Actor/comedian Charlie Day, 35, from this summer’s Horrible Bosses is going to be a daddy. Day and his wife Mary Elizabeth Ellis, 32, who stars alongside Day as “The Waitress” on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, are expecting their first child in December.

Our “Petite Duckling” reversible double layer blanket would be perfect for baby on those cool winter nights.

“We’re five months along, and she’s feeling great. We’re excited.” he told PEOPLE Friday night at a party during San Diego’s Comic-Con. “We decided now is the time, and we were fortunate that it happened.”

Co-stars Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney, who became first-time parents to son Axel last September, have been generous with their parenting tips and “honestly, we’re gonna need it!” says Day with a laugh.

Shooting will be on hiatus at the due date. “It’s going to time out perfectly,” Day explains. “We live in L.A., [so] my East Coast family and her Southern family may have to come see us this Christmas.”


Take a walk to the pond with your baby swaddled in this cozy and generous reversible double layer 30×36 size carriage blanket. This blanket features ultra-soft white patterned baby print and solid tea green on reverse side for versatility. It’s finished with sweet ducky embroidery and white baby patterned border. A newborn’s favorite gift.

Kate Hudson, 32, had thought she was having a girl, but this past weekend she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! The actress and her fiancé, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, welcomed a “healthy baby boy” on Saturday, July 9 in Los Angeles. Hudson didn’t want to know the sex of her unborn baby, but had a feeling it was a girl!

Hudson has a 7 1/2-year-old son, Ryder Russell, with her ex-husband, Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson. This is Bellamy’s first child. So what is this little boo’s name? It has yet to be revealed…speaking of revealing, Le Top Baby‘s latest pre-fall collection just launched today on our e-boutique! We think the Le Top Baby “Woodland Friends” collection footed coverall would be too-cute for this handsome little boy.

Your little fawn will be snug and stylish in this blue woodland friends print cotton footed  coverall with asymmetrical wrap styling. Subdued autumn colors and mini fawn  embroidery on chest with coordinating forest friends on footies finish this sweet fall look. Side and underneath snaps for easy on and off.

David and Victoria Beckham are spending quiet time at home because they just welcomed a baby girl – Harper Seven Beckham. Our rabbitmoon NEW pre-fall “Magnolia” Collection would be perfect for this new little love – we think the supersoft cotton flower print jumpsuit would be blissful for her!

Made of heavenly soft cotton, this hand-illustrated magnolia flower print pink jumpsuit with puff sleeves, contrast dark chocolate peter-pan collar, and sweet mini side pockets drapes perfectly at the pleated yoke. Pleated wrist and leg cuffs offer a subtle bubble look. Back and underneath diaper snaps for easy dressing.

How did the parents of three boys –  Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8 1/2, and Cruz, 6 1/2 – ever arrive at the name Harper, let alone Seven? Harper is an old English name that Victoria has always loved, PEOPLE has learned, and seven is considered a very lucky spiritual number. In addition, Harper Seven was born Sunday morning in L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center weighing 7 lbs. (and 10 oz.) in the seventh hour in the seventh month – on the seventh day of the week. What more? As sports fans can’t help but also note, seven was David’s jersey number for Manchester United and the English national. Cheers to the newest member of the Beckham fam!

Paulo is wearing School of Fun and Chameleon Camouflage from LeTop's 2011 Spring Summer Collection.

We took our kids to Disneyland this summer for our family vacation. This was Paulo’s first visit and we didn’t know what to expect. Will he go crazy? Will he love it? Will WE hate it? Well… he LOVED it and we loved that he loved it!

He was in awe when he saw Mickey Mouse standing in front of him. He ran right up to him and gave him a hug. He went nuts when he saw Lightning McQueen right before his eyes. He wanted to climb up in the driver’s seat and take him for a spin. And the rides? A definite two thumbs up on ALL the rides! His favorite ride, I would say, was the Jungle Adventure Ride because of all the animals he encountered while on the boat trip. Although he also liked Autopia because he got to drive his own car with Daddy. He wasn’t a fan of the long lines. (Who is?) But this trooper made the best of it by hanging on the rails, climbing the walls and rolling around on the ground.

Disneyland… the Happiest Place on Earth!

Paulo is wearing Chameleon Camouflage from Le Top's 2011 Spring Summer Collection.

We were complaining last month that summer wasn’t here yet since it even rained in June. But now, summer arrived with a vengeance here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Time to play outside. But wait… It’s TOO HOT! It’s sweltering that playing outside is a challenge. For five minutes, Paulo dribbled his basketball, ran around a bit, then pushed his Tonka truck before we all called it quits and went back in the house. Then we decided to go to the movies to cool off! Phew!

If you’re planning to be outside, remember to:

  • drink lots of water to stay hydrated
  • put sunscreen on to protect your skin
  • wear a hat
  • take a rest preferably under a shady tree

1.    What was your inspiration/ behind opening your children’s clothing store – P. Cottontail & Company?
Sandra: I really did not have a single inspiration — being in the garment industry my entire career — and the kids business for a large part of that…it was a natural progression.  

2.    Tell us about any special events that you have planned at your store this coming summer and fun deals we can expect. Sandra: Our special events this summer?…On July 4th we have an old fashion hometown parade. We will be handing out flags to all of our kids. Also our BIG end of season sale will start in mid-July. Of course, do not forget THE PUMPKIN FESTIVAL in October. Please visit us early for all things pumpkin AND the best costumes ever.  

3.    What are this season’s latest trends for kid’s clothing? Tell us the 3 “do’s” and 3 “don’ts” in kid clothing style.
Sandra: Do’s and Don’ts…

  • Do go for all things comfy and soft — babies and kids both can develop sensory issues at an early age give them all the help you can.
  • Do go for the accessories — it makes the outfit — boys love hats and cool shoes, girls love purses just like mom.
  • Do go for lots of great dress up clothes, it’s not just for b-day parties, and not just for girls!
  • Don’t ever buy any garment that even LOOKS itchy — this is especially important in dressy dresses — also tags inside the garment — many
    of the moms ask us to remove them after they purchase the outfit because they bother the kids so much.
  • Don’t ever go for anything tight or restrictive — kids need to be kids.


4.    Tell us…before you “had kids or grandkids, what is one thing you swore you’d never…?” Please share!
Sandra: I never had anything I swore I would never do — I’m a firm believer in “never say never.” I have one daughter — one amazing daughter — and being in the apparel industry, she was exposed to all types of clothing and styles and is quite the diva.

5.    Describe the neighborhood of Half Moon Bay, California where your store is located. Did you grow up in the local area?
Sandra:
Half Moon Bay is a coast side town about 20 minutes south of San Francisco — the ocean is a big attraction for families — there are also tide pools at The Fitzgereld Marine Reserve where kids get a real hands-on experience.  

6.    What are your top 3 best selling beach gear items that you would suggest as the perfect “go-to” items for a family on vacation?
Sandra:
Top 3 items for beach gear — SUN SCREEN – a sun hat with a large brim and sunglasses – I’m very big on sun protection — start you kids early. 

7.    Tell us about a “special” moment that made your day working at your store.
Sandra: Hands down favorite moment in the store is when one of my favorite little girls came in, sat down on the floor, opened her piggy bank–dumped out all the pennies–and asked me if she had enough money to buy the horse outfit!! 

Le Top "Flutterbye Butterfly" Hooded Zip Front Coverup and Bikini

8.    What swimwear or cover-up piece from Le Top or rabbitmoon do you love from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection?
Sandra: My summer swimwear collection favorite piece…is the pink zip front cover-up from the Le Top “Flutterbye Butterfly” Collection – I also love the bikini-don’t forget the sun hat!
