Ryan Phillippe, baby daddy?

Whether or not Ryan Phillippe is the biological father of ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp’s newborn daughter is still up in the air, but the baby’s last name seems to suggest he is. On the baby’s birth certificate, her last name is listed as “Phillippe Knapp,” according to People magazine, though the section listing the girl’s father was left blank. Phillippe has previously indicated he’s ready to take responsibility for the girl should tests prove he is the father.

Sam Ronson busted for DUI

Samantha Ronson, Lindsay Lohan’s ex-girlfriend, was reportedly arrested for driving under the influence Monday morning. The celebrity DJ was heading back to L.A. after a gig in Las Vegas when she was stopped for speeding at 10:30 a.m., according to TMZ. “She was given a field sobriety test and didn’t perform well,” a source says.

DiCaprio is a rich, rich man

Leonardo DiCaprio has topped the Forbes magazine list of highest-paid actors, bringing in a reported $77 million in 2010. He did well on his two big releases last year, “Inception” and “Shutter Island,” earning an initial fee of around $15 million per film plus shares of each movie’s profits. Coming in second is Johnny Depp, who earned $50 million thanks to “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Tourist.” Adam Sandler ($40 million), Will Smith ($36 million) and Tom Hanks ($35 million) round out the top five.

Alba enjoys getting old

Jessica Alba says she’s thrilled about getting older, since her younger days were no picnic, she tells Hollyscoop. “I like who I am now,” Alba says. “I had so much bizarre inner turmoil, weird stuff in my head, questioning things, trying to find my way, navigate with acting and myself as a person, a woman.”
