"You might be wondering or asking, 'Carrie, why is your tour starting in May?' Well...yay! Mike and Isaiah and I are absolute over the moon and excited to be adding a little fish to our pond," Underwood said in a social media video, as the camera panned up to balloons spelling out B-A-B-Y. "This has been a dream come true with the album and baby news and all that stuff," she added. "We are just so excited and just so glad that you guys can share in this with us and be a part of this with us. I love you guys. We'll see you on the road in 2019. Have a great day!"

Gina Rodriguez Confirms Engagement to Joe LoCicero: "I'm Stuck With That Man for Life." Gina Rodriguez has confirmed her engagement to Joe LoCicero! Last week, the Jane the Virgin star hinted at the relationship update while celebrating her 34th birthday in Mexico with her beau of about two years. In social media posts, the Golden Globe winner could be seen wearing what appeared to be a new diamond ring, which sparked engagement speculation. "Oh, I'm stuck with that man for life, he made that so," Rodriguez confirmed to E! News on Tuesday. As for how actor and model LoCicero proposed, Rodriguez told us that she's keeping that story to herself for as long as she possibly can. "That I'm gonna keep to myself, that I don't think I'm gonna ever share that," Rodirguez said. "Because there's only so many things that you get to own when you become a public figure, because it's the blessing and the curse of it, you know?" "The blessing is that you get to do what you love every day and you have so many incredible people supporting you," Rodriguez continued. "But then the little curse is that nothing's a secret anymore, you don't get to hold anything to yourself. So I'm gonna hold that one for as long as I can." So has she started wedding planning? She told E! News she's "so far away" from that. Rodriguez laughed, "I'm like, maybe in-between this movie and that movie, maybe we can get married then?" The actress spoke to E! News on behalf of Feeding America to raise awareness about "period poverty" and the fact that nearly one in five American girls either leave school or miss it entirely because they don't have access to menstruation products. Feeding America is committed to help end period poverty with a $15 million product donation this school year. (Eonline)

She even has a nickname for herself: "Glamma." She wrote, "Just call me #Glamma #Proudmama." Fisher expressed joy for her daughter and the baby at the Environmental Media Awards when the mother-daughter duo stood at the podium together.

Congratulations again to baby Titan and Francesca! (Eonline)

Why Kathleen Turner Didn't Feel 'Welcomed' on 'Friends' Set and 3 More Truth Bombs. Costars Who Really Hated Each Other See which A-list actors made a bet over who'd bed her first back in the day -- and her "gross" interaction with Trump. Kathleen Turner's interview with Vulture began with her slamming Elizabeth Taylor's voice as "awful" and only got better from there. The "War of the Roses" star sat down for a lengthy chat with the outlet, where she spilled some '80s Hollywood secrets, dished on her unpleasant experience on the set of "Friends" and had some choice words for Donald Trump, Nicolas Cage and Burt Reynolds. Turner played Chandler Bing's (Matthew Perry) transgender father on the show, appearing in just three episodes of the sitcom, but it wasn't something she looked back on fondly. "I didn't feel very welcomed by the cast," she recalled. "I remember I was wearing this difficult sequined gown -- and my high heels were absolutely killing me. I found it odd that none of the actors thought to offer me a seat. Finally, it was one of the older crew members that said, 'Get Miss Turner a chair.'" "The 'Friends' actors were such a clique -- but I don't think my experience with them was unique," she continued. "I think it was simply that they were such a tight little group that nobody from the outside mattered." She added that she did "respect the camaraderie they had," which she said was also apparent on screen. Burt Reynolds threw some shade towards Turner on "Watch What Happens Live" earlier this year, calling her the most overrated actor of the '70s and '80s and admitting the two didn't get along when they worked on the 1988 movie "Switching Channels." From her new interview, it's clear they both feel the same way. "Working with Burt Reynolds was terrible. The first day Burt came in he made me cry. He said something about not taking second place to a woman. His behavior was shocking," she said. "It never occurred to me that I wasn't someone's equal. I left the room sobbing. I called my husband and said, 'I don't know what to do.' He said, 'You just do the job.' It got to be very hostile because the crew began taking sides. But as for the performance, I was able to put the negativity aside. I'm not convinced Burt was." She also said Nicolas Cage was "very difficult" on the set of "Peggy Sue Got Married," which was directed by the actor's uncle, Francis Ford Coppola. Turner was asked whether she ever crossed paths with POTUS back in the '80s and he certainly didn't leave a good impression. "Yes. Yuck. He has this gross handshake," she answered. "He goes to shake your hand and with his index finger kind of rubs the inside of your wrist," she added. "He's trying to do some kind of seductive intimacy move. You pull your hand away and go yuck." That was it ... but yeah, yuck indeed. After the release of the 1981 film "Body Heat," Turner had all eyes on her -- including those belonging to Michael Douglas, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson. "I understood later, from Michael Douglas, that there was a competition between him and Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty about who would get me first," she said. She added that she didn't like "being thought of as a trophy," adding that "there was an unspoken assumption that women were property to be claimed." As for whether any of them won the sexist bet: ""None of them did, by the by." (Too Fab)

Matthew Perry Recovering From Gastrointestinal Surgery. Matthew Perry is on the mend after undergoing gastrointestinal surgery. The actor's rep confirmed to E! News the actor had "recently underwent surgery in a Los Angeles hospital to repair a gastrointestinal perforation." His rep says, "He is grateful for the concern and asks for continued privacy as he heals." A gastrointestinal perforation occurs when a hole develops in the lining of the throat to rectum area and can be caused by various factors like Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and appendicitis, according to the Mayo Clinic. In 2015, the actor spoke candidly about his struggles with alcohol abuse, which can contribute to digestive health issues. He has since opened his own sober-living facility named Perry House, after learning firsthand that "getting sober is a really hard thing to do." "I've had a lot of ups and downs in my life and a lot of wonderful accolades," he said, "but the best thing about me is that if an alcoholic comes up to me and says, 'Will you help me stop drinking?' I will say, 'Yes. I know how to do that.'" Most recently the Friends star visited Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and dished on the one plot he made the show writers nix. "There was a storyline on Friends where Chandler went to a male strip joint because he really liked the sandwiches," which Perry didn't exactly enjoy the idea of. So, he leveraged his star power and got them to drop the idea. We wish Matthew a speedy recovery! (Eonline)

Ariana Grande Injures Herself While Filming "Carpool Karaoke" With James Corden. Ariana Grande shed blood, sweat and tears for her and James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" segment. (Seriously!) The pop star injured her hand while filming the wildly popular sketch for The Late Late Show on Tuesday, but don't worry Arianators -- she's expected to make a full recovery and even poked fun at the wound with several posts on social media. "Well Mr. Corden, today is off to a wild start," Grande said in a video posted to her Instagram Stories. In another selfie, the "No Tears Left to Cry" songstress called herself an "idiot" while posing with her bandaged hand. It's unclear what caused Ariana's apparent abrasion, which didn't get her down for a second. The 25-year-old said she "never had more fun" participating in "Carpool Karaoke," tweeting, "That was the best day ever @JKCorden thank you so much to you and your incredible crew and band and writers ! sm fun. can't wait for y'all to seeeee what we been up to." Corden agreed, adding, "This has made my day. The #CarpoolKaraoke we just shot might be one of my favorite ever! I can't wait for you to see it. @ArianaGrande is the real deal." The late-night host previously teased the collab by posting photos of the lyrics to Ariana's newest hits "God Is a Woman" and "No Tears Left to Cry." In just three days, Ariana will release her fourth studio album, Sweetener. Feel better soon, Ariana! (Eonline)

Pink Gets Discharged From the Hospital -- and Gives the Paparazzi a Warning. After being treated for a gastric virus earlier this week, Pink has been discharged from the hospital. The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday to give her fans a health update and thank "all of the kind people out there" for their well-wishes and support. It certainly hasn't been the easiest time for Pink. Last week, the singer postponed her Aug. 3 concert at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena due to an "upper respiratory infection." Unfortunately, her health continued to decline. On Monday Aug. 6, Live Nation revealed Pink had been hospitalized for dehydration. While she was treated and dismissed, she was then readmitted for her gastric virus diagnosis. The "Who Knew" artist explained she had "absolutely" planned to perform Monday night as part of her Beautiful Trauma Tour; however, she was "rushed to the hospital in excruciating pain" about 20 minutes before leaving for her soundcheck. "That was the reason for the late cancellation," Pink explained. "It was out of anyone's control and, of course, wasn't planned that way." Since being discharged from the hospital, Pink has been "following doctors orders of liquids and rest." The "Just Like Fire" singer explained she needs to follow their instructions to be well enough to perform the stunts in her show. "A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don't just stand in front a microphone and sing," she wrote. "I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total sh-t show of awesomeness (no pun intended). Therefore, I need to be physically healthy and well in order to perform this show. I think all of you deserve the full show and me at my best." Pink informed her fans she will return to the stage on Saturday. Live Nation has also rescheduled her postponed tour dates. Until then, the singer will be lying low -- "drinking green tea and spending time with my kids." She also had a few words for the local paparazzi, who accused the singer of canceling her show to relax on the beach after her first postponed show. "That's a warning to paparazzi," she wrote. "You might actually see me walking upright outside of my hotel room cage with two little children, and another warning: I might even smile. Not too much, though. I'll try to control the smiling." Near the end of the post, Pink apologized to "any of the ticket holders" affected. "Thank you for your patience, compassion, and support," she wrote. "I look forward to rocking out with all of you as we have done for many many years." She then closed out her post by giving a shout-out to the "amazing doctors and nurses at St. Vincent's Hospital for taking such good care of me and getting me home to my kids." Feel better, Pink!

Angelina Jolie is continuing her campaign to smear Brad Pitt by alleging he stiffed her on child support ... so claim sources who say Brad has coughed up millions of dollars for the kids since the couple split. Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, he and Angelina did have an informal agreement -- as she claimed in the docs she filed Tuesday -- but he has given her "way, way more" than the amount he agreed to pay ... we're told the total is in the millions of dollars. Angelina claims in her legal docs, since their split nearly 2 years ago, Brad has not paid "meaningful child support." Our sources call that "a joke," and the proof will surface. TMZ broke the story ... Angelina's lawyer, Laura Wasser, is quitting the case because Angelina has become so vengeful it's been impossible to represent her. Two new lawyers have joined the case ... presumably so Wasser can make an easy exit. (TMZ)

Brad Pitt claims he's paid Angelina Jolie more than $9M since split. Brad Pitt has fought back in court against Angelina Jolie's claim that he's a deadbeat dad. On Tuesday, Jolie claimed in court papers that her ex had not paid "meaningful child support" for their six kids since their 2016 split. And on Wednesday Pitt filed his own papers calling Jolie's claim "a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage." In the papers lodged with LA Superior Court, Pitt's lawyers said that he "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support." In fact, they claim in the papers, Pitt has "previously loaned [Jolie] $8 million to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid $1.3 million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children."

'OITNB' star Brad Henke doesn't legally have to stay away from his ex-fiancee anymore, 'cause her temporary restraining order against him was thrown out by a judge. According to court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- neither Henke nor his ex, Simone Toliver, showed up to a recent hearing regarding the restraining order she got against him this past May ... so the case was dismissed. We broke the story ... Toliver got the TRO after claiming Henke had repeatedly threatened her after they split last year. She claimed he'd violently grabbed her on at least two occasions, among other things. A judge granted her 100 yards of protection at the time. Sources close to Henke tell TMZ he didn't show because he never even knew Simone had gotten a restraining order against him ... claiming he was never served with papers. All's well that ends well (we think). Brad's character seems to be back for season 6, which just dropped on Netflix. And, he's got a ton of other projects in the works. (TMZ)

Shaun Weiss -- who played Goldberg in "The Mighty Ducks" -- has been in a downward spiral for years, according to a longtime friend who is worried about the former child star's fate. The friend, Marni Gairhan, has known Shaun for more than 13 years, and she tells us Weiss has battled substance abuse issues and picked the wrong crowd to hang with for way too long. Following Shaun's public intoxication bust over the weekend, friends of the actor feel it's time to push him towards rehab. They fear for Shaun's life and believe he's hit rock bottom -- as his mug shot clearly shows. Shaun's downward spiral dates back to the death of his father 3 years ago, Marni says. Since then, Weiss has been arrested for possession of meth and sentenced to 150 days in jail for stealing -- on top of last weekend's trip to the drunk tank. Shaun found steady work after the 3 'Ducks' movies, but it's been a couple of years since his last acting gig. He would tell friends he was working on different projects, but no one ever saw the finished products. After finding Shaun sleeping on her porch one-night last year, Marni decided it was time to contact his niece. Weiss didn't like that, Marni says, and he began to distance himself from his friends. We reached out to Shaun's niece, but so far no word back. (TMZ)

We've reached out to Leo who tells us he's unaware of the new allegations.

We reached out to Universal and a spokesperson tells TMZ, "We are aware of the situation and have taken appropriate actions while the matter is under investigation." (TMZ)
