Carla Bruni is pregnant with twins, according to French magazine Voici. The 43-year-old singer/actress/model/French First Lady already has a nine-year-old son, Aurelian, from another relationship. Carla is allegedly due to have her first child/children by French President Nicolas Sarkozy in October. But Carla is being mum about any potential pregnancy. When asked in an interview on Monday if she is pregnant, the Telegraph claims Carla said:
“If you’ll allow me, I’d rather not answer these questions about my family. I’d love to talk to you woman to woman about my family life, my personal dreams – and I’m really a very chatty person. But on this subject, I’m going to keep quiet. Not through arrogance or because I like keeping secrets. I am remaining tight-lipped about that to protect something. I would really like to to talk about it, but then it would take over everything else. And besides, it also involves people, so I’m not answering.”
Sounds like a non-confirmation confirmation to me! Another magazine, VSD, claims a senior aide to President Sarkozy also confirmed her pregnancy in off-the-record remarks. Sarkozy’s communications officer refused to comment, saying “That is a subject that is none of my business.” I guess we’ll have to wait un petit peu longer for an official confirmation about a trés trés chic bébé.

Break out the cigars! Mariah Carey has finally given birth to her twins! Concluding what seems like the longest pregnancy in history, at least to me, Carey popped out first a baby girl and then a baby boy at around lunch today (EDT). Husband Nick Cannon was by her side during the delivery, which I hope was just like honey. Sorry, bad joke. According to reports, the new family of four listened to Carey’s “We Belong Together” after the children were born, which, personally, I think is amazing. Oh, and apparently they are renewing their wedding vows tomorrow. Seriously? Isn’t Mimi tired? Anyway, the twins’ names have not been released yet. Will keep you posted because I know you are dying to know. Congrats Mariah and Nick! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Another famous Kate has a wedding coming up: Kate Hudson is engaged! Kate announced this morning on “The Today Show” that she’s engaged to Matt Bellamy of Muse, by whom she is currently pregnant (and mush-brained). “Yes, I’m engaged,” Kate told Matt Lauer while promoting her new romantic comedy, “Something Borrowed.” “It just happened a week ago, I’m so glad you noticed. I haven’t really announced it and I felt like the announcing thing feels so silly, and I was just waiting for someone to notice.” Well, that’s one way to do it. Us common folk take out an announcement in the newspaper when we have an engagement, but I guess if you’re a celebrity, it’s easier to just announce it on a morning talk show. Anyway, congratulations, Kate Hudson! [Betty Confidential]

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are no longer “living in sin,” as my grandma would have said. On Friday night, the two got married, trading their vows—which we hope included the line, “I promise not to fall for my next Lifetime movie co-star”—in front of 40 guests in Malibu. LeAnn quickly took to the web to share her excitement. “Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes. We are blessed and…. I’m Mrs. Cibrian!!!!!” she wrote on Twitter. Later in the weekend, she typed, “Happy Easter Sunday my beautiful friends! Coffee… me the computer…. Eddie the Sunday newspaper…. waves crashing…. holding hands… nice way to start it. My first Easter as a WIFE!”
Which of course brought the obvious backlash. Keep reading »
Courteney Cox and David Arquette‘s relationship is confusing to us. It’s also apparently confusing to them—Courteney was not pleased when David hit on her during a platonic trip to Disneyland with their daughter. (Her response: “You don’t have the Fast Pass right now. Not to that ride!”) So the two did what any normal, conflicted pair would do—a joint session on Howard Stern‘s radio show yesterday. It of course quickly turned into a therapy session. Keep reading »
If you lived anywhere near my apartment building, you would have heard a dramatic scream of “Noooooooo!” circa 9 a.m. this morning. Why? Because I read that Leah Messer and Corey Simms of “Teen Mom 2“—aka the couple I dubbed the most inspiring on television—have split after just six months of marriage. Apparently, it was Leah who did the leaving, moving out of their family home after a series of fights over money. Yesterday, she was spotted at her local courthouse and a clerk confirmed that, while she hadn’t filed anything, she had picked up divorce or custody papers.
This news makes me very, very sad. Keep reading »
Two years after splitting from Royston Langdon, it appears that Liv Tyler has a new piece of arm candy. An especially sugary one, if you ask me. His name is Theo Wenner and he is rock royalty in his own special way—his dad is Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann Wenner. “They’ve been dating for a while now,” a source tells Life & Style. Which makes sense since they were photographed together at Paris Fashion Week in March, and then again this week strolling in New York.
So what else do we know about Theo? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
A week ago, when Mariah Carey appeared naked on the cover of Life & Style showing off her mondo pregnant-with-twins belly, she said, “I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience.” Hubby Nick Cannon revealed that he was having regrets about doing the photo shoot, too. “My children are going to have to see these pictures,” he said. “It’s a little weird. It’s a little nasty. I mean, have you ever seen your parents naked? When they get older and their friends come over they will see the pictures and say, ‘Your daddy’s butt naked.’” It seemed strange at the time, because the image showed Mariah solo, but now that I see this cover of OK! Magazine in the UK, I get it. It takes things to totally new heights with Nick standing behind Mariah, nuzzling her ear, and holding her bazangas. All I have to say is: No!

It’s still hard to believe that Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn are dating given their 24-year age difference (for the record: she is 26), but they seem to be going pretty strong. In this photo, they jog together. The two surprises: that they are joined by buddy Owen Wilson. And that Scarlett is totally rocking those ugly finger-toe shoes. Eeek! [PopSugar] Keep reading »
“I hope I’m a good husband. I always put the toilet seat down. I grew up with women, so I would get in big trouble if I didn’t put the toilet seat back down. It’s been ingrained in me.”
—Channing Tatum divulges the secret to keeping his relationship happy at a screening of HBO’s “Earth Made of Glass,” the documentary he produced alongside wife Jenna Dewan. Well, it’s no “argue naked,” but still good advice for men out there. [People] Keep reading »
