The horrendous Dec. 4 news cycle better known as Pop Culture Doomsday was one Ellen prank shy of an honorary celebrity mom: Alison Sweeney, the Biggest Loser host who finally came around late Monday.

People reports that Sweeney delivered Megan Hope Sanov a few minutes before midnight; apparently mother and child are doing fine, and neither new job losses, bad remakes, Rinna/Hamlin reality shows nor apocalyptic walrus-saxing have ensued in the hours since, so we think we're OK. As you were, Ms. Sweeney, and all our best. For real this time.
