    Lucy Liu proudly showed off her new baby boy Thursday onInstagram. 

    "Introducing the new little man in my life, my son Rockwell Lloyd Liu. In [love]," she captioned a photo of her cradling the newborn.

    In case you didn't know the Elementary star was expecting, it's because the announcement was a surprise.

    "I can confirm that Lucy Liu is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier," her rep told The Insider With Yahoo . "Mom and baby are healthy and happy."

    Liu, 46, has said very little about her personal life in the past. However, she did talk about children in an interview with the U.K.'s Daily Mail in 2013. The newspaper noted that in the past she'd said she wanted children. "It just hasn't happened yet," she said when asked about motherhood at the time.  

    While Liu hasn't said much else on the subject, she's known for her work helping children as an ambassador of UNICEF.

    Julianne Hough's engagement news last week came with the promise she'd be taking "a slight social media time out" to revel in her happy moment. Thankfully, that's over now! On Tuesday, Hough offered the best glimpse yet of her custom, 5-carat Lorraine Schwartz sparklerin a blog post detailing the engagement night.

    Hough refers to the event with pro hockey Brooks Laich — her plus-one since late 2013 — as "magical and sweet." The two were visiting her grandparents in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, at the time.

    Still, Hough reflected that she didn't fully comprehend what had happened until she began referring to Laich as her fiancé. "I have to say, being engaged actually does feel different," she gushed. "There is a sense of strength in us, a feeling of being further grounded but most of all, it just makes me really giddy!"

  • Chris Brown Owns How Many Burger Kings? And Other Surprising Celebrity-Owned Franchise Revelations

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 16 hrs ago

    In a new installment of Us Weekly 's regular "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" segment, Chris Brown reveals that he owns 14 Burger King franchises. But owning franchises of chain restaurants is nothing new for celebrities.

    Here are some other stars who are making cash on the side from all the Whoppers you've been ordering.

    Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaq has a fairly hefty holding of restaurants across the country, actually. He reportedly partially owns 155 Five Guys Burgers and Fries stores (of the more than 1,000 locations), and he's something of a pretzel king, owning 17 Auntie Anne's shops.

    Peyton Manning

    Peyton Manning just may be the smartest of them all. Just two weeks before voters in Colorado approved an amendment making recreational marijuana legal in the state, the Denver Broncos quarterback bought 21 Papa John's franchises across the state. Now that's just good business.

  • Caitlyn Jenner Discusses What She's Looking for in a Relationship in New 'I Am Cait' Promo

    Yahoo Celebrity 18 hrs ago

     

    Since Caitlyn Jenner came out as transgender, much speculation has revolved around her sexuality. Caitlyn herself has not said much definitively on the matter, as she herself is still figuring it out. But in a promo for ther next episode of I Am Cait , she discusses desiring a potential relationship with a man, and what she might want out of it.

    "It would be very attractive to me to have a guy treat me like a woman," Jenner, 65, says to her close friend Jennifer Finney Boylan, who reacts to the statement with a look of consternation. "That you would be treated like a normal woman... Like any other woman on the street and not make it this big trans thing or this or that. Just a normal relationship."

    But, as Boylan reminds Jenner, she is a normal woman and she should never let a man dictate her self-worth.

    "It's a thing that women do. We look to men to give us self-worth," Boylan says. "I think now that you're in the sisterhood, you have gone through such trouble to become a woman. Don't be a stupid one. Be a smart one."

     

  • Desperately Seeking Kelly Osbourne

    Carly Milne at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    With few exceptions, celebrity interviews are a delicate balancing act on a multitude of levels.

    If there's an event or brand involved, there's the trade-off of plugging the show or the product or the whatever in exchange for 15 minutes with said star, which almost always gets cut down — 10 minutes if you're lucky, five if you're not. There's negotiating with publicists and vetting of questions. There's the drive to honor your editor and publication's desire for news while not pissing off the people who gave you access to a celebrity in the first place. But when all the stars align — both literally and figuratively — sometimes magic can happen.

    But before we can get to the awards show, there's the pre-show VIP reception — a cocktail extravaganza filled with fashionable folk that clearly excel at being fabulous. I wouldn't say I feel out of place — I have my notable style moments, just like any other girl. But as someone who makes an effort yet frequently finds her eye makeup sliding down her face despite what's touted as the industry's best finishing spray, yeah. You could say I feel a little bit intimidated.

    Then it's my turn.

  • Cindy Crawford Stars in a '90s Supermodel Reunion

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 23 hrs ago

    Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold, they say. And it just may be true. A bunch of golden girls gathered together for a reunion of sorts, to reminisce about a time when supermodels ruled the world: it was the 1990s.

    For his latest project, called "The Reunion," famed photographer Peter Lindbergh gathered Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Karen Alexander, Nadja Auermann, and Tatjana Patitz for a photoshoot, decades after Lindbergh helped to launch each of their careers.

    In fact, it was the Lindbergh-shot January 1990 cover of that led George Michael to cast Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Patitz in his music video for "Freedom" which marked the start of the reign of supermodels.

    In her post on Instagram, Crawford wrote, "The reunion! #BTS with @therealpeterlindbergh. Director's cut video up on @nowness today...More to come." While the photos haven't been published anywhere yet, the behind the scenes video is, in fact, live.

  • #TBT: Aaron Paul's Hella Goofy Movie Premiere Look From 2002

    Then: Newbie actor Aaron Paul was just 22 and quite fashionably confused when he walked the red carpet at the premiere of Orange County in January 2002. Up to that point, his roles included "Frat Boy #2" on Melrose Place and two episodes of Judging Amy.  Hey, you've gotta start somewhere! The future star of Breaking Bad sported a puffer vest (didn't everyone?!), camouflage pants, a long scarf, checkered sneakers, and... even more. The colorful outfit had to have inspired some of Justin Bieber's most ridiculous ensemblesa decade later.

    Now: A three-time Emmy winner for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman, Paul seems to have figured out his red carpet style. As he turns 36 on Aug. 27, the actor regularly appears on lists of best dressed men. He's one dapper b--ch!

     

     

  • Growing Up Grammer: Actress Greer Grammer Opens Up About Her 'Awkward' Years

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Being the daughter of a TV star didn't make adolescence any easier for Awkward's Greer Grammer. Like many teens, the offspring of  Frasier 's Kelsey Grammer said she felt that she never quite fit in.

    Grammer, who grew up in affluent Malibu, California, living with her makeup artist mom Barrie Buckner, remembers that, at 12 years old, a girl in her dance class asked how many Louis Vuitton bags she owned. Although Grammer had none, she lied and said one. The girl made fun of her anyway.

    "I had chores and I worked, and I didn't have a lot of money," Grammer tells Yahoo. "My parents didn't buy me things just to buy me things. They bought me things if I got good grades or if I got a lead role in a musical or something, but I wasn't just a spoiled kid."

    The now 23-year-old actress wasn't hurting for anything, though. Just as vividly, she remembers a trip to the movies when she was 7 or 8 with her mom, when they ran into Greer's friend Josephine and Josephine's dad, who happens to be director James Cameron.

  • Josh Duggar Checks Into Long-Term Treatment

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Wednesday morning, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar announced that their embattled son, Josh Duggar, had checked into long-term treatment.

    In a short statement, the Duggars disclosed that their eldest child is on "a long journey toward wholeness and recovery." The statement does not specify what, specifically, the 27-year-old is seeking treatment for, but in his initial statement after it was revealed that he'd maintained an account on the website Ashley Madison, Duggar admitted to an addiction to pornography, an admission he later retracted.

    Here is the Duggars' new statement in full:

    The statement does not specify where Josh is getting treatment, and this is probably for a reason.

    In short: no credentials necessary. The IBLP anticipates these pesky critiques:

  • Daniel Craig Has a Lot to Say About Booze

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Daniel Craig likes his martinis. Well, actually, it's unclear how he likes his martinis, but he definitely likes his booze. The James Bond vet recently opened up about his drinking preferences, preferred recovery method, and why he's over the bar scene. (Hint: It's not really by choice.)

    Craig came to the subject in a rather roundabout way, when director Martin McDonagh was conducting an interview for DuJour magazine and asked him about whether he knows before the cameras start rolling where he'll be filming when he plays 007. It turns out he doesn't, but he did mention that the last Bond flick was shot in Mexico City.

    "It ended up being one of my favorite cities I've ever been to," he said. "But you can get into an awful lot of trouble there." When the In Bruges helmer asked Craig if he was referencing the abundance of tequila, the 47-year-old star replied, "Anything you f---ing want!"
