The couple announced the news on Melissa's MySpace page. Their second son, Braydon Hart Wilkerson, was born at 3 PM. He weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces.

Brit's Sitcom Reviews Are In: Could Britney be headed for a new career as a sitcom star? "How I Met Your Mother" star, Josh Radnor, tells People, "It pains me to report that on the first day of the shoot, Britney knew her lines better than I knew mine. She's been great to work with." Brit even overcame first day jitters, according to source on the set, who told the mag, "She was a bit nervous, but didn't let it get to her… She really seemed to enjoy herself and feel comfortable." Sounds hardly "Chaotic"!
'90210' Lives: And speaking of a show that has Brit written all over it, time to dust off the tables at the Peach Pit! The CW network is developing a modern spin-off of the show that brought sideburns and shoulder-padded-suit-jackets-as-casual-ear to high school kids across America, The Hollywood Reporter reports. The creator of "Veronica Mars" is in talks to write the project. No word if Dylan or Donna or any of the other original characters will be back for the spin-off, but we'd sure love to see a rematch between Brenda and Kelly!
How Much Did Scarlett Fetch?: As reported here earlier this month, Scarlett Johansson auctioned herself off on eBay for the relief organization Oxfam. The auction closed with a winning bid of $40,100, Page Six reports. The lucky bidder, who lives in England, scored two tickets to the premier of "He’s Just Not That Into You," a limo to the premiere, and of course the chance to meet the actress! Frankly Scarlett, (we think) this man gives a damn!
