    Hey Girl, it's official: Ryan Gosling is over us. He has eyes for only one girl now -- and it's not Eva Mendes. The sexy star became a dad when girlfriend Eva Mendes gave birth to a daughter on Friday, September 12. We can just imagine how starry-eyed Gosling will be over his new baby girl.

    While we know that this is probably goodbye to "Hey Girl" forever, we think it's just the beginning of something even better ... "Hey Baby Girl." Because the only thing sexier than a hot guy is a hot dad.

    Here are all the things Baby Daddy Ryan Gosling will be saying to the new girl in his life. He's going to be such a great dad. And hell yeah, he's hot. Check out photo #5 -- and we love #10!

    At this point, it seems the rumors that George Clooney is engaged to Amal Alamuddin are no longer rumors. It's being reported far and wide and in the most credible of publications. So if you had dreams of someday snagging Mr. Clooney for yourself, we're sorry to say all bets are off (for now at least). 

    The "huge" ring Alamuddin wore while dining at Nobu with Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber is what first sparked the rumors. The same evening, Clooney and Alamuddin apparently ran into Ed Norton at the restaurant and told him they were engaged.

    Clooney's whirlwind romance with Amal Alamuddin has only been going on for 7 months so this might be the first time you're even hearing of her -- or at least paying attention.

    So who is Amal Alamuddin exactly -- and what's she got that you don't?

    Being a professional cheerleader is hard work -- you've got to train, eat right, travel, always be, uh ... cheerful. But being a cheerleader for the Buffalo Bills -- or a Jill as they're called -- is even harder.

    You've got to keep your vagina clean.

    (Not sure what that means exactly? Don't worry, we'll give you all the details below.)

    As a result of a lawsuit brought against the Buffalo Bills by five former Jills, certain documents have come to light, including the code of conduct Jills are expected to follow. Some of these rules make sense, such as the one about cheerleaders being allowed only a certain number of absences before they're let go.

    Others are, oh, a little more condescending: "Always say "excuse me" when you burp, sneeze or cough. Even if you think there isn't anyone around." And: "Make-up left in the creases of your skin creates early wrinkles."

    But still others (related to the aformentioned clean vagina) are downright ridiculous.

    Run, Amal, Run! He's right behind you!A lot of you ladies (and gents) out there will be disappointed to hear that George Clooney, self-declared eternal bachelor, is supposedly getting married!

    Scratch that.

    He's apparently engaged (still has to make it to the altar).

    People Magazine and Page Six are reporting that Hollywood heartthrob *cough* Clooney, 52,  is engaged to Amal Alamuddin, 36, the London lawyer who he has been dating for less than a year.

    More than 30,000 people showed up at the White House yesterday for the 2014 "Hop Into Healthy, Swing Into Shape" Easter Egg Roll, but 7 kid reporters (including my daughter) were lucky enough to have a more intimate meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama on the floor of the White House Library.
