We now know how Lionel Richie found out he has another grandchild on the way. His daughter Sofia Richie and her husband, Elliot Grainge, told their parents all together. “I think I had a box—I want to say it was a Hermès box or some sort of box—and I told everyone that I had bought them a gift from Milan Fashion Week,” Sofia told Vogue. “Everyone was like ‘Ooooh Hermes!’ But then they opened it and it had all three of the pregnancy tests.”

(NOTE LANGUAGE) Justin Timberlake is prepared to defend Saturday Night Live cast member Sarah Sherman in the promo for this weekend’s episode. After Sarah laments her Oscar snub, Justin asks her: “Wait, what movie were you in?” She tells him she meant Oscar the Grouch, who she says turned her down for a date. “Just tell me how to get to Sesame Street and I will beat his a**!” Justin responds.

Speaking of Justin, his fellow NSYNC member Lance Bass is supporting his new single, “Selfish.” Lance posted a Reel to Instagram, in which he eats broccoli while his husband, Michael Turchin, eats a sheet cake topped with frosting that reads, “I [heart] JT.” He captioned the post, “This video is brought to you by diabetes and my Selfish husband … Congrats @justintimberlake on the new banger!”
