Bryce Dallas Howard and Seth Gabel welcomed a daughter on Thursday, according to the actress' father, famed movie director Ron Howard. He wrote:

"Beatrice Jean Howard-Gabel Born Jan 19 2012 8lbs 6oz Bryce & Baby B are spectacular Daddy Seth & brother Theo are beaming ear to ear :-) "

In August, The Help star told Jay Leno that her 4½-year-old son predicted that his new sibling was going to be a girl. Looks like he was correct!

The actress has spoken candidly about the postpartum depression she suffered four years ago, but described feeling "euphoric" this time around.

Adding to the celebration for newly arrived Beatrice were congratulatory Tweets from the likes of Octavia Spencer, M. Night Shyamalan and Jennifer Connelly.

Director Shyamalan's message: "Ron, tell Bryce congratulations from our whole family. I'll be waiting to cast Beatrice in a few years! :-) "

Congrats to Bryce, Seth, Theo and Ron!

It's not easy to bring a global best-seller to the big screen, especially when it deals with the sensitive topic of race.

But, as socialite Hilly Holbrook in the The Help, that's the mission in front of Bryce Dallas Howard. It's not one she expected to undertake, considering how different Hilly is from the actress' past parts in The Twilight Saga and The Village.

"I don't think I would have cast myself," Howard laughed in an interview with Movie Fanatic. "So, once I was cast, I had to have a certain amount of faith in the producers and director for making the right decision or I would have been a little fearful that I couldn’t do it."

Bryce Dallas Howard is pregnant! Again!

The actress, whose latest film The Help is due out this summer, is expecting her second child with husband Seth Gabel, her rep confirmed late Thursday.

The couple has a son, 4-year-old Theo.

Howard famously appeared in last year's Eclipse in the role of Victoria, which was controversially stripped from Rachelle Lefevre after the first two Twilight films.

A few years after she became a mom, Howard wrote a candid account of her battle with postpartum depression. It's something many moms can relate to.

Hopefully, upon announcing her latest pregnancy, she's in a better place with it and has all the support she needs. Congratulations to the happy family.

For the first time, Bryce Dallas Howard is speaking out about her 2007 case of postpartum depression.

In an essay on Goop.com, the Eclipse star writes that she was "mortified" by her weight gain while carrying son Theo and then, after he was born:

Bryce and Son

"I felt I was failing at breast feeding. My house was a mess. I believed I was a terrible dog owner. I was certain I was an awful actress."

Postpartum depression reveals itself in many ways - from anxiety to loss of sleep to reduced libido - and affects between 5% to 25% of new mothers, with percentages varying based on the severity of the symptoms.

Worst of all, Howard says: "I definitely felt I was a rotten mother - not a bad one, a rotten one. Because the truth was, every time I looked at my son, I wanted to disappear."

The actress adds that she screamed expletives at husband Seth Gabel and exhibited behavior "he had never experienced in the seven years we had been together."

But, fortunately, Howard got help, which included reading Brooke Shields' "Down Came the Rain" and speaking to a therapist. She now describes herself as happier than ever.

When Howard was first announced as the replacement for Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse, Twilight fans were outraged. But their anger was never directed at the actress herself - and we're sure we speak for all of them when we say:

Glad you're doing better, Bryce!

Kristen Stewart is stuck traveling the globe with Taylor Lautner. That poor, poor girl.

Meanwhile, a bunch of her Twilight Saga castmates gathered together for an interview with Vanity Fair, in which they each dishe on various aspects of the franchise. Let's see what they had to say...

Nikki Reed in Rome

Nikki Reed (Rosalie Cullen), on the appeal of the movies: “Bella and Edward’s love is very taboo and forbidden and I think that kind of represents all youthful relationships, because that’s what all first loves feel like... It’s sort of borderline, like, insane.”

Elizabeth Reaser (Esme), on male co-stars, such as Lautner and Robert Pattinson: “Oh, it gets so old, you have no idea. It has no effect on me. They’re all gorgeous and lovely boys... You just want someone interesting and weird at a certain point. I have a massive crush on Larry David.”

Bryce Dallas Howard (Victoria): “I had seen Twilight innumerable times. After I saw it for the fourth time, one of my best guy friends, for my birthday, made me Post-it notes with Robert Pattinson’s face that said, ‘Live Dangerously,’ because I was so obsessed. My husband actually said to me, ‘Do I need to be worried about this?’”

Ashley Greene (Alice), on Eclipse: “You don’t have to be psychic to know how this movie’s going to do. Obviously, it’s going to be a hit."

Two new photos from Eclipse have been leaked, and each is OMG-worthy for its own reason.

First, fans can get their first look at Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria. The actress controversially took over this key role from Rachelle Lefevre after the latter portrayed the character for the first two Twilight Saga films.

In the scene below, Victoria is not getting along very well with Edward, is she?

Meanwhile, the second Eclipse image truly has fans buzzing. For what reason? It's a simple equation:

Kristen Stewart + Robert Pattinson - A couple shirt buttons + A steamy embrace = YOU BETTER CHECK OUT THE PHOTO BELOW RIGHT THIS VERY INSTANT.

It didn't take long for Bryce Dallas Howard to be thrown into the Twilight Saga fire.

In July, it was announced that the actress would take over the role of Victoria from Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse. The casting news set off a firestorm among fans of this franchise.

The anger has died down a bit over the last few months, but will likely start up again as we inch closer to the June 30, 2010 release date of the third Twilight movie. In a recent interview, though, Howard sought to quiet her critics.

She had nothing but nice things to say about Lefevre when asked about replacing her in this key role.

"Rachelle really created an incredible character and is exquisite. I fell like the uproar that occurred was really appropriate, because... you’ve seen the actors grow with the franchise. And [Lefevre’s] unavailability [to do Eclipse] was really, really, really unfortunate," Howard said.

As for joining the Twilight Saga cast, which consists of such A-listers as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, Howard gushed:

"I was really struck by what an incredible group of young people are in that franchise. Their friendships are so genuine, and they really ground each other. There’s a lot of attention and scrutiny, but I’m truly moved by how solid they’ve remained in their values and belief systems and their caring of one another throughout all of that."

Sounds like Howard is doing everything she can to endear herself to Twilight fans. Is it working? Are you ready to welcome her warmly into the cast?

There's a major cast shake-up for Twilight fans to wake up to this morning.

No, neither Robert Pattinson nor Kristen Stewart nor Taylor Lautner is going anywhere.

But Rachelle Lefevre, who played the evil character of Victoria in the first movie and will do so again in New Moon, will be replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard in the franchise's third installment, Eclipse.

Howard will begin shooting, along with the rest of the cast, in Vancouver on August 17.

Can you picture Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria?

The studio said the switch was made due to scheduling conflicts.

Dallas Howard is the daughter of director Ron Howard. She's starred in Terminator Salvation and Spider-Man 3, among many other films.

This is the second major casting news announced this month for Eclipse. Xavier Samuel will star as Riley in the much-anticipated flick.
