Wednesday gossip roundup: Shakira gave birth to a baby boy!

It's a baby boy for Shakira!

Shakira gave birth to a baby boy, Milan Piqué Mebarak, in Barcelona, she announced via her Twitter account. “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life,” she posted. It’s the first child for the Colombian singer and Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué. The singer clarified the meaning behind the baby’s name in a statement on her Web site: “The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.”

The Wanted’s Max George is going out of his way to make it clear that he is not dating Lindsay Lohan, despite the actress’ attempts to keep people guessing about any possible relationship. When a fan tweeted to George, “If you date with Lindsay, I will die,” the British singer responded, “I’m not, so you’re fine,” adding that reports of his canoodling with the troubled starlet are “rumors, that’s all.”

Kelly Osbourne is reportedly engaged to Matthew Mosshart after a very hush-hush proposal a few weeks before Christmas, according to Us Weekly. “Kelly is the happiest she’s ever been,” a source says. “Her career is going well, and she’s in a healthy relationship with a wonderful guy.” Osbourne met Mosshart at Kate Moss‘ wedding in July 2011, and the pair have been dating for at least a year.

As Arnold Schwarzenegger attempts to mount a comeback for his movie career, he’s apparently also looking to get his marriage to Maria Shriver back on track. Shriver filed for divorce in 2011 after it came to light that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with the family’s housekeeper, but Shriver has made no further action to move the divorce forward. “We’re not fighting a war. I still hope for reconciliation,” he tells Germany’s Bild newspaper. “I still love Maria.”

Barely days after it was announced that J.J. Abrams was looking into producing a film about Lance Armstrong’s rise and fall, actors are already lining up to play the disgraced cyclist. “I would be interested in [playing Armstrong],” Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper tells BBC News. “I think he’s fascinating. What a fascinating character.” Cooper knows there’s been a lot of actors up for the part even before the most recent scandal, but he’s still optimistic. “I remember Matt Damon was going to do his autobiography at one point years ago,” he says. “I remember thinking, that would be a great character, I’d love to play that character. I would love to do something, I think he’s pretty fascinating.”
