The week in gossip: 4 celeb births and Matt Damon’s hairy butt


What a week: Teresa Palmer became a mum, Simon Cowell became a dad, Charlie Sheen got engaged to a porn star, Footloose turned 30, Reality Bites turned 20, I separated from my husband …

Yup, it was all happening …


>> Aussie actress Teresa Palmer and husband Mark Webber welcomed a son, Bodhi Rain on Monday.

Teresa announced the happy news and shared the pic below via Instagram.


“Thank you God for blessing us with the most divine gift of our baby son. Introducing Bodhi Rain Palmer born safely, lovingly and naturally last night. 8 lbs. even. Bodhi means ‘Enlightened one,’ Rain means ‘Abundant Blessings From Above’ and we chose Palmer as his last name as Mark’s [5-year-old] son Isaac didn’t take his dad’s name either. Thanks for all the blessings and love everyone.”


>> Peaches Geldof shared this cute pic of herself with her youngest son Phaedra on Instagram, captioned: ‘Wid wud and mama’


>> Hilaria Baldwin shared this pic of herself and bub Carmen doing a little pre-takeoff yoga together on Twitter. Nawwwwww …


>> How cute is Michael Buble‘s bub Noah? The family visited Disneyland together: “Noah’s first time @Disney !! #Disneyland #family #fun #mickeymouse,” Buble wrote on Instagram.


>> Also taking in the sights at Disneyland were Ryan Sweeting and Kaley Cuoco: “Mini honeymoon at the happiest place on earth! @ryansweething #myhusbandisadisneyvirgin,” she wrote along with a photo uploaded to her Instagram account

>> Congratulations (I think) to Charlie Sheen, who got engaged for the fourth time over the weekend.  He took his porn star girlfriend Brett Rossi to Hawaii for Valentine’s Day and surprised her by popping the question. “Perfect day,” Rossi tweeted. She later E! that her ring is “classic and beautiful,”


>> I love the story behind this pic. Ben Affleck thanked talk show host Jimmy Kimmel for getting behind a charity contest he and Matt Damon are running to benefit the Eastern Congo Initiative and on Twitter with the message:  “@JimmyKimmel — I thank you buddy. And @easterncongo & @water thank you! Matt, on the other hand? Matt, you there? Right. We will fax you.”

The dig was a reference to Matt not having a Twitter account. Twitter CEO Dick Costolo added: “@BenAffleck, @JimmyKimmel, @water, we have printed out this tweet and placed it in a suitcase that we will have couriered over to Matt.”

As revenge, Matt photocopied his butt, and wrote a message saying: “Dear Ben and Jimmy, here’s my fax: Love MD.”

Funny: The men are 'roasting' each other in order to raise funds for their chosen charities

Kimmel shared the memo via Twitter, writing: “@BenAffleck — did you see what your ‘friend’ Matt faxed to us? NSFW.”


>> The Baftas were on last week and Tom Hanks was there to cheer on his Captain Phillips co-star, sharing this pic on WhoSay captioned: “Barkhad Abdi! BAFTA winner! He IS the captain now ! Somali champion !!! Hanx”

>> Madonna has made good on the promise she made on the red carpet at the Grammys and gotten her son David Banda a set of gold grills for his eighth birthday … as you do. She posted a pic on Instagram on Monday and captioned it: ‘Someone stole my Grilzzzzzzz!!!’


Nicole Richie attends Britney Spears' Las Vegas concert

>> Nicole Ritchie went to see Britney Spears perform in Las Vegas and got pulled up on stage. While she shared a pic of herself hugging  her old friend, she sadly didn’t include one of her crawling like a dog on stage while Britney walked her on a leash. Damn.


>> American Pie star Jason Biggs and wife Jenny Mollen welcomed their son, Sid Biggs, over the weekend. Jason documented every moment via Instagram video including her being wheeled into the operating theatre and contractions.


Sid weighed 8lbs 8ozs and was born via unplanned casearean section at 5.33pm at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles.
