King Kong star Jack Black is reportedly heading down the aisle after asking his new girlfriend Tanya Haden to marry him. The actor proposed to Haden, an animator, after buying her a $220,000 ring from celebrity jeweler Neil Lane just after Christmas, according to American magazine In Touch. The couple started dating last year after Black split from his longtime comedienne lover Laura Kightlinger.
US pop star Nick Lachey is looking to move on from his broken marriage to Jessica Simpson by buying up property in his native Ohio. The former 98 Degrees singer bought a $300,000 Cincinnati house with his father, John, just before Christmas, according to American magazine In Touch. Father and son plan to spend time renovating the home. The new place couldn't come at a better time for Lachey - the Calabasas, California, home he has been living in since Simpson announced split plans, was sold earlier this week to Malcolm In The Middle star Justin Berfield.
After a year of speculation, Brad Pitt's publicist has confirmed the actor is dating Angelina Jolie, by releasing a statement from both of them confirming the actress is pregnant. The Hollywood couple have been regularly photographed with Jolie's adopted children Maddox and Zahara over the past year, but both have refused to confirm the nature of their relationship. The couple have always vehemently denied they became romantically involved on the set of Mr. And Mrs. Smith in 2004, while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. After weeks of rumors of Jolie's pregnancy, America's People magazine quoted the actress as telling a charity worker in the Dominican Republic, "Yes, I'm pregnant." A statement from Pitt's publicist Cindy Guagenti issued yesterday confirms the actor is set to be a father and refers to him and Jolie as "they" for the first time. Guagenti says, "I can confirm they are expecting. There isn't a lot more to say." Pitt, 42, is currently in the process of legally adopting 30-year-old Jolie's Cambodian son Maddox, four, and Ethiopian daughter Zahara, 10 months and the Girl, Interrupted beauty has petitioned for the tots' surnames to be changed from Jolie to Jolie-Pitt. When asked for Aniston's response to the pregnancy news, a spokesman for the Rumor Has It star says, "Jennifer is not in the practice of commenting on the lives of other people." Meanwhile, Jolie's estranged father, actor Jon Voight says, "Angie is my daughter and I am always wishing the best for her."
