Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore Are Divorcing

mandy-moore-435

It’s over for Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams.

Nearly six years after the duo tied the knot, Adams, 40, filed for divorce from Moore, 30, PEOPLE confirms.

The duo pulled off an under-the-radar wedding in March 2009 in Savannah, Georgia, just four weeks after announcing their engagement.

Last March, the couple presented a united – and goofy – front as they celebrated their fifth anniversary with pals including Minka Kelly.

“Celebrating love w the greatest friends and family last night. Feeling incredibly grateful today,” Moore wrote on her Instagram page, captioning a shot that featured the men in ’50s attire and the women donning funny hats.

The week prior, Moore shared a photo of their marriage certificate. “The best five years….” she wrote.

The couple, who collaborated on his self-titled album last year, have always been private about their relationship.

Explaining why he cut an interview short last fall after being asked about Moore, Adam explained: “I’m a private person and I’ll be a gentleman and say I’m not talking about my marriage ever. I’ll never talk about it. Ever.”

Patrick Dempsey’s Wife Files for Divorce

Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian Fink, are divorcing after 15 years of marriage.

“It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage,” the couple tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of our children, and we ask with profound gratitude that you respect our family’s privacy at this very sensitive time.”

Dempsey and Fink have three children: Tallulah Fyfe, 12, and twins Sullivan Patrick and Darby Galen, 7.

The Grey’s Anatomy star, 49, was in Daytona Beach, Florida, for a 24-hour racing event when his wife filed for divorce. “She was the one to encourage me to go and drive,” Dempsey told PEOPLE in 2007.

“Her influence was profound. Jill just gets me to believe in my dreams – and act upon them,” he said at the time.

Hayes MacArthur and Ali Larter Welcome Daughter Vivienne Margaret

Welcome to the world, baby girl! Ali Larter welcomed her second child, a baby daughter, with her husband Hayes MacArthur last week, the actress announced on her website on Monday, Jan. 19.

“It’s a girl!” Larter, 38, wrote in her post, which included a darling photo of her newborn daughter sleeping peacefully as she’s bundled up in a blanket. “We couldn’t be more excited to share news of the arrival of Vivienne Margaret MacArthur on Thursday January 15th 2015.”

Baby Vivienne joins her 4-year-old big brother Theodore, whom Larter lovingly included as part of her daughter’s birth announcement. “She came bearing gifts for her brother,” the Diabolical star wrote. “Batman sheets and lots of Gummy Bears!!! 7.5 lbs of love.”

Larter revealed she was pregnant again last August, debuting her baby bump during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Several weeks later, the pregnant Heroes alum showed off her burgeoning baby bump in a bikini snap while vacationing with Hayes.

Us Weekly spoke with Larter that same month at a Pampers event in NYC, where she spoke in detail about her second pregnancy and little Teddy’s latest milestones.

“We’re not going to find out,” Larter told Us at the time about the baby’s gender. “It’ll be a surprise.”

She joked to Us that she was somewhat-behind on the baby prep. “The second time does not get the [same] attention as the first,” she said with a laugh. “That’s for sure.”

While little Vivienne was in her womb, Larter and Hayes tried to explain to their boy what was happening with her changing body.

“We’re helping him understand that his little baby brother or sister is growing inside my belly,” Larter told Us. “So he’s a little gentler with me, but he does get interested. Sometimes he doesn’t care, he’s like, ‘Mom I don’t care what it’s saying,’ and other times I’ll be like, ‘Teddy it’s talking to you.'”

Nick and Vanessa Lachey Welcome Daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth

Nick Lachey Vanessa Lachey Welcome Daughter

The soundtrack of Nick Lachey‘s life just got even sweeter.

The singer welcomed his second child with wife Vanessa on Monday, Jan. 5, the new mama announced on her website.

Daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey — who was born at 5:17 p.m., weighing 7 lbs., 15 oz. and measuring 21 inches long — joins big brother Camden John, 2.

“I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl. A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it’s the day I would meet my best friend,” Vanessa writes.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how it felt to hold her in my arms for the very first time. Mommy, Daddy and big brother Cam love you so much already, Brooklyn!”

It’s been a busy time for the growing family since their July announcement that they were expecting a baby girl.

Despite trying to keep up with an active toddler throughout her pregnancy, Vanessa, who showed off her bump on a beach in September, still managed to make it all look “effortless,” according to Nick, 41.

However, the mom-to-be told American Baby in November that her approach to parenthood was simple. “Worrying is a waste of time … Every mother out there knows what she’s doing whether she believes it yet or not,” said Vanessa, 34.

But it was The Sing-Off host who wondered how his future as a father-of-two would work out. “I can’t imagine loving a child more than I love my son, so I guess it’s just gonna be a different kind of love,” Nick, who was on hand for Vanessa’s baby shower, told PEOPLE.

Days before Brooklyn’s arrival, the Lacheys celebrated the holidays with a sweet snapshot of mother and son sharing a smooch while dad Nick embraced his wife’s baby belly.
