Jersey Shore's Deena Cortese Gives Birth to a Baby Boy. Three fist pumps for Deena Cortese! She's officially a mama. The Jersey Shore star has given birth to a baby boy named Christopher John. This marks her and husband Christopher Buckner's first child together. Deena gave birth to their little boy on Jan. 5. Denna announced the news on Instagram when she shared a sweet video of their baby boy yawning and sleeping. "Our Little Man has finally arrived. Christopher John Buckner (CJ) born January 5th at 4:41 pm at a whopping 20.5 inches.6 Lb. 8.5 ounces," she captioned it. "Uhg mommy and daddy love you so much CJ .. youre our everything. i never thought i could love Chris anymore than i did until i saw him hold CJ." The reality star often posted that yes, she was still pregnant, even after not posting updates after a few days. "CJ is just super comfy in mommys uterus," she wrote on Dec. 29. Aside from naming their son after his proud pops, Christopher's middle name is remarkably special to Deena. John was the name of her father, who passed away in 2016 after a battle with leukemia. Deena and Christopher welcomed their bundle of joy into the world a little over a year after they tied the knot in their native Jersey. Several members of Deena's Jersey Shore family, including Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenny "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, DJ Pauly D and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, were present for the lavish wedding ceremony. The longtime lovebirds wasted no time in embarking on the next chapter of their lives, announcing Deena's pregnancy in July 2018. "We are truly blessed and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness," Deena gushed on social media at the time. "December can't come soon enough! Daddy and Mommy can't wait to meet you Christopher John you are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!" Last month, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola (who infamously skipped out on appearing in the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation reboot) reunited with her former co-stars for Deena's baby shower. And as her due date approached, Deena kept fans updated on how excited she was to become a mom. "In only 4 weeks we'll be welcoming a little boy into this world," she captioned a photo from the maternity photoshoot. "Already being the crazy mom I know I'm going to be and because this is our first pregnancy and because pregnancy is a blessing, I wanted to make a special memory with my husband and baby bump." Congratulations to Deena and Christopher! (Eonline)

Conor McGregor left the hospital with his SECOND CHILD -- after his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, gave birth to their new baby! The UFC superstar posted a photo with the new baby and his older boy, Conor Jr., with the caption, "Heading home with my two healthy babies and an energized and healthy SuperMam." He added, "2019 is off to the best start! Thank you for the well wishes everybody!" No word on the name or the sex of the newest McGregor family member. We'll update as soon as we find out. McGregor's celebrity friends are already reaching out -- The Rock posted a message saying, "Ohana! Congrats brother!!" Hopefully, Conor had a driver waiting for him outside of the hospital because his driver's license is still suspended in Ireland stemming from a 2017 traffic stop. As we previously reported, McGregor pled guilty in November to going 95 in a 60 in a blue Range Rover. His license was suspended for 6 months and he was hit with a $1,100 fine. Conor's oldest child, Conor Jr., was born on May 5, 2017 -- a few months before Conor Sr. got in the boxing ring and fought Floyd Mayweather. Conor obviously lost that bout -- but reportedly made around $100 MILLION. Conor Sr. is already training his little boy how to fight -- recently posting footage of Conor Jr. hitting the mitts. (TMZ)

Rami Malek confirms romance with 'Bohemian Rhapsody' co-star Lucy Boynton. Rami Malek has officially found somebody to love. Malek, 37, who took on the role as Queen's Freddie Mercury in the film "Bohemian Rhapsody," confirmed the rumors that he's been dating his co-star Lucy Boynton during an acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. "I'm just really honored to be here, so thank you to the Palm Springs Film Festival. It's a privilege, it's not lost on me and I'm so appreciative," he said while accepting the Breakthrough Artist Award, according to Us Weekly. He concluded by saying, "Thank you, Lucy Boynton. You have been my ally, my confidant, my love. Thank you so much." Malek and Boynton, 24, sparked dating rumors while filming in 2017 after a fan Instagram account caught a cute snap of the two looking flirty. Boynton played Mary Austin, who inspired Mercury's song "Love of My Life." "He is so into her. He goes and visits her in London all the time," the magazine confirmed last spring. (PageSix)

Cardi B and Offset are putting the drama of 2018 behind them and turning over a new leaf in the new year ... and their friends are confident they'll be rock solid again soon. Sources close to the hip-hop couple tell TMZ ... they've been communicating regularly -- including while they were thousands of miles apart over the holidays -- and are focusing on fixing their marriage. We're told Offset's vowing to change his ways and be faithful and honest with her, and Cardi's been receptive ... because she misses what they had together. Cardi's still not wearing her wedding ring ... but not because she's acting like she's single. We're told she's just not emotionally ready to put it back on quite yet. We broke the story ... the 2 looked like they'd reconciled shortly before Christmas on a fun-filled, jet ski-riding, Puerto Rican vacation -- and they admittedly miss each other ... at least, sexually. They were apart for New Year's, though, because she was touring Down Under, and he was with Migos in Miami ... but it seems like they're always on each other's minds. (TMZ)

Rosario Dawson spotted at the movies with Cory Booker. Sen. Cory Booker, the presidential wannabe with no first lady, took actress Rosario Dawson to the movies on Thursday night. The New Jersey Democrat, 49, was spotted with Dawson, 39, at Regal Union Square, around 9:30 p.m. "He literally almost ran me over when he was racing around the corner to get to the concession stand before the movie started," my source said. Reps for both parties didn't get back to me to say which movie they saw. The politically active Dawson has known Booker for years. The actress supported Sen. Bernie Sanders in 2016 and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Booker, who has never been married, has been linked to Chanda Gibson, executive director of the Council of Urban Professionals, as well as CBS morning anchor Gayle King and poet Cleo Wade. (PageSix)

Kendra Wilkinson's having a hard time getting officially divorced ... and it's kinda her fault. According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Kendra and her estranged husband, Hank Baskett, are STILL officially married after the divorce judgment docs she submitted were rejected by the court for yet another error. In the docs addressed to Kendra, the court clerk writes it must reject the judgment for the following reason -- which was bolded, underlined and enlarged -- "Please make sure the forms you submit have the correct case number, the full case number should be on all forms in the appropriate place, please check each form prior to submission to court." As we first reported ... the same thing happened back in November when the court rejected the docs after the wrong jurisdiction date was entered and Kendra forgot to check a required box. Worth noting ... Kendra -- who filed for divorce last April -- filed the faulty papers each time, but Hank bares responsibility too, since he also signed the docs. Breaking up is hard to do ... but especially hard for these 2. (TMZ)

"Deadliest Catch" star Neal Hillstrand is getting his family fishing vessel dragged into his divorce proceedings with his wife ... but this story doesn't have anything to do with tugboats. According to divorce docs, obtained by TMZ, Neal agreed to fork over $10,000 to his estranged wife, Sugayle Marie Hillstrand, if he and his brothers ever sell their boat. The docs show Neil has one-third ownership in "Time Bandit" -- along with his brothers, Captains Johnathan and Andy -- and he's bound to cut a check to his ex if his family ever unloads the fishing boat made famous in Discovery's reality TV series. As best we can tell, "Time Bandit" is currently not up for sale. Neil filed for divorce Oct. 29, and docs show he gets the former couple's $340,000 house, plus a 1969 Chevy Malibu. She gets their 2 SUVs, a 2012 Sierra and 2006 Envoy. As part of the divorce, Neil already paid his ex $15k in November and will shell out $1,500 per month over the next 6 months. But, the biggest catch in this divorce is the boat. (TMZ)

Boxing star Adrien Broner has a busy Monday -- he's got dates in TWO courtrooms in TWO states to face TWO separate allegations of sexual misconduct, TMZ Sports has learned. ... and it's all going down just TWO weeks before his mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao. Here's the deal ... Broner was arrested back in February in Atlanta for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a local shopping mall. Cops say he groped her against her will. Just 4 months later, Broner was arrested again in Cleveland for allegedly throwing himself on top of a woman at a nightclub and forcing her to kiss him. He's facing multiple felony counts including gross sexual imposition and abduction. As fate would have it ... both cases have been scheduled for January 7 -- and since he can't be in two places at once, he's gotta decide which hearing he wants to attend. We've learned Broner is planning on sending a lawyer in his place to Ohio -- where he's not required to attend the hearing in person. Does that mean he'll be in Atlanta instead? Broner has a habit of blowing off court cases ... so, no one really knows where he'll be. Adrien is facing 5 separate charges for the two incidents ... and if he's convicted on all counts -- he could go to jail for NINE years. The craziest part of the story -- Broner also has a court date in Florida on Jan. 23 stemming from his arrest for failure to appear in court earlier this month for traffic violations. In between it all ... Broner's massive fight with Pacquiao is set for Jan. 19 in Las Vegas. (TMZ)

Early Doucet -- a former superstar LSU wide-receiver-turned-NFL-draft-pick -- was hit with a temporary restraining order in November after allegedly brutalizing his wife for the second time. TMZ Sports has obtained court docs filed in Louisiana which show the 33-year-old was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from the alleged victim and her 2 children after an incident in which Doucet allegedly attacked the woman and smashed up their home. The accuser told officials Doucet physically assaulted her in early November -- causing bloody injuries to her face and chest. She also claims Doucet smashed holes in the door and walls. The judge set a follow-up hearing for December where both sides could tell their side of the story -- but no word yet on if the judge has extended the restraining order. We do know it's the second time the accuser has gone to authorities with violent allegations against Doucet. We've also obtained a police report from April 2017 showing Doucet named as the suspect for assaulting the same woman, who he was dating at the time. Police took photos which show the woman bloodied and bruised and missing a tooth. Cops' photos of Doucet's hands show bloody knuckles. We've reached out to officials to find out what happened with that case -- so far, no word back. We've also reached out to Doucet for comment but have not heard back. Doucet was a key part of the 2007 LSU national championship team. He caught 7 passes for 51 yards and a TD in the BCS title game against Ohio State. Doucet was later selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the 3rd round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He never really panned out in the pros and was out of the league by 2013. (TMZ)
