Selma Blair and boyfriend Jason Bleick welcomed son Arthur Saint on July 25 and the new mom faced an unforeseen side effect: She started losing her hair! “This is so not glamorous, but it’s true. Why do actresses never talk about that?” Blair told People. “It just started falling out at the three-month mark. And I’m not a girl who likes extensions, so Selma’s going to be bald!”

Tina Fey and husband Jeff Richmond welcomed Penelope Athena on Aug. 10. Fey told Us that older sibling Alice “is an amazing big sister.” As she wrote in her book, “Bossypants,” “I thought that raising an only child would be the norm in Manhattan, but my daughter is the only child in her class without a sibling. Most kids have at least two. Who will be my daughter’s family when my husband and I are dead from stress-induced cankers? She must have a sibling.”

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren welcomed daughter, Haven Garner, 7 lbs, on Aug. 13.  “Big sister Honor couldn’t be more excited,” Alba wrote on her Facebook page. She told Latina magazine that pregnancy was easier the second time around: “With Honor, I was constantly like, “˜Is she moving? Is her heart beating?’ I’d worry about everything and with this baby; I don’t have the same anxieties.” As for her cravings, she said, “I don’t deprive myself of anything. I could always eat watermelon. With Honor I loved fruit, too. You still eat cheeseburgers and pickles.”

Alyssa Milano and David Bugliari welcomed son Milo Thomas, 7 lbs, on Aug. 31. “I’ve had a lovely pregnancy. He’s been a pleasure to carry,” the actress told People before giving birth. She said she wanted to wait until meeting the baby to choose a name so that it would fit, but one thing was certain: “We’ll go with a slightly Italian name, so that it goes with Bugliari.”

January Jones gave birth to Xander Dane Jones on Sep. 13. She hasn’t named the father or spoken about her new son, but during her pregnancy, was spotted taking yoga classes and indulging in ice cream.

Ana Ortiz and Noah Lebenzon welcomed son Rafael 7 lbs, 7 oz, on Sep. 24. As she told Latina magazine, they wanted a name that would honor their heritage: “It has to be Spanish, but something non-speakers can pronounce without mauling.”

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott welcomed daughter Hattie on Oct. 10, who arrived six days before the actress’ scheduled C-section. Spelling said, “People always think the first one was the hardest. But I’m like, ‘No the first one was easy for me because I could lay around all day. I didn’t have two little ones to take care of. This is the hardest one because I’m always going with the kids.” She said she ate “a lot of avocados” and “a lot of fruit,” but added, “I can’t wait to have sushi again.”
