Weekend Open Thread

In case you missed it, Gwen Stefani gave birth to a boy yesterday afternoon. Her baby, Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, weighed 7.5 pounds.

I am amazed at the way Stefani announced her pregnancy at a concert:

Stefani confirmed her pregnancy onstage during the final stop of her solo tour in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in mid-December…

“I want you to sing so loud that the baby hears it,” the 36-year-old singer told the crowd, later patting her famous-but-expanding midsection.

I remember reading in What to Expect When You’re Expecting that going to rock concerts and such while pregnant was bad because of the vibrations. Am I just paranoid or was Stefani lucky?
