Khloe Kardashian as we all know married famous Laker, Lamar Odom, after only a month, and has been for a over a year trying to get pregnant.

Celine Dion Preparing for Twins

Songstress Celine Dion is happy to announce she’s expecting twins.  The singer underwent her sixth in-vitro fertilization recently and is fourteen weeks along in her pregnancy, with the gender of the twins to be confirmed next month.

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil

Dion and husband René Angelil already share one child together, nine year-old René-Charles.  Dion and her manager-husband married in an ultra-lavish ceremony fitting for the Canadian diva.  As a bride, Dion wore a lavish gown by designers Mirella and Steve Gentile, featuring a sweetheart neckline, a necklace with rows of diamonds and a twenty-foot train.   The bride complemented all this with a nine pound crown featuring 2,000 Austrian crystals.

With news of the arrival of their twins, Angelil commented, “We’re ecstatic.  Celine is just hoping for a healthy pregnancy.  She was hoping for one baby and the news that we are having two is a double blessing.”  Dion has been experimenting with in vitro fertilization for a while now, and also credits acupuncture as a helpful tool in getting her pregnant once again.

Al and Tipper Gore Separate

After forty years of marriage, Al and Tipper Gore have chosen to separate and will likely end their marriage.  The AP obtained a copy of an email sent out by the Gores, which read “it was a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration.”  The Gores’ rep confirmed the statement, but declined to give further details.

Though their marriage had always been strong, it was also often tested by Al’s governmental roles and also the death of their six year-old son.  The pair had met and fell in love the night of his high school graduation dance.  Tipper later wrote in a memoir that “it was like everyone else melted away.”  Al later proposed marriage to tipper along the banks of the Charles River during her junior year at Boston University.

The pair married and exchanged wedding rings in 1970 at the Washington National Cathedral.   Over the years the pair have often commented on their marriage, encouraging married couples to stay together.  “One of the lessons I’ve learned from [Tipper] is a way to enrich my own experience of life by opening up to the heart as well as the head…she’s been a great teacher for me.”  Al Gore once said.

Eva Longoria Loves to Splurge

“Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria is not one to be cheap. Her 2007 wedding featured a lot of jaw-dropping bling, a score of fantastic fireworks in the French sky, and an after-party in a seventeenth-century castle. The wedding ring, especially, was a sight to behold: a Piaget’s Possession ring made with 18K white gold and two rows of 80 brilliant cut white diamonds, separated by a row of 27 square-cut diamonds.

I’m happy.” The pair have been celebrating Parker’s birthday for two weeks, with their travels taking them from Miami to Los Angeles to Vegas for the big birthday blowout.

Mario Lopez Hoping for a Bigger Baby

Former “Saved by the Bell” star Mario Lopez is feeding his girlfriend and mom-to-be a whole assortment of fatty foods with the hope that she’ll produce a “chubby baby”. He can’t say enough good things about his pregnant girlfriend, Courtney Mazza. “She looks beautiful pregnant and I just pamper her. I’m constantly trying to feed her because I want to have a really healthy, chubby baby.”

The couple are happily engaged with Mario proposing with a gorgeous engagement ring. Meanwhile Lopez is keeping extremely busy with his gig as an Extra TV host and a possible reality TV series. “It’s not 100 percent confirmed, but it is looking pretty good.” He says. “It follows me juggling through everything and wanting to learn. There’s so much out there for women but not so much for men, and I want to be a very hands-on dad. I think having a humorous but informative way to tell that story would be great for a show.” And not only is this entrepreneur working on the reality show, but he is also prepping his own book on fatherhood! Lopez describes it as a book “women could get for their guys to be prepared for fatherhood.”

Baby in the Works for Mariah Carey?

Singer icon Mariah Carey has been fueling a lot of baby rumors lately after abruptly pulling out of the Tyler Perry film based on Ntozake Shange’s 1975 play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.  Carey’s rep declined to give any reason for the swift departure, saying “I’m not at liberty to discuss her personal life at this time.”

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Both Carey and Cannon renewed their marriage vows earlier this year in a lavish Beverly Hills ceremony, which featured Cannon gifting Mariah with a custom-made ring pop covered in diamonds.  Regarding the constant pregnancy rumors, Cannon added that the couple definitely want children.  “We’re going to do it,and when we do it we’re going to let you all know.  But right now, we’re trying to enjoy the newlywed aspect.”

Cannon seems to have nothing but great things to say about Carey, likening their relationship top a romantic comedy and saying they would have a wedding everyday, if they could.  “We are both kids at heart.  She is the funniest person ever and she has a great sense of humor.”

No Wedding Gifts for Brand and Perry

Katy Perry and Russell Brand are not big on tradition.  The couple got engaged in India atop an elephant, and have caused quite few headlines with some of their projected wedding plans.  One of the more outlandish ideas was the couple’s plans for making their dogs the possible ring bearer.  But the most transgressive of all their ideas may be their no-gifts policy.  And yet, Brand explains, “Given that Katy and I both have good jobs, we don’t want any presents.  It would be a massive indulgence.”

Brand’s “Get Him to the Greek co-stars have a few recommendations for him, however.  Nicholas Stoller says that Perry and Brand might need “a waffle maker” and a “really fancy hair dryer”, while Brands other co-star, Kali Hawk, says they might need some “diamond, platinum, titanium-encrusted flat irons.”  Meanwhile, newlywed Elizabeth Moss adds that “you got to invest in the good sheets and towels…Those are things you don’t buy yourself.”  Essentials!

Perry and Brand originally met at the MTV VMA Awards, while Brand was hosting. Apparently Brand shamelessly flirted with Perry and the pair obviously really hit it off.  Since then, the pair have been inseparable, traveling everywhere from Thailand to London to India to Los Angeles.  No wedding date announced yet, but all can expect it to be a perfectly unconventional bash.

‘Lost’ Actor and Barbara Hershey Split

Despite their 21 year age-difference, ‘Lost’ star Naveen Andrews and screen actress Barbara Hershey have officially called it quits.  The pair have been together for over twelve years, first meeting on the set of the obscure 1999 film, Drowning on Dry Land, when Hershey was 50 and Naveen was only 29.  Though the pair remained together for over a decade, they never had plans to marry or exchange engagement rings.

Barbara Hershey and Naveen Andrews

Hershey is best known for her roles in “Beaches”  and “Hannah and Her Sisters”, and of course Andrews was tailor-made for his role in “Lost”.  The two have managed to keep the details of their relationship (and break-up) private, with one of  the few loose details being a brief break-up in 2005 when Andrews apparently hooked up with another woman and fathered a child. Hershey and Andrews got back together soon after that, and managed to keep their break-up quiet when it happened six months ago.

Sean Penn: Single Activist

Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn is finding more time and energy to devote to activist causes now that he’s single.  Penn had been together with actress Robin Wright since 1989, just after a stormy divorce with superstar Madonna.   The pair got married in 1996 after already having two children.   After initially receiving a gorgeous engagement ring, the two exchanged wedding rings in a private ceremony in Los Angeles.  “I just felt like I needed to dive in.” Wright had said about the couple’s roller-coaster relationship.

The pair briefly reunited to pray for their sixteen year-old son’s recovery after a near-fatal skateboarding incident.  After that experience, Penn did some soul-searching and consulted composer-producer T Bone Burnett, the man responsible for Bob Dylan’s born-again revival in the seventies.

“I wanted to give back something to more to help struggling people, but I didn’t know how to best do it.   I was for twenty years in a relationship with Robin and eighteen years with children.  I didn’t have time to commit to anything–for real–in places like Iraq, except to denounce the war.  But now I’m single, I can lend a hand.”    Penn has focused nearly all his efforts these days towards helping the victims of the devastating 7.0 earthquake in Haiti.  Penn affirms that his commitment to the Caribbean is a longterm one, saying that “there is no exit for me until there is more life than death.”

Mariah’s Possible Baby Names

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are among Hollywood’s most fabulous and happy couples. The pair refuse to have a boring time as a married couple, enjoying special celebrations such as marriage vow renewal celebrations. The latest celebration featured Cannon offering Mariah a ring pop encrusted with diamonds.

And now there are reports that the couple might be expecting a baby as Carey recently dropped out of the latest Tyler Perry project. “I’m pretty sure that when my wife is ready to make any announcement, it won’t be to the media, to the public first.” Cannon has said. “She’ll tell her family, she’ll tell her friends, and then, you know, when she’s ready to share with the rest of the world, who is her extended family and friends, then she’ll let everybody know. So, when she tells me something, I’ll tell y’all, probably after I tell my mama.”

And when she is ready to announce a pregnancy, Cannon jokes that the couple already have names selected. “We’re gonna name all our kids Mariah no matter if they’re boys or girls. Mariah no. 1, Boy Mariah, Man Mariah, Tall Mariah. It’s gonna be a house full of people named Mariah.”

Cannon has been quite vocal about the couple’s desire to have children since 2009. “It’s probably a question I get asked more than anything: When are we having children?” Cannon says, “You know, you got to leave all that stuff to God. That’s in God’s hands. So, when it happens, it happens, and we’ll be happy.”
