Kourtney Kardashian and Hayden Panettiere give birth
Plus, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis do a Twilight-like parody, and Brad Pitt jokingly tells Rihanna to do something with her life
Hayden Panettiere and fiancé welcome daughter Kaya
After a relatively quiet pregnancy, actress Hayden Panettiere gave birth to a baby girl on 9 December. This is the first child that the 25-year-old actress welcomes with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko and the couple has named her Kaya Evdokia Klitschko. “We are over the moon and madly in love!” the couple told People exclusively along with the announcement of Kaya's birth.
The Heroes actress has known boxer Wladimir since 2008 but split up after dating for three years. They only just got back together in 2013 and Hayden announced their engagement in October the same year.
Kourtney Kardashian gives birth to baby boy
Kourtney Kardashian gave birth on Sunday 14 December to her third child with long-time partner Scott Disick, E! News confirmed. It was also their firstborn son Mason Disick's birthday that day, so that's a pretty big birthday present for the now five-year-old boy and his family.
Kourtney said earlier that she wanted to wait until the baby came along before deciding on a name, so we're keeping our ears pricked for when we can call the new baby Disick something other than "Kourntey's new baby." As for whether the reality TV star and Scott will ever tie the knot, that remains to be seen.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' Twilight parody
Okay, it's not a Twilight parody, per se. To be fair, it does have us wondering what a sappy young adult film would look like with this real-life Hollywood A-lister couple as its stars. It won't be Oscar-worthy, we're sure (nothing too sappy ever is), but if it makes fun of the genre, we're in.
MoonQuake Lake's storyline is pretty vague, but we know that Mila and Ashton are a couple in love who are doomed to be separated by the fact that Mila is from the moon, cries moon tears, and has to go home to the moon every night. How ridiculous. Rihanna appears in the trailer as Mila's boss or leader (from the moon, too, we imagine).
All the elements to back it up as a legit film in development are there: a trailer (watch it below), a Sony Pictures website (we could not stifle a laugh) and a feature in another one of Sony's productions, Annie. According to Deadline, MoonQuake Lake's trailer plays in the cinema where Annie attends a premiere.
This isn't the kind of onscreen reunion we'd wished for Ashton and Mila, but it'll do for now. No word as to whether the whole production is actually happening or not, but The Lego Movie director, Philip Lord tweeted (hinted?) this:
Brad poke funs at Rihanna and Jay-Z in the cheekiest way
You can't just make fun of the powerhouse that is Rihanna. No, you can't. Unless you're Brad Pitt, in which case a bit of ribbing is exactly what you should do. Rihanna was scheduled to perform at her inaugural charity gala, the Diamond Ball, in Beverly Hills on Sunday night. And to introduce her, the very fine Brad Pitt gave a cheeky summary of all RiRi's achievements.
He began with a photo of Rihanna in her younger days flashed up on the screens, saying, "I give you exhibit A. Look at the young girl before you, all full of hopes and dreams, living a humble existence in Barbados, her whole life ahead of her."
He then talked about her falling "in with a bad crowd led by the dubious and nefarious character known as The Jay Z" and how it "was all downhill from there." Except "downhill", in the land of RiRi refers to her selling 54 million albums, winning multiple Grammys, garnering 90 million Facebook fans and 40 million Twitter followers. Not bad for a day's work, you'll agree.
Brad rounds up with another photo of Rihanna, this time photoshopped to look slovenly, lying about on a couch with a sandwich. He says to the audience, "I ask that we stand together by her side and show her our support and our love and say to her the hard words, 'Rihanna put down that sandwich, get off your ass and do something. God damn it, just do something with your life.'" Huh! Yeah, Rihanna. Do something. Geez.
The gala was organised in aid of Rihanna’s charity The Clara Lionel Foundation, which seeks to support the development of health, educations, arts and culture in communities around the world. The night was attended by a host of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Big Sean, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and also featured a live auction of heavyweight items such as a Damien Hirst artwork and VIP tickets to a Kanye West concert.
