Roger Federer and his wife Mirka (Miroslava Vavrinec) are the proud parents of twin girls, the tennis legend announced early Friday morning on his official site.

Daughters Charlene Riva Federer and Myla Rose Federer arrived late Thursday evening in Switzerland, the 15-time Grand Slam singles champion said joyously.

"This is the greatest day of our lives," the Swiss Roger Federer, 27, said in a statement. "Mirka, Myla and Charlene are all healthy and doing very well."

Roger and Mirka Federer have welcomed a new doubles team!

The couple, who has been together nine years but just tied the knot in April, had announced the pregnancy in March, but never that they were expecting twins.

In fact, word was it was to be a boy, singular.

Earlier this month, Federer defeated Andy Roddick in an epic match to win Wimbledon, his 15th Grand Slam tennis title, surpassing Pete Sampras' record 14. 

Congratulations to the happy new parents!

Things are looking up Kelis. A day after welcoming a baby boy, the singer was awarded nearly $44,000 in monthly support from her ex Nas at a hearing Thursday.

That's enough to cover more than half her $80,000 in expenses! Go, Kelis!

The "Milkshake" provider filed for divorce from the rapper in April while she was seven months pregnant. Nas, who was not there as she welcomed son Knight in NYC, had initially asked a court to deny Kelis any spousal support.

He then proposed paying Kelis a one-time payment of $20,000 until the judge could settle on an appropriate spousal and child support amount at a later hearing.

Nas' income is $147,000 a month.

Unsympathetic Nas wanted Kelis to fend for herself.

But on Thursday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Louis Meisinger rejected the offer, stating that new mom Kelis needed more money to accommodate her life.

Contacted by Us Weekly after the birth of Knight on Thursday, Kelis' rep said: "The beautiful baby boy and his mother are doing wonderful."

Swoon alert: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner made appearances at San Diego's Comic-Con 2009, hitting the red carpet and a press conference.

While Rob and Kristen appeared a little cold towards each other at first, an eyewitness tells OK! the twosome warmed up as they answered questions about the film.

Sure they did.

Robsten "had their guard up," says the onlooker, but body language doesn’t lie - when asked about their chemistry, Rob blushed and a smile lit Kristen’s face.

We are totally just moments away from Kristen seducing him.

Here's a New Moon Comic-Con photo of the three stars ...

As the the mood lightened, Kristen’s attitude towards both Robert and Taylor “was very playful.” The two studs then made faces at each other. Like, OMG!!

While recent tabloid reports have been dominated by stories about Kristen and Rob and how he "really wants her," today's press conference focused on the film.

Interestingly enough, when asked to describe his favorite scene, Robert Pattinson picked one of the saddest - New Moon spoiler alert! - when Edward leaves Bella.

“I think my breakup scene was my favorite scene,” he revealed. “Hopefully it will come off as having quite a few more levels than the relationship in Twilight.”

Not only does Paris Hilton share a name with Michael Jackson’s daughter, the ho-tel heiress says the King of Pop asked her mom's permission to use it.

Right. Because the Hiltons have a famed European capital trademarked.

“My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13,” the useless celebutante said in an interview with Extra.

“So I grew up knowing Michael Jackson very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me."

"So he asked my mom if it was okay and of course she said yes and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name.”

Paris, Not France Star

If it's somehow true that Paris Jackson can credit this infamous Hollywood celebrity for her name, boy did that decision come back to bite Michael.

You think you're naming your daughter after the most beautiful city in the world, then some worthless socialite goes and sullies it by starring in a sex tape and serving time behind bars for DUI. Sometimes, no good deed goes unpunished.

As for the derivation of Michael's sons' names, Prince Michael Jackson and Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., those pretty much speak for themselves.

No word on who Omer Bhatti is named for.

Kate Major, the reporter who has allegedly started dating Jon Gosselin in the past week, has resigned from her position at Star Magazine, effective today.

"Star Magazine Senior Reporter Kate Major resigned this morning, Thursday, July 23, citing a conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin," reads a statement on Star's website.

Conflict of interest? That implies Star had credibility to begin with.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Major were first spotted Saturday at NYC restaurant Accademia di Vino, then made headlines this week when they had dinner in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan and Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin.

"I think it's authentic," Zarin told Us Weekly of Gosselin's relationship with Kate Major. "I think it's fast. I think it happened very quickly."

Gosselin has yet to confirm a romance with Major, but the news comes less than a week after Gosselin admitted he was dating Hailey Glassman, the stoner daughter of the surgeon who performed soon-to-be-ex-wife Kate's tummy tuck.

Kate Major, Jon Gosselin

WHAT A PLAYER: Not only is Jon Gosselin apparently dating two chicks at the same time, he is still married to someone else! And has eight kids with her! Classy.

As if this story weren't hilarious and weird enough as it is, no one was more surprised to hear about Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend than Hailey Glassman herself.

"That's news to me," Glassman told People when she asked about the rumors that Kate Major, 26, is now an item with Jon Gosselin. Talk about awkward, People.

Us Weekly quotes Major as confirming the relationship, saying: "I didn't mean it to happen, it just did. I went to do a story on him and ended up falling for Jon."

Just a few days ago, Hailey Glassman, 22, was gushing about Jon: "This is perfect. It just fits," she said, possibly confusing him with her mouth and a bong.

Although Hailey knew that Jon and Kate Major were hanging out in the Hamptons together this week, she didn't realize the trip may have turned romantic.

"I still love Jon and Jon loves me," a teary Glassman said.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger just issued a statement to the media, denying sexual assault allegations made by Andrea McNulty.

Appearing to read the statement in person at the press conference but not taking any questions from reporters afterward, Ben Roethlisberger said:

"I did not sexually assault Andrea McNulty. Saturday was the first that I learned of her accusations. Her false and vicious allegations are an attack on my family and on me. I would never, ever force myself on a woman."

"I want to fight to protect my family and my reputation."

"I'm not going to discuss my private life or this civil case in the media. I'll respond to her outrageous allegations in the appropriate forum."

"I have an obligation to our fans, my teammates, my coaches and everyone in the organization to remain focused on the Pittsburgh Steelers and I will do that."

"The allegations against me are reckless and false."

"As much as I would like to answer everyone's questions, I going to respect the legal process and I am confident that the truth will prevail."

McNulty claims Ben Roethlisberger came on to her at the Nevada hotel where she works and would not stop despite her repeated protestations that he do so.

Ben's accuser has also been experiencing a number of mental health issues since the incident. It is unclear how this may play into the civil case filed this week.

Do you believe Andrea McNulty?

 

Here's a video of Ben's press conference ...

For reasons unknown to anyone alive, The Hills star Heidi Montag has been selected to perform during the 2009 Miss Universe Pageant telecast next month.

Talk about hitting a low note in the history of pageants and music.

The god-awful "singer" will belt out "Turn Ya Head" off her upcoming debut record, Unleashed, during the August 23 broadcast. Across America and the world, remote control MUTE buttons will be punished with unprecedented force.

Access Hollywood reports that Celebrity Apprentice star Claudia Jordan, Flo Rida, Kelly Rowland and DJ David Guetta also will take the stage that night.

But the true star of the evening will be horsey-face herself ...

Despite the new Miss Universe gig, it would be the understatement of the year to say that Mrs. Spencer Pratt's singing hasn't been embraced by the public.

Shortly after debuting her first single and video, "Higher," in 2008, online critics slammed her on the web. At least the ones that weren't doubled over laughing.

"Excuse me while I go vomit," "WTF is she serious," "LOL WUTTTT" and "give me a f**king break" were among the responses by The Hollywood Gossip readers.

Montag said, "I cried myself to sleep that first night after my video came out. I am just a 21-year-old from a small town in Colorado trying to follow her dreams."

With the fake boobs, nose and lips to prove it, too.

She hasn't been deterred by fan reaction, or by having no talent whatsoever, as she's subsequently dropped the singles "No More," "Overdosin'" and "Black Out."

They all sound similar and are equally terrible.

Solange Knowles, the lesser-known and long-suffering sister of Beyonce, has long resented the inevitable comparisons to her famous diva sibling.

She once joked that she would "go crazy like Britney" if people kept comparing her to her sister. Well, people apparently didn't heed her warning.

With her new haircut, Solange is channeling her inner Britney Spears in a big way. And by "haircut," we mean shaved head. We mean Solange is bald.

B's little sis hit the streets of L.A. in a new shorn hairstyle yesterday. The 23-year-old completely shaved off her locks for a "low-maintenance" look.

"Low-maintenance" is apparently the code for bat$h!t insane. Check out the photo comparison below and tell us what you think of Solange's haircut ...

Do you like Solange's new haircut (bald head)?

Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano is among top New Jersey politicians and dozens of others in the Garden State and Brooklyn - including five rabbis - who were nailed Thursday in a wide-sweeping probe of an international money laundering ring.

In all, 44 people were charged during raids connected to an alleged scheme operating between Brooklyn, N.Y., Deal, N.J., and Israel that police believe laundered tens of millions of dollars through charities controlled by area rabbis.

In addition to Peter Cammarano, Secaucus Mayor Denis Elwell, Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Baldini, Jersey City Council President Mariano Vega and two state assemblymen were among those rounded up by the FBI and expected to be arraigned.

Apparently, as Eliot Spitzer, Mark Sanford, Kwame Kilpatrick and other high-profile politicians can attest, public service and shady behavior go hand-in-hand!

Acting U.S. Attorney Ralph Marra said the arrests underscore "more than ever the pervasive nature of public corruption in this state," adding that in New Jersey, "corruption was a way of life. They existed in an ethics-free zone."

Highlights of the takedown of Peter Cammarano and others:

  • Peter Cammarano, only in office about three weeks, who was charged with accepting $25,000 in bribes, including $10,000 just last Thursday.
  • Assemblyman L. Harvey Smith is being charged, with an aide, for taking $15,000 in bribes to secure building approvals, per the investigation.
  • Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt, charged with accepting a $10,000 bribe. Numerous rabbis from synagogues in Brooklyn and Deal were charged with laundering proceeds from criminal activities through their charities.
  • One Brooklyn man, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, is even accused of trafficking in (yes) human organs, having convinced vulnerable people to donate their kidneys for $10,000 and selling them for $160,000 to recipients, prosecutors said.

Wow, that's a new one. There's no explaining that away, Levy.

About the only thing missing is Robert Pattinson gossip. That you can read 24/7 at The Hollywood Gossip as he seeks or breaks up with a different girlfriend hourly.
