"The Insider"'s Kevin Frazier sat down and talked to brand new father Nick Cannon via satellite to talk about fatherhood and how his twin babies are doing.
Cannon notes that the babies are still in the hospital, because they were born premature, but he says that they are doing very well. According to Cannon, there's "no more tubes, they're moving, they're eating by themselves" and they’re doing "amazing." He says that the kids may be coming home as soon as Sunday.
Kevin presented Cannon with a gift of two Nap Nannies in order to help his new kids sleep easily.
When he's not busy tending to his two newborns with wife Mariah Carey, Nick is busy working on his new cable TV show on Showtime called "Mr. Showtime."

"When I was asked to do this, I thought I would never want to do this with somebody I've never met," said Baldwin, a loyal Yankees fan. "I did this because I wanted to do it with [Krasinski]."
The two actors developed a bond while working on the 2009 movie 'It's Complicated,' but that didn't stop them from razzing each other about their sports affiliations.
Krasinski, a Red Sox fan, described the lengths that Boston devotees go to celebrate their team's big wins, saying they relish victories by "wearing a flag, body paint, pyrotechnics [and] usually 3,000 people in the street cheering."
Baldwin commented that since a Yankees win is "expected," he usually celebrates casually with a "cup of herbal tea."
"My favorite Yankee moment was when I went to the Yankee game with Lorne Michaels and Paul McCartney, because they brought us our food so fast," said Baldwin, who joked that the tickets cost "about $10,000 a piece."
Krasinski revealed that his most cherished Red Sox moment was seeing himself on the "front page of the Sports section of the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe holding up a sign that said, 'What curse?'" during one of the team's playoff runs.
The new commercial begins airing Friday, May 13, just in time for Game 1 in the Yankees/Red Sox second series of 2011. Click the video to see how Baldwin works in a put-down while talking about his "favorite" movie.

Huntington-Whiteley was attending a party Wednesday night in Hollywood for Maxim's Hot 100 list, which she tops at No. 1.
The Victoria's Secret model and actress said she didn't have much time to prepare for the 'Transformers' role after being cast. "I had like two weeks to get in shape and to get my head around the fact that I was even in the movie. But it was an intense shoot, it was seven months, a lot of running in heels." 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' is set to hit theaters July 1.
Producer/director Michael Bay said Huntington-Whiteley was chosen for the role despite a worldwide casting search. "We cast around the world, from France to Australia, Canada, America. And I worked with her on a Victoria's Secret commercial several years before, and we spoke, and I just remembered her personality. I sent her an email and said: 'Would you be interested in something like this?' And she goes, 'No.' And I said, 'Just try it out.'"

Bristol Palin recently fessed up to a corrective procedure done on her jaw that had many speculating she had cosmetic surgery, and in light of the recent speculation, we asked fellow "Dancing with the Stars" alumnus and reality show co-star, Kyle Massey, what he thought about Bristol's new look.
Massey says he keeps in touch with Bristol "every now and then," however he hadn't heard anything about the plastic surgery rumors. As it turns out, we were the first to show him the "before" and "after" pictures, and he confessed that he "didn't see the difference" between the two, and thinks "she looks the same" in the photos.
As for whether or not Bristol's mother Sarah Palin would make an appearance, Kyle says he "wouldn't rule it out."
The two have an upcoming reality series featuring Bristol Palin, Kyle Massey, and his brother Chris, for a reality show following the controversial single mom as she works at a small charity. The show will be on the BIO Channel, and BIO has already ordered ten half hour episodes of the currently untitled documentary series.

Back on May 12, 1998, Matt Damon and Edward Norton were competing in the World Series of Poker tournament right before the opening of their new film, 'Rounders.'
In the film, Damon plays a former gambler who now attends law school, but must return to the world of high stakes underground poker to help his friend, played by Norton, pay off loan sharks.
While Damon says he had experience playing poker with friends before filming 'Rounders,' he said that those games were much different than the tournament. "It's a totally different thing than this tournament," Damon said. "This is a lot more serious. The home game I used to play, people would feel guilty if someone lost too much money."

The "Entourage" boys are back...for their eighth and final season, and our Brooke Anderson was there to get the scoop on the end of the series, and the beginnings of a possible big-screen franchise. "It's sad. Yeah, I am going to miss it. It's been fun," says Mr. Johnny Drama himself, Kevin Dillon. "I am going to miss the guys, the fun we've had on set." Those sentiments ring true for Kevin Connolly as well, "I am crying. Can you see me crying? I am teared up because this is terrible."
Through the eight seasons of the HBO show, many guest celebrities have come on lampooning their celeb personas and for the final season, "Entourage" has brought on comedian Andrew Dice Clay for a multi-episode arc as a co-star of Johnny Drama's (Dillon) animated series "Johnny's Bananas." The Diceman has been a fan, "I've been watching since the very beginning...I nearly did it the first season," he continues, "when the deal came in to do as much as I am doing I said, 'I can't even believe this.'" Andrew's son, Max, will also make an appearance on the show playing himself.
Though the show may be coming to a close, everyone is feeling confident that a movie isn't far behind. Kevin Connolly puts it best, "I am usually pretty pessimistic, but I am optimistic that we're going to do a movie." And what can we expect from a big-screen "Entourage?" "The bar has to be raised. The movie has to be better than an episode of the show. It's got to be the show on steroids." Kevin Dillon is equally confident, "There has been so much talk about it. I think it's probably going to happen...It will be 'Entourage' but bigger."
We'll have to wait and see if "Entourage" moves from the living room to theaters, but if so, based on what we're hearing, it will be huge.
ET caught up with Angelina Jolie and Jack Black at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival in France, as the two promoted their highly anticipated animated film 'Kung Fu Panda 2', out May 26.
Angelina shares that her six kids were a big factor in why she decided to do the sequel to the highly successful 'Kung Fu Panda', particularly her two daughters Shiloh, 4, and Zahara, 6.
"My kids love the first one so it was easy to say yes and try it another time," Angelina says about deciding to reprise her role as South China panda "Tigress". "The kids love kung fu. Two of my children are from Asia so they're very proud of the film in general. But my girls also really like having a tough girl. It's not about being a tough girl, but Tigress just happens to be quite a strong woman so they like her dolls and they like her...it just makes me that much more confident and [makes me] want to do it."
She also shares that she hopes her children will one day become writers, instead of following in the footsteps of their superstar parents. When asked if her children are already showing signs of wanting to be in the business, she says, "I don't think so yet, no...but it could just be wishful thinking." "I think I'm trying to encourage some writers if that makes any sense. Adventurers and writers is what I'm going for...but I'll probably end up with six actors," she smiles.
Check out the video to see more of our interview with Angelina at Cannes.
'Puss in Boots' co-stars Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek took Cannes by storm Wednesday, arriving on the water in a giant, 22-foot-high pair of black boots.
Flamenco dancers dressed in black set the scene on the red carpet, and then Antonio and Salma emerged from the boots to greet hundreds of fans, curious onlookers and the press.
"The interesting thing about 'Shrek,' and I think following in the tradition of 'Shrek' with 'Puss in Boots,' is that we make movies that not only are appealing for very young audiences, but to the [parents]," says Antonio, who voices the title character. "I think it's important to wink an eye at the parents too."
"Of course, Antonio made it extra attractive because I love working with him so much," says Salma, who plays the street-savvy Kitty Softpaws. "I have a child now, so I was very tickled by the idea of me being in one of those movies that she watches thousands of times. … It's very exciting to get rid of your body and just work with your voice."
The 3D animated 'Shrek' spinoff, which follows the infamous sword-wielding cat before he met Shrek in a plot to steal the famed goose that lays the golden eggs, struts into theaters and IMAX November 4.
TheInsider.com sits down with family attorney Robert Brandt to sort out the possibilities of a divorce between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver and explore whether the pair signed a prenuptial agreement before their storybook wedding in 1986.
"It could be massive if there is a divorce," Brandt said. "We are talking about a world famous actor who was making $20 million a movie before he became governor. We are talking about someone who is in the Kennedy family -- one of the most famous, wealthy families in the world. A case like this, if they don't work it out, could involve tremendous sums of money. We could be talking about upwards of a billion dollars in net worth."
"Under California law, all community property has to be equally divided. So if we are talking about a billion dollars in acquisitions -- from the date of marriage to the date of separation -- each one of them is going to end up with half a billion dollars, absolutely," Brandt said.
The attorney at the Feinberg, Mindel, Brandt & Klein law firm in Los Angeles said that while it has not been disclosed whether the famous couple signed a prenuptial agreement, he's sure they evaluated this carefully before the marriage. "I would have to think that considering she was from the Kennedy clan, and he had already done many, many movies and was extremely successful -- and he was an actor -- they certainly had to have thought about a prenuptial agreement."
