ENTERTAINMENT NEWS

James Van Der Beek and Wife Kimberly Welcome Baby No. 5. And baby makes seven for James Van Der Beek and his family. The 41-year-old Dawson's Creek alum's wife Kimberly Van Der Beek recently gave birth to their fifth child and fourth daughter, Gwendolyn. James and Kimberly are also parents to son Joshua, 6, and daughters Olivia, 7, Annabel Leah, 4, and Emilia, 2. The actor posted photos of the kids meeting their baby sister and of him having skin-to-skin contact with the child. "Thrilled to announce we welcomed a brand-new baby girl into the world Friday morning, just in time for #FathersDay," he wrote. "These last few days, as I've enjoyed the privilege of making smoothies I know my older kids will like, making my wife red raspberry leaf tea to ease her uterine contractions, spending 'boy time' with my son and getting my two-year-old down for a nap in the way only I know how...I've been heart sick about something." "As I write this, kids are being ripped from the arms of their parents. By our government. For the kid's benefit? No - the opposite - as a purposeful display of cruelty to deter would-be illegal border crossers AND legal asylum seekers (it's happening to both)," he said. "And it wouldn't be honest to wax poetic about my new-baby bliss without speaking up against this atrocity." The U.S. government announced on Friday that 1,995 children were separated from 1,940 adults at the U.S.-Mexico border between April 19 and May 31, Reuters reported. Two months ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a "zero tolerance" policy in which anyone detained for entering the United States illegally would be criminally charged, which in many cases leads to children being separated from their parents. "Regardless of how you feel about immigration, or a wall, or this president...if we say we're okay with our government using human rights violations as a deterrent or as a bargaining chip...what happens when we find ourselves on the wrong side of the agenda? Either in this administration or the next?" James said. "This should not be a political issue - it's a human one. A crime against humanity is a crime against us all." "Oh, and @vanderkimberly - you're a f--king earth goddess rock star and I'm as in awe of you as I am in love with you," James wrote. "And our new baby's name is Gwendolyn #HappyFathersDay everybody." James had announced in February that his wife was pregnant, via a photo of their four children gathered around her, with her showing a bare baby bump. "Thrilled beyond belief to announce that we are once again adding to our family," he said at the time. "And I say 'beyond belief' because some people are probably wondering if we're out of our minds. Which we might very well be...but I couldn't be more excited. Or grateful. Or in awe of @vanderkimberly." (Eonline)

Real Housewives of Potomac Star Monique Samuels Is Pregnant. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels is pregnant. The reality star took to Instagram on Sunday to announce that she and husband Chris Samuels are expecting their third child. "I'm way too happy to be bothered... I'm full of life... LITERALLY," she wrote alongside a video of her baring her bump. #RHOP #MoniqueSamuels #RealHousewivesofPotomac #Blessed #PartyOfFive #Unbothered." The two are already the proud parents to two kids, Christopher and Milani. The happy news comes just a few months after the RHOP star revealed she had suffered a miscarriage. "As soon as I took the pregnancy test, Chris is just grinning from ear to ear, and it never once dawned on me that we would lose it," she said during an episode of the Bravo show. "Until you've experienced loss it's hard to even put it into words." The reality star then decided to take some time to focus on business opportunities. "I've been so non-stop busy that I don't even know if I could completely process what was going on with my body," she continued. "But, right now, I'll just use this time to keep pursuing other business ventures that I have in mind, and when the time comes and I'm ready to have a baby, it'll happen." Congratulations to the happy family! (Eonline)

Ne-Yo hasn't 'had any good, real sleep' in three days. Ne-Yo is need of a nap. The R&B hitmaker, 38, and his wife, Crystal Smith, welcomed a son on Thursday. The couple named their little bundle of joy Roman Alexander-Raj Smith. "I'll put it to you this way. I haven't had any good, real sleep in the last three days," Ne-Yo told Us Weekly. Roman is Ne-Yo's fourth child, his second with Smith. He has two older kids from a previous relationship. "He makes four. I have four children now, three boys and a girl and I'm loving every minute of it," Ne-Yo shared. "I love being a dad. It's fulfilling in a way that I honestly didn't anticipate. My joy used to be being out on the road, moving around. Now I just want to be home with kids." Ne-Yo, who recently went vegan after watching "What the Health," is open to having more kids should Smith want to continue. Smith shared the first glimpse of baby Roman on Saturday. Holding him tightly in the hospital bed, Smith explained that Roman was delivered via surgery and it was all unplanned. "Roman wasn't doing well in my womb and had to be taken immediately or the doctors feared the worst," she said. "Scariest moments ever!!! But he's here and he's healthy and we are so happy!!!!!"

Khloe Kardashian is finally ready to say goodbye to Cleveland -- at least for now! After two months of speculation about when the new mother would travel back to Los Angeles, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star made the trip home alongside her baby girl True, who was born on April 12. Fittingly, the mother-daughter duo received an incredibly warm welcome as they returned to California -- complete with balloons and cookies with Kardashian's precious daughter's face on them. Shortly before revealing where she would be spending Father's Day, Kardashian, 33, also shared a new photo of her daughter, who appears to be holding onto her father Tristan Thompson's fingers while taking a nap in her car seat. It is not immediately clear whether the NBA player also made the trip back to Los Angeles. The Good American designer then went on to document all of the sweet gifts that were waiting for her back home. One of the gifts, a sweet balloon sculpture, appeared to be sent by Kardashian's younger sister -- and fellow new mom -- Kylie Jenner. "Welcome home Khloe and True," one of the balloons read, making no mention of Thompson, who caused a scandal when news of his alleged infidelity broke just two days before the couple welcomed their daughter. "We love you," read another balloon, which was "signed" by Jenner and her daughter Stormi. Kardashian also showed off plates full of cookies with her daughter's face on them. "I have never seen cuter cookies in all my life. Oh my god, my little baby," she said while admiring the cute baked goods. "Oh, I am just in love." She then went on to praise the plate of cookies, which were covered with adorable Instagram photos of True. "Oh my goodness. I can't handle it. Welcome home cookies," she gushed. "No words, I love you guys." This is the couple's first Father's Day since welcoming their daughter. The 27-year-old NBA player also shares 18-month-old son Prince Thompson with ex Jordan Craig. While Kardashian had been living in Cleveland since welcoming True, momager Kris Jenner previously told Entertainment Tonight that her daughter would be back in California "really soon," and added that her daughter is "loving being a mom." Sources have also previously told PEOPLE that despite the cheating scandal, Kardashian is "in a really good place" and "feels whole" with her first child. "The Tristan stuff hasn't seemed to impact her substantially -- at least not for now," the source said. "She is prioritizing, and her priority is True. Whatever else comes next with Tristan, or really anything, she'll deal with it as it comes, but she will not let anything affect this amazing time with her little girl." Thompson opened up about fatherhood on a May episode of the UNINTERRUPTED's Road Trippin' podcast with Richard Jefferson and Allie Clifton. "This is the first girl Thompson, female Thompson, so it's huge," he said. "I think with a girl, you're just so much more emotionally like... with a boy, it's just like, 'Hey man, you'll be all right man. Stop crying.' But [with True], it's like, 'True, it's gonna be okay. You know, we're right here. Daddy's here to feed you. It's me! Look, yeah!' It's way different, but it's fun, though. It changes you." (People)

Bregman, who discovered Pacino in an Off Broadway play, was the personal and business manager not only for Pacino and Alan Alda but also at various times for Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen, Faye Dunaway, Candice Bergen and Bette Midler.
