Drew Barrymore Becomes First-Time Mom To Baby Olive!

Drew Barrymore is a mom! The actress and Will Kopelman welcomed their first child – a daughter — on Wednesday, PEOPLE confirms.

“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”

Although rumors of pregnancy began swirling in February, Barrymore, 37, never said a word, preferring to let her June wedding portrait speak for itself. In it, her husband — an art consultant — gently cradles his wife’s growing baby belly.


“I can’t wait until I have my children,” the actress recently told Haute Living, indirectly referring to her pregnancy. “I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”

“Drew is so motherly,” a source told PEOPLE in January. “Will would like to be a dad. Family is so important to him.”

TomKat Divorce: Tom Did NOT Settle With Katie To Hide Secrets!

Tom Cruise did NOT settle his divorce with Katie Holmes because he feared she might spill secrets about the actor — this according to Tom’s lawyer.

Attorney Bert Fields scoffs at reports claiming Tom was fearful of what Katie might reveal, telling TMZ, “Tom had nothing to hide and did nothing in the agreement to hide anything.  People are just making this stuff up.”

As for the child custody arrangement, it appears Tom will indeed have the “significant” contact with Suri that we reported about last week.  Fields said, “Tom will definitely have a meaningful relationship with his daughter, but I can’t talk about specifics of the agreement.”


Fields said Tom’s primary concern in the settlement was Suri and added Tom was “pleased we could work out how Suri will be treated and dealt with.” And, on the subject of Katie Holmes, Fields said, “I don’t think Tom is bitter.  He’s sad it came to this,” adding, “The media firestorm which is replete with bogus information is unpleasant for him.”

Do you believe that Tom Cruise did not settle with Katie Holmes to hide any secrets he may have? What do you think about the rumors that Katie auditioned to be Tom’s wife? Feel free to speculate with us in the comment box below!

‘Missing’ Actor Nick Stahl Is In Rehab

Missing “Terminator 3″ actor Nick Stahl has told his wife he has checked in to rehab, TMZ has learned.

The 32-year-old actor was reported missing earlier this week by his wife Rose — but e-mailed friends yesterday to say he was okay and would be unreachable for the next 30 days so he could get help.

Stahl’s wife, Rose, tells TMZ she spoke to the actor last night — very briefly — and he told her he checked into rehab. Rose says she double-checked with the rehab this morning to make sure he was still there — and he was.


Rose tells TMZ she is not even thinking about divorce right now — she is just glad he is safe. Rose says the couple’s daughter has been asking about Nick’s whereabouts lately … and Rose is glad she can now say that daddy is safe and will be home soon.

Rose says she plans to visit Nick in rehab as much as possible, but she doesn’t know how long his stay in rehab will be.

We’re all relieved to know that Nick is no longer missing but has just taken a step towards a better him. What do you think will be the outcome of his relationship with his wife?

‘The Band’ Singer Levon Helm Dies At 71

Levon Helm, the drummer, multi-instrumentalist and singer for The Band who kept the band’s heart for more than three decades, died “peacefully” Thursday afternoon, according to his record label, Vanguard Records. He was 71.

A statement from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which inducted Helm in 1994, called him the backbone of The Band. Helm had a voice unlike any other in rock music: definitively Southern, soulful and gritty, an oak-barreled whiskey that sometimes went down with a fiery kick. It was an American voice. Helm had been suffering from throat cancer. Despite reducing his voice to a rasp in recent years, it had not robbed him of his spirit.

At his home in Woodstock, New York, he regularly hosted the Midnight Ramble, weekly concerts that attracted sell-out crowds and all-star support from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson and Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen. In the past decade, he recorded two albums, 2007′s “Dirt Farmer” and 2009′s “Electric Dirt,” that won Grammys. And he occasionally took the show on the road, making appearances at Tennessee’s Bonnaroo, the Newport Folk Festival and Los Angeles’ Greek Theater.


After the Band’s split, Helm recorded a handful of solo albums and toured with his old bandmates, minus Robertson. There were losses there, too: Manuel committed suicide in 1986, and Danko passed away in 1999. Helm occasionally played with other groups, notably Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band. He also appeared in several movies, the best remembered of which is “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” which won Sissy Spacek an Oscar for her portrayal of country star Loretta Lynn.

Helm had some hard times in the late ’90s. His studio was hit with a fire. The throat cancer took his voice and medical bills threatened his house. He nearly declared bankruptcy. But the Ramble, intended as a one-off “rent party,” according to Helm, helped raise money and revived his career. Indeed, it seemed there was nothing he enjoyed more than playing music for a few friends. In 2008, Helm received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award with The Band. He wasn’t present to receive it. He held a Midnight Ramble in Woodstock instead.
