Sherri Shepherd is now a mom for the 2nd time -- if she wants to be -- because we've learned her surrogate has given birth.
We're told the baby boy was born Tuesday in Pennsylvania.
We broke the story ... Sherri has disavowed maternity, claiming her estranged husband Lamar Sally defrauded her when she signed the surrogate documents. She believes his intent all along was to divorce her and then go for child support.
We know Lamar intends to raise the child himself but he will still ask a judge to order Sherri to pay support.
We're told Sherri was not present -- Lamar was ... and sources close to him say he is excited to be a new dad and for the future ahead.
Hires Casey Anthony Attorney
My Baby Mama's Vagina is Bleeding in Jail
8/3/2014 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Lohan has hired Casey Anthony's lawyer to stop the bleeding ... the vaginal bleeding of his pregnant baby mama who Michael claims her jailers are grossly mistreating her.
Attorney Jose Baez is now gunning for a court order forcing the jail to properly treat Kate Major's vaginal bleeding. Lohan claims Kate started bleeding this week -- on 2 separate occasions -- but both times she was taken to an infirmary and sent back to her cell.
Michael says there were no specialists to treat Kate and all they did was an ultrasound which showed a heartbeat ... but Michael says, "You know damn well if someone has vaginal bleeding while pregnant that's indicative of a miscarriage."
Michael also claims Kate -- who is behind bars over a DUI -- was forced to carry her property back to her room while she was still bleeding.
Baez will almost certainly attempt to get an order forcing the prison to have Kate examined and treated by a specialist.
We reached out to the jail for comment, so far ... no word back.
Sherri Shepherd's Hubby
She Crapped on My Baby Shower
8/2/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Sally got a slew of baby gifts from just about everyone in his life except one person ... the woman who had signed on to be the mother -- Sherri Shepherd.
The baby was due Thursday. It's being carried by a surrogate and Lamar and Sherri were once looking forward to raising the kid together ... until he filed for separation and she filed for divorce. Now she wants a clean break from Lamar and the kid.
Lamar's friends have given him gift cards, baby clothes and lots of stuff for the nursery. Lamar has dropped $5K on a changing station, crib, baby swing and rocking chair. But Sherri has not so much as given him a diaper on which the kid can crap.
Sherri believes Lamar defrauded her into signing on with the surrogate, claiming he always planned on leaving her and this was just a transparent ploy to get child support.
When the baby is born, Lamar says he'll bestow the name he and Sherri picked -- Lamar Jr.
I Kept My Baby's Birth Details Secret
... Until Now!!
7/29/2014 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Maya Rudolph just filed the birth certificate for her baby -- which is interesting because she gave birth A YEAR AGO.
According to to the document -- obtained by TMZ -- Maya and longtime partner Paul Thomas Anderson gave birth to a baby girl on Aug. 1, 2013 ... naming her Minnie Ida Anderson after Maya's mother, Minnie Riperton.
Everything was pretty much on the down low until the certificate was filed Tuesday in L.A. The reason -- Maya gave birth at home, so there was no hospital to record the birth.
In California ... birth certificates must be filed before the baby turns 1, so Maya and Paul got in just under the wire.
Happy birthday, Minnie!

Two days after giving birth ... Jwoww arrived home from the hospital Tuesday carrying her precious cargo -- but she let her fiance carry the baby.
Jwoww held tight to her breast-feeding pillow ... while fiance Roger Mathews toted their newborn daughter, Meilani, in a baby carrier.

Nice balloons, Snook.

My Baby's Name Is ...
7/13/2014 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jwoww's stubborn baby is now officially here ... one day after inducing labor, she gave birth Sunday to a baby whose name you'd probably hear at the shore ... but not the Jersey Shore.
Jwoww and fiance Roger Mathews named their daughter Meilani Alexandra Mathews ... the guidette weighed 7lbs, 13 ounces.
As we previously reported, some members of the reality star's family and friends flew out to Jersey for the occasion.
No word on whether any of her co-stars were on hand for the birth.
'Jersey Shore' Ronnie
Jwoww's Labor Induced

It's only a matter of time now before Jwoww pushes a miniature guidette out of her lady parts ... at least according to "Jersey Shore" star Ronnie Magro.
Ronnie was leaving Boa with a friend Saturday night when he not only confirmed Jwoww's labor has been induced ... but the reality star also gave us props for being the first to report the news.
Our camera guy tries to come up with a possible name for the new baby ... but things get awkward.
Get This Baby Out of My Belly

Jwoww is tired of waiting for her baby to pop out ... so the reality star made plans to induce labor.
Sources close to Jwoww tell us the 28-year old recently put the word out to her inner circle ... letting them know she'd squeeze her baby girl out this weekend -- artificially stimulated or not.
We're told some of her friends and fam rushed to Jersey to support the mom-to-be and fiance Roger Mathews ... and now everyone is patiently waiting to see what happens.
Our sources say it doesn't look like MTV cameras will film the actual birth.
Eva and Ryan

Either way you cut it ... Eva Mendes will give birth to an objectively beautiful baby ... whether it's a boy or a girl -- so concludes a noted forensic artist.
Joe Mullins -- a forensic artist for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children -- studied photos of Eva and Ryan and used computer technology to predict what the kid's gonna look like. Obviously not a precise science, but still fun to predict.
The sex doesn't matter ... the kid wins the lottery of looks. Period.
I Got Something to Hide
Ryan Gosling's Baby!
7/10/2014 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
So this is ironic ... Eva Mendes -- now the envy of every woman on the planet and a sizable number of men -- is going to gargantuan lengths to hide the fact that she's carrying Ryan Gosling's baby.
Eva was leaving a parking structure Wednesday in L.A. when she ran into a photog ... hours after news broke she's 7 months pregnant -- allegedly 7 months.
She went through contortions to hide the baby bump, using a Birkin bag, scarves and everything else within arms reach to obfuscate the money shot.
Wear it like a badge of honor, Eva.
It's Not My Kid
I'm Not Paying Child Support
7/5/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sherri Shepherd does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby ... because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support ... this according to multiple sources connected with the couple.
TMZ broke the story ... Sherri and her husband Lamar Sally each separately filed legal docs to end their marriage. The big complication -- a baby will be born this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with Sherri and Lamar.
Now our sources say ... the baby was conceived with Lamar's sperm, but NOT Sherri's egg.
Now here's where it gets tricky. We're told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent ... because she doesn't want to get stuck with massive child support payments.
Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities -- which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her -- that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.
Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn't work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process.
Another twist ... Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.
I'm Not Pregnant
Second 'Glee' Star Hacked
7/4/2014 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lea Michele seemingly announced her pregnancy on Twitter this morning -- but moments later her rep debunked the news ... telling us the actress had been hacked.
As we previously reported ... Chris Colfer received similar treatment yesterday when his account tweeted saying he was let go from the show for personal reasons -- but it turned out to be the work of some internet bandit.
Maybe Glee123 isn't the strongest password.
