— If all goes according to plan, Jennifer Lopez will be receiving two special valentines: namely, her twin babies, who are due on Thursday, Feb. 14.
While this date has been bandied about before, a source close to Lopez said Valentine’s Day is the date she’s been focused on since the beginning of her pregnancy. “She didn’t just like it because of the obvious correlation, which is sweet, but she also was happy that it ... would easily make the deadline for the weekly magazine covers.”
The source said that Lopez would love it if she was able to have the first photo shoot take place in one of the three nurseries she’s had designed by Petit Tresor. “She spent over $120,000 on them (the nurseries),” said the source.
There’s no overall theme to the nurseries, but all of them include cribs, changing tables and armoires imported from France and England and “some of it has 18 karat gold on the legs and knobs. The rooms will even have crystal chandeliers.”
The twins, who are rumored to be named Anna Maria and Marc Ruiz, will be sharing a room, at least at first.
Angelina crosses borders, dodges pregnancy questions
If there was ever an added bonus to Angelina Jolie’s travels on behalf of the United Nations, it was that she was free to do her work and not be peppered with questions about her personal life.
Well, those days are gone.
During an exclusive interview with CNN reporter Arwan Damon, Damon began a question with, “There are reports out of Hollywood,” only to have Jolie interrupt, saying, “Oh don’t. Stop it. Stay true to your tradition. You’re CNN. Don’t do it!”
Whether Damon was going to get Jolie to admit she was expecting another baby or just comment on one of the many “reports out of Hollywood,” we’ll never know. But kudos to CNN for making us feel like they’re curious, too.
Halle Berry spending her way through pregnancy
Speaking of expectant mothers, Halle Berry’s name has been popping up in gossip circles. Berry is said to be bent on buying only organic and green products for her new baby, and according to a source close to Berry, “she’s sparing no expense.”
This certainly dovetails with a report from In Touch, which claims that Berry is dropping $1,350 for 16 ounces of Crème De La Mer to use on her ever-expanding baby bump to keep stretch marks at bay.
Weekend box office
Kate Hudson and dad-to-be Matthew McConaughey stand a good chance of being the golden children of the big screen this weekend when their new flick, “Fool’s Gold” hits theaters. Other contenders include the eponymous “Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights — Hollywood to the Heartland” and “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins,” starring Martin Lawrence. I’d be remiss to not include the latest gem from Paris Hilton, “The Hottie & the Nottie,” as well. Although I’m sure Ms. Hilton would like to think her film’s 111-screen opening has a shot, I’m putting my money on “Fool’s Gold” to take the box-office win.
