David Henrie and wife welcome daughter after 3 miscarriages. Congratulations are in order for David Henrie and his wife, Maria Cahill, who just welcomed a baby girl. The actor, known for his roles on "Wizards of Waverly Place" and "How I Met Your Mother," shared on Instagram Tuesday that their daughter's birth did not come without some hardships. "Today is a particularly special day for Maria and I... and it's special because in order to get to where we are today, with the joy of our newborn in our arms, my wife and I went through trials," Henrie, 29, wrote. "I felt compelled to share this because I had no clue just how difficult trying to start a family could be." The Disney star then opened up about Cahill, 28, suffering three miscarriages, saying, "See, Pia Philomena Francesca Henrie has brothers and sisters... While it was insanely difficult recovering from miscarriage after miscarriage, we knew if we were ever going to be able to hold a baby of our own in our arms that we must not let the tragedy affect our marriage, but rather grow closer together!" Henrie revealed that his daughter's middle name, Francesca, has a special meaning because she is named after Pope Francis. He said, "I personally asked pope Francis to pray for Maria and I to have a baby. He took our hands, held them together, said a special blessing, then looked up and told me not to worry that a baby would be coming that was pretty much exactly nine months ago." In a text sent to fellow Disney actor, Gregg Sulkin, and posted on his Instagram Stories, Henrie shared that his daughter was born a healthy 7-pounds, 6-ounces. "I HAVE A DAUGHTER!!!!" Henrie told Sulkin. "CRAZIEST FEELING IN THE [WORLD]. (PageSix)

Big Brother's Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson Welcome Their First Child  Find Out Her Sweet Name! Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf have a lot to celebrate. The Amazing Race and Big Brother stars announced on their PodcastOne and Direct Message podcast Now What?! that they just welcomed a baby girl named Maverick Nickson. She even has her own Instagram account already! Maverick was born on March 17 and weighs 6 pounds, 7 ounces and is 18 1/2 inches long and they "couldn't be happier." Nickson explained on their podcast that his wife had to have an emergency C-section because the new mom had "not been feeling good" for a bit and her blood pressure was extremely high. "So, sure enough after all the prep and everything, 15 minutes later on St. Patrick's Day, our little bundle of joy arrived," Nickson said. The new parents revealed on Sept. 24 that they were expecting their first child together. They posted a heartwarming series of photos that showed them holding up a sonogram. "WE'RE PREGNANT! And I'm over the moon! I'm so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together!" she captioned it. When Graf shared the update on social media, she said the baby's due date was April 11, "just two days before Cody's birthday." However, little Maverick came a bit earlier than expected. The 33-year-old former Marine said the "surgery went great." The Amazing Race winner said his wife is "still recovering" and he didn't plan on leaving her side. "I know she kind of wanted me to take the reins and tell the story. Right now, she's laying down next to me," Nickson continued. "They just have her on a few meds. They're trying to get her blood pressure down still. For the most part, she's doing really good." Graf divulged to E! News earlier how she broke the news to Nickson, and it felt fitting given their own television history. "We actually found out while watching the finale of The Bachelorette. I wasn't feeling well at all and decided to take a test even though I was pretty sure I wasn't pregnant! I didn't tell Cody I was taking a test. I just went and laid back in bed with him, pregnancy test in my hoodie pocket," she shared. Once those few minutes after taking the test went by, she looked at the stick and "gasped" upon seeing the results. "He immediately burst out into laughter and I burst into tears!" Graf explained. "It was the best surprise!" The couple found out the sex of their baby right after a very special day: their wedding. They tied the knot on Oct. 14 at a romantic ceremony in Malibu and explained earlier that they wanted the reveal to be around the same time as their nuptials "so that all our family and friends can celebrate with us." Graf posted a photo of herself cutting into a cake with a pink interior, confirming that "ITS A GIRL!!!" The 28-year-old shared updates about her pregnancy journey over the last few months, including tributes to her baby as she cradled her baby bump as well as pictures of her ultrasound. Maverick will be a little sister to Nickson's daughter, Paisley, whom he had from a previous relationship. Nickson said on the podcast, "We already can't wait until the next one comes." His wife, however, "can wait." Congratulations on the newborn! (Eonline)

"So, I'm sorry for what I said about my cat, I'm sorry for what I said about anything or anyone that was offensive, and I'm sorry for being someone who thought being super offensive and shocking all the time was funny," he tweeted, noting his story about the sexual acts was "fake." "I'm sorry for my past. But I'm really to make it right and I feel like without my past I wouldn't be who I am today and I wouldn't be able to grow & spend my energy on things that actually mean something. This has been the best 2 years of my life & it's because I've been able to drop the act & be myself. and I'm sorry for not doing it sooner." It looks like Dawson is ready to put this past behind him and celebrate a bright future. Congratulations to the happy couple! (Eonline)

The Reason Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's Wedding Plans Are Now on Hold. On hold! Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have been ready to say "I do" for quite some time  but now they want to make sure they have God on their side before they walk down the aisle, a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. The former No Doubt front woman, 49, "began the formal process" to have her marriage to ex-husband Gavin Rossdale annulled by Catholic church officials "so she can marry Blake and have it be recognized by the church," says the source. "Gwen's religion has always been extremely important to her, and Blake is completely supportive of this." Even though Stefani and the country singer, 42, have been ready to get married for a while, "there are obstacles they have to deal with" first, an insider revealed in February. One of the issues is their living arrangement. The Voice coach currently splits his time between his native Oklahoma and Los Angeles, while Stefani is based in L.A. with her three sons, Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4. But in the meantime, the couple are happier than ever. Adds the source, "they're willing to wait."

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Had to 'Work Really, Really Hard' to Find Happily Ever After. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard define #CoupleGoals, but they're the first to admit their nearly 12 years together have been filled with ups and downs. "We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we're both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we're pretty much opposites," Shepard, 44, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week's cover story, on stands Friday. After crossing paths briefly at a dinner party in 2007, the couple -- who wed in 2013 and have two daughters, Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 4 -- reconnected weeks later at a hockey game where "the sparks were flying," says The Ranch star. Adds Bell, 38: "Big time." Though they had undeniable chemistry, both say their road to marriage was certainly rocky. Not quite ready to settle down at the time, Shepard broke up with Bell months into their relationship. But just a few days later, the stars -- who recently launched an affordable, plant-based baby product line called Hello Bello -- reunited after Shepard changed his mind. "I was like, 'That's the best personality I've ever seen on a woman. I need to be around it," recalls Shepard. "I want to be around it when I'm 80, but how?" The answer was trust and honesty plus "a little couple's therapy" -- and a very meaningful compromise. Knowing Shepard didn't believe in marriage, the Bad Moms actress had accepted she would never be his wife. "He has a great argument that the state having a piece of paper doesn't mean he's going to be nice to me and by my side for the rest of my life. [Rather], that is going to be evidenced by how we treat each other and the commitment that we make," says Bell. "I had surrendered, like 'Okay, well, I'm never going to get any sort of traditional marriage out of this, and that's okay because I trust him.' I really, really trusted him and believed that we were going to go the long haul." But Shepard knew how much marriage meant to Bell, and "ultimately, I was like, 'Well, I'm doing it because my partner wants that," he explains about proposing in 2009. "Forget the tradition or history of marriage as a concept, you knowing I was doing something that I didn't want to do because I loved you was a big sign for you." After their intimate, courthouse nuptials in 2013, the couple who often buck tradition  did feel a greater sense of security. "It just felt more normal. We do a lot of things differently, but there's a couple things where I'm just like, 'God, can we not just fall inside the lines once in a while? I want to wear a pretty piece of jewelry. It's fun!" explains Bell. "It felt nice afterwards." Celebrating 12 years together this year, Shepard and Bell are taking stock on the incredible life and family they've built together. "All these movies from the '80s taught us that it's love at first sight, and it is supposed to be easy and [that] all you have to do is find that person," says Bell. "It took me a while to realize, 'Oh, that was such a lie,' because things that you work really, really, really hard for always yield the best results." (People)

The Bachelorette's JoJo Fletcher Admits She Thought Jordan Rodgers Would "Leave Her Heartbroken." JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are opening up about their relationship in a new episode of Engaged With JoJo & Jordan. The Bachelorette couple holds nothing back when it comes to their love life, including the preconceived notions the 28-year-old star made about her man on the reality TV show. On the pair's latest YouTube video, JoJo recalls thinking Jordan would "leave me broken hearted." The Dallas native says she was "a little emotional" after reading a fan comment about how they thought "Jordan was in it for the wrong reasons." In addition to the follower's comment, the reality TV personality says, "Kinda thought the same thing about Jordan when I met him, and it was a struggle the whole time we were together. I knew how great we were, and how much I cared for him, and I was falling in love with him, but there was something. So, this was an example of where I totally judged him." She continues, "The whole time I had this thought in the back of my head like, 'Dude this guy's gonna leave me broken hearted.'" Although, she admits she couldn't be more wrong about her fiance. If anything, she gets defensive over the "nasty stuff" people say about the 30-year-old star. "All the nasty stuff people said about Jordan, it kind of made me sad because I loved him and I wanted to defend him. They don't get to see how everything played out throughout that whole day or that whole time," she says. "You don't know this person, you don't know everything about them, so to pass judgment on certain scenarios or situations kinda stinks." For JoJo, "when it came down to Jordan and Robby [Hayes]," she says her "heart was with Jordan." Even though the couple laughs about this now, the Dallas beauty confesses she thought Robby was the safe choice. Obviously, in the end, she chose the sports commentator. "In that moment, I was like 'I'm gonna follow my heart, I love this man so much. You know what, if I get a broken heart or heartbroken, then whatever, I followed my heart.'" "And [Jordan] has been the safest thing that I have ever experienced in my whole life so, I was wrong," the reality TV personality says. The only thing JoJo dislikes more than people passing judgement onto her man, are social media comments about her and her Bachelor Nation friends' appearance. "All of my girlfriends from the show, people like to comment on all of our pages that we've had a nose job or chin implant or this," the 28-year-old TV personality vents. "First off, who cares? Whether or not they've done something, the problem here is you being mean about someone's looks." Adding, "People also attack Jordan on his career or saying he's not good enough or that he has a career because of this show." In the words of the sports commentator, "Use [social media] for good."

Emma Roberts Ends Engagement With Evan Peters and Moves On With Garrett Hedlund. Emma Roberts and Evan Peters have ended their engagement, and now the actress is dating Garrett Hedlund, multiple sources exclusively confirm to Us Weekly. "Emma and Evan were heading for a split and now are just friends," one source tells Us. "Evan has moved out. It wasn't a bad breakup." Meanwhile, an eyewitness saw Roberts, 28, and Hedlund, 34, walking together in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The Triple Frontier star "had his arm around [her] for a bit and then they were holding hands," the eyewitness tells Us. "Garrett and Emma have been friends, but this is new, casual, and just a couple of weeks old," another source says of the budding relationship. Roberts and Peters, 32, started dating in 2012 after filming the indie comedy-drama Adult World, later sharing the screen across four seasons of American Horror Story. The former couple hit a rough patch in 2013 when Roberts was arrested following a fight with Peters that left the Pose actor with a bloody nose. Reps for the duo told Us at the time that the altercation was an "unfortunate incident and misunderstanding," and that Roberts "was released after questioning" and was "working together [with Peters] to move past it." The pair got engaged later that year, but they took months-long breaks in their relationship in 2015 and 2016. In October 2017, a source confirmed to Us that the Scream Queens alum was at the center of Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen's split the month prior, after Bilson, 37, found text messages that convinced her that Christensen, 37, was having an inappropriate relationship with Roberts, his costar in the film Little Italy. Despite the drama, an insider said that Roberts and Peters were "still very much together" the following month. For his part, Hedlund was in a relationship with his On the Road costar Kirsten Dunst from 2011 to 2016. (UsMagazine)

Matt Damon Calls Himself a "Dinosaur" for Not Being on Social Media. Matt Damon is essentially a Renaissance man when it comes to the film world. He's an actor (hello, Jason Bourne), producer, Saturday Night Live cameo extraordinaire and more. Off-screen, Damon has spent time pairing up with an organization that he reveres and finds "humbling" to work with. He's one of the biggest names in Water.org and Stella Artois' "Pour it Forward" campaign, which is helping to end the global water crisis by encouraging people to "Change Up The Usual" right before World Water Day, which is March 22. We first got a glimpse of this beverage partnership during the 2019 Super Bowl in a commercial featuring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw and Jeff Bridges as The Dude from The Big Lebowski. Any fan of these iconic characters knows that it takes a lot for Carrie to not order a Cosmo or The Dude a White Russian, but for Stella and Water.org's teamwork they'll surely do it. "As an actor you can actually become protective over this thing that you created, and the willingness and enthusiasm with which they just jumped in and did this because they believed in the work we were doing was very humbling for us and also really exciting," Damon explained to E! News. Damon and his Water.org co-founder Gary White talked to E! News about the campaign and how it'll maybe even encourage The Martian star to download social media. Despite being one of the most recognizable celebrities and one of the biggest names of the business, Damon is essentially a ghost on social media. He knows it, too. "I'm a dinosaur," he joked, adding that "it's a conversation" he and his wife Luciana Barroso have a lot. The popularity and importance of hashtags could play a role, like #pouritforward. "I'm looking at the impact of that and it's kind of undeniable," Damon said. "So yes, I think I will probably move into that realm somewhere down the line because it's so hard for us to message around this." Perhaps his good friend Chris Hemsworth could give him that extra push? "He is definitely in the middle of the social media world and I've been able to see up close because I'm with him all the time, the reach that he's able to have. So definitely in terms of the work at Water.org, it's definitely making it a hard case for me not to get on social media," Damon added. "I'll grow up." The Good Will Hunting actor discussed the broad reach of Stella Artois and Water.org's partnership and why it's an important topic of conversation. "It took us until 2012 to reach our first million people and this Stella deal alone will reach three and a half million people by the end of its run and Water.org at large, we've now reached 17 million people so we're getting over a million people a quarter now," Damon said. White added, "A dollar invested today with us helps us move so much further with our mission than a dollar invested ten years ago or five years ago because with water credit, what we're doing is we're spurring the market to provide these small loans to people but for having a few extra dollars, they can solve their water crisis." Damon shared that working with the Pour it Forward campaign has been "eye opening" for him. He said, "If you're raising money for cancer awareness or AIDS awareness, we all have family or friends who have been affected by those things, whereas clean water is not something that we can really relate to. It's not something that affects any of us or our friends so it's been an eye opener for me." Anyone looking to make an impact on World Water Day or feeling inspired by Damon, Carrie Bradshaw, The Dude and Mindy Kaling can buy a Stella Artois Chalice on their website, which helps provide 5 years of access to clean water to someone in the developing world. Damon expressed, "You can go to the bar with your friends and by doing something really simple, you can have this profound impact on somebody's life in the developing world. That's just a really cool thing to come up with." (Eonline)

Louis Tomlinson's Sisters Mourn Felicite Days After Her Death: "I'm Lost Without You." More members of Louis Tomlinson's family are mourning their sister, Felicite Tomlinson days after her sudden and tragic death. Felicite died on Wednesday after a suspected heart attack at her London apartment. Police responded to a call of a female in cardiac arrest and she was pronounced dead at the scene. She was 18. Her younger sister Phoebe Tomlinson and Phoebe's twin Daisy Tomlinson both took to Instagram on Sunday where they mourned the loss and wrote about their sister's profound impact on the twins' lives. Phoebe shared a photo of a baby Felicite and said she and her family were all "shocked and heart broken." Phoebe began, "You were my best friend, sister, motivator and person that could make me laugh until I cried. I'm lost without you and the thought of never seeing you again scares me like you wouldn't believe. I will love you forever and ever and you and mama will have a place in my heart until the day I die." "Please tell me your [sic] watching over us and that you will always remember the way we all laughed together. Our memories will stay with me forever," she continued. The 14-year-old praised her late sister and called her "the best storyteller" and painted her as a woman who was always there when others needed her. "I pray that you're in a better place now. We love you like you wouldn't believe. Fly high my beautiful sister," she concluded. Phoebe also mentioned their late mother, Johannah Deakin, who died in 2016 after a battle with leukemia. She was 43. Phoebe is "so glad" that Felicite and her mom are "together now." "Mummy needed you and you desperately needed her," she wrote. Daisy, too, posted a photo of her siblings when they were younger and wrote about how "broken" she felt. "My precious sister. My heart is bleeding. I keep imagining and praying they have the wrong person. Not my sister, my best friend," Daisy wrote. She mentioned some recent happy memories as well as regrets. "I pushed you away when you tried cuddling me, I thought I would have so many more chances to do that. I would cuddle you a million times over if you were still here, with me. Protecting me from this cruel world," she continued. Daisy added, " I can hear your voice. I want to hold you, keep you safe. Tell you how much you meant to me and how much I adored you. I'm frightened without you. You've left me feeling alone." The former One Direction member has not yet spoken publicly about his loss. However, less than two weeks ago he released a new song called "Two of Us" which is all about his mother and how much he misses her. "This morning I woke up still dreaming / With memories playing through my head / You'll never know how much I miss you / The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead," he sings in the first verse. He continues in the second verse, "So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die / I'll be living one life for the two of us / I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me / I'll be living one life for the two of us / Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone." On March 19, Phoebe and Daisy's big sister Lottie Tomlinson uploaded a slideshow of photos of herself and Felicite on Instagram. She called Felicite her "best friend" and said she felt "incomplete" without her. "I'm empty. I can't picture my life without you. I wish we could have lived life together for a little longer," Lottie wrote. " Mama needed you and you needed her, you're finally together again. I love you always, Dotty x." There was even a bit of One Direction sibling love on Lottie's post. Harry Styles' sister Gemma Styles commented on her sentimental photos with a red heart emoji. Phoebe and Daisy also showed their love for their sister. "Sisters forever," Daisy commented. Phoebe added, "I love you so much Dotty" and added the broken heart emoji. Our thoughts go out to the Tomlinson family and their loved ones during this difficult time. (Eonline)

Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman Haven't Grasped the Possibility of Prison Time in College Admissions Scandal. The college admissions scandal marks a steep fall from grace for two women who made careers out of playing relatable moms: Full House's Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman. "Neither actress knew this would become so serious," a Huffman source says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. "They haven't fully grasped the extent of their alleged crimes or the possibility of prison time." Loughlin, 54, and Huffman, 56, were among the 50 people who were charged on March 12 in connection with the alleged nationwide scam that involved faking students' test scores and bribing college officials. Many of those indicated including the two actresses and Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, but no Huffman's spouse, William H. Macy, as she was the one who allegedly arranged a $15,000 payment to boost their 18-year-old daughter Sofia's SAT score  have been accused of funneling money through a bogus charity run by businessman William Rick Singer. Loughlin and Giannulli -- who allegedly paid $500,000 to have their daughters, Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, labeled as University of Southern California crew team recruits even though they are not rowers -- are set to appear in a Boston courtroom on March 29, as is Huffman. For more details on the scandal, pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now. (UsMagazine)

Keshia Knight Pulliam wins latest custody battle against Ed Hartwell. A Georgia judge thinks the current child custody arrangement between Keshia Knight Pulliam and ex Ed Hartwell is just fine. The former NFL star, 40, will not be granted another trial to determine if he should be given joint custody of 2-year-old Ella Grace, according to The Blast. In 2018, Hartwell requested another opportunity to fight for custody after he felt the judge made mistakes. Hartwell also claims he was denied visitation on multiple occasions including a time when Pulliam, 39, traveled to Pennsylvania to support Bill Cosby during his sexual assault trial. He also cites an eight-week period in which he didn't see his daughter while Pulliam filmed "Celebrity Big Brother." The judge ultimately agreed to keep things as they are. In 2017, shortly after Ella Grace was born, there was a dispute as to how much child support Hartwell should be paying. The pair were briefly married for six months before calling it quits in 2016. Their divorce was finalized in 2018. Pulliam's team did not immediately return a request for comment. (PageSix)

Kristoff St. John's ex weighing legal options after his death. Boxer Mia St. John is weighing her legal options after the death of her ex-husband, claiming the hospital improperly treated his mental illness. Mia was married to "Young and the Restless" star Kristoff St. John for nearly five years in the '90s and was responsible for helping him get treatment in January after he slid into a deep depression. She now claims the hospital didn't recognize the severity of the soap star's mental illness and addiction and is holding them partially responsible for his death. Mia told The Blast that she, along with some of Kristoff's co-stars, staged an intervention. Although he didn't immediately agree to get help, he ultimately gave in. Upon arriving at the hospital, Mia told the publication that the family asked for Kristoff to be placed on a 5250 hold, which allows a person with certain mental health disorders to be involuntarily held for up to 14 days. Kristoff checked into Las Encinas Mental Health Facility in Pasadena, and Mia talked to him a few times after that. On Feb. 1, however, she learned that he had checked out of the facility despite her impression he would be there on a 14-day hold. As Page Six previously reported, Kristoff was released from the center after a 72-hour hold. His autopsy report also indicated that he suffered from a history of alcohol use, bipolar disorder and suicidal ideations. The Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed to us that he died of hypertrophic heart disease. Other "significant conditions" were the effects of ethanol and myocardial bridging of the left anterior descending coronary artery. Kristoff's death was declared an accident. He was pronounced dead at the scene on Feb. 4 after friends called police and paramedics to his home. He was 52. Shortly after his death, Mia tweeted a message blaming the mental health facility that cared for her ex-husband. She quickly deleted it. "THAT HOSPITAL KILLED OUR SON @TheArtofJulian THEN MY HUSBAND @kristoffstjohn1 THATS WHAT HAPPENED! THEY KILLED MY FAMILY," she wrote. Mia told The Blast that she feels Kristoff was suffering from a mental illness that was not properly treated by the medical staff at Las Encinas, so she's looking into all legal options. She hopes to use any legal action taken against the hospital as a platform for facilities to better recognize addiction as a mental illness so that they're not released before they're ready to take care of themselves.
