Marky Marky and his new girl
Gone are the Calvins and here come the nappies and sleepless nights. Actor, Mark Wahlberg and his girlfriend, model Rhea Durham, became parents last week says The Italian Job star’s publicist. The girl, named Ella Rae, was born in Los Angeles, where the couple share a home. No word on the newborn’s weight or other details. It’s the first child for Wahlberg, 32, and Durham, 25. The two former underwear models (he for Calvin Klein, she for Victoria’s Secret) have been dating since 2001, after the breakup of Wahlberg’s relationship with The Fast and the Furious actress Jordana Brewster. ”Rhea is what I was looking for,” Wahlberg once told People magazine. ”She has really strong morals and high standards, and I like that.” Nice to see strong morals still get the spunky guys!
Stone’s not rushing into anything
Since recently announcing her divorce from Phil Bronstein, executive editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, actress Sharon Stone apparently isn’t rushing back into the dating scene as reported in some local mags. Stone allegedly told Access Hollywood she hasn’t dated at all since she and her husband separated. So guess Goldie Hawn?s son is safe at this stage! “This is a whole new life”, Stone admitted. She says she wants “to take it kinda slow” and “do it in a way that’s fun and gentle.” Phew! Glad she doesn?t want to do it fast and hard!
Elle attacks post-natal diets
Elle Macpherson, known as ?the Body’, has recently attacked the current fad for fast post-natal weight loss, saying there appears to be a “competition” between women to see who could lose weight most quickly after a baby. “It’s unhealthy for both mother and child,” Macpherson said in the October edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Celebrity mums, including Victoria Beckham and Elizabeth Hurley, Sarah-Jessica Parker and Catherine Zeta-Jones, just to name a few, are encouraging women to go on crash-diets straight after giving birth. ?I haven’t lost every skerrick of weight yet, but that’s normal – I only had Cy in February,? said Elle. ?Sure, I may not be skinny-skinny, but who cares?” Elle has attacked the “ridiculous” pressure on women to lose weight quickly after childbirth. Good on you Elle, most of wished we looked as good as she did after having a child and being almost 40 too!
