Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton hit the mountains
Lovebirds Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton packed the car and headed out of town for the weekend, enjoying one another's company — and the company of Gwen's three sons — at Lake Arrowhead outside Los Angeles. Need proof Blake gets along with his lady's fam? Look no further than the matching camo Kingston and Zuma put on to stay in sync with their mom's main squeeze. "Gwen and Blake looked very happy," a source tells People. "As always around Blake, Gwen was all smiles. They had dinner at the resort and seemed to enjoy a quiet night with Gwen's boys. They all looked like they had a fun weekend."
Engagement rumors hit Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Falchuk
Is Gwyneth Paltrow planning another trip down the aisle? That's what some outlets are asking after the actress reportedly wore a large ring to Jay Z's birthday party, which she attended with her boyfriend, Brad Falchuk. "Gwyneth had a huge rock on her wedding finger that caught a few people's eyes," a snitch told the Sun (via Celebitchy). "Later she was introducing Brad to someone he didn't know and referred to him as her fiancé. She seemed totally loved-up," the insider added. If the couple does have wedding plans, however, they have yet to confirm them — and Gwyneth seemed to be ring-free when she and Brad stopped by her Goop Gift shop popup in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles over the weekend, according to Celebitchy. Gwyneth and "Glee" co-creator Brad, who met on the set of his show when Gwyneth appeared as a guest, went public with their relationship in 2014, four months after the actress "consciously uncouples" from Chris Martin.

Katie Holmes: Suri is 'my number one'
Suri Cruise has yet to act on camera but her name already appears in the credits of a major film. Speaking to Yahoo recently, Katie Holmes explained that her daughter lent her support while she was working on the single mom drama, "All We Had," so she made sure to shout out the 10-year-old at the end. "My daughter and I are very, very close," Katie says in a new interview with Yahoo (via JustJared). "She helped me when I was preparing for it. We have a good time together. It's more about her than me. It's my first feature, and when she's older, I thought it might mean something to her that, yeah, of course I thanked you. She's my number one."
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's daughter is a big Tom Hanks fan
Ryan Reynolds got lots of love at the 2017 Critics Choice Awards on Sunday, Dec. 11, winning Entertainment Weekly's Entertainer of the Year honor ("I want to thank my wife, and for no reason at all, I suppose my children," he joked) and Best Actor in a Comedy for "Deadpool." Noting he'd "prepared nothing" speech-wise, Ryan opted to use his mic time to thank Tom Hanks, who apparently has at least two fans at Ryan and Blake Lively's house. "No really though, you're a huge influence on me," Ryan told Tom (via E! News). "My two-year-old daughter [James], the first full sentence she ever said was, 'There's no crying in baseball.'" It's never too early to get a kid started on "A League of Their Own."
Kylie Jenner debuts a new pooch
Kylie Jenner can't seem to get enough puppies in her life. Over the weekend, the reality star Snapchatted a slew of pics and videos of what appears to be another new four-legged friend. In one vid, the little guy (or girl) stands a few feet back from some of Kylie's other dogs. "He's having trouble fitting in lol," she joked. At last count, the reality star's dog brood was up to eight, including two new Greyhound puppies.

Michelle Williams re-pierces Busy Philipps' ear
Ouch! Besties and Critics Choice girl-dates Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps had a rough night after the awards show on Sunday, Dec., 11 — and not because of any afterparties. "OK, so we have to re-pierce my ear basically because I changed my [earrings] out before it was time and Michelle has to put it back in and it hurts!" Busy says in a video posted on Snapchat (via JustJared) showing her pal sticking an earring through the not-yet healed hole in her lobe. "You guys, why are we like teenagers?" she wondered. "This is so dumb!" On the bright side, maybe playing ear-piercer-in-chief helped take the sting out of Michelle's Best Supporting Actress loss to Viola Davis — even if it put the sting in poor Busy's ears.
Kanye West tour update
Kanye West won't be going back on the road anytime, in spite of rumors to the contrary.
