Rascal Flatts guitarist Joe Don Rooney and his wife Tiffany Fallon are expecting their third child. The country music star and the former Playboy model are preparing to welcome another baby to their brood.
The couple shares its excitement in a statement to People magazine, which reads: "We are so thrilled and feel so blessed to bring another little angel into our world.
"Jagger and Rocky are very excited too. They're going to make a great 'big brother-big sister duo' as the Rooney circus continues."
Rooney and Fallon, who wed in 2006, are already parents to son Jagger Donovan, five, and daughter Raquel Blue, three.
Teenager Lorde has jumped to the top of the U.S. pop charts a day after making her American TV debut. The New Zealand-based singer/songwriter's Royals has knocked Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball off the number one spot following her first TV spot in the U.S. on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (01Oct13).
At 16, she becomes the youngest solo artist to reach the Billboard Hot 100's top spot since Tiffany, who also was 16 when I Think We're Alone Now hit number one in 1987. Ironically, Lorde manages the feat on Tiffany's birthday.
It's another strong week for the ladies on the countdown - Katy Perry's Roar stands proud at two, while Cyrus' Wrecking Ball drops to three.
Drake's Hold On, We're Going Home rounds out the new top four. The hip-hop star ties pal Lil Wayne's record for the most Hot 100 chart hits in a week - he appears on 12 tracks on the countdown.
In the wake of the new Tonight Show host announcement, it seems like there's no hard feelings from Conan O'Brien. Well, not directed towards Jimmy Fallon, anyway. During the Wednesday night episode of his late night show Conan, which is spending a week on the road in Atlanta, O'Brien said that Fallon is "the perfect guy" for the job. Fallon will take over the series from Jay Leno in 2014.

O'Brien, who was given The Tonight Show back in 2009 only to have it unceremoniously returned to Leno less than a year later, said in full, "I want to congratulate Jimmy, that is a really fun gig ... It’s a fun gig and you know what? Jimmy is the perfect guy to do it; he’s going to do a fantastic job. So congratulations, Jimmy.”

All of the hosts directly involved in the late night war addressed the big news in their monologues. Unsurprisingly, Fallon had a sincere, grateful tone, Leno joked about awkwardness, and David Letterman... well, he went right for the jugular: "NBC, God bless 'em, announced the official date for Jay Leno's departure – no mention of his official date of return, however," he cracked.

While O'Brien may not have the warmest sentiments for Leno or NBC either (rubbing salt on the ongoing wound, he didn't get a mention in the network's announcement on Wednesday), his kind, supportive words for Fallon show what a class act he is. Plus, Coco still has his own show over on TBS until at least 2015.
