Hey, as a new father, I thought I'd start a forum on babies and children in general.

I don't really have anything to say... yet.

Angelina Jolie has finally confirmed she's pregnant with twins after Kung Fu Panda co-star Jack Black accidentally gave away her big secret at the Cannes Film Festival in France. During an interview with TV show Today to promote their new film, Black joked about Jolie's baby bump. Pointing at the actress' bulging belly, Black quipped, "You're gonna have as many (kids) as (TV family) the Brady Bunch when you have these." And when interviewer Natalie Morales pressed Jolie for a comeback, the sexy star said, "Yeah, yeah, we've confirmed that already. Well, Jack's just confirmed it actually." The babies will be Jolie's fifth and sixth children, and her second and third biological kids with partner Brad Pitt. The couple has three adopted children, Maddox, Pax and Zahara, and their first natural child, Shiloh, will turn two this month.

Cruise Fights to Silence Baby Boutique Owners


Tom Cruise has slapped the owners of a top Los Angeles baby boutique with a cease and desist letter, accusing them of going public with purchases he and wife Katie Holmes have made without their permission. The movie star's legal team has fired off documents to the bosses of Petit Tresor, warning them to stop talking to the media about private Cruise family matters. According to the documents, obtained by TMZ.com, Cruise was particularly upset when store bosses allegedly leaked false information suggesting the actors have spent more than $350,000 on wardrobe items for their daughter Suri in the two years since her birth. The lawyers insist no one at the store should "say anything (whether true or false) about Mr. Cruise and Ms. Holmes' shopping habits."

Berry Expects Motherhood To Boost Her Career
29 May 2008 12:10 PM, PDT

Halle Berry expects her newfound motherhood to boost her chances of landing more Oscar-winning roles - because having a baby has killed off her sex symbol status.

Despite picking up a Academy Award for Monster's Ball in 2002, Berry claims pre-pregnancy, her career was held back by her reputation as a big screen beauty.

And now she is a mother to two-month-old Nahla with model Gabriel Aubry, Berry is counting on more edgy movie offers

She says, "I feel having a baby will open up a whole new world for me. I think I'll actually find better roles, because I've gotten past being the ingenue and sex symbol."

But studio bosses will have to get used to a harder-to-come-by Berry - she plans to take much longer gaps between jobs, so she can be a proper mother.

The 41-year-old adds, "I'm definitely going to work less. I used to put so much pressure on myself to succeed that it often made me very unhappy in my personal life. I felt on the verge of burning out three or four years ago."

Jolie Sacrifices Toned Physique For Motherhood
1 June 2008 7:32 AM, PDT

Angelina Jolie is no longer the toned action star she used to be - because motherhood has changed her body forever.

The Tomb Raider actress, who is expecting twins with partner Brad Pitt, admits she can no longer endure tough physical workouts in preparation for movie roles.

However, the 32-year-old insists training for long hours is nothing compared to her busy life as a mother of four.

She says, "I used to be able to train all the time, but it's different now.

"My body has changed; I've had a baby and I've breast-fed, although bringing up four children is harder than making an action movie."

Jole Forgives Black For Baby Blunder
3 June 2008 12:07 AM, PDT

Actress Angelina Jolie has forgiven Jack Black for telling the world about her pregnancy.

The star, 32, confirmed she is expecting twins during an interview at the Cannes Film Festival last month, after her Kung Fu Panda co-star accidentally let slip the news to a TV reporter.

But Black insists Jolie was relieved the news was made public.

He says, "Later she told me she was relieved because she and Brad (Pitt) didn't want to hold in the secret."

And Black insists Jolie never told him she was expecting: "I think my wife told me. She'd just read it in some rag. Then I thought that was common knowledge."
