Serena Williams welcomed her first child
The last tennis tournament Serena Williams played in was the Australian Open in January — which she won, btw. She was in the early stages of her pregnancy, which sent fans in a tizzy, proving that whomever you think the greatest athlete of all time is, a woman who wins major titles–while carrying a baby inside her–deserves all the standing ovations. And, because Serena has impeccable timing, it only made sense that her and fiancé Alexis Ohanian‘s daughter would too, as she made her arrival during the final grand slam of the season, the U.S. Open.
Serena and Alexis welcomed their first child on Sept. 1 at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. According to tweets from media, the baby girl weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz. No names have been revealed just yet.
Hmm, did Serena’s cheering section just gain one more very important person, or did the future of women’s tennis just get a whole lot brighter? We’ll have to see. Congrats to Serena and Alexis!

Oooh, Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are engaged
These two keep their relationship pretty tight, and not much is known about the couple of three years. They met and fell for one another on the set of The Light Between Oceans in 2014, and have been going steady all this time. So it shouldn’t be that surprising that Alicia and Michael are preparing for a wedding. That’s right, for all you hoping for a chance at Fassy, The Sun reports the couple are planning to have a (not-so-)secret ceremony in Ibiza next month.
“The details of the party are being kept under lock and key,” claims a source close to Fassbender. “Guests have been told to arrive in Ibiza on a certain date and they will then be collected and taken to the hotel. He’s splashing out big time and it’s going to be the party of the year.”
A beach wedding in a place they love sounds idyllic. Good for them!
Taylor Swift released her second single and it’s an improvement
Whether you liked or loathed Taylor Swift‘s first single in years, “Look What You Made Me Do,” you’re probably going to love her next soon-to-be-chart-topper.
Like the first song off her upcoming Reputation, “Ready For It?” was played in a teaser during a college football game on ESPN on Saturday, and it sounds like typical Tay. (That’s a good thing.)
Are you #readyforit?

Ahh, now this is more like it.
Angelina is like everyone else, doesn’t enjoy being single
It’s been a year since Angelina Jolie split from Brad Pitt, and Jolie recently spoke about what that time’s been like — TBH, she isn’t loving it.
“It’s been difficult. I don’t enjoy being single,” Jolie told the U.K.’s Sunday Telegraph. “There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”
She and Brad were together for 12 years, married for two, and are the parents of six kids, so it has to suck.
“Sometimes maybe it appears I’m pulling it all together,” Angelina continued. “But really I am just trying to get through my days.”
But it’s the couple’s kids who have been amazing over the past year. “It’s been so moving to see how much they have helped each other and how much they have helped me,” she said, before acknowledging that maybe she needs to be a little selfish for once, something all mothers feel guilty about.
“I think now I need to rediscover a little bit of the old me,” said Jolie. “I think we lose our way a bit. I have had a lot happen in my life, from certain people passing to health issues to raising the children. And it’s been a very good time to absorb and develop and grow.” If anyone needs some me-time, it’s Angie.
Sharon Osbourne reveals Ozzy cheated with women all around the world
Sharon Osbourne has been open about her cheating husband, Ozzy Osbourne, and in an interview with The Telegraph on Saturday, she let it all fly. Because Ozzy didn’t just have one mistress; “there were six of them.” Yeesh.
Sharon detailed: “Some Russian teenager, then a masseuse in England, our masseuse [in the U.S.], and then our cook. He had women in different countries. Basically, if you’re a women giving Ozzy either a back rub or a trolley of food, God help you.”
Then there was his four-year affair with hairstylist Michelle Pugh, the details of which came out earlier this year.
“We were sitting on the couch watching the telly,” she recalled. “Ozzy on one couch and me on the other, and suddenly, he sends me this email. ‘Why did you send me this stupid email?’ I asked, and when Ozzy told me that he hadn’t sent me anything, I grabbed his phone and said, ‘Look!’ And of course it was a message meant for one of his bloody women.”
Osbourne continued: “When I found out about the hairdresser, I couldn’t believe it. Because none of these women were show ponies; he was doing it to fill the void in some way.”
But Sharon and Ozzy defied the odds once more, and are still together. Ozzy entered rehab for sex addiction a year ago, they reconciled a month later and even renewed their vows this past May. Um, congrats?
