Liv Tyler confirmed to be expecting second child with beau Dave Gardner

The future couple first met through mutual acquaintance Kate Moss several years ago, and she has been dating the sports and entertainment manager, who is best friends with David Beckham, since earlier this year.

Rumours had been swirling for weeks, with the 37-year-old Leftovers star adding fuel to the speculation by wearing baggy clothing while out in public in recent times.

Just last Friday she covered up in a heavy woollen coat and held her handbag over her stomach when she stepped out in New York. 

And it has now been confirmed Liv Tyler is expecting a baby with her boyfriend Dave Gardner.

The couple are said to be over the moon to be having their first child together.

Jason Derulo Reveals Why He Broke Up With Jordin Sparks

There was a lot of tension in the relationship for a lot of different reasons,” Jason said on On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “Every relationship has ups and downs. There was a lot of pressures of marriage. There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that that just weighed on our relationship over time. When you stop having more good times than bad bad times, it’s time to call it quits. It becomes something that is unhealthy.”The pressures of marriage began when he wrote Marry Me, which was immediately followed by a ton of questions about when he would propose to Jordin (which he did in the music video). He told Ryan Seacrest that she wanted to get married . . . but he wasn’t ready.

“Yeah, and to be fair, [the pressure] was not just from her either,” Jason said. “It was kind of from everybody. That’s not the sole reason, but it definitely played a part.”

Kendall Jenner takes the plunge in Givenchy playsuit as she walks the runway at Paris Fashion Week

Kendall Jenner has def. been dominating runways left and right during Fashion Week so it only made sense she could be found showing off her catwalk at Givenchy on Sunday.

The rising supermodel was lucky enough to put the label's silky, studded brown romper on display, though the real pièce de résistance were here thigh-high boots!
Anyway, while Kendall was busy concentrating on her fierce face (or her family staring at her), she took a bit of a trip during the finale.

Vanessa Williams Is ENGAGED To Her Boyfriend Jim Skrip!

Vanessa Williams recently announced that she's engaged to her boyfriend Jim Skrip and the way she announced it was the best way ever! 

It happened this past Friday while she was on Queen Latifah's show!  

The host noticed the lady's big and beautiful ring and the Queen said

"Vanessa, I have been trying to have a conversation ladies and gents, but I'm blinded by the light coming from that bling ring on your finger. Is there something that we need to know around here?"

And that caused Vanessa to start really blushing! She then said:
 "Oh sorry darling. I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen. I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings on this trip."

Vanessa had previously explained where she had met Jim in an interview where she said:

"He's a guy I met a year-and-a-half ago when I was on vacation with my daughter in Egypt. You go across the world to find somebody who's six hours away. He was in real estate and, back in the day, he was an accountant."

Lionel Richie SLAMS Justin Bieber And Miley Cyrus!

Lionel Richie is definitely a legend, and thus deserves to have his opinion taken very seriously! 
Richie  thinks that Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus have made amateur music acceptable in the mainstream!He also believes their  music  will NOT stand the test of time!
 Lionel says these new kids on the block ain't got nothing when compared to the stars in his prime including Madonna and Michael Jackson

Here's what he said:

"The beautiful part of where we were - we had shock value. But what came with shock value was hit after hit after hit. Madonna was outrageous - but she had a catalog of music that was unbelievable. At the end of all the theatrics with Michael (Jackson), he had nothing but the most fabulous catalog. Now, we've got a lot of theatrics… but where's the song that is going to stick around forever?… Twenty years from now, let's take anybody - where's the body of work? I'm going to judge you not by your popularity but by your longevity, your staying records. I'm thinking about Miley, Justin Bieber. We've made amateur music mainstream. There's a difference between a stylist and a singer. Everybody can sing! Go to karaoke, there are some guys seriously singing their a**es off! But do they have a unique voice, or distinct voice?"
