What the gossip mags say
Snaps of the Duchess of Cambridge's emerging baby bump are making the rounds this week along with Britney Spears' breakup and the best gowns of the recent Golden Globe awards.
All eyes were on Prince William and the Duchess as she made her first public outing since the pregnancy was announced to attend the unveiling of her official portrait at London's National Portrait Gallery.
New Idea says the couple are hoping the baby will arrive on the first of July, the late Princess Diana's birthday and according to UK media, bookies are taking bets on it.
Kate will be taking a step back from royal duties to prepare for the much-anticipated birth with yoga, decorating the palace and a diet of superfoods, according to Women's Weekly.
Pippa Middleton, meanwhile has been killing wild boar and deer with a high-society hunting party in Belgium, says Woman's Day.
All the mags have fears for Britney Spears going off the rails after being dumped by fiance Jason Trawick.
Woman's Day says the former X-Factor judge is on a 24-hour watch and is exhibiting the same behaviour as in 2007 when she had her infamous meltdown.
The magazine's sources say she has been talking in a British accent and isn't sleeping or showering.
"She also comes out of her room stark naked and starts hassling security."
Friends of Spears say Trawick was more like a father to Britney than her fiance and grew tired of parenting her.
Golden Globe gowns in shades of red, white and black with touches of the 1920s made the grade for fashion critics with actress Zooey Deschanel's red gown topping Women's Weekly's list.
Looper star Emily Blunt sparkled in a golden, cut-out dress and a Zac Posen dress worn by Naomi Watts relived the 1920s.
Zac Posen was also worn by Kelly Osbourne but its mermaid-esque style didn't please magazine critics.
New Idea guest fashion columnist and WORLD designer Denise L'estrange-Corbet scored Jessica Alba and Michelle Dockery's shimmery pastel dresses 10 out of 10 as well as Helen Mirren and Kate Hudson for their classic black dresses with gold detailing.
Aside from the Golden Globe fashion spreads, other celeb buzz included Khloe Kardashian spending over half a million dollars to find a surrogate mum to carry her first child, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson splitting for a second time, and broadcaster Paul Holmes' knighthood.
