Gossip: Royal baby bonanza
News and rumours of royal babies have sent the gossip mags into a flutter.
It was reported the Duchess of Cambridge left New Zealand with a baby on board, perhaps even twins, while the Princess of Monaco confirmed she was expecting her first child.
Both Woman's Day and New Idea featured Kate on the cover, with WD declaring the princess may have conceived on the New Zealand leg of the couple's April tour.
Royal "insiders" told WD that Kate looked a little off colour in recent times and this surely meant she was pregnant.
"All the signs are there," a so-called friend said.
"Kate has made no secret of the fact that she and William are ready for another baby and they want to have at least three children before she's 35, so she's on a strict time schedule."
Meanwhile NI featured a misleading cover stating "Kate's shock -- it's twins", before going on to say that while she was not pregnant, she had a good chance of conceiving twins if she did happen to become pregnant.
One royal pregnancy that had actually happened was that of Their Serene Highnesses, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco.
The couple have been married for three years and suffered through near constant rumours of a royal baby during that time but confirmed last week they were finally expecting.
"Prince Albert and Princess Charlene have the immense joy to announce they are expecting a happy event," a statement from the couple in Woman's Weekly said.
"The birth is due at the end of the year."
Meanwhile in the weird and wonderful world of American celebrities, Jennifer Lopez was reported to be devastated her toyboy Casper Smart had been exchanging racy photos with a transsexual swimsuit model.
The relationship was not over, as Lopez was about to release her new album and did not want negative publicity, but a friend told NI it would not last much longer after that.
WD reported Katie Holmes was looking to adopt a new child to give her daughter, Suri, a sister.
She would be going solo this time as there were no plans for a reconciliation with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
Closer to home, comedian Mike King opened up to WD about how his 10-month-old daughter Charlie had saved his life and made him a better man.
Former All Blacks hard man Michael Jones also spoke to NI about how he was trying to be the best father possible.
After losing his dad to a heart attack when he was four, Jones said he was trying to stay on top of his health so he could be there for his kids as they grow up.
