Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis may have denied last week’s reports that they’ve become more than just friends, but their recent activities aren’t doing much to help that assertion. The two reportedly shared a weekend getaway up the California coast, according to People magazine. Witnesses spotted Kutcher and Kunis headed to Carpinteria, Calif., where they grabbed lunch and some fresh fruit Friday — and the didn’t surface again until Sunday morning. A source close to Kutcher says something like this has been in the cards since their “That 70s Show” days. “He was so in love with her for a while when they worked together,” says the source. “He thought she was a goddess, was always talking about how beautiful she is. But she was with Macaulay [Culkin] for a lot of that time and also just generally gave off a not interested vibe.”

Martin Lawrence and his wife, Shamicka, are calling it quits after 17 years of together, according to E! News. The “Big Momma’s House” star says in a statement that they made a “joint decision to go our separate ways.” Martin and Shamicka were an item for 15 years before finally tying the knot in 2010. “Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together,” Martin says.

Beyonce‘s beauty secret? Having a baby. “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” the singer tells People magazine, which named her the 2012 World’s Most Beautiful Woman. “I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.” Beyonce and husband Jay-Z welcomed daughter Blue Ivy Carter three months ago. “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy,” Beyonce adds. “The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”

Zac Efron has had his share of on-screen girlfriends, but there’s one that stands above the rest: Nicole Kidman, whom Efron connects with in “The Paperboy,” their upcoming film. “It was everything you dreamed of,” Efron tells Australia’s Daybreak. “She was such a lovely person. I pinched myself every day, especially after doing love scenes with Nicole Kidman. Nicole is so gorgeous.”

Jack Osbourne and his fiancée, Lisa Stelly, are the proud parents of a newborn baby girl, welcoming daughter Pearl on Tuesday, his rep confirms to People magazine. It’s the first grandchild for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, and Sharon previously announced her intentions of spoiling the new addition. “I’m going to be the grandmother from hell because I am going to spoil this baby so bad,” she told People earlier this year. “My son and Lisa are going to be like, ‘Get her out of here!’”

Justin Bieber is making the most of his paternity scandal last year. “[I've written] a song about that whole situation with that girl who said she’s having my baby — Mariah Yeater,” Bieber says, according to AOL, adding that the track is “about everything I’ve gone through.” Yeater claimed that she had a sexual encounter with Bieber at a concert in L.A. when she was 19 and the Canadian pop star was 16, leading to her pregnancy. Bieber later took a DNA test to disprove her claims.
