Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell Welcome Daughter Delta

Kristen Bell Dax Shepard Welcome Daughter Delta

Christmas came early for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell!

The Parenthood and House of Lies stars welcomed their second daughter on Friday, Dec. 19, they announced via Twitter.

Delta Bell Shepard is here. She doesn’t look like either Kristen or me, but we’re gonna keep her anyway,” Shepard, 39, wrote jokingly.

“The estrogen has now hit critical mass! Good luck, Dax. And welcome to the world DELTA BELL SHEPARD,” Bell, 34, added.

Despite the new addition, not much will change for big sister Lincoln, 21 months. “We were told to pick up the oldest first if both are crying,” the actor told PEOPLE in November.

Shortly after her June announcement that she was expecting, Bell — who showed off her baby belly in a series of stunning ensembles throughout her pregnancy — admitted the couple were stuck on a name for their second child.

“[We’re] completely stumped,” the mom-to-be said in July.

But only two months later, the parents-to-be had a baby name breakthrough. “We’ve settled on one, thankfully,” Bell, who chose to keep their baby’s sex a secret, told PEOPLE in September. “It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt Lincoln was so perfect.”

In the days leading up to Delta’s arrival, Shepard shared a video of his wife — whom he wed in 2013 — trying her best to jump start labor.

“Certain members of the family are READY for other members of the family to kindly exit their body,” he captioned a video of Bell bouncing on a ball.

Ashlee Simpson Is Pregnant

Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross

It makes her wanna La La! Ashlee Simpson and her husband Evan Ross are expecting their first child together, Us Weekly can confirm.

The recently-wed stars will welcome another baby into their family, which also includes Bronx, Ashlee’s 6-year-old son. (His dad is Simpson’s first husband, Pete Wentz.)

Simpson, 30, and Ross, 26, got married this past August in Greenwich, Conn. at the home of his mother, Motown legend Diana Ross.

Ross hinted at the possibility of growing his family with his wife last month at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1 L.A. premiere. “I would love to [have kids],” he told Us. “As many as possible.”

Actor and singer Ross added of married life: “It’s the best thing ever. I actually want to get back to her, although I’m excited to be on the carpet — it’s incredible.”

The baby-to-be is the 3rd grandchild of Supremes singer Diana, 70.

Both Simpson and Ross’ reps did not respond to requests for comment. E! News was first to report the story.

Eddie Redmayne Marries Hannah Bagshawe

Eddie Redmayne Marries Hannah Bagshawe

Eddie Redmayne is a married man.

The Theory of Everything star, 32, tied the knot with fiancée Hannah Bagshawe on Monday at Babington House in Somerset, England, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“I am happy to confirm that Hannah and Eddie married today,” the rep says in a statement. “They celebrated with a small number of close family and friends.”

Redmayne and Bagshawe were engaged over Memorial Day weekend.

The actor has been nominated for both Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe awards for his portrayal of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking as the role continues to garner Oscar buzz.

“It shows that the people seem to be responding to it,” Redmayne told PEOPLE last week. “As an actor, if you’re lucky enough to tell interesting stories about interesting people, then that’s a dream. But when they touch a nerve or connect people, that’s even better, so it does feel like an extraordinary thing. I’m just really happy right now.”

Hayden Panettiere Welcomes Daughter Kaya

Hayden Panettiere Welcomes Daughter
Hayden Panettiere just took center stage: her baby girl is here!

The Nashville star is a new mom after welcoming her first child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko on Tuesday, Dec. 9, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Kaya Klitschko weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz., and measured 20 inches.

“We are over the moon and madly in love!” the proud new parents tell PEOPLE.

The actress, 25, stayed mum throughout much of her pregnancy, letting her growing belly speak for itself.

But while walking the red carpet at the Emmys in August, Panettiere not only showed off her bump in a glittery gown — she also confirmed the sex of her baby the way!

“I want to go shopping, I want to paint the room,” she said after letting the sex slip.

In November, the mom-to-be admitted she was ecstatic to find out she would be welcoming a daughter. “I’m thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman,” she told Hello magazine.

“I feel very empowered myself and I think my daughter will, too.”

Panettiere announced her engagement to heavyweight boxing champion Klitschko in October.

Dianna Agron, Thomas Cocquerel Split

Dianna Agron and Thomas Cocquerel

Dianna Agron is back on the market. The Glee star and her actor boyfriend Thomas Cocquerel have called it quits, sources tell Us Weekly.

An insider tells Us that the pair split “a few weeks ago” after they started dating this past March. Agron, 28, was seen making out with the aspiring star, who appeared in an episode of Love Child this year, at the Coachella Music Festival in April.

Australian hunk Cocquerel was previously dating actress Lily Collins after they were introduced by a friend.

After splitting from Collins, he got to know Agron and the relationship quickly escalated, getting “very serious,” a second source tells Us. The pal adds that the blonde star flew to Australia this summer to visit Cocquerel and met his whole family while she was there.

Agron stayed quiet on the relationship, choosing not to confirm the initial coupling, nor commenting on the split. The Zipper star’s previous beaus include Dave Franco, Alex Pettyfer, and Sebastian Stan.

AnnaLynne McCord, Dominic Purcell Call It Quits After Three Years Together

AnnaLynne McCord and Dominic Purcell

Dunzo! AnnaLynne McCord and Dominic Purcell have called it quits on their relationship after dating for three years, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

“They have split,” her rep tells Us, adding that the now-exes, however, are “still amicable.”

The 90210 alum, who last stepped out with the actor at the premiere of I Choose this past June, was first linked to Purcell after being spotted getting cozy on set of the CW show back in July 2011.

According to JustJared, who was first to break the news, McCord, 27, already has a new crush — New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, 28.

The blonde, who attended the hunks game against the San Diego Chargers last weekend, wrote on Twitter along with a selfie of herself on the field: “Big thank u to @Edelman11 for making me lose my voice #SCREAMING his entire 56 yard run for a much needed #TOUCHDOWN.”

Keira Knightley Pregnant

Keira Knightley and James Righton

Keira Knightley has more to celebrate than a Screen Actors Guild nomination! The actress is pregnant with her first child, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. The New York Post’s Page Six was first to break the news.

Knightley, 29, who is married to singer James Righton of the Klaxons, has reportedly been avoiding alcohol, opting against the free-flowing champagne at the Sunday, Dec. 7 Moet British Independent Spirit Awards.

And while looking glamorous in pale pink and blue dress with feather detailing at the awards show, her midsection looked distinctly fuller than usual, and her dress choice was a departure from the tight-fitting gowns she’s worn in the past.

It’s a great time in the British actress’ life. On Wednesday, Dec. 10, it was announced that she had been nominated for Best Supporting Actress SAG award for her role as a codebreaker in The Imitation Game opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, boding well for her changes when it comes to Oscar noms.

But the down-to-earth actress isn’t letting award madness go to her head. She was seen out and about in London later that day, dressed down in a pair of baggy jeans and what seemed to be a man’s jumper, snuggled up against the cold in a sheepskin coat.

Knightley has spoken in the past about wanting to have children, but insisted work would continue to be important to her when she did.

“Would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No,” she told Vogue in 2013. “On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”
