The entertainment world received some exciting news this weekend as Beyonce welcomed her first child, Blue Ivy Carter. We caught up with fellow music icon Jennifer Lopez, who just heard the happy announcement, and the mother of two lavished her praise on the new mom.
"The best part of [Beyonce's] life is about to begin," said Lopez fondly. "I just wish her the best. I know she's going to love it and be a great mom."
Lopez was out and about this weekend, making the rounds at the FOX TCAs to promote a brand-new season of American Idol, which will air in a few weeks with a special two-night premiere on January 18 & 19.
Along with fellow judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, JLo battled the big rumor of the day, gossip that host Ryan Seacrest was on his way out. "Is he going somewhere?" asked JLo in confusion, which was followed up quickly by Randy with a concrete answer; "[Seacrest] ain't going no where."
Don't miss the new season of American Idol (with Ryan Seacrest) when it returns January 18 on FOX. Idol promises an exciting season to start 2012 with a special element they call the "performance challenge," which will take those who make it through to Hollywood, and put them face-to-face with the judges one last time before the top male and top female semifinalists are revealed.
