Busy Philipps Delivers Baby Girl

Photo by Steve Mack/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- It’s a girl, again, for Cougar Town star Busy Philipps.

The actress, already a mom to 4-year-old daughter Birdie Leigh, gave birth to her second daughter on July 2.

“So this happened …” Philipps, 34, tweeted Wednesday, along with a black-and-white photo of her holding the newborn.

Those were the same words that Philipps used to announce her pregnancy on Twitter in December, at that time posting a photo of her positive pregnancy test.

The former Dawson’s Creek star first revealed on the red carpet in April that she and husband Marc Silverstein were expecting another girl.

“We’ve known for a long time now. I just haven’t had any reason to say it, but we’re having another girl,” Philipps told the Huffington Post at the premiere of her film A Case of You.

The couple have not yet released a name for the new baby, who weighed in at 8.5 pounds.

At the same premiere in April where Philipps revealed the baby’s sex, she also revealed that the baby’s big sister, Birdie, was “super excited” about the news.

“She’s actually incredibly helpful and she’s 4 1/2, so she’s really understanding things. When I say, like,   ‘Mom can’t carry you right now because the baby in her tummy is pressing down on her bladder!’ She understands what that means and she’s cool with it,” the actress said.

“But we’ll see what happens when the actual baby comes,” Philipps added. “I’m planning for that moment, like, ‘And when does she go back?’ I know that will happen.”

'Cougar Town' Returns Tuesday Night 

Mike Coppola/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The third season of the Courteney Cox comedy Cougar Town premieres on ABC Tuesday night, after an extended hiatus. In the episode, Cox's character, Jules, becomes upset with Josh Hopkins' Grayson, her neighbor and love interest, when he calls her predictable.

Despite the friction between the two in the season premiere, Cox says the characters get along just fine. She says Jules, "can be this crazy, kooky girl, and he lets her do that, and he is just, keeps her grounded. I think they like that about each other, and they co-exist well." Cox and Hopkins were rumored to be romantically linked in real life last year -- something they again denied Tuesday on The View Tuesday morning.

Cougar Town airs at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Cox's 'Cougar Town' Co-Star Denies Romance Rumors

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Josh Hopkins, who plays Courteney Cox's boyfriend on Cougar Town, was surprised by the the rush of tabloid headlines about them caused by a simple day of sun and surf. The actor tells Access Hollywood he went to St. Barts with Cox and her daughter Coco, but pics of them frolicking at the beach didn't tell the full picture. "There were a lot of people with us," the actor explained, "but we're the only ones you see. They just [framed] us two, so it's a story. It's not true."

Hopkins admits to being flattered by the coverage about his co-star, however. "It's not like a terrible story to have out there," he says.  "I mean, she's really hot. But it's just not true."

Photo Courtesy - Disney/ABC Television Group(PASADENA, Calif.) -- ABC's schedule for the 2011-2012 season is already taking shape.  The network announced Monday that it has renewed Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Castle, Cougar Town, Private Practice and The Middle for another season.

The fate of Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters is a little less certain.

Speaking at a Television Critics Association panel in Pasadena, California on Monday, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee said, "Desperate Housewives is doing a great job, as you know.  We have ambitions to pick it up.  We are not quite there, ready to do so.  And Brothers & Sisters has gotten really good numbers this year...But we have not made decisions on them yet, and we are not necessarily ready for them, but we'll see as we go forward."

Also on Monday, ABC Family picked up Pretty Little Liars and The Secret Life of the American Teenager for the 2011-2012 season.

Photo Courtesy - Larry Busacca/Getty Images for InStyle(LOS ANGELES) -- Did another man come between Courteney Cox and David Arquette?  The 46-year-old actress is in love with her Cougar Town co-star, Brian Van Holt, a source tells

The insider says, "She is smitten and in love with this man, almost besotted...he seems to be providing something that David didn't during the marriage.  They've been secretly dating for some time and now the split with David is official, time will tell if the relationship may well get even more serious."

The insider added, "Courteney doesn't believe she was cheating on David because they had been leading separate lives for some time."  Arquette declared earlier this week that Van Holt and Cox had an "emotional affair."

Cox and Arquette announced earlier this week they were separating after 11 years of marriage.  Arquette then revealed on Howard Stern's radio show that he and Cox hadn't had sex in four months and that he slept with another woman after they separated.
