Eddie Murphy Welcomes Baby No. 10 With Fiance Paige Butcher. Eddie Murphy is now a happy father of 10! The 57-year-old comedian and his fiancee Paige Butcher welcomed a baby boy on Friday, Nov. 30. Their son named Max Charles Murphy came into the world weighing a healthy 6 lbs., 11 oz., and measured 19 inches long. A rep for Murphy revealed, "Both mother and son are doing well." The newborn is Eddie's second child with the model, who he started dating in 2012. In the six years since they started dating, they welcomed daughter Izzy Oona Murphy in 2016. Eddie already has a good amount of experience with newborns under his belt, having eight children from previous relationships over the years. The comedian first became a dad when he dated Paulette McNeely and had his eldest son, Eric, 29. Later, he welcomed son Christian, 27, with ex-girlfriend Tamara Hood. And from his marriage to ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy, he was gifted Bella Zahra, 16, Zola Ivy, 18, Shayne Audra, 23, and Bria, 28, and son Miles Mitchell, 25. Murphy and Spice Girl Mel B also share a daughter, Angel, 11. The addition of Max to the Murphy family is the cherry on top of a year filled with great news. In September, Eddie and Paige, 39, got engaged following nearly six-years of dating. Although, there is little known of the large diamond that Eddie gifted to his wife-to-be, since the couple is noticeably absent from social media. In 2013, Butcher told Vanity Fair, "I'm in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there's already enough of me out there... I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now." Unfortunately, that means there likely won't be any adorable photos of baby Max, but, oh well! (Eonline)

When singer/actor Nick Jonas proposed to Indian superstar Priyanka Chopra this past summer, the two knew their wedding had to be a meld of their cultures, religions and families. "Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day," Chopra, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week's cover story. "But I never had a plan about what I wanted it to be." The singer, 26, suggested they dream big and opt for not one, but two ceremonies in India to celebrate their different backgrounds. "It melted my heart," adds the Quantico actress. "Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special." Hosting an epic wedding weekend for 225 guests including Jonas's brothers Kevin (with wife Danielle), Joe (with fiancee, actress Sophie Turner) and Frankie along with Chopra's brother Siddharth -- all planned by Sandeep Khosla and Aditya Motwane, respective founder-owners of Abu Jan Sandeep Khosla and Motwane Entertainment & Weddings -- the couple held court for four days at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. On Dec. 1, the day after Chopra and Jonas held a Mehendi ceremony, where they were both adorned with henna tattoos, and a Sangeet that night in which both families performed elaborate musical numbers with choreography and costumes, the bride and groom were married in a Western ceremony on the palace's lawn. As a string quartet played, Chopra, wearing a hand-beaded and embroidered Ralph Lauren gown with a stunning 75-foot long veil, was escorted down the aisle by her mother Madhu (her father Ashok died of cancer in 2013). "It was all tears. All tears," says the actress, who carried a bouquet of hyacinths and tuberoses designed by Jenya Flowers (NYC), which created the floral arrangements for the entire wedding party. "I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life." As for Jonas, "the emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me," he says. "You know you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional." After the two exchanged vows again in a lavish Hindu wedding on Sunday, they concluded the weekend with a Bidaai, a bridal ritual where Chopra's family blessed her new life with Jonas. "I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up," says the actress. "We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us. It's been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way." (People)

Bailee Madison Opens Up About Her Romance With Boyfriend Alex Lange. The longer the wait, the better the reward, right? Wizards of Waverly Place star Bailee Madison opened up about her relationship with her actor and social media influencer boyfriend Alex Lange on her podcast Just Between Us, and E! News got an exclusive sneak peak at the episode. Bailee and co-host Kaitlin Vilasuso both brought their significant others onto the show and discussed everything from on-screen kisses to saying, "I love you." Kaitlin's husband is Young and the Restless actor Jordi Vilasuso. When Bailee and Alex first started dating (they've been together for 2 years now), Bailee revealed that her boyfriend told her he loved her the night they met. Bailee's reply wasn't as immediate, but Alex stayed positive and hopeful about it. Alex said on the podcast, "I said I love you the night I met you. And I said every night for six months until you said it back." Patience is a virtue! "I believed it and I said it again and again." he continued. The Good Witch star waited six months until she felt comfortable enough to say it, and it made Alex the happiest guy when she did. "When you said it back, it was worth it. It meant something," Alex told the podcast hosts. "Don't get me wrong, I wish you hadn't left me hanging for half a year, but I'll take what I can get." Bailee went on to explain the origins of their relationship and how it wasn't exactly immediate. She said they first met at a clothing store opening, which was the only time the two of them hung out together for a bit. "For 3 months we just talked on the phone until we saw each other again in person for one night," she added. The phone calls and constant communication continued for a while. "Alex went off to see his family in London, so we were texting and stayed up until 5 am just on the phone talking to each other." At one point in their relationship, Alex made a grand gesture that spoke volumes about his feelings for Bailee. She told a sweet anecdote of a time when he texted her a picture of a pebble. But what's a pebble got to do with anything? "I got game," Alex chimed in at this point. Bailey described to her listeners, "He goes, 'Do you know what penguins do when they choose their mate for life?' And I go 'No,' and he goes, 'They give them a pebble. So here's a pebble.'" The two of them share lots of love for each other on social media and often post photos of each other at red carpet appearances or just enjoying the day together. Their relationship clearly must have been worth the wait because there's no stopping these two lovebirds now! (Eonline)

Ryan Reynolds Says Being a Dad Has 'Made Me a Better Person': 'I Sort of Miss Being Horrible'. Ryan Reynolds is one proud dad. During a visit to Tuesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actor -- who shares daughters James, 4, and Inez, 2, with wife Blake Lively -- opened up about his love of fatherhood, admitting, "It's kind of made me a better person, I think." "I sort of miss being horrible," Reynolds, 42, teased. "I love it." That doesn't mean being a dad comes without difficulties. "It's hard. It's always a challenge, with two kids," Reynolds said, joking, "I think of blinking now like tiny little breaks." "But it's a dream," he said. "They're the best. They're my buddies. I love it." Reynolds was on DeGeneres' show to promote Once Upon a Deadpool, a recut version of this summer's Deadpool 2 that is PG-13 rated so his youngest fans can join in on the fun. "I get a lot of parents who come up who say to me, 'Are they ever going to do a PG-13 version of Deadpool? 'Cause parents and adults, myself included, want content that they can watch with their kids that's also entertaining for you. And that's what this version of Deadpool is," he explained. With the blockbuster now cut for a younger generation, Reynolds might actually be able to show it to his daughters one day. In the meantime, they're busy watching Frozen. "I have seen Frozen with my daughters so, so many times." Reynolds lamented, quipping. "People don't know this, a lot of parents don't know this, but if you actually watch Frozen backwards, it's actually a shot for shot remake of The Exorcist. So that would obviously enrage a lot of parents." Once Upon a Deadpool hits theaters on December 12 and will run only through Christmas Eve. For every ticket sold, $1 will be donated to F -- Cancer. "That's why I'm so excited about the Deadpool 2's PG-13 cut because not only is it an incredibly entertaining movie, but it's for a great cause," Reynolds said. Also, during his Ellen appearance, Reynolds remarked at how his eldest daughter is a good traveler, explaining she's "into her books and her little stuff." Back in May, Reynolds chatted on Good Morning America about James' voice cameo in the opening for "Gorgeous" on Swift's Reputation album. "It was a voice memo that ended up in a song. It's pretty amazing," Reynolds said. "My daughters had a really, really terrible ego problem now after that song came out. She's insufferable." When asked if he would nudge his daughters into show business, Reynolds said no. "Mostly because I'm against child abuse," he joked. "Show business, for a little kid, that's a crazy pursuit."

Travis Scott Says He "Only Got Love for My Wife" After Calling Out Trolls for Cheating Rumors. Travis Scott is not a fan of rumors that he's cheating on his girlfriend and "wife" Kylie Jenner. On Monday, an Instagram user posted a photo of a man who looks like Travis (same hair style) getting cozy with another woman. Neither face in the photo is clear, but it was enough to make some people believe the Astroworld rapper was being unfaithful. He responded on the Instagram post and on his own social media accounts to affirm that these claims against him simply were not true. "S--t cap ass f--kkkk TMZ ain't post this s--t. Trolls working hard today," Travis replied to the picture. "I don't be on balcony wit no thots. That s--t lame. Try again u trollssss. Me and my wifey sturdy. Back to celebrating!!!" In another comment, the "Stargazing" artist praised Kylie yet again. "Only got love for my wife," he added. "No time to be wasting. Think again." If that wasn't a enough powerful response, Travis went the extra mile and posted a note on his Instagram story about the rumors. "Trolls always wanna create some fake s--t to destroy real love," he typed. "GOING OVER BOARD TO MAKE S--T LOOK LIKE IS NOT EVIL. I hate acknowledging s--t. But quit try to take joy from s--t that's good. I pray god blocks out all evil." He repeated one line from his comment into his note. "BACK TO CELEBRATIING!" he wrote. Travis is so pumped about "celebrating" because his song "Sicko Mode" topped the Billboard Hot 100 after two weeks in second place. He replaced Ariana Grande's massive hit "Thank U, Next" as the No. 1 spot. His album Astroworld also made a huge jump from seventh to first place on the Billboard 200. Grande herself praised the rapper for his feat. "So f--king dope. Congratulations!" she tweeted. The cheating rumors about Scott arose around the same time the Kylie Cosmetics founder shared a photo that made some people question their relationship status. In a good way, though. Kylie posted a photo on her Instagram story congratulating Scott for his Billboard achievements and captioned it with an engagement ring emoji. The emoticon of choice falls in line with nicknames they call each other, including "hubby" and "wifey." Travis called Kylie "wifey" in his comments, but they aren't married just yet. Right before Scott's concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City -- his biggest yet -- Kylie posted a photo on Instagram of herself getting ready for the show. She captioned it, "the look ya give when ur hubby is performing at madison square garden tonight." The two of them are parents to the adorable 10-month-old Stormi Webster, who also loves cheering on her dad at his concerts. While the new parents are focusing on raising their daughter now (and taking gorgeous family photos while they're at it), marriage isn't out of the question. "Kylie and Travis have definitely discussed getting married and she has expressed what type of ring she would want Travis to buy her. It would definitely be over the top," a source told E! News earlier. "They are not engaged right now but have talked about it, and it's only a matter of time." (Eonline)

At the beginning of April 2017, the world collectively sobbed as it was confirmed that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan had decided to split. We know what you're all thinking: first Anna and Chris, and now this?! The couple, who tied the knot in 2009, confirmed the news via social media, simultaneously breaking hearts everywhere. Since then, it seems that Channing and Jessie J are now dating, while Jenna apparently officially filed for divorce and has now been linked to someone new. According to The Blast and People, Jenna is dating Broadway actor, Steve Kazee, who is 43 and won a Tony Award for his role in Once (you might also recognize him from his roles in Shameless and Nashville. A source said: "They've been dating for a couple [of] months and she's really happy." A photo surfaced of the pair on social media, which showed Steve and Jenna with some pals at Haunted Hayride in LA's Griffith Park; if you look closely, Steve has his arm around Jenna. According to US Weekly, the star, who attended the Baby2Baby gala in Culver City, California, was apparently asked about her new romance, to which she replied: "I don't talk about my personal life but thank you! I am very happy." And now, we've spotted a sweet comment from Steve on one of Jenna's Instagram photos. Jenna shared a snap of herself with the caption: "Have you found your favorite yet?? #JennaDewanxDanskin", which Steve commented on saying, "Yes. I have." According to documents obtained by The Blast, Jenna cited 'irreconcilable differences' in her papers and has asked for joint legal and physical custody of their five-year-old daughter, Everly, as well as asking for her name to revert to Jenna Dewan, rather than Jenna Dewan Tatum. Channing has apparently agreed to have joint custody. Jenna has been laying low since the split but spoke candidly Women's Health and admitted that she feels like she's become more in touch with her 'womanly power' since the split. The 37-year-old World of Dance host stripped off to show her to-die-for figure for the entirely nude article in the Global Naked Issue of the magazine, which was shot in the Californian desert. "I did a lot of work healing from the inside out, becoming more in touch with my womanly power," she said. She's also working to keep her dancer-body as fit as ever. She explained: "I really like to feel strong, and I like to feel curvy. And when I say 'curvy,' I mean 'muscular.' In the gym, I add more weight rather than increasing reps because I want to build muscle, so I can pick up my daughter. Before, it used to be like, 'I wanna get long, lean muscles.' Now, I'm just like, 'I wanna feel strong and good.' Jenna and Channing announced their split at the beginning of last year, and Jenna has since spoken out about life after the split. She explains that there's "a lot of love" in her "new normal" and they're "very positive". Her comments come just a couple of months after Jenna defended Channing, when (it seems, unfounded) rumors began to spread that he'd been "drinking" and "flirting". Her rep told MailOnline: "Happy to clarify that absolutely none of these rumors are true. The reason our statement was so positive [was] because that's the reality of the situation." Another source suggested that their hectic schedules were behind the split. The source said: "Channing has been working non-stop, with four movies announced for 2018 alone. It is hard on a marriage to be apart so much, especially when you have a young child. Plus Jenna is in pre-production for the movie, Berlin I Love You. "Both Channing and Jenna are devoted to their daughter and have worked hard to spend as much happy family time together, despite the problems in their relationship that the distance has seemed to magnify."

Monica says anyone shocked to learn she's a mortician should understand one thing ... she's more than just a Grammy-winning singer. We got Monica at LAX on Monday and had to talk to her about recently revealing she's a legit mortician. She revealed her side hustle's actually something she's been doing for YEARS. It's true ... she's been working at her uncle Gus Thornhill's funeral home since 2013. She tells us her uncle's been at it for nearly 50 years and she grew up around the occupation. So, it's no surprise when you hear the passion in her voice about being a mortician. She tells us why it's a calling and why it's important to get out of your zone. (TMZ)

Winnie Harlow Shares Her ''Truth'' Amid America's Next Top Model Controversy. Winnie Harlow is setting the records straight on her statements about America's Next Top Model. The former reality show contestant took to Instagram on Monday to clear the air about the controversial comments she made back in May. As a refresher, Harlow said on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen, "I really started [modeling] after the show because that really didn't do anything for my career...which it doesn't do for any model's career realistically." At the time she said that she "thought that was going to be a career starter, but it was really like a reality TV show... That's not what I signed up for." But, regardless of her expectations, the 24-year-old acknowledged, "It was still a part of my history and I'm really grateful for everything that I've done to get where I am." Of course, this kicked up a bit of controversy when Tyra Banks visited Andy Cohen on the talk show on Thursday night. However, Tyra kept the drama to a minimum and shrugged it off. "I have nothing but love for my girls and my girls come from so many walks of life and so much pain and so much hardship and so much story, and a lot of the times when people express themselves in certain ways, there's a reason," the supermodel stated. "I will respect her confidentiality and her life, but yeah." Now, Winnie is stepping in to explain what exactly she meant all those months ago. "It has nothing to do with being ungrateful, and more over nothing to do with 'shade' to Tyra," Winnie wrote. "She was the first person of higher status to make me feel like I could be a model and not only am i grateful for that, it's something I'll never forget. The lengthy comment continued: "After being on the show no one would book me and no agency would sign me because of the Reality Tv stigma." This realization inspired Winnie to seek out other opportunities in Europe, where she was not as well known for her time on the show. Eventually, she rose to the level of fame she is at now, but she wished she had known before becoming a contestant that "you could be successful off the show in some ventures." "My truth is, I stand by what I said, and I say it because I don't want girls thinking it's a jump start to a modelling career because of me," she explains. "I learned that the best thing to do to become a model and to be taken seriously is to take plain head shots and find a reputable modelling agency." Aside from being an honest individual, Winnie felt compelled to tell the truth because she wants to "be real with young guys and girls whose dreams are to become models." Nonetheless, the 24-year-old insists she is "always grateful for every experience" that allows her the opportunity to "learn and grow." (Eonline)

Madonna's long-running feud with Lady Gaga is heating up again -- and the Material Girl's seemingly taking a swipe at the rival singer as Gaga campaigns for an Oscar. The latest alleged dust-up's gone down after a video compilation circulated online of Lady Gaga repeatedly saying since October during her "A Star is Born" press tour: "There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don't believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life." Some have noticed that the quote sounds similar. On Monday, Madge posted an Instagram story of herself being interviewed back in the '80s saying, "If there are 100 people in a room and 99 say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn't." Madonna also posted an image of herself with the caption "Don't Fk with Me Monday," which set off a firestorm in the comments between her fans and Gaga's Little Monsters. "For all the 11-year-old Gaga fans, just google 'Single White Female,' then you'll understand why Madonna is likely upset," said one fan. Another fired back, "You're a little old for games, your sentences are not catalogued, much less protected by copyright." The apparent animosity between the two pop icons has brewed for years. In 2012, Madonna publicly stated, "I certainly think [Gaga] references me a lot in her work." She then went on to call the Gaga song "Born This Way" "reductive." "When I heard ['Born This Way'] on the radio ... I said, 'That sounds very familiar,'" quipped Madonna. The tune's been compared to "Express Yourself." In 2016, Gaga said in an interview, "Madonna and I are very different ... I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours a day in the studio. I'm a producer. I'm a writer. What I do is different." Then again, Madonna said in 2012 of Gaga, "I love her." And in Lady Gaga's 2017 Netflix documentary she stated of Madge, "I still admire her, no matter what she might think of me." (Page Six)

TMZ Sports obtained video of a very upset Kareem Hunt being restrained in the moments after he allegedly beat up a 37-year-old man inside of a Kansas City nightclub back in January. As we previously reported, a man filed a police report back in January claiming Hunt and George Atkinson -- along with others -- jumped him at the Mosaic nightclub around 2 AM on Jan. 7. In the police report, the man claims the Chiefs players had been partying at the club after being bounced out of the playoffs by the Titans a few hours earlier. The man claims he suffered broken bones and bruises in the attack. In the video, you can clearly see Hunt being held back by a security guard -- while other patrons try to calm him down. We're told Hunt was eventually escorted out of the club. Neither Hunt nor Atkinson were arrested and no charges were filed. Law enforcement tells us the accuser eventually stopped cooperating with police. Of course, the very next month Hunt got into a violent altercation with a woman at a hotel in Ohio -- and despite being restrained in that incident, he broke free and brutalized the woman. Hunt allegedly got into a 3rd altercation at a resort in Ohio in June. He was not arrested or charged with a crime in that incident either. (TMZ)

There's no reason Kareem Hunt shouldn't be arrested and charged with battery for attacking that woman back in February ... so says famed prosecutor Christopher Darden. "I would have filed battery charges against him," Darden tells TMZ Sports ... saying the video evidence would essentially make it an "open-and-shut case." Darden is most famous for his work in the O.J. Simpson trial, but also prosecuted tons of cases during his 15-year run as a part of the L.A. County District Attorney's office. In fact, Darden tells us exactly what he would do to get the conviction -- even if the victim refuses to cooperate. Darden also says prosecutors in Ohio still have time to make things right and arrest Hunt -- telling TMZ Sports he thinks the NFL star would benefit from a court-ordered sentence like a diversion program, therapy or anger management. Worth noting ... the victim has 18 months from the day of the incident (Feb. 10, 2018) to go to prosecutors and seek criminal charges before the statute of limitations expires. So, Hunt isn't necessarily off the hook yet. (TMZ)

Michael J. Snyder -- known for being the first franchisee of the Red Robin restaurant chain, who later became CEO -- has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head ... TMZ has learned. Yakima County Chief Deputy Coroner Marshall Slight tells us ... Snyder committed suicide with a high-powered gun Sunday in Washington state. We're told he shot himself on a bench in the front yard of his home. Slight says police responded to a 911 call and found Snyder's body ... no suicide note was left behind. Michael and his brother became the first Red Robin franchisees in 1979 and went on to open 14 of the burger restaurants in Washington, Colorado and Idaho. Snyder merged his franchise company with the parent company in 2000 ... and took over as CEO and President. He was ousted in 2005, though, after an internal investigation discovered he had misused funds and charter planes. He reportedly remained the largest individual shareholder of the company. Snyder was 68. (TMZ)
