Celeb in 5: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

It seems a single and mingling Brad Pitt uses the name he was born with when he flirts with women.

The intel comes from a "spy" eavesdropping on a conversation between the 54-year-old and a blonde woman in the queue at a cafe in LA, and reported by The New York Post's Page Six.

The eavesdropper heard the father-of-six introduce himself with his first name, William. And if you didn't know Brad Pitt's real name was William, you are not alone - we were just as surprised.

Apparently when the woman said, "I’m Lydia," the actor put out his hand and said, "Hi, I’m William."

Of course Lydia knew exactly who she was talking to and coyly responded,  "Oh, you look like a Bradley." And he said, "Well, that’s my middle name" and smiled and winked at her.

Oh, Brad - oops, we mean, Will.

2. Khloe Kardashian has announced the due date of her baby, birth watch ensues.

After what was possibly 2017's worst kept secret, Khloe Kardashian finally announced her pregnancy last month.

The reality TV star has now given us another baby-related-crumb of information, hinting at the due date of the latest addition to the Kardashian Klan.

She confirmed she was six months pregnant.

"Officially six months," she captioned an Instagram photo of herself.

Risking the double upload, less than an hour later Kardashian also posted another picture of herself alongside boyfriend Tristan Thompson with the caption "Mom and Dad."

Some very complex mathematical formulas indicate this means the baby will be due in March or early April.

Khloe has confirmed the pregnancy announcement will be included in the latest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so we're guessing the birth probably will too.

Until the next crumb, adieu.

3. Praise Be! The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants reunites to rub America Ferrera's belly.

Oh, no big deal guys. We just wanted to let you know the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants has reunited.

Real-life mates Blake Lively, Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel caught up in the New Year to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Ferrera's first child with husband, Ryan Piers Williams.

“Starting the New Year off with blessings from my Sisterhood. We’ve got work to do for the next generation. Let’s get to it. #TIMESUP,” Ferrera wrote in the caption, referring to a letter in the New York Times in solidarity with women who experienced discrimination, harassment and abuse.

Tamblyn, 34, shared the same photo with the caption, “Didn’t think anything could beat starting off the new year with the #TIMESUP Legal Defense Fund initiative yesterday, but then…”

Being the Sisterhood and all, we're not surprised these kick arse women took the chance the acknowledge the $13 million dollar workplace sexual harassment initiative, #TimesUp.

4. Alex Nation reflects on her 'challenging 2017'. Joins the club.

I'm going to be straight up and say in 2017, I didn't always get it right. It presented itself with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It dealt me cards that I wasn't expecting. It was honestly one of the most challenging years of my life. As I reflect on the year that was, I am filled with a concoction of emotions. I'm both overwhelmed and elated. Whilst I was faced with many challenges and inner turmoils, my journey for self love and inner peace continued and with this the self growth was immense. A lot of doors opened for me in 2017 and sadly some had to close. But just because one door closes and another opens, it doesn't mean I forget what was and what has lead me to this very moment. Hey I'm thankful for what has been and what is yet to come. 2018, I'm dying to get to know you ✨

Yeah, 2017 was a bit crap, wasn't it?

One person who 100 per cent agrees is former Bachelor winner, Alex Nation. In an obligatory 'end of year' Instagram post on Wednesday, the 26-year-old reflected on some of the stuff she's realised in 2017 - a la Kylie Jenner.

"I'm going to be straight up and say in 2017, I didn't always get it right. It presented itself with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It dealt me cards that I wasn't expecting. It was honestly one of the most challenging years of my life," she wrote.

"As I reflect on the year that was, I am filled with a concoction of emotions. I'm both overwhelmed and elated. Whilst I was faced with many challenges and inner turmoils, my journey for self love and inner peace continued and with this the self growth was immense."

Referring to what we can only assume was the demise of her relationship with Richie Strahan, Nation addressed the opening and closing doors of the year that was.

"A lot of doors opened for me in 2017 and sadly some had to close. But just because one door closes and another opens, it doesn't mean I forget what was and what has lead me to this very moment. Hey 2018, I'm dying to get to know you."

Us too, Alex. Us too.

Oh Jesus, things are about to get a lot more hectic around the Gaines' presumably impeccably styled household.

Fixer Upper home reno duo, Chip and Joanna Gaines (said in a terrible southern accent) announced they're expecting their fifth child with a bloody hilarious post.

"Gaines party of 7.. (If you're still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT)," Chip captioned the pic of his wife's 'baby bump', and his own 'food baby'.

The couple recently announced their wildly popular TV show, which you can watch on 9Life in Australia, won't be coming back for a new season. And now, we understand why.
