Well, what a coincidence! On the heels of Owen Wilson’s announcement that his girlfriend is expecting a child comes a report that Kate Hudson, his ex-girlfriend, also is expecting a baby, with her beau, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy.
“It was not planned, but they are excited and embracing it,” a source told Us magazine of the actress, 31, and rocker, 32, who have been dating for about nine months.
Kate has a son, Ryder, 7, with her ex-husband, Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson (guess she digs rockers). “She is happy for Ryder to finally have a brother or sister,” the source said.
“They couldn’t be more excited,” a source confirms to People magazine. “Kate is really happy. She was always excited to have kids again at some point.”
Think there will be play dates with baby Wilson in the future?
Three years after Heath Ledger’s untimely death, Michelle Williams said she and their 5-year-old daughter, Matilda, still have “a hole in our life.”
“Of course the natural inclination is to want to fill it and make it disappear,” the “Blue Valentine” actress told Marie Claire magazine, “but what I’ve come to recently is that it’s impossible. Nothing will fit in that hole because what we want back we can’t get, which is this one person. I’m not going to rush anything and scamper around like a mad person and make myself crazy. I’m trying to be respectful of the absence. I’m not trying to fill it up. It is what it is.”
After the “Dark Knight” actor passed away, she said, “I didn’t work for a year. I needed to gather myself and put my life back together.”
But while she has returned to acting, the idea of wading into the dating pool is more complicated.
“The idea that you can get everything you want in one person is destructive,” the wise-beyond-her-years 30-year-old said. “And maybe when you accept that the number is closer to 50 or 60 or 70 percent, that’s when you can start to make some progress in choosing the right person.”
The former “Dawson’s Creek” star went on to say, “My poor mom really wants me to meet someone,” before alluding to whispers about an alleged romance with her “Blue Valentine” co-star — “I think she wanted to believe the Ryan Gosling rumor more than anybody.”
Not more than us!
Speaking of Ryan Gosling, actress Blake Lively also was recently linked to him, after her split from “Gossip Girl” co-star Penn Badgley — but the other night she was spotted cozying up to Leonardo DiCaprio.
At actor Jeremy Renner’s birthday bash Saturday, “they were on the balcony together for an hour,” an onlooker told the New York Post. “They were standing close in a corner and looked like there was a lot of flirting. Later, they were together again by the bar.”
Leo’s longtime girlfriend, supermodel Bar Refaeli, was not around. But she need not worry, a pal said, explaining that Blake and Leo “are just friends and Leo left with [“Entourage” star] Kevin Connolly.” Blake’s rep told E! the talk of a Leo love connection was “not at all true.”
And oddly enough, we believe her. Honestly, we can understand why someone would see Leo and Blake together and assume they were flirting. But chatting with someone at a party does not a scandal make!
