Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck welcome baby boy Samuel

It's a boy for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who welcomed their third child Monday.

Affleck has posted on his Facebook page that they're "happy to announce" that "Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck."

Affleck and Garner, both 39, also have daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3. Garner has said the two girls had ideas for the baby name, and it looks like she was able to steer them away from some of their more creative suggestions.

Lindsay Lohan's more of a 'homebody' now

Even through her legal ups and downs, we knew Lindsay Lohan had a sense of humor - if only because of how often "Mean Girls" is on TV.

And in a promo for her fourth "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig, which will air on Saturday, Lohan shows she's still got a handle on comedic timing - even when she's making fun of herself.

Paired with Kenan Thompson, she jokes that it does feel good to be back in the spotlight, as "people are probably wondering what I've been up to."

Jolie's leg takes on a life of its own

If Angelina Jolie isn't careful, her right leg is going to snatch the next star role right out from under her.

It's not that the pose the actress struck at the Oscars was unusual - a number of stars have purposefully displayed a scintillating bit of skin through the slit of a gown (with exhibit A being Jennifer Aniston, the ex-wife of Jolie's partner, Brad Pitt.)

But Jolie's dedication to putting her right leg front and center has sparked a meme that popular culture just can't kick.

Meryl Streep donates $10k to Rhode Island school

No matter what happens at the Academy Awards, there's clearly no tension between Meryl Streep and Viola Davis.

CNN affiliate WPRI reports that Streep has donated $10,000 to the Segue Institute for Learning, a charter school in her fellow best actress nominee Viola Davis' hometown of Central Falls, Rhode Island.

Davis has previously donated to her hometown's cash-strapped library, and has spoken about how close the Segue school is to her heart.

Is Snooki pregnant?

Although Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's previously denied reports that she's pregnant, The New York Post is claiming that the pint-sized reality star has been fibbing.

A similar rumor started at the beginning of the month, and the "Jersey Shore" star's rep told MTV that there was no truth to the gossip that Snooki and her boyfriend Jionni had a little one on the way.

On February 2, Snooki told "Good Morning America," “I definitely do want kids, but I’m not pregnant . . . Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I’m not.”
