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.”

Are you happy that Drew Barrymore has finally become a mother for the first time? Will she and Will Kopelman turn out to be good Hollywood parents? Feel free to dish out your comments and opinions through the comment box below!

Rapper Snoop Dogg Reincarnated As ‘Snoop Lion’ For Reggae Shift

Snoop Dogg says he was “born again” during a visit to Jamaica in January, is changing his name to Snoop Lion and is ready to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to.” The artist known for gangster rap is releasing a reggae album called “Reincarnated” in the fall.

Snoop Dogg, who is Calvin Broadus Junior in real life, narrated in a statement that he got the name Snoop Lion from Rastafarian priests during his trip to Jamaica for the documentary Reincarnated.

“I didn’t want to be Snoop Dogg on a reggae track… I wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion, but I didn’t know that until I went to the temple and received the name Snoop Lion from the Nyabingi priest,” the rapper said. ”I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said ‘Snoop Dogg’. And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion’.”


The West Coast rapper held a news conference in New York on Monday. Later he played five songs for a small crowd, including one called “No Guns Allowed.” It features his daughter.

The album will be followed with a documentary of the same name. It features him making music and will include some personal elements of his life, a producer of the film said. It will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Does the new name “Snoop Lion” suit the veteran rapper Snoop Dogg? Will you be supporting his shift from rap to reggae?

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!

TomKat Divorce: Two Parties Finally Reach Settlement

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached an agreement to settle their divorce, representatives of both film stars have confirmed.

In a joint statement released earlier on Monday, the pair said they were “working together” to settle custody of their daughter Suri, six: ”We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests,” the statement read. ”We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.”

The divorce has raised speculation among Hollywood media that the couple differed on raising Suri as a Scientologist. Neither Holmes nor Cruise’s legal team would comment. A lawyer for the Church of Scientology denied last week that Cruise wanted Suri to join the Sea Organization, sometimes described as the organisation’s militaristic wing.


It was revealed last month that Holmes, 33, was filing for divorce. It was Holmes’ first marriage and Cruise’s third. He previously was married to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, which both ended in divorce. He adopted two children with Kidman. Cruise also had a three-year relationship with the Spanish actress Penelope Cruz.

Paul Talbert, a family law expert, told Reuters news agency the settlement had been reached quickly for such a high-profile couple: ”Cases with so many moving parts do not routinely resolve themselves in a matter of 10 days. We obviously have one or two extremely motivated people,” Mr Talbert said. ”Nobody wins in a messy public battle, and you certainly have two concerned parents here that recognised Suri definitely loses if this is a public divorce.”

Since everything is under tight wraps, let’s speculate about the whole settlement. What conditions do you think were included in the settlement? As for Suri, who will have custody over her?

Kourtney Kardashian And Scott Disick Welcome Baby Girl!

Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick have welcomed their second child, a daughter named Penelope Scotland Disick, born early Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, reports E! News.

“Scott and I are overjoyed to welcome our precious angel Penelope Scotland Disick into our lives. We are forever blessed. Mommy and baby are resting comfortably,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star – who, with Disick, is already parent to 2-year-old son Mason – told E! News. Their new arrival weighed 7 lbs., 14 oz., and was delivered via all-natural birth, according to the report.

“It was a great. She had an easy delivery,” matriarch Kris Jenner told E! “[Penelope] is so cute. She looks just like Mason. She’s so beautiful. We are so happy.”


On Monday, sister Kim shared her elation on her blog, writing, “The whole family is so thrilled to finally meet her! She is absolutely perfect! I am so excited to be an aunt again and can’t wait to spoil little Penelope. I know Mason is going to be the best big brother in the whole world.”

Describing her pregnancy with Penelope, Kardashian, 33, told PEOPLE in April: “I feel really good … [though] this time I had a little more morning sickness. I think it’s a little bit harder being pregnant when you have a toddler I’m chasing after. Last time I could nap more.”

Do you think little Penelope Scotland will grow up to be just like her mom and aunts? Will she become another reality TV star in the future? Tell us what you think!

Beyonce: I Do My Own Hair And Makeup

Beyoncé remembers first trying makeup when she was 6 years old.

“I was playing in my mother’s makeup,” she tells PEOPLE. “I had blue eye shadow and red lips, and I put crazy blush on. I looked like a clown, but I thought I was so beautiful.”

Her routine has come a long way since then – the singer often does her own makeup for appearances – but her love for the basics remains. Asked what she wears to look awake after sleepless nights spent with baby Blue, she replies, “Lip gloss – I love L’Oréal’s Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Coral Sands – and a little bit of blush.”


Growing up around her mom Tina Knowles’s salon, Beyoncé learned a lot about beauty. “I like to experiment [with my hair],” she says. “I love playing around with highlights or bleaching the tips. I can cut and style my own hair.” In fact, she recently gave herself a trim, cutting two inches off her ends. “I just parted it in the middle and chh-chh-chh,” she reveals.

But it’s inner beauty that she values most – and she hopes her daughter will learn to do the same. “My biggest thing is to teach [Blue] not to focus on the aesthetic,” she says. “It’s really about who you are, and the human being, that makes you beautiful.”
