Weighing in at 6 lbs., 13 oz., the newborn's arrival has left his country star dad a "changed man." "Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now," Wallen wrote on Instagram alongside a photo holding his son. "It's not just me anymore, and I'm glad it's not. This year has been the hardest of my life in so many ways, but that's not what I will remember it by. You are. You are a gift and this tough year just made sense." Wallen promised the baby that he will be "the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves." "Since you were born, I know that every decision I make will be with you in mind. I promise I'll always protect you, and do my best to be an example of a good, godly man just like my daddy was for me," the "Chasin' You" singer continued. Wallen said that he is "glad" to share the news of his son's arrival, admitting he was "a little scared" to learn what parenthood feels like. "But it's the coolest damn feeling," he said, "and I'm ready for whatever God has planned for me and my little guy." "He's healthy and happy and while I'm typing this I'm getting in the truck to go hold him right now," he concluded his post. "Thank you for all the love and prayers. Thank you to my friends and family who have called and texted me letting me know how happy they are for me and that I have their support. I can't wait to see him hook into his first big one." Smith also shared the news of the newborn's arrival on her own Instagram Saturday, sharing several photos from the hospital and writing, "when you pray for God to send someone who reciprocates your love for them- and he sends you the most perfect version of that.." "Yesterday was nothing short of complete bliss.. ???" she added, revealing the little one's nickname: "Indie Wilder you are your mama's answered prayer times infinity and the cutest little human ham hunk I've ever laid eyes on." Smith has been documenting her pregnancy on Instagram and on Friday teased her baby's arrival with a shot from her hospital bed cradling her bump. "Guess what time it is ?" she wrote in the caption.

Sofia Richie and Scott Disick Reunite Again After Spending Time Together on Fourth of July. Sofia Richie and Scott Disick had been dating for more than two and a half years before taking time apart in May. Scott Disick and Sofia Richie appear to be spending more time together following their split! On Sunday, Richie, 21, shared a video that seems to have been taken inside of Disick's Hidden Hills, California, home. "Down to earth," Richie wrote over the clip in reference to Zac Efron's new Netflix show. The model did not show her face in the video nor did she show Disick's face. The reunion comes after Disick and Richie spent time together on the Fourth of July. The pair, who had been dating for more than two and a half years before taking time apart in May, "spent a relaxing day in Malibu," a source told PEOPLE at the time. "They seemed happy together, but more friendly than romantic," the insider added. Disick, 37, began dating Richie in the fall of 2017, two years after he split from the mother of his three children, Kourtney Kardashian. Disick and Richie's split came after he sought treatment in rehab in late April. When a photo of Disick inside the rehab center was leaked online on May 4, just under a week after he'd arrived at the Colorado treatment facility, he checked himself out and flew back to Los Angeles. A source told PEOPLE at the time that Disick and Richie were taking a break "so Scott can just focus on the most important things in his life -- his health and his kids." "Scott is working on his issues. Sofia is hanging out with friends," the source explained. "It was Sofia's choice to take a break." Since then, the father of three has maintained a relatively low profile, though he's been spending time with Kardashian, 41, and their sons Reign, 5, and Mason, 10, and daughter Penelope, 7. However, an insider told PEOPLE last month that while Disick and Kardashian are "not back together," the exes are "incredibly close." (People)

Evan Spiegel Admires Wife Miranda Kerr's Co-Parenting with Ex Orlando Bloom: It's 'Very Different'. "This is one of the things I love about Miranda," the Snapchat co-founder says. "Everyone is welcome. It's the Aussie way." Evan Spiegel is continuously impressed by his wife and her ability to put their kids first. The co-founder of Snap Inc. and supermodel and KORA Organics founder Miranda Kerr open up about their families and careers in WSJ. Magazine's July digital issue cover, which hits Apple News on Friday. The couple -- who share son Hart, 2, and Myles, 9 months -- also balance coparenting Kerr's son Flynn, 9, with ex-husband Orlando Bloom. Spiegel, whose own parents divorced, tells WSJ. Magazine that he's learned a lot from Kerr's relationship with Bloom, who is expecting a second child with fiancee Katy Perry. "What I saw from Miranda and Orlando was very different from what I experienced," Spiegel says. "I am in no way a replacement for Flynn's dad. I feel like [I'm part of] Team Flynn." The couple says that they have an open-door policy for Flynn's friends and their parents -- and Bloom. "This is one of the things I love about Miranda," Spiegel, 30, tells the magazine. "Everyone is welcome. It's the Aussie way." Spiegel says he realized early on into the couple's relationship that Flynn was the center of Kerr's life. In fact, he reveals that on their first date he made Kerr, 37, a gingerbread house with icing that said her and Flynn's names. Now, the pair -- who wed in May 2017 -- are focused on parenting during a pandemic. "[Flynn's] screen-time restrictions are out the window," Spiegel admits, but Kerr disagrees, retorting: "We do limit screen time around here." And though the couple admits that they "see the world very differently," Spiegel says that's a "huge strength." "There's nothing more helpful than having someone who loves you, and knows you really well, point out a different perspective." (People)

Final straw. Chrishell Stause slammed Selling Sunset costar Christine Quinn for speaking out about her November 2019 split from Justin Hartley. "I just learned Christine is giving press 'information' about my divorce," Stause, 38, tweeted on Monday, July 13. "Let me be VERY clear. She knows absolutely nothing about the situation and is obviously desperate to gain attention by doing so. Anything from her is either a complete lie or total conjecture on her part." The former Young and the Restless star continued: "It's so frustrating and unfortunate that someone would use someone's personal painful situation to get press for themselves. I can't say I am surprised, but please check the source. She has absolutely zero knowledge of the marriage we had." Earlier that day, Quinn, 31, claimed that Stause and the This Is Us star, 43, attempted to mend the rift in their relationship by going to couples' therapy before calling it quits. "We all just thought maybe they were having communication problems for a while," Quinn told the New York Post's Page Six. "We heard that they were in therapy, so obviously there were some issues going on with them. ... I hung out with him many times and he was an absolute doll. ... He has been nothing but nice and supportive to us." Us Weekly confirmed on November 22 that the former couple had filed for divorce after two years of marriage. Documents submitted to a Los Angeles court at the time cited "irreconcilable differences" as the cause of their split. While Hartley claimed the former couple's date of separation was in July 2019, Stause's documents listed a November date instead. Though an insider told Us at the time that the pair "had been having problems with the marriage for a while," the split still came as a "big surprise" to their inner circle. Six months after news of her divorce made headlines, Stause revealed that she was doing her best to stay strong. "Transitions are hard, but I always try to focus on the positive side of things," she told Us exclusively in May. "Thankfully there is a lot to focus on right now." Later that month, fans of the Netflix reality series got a dramatic first look at how the former soap opera star's divorce would be played out on the upcoming third season, which airs in August. "It's just a lot all at once because everybody in the whole world knows," Stause says tearfully in the teaser. "I love him so much. This was my best friend. Who do I talk to now?" Despite the emotional season preview, Quinn admitted that Stause and her ex-husband hoped to keep coverage of their personal problems to a minimum. "I think that was the understanding that they had is that he wanted to be totally private in regards to Selling Sunset, which she respected," she told Page Six. "So, we're never going to see him on the show and we're never going to see her talk about him, and I really don't think there's ever any resolve, unfortunately." Us has reached out to the former couple for comment. (US Weekly)

Exhausted Naya Rivera struggled to save son as boat drifted -- but couldn't save herself. Before disappearing in a California lake, "Glee" actress Naya Rivera used her last bits of strength to get her 4-year-old son onto their drifting boat, but didn't have the energy to save herself, officials said Monday. "We believe it was mid-afternoon when she went swimming, the idea being, perhaps, that the boat began drifting... and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back on the boat but not enough to save herself," Ventura County Sheriff William Ayub told reporters at a press conference held after the discovery of her body Monday. He added that "[Her son Josey] described being helped into the boat by Naya, who boosted him onto the deck from behind. He looked back and saw her disappear under the surface of the water." The "Glee" actress' body was found floating near the surface in the northeastern corner of Lake Piru, about six days after she went missing during a trip with her 4-year-old, Ayub said. "We are confident the body we found is that of Naya Rivera," Ayub said at a press conference, citing the location and clothing of the body and the fact that no one else has been reported missing in the lake. "There are a lot of currents on the lake that appear particularly in the afternoon," Ayub said. The boy, Rivera's son from her marriage to actor Ryan Dorsey, was found asleep on the pontoon, wrapped in a towel and wearing his life jacket, on Wednesday afternoon. Authorities have said they believe Rivera drowned. She was found near where the pair had gone swimming, in an area of the lake with 35 to 60-foot deep waters and heavy brush and trees that rise up nearly 20-feet from the lake bed. "We believe she was concealed within the shrubbery of some of the floorbed of the lake" before the body rose to the surface, Ayub said. The remains looked like they had been in the water for several days and did not have a life jacket. An adult-size life vest was found on the boat. There was no indication of foul play or suicide. The body was flown to the medical examiner's office in Ventura County, where an autopsy will be conducted and positive identification will be made using dental records, Ayub said. Authorities had said the day after Rivera went missing they believed she was dead and had shifted to working to locate her body rather than find her alive. Investigators used Facetime videos between Rivera and family members, as well as interviews with people on three other vessels on the lake that day, to determine which parts of the lake Rivera and her son had visited and focus their search. Dozens of divers worked in the waters with little visibility, with help from sonar and robotic devices that combed the bottom of the lake and helicopters and drones searching from above. "It has been an extremely difficult time for her family throughout this ordeal," Ayub said "We share in their grief." (PageSix)

Benjamin Keough struggled with drugs and alcohol, had been to rehab: report. Lisa Marie Presley's son, Benjamin Keough, struggled with booze and drugs and had recently been to rehab, sources told writer Tony Ortega. Elvis' daughter, Lisa Marie, brought up her family in Scientology before a falling out with its controversial leader, David Miscavige, in 2014. Keough committed suicide on Sunday. A friend of his told Ortega -- who covers all things Scientology in his blog the Underground Bunker -- that back in May, Keough "had been talking about how f?-?-?ked up kids get in Scientology." He was raised in the religion with his sister Riley, and their dad, Danny Keough -- Presley's first husband -- is still in the church. Meanwhile, Presley has been going through a bitter divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, including a custody battle over their 11-year-old twins, Finley and Harper. Speaking about Presley, the source told Ortega: "Ben was her baby. More than Riley. More than the twins. This will be beyond inconceivable for her. I really worry that it might be too much for her." Another source, who was said to be close to Keough as a boy, claimed, "His entire family was shaped by Scientology, and [they're] paying the price." The 27-year-old shot himself in the chest at his mother's $1.8 million Calabasas, Calif., mansion. Keough reportedly had a longtime girlfriend, Diana Pinto. One neighbor reportedly said that Presley was not in the house, and they had not seen her for weeks, according to the Daily Mail. Members of the Presley family gathered there later on Sunday. Reps for the family and Scientology were unavailable for comment. Presley's rep previously said in a statement that she was "entirely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated," adding, "She adored that boy. He was the love of her life." (PageSix)

Lori Loughlin petitions judge for lower bond, insists she's not a flight risk. Much like the rest of us, Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli aren't going anywhere. Or at least that's what they're attempting to persuade U.S. District Court Judge Nathanial Gorton of, in an attempt to have their $1 million bonds lowered to $100,000 each. The Mercury News reported Monday that prosecutors have agreed to the new sum, with Loughlin and Giannulli's lawyers writing, "There is no indication that defendants will flee rather than face sentencing" in a memo. The pair's bond was originally set in March 2019, and Loughlin will be sentenced on Aug. 21. The filing is most likely related to Loughlin and Giannulli's current real estate dealings. They're seeking the removal of the requirement that their bonds be secured by a lien on their home, which is currently in escrow to be sold to Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen. Mateen picked up the Bel Air mansion for a cool $18 million, or $10 million below the latest asking price. After spending over a year insisting on their innocence, Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, pleaded guilty in May to charges of paying $500,000 to fixer William "Rick" Singer to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, admitted to the University of Southern California. The deal they struck with prosecutors carried the recommendation of a two-month prison sentence for Loughlin, and a five-month sentence for Giannulli, though Judge Gorton can reject that. Loughlin is reportedly "scared to death" of catching the coronavirus in prison. Felicity Huffman, the other prominent celebrity implicated in the admissions scandal, was sentenced to 14 days in prison beginning in October 2019, of which she served 11. (PageSix)

The 2 men and 2 teens who allegedly killed Pop Smoke have been slapped with murder charges, and while the death penalty is in play ... prosecutors haven't decided yet to seek it. The L.A. County District Attorney's Office announced criminal charges against 19-year-old Corey Walker and 18-year-old Keandre Rodgers, who were each charged with murder with special circumstance allegations that the killing went down during the commission of a robbery and burglary.

Even though the D.A.'s Office says they haven't decided on whether to pursue capital punishment yet, both adult men face still face life in prison if convicted. (TMZ)
