Congrats to Kate Winslet, 38, who gave birth to a baby boy Saturday in the U.K. “Mother and baby are doing great,” her rep reported. This is her third child, but first with hubby Ned Rocknroll. She also has a daughter Mia, 13, from her first marriage to director Jim Threapleton and son Joe, 9, from her second marriage to “Skyfall” director Sam Mendes. As for taking her current hub’s last name, that’s not happening. “I was never going to change my name to Rocknroll,” she told the Telegraph in Sept. “I’ve never changed my name to anything, so I didn’t see a reason to start now…I quite like Kate Winslet; in fact, I think it’s very flashy.”
The LAPD is asking for the public’s help after “America’s Next Top Model” director James Marcus Howe was murdered in his Los Angeles-area home the morning before Thanksgiving. He, his wife and their child were all home when two suspects forced their way into the home after posing as solicitors. A struggle ensued and he was shot dead, while his wife was wounded. Their 6-year-old son was fine. The suspects have been described as a black male, 16-22 and a black male 20-25 and a third suspect is said to be a black female. All allegedly fled the scene in an early 2000 Ford Mustang, dark in color. A rep for TLC stated that the network “shares our deepest sympathy for the family during this time.” Anyone with information is encouraged to call Northeast Homicide Dectives Aguilar or Officer Watterson at 323-344-5731. Anonymous calls can also be placed to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
Now THIS is #multitasking! Model/mom Gisele continues to champion breastfeeding and shared this pic in support of it. Looking relaxed as she breastfeeds daughter Vivian, she tweeted, “What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep?” After getting all dolled up, the Brazilian beauty left Vivian with a sitter to go promote Oral B at a public appearance in Brazil. If only every mum could have an entourage!

Demi Lovato, 21, gave a candid interview to “Access Hollywood,” revealing shocking details about her past. “I couldn’t go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine, and I would bring it on airplanes,” she admitted. “I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep – and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it.” She checked into rehab in Oct. 2010, citing “physical and emotional issues.” She also said, “I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka. It was just nine in the morning, and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to L.A. to the sober living house I was staying at. When I hit that moment, I was like, ‘It’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone.” She also discussed her eating disorder, saying after binging and then throwing up, she realized, “If I don’t stop this, I am going to die.” Yikes.
Take care of yourself today!
