On April 29, 2011, all eyes will be on Prince William as he weds his future princess Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey. This royal wedding, however, is not the first big event to take place on this late April day.

April 29, 1967, Muhammad Ali stripped of his boxing crown after refusing to join the Army citing religious reasons.

David Arquette says he decided to be honest with 6-year-old daughter Coco when his marriage with Courteney Cox hit its
"We went to a beach and had a picnic," Arquette told Howard Stern on his Sirius Satellite Radio show Tuesday. "[I] explained to her that we're grownups, and a lot of the time when grownups are growing up, they need to figure out their lives. ... Sometimes that takes each other having a little space."

Howard Stern and his new bride are spending a lot of post-nuptials time together – running.
That's because Beth Ostrosky, 36, is training for Sunday's New York City marathon.
"The greatest thing is that he's a runner and he's been running most of the mileage with me," she told PEOPLE at the Animal Fair Magazine 8th Annual Halloween Pet Costume Party in New York City this week. "I have him all weekends for the runs, and that's huge."
Ostrosky, who has been running every day since she married the radio jock at a star-studded wedding on Oct. 3, says her husband's encouragement is helping her stay focused on her goal.

Has the spark gone out of their relationship, now what Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky have finally tied the knot? No way, she says. "It's only gotten better."
The best part of married life? "Howard calls me his wife now," the giddy newlywed told PEOPLE Tuesday at the Saks Fifth Avenue launch of their annual Key to the Cure shopping weekend. "It's the first week, so [that's] really exciting."
The two were wed in a romantic ceremony at Manhattan's Le Cirque restaurant Oct. 3 – while celeb guests Kelly Ripa, Billy Joel, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman looked on.
So does Ostrosky have any tips for other brides-to-be? "Don't sweat the small stuff," she said. "In the end, the color of the flowers doesn't matter!"

Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky's wedding last Friday at Le Cirque restaurant in Manhattan had guests both in tears and laughter, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue, on sale Friday.
Comedian Jimmy Kimmel kicked off the ceremony with a poem in which he teased Stern, 54, for his early bedtime habits and love for the TV show The Bachelor.
During the self-written vows, in which Stern told Ostrosky, 36, she was the love of his life, "People were crying," says a guest. "The vows were from each others' hearts."

After taking their time to walk down the aisle, Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky really got it right when they were married Friday night in New York City – amid a glittering crowd that included the Trumps, Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos (who officiated), Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman (together again, apparently), Chevy Chase, Joan Rivers, Barbara Walters and Billy Joel, who performed two songs.
The couple's secret? Planning.
It started "last December," said Elli Jafari, general manager of the midtown restaurant Le Cirque. "We really kept the secret well. Even my best friends didn't know about it."

Don't believe the hype!
Despite a slew of wedding reports, it seems Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky are still single.
"We are not married," Ostrosky told PEOPLE Thursday night at The Bridge, a golf club in Bridgehampton, New York, where Sotheby's unveiled works by artist Damien Hirst for an upcoming auction.
So what sparked all the wedding talk last week? She said the happy couple hosted a "family celebration" at their Hamptons home on Aug. 23 – prompting the press to assume it was the big day.
"It was a beautiful, beautiful event," said the model, who has been engaged to the shock jock since last Valentine's Day. "I wore a white dress and Howard wore white pants and a blue shirt. But it was just a celebration of the wedding. The real thing is in October."

Unlike Chris Noth's Mr. Big character in Sex and the City – who left Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw waiting at the altar – Howard Stern is not experiencing any last-minute change of heart, according to his soon-to-be bride.
Although, as far as that ever-elusive wedding date is concerned, "Honestly, we haven't figured it out," Beth Ostrosky insisted at Sunday's Hamptons premiere of the movie musical Mama Mia, sponsored by Blackberry.
Still, Ostrosky, who turns 36 on Tuesday, tells Hamptons magazine, "Howard and I were on the lawn the other day, hanging out, saying that we absolutely cannot wait to get married. There are no pre-wedding jitters. It's all excitement and joy."

Still intent on marching down the aisle together, Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky have once again revised plans as to where their wedding will take place.
Whereas recently the bride-to-be – whose engagement to the Sirius Radio star turned 1 year old on Valentine's Day last month – told PEOPLE that the ceremony would occur in New York's Hamptons, that rural setting may now be swapped for an urban one.
"We're going to get our friends together at a restaurant, very low-key … in the city," Stern, 54, holding hands with his 35-year-old fiancé, told PEOPLE at Thursday's Cinema Society and GQ screening of Stop-Loss, in Manhattan.
No further details were forthcoming, as Stern, fresh from two glasses of wine, said he needed to get to the men's room. Fast.
