Kate Winslet, 38, received an early Christmas present — a baby boy — on Saturday.
"This confirms that Kate had 'baby boy Winslet' on Saturday, December 7 at an NHS Hospital in Sussex County, UK," the actress's rep told omg! in a statement. "Mother and Baby are doing great."
Winslet's rep confirmed in early June that the actress was pregnant.
This is Kate's third child, but first with husband Ned Rocknroll. She has a 13-year-old daughter, Mia, from her first marriage to British film director Jim Threapleton (1998-2001) and a 9-year-old son, Joe, from her second marriage to "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes (2003-2010).

Kim Kardashian is firing back at critics — this time, in relation to her charity choices. Last month, the reality star caused a stir when she launched an eBay sale of some of her clothes and accessories to raise funds for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines. Kardashian, 33, gave 10% of the proceeds to charity, a number many felt was too low. (In comparison, the Beckham's emptied their closets for no profit.) "I feel compelled to speak about something that is in my head and my heart," Kim posted on her blog on Tuesday. "Over the years, I’ve had to grow a thick skin. Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticized for any and everything I do. I’m used to it now. I just choose not to feed into negativity or become consumed by it. "The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people," Kanye West's fiancée wrote. "My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to. I do it because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do. So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts." This isn't the first time Kim has found herself in a precarious situation when giving back. After her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries, Kardashian sent out cards announcing she would be donating their wedding gifts to charity. Although that didn't happen, Kim did donate a large sum of money to the Dream Foundation, supposedly valued at twice the amount of gifts received. Still, her critics claimed that wasn't enough. "I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time," Kim continued. "I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions. This month it’s for the people of the Philippines, last month was Life Change Community Church."

Paul Walker will soon be laid to rest. The actor's remains have been released to Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, omg! can confirm, at the request of his family. Private funeral services for the actor and Roger Rodas — whose remains were released to Forest Lawn Glendale — have yet to be announced. However, E! News is reporting that Tyrese Gibson has been helping the Walker family make arrangements. It's likely Vin Diesel is offering a helping hand as well. Paul's co-star and "other half" headed straight to Walker's mother's house upon hearing the news of Paul's death. On Sunday, thousands of fans flocked to a car rally and public memorial service in Valencia, California, to honor the fallen "Fast & Furious" star. Hundreds of flowers, candles, and posters have been laid nearby the crash site where Walker — who passed away at age 40 — and his longtime friend and business partner, Rodas, died in a fiery accident on Nov. 30. Last week, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Department ruled both deaths accidental. According to the report, Rodas succumbed to "multiple traumatic injuries" while Walker died of "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." Both men died "within seconds" of the incident, described as "auto versus fixed object." In lieu of flowers or gifts, Paul Walker's family has encouraged fans to donate to his charity, Reach Out Worldwide. Click here to learn more.

On Sunday, celebrities united for TrevorLIVE, which took place at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
Kathy Griffin hosted the star-studded event benefiting The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning young people under 24.
Paula Abdul, Adam Lambert, Mandy Moore, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Fergie, and Josh Duhamel, and the casts of "Glee" and "The Vampire Diaries" all came out to support the cause.
Before festivities began, Griffin huddled outside with Adam Shankman, who served as executive producer and director of TrevorLIVE, where they were greeted by guests, Fergie, and Josh.
"Seriously, you look hot!" Josh told Kathy. Meanwhile, Shankman made sure to ask the "Fergalicious" singer and her hubby to see the latest photo of their 3-month-old son, Axl.
The good vibes continued inside where everyone sat for dinner.

Jennifer Lopez does it all.
However, on Friday, the actress/singer/TV judge/humanitarian was honored for being a mother with the Grace Kelly Award at the 8th March of Dimes Celebration of Babies luncheon in Beverly Hills. (The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health.)
"It's really humbling, you know?" Lopez, 44, told omg!. "Every mom knows [the challenge of] juggling work and being a mom. What's great about it is that the priority is really set. They come first and you come second and everything else has to kind of fall in line, which makes it crazy!"
J.Lo is the mother of 5-year-old twins, Max and Emme, whom she had with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
"They are so the focus all the time," she continued. "Just to be honored for being able to juggle that in a way gracefully is kind of the goal. I'm really proud to be here today."

No awkward blood here!
Just four days after Joe Jonas's interview with Vulture (in which he shared some candid revelations about Demi Lovato), the 24-year-old attended a party in celebration of his ex-girlfriend. Nylon magazine threw a bash in West Hollywood for Lovato, their December cover girl, and Demi talked to omg! about her initial response to Joe's article, which went into detail about their relationship as she struggled with drug abuse.
"My first reaction was, 'Well that was stupid,'" the 21-year-old said with a laugh and continued by reiterating some of what she said in her tweet about the interview. "But we are always going to be in each other's lives. I was with Nick [Jonas] today and they are family. I've known them since I was 14, 15 and I have a lot of love for them."

As the Walker family grieves, they hold on to very recent, fond memories of their time spent with Paul.
Six weeks before the "Fast & Furious" actor's tragic death, Paul served as best man in his brother Caleb's wedding. The entire Walker family gathered on Oct. 19 at Dove Canyon Country Club in Orange County, California, where Caleb wed his longtime girlfriend, Stephanie.
In one touching photo, Paul, 40, appears happier than ever standing beside Caleb, 36. The siblings both wore three-piece gray suits and looked incredibly handsome for the special occasion. Also part of the 14-person wedding party was Paul's youngest brother, Cody, 25.

New details are emerging about the tragic and sudden death of Paul Walker and his longtime friend and business partner Roger Rodas.
While investigators are trying to determine the circumstances surrounding Saturday's fatal single-car crash in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita, there are a few theories trickling out as to what could have been the cause. Did the Porsche Carrera GT malfunction? Was there another vehicle involved? Or did the driver simply lose control?
1. Speed Was a Factor
This much is clear: "speed was a factor" in the accident. That came straight from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in a statement. According to authorities, the driver appeared to lose control of the Porsche and slammed into a tree and light standard. The posted speed limit is 45 mph; however, the street is notorious for speed freaks, prompting the sheriff's department to crack down on violators in recent years.
2. Were Paul and Roger Street Racing?

Maria Bello has come out as "whatever."
In a New York Times article titled, "Coming Out as a Modern Family," the "Prisoners" actress details how she told her 12-year-old son, Jackson, that she was in a relationship with a woman.
"I was with someone romantically and I hadn’t told [Jack]," Bello writes. "I had become involved with a woman who was my best friend, and, as it happens, a person who is like a godmother to my son."
Maria, 46, explains the process she went through to acknowledge this woman, Clare, was more than just a friend.
"My feelings about attachment and partnership have always been that they are fluid and evolving. Jack’s father, Dan, will always be my partner because we share Jack," pens Bello. "Just because our relationship is nonsexual doesn’t make him any less of a partner … My more recent ex, Bryn, remains my partner because we share our activism. And Clare will always be my partner because she is also my best friend."
