Leelee Sobieski and fashion designer fiancé Adam Kimmel had a baby girl.

The Emmy-nominated actress delivered a daughter late Wednesday evening in New York, Sobieski's rep confirms. No name has been released.

The couple – who became engaged in June and announced the pregnancy in September – are still planning to wed ... just a little bit later now.

"We have pushed that back," the actress said about her nuptials to Adam Kimmel. "Now we are going to maybe get married in the spring."

Congratulations to Leelee Sobieski and Adam Kimmel!

The Joan of Arc star most recently appeared in summer's Public Enemies alongside Johnny Depp; She can next be seen in The Mad Cow opposite Jeffrey Tambor.

Gym teacher Brad Ferro punched Snooki (Nicole Pilozzi) in the face in what has become the most infamous scene from Jersey Shore, even though it hasn't aired yet (it was supposed to tonight) and MTV decided to edit out the brutal KO.

Now he wants her to know he's sorry.

"I am sick to my stomach," Brad Ferro tells the New York Post. "I can''t believe I'd ever do anything like that. I was raised to act in a respectful manner to women."

"I deeply regret what happened," he says of punching Snooki, which you can still see online if you must. "Nobody deserves that. That was not the real Brad Ferro."

Snooki Polizzi

Ferro was arrested back on August 19 after knocking Nicole Polizzi the f*%k out at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill in Seaside Heights, N.J., and was suspended from his job.

He also enrolled in anger management courses. That's a good thing.

Brad, who admits he "drank way too much" that night, says that just days before, he taught his students about bad decisions and the dangers of alcohol abuse.

"I remember very little from the incident," Ferro says. "It's all fuzzy. I remember a punch ... I don't remember who or why, but I do remember being arrested."

Ferro's lawyer Andrew Siben says his client has learned his lesson and "should be given a second chance to show he is a person of much higher character."

Jersey Shore airs tonight, sans Snooki punch, on MTV at 10 p.m.

Brad Ferro punched Snooki's lights out this summer.

The worst part: the attack was all over a drink. Ferro tried to take Snooki's cocktail and when she yelled at him for it, he retaliated ... with a fist. Loser.

Where in the world is the embattled Tiger Woods?

It's been three weeks now since one of the biggest celebrity sex scandals in history erupted, but the world's #1 golfer himself is nowhere to be seen.

He's always fiercely guarded his privacy, likely due in part to the 11 mistresses he was hollering at, and Tiger certainly hasn't changed his stripes.

Since the scandal blew up, Woods has been AWOL, commenting only briefly on his website with an apology and then announcing his break from golf.

So where is he? According to a resident in Woods' Windermere, Fla., community, he "comes by in the evening only for their counseling and therapy."

Where is Tiger Woods? Laying low, and on the driving range.

Woods is believed to be staying in another property he owns locally, although he has not been seen in public in Orlando or anywhere else in weeks.

After therapy sessions - which a source describes as Tiger "just apologizing over and over again" - Woods heads to a nearby course to hit golf balls.

"He tries to clear his head," another local says. "He goes after dark so he can't be seen. For him, what's more therapeutic than hitting golf balls?"

"It's the thing he's best at in the whole world."

The thing that he's worst at may be marriage, and it looks like it's too late. A new report claims that Elin Nordegren - mother to Tiger's two children Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months - will divorce him in the very near future.

Forget the Grinch. Hayden Wright, a Tennessee four-year-old, stands accused of stealing Christmas presents from his neighbors, according to reports.

Hayden is accused of committing his holiday thievery after consuming a beer. Yeah, that'll do it every time. Happened to one of our interns last week.

He was found at 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday wandering the streets in a little brown dress that he is believed to have stolen from under a neighbor's tree.

The kid entered after he rang the door bell, took the dress, then moved on to another house. Nice of those first people to intervene and call for help!

Hayden's mother, April Wright, is going through a divorce from Hayden's father, who is in jail, and she thinks he may have been looking for his dad.

"He runs away trying to find his father," said 21-year-old April. "He wants to get in trouble so he can go to jail because that's where his daddy is."

Really, April? He's four! And was drunk at the time!

Here's a news report on poor Hayden Wright ...

Sending packages and letters to stars containing your delusional and paranoid thoughts? That's creepy stuff, to be sure, but fairly manageable as far as stalkers go these days. Get a restraining order and they usually back off.

Showing up at their kids' pre-school? Now we're talking dangerous.

Steven Burky, a accused of stalking Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck more than once before, is a barrage of criminal charges for what he pulled this week.

Cops arrested the stalker on Monday outside the L.A. nursery school where their daughter Violet Affleck is enrolled. That's just terrifying for Jen and Ben.

The L.A. District Attorney has charged Steven Burky with two counts of felony stalking on top of two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a court order.

For breaking the restraining order filed against him last year, natch.

Garner has claimed in court documents that Burky has been stalking her since 2002. She was granted the restraining order against the weirdo last year.

Steven Burky could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

A 911 call from a woman driving behind Chris Henry during the pickup truck incident that ultimately took his life provided a new, scary take on the events.

She told the dispatcher that the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, shirtless, was "beating on the back window of the truck," presumably from its bed.

His arm was in a cast from injuries suffered during this NFL season.

At some point during the Wednesday incident, the football player fell from the truck, sustaining injuries that left Chris Henry dead at age 26 this morning.

A second person also called 911 after Chris Henry fell.

Reporting the severity of the situation, the man said that Henry was "laying in the middle of the road," was clearly badly injured and surrounded by people.

It is unclear what prompted the bizarre situation, but Henry's fiancee, Loleini Tonga, was believed to have been driving the vehicle he fatally fell from.

You can listen to both 911 calls here.

R.I.P. The Cincinnati Bengals' Chris Henry (1983-2009).

Former Alaska Governor and current famous person Sarah Palin says she meant no disrespect to Sen. John McCain by blacking out his name on a sun visor.

On vacation in Hawaii, Palin for some reason chose to wear a visor from her campaign emblazoned with McCain's name scribbled out with black marker.

Palin said she just wore it to stay under the radar (!?) and that the hotel where she and her family were staying had to chase away five photographers.

Here's the text of the statement she released today:

"I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way. I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection."

"As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago. So much for trying to be incognito."

So, in summation, Sarah Palin is saying that:

  1. The visor could transform one of the most famous people in politics into a plan ol' ordinary soccer mom on a Hawaiian beach (wearing a shirt that said "If you don't like America, why don't you get the hell out?" no less).
  2. Blacking out small print that simply read "McCain," as in her former running mate, somehow fit into this brilliant plan to make the visor more discreet.
  3. The gesture was entirely devoid of motive.

Eh, we'll buy it. Consider the source.

Jon Gosselin is almost ready to (legally) become a free man. Looks like Hailey Glassman won't be there to help him celebrate his divorce, though.

The 22-year-old ex-fling of the reality star was spotted kissing celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman at a Pennsylvania bar on Wednesday.

Jon and Hailey Glassman

All the while, Jon Gosselin was fuming mad inside his car.

Despite claims that he’s over Glassman, the douchebag dad seemed shaken up that Hailey's moved on and found a new guy with a "real" job.

“Hailey and Damon really like one another and they have started to date casually," a source said. “While Hailey was inside doing promotional work, Jon just kept on bombarding her with texts from his car, trying to get in and see her.

“He was messaging her: 'I want to talk. I just want to talk.' Eventually a couple of us went out and told him to stop but he refused to go away."

WTF JON!?! Hailey Glassman's been saying that a lot lately.

“Eventually, Hailey took one of his calls and barked 'Leave me alone! Stop stalking me please!' He seemed to get the message and drove away from the venue, much to everybody’s relief because she wants nothing to do with the guy."

As for the new man in the life of Hailey Glassman: “Damon really likes Hailey and wants to get to know her, so Gosselin, just stay out of the picture!”

Thanks to a recent court ruling, at least he'll be off of your TV set.

Jon and Hailey, who are rumored to be still living together despite a contentious breakup, have also been at odds in the courtroom lately.

Deposed by lawyers from TLC who are suing Jon Gosselin for breach of contract, Hailey labeled Jon a "monster" and a "master manipulator."

Next up for Jon? A January court date. For Hailey? She'll be refereeing a celebrity boxing event this Friday at the Philadelphia Airport Ramada.

The main event pits John Wayne Bobitt against local fighter Tony Fusco.

Lady Gaga is a real pro at going down.

Or something. For the second time in her current Monster Ball tour, the supposed hermaphrodite landed flat on her a$$ during a rendition of "Bad Romance."

The spill took place in Vancouver. A video of it appears below. Peep it below, because even if it's your favorite celeb, an on-stage spill is good for a chuckle.

On the plus side, she recovered before she could miss a ra-ra-ah-ah-ahhhh! Also, unlike certain performers, she clearly sings in concert. A novel concept!

Talking to you, Britney Spears, you hack ...
