– Kris Jenner says her daughter Kim Kardashian is thrilled to have a new baby. Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend, Kanye West, are keeping silent in the wake of multiple reports that Kardashian gave birth to a daughter over the weekend — about a month premature.

But Jenner told E! at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday that Kim is “extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby and she’s doing great and she’s beautiful.” Kardashian’s sister Khloe appeared to have let a rather cryptic cat out of the bag on Twitter.

“I cannot even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love,” she tweeted Sunday. She quickly followed with a second tweet: “More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now.”

Jenner linked to both tweets on her Twitter account, then wished West a happy Father’s Day.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, West said he doesn’t like talking about his family or the arrival of his child. “Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”

Drake adds Target Center to fall tour

Grammy-winning rapper/hip-hop performer Drake is bringing his fall arena concert tour to Minneapolis in October, promoters announced Monday. The date is Oct. 5 for the Target Center show, with tickets (prices yet to be determined) going on sale at 10 a.m., on June 28 through all of the usual Ticketmaster and LiveNation.com outlets. The tour begins Sept. 25, in Portland, Ore., working its way east across Drake’s native Canada. The recording artist is scheduled to release his latest album, “Nothing Was the Same,” later this year. Drake’s 12 No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart are the most of any performer. Joining Drake on the tour are R&B performer Miguel and rapper Future.

return to stand-up: Dave Chappelle is making his most substantial return to stand-up comedy with a one-month tour for Funny Or Die. The comedian will headline the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, which kicks off Aug. 23 in Austin, Texas. The 13-date, two-stage tour concludes Sept. 22 in Phoenix. The 39-year-old Chappelle has occasionally performed impromptu sets in comedy clubs. But he has largely avoided comedy and public life since abruptly leaving his hit Comedy Central series, “Chappelle’s Show,” in 2005.
