Alicia Keys Is Expecting “A Gift From God”

In an interview for UK’s Daily Mirror, a pregnant Alicia Keys, 29, spoke of her delight at the prospect of becoming a first-time mother.

I cant wait to become a mom,” Alicia gushed. “No question. It’s the most beautiful gift in the world. Truly a gift from God”. She also spoke of her feelings for her own mother. “I have an amazing mother – she is a best friend to me. And I would like to be the same to my child.”

This will be a third child for Keys’ fiance, Swizz Beatz, who is apparently just as thrilled about the baby. “Everyone says we will make a great family,” he stated. Beatz, 39, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, is considered one of best producers in the music industry and has been the hit-maker for such big names as Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg and Whitney Houston.

Keith Urban: Fatherhood Is “Absolutely Beautiful”

Fatherhood seems to be a perfect fit for country crooner Keith Urban.

Speaking at last night’s CMA Music Festival in Nashville, the 42-year-old musician couldn’t help but gush about his darling daughter Sunday Rose.

“It’s always something new,” Keith tells OK!. “That’s what I love about it. Maybe dads are different, but to me it’s coming on like ‘oh my God, that’s my daughter.’ It’s beautiful. It’s absolutely beautiful. It’s great.”

So are Keith and his wife Nicole Kidman trying for a baby brother or sister for Sunday, who turns 2 next month?

“I’m not not trying,” he says.

Madonna’s Kabbalah Kids

Madonna‘s four children – Lourdes, 13, Rocco, 9, David, 4, and Mercy, 4 – were spotted arriving at the Kabbalah center in London, England on Friday (June 11).

The Queen of Pop’s three youngest children were sporting all-white clothes as they entered their place of worship. Lourdes kept it low-key in jeans and a tee.

Madonna and her BFF Gwyneth Paltrow have recently made headlines. Reportedly, the A-lister pals have been feuding, but a spokesperson for Paltrow said, “It’s not true. They are still friends.”

Amanda Peet’s Baby Dilemma – How Old Is Too Old?

At a recent launch party for DumbDumb, Amanda Peet shared her thoughts on having another child with Us. The 38-year-old actress has a 3-year-old daughter, Frances, and gave birth to her second child, Molly, in April. She is now keen to try for one more, but her screenwriter husband, David Benioff, would like to wait three years. However, Amanda says “We’ll be too old at that point.”

It would seem that Peet – who has appeared in movies such as Something’s Gotta Give and The Whole Ten Yards – is aware that her biological clock is ticking and must consider the risks of conceiving past the age of 40.

There are many precedents for celebrities becoming moms at an older age – Kelly Preston is pregnant at 47 and Céline Dion is expecting twins at 42. However, Halle Berry – who gave birth to daughter Nahla in 2008 at age 40 – warns “don’t look at celebrities who are doing it and think, Oh, it’s easy. It’s really not.”

Dr Alan B. Copperman of Mount Sinai Medical Center points out some of the problems. “At 40 there is only a 10 percent chance of conception and at 45, it’s just 2 percent.” Add to that the often needed fertility treatments, preterm labor, dangerously high blood pressure and diabetes, and you can understand Ms. Peet’s concerns.

Nelson Mandela’s Great-Granddaughter Died After Pre-World Cup Concert

As the World Cup begins, Nelson Mandela, 91, grieves the death of his 13-year-old great-granddaughter, Zenani.

Mandela gathered yesterday with devastated family members after the teen was killed in a drunken-driving accident as she returned from the star-studded pre-World Cup concert, where Alicia Keys and many others performed.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation said the man arrested in connection with the accident was a relative of the teenager, although his identity and the details of the female passenger have remained private. “He lost control of the vehicle and it collided with a barricade,” said a police spokesperson.

“Zenani recently expressed the ambition to become a plastic surgeon,” a source said. “Most of all she loved to read and write which she did daily.”

Mandela was a strong supporter of having the World Cup in his homeland, even making a personal appeal to the Cup bidding committee in 2004. In the wake of Zenani’s death, the former South African leader did not attend the opening ceremonies of the World Cup on Friday morning.

Mandela’s eldest son was killed in a 1969 car accident, while he was imprisoned.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Mandela family.
