Engaged: Comedian David Cross and actress Amber Tamblyn, reports People. The “Arrested Development” funnyman, 47, and the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star, 28, have been an item since 2009.

In other news...: French actor Gérard Depardieu was escorted off of a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin on Tuesday night after he allegedly relieved himself on the floor of the passenger cabin, AFP reports. The flight had been delayed and the crew told the Golden Globe-winning actor that he would have to wait until after takeoff to visit the facilities. Apparently, it couldn’t wait. According to witnesses, the actor, who appeared to be intoxicated, opted to do his business then and there, while the airplane taxied toward the runway. Commenting anonymously, Depardieu’s travel companions defended him — that claiming that he was trying make-do with an empty bottle and was not drunk. Depardieu was allowed to take the next flight to Dublin. Speaking to the press, airline reps tried to be discreet about the incident. “I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane,” a Paris spokeswoman for Air France-KLM, parent company of CityJet, told AFP. Online, however, they were more lighthearted about the matter. “We’d also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities,” CityJet tweeted on Wednesday.

Expecting: Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband, Daniel Westling, People reports. The princess, 34, and the former personal trainer, 37, tied the knot last summer following an eight-year courtship.

Born: A daughter to Kevin Federline and his girlfriend, volleyball player Victoria Prince, 28, on Monday, People reports. It’s the fifth kid for K-Fed, 33, who has become a bit of a baby-daddy all-star after siring two children with his ex-wife, Britney Spears, and, before that, two more with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson. They’re calling her Jordan Kay.

Moving on: Former Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley, who held the office for a record six consecutive terms before announcing his retirement last September (the job now belongs to former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel), is back in the legal world. In June, Daley joined up with the Chicago-based law firm Katten Muchin Rosenman, which also has offices in New York, London, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. In what capacity is he serving? He “advises clients,” explained a rep for the firm, noting that Daley is, “knowledgeable about a variety of subjects.”
