The fact that Jordan and Chelsea managed to the keep the birth under wraps shouldn't come as a surprise — they are pretty good at keeping secrets.

The comedians started dating in 2014, got engaged in November 2015 and quietly got married under the radar. They didn't 'fess up until April 2016 when Jordan appeared on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" and let the cat out of the bag.

Chelsea also confirmed their marriage with an adorable post on Instagram.

"❤️eloped a bit ago🌺❤our only witness was this lil guy️ 🐃," she captioned a pic of her bouquet and their dog wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

According to TMZ, Jen filed for divorce on Oct. 30.

The former couple has maintained a tight relationship despite their split. In fact, there have been rumors over the years that they could be reconciling. However, Jen poured cold water on that rumor in 2018 when she referred to the "Spider-Man" star as the "greatest ex-husband."

The couple share two children: Ruby, 13, and Otis, 11.

"After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple," they said in a statement at the time. "As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship."

Ron Perlman begs judge to declare him single so he can remarry

Ron Perlman desperately wants to be single — at least temporarily.

The "Hellboy" star is in the midst of divorcing his wife of 38 years, Opal, but he's currently engaged to another woman. Ron and his new lady love, Allison Dunbar, are looking to get hitched sooner rather than later, but the actor's first marriage is preventing that. 

According to TMZ, Ron is requesting a bifurcation of his divorce, which basically means he's asking the judge to legally grant him single status while the divorce plays itself out. 

"I believe terminating the marriage as soon as legally possible would be in our best interests in that it would reduce the emotional strain and pressure I have personally observed in both [Opal Stone Perlman] and myself, and it would allow me to move forward with my life," he writes in his paperwork.

Ron and Opal split in November 2019.

On-set injury

Stephen Amell injured on set of Starz series

Stephen Amell is having a hard time staying on the set of his new Starz series, this time due to a stunt gone wrong.

TV Line reported on Oct. 30 that the actor injured his back on the set of the wrestling series "Heels," but the full extent of the injury isn't known.

"While performing a stunt on the set of 'Heels' this week, Stephen Amell sustained an injury to his back," Starz said in a statement. "Following a medical evaluation, he is now resting and recovering at home in anticipation of his return to set. Production continues as Stephen recuperates."

Producers for the show said all safety protocols were being followed at the time of the on-set stunt.

The accident comes not long after Stephen revealed he lost 15 pounds after testing positive for COVID-19, which kept him away from "Heels."

On the "Inside of You" podcast, Stephen said he thought his positive test "destroyed" the Starz series.

"I'm No. 1 on the call sheet and I work every day more or less," he  said. "I'm in my head going, 'S - - t, they're going to have to shut down the production. We're not yet done with the first block of two episodes. Did I just ruin this?' "

Stephen, 39, said he suffered from loss of appetite, chills, dizziness and a plugged ear. His focus, though, was often on work.

"My anxiety came from the idea that I would be letting hundreds of people down," he said. "Not everyone has the luxury of taking two weeks off. In fact, most people don't. We are in the midst of a global pandemic and times are tough for a lot of people."

Shannen Doherty on Stage 4 cancer battle: It's not 'a death sentence'

Shannen Doherty is giving fans an update on her battle with Stage 4 cancer, and the news is good.

"I'm good. I love it when people say, 'We're praying for you.' … but there comes a point where you go, 'I got this. Like I'm fine, I'm good.' There's a lot of people in the world that could use prayers and I'm feeling great," the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" actress told Sarah Michelle Gellar in an interview for Entertainment Tonight.

Shannen has been quite open about her health in recent years. In 2017, she announced she was in remission after a two-year battle with breast cancer. Then, in February 2020, she revealed she had Stage 4 cancer.

Still, Shannen is keeping her head up.

"I have an amazing medical team behind me," she said in the new chat. "I'm doing better than OK. I'm doing well. I feel strong and healthy and confident and happy."

Since her reveal, Shannen has made a point to educate her fans and the public on the real definition of "Stage 4."

"I want to really push for education and awareness and raise more money, and I want people to not hear Stage 4 cancer and think of the person as gray and falling over," she explained. "You get written off so quickly even though you're still vital and healthy and happy.

She added, "People instantly think it's a death sentence and it's not."

Wedding bells

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost marry in New York

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost have tied the knot.

The duo said "I do" last weekend in a small ceremony in Palisades, New York, TMZ said.

Scarlett and Colin allowed Meals on Wheels America to make the announcement, as it photoshopped a picture of the Staten Island Ferry with cans dangling behind it, much like a traditional honeymoon scene in which cans hang from the back of a care. "Jost Married" was embedded in the image.

"We're thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and love ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC," the post said. "Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica."

Meals on Wheels asked fans of the couple to consider donating to the organization as a form of a wedding gift. 

The Instagram post didn't indicate where the couple got hitched, but many suspect it was at a home in Palisades that Scarlett purchased in 2018.

The actress and "SNL" star got engaged in May 2019 after two years of dating.

Last year, Colin reportedly joked about marriage after taking the stage during a celiac disease research benefit.

"I'm getting married and it's such a crazy thing. … I was so scared of marriage for so long because every time I talked to someone who just got married or was about to get married, it's like, 'Oh my God, you got to do it… What could go wrong?'" he said. "Then you talk to someone who's been married for five years, and they're like, 'Don't rush into it… you have your whole life ahead of you. Don't have kids. They're the worst.'"

This is Scarlett's third marriage, but Colin's first.

Duane Chapman honors late wife on her birthday

Duane Chapman is fondly remembering his late wife on what would have been her 53rd birthday.

On Oct. 29, Duane, more commonly known as Dog The Bounty Hunter, posted a photo of Beth Chapman to his Instagram.  

"You are celebrating this day with Jesus and all his angels," he captioned the photo. "That's the only thing that gets us through without you."

While wishing Beth happy birthday, Duane added, "we miss you & love you."

Beth, who was Duane's sidekick on his "Dog The Bounty Hunter" reality TV show, passed away in June 2019 at the age of 51 following a battle with throat cancer. Following her death, Duane was under tremendous stress and refused to watch the reality show, which chronicled Beth's cancer battle.

Dog has since found love again, as he's engaged to Francie Frane, who lost her husband to cancer six months before Beth died. Shortly before their engagement this spring, Dog posted a photo of Francie, while also referencing his late wife.

"I scream & Cry Beth where are you why did you leave me then I look up & see you Francie & the pain turns to a smile I LOVE YOU WOMAN !!" he captioned the snap.

Dog has often posted images of Beth on social media, having done so this past Mother's Day and on their most recent wedding anniversary.

While some have criticized Dog and Francie— who went public with their romance on Instagram in April — for moving too fast, they say they know they're on the right path. "You know there's always going to be haters," he said, "and I probably arrested half of them."

Tiffany Haddish and Common hit with split rumors

Is there trouble in paradise for Tiffany Haddish and Common?

The couple of less than three months is being hit with split rumors, and it seems to all be tied to social media. Eagle-eyed Instagram users noticed that Common has unfollowed the actress, which is often considered a modern day signal of a split.

Tiffany, however, still follows Common.

Over the summer, the comedian confirmed that she and Common were dating. "This is hands down the best relationship I've ever been in," she said on Steve-O's podcast Wild Ride. "Knock on wood! I've lost 20 pounds since I've been in this relationship."

She added, "I feel more confident in me and it's not him that's doing it. I'm just way happier and it's like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back. It seems like he does anyways. And I love it. I love him."

Recently, Tiffany posted some cryptic messages on Instagram about exes contacting her.

"Boy. Stop reaching out to me trying to be my friend, I don't want to be your friend. Plus you got a whole women and Babies on the way and we been done for years," she said. "But you want a windfall of money, and want me to make that wind go? Huh hahaha if I thought that would remove you from my entire life I would. Just ct like I never said I love you. cause who I was loving wasn't the real you. When the real you showed up I was disappointed and disgusted, so please go away forever. PEACE AND HAPPINESS BE UPON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY."

Nick Jonas floats funny sports conspiracy theory

If you're a professional athlete, maybe happiness begins with a Jonas Brothers concert.

On Oct. 28, just one day after the Los Angeles Dodgers won their first World Series title in 32 years, Nick Jonas floated a funny conspiracy theory that links that title and other recent championships to recent Jonas Brothers concerts.

Nick is calling it the "Jonas Blessing," which he says is the opposite of the years-long "Drake curse," which saw many of his favorite teams lose. 

"The Dodgers won the World Series last night, and yet, no one is talking about the very, very obvious theme here," Nick said in a Twitter video. "To fully understand this conspiracy, we have to back things up to September 22, 2019."

On that particular date, the JoBros played a show in Kansas City, Missouri, which was attended by Patrick Mahomes. A few months later, Patrick and the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl, and the quarterback was named MVP.

Nick then spoke of a Dec. 10, 2019, show in Arizona, which was attended by Dodgers superstar Cody Bellinger. The singer included a picture from Oct. 27 that shows Cody holding up the World Series trophy.

"Last, but not least, certainly not least, Lewis Hamilton attended the Jonas Brothers concert in Paris on February 22," Nick said. "Just last week, he won his 92nd Grand Prix — the most of all time."

Nick theorized that the first step toward winning championships is attending live JoBros shows, calling it the "key to success."

"And just remember, it's not about how hard you practice, how naturally gifted you are," he said, "it's about the 'Year 3000,' 'When You Look Me in the Eyes,' 'S.O.S.,' and of course, 'Sucker.'"

Brad Pitt and girlfriend split: Report

Brad Pitt is single again.

The Oscar-winning actor and German model Nicole Poturalski have split, Page Six reported on Oct. 28.

A source told the site that the breakup isn't exactly new, indicating it happened "a while back."

"It was never all that serious as it was cracked up to be," the source said, adding that the romance was "totally over."

Brad and Nicole were first linked in August when they were seen boarding a private jet in Paris and taking off for the South of France. There was some scandalous discussion about the romance at the time because Nicole is married. However, reports said that Nicole and her husband have an "open marriage."

Whereas Nicole is believed to be in Germany, Brad is now back in Los Angeles, and he recently voiced an advertisement for presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Earlier this month, Nicole, who has been described as a doppelgänger of Brad's ex Angelina Jolie, felt the burden of dating such a high-profile personality, noting that she was suddenly the target of trolls on social media.

"Hey guys, I have been wondering since forever why people leave hateful comments?" she asked on her Instagram Story. "Why? What is the benefit? Just in [general] I want to understand the train of thoughts. Because I don't get it. It's just so rude and sad for those commenting."

"And just don't follow people you don't want to see or don't like their content. Easy. So just be nice and kind. Try," she continued. 

Nicole's words came just weeks after an Instagram user trolled "why do you hate Brad and Angelina?" At the time, Nicole simply responded, "not hating anyone."
