Kylie Jenner officially became a mother when she gave birth to daughter Stormi Webster on Feb. 1, though she waited until Super Bowl Sunday to reveal the happy news. In an Instagram birth announcement, Kylie — who never publicly confirmed her pregnancy — said, "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you're used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness. Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life-changing experience I've had in my entire life and I'm actually going to miss it. I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn't wait to share this blessing. I've never felt love and happiness like this I could burst! Thank you for understanding." Stormi's dad, rapper Travis Scott, later told TMZ his little girl is "beautiful."

On Feb. 15, 2018, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced that they'd separated after two and a half years of marriage and seven years as a couple. The announcement came after multiple tabloids claimed the duo's relationship was on the rocks. "Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly," they said in a statement. "Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another." The split was "mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year," the statement added. A source told E! News that the actors, who spent long periods of time apart due to work and personal preference — he missed Manhattan, she wanted Los Angeles to be their home — simply weren't a good match. "Jennifer and Justin fell in love hard and fast and yet they were never really suited to one another. He was a New York hipster that loved the alternative lifestyle and Jennifer was living a much more reclusive life when they first started to fall in love," a source said. "The initial chemistry between them made it easy for them to ignore their differences and incompatibility."

After reports surfaced, Amy confirmed the nuptials, sharing several images from the ceremony and reception on Instagram. Wedding attendees included Jennifer Lawrence, Larry David, Chelsea Handler, David Spade, Judd Apatow and Jake Gyllenhaal, among others. Us reported that a comedian officiated and that the bride and groom recited vows they'd written themselves. "It was a very chill wedding. It was thrown together last-minute," a source told Us. "Most of the guests found out the wedding was happening on Tuesday from a text message sent out by Amy on Sunday. It was like, 'Hey, this is happening. If you can make it, great. If not, no worries.'

She marked irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split and is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their three kids, Oliver, 10, and twins John and Gustav, 8.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are back at it again. A Feb. 12 report in The Sun quoted a source who said, "They're back on. Katy wants to make things work this time around. She tried, but she couldn't cut him off. She cares too much about him. This time, they're keeping things low key — but they're back together." There is some credence to the report. The two both vacationed in the Maldives at the same time recently. They have both been liking and commenting on each other's Instagram photos of late too. Also, when they split in February 2017, friends implied that no one would be surprised if Katy and Orlando got back together.

Fergie was widely criticized on Feb. 18 after she tried to get a little too fancy while singing the national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game. Many of the players on the court couldn't hide their confusion upon hearing her sexed-up version of the anthem — the looks on their faces said it all. Comedian Leslie Jones took to social media to ask, "Why did this happen?" Charles Barkley called it "different." Several in the crowd could be seen trying not to laugh during the performance. The next day, Fergie broke her silence about the botched anthem. "I've always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA," she said. "I'm a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn't strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best."
After 14 years of marriage, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart have ended things. The actress filed for divorce in Los Angeles on Feb. 16, citing irreconcilable differences. The date of separation is listed as "TBD." In addition to spousal support, Rebecca is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple's two children, Billie, 7, and Georgia, 6.

A wrongful death civil lawsuit against Jim Carrey has been dropped, Feb. 1 reports revealed. Jim had been in a long, drawn-out legal battle with the family of Cathriona White, his ex-girlfriend who committed suicide via an intentional drug overdose in 2015 (she used some of Jim's medications). The Irish makeup artist's mother and estranged husband blamed Jim for her death. Jim countersued and said he was being extorted. Now both lawsuits have been dismissed with prejudice, which means neither side can refile (typically this means the case was settled out of court). "The case and all claims against Jim Carrey have been dismissed," a rep for the actor told ABC News. "He is extremely grateful to everyone in his life who supported him throughout this challenging episode."
John Stamos is a married man. The "Full House" alum married his girlfriend of nearly two years, Caitlin McHugh, on Feb. 3. E!

It's all happening… right? The Spice Girls are reuniting and going on tour, according to a Feb. 7 report from TMZ. All the women — Victoria Beckham included — will reunite this summer for a tour that will see them performing in England and the United States, the report said. There is no plan for the women to record new music, and there is no plan for a Las Vegas residency show, as some have speculated. Planning is in the early stages, but "the tour is going to happen," the report said. The group's original manager, Simon Fuller, is overseeing everything. However, a few days later, Victoria said, "I'm not going on tour. The girls aren't going on tour." TMZ, however, stood by its story, reporting on Feb. 15 that the ladies had signed their contracts. Fingers crossed that "girl power" shall rule again!
Luke Wilson was hailed as a hero on Feb. 12 after he pulled a woman from a wrecked car in the wake of a fatal auto accident. According to Los Angeles news station KTLA, Luke was driving in Los Angeles when a Ferrari sideswiped his SUV and then collided with a BMW. Luke got out of his vehicle and ran to help the driver of the BMW, as she was stuck in the flipped car. A witness told People magazine, "I reached in through a window to calm her down. Luke went around the back, to the trunk of the car. We pried it open, she was able to unbuckle herself, and Luke started to pull her out from the back. We then both carried her to the curb." The driver of the Ferrari was pronounced dead at the scene.
It's over between Bristol Palin and her husband, Dakota Meyer. After less than two years of marriage, the couple called it quits because they just can't get along. TMZ first reported that the "Dancing With The Stars" alum and her military man were no longer living together or following each other on Instagram (a very millennial way of letting everyone know a relationship is over). Plus neither had been wearing their rings in recent social media pictures, and neither had been seen on each other's social media pages of late. The next day, it was discovered that Dakota filed for divorce on Jan. 29 in Austin, Texas. "The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between [Dakota] and [Bristol] that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation," he said in divorce documents. They're working on a custody plan for their two daughters.
