Kimberly Stewart gave birth to Benicio del Toro’s daughter


It was back in April that we heard about Kimberly Stewart’s pregnancy. We heard about it from Benicio del Toro’s rep, because Benicio was/is the baby-daddy. Most people assumed that Benicio and Kimberly must have only happened for one night, or perhaps even a brief relationship, which resulted in an unplanned pregnancy (and Benicio wasn’t happy about it). Personally, I was surprised by how little Kimberly was seen during her pregnancy, and by the fact that she didn’t issue one statement about the whole deal. She’s still not, even now that she’s given birth to a baby girl – once again, it’s Benicio’s rep who is confirming the news:

It’s a girl! Kimberly Stewart gave birth to a baby girl Sunday in L.A. This is the first child for the 31-year-old actress, model and daughter of legendary rocker Rod Stewart. Oscar-winner Benicio del Toro’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly in April that he was the father.

“Benicio is the father and very supportive,” the 44-year-old actor’s rep told Us. “Although [he and Kimberly] are not a couple, they are looking forward to the arrival of the baby.”

A source tells Us that Rod, 66, and his current wife Penny Lancaster-Stewart were at the hospital during Kimberly’s delivery. Alana Collins, who is Kimberly’s mother and Rod’s first wife, was also present.

The baby — who has yet to be named — was 22 inches long and weighed 8 lbs 9 oz.

I find it weird when new (celebrity) parents announce how long the baby is. Is that something people really want to know? The length? Anyway, Kimberly actually gave birth on her 32nd birthday (she and her daughter are Leos). This is Rod Stewart’s first grandchild, and I’m sure the as-yet-unnamed little girl will be playing with her baby half-uncle, Aiden (Rod and Penny Lancaster’s son, born in February). Kimberly is still living on her dad’s property too – so even though Benicio is probably paying out, Kimberly is still living in lap of luxury on her dad’s dime.

  3. Launicaangelina says:

    Already! And January Jones is still pregnant?!

  4. Jenn says:

    Maybe this will actually make her grow up or something?

  5. mamaT says:

    yes, length is a standard part of the information given when a baby is born.

  6. Bite me says:

    8 pounds, that’s a really good weight … Congrats to the mom and dad

  7. Eve says:

    @ Launicaangelina:

    Right? It feels like she got pregnant just a few months ago whereas Jones has been pregnant forever! LOL!

  8. heb says:

    I hate how they say Rod’s “current” wife, geez. US Weekly–Give the woman a little respect and call her HIS WIFE

  9. dorothy says:

    32 and still living off her dad. Grow up already.

  10. poopie says:

    ewwwww.. him as the baby daddy? does the baby have alot of facial hair ??? just kidding..

  11. k says:

    She’s an actress?

  12. normades says:

    Kimberly is an “actress and model”?

  13. weeble says:

    Glad she had a healthy baby.

  14. Rubenesque says:

    Most people do announce the length at birth, I guess it tells you a little about what the baby looked like. 22 inches is on the long side for a baby. Average is 19-21 inches. So her’s was a little over 8 1/2 lbs & long- that’s a good-sized full term baby without being crazy huge or super pudgy. To contrast- my youngest was 10 days late so he had extra time to hang out in there & gain weight. He ended up being 9 lbs 9oz but only 19 1/2 inches long. He was nearly round & had rolls on his rolls- his Dad nicknamed him “Bowling Ball.”

    Dear Benicio,

    that is a dealbreaker for me. we are through. getting with that professional celebutard definitely turned me off, I don’t care how drunk or drugged out you were. best of luck to your poor child.

  16. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Wow! 22 inches is quite long. My boys were 20 and 20.5. Kim appears to be tall with a long torso, so maybe it allowed the baby to stetch out and grow lengthwise.

  17. filthycute says:

    I always knew Benicio was trash.

  18. Jen says:

    I don’t know what would be worse…inheriting her dad’s looks or her mom’s. Poor baby is screwed either way. Hopefully she’ll resemble some ancester from wayyyyy back.

    On a side note, even pregnancy couldn’t give Kimberly some boobs.

  19. Isa says:

    I don’t know why celebrities would be any different but we always announce our weight and lenght for babies. That baby was very long! And a good weight too! It does seem like she hasn’t been pregnant long but judging from the baby’s stats she was probably full term or even late?
    I can’t believe January Jones is still pregnant. I guess it just seems like forever since she hasn’t been hiding and gets a lot more attention.
    Tomorrow is my big day! I’ll be having a c-section. 🙁 But I get to meet my little boy! Yay!

  20. the original bellaluna says:

    Congrats to her. She’s lucky it’s a girl – most guys who aren’t in a *ahem* relationship when a girl gets pregnant are only interested if it’s a boy.

    Mine were (in length, in age order) 22 and a quarter, 20 and a half, and 21, according to hubs. ER C-section, that one.

    Isa, you will be okay. A scheduled C-section is better than an ER one. It is still scary, but you will be fine. Congrats, in advance. 😉

  21. Maritza says:

    I hope the baby looks like her. Kimberly’s life is going to change drastically for the better, hopefully.

    @suggabugga – I know it takes the hotness away from Benecio knowing he got with that piece of trash girl. And I love knowing length of a baby and the weight. It is fun to see how long they are and though a long baby doesn’t mean the child will grow up tall it can be an indicator, especially if the parents are tall so it is fun to know and speculate. Also, I noticed hollywood babies are getting bigger now. Are people finally eating or just going full term now?

  24. RobN says:

    I understand she’s a nobody, but I like anybody who gets pregnant and doesn’t make me hear every single detail of it as if it were the first kid ever born. Congrats to all concerned.

  25. Green Is Good says:

    And Benicio is wishing he used a condom.

  26. smith says:

    Wow, a normal-lengthed pregnancy. Wasn’t Katie Cruise pregnant for like 2.5 years??

  27. Turtle Dove says:

    Congrats, Kim and Benicio.

    I like that they announced the baby’s length. It gives you a good idea of how big the baby is. 22″ is long and almost 9 pounds. This is going to be a tall girl when she grows up.

  28. kmct319 says:

    She may have been an immature party girl in the past but it seems by keeping quiet and minding her own business that she is trying to handle her situation in an adult way, and I for one wish her and the baby the best.

  29. AM says:

    Next time BDT double check your protection or get a vasectomy. I hope you are there for your child Rod wasn’t around for KS and look how she turned out. She will now get $$$$ in child support and never have to work EVER!!!!!

  30. Anaya says:

    Congrats to Kimberly. I would say congrats to Benicio as well but I have a feeling that he isn’t feeling celebratory at the moment. I just read that the baby is named Delilah. Anyone else see that? Could be untrue but who knows. Can’t wait to see the baby pics.

  31. khaveman says:

    Glad she and the baby are ok. I don’t know why her living off her dad was mentioned. She’s always been a rich kid. Rich parents usually take care of their kids? Rod is filthy rich, why not.

  32. Cait says:

    That poor kiddo.

  33. jay says:

    @khaveman – Kim doesn’t work she gets an allowance from Daddy that’s why it’s always mentioned. Not all rich kids are bone idle like Kim some actually do get off their backside and work. She never needs to worry about the next pay cheque as she now has Benicio’s pay cheque coming in because her daughter is her meal ticket.

  34. Nadia says:

    @kmct319 – Ofcourse KS kept quiet who wants to brag about falling pregnant from a fling??

    @suggabugga: I know how you feel it’s still very disappointing he used to be handsome, smart and cool now he’s scrapping the bottom of the barrel in looks and in women 🙁

  35. Alix says:

    Let’s hope baby looks like Mom.

  36. Skinnybetch says:

    I genuinely think he will step up and help take care of his daughter. He seems like a sensitive guy. I still can’t believe she didn’t use a condom with him, though. His track record is 100 miles long. I guess herpes is the gift that keeps giving!

  37. BeckyR says:

    Model and actress? Since when? She always looks like she is sulking. Must be a very fun person to be around. NOT.

  38. nadia says:

    @BeckyR – you’ve forgotten fashion designer aswell lol

  39. Jay says:

    filthycute – BDT is a serial womanizer and judging by this not a very good one!

    Green Is Good – BDT probably wishes he stayed away from KS in the first place

  40. helen says:

    Ha, I always remember Rod saying in an interview that Kimberley was complaining she couldn’t get a job, because if she worked in a shop or something everyone “would know she was Rod Stewarts daughter”, and she “Couldn’t do that kind of work” and he was all like- but I did loads of jobs before I made it big, I used to dig ditches, why shouldn’t you get a job? Ha.

  41. Lukas says:

    It is clear that this was a made to order bastard. An untalented woman feeling a big void in her life tries to fill it by having a baby from a nice, stable, talented and respected man. She used him as a sperm bank and will surely seek his financial contribution. A decent person does not do that to another person. May God punish her for what she did.
