M.I.A. Gives Birth To A Baby Boy!
It’s a boy for M.I.A.! The “Paper Planes” songstress and fiancé Ben Brewer welcomed their first child, a son, on Wednesday, February 11th.
Announcing the birth on her MySpace, M.I.A. writes, “Sunday night I came home from the Grammys still in the mood to party — I coulda easily gone out but I went home instead — lucky I did! My early stage labor kicked in around 2 a.m. My baby was born Wednesday. He is healthy, fine, beautiful and the most amazing thing ever on this planet — of course I’m his mum!! Me and baby are putting our tour dates for 2010 together, making mix tapes and figuring out a way to break out of the hospital! My baby boy says hi!”
M.I.A. says her son has already added fuel to her fire as an artist.
“Having a baby is the most creative thing you can do. It makes you re-learn the world through a child’s eyes.”
The singer, 31, announced her pregnancy in October. On Sunday, February 8th, M.I.A. performed at the Grammys — on her due date! Now all eyes will be next Sunday’s Academy Awards to see if she will have bounced back in time to perform “O Saya,” her Oscar-nominated song from Slumdog Millionaire.

Angelina Creeped Out By Octuplet Mom
Sources close to the Tomb Raider star said the 33-year-old Suleman had written to Jolie praising her support of children. She is said to be irritated by Suleman - and particularly by rumours claiming the single mother had facial surgery to make her look more like her.
Friends of Suleman, who already had six children before giving birth to a further eight, said she had altered her appearance to look like Jolie - who herself has six children.
Suleman, who has been forced to go into hiding because of death threats since the octuplets birth, has denied having her lips plumped up and surgery on her nose.
Reports in the U.S. cited a source close to Jolie who said Suleman had sent her several letters praising her work on behalf of children's issues and gushing about how talented she was.

Britney Spears Popping Pills To Prepare Herself For Circus World Tour?
According to sources, Spears, 27, has been prescribed "nerve pills" to help her combat stress. Her tour starts in less than a month in New Orleans. Although Britney received good news recently - she'll be able to have her boys with her, while she's away - it appears as if this career comeback is too much for her.
The pop singer has been suffering "paralyzing panic attacks" as her tour dates approach. Those close to Spears are afraid she will "go AWOL" and are "keeping her medicated to calm her down."
An insider said, "It's scary. Her dad Jamie's calling all the shots for Brit - making sure qualified medical people know what they're doing, and trying to talk Brit down from one emotional meltdown after another.
"We know she's been prescribed Valium, plus the anti-anxiety pill Ativan. Mixed with Stattera for her ADHD, Topomax for migraines and Lithium for her bipolar disorder, it's a wonder Brit even knows who she is any more.
"There's no kidding around among her family. They've all stressed this is the last chance for Brit - make Circus a big success or be ready to hang it up and retire.
"Everyone around her is dreading a repeat of the January 2008 fiasco when she fell apart in public. Her CD's doing well, so pulling off this tour without losing her head means Britney Inc. is back in biz and making money."
Spears will make an estimated $130 million from her world tour. That's a lot of dough - no wonder her "handlers" want to keep her doped up!
If Britney requires that much medication to stay calm then there is no way she's ready for this "comeback." Seriously, I think she's had her run at success and it's time to focus on staying healthy - both physically and mentally. She needs to put her attention on Sean Preston and Jayden James and concentrate on being a good mother to those sweet boys. I say scrap the tour and leave the limelight!

Jerry O'Connell Compares Rebecca Romijn's Breastfeeding To 'Something Out Of Cirque du Soleil'
"I don't know why I'm getting nervous saying this," the proud – and jumpy – dad tells Ellen DeGeneres for Friday the 13th's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I'm not saying anything dirty, it's natural but [Rebecca] does what we call the double football – which is just incredible, because it's like three beings attached," he says.
"It's like something out of Cirque du Soleil. It's crazy." And there's more: "My wife also … I'm sure I can say this on television, it's a natural thing. My wife pumps, which is the machine you hook up [and] you have to put quarters in it … I'm kidding."
Only about the quarters. When it comes to the breast pump, "My wife is doing it and not complaining," says O'Connell. "My wife is the best. I love you, baby. He did concede, however, that Romijn finds the device "uncomfortable."
"It hurts," interjects DeGeneres – as O'Connell offers to try the pump himself. He, too, finds it uncomfortable. "No milk came out of mine," he observes, "just like hair in there. Then you got to boil everything and sterilize it. I'm crazy like that – I boil everything."

Mira Sorvino Pregnant With Baby #3
“We are overjoyed at the thought of welcoming a new addition to the family," Sorvino, 41, tells Us. "With each child, the love in our hearts has expanded beyond what we ever imagined was possible."
The actress -- who was named a Goodwill Ambassador to combat Human Trafficking by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime on Thursday -- and her husband of four years, Christopher Backus are already parents to Mattea Angel, 4, and Johnny Christopher King, 2.
The couple met a friend's charades party in August 2003. They first said "I Do" in a private civil ceremony at a Santa Barbara, Calif., courthouse, and then later in Capri, Italy.
"We spend all our time with our two kids," Sorvino told CNN last month. "They're our favorite people in the world. We don't spend a lot of time partying. We don't go out much. And we just love our children and we love each other. And we have a good life. You know, we're sort of normal people living in an abnormal place."
Sorvino won an Oscar for best supporting actress in 1995 for her role in Mighty Aphrodite. She most recently starred on NBC's The Last Templar with Backus, who has also appeared on The O.C and Will & Grace.

Usher's Wife Suffered Heart Attack Prior To Surgery
Foster, 37, checked into the Sao Rafael Hospital on Feb. 6 for a "simple liposuction," says Ellen Dastry, spokeswoman for plastic surgeon Silvio Sterman. Foster went into cardiac arrest while being anesthetized, "but was revived in less than a minute by heart massage," Dastry adds.

She's currently recovering in Sao Paulo's better-equipped Sirio-Libanes Hospital, added Dastry, who did not release any additional details.
Foster and Usher wed in August 2007. They are parents to two-month-old Naveid Ely Raymond and Usher Raymond V, 15 months. Foster also has three sons from a prior relationship.
Is Kate Moss Showing Off A Baby Bump?
Stepping out with her rocker boyfriend Jamie Hince, the couple enjoyed an intimate dinner with Topshop boss Sir Philip Green and his daughter Chloe.
Dressed up to the nines in the midnight-blue outfit, studded belt and leopard-print jacket, the 35-year-old model looked a picture of health - in stark contrast to her dishevelled public appearances of recent months.
Kate has been dropping hints for months that she is planning a brother or sister for Lila Grace, her seven-year-old daughter with ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack.
At Christmas it was reported that Kate had given her nanny Mary Davidson - who is the mother of her best pal Sadie Frost - a £2,000 bonus and told her to expect more work in the new year.
Kate and Jamie divide their time between her Cotswolds mansion and a £9million townhouse in St John's Wood, North London.
In recent weeks she is said to have stopped drinking and cut down on cigarettes.
Mother Of All Baby Bumps Shows Her Belly Days Before Giving Birth To Eight Babies
These extraordinary pictures show the 33-year-old Nadya Suleman baring her stomach eight days before having her brood.Smiling proudly, the mother-of-14 hoists her green patterned smock to show off her hugely distended stomach to the camera.
The photographs, which first went up on tmz.com, show the strain her body was under as she reached the end of her record-breaking pregnancy. Single mother Suleman, who already had six children by IVF, used a fertility doctor to give birth to her babies.
The new pictures surfaced on the day it emerged she had fled her house in Whittier, California, to go into hiding with her older children after receiving death threats. She has even taken on the services of a security firm to ensure the safety of her family.
Her publicist Michael Furtney said: 'There has been some really nasty stuff about wanting to physically harm Nadya, and outrageous statements about both her and her children. 'We have a security firm that we've been working with and they have certainly made contact with the police about the threats. I don't know where that will go, but we'll see'
Much of the anger surrounds the eight babies' conception by IVF.
Tori Spelling Speaks Out About Her Skinny Frame
"They scrutinize you so much. You try to be the person who says, 'Oh, I don't care,' but I feel the pressure," she told Usmagazine.com.
"You're out there; your picture is in every magazine. They're looking at you from every angle, no matter what you do," she added. "You have to be careful getting out of cars now because they shoot up your skirt. Everything has to look good, and of course, there's pressure to do so. I definitely feel it."
Spelling said losing her baby weight "was much easier the second time. I keep saying this, but it's true.
"I think the first time I was so stressed and knew I had to lose it. This time I did it with my family," added the star, who credited a healthy diet and jogging with helping her shed pounds. "I didn't do a super diet fad or a workout routine. I literally did everything with my kids and my husband. Before I knew it, [the weight] came off."
Spelling also said her first day on the set of CW's 90210. It was "scary," she said.
"I was so nervous and didn't know what it was going to be like, I was afraid I wouldn't remember how to play Donna [her character]. "But I got halfway through the first scene and was like, 'Oh, wow - there she is!'" added Spelling, whose multiple episodes begin airing Apr. 14. "She has been in me this whole time. She's been hiding in there for 8 years and never left."

Angie Harmon & Jason Sehorn's Family Is Complete
Initially planning to add one more baby to their family, bringing their total to four children, Angie shares that following the birth of her third daughter Emery Hope in December, she had a change of heart. “My new baby girl completes us. She really does,” says Angie. In fact, the proud mama is already looking forward to watching the bond her three daughters will share, comparing them to a well-known action trio!
“I’ve got three girls now and I’ve got lots of visions of them posing as Charlie’s Angels.”
The sisterly love is welcome news for the actress, who prior to the birth of her now 8-week-old baby girl had kept busy poring over sibling rivalry books. “I was ready for it,” she explains.
However, Emery joined the family without a hitch, says Angie, leaving the actress more than a little surprised. “I read all the research about it and I was totally prepared for everything, and they totally pulled the rug out from under me,” the 36-year-old shares, adding, “they love her.”

A-Rod Returns To Ex-Wife & Madonna Is Not Happy
"Madge is pissed!" reveals an insiderto the NY Post, after A-Rod headed home to Coral Gables, Fla., in the wake of his steroid-use scandal. "Alex ran right home to Cynthia, and to Madonna, this is the ultimate dis." According to a source, the Queen of Pop is mostly livid because A-Rod didn't come to her for solace.
"But Alex's handlers want to make sure he's as far from Madonna as possible," says the insider. "He has enough negative publicity as it is."
No stranger to the spotlight, the Material Girl has gotten her fair share of attention lately by squiring Brazilian model Jesus Luz around NYC. But insiders insist her dalliances with the 22-year-old Luz — who's featured wet and making out with Madge in W magazine's March issue — are just for publicity.
"Madonna and A-Rod have been burning up the phones," reports the insider, "and she keeps on insisting that Jesus is just a PR stunt. Alex says he understands, and now he's asking her to understand that salvaging his career is his priority."
The predicament has at least brought one upside to the slugger: Now that he's unable to focus all his attention on Madonna, she only wants him more. "Madge is totally making a play to get him back," confides our spy. "She feels like she's losing him, but Alex is only with Cynthia for comfort. Plus, he's afraid she'll talk!
"Meanwhile, Madonna just wishes he had come to her. She has been the subject of negative press her whole career, and she wants to help him understand that this too shall pass."
She may soon have the opportunity — the source says Her Madgesty is already making plans for a secret rendezvous. "She's so desperate to see Alex, she's plotting a way that they can sneak out to the Hamptons to work things out. She wants to have some alone time."

Victoria Beckham Totes Around A Posh New BBF
The fashionista made her way through Heathrow today in her trademark stilettos and sunglasses.But gone was the usual Hermes Birkin - a classic the fashionista owns in several colors. And it's place, the Loewe 'Calle'.
An overdressed Victoria, wearing a black tuxedo outfit and matching gloves, appears to have become particularly fond of the Ostrich-skin accessory. Sporting the handbag for the second time this year at an airport, Victoria obviously has more than a few essentials to pack into the larger-than-life bag.
Or perhaps, at a suggested retail price of $10,000 (£7,000) the designer feels that this is one purchase that should be used more than once. Either way, Posh's valuables are sure to be safeguarded against snoops and petty thieves, as the black bag also comes with a giant padlock.

British Oscar hopeful Kate Winslet has revealed she has been getting fashion tips from her eight-year-old daughter Mia Honey. The 33-year-old star of The Reader appeared as a guest on chat show The View and admitted her little girl is growing up to be quite the style guru.

Taken aback by the question, Winslet said she then quizzed her daughter from her first marriage to director Jim Threapleton, about what colours she should wear.
‘I said to her what colour do you think I should wear? And she said, “Pink, no not pink. Anyone over the age of 10 shouldn't wear pink!”’
She appeared to be taking her daughter’s advice to heart when she appeared on the show dressed in a grey fitted jacket – although it was over a black pair of trousers and shirt.
