Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose welcome baby boy

Almost two weeks to the day since Amber Rose showed off a very round baby bump at the Grammys, the new mom and her hip-hop star fiancé, Wiz Khalifa, have welcomed a son.

"Happy Birthday Sebastian 'The Bash' Taylor Thomaz!!!" a proud Khalifa posted  on Twitter Thursday. "Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world."

Rose, the former girlfriend of Kanye West, announced she was engaged to Khalifa in March of last year. She's gushed about their relationship, and so has Khalifa.

The rapper told CNN in 2011 of his romance with Rose that "it’s awesome to have that support and to have that base. It gives me structure, it gives me discipline and it helps me work on other stuff that’s much more important. I feel like everybody has some person that’s out there for them. If you tap into that and take advantage of it and hold it close and treat it like what it is, that’s when you’ll get – fully – out of it what you’re supposed to."

Oscars producers: We're bringing entertainment back

The upside to being the prestigious ceremony of the awards season is having the cache, but the downside is that the show can also be seen as stodgy.

Despite efforts to liven it up in recent years, the choice to bring in Anne Hathaway and James Franco for 2011's show backfired, and pulling Billy Crystal off the hosting bench in 2012 was considered safe.

This year, however, with Seth MacFarlane as the master of ceremonies, Oscars producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are trying to keep the night as entertaining as possible.

What'd you think of 'Idol's' sudden death round?

What'd you think of 'Idol's' sudden death round?

"American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe hinted that the ladies were the ones to beat this season, but Wednesday's sudden death round weeded out that talent pool considerably.

The idea of a "sudden death" elimination is a new addition for the singing competition. Ten singers perform over the course of an episode, and by the end five are sent packing in an effort to narrow down the field of contestants to 20. Wednesday was ladies' night, and tonight's episode will feature 10 men singing their hearts out in hopes of making it to Hollywood.
