Body-conscious Kate Middleton is ashamed of her growing baby bump, according to the Woman's Day this week.

The mag warned despite her being on holiday in the Caribbean, she probably would not be slipping into a maternity bikini.

According to one of the Duchess' close friends, Middleton "hates everyone staring at it and feels very self-conscious".

To combat the issue, she has been keeping it carefully covered - a move Victoria Beckham mastered when she was pregnant, the magazine said.

Beckham enlisted herself a maternity-wear style guru to the royal, and recommended drapey ponchos, kaftans, and capes to keep the bump concealed.

In stark contrast, Kim Kardashian was "out and proud" with her baby bump, said Woman's Day.

Keeping it consistent, Kardashian was sticking to her curve-hugging frocks and tight workout gear.

She was even photographed browsing for lingerie in upmarket boutiques - attracting raised eyebrows from US fashion experts.

They said it showed she was struggling to make the "transition from normal clothing to maternity wear."

Another Kardashian chucked out her maternity wear and shed the baby weight in the same breath.

In the turbulent world of celebrity hookups, New Idea reported a seemingly unlikely affair.

Apparently Justin Bieber hooked up with Rihanna on the sly when his relationship with Disney darling Selena Gomez was but a fledgling romance.

New Idea said any chance of a make-up between Bieber and Gomez has gone out the window.

But reconciling is exactly what Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy are doing.

New Idea said Harry convinced Chelsy to dump her boyfriend, so they can make a "serious go of things as a couple".

One of Harry's friends said he never gave up on getting her back, and he's a "changed man" since fighting in Afghanistan.

Woman's Weekly had a spread on broadcaster Kerre Woodham's wedding, and reported Brooke-Howard Smith's confession - "I was a disaster" - before he married Amber Peebles.
