Kylie Jenner shares a sweet b-day message with Travis Scott
Travis Scott's main squeeze is all about the gifts on his 28th birthday. First, the makeup mogul got a billboard for Travis, which she had emblazoned with the words, "Happy birthday, daddy," and photos of herself and the couple's daughter, Stormi. She also threw the rapper a massive Marvel-themed party, which was reportedly attended by multiple family members. Then, on Tuesday, April 30, Kylie shared one last loving birthday sentiment — and a flirtatious suggestion that they expand their family again. "Watching you evolve into the partner, friend, son, and father you are today has been so fulfilling," she wrote on a slideshow on Instagram (via Us Weekly). "My real life bestie & hubby all wrapped into one. i love you and I'm so so proud of you. happy happy birthday 🎉🎁." Before signing off, she added that they should mess "around and have another baby." Happy birthday, Travis!
Robert Pattinson gets candid about his exes and keeping his private life private
After a high-profile romance with — and split from — his "Twilight" series costar, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson , perhaps understandably, started keeping his private life as private as possible. But in a new interview with The Sunday Times (via Elle), the "High Life" star shares a few rare details about his experience managing relationships under the spotlight. Asked, for example, if he's on good terms with Kristen and his ex-fiancee, FKA Twigs, he assures the writer that, "yes, yes," he's pals with both women. He also sounds less than pleased with the fact that the man who's now president once tweeted about Rob's dating life, posting in 2012, "Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again—just watch. He can do much better!" His close friend Katy Perry, meanwhile, has birthday correspondence from the past five presidents hanging up in her bathroom. "It's so f—— cool, like five presidents! I got a tweet," says Robert. "That's my equivalent. She gets five presidential letters. I get relationship advice in a tweet." Finally, when the magazine asked Rob to talk about his current rumored girlfriend, model Suki Waterhouse, the actor explained why he's so intent on keeping such matters to himself. After asking, "do I have to [talk about her]," he explained: "If you let people in, it devalues what love is. If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you'd think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better. I can't understand how someone can walk down the street holding hands, and it's the same as when I do it and a hundred people are taking your photo. The line between when you're performing and when you're not will eventually get washed away and you'll go completely mad."
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry had the Queen over as their first guest at Frogmore Cottage
When Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan relocated to Frogmore Cottage, their first visitor was not Harry's brother, Prince William, but his grandmother, the Queen, who had given the expectant couple the home as a gift. "Her Majesty wanted to formally welcome the Sussexes to their new home so she was their first visitor," a "royal source" told The Sun recently. "After all, they've practically moved into her back garden. She visited with other family members and Harry and Meghan were delighted to show them round. The Queen was at Windsor Castle at Easter and wanted to see Meghan before she has the baby." Later on Easter, Harry joined Queen Elizabeth, plus William and Duchess Kate at St. George's Chapel for Easter service. Meghan opted out of the event given how close she is to her due date — and she was likely missed. "Meghan and the Queen come from two very different backgrounds and generations. But there's a warmth between the two that is genuine and loving. Whenever they're together, they always have a giggle," a source told Us Weekly, adding that the Queen "seems really interested in hearing Meghan's thoughts on the world."

Wilmer told Demi, who smiled and laughed. During their hang, Wilmer even asked the singer to get in touch with him later this week, telling her, "I'm done with work on Wednesday, so holla at your boy!"

Gabrielle Union opens up her surrogacy process
Between promoting her new show, "LA's Finest," wrapping up "Being Mary Jane," covering her "America's Got Talent" judge duties and developing projects for her production company, Gabrielle Union is in a decidedly busy phase of her life. She also happens to be a new mom, though, and as she tells Glamour in the mag's new cover story, she and her husband Dwayne Wade remain committed to using their celebrity status to talk in real terms about parenthood — and the challenges they faced along the way to welcoming their daughter, Kaavia James. "Part of the journey is being OK with how others — specifically moms — are viewing you, judging you, praising you," Gabrielle explains. "So much of Instagram life is creating these perfect illusions, right? People have kids — even through surrogacy or IVF or whatever—and the kids just appear. Rarely do we hear how … What was the journey? Without understanding what got to baby, it feels like easy and overnight. And that's not the case." For Gabrielle, that journey included nine miscarriages, an adenomyosis diagnosis and finally finding a surrogate so she and Dwayne could still have a child. "The only reason I heard about certain doctors or treatments or new technologies or new procedures was through a whisper network, and mainly from women who did not look like me," Gabrielle says, explaining how the surrogacy and fertility process was not something that's discussed much or comfortably among people of color. The star hopes to change the conversation around color and representation onscreen, too. Her production company is working to create roles and writing jobs akin to what Shonda Rhimes did with "Scandal." "When the script for the pilot came out, every black actress wanted it because there was nothing like it," Gabrielle says. "I'm trying to create that same feeling, but a bunch of those. There are so many different creators of color who are creating amazing content, and I want to be a part of that."
Petition for probe into Jussie Smollett criminal case handling dropped
There's still some lingering confusion around Jussie Smollett's alleged hate-crime hoax and what sparked Cook County state attorney Kim Foxx to suddenly drop all 16 felony counts against the actor. According to Page Six, two petitions were filed in Chicago asking for a special prosecutor to investigate the handling of the "Empire" star's case. One petition was reportedly withdrawn this week. It seems Saani Mohammed, a former prosecutor in Chicago, withdrew his petition because retired Judge Sheila O'Brien has already filed something similar and followed through with subpoenaes and other requests, according to the Chicago Tribune. O'Brien claims "Foxx misled the public into believing that Smollett's case was handled like any other prosecution and without influence."
Anne Heche and her former 'Hung' costar Thomas Jane are reportedly dating
Talk about a slow burner … A decade after they starred together on "Hung," Anne Heche and Thomas Jane are reportedly dating. That's according to Page Six, which reports the two have been spotted together recently in New York City at a celebration for Joel Souza's film "Crown Vic," and again this month at the Sarasota Film Festival. Anne was previously married to Coleman Laffoon and dated Ellen DeGeneres, while Thomas was married to Patricia Arquette. Anne and Thomas are also set to appear on the big screen together again in the forthcoming thriller from Peter Facinelli, "Hour of Lead."
Sarah Silverman talks musical memoir, Trump and her potential for a White House bid
The world is finally going to get the musical adaptation of Sarah Silverman's memoir she's been working on for years. Deadline reports that during a "Tribeca Talks: Storytellers" panel at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, the comic said she expects the show, based on her 2010 book "The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee" will premiere "within the next year" at New York City's Atlantic Theatre Company. "It's musical. I'm not in it," she told the crowd, explaining that it stars a 10-year-old version of herself instead. Speaking to Mike Birbiglia, Sarah also talked about her politics-minded "I Love You, America" series. "What [Donald] Trump is great at is giving [angry people] something to blame, which is others. Or 'the other,'" she said of the president, whose influence figures prominently in her show. "I see a big difference between the liars and the lied to," she added. Asked if she'd ever consider a White House run, Sarah said probably not. "I think I've had too much therapy and I'm not being president," she explained. "I have too many skeletons in my closet… I'm an exhibitionist. I want everyone to know everything."
Kim Kardashian West's basin-less sinks cost a bundle
Remember those basin-less sinks Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West showed off in their house this month? Turns out they probably cost a serious bundle. People checked in with a few experts and discovered that Tamara Day of "Bargain Mansions" guesses the sinks cost about $25,750. "It's a tricky balance getting the slope just right without severe angles, so the water stays in one place! Only the best fabricator can accomplish this," she explained. Stephen Fanuka, meanwhile, estimated a higher price tag, telling the mag the couple likely paid something around $32,500, especially given the cost of the materials.
Megan Fox requests to dismiss divorce filing from Brian Austin Green
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are very much together — and apparently, staying that way. Four years after Megan filed to divorce her husband, she filed papers requesting the dismissal of the divorce request, according to The Blast and "Extra." The couple's initial split was reportedly related to conflicts like who stays with their children when Megan is working. They announced they were having another baby a year after Megan's 2015 filing.
