Sara Bareilles, Josh Groban to host the Tonys telecast on CBS
Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban are set to host the 72nd annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York City on June 10.

Bareilles was a 2016 Tony nominee for the score she wrote for Waitress. She also was recently seen in NBC's live concert version of Jesus Christ Superstar.

Bareilles' fellow singer-songwriter Groban was nominated in 2017 for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.

This year's gala honoring excellence on Broadway is to air live on CBS from Radio City Music Hall.

"The theater has completely transformed my life in every way possible. I have never felt more embraced and encouraged by a professional community, and I am so grateful for that," Bareilles said in a statement Wednesday. "I feel incredibly lucky to get to spend an evening celebrating and applauding this outstanding collective of artists, friends, collaborators and creatives."

"Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban electrified and inspired audiences last year when they brought their incredible talents to Broadway," added Jack Sussman, executive vice president of specials, music and live events for CBS Entertainment. "These two have great chemistry together, and we can't wait to see what they have in store as hosts for this year's Tony Awards."

Broadway stars Katharine McPhee and Leslie Odom Jr. are to announce the names of the 2018 Tony nominees on May 1.

Kate Hudson's baby bump gets 'hugs' from Steven Tyler
Kate Hudson's baby bump got "some good hugs" from Steven Tyler over the weekend.

The 38-year-old actress posted a photo of the sweet moment Monday on Instagram after announcing she's expecting with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

The picture shows Tyler, the 70-year-old frontman of Aerosmith, cradling Hudson's growing belly. The snapshot was taken by Tyler's eldest daughter, actress Liv Tyler, who is a longtime friend of Hudson's.

"Baby girl got some good hugs from Papa Tyler this weekend @iamstevent @misslivalittle," Hudson captioned the photo.

Hudson and Liv both attended Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk's star-studded engagement party Saturday in Los Angeles. People reported the event at the Los Angeles Theatre was "very glamorous" but not "stuffy."

"It felt intimate and very special," a source said. "You could tell that all guests very much love the couple."

Hudson announced in an Instagram post April 6 that she's expecting a baby girl with Fujikawa. She already shares 14-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson and 6-year-old son Bingham with ex-fiance Matt Bellamy.
