FAST TAKES

Seems like late-night feedings and diaper changes came as no shock to NAOMI WATTS, new mom to 7-week-old son Alexander. So what's most surprising about motherhood? "The equipment and packing when you travel," she says. "So much luggage!"

When rapper EVE stopped by TAO Las Vegas's hospitality suite Sept. 8, she told pals she had just cut off her alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet (having completed a court-ordered monitoring period for a DUI arrest). She celebrated with a glass of champagne.

On a break from filming Bachelor No. 2 in Boston Sept. 5, KATE HUDSON gave an impromptu piano concert at the Fairmont Copley Plaza's Oak Room bar. She sat with son Ryder, 3, and picked out a few ditties for fellow diners.

A PASSION FOR ASHTON
DEMI MOORE wouldn't dream of missing New York Fashion Week while she's in town, but she won't play fashionista at the expense of spending time with her husband, ASHTON KUTCHER. (The pair are in New York City while Kutcher films What Happens in Vegas . . . with CAMERON DIAZ.) On Sept. 6 Moore hit hot spot Socialista for a fete for stylist RACHEL ZOE but left by 11 p.m. Why the early exit? "I'm going to see the husband," Moore told a fellow partygoer. "It's time to snuggle." Two days later she and Kutcher took their cuddling to the catwalk while catching the Diesel show. Said Moore: "You've gotta have priorities!"

PARIS HILTON'S BABY BLABBER
CHRISTINA AGUILERA may not have officially announced she's expecting, but thanks to PARIS HILTON, she doesn't have to. After touching the singer's stomach at a pre-VMA party at Las Vegas's LAX nightclub Sept. 8, Hilton grabbed a microphone before a packed house, telling the stunned mom-to-be, "Congratulations to the most beautiful pregnant woman in the world. You're gorgeous!" Though Aguilera may not have appreciated the shout-out, that didn't stop Hilton from voicing her support for her other pregnant pal Nicole Richie. "She's going to be a great mom," Hilton said at Magic last week. "She loves kids—she's always wanted to have five."
