Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves

LOS ANGELES, California -- Actor Matthew McConaughey's Brazilian girlfriend has given birth to a boy, People Magazine reported. The child -- the first for McConaughey and model Camila Alves -- was born Monday, July 7, the report quoted the actor's publicist as saying. According to OK! Magazine, the couple named their son, Levi Alves McConaughey.

The baby was born at 6:22 p.m. in Los Angeles, weighing in at 7 lbs., 4 oz. McConaughey's oldest brother, Rooster, shared their elation. "Oh, it's going to be fun! He'll make a really good dad because he's got a lot of patience. I'm excited for him. It's about time."

McConaughey, 38, said in January that he and Alves were "stoked and wowed" by the pending arrival. He started dating Alves, a native of Rio De Janeiro, after breaking up with Spanish actress Penelope Cruz in 2006.

McConaughey announced the new arrival in a posting on his Web site. "Camila and I were side by side the entire time. We are both tired and elated, and are so happy to have created the greatest miracle in the world -- having a child and making a family. Now comes the greatest adventure -- raising one, together."

Alves, a model and handbag designer, recently said she plans to take time off once the baby arrives. "More important than anything is that I have a peaceful life and a peaceful home," she said.

Clay Aiken Welcomes Newest 'Claymate'

RALEIGH, North Carolina -- Former "American Idol" Runner-Up Clay Aiken is a father. The 29-year-old crooner from Raleigh announced the birth of Parker Foster Aiken on his Web site's blog. "No hyphens. One first name," he wrote. "One middle name. One last name."

The baby's mother is Jaymes Foster, Aiken's friend and record producer whom he met while performing on "American Idol." Numerology truly must be on the tiny Aiken's side. Their son was born at 8:08 a.m. on Friday, August 8, making his official birthdate 8-08-2008 at 8:08 a.m.

Aiken's mother, Faye Parker, told Raleigh television station, WRAL-TV, her grandson was born in a North Carolina hospital weighing in at 6 pounds, 2 ounces and was 19 inches long. Faye added that her son was "smiling from ear-to-ear" when he first saw the baby.

"The little man is healthy, happy, and as loud as his daddy," Aiken wrote in a statement on his official Web site. "Mama Jaymes is doing quite well also. The Aiken family, the Foster family, and the Parker family are all thrilled."

In May, news broke that the popular singer was expecting his first child with Foster through artificial insemination. When not in North Carolina, Aiken reportedly stays with Foster (who is thought to be in her late 40s) in her house in Los Angeles. The pair plans to share the platonic parenting of young Parker.

Aiken was a favorite of fans during the second season of "American Idol," where he finished second to Ruben Studdard. His album, "Measure of a Man," went double platinum in 2003, and he made his Broadway debut this spring in "Monty Python's Spamalot."

Jewel and Rodeo Champion Ty Murray

Jewel has taken a shine to matrimony. The singer, born Jewel Kilcher, eloped with longtime boyfriend, bull-riding champion Ty Murray in the Bahamas Thursday, August 7, reports People. The wedding took place at The Cove Atlantis.

"She wore a traditional wedding gown, while Ty wore his favorite blue jeans, white shirt and cowboy hat," says Jewel's representative. "The couple is very happy and look forward to enjoying their honeymoon."

The private ceremony and elopement is in keeping with the couple's penchant for keeping their relationship low profile. They've been dating for 10 years and last year, Jewel had stated that marrying wasn't urgent. At a charity event in Nashville days before the wedding, Jewel, 34, said of marriage, "It's something that needs to be taken seriously."

Jewel and Ty's Romantic Nuptials

Newlyweds Jewel and Ty Murray share a cozy moonlit moment

Jewel sure knows how to pull off a hush-hush wedding. Without family, friends (or paparazzi!) knowing, the singer and rodeo star, Ty Murray eloped to the Bahamas on Thursday, August 7. "To pull off the wedding quietly made it magical," Jewel told People Magazine the following day.

Held at The Cove Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, the very private affair included just two guests: Jewel's former keyboard player Jason Freese, who officiated and his wife, Amy. The newlywed couple found out Freese had been ordained online.

At sunset, as Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long" played from their private cabana, Jewel, 34, wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown, met her groom, sporting jeans and cowboy boots, in the sand to recite their handwritten vows. "I said that I'll try to make our lives the best piece of art I've ever done," she said.

Murray, 38, secretly proposed to the singer on her birthday, May 23, and the couple decided to elope since "we feel that's what marriage is

As I am sure you'll understand, we needed time to wait for results and tell our families. Thank you for all you kindness, good wishes and support (even if it was based on speculation!)."

Lina and Tony Dovolani

It's a ballroom pair for "Dancing with the Stars" professional ballroom dancer Tony Dovolani and his wife, Lina. The couple welcomed the little boy and a girl in the early morning of Monday, September 8 at a hospital near their Connecticut home.

The beaming parent's first son, Adrian Driton Dovolani, took the lead by taking the stage at 3:14 a.m., weighing 7 lbs. Lina and Tony's newest daughter, Ariana Dovolani, followed her brother's entrance 14 minutes later, weighing 7 lbs., 10 oz.

"We are so happy, I can't stop smiling," an emotional Dovolani told People Magazine in a short interview. "Lina was such a champ, and she looks incredible right now." This is the third child for the couple, who have been married for eight years. Daughter Luana turned three in August.

Dovolani is gearing up for season seven of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," whose new season premieres September 22. He was in the middle of rehearsals with his celebrity partner, Susan Lucci, when he got the call that Lina was in labor.

"Susan was so understanding," says Dovolani, who felt bad about cutting their rehearsal short. Lucci had to snap him out of it. "She told me, 'What are you waiting for? Go!'"

Jennifer Garner's nursery is abloom with more than Violet.

The Catch and Release star and hubby Ben Affleck have welcomed their second daughter, Affleck's rep confirmed to E! News Tuesday.

Bennifer 2.0's new addition joins 3-year-old sister Violet in the running to be the most-photographed child of the 21st century.

No other details were available, but Garner's rep said in a statement, "Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck gave birth to a healthy baby girl."

Mom and Dad were spotted walking into Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last Wednesday and, considering Garner had looked so prominently pregnant for so long, it seemed as good a time as any for a birth day.

It wasn't to be, apparently, so hopefully the former Alias heroine didn't mind brandishing that bump for just a little longer. In the weeks leading up to the delivery, she was spotted having coffee with a pal in Santa Monica and ferrying Violet around the farmers market in Pacific Palisades, not far from her Brentwood home.

"She's wonderful. She's probably the best mother I've ever witnessed," her adoring former Alias costar, Victor Garber, told People in October, adding that the 36-year-old actress had "never been more beautiful."

Garner sort-of-confirmed pregnancy rumors in August, telling Access Hollywood, "We're so excited, obviously."

NEW YORK (Associated Press) -- Life imitates art at the Fox series "Fringe," where co-stars Anna Torv and Mark Valley have wed.

Torv's representative, Jen Turner, says the couple were married in December. She didn't provide any details.

Torv, 29, plays FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham on "Fringe." Valley, 44, played Dunham's partner and secret lover, agent John Scott, when the series began last fall. But their relationship took a mysterious turn when Scott was seemingly killed and exposed as Dunham's apparent betrayer.
