The reality star Kylie Jenner became the most popular post on the social media site yesterday, surpassing Beyonce's pregnancy announcement of 2017.

Jenner shared a photo Tuesday of her new daughter's tiny hand captioned with the baby's name, Stormi Webster. The post had collected 13.7 million "likes" by Wednesday afternoon, compared with 11.2 million for Beyonce's pregnancy photo.

Born on February 1, Stormi is the first child for Jenner and her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott.

The 20-year-old Jenner is the youngest sibling in the Kardashian-Jenner clan. She kept largely out of public view during her pregnancy. In a social media post earlier this week, she said pregnancy was "the most beautiful, empowering and life changing experience" and that she will "miss it."

Jennifer Lopez has issued a statement in response to Kate Upton accusing Guess director Paul Marciano of sexual harassment.

The 48-year-old singer-and-actress is the designer brand's Guess Girl for their Spring/ Summer 2018 campaign, and has reacted to the claims made by the 25-year-old model, who slammed the fashion house for continuing to keep the co-founder in a position of power, insisting he behaves inappropriately towards women.

"My position on these issues is well known, as I have been very vocal about them. I do not condone any acts of sexual harassment, violation, or misconduct. Any accusations should be fully and thoroughly investigated. I will continue to support our rights as women," she said.

Mark Salling's death has officially been ruled as a suicide. The Glee actor was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography when he passed away at the age of 35 on Tuesday, and the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner has now confirmed the star took his own life.

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, which obtained the coroner's report, Salling's death was caused by asphyxia from hanging, just six weeks before his sentencing hearing which would see him face four to seven years in prison for his crimes.

Salling's death was confirmed in a family statement released on Tuesday.

Ellen Degeneres has given $1 million to fans in the audience for a taping of her talk show. The 60-year-old talk show host has been partnering with cereal brand Cheerios to encourage people to get involved in the One Million Acts of Good campaign, and during Thursday's taping of The Ellen Degeneres Show, the star surprised her audience - which was made up entirely of people who had taken part in the campaign - with a special gift.

She said: "I wanna take a moment to say, everybody in the audience is here for a special reason. All season long I've partnered with Cheerios to encourage people to do One Million Acts of Good, and if you're here in my audience, you helped us reach that goal."

Ellen then told the audience to check under their seats to see if they had a box of the breakfast snack, as every lucky chair would be winning a prize. When every person in the 400 capacity studio lifted up a box, Ellen revealed they would be getting an equal share of a whopping $1 million.
