Ice T, Wife Coco Expecting a Baby, Rapper to be Dad Again at 57!

Ice T and Coco are expecting a baby

Legendary rapper Ice T is to become a dad again at the age of 57. A source confirms to Us Weekly that his wife of 14 years, Coco Austin, is pregnant!

The pair, who recently revealed details about their new daily talk show, Ice and Coco, which will premiere on Fox channels on Monday, August 3, have another, even more exciting new project in the works! Coco, who has been very vocal about her desire for kids even though her husband already has two children and a 20-year-old grandson, is finally getting what she’s always wanted — a baby.

Ice T and Coco are already parents to their two beloved bulldogs, Spartacus and Maximus, but have had babies on the mind for the past few years. Back in 2012, the Law and Order: SVU‘s curvy wife broke down in tears during an episode of their hit reality show Ice Loves Coco when a doctor informed her that her blood pressure was too high to allow her to safely carry a baby.

Vowing to get her health back under control, the surgically enhanced glamour model expressed her determination to become a mom one day (regardless of her husband’s slightly less enthusiastic reaction!) and revealed last year, as she turned 35, that she was taking prenatal vitamins.

But don’t expect Coco to tone down her racy image just because she’s becoming a mom! In a promo for her and Ice T’s new talk show the bubbly model, actress and dancer revealed she’s an expert at making sure all things domestic are still sexy!

“I’ve branded myself to be sexy, but also be a wife at the same time,” she says. “I cook, I clean, I’ll be washing the car…..in heels. Everything is Cocofied!”

Bobbi Kristina Brown Dead at Age 22

Bobbi Kristina Brown

On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, tragically passed away at the age of 22. Her death came almost six months after she was found — in circumstances eerily similar to her mother’s death — unconscious in her bathtub on Saturday, Jan. 31, by her longtime partner Nick Gordon. Bobbi Kristina was placed in hospice care on Wednesday, June 24, after months of treatment in a medically induced coma. She was surrounded by family and friends at the time of her death.

Bobbi Kristina’s family has remained by her side throughout the ordeal. After spending over two weeks in a coma, doctors performed a tracheotomy in February, to help stave off infection from her breathing tube while she continued to fight for her life.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” the Houston family tells Us Weekly in a statement. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

As previously reported, police confirmed to Us that the entire case surrounding her death is being treated as a criminal investigation following unexplained markings on her body. Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was questioned in regard to the circumstances surrounding her death. He also appeared on Dr. Phil in March, where his interview was quickly turned into an intervention after Gordon was clearly slurring his words and threatening his own life. He entered rehab soon after and left in April.

Born in 1993, Bobbi Kristina was the only child of the late Houston and Brown. The couple had a tumultuous 14-year marriage, tarnished by rumors of infidelity, drug use, and domestic violence. In a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer, Houston famously declared, “Crack is whack,” adding she’d never do crack because it’s “too cheap.” The family appeared on the widely criticized 2005 reality show Being Bobby Brown. Houston filed for divorce in 2006 and in 2007 it was finalized. The “I Will Always Love You” singer — who won seven Grammys and sold more than 200 million albums in her storied career — was awarded custody of their daughter.

The shocking loss comes more than three years after Houston herself died at age 48 in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton hotel room on Feb. 11, 2012.

Less than a month after her Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina spoke with Oprah Winfrey about losing her mother, saying, “It comes in waves. One minute I could be laughing and happy, but then it will come over me. It’s my mom. I start crying, but then I hear her again, saying, ‘Come on, keep moving.'”

Bobbi Kristina expressed her desire to become a singer like her world-famous parents on the Lifetime reality show The Houstons: On Our Own, which aired for one season in late 2012.

Days before Bobbi Kristina was found in the bathtub, an insider tells Us Weekly that she got into a fight with her longtime love Gordon, whom Houston informally adopted when he was a teen.

The unconventional relationship, which Bobbi Kristina referred to as a marriage, was a controversial subject within the Houston family. Bobby Brown’s lawyer Christopher Brown released a statement on Feb. 3, saying, “To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.” As a result of the controversial relationship, Bobbi was estranged from her father in recent years, a source tells Us.

The fight with Gordon led her to a darker place, according to sources. “She was depressed and very upset,” the insider explains. “Whitney’s death hit her harder than anyone will ever know.”

Following her hospitalization, Gordon was not allowed to visit the star. In a February statement to Us, Gordon’s lawyers expressed he had adamantly tried to be by her side. “Nick has been trying, privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively,” his lawyers told Us. “He has respected the family’s wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted.”

The investigation surrounding her death is ongoing.

Jaime King Gives Birth, Welcomes Second Baby Boy With Husband Kyle Newman

Jaime King and Kyle Newman

Jaime King has a new little prince! The Hart of Dixie alum gave birth to her second child, a baby boy, late last week, she revealed via Instagram on Monday, July 20.

King, 36, announced the happy news by sharing a picture of herself nursing her newborn son while sitting next to husband Kyle Newman and their eldest child, 21-month-old James Knight.

“We are SO happy to welcome to the world our new baby boy!” she captioned the photo. “Born Thursday, July 16th! Xx”

20150721-king-1
The little one, whose name has not yet been revealed, is King and Newman’s second child together. The couple announced their second pregnancy this past February — and later revealed that they had chosen the actress’ BFF Taylor Swift as the baby’s godmother. (Jessica Alba is James’ godmother.)

“I always knew she was going to be the godmother if I had another baby,” the Pearl Harbor actress told Elle.com of the “Style” singer. “Choosing a godmother is a very sacred and important thing in our family…We try and choose people who we know would raise our child the way that we would raise our child, and her thoughtfulness, her kindness, her authenticity…is so powerful to me. She’s so uninhibited in her giving…It’s just beyond.”

Case in point: Swift, 25, threw her pal an extravagant baby shower last month, complete with a photo booth, fun costumes, and one very star-studded guest list. (Alba, Gigi Hadid, Nina Dobrev, Hailee Steinfeld, Sarah Hyland, and Emma Roberts were just a few of the familiar faces in attendance.)

“How can I put this into words,” King captioned an Instagram photo from the bash. “@taylorswift is not only going to be an exquisite Godmother but one of the best friends one could ask for. Thank you Tay for throwing me such an insanely beautiful baby shower. Less then 12 hours after performing for 100k strong. I love you SO MUCH xx.”

Sienna Miller, Tom Sturridge Split

Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge

Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge have called it quits after four years together, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

“They were in a bit of a rough patch for awhile,” one insider close to the American Sniper actress tells Us of the couple, who started dating quietly in 2011. “Their schedules on top of raising a child started to get to them.”

Sturridge, 29, and Miller, 33, welcomed their daughter, Marlowe, in July 2012. In an interview with London’s Time Out magazine this past January, the actress was frank about the ups and downs of motherhood. “It’s a shock, of course it is,” she said. “Some people find it really easy, but for me I found it really hard.”

While speaking with Vogue in its January 2015 issue, she spoke more affectionately about parenting little Marlowe. “It was like, ‘There you are — that’s what I have been missing,'” she said of raising her first child. “Like we’re both in on something only we know. An amazing sense of being complicit with a little being.”

The Factory Girl star, interestingly enough, hinted at a possible split while discussing her role in Clint Eastwood‘s Oscar-nominated drama American Sniper. “I had a huge amount of empathy for Taya [the widow of Chris Kyle],” Miller told Time Out in the same interview. “To be going through motherhood on her own, not knowing whether her husband would survive every day, I can’t imagine how difficult that would be.”

Still, she spoke fondly about Sturridge in her Vogue cover story, describing the British hunk as a “grounded, intelligent, kind, and intact person.”

Earlier this month, the family went on vacation together in Formentera, Spain, where the actress showcased her lean bikini body.

Miller, who’s experienced her fair share of drama in her previous relationship with Jude Law, noted to the mag that it was “amazing to be around” her beau. “That’s the father of my child,” she gushed to Vogue. “There’s no drama.”

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Are Married

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Are Married
It’s a fairy tale come true for That ’70s Show fans: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are married.

The stars tied the knot this weekend, a source tells PEOPLE. Reps have not yet responded to requests for comment.

Kutcher, 37, and Kunis, 31, met while playing love interests on the Fox sitcom, which ran from 1998 to 2006.

“My first real kiss ever was with him on the show,” she said in W magazine’s August issue, adding, “We all get movie star crushes. I’m marrying mine.”
But their romance didn’t really blossom until years later: The stars began dating in 2012, “got engaged” in February 2014 and welcomed daughter Wyatt Isabelle in October.

“It’s unbelievable,” the Two and a Half Men actor “told Conan O’Brien” in October of becoming a dad. “It’s the greatest thing on Earth.”

The couple spent months keeping fans guessing about whether they were married or not.

Kunis replied “Maybe” when Late Late Show host James Corden asked her if they had tied the knot in March, and Kutcher stirred the rumor pot by posting a Facebook message reading “Happy New Year” from “The Kutchers.”

This is Kunis’s first marriage and Kutcher’s second (his divorce from Demi Moore was finalized in November 2013).
