The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun and Joana Pak Welcome Baby No. 2. It's a party of four! On Tuesday, The Walking Dead alum Steven Yeun and his longtime love Joana Pak welcomed a precious baby girl. While not many details are known, like what the little one's name is and what day she was born, Pak shared the exciting news on her Instagram Stories. The 32-year-old photographer captured a sweet picture of her and her daughter, who was nestled on her chest in the hospital bed. Following the post, Pak snapped another photo of her baby girl laying down in a white onesie and a striped pink and blue beanie. The newborn was catching zzz's in both images. As for Yeun, he's keeping the baby news to himself. The 35-year-old actor has yet to announce the birth of his daughter with his 3.5 million Instagram followers. But considering the couple is known for being extremely private, it makes sense they're holding off on sharing every detail. Last December, Pak announced she was pregnant with baby no. 2. The 32-year-old photographer showed off her baby bump in a selfie and captioned her post with a several emojis that included their family tree. This is the couple's second child together and their first daughter. That's right, the pair's little bundle of joy has a big brother! The two welcomed a son, Jude Malcolm Yeun, back in 2017 on St. Patrick's Day. They tied the knot in 2016, about two months after the premiere of The Walking Dead season where Yeun's character died. He played Glenn Rhee since the TV show's debut in 2010 and has since starred in other notable films and series', including Sorry to Bother You, Voltron and more. His latest project, however, is highly anticipated because he's featured in the newly rebooted series, The Twilight Zone, which airs on May 2. Congrats to the couple on the new addition to their family! (Eonline)

Alex Trebek Opens Up About Surges of "Deep, Deep Sadness" During Cancer Battle. Alex Trebek is a fighter through and through. The Jeopardy host sat down with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts for his first live interview since revealing he has stage four pancreatic cancer earlier this year. "People all over America have been sharing their good thoughts, their advice, their prayers and I feel it's been making a difference in my wellbeing," Trebek said. "I've had so many contacts from people who have survived cancer for 10 years, 12 years, 14 years. I am now a 30-day cancer survivor. I'm going to catch up to those other people. But they have been an inspiration to me." Still, it has not been an easy battle. Though his oncologist says he is doing well, "I don't always feel it," the 78-year-old confessed. "I've had kidney stones, I've had ruptured discs, so I'm used to dealing with pain. But what I'm not used to dealing with is the surges that come on suddenly of deep, deep sadness and it brings tears to my eyes. I've discovered in this whole episode, ladies and gentlemen, that I'm a bit of a wuss. But I'm fighting through it." And learning to accept the array emotions he's typically not used to experiencing. "Chemo affects people in different ways, and people have to understand that," he said. " There's nothing wrong with saying 'Hey, I'm really depressed today and have no idea why. Why am I crying today?'" Next week, he will undergo another chemo treatment -- "I joke with the nurses and I'm there for an hour and a half while they inject all this stuff into me," he said -- and then his doctors will elevate where everything stands. So far, his weight, blood count and platelets are steady, and his cancer indicator numbers are beginning to lower, he revealed. During Jeopardy's summer hiatus, his focus will be on building up his strength. And, as he has continues to insist, he will be back in the fall for season 36. "The chemo takes it out of you. I feel so weak all the time," he added. "We are dealing with it chemically and spiritually and those are positives. Hopefully everything is going to turn out well and I'll be back on the air with original programming come this September." In true Trebek style, he has turned this journey's ups and downs into a lesson. "I've learned that I'm an extremely lucky individual," he concluded. "In spite of the fact this diagnosis is not a good one, I have managed to receive so much love from so many people and quite often you don't get that during your lifetime...It makes me feel really, really good." Our thoughts and prayers are with Trebek and his family during this time. (Eonline)

Melissa Rivers says she's proud to be a survivor, and to have made it through the immense anger she felt in the wake of her father's suicide. Melissa, 51, was just a sophomore in college when her father, TV producer Edgar Rosenberg, died by suicide at age 62 in 1987. In an interview on the new ABC Radio podcast Life After Suicide, hosted by ABC News' Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton, Melissa opens up about the resentment she felt toward not only her late father, but her mother, Joan Rivers, in the immediate aftermath. "I was angry at my mom, I was angry at my dad, I was angry at the UPS guy, I was angry at the person in traffic, I was ... I used to feel like, I used to call it like this free-floating sort of anger, and God help whoever it landed on that day," Melissa recalls. "I was really mad at my mom, really mad, and we've spoken very openly about that." The Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? star says she placed some of the blame on her famous mom partly because she and Rosenberg had recently separated though she says her vitriol toward Joan only lasted about a year. Joan, who died in 2014 at age 81, was well aware of her daughter's resentment, as she explained to PEOPLE in 1993. "The way I see it, Melissa blamed me. But she wasn't going to turn to me by the casket and say, 'You killed Daddy!'" said Joan. "[We] tried to go on with our own lives and were both so broken that we couldn't help each other." In the decades since, Melissa says she's learned to let go something she doesn't think her mother ever did. "What I found fascinating and I know my mother would deny this she never got past it," Melissa says. "She felt terribly embarrassed, terribly angry, terribly embarrassed ... I don't think she ever got over the anger. She will tell you she would and she used to say to people, 'Well, I just still can't believe what he put Melissa through, and he did that to Melissa,' and you want to be like, 'Mom, I'm probably better than you are on this one.' " Despite the pain left behind, Melissa channeled her emotions into something more productive, and emerged a true fighter. "It's so interesting that something that could have destroyed my life and something that created so much unhappiness and anger has become something now to do something really good that I care about and it's become so much of a definition of who I am, and that I'm proud that I'm a survivor," she says. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), text "home" to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 or go to suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

John Singleton had a plan in place for his death, because TMZ has learned he left a will, and that's a monumental development in what appears to be a family war that erupted while he lay dying in the hospital. Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, John's mother, Sheila Ward, is in possession of the will and it will soon be filed with the probate court. Sheila handled all of John's business affairs, which includes the last will and testament. As we reported, last week Cleopatra, one of John's 7 children, accused Sheila of trying to corral his assets and squeeze out his kids. Cleopatra launched her attack after Sheila filed legal docs last week to get a temporary conservatorship while John was unable to make decisions. The legal fight ended when John died. If the 51-year-old, famed director had died without a will, Sheila would get nothing from his reported $35 million estate, because under California law the assets would be divided equally among his 7 children. But, since there's a will, John decides who gets what, and who gets nothing. Given the business relationship between John and Sheila, it's a safe bet she's the executor of the will, which surely would not please Cleopatra. It's unclear when John signed the will, but it's not out of the question someone might try and mount a challenge that the will should be invalid because of undue influence or mental incapacity -- this came up after Michael Jackson died. Important to note ... most of these challenges fail. (TMZ)

Rick Schroder is in jail after an early morning bust for allegedly striking his girlfriend ... and it's the second time cops have hauled him in for alleged domestic violence. Cops got a call around 12:43 AM for a domestic incident at the "NYPD Blue" and "Silver Spoons" star's home. When they arrived, they spoke to him and his girlfriend -- and shortly after that, Schroder was arrested for felony domestic violence ... according to our law enforcement sources. The fact he was booked for a felony typically means the victim had visible marks of some kind. We're told Schroder's girlfriend refused medical treatment on the scene. Turns out the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. made almost the exact same arrest 30 days ago. Our sources say Schroder was taken into custody on April 2 ... also for felony domestic violence. We're told deputies went to his home -- again, a little after midnight -- after he allegedly punched his girlfriend in the face as she tried to leave their home. Schroder bailed out after that arrest. He is currently in custody for, and we're told his bail this time is set at $50,000. We've reached out to Schroder's reps ... no word back yet. (TMZ)

G Herbo is now facing a battery charge for an altercation that went down with the mother of his child ... and prosecutors say the rapper dragged the woman by her hair. TMZ broke the story ... G Herbo was arrested in Atlanta last month after cops said he assaulted Ariana Fletcher during an argument. According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Herbo's been charged with one count of misdemeanor battery. Prosecutors are accusing him of intentionally hurting Ari by dragging her by her hair and scratching her arm badly enough to leave visible wounds. Prosecutors tell us the 23-year-old Chicago rapper who has a son with Ari is now staring down a possible max sentence of 1 year behind bars, if he's convicted. As we reported ... Ari is now dating boxer Gervonta Davis, and she's pregnant with his child. The night before the alleged assault, Ari and Gervonta were out partying at the same Atlanta nightclub as G Herbo ... although it's unclear if that what sparked the fight. (TMZ)
