Today in juicy celebrity news: Ryan Gosling fans were duped into thinking he'd adopted a late friend's baby, Ciara introduces the world to her newborn son, Jennifer Lopez goes without makeup, and more...

No Baby for the Gos
There are plenty of real stories of love, loss, and happiness floating around Facebook at any given time, but that one you liked over the weekend about Ryan Gosling nearly adopting a late friend's son is totally, completely a hoax. Sorry, guys.

The fake Facebook page posted a picture of him holding a baby and with it came this post: “This father's day, I've decided to tell the story of how I became a father,” the post began. “This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad. His mom and I were great friends before she passed away from cancer. I promised her, I'd always look after him. So, I had decided to step up and become his dad. He brought me so much joy. He was my everything. 1 year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won. That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love.”

While the message is sweet, there's absolutely no truth to it — despite the 930,000+ people who liked the post. The Facebook page also linked to a site to purchase a T-shirt for $22.50 to benefit the Orphanage Home Foundation, a charity that doesn't actually exist. So far, Gosling's camp hasn't commented.

So, what have we learned here? First, Ryan Gosling is still awesome, even though he's not a dad (and never has been). Second, don't get so caught up in your love for the Gos that you get scammed.

This is What John Legend Wants on Date Night
Date night at John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's house doesn't necessarily mean dining out on the town. Instead, the swimsuit model whips up amazingly delicious grub at home. She told Us Weekly that she's "obsessed" with cooking and knows the way to her man's heart (through his stomach).

"He loves osso buco. Men love meat, and John loves my recipe—it's very spicy," Teigen said. "I also make lamb a lot. He's easily impressed."

Looks like this Oscar-winning star and her husband have a new baby, of the four-legged variety. The couple was spotted out with a furry friend in NYC this weekend. So far, no word on the dog's name, but the pup sure is cute.

Hathaway and hubby Adam Shulman are already parents to chocolate lab Esmeralda.

Deryck Drops His Ex-Wife's Last Name
It's been nearly four years since Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley and Avril Lavigne divorced, but he just got his ex's last name officially removed from his moniker. After submitting legal documents in November, a judge finally took "Lavigne" out of his name recently, confirms TMZ.

She Woke Up Like This
Jennifer Lopez probably doesn't sleep in bikini, but she did just show the Internet how she looks without makeup. “#realface #trueselfie #iwokeuplikethis,” she wrote with her swimsuit selfie. Pretty impressive for 44, no?
