Congratulations to Monica and her fiance Rodney “Rocko” Hill who welcomed a baby boy in Atlanta on January 8. We don’t know the first name of the little guy yet (Monica’s stepfather couldn’t pronounce the baby’s name this morning even though I pressed him to remember).

I am a little miffed that this isn’t BIG news though. I Googled Monica’s name and I saw only two references to the fact that she had her baby. Monica is doing well and she’s expected to leave the hospital in a couple of days – no, there weren’t any complications.

I’ve been out of the loop working hard on a new project so I had very little Internet access the past few days. I only found out Monica’s baby last night when Sarah from Celebrity Baby Blog emailed me. But at least I wasn’t the last to know.

I spoke with someone at V-103 this morning who didn’t know about the birth either. I’m told that Monica’s cousin gave the information to the local rag which explains everything. While the local rag reaches millions, it doesn’t reach Monica’s audience. Why do celebrities continue to underestimate the power of blogs?

    Sandra you always do your best. We use Celebrity Baby Blog too in our newsrooms here in Toronto and we used Sarah’s announcement too. I know she’s your friend and all, you’ll probably get the photos first. Keep up your good work.All I aired on my station this morning was that the middle name was Montez but no first name yet.
