Celebrity Snippets: Random Bits of Entertainment News 8/2

New babies, a DUI, and a Twilight star buys himself a really pricey toy.

  • Actress Marla Sokolov (‘The Practice’, ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’) and her husband, composer Puro, are expecting their first child together. The baby is due early next year.
  • Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Fantasia Barrino is expecting her second child. Fantasia is already mom to 9-year-old Zion.
  • Taylor Lautner spent a few dollars of his Twilight millions this week. The actor (escorted by his parents) purchased a 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG for $200,000. I will bite my tongue on this one. Biting hard.
  • Samantha Ronson, ex-girlfriend of Lindsay Lohan, was picked up for DUI at 10:30 yesterday morning. The DJ admitted to officers that she was on her way home from a weekend in Vegas. She was initially pulled over for doing 89mph in a 70mph zone.
  • Model Alexis Knapp gave her new daughter Ryan Phillippe’s last name. They named her Kailani Merizalde Phillippe Knapp. Ryan isn’t yet listed as the baby’s father on the birth certificate, but he was present for the delivery and has been supportive of Alexis all through the pregnancy and beyond. Kudos to them for making the best of a difficult situation.
