Christina Applegate's rep confirmed baby Sadie Grace LeNoble was born last Thursday in Los Angeles. Applegate, 39, and 41-year-old Dutch musician Martyn LeNoble became engaged last Valentine's Day.

Applegate, who is now cancer-free, had a double mastectomy in July 2008 and reconstructive surgery several months later.

In other baby news, Life & Style mag is reporting that Mariah Carey and hubby Nick Cannon are having a boy and girl. ``Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything gender-neutral because I didn't want to impose an identity on them too soon,'' Mariah told the mag. ``There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are, and rumors about them being two boys or two girls -- but nobody guessed this!''

As far as her cravings, Cannon told People.com his wife likes everything.

``Last night we had smothered pork chops, collard greens, red beans and rice and a pecan pie with homemade whipped cream.''

I QUIT

Halle Berry has turned down a film job to prepare for a custody battle over her daughter.

A rep for the Oscar-winning actress says Berry backed out of a role in New Year's Eve that was scheduled to shoot in New York this week ``due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter.''

Word is Katherine Heigl will fill in for Berry's absence in the star-studded flick starring Jon Bon Jovi and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Berry and her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, are involved in a ugly custody battle over daughter Nahla.

IN HER OPINION

Barbara Bush, daughter of Laura and George W. Bush, has publicly endorsed gay marriage. In a filmed message for The Human Rights Campaign she says, ``I am Barbara Bush, and I am a New Yorker for marriage equality.''

Bush, who lives in the Big Apple, also says, ``New York is about fairness and equality. And everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love.''

Her father, former President George W. Bush, pushed for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex unions. But Barbara Bush, 29, joins the daughters of other Republicans who opposed their dad's views.

Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, and Mary Cheney, the lesbian daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, are also supporters of same-sex marriage.

DATE SET

That was fast.

People.com reports that Kesley Grammer, 55, plans to wed girlfriend, Kayte Walsh, 29, at the end of February in New York.

The wedding plans are already in motion, and ``it's going to be beautiful,'' the source added.

Meanwhile, the Frasier star is not yet divorced from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer. The couple have a hearing set for Feb. 7 in which a judge will consider granting his request to be declared legally single again.
