Apart from a brief fascination with Go Fug Yourself and the de rigeuer doctor's office perusal of People, I'm just not that compelled by celeb gossip, whether it's online or in print. Sometime in the last year, though, someone sent me a link to the Celebrity Baby Blog, which is like an entire blogful of Us Weekly's "Just Like Us!" section with content limited solely to celebrity reproduction and offspring. Accompanying photos of celebs walking down the street with their Bugaboo-encased tots are helpful descriptions of, and links to, the stroller brand, the tot's outfit, the stroller bag, etc. It's all harmless enough, and the site's definition of "celebrity" is quite broad.
No, what's really noteworthy about CBB is how gosh-darn nice it all is. Bloggers and commenters alike seem to be genuinely happy for, say, Halle Berry and her brand-new baby girl (name not yet made public), or that American Idol has-been Bo Bice's wife is expecting their second child. In an era of extreme celeb schadenfreude, that's kind of refreshing.
