Baby girl for Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Congratulations are in order for John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Krasinski took to Twitter on Monday to announce the birth of their baby girl, Violet, two weeks ago. “What better way to celebrate the 4th… than to announce our 4th family member!!!” Krasinski, 36, wrote, “2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy4th.” Page Six confirmed in January that the pair were expecting their second child. “The first pregnancy is the most self-indulgent thing in the world because you get massages and prenatal yoga and hypnotherapy CDs,” Blunt, 33, told C magazine in March. “During this one I forget that I’m even pregnant. I’m hoisting a 2-year-old around!”
Ellie Kemper: Hands off my baby bump!
Being pregnant doesn’t give people the right to touch Ellie Kemper‘s body. “I don’t know what goes through a person’s mind, a stranger’s mind, no less, when they think, ‘Oh yes, your stomach is now something that belongs to me and I can touch it,’” the actress said in a new interview with the “Today” show’s Willie Geist. The “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star, 36, and husband Michael Koman are expecting their first child this summer. “It’s actually crazy,” she continued of the impromptu bump-touching. “In a way I think it’s a nice reminder of humanity, but then I got quickly back to the idea that you wouldn’t do this if I weren’t pregnant.” It’s even awkward when friends feel the need to reach out and touch the star — who describes herself as “not a very touchy-feeling, comfortable person.”
Taylor Swift’s new relationship looks strangely familar
Taylor Swift’s Independence Day ocean getaway with new love Tom Hiddleston looked like it was a whole lot of fun for her and her famous crew. But the smitten singer has been here before and there are pictures to prove it. Fun-loving Taylor has been dating Tom for just a few weeks, but already it seems he’s declared his love for her, blatantly wearing a T-shirt with a love heart and her initials emblazoned across it. Bizarrely, Tom also has a fake tattoo with a red love heart on his bicep containing the letter T, seemingly to stir the continued gossip surrounding their odd antics over the past few weeks. But this is not the first time Taylor has made declarations of being head over heels on Independence Day.

Michael Jackson ex-wife Debbie Rowe diagnosed with breast cancer. Daughter Paris Jackson in the dark.
Michael Jackson’s ex-wife has breast cancer, and their estranged daughter doesn’t even know. We’ve learned Debbie Rowe was diagnosed recently and will undergo surgery in the next week, but her daughter, 18-year-old Paris Jackson, has no idea because she broke all contact with her mom more than a year ago. Rowe has all but given up on salvaging the relationship. After Michael died, Debbie and Paris got extremely close, to the point it created friction with the rest of the family. When Paris began dealing with her own problems, the relationship fell apart. Rowe believes the family influenced their daughter and drove a wedge. Either way, we’re told Debbie is sad, but is not counting on any emotional support from her daughter.
