Kimberly Stewart debuts baby Delilah, claims Benicio del Toro is “involved”


Kimberly Stewart gave birth to her Benicio del Toro-love child two months ago, and Kimbo has finally “revealed” the baby in a new photo shoot with Hello Magazine. I’m always surprised when American celebrities go with the Hello Mag debut – I guess Hello must be paying more than People Mag? Probably. I’m also surprised that Kimberly was “allowed” to debut baby Delilah in a magazine – she kept a surprisingly low profile during her pregnancy, and it seemed like she was making an effort NOT to famewhore. Still, it’s always nice to see baby pics. Kimbo also gave an interview about how Benicio is involved with the baby:

Benicio Del Toro surprised Hollywood earlier this year when he announced he was the father of Kimberly Stewart’s first child. And despite no longer being romantically involved with each other, the socialite insists the Oscar winner is very hands-on with their two-month-old daughter Delilah.

Showing off their child for the first time, the former model, 32, reveals Del Toro was in the delivery room when Delilah arrived on August 21. Del Toro and her mother Alana Stewart were by Kimberly’s side when she gave birth to Delilah Genoveva Stewart Del Toro in Los Angeles. Also at the hospital were her father Rod, stepmother Penny Lancaster, and her many siblings.

And despite Del Toro and Stewart splitting soon after Delilah was conceived, the actor is determined to be a prominent part of the little girl’s life.

Kimberly tells Hello! magazine: ‘The whole family, including Benicio, was at the hospital and my mom and Benicio were in the delivery room with me. Benicio’s very involved; he and Delilah have a very special bond.’

Kimberly admitted she had named her daughter after Tom Jones’s 1968 song Delilah.

She enthused: ‘I named her after the Tom Jones song, as I’d always loved that. She definitely looks like her dad, but she has my legs and eye colour.’

Delilah’s birth meant Rod, 66, became a grandfather just six months after becoming an eighth-time father to son Aiden, with third wife Lancaster. Having lots of young siblings, Kimberly has plenty of people to ask for parenting advice.

She said: ‘Dad handles children great – he’s had a lot of experience.

‘Since they (Delilah and Aiden) are only six months apart, I am counting on them being best friends.’

Kimberly and Del Toro were said to have had a brief romance last December after meeting at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood.

However, when Del Toro announced her pregnancy in April, he made it clear they were no longer together. His statement read: ‘Kimberly is pregnant. Benicio is the father and is very supportive. Although they are not a couple, they are looking forward to the arrival of the baby.’

[From The Mail]

There have been a handful of reports indicating that Kimberly still wants to be in a relationship with Benicio, and I suspect that she’s being so nice and sort-of forcing this whole “Benicio is really involved with the baby” idea so that Benicio will see that there are no hard feelings, that she still cares for him, and that they could be all coupled up with the baby, and she could make it really easy for him. Oh, well. I’m glad she and the baby are happy and healthy, and it’s good to see little Delilah.

    nah after seeing Roc & Roe baby pix today I can’t budge.

  2. gamblea says:

    omg, Kimbo rated a cover over JenA. wow

  3. Mika says:

    Ugly babies are the cutest.

  4. Happymom says:

    Why would People want her? She’s a total nobody-and I don’t think there’s a huge interest in him either.

  5. Azurea says:

    Oh my! She DOES look like her father! Let’s hope more of Kimberly comes out as she grows. My daughter looked exactly like my husband’s brother when she was born (no snide comments, please!) but she grew to look like a real mix of her dad & me (the best parts! I can see Kimberly saying the baby has her eye colour, or his nose, even hands & feet…but LEGS?
    Baby legs are all fat, bowed and folded!

  6. missanne says:

    desperate and tacky.

  7. RobN says:

    Or maybe he is involved with his daughter, everybody is getting along fine, and she wanted to nip the “Benicio spurns baby daughter” headlines that are bound to pop up if everybody isn’t seen together every single day.

  8. dorothy says:

    Kimberly Stewart on front of Hello magazine? Must have been a slow week for them.

  9. gee says:

    WAYYYYYYYYYY more interested in Kristin Davis’ baby!

  10. L says:

    Well her father is British and Hello features lots of articles on Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster (his current wife). So it’s not surprising that his daughter would go with them as well.

  11. Ari says:

    I totally read this as he was TOO involved lol…

  12. jamie says:

    Ok I’m a horrible person but the photo did make me laugh a little. The Stewart-del Toro baby is definitely NOT the most beautiful baby on the cover. I’m sure she’ll blossom in a few weeks, months, or years.

  13. Ell says:

    Kimberley who?

    I’m completely drawn to the pic of Kristin and little Gemma Rose…adorable!

  14. crys737 says:

    HER a model?! Where? Lots of photoshop eh?

  15. miss_bhaven says:

    OMG Kristin Davis’s baby is so friggen cute!

  16. Agnes says:

    Is she an american celebrity? I thought she was British.

  17. WaywardGirl says:

    I want to learn more abour Kristen Davis’ baby!!!

  18. Blue says:

    Gemma Rose is sooo cute!

  19. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I just love fat baby feet and hands. It’s bulbousness and dimpling, but avoid the nails.

  20. Maritza says:

    Delilah does have her mother’s eyes but she definitely looks like Benicio.

  21. gg says:

    I think Benicio might have some decent genes, if placed in a female – so to speak.

  22. Orange Cone says:

    Kimberly was/is a model? Who knew? Hm

  23. mimi says:

    Am I the only one who thinks that Kimberly Stewart looks really different compared to how she used to look?

    To me she looks like a totally different person on the cover.

  24. AM says:

    It was only a matter of time before this famewh*re would seek publicity with the baby. I bet Benicio is not happy with this considering he is a private man but I guess he shouldn’t of slept with her in the first place. I did read full article today, 1)she was delighted when she found out she was pregnant (ofcourse she was because she planned it lol) 2)she wants to teach her daughter morals – how can you when you have none. 3)Rod cried with happiness when she told him she was pregnant (yeah whatever!). Sorry Benicio but your daughter ain’t cute.

  25. whatever says:

    Sorry baby is fat and ugly 🙁 Epic fail Benicio Epic fail…

  26. Jay says:

    I agree with the her saying nice supportive stuff about Benicio because she hoping for a relationship with Benicio. Listen up Kimbo he only wanted sex…grow up and look after your child…once airhead always a airhead.

  27. msmischief says:

    yup, sorry, baby, you do look lk your daddy!

  28. Bev says:

    She was making an effort not to famewh*re?? Ha! Ha! Err she is a famewh*re that’s why this lazy idiot got pregnant in the first place. Any excuse not to work eh Kimbo? Trying to look classy in this magazine shoot doesn’t work your’re just Rod’s daughter with a kid from a booty call.

  29. dragonlady sakura says:

    God, forgive me, but Deliliah is an interesting looking baby. Definitely looks like her father. Kristen Davis’ baby is a little cutie though.

  30. haha says:

    Delilah has her legs what at 2 months?!?!.. man KS is thick lol

  31. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    This is still the weirdest hook up I’ve ever seen in my life …

  32. Bad Fairy says:

    Biblical character who made it her mission to take a man down. hmmm….

  33. Jayna says:

    Ah, cute baby. Thank God, she didn’t get mommy’s super high forehead and hopefully gets his thick hair instead of her stringy hair. Delilah is an adorable name. At least she didn’t name her Pear or Banana.

  34. Carolyn says:

    #10 spot on – she only got the cover because of Hello’s obsession with Rod & Penny. There’s no way Benicio is involved LOL. PS I love how Hello’s titles are ALL SHOUTING IN CAPITAL LETTERS! Gives me a headache!

  35. jack says:

    IF she wants benicio she should keep her mouth shut…he’s doesn’t talk to the press unless he has too. I would hate to be brought up with 8 half brothers / sisters, ex wives the stewart family don’t have morals. benicios family are so different and have a work ethic…i read that when benicio won his oscar his father said when are you going to get a proper job..i guess he new his life style in hollywood would end like this..what hope can you see for his baby.
