Justin Bieber and dad Jeremy have the same tattoo!

We've seen Justin Bieber's new tattoo before, but this photo (tweeted by dad Jeremy) shows us what it'll look like 20 years from now. Jeremy and Justin both got a tattoo that says 'Yeshua' (the Hebrew word for Jesus) and the tattoos are in the exact same spot as well! It's too cute that Justin and his dad are so close!

Justin Bieber takes Selena Gomez out for dinner. To Hooters!

Justin Bieber took Selena Gomez out for dinner. Recently, he has been quoted as saying, that you need to "treat a woman right," however, he ended up taking Selena out for a romantic dinner at... Hooters?! A chain that advertises staring at scantily clad young ladies. Selena didn't seem to mind though. The couple played concerts on the same day, July 24th, in Burbank, California. Of course, they made the most out of the time they could spend with each other. A fan blog posted this photo of the couple, enjoying their dinner and conversation.

Are Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger getting married?

Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger
Nicole Scherzinger's father, Alfonso Valiente, has said that his daughter and her boyfriend of 4-years, Lewis Hamilton, are engaged.

The 26-year old Formula-1 racer proposed to his 32-year old singer & Pussycat Doll. Alfonso said, "You know about the proposal? Yes they are engaged." He also said that, "My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down-to-earth," and "He is sincere and he and my daughter seem genuinely happy together. Lewis is a really good guy. When they came to visit, we hired them a Jeep because he had never driven one before."

Lewis and Nicole met at the 2007 European Music Awards in Munich.

Confusingly, Lewis's spokesperson has denied that the couple got engaged.

Ivanka Trump is about to pop. However, the 30-year old Celebrity Apprentice judge managed to step out last Thursday evening, only one day before her due date! She told reporters at the Snow Flower and the Secret Fan screening, that she's "trying not to think about" the delivery.

"My breathing exercises are going to come in the form of screams and panic," Ivanka jokes. "I have enough anxiety about the type of mother I’m going to be and the nuances of being a parent. [Therefore] I haven’t focused too much on the actual delivery part, which is seriously terrifying," she adds.

Any day now Ivanka and Jared's daughter will arrive.

Chris Colfer found out he was leaving Glee via Twitter!

Chris Colfer has mixed feelings about leaving Glee after next season. He says that he found out about his character's [Kurt Hummel] graduation on Twitter! He says to Access Hollywood, "I didn't necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year, I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can't be there forever."

So how does he feel about leaving the show? "I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon, but I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end." It seems like a far cry from co-creator Ryan Murphy's statement, "We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that [it] was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top."

Chris is definitely leaving whilst on top. He just received an Emmy nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy. Chris says, "As a performer, I feel so fulfilled. It’s just a huge category. It’s Best Actor in a Comedy, and we all know that Kurt’s not funny, so I’m very, very happy to be a part of it."

Lastly, Chris adresses the rumours that there will be a Glee spin-off for his character, "I've only heard rumors, I’m not attached to anything officially. So, we’ll see where that goes."

Weston Cage and Nikki Williams are back together after violent row

Nikki Williams and Weston Cage after their festive dinner in West Hollywood
Nicolas Cage's son Weston and his wife Nikki Williams are not splitting up after all. Last month they got into a pretty heated fight, so heated that it got violent and the police ended up arresting them both. Weston ended up being taken away with a bleeding arm, because Nikki allegedly hit him with a broken glass bottle.

Weston Cage after his arrest
When Weston was released on bail - a raison de $50,000 - he said to reporters, "don't ever get married". He also tweeted, "Made my choice, getting divorced," and "Never hit my wife. why would i start abusing after she was positive after taking a pregnant-c test."

Nikki, who only recently revealed that she's pregnant, says, "Weston and I did get physical with one another and he did not hit me in the face. We may be passionate, but we are not crazy." She also says, "I did drink the night before the arrest. I suppose my hormones got the best of me. That was the only occasion I consumed alcohol since I found out that I'm pregnant and I really regret my decision to do so." The couple had only gotten back from rehab days - for alcohol addiction - days earlier. The Daily Mail suggests that Nikki drinking alcohol could have been what started the fight.
The couple has now decided to put the past behind them. Nikki says, "We are not pressing charges against each other and we are working through our issues." Weston has written several Facebook messages about getting back together with Nikki. A poetical/cryptical one, saying "If you tried to calculate the measure of adoration i hold for my wife, you would realize that it belittles regular
Weston's bleeding arm
love and shortly after numbers would resign from the threads of formulaic creation that they are bound too, they'd just crumble." A second, very clear message, "I bet my life the my love for Nikki could conquer anything," and a third, "I'M SORRY ABOUT THE PAST 3 MONTHS LETS CONTINUE WHAT WE STARTED."

The couple definitely seems to have continued what they started, stepping out together for a celebratory dinner with Weston's mother, Christina Fulton. Weston seems to have celebrated their reunion with a new haircut. He has shaven off his long, black gothic mane and is now... bald. He says it's because clumps of hair started falling out due to alopecia, although he wrote a more bad-ass reason for shaving his head on Facebook, last Monday, "My hair is gone now because like Hades and my Father both...My head catches on fire when I'm angry......Greek god of darkness and the Ghost rider raised me well. I can take care of myself...."

No word on how the couple is working through their issues - therapy, mediator, screaming sessions - or when their baby is due.

Sharon Osbourne's stolen wedding ring has been found

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's house was burgled in 2004, when the couple was at home. Ozzy even struggled with the burglar, but he was able to take off with his loot: jewellery, including a 24 carat ring Sharon got when she had overcome cancer and her $332,500/£200,000/227.400 wedding ring. However, now, thanks to the tv show Crime Watch, Sharon will get her ring back!

The Daily Mail writes that South Yorkshire police appealed to the programme in order to get information on a £1 million haul of stolen jewellery. Crime Watch presenter Kirsty Young said of Sharon's ring, "let's just talk about this little beauty here - quite a bobby dazzler. If you recognise that incredible ten-carat ring or anything else, call the studio now." After the show Ozzy and Sharon's daughter Kelly was sent a link to the ring via Twitter. Kelly later tweeted, "Thank you crime watch my mum is over the moon thats her wedding ring she cried with joy because she can get it back! Thank you!"

Sharon's wedding ring
At the time, Sharon said of losing her 18 carat, white gold, diamond encrusted Tiffany wedding band, "My wedding ring, I had to wait 25 years so Ozzy could buy me that ring. It was a ten-carat round diamond from Tiffany to replace the one he'd bought me from H. Samuel, when we first met, when we didn't have two pennies to rub together."

None of the items that were stolen in 2004 were insured. Sharon and Ozzy offered £100.000 for its return, but to no avail.

David Gallagher joins the Vampire Diares cast

David Gallagher ©Michael Tran/FilmMagic  
Can you still see little Simon Camden in him? David Gallagher is well-known for his role in 7th Heaven and you'd probably still imagine him to be a sweet little boy. Little boys do grow up, and most recently the 26-year old has played in the science-fiction movie Super 8.

Super 8 was also the reason, according to US Weekly,  that David was contacted by the CW network. CW hasn't officially confirmed it yet, but David will appear in the first two episodes of the third season of Vampire Diaries. He'll play Ray Sutton, a werewolf, who'll encounter Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in Tennessee.

The third season of Vampire Diaries will start September 15th.

Jake Gyllenhaal has just come back from Iceland for Man vs. Wild, but he keeps finding action, wherever he goes.

The actor, 30, joined his End of Watch colleague Michael Pena for a police ride-along in Los Angeles, in preparation for their roles in the cop drama.

Wednesday night the two actor rode along with police escort Sgt. Tammy Bowen, when they witnessed the aftermath of what has been described as a gang shooting at Van Ness Park in the 5700 block of South 2nd Avenue.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena on the set of End of Watch
LAPD officials have stated that the victim was shot in the lip and arm and has been treated for non-life threatening injuries. The victim remains unidentified, but it was said that he/she refused to cooperate with the authorities. As of yet, no suspects have been identified. The LAPD officials added that it wasn't the first time that Jake had been on a police ride-along.

Several Glee stars will leave after next season

Cory Monteith
Come next season some of our favourite members of the world's most famous Glee club will be leaving. Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith won't be returning for the fourth season. Their characters Rachel Berry, Kurt Hummel and Finn Hudson will graduate high school and leave glee club New Directions.

Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that "we made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that [it] was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top." Ryan has said that more students will be graduating high school, their identities will be revealed at the season 3 Glee premiere, September 20th. 

Lea Michele
The only one that Ryan hasn't talked to is Cory, but he doesn't worry about that talk, saying "he knows he was a sophomore when the show started."

Chris Colfer
The reason why some cast members are leaving is due to the integrity of the show. "You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not bein realistic," Ryan said to The Hollywood Reporter, "or you can be really true to life and say, when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year."

Should we worry about the careers of these break-out stars?

The Kardashian empire grows: cooperation with Nicole by OPI

Kim, Khloe & Kourtney Kardashian.
They have their own DASH boutiques and jewelry collections and are the faces of everything from liquor to (oh sweet irony) diet products and sport shoes. The Kardashians are true entrepeneurs and grabbed the opportunity to cooperate with Nicole by OPI, when it presented itself. Khloe and Kourtney have co-designed a nail polish line that consists of 14 colours, aptly named Kardashian Kolors. The two sisters presented the line last Monday in New York. Completely in line with the witty names that all OPI nail polishes have, the sisters came up with cute names like 'Kim-pletely In Love' and 'Sealed With a Kris' - in honour of their mom Kris Jenner. 

The Executive VP and Artistic Director of Nicole by OPI, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, said that "we are so excited to work with everyone's favourite tv family - the Kardashians - to share a diverse collection of fashion-forward shades." Unfortunately, not everyone is as enthusiastic about the collaboration as Weiss-Fischmann, OPI fans have left messages on the OPI Facebook page saying, "not a fan of the Kardashian brand and I have always regarded OPI as a higher end brand," and, "using the Kardashian name almost cheapens it, but to each his own." Ouch, that hurts...

Delta Goodrem meets the entire Jonas family!

Nick Jonas and Delta Goodrem as they leave the restaurant.
Nick Jonas and Delta Goodrem's relationship has been taken to the next level. The Jonas brother, 18, took his Australian girlfriend, 26, to his mom's birthday party! Denise Jonas celebrated her birthday at LA restaurant Villa Blanca.

As seen on the photo, the couple left the restaurant hand in hand, and Delta had a red rose in her hand. Delta is a huge star in Australia and has plans to try and crack the American market as well. The couple was first linked to each other in May, after Delta and Brian McFadden broke off their seven-year relationship, and have spent time together on holiday in Bali.

Gisele Bündchen's line for C&A revealed.

Behind the scenes: Gisele Bündchen for C&A   © C&A
Supermodel and Victoria's Angel, Gisele Bündchen has launched her second line for C&A. The company has shops in Europe and Gisele's native, Brazil. The won't-break-the-bank line is designed by Gisele herself and is inspired by her own lifestyle. There are some more formal pieces, but the main focus is on casual wear.

Gisele blogged about the collaboration, writing "C&A invited me to create a collection that has my signature personal style. It was really cool being involved in the design side of the fashion business. It is more fun to be a part of the process and not just a model. My goal with the collection is for it to look fashionable and be super comfy." I'm sure that her line will be a huge hit!

Widespread criticism on David & Victoria Beckhams name choice.

David and Victoria Beckham.
Her name has caused people to think that she was born at 'half past seven', but there are many, many more reactions to the name of the newest Beckham in town: Harper Seven. The Telegraph has even dedicated an entire article on Tweets about the newborn's name.

There are several theories regarding the origin of the name Harper, guesses go from novelists to Harper's Bazaar magazine, @Martin_Carr tweeted "are we assuming that's after Harper Lee? [the writer of To Kill A Mockingbird] Seems a bit literary for them..." Whereas @sarah_robbo tweeted "erm, I usually like weird celeb' baby names, but HARPER SEVEN? Literally Harpers Bizarre?!"

Some people think that the name is cute and quirky, with @ladysov tweeting, "I actually think the beckhams daughters name "harper seven" is kinda cool." Others come with societal criticism, @camillalong tweeted, "doesn't Posh know the Harper Seven were a group of climate change activists jailed for bombing a juice bar in San Francisco?"

In my opinion, Harper isn't that unusual anymore. To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic and has become a must-read for students. Seven isn't unique either, Erykah Badu and Andre 3000's son is named Seven Sirius. That people hear it as 'half past seven' is quite amusing. Let me put it this way, I'm just happy that they didn't name her Jermajesty.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Burberry Body ad revealed

Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey has revealed that new face - and body - of the new fragrance 'Body' is no-one else than the lovely Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The campaign is centred around a stunning photo of Rosie, who is photographed in nothing but a strategically placed Burberry trenchcoat.

Christopher Bailey is known for handpicking up-and-coming British stars to feature in Burberry ad campaigns. He says about Victoria's Angel and Transformers: Dark of the Moon star Rosie, "Rosie's effortless style and her staggering beauty made her the natural choice as the first Burberry Body."

In turn, Rosie says, "it's a huge honour to be working with Burberry again, a brand that put my career on the map and helped launch me. To be asked to be the first 'Burberry Body' is an amazing compliment."

Sarah Jessica Parker and Halston Heritage part ways.

A year and a half ago Sarah Jessica Parker was made president and chief creative officer of Halston Heritage, how very Sex and the City! However, the actress and the sister label of the Halston brand have parted ways. Neither the label, nor SJP has commented on the split. Although it could very well be because of financial trouble. The Halston label was founded by Roy Halston Frowick in the 1960's, but it has recently been suggested that the label is in financial trouble and that an investment bank has been hired in order to obtain more funds.

Victoria's Angels cycle for charity.

Five gorgeous Victoria's Secret models, the so-called Victoria's Angels, exercised at the SoulCycle cycling studios in Tribeca, New York, on Tuesday. Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Erin Heatherton, Lindsay Ellingson, and Lily Aldridge - Mrs. Kings of Leon/Mrs.Caleb Followill - all traded their wings in for lycra pants and cycle for the Victoria's Secret Supermodel Cycle. All benefits of the cycle will go to cancer charity Pelotonia.

After the cycle Candice - the new face of Tom Ford's autumn/winter 2011 campaign - tweeted, "@soulcycle was amazing!!!!I'm so full of life and so happy to be healthy. No matter how bad your day might have been be thankful.bunsofsteel". Alessandra tweeted as well, saying "it was so much fun!!! RT @VictoriasSecret: It's a cardio fund-raising par-tay in here! #SupermodelCycle".

Money was raised by selling tickets to come watch the cycle. Tickets cost from $1000 to $2500. Whilst at the cycle prizes could be bid on, all the while the Angels were cycling for their lives.

Bethenny Frankel to be a mom x2?

Jason Hoppy and Bethenny Frankel with Bryn Casey.
Reality star and Skinnygirl entrepeneur Bethenny Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy are talking about adding to their brood. The couple's 14-month old daughter Bryn Casey is the main inspiration of the baby talk. Bethenny says, "someone said to me,'You will never regret having another one, but you may regret not having another one,' so that’s weighing heavily on me." However, Bethenny's age does make the couple careful, "there’s anxiety because of my age to be honest, but I don’t want to make choices based on fear. You never want to make a fear-based decision like, 'Oh my God, I’m 40, we have to have a kid now.'"

The couple is talking about another baby, but not actively trying. Guess that only time will tell what they (and mother nature) have decided on.

Sarah Jessica Parker on aging and juggling her career and her family life.

Vogue shoot: Sarah Jessica Parker with Tabitha and Loretta.    © Mario Testino
Sarah Jessica Parker graces the cover of the annual Age Issue of Vogue. In the article the actress, 46, talks about getting older, balancing her career and her family life, and Sex and the City.

In her day-to-day life SJP is married to Matthew Broderick and mom to son James Wilkie, 8, and twins Tabitha and Loretta, 2. SJP's life could not differ more from that of her Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw. SJP says, "Bradshaw’s life is nothing—nothing—like mine. I loved playing her, and it changed my life in lots of wonderful ways, but I’m not a crazy shoe lady, I don’t think about fashion all day long, although I have a great respect for the industry." Her role as Kate in her upcoming movie I Don't Know How She Does It was far more relatable, "every choice we’ve made has been different, but with Kate I really understood the attempt at a life."

As a cover model of the annual Age Issue, it will come as no surprise that SJP also talked about getting older. She told Vogue, "I kept thinking that this age was the one to be worried about. Like probably for the last five, six years I kept thinking, Oh, this is that age that I’ve heard about; this is that bad age where the work slows down. I assumed that at this point in my life I would be feeling frustrated, left behind, or marginalized, playing parts I was reluctant to. But I’ve been so busy, I’m not so sure that I see this fallow period yet. I’m not saying it’s not coming and that it won’t hit me like a ton of bricks, but I do find work that I’m excited about and interested in with people that I want to work with."

Vogue shoot: Sarah Jessica Parker with James Wilkie (far right) and two of his friends.  © Mario Testino
SJP is still in demand as an actress, despite the (supposed?) lack of roles for 40+ actresses. Life as a working mom means lots and lots of thinking ahead, this has caused SJP to describe her life as "a ship avoiding icebergs". She explains, "the internal lists, the children’s doctor’s appointments, the letters to write, the school projects. . . ." The "strategic planning" that a family requires leads her to say, "what you have to do and how to get the kids from A to B, and whatever is required of you at your work. And maybe you can toss in friendships that need to be attended to. . . . The thing that’s most surprising to me is how much we do in a day." SJP adds to that, "We don't have any live-in help. We're pretty hands-on parents.That's something that's important to both of us, and we don't shirk it, because what's the point in having a family if you're not going to really participate in it, you know?"

There's one thing about aging that worries her, "honestly, the only thing that I'm concerned about is the energy: I hope I can maintain the energy." She thinks of her twin girls in particular, saying, "I think about all the years I've spent parenting James Wilkie and everything I put into it, and there are two of them."

Teen Mom: Amber Portwood's daughter Leah gets her own Twitter account.

Amber & Gary's daughter Leah.  ©
Little Leah is only two years old, but her dad Gary Shirley thought it was a fun idea to give the toddler her own Twitter account. Gary thought that it would be a good way for Teen Mom fans to keep up to date regarding everything Leah-related. She could share photos and keep in contact with fans.

His plan has most certainly come with a lot of criticism attached, as many followers said that it would expose Leah to 'the evils of internet'. One person tweeted, "no one would make a #twitter for their child. You’re just asking for drama and attention." Another, more serious comment read "its not safe with all these creeps around for a baby to have a twitter weather she’s using it or not in my opinion."

Gary was quick to reply and defend himself. He tweeted, "You guys, it should be obvious that Leah has no contact w Twitter. This is just a fun concept that will in no way affect Leah herself." He continued, "I protect my daughter. This is for her sayings, things she’s doing, ect.. its all me tweeting…."

No word on what Amber thinks of all this. Could it be that baby's first Twitter account will become just as popular as baby's first Facebook page?

Jessica Alba about her post-baby body.

Jessica Alba.
Jessica Alba is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but even beautiful women like Jessica have their insecurities. Jessica, 30, is pregnant with her second child. In the August issue of the American Allure she says that after she gave birth to her first child, daughter Honor Marie, she didn't manage to shed all the baby weight. She puts it as boldly as "I can’t ever get down to the weight I was before I had Honor. My body’s just different. The jeans just sort of zip up differently, and things hang differently. It’s a miracle what happens, but you definitely are different afterward. Unless you're Gisele [Bündchen]."

Now that she's a mother, she has found that the experience of being pregnant and giving birth has had an unexpected upside: it has helped her got more in touch with her own sexuality. Jessica says, "I was quite shy with it [sexuality]. It wasn’t something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life.” She continues, "There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable — because it all leads to reproduction.There’s a science behind it all. It’s not just to sell whatever you’re selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie.”

A downside of her pregnancy? The constant attention from press and paparazzi for her changing body. "My publicist said the other day, ‘You can’t just be going to the grocery store - you have to be ‘flaunting your baby bump,’” she says. “You’re pregnant. Your stomach is not going to be flat. You’re not ‘flaunting’ it; you’re just walking to the store or across a parking lot."

 Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren expect their baby to arrive in September. It is unknown whether they're having a boy or a girl. Although there is a possibility to big sister Honor already told the paparazzi the name and gender of the expected bundle of joy.

Carla Bruni shows her growing baby bump at the beach

Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni, and her baby bump, at the beach.
Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni haven't confirmed their pregnancy. However, this photo speaks louder than words. The couple is on holiday at Fort de Brégançon and on Sunday Carla showed off her growing baby bump in a bikini.

Carla is about 5 1/2 months pregnant. Her father-in-law Pal Sarkozy has said that "I'm certain it will be a girl, and beautiful like Carla." The 43-year old model and presidents wife is already mom to 10-year old son Aurélien. The French president is a father to Pierre, 26, Jean, 25, and Louis, 14.

Miranda Kerr on giving birth, "I thought that I was going to die."

Miranda Kerr.
In this month's issue of the Australian InStyle Miranda Kerr talks about her labour. Turns out that giving birth to son Flynn wasn't an easy task.

The supermodel and Victoria's Angel chose to go without pain medication, but wasn't prepared for the pain of giving birth. "I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body, I was looking down on myself - the pain was so intense. I kept thinking, 'How do women do this?' But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined."

No word on whether or not this will keep the 28-year old and her husband, Orlando Bloom, from having more biological children in the future, or if she'll consider pain medication for a future pregnancy and birth.

David and Victoria Beckham welcome a little girl.

David and Victoria Beckham.
The girl that everyone knows and expects to become a future fashionista has finally arrived.

David and Victoria Beckham welcomed a daughter into their family this Sunday morning at 7:55 a.m. in Los Angeles at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Already parents to three boys, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8 1/2, and Cruz, 6 1/2, the couple were surprised to be welcoming a girl. The couple announced that they were expecting a girl in March, David then said "Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon."

Baby girl Beckham weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz./3400 grams. Her name hasn't been made public yet.

Congrats to the Beckham family!

UPDATE: The British DailyMail reports that the newest Beckham has been named Harper Seven. David Beckham updated his Facebook status. It reads "I am so proud and exited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham. She weighed a healthy 7lbs 10oz and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA. Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister xx"

The DailyMail quotes a friend of the Beckhams with regards to their name choice, "Harper is an old English name, something Victoria has always liked. Seven is a very lucky number and the baby was born just after 7am, in the seventh month." Sports fans will also immediately notice that number 7 was David's jersey number  for Manchester United and the English national team.

The DailyMail also reports that little Harper was born via a Caesarean section, just like her older brothers. Also, the girl reportedly is the spitting image of mum Victoria, when she was a baby.

R&B singer Monica (Arnold) and former Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown have tied the knot. Again. Yesterday the couple had a large ceremony for family and friends. Their first wedding ceremony was a secret one, it took place last November at their house.

This time the couple went all out. They were married at Vibiana, a renovated 19th century cathedral in downtown Los Angeles. A few hundred guests, among whom Lala Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony, Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant, were present to see Monica walk down the aisle in a Stephan Roland wedding gown. During the 30-minute ceremony the couple exchanged Christian vows.

Their three sons were driven to the ceremony in a horse and carriage. Monica has two sons from her previous engagement to Rodney "Rocko" Hill: Rodney Jr, 6, and Romelo, 3. Shannon's son from a previous relationship is mostly referred to as 'fatman', but I hope that he was referred to by his real name yesterday.

Afterwards the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a three-course sit down dinner. The dinner tables were decorated with centerpieces of hydrangea and roses. The reception had a purple and blue theme and guests had been asked to dress in different shades of blue as well.

The newlyweds had a whirlwind romance, meeting last summer - when Shannon played Monica's love interest in the video of 'Love All Over Me' - getting engaged in October, and married in November.

UPDATE: US Weekly has the scoop on Monica and Shannon's wedding. They manage to tell us that a 40-piece gospel choir sung to the couple and that the menu consisted of short ribs, Fatburgers, and a lemon horse-and-carriage cake.

Monica's custom-made Stephane Rolland wedding dress
Most importantly: they have a photo of the dress! Monica walked down the aisle in a custom-made, haute couture Stephane Rolland wedding gown. The fitted, ivory mermaid dressed, was corsetted and had a graphic waves train embroidered with crystal falls. It was made out of gazar and satin organza. To complete the look, Monica wore Joel Rosenberg jewels, that are worth $1 million USD.

Monica said to US Weekly, "other than when my kids were born it was the best day of my life!"

He had flown to New York, where Renate had a photo shoot, and lured her away to dinner and to Times Square, where he had the marriage proposal displayed on a big screen. Renate immediately said yes.

The couple were initially set to marry last year, July 17th, 2010, but the wedding was postponed because Renate was pregnant with their second son, Benjamin James.

Crazy Celebrity Baby Names Part 2.

I think it's time for another wacky celebrity baby name post. This post is for everyone who thinks that 'different' celebrity names are a thing of the past couple of years. I'm here to tell you: it's not. Therefore I'm presenting you with the case of Jermaine Jackson, older brother of Michael Jackson and former Jackson 5 member. Currently he's been married for the fourth time, and he has seven children with three women (he has no children with his current wife). This post I'd like to focus my attention on the name of his youngest child.

Jermaine La Jaune Jackson has two sons with Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza. Jafaar Jeremiah was born in 1996, and even though I keep wanting to sing songs from Aladdin, I can imagine that you'd like the name. In 2000 their youngest son was born: Jermajesty Jermaine.

Jermaine Jackson with Jafaar and Jermajesty.
I must confess that I don't like 'royal' names at all, Jafaar and Jermajesty's cousins names Prince Michael and Prince Michael II also don't float my boat, and neither do Princess or King. However, in my opinion, Jermajesty is just wacky.  I just don't get how you can go from Your Majesty to Jermajesty. At least, that's where I assume that it comes from. However, I'd like to give the parents props for not using any random capitalisation (really, JerMajesty would have been worse), or random apostrophes (Jer'majesty, or - oh horror - Jer'Majesty..).

It could be that the 'Jer'-spelling was made up to keep the name in line with the names of his other siblings: Jermaine La Jaune Jr. (1977 - he goes by Jay), Jaimy Jackson (1980), Jeremy (1986), Jourdynn (1989 - an early example of youneek spelling) and Jafaar Jeremiah, making Autumn Joy (1978) the only one without a J-name.

I don't want to bash Jermajesty, because he looks like a supercute little fella. However, I most certainly hope that it doesn't become mainstream.

Jewel: it's sad that men don't get to be pregnant.

Jewel and Ty Murray.
Jewel is ready to give birth to her baby boy any day now. Of course, she and husband Ty Murray are looking forward to meeting their son. However, she luckily doesn't have any hang-ups about the pregnancy aftermath and is not planning to take part in the newest Hollywood trend of losing the baby weight as fast as possible.

The musician and Platinum Hit host, 37, says "I'm feeling really great and enjoying pregnancy much more than I thought I would. I didn't know what to expect, every woman is different and you hear such horror stories. However, I also heard that you should try to enjoy it, so I took that to heart and not to fret about weight gain or anything else." Regarding the weight gain, she adds "Well, you're supposed to gain up to 35 pounds, and now I’m at 30 weeks and I’ve gained 30 pounds,” she explains during the interview, conducted in May. “The first several months I hardly gained anything, then it happened fast. I don’t know how I could control that – I have a healthy diet, I don’t eat sugar. I think your body has its own wisdom and as long as you are doing the best you can, you just have to find a balance."

Jewel isn't planning on following any specific diet, when her son has arrived. However, she's planning on breastfeeding, and she hopes that she'll be one of those moms that burn many more calories that way. "As far as losing the weight, I’m hoping that breastfeeding does the job, but I won’t be neurotic about it, about working out right away,” she says. “I am capable of that but I’m going to cut myself lots of slack. I want to give myself time to rest and heal and tend to my new baby for a month or so, and then I will definitely get back into a workout routine."

Jewel and Ty believe in breastfeeding. "We plan on [doing] it. I was ranch-raised and believe in it because I’ve seen what it does for animals." Don't expect Jewel to judge non-breastfeeders though "I don’t have any judgment about it, and I don’t think it should be contentious — I see great moms both ways. It’s amazing how intolerant the discussions on the Internet can be."

Her key message? "Knowledge really is power. The more you can educate yourself, the better. Your body and your health are your responsibility. I love doctors, but I have to live with the decisions I make. Make sure you get your questions answered, and never feel that you are doubting your doctor by asking a question — a good doctor won’t feel that way, either." She adds, "pregnancy is a privilege, and I feel lucky that I get to do it. It’s kind of sad that men don’t.”

Whether or not this is his baby, he wants to do the right thing and support her." At the same time Alexis' rep says "Alexis has never asked him for help and she doesn't expect it either."

Keri Russell is pregnant with her second child.

Keri Russell and husband Shane Deary are expecting their second child. Keri, 35, and Shane are already parents to 4-year old son River.

No word on when to expect the new addition to the family.

Finally! Nathalie Portman's baby's name out in the open.

Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman.
It's out! Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman have named their baby boy Aleph. A unique name, that is for everyone that doesn't know Hebrew. Aleph, also spelled Alef, is the (name of the) first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Therefore it also has a connotation of being 'number one'.

It also has an esoteric meaning in the Judaic Kabbalah, in the theological treaty Sefer-ha-Bahir Aleph relates to the origin of the universe, saying that it's the "primordial one that contains all numbers."

Weston Cage and Nikki Williams arrested.

Nikki Williams and Weston Cage.
Newlyweds Weston Cage and Nikki Williams were both arrested after they got into a violent domestic dispute. The 20-year old son of Nicolas Cage and his wife just got out of rehab. However, on the morning of the 3rd of July the police received a phone call about the fight and the dispatcher could hear 'blood-curdling screams' on the other end of the line.

The police arrived to find that the apartment of the lovebirds was completely trashed. Nikki had assaulted Weston with a bottle and cut his arm open, meaning that apart from trashed it was also very bloody. Officers at the scene were quick to arrest Nikki and
they took Weston in as well, since he also showed violent behaviour. After the arrest eye witnesses spotted Weston in what seemed to be his pj's and with a bloody arm. "Never get married" was apparently what he said.

Weston with dad Nicolas Cage.
Weston and Nikki got married in April of this year. A day before the incident Weston had said that everything was 'wonderful' and that he was 'incredibly sober'.
