Milla Jovovich Expecting Second Child

Milla Jovovich Pregnant Expecting Second Child

Milla Jovovich doesn’t mess around with her to-do list: she’s pregnant!

After recently saying she was focused on expanding her family, the actress announced on Monday that she and her husband, director and producer Paul W.S. Anderson, are expecting their second child.

Her Facebook announcement comes as many fans eagerly await another installment of Resident Evil — a role that has now been put on the back burner.

“So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone’s best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie,” Jovovich, 38, writes. “Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn’t think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo!”

The mom-to-be jokes, “I imagine the only thing I’ll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes.”

Jovovich and Anderson, 49, are already parents to Ever Gabo, and with their firstborn getting older, the actress was determined to make their 6½-year-old daughter a big sister soon rather than later.

“I want to have a baby and that is my number one priority. If I don’t do it now, it will get more difficult the older I get,” she told Hello! magazine. “I have to do it before [Ever] is too old to enjoy it. I don’t have all the time in the world to think about it.”

Christina Aguilera‘s baby girl has arrived!

The Voice coach and fiancé Matt Rutler welcomed a daughter on Saturday, Aug. 16 in Los Angeles, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“So proud to welcome our beautiful daughter Summer Rain Rutler into the world,” the singer Tweeted early Monday morning.

This is the second child for Aguilera, 33, who is already mom to a 6½-year-old son, Max Liron, from her previous marriage to Jordan Bratman.

The popstar’s pregnancy was revealed in February, a week after Aguilera had announced her engagement to Rutler, a film producer whom she had met on the set of Burlesque in 2010.

In March, Aguilera revealed she was expecting a girl. “I’m really excited to meet our baby girl,” she told PEOPLE in June. “This has been a very easy and enjoyable pregnancy.”

Aguilera turned up the heat over the summer, celebrating her baby shower in early July with a rather risqué cake before posing nude for V magazine.

“As a woman, I’m proud to embrace my body through all stages of life, staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store,” she said at the time.

Robin Williams Has Died of Suicide


Prolific actor Robin Williams has died.

The actor “passed away [Monday] morning. He had been battling severe depression of late,” his rep said in a statement. “This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Williams was found in his home in Tiburon, California, after police responded to a 911 call, PEOPLE has confirmed. He was 63.

“At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death may be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made,” Lt. Keith Boyd, the Marin Country assistant chief deputy coroner, said in a statement.

The Crazy Ones star checked himself into rehab in early July after battling alcohol and drug addiction throughout his life.

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken,” his wife Susan Schneider said in a statement.

“On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

Upon Williams’s passing, President Barack Obama issued the following statement: “Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit.”

The President also cited Williams’s generosity in entertaining “our troops stationed abroad [and those] marginalized on our own streets.”

Williams, who shot to fame in 1978 in the TV series Mork & Mindy, enjoyed a long career as a comedic and voice actor. He was in talks to reprise his role in the sequel for the popular family film Mrs. Doubtfire.

“There really are no words to describe the loss of Robin Williams,” Fox network said in a statement. “He was immensely talented, a cherished member of our community, and part of the Fox family. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and fans. He will be deeply missed.”

CBS, which last season broadcast the Williams sitcom The Crazy Ones, said in its statement, “Our world has lost a comic genius, a gifted actor and a beautiful man. We will remember Robin Williams as one of the unique talents of his time who was loved by many, but also as a kind, caring soul, who treated his colleagues and co-workers with great affection and respect. Our heartfelt thoughts and sympathies go out to his family, loved ones and friends.”

Others who worked with Williams recalled his kindness and humor.

“He was just such a nice man,” said an industry source who worked with him in 2013. “He would always say hello and ask if I needed help with anything. He was just lovely. Everyone really loved working with him.”

“Nobody made the world laugh like Robin Williams,” David Steinberg, his manager of 35 years, told PEOPLE. “My brother, my friend, my soul mate, I will miss you.”

Ali Larter Expecting Second Child

Ali Larter Pregnant Expecting Second Child

This is no urban legend: Ali Larter is pregnant!

The Legends star is expecting her second child with husband Hayes MacArthur, she announced during a Friday appearance on The Tonight Show.

“[Three years ago] I came on and I was pregnant and it went so well, and I said to my husband, ‘I’m going on Fallon, you know what that means — gotta get pregnant!’ ” she said.

Host Jimmy Fallon leaned down to Larter’s baby belly, saying, “Hey buddy! I can’t wait to meet you! We’re going to be friends.”

“It’s so exciting. It’s such a scary time and I’ve been trying to hide it as much as you can, and when you’re in the public eye it’s really scary in the beginning,” she explained.

“I was still shooting my spy drama … I had to be a covert spy in my real life, too, so I’m wearing blazers and push-up bras and everything you can do to distract.”

Larter, 38, wed the writer at his family estate in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 2009, and the couple welcomed their first child, son Theodore Hayes, now 3½, in 2010.

“We’ve told him about him, and I actually will say, ‘Teddy, wait, it’s talking to you,’ and he’ll be, ‘What Mom, what’s going on?’ And I go, ‘It says that it loves Batman and was wondering if it can watch it with you?’ He goes, ‘Oh my God, Mom! Batman, I can’t even watch it, can I watch it with the baby?’ “

After giving birth to her baby boy, Larter told Health magazine it took “working out a lot” — and five months — to lose the pregnancy pounds.

“It’s hard to impress me with a body that hasn’t had a baby. Have a baby and then let’s talk,” the actress and cookbook author joked.
