Edgar Cooper—"It was that or Edgar Elvis," jokes Melissa—"has my big ol' lips," she says, adding that "he looks just like my dad," his namesake, the late Edgar Rosenberg.

Having suffered a miscarriage last year, Melissa, who plans to return to her E! gig in January, says she feels "overwhelmed and overcome" by the arrival of her baby, nicknamed Coop. As for Coop's celebrity granny, who has been camping out at L.A.'s Hotel Bel-Air to be near her new grandson, "She has taken on the role of grandma with gusto," says Melissa. "She sings to him all the time." Confesses Joan: "I'm going to teach him the great scores. I spent all weekend singing him the entire score from Gypsy."
