Kate Hudson, Victoria Beckham Welcome New Babies

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Kate Hudson and Victoria Beckham each received a visit from the stork over the weekend.

Hudson's rep tells People magazine that the 32-year-old actress gave birth to a "healthy baby boy" Saturday in Los Angeles.  The baby's name has not yet been announced.

This is Hudson's first child with her fiancé, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy.  She has a seven-and-a-half-year-old son with her ex-husband, Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson.

Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham and her husband, soccer star David Beckham, welcomed their fourth child -- a girl -- to their brood Sunday in Los Angeles, according to People magazine.  Beckham revealed on his Facebook page that the child's name is Harper Seven Beckham.

The Beckhams also have three sons, ages 12, eight, and six.

Elton John Magazine Photo Censored by Arkansas Grocery Chain

Photo Courtesy - ABC/Ida Mae Astute(MOUNTAIN HOME, Arkansas) -- The customers of Harps, an Arkansas grocery chain, appear to be offended by the Us Weekly cover featuring Elton John and his partner, David Furnish, showing off their new son, Zachary.

When Jennifer Huddleston of Mountain Home, Arkansas visited a branch of Harps not long ago, she noticed the store had placed what is called a "family shield" -- basically, a piece of plastic -- over the magazine's cover.  On the shield are the words, "To protect young Harps shoppers."

The shield is the kind you often see in stores covering the lower two-thirds of adult magazines, like Playboy.

Outraged, Huddleston took a photo of the shield, which she then tweeted, along with the number for the Harps corporate offices, asking everyone on Twitter to bring attention to the incident.  According to ABC News, the company was flooded with calls, and the shields were taken down within a few hours.

A company spokeswoman told ABC News that they'd been put in place to begin with because a customer had complained.

The spokeswoman said, "It's company policy that we use those shields if we get a customer complaint on a certain [magazine] cover.  We have no opinion of what's covered up.  It's strictly because we got a complaint."
