When Kristen Stewart told the Associated Press last week that she and Robert Pattinson would “be fine,” maybe she knew more than she was letting on, as sources say the pair are secretly back together, according to Lainey Gossip. “It was communicated to people during the Toronto International Film Festival that they are [back together] but they’re worried about how it might affect [Rob's] career, like whether or not there will be some kind of crazy backlash or something,” the source says.

With her marriage to Ryan Reynolds last weekend on the books, Blake Lively apparently isn’t wasting any time getting their domestic life going. “I’ve always wanted a big family. Oh, I’d love 30 kids if I could,” Lively says in the latest issue of Allure. The “Gossip Girl” star also cops to living a pretty clean life free of drugs and alcohol — and nightclubs. “The music is so loud, you can’t have a conversation with somebody,” she says. “If I were an amazing dancer, yeah, I’d go, but I’m definitely not.

In news that may be surprising considering their recent public squabbling, estranged couple Heidi Klum and Seal are actually in an “OK place,” according to Klum. “I don’t know if we’re the greatest friends right now, especially because of the things that he said,” Klum tells Katie Couric during an interview for her new talk show. “We’re in an OK place.” Klum adds that the constant attention hasn’t made processing their breakup any easier: “It’s hard especially when you are in the public eye too. People are always looking at you closely and at everything you do. And they also don’t always see exactly how it really is,” she says. “I haven’t felt like correcting every rumor that is out there. I’m focusing on moving forward.”

“True Blood” stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer became parents twice over this week, according to Hollyscoop. “We can confirm that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer recently welcomed their twins into the world,” their rep announces. “The babies were born a few weeks early, but are in good health and both Mom and Dad are overjoyed.” The twins mark the first children for Paquin, while Moyer has two children from a previous marriage.

It looks like Randy Jackson won’t be bounced from the judges’ table on “American Idol” after reports leaked that he is close to signing a deal to keep him in his old spot on the hit reality competition show, according to Deadline. Rumors had circulated that Jackson, the only remaining judge from the original version of the show, would be moved to a “mentor” position for the new season. But it looks like that’s not happening.
