Friends star Courteney Cox is pregnant with her second child, according to US tabloid Life & Style. Apparently the 41-year-old is in her first trimester and is concerned that there might be problems down the line. Her husband David Arquette told an insider: ?We?re expecting a child, but she doesn?t need the pressure of everyone watching us. She?s not that far along, but she has it in her head that there might be problems. You can never tell until after three months. It?s scary enough as it is. I just wish it hadn?t gotten out.” Apparently close friend Jennifer Aniston is thrilled by the news, David saying: ?It?s really good for her psyche that this happened. And she?s a great support, telling Courteney not to worry too much.? Another friend confirms the pregnancy as well, saying ?She?s very concerned. Not that anything?s wrong ? but there are risks as you get older.? Courteney?s rep denies any pregnancy.

Madonna vs Mariah
The claws were out at the Grammy Awards last week. Apparently Mariah Carey is ticked off that Madonna was given the coveted opening performance, saying she ?really wanted to open the show with her choir-backed rendition of We Belong Together.” Even though Mariah?s career resurrection resulted in 8 Grammy Nominations, Madonna has more celebrity cred and put in a few demands of her own. She told Grammy producers that if she wasn?t given the spot she wanted, she wouldn?t turn up at all. According to the New York Daily News, the producers gave in because they thought her Confessions of a Dancefloor collaboration with the Gorillaz would be good for ratings. Apparently this isn?t the first time Madonna and Mariah have battled. According to one insider: “The war between Madonna and Mariah has been going on for years? Mariah was also steaming last summer when Madonna stole the show at Live 8.”

Tom’s gay investigation
Acclaimed biographer Andrew Morton is determined to find some dirt on Tom Cruise, and the Hollywood star isn?t happy. Tom is threatening to sue because Andrew has hired a gay porn star and a Los Angeles private investigator to shed some light on his private life. Their brief: to find evidence that the Top Gun star is gay. The porn star, Paul Baressi has reportedly already come up with letters from Tom?s attorney implying that he enjoyed a homosexual liaison while shooting Eyes Wide Shut. But Tom?s lawyer has denied the claims, saying: “I wrote a letter to Mr. Morton back in November and said he obviously was entitled to write the book but ‘make sure you check your facts’. If he tries to use my letter to create the impression that Mr. Cruise did have a gay affair, we will certainly sue… because the story is false. Mr. Cruise is not gay.” Andrew Morton is previously known for collaborating with Diana, Princess of Wales to write a biography of her life.

Baby joy for Courteney Cox Arquette

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.

The couple is also undergoing treatment with IVF.

New CD proves Dido can survive post Eminem

After four years in the musical wilderness, UK songbird Dido is back with a new album Life for Rent, and she?s keen to prove she is not a one-hit wonder. Dido?s unique voice gained a wide audience in an unusual way a couple of years back – she was sampled by Eminem in the chorus of his hit song Stan. But with good early sales for Life for Rent, it might well be that she can step out of the shadow of bad boy rapper.



As her popularity has increased, so have the requests to ?tart herself up a bit? to sell more albums. Not one to be pushed around, her clever response was “I get offered all the covers of all the men’s magazines and I’m like `Well if I’ve done alright and bought myself total musical freedom already without taking my clothes off, why do I need to now?’ It’s nicer to have an aura of mystery and to keep something back,” she says. Pity that some of her other female performers didn?t think the same way! Should someone have given Jewel that advice?



Demi Moore meets younger boyfriend’s mum

Hey, does it mean you are going steady if you meet your boyfriend?s parents? If so, Demi Moore and toy boy Ashton Kutcher appear to have stepped it up a notch or two. Rumour has it that Ashton took Demi home to meet his Momma in Iowa for some good home cooking. Kutcher?s mom, Diane Portwood cooked up a storm for the lovebirds, who were holed up at her place for the whole weekend avoiding those pesky paparazzi who had tracked them down. Ashton?s mum told PeopleNews, that Demi was very real and not the diva she expected. Diane said ‘What I’ve found is when you meet many of these so-called celebrities in person, they are really down to earth. We sat down and talked about her kids, and my kids and we had a great time.’ Awww, shucks sounds like Demi still knows how to impress!
