The past 24 hours have been jam packed with celeb activity.
From running everyday errands to taking breaks while on the set, Hollywood has been busier than ever.
Russell Brand carried out his usual daily routine with a morning yoga class in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The funnyman carried in his favorite yoga mat and juice to get him through his favorite exercise regimen.
Sofia Vergara took a break while she was on set shooting her latest Diet Pepsi commercial in Los Angeles. The Modern Family star is starring in the brand’s Love Every Sip campaign, which is slated to begin later this year.
Mommy-to-be Jenna Dewan showed off her baby bump while grabbing some groceries in Beverly Hills Tuesday morning.
Channing Tatum‘s better half just returned from a couple’s vacation in St. Barths over the holidays. The two were undoubtedly on a babymoon getaway in preparation for the arrival of their first child in a few short months.
As the happy couple — who announced just before Christmas that Jenna was expecting their first child — laid out in the sun, the 32-year-old Playboy Club actress showed off her growing belly in a colorful bikini and equally-stylish sarong, while Channing got her a cold beverage and a magazine.
Channing, 32, even channeled his adventurous side by taking to the sea for a bit of snorkeling — and came out with a special surprise for his wife. As Jenna watched from the beach, her heartthrob husband emerged with a conch shell that they shared with one of the kids playing in the sand. But not before the Magic Mike star sweetly kissed his wife on their first trip as parents-to-be.
“They are both ecstatic — it is the perfect Christmas gift and it will make this year’s holidays very special,” an insider previously told Celebuzz.
And whether the husband and wife will be buying blue or pink onesies still remains to be seen.
“Jenna and Tatum don’t know if it is a boy or a girl yet and they’re still getting used to her being pregnant,” added the source. “But they are totally excited and they do not care about the sex of the baby just as long as he or she is fit and healthy.”
The happy couple originally met in 2006 on the set of Step Up before Channing popped the question in September 2008 while on vacation in Hawaii. They sealed their love by getting married on the grounds of Church Estates Vineyards in California in July 2009.

Since we’re in between holidays at the moment — Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, BTW! — you’ll bet that a majority of this week’s celebrity Twitter pictures are chock full of Santa hats, festive jammies and decorated trees. But we’re sure you won’t mind considering stars like Miley Cyrus, Jedward and Bella Thorne are the ones that took ‘em.
Zac Efronwas all sorts of dapper on a New York City movie set on Thursday. The 25-year-old is currently in town working on the romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating?, which centers around three Manhattan bachelors and the single life.
The film also stars Parenthood’s Michael B. Jordan and Efron’s Me and Orson Welles co-star Imogen Poots.
The couple made their baby announcement earlier this week, days after Dewan hit the VH1 Divas red carpet with a noticeable bump.
Elsewhere in Beverly Hills,Reese Witherspoon looked cute and trendy in a blue lace dress and black tights as she finished an appointment at a skin-care center.
It was recently revealed that Witherspoon, who welcomed her third child Tennesse James in September, was one of the reasons fellow Hollywood mom Megan Fox was able to conceal the birth of her son Noah for some time.
“[Reese] went into labor the day before I did, and all of the paparazzi followed her to Santa Monica,” Fox told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview.
“So when I went into labor, I went to Cedars [medical center] and nobody cared or knew I was there, and so I got in and out. I left the next day and nobody knew and it was a big secret for three weeks.”
Staying on the Hollywood moms topic, Busy Phillips, who recently announced that she’s pregnant with her second child, was spotted hard at work on the set of Cougar Town. Malin Akerman, who is expecting her first child, flaunted her growing baby bump in West Hollywood, where she finished up some last-minute Christmas shopping.

Though they were there to celebrate Hollywood’s leading men, the ladies stole the spotlight in the season’s hot red carpet hue at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
Stepping out at the star-studded event,Rihanna set pulses racing in a slinky scarlet spaghetti-strap dress, paired with matching red stilettos and lips. Fittingly, the “Diamonds” singer added a hint of sparkle to her red-hot look with a diamond necklace and hoops.
The skin-baring oufit wasn’t the only reason the pop star stood out at the Chateau Marmont shindig in Los Angeles, Calif., Wednesday night. Rihanna was the sole women to land a spot on GQ‘s annual list. Dubbed Obsession of the Year, a nude Rihanna covers the magazine’s December issue in nothing but a black leather biker jacket, cleverly covering her lady bits.
But Rihanna wasn’t the only splash of red at the swanky GQ fete. Jennie Garth, Brittany Snow and Jenna Dewan all raised temperatures in ruby dresses.
Garth’s curve-hugging peplum frock — with a down-the-center zipper — showed off her recently slimmed-down figure. Camel peep-toe pumps and red lips finished off her look.
Snow opted for a more glam style in a cardinal-colored floor-length gown, which she also paired with red lips. While Dewan stuck to a nude pout, she stunned in a draped low-cut dress and ankle-strap pumps, as she walked the red carpet with husband, Channing Tatum, who was honored as GQ‘s Movie Star of the Year — just hours before he was named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.

From 21 Jump Street, to Magic Mike and The Vow, Channing Tatum is in career best form.
Proving that, the 32-year-old has edged out of a cavalcade of big names — including Daniel Radcliffe, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson and Ryan Reynolds — to be named GQ ”Movie Star of the Year.”
The actor, best known for his roles in Step Up and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,told the magazine that he’s taken career advice given to him by “very successful, smart actors” in order to make it in Tinseltown.
“They were like, ‘Grind it. If you love it, grind it.’ I did… and a lot of people who didn’t grind it, it’s not that they’re not in a good place, but I’m in a better place,” Tatum told the December Men of the Year issue, which hits newsstands nationwide on Nov 20.
But not every one of Tatum’s roles has been an action star. He confessed his reasoning behind taking on his role in The Vow, which co-starred Rachel McAdams.
“I did The Vow because I really love being in love,” he said. Tatum married actress Jenna Dewan in July of 2009 on the grounds of Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu, Calif.
Channing Tatum recently traveled 600 miles from Youngstown, Penn., where he is filming Foxcatcher with Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo, to visit his wife of three years Jenna Dewan in Wilmington, North Carolina, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.
The happy couple, who met on the set of Step Up in 2006, ditched their celebrity status and enjoyed a private dinner together the local Olive Garden on Oct. 28.
And they only had eyes for each other.
“They were trying not to be noticed so they sat somewhere where they could be more private,” an employee at the restaurant told Celebuzz.
The eyewitness added while Tatum was looking to spend some quality time with his wife — who is filming the new TV series Witches of East End – he was more than courteous to his fans.
“He was really nice to everyone who recognized him.”
Earlier the same day, Tatum, 32, and Dewan, 31, joined a group of four friends for brunch at Boca Bay restaurant for a buffet-style meal, complete with eggs benedict, waffles and omelets, said server Lauren Green.
“They looked like they were having a great time,” she said, “and the other customers were so surprised to see them.”
The waiters were also a taken aback by the tip Tatum left.
“I saw the bill,” said Green, “He’s a very generous tipper!”
