Reports: Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher welcome first child, a baby girl

That '70s baby is here! Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are now parents to a baby girl, according to reports out Wednesday.

The former "That '70s Show" stars welcomed their daughter on Tuesday in Los Angeles, TMZ reported. People later chimed in with its own sources saying that "she's here and healthy."

The couple, who have been romantically linked since 2012, are said to have arrived alone at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center around 6 a.m. Tuesday and were taken straight to the delivery room, TMZ reported.

Reps for Kunis, 31, and Kutcher, 36, did not respond to requests for comment.

It's the first child for both actors -- though Kutcher did have a father-like role while he was married to actress Demi Moore, who had three kids with her ex, Bruce Willis. Kutcher and Moore finalized their divorce in November 2013.

Kunis' pregnancy reports first surfaced in March, shortly after news that "Two and a Half Men" star Kutcher  had popped the question came up in February. The "Ted" and "Jupiter...

Alyssa Milano leaving ABC's 'Mistresses,' won't 'uproot' her children

Alyssa Milano is bidding farewell to "Mistresses" to focus on her family.

The "Charmed" alum broke the news on her blog on Wednesday, explaining why she won't be returning for the ABC drama's third season.

"After two wonderful seasons in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to shoot season three of Mistresses in Vancouver, Canada for financial reasons," the 41-year-old star wrote. "It's with a heavy heart that I have decided that I can't relocate."

The actress welcomed her second child, daughter Elizabella Dylan, with husband David Bugliari last month. Now that she has a family of four -- she's also mom to son Milo, 3 -- she decided it was in their best interest to stay in the City of Angels so that her family could remain together.

"I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best," the actress concluded.

Justin Bieber reportedly punches paparazzo in Paris kerfuffle

Justin Bieber had another run-in with photographers in Paris and appeared to punch one of the shutterbugs while making his way through a crowd.

The 20-year-old pop star and his entourage reportedly arrived at a hotel around 11 p.m. local time on Wednesday only to be greeted by a swarm of fans and paparazzi as Bieber & Co. tried to make their way into the building, reported E! News and TMZ, which obtained photos of the kerfuffle.

A witness told E! News that the "Baby" singer appeared upset that he couldn't get through the throng and punched one photographer and appeared to to grab another by the neck.

No injuries were reported nor were charges filed, the sites said.

It's not the Biebs' first fracas with photographers, or even people in general. The embattled singer, who's had an abundance of legal woes this year stemming from a string of outlandish behavior, made headlines in July when he got into an altercation with actor Orlando Bloom in Ibiza that resulted in the "Pirates of the...

Duchess Kate cancels another appearance due to pregnancy illness

The Duchess of Cambridge is still feeling unwell during her first trimester, canceling another appearance due to severe morning sickness.

Catherine, who is pregnant with her and Britain's Prince William's second child, was expected to appear at the opening of the Clore Art Room at London's Barlby Primary School on Wednesday.

But she had to withdraw from the event as she continues to deal with hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe pregnancy illness from which she also suffered during her pregnancy with her first child, Prince George, palace officials said.

Catherine, 32, has been a patron of the Art Room, a charity that provides art therapy for children, since 2012.

The duchess sent a message of support -- and apology -- to the organization, which is celebrating the Clore Duffield Foundation's 50th anniversary.

"I am truly sorry that I cannot be with you all today as you celebrate this milestone," the message said. "As Patron of the Art Room, I feel great pride to see the work that the...

Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka were pleasantly surprised by their own fireworks show during their Italian wedding earlier this month.

The "How I Met Your Mother" star, who wed Burtka in Perugia, shared a few more wedding details when he stopped by "Late Show" on Wednesday to tout his memoir, "Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography," and the upcoming film "Gone Girl."

He also drew a few comparisons to that other big Italian wedding this month -- George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's -- but we'll get to that later.

Harris said that he and Burtka chose their locale because it was where they took their first trip together.

"Live!" host Kelly Ripa, "HIMYM" director Pam Fryman, their twins Gideon and Harper and singer Elton John were among the attendees.

Malcolm Young left AC/DC because of dementia, family confirms

AC/DC founding member Malcolm Young is suffering from dementia, his family said Tuesday.

His family confirmed the diagnosis in a statement to People and thanked fans for respecting their privacy.

Malcolm Young, 63, formed the rock band in the early '70s with younger brother Angus Young, now 59. The elder Young's retirement was announced last Wednesday along with the release date of AC/DC's next album, Pop & Hiss reported.

At that time, the illness was unspecified, with the band's statement referring only to "Malcolm's condition." Stevie Young will be taking over his uncle's spot on rhythm guitar.

The band announced the guitarist was taking a break for health reasons back in April, but didn't indicate it was a permanent situation until last week.

Lead singer Brian Johnson told Classic Rock magazine in June that Malcolm Young was hospitalized.

"He's such a strong man," Johnson said at the time. "He's a small guy but he's very strong. He's proud and he's very private, so we can't say too...

Tracy Morgan: 'I can't believe Wal-Mart is blaming me' for injuries

Tracy Morgan is not at all happy with Wal-Mart’s accusation that the "30 Rock" star and his entourage weren’t wearing seat belts when a tractor-trailer hit his limo on the New Jersey Turnpike.

"I can't believe Wal-Mart is blaming me for an accident that they caused," he said Monday in a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times. "My friends and I were doing nothing wrong."

The June 6 collision killed one of the people riding in Morgan's chauffeured van: fellow comedian James McNair, better known by his stage name Jimmy Mack. Morgan was hospitalized in critical condition with a broken nose, ribs and leg.

Morgan and three other crash survivors sued Wal-Mart in July, saying the retail giant "knew or should have known" that Kevin Roper, the 35-year-old Georgia man who was driving the tractor-trailer, had been awake for more than 24 consecutive hours when the crash occurred.

Wal-Mart pointed a finger back Monday. "Plaintiffs' injuries, if any, were caused, in whole or in part, by...

Ciara is the latest victim of Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who gladly showcased his goodies while grabbing her Tuesday in Paris.

The singer, 28, was ambushed by Sediuk outside the Valentino presentation during Paris Fashion Week, according to pictures from the scene and footage obtained by TMZ.

The serial prankster, who counts Brad Pitt, Adele, Will Smith and Kim Kardashian among his high-profile victims and has been banned from most red carpets in the United States, accosted the R&B star while wearing a man-thong as she was being photographed.

He was reportedly standing outside the venue wearing a trench coat, then disrobed to reveal his black thong and gold sequin top. He proceeded to pose for snapshots with his arm around the singer and gave her a hug. 

Security promptly removed the man and an observer asked him why he'd swarmed in. Sediuk replied by showing off white text emblazoned on the skin of his right thigh: "Ban in USA but I still rock Chanel," perhaps referring to...

Amanda Bynes arrested on suspicion of DUI after doing well for a year

Oh, Amanda Bynes seemed to be doing so well — but now the actress-turned-design student has been arrested again on suspicion of DUI.

Bynes was arrested by the CHP before dawn on Sunday in Sherman Oaks, where she stopped her Mercedes in the middle of an intersection after the light turned red, L.A. Now reported.

She was suspected of being under the influence of drugs, police told L.A. Now, and her blood was drawn before she was released from custody shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday. However, authorities won't know what kind of drugs she might have been using until toxicology tests come back.

A drug-recognition officer at the Van Nuys determined Bynes was under the influence of a stimulant, TMZ reported.

Bynes is serving three years' probation after pleading no contest in February to a charge of "wet reckless" driving related to her April 2012 arrest in West Hollywood after she clipped a police cruiser when she tried to pass it around 3 a.m. This arrest could jeopardize that probation.
