A double miracle is in store for John Travolta and Kelly Preston: They’re expecting twins! The longtime couple, still mourning the death of 16-year-old son Jett last year, will welcome two boys into the family, Star magazine reported.
“They were ecstatic when they thought they were having just one baby,” a source told the tabloid. “Now that there will be two, they can barely contain their happiness!”
Kelly, an expectant mom at 47 (the Travoltas also have daughter Ella, 10), reportedly underwent in vitro fertilization, which ups the odds of multiple kids.
“She’s having the time of her life looking at all the cute little outfits and toys online!” the insider said.
As of press time, the couple hadn’t confirmed the news. But hey, Star was actually right about the pregnancy in the first place, so maybe they’re two for two.
Not Mr. ‘Wright’
Low-key celeb couple Serena Williams and Common have broken up, according to In Touch magazine. After more than two years together, “they just grew apart,” a source told the tabloid.
The tennis star and the rapper-actor made their last red-carpet appearance together in April, at, appropriately enough, the premiere of “Date Night.” But Common was flying solo in mid-May while on a cruise to promote his new flick, “Just Wright.” “He was a big hit with the ladies,” a source said.
And at the flick’s NYC premiere, his date was not Serena but ... his mom.
Bummer. We liked them as a couple!
Mindy McCready is hospitalized in Florida, and her mother said it’s because she tried to commit suicide. The troubled country singer allegedly mixed amphetamines and muscle relaxers.
“I tried to question her, but she was in and out of consciousness,” Gayle McCready Inge told Radar Online. “I wanted to take her to the hospital so there wouldn’t be media attention, but as I started to get going, Mindy said she was having trouble breathing.
“I asked Mindy, ‘How many pills did you take?’ She said maybe 25. I said, ‘That’s it,’ and that’s when I called 911.
“Mindy told the 911 people that she absolutely didn’t care if she lost her life.”
The “Celebrity Rehab” alum has attempted suicide before — “maybe 12 or 13 times,” according to her mother, who added, “I try to tell people all the time there’s something terribly, terribly wrong, but there is no talking to Mindy. She is in denial.”
But Mindy’s attorney called talk of a suicide attempt “irresponsible.”
“My understanding is she took a mild pain reliever because she hurt her foot and she had a bad reaction to the medicine,” the attorney said.
We weren’t there, so we can’t presume to know what actually happened. But that explanation sounds ... well ... like denial.
As she prepares to turn over a new leaf, Lindsay Lohan is also turning to a new shade. Tuesday, the long-ago-redhead lightened her recently dark tresses to blonde at Andy LeCompte Salon in West Hollywood — which took her five hours.
The salon sortie was LiLo's first outing since being ordered by a judge to don an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet on Monday, TMZ reports; she'd been holed up with her camp at a Beverly Hills hotel (this girl does have her own house in L.A., right?).
After emerging with golden tresses around 10 PM, she hit her fave haunt, Chateau Marmont, where she hung with friends and stuck to drinking water.
