EOnline.com broke the news on December 15 that celebrity couple Jonathan Rhys Meyers and fiancé Mara Lane welcomed a precious baby boy into the world right from the comfort of their own home, adding to 2016’s long list of celebrity babies. Uniquely named Wolf Rhys Meyers, the bundle of joy was long anticipated through a series of charming social media pregnancy posts on Lane’s Instagram account, beginning in September when the couple announced their pregnancy. The celebrity couple started dating in 2014 and got engaged December of that year. Jonathan has been struggling with alcohol addiction for years now, but it is said that his fiancée has been a driving force behind his journey to sobriety, even through a brief relapse in 2015 in which he took to Lane’s Instagram account to address the issue and apologize to his fans.

There’s another celebrity baby to add to the mix! What are some ways to prepare for a baby boy specifically?

Cupid’s Advice:

There are some obvious differences you could imagine when preparing for baby boy as opposed to a girl, so here are some pointers on what to expect when you’re expecting … a boy!:

1. Pink or blue?: Telling a little girl to put down the football is vastly different than telling a little boy to put down a doll. Gender roles are a vital part of parenting from the very beginning so be mindful of gender roles and identity, and what they mean to you as a parent.

2. Boys do cry: Don’t assume because you’re having a boy that parenting will be a breeze. Even though they might get a little more down and dirty, know that boys (babies included) can be a lot more emotional and sensitive than popular stereotypes maintain.

3. The process: There’s no all-encompassing manual or instruction pamphlet designed for parenthood. It’s a learning process for not only the baby, but also for parent. If this is your first baby or baby boy, don’t be afraid of learning and making mistakes.
