Billy Joel marries for third time

Billy and Kate
Singer Billy Joel has married his fianc?e, 23-year-old Kate Lee on the weekend. The pair wed at sunset at his Long Island home in a ceremony attended by his former wife, Christie Brinkley and their teenage daughter Alexa Ray. It is the third marriage for the 55-year-old, who met his TV restaurant critic wife last year, according to BBC News Online. Joel has had more than 24 hit singles in the US, in a career that has spanned over 20 years. His song Piano Man, which was released in 1973 and became a hit the following year, became his signature tune in the US. Last month the singer, who is also a classically-trained pianist and composer, was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

No name yet for third Beckham boy
Victoria Beckham has spoken out publicly for the first time since falling pregnant earlier this year. She said her sons five-year-old Brooklyn, and Romeo, two, are thrilled at the prospect of a little brother. Despite knowing she is giving birth to a boy, she and husband David Beckham haven?t chosen a name, saying ?We want to wait and see what he is like. We are going to buy a book of names and then we will see.? She also insists she isn?t disappointed that they?re not having a girl, ?We are very happy. I know it’s an obvious thing to say but as long as the child is healthy, I don’t mind if it’s a boy or a girl.” She even hinted there may be more babies to come after the birth of their third son in March, ?I love the word luna (Spanish for moon). I know it’s a girl’s name – so maybe for the next baby…” she said.
