Baby joy for Courteney Cox Arquette
Courteney Cox Arquette is pregnant! Cox Arquette, whose Friends TV character Monica has struggled to have a child, and who, in real life has suffered heartbreaking miscarriages herself, is expecting her first child with husband David Arquette. The celebrity couple have spoken publicly about their struggles to have children and Cox Arquette has admitted she has suffered through “many miscarriages.” The two recently said they were trying to conceive via invitro fertilization. “Yes, we are confirming they are expecting,” said the actress’s publicist, Nanci Ryder, who declined to provide any other details. Rumours of a pregnancy began when Arquette’s brother let slip the potential family secret during an interview on Sharon Osbourne‘s talk show in October.
Goldie Hawn a granny!
Actress Kate Hudson and hubby Chris Robinson, have announced the birth of their first child, a boy, born on January 7. Introducing, Ryder Russell Robinson, who weighed in at 8 pounds, 11 ounces or 3.9 kilograms. Robinson, 37, the former lead man for the Black Crowes, and Hudson, 24, the daughter of Goldie Hawn, have been married since 2000. Despite her acclaimed debut in films like Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Le Divorce, Kate says she is happy to stay home and look after her new baby – at least for now. She’ll also be working on shedding those unwanted kilos she piled on in the last trimester of her pregnancy, the star stating that she felt “fat and unattractive and definitely not sexy” during the last stages of her pregnancy. Let’s hope she doesn’t overdue it with her rush to be a size 8 again!
Baby girl for Kate Ceberano
Local favourite Kate Ceberano and her husband Lee Rogers also announced the birth of their own newest addition last week. The couple are the proud parents of a baby girl, Gypsy, born at 8pm on January 6. The healthy bub weighed 4.22kg or 9 pound 5 ounces. Both mother and daughter are reported to be doing well. Ceberano was in Melbourne recording her latest album The Girl Can Help It when she discovered she was pregnant. She raced to finish the record, which she had been working on for three years, so she could get out and promote it before the birth. As soon as the album was completed, Ceberano embarked on a promotional tour in the lead up to Gyspy’s birth. Seems like Gypsy will get to spend some serious stay at home time with mum now all the touring is out of the way!
Harrison Ford is officially unhitched
Harrison Ford‘s long awaited divorce from his wife of 18 years, screenwriter Melissa Mathison Ford, became final last week in the States. But papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court did not reveal details of the divorce settlement or custody arrangement for the couple’s children. The Fords, who met on the set of the 1979 film Apocalypse Now, filed for a separation in August 2001 after living apart for nearly a year. In typical Hollywood style, they cited “irreconcilable differences” on their divorce papers. Now officially single, the Indiana Jones star is free to escort his current girlfriend, actress Calista Flockhart who has been patiently waiting in the wings for her man, down the aisle. They say all good things do come to those who wait – isn’t that the way the fairy tale ends? Stay tuned.
