, 38, in 2002 - is due to give birth in June, according to Us Weekly. While representatives for Stefani have yet to comment, the singer's father Douglas is quoted as saying, "We are delighted."

John Fears Wedding Sabotage
Sir Elton John
fears his wedding to David Furnish
will be hijacked by anti-gay protesters later today and has hired an army of undercover cops to police the occasion. The hitmaker was horrified when Northern Ireland's first gay civil unions were marred by demonstrating Christian fundamentalist groups earlier this week, and has determined not to let anyone ruin his special day. A police insider tells British newspaper The Sun, "We don't want a hint of trouble. Even just anyone trying to throw an egg." John and Furnish will exchange vows in the same Windsor, England, venue as British royal Prince Charles
and Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall
, who wed in April. A spokesman for Thames Valley police said on Friday: "Any extra policing costs incurred as a result of the event will not be met by the residents of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. They will be met by the organizers."
Fox Heading 'Back to the Future'?
Michael J. Fox
is heading Back To The Future
for a fourth time-traveling movie. The actor, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, admits he's in negotiations for a final film in the series - but only if they make his character as old as he is in real life. The former Spin City
star wants to take over Christopher Lloyd
's eccentric scientist character, Doc, in the sequel. He tells movie website Moviehole.net, "The only way it would work would be if I played Doc. I'm 44-years-old now and I'm not interested in running around on skateboards! I think after 1, 2 and 3 we all kind of felt we had done it. And I think if they did it again now they would do it with a younger cast and just do a different realisation of it, which would be fun."
Allen and Travolta Obsessed by Johansson's Love Life
and John Travolta
are taking an unhealthy interest in Scarlett Johansson
's love life, according to the actress. The 21-year-old beauty, who stars in Allen's new movie Match Point
and appeared in A Love Song for Bobby Long
alongside Travolta, is dumbfounded by their obsession, and puts it down to their fatherly feelings towards her. She says, "You know what cracks me up? He (Allen) is fascinated with my love life. And John Travolta
's even worse than Woody, he wants to know everything."
Zellweger Slams Chesney Reunion Reports
Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger
has slammed reports she is dating estranged husband Kenny Chesney
again, insisting any times they have met recently were to discuss divorce proceedings. The Chicago
star, 36, and country singer, 37, split in September, just four months after their whirlwind Caribbean wedding. Zellweger subsequently filed for divorce, citing "fraud" as the reason for the split. Last week, reports suggested the couple were reuniting after they were spotted dining together. However the actress' representative insists the pair remain on friendly terms and were just discussing details of their divorce. Her publicist tells the New York Post, "She and Kenny are not getting back together and they are not dating. For any couple who change the state of their relationship, there are loose ends to tie up and discussions to be had."
Anderson Furious Over Pole Dance Edit
Sexy actress Pamela Anderson
has slammed bosses of Us TV network NBC for editing her pole dance out of a broadcast of Sir Elton John
's Las Vegas stage extravaganza. The Caesars Palace show aired on December 12 without the segment in which John sang "The Bitch Is Back" while an oversized screen behind him displayed a scantily clad Anderson. She says, "This really bothers me. Elton cut me out. I was in the previews. If you cover your nipples then you're clothed." The actress moves suggestively in the video, which was included in preview copies sent out to critics. After an assessment by its standards and practices department the network decided the material didn't mesh with the 8pm time slot.
Carrey Strips Stranger To Feel Festive
rendered a guest partially nude during an interview with fellow comedian David Letterman
on Monday night, when he stole a red sweater off a stranger in order to feel more "festive." The Canadian screen star appeared on US program Late Show With David Letterman
to promote new movie Fun With Dick And Jane
, but soon began complaining he didn't feel "dressed-up enough." He then left the stage and searched through the audience until he found a man wearing a red festive sweater. After removing the top - leaving the man bare-chested - Carrey returned to the stage and continued with the interview. Meanwhile, Letterman's rival Jay Leno
also enjoyed the company of a guest in holiday attire last night; Pamela Anderson
appeared on his chat show wearing a skimpy version of a Santa Claus outfit.
Schwarzenegger Hits Back at Home City
has instructed officials in his Austrian home city of Graz to remove his name from the city's soccer stadium, after local politicians attacked his decision to execute California gang leader Stanley 'Tookie' Williams. The local Green party raised a petition to strip Arnie of his Austrian citizenship and rename the Arnold Schwarzenegger
Stadium, after he denied clemency to Williams - who had done much to stem gang violence in Los Angeles during his time in jail. In response, the California Governor has demanded his name is removed and handed back the city's Ring of Honor, given to him in 1999. In a letter to the city council, he writes, "In all likelihood, during my term as governor, I will have to make similar and equally difficult decisions. In order to spare the responsible politicians of the city of Graz further concern, I withdraw from them as of this day the right to use my name in association with the Liebenauer Stadium." He adds of the Ring of Honor, "As the official Graz appears to no longer accept me as one of their own, this ring has lost its meaning and value to me. It is already in the mail."
Cruise's Visit to Secret Scientology Compound
's devotion to Scientology was reportedly nurtured at a low-key southern California desert compound which catered to his needs 24 hours a day. The Mission: Impossible
star undertook intensive study and counseling at the compound in the late 1980s and early 1990s, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper. Behind the guarded gates of the 500-acre compound near Hemet, Cruise had a personal supervisor to oversee his studies in a private course room, claim former members. Bruce Hines
, who left Scientology in 2001 after three decades in the church, tells the publication, "I was there for eight years and nobody stayed long at all, except for Tom Cruise
and Nicole Kidman
during that period." The ex-church members say Cruise stayed in a bungalow near a golf course and had a special staff to prepare his meals, do his laundry and handle other tasks around the clock.
