People Magazine says Justin and Haley Bieber have chosen a name for their baby and are excited to decorate their nursery. A source close to the couple says, "Everyone is excited for them. They will be great parents, and Justin will be super involved. This will be the next important project for him. He’s so excited to raise his baby. They have a name that they think is perfect. They’re also starting to decorate a nursery. They can’t wait to meet the baby. They have both been very emotional about it. They feel so blessed. They’ve also felt very protective of the baby from the moment they found out. They shared with family and close friends early on. It was very important for them to keep it quiet and just enjoy [it] for as long as possible before they publicly confirmed."


Page Six says Justin and Hailey Bieber renewed their wedding vows in Hawaii before announcing her pregnancy. The couple read letters to each other and cradled Hailey's baby bump. Hailey is reportedly in her third trimester. The child is due by late Summer.

Ariana Grande tells Allure magazine that music and makeup both hold special places in her heart. “I think that I wear my peers’ makeup as well, just like I listen to their music. I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, there’s too many female artists.’ I love and I’m a huge fan of my peers that do both, and I think that it’s just another way to tell stories. Because you can never have enough makeup, just like you can never have enough music."


Sabrina Carpenter tells Interview magazine that there's nothing wrong with being quirky or different. "People think being called quirky or different is an insult. I think being quirky is a compliment. Same with being different. The world would be so boring if we were all acted the same don't you think?"


Mother's Day Music News

Taylor Swift tells NME magazine that her mother keeps her grounded. “I’m in the news every single day for multiple different reasons, and it can feel, at times, if you let your anxiety get the better of you, like everybody’s waiting for you to really mess up – and then you’ll be done. A lot of the time I need to call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and all the things that matter. If you do something that defines your character to be not what the public thought you were, that’s the biggest risk.”



Kelly Clarkson tells People that motherhood has changed her. “My whole life took a big 180. I never thought I was going to be a mom, so it’s very much changed my world in the most awesome way. I love what I do, but I feel like I relied on my career a lot for my self-worth. And now I’m more than that. I have a certain level of peace I didn’t know was going to come with it. My best friend always says, ‘You just want to create the family you never had.’ I might be doing that. In defense of my family, it happens. People fall out of love, and people go separate ways. People are human. I’ve accomplished a lot, but I guess the biggest success I want is that whenever I die people will say, ‘She was so successful as a mother, and as a wife.’ That’s kind of my big goal.”


Andy Grammer tells ABC that he did ''Dancing with the Stars'' for his late mother."I came on this show because she (his mum) loved Dancing With the Stars and dance in general, so it's kind of full circle to have me leave on the night where I got to do a dance for her... It was a really emotional week. Grieving is such an interesting thing, and so I found that through dancing on this show, I was able to grieve for her, which sounds crazy, but that's real."



Kate Hudson had encounters with the supernatural when she was younger. She tells AOL;  "When I was a little girl, it was actually quite wild because I would see ghosts all the time. The afterlife is more scientific than we even know. It is very multidimensional.”


StyleCaster says Tom Brady is concerned about his relationship with Gisele Bundchen after she felt 'disrespected' by the jokes made at their expense during his roast. A source says, “Tom wants to have a good relationship with Gisele, He doesn’t want things to be “awkward” between them. He wants them to have closure and be in a good place.”

Another source says  "Everything was all in good fun. Gisele needs to get a sense of humor. Just like with any roast neither Tom, nor any of the participants knew what was going to be said about them. But as with any roast they target public parts of your life. If Gisele wanted to keep her relationship private, she shouldn't have been making out with her jiu-jiu instructor in the middle of the street. She showed more than just her cards that Valentine's day. It's fair game." 


BroBible says Jennifer Lopez is under fire for her behavior towards photographers at the Met Gala in New York City. Fans are criticizing her for being rude and dismissive. The website quotes one media member as saying, “This is super embarrassing. I asked a big music industry person, like, ‘What is going on with J-Lo?’ The response was she way overshot… She was never as big as she was in her own mind. This is a sad situation.”


In Touch Weekly says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have allegedly been spending time apart. A source says, “Ben and J. Lo are normally together 24/7, but lately, they’ve been spending time apart. Jen’s need to make their relationship so public and perfect often leaves Ben feeling overwhelmed and henpecked. He just needs to be by himself sometimes, out of her shadow. She’s giving him some breathing room. Of course she was a little hurt, but she knows he loves her. He just needed a break from the red carpets and publicity that she craves.”



Life & Style Weekly says Jennifer Garner is allegedly engaged to boyfriend John Miller.  A source says, “They are perfect for each other. John really is her other half. She’s told friends, ‘I’ve never known love like this!’ John has land in Malibu. It might happen there. It would be awkward to have Ben at the wedding because Jen would have to invite J.Lo. And Jen and John don’t want to invite any more publicity than necessary, they want no distractions. This is their special day. They’re much more low-key and want to keep their wedding private.”


Emily Blunt tells People magazine that not every on-screen kiss has been enjoyable for her.   "I’ve definitely not enjoyed some of it. Chemistry is this strange thing. It’s an ethereal thing that you can’t really bottle up and buy or sell. It’s like there or it’s not. It’s just easier when you have a natural rapport with someone.”


In Touch Weekly says Keanu Reeves is helping Sandra Bullock with her Hollywood comeback. A source says, “It’s an open secret that Keanu doesn’t physically feel up to keep making action movies deep into his sixties and he’s veering back into light comedy and animation to give his body a break. His connection with Sandra is real and it’s long-lived, but they do want to do one more movie together, preferably a comedy. Sandra is in script reading-mode right now, hunting down material. It’s basically perfect timing and after ten years of grim murdering across four grueling John Wick films, Keanu is finally getting back to being goofy, funny and romantic, in that order!” 



In Touch Weekly says George and Amal Clooney are allegedly considering raising their kids in France. The couple recently made a secluded property in the South of France their main residence. They love the countryside lifestyle and value the privacy for their twins, Ella and Alexander. A source says, “As much as they both love big cities like Los Angeles and London, they feel that a smaller town offers a lot more for their kids, especially when it comes to privacy.”


The Robb Report says Drew Barrymore is selling her Hamptons estate for $8.4 million, after buying it for $5.5 million in 2019. The property features a six-bedroom, five-bath farmhouse-style home, a guest cottage, a pool, scenic grounds and a bocce court


Jerry Seinfeld tells People magazine that he wanted Chris Rock to parody his Will Smith slap in his Netflix movie, 'Unfrosted'. "The other thing I wanted to do that I almost did was Chris Rock was going to be the emcee of the Bowl And Spoon Awards — and we shot that right after the Will Smith slap. I was going to have somebody come up on the stage and have Chris punch 'em out as they got there, but Chris wasn't up to perform."

Dear Fonseca,

Our boss surprised everyone at work yesterday by taking all of the mothers out to lunch for Mother's Day. At lunch, we got into a discussion about whether or not a gift card is really a Mother's Day gift. The staff was split. I started the argument by saying gift cards aren't Mother's Day gifts because they show no effort or creativity. Several other mothers agreed. The other half of the table did not. They say they like gift cards because they can buy what they want. That's what their husband tells them. To me, a gift card is a ‘cop out gift’. Is a gift card a true Mother's Day gift? Can you ask your listeners what they think? I'm curious where they stand.
