Thandie Newton welcomes son Booker, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Actress Thandie Newton and her husband Ol Parker are feeling blue - baby boy blue, to be exact. The couple welcomed their third child and first son, Booker Jombe, on March 3 in a home birth. [Twitter]
  • Lena Dunham is bouncing from TV to print and back again. The "Girls" creator and star is hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend (check out the promo below) and she'll also write a four-part story for Archie Comics.
  • Leah Remini is giving reality TV another go. The former "Dancing With the Stars" competitor has landed a 12-episode series on TLC that will focus on her and her family, and will be produced by the team behind "Duck Dynasty."
  • For a non-real person, Adele Dazeem is taking over. The figment of John Travolta's imagination has replaced Idina Menzel on the playbill for "If/Then." [LAT]
  • HBO has essentially given 10 rappers a challenge to find something that rhymes with Daenerys, as the network's commissioned the artists to contribute to a "Game of Thrones"-themed rap mixtape. [Time]
