The story behind Kate Hudson's baby name, Bingham Hawn

Unconventional celebrity baby names (we're still waiting on some star to say they went with John or Jennifer) always seem to spark the question of where the inspiration came from.

New parent Matt Bellamy, who welcomed a son with fiancee Kate Hudson last Saturday, explained that their pick of Bingham "Bing" Hawn Bellamy is simply keeping it in the family.

The Muse musician tweeted, "For those wondering, Bingham is my mum's maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt's dad. Family connections all round!"

Mila Kunis is officially going to Marine ball

Mila Kunis is putting this story to rest once and for all.

Earlier this week it was reported that the 27-year-old star of next week's "Friends with Benefits" had accepted Sgt. Scott Moore's YouTube invitation to attend this year's Marine Corps Ball on November 18. As Fox411 reported, the YouTube invite was brought up during an interview, and at the time, Kunis said she'd do it.

And then, just as quickly as that spread, so did the rumor that she really wasn't, because she had work to do.

Michael Bublé: These seniors are so effing cute!

Feel proud of yourselves, members of the Clark Retirement Community in Grand Rapids, Michigan, because you made Michael Bublé smile!

The sassy seniors did a "LipDub" of Bublé's famous "Feeling Good" cover on YouTube and the Canadian singer was tickled when CNN brought it to his attention. (We already know how much he enjoys seeing other people perform his music.)

"I love this video," Bublé told CNN.  "I look at all of them with great reverence. It made me really happy and they're so effing cute." FULL POST

Chris Colfer learned he's leaving 'Glee' from Twitter

If you found out that Chris Colfer isn't returning to "Glee" for season 4 from the Internet, you've got something in common with the actor - that's how he, too, discovered his eventual departure.

On Wednesday, "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter that the characters Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith portray are "graduating" after season 3. “We’ve never done anything by the book,” Murphy said. “We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.”

Emmy nominee Colfer didn't seem to know that it would be so soon, as he told Access Hollywood that he learned of the news on Wednesday from Twitter.
