KATY PERRY & JOHN MAYER
Since John Mayer started dating Katy Perry last summer, he has vacationed with her in exotic locales, spent Christmas with her family and stood by her side as they watched President Obama get sworn in. Now the couple are taking the next big step: They’re planning to move in together. A source who has spent time with the rocker and the pop star tells Scoop that Perry, 28, and Mayer, 35, were scheduled to tour “a handful of homes” in the L.A. area on Jan. 27.
Settling down is a big step for the Grammy winner, whose bad-boy reputation for loving (and leaving) starlets has often outshone his cred as a gifted musician-and a major indicator of how seriously he is taking his relationship with Perry, says another source. When Mayer split from Jennifer Aniston, 44, nearly four years ago, an insider said his reluctance to move in with the movie star was a key reason behind their breakup. “He always insisted he needed his own place to make music, but clearly that’s changed,” the insider says of Mayer, who has his own homes in Montana and L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. But, says the second source, “he mostly hangs out at Katy’s place in L.A.”
The couple’s nesting news comes on the heels of a PDA-filled trip to Washington, D.C., where Perry headlined the Kids’ Inaugural Concert on Jan. 19. They spent three days touring the city, and Perry even called Mayer her “beau” and a “major cutie” in personal snapshots of the weekend she shared with Vogue.com. “They’ve both acted very private in the past, but they seem comfortable about going public with their relationship now,” says the second source. “They really seem very happy.”
“We are planting our own herbs, fruits and vegetables,” Bundchen said. “My favorite part!”
Yes, a moat. It will collect rainwater to be reused for irrigation and in other parts of the home.
Their kids (Benjamin, 3, Vivian, 2 months, and Jack, 5, his son with Bridget Moynahan) will have a pool and a castle-themed playground.
“We are excited to use solar power as the main source of electricity in our home,” Bundchen said.
After three years of construction, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s Brentwood, Calif., estate is finally move-in ready. The 22,000-sq.-ft. eco-friendly home, worth a reported $20 million, boasts 8 bedrooms, a wine cellar and a gym. Outside there’s a pool and a play castle. “We are an active family,” Bundchen, 32, told PEOPLE, “so we’ll spend a lot of time outdoors!”

FROM HER CLOTHES TO HER CRAVINGS, AN INSIDER’S GUIDE
To manage her severe morning sickness, Kate-who popped into a London Pret a Manger Jan. 25-has reportedly been nibbling lavender biscuits and figs. “The magnesium and vitamin B6 in the figs can help curb nausea,” says Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women OB/GYN Dr. David Zepeda.
THE NAPPY BRIGADE
When the royal bundle arrives, Kate will be in good posh-mummy company: Cousin-in-law Autumn Phillips and pals Marina Fogle and Rose van Cutsem, says an insider, “will have lots of advice.”

BETHENNY DIVORCE UPDATE
Countering her own filing, Bethenny Frankel‘s ex Jason Hoppy, 41, has reportedly also asked for primary custody of their daughter Bryn, 2. “Bethenny thinks she can steamroll anyone who gets in her way,” says a Hoppy source. “Jason is making it clear he will challenge her every step.” For now the former couple are still living together-Hoppy’s sleeping in the “man cave”-and the split could be fodder for the reality star’s next project. According to a source, Frankel, 42, is writing a self-help book for women.
