DREW BARRYMORE & WILL KOPELMAN ENGAGEMENT BLISS!
He’s just that into her! After less than a year of dating, Drew Barrymore‘s art-consultant boyfriend Will Kopelman, 34, put a ring on it during a holiday ski trip in Sun Valley, Idaho. And what a ring it is: The colorless, radiant-cut, nearly 4-carat diamond by Graff sits atop a diamond-covered band. Barrymore-who has been married twice (to British bar owner Jeremy Thomas in 1994 and comedian Tom Green in 2001) and was also engaged twice in her teens-has been linked to New Yorker Kopelman since last February. “He’s lovely,” Barrymore, 36, told IN STYLE of her fiance, an avid snowboarder and film buff, whose clients range from pals like actor Robert Pattinson and singer Ben Gibbard to Silicon Valley billionaires. “He’s very, very nice. It’s really positive. I’m superhappy.”

Beyoncé Knowles & JAY-Z BABY JOY!
She’s here. After weeks of rumors (fake baby names! bogus hospital check-ins!), Beyonce, 30, and Jay-Z, 42, welcomed Blue Ivy Carter Jan. 7 in New York City. Weighing 7 lbs., Blue had a natural birth that was “extremely peaceful,” the couple said in a statement. Dad is especially elated. “People haven’t seen him this happy or proud,” says a source. Lenox Hill Hospital denied reports Jay and B paid $1.3 million to rent out their own floor, and while the couple did have their own security detail, one patient caught a glimpse of the baby, telling Scoop, “She’s really beautiful.” Adds a friend: “They will love this little girl so much.”
‘GLORY’ JAY’S SONG FOR BLUE
The most beautifulest thing in this world
Is Daddy’s little girl …
Last time, the miscarriage was so tragic
We was afraid you disappeared
But naw, baby, you magic …
Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real
Baby, I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you.

ELIN NORDEGREN DEMO DETAILS
After razing the $12 million oceanfront North Palm Beach mansion Elin Nordegren, 32, bought last year, Tiger Woods‘ ex-wife is starting over. “The house wasn’t built to the South Florida wind-loading codes of today that were put in place because of hurricanes,” her builder, Dan Reedy of Onshore Construction and Development, tells PEOPLE. “It made more sense to tear [it] down.” Nordegren gave Habitat for Humanity four weeks to salvage tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of cabinets, hardware and fixtures. “We are so grateful to Elin,” says Habitat’s local director of deconstruction Bobbi Blodgett. “It’s rare we get this kind of donation.”
