Posted on

BROOKE’S BABY: Brooke Shields is expecting another child, PEOPLE confirmed. The 40-year-old actress and her husband, writer Chris Henchy, will welcome their second child in the spring, according to her rep. The couple, who wed in 2001, have a 2-year-old daughter, Rowan (whose birth prompted Shields to write a book, Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression in which she revealed how anti-depressants helped with her condition). Just last month, while appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show Shields revealed that she hoped for another baby. “I’ve always wanted more than one child,” she said.

SINGLE SHERIDAN: Nicollette Sheridan and her fiancé, actor Nicklas Soderblom, have called it quits, her rep told PEOPLE exclusively. “Nicollette Sheridan and Nicklas Soderblom have parted ways after a year and a half,” according to a statement from Sheridan’s publicist, Nicole Perna. “They ask that you respect their privacy at this time.” The Desperate Housewives star, 41, and Soderblom became engaged last winter. On Oct. 15, while hosting the Los Angeles Red Cross Celebrity Auction at a private home in Beverly Hills, Sheridan laughed off rumors that she and her fiancé, were calling it quits. “They should get the facts right before they print things,” Sheridan, who attended the affair with Soderblom, told PEOPLE.

JACKSON FAMILY: Janet Jackson denied recent claims that she has a secret daughter from her relationship with ex-husband James DeBarge. “I do not have a child and all allegations saying so are false,” Jackson, 39, said in a statement released to Access Hollywood. Last week, Young DeBarge, the brother of Jackson’s ex-husband, claimed the couple have an 18-year-old daughter named Renee who is living with Jackson’s oldest sister, Rebbie. “James and the Jackson family kept everything real close, real tight,” Young DeBarge said on New York radio station Hot 97. “No one really knew how it was working out until things kind of surfaced.”

REYNOLDS’S RAP: Al Reynolds, the husband of The View costar Star Jones, was arrested shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday for allegedly driving with a suspended license. Police pulled over the former Wall Street trader on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for an improper lane change. Reynolds was ultimately issued a “desk appearance ticket” his spokesman, Brad Zeifman, told PEOPLE. As for reports that Jones never appeared at the police station despite a call from her husband, Zeifman denied the claims. “Mr. Reynolds immediately called his wife, Star Jones Reynolds, who, in fact, arrived within minutes after receiving the call,” Zeifman said. Reynolds, 36, and Jones, 43, were married last November.

Jolie with Zahara and Maddox
ANGELINA’S ANNOUNCEMENT: One thing Angelina Jolie has realized since becoming a mom to Maddox, 4, and Zahara, 9 months is that she wants to adopt again. “I’m planning on it,” Jolie told PEOPLE recently. So what corner of the globe will she adopt from next? “There are so many wonderful places. There are many parts of Asia, Africa, South America, so sooner or later I’ll end up everywhere, I’m sure.” Her son Maddox is from Cambodia, while Zahara was adopted from an Ethiopian orphanage. So is Maddox old enough to understand what adoption is all about? “We’ve always addressed it,” Jolie said. “I say, ‘You’re from Asia, you’re from Cambodia. Asia is not Mommy’s continent, it’s your continent.’ He jokes about how his continent is bigger. . . . He knows where Zahara came from. It’s pretty amazing.”
