The baby announcement was given exclusively to People.

Salma Hayek was also recently discussing her beautiful baby daughter revealed that she was hoping for a boy at first. Worrying that mothers and daughters always have conflict between them but now is happy that she had a girl. “…I’m in a state of innocence where I love everything she does. If she does a poop and I have to change the diaper, I even love that moment!”

She also stated that she doesn’t really feel a need for marriage, though some people need a commitment her and Francois-Henri Pinault might just throw a huge party instead to celebrate their family.

Billionaires Know How To Throw A Party

The Billionaire’s Club

Jerry & Rebecca

Salma Hayek is truly living a blessed life. Just 4 months after giving birth she’s already back in top notch shape and showing off her figure. Even better a recent poll from In Touch magazinevoted Salma and billionaire fiancé Francois Henri-Pinault the richest couple in Hollywood, by far.

Salma is the executive producer of Ugly Betty, owns her own film production company and has starred in high profile blockbusters such as Desperados and Dogma. But Henri the chairman of the luxury goods firm that owns Gucci and Puma (among others) is worth 7 Billion! Wow. I’d be happy with just one billion; in fact I would be satisfied with one tenth of one percent of one billion dollars!

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell are also rubbing elbows with billionaires. They will be partying with Sheldon Adelson, the guy who tops Forbes list as the worlds third richest man. From January 17 till 19 he’s celebrating the opening of his new property, Palazzo Las Vegas. Diana Ross and Seal are booked as performers. Flynet also has some cute pictures of the couple just being normal while out on the town.

Salma + Beard = Sexy?

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

New mom Salma helps other babies

While everyone from Ugly Betty seems to be keeping pretty quiet since this strike Salma Hayek has signed on for a new movie role. In Cirque Du Freak Salma will actually play a bearded lady. If she can make a unibrow sexy (Frida) then she may be the only woman I know who can actually be a sex symbol with a beard. The movie is a horror film about vampires and I don’t know much more at this point.

But Salma is not just making movies she is also using motherhood to improve the lives of others. Salma has signed on a spokesperson for the “One Pack = One Vaccine” program campaign by Pampers. In partnership with UNICEF it will provide free tetanus shot vaccines for babies (and mothers) in Africa and Asia.

Applause to Salma for supporting such a wonderful cause. Tetanus is a nervous system disease that is completly preventable with vaccines. Globally a million people a year die from the disease with half of the deaths from newborns. Salma is also set to participate in a Gucci event that will raise funds for UNICEF.

Billionaire Baby on Board

Thursday, November 29th, 2007


Valentina joins the billionaire babies club!

The newest addition to the billionaire babies club can finally be seen up close and personal! Salma Hayek shows off her beautiful baby girl, the two month old Valentina Paloma in a photo taken by a top photographer from her publicity agency. Isn’t she just adorable? The “official” photo probably made quite a few celebrity magazines sad. People especially, which lately has been getting all the exclusive shots of new celebrity babies (and paying for them with insane amounts of money.) Salma looks happy and already dropping off the baby weight to get back her famous curves.

The father of course is Salma’s fiancee Francois-Henri Pinault billionaire CEO of PPR the luxury goods firm that owns Gucci. (Who Salma may or may not already be married too!) Salma will also participate in a Gucci event next year where Madonna will be the musical guest. As Gucci opens its largest shop in the world on New York’s Fifth Avenue, funds for Raising Malawi and UNICEF will be raised at the event to support underprivileged children. The new mom also has several movies to film next year and let’s not forget more Ugly Betty to work on as executive producer!

Curves are Back!

Monday, July 16th, 2007


I know a lot of us feared that with the anorexic stick figure crop of young and dumb Hollywood ladies out now that everyone thought sexy meant skinny. It turns out the sexiest women in Hollywood is none other than Salma Hayek! In a poll done by E-Poll Market Research Salma Hayek topped the list and was voted “sexy” by 65% of the population.

An overwhelming number considering that the average celebrity only scored 15%. Other curvy stars such as Carmen Electra and Beyonce also made the top 5. But topping one list isn’t enough for Salma Hayek she also placed third on a poll by In Touch Weekly Magazine for fabulous 40-something. The 40 year old Salma came in behind first place HalleBerry and second place Daisy Fuentes.

Bizzaro Salma Hayek news

Friday, April 20th, 2007

Will Salma Hayek do her part for race relations?

In the weirdest Salma Hayek news I have ever come across Oscar winning Rap duo Three 6 Mafia have professed their love for Ugly Betty actress and producer Salma Hayek. DJ Paul and Juicy J have penned an open love letter to King Magazine asking both Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz to move to Memphis, Tennessee to be their partners and do their part to increase race relations by having kids with them.

The platinum selling rap group is best remembered for receiving an Academy Award for best original song for “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from the soundtrack to Hustle & Flow at the 78th Annual Academy Awards.

Friday, April 13th, 2007

What can I say folks, Salma Hayek breaths and its news. What’s new in Salmavision you ask? Read on to see how she’s changing her own life and the life’s of other women.

Apparently while filming Frida(released in 2002) Salma Hayek started smoking, but thankfully when she found out she was pregnant she was able to kick the habit.

Salma Hayek has also joined the Marie Claire crusade to wipe out domestic violence in the next 10 years! I don’t know if it can be done but I applaud Marie Claire and Salma Hayek for making the effort.
