Mick Jagger welcomes baby No. 8 at age 73
Mick Jagger is a dad again at age 73.

The Rolling Stones frontman welcomed a son with 29-year-old girlfriend Melanie Hamrick in New York, his publicist confirmed Thursday to the BBC.

The baby boy is Jagger's eighth child, and was born more than two years after the birth of his great-granddaughter, Ezra. Jagger's publicist said the star and Hamrick are "both delighted" with their son.

"Mick was at the hospital for the arrival," the spokesperson added. "Mother and baby are doing well and we request that the media respect their privacy at this time."

Jagger is also dad to Karis, 46, with Marsha Hunt, Jade, 45, with ex-wife Bianca Jagger, Elizabeth, 32, James, 31, Georgia May, 24, and Gabriel, 18, with Jerry Hall, and Lucas, 17, with Luciana Gimenez. He and Hamrick started dating in 2014 following the suicide of his longtime partner, L'Wren Scott.

"[They are] surprised and happy," a source told The Sun after word broke in June of Hamrick's pregnancy. "This is great news. It will be Mick's eighth child and nothing fazes him. He's been incredibly supportive."

"[Melanie] knows what a great relationship Mick has with all of his children and can't wait for him to be a dad again," the insider added. "They are taking the news in their stride."

Jagger's bandmate Ronnie Wood, 68, also became a father again in June. The musician welcomed twin baby girls, Gracie Ann and Alice Rose, with wife Sally Humphreys, 38, making him a dad of six.


Actor Judge Reinhold arrested after refusing TSA patdown in Dallas airport
Actor Judge Reinhold, best known for his roles in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and the "Beverly Hills Cop" series, was arrested in Dallas Thursday night after refusing a pat-down at the airport.

Police arrested Reinhold at Dallas Love Field on charges of disorderly conduct after becoming belligerent with Transportation Security Administration agents who requested a second pat-down after his bag set off one of the security alarms.

Dallas police confirmed there was an arrest at one of the gates after they were "alerted by the Transportation Security Administration regarding an individual causing a disturbance by refusing to submit to a screening at the appropriate checkpoint area. The officers responded and subsequently took the individual into custody after he refused to comply."

According to Reinhold's attorney, Steve Stodghill, the actor walked through security scanners without incident, but was stopped after his bag set off one of the alarms at the security gate.

TSA agents then asked Reinhold if they could pat him down a second time, with Reinhold refusing because he did not understand why they need to search him again. Reinhold reportedly escalated the scene after the agents offered to continue to search in a private room when he took off his shirt and used explicit language.

Police were alerted about the problem, arresting Reinhold on the disorderly conduct charge, which is a misdemeanor and carries a fine.

"Thanks for the exposure guys," Reinhold said to reporters waiting outside the Lew Sterrett Justice Center as police were leading him for booking. "Glad you're here."

Who's on the guest list for Seth Meyers' New Year's Eve special?


Candace Cameron Bure to depart 'The View'
Candace Cameron Bure will depart long-running ABC talk show The View.

The 40-year-old actress announced on Thursday's episode that she's leaving the series after less than two seasons as host to focus on other projects and her family.

"It's little bittersweet for me today because I'm announcing that I will be leaving The View. It wasn't an easy decision, but before I started The View I had already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel," Bure explained. "Because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows."

"The commute of going west coast to east coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well," she admitted. "I want to make sure that I'm able to spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent."

Bure appeared as a guest host on the show several times before being named a permanent co-host in August 2015. Series creator Barbara Walters, Jenny McCarthy and Rosie O'Donnell are among the many other stars who have come and gone in the past few years.

"On behalf of everyone at The View, it's been a pleasure working with Candace, a devoted mother, talented actress, and passionate co-host who never hesitated to speak her mind," executive producer Candi Carter said in a statement.

"We are thrilled for her success with Fuller House and her Hallmark movies. She will always be a part of The View family and we will gladly welcome her back to the show to support her with all of her endeavors," she added.

Bure is known for playing D.J. Tanner on Full House, and reprised the role for the Netflix sequel series Fuller House, which will release a second season Friday. Fellow View co-host Raven-Symone had announced in October that she's departing the show to work on That's So Raven 2.


Donald Trump to continue as executive producer on 'Celebrity Apprentice'
U.S. President-elect Donald Trump is to remain an executive producer on The Celebrity Apprentice, the NBC competition series he helped create.

MGM confirmed Trump's status with the show and Trump's spokeswoman Hope Hicks said the future commander-in-chief will maintain a financial interest in it.

"Mr. Trump has a big stake in the show and conceived of it with Mark Burnett," Hicks said.

CNN said it is unclear how much Trump will be paid per episode.

Actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will replace Trump as host of the business-themed, reality show when it returns Jan. 2 after a two-year break.
