Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers Welcome a Baby Girl

Tommaso Boddi/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers are closing 2014 on a happy note.

The married couple welcomed their first child, a daughter, a rep for the Lone Ranger star told People.

"Both mom and baby are doing great!" the rep said.

Hammer, 28, and Chambers, 32, were married in 2010. This past June, Hammer's publicist confirmed that the Mine actor and the chief correspondent for the Human Rights Foundation were expecting.

"They will be amazing parents," a friend of the couple told ABC News at the time. "They are such a loving couple that this is the perfect next chapter in their lives."

On November 9, they celebrated their impending parenthood at a baby shower hosted by a friend in L.A. The party featured a buffet dinner of pizza, salads, ravioli and veggies, with sweets from the couple's San Antonio-based bakery, Bird Bakery, for dessert.

"It was a beautiful evening full of love and joy," Chambers told Us Weekly of the party. "It was the perfect shower and way to welcome baby Hammer into the world."

Luke Bryan Cancels CMT Appearance After Death in the Family

Luke Bryan Cancels CMT Appearance After Death in the Family

ABC/Mark Levine(NEW YORK) -- Luke Bryan will remain with family instead of appearing Tuesday night at the CMT Artists of the Year special after the singer's family was dealt yet another tragic blow.

Bryan's brother-in-law Ben Lee Cheshire died Saturday at age 46, and Bryan has decided to stay in Georgia to be with family instead of perform at the show honoring the top country artists of 2014, a rep for Bryan told People magazine.

His publicist confirmed the report to ABC News.

Cheshire was the husband of Bryan's late sister Kelly, who passed in 2007 at the age of 39. Cheshire is survived by his three children, who are now all in their teens. According to Cheshire's obituary in the Albany Herald, his funeral was held Tuesday and Bryan co-officiated.

Bryan has been open about not only losing his sister, but his only brother years earlier due to a car accident.The singer, 38, spoke to ABC News last year, saying about his brother's death, "You never truly...move beyond it.""My only older siblings...gone from the world, in a flash in two, two different, crazy, tragic manners, that...we'll never know, and never understand," he continued about his loss. "You can lean on friends and family through it...and you can get back life."Just this past October, Bryan spoke to Nightline about the importance of family.The beloved country star also spoke to the show about how his story and his music like "Drink a Beer," written and dedicated to his late siblings, has inspired others to move past tragedy."I meet so many people, even this week a young girl said, I don’t even know if she’s old enough to drink, but she gets 'Drink a Beer.' She was like, 'You know the fact that you sing about that with what you’ve been through helped me get over the loss of my brother," he said. "That’s what it’s all about to me...giving people that moment of helping getting through."Bryan has persevered and excelled, especially in 2014, earning the top honor of Entertainer of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards a few weeks back and Top Country Artist at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards.Even though Bryan won't be in attendance for the CMT Artists of the Year, the show will "honor Luke in absentia and will recognize him in only the best way we know how – out of respect for him and his family," a rep for CMT told People.

Longtime Rolling Stones Sax Player Bobby Keys Dead at 70

Longtime Rolling Stones Sax Player Bobby Keys Dead at 70

Taylor Hill/FilmMagic(FRANKLIN, Tenn.) -- Bobby Keys, the veteran saxophonist best known for his contributions to many classic Rolling Stones songs, died Tuesday morning at his home in Franklin, Tennessee. He was 70.Nashville Scene reports that Keys' death was confirmed by Michael Webb, a keyboardist in the saxophonist's group The Suffering Bastards. Webb tells the website that the legendary sax player had been battling cirrhosis of the liver.Keys' association with The Rolling Stones dates back to the group's 1969 album Let It Bleed, and he played on all the band's albums through 1973's Goat's Head Soup, as well as on 1980's Emotional Rescue. Keys also toured with The Stones on and off for the last 45 years, but his health issues forced him to sit out the group's recent Australia and New Zealand trek.

On Tuesday afternoon, a rep for the Stones released a statement that said, "The Rolling Stones are devastated by the loss of their very dear friend and legendary saxophone player, Bobby Keys. Bobby made a unique musical contribution to the band since the 1960's. He will be greatly missed."And Keys' close friend, Stones guitarist Keith Richards, added a personal statement via Twitter, writing, “Bobby, I have lost the largest pal in the world and I can’t express the sense of sadness I feel though Bobby would tell me to cheer up. My condolences to all that knew him and his love of music.”

Born in Texas, Keys' music career began when he was a teenager, during which time he performed with such stars as Bobby Vee and Buddy Holly's backing group The Crickets.

He was an in-demand session player for decades, and is featured on recordings by such famed artists as John Lennon, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Cocker, Barbra Streisand, Carly Simon, Faces and Harry Nilsson, among many others.

Bradley Cooper Reflects on Past Struggles with Addiction, Loss

Bradley Cooper Reflects on Past Struggles with Addiction, Loss

Neil P. Mockford/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Bradley Cooper is at the top of his game, but the actor opened up about a time in his past when things weren't going so well.In the January issue of Vanity Fair, the 39-year-old actor talked about his struggles with addiction, losing his father and his once-stalled career, and how such hardships have helped him prepare for his latest role as Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper."Losing someone close to me. Going through love and loss…knowing what’s important," Cooper said of the struggles that have shaped him. "Realizing that the bottom line is that all I got is me, so it’s about time to stop trying to be something that I think you would want me to be. Or that would give me what I think I need. As you get older, thank God, your body deteriorates, but your soul sort of flourishes."To play sniper Kyle, Cooper also had to transform himself physically. Sober since August 2004, Cooper chose to do it the old-fashioned way, without any stimulants."I did it naturally because I’ve been sober for 10 years and didn’t want to do anything," he told Vanity Fair. "I had a realistic conversation. Can I do this in three months naturally? Can I gain 30 pounds of...muscle? I didn’t know if I would be able to do it or not. Thank God -- luckily -- my...body reacted fast."The two-time Academy Award nominee also discussed the difficulties of trying to make it in Hollywood and how he considered hanging it up in 2006 when he appeared on Broadway in Three Days of Rain, opposite Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd, an experience he called "an amazing opportunity."Cooper recalled thinking then, "If this doesn’t work, then I’m not supposed to do this for a living," he said, and even contemplated going back to school for a Ph.D. in English and teaching literature.It worked, however, and Cooper went on to star in the successful Hangover movies, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. Now, Cooper is eyeing directing next."I always knew I wanted to be in the trenches with a director making the movie," he told the magazine. "I always felt that’s what I’m supposed to be doing. I always knew deep down that if I’m not going to do that then I’m not too long for this business."His American Sniper co-star Sienna Miller told Vanity Fair, "He’d be brilliant, but he’d be a nightmare [as a director]. He won’t let anyone get away with anything."

Chris Rock on Ferguson, Black Progress and Future for His Kids

Chris Rock on Ferguson, Black Progress and Future for His Kids

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Despite recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, Chris Rock remains optimistic about the future, especially for his daughters.“I mean, I almost cry every day. I drop my kids off and watch them in the school with all these mostly white kids, and I got to tell you, I drill them every day: ‘Did anything happen today? Did anybody say anything?’ They look at me like I am crazy,” the father of two told New York magazine.“It’s partly generational, but it’s also my kids grew up not only with a black president but with a black Secretary of State, a black joint chief of staff, a black attorney general. My children are going to be the first black children in the history of America to actually have the benefit of the doubt of just being moral, intelligent people,” Rock said.Rock told interviewer Frank Rich that it’s not black people who have progressed so much as whites.“To say Obama is progress is saying that he’s the first black person that is qualified to be president. That’s not black progress. That’s white progress,” Rock said. “There’s been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years.”He continued, “There have been smart, educated, beautiful, polite black children for hundreds of years. The advantage that my children have is that my children are encountering the nicest white people that America has ever produced. Let’s hope America keeps producing nicer white people.”After a grand jury in Missouri declined to bring charges against police officer Darren Wilson last week for the Aug. 9 shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown, Rock took to Twitter to voice his displeasure of the decision.“A system cannot fail those it was never meant to protect,” he wrote, quoting W.E.B. Du Bois.

Bill Cosby Resigns from Temple University Board of Trustees

Bill Cosby Resigns from Temple University Board of Trustees

Photo by: Nathaniel Chadwick/NBC(PHILADELPHIA) -- Days after resigning as fundraising co-chair at the University of Massachusetts, Bill Cosby has now resigned from the Board of Trustees at Temple University, amid controversy over accusations of sexual assault by the comic, all of which he has denied.Cosby attended Temple from 1961 to 1962, where he was a track and football star."I have always been proud of my association with Temple University. I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees," Cosby said Monday in an official statement.Temple University added, "The Board of Trustees accepts Dr. Cosby's resignation from the board and thanks him for his service to the university.”The 77-year-old comedian had been on the Temple board since 1982.Temple University was actually at the center of the first sexual abuse claim against Cosby in 2004, when university employee Andrea Constand claimed the comedian drugged and assaulted her. In addition to several women coming forward in the last month with their own accusations against Cosby, a former NBC employee, Frank Scotti, told the New York Daily News that he paid off eight women on Cosby's behalf, allegedly sending thousands of dollars in money orders to the women to keep them quiet.With all the media buzz around the comedic legend, he's cancelled a number of stand-up shows and networks like TV Land have pulled reruns of The Cosby Show.Last week, Cosby, who has vehemently denied the allegations all along, finally commented, saying, "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos."

Cosby's lawyer, Martin Singer, also has spoken up for the comedian: "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity."These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years."

Rivers' daughter, Melissa, who also serves as an executive producer on the fashion show, approves of Griffin. "Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble. I’m excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation," she said in a statement.

Reportedly, Griffin beat out Tyra Banks and reality star NeNe Leakes for the gig.

Fashion Police has been on hiatus since the death of Rivers on September 4 at the age of 81. The series will return January 12, 2015 with coverage of the Golden Globe Awards.
