Katie Lowes & Adam Shapiro Welcome First Child: Albee

Congratulations are in order for Katie Lowes and Adam Shapiro.

The Scandal star, 36, and the Sense8 actor welcomed their first child — son Albee Shapiro — she announced via Twitter Thursday.

“Baby’s first #Scandal live tweet! Adam and I are thrilled to welcome Albee Shapiro into our family! We’re happy & healthy!” the new mom captioned the first photo of her baby boy.

Last month, the actress opened up about her birth plan.

“I don’t have a birth plan yet, but we’ll be in a hospital,” Lowes shared. “I wanted a doula because it’s my first baby and I want to be able to call her when I’m going into labor so she can come over and help us go through the early stage. My husband and I are both actors; we’re obviously dramatic. So we want someone who is able to say, ‘This is normal. You’re okay; let’s do another lap around the house. Let’s bounce on a ball, let’s walk down the street.’ That way I won’t rush to the hospital too soon. Then, when I’m officially freaked out, we’ll head to the hospital. But she’ll be there as our advocate and as someone who has gone through this many more times than we have.”

In July, Lowes celebrated her baby shower at Au Fudge in Los Angeles, Calif.

In May, the actress announced her first pregnancy.

Congratulations to the Lowes-Shapiro family!

How To Get Away With Murder Star Katie Findlay Says the Show’s Sex Scenes “Really Feel Like…


It’s nothing against you, Alfred Enoch. But as your TV love interest, How To Get Away With Murder‘s Katie Findlay says getting naked in front of America is “never not weird.” Despite some awkwardness, Findlay and the rest of the Murder cast are handling the show’s risqué scenes like champs, helping Shonda Rhimes create a groundbreaking freshman series.

The spunky, down-to-earth actress gave VH1 a peak at the day in the life of Murder‘s Rebecca, and what it’s like not only being a part of Shondaland, but working with such a HOT cast. We’re talking to you, Alfred, Jack Falahee, and Matt McGorry. We may have even asked her to play a little round of Smash, Marry, Kill…

VH1: Congratulations on the show being such a huge success! How are you feeling about it all?

Thank you! I’m great! We sort of just hide away in our little studio and do our jobs and have a nice time together. We sort of forget, I think, that the rest of the world is seeing it, too. Day to day, it’s awfully quiet and then every once a while, we step out and realize how noisy it is out here. It’s a little bit of a moment.

When I interviewed Jack, he said that you guys really don’t know that much of what’s going to be happening in advance.

Yea that’s true.

Is not knowing how everything will unravel for your character difficult?

Sometimes! It really challenges your urge as an actor to always know exactly what’s going on. But when you think about it, people going through their lives aren’t internally prepared for every emotional situation they’re going to be in. I’ve started to just embrace it and play what’s in front of me and try to understand this goal, rather than understand every single second what’s going on, because in real life, she wouldn’t.

Do you feel like you identify with Rebecca?

I do in some ways. Something that was hard for me about playing Rebecca is [that] I see her as someone who has grown up without a support system, and I’m not like that. I have a wonderful family, and I can come crying to my mother and she’ll set me straight no matter what. I look at Rebecca as somebody who’s been disapproved of [for] so much her entire life [that] it started to form the fabric of who she actually is. Everything she does is just to make sure that she survives; it’s not out of selfishness or malice for other people. She just never had a reason to stop looking out for herself, and let someone else do it. It actually took a lot of work and a lot of putting myself in that place to figure that out about her. But I am really sarcastic and I do wear a lot of black…

How do you feel about the show’s sex scenes? Are you comfortable shooting them?

I’m a very awkward person generally, so I will admit to being really uncomfortable and anxious and nervous, and not wanting to do anything wrong or make anything weird. Alfie is a wonderful person. He’s a great guy so… actually if this is going down verbatim, just say that he’s terrible, just terrible! But no, he’s great and we work really well together, and it’s really not horrible when you’re [part of] a cast who understand each other. We all talk and we’re all friends. I mean, it is weird pretending to be naked in front of 20 people, while people instruct you on the proper way to, you know, mack on someone who you [just] had lunch with.

It’s really not romantic at all.

It really feels like work, and it’s actually quite funny a lot of the time, because all it takes is one little thing to shake the moment up and then you start laughing because you realize what you’re doing. You know, someone going, “No, no, don’t touch her that way! Kiss here so that we see more of your face!” And it’s just too funny and truly uncomfortable in my experience. Things get weird. Getting naked in front of what you then later realize is 9.3 million people is never not weird for me, personally.

Are you surprised with how much hype this show is getting in terms of all the sex?

I mean, I’m not really surprised because I know Shondaland. I know [its] shows get a lot of hype and attention and it’s always very community-involved and people like to get into it. People are more remarking on the fact there is gay sex and straight sex on the show that’s given the same amount of time and the same amount of normalcy. It’s just treated like two people wanting each other rather than a big deal, and I think that when you don’t see something very much, it is shocking and noteworthy when it finally comes down the pipes.

Do you feel like it was necessary for this to happen? It must be a cool feeling being a part of this because it’s almost a movement in a way.

It is! I’m happy to be on the show where all different kinds of people are allowed to love all different kinds of people. People are allowed to just look the way that they look — everyone on the show comes from somewhere different, has a different body, wants different things. You know, Viola [Davis] taking off her wig, and her makeup and just being this beautiful woman on screen, unadorned, was really amazing to watch. I think that it’s good to remind people that everyone is here and we’re all here together. If you’re out in the world, you should be able to look at the television and see someone who reminds you of you — someone that you can relate to, a situation you can relate to — and I think the scope of that has gotten smaller. I think that Murder is making a new path.

Katie Holmes Is the New Face of Olay! See Her First Photo Shoot

09/24/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

It’s been more than 10 years since Katie Holmes played a fresh-faced teen on Dawson’s Creek, but her skin hasn’t aged a day. Which is why we weren’t surprised to hear that she’s been tapped by Olay to be the brand’s newest spokeswoman. The actress shared a look at her photoshoot for the skincare line, as well as answered some of our pressing questions about her beauty routine and the craziest thing in her medicine cabinet.

First and foremost, Toledo, Ohio native loves Olay because “it’s an Ohio company, so it feels like home to be working with them,” she tells PEOPLE. “They really mean something to women. I remember buying Olay in high school because I wanted to look pretty.”

These days she strives to “feel beautiful on the inside and outside,” which she achieves with exercise, water and the brand’s Regenerist cream cleanser — though not every night, as she admits that going to sleep without washing her face is her one skincare weakness.

And while she says she never has done a wacky skincare treatment in her life, if you opened her medicine cabinet you might be surprised to find “a lot of Riccola cough drops for theater and they’re kind of old. They’re kind of like candy!” (Don’t say that too loudly around Suri!)

The star got glam for her ad with Serge Normant and his team, which you can see in the behind-the-scenes photo above. And while we had a feeling that a girl who answered “yum, more please” to the question “Baked, mashed or fried?” might be pretty fun to hang out with on set, the photos of her goofing off seem to confirm that.

Are you excited for this new partnership? Loving the photos?
