More great news for UFC superstar Henry Cejudo ... not only is he engaged to a Brazilian model -- he's also gonna be a daddy!!!
TMZ Sports has learned ... Triple C and his fiancée, Ana Karolina, are expecting their first child together -- a baby girl due in November.
Of course, Cejudo and Karolina first went public back in November 2020 ... and have been inseparable ever since.
Fun fact -- Cejudo previously said Ana was his crush for 4 YEARS before he finally got a chance to meet her through a mutual friend.
Now, the couple is set to welcome their baby girl in just a few months ... and have already decided on a name -- America.
We're told despite announcing their engagement on Instagram on Tuesday, 34-year-old Cejudo actually bent the knee in front of Ana's family in Sao Paulo back on April 29 ... and of course, she said "yes!"
The couple hosted a gender reveal party to share the big news with all their family and friends ... celebrating with some music and pink decorations.
Cejudo -- barring a UFC comeback (which he's flirted with) -- will have PLENTY of time to help with the baby prep ... he announced his retirement from MMA in May 2020 after beating Dominick Cruz at UFC 249.
Better learn how to change a diaper now, Triple C!!!
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... MGK was driving his motorcycle Tuesday afternoon in Sherman Oaks, CA with Megan on the back seat when an LAPD officer pulled 'em over.
We're told Megan was wearing a helmet -- you can see she still had it on as she sat off to the side during the traffic stop -- but her rock star BF apparently was not, and that's why the cop busted him.
During the stop, our sources say the officer also discovered MGK didn't have the proper endorsement to operate a motorcycle on his driver's license ... so he was cited for that along with no helmet.
Kinda hard to argue against either ticket, and we're told Machine Gun and Megan were both friendly and cooperative with the officer.
As you probably know ... the duo's been pretty inseparable since May 2020, when word first got out they were dating.
We're guessing MGK will just pay the fines. Too bad ... these two making an appearance together would make traffic court way more exciting.
Lance Bass and his husband Michael Turchin are doubling their family fun -- and perhaps their number of sleepless hours -- they're expecting twins this fall, one boy and one girl!!!
The 'NSYNC singer says the twins are due in early November, and things are finally looking up this time after going through 9 different egg donors and tons of hurdles.
Lance and Michael told PEOPLE the stars finally aligned after a different surrogate suffered a miscarriage in March 2020, sending them back to square one.
The couple's crediting their actor friend Taylor Frey with turning them on to their current surrogate and egg donor, and despite the heartbreak from 2020 ... Lance and Michael felt comfortable telling family about the pregnancy after 9 weeks in.
Remember, Lance and Michael were in the super early baby planning stages back in April 2018, telling us how they were going to decide whose sperm to use.
The competition sounds like it ended in a tie ... Lance and Michael say they each fertilized one of the embryos.
Casey Anthony knows a thing or 2 about the law, because she's conversant with the meaning of a police incident report ... something she requested from the 911 operator after a woman allegedly threw a drink on her ... a woman who dated the same man as Anthony.
TMZ has obtained the 911 audio of a call Casey made last week in West Palm Beach, claiming the other woman has been harassing her over an ex they'd both dated. She claimed to have been the recipient of a free drink ... which she says the other lady hurled at her.
Casey is clearly agitated but hellbent on getting the alleged incident documented so she could file for a restraining order. Casey claimed she had been repeatedly harassed by the woman.
Here's what's strange ... as eager as Casey seemed to go down the path of getting a restraining order, when push came to shove she backed off when cops arrived and spoke with her. The other woman had already left the bar.
Casey's PR manager had told us she decided not to press charges or take any legal action against the woman at this time ...
Teresa Giudice tried like hell to shut down wedding talk in front of her BF -- maybe she's superstitious -- but he's not the least bit shy to talk rings!!!
We got the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star and her man, Luis Ruelas, out in Bev Hills where our guy didn't waste any time getting straight to the point -- y'all getting married, or nah? He specifically posed it to Luis.
Check it out ... to our surprise it was Teresa who wanted Luis to keep his trap shut, but dude was more than down to spill the beans about his plans.
Luis said "yes" 3 times when asked about vows being in their future! We also asked if a double-date with Teresa's ex, Joe Giudice, was a real possibility. Pretty surprising answer to that too.
You gotta see the energy they're both giving off here -- Luis seems super down-to-earth, but Teresa seems super nervous. We guess some topics are just taboo for a woman in love. #nojinx
TMZ broke the story ... Teresa and Luis bought a mansion in NJ for $3.35 million. Palatial digs for sure, and a solid place to host a wedding. Just sayin' 🤷🏽♂️
Sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ ... the reason it's taking a while to finalize their divorce is because Jay's seeking 50 percent ownership of Uncommon James, Kristin's chic jewelry and apparel line.
We're told Cutler's insisting he should get a stake in UJ because Kristin launched it while they were married ... and well before he filed for divorce in April, 2020.
Our sources say Kristin doesn't feel she owes him anything from Uncommon James, however, because she says Jay didn't put any of his own money into the company. She claims she funded it ... and is pushing back hard.
Whether or not that's true, we do know Cutler was at the opening of Cavallari's Chicago location for support ... because it was featured on her reality show.
As we've reported ... after the divorce filing last year, things got contentious between Kristin and Jay for a while, but they seemingly worked it all out, agreeing to 50/50 custody of their 3 kids. They even hinted they were getting close again in January.
Sure seems like some of that contentiousness is back on. We reached out to Kristin and Jay's reps for comment ... so far, no word back.
Bryan Callen's officially divorced and while he's paying a nice chunk o' change in support, their assets are split pretty evenly ... right down to their 2 pups.
The actor and comedian best known for "The Hangover" and the ABC sitcom "The Goldbergs," finalized his divorce with Amanda Humphrey earlier this month, and according to the docs, Amanda gets their Santa Monica crib worth around $3.4 million. She'll also keep a leased 2019 Lexus GX 460 Sport Wagon and several bank accounts.
Bryan will pay Amanda $11,496 every month in spousal support, and $8,504/mo. in child support for their 2 kids ... 13-year-old Stella Quinn and 9-year-old Finn Cook.
Speaking of the kids, Bryan and Amanda will share joint legal custody, and have already hammered out a visitation schedule. Their 2 dogs are kind of a package deal with Stella and Finn -- the pets will be with Amanda, but when the kids are with Bryan he'll get the dogs too.
However, Amanda keeps their horse. Of course.
Now, Bryan's walking away with a Venice home worth nearly $2 million, his 2014 Toyota Prius and his leased 2019 Tesla Model S. He'll also keep the rights to his podcast "The Fighter and the Kid" and some of his bank accounts.
As we reported ... Amanda filed for divorce back in February 2020 after 12 years of marriage.
J Lo and her ex-husband were spotted out at lunch Thursday in Miami, sharing a table outside and talking over a bottle of water. The two have children together and have always maintained a strong friendship, but after her recent reunion with Ben Affleck, A-Rod is the obvious man out.
When Alex and J Lo called off their engagement, the two announced they'd continue to have a working business relationship, and Jennifer seemingly can make things with exes work ... so only time will tell where things go.
As for his part, Alex hasn't said much publicly about Jennifer since the split, but hasn't been so subtle in social media posts, showing empty spots at his dinner table where presumably Jennifer and her kids would sit.
Matt James posted the first pic of him with Rachael Kirkconnell, and imagery is everything.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
As you can see, a black child is hugging Rachael ... and it's pretty much undeniable the photo choice was intentional. As you know, Rachael's romance with Matt collapsed after a photo surfaced of Kirkconnell in her college days at a plantation-themed party. Matt said he couldn't be with her, but clearly had a change of heart.
Matt posted the pic with the caption, "The gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others 🙏🏾"
He goes on ... "Today we began a series focused on financial literacy (savings accounts, what is crypto currency, budgeting, etc.) 🐷💰. Our goal is (and always has been) to provide access to resources, individuals, & opportunities so that our students can make informed decisions for themselves and their families 🙌🏾.."
Seems like a great cause, so good for them.
The hip-hop mogul just posted a #tbt of him holding hands with J Lo back when they were dating. We don't know the exact date, but they dated from 1999-2001.
Hard to argue this is just an innocuous throwback from Diddy, considering it comes at the same time she's making huge headlines for rekindling the romance with one of her other very famous exes, Ben Affleck. BTW, Ben started dating Jen about a year and a half after she split with Puff Daddy ... as he was known back then.
Whatever Diddy's motive may be, it's not the first time he's posted something provocative about Lopez while she's in a relationship with someone else.
You may recall ... back in early 2019 he slid into her comments section to reply "OMG" with a heart-eyes emoji to one of her sexy photos while she was dating Alex Rodriguez.
Fans accused him of being thirsty, and A-Rod even responded to Diddy's comment with, "Lucky me." J Lo later revealed that Diddy apologized to A-Rod for the comment.
Too soon to tell what the reaction will be to Diddy's latest social media maneuver ... or if he'll eventually say sorry to Affleck as well.
Jen and David reveal -- during the "Friends: The Reunion" special -- they had mad crushes on each other! David, in particular, said he had a major crush on Jen during the first season.
He said, "At some point, we were both crushing hard on each other -- but it was like a two ships passing [in the night] because one of us was always in a relationship."
David added they never crossed the line because they respected that. Jennifer says she remembers telling David, "'It's going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I actually kiss is ... on national television!' Sure enough, the first time we kissed was in that coffee shop."
No word if Ross revealed his crush with an 18-page letter ... FRONT AND BACK!!!
Matt LeBlanc had a little fun with that real-life storyline ... coughing and blurting "Bulls***" when David suggested he and Jen kept things platonic. But, Matt later laughed and said, "I'm kidding!" Or was he? The world may never know.
David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Elliott Gould, Maggie Wheeler, Tom Selleck and Reese Witherspoon also make guest appearances.
We tracked down the waterfront property that J Lo's hunkered down in this week -- and let's just say there's A LOT of space.
The place is a 2-story fortress ... laid out over 10,000 square feet ... with 11 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, 3 garages, a private gym, pool, jacuzzi and spa.
Oh, it's also got its own docking area. Also of note -- there's a guest house on the grounds -- so if JL gets sick of BA's cig sessions, there's always option B when it comes to bedtime. We doubt that's gonna be an issue.
No word on how much J Lo's paying for this or how long she plans to stick around -- but it was sold for a fortune last month to jewelry designer Paul Morelli, who snagged it for around $18 mil. Realtor Julian Johnston had the listing.
Anyway, it's pretty obvious this place is well equipped for more than just a party of two -- but for now, that'll do for Ben and Jen. Don't make too much of a mess in there!!!
Jennifer Lopez is ol' faithful when it comes to working out ... because it's clear it's something she does with her romantic partners.
J Lo and renewed flame Ben Affleck hit the gym together in Miami ... and we've seen this drill before.
Jennifer and A-Rod made it their routine to push weights together during their 4-year relationship. What's interesting ... she's now working up a sweat with Ben in A-Rod's hometown.
As you know by now ... Ben and Jen have rekindled their romance in a big way. He flew down to Miami over the weekend to be with her, and they have pretty much gone public with their relationship. She seemed more equipped for the whole exercise thing than Ben.
As for Bennifer 2.0 ... check this out. Self-help guru Jay Shetty posted this -- "Nothing is as beautiful as seeing someone who has been unlucky in relationships finally being loved effortlessly by the right person." J Lo liked the post, which speaks volumes about her relationship with Ben.
It seems Jen and Ben have started anew with the same intensity as when they were together pre-"Gigli."
12:11 PM PT -- Montana Yao has responded to Malik Beasley ... saying she appreciates the apology and considers it a step forward in their healing.
"Makai and I do appreciate Malik's apology," Yao said on Instagram on Monday. "It's hard to own up to bad decisions and apologize especially publicly so it is really appreciated."
She added ... "My main priority has been and will forever be my son so I'm glad if/when he looks back on all of this one day he can see his dad publicly apologized to us for publicly hurting us."
"This is a step forward in healing for me and also having Malik be a part of Makai's life because he does deserve to have a father in his life and one who loves him."
"At the end of the day, we are both Makai's parents so I am praying for his sake we can all move forward away from the anger and hurt to be able to raise him with love, respect, and happiness on both sides."
Regrets, he's had a few ...
Malik Beasley has issued a public apology to his wife and son -- after he ditched the family for a fling with Larsa Pippen in late 2020.
"I wana say sorry for putting you in the situation you were put in the last few months," the 24-year-old NBA player wrote to Montana Yao on Instagram ... "my head wasn’t were it was supposed to be."
As we previously reported, Yao felt "blindsided" by photos of her husband holding hands with 46-year-old Larsa Pippen during a Nov. 23 outing in Miami.
Yao -- who married Beasley in March 2020 -- filed for divorce in December. They have a 2-year-old son, Makai, together.
Around the time she filed for divorce, Montana ripped Malik on social media ... saying she and her son were "told to leave our family home 10 days ago and just like you all I'm pretty confused."
She continued, "There have been no public or private addressing of the situation nor any type of apology."
Now, seems Beasley is finally ready to reconcile ... and though he never mentions Larsa by name in his IG post, it's obvious he's referring to her.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
"I was looking for more when it was right here that whole time," Beasley said ... "I’m telling the world and you that there’s no body like you for me."
Beasley also claims he was the one who broke things off with Larsa -- saying, "For the record I was the one who ended my last relationship off the fact that there is no one like you."
He added, "Also for the record i wanted to do my own ish cuz I just left u guys and I def ain’t the type to set up pictures at the mall n ish .. as that’s some childish ish and I’m trying to grow individually and grow a family .. a real family."
Beasley says he's not "looking to be judged I’m looking for forgiveness."
"To forgive me for hurting my family the way I did. At the end of the day I’m a lover boy and I miss holding y’all and loving y’all.. I love you mu shi .. I love you kai Kai. My family over thing."
Question now ... is the apology coming too little, too late? Or will Montana take him back?

Bryshere Gray -- known for his role as Hakeem Lyon on "Empire" -- has entered a guilty plea in his domestic violence case ... and he'll have to spend some time behind bars.
According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Gray pled guilty to felony aggravated assault and, as part of his plea agreement, he's been sentenced to 10 days in county jail and 3 years probation.
As part of the deal ... Gray has also been ordered to pay restitution. He must also enroll in a domestic violence offender treatment program.
During his probation, Gray won't be allowed to consume any illegal drugs and he'll also have to submit to drug and alcohol testing. He's gotta stay out of trouble ... and he can't possess any stun guns, Tasers or any other kind of firearm.
He also must check in with his probation officer within 72 hours of being contacted by law enforcement and he needs written approval from police before associating with anyone who has a criminal record.
As we reported ... Gray was busted back in July following a standoff with SWAT at his home just outside of Phoenix. His wife flagged down a Good Samaritan and alleged Gray assaulted for several hours at their home.
BA flew into Miami Sunday to meet up with his old flame, trying to look incognito in a helluva getup. Dude was rocking sunglasses, a dad hat pulled down low and a face mask for good measure. Yet, even with all that, he kinda stuck out like a sore thumb ... and paps picked up on the scent. Good effort, though, Ben!
It became clear he was in town when he later surfaced at a waterfront mansion J Lo was at -- where Ben came out onto the balcony for a smoke at one point ... facing out towards the cameras, without trying to mask anything. There's no question, that's Ben Freakin' Affleck.
Jen popped in and out herself, but you could only make out her back, as she seemed to be trying to lay a little more low than her boo was. They never came out onto the balcony together -- but it's obvious ... they were sharing the same space, if only temporarily.
Eventually, they gave up the elusive act altogether and walked down a flight of stairs -- with Ben trailing Jennifer, who flashed a big smile ... and couldn't have looked happier. We'd like to say the same for Ben -- but he looked as aloof/pensive as he ever has (in memes and elsewhere).
In any case, it would appear the cat's outta the bag -- and something tells us we might just see more of their public outings going forward. Flashback to the early 2000s, here we go!
