Inside Mandy Moore's Private Wedding Ceremony to Musician Taylor Goldsmith. Mandy Moore is officially a bride! E! News can confirm that the This Is Us star married Dawes musician Taylor Goldsmith in front of family and close friends Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. A source told E! News that the ceremony was "an intimate backyard wedding at Mandy's home that started just after sundown on Sunday evening." The private wedding ceremony comes after Mandy hinted to E! News that her ceremony wouldn't be an over-the-top affair. It seemed like a very convivial gathering. The source added, "There was a small group of family and friends that looked to be about 50 people." According to the insider, the look of the wedding was "very boho," which included "rugs on the floor surrounding the altar. The flower arrangements were beautiful with lots of large feathers." After the nuptials, guests then traveled to The Fig House, which is a private event space in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Some attendees include Minka Kelly, Wilmer Valderrama, Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown. According to another insider, there was a plethora of culinary options at the reception. The source said there was no formal dinner, but there were a "number of food stations around the venue, including meat, chicken, vegetarian, raw food, flat bread, cheese and charcuterie and more." The catering was all provided by Room Forty. Like many weddings, guests could also enjoy lots of drinks provided by Pharmacy, which involved "a whiskey station and lots of wine." So, what about the cake? Well, Mandy and Taylor went with something a bit more "non-traditional." The insider said, "They'll have 12 different kinds of cake for people to try." Yum! The groom himself also took a moment away from the dance floor to perform at the reception, along with Jackson Brown, Jonathan Rice, Blake Mills and Lenny Goldsmith. The Tangled star has hinted that her wedding would be something very under-the-radar and low key. "It's not going to be some lavish affair, its maybe something that isn't going to require as much planning or at least that's what I'm telling myself," she previously told E! News. "I picked a funny profession for someone who doesn't like all the attention focused on them so I've already done my girls weekend." Mandy continued, "It was sort of a birthday/bachelorette girls weekend all rolled into one and that was fabulous and fantastic so now I sort of feel like it could happen at a moment's notice. Maybe I won't even tell people and they'll just show up at the house and it will just unfold." Back in September 2017, Taylor proposed to the This Is Us star after dating for more than two years. Since then, the actress has been able to celebrate with her close friends on multiple occasions including an unforgettable road trip. Minka Kelly and This Is Us co-star Susan Kelechi Watson were just some of the ladies who traveled from Los Angeles to Ventana Big Sur. "We lived our best lives and I'm left blown away by my friends and our good fortune to be able to share these moments together," Mandy shared on Instagram. As for any talks of expanding her family, let's just say her experience of playing a mom on NBC's hit show has certainly opened her eyes to more possibilities. "The chapters have sort of lined up pretty perfectly," she previously told reporters at a TCA panel. "It's certainly good practice because I want to be a mom one day. Working with babies and kids and everything in between." For now, we'll simply say congratulations and here's to many years of happiness as husband and wife. (Eonline)

Surprise! Jessica Chastain Welcomed a Baby Girl 7 Months Ago. Jessica Chastain and her husband, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, are now the proud parents to a baby girl. E! News can confirm the couple welcomed the new family member via surrogate on Apr. 4. The bundle of joy, named Giulietta Chastain Passi, was born in L.A. Photos of Chastain carrying their daughter in a baby carrier while walking with her husband in New York City this week were posted online on Saturday. Last month, the notoriously private actress was also photographed pushing a stroller around the New York City set of her upcoming movie Eve. She wore a pair of blue jeans, a white T-shirt and a black coat, as well as a chic pair of black sunglasses. Giulietta was hidden from view by a light blanket and the stroller cover. This is the first child for Chastain and Moncler executive, who've been together for six years now. The happy news comes about four months after the pair celebrated their fairy tale wedding last June. Chastain has not commented on the birth of her child. Last year, the actress wed the fashion exec in Italy at the Villa Tiepolo Passi in Carbonera, the groom's family-owned estate in the Italian city of Treviso. For their Italian nuptials, the bride wore a beautiful lace gown and a veil, with her scarlett tresses pulled back. The wedding was attended by stars Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. Chastain previously dated writer and director Ned Benson, who wrote and directed the film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, which she actually starred in. At the time the film was made, she and Benson had already split, but Jessica still desired to create the story they collaborated on. "We broke up right before the beginning of 2011," she explained to Vulture in 2014. "And then the beautiful thing was just -- it's still love, it's just sometimes love changes, but it doesn't diminish." Congratulations to the happy family! (Eonline)

Dolly Parton Reveals Secrets of Her 52-Year-Long Marriage to Reclusive Husband Carl Thomas Dean. Dolly Parton is beloved for her sass and over-the-top personality, but there's one part of her colorful world she keeps carefully guarded: her 52-year-long marriage to Carl Thomas Dean. The country legend sat down with PEOPLE for its latest cover story and opened up exclusively about finding lasting love with Dean, who she met when she was just 18 years old. "I've been married for 53 years come next May, and my husband and I have a great relationship," says the star, 72. "We've been together most of our lives." Dean has long shunned the spotlight and never appears at public events with his superstar wife -- and that's just the way the couple likes it. "I always joke and laugh when people ask me what's the key to my long marriage and lasting love," says Parton, who recorded six new songs for the soundtrack of Dumplin', Netflix's upcoming film (starring Jennifer Aniston) about an overweight teen inspired by the "Jolene" singer. "I always say 'Stay gone!' and there's a lot of truth to that. I travel a lot, but we really enjoy each other when we're together and the little things we do." On her days off, Parton and Dean take mini trips in their "little camper" and have picnic lunches in the Tennessee countryside. They also forgo glamorous date nights for low-key dinners at their favorite local restaurants. "When I met my husband, he wanted to take me out to dinner. He pulled up to the drive-in window and got our food at McDonald's," recalls Parton about their early courtship. "We know a few little places we can go without being bothered. He only likes to go places where he can be comfortable!" And though Parton certainly loves to get dolled up -- "He knows I'm always going to kind of be fixed up for him because I don't believe in going home and being a slouch" -- she is most grateful that Dean sees her inner beauty. "He doesn't care what I wear as long as I'm happy," says Parton. "He loves me the way I am." Two years ago, the couple renewed their vows on their 50th anniversary at their "big ol' house" in Nashville. When the couple wed in 1966, they were forced to elope because Parton's record label preferred her to stay unwed. "We'd already sent out invitations and so I thought, 'I ain't waiting!' We went that same weekend to Ringgold, Georgia in a little church. I had a little white dress and little flowers, and my mom went with me." For their "beautiful ceremony" two years ago, Parton -- who is also executive producing an eight-part anthology series based on her music that's set to debut on Netflix next year -- finally got to wear the over-the-top wedding gown she had always dreamed of. "I never really felt like I had the wedding that we really wanted," she says. "He got all dressed up and I got all dressed up. Fifty years is a long time for anything, and I felt that we needed to do something to commemorate this. It's been a good 50 years and I don't know how many more years we'll have left." Though the couple never had children of their own, they have plenty of nieces to dote on and are also close with Parton's superstar goddaughter Miley Cyrus. The "I Will Always Love You" singer also loves children and donated her 100 millionth book earlier this year through her non-profit organization Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. "Now that I'm older, I realize I didn't have kids of my own, so everybody's kids could be mine," says Parton. "I [want to] empower children and give them confidence." By participating in the soundtrack for Dumplin', Parton hopes to inspire young women who may be struggling to find their place in the world. "I grew up in a very poor family with no material things," she says. "I had to claw and scratch my way through everything." Parton recorded new collaborations of some of her most popular songs for the Dumplin' soundtrack, with stars like Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples, Elle King, Alison Krauss and Rhonda Vincent. She and Linda Perry -- who wrote the film's score -- also co-wrote six original new compositions for the LP, out Nov. 30. Growing up with 11 siblings (including five sisters), the entertainer says she can relate to feeling lost like the teen (played by Danielle Macdonald) in Dumplin'. "With a big family like mine, as many sisters and nieces and my girlfriends, I can certainly relate to what girls go through in their young years and even in their adult years," she says. "It's not easy for anybody, but for young girls, it's good to inspire them and let them know that it's okay to be you." At the end of the day, Parton -- who says she will "never" retire -- just wants to continue making a difference in the world by spreading her message of love. "I believe that everyone should be able to love who they love how they love. Love is love," she says. "When I was younger, I used to wonder what my life would be like when I was older. I always wanted to do something to touch people, and I am grateful that I've seen my dreams come true." (People)

Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka Break Up 10 Months After Engagement. Paris Hilton won't be walking down the aisle anytime soon. E! News can confirm the heiress has ended her relationship with fiance Chris Zylka. "Paris broke up with Chris a few weeks ago," an insider can confirm. "Their relationship moved really quickly, and she realized he wasn't right for her. She wishes him well and hopes they can remain friends." Zylka proposed to the socialite in January 2018 during a romantic ski trip. At the time, he got down on one knee and presented her with a $2 million engagement ring. "So happy & excited to be engaged to the love of my life," Hilton wrote in an Instagram post at the time. "My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true! Thank you for showing me that fairytales do exist." While Hilton seemed to be in full wedding planning mode, fans suspected there could be trouble in paradise after the duo pushed back their wedding date earlier this year. Still, a source had told E! News the delay was due to their busy schedules. "Paris had her heart set on an 11/11 wedding. That was her dream date. But there's just too much to do and between her work and travel schedule, not enough time to do it," a source told E! News on Wednesday. "She is dead set on getting married so the wedding will happen. Just not as quickly as she had hoped. As of now, it's looking like a spring wedding instead." Another insider told E! News the two weren't acting like the couple when they were spotted at the Maddox Gallery event in October. "It was just awkward," the second source said. "No affection. He was holding her purse and talking to other people. She was talking to other people and seemed uninterested in engaging with him. They were there together but did not act like a couple." The two met an Oscars party eight years ago, but they didn't reconnect until 2015. It would be another two years before they made their relationship social media official. "I've never been surer of anything in my life," the former Simple Life star told E! News in 2017. "He's so incredible in every way. We've actually been friends for a really long time, like the past six years. We just now started being serious in the past few months and it's really just changed my life in so many ways and brought so much happiness to my life. I feel so safe and he's so special. We're best friends and we're together every minute. I don't know what else I could ask for. He's perfect for me." Sadly, this isn't the first time either star has ended an engagement. Hilton ended her engagements to Jason Shaw in 2003 and to Paris Latsis in 2005, while Zylka broke off his engagement to Hanna Beth in 2015. (TMZ)

Bob Barker was rushed to the hospital for the second time in 2 months, but it sounds like it's another case of a bad back ... TMZ has learned. The former "Price is Right" host was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital by ambulance Sunday afternoon after suffering severe back pain at his Hollywood Hills home. His manager tells us Bob is doing better now that he's under a doctor's care, and that this most recent hospitalization comes as a result of severe back pain related to his 2017 fall. He's fallen at least one other time before -- a 2015 spill that split his head open. We broke the story ... Bob was rushed to the ER this past October under similar circumstances. The 94-year-old was wheeled inside on a stretcher but seemed responsive. (TMZ)

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich -- who was scheduled to fight Paige VanZant in January -- was attacked in Hawaii and sources tell us it was so serious, she's being hospitalized for major injuries. Multiple sources tell TMZ Sports ... Ostovich was in Honolulu when the incident took place. Our sources tell us she's believed to have suffered a broken orbital bone. We're told Ostovich's attacker is someone close to her. If Ostovich did in fact suffer a broken bone in her face, it would almost certainly mean her January 19th fight with Paige VanZant at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn would be off. We've reached out to Rachael's camp for comment -- so far, no word back. 27-year-old Ostovich is a rising star in the sport -- and the fight with VanZant would undoubtedly be the biggest moment of her career. Story developing ... UPDATE: Honolulu police tell TMZ they have opened a felony domestic violence investigation. (TMZ)

Tekashi69, his recently fired manager and 2 other former associates are in federal custody after getting busted on racketeering charges -- which almost certainly means the rapper's going to prison ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us ... 6ix9ine was arrested Sunday night by ATF agents in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shottie, at the same time. You'll recall Tekashi had just fired Shottie and much of his management team last week. One of the other suspects arrested is Faheem Walter -- aka Crippy -- who got shot a few weeks ago during the altercation with Tekashi's record label head. All 4 men are facing racketeering and firearms charges. We're told the investigation was a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security. Tekashi was already skating on thin ice. As we reported, the judge who gave him probation in his child sex case had warned him to keep his nose clean ... or he'd be going straight to prison. Story developing ... (TMZ)
