Chris Brown

Wanted a Baby for Years ...

With Karrueche!

3/6/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0305_chris_brown_karrueche-tran_baby_tmz_composite_2Chris Brown's been jonesin' to be a daddy for a long time, and tried to get Karrueche Tran to be the baby mama -- but before there was a bun in the oven, she wanted a ring on her hand.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Chris and Karrueche had the baby talk frequently for at least the last 2 years -- and she was down to have a tiny CB ... IF he would make her an honest woman.

We're told KT feels strongly about marriage before kids, and stood her ground with Chris. Although he stepped up with a couple of diamonds last Christmas -- he couldn't close the deal ... since they weren't engagement rings. 

Karrueche was also worried about derailing her budding acting career.

Even though she wasn't ready yet ...we're told Karrueche still thought she and Chris would have kids together in the future. As one source put it, she's "devastated he did this" with a side chick.

Like the lady said ... "One can only take so much."

Chris Brown

My Baby is Royalty!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0304-chris-brown-fun-art-getty-tmz-01Chris Brown's baby girl answers to Royalty!

We've learned Nia named the kid Royalty. What we don't know ... whether she consulted Chris before inking the birth certificate.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris and Nia got it on summer of 2013 and she gave birth 9 months ago. As we reported, Karrueche was blindsided ... she had no idea until minutes before TMZ posted the story Tuesday afternoon.

As for Chris' involvement ... we're told he calls Nia regularly and now says he wants to openly participate in raising the baby. Nia and Royalty live in Texas, and Chris says he'll gladly fly there regularly to parent her.

Chris Dropped Baby Bomb On Me ...

I Had No Clue

EXCLUSIVE

0303_chris_brown_karrueche_TMZ-2

Karrueche Tran was in the dark ... blindsided by Chris Brown's baby news just moments before TMZ broke the story. 

We're told Tran had absolutely no idea her boyfriend was a daddy -- much less a daddy with a baby mama with whom SHE partied.  

0304-nia-karrueche-INSTAGRAM-01Our sources say Karrueche and Brown had a blowout fight a week ago and weren't speaking, but he tried calling her after the story broke ... she did not pick up.  

DNA tests performed in the last week show conclusively ... Brown is the father of a 9-month-old baby with a former model named Nia. We're told he and Nia aren't romantic but they get along fine, and Chris has made some sort of financial arrangement with her.  

As for Karrueche ... we're told she's actually relieved, because it now gives her a clean, permanent out. 

Oh, baby.

Exclusive Details

0306-karrueche-nia-instagramChris Brown had his cake and banged it too -- because months before he knocked up his baby mama ... he was partying with her AND Karrueche Tran at the same time.

Karrueche, who was Chris' gf at the time, actually had her arm around Nia in a photo they took -- with Christina Milian too -- during a Las Vegas party back in May 2013. Chris was also there.

0304-SUB-nia-karruche-chris-instagram-01Nia got pregnant with Chris' baby later that summer. We're guessing the ladies won't be having a reunion anytime soon.

We've also learned Nia was very popular on the video vixen scene ... appearing in several music videos, including a half-naked role in Phill Wade's "Dreams of You" video.

His Baby's Got ...

A Model Mother

0304_chris_brown_baby_mama_nia_amey_launch_2If nothing else ... Chris Brown was swimming in the right end of the gene pool when he knocked up his baby mama -- as evidenced by these pics.

As we told you ... the mother's name is Nia -- a 31-year-old from Texas who used to do some modeling, and she also appeared in music videos. We're guessing that's how she first hooked up with Chris years ago.

Check out the photo gallery of her from back in the day. Chris' baby is blessed.

Chris Brown is the proud father of a 9-month-old baby girl ... TMZ has learned.

The baby's mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia -- who we're told has known Chris for several years. 

Sources connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms -- however they're not together romantically. We're told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.

It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place -- and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support.

One thing's for sure ... baby girl looks a lot like daddy.

Scooter Braun's Kid

Little JB

2/12/2015 3:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212-scooter-braun-launch-02Scooter Braun paid homage to Justin Bieber by giving his brand new kid the Biebs' initials.

TMZ has obtained the birth certificate for Jagger Joseph Braun … it can't be a coincidence that the kid's initials are JB and how could it be that Jagger is anything but Mick?  In fact, the inspiration was indeed Mr. Rolling Stone himself.

The birth certificate doesn’t give the height and weight, but we are told that the baby is doing great and so is Scooter’s very hot wife, Yael Cohen.

As we reported Justin was one of the first people to visit the kid at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was born.

Wladimir Klitschko

Childbirth Is Tougher Than Any Fighter

'Hayden Is a Hero'

EXCLUSIVE

Wladimirm-Klitschko_launch_v3Tyson ... Ali ... Rocky -- they've all got NOTHING on Hayden Panettiere ... or any other woman who's ever had to give birth ... so says Hayden's boxing superstar baby daddy Wladimir Klitschko.

Wlad says Hayden's pain tolerance must be through the roof in order for her to have pushed out their giant baby 2 months ago ... saying he now believes women are WAY tougher than any boxer. 

"Every woman is a hero."

Hayden might be more of a hero than most ... considering their daughter Kaya was 7 lbs., 14 oz. and damn near 2 feet tall. Hayden's only 5 feet tall.

Ludacris' Baby Mama

He Made Me Play

Let's Make an Pregnancy Deal

1/28/2015 6:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
012715_tamika_fuller_launch_v4
Ludacris' baby mama testified in court that it's ridiculously ludicrous he's fighting for full custody of their daughter, because he desperately wanted her to have an abortion to the point he even bribed her.

Tamika Fuller said when Luda found out she was pregnant he cried, but they weren't tears of joy. He said it would ruin his life and he then urged her to terminate the pregnancy. 

According to Tamika, Luda initially offered her $10K and a house if she lost the baby.   

As TMZ first reported, Fuller believes Luda's quicky marriage to Eudoxie was just a transparent ploy to show the  judge he has a more stable home than her. 0103_whos_daddy_footer

Ludacris

Baby Mama Says Marriage is a

Cheap Trick to Win Custody

1/8/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Ludacris Child CustodyLudacris' hastily arranged marriage is a cheap trick in his attempt to gain full custody of his daughter ... so says a source close to his baby mama.

We're told Luda's baby mama, Tamika Fuller, thinks Luda wants to show the judge in their custody fight that he now has a stable, loving household ... more conducive to child-rearing than the home of single mom Tamika. She fears a Georgia judge could actually buy what Luda's selling.

As we reported ... Luda abruptly proposed to GF Eudoxie during the XMAS holidays and married her the very same day. Tamika thinks it was all just a ploy.

Luda is gunning to win full custody of their 1-year-old daughter Cai. He claims he's a better parent and has the means to provide her with a better life.

Tamika thinks it's a crass ploy to avoid paying $7,000 a month in child support. 

The courtroom fireworks begin later this month.

Hayden Panettiere

Childbirth Ruined Parts of Me

12/23/2014 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
1223-hayden-panettier-pregnant-bikini-splash-01Hayden Panettiere can't escape the laws of physics -- birthing Wladimir Klitschko's baby did some permanent damage to her bod.

Hayden copped to the ordeal of bringing Kaya Evdokia into this world with People ... saying, "I'm limping around. I'm still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it's changed it."

As for recovery ... she added, "I know some things will never be the same again."

Sounds about right -- Kaya was 7 lbs., 14 oz. and damn near 2 feet tall. Hayden's only 5 feet tall.

Like we said ... physics.

Blake Lively doesn't need a sexy black dress for slimming effect -- 'cause even with a big ole bun in her oven ... she's a total smoke show.

The ex "Gossip Girl" flaunted her belly at a L'Oreal event in NYC last night ... creating a dilemma for all those fans who drooled over her bod long before Ryan Reynolds knocked her up about 5-6 months ago.

The issue? You want to respect the miracle of motherhood and childbirth and blah, blah, blah -- but then this happens. Damn.

It's got to be Jennifer Aniston's worst nightmare ... another Angelina Jolie may be walking the face of the earth soon, because someone's in the market for an Angelina egg donor.

The UCLA Daily Bruin ran a classified ad Friday seeking an egg donor who looks like Brad Pitt's newly-minted wife. 
1126-angelina-jolie-sperm-donor-SUB-AD-01
The company that placed the ad -- Beverly Hills Egg Donation -- presumably has a client who wants their kid to be an outlier.

The ad is specific ... white, tall, slender, the right cheekbones and forehead. Anyone with the right stuff can make $30K for 2 cycles.

Period.
