Claire Danes and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed their first child into the world earlier this week. Their son, Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy, was born on Monday and his arrival was confirmed to People magazine late Wednesday. So, does anyone hear the name Cyrus Dancy, and immediately want to sing it to the tune of Tina Turner’sPrivate Dancer”? “I’m your Cyrus Dancy, a Dancy for money ....” — seriously, is this a problem for anyone else? No? Just me? Anyway, the baby’s arrival is certainly happy news, which is refreshing since things for Danes’s character during the most recent episodes of “Homeland” were nothing but grim. (People)

More than 6,000 people packed L.A.’s Gibson Amphitheatre Wednesday during a public memorial for Jenni Rivera , the Mexican-American pop star who died in a plane crash on Dec. 9. Hundreds of fans also gathered outside during the event, to remember a woman they called, in honor of the title of one of her albums and songs, “La Gran Señora.” (L.A. Times; Associated Press)

Instagram has made a number of people angry due to its new terms of service agreement. But now the photo-sharing service has really done it: It’s ticked off Kim Kardashian . According to TMZ, the reality star may drop Instagram altogether because she’s concerned about the company’s new policies. And that should strike fear in the hearts of many. What, we’re supposed to live in a world where Kim K. can’t photograph herself and then disseminate that photo after casting it in the sepia hues of the Toaster filter? No, people, no. (TMZ)

Judd Apatow, producer of the first “Anchorman” movie, announced on Twitter Wednesday that “Anchorman 2” will arrive in theaters one year from Thursday: Dec. 20, 2013. So your pre-Christmas weekend plans for next year are all set. (E! Online)

One year from tomorrow Anchorman 2 will be in theaters!!It is kind of a big deal.

Very soon, it will be possible to drink an official bottle of “Game of Thrones” beer. The line of beverages, brought to you via a partnership between HBO and Brewery Ommegang and slated to roll out March 31, will kick off with Iron Throne, a blonde ale. I assume that’s a nod to Joffrey. (All We Can Eat)

Ben Affleck was supposed to star in a movie with Kristen Stewart, but now that’s no longer happening because Affleck has a scheduling conflict. The ‘ol “Ben Affleck is too busy” excuse — how many times have we all heard that one? (Gossip Cop)

Zac Efron and Marcia Gay Harden have signed on to join the cast of an upcoming movie set on the day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Billy Bob Thornton and Paul Giamatti are in it, too. (Vulture)

Then we came to the end: The last Celebritology discussion will take place Thursday at 2 p.m. No need to RSVP in advance. Just come as you are.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
