KATE HUDSON & MATTHEW BELLAMY
Kate Hudson is sporting an extra glow-and brand-new bling to match! Matt Bellamy, her boyfriend and father of the baby they're expecting this summer, popped the question with a diamond ring that's estimated to be 7 carats. "She's ecstatic," says her friend. "She was ready and it felt right." Hudson and Bellamy, both 32, began dating last spring. "She loves that he's a musician," says Hudson's friend (he's Muse's frontman). "And Matt protects her. He'd do anything for her." Hudson, who has a son, Ryder, 7, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, 44, confirmed her engagement on the Today show April 27 but has not set a wedding date. "They're not rushing it," explains the friend. "They want to focus on their family first." Another pal says, "She's had such a great pregnancy. This is just the icing on the cake!"
January Jones, 33, is taking on motherhood-alone. "She's really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom," a source close to the Mad Men star tells Scoop. So far Jones, who will star in X-Men: First Class, and her rep are mum on pregnancy details, except to confirm the baby is due in the fall. That hasn't stopped rampant speculation about the baby's father. She hasn't dated anyone publicly since splitting with Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis in, er, January.
HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, GEORGE!
STARS RIFF ON HOLLYWOOD'S MR. NICE GUY GEORGE CLOONEY, WHO HITS THE BIG 5-0 MAY 6
"I accuse him of using botox. I'M 53 AND HE LOOKS 15 YEARS YOUNGER!"
"I would grant him 50 more years of playing basketball with the boys."
"I hope his colonoscopy turns out better than mine!"
-DR. MEHMET OZ
FASHION Dos & Don'ts
The actress and mother is on best-dressed lists, has her own clothing line, Holmes & Yang, and her daughter Suri, 5, is a budding fashionista. Katie Holmes, 32, is also the face of Ann Taylor's Spring 2011 Collection, which gave Scoop the chance to elicit some style tips from her. Listen up!
DON'T be afraid to borrow looks "I raid my friends' closets. I'm always inspired by them. I tend to say, 'Do you mind if I copy you?' "
DO consider your body type "I try to go for things that highlight the waist. I have a sense of what works on me and what doesn't."
DON'T give in to trends "I try not to wear dresses that look like muumuus, even if they happen to be in style. I can't pull it off!"
DO wear things that are comfortable (most of the time!) "I like the comfort of a flat but the look of a heel. You have to give in once in a while."
DO dress your age "I'm so over a cropped T-shirt or anything that shows my belly button. I went down that road; you can only do it when you're young!"
DO seek advice from family "Suri has great taste. I always feel complimented when she says, 'Can I have that when I grow up?' "
DO dress for the weather "I favor a maxi skirt and tank top when it's warm out."
CELEBRITY PROM NIGHT!
THE RUFFLES, THE CORSAGES AND THAT HAIR! STARS SHARE PHOTOS FROM THE BIG DANCE
ca. 1984 Long Island, N.Y.
"I was in ninth grade and went with a senior who was interested in me," says the reality star, 40. "I was just interested in going to the prom!"
1996 Denton, Texas
"I was quiet, so everyone was surprised to see me arrive with such a hot date," the ex-Bachelor, 33, says of Morgan Hightower. "I picked her up in my parents' car and felt like a million bucks."
CARRIE ANN INABA
"Perhaps I shouldn't have cut my own hair," says the Dancing with the Stars judge, 43.
1991 Los Angeles
"Too bad I didn't know about getting roots and eyebrows done back then!" says Spelling, 37, with Ryan Ozar, her first boyfriend.
1990 Los Angeles
"The strap broke on my dress, but I didn't know it until the pictures came out-hence the deep, sexy V!" says the model mogul, 37 (with date Craig Taylor).
DANCING WITH THE STARS
BY THE NUMBERS
THE CONTESTANTS COUNT THEIR STEPS; SCOOP IS KEEPING TRACK OF WHAT MAKES THE SHOW SWING ...
1,200 yards of fabric each season for the women's costumes
3 emergency medical personnel on standby at all live shows
50 pairs of eyelashes applied each week
12 gallons of spray tan used each season
1,008 total judged routines as of April 25
SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA THEN-NOW THESE STARS WANT THEIR INK ERASED
Going, going, gone? Has the bombshell found another idol to worship? Fox's Marilyn Monroe forearm tattoo, which she's said is a reminder "not to let myself be treated so badly by the film industry," is slowly fading. "She's definitely having it removed," says Dr. Will Kirby of Dr. Tattoff in Los Angeles. Don't be surprised if Marilyn lingers on the actress's skin. Adds Kirby: "On average, it will take 10 treatments to remove, a year for it to completely vanish and will cost 10 times the amount it originally cost." Ouch!
Not winning! After she split from her ex Charlie Sheen, Richards hid her ankle ink of his first name under the wings of a fairy tattoo.
Since the actress split from Tony Parker in November, Longoria has been covering up the wrist tattoo of her wedding anniversary with makeup.
The Fighter star, who had two tats on his arm removed, said he had his kids witness the painful laser procedure to deter them from making his mistake.
