Kid-Dish: Madonna Celebrates Son Rocco’s Bar Mitzvah

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

This is purely speculation, but I do not believe she wore this to the ceremony.


– Mazel Tov, Rocco! This weekend, Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie joined together to celebrate their son Rocco’s bar mitzvah at the Kabbalah Centre in New York City, where Madge frequents. My only question is did his bar mitzvah have a theme, and is there any possible way they invited Shaun Sperling to perform his famous bar mitzvah dance? (Us Weekly)

– Last week we shared the good news that Busy Philipps welcomed her second child, a healthy baby girl. This week we share the (you decide if it’s good) news that she’s named the baby Cricket Pearl. That means her daughters are named Birdie and Cricket. But before you make fun, Philipps herself has already beat you to it when she Tweeted, “It’s weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be therapy for LOTS of reasons, I’m sure.” (CBS)

– Top Chef: Just Desserts host Gail Simmons has announced she’s pregnant with her first child, which means it’s time for me to announce that I am already insanely jealous of that fetus because just think about all that access to desserts. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Isla Fisher went shopping with her daughters Olive, 5, and Elula, 2. Elula was rocking some Hello Kitty slippers because obviously she is awesome. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)
