Danielle Fishel Is Pregnant, Expecting a Baby Boy in July. Two months after getting married, Danielle Fishel announced today she is pregnant. Sharing a picture of three pairs of tennis shoes -- including baby Nikes -- the actress wrote on Instagram, "I'm eating for two. I'm napping with wild abandon. Baby shoes. Baby clothes. (I'm shopping). I'm nesting. I'm reading books. I'm madly in love with my husband. I cry at commercials. I'm a walking cliche. I've got baby apps. I'm confident. I feel inadequate. I'm showing one day and the next I'm not. I'm nervous. I'm excited. He's due in July. We can't wait." This will be the first child for Fishel and Jensen Karp, who later commented on the Boy Meets World star's picture, writing, "This post is better than mine. Love you. Let's name him Jordan." Karp also joked about his wife's pregnancy on his on Instagram account. "GUYS. We're having a baby boy," he wrote. "Couldn't be more excited to raise a sweet little dumpling with @daniellefishel. Even though we used one of those websites and found out it will look like the monster in the next photo..." Showing she shares his sense of humor, the mom-to-be left a comment on his post, writing, "I can't wait to raise that little monster in a baby body with you." After Fishel's blogger friend Kelly Rizzo joked she can help with the "eating for two part," the actress wrote back, "Please! Jensen's worried about gaining wait and I need a partner in crime." After sharing the news with their followers, a wave of congratulatory messages rolled in by the second. "I couldn't be more excited. I love you both very much. I'll help as much as you need but you can juggle 744,886 things at once so maybe you won't need help," actress Angela Trimbur told Fishel, adding, "But also, I'm here." Feeling grateful, Fishel replied, "We'll need your enormous heart to love him to pieces because everyone who has your love is special." Actor August Maturo, who played Fishel's son on Disney Channel's Girl Meets World, was just as tickled. "Your TV son is so happy you are getting a real-life son. You are going to be the greatest mom EVER, and I should know!" he said. "Congratulations to you and @jensenclan88." Congratulations to the happy couple! (Eonline)

Fourth Child on the Way for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. There's a new little one heading West! Kanye and Kim Kardashian West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate, PEOPLE has confirmed. The baby on the way will join big siblings Chicago, 11 months, Saint, 3, and North, 5. Although Kardashian West has made it clear that she loves being a mother, in August, a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source told PEOPLE that the 38-year-old reality star and rapper West, 41, weren't "in a huge rush" to give their three children another sibling. "They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure," said the insider, adding of the couple's then-7-month-old daughter, who was the only one of their children to be born via gestational surrogate, "Chicago is still little, and they have time." "They don't seem to be in a huge rush," the source further revealed. "They would use the same surrogate if she agrees to help them again. Kim can't say enough kind words about the surrogate." A second insider told PEOPLE, "Kim and Kanye were already talking about baby No. 4 when Chicago was just a couple of days old. And they absolutely would use the surrogate again. They love her." Kardashian West herself has expressed similar thoughts. As she said in an August interview with E! News after being asked if she and her husband were planning for a fourth child, "I don't know. I read something that it was, you know -- none of that was true." "But I've been really open about it and talked about it on our show, so I don't know," the KKW Beauty guru also told the outlet. "We start filming season 16 next week, so if I think about it more and it's gonna happen, you'll definitely see it on the show. But as of now, no." In October, Kardashian West revealed that daughter North is a little apprehensive about her existing siblings, admitting that her oldest "acts like an only child at all times" and is "a little confused" about her family dynamic. "She's beyond jealousy now. She's just like, 'It's my world,' " the reality star said on Ashley Graham's podcast Pretty Big Deal. "She said to me the other day, 'Mom ... we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone ... so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house.'" Though Kardashian West has been candid about her fears surrounding surrogacy and how she thinks it "is so much harder" than pregnancy, she opened up in May about how it ultimately was an overwhelmingly positive experience. "I would have maybe one more [child]," she admitted. "I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process. I will say, when it came to the breastfeeding time, I was like, 'Okay, this is the best decision I ever made.'" "It's a game changer, having to not go through [nursing] every few hours," explained the soon-to-be mother of four. "I can spend so much more time with the older kids and getting them used to the baby." (People)

The View's Abby Huntsman Is Pregnant With Twins. Abby Huntsman has some breaking news of her own: she's pregnant with twins! The View co-host is expecting a boy and a girl this year with husband of nine years, Jeffrey Livingston, she announced on The View on Wednesday. They are also parents to daughter Isabel Grace, whom they welcomed in November 2017. "Everyone at this table has been so supportive," she complimented her colleagues live on television. As the TV anchor explained to People, this pregnancy did not kick off with the smoothest of stars. "I was actually worried that something was wrong with this pregnancy because I felt sick immediately," she told the magazine. "Now, looking back, it makes sense, because I think the hormones were triple what they would normally be." Naturally, having twins was a bit of a shock -- especially for her husband. "When the doctor told us [it was twins], my husband fainted, which was just classic," she revealed to the magazine. "I think he saw two sacs in there and I could see it on his face. He turned white, and then when the doctor told us, he fell. Another doctor had to come in, and they were wiping him down with towels and giving him sugar," the future mother of three described. "I was sitting there with my feet still in the straps. I'm like, 'This is ridiculous. I'm the one that has to physically do this.'" Of course, Huntsman has some concerns. Guys, we're gonna have three kids under 18 months in our apartment in New York City," she quipped on the show. Nevertheless, she has the support of her fellow View ladies. "You're gonna be such an incredible mother to these two babies," colleague and friend Meghan McCain assured her. Congratulations to the future family of five! People was first to report the exciting baby news. (Eonline)

Toni Braxton and Birdman Break Up: "It's Over..." There's still time for Birdman to un-break Toni Braxton's heart. It looks as if the power couple has called off their upcoming wedding, based on their latest social media updates. Speculation ramped up when Birdman updated his Instagram Story, writing, "It's over..." He later deleted the post and scrubbed his entire account clean. Similarly, Braxton removed every picture from her Instagram account. The 51-year-old "Long as I Live" singer then posted a single picture of herself in a red dress, writing, "Starting a new chapter isn't always an easy choice...but ALWAYS choose to be chosen. Cheers to a new year." E! News has reached out to reps for Birdman and Braxton for comment. Fans also noticed Birdman and Braxton no longer follow each other on Instagram. Ten months ago, the rapper said Braxton was his ride or die. "T, that's my girl, my friend, my family," the rapper said. "That's my love, my soldier, my life... She's my life. I love her to death." Engaged since February, the two musicians had been friends for "17 years," according to Braxton. In November, she said she was planning a "vintage '20s and '30s-like Great Gatsby-themed" wedding and told Wendy Williams there was a 70 percent chance they'd be married by the end of 2018. "We almost had a date," the singer revealed. "Well, we had two dates. But we were doing Braxton Family Values and we were going through a little drama. And I was like, 'The wedding is a good thing to get all the sisters together.' [But] I couldn't get us all together." Flashing her $5 million engagement ring, Braxton said, "He did good, right?" Sadly, Braxton lost the ring weeks after her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. Braxton previously revealed on E!'s Daily Pop that Birdman told her to pick a wedding date ASAP, explaining, "We have to get married before the year is out. He said, 'Before next year.'" Birdman wanted to get married in California, she said, but it wasn't a sticking point. "He said that we can go through a drive-thru," she said. "I'm like, 'What are we gonna order, fries?' No." "You're supposed to set a date and stick to it," the bride-to-be said in an August episode of Braxton Family Values. "But unfortunately, in our business, it can be challenging sometimes." This would have been the first marriage for Birdman and the second Braxton. (Eonline)

In 2018, Ariana Grande endured enough relationship drama to last her a lifetime, it seems. On New Year's Day, the 26-year-old pop star joked with a fan about her dating life on Twitter -- first by responding to a tweet that included a picture of an article titled, "Who is Ariana Dating NOW?!" with, "Can they tell me too?" Then, when the fan joked in response, "Spoiler. It's me!" Grande answered, "Spoiler for the rest of this year / probably my life: it's no one. please refer back to this tweet for future questions." The "Breathing" singer also added a black heart emoji. In May 2018, Grande ended her relationship with the rapper Mac Miller after two years together. Shortly after the pair split, Grande and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, 25, began dating. They were engaged less than two months later. A few months later, Miller was found dead at age 26 in September after an accidental overdose. As Grande mourned the death of her ex, her whirlwind romance with Davidson also ended, with the pair calling off their engagement in October. While accepting Billboard's Woman of the Year award earlier this month, Grande struggled to hold back tears as she touched upon her very tumultuous year. "I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life," she said. "I'm not saying that for sympathy, I'm just saying that because I think a lot of people would look at someone in my position right now... and think, 'She's really got her s -- together,' Ya know? Like, 'She's really on it.' Like, 'She's got it all.' " Grande continued: "I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f -- I'm doing so yeah, it's been a very conflicting one." The Nickelodeon alum has also been romantically linked to rapper Big Sean and her former back-up dancer Ricky Alvarez. She references both at the beginning of her recent hit single, "Thank U, Next."

Tiffany Haddish Speaks Out After Her New Year's Eve Show Flops. Tiffany Haddish has heard her fans loud and clear. The comedian came under fire after her New Year's Eve show flopped so hard with the audience, attendees reportedly walked out. After taking the stage at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, it eventually became clear the Emmy winner was having a rocky night. "This is weird for me," the 39-year-old acknowledged. "Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever." "Every day ain't the best day, but we do what we do," she said, according to a video published by TMZ. "It is what it is." Haddish added, "This will probably be the only time you will ever see me like this because I'm never doing this again...I will never allow myself to be this woe the f -- k out." The star eventually took a swig from a bottle before handing it back into the audience. Earlier in the day, Haddish promoted the show while simultaneously revealing she had partied into the morning. "Went to bed at 7," she told fans in an Instagram video. "Ciroc is still in my system." Whatever the case, the comedian couldn't avoid the negative press that ensued. In response to The Root's article about her performance, Haddish tweeted, "Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami." As she concluded, "I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened again." Some fellow celebrities, like Questlove, publicly comforted the star. "Failure is a part of growth and lessons get learned," he tweeted to Haddish. "The crowd will speak on this night forever so they had an experience, and you are the wiser. Not end of world. You'll shine more in 2019." (Eonline)

David Spade has some words of encouragement for Tiffany Haddish AND Louis C.K. and David makes it clear ... they're not in the same boat. We got the longtime comedian leaving Nobu Tuesday night in WeHo where, at first, he weighed in on what had happened to Tiffany on New Year's Eve in Miami -- namely, miserably bombing onstage and cracking open some Ciroc to numb the pain. He says NYE gigs are tough as it is 'cause everyone's already faded, and a night of partying for the comic themselves probably ain't the best idea if ya mix the two. Remember, Tiff had said earlier in the day that she'd been out all-night raging before her set. Then, Dave pivots to Louis ... saying comics always try new material with smaller crowds that aren't necessarily meant to be heard worldwide. David sidesteps Louis' jokes -- like the Parkland massacre survivors -- he realized it's a hot potato. It's worth noting ... Tiffany's tough night and Louis' tough night are dissimilar. (TMZ)

Jackass Star Bam Margera Checks Back Into Rehab. Bam Margera is committed to improving his life in the New Year. On Monday, the 39-year-old pro skateboarder and Jackass star announced he is going back to rehab. "Off to alcohol rehab for the 3rd time," he captioned a shot of himself holding his 1-year-old son, whom he shares with wife Nicole Boyd. "I am hoping the term 3rd time is a charm is true." In a separate post, Margera thanked sober coach Bob Marier, interventionist Tim Ryan, skateboarder Johnny Schillereff and Jackass stars Johnny Knoxville, Brandon Novak and Steve-O "for the treatment." Novak also published a picture of himself hugging Margera, writing, "The only time we FAIL is when we lose the ability to TRY AGAIN.......happy New Years." Steve-O commented on Margera's second post, writing, "We love you, brother." Boyd also praised her husband, writing in an Instagram caption, "I'm truly so proud of you honey bear." The reality star's decision to re-enter rehab comes a year after his last stint in treatment; at the time, he decided to get help after being arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in L.A. Margera has been open about his alcoholism for years. In a 2017 interview with Vice's Munchies, for example, he described the darkest period of his life. "At its worst, I would probably just wake up around 11 a.m. and instantly start drinking vodka and purple Gatorade; by the end of the night, I would probably have 10 pints worth of it. It was pretty bad," he said. "It was weird, because there would be times where I would go on a three-day bender of drinking and then five days of not drinking. When that five days ended, I would go on a two-day bender." Of course, Margera has his fare share of regrets. "I think I drank everyday for three years straight and I wasted a lot of time and I probably would be a better skateboarder right now if I hadn't," he said. "I spent a year re-learning all my tricks instead of learning new ones." The former MTV star added it "helps" to have people like Novak on his side, as he's also sober. That same year, Margera told Jenkem that staying sober was harder than he'd imagined. "I never had any pill problems and I've never tried heroin in my life, but it's been a real struggle for me to stay off the alcohol. But just as long you're surrounded by good people and you have something to do, you'll be good," he told the magazine. "Like in Barcelona, I wake up and my mission is to skate all day. I know being in Spain is the best place for me right now to not drink." (Eonline)

Lil Xan has one less thing to stress about as he completes rehab treatments ... because we've learned Xan and the St. Louis rapper who threatened him with gun violence are putting their beef behind them. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the criminal investigation into a series of threats against Xan is now closed. We're told Xan's camp and VladHQ had a sit-down ... and afterward informed police there was no desire to pursue criminal charges. We broke the story ... VladHQ posted a disturbing video threatening Xan before an October performance in St. Louis. He also posted a pic of himself armed and threatened he would show up at the concert -- and that prompted the venue and promoters to cancel the show. At the time, we were told the feud was over money. Sources close to the situation tell us ... Xan's associates told Vlad he was taking the wrong approach to settle their differences. Once Vlad made it clear he understood ... both sides agreed to squash the beef. Win, win for both men -- after all, Xan has more immediate issues on his plate. (TMZ)

A man suspected of burglarizing celebrity and high-end homes -- including Usher's -- has been nabbed by police, who found lots of stolen property worth millions ...TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us cops have arrested a guy who they believe burglarized the R&B singer this past March ... when upwards of $800k worth of property was reportedly taken. We're told police searched the suspect's home with a warrant and discovered more than 2,000 items valued at over $2 million, some of which included Usher's belongings. We're told other items belonging to a 'Real Housewives' star were also discovered, but it's unclear for now which housewife it might've been. Our sources also tell us that during the investigation, cops learned the suspect had told family members he stumbled on his newfound wealth by doing well in the stock market. As for how this guy would allegedly go about the break-ins ... we're told cops discovered in their investigation that he would go to open houses at homes on the market, scope the place out, and then return at a later time to burgle the home. FWIW, our law enforcement sources tell us this suspect is not tied to the big bust from earlier last year, in which police charged multiple suspects for allegedly burglarizing the homes of stars like Rihanna, Yasiel Puig, Viola Davis and others.

Another adds, "I need you to come immediately ... we need an ambulance and a fire rescue here immediately!" Another witness tells dispatch, "There's a fight going on out here ... there's a fistfight that's been going on now!" 23-year-old Nicholson -- 6'2", 215 lbs -- was arrested and booked for assault and battery, and drunk in public.

A male model alleging photographer Bruce Weber solicited him for sex is a total hypocrite ... according to new legal docs filed by the photog. As we reported ... models Jason Boyce and Mark Ricketson claimed in December 2017 Weber forced them to touch their genitals during a photo shoot. According to new docs, Boyce now wants to tack on a sex trafficking claim -- alleging Weber lured him in for a meeting for the purpose of committing an illegal sex act. Weber's calling BS and claims it was the other way around. The photographer claims Boyce and his agents initiated the contact with him by sending a series of text messages for years including "pornographic poses in a desperate attempt to get Mr. Weber's attention." This includes a nude shot in 2014 from Boyce's agent ... and several others. Weber claims when he didn't respond to the texts, the model would be persistent and send more salacious pics himself "in a blatant attempt to be sexual, posing and bending shirtless in a manner to emphasize his genitals." Weber suggests the series of texts prove he was the one being solicited ... and he wants Boyce's sex trafficking allegations dropped from his lawsuit. (TMZ)
