Steve Martin, 67, Becomes First-Time Dad

At 67 years old, Steve Martin is at last starring in his own real-life version of Parenthood! The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the beloved comic actor has quietly become a father for the first time, with his wife, Anne Stringfield, welcoming a child in December.

The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels star and Stringfield, 41, were recently spotted near their Los Angeles home with their newborn baby — whose gender and name have yet to be revealed. Says an insider to Page Six: “They’ve had a baby, and how they kept it a secret nobody knows . . . Steve’s very private.”

Actor, comedian, novelist and musician Martin divorced first wife, actress Victoria Tennant, in 1994 after eight years of marriage. He quietly wed Stringer — a writer and former New Yorker editor — in July 2007 at his L.A. home in a surprise ceremony officiated by former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels was best man, and other celeb guests included Tom Hanks, Carl Reiner and Eugene Levy.

Of the new bundle of joy, Martin and Stringfield “are thrilled,” the source tells Page Six. “They worked hard to have the baby.” Martin’s rep could not be reached for comment.

Jennifer Lopez Family Shopping Day In Beverly Hills

Jennifer Lopez’s latest shopping trip was fun for the whole family.

The Out of Sight star and boyfriend Casper Smart engaged in a little retail therapy with Lopez’s 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, in tow today in Beverly Hills.

They were a casual quartet, though Lopez still made for a glamorous photo op, even in jeans and glasses, with her hair tied up in a bun. (The fur-trimmed vest and stiletto booties may have helped, of course.)

Lopez spent holiday time with family in New York earlier this week, tweeting a “#bronxgirls” photo of herself and three cousins on Christmas Day and a pic of her father serving up turkey the night before.

“Cookin’ Clause #ChristmasEve#bestDADDYever #luckygirl,” she wrote.

Honey Boo Boo Child Falls Asleep During Dr. Drew Interview

How does 7-year-old Alana Thompson, aka “Honey Boo Boo child,” handle the harsh glare of the public?

Not very well, it seems.

In a new interview, Dr. Drew asks “Is it difficult to be on TV?” to a restless and barefoot Alana. Unenthused, she ignores the question and pretends to fall asleep on the TV doctor but after being pushed to answer by her mother June, Boo Boo wakes up to yell, “My fans come up to me and I hate it!”

It’s sad but it’s hard to look away, which is exactly the premise of TLC’s runaway hit “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” It’s either the show that everyone’s watching or the one that no one can stand.

Watch a preview of their interview above:

Kate Gosselin Gets Turned In To Child Protective Services

Robert Hoffman, who is a friend of Kate’s ex husband Jon Gosselin, just released his e-book: Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World. The book was pulled from Amazon within two days after two high-powered law firms took aim at the author.

Hoffman says he has Kate’s personal journal, emails, contracts, tax returns and more, all gathered (he says) from computer hard drives he retrieved from her trash.

And those journals, Hoffman alleges, reveal that Kate has been violent toward her children. Many of his allegations cannot be repeated by Radar as they are potentially libelous and lack independent substantiation.

In an email interview, Hoffman told Radar that he has reported Kate to the authorities for the sake of her children.

“I personally contacted Child Protection Services (sic) twice in 2010 when I found the journal,” Hoffman said, “I sent them copies of what I had and they told me they would look into it and that’s the last I heard. I’ve tried to talk to Kate several times in 2010 but she wouldn’t acknowledge my existence.”

Hoffman’s book has stoked the Jon versus Kate debate yet again and takes anti-Kate fervor to new heights as he alleges that she is out of control and repeats old charges of her fanatical freebie-seeking behavior.

His most incendiary charges concern her interaction with the children and her “personal journal” that he quotes from contains admissions of behavior that include spanking the children with a spoon and worse.

In his book, Hoffman claims to have spoken to hundreds of people, and he told Radar in the email interview: “My sources include former crew members who witnessed” the alleged behavior toward the children that caused him to call authorities.

William and Connolly, representing TLC and its parent network, alleges the book contains confidential information.

Hoffman goes on to say, “I can tell you that all of my information regarding Kate Gosselin used in the book was obtained by me personally through completely legal means.”

Hoffman also insists that his material from Kate’s computer is genuine and that, “anyone with basic knowledge of computers can look at the discs and see when they were created and if they were ever modified in any way.

“The book contains about ten percent of what was found in the computer files. There is so much more that hasn’t been revealed. I also have physical and photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book.”

Jon Gosselin has not commented publicly on Hoffman’s book and his allegations.
