For a long time running, it seemed People had a monopoly on introductory celebaby photos. Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, and the Jolie-Pitts all turned to the well-established magazine to show off their newest family members. However, today, many celebs are turning to competitors who are doling out generous offerings to new parents. Others are releasing their own photos — either on their own or through photo agencies — to bypass the whole magazine scenario. See how your favorite Tinseltown parents — Malin Akerman being the most recent — debuted their little ones, and tell us how you think the newest Hollywood babies will be introduced to us!
If you're a romantic-comedy lover with a soft spot for wedding movies, then trust me — you've already seen The Big Wedding. The premise itself probably sounds familiar: when a family comes together for a wedding, hijinks ensue, people don't get along, and secrets are revealed. Even most of the cast members have played similar roles before. Diane Keaton and Robert De Niro play the groom's parents, Katherine Heigl is the bitter sister, and Amanda Seyfried plays the bride. And the unoriginality doesn't stop there! If you're tempted to watch The Big Wedding, then let me advise you that you can get the same fix by watching the movies below. Their accomplishment: they each tackled elements of The Big Wedding first — but better.
- It's Complicated: In Nancy Meyers's comedy It's Complicated, the romance between the divorced couple played by Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin feels organic and realistic. That's not the case for Keaton and De Niro's characters in Ellie and Don, the divorced parents of groom Alejandro (Ben Barnes) in The Big Wedding. Oh, it is complicated for them — despite the fact that they haven't been married for over 10 years, sparks still fly between them during the wedding weekend — even though he's already moved on with someone else. When Ellie and Don move closer to a reconnection, it's icky and doesn't make sense for their characters.
- Wedding Crashers: The Big Wedding is rated R, so there's a healthy dose of raunchy humor, but there's nothing you haven't seen before, especially if you've seen Wedding Crashers. There is even one scene that is straight out of the Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn classic. For frisky family members and R-rated wedding jokes, just watch Wedding Crashers.
Get the rest of the list after the jump.
Katherine Heigl showed off her fit physique in two bikinis to hit the beach in Cabo earlier this week. She was joined by her sister, Meg Heigl, for the getaway south of the border, where the sisters spent their Sunday relaxing in the sun, and then reemerged for a refreshing dip in the water together on Monday. Katherine shared her laid-back plans for her getaway on her Twitter account, saying, "Enjoying a girls' weekend in Mexico! Sun, sea, and margaritas!" Katherine's logging a bit of rest and relaxation before her schedule picks up with the release of her film The Big Wedding later this month.

Katherine Heigl and family were all smiles arriving at LAX yesterday. Katherine, mother Nancy, husband Josh Kelley, and youngest daughter Adalaide were met by Katherine's sister, Meg, who happily escorted them to the car before heading home. It's been a relaxing Summer for Katherine and Josh, who spent most of it away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. The family of four temporarily relocated to Utah, where Josh and Katherine tied the knot in 2007, and spent their days fishing, horseback riding, and enjoying family barbecues.
Josh snapped lots of photos during their getaway, including adorable pics of eldest daughter Naleigh snuggled with her new little sis. Soon it will be back to work for both Josh and Katherine. She's starring in The Big Wedding, due out Oct. 26, and in addition to working on new music, he's playing a few shows later this month.
There's a good chance the trailer for The Big Wedding will feel very familiar to you, because it features a ton of stars in roles we've seen them play before. Amanda Seyfried as a bride-to-be? Check. Robin Williams as a wedding officiant? Check. Diane Keaton as the mother of the bride? Check. The list goes on, as the huge cast also includes the likes of Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, and Katherine Heigl, to name a few. The ensemble is drawn together in the name of Alejandro (Ben Barnes), who wants to invite his birth mother to his wedding to Missy (Seyfried). Ready for the wacky twist? He wants his adoptive parents (Keaton and De Niro) to act like they're still together because his birth mother doesn't believe in divorce.
Though the trailer is filled with clichés (think awkward sexual scenarios, uptempo classic songs, and kids who seem to be more mature than their parents), it's still kind of charming. Maybe it's because the preview reminds me of It's Complicated, which is a movie that I love despite its predictability, or that I just resist the cast. The film hits theaters on Oct. 26, but watch the trailer when you read more
