Ryan Phillippe hits the Firefly Music Festival with his lookalike son
Reese Witherspoon and her daughter, Ava Phillippe's minime vibes have been well documented but it turns out the son she shares with her ex, Ryan Phillippe, is a bit of a minime himself. Thing is, fans aren't sure if the 15-year-old looks more like his mom or his dad. Ryan and Deacon spent the weekend in Ryan's home state of Delaware, where they checked out the Firefly Music Festival. After seeing a handful of photos Ryan posted of him with his son, followers seemed split as to whether Deacon's the spitting image of Ryan or Reese. "We had fun @brckhmptn and @travisscott killd [sic]," he captioned one photo of the pair, earning comments that ranged from, "Ur [sic] kid is your twin! to "Apple doesn't fall far from the tree!" As more folks chimed in, though, the opinions appeared to be split down the middle. "Your son looks like the mom. Mini Reese," wrote one fans, "He is Reese's twin!" wrote another. Ryan may not have been feeling the commentary, either way. As Us Weekly points out, he once told Entertainment Tonight he finds such comparisons uncomfortable. "I feel like saying, 'She has her own face,'" he said of comparisons between Reese and Ava. "Let her have her own face, you know? I mean, it's weird, because isn't that obvious? Who else are they going to look like, you know? I always find that such a weird thing, like [Ava] looks exactly like her mother; who else is she going to look like? It's an odd thing that people fixate on that."

Blake Shelton says he and Gwen Stefani have 'never been doing better'
After four years of dating — and nearly as many years of engagement rumors — Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are just happy to have each other, whether a wedding's in their future or not. "First of all, the rumors stuff, I'm not gonna sit here and say that it makes me mad. It's funny. I've learned over the years just to take that for what it is," Blake recently told Entertainment Tonight of speculation around what's next for the couple. "If I am somehow, and Gwen is somehow, newsworthy enough that they have to make up stories about us just to have something to say, then I guess that's a good problem to have. You know, I gotta say that we couldn't be happier, and we've never been doing better," he explained, adding that while their years together have "gotta lead somewhere," they won't be making any kind of announcement in the tabloids. The "Voice" star also opened up about what makes Gwen so special to him. "She's never not been supportive or a cheerleader, just the most encouraging person I've ever had in my life, on any level," he said. "It's unbelievable how supportive she is. I tell her this all the time, and she doesn't realize it, but Gwen's one of these people that I learn so much from, because no matter what the situation is, she has a way of looking at something from every angle possible, and understanding if there's turmoil or something going on, instead of just jumping to conclusions or reacting, it's, 'Well, here's why they may feel that way.'" Gwen, who returns to "The Voice" this fall, taking over for Adam Levine, has made similarly smitten sounding comments about Blake, whom she regularly refers to as her "best friend."

Ryan Reynolds' mom calls him out after fake Amazon review
Ryan Reynolds' mom knows her son's sarcasm when she sees it! Over the weekend, the actor shared what appeared to be an Amazon user's review of Aviation Gin, the booze Ryan owns a stake in. The review was allegedly by someone named Champ Nightengale (ahem), who gushed about how much he loved the stuff. "As soon as I tried the Gin I knew right away, it was amazing," the review read. "It was the smoothest Gin I'd ever tried and went down really easily. I had a lot. When I woke up the next day, I mentioned to my wife Linda that last night must have been a REAL blowout because I slept in my clothes. Even my shoes! I also noticed it was really hard to look out the window at the Seattle skyline. Partly because of the bright sun (I've always been sensitive to light) but also because I don't live in Seattle). I live in Coral Gables, Florida. Also, it's important to note, until that morning, I'd never met anyone named Linda." Ryan shared a photo of the review on his Instagram feed on Sunday, June 23 — along with a note about who was actually behind it. "I loved this review of Aviation Gin someone sent me after I wrote it," he joked. The post caught his mom, Tammy Reynolds' attention. "Ahhhh … yes … I thought I heard my son's voice in that narrative!" she replied. Cue one more quip from Ryan, who added, "Mom, you say that about every episode of CSI Miami."

Chrissy Teigen knew John Legend would be a great dad because he 'treats women as equals'
Father's Day 2019 has come and gone but Chrissy Teigen isn't quite done praising her husband, John Legend, for being an amazing dad. The model and cookbook author shares a 3-year-old daughter, Luna, and 1-year-old son, Miles, with the singer and as she told Us Weekly over the weekend, the signs he was cut out for fatherhood were there from the beginning. "I knew … as soon as I met him," she said. "He's very warm and loving. I knew he'd be a great father to a daughter because he has so many female friends. He has so much respect for women and he treats them as equals. He's a sensitive soul, but he's also business savvy and straight to the point. The way he speaks to our daughter is very interactive and very adult. He'd wake up with me every single time I'd wake up so just I wouldn't feel like I was alone those first two months of having a baby." Though Chrissy knew John would make a great dad from Day One, she also said she didn't push him to get married and start a family. "We grew together," she explained. "We learned each other's personalities. He was on tour the first year we were dating and we did our own thing. I never begged him to settle down. Our vibe was the same. I didn't want him to look back and have regrets about who he wasn't with or the things he should've done," she continued, before quipping. "I let him do all that, and now he can't say s—."
Glastonbury organizer weighs in on Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performance rumors
Fans of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's "A Star Is Born" chemistry won't be treated to any Jackson and Ally magic at Glastonbury this year, despite rumors to the contrary. That's according to one of the organizers, Emily Eavis, who tweeted on Monday, June 24, about speculation that began over the weekend suggesting the movie's stars had a secret performance planned for the annual festival, which kicks off this week in England. "Before this one gets out of control… the answer is no, that isn't happening," she posted after learning a DJ had said on the air Sunday that Bradley was talking to her and her production colleague, Nick Dewey, about an appearance there (via Us Weekly). She added that fans would be able to see the movie in the Pilton Palais cinema tent at 4:30 on Friday. The reference to Bradley's appearance was actually made in a podcast taped last fall, a year after he crashed a stage at the festival to shoot a scene for the film.

Janet Jackson believes Michael Jackson's legacy will go on
A decade after her brother's death, Janet Jackson is sure Michael Jackson's legacy will remain intact. "I love it when I see kids emulating him, when adults still listen to his music. It just lets you know the impact that my family has had on the world," the singer told the Sunday Times in a new interview. "I hope I'm not sounding arrogant in any way — I'm just stating what is. It's really all God's doing, and I'm just thankful for that." Asked about the allegations Michael sexually abused Wade Robson and James Safechuck — stories central to the controversial documentary, "Leaving Neverland," Janet would not comment (her late brother's estate is in the process of suing HBO for airing the film). But she was candid about the pressure to become musical stars that her father, Joe Jackson, put on her and her siblings when they were young. "You miss out on your childhood, you really miss out," she said. "You don't get to do all the fun things that kids do. I wanted to do gymnastics, but that couldn't happen because I was busy working. But at least I had my brothers and sisters. They were my best friends." She added that she was able to talk with Joe before his death, hinting that she let him know how his strict upbringing affected her. "I felt that I did say everything I needed to say to my father [before he died]. I was thankful for the time that I did have with him, with Eissa, the three of us together. Being together with my father in the end," she said. Looking ahead, she said she wants to encourage her "beautiful son" Eissa to pursue whatever he wishes.
