Hush-hush hooray: Zooey Deschanel welcomes baby girl and secretly gets married

Getty Images

The chances that Zooey Deschanel would end up a two-time divorcee seemed slim to none — right up until she married Jacob Pechenik in a top-secret June ceremony in Texas. Okay, so this is a happy item, but we had to tie it in to today's breakup news somehow. I mean, you have to be married to get divorced, right?

Deschanel actually has double the good news: The New Girl star and Pechenik have welcomed a “beautiful, healthy baby girl,” the actress’s rep told Us Weekly.

The pair didn’t want to know whether it would be a boy or girl.

“We are going to be surprised,” she told Jimmy Kimmel. “It’s more fun, you know? Make it into a game.”

The couple got engaged in January, on Deschanel’s birthday. This is the Yes Man star’s second marriage. She divorced Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard in 2012.

Looks like Reba McEntire is ready to Love Somebody else. The country singer and and Narvel Blackstock are separating after 26 years of marriage.

Cue the obligatory joint statement:

“Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other,” reads a release from Big Machine Label Group. “They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so. They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.”

About that working together part: Blackstock, 58, manages McEntire, 60. Awkward.

The couple have been separated for the past several months. No word yet on if they’ve officially filed for divorce, but rumor has it they stayed together this long at the suggestion of daughter-in-law Kelly Clarkson.

“Kelly urged them not to split and she’s the reason they didn’t split earlier,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “She was really fighting for them to make it work and stay together.”

Why are they doing this to us?

Sixth-grade me is shattered, ripping the No Doubt and Bush posters from her pink, nag champa-saturated wallpaper, blasting Don’t Speak on repeat because Gwen Stefani is divorcing Gavin Rossdale and apparently nothing is sacred.

Stefani filed the paperwork on Monday after 20 years together and 13 years of marriage.

“While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment,” the pair said in a joint statement. “To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.”

The split comes as a shock to fans as Stefani, 45, and Rossdale, 49, seemed committed to sticking it out.

“We both want to be married, and we both want to be good parents,” the Voice coach said on Today in January. “So, I feel really proud of what we’ve done together.”

The couple are parents to sons Kingston Rossdale, 9, Zuma Rossdale, 6, and Apollo Rossdale, 17 months. They’re both seeking joint custody.

Dr. Dre releasing first solo album in 15 years

It has happened. Dr. Dre announced over the weekend that he will release his first album in 15 years this week.

Compton: A Soundtrack will be his “grand finale,” the Nuthin’ but a 'G’ Thang rapper said on The Pharmacy, his show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.

Fans had been waiting for years for Dre to put out Detox, his follow-up to The Chronic: 2001, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

“I’m gonna keep it one thousand with you,” he said. “I don’t think I did a good enough job. I couldn’t do that to my fans, I couldn’t do that to myself.”

Instead, he drew inspiration from the upcoming biopic Straight Outta Compton about his early rap group N.W.A.

“I was leaving the set… and I found myself being so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album,” said Dre, 50. “I kept it under wraps.”

The album will be released Friday through Apple Music and can be pre-ordered now on iTunes. The 16-track effort features Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Xzibit, Ice Cube and Kendrick Lamar.

“All my friends came in, and we all came together to build this thing,” he said. “It’s going to be my grand finale.”

The name Ashlee Simpson Ross chose for her second child is not at all surprising, considering she named her first kid Bronx. The singer and husband Evan Ross welcomed a baby girl on Thursday, announcing the birth with the Instagram caption, “We are overjoyed about the birth of our precious baby girl Jagger Snow Ross.”

Let’s hope she’s got the moves to go with the name.

This is the second little one for Simpson Ross, 30, and the first for the 26-year-old Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 star.

“I am overjoyed about the birth of my precious Grandbaby, Jagger Snow Ross,” Diana Ross tweeted. “She is so beautiful. I LOVE HER. Ashlee and Evan were amazing.”

Simpson Ross has a 6-year-old son with Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz, 36.

“I love Bronx more than anything, he’s the greatest kid in the world and his father is amazing,” Evan Ross told E! News.

Wentz and lady love Meagan Camper welcomed their first child together 11 months ago.

“Everybody has a great relationship,” Ross said. “We’re just all a big family.”

Amy Schumer, J-Law, Jet Ski: These are a few of our favorite things.

There’s a new girl squad in town, and you don’t have to be built like a supermodel to be a part of this one. Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are friends, it would seem, and the proof is in the Instagram post.

“#JLaw #maniac,” Schumer captioned a snap of the pair Jet Skiing on vacation together because that’s exactly what Hollywood’s cool girls should be doing every day forever and always. Schumer also posted a pic of their crew floating around in the ocean somewhere being super fun and probably swearing up a storm while talking reality TV.

The only thing missing from this magical formula: Kristen Wiig. And us. And wine.

The happy (?) couple.

Wedding bells were ringing for Guy Ritchie and model Jacqui Ainsley on Thursday as the couple exchanged vows at their home in Wiltshire, England.

Guests included Brad Pitt, David Beckham, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Us Weekly reports.

“Congratulations to @Jacquiainsley and @realguyritchie love and best wishes to you on your wedding day x vb,” Victoria Beckham wrote on Instagram. “#jaxguyjuly.”

Many attendees slept in white tents and teepees on the property after the celebration.

Ritchie, 46, and Ainsley, 33, have been together since 2010 and are parents to Rafael, 3, Rivka, 2, and Levi, 13 months. This is Ritchie’s second marriage, obviously. Everyone knows he and Madonna were a legally wedded thing for eight years around the turn of the century.

“I enjoyed my first marriage. It’s definitely not something I regret,” the Sherlock Holmes director told Details magazine. “The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take.”

Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom divorce almost finalized

Two years after separating, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have finally given up on whatever it was they were doing this whole time. Reconsidering, procrastinating, squeezing every last ounce of publicity out of this thing, the usj. (That’s usual for short, which is pointless because now we’re having to write this explainer.)

Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce in 2013 but took no action for a year, prompting a judge to threaten to dismiss the case. Now though, the reality star and 35-year-old NBA player have signed the required legal docs, according to TMZ, and a judge is expected to make a final ruling any day.

This is great for KK because now she can date James Harden sans marriage guilt, and Odom can’t get his hands on her soon-to-be baby or A&E money.

What’s that, you say?

Anonymous sources tell Radar Online that Kardashian, 31, has come to the realization that she don’t need no stinkin’ man to spawn another K-word, and rumor has it she’s planning to jump on the parenting train soon — right after she starts her new gig as host of the FYI show Kocktails with Khloe, that is. …

Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas sign divorce papers

Must have been a busy day down at the dumpin’ office because Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have signed the papers to make their divorce official. All the couple of 18 years awaits is a judge’s signature to end the year-long process, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Perhaps these two were sticking it out for their kid because daughter Stella just turned 18 last month. So hurray, at least there won’t be any custody dispute to write about.

Griffith, 57, filed for her fourth divorce in June 2014. She was married to Steve Bauer once and Don Johnson twice, which makes us wonder if she can get her Antonio tattoo un-removed sometime in the future. Banderas, by the way, was formerly attached to actress Ana Leza.

Cheating? Babies? What sparked the Blake Shelton-Miranda Lambert split?

Getty Images

The world wants answers. How could such a shiny couple fall apart so fast?

Rumors that Blake Shelton was cheating on Miranda Lambert started pretty soon after the country superstars got married in 2011, so who knows on that front. But now, word is Shelton filed for divorce when he discovered it was Lambert who was unfaithful to him — not once, but twice.

Sources tell TMZ that Shelton heard Lambert was cheating on him with another country singer, Chris Young. The pair were seen out and about every now and again, but TMZ’s sources say there was no hard evidence, only enough chatter to raise suspicion.

Young, 30, responded to the rumors via Twitter on Tuesday, writing, "I don't normally address gossip but in this case I will. My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda's divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up."

The insiders say Shelton filed for divorce two weeks ago because he received information that proved that Lambert had been with a second man. Shelton told her to remove her animals from his Oklahoma ranch and get to gettin’.

But is it true? …

We bet Jeremih will remember this more than even the best Birthday Sex. The R&B singer rang in his big 2-8 in the clink on Friday morning after being busted for drunken driving.

Jeremih was pulled over in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley around 2:15 a.m. and was booked an hour later for misdemeanor DUI, according to TMZ.

Jeremih posted $15,000 bail and was released around 11 a.m., which gave him plenty of time to drive to San Diego and party at ParQ Restaurant  & Nightclub later that night.

We just hope he called Uber afterward.
