ABC/Todd Wawrychuk(LOS ANGELES) — Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray just announced their engagement, but the groom-to-be is already thinking about starting a family.

Dorfman? Not so much.

“We’re waiting a little while, though he doesn’t want to wait,” she told ABC News. “I was like, ‘When you can afford my push presents!’”

Meanwhile, Murray, said that he’s ready for “a whole team of kids” and is “ready to start poppin’ ‘em out.”

“[But] she’s the boss when it comes to this stuff,” he said, adding hopefully, they’ll have four children. “We want a big family. We love kids.”

First thing’s first, however. Dorfman said that she and Murray are already starting to think about their wedding, which they hope will take place in the spring. Expect to see some of Murray’s former competition from The Bachelorette on the guest list, they said, along with great food and solid entertainment.

“The vibe we would want is just fun,” she added, before turning to her fiance. “I’ll let you come to the tastings… unless you want to come pick out colors and everything?”

Clearly, they’re already on the same page, because Murray didn’t miss a beat.

“I’m gonna pass on that!” he said.

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — Last year Zac Efron quietly checked into rehab, though he didn’t specify why. Now he’s opening up a bit about the experience.

“The challenging part was never the work. That was never it,” he told Bear Grylls in a clip for the show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls. “It was sort of the in-between work.”

Efron, 26, who said in April that he now attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, explained that as an actor, he felt pressure everywhere he went because of the constant glare of the press. Calling it a “confusing” situation, he said he needed a “social lubricant” to be social and eventually, to go anywhere at all.

“It was getting to the point where I was caring less about the work and waiting more for the weekend,” he said. “I couldn’t wait to go out and sort of let loose and have fun, but then when Monday and Tuesday were difficult to get through, then I was like, ‘This is bad.’”

Now sober, Efron said that he doesn’t ever want to rely on an artificial substance to feel comfortable again. Now, he meditates as often as possible in an attempt to calm his mind.

“You don’t realize when you’re out here, when we’re in it, but I haven’t thought about one thing today apart from what [we're] doing,” he noted of being outdoors with Grylls. “I think that’s one of the most beautiful things about nature.”

Syfy(NEW YORK) — The shark storm is back! Sharknado 2: The Second One premieres Wednesday night on the Syfy channel.

Ian Ziering starred in last year’s smash cult hit and returns for the sequel because as viewers remember, he chainsawed his way out of a shark.

In Sharknado 2: The Second One, the man-eaters invade New York City.

Ziering tells ABC News Radio he doesn’t think expectations are higher this time. “I think people are expecting the same amount of enjoyment,” Ziering says, adding, “This is still low budget filmmaking. It’s still going to be fun to see somebody running through the background that you noticed getting his legs chewed off in the scene before. I mean, that’s part of the fun.”

Ziering describes Sharknado as “campy sci-fi low budget independent filmmaking.”

Sharknado 2: The Second One also stars Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Judah Friedlander, Robert Klein, and former Taxi star Judd Hirsch as a taxi driver. Kelly Osbourne makes an appearance as a flight attendant, and Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Kelly Ripa also have cameos.

Syfy is so confident that Sharknado 2 will do well, it has already ordered a third installment that will premiere next summer.

Sharknado 2: The Second One airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for J/P Haitian Relief Organization(NEW YORK) — Although Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced earlier this year that they were splitting after 10 years of marriage, the couple reportedly just can’t stop hanging out with each other.

According to People magazine, the “estranged” couple was spotted together in New York’s East Hampton on Monday night to attend a screening of Hector And The Search For Happiness. The two were joined by Paltrow’s mother, actress Blythe Danner, and family friend Simon Pegg, who starred in the film and is also godfather to Martin and Paltrow’s daughter Apple.

“They seemed so comfortable with each other,” said a person at the screening. “It was like they were still married.”

“I don’t know what’s going on with them,” another person at the screening said, “but they seem really happy.”

This isn’t the first time the two have been spotted having a good time together. The Coldplay frontman and Paltrow were reportedly seen being “lovey-dovey and playful” at Robert Downey Jr.’s 49th birthday party in April.

In June, they were spotted having a friendly meal with their children at a restaurant on the Malibu Pier in California. Not to mention, an E! News source claims the two are still living together in their Brentwood, California home.

Martin and Paltrow married in December of 2003 and announced last March they were “consciously uncoupling.” Along with a daughter Apple, they have a son named Moses.
