Claudia Schiffer, who recently welcomed a baby girl, has chosen a name for her bundle of joy. Schiffer and hubby, director Matthew Vaughn, have named their baby girl. Their name? Cosima Violet.
Interesting choice. What are your thoughts? Cosima Violet joins Clementine, 5, and Caspar, 7.
Maybe Matthew should change his name to something of the Christopher, Cody, or Calvin variety. (We want him to fit in!)
And the winner goes to Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough!
Nicole and Derek really nailed their Tango and jive - resulting in perfect scores of 30 from the judges. Evan and Anna finished second with Erin and Maksim coming in third place.
Bruno labeled Nicole and Derek the 'crown jewels of the best season of DWTS.' Carrie Ann commented, "You set this place on fire." While Goodman said "There can be only one winner," and "It has to be you."
The judges were obviously not surprised by the results - do you think they deserved to win?
What an amazing season - we will miss...

She wrote an apology letter to the school. "I am mortified by my mistake and can only hope the purity of my motive, to find a way to connect with the graduates and encourage them to...
South Carolina Representative Nikki Haley denies allegations of an affair with conservative blogger, Will Folks. Nikki claims that these allegations were made in an effort to derail her campaign for governor, especially considering the suspicious timing of the Folks' allegation - less than a week after a poll revealed that she is the leading candidate.
"Several years ago, prior to my marriage, I had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki," wrote Folks on his blog. Nikki claims she has always been faithful to her husband of 13 years.
Sarah Palin is on Nikki's...
Although it probably wont match her clubbing outfits, Lindsey Lohan has been ordered by the court to wear an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet. The bracelet keeps track of the wearer's alcohol consumption by measuring body sweat. The judge was probably already pissed because Lohan extended her Cannes stay (due to a "missing passport") and failed to appear at a mandatory hearing five days earlier. Lindsey must also attend a weekly alcohol education course in Los Angeles, which means she probably wont be traveling much for the time being.
So what happened to the cute tween from "The...
