-Congrats to John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. The Office actor shared the news on Twitter Saturday morning: “Wanted to let the news out directly.  Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today!” (I love the name.)

-In other baby news, Canadian singer Lights also had a baby girl on Saturday and named her, um, Rocket Wild.

Simon Cowell also has a new baby.

Cate Blanchett won a BAFTA this weekend and gave a lovely shout-out to Philip Seymour Hoffman in her acceptance speech.

-Speaking of the BAFTAs, I love and adore the tux Angelina Jolie wore. (I also love that Brangelina are stepping up their award show appearances, which bodes well for the Oscars.) I also liked Ruth Wilson’s outfit, I liked the idea of Gillian Anderson’s but hated the execution, and feel bad for Maggie Gyllenhaal, who got out-played by Helen Mirren.

Tom Hardy took someone who isn’t his fiancee to the BAFTAs.

Christina Aguilera got engaged on Valentine’s Day.

-Meanwhile, despite rumours John Mayer did not pop the question on V-Day.

-Ooh boy. Charlie Sheen is engaged to a porn star.

Ellen Page came out on Friday in a very brave and emotional speech, and E!Online quickly pulled the article about her that she referenced, in which they said she “insisted on dressing like a massive man.” Page has since returned to the set of X-Men in Montreal.

-I’m not going to lie: it’s a holiday here and I’ve already checked by mailbox twice to see if my Veronica Mars issue of EW has arrived yet. Does Canada Post deliver on stats or am I going to have to run to the newsstand and buy it? Because between the movie tickets already going on sale, and the building buzz, I don’t think I can wait.

-Orange is the New Black’s second season will begin June 6. Here’s a very short teaser.

-A preview of Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken premiered during NBC’s Olympics coverage.

Kanye West interrupted his concert to rant about the tabloids’ fear of his interracial relationship.

-Meanwhile, it looks like Kim Kardashian‘s little sister is getting more love from Vogue’s Anna Wintour than she’ll ever hope to receive.

Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel have been heckling Matt Damon on Twitter.

-Everyone swears vengeance on everyone in the new Game of Thrones trailer.
