  • 'My 18 month old likes to twerk', says Lily Allen

    Lily Allen got candid about her daughter's twerking skills in an recent Radio 2 interview with presenter Jonathan Ross.

    The mum-of-two admitted that, while her eldest daughter Ethel has inherited mum's love for singing, her youngest daughter, 18-month-old Marnie, likes to 'twerk'. 

    "The eldest one loves singing in her cot for about an hour every night before she goes to bed," Lily said. "The other one can actually twerk already."

    Twerking, for those who don’t know, is a provocative dance move involving er, lots of hip movement, made popular by 21-year-old popstar Miley Cyrus.

    But 29-year-old mum Lily was quick to qualify her quote when Jonathan commented that he wasn’t sure if he’d admit the same thing about his own child.

    "It’s not a real twerk," she said. “You know, it’s just that she’s got some sort of waist action."

    Whatever you say, Lily!

  • Shakira is pregnant with baby number 2

    The world’s worst-kept pregnancy secret is finally out: Shakira is expecting baby number 2!

    The Hips Don’t Lie singer confirmed the happy news in the latest Spanish issue of Cosmopolitan. She didn’t beat around the bush, either, responding to the interviewer’s question with a short but sweet, "Yes, I’m pregnant."

    Despite Shakira's efforts to cover up her pregnancy with a loose-fitting black T-shirt during her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge last week, it seems a friend of the couple let the news slip to a radio station back in July.

    This baby will be the 2nd child for Shakira and her partner, football player Gerard Pique. The couple are already parents to their 19-month-old son Milan.

    Shakira told the April issue of Latina that she’s keen to have more children soon and that she’d love to have "8 or 9 kids" with Gerard.

    "They'd be my own football team,” she joked.

  • Dawn O'Porter and Chris O'Dowd are expecting!

    Bridesmaids actor Chris O’Dowd surprised fans when he took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge just a few days ago.

    The IT Crowd star filmed himself taking a (rather shallow) bucket of freezing cold water to the head. He then nominated 2 friends to take part in the charity social-media craze, before sheepishly announcing that "Baby O'Porter" was nominated, too.

    Chris then panned the camera over to TV presenter wife Dawn O’Porter, revealing her obviously pregnant stomach. She responded to the challenge, smiling, and she laughed as she poured a small glass of ice cubes over her baby bump.

    Not long after Chris posted the video, Dawn tweeted: "Thought we'd better mention it, before I got O’Busted!"

    Dawn and Chris got married in 2012, over 3 days of wedding celebrations dubbed at the time as ‘WedFest’. Baby O’Porter is the first child for the happy couple. No word yet on when she's due and whether it's a boy or a girl. 

    Congrats both!

  • Ciara shares adorable pics of baby Future

    US singer Ciara hasn’t had the easiest few weeks, with rumours swirling that she’s split from her fiancé Future over reports that the rapper has been having an ongoing affair with his stylist.

    Fortunately, it seems that the new mum is focusing all of her energy on her 3-month-old son Future Zahir. The 28-year-old star took to Instagram to share a few snaps of her little boy looking super cute.

    In the first, baby Future rocks some classic Aviators and a black babygro as he chills out in his car seat. Ciara simply captioned the pic “#zonin”

    It also seems the new mum has been focusing on her trim post-baby body. In the second snap, the mother and son duo are in the gym and Ciara looks overjoyed as she lifts baby Future over her head.

    “Nothing Like Lifting THIS Weight, After Gym:) He Motivates Me To Go Harder,” Ciara wrote beside the sweet pic.

  • Brad & Ange become Mr & Mrs

    It’s confirmed! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are officially married – and their 6 children all had a part to play in the ceremony.

    Brangelina tied the knot secretly in the South of France, their rep told the Associated Press yesterday.

    Angelina and Brad, whose names first merged around 9 years ago, wed privately in a ‘moving’ ceremony at their home Chateau Miraval, with a reported 22 guests present. 

    Sons Maddox, 12, and Pax, 10, walked their mum down the aisle, whilst 9-year-old daughter Zahara and 5-year-old Vivienne served as flower girls. Shiloh, 8, and Vivienne’s twin brother Knox were ring bearers. 

    Workers at the newlyweds’ £35 million estate told reporters that the wedding was 'very modest' and that the couple wept with joy throughout the ceremony.

    Well, we’d be crying tears of joy too if we’d just married Brad Pitt...

    Congratulations!
