Hey, janai. What's going on? Dan, I don't know if I can help you stay out of trouble because I've got questions too, but we will move on. It is time for "Pop news." And we start this morning with the big congratulations. Jesse Tyler Ferguson is now a father. The "Modern family" star announcing back in January that he and his husband were expecting their first child and throwing a star-studded baby shower in February, and now a rep confirming to "People" that the little one is here. In a statement saying Jesse and Justin welcome their little bundle of joy, Beckett mercer Ferguson Mikita on July 7, 2020, and the parents are overjoyed and excited for this journey as a family of three. So happy for the whole family. They are going to have their hands full. All right. Now the pandemic, of course, has brought Hollywood to a halt, but zendaya found a way to secretly film a movie simply by asking "Euphoria" creator Sam Levinson and seeing if it was possible. It turns out it was. Zendaya tweeting, the first still from the movie with the title "Malcom & Marie," you see it there, teaming up with John David Washington and "Malcom & Marie" is the first full feature length filmed in lockdown. It will echo Oscar winning story "Marriage story." They followed all safety precautions unions had in place like covid-19 testing, masks and casting crew quarantining for two weeks preproduction. They rehearsed six feet apart from each other and from June 17th to July 2nd, everyone stayed on location at the caterpillar house in California while filming. No word yet on a release date but obviously they took a lot of precautions to get that done. All right, so next Bob Ross' show "The joy of painting" is bringing new joy to a whole new generation of fans amidst the coronavirus pandemic. 25 years after his passing, Bob Ross' legacy is living on. His 30-season, 400-episode series is streaming on tube this month, famous, of course, for his very soothing voice, calm sayings and the ability to paint masterpieces in every episode. Bob Ross inc. President Joan Kowalski saying that with covid-19 lockdown, fans are, quote, watching like crazy and starting to paint because it's a thing you can do by yourself. People are stressed out and trying to figure out what to do while they're home. Just a recipe for Bob Ross right there. I've been thinking, you know, maybe I should get into painting. Yeah. I could use some Bob Ross in my life. One of his most famous sayings, I think was, it wasn't me. It was not. I don't think so. Not at all. Not even close. Wasn't he just recently a hometown trivia question? I think he was, yes. Bob Ross, yeah. So the paint something catching on. His hairdo is also catching on given the fact that most of us can't go to the barber. Oh, my gosh. I guess you're right, Dan. Janai is like, I can't help you, Dan. Not today. It would be worse if janai was here. I've still got questions. We will get to the bottom of those questions. Don't you worry. We'll have to pull him aside. Right? Moving on now to our cover
