Weatherly revealed in January that the couple were expecting a baby girl and he was doing his part to prepare for the delivery — despite a weak stomach!
“Here’s the thing, when I went to a prenatal class, it was like going to a drive-in horror movie,” he joked with PEOPLE.
“I saw things in that class at 9:30 in the morning … it was Alien meets The Exorcist.”
Olivia joins big brother August, 16, Weatherly’s son from his previous marriage.
We’re shocked there was drama between the two hunky singers — find out the confrontation that went down at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards!
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are so in love, and when One Direction star Niall Horan allegedly hit on her at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards, Justin stepped up to defend his woman!
Justin, 18, was super-mad when he saw Niall, 18, flirt with Selena, 19, at the March 31 ceremony, Star reports.
“Niall made a beeline for Selena and poured on the charm,” a source close to the situation said. “When he looked into her eyes and said, ‘You’re beautiful,’ Selena melted.”
What a shocking accusation! Justin responded by stepping in to manage the situation.
“He was stewing while it went down,” the source said. “He was ready to explode. Justin took Niall aside and warned him to keep away from Selena.”
Courtney Love has accused Dave Grohl of attempting to seduce her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Gawker reports. The Hole singer made the accusations on her private Twitter account last night, claiming that her estranged daughter's roommate informed her that the Foo Fighters frontman "hit on Frances." Grohl is, of course, the former bandmate of Frances' father, Kurt Cobain, and has known her since she was an infant.
In a series of subsequent tweets, Love threatened Grohl and speculated on his "pathology," noting that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins resembles Cobain and is in the "submissive drummer position" in the band, and that he named his daughter Violet, which happens to be the name of one of Love's biggest hits. She later declared that Grohl is "sexually obsessed" with Kurt, relaying information from a driver who claimed that Grohl had "his hands all over" Frances in his car.
This is hardly the first time Love has attacked Grohl in public. Back in November, the singer launched into a tirade against him at a festival in Brazil prompted by her outrage at a fan carrying a poster of Cobain in the audience.
Love's private Twitter account, @cbabymichelle, is locked from the public, but Gawker has posted a screen capture collecting all of her tweets from last night.
The pop culture babies are coming! Baby naming website Nameberry has made predictions of what the most popular baby names of 2012 will be based on an analysis of almost 3 million page views on their site. The guesses are an eye-opening, pop culture revelation of what is hitting with soon-to-be parents. Highlights below:
Taking the top spot is a beloved Hunger Games female name, but it’s not the obvious one. Rue, the doe-eyed heroine who stole our hearts (I throw berries at you, Marvel!) leads Nameberry’s list, according to their statistics. If a Hunger Games character had to take the cake, I’m glad it’s Rue. Can you imagine teaching a youngin’ to say Katniss?
Heading over to the XY chromosome, Emmett takes the cake, flanked by other boys’ names ending in –ett, like Everett and Beckett. As the the only reference the list makes to Twilight, I can’t help but wonder if the fifth ranked Jacobs of the world feel threatened…
Ivy and Adele
We head over to musical ground as the middle half of Blue Ivy Carter makes an appearance (somewhere Beyonce and Jay-Z are thinking: “Curses! Why didn’t we trademark this name for everyone!”), along with current EW cover star Adele. If two musical nombres had to make the cut, I’m glad it’s these two. I don’t need to see any little Minaj’s running around.
Though I wish that Declan had squeezed its way in, I’m tickled to see a reference to this season’s guiltiest pleasure beginning to make a dent. Revenge-related or not, this world could use a few more Daniel Grayson lookalikes.
Yes, the site lists Aria’s appearance as a favorite among ambitious parents with studiously high hopes for their offspring, but I’m choosing to interpret this name as an homage to Arya, the reigning Game of Thrones bite-sized badass.
In a puzzling change of pace, the terrorizing and brutal Cato of the Hunger Games has made its way up the ranks in what I can only surmise is that parents-to-be want their children to be built of inordinate strength and spout irrational and violent temper tantrums. Can you imagine the backlash of putting a Cato in a timeout?
Pregnant PopWatcher or not, what are your thoughts on these names? Do you mimic my surprise that Khaleesi didn’t appear? And where is the love for Ron Swanson?!

Move over, Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
For the first time since that 2005 action-romance, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be set to burn up the big screen together again.
Deadline.com reports that the couple is in talks to appear alongside Shame's Michael Fassbender and No Country For Old Men's Javier Bardem in The Counselor, to be directed by Ridley Scott.
According to reports, filming is set to begin in the next few months – and the movie will shoot in Europe. Both the Jolie-Pitts and Scott have homes in the south of France.
Fassbender will play the title role of a respected lawyer who gets tangled in the drug business, notes Deadline.com.
The film may deal with gritty themes, but it will likely be a family-friendly set: Unlike when they shot Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jolie, 36, and Pitt, 48, are now parents to six kids. Until now they have alternated film projects so one parent is always off.
"We're not ones to repeat ourselves, but we'd like to, because right now, we're hopscotching with films so one can be with the kids and one's free to work," Pitt told the Associated Press last May of reteaming on screen with Jolie, who is also set to appear as a horned witch in Disney's Maleficent.. "And why aren't we doing [movies] together? Why aren't we doing everything together?"
Perhaps now they'll get their chance.
Well, here's the type of weird thing you don't hear every day.
Morgan Freeman and his step-granddaughter E'Dena Hines spoke up today in response to reports that they're engaged to be married.
You read that correctly. So...what do the 74-year-old Oscar winner and the 29-year-old granddaughter of Freeman's first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, have to say?
"The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media design to sell papers," Freeman said in a statement obtained by E! News. "What is even more alarming is that these fabrications are now being [picked up] by the legitimate press as well."
Added Hines: "These stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also very hurtful to me and my family."
The National Enquirer latched on to the idea of a romance between them back in 2009, but at this time it's unclear which "legitimate press" outlet Freeman is referring to.
The Million Dollar Baby star and Bradshaw divorced in 1979 after 12 years of marriage. He and second wife Myrna Colley-Lee split up in 2007 and finalized their divorce in September 2010.
Dayana Mendoza fires back at Lisa Lampanelli for racial slur
Dayana Mendoza may have finally proven herself to teammate Lisa Lampanelli on Sunday's (April 8) episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice," but that didn't stop the insult comic from taking a jab at the former Miss Universe during a March radio interview on Sirius XM. But some, including Mendoza, are saying Lampanelli's comments went too far and were racist.
"I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She's a spic! She's going to do it f---ing soon, anyway," Lampanelli said during the interview. "She'll be knocked up before the end of the week."
Mendoza, who is from Venezuela, obviously wasn't amused by Lampanelli's bit.
"I understand that it's Lisa's job to make fun of people for a living," Mendoza tells the Huffington Post. "If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets to her shows, no problem, I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture."
Do you think Lampanelli took it too far or was she just living up to her "Queen of Mean" and "equal opportunity offender" descriptors?
Im so pissed at Lisa's racist comments if I see her in the streets I will take her fucking ass down. How dare she make such foul comments.

Madonna's new CD MDNA has crashed and burned, leaving a record-setting failure in its wake.
With numbers still being finalized, it appears that the Material Girl has become immaterial to listeners, evidenced by an 88 percent crash from week one to week two of sales.
The CD sold 359,000 copies when it debuted at the top of the Billboard charts and has now plummeted to 46,000 copies.
And here's a I-wish-I-hadn't-said-this quote from her manager, Guy Oseary, issued when things were going well: “People are really digging it,” he claimed about MDNA. “We feel good about the album. It's her 12th album and the same story she had 30 years ago. That’s an amazing accomplishment.”
Perhaps he should have read some of the reviews, which painted Madonna as out of touch and tired. Said the LA Times: "MDNA more than anything sounds like an album made by someone who’s lost touch with the desires of today’s popular music... the Madonna of today has lost the art of surprise."
Well not entirely, because her record failure has surprised some people, especially Oseary, who clamed Madonna didn't need to heavily promote the album because the music would speak for itself.
Apparently it did. And no one is listening.'
Source: Radar Online
Daily Mail is also reporting "185,000 copies of MDNA were sold as part of the ticket package deal. If this figure is correct it would therefore mean that only 179,000 copies counted as individual album sales. And if she hadn't included the albums with her concert tickets, she would have landed in the number two position, behind Lionel Richie's Tuskegee, which sold 199,000 copies in the same week she topped the chart."
John Stamos takes steam room showers with gay men -- at least that's the joke that's been running in a recent promo for "The Office" ... a joke that has since been awkwardly edited out.
The original promo aired on NBC for several days beginning last Thursday -- advertising an upcoming episode of the "The Office," in which Andy (Ed Helms) attempts to dump his girlfriend by lying about being gay. In the promo, Andy says, "I'm gay ... I had to fake it. I had to imagine that I was in a steam room with John Stamos."
But this morning, viewers began to notice ANOTHER version of the same promo -- in which the words "John Stamos" have been clumsily edited out.
Now -- instead of Andy saying "I had to imagine that I was in a steam room with John Stamos" -- he says, "I had to imagine that I was in a steam room with ..." and it cuts to a voice over saying, "cool guys."
It begs the question -- why is "The Office" backing off the John Stamos gay joke?
We reached out to Stamos' people -- so far, no word back. A rep for NBC had no comment.
flawless band gives a semi-relaxed mini interview. they always seem so nervous when they're talking to the press so it's nice to see them reminiscing about ohio. any ONTDers from akron? anyone catch this tour? i was at the chicago show and it was AMAZING.

Anne Hathaway had to ''physically transform'' to play Catwoman in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.
The 'One Day' actress is the latest in a long line of stars including Eartha Kitt and Michelle Pfeiffer to play the formidable character in the upcoming Christopher Nolan-directed sequel, and she admits it was tough to get into shape to fit into the famous suits she wears.
She said: ''I had to physically transform. Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, 'Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all his own fighting in 'Inception'. That one zero-gravity fight. He trained for two months.' I basicly left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago.''
Commenting on the character, who is also known as Selena Kyle, Chris claims she represents an ''underlying'' sense of darkness in the film, which is the last he will direct.
He told Entertainment Weekly: ''She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness.''
Christian Bale is reprising the role of Batman for the last time in the movie, in which Tom Hardy also stars.
Ehh. I guess I can root for her, but imo Michelle and Eartha will always be the superior Catwoman's.
In the interview they touch on the Odd Future message and brand, as well as 'the yoof' and rap music in general
Disclaimer: It's Newsnight. It is a very newsnight-y type of interview
But worth it purely to hear Paxo say 'ofwgktm' at the start
IN A SHOCKING A BLINDSIDING TWIST, THE JUDGES DECIDE TO USE THEIR SAVE
source: my rolling eyes and television
Ah, the gif recap. In case your parents have banned you from the internet since 2007, here's what it means: Instead of a boring old TV recap utilizing "text" or "words," a gif recap uses animated images from the show in order to put you "right in the middle of the action." It's almost as if you're actually watching TV, in very short snippets, with no sound, on an endless and hypnotic loop. And no commercials!
Peace and quiet
The phenomenon of "volume creep" is a well-documented one. Commercials get louder and louder to compete for the attention of increasingly bored and restless audiences, and the actual programming gets louder to match. And on and on, until you can't turn on your TV without blasting your eardrums all to hell. With a gif recap, you get the visual gist of a TV show without feeling like you just got back from a 13thFloor Elevators concert. Can a normal TV review do that? (No)
The images sink in
Normal TV recaps tend to hit your eyeballs and then evaporate. Who has the space to store what some TV critic thought about last night's "Community" in your long-term memory? A gif recap, on the other hand, burrows its way into your brain, and if you look at an animated gif long enough, it will eventually be all you can see. Close your eyes to escape the image of Kramer sliding into Jerry's apartment, and you'll still see it, permanently etched into your corneas. Fun!
Let's face it – the very nature of TV recaps dictates that the person doing the writing either takes the show way too seriously, or not seriously enough. This tends to throw any attempts at humor off-balance – but there's nothing funnier than an animated gif of Will Arnett tripping and falling into a large birthday cake over and over again.
The internet has turned many of us into lazy, undisciplined readers. So why fight it? By supplementing (or in some cases, replacing entirely) words on a page, animated gif recaps keep us from having to drag our eyeballs across too many rows of uninterrupted text. Which gives us more time to watch TV, thank God!
As the popularity of DVRs shows, nobody likes to sit through commercials. By "reading" animated gif recaps, you get some of the bold flavor of your favorite TV show without any commercials, which is more than some lame-ass textual review can provide. Why read about the innovative and aesthetically electrifying use of mise-en-scene on "Two And A Half Men" when you can literally see it for yourself?

MELTING at the perfection
Making a Stateside splash! The Wanted get a soaking on a prehistoric water ride as they enjoy a day out at Universal Studios
It's been a crazy couple of months for The Wanted as they jetted to the United States and won the hearts of thousands of teenager girls.
But after endless personal appearances, gigs and signings, it was time for the boy band to have some well-earned time off.
So they took themselves to a theme park in Los Angeles to have a go on some rides and let off some steam in the sunshine. what sunshine? it's been mucky and cold and raining
By the looks of it Queen Nareesha was too good for the cheapass Jurassic Park ride. I don't blame her
And they managed to cool off quite quickly as hit the Jurassic Park ride first and got a thorough soaking as their boat hit the water.
Members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuinness and Tom Parker were snapped at the theme park in Hollywood making the most of their coveted time off.
And they were snapped at the end of the ride as their boat hurled down a slide and into a river, soaking them from head to toe.
Not that they seemed too bothered as they laughed out loud and threw their hands in the air as the ride came rushing down and looked as though they were having a whale of a time.
But one member unfortunately had to miss out on the fun - poor Nathan Sykes was holed up in a recording studio.
The other four members were joined by Silva's girlfriend Nareesha McCaffrey, Tom's girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick and Max's mother as well as their bodyguard Kev and their tour manager.
All the gang together: The boys strolled round the resort after the Jurassic Park ride with Tom's girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick (in black shorts) and Silva's girlfriend Nareesha McCaffrey (in the dark sunglasses)
Max looked like he was really enjoying himself and seemed to put the events of the last couple of days behind him as he relaxed with his friends.
He has kept a low profile since since the group went on a few days break following the announcement earlier this week he is no longer engaged to Michelle Keegan.
But he looked back on form today as he strolled around the theme park in grey tracksuit bottoms and a green T-shirt, the sleeves of which he kept rolling up his shoulders.
MAMA GEORGE IS IN TOWN YALL
And he was so happy to see his mother, who arrived the day before, and took to his Twitter page to write: 'Mother George has arrived!!!!! Sooooo good to see her, she's the best.'
Mummy George has arrived! Max was joined bu his mother who had jetted in to see her son following his announcement he had called off his engagement to Michelle Keegan
SIVA AND THE QUEEN BEING PERFECT
SIVA AND the manwhore
smh at Nathan choosing the recording studio over having fun at Universal Studios. WTF bro
