Scoop: Travoltas’ baby news a long time coming 

Fans of John Travolta and Kelly Preston were thrilled to hear them confirm the news that they are “expecting a new addition to our family,” announced Wednesday in a statement. Though they didn’t give details, a Star magazine source said 47-year-old Kelly “is about three months pregnant.”

“Both she and John are absolutely over the moon,” the source said. “They knew in their hearts that the time was right for this to happen.”

While some might assume that the timing had to do with the tragic death of son Jett, 16, early last year (the couple also has a daughter, Ella, 10), the “Pulp Fiction” star made no secret of wanting a big family even before his loss. In 2007, he told People magazine the couple were “trying for a third, but that depends on Kelly’s schedule.”

“I grew up with six kids in my family. I thought I would have five or six,” John, 56, said.

While that may not be in the cards, we’re happy to know that a family that has suffered such heartbreak will get to experience the joy of a new life.

Kendra: Family Planning?

Also hoping for a larger family, if Life&Style magazine is to be believed, is former Playmate turned mom Kendra Wilkinson. Embarrassed by a sex tape that recently surfaced — and then even more embarrassed by buzz that she was the one trying to get it released — the “Girls Next Door” star is evidently hoping a second child will help take hubby Hank Baskett’s mind off the scandal.

“They’ve been trying for a second child for a while. And Kendra hopes it will happen sooner rather than later,” an insider told the tabloid. “Kendra knows she upset Hank over all this sex-tape stuff, and she wants it all to go away. Focusing on another baby would help.”

Right. When has having a baby to save a marriage ever not worked?

Saw That Coming

Audrina Patridge and Ryan Cabrera ended their rocky relationship. The couple got together in January and by last month were already tiffing in public.

“She ended things about a week ago,” a source told People magazine. “There were issues in their relationship. But a lot stems from his partying ways.”

Wasting no time, the singer chatted up a brunette who resembled Audrina on Tuesday at L.A.’s Trousdale.

“He was grabbing her hands, whispering to her, smiling, and they were laughing together,” an onlooker said.

Nevertheless, another source said, “He still wants to work things out.”

Well, he might want to avoid being spotted flirting with other women.

Soldiering On

No doubt one question has been burning in your mind for, oh, months now: What will be the theme of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's birthday party? Well, your sleepless nights are over: In Touch magazine breathlessly reports that "Shiloh wants a soldier-themed birthday party!"

The military-minded tot turns 4 on May 27; older brother “Maddox had a soldier-themed party when he turned 4, so Shiloh wants the same,” explains a source.

“She wants boys’ toys, since she’s such a little tomboy," adds the insider. "Brad also bought Shiloh a jeep that is safe for kids, and he’s thinking of getting her a toy ATV that she can drive around the property.” Other gifts are said to include toy guns, boots, and a bed shaped like a spaceship.

Aw, man! An ATV and a spaceship-shaped bed? We wish Brangelina would adopt us!
