Stacy Keibler posts first photo of daughter Ava Pobre on her blog: adorable?

keibler baby

It’s interesting to me that on the same day that TMZ discussed whether or not Amal Clooney is knocked up that Stacy Keibler decided to publish the first public photo of her daughter, Ava Pobre. Maybe I should stop comparing Stacy’s life with George Clooney’s life, but I can’t help it! I’m actually sort of proud of Stacy and how she rebounded so spectacularly from Clooney. She wants us to know that she’s doing well too. And she wants us to know that she NEVER wanted to marry Clooney or have his babies. This is what she posted on her blog along with Ava’s first photo:

Life can be unpredictable.

You feel one way, and then…boom! You need to entirely change your perspective.

That is certainly what happened to me this past year. Until I started dating Jared, the idea of being married and having a family was never on my radar. I was just hoping that the right love would find me.

But after a serendipitous reconnection with Jared, a friend who turned out to be my soulmate, we created a family together almost instantly. Talk about a serious change in my reality! This year and the holiday season especially has me feeling so nostalgic about family — my family, my new family, and of course, the newest addition to our family.

Ava has graced us with such joy, such light and such love–we never saw it coming. She is our special little lady, and I couldn’t be more thankful for how she has opened my heart.

[From Stacy’s blog]

Yeah… okay. As I said, I’m happy for her. And I’m impressed with how quickly she managed to go from “breaking up with Clooney” to “marrying Jared Pobre in what turned out to be a shotgun wedding.” But she’s lying to us and herself if she’s claiming she never, ever thought about marriage and babies when she was with George. Of course she did. She made a play for that life with George and when she figured out that it wasn’t going to happen with him, she moved on like a boss.

Here are some photos of Stacy and her husband going Christmas tree shopping over the weekend:

    You say she’s lying to herself, but I read it a different way…
    “the idea of being married and having a family was never on my radar”
    I think this is a very quiet, coded way of saying it was a business relationship and a contract. She thought that’s what she wanted and was happy with that arrangement.
    Then she realized she wanted more. She wanted the babies and the picket fence.
    People change their minds. Not every woman can endure ceramic cockatoos.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      ^Well said and I completely agree. The baby is just gorgeous.

    • Jegede says:

      I actually agree with Kaiser.

      Her longtime on/off ex Geoff Stults said Stacy never stopped talking marriage and babies when they were together.
      She did a 180 when she started dating George C and has seemingly gone back again

      Of course women can change their minds but considering George’s previous declarations on marriage and children; I’m guessing Clooney’s companions (like Leo Dicaprio) know to tow the line on that matter when dating them.

      Even if they feel differently in their hearts

      • Gea says:

        So far, she is only Clooneys ex who successfully moved on, good for her. She is smart after all.

      • scout says:

        Elisabetta Canalis, his GF before Stacy, is married to a orthopedic surgeon! That’s even better.

      • H says:

        People forget though that she had a thriving career before him. She was one of the most popular WWE Divas – I remember seeing her picture on a the wall of a teenage family member in 2006ish. The Clooney relationship was a successful business relationship. Maybe they had an emotional and sexual relationship as well, but as Jaderu articulates, it was probably contracted.

    • Ag says:

      agree. and, yeah, people are allowed to change their minds. not sure why we should hold this woman to a standard of behavior that no human being adheres to. maybe she’s just happy, with her husband and baby, and no longer cares about george. (i never wanted marriage or kids before i met my husband, so i hear what she’s saying. i wasn’t “lying” then, nor am i now, people just change.)

      and the little girl is freaking adorable! pure sweetness.

  2. RN says:

    That’s a beautiful picture of Stacy and her daughter. It’s exciting to see how much your heart cracks open with the birth of your first child. Congratulations to her and her family.

  3. Sea Dragon says:

    Take note Mrs. Kardashian: that’s what a real bond between a mother and her baby looks like. Beautiful!

    • Dani2 says:

      Mm..pretty sure Kim and North have a photo like this one on her Instagram where they’re both laughing. Just saying.

    • Cupcake says:

      I don’t know what kind of bond they have based on this picture. SK knows how to pose so it might be just that. Glad she hadn’t bombarded us with sanctimommy… yet.

    • Erinn says:

      Lol… I can pick up my friend’s infant and make an exaggerated face and get that same reaction. A photo never tells the whole story.

    • Dawn says:

      I absolutely agree with Sea Dragon. Face it people IF Kardashian had a picture of North looking at her the way Stacy’s baby is she would have put it out there for the world to see. She tried to get that shot but North would NOT co-operate with her. Kardashians put everything they can find out into the internet, they know no boundaries but she can’t advertise what never happened.

  4. Dani2 says:

    What a cute picture. Baby laughs/smiles are the best.

  5. The Original Mia says:

    She changed her mind and wanted more. Other celebs have done the same thing. Namely Angelina. She didn’t think she wanted to birth kids until she met Brad and viola, Shiloh & the twins. Happy for her. Cute kid.

  6. Someonestolemyname says:

    Beyond Adorable. Awwwww.

  7. lower-case deb says:

    i’m a sucker for happy babies.

  8. Christin says:

    More power to her, as she may be genuinely happy. Why is it that I think she’s throwing shade with her comments? She should move forward and not look back.

    Many of us came to know her as GC’s dress rack of the moment, so no need to reinforce it now.

  9. Anon says:

    Why does when you have a change of heart or perspective on your life and inner soul and things you may realize you have been lacking on your true inner peace be your lying.. We all make changes in our lives on what we tbink we want till something very different shows us we were wrong. Its life.. I have always liked Stacy

  10. Sam says:

    Awww, look at her little turned up nose….

    I am thankful that she managed a blog post without that “earth mama all organic” vibe she seemed to be cultivating before the birth. Maybe actually having a baby whipped her viewpoint into shape? Let us hope.

  11. OTHER RENEE says:

    That is a beautiful photo and an absolutely precious baby. I’m happy for her.

  12. L says:

    What’s up with her nose

  13. launicaangelina says:

    I like her post and I’m not sure it was shade throwing. I never thought I’d get married and have a child but after almost 8 years together, my husband and I married in June. We promised to try for a baby right after getting hitched and I became pregnant in July.

    It’s nice to read that other women had strong feelings one way and totally changed their mind and went for something different. Her baby is so cute!

    • ScrewStewrat99 says:

      Congrats!! =)

      I never wanted kids until I met my husband and I certainly wasn’t lying when I said I didn’t want them. Kids annoyed me and I didn’t want to be tied down with that kind of responsibility, but after seeing my husband interact with babies something in me melted and made me want a baby with him. We now have a 1 year old daughter and I wouldn’t change it for anything!

      • launicaangelina says:

        Awesome and congrats back! I agree, my husband is amazing with kids. It melted my heart too and I knew I’d have a real partner in parenthood with him.

  14. noway says:

    This is weird but I don’t have a problem with her now and how she is living her life. I know when she was with Clooney she seemed like all she wanted was the fame. Now with the baby and really the limited amount she has thrust her on us, even with her “lifestyle blog” I kind of like her and happy that she has moved on to a better life. I know she wouldn’t get the attention that she used to, but being George’s last ex, and just getting married with a baby she could get more attention if she wanted by just showing up at the right spots. I thought she would, but she hasn’t, and that baby picture really is adorable. Good for her.

  15. Patricia says:

    Sweet little baby, cute little nose!! I love how baby noses are kind of like prototypes for what actual noses will look like. So cute and exaggerated on the little tiny face.

    I love this pic of Stacy with her hair in a pony, looking a lot like me because I’m home with a 5 month old baby and it’s not glamorous but it’s the best thing in the world.

    Congrats to her!!

  16. Rhiley says:

    The baby is absolutely adorable and is obviously very smitten with her mama.

    • PoliteTia says:

      Yes she is. I bet we will never see North smiling this this with her mother, just the nannies.

  17. lowercaselois says:

    Cute baby and why should George have all the fun on the gossip sites. Since the baby has been born, she really has kept low profile. Good for her.

  18. scout says:

    Stacy is beautiful, a college graduate with 3.6 GPA, was successful in whatever career she chose, never was a wall flower to start with. I think she felt ignored after a year and realized there is no future with GC and moved on bravely and quickly. Baby looks like her dad, beautiful smile! Best to her and her little family.

    • birdy says:

      This is simply an attention grab as she couldn’t get one of the major outlets to pay for her baby photos and with rumours that the ex’s new wife could be pregnant, she has to get it out now for some interest before it all goes away and the focus is on the more famous couple. Do you really think that she would have announced it this way if she could have made some cash and gotten PR out of it? The baby shower was the tabloids for god’s sake. Problem for her is that G was engaged and the wedding was in the full swing when Stacy had the kid and the press are far more interested in G than Stacy. She was doing pap walks every single day when pregnant then as soon as she got her figure back,. The only win for everyone is that she has stopped the sanctimonious comments about motherhood now that she has actually had the kid.

      Not to rain on anyone’s parade but she has failed at a few things:
      She never finished college. Cheerleading and wrestling became her priority.
      She made poor investments losing truckloads of cash (baseball team??) I the pre Clooney years
      After doing well on DWTS, she was offered a contract with that network but never got her own show or a recurring role over a two year period
      Her George bought tv show barely lasted one season

      For your average blonde I want to be famous because I am special – she has done ok. Not brilliant but then, she doesn’t actually seem to have a particular talent that makes her unique. But the only reason she is still relevant is G. She wasn’t getting press for anything other than “party hosting” events before G came on the scene.

      • seashell says:


        SK has always been a flibbertigibbet. She flits from one thing to the next. She was never able to create a brand for herself b/c she kept changing her “image”. Now at least she has “mother” as a job and will sell that.

        I do wish her well. She is what she is. And it’s great that she stuck it to GC by getting pregnant and married so quickly after their split.

  19. I Choose Me says:

    That baby is absolutely adorable.

  20. PoliteTia says:

    That is one cuuuute baby!!!! You go girl!

  21. Dude says:

    Could y’all maybe stop lying? That baby is seriously hideous.

  22. melain says:

    Aww. I love the way those two are interacting!
