The Reliable Source is on vacation and will return; until then, the Names and Faces column will appear in its space in Style.
Born: A son, to Monica Goodling, 38, and Michael Krempasky, 37, Thursday night at Inova Alexandria Hospital. Mom has a knack for chasing bad news with good: She’s the ex-senior counsel to Alberto Gonzales, the former attorney general, who lost her job and got hit with a congressional subpoena in 2007 over the controversial ouster of federal prosecutors. But those front-page stories prompted an old boyfriend to call, and several months later, she and Krempasky (founding RedState blogger, now with Edelman PR) were engaged. In March, the Virginia State Bar reprimanded bar member Goodling (now with Corallo Media Strategies) for an ethics violation (breaking civil service rules in hiring prosecutors based on ideology) . . . but by then, the couple were anticipating the arrival of their firstborn. Six pounds, 2 ounces. Named Michael Benjamin Krempasky, his parents are calling him by his middle name. We know this because Dad tweeted the labor and delivery.
Also born: A daughter, to Jeb Bush Jr., 27, and his wife, Sandra Algudady Bush in Miami early Saturday morning. Former Florida governor and proud first-time grandparent Jeb Bush Sr. broke the news to The Post’s Peter Wallsten and chuckled about the “very Ritz-Carlton-like” childbirth conditions: “They don’t hold the baby up by the legs anymore and spank ’em to get the gook out of the lungs.” Seven pounds, 9 ounces. They’re calling her Georgia Helena Walker Bush. She’s the first great-grandchild for patriarch and former president George H.W. Bush.
Married: Tara Reid, who eloped with boyfriend Zack Kehayov in Greece last weekend. “I just got engaged,” the actress, 35, announced, via her Twitter page, at noon Saturday. Ninety minutes later, Reid one-upped herself. “Greece married!” she tweeted. Reid’s rep was caught off guard by the shock-and-awe nuptials and mistakenly informed People magazine that the “American Pie” star had wed her ex-boyfriend, Danish businessman Michael Lilleund. Whoops! On Monday, Reid cleared up the confusion by tweeting Kehayov’s name to the rep. Not much info on the guy, but he looks an awful lot like the mystery beau Reid was spotted smooching in the District last month.
In other news . . .: Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri is facing up to 15 years behind bars after a standoff with police last month, reports TMZ. The vigorously goateed rocker, 39, was arrested July 12, after a fight with his girlfriend escalated into a stare-down with a SWAT team at his Los Angeles home. After Oliveri surrendered, police searched his residence, finding cocaine, methamphetamine and a loaded rifle. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office charged Oliveri on Aug. 3, handing him two counts of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor count of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer.
