Love You’ with her mother, and, most importantly, she doesn’t own a shady throwaway flip phone. Long version: Claudia offered more in her blog.
When asked if she thought Cynthia Bailey was being shady by taking her for a makeover, Claudia shared, “No, I didn’t think it was shady at all! I’m the first person to tell you I put very little effort into my hair and clothes. Half the time I’m just trying to get somewhere on time, and it’s just never been a priority to get overly dolled up. I have to be up at 5 am every morning for ONE of my jobs. I hit that snooze button more than a little bit trying to get an extra few minutes of sleep in before work. Then when I get to work sometimes we take photos with the guests and BUSTED! I look less than stellar and got caught out there! Or then I get a call that I have to be somewhere right after work. But my priority is getting to where I need to go.”
Kim Kardashian, who almost never smiles and always lacks a sparkle in her eyes, posted a rare picture of herself smiling on Twitter yesterday. Then she felt the need to point out 1) that she is smiling and 2) why that is such a rare occurrence. “See I do smile… even laugh on occasion,” she tweeted. “Not too often though because it causes wrinkles.”
Huh. I thought Kim was just too cool to smile since she married Kanye West. Or that he outlawed it, along with a colorful wardrobe for North and a tasteful wardrobe for Kim. Well, now that that is cleared up, check out pictures of the soulless ones wearing black and white and staring blankly into a camera, also known as the Kardashian Christmas party, below.
Teen Mom star Maci Bookout and boyfriend Taylor McKinney are expecting their first child together. The pregnancy and birth of Maci’s first child, Bentley, was filmed for 16 & Pregnant. And then Maci continued to share her story on Teen Mom. Bentley is six years old now and as adorable as ever.
Speaking to In Touch, Maci said this pregnancy came as a HUGE shock. Huh. I’d be more shocked if she said she finished her classes at Chattanooga State Community College or paid her debt to the IRS, but I digress. Maci explained that she suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), adding, “I didn’t think that another pregnancy was possible.” Oops. Maci is due in June.
