Baby news – yes, that baby – produced a gush of Valentines from readers this week, while a certain late-night talk-show host took everyone by surprise with his baby news.

On a political note, further incidents of sexting by a New York mayoral candidate ticked people off.

Here are the five stories that sparked the strongest reactions from readers this past week – the news that made you happy, sad, laugh out loud, awestruck, even angry.

And to make your responses known, keep clicking on the emoticons at the bottom of every story – one way to tell us just what you think.

Here he is! Tuesday’s first look at the royal baby outside St. Mary’s Hospital as parents Prince William and Kate (who named him George Alexander Louis) held him a day after his birth was the runaway most-loved story of the week. Surprised?

More baby news, only this one had no build-up: Late Night host Jimmy Fallon and wife Nancy Juvonen Fallon welcomed a daughter, their first child, on Tuesday, after keeping her pregnancy quiet all this time.

Amanda Bynes was hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold this week after she was seen near a gas can and a small fire on a household driveway in Southern California. Readers were empathetic.

The revelation of another sexting scandal involving Anthony Weiner, who continued the activity after he resigned in disgrace from the House of Representatives in 2011, got him a chilly reception from readers. His wife stands by him.

Geraldo Rivera claimed he didn’t understand Twitter – he does now, after posting a naked selfie after, he says, a night of too much tequila. (At least he’s in good shape.)
