Third Child on the Way for Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel is going to be a dad — again!

The Furious 7 star and his girlfriend, model Paloma Jiménez, are expecting their third child, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The couple are already parents to son Vincent Sinclair, 4½, and daughter Hania Riley, 6½.

Although Diesel is protective of his personal life, he opened up about his daughter’s delivery shortly after her birth in April 2008 — citing his costar, the late Paul Walker, as his inspiration for witnessing the event.

“I say to Paul, ‘You know, should I be in the delivery room or how’s that going to work?’ And he says, ‘You know, so many guys will tell you, “Don’t do it … you can’t stomach it … you’ll never look at the girl the same,” [but] it’s the best thing you’ll ever do in your life,’ ” Diesel, 47, said.

“[I] did everything but literally pull her out. I cut the umbilical cord. I was more present than I could ever have dreamed of, but the bonding that that allowed for with my daughter is priceless.”

In November, the actor took to Facebook to share Walker’s influence on his path to parenthood. “He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood,” Diesel writes.

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Are Engaged!

Mother Monster has some exciting news to share: She’s engaged!

“He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!” Lady Gaga wrote on Instagram Monday while showing off a photo of her heart-shaped ring longtime boyfriend Taylor Kinney presented to her while popping the question.

Shortly after the proposal, the betrothed duo were reportedly spotted inside her family’s Manhattan restaurant.

“I heard the singer say ‘It was time’ as she flashed the ring around,” reports Times Herald-Record executive editor Barry Lewis, who happened to be dining at Joanne’s Trattoria on the Upper West Side with his wife Saturday evening when the couple entered the restaurant.

Lewis reports her father, Joe Germanotta, opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate the happy couple.

Gaga, 28, and Kinney, 33, have been dating for about four years, and the boundary-pushing singer has hinted at an engagement in recent months.

“I really can’t imagine being with anyone other than who I’m with right now,” she told Howard Stern in December while dodging questions about a possible engagement.

“He is the right guy,” she also said, and added that they bond over their mutually creative work. “I have that feeling. I just know it.”

In October, Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – called the devoted Kinney “supportive of everything I do,” and also told U.K.’s The Times she loves that he’s a softie.

“He’s the first man that I have dated that, when I sing onstage, he cries,” Gaga said. “That means more to me than anything.”

And for those who wonder about the connection between the openly unconventional pop star and the seemingly straight-laced actor, the singer has a quick answer: He’s a “hidden weirdo.”

“He is extremely strange, actually,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in 2013. “We complement each other’s weirdness. That’s actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It’s a Dr. Seuss quote. You find in someone else a compatible weirdness.”

Even so, she also told the talk show host they keep things super normal when they’re together.

“Having your lover be your best friend is the best thing ever,” she said. “We’re boys. I wear his flannels and we eat pizza and watch TV. And then I play him my next single. He likes it, and that’s our normal life.”

Pamela Anderson Files for Divorce from Rick Salomon Again

The third time is not the charm for Pamela Anderson.

The actress is splitting from poker player Rick Salomon yet again, PEOPLE has learned. Her rep had no comment.

Anderson filed for divorce Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE. The couple separated a day earlier.

Anderson and Salomon, both 47, first wed in 2007 but got an annulment just two months later.

They then rekindled the flame, marrying in January 2014. Six months after tying the knot, the former Baywatch star filed for divorce – but asked a judge to dismiss her petition in August 2014.

The next month, she remained optimistic about the on-and-off relationship.

“It’s a real marriage. It has its ups and downs,” she told PEOPLE in September 2014. “I think we’re doing fine.”

Anderson was previously married to musicians Tommy Lee and Kid Rock.

Liv Tyler

Mama once more! Liv Tyler gave birth to her second child, a baby boy, on Wednesday, Feb. 11, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

According to a source, Tyler’s little guy arrived six weeks early.

The Leftovers star, 37, confirmed to Us through a representative this past September that she was pregnant. Tyler welcomed the new addition with her boyfriend and the baby’s father, Dave Gardner.

Gardner, who is a sports agent and David Beckham‘s bestie, began dating the stunning star last year. The couple stepped out this past fall, spending time together as Tyler sported a small baby bump.

Tyler’s new love comes six years after her split from her first husband, Royston Langdon. She began dating the rock musician, 42, in 1998, and the two stars exchanged vows in 2003.

The couple’s first and only child, son Milo, was born in December 2004. Four years later, in May 2008, Tyler and Langdon announced that they were ending their marriage. She met Gardner, who has two kids of his own from a previous marriage, through mutual friends.

“Dave’s perfect for her,” a source told Us Weekly last fall of Tyler and Gardner’s coupling, adding that Kate Moss introduced the two.

Tyler spoke about her pregnancy in an interview with Town & Country this past November, telling the mag that she was thrilled to be expecting.

“It’s fun not being on a diet or thinking, ‘Oh my god, I have to go to SoulCycle every day,'” she said of her pregnancy. “Having those mom hormones flowing around… You’re more present in your body, and it’s making me a better mother for Milo.”

Benedict Cumberbatch Marries Sophie Hunter

Those sounds you hear? They’re the sobs of Cumberbabes across the world.

Benedict Cumberbatch is officially off the market. The Imitation Game actor tied the knot with theater director Sophie Hunter on Saturday.

The private ceremony took place at St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church in Mottistone, located on the Isle of Wight in England. A reception followed at Mottistone Manor.

The medieval church was constructed in the 12th century. The manor is maintained by the National Trust and was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, which was completed in 1068. The oldest parts of the home that currently stands on the estate date back to the 15th century.

A local townsperson tells PEOPLE that Mottistone Manor has a special connection to Hunter as she is related to the Nicholson family, who live on the estate. The family, who are descendants of the 1st Lord Mottistone, bequeathed the estate to the National Trust in 1963.

“Seely family or Nicholson family now are tenants or residents even though they’re the hereditary landowners,” the organist at the church told PEOPLE. “Seely Family are the Lords and Ladies but they’ve sold their house to the National Trust. They live there or live on as tenants. They must have some sort of special agreement with the National Trust.

Another local told PEOPLE that the church is “very pretty,” but probably would fit more with a small wedding.

“The church is not that big … I would say maybe 100 people maximum would fit in there,” they said. “It’s a beautiful setting and very old English, very quaint and pretty.”

Despite Hunter’s connection to the town, locals tell PEOPLE that the couple brought in their own flowers, cake, and music for the wedding. Local florists and bakers confirmed that they were not making anything for the special occasion.

The scene of the wedding was low-key, with a group of about 12 well-wishers gathering to watch the arrivals at the church.

The Isle of Wight County Press reported that the groom spent the night before the wedding at the Royal Yacht Squadron, a prestigious yacht club founded in 1815 and whose patron is Queen Elizabeth II and the club’s Admiral is Prince Philip.

The stars, who are expecting their first child together later this year, caused a stir in November when they announced their engagement the old-fashioned way: with a notice in the U.K.’s Times.

“It’s what I would have done if I wasn’t sort of famous,” he told PEOPLE at the time. “It’s what we do. It’s a kind of traditional thing to do.”

Cumberbatch, 38, and Hunter, 36, reportedly met on the set of Burlesque Fairytales in 2009. This is the first marriage for both.

Johnny Depp Marries Amber Heard

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

They just couldn’t wait! Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have officially tied the knot, sources reveal to Us Weekly. The couple decided to say “I do” just days before their scheduled ceremony in the Bahamas.

An insider tells Us that the bride and groom married at Depp’s West Hollywood home on Tuesday, Feb. 3. They will next jet off to his private island in the Bahamas for a second service.

“It will be a really simple ceremony,” a source previously told Us of the tropical getaway. “Things are in a great place with them.”

Depp, 51, and Heard, 28, met on the set of Rum Diary in 2009 and began dating in 2011. Us confirmed in January 2014 that they got engaged, with Depp confirming the news himself that March.

“The fact that I’m wearing a chick’s ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway,” the actor said of his own diamond ring (via Associated Press) on March 31. “Not very subtle.” An insider added to Us that the ring Depp gave Heard was “too big for her, so he started wearing it.”

Amidst the happy news, Depp and the Magic Mike XXL actress celebrated their engagement party at The Carondelet House in L.A. Heard wore a “vintage dressy” ensemble at the intimate bash as they were feted by famous pals like Steven Tyler, Mandy Moore, Marilyn Manson, and Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

This is the first marriage for Heard and the second for Depp. The Yoga Hosers actor was married to makeup artist Lori Allison from 1983 to 1986. He also shares daughter Lily-Rose, 15, and son Jack, 12, with ex Vanessa Paradis, whom he split from in 2012 after 14 years together.
