The Spill: Saturday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed their third child two months ago. (Yeah. They forgot to tell us, too.)

In 2019, when the news never sleeps and everyone has a smart phone, it’s almost impossible for a celebrity to fart without it appearing on the internet minutes later.

It’s for this reason we are pretty darn impressed one of Hollywood’s favourite couples, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, welcomed their third child into the world and managed to keep it a secret.

According to US Weekly, a source confirmed Lively gave birth as long as two months ago. Lively and Reynolds are already parents to two daughters: James, four, and Inez, two.

Neither parents post photos of their kids on Instagram, which is probably why we haven’t seen or heard any info about their new baby, as is customary on social media.

Side note – we take a look at some of the best celebrity dads out there. Post continues after video.

Earlier this year, Reynolds told Fatherly.com they make an effort not to involve their kids in their public life.

“We live as normal a life as we can live. Our kids aren’t a part of Instagram or social media. I talk about them, but I never post photos of them and neither has Blake. It’s not something we would want to be a part of,” he said.

“Being in public is a choice that people should be allowed to make when they’re of age. I would never want them to resent me for that. I want them to have as normal a childhood as possible.”

Congratulations to Lively and Reynolds , but we’d still like to know how two of the world’s biggest stars managed to keep a newborn from making headlines.

Either these two are actually undercover FBI agents, or they have top notch security. Or both.

2. Miley Cyrus just wants to pash Cody Simpson in peace.

It’s been a few weeks since news of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s separation rocked us to our very core.

OK, bit dramatic. At the very least, hearing the couple who were married for just several months were done, made us wonder, R U OK Miley?

The answer is very much yes, as per the singer’s latest Instagram activity. You see, Miley was papped making out with Aussie singer Cody Simpson this week and was instantly slammed for moving on too fast.

And Miley isn’t having a bar of it.

The 26-year-old posted a series of Instagram Stories on Saturday, seemingly calling out anyone who wants to slut shame her for living her life, an aspect of which happens to involve kissing.

Here's her essay in full:

1. I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning …. I think that’s why people have always felt so entitled over my life and how I live it because they’ve watched me grow…. but I am grown now and make choices as an adult knowing the truth/details/reality. People only "know" what they see on the internet.

2. Men (especially successful ones) are RARELY slut shamed. They move on from one beautiful young woman to the next MOST times without consequence. They are usually referenced as "legends," "heartthrobs," "G," "Ladies Man" etc….. where women are called sluts/whores! I am trying to just THRIVE / survive in a "mans" world …. if we can’t beat em, join em! If our president can "grab em by the pussy…." can’t I just have a kiss and açaí bowl?!?!

3. I refuse to recluse and "date" from home cause A. That’s not fun B. Extremely uncomfortable / puts me in a vulnerable position …. I would like to share an activity with someone I am dating and not be stuck at home with pretty much nothing to do but "Netflix and chill"

4. This "dating" thing is new to me too. I’ve never been an "adult" / grown ass woman experiencing this …. I was in a committed relationship for almost All my teens and early 20s; with the exception of a few breaks, which usually in those times I was working my ass off with not much R&R…. and "meeting/ trusting" people in my position is really tuff. Don’t f***ing pity me, not what I’m asking for. I have a great life I wouldn’t trade for "privacy" but PLEASE don’t make this awkward for me! I am trying to make light and like always MAKE FUN of myself / and the public’s perception of me! Get used to me dating—this is where I am at! #HotGirlFall

Oh, and she posted a shirtless photo of Simpson, and footage of them kissing at a cafe with the caption: "Can a girl not get a f***ing acai bowl and a morning make out session in peace ???"

3. "Simply not true": Travis Scott has broken his silence on rumours he cheated on Kylie Jenner.

Entrepreneur Kylie Jenner and rapper Travis Scott have confirmed they have parted ways, after whispers swirled earlier this week.

But despite rumours that Scott, 27, cheated on the mother of his child, the Astroworld artist has denied and condemned the speculation.

"It’s really affecting when u see false things said about u [sic] once again these false stories about me cheating are just simply not true," Scott posted to his Instagram Stories on Friday.

"Focusing on life, music, and family at this moment is what’s real."

His comments follow Jenner also shutting down rumours that she was reconnecting with her former partner, Tyga.

"The internet makes everything 100 times more dramatic than what it really is," the makeup mogul tweeted on Thursday. "There was no '2am date with Tyga'. You see me drop two of my friends off at a studio that he happened to be at."

In other words, nothing to see here, folks.

Jenner and Scott started dating at Coachella in 2017 and have one child together, 20-month-old daughter Stormi.

4. Mandy Moore has shared behind-the-scenes photos from A Walk To Remember, and it's officially 2002.

If you were a teenager in the early 2000s, this needs no introduction. A Walk To Remember was the film of 2002 and we won't hear a word against it.

Based on the Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name, it has all the ingredients of a great romantic film: a sweet yet heartbreaking storyline, a soundtrack that tugged at the heartstrings and a totally crush-worthy pair of star-crossed lovers – Mandy Moore and Shane West.

Now, 17 years after the film's release, Mandy Moore has shared behind-the-scenes photo and obviously this means it's actually 2002 right now.

"Some BTS during the making of A Walk to Remember many moons ago (hello 2001)," the actress posted to her Instagram.

Even director Adam Shankman shared a picture from behind the scenes, saying: "Here’s a little treasure I just found in an old box under my house." The photo shows Shane West, Mandy Moore and himself on a couch, posing.

God, it feels as fresh as the first time we watched it.

5. Prince Harry claims his voicemail was illegally hacked by tabloids.

Prince Harry has begun legal action against the publishers of Rupert Murdoch’s Sun newspaper and the Daily Mirror due to allegations of phone hacking, as he steps up a battle against British tabloid media.

“Claims have been filed on behalf of The Duke of Sussex at the High Court regarding the illegal interception of voicemail messages,” a spokeswoman for Prince Harry said, declining to give further details of the claim. A spokeswoman for News Group Newspapers, publisher of The Sun, also confirmed that a claim had been issued by the Royal.

The phone-hacking allegations date back many years ago.

In 2013, a London court heard that the phones of Prince Harry and Kate Middleton were hacked by staff working for Rupert Murdoch’s now-defunct News of the World tabloid. News of the World had also been part of News Group Newspapers (owner of The Sun).

The news follows Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, announcing on Tuesday that she will be taking legal action against the Mail on Sunday over the “unlawful” publication of a private letter.
