INSIDE MILEY CYRUS FLING WITH KELLAN LUTZ

Miley Cyrus



Kellan Lutz
Forget about bros before babes! Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz, a good friend of Liam Hemsworth’s, is having a fling with Miley Cyrus, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The actor, 28, reached out to the Bangerz singer, 21, in early December, says the insider. “The next day, they hung out,” explains the source. “And they’ve been hooking up ever since.” Cyrus even invited the 6-foot-1 actor on an overnight jaunt from Miami to the Bahamas Dec. 17. (Rumors of a potential romance between the two were ignited after both stars were photographed walking off the same private jet, separately, after returning to Miami from the excursion.)



Lutz, who says he “got cut” to film January’s The Legend of Hercules, is “nice eye candy” for the singer, adds the insider. “It doesn’t hurt that he’s Liam’s pal,” the source continues. “But they really enjoy each other’s company.”



Cyrus and ex-fiance Hemsworth split back in September after three years together. "I just believe that when a chapter is done, you have to close it and start that new one,” the hitmaker told Ellen DeGeneres one month after the couple announced their broken engagement. “That's kind of where I am right now. I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn't really been focused on that.”



Up next for the “Adore You” crooner? Cyrus will perform live at Times Square on New Year’s Eve, right before the ball drops.

NEW BABY FOR KIM KARDASHIAN & ATKINS DIET

Kim Kardashian In Us Weekly




The cover story of the new issue of Us Weekly features in the inside story on how Kim Kardashian got her body back without the use of surgery and other gimmicks. She debuted her new bikini body during a Miami Beach sunrise stroll on November 30 while in town with fiancĂ© Kanye West. “Kim feels confident again,” says a source close to the mom.



Sources tell Us the E! star is happily planning for a second baby. “Kim and Kanye want more kids,” says a Kim source. “After her body has returned so quickly, she’s motivated to have another.” She got to work on her fitness goals as soon as she received the all-clear from her doctor. “I’ve been doing the Atkins diet,” she told Us of the meal plan. Kim is embracing images of herself again as she readies for another pregnancy. “People say the second time around is easier,” says the confidant. “And Kim knows she can get her body back, so there’s no worry there.” The proof, after all, is in the bikini.



Also in the new Us is an interview with “Saving Mr. Banks” star Tom Hanks. When asked if wife, Rita Wilson, liked the mustache he grew for the role, Hanks replied, “she hated it! She hates every time I have to grow facial hair.” Hanks also speaks about filming at Disneyland for two days and what happened when he took 6-month-old granddaughter Charlotte on the Winnie the Pooh Adventure. “She’ll be haunted for the rest of her years by the image of Winnie the Pooh and the loud, short, herky-jerky ride that her grandfather forced her to do. That is just a sample of the fantastic job I do as a grandparent!”



Us’ 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me this week is all about actor and rock ‘n’ roll musician, Steven Van Zandt. He offers some fun little-known tidbits about his life:

--“Bruce Springsteen was my best man.”

--“And Percy Sledge sang “When a Man Loves a Woman” for us as we walked down the aisle.

--“I got thrown out of high school for having long hair. I went back and graduated to make my mother happy.”

THE INSIDE STORY ON PAUL WALKERS CAR CRASH

Paul Walker's Us Weekly Cover Story




The new issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now, looks back on the Fast & the Furious star, Paul Walker’s life and his sudden untimely passing. On November 30, Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, stepped away from Walker’s own charity auto show to take one of the cars – a red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT – for a quick spin. “They just wanted to go for a ride,” says a Walker friend. Within minutes, everything had changed. “We could see and smell smoke,” says one witness. The Porsche, engulfed in flames had crashed into a tree. Walker and Rodas were both pronounced dead at the scene. “He’s the nicest guy I’ve known,” his stand-in Shayne Tingle, tells Us. “He lived his life with compassion and kindness. It was so contagious that it made you want to be a better person,” says Tingle. Another heartbreaking truth: Walker’s life came to an end just as his relationship with Meadow, his 15-year-old daughter, was blossoming. His daughter lived in Hawaii with her mother for most of her life, but moved into Walker’s Santa Barbara home in 2012. Two weeks before his death, Us Weekly had the chance to interview Walker about his upcoming drama, Hours. He gleefully gushed to Us, “She wants a relationship with her pops!” While there is little sense to be made of the tragedy, some friends are taking comfort in knowing Walker’s last moments were happy ones. “His true loves,” says pal Bill Townsend, “were cars, his charity and family.”



Also in this week’s issue, move over Will and Kate! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning over-the-top nuptials at France’s Palace of Versailles. Though the reality star has said she wanted a small wedding, a confidant tells Us, “Kanye has never been married and wants a big one.” Adds a pal of the rapper “It will be over-the-top crazy.” Money is no object for the duo of two years. “They are not working with a budget,” says an insider. And fans won’t miss the fun. “Unless Kanye objects,” says an E! source, “Kim would never get married without it being a TV event.”



Flirty texts! Secret phone calls! Three months after breaking his engagement to Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth is ready to reconcile. “He pushed to get in touch,” says a source. Since then the dup have secretly met up in L.A. and “are talking like they did when they were together,” says an insider. He even comforted her when she lost treasured jewelry during a November 22 break-in at her home. But Cyrus isn’t sure she’s ready to give their tumultuous four-year romance another swing. “She’s confused about how she feels,” says the insider. Hemsworth doesn’t need to mull it over. Says the source, “He’s telling friends he misses her.”

THE TRANSFORMED LIFE OF KATE MIDDLETON

****
ON THE NEWSSTAND
****

The Kate Middleton Cover




The cover story of the new issue of Us Weekly offers an inside look at how marriage and baby has transformed the life of Duchess Kate Middleton. The life of a 21st-century princess isn’t just tiaras and designer dresses!



Since George’s July 22 birth, Kate has been balancing motherhood and work her way, putting family before established protocol. Even with the challenges of a fretful baby, she and her husband of two years are determined to keep their home a (mostly) nanny-free zone. Kate’s mom routine would appall 19th-century monarch Queen Victoria, who saw her children only to supervise their baths. And it would even come as a shock to her late mother-in-law, who had to miss William’s very first birthday because of a long-scheduled official trip with Charles to Canada. The duchess’ rules: Her duties cannot take her far from London, and overnight trips are forbidden. With Christmas fast approaching, the pair are charting new ground there as well. Royal tradition has it that blue-blooded VIPs spend the holiday at the queen’s Sandringham estate — no commoners allowed. With his grandmother’s blessing, however, William has arranged for Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole, sister Pippa and brother James to stay 2 miles away at the couple’s new country house, Anmer Hall, for Boxing Day December 26.



The ’25 Things You Don’t Know About Me’ feature in this week’s issue of Us centers on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire star, Lenny Kravitz. A few fun facts about the crooner-turned-actor are listed below:

--“I wrote my first song, “I Love You, Baby,” at age 7.

--“Angelina Jolie auditioned for the lead in my “Stand by My Woman” video. The director passed!”

--“Jonah Hill’s dad is my business manager.”

--“As a high school student, I worked in a fish market. I had to cut, gut and fry.”

--“When I was 5, Duke Ellington showed me how to play piano.”



Also in the new issue, Us Weekly reveals that Once Upon a Time actress, Ginnifer Goodwin, is expecting a baby with fiancé Josh Dallas. Rumors that the star had a baby on board first swirled when she was photographed on the set of her hit ABC drama in a gray swing coat that seemed to strategically conceal her stomach. This will be the first child for Goodwin and Dallas.

HOW MIRANDA LAMBERT LOST 25 LBS IN 3 MONTHS

****
THE COVER STORY
****

US Weekly Cover Miranda Lambert




The new Us Weekly’s cover story is all about how the country superstar, Miranda Lambert, got her best body ever –without giving up cocktails with husband Blake Shelton! Lambert had lost weight before – and gained it back, too. But as her milestone 30th birthday fast approached, the sassy crooner made a vow to get – and keep – her body red carpet ready. One pal estimates the 5-foot-4 star has lost 25 pounds, bringing her right to her goal weight – and she did it without giving up her favorite Southern home cooking, or at least half of it! “she’s doing portion control,” explains a source. “She eats part of what she normally does and it’s working!” While she gave up bigger portions, she continues to have her favorite liquid indulgence. “I refuse to give up drinking,” Lambert tells Us. But instead of high-calorie drinks, she concocts low-calorie treats using Crystal Light and Sprite Zero. Aside from smaller meals and her diet-friendly spirits, Lambert credits her weight loss to daily workouts, designed by her beloved personal trainer. “I absolutely hate exercise,” she said last year, “but my trainer is so nice, I want to do push-ups to please him!” Now that Lambert has finally hit the mark, a friend says, “she has a new confidence about her. She feels amazing.”



THREE RING CIRCUS





Also in this week’s issue, after fearing for her family’s safety Denise Richards decided to give up the care of her ex Charlie Sheen’s twins. Now the boys are under the temporary care of their third guardian in six months, the twin’s mother Brooke Burke’s brother, Scott. Complicating matters further, Scott — an internet entrepreneur — lives with Brooke at her Beverly Hills home, according to TMZ. Says a source of the custody situation, “It’s truly a three-ring circus.” Other insiders worry about previous chaotic conditions at Brooke’s home. Before Brooke went to rehab in May, “there were new nannies every week,” says one source. The boys had no enforced bedtime, either. “Brooke’s day is night till sunrise,” says another source. “She kept the kids up all night because she wanted them to spend time with her.” In the end Denise has no regrets about putting her three daughters first and removing the boys from her home. “Denise did what she felt was necessary and feels relieved,” continues the Richards insider. “She has worked hard to keep her daughters in a safe environment, and she wanted it to stay that way.” 


AMERICAN IDOL MOMENT




It’s been 11 years since Kelly Clarkson sang about her triumphant American Idol moment. But to her, it feels like a lifetime ago. “I get tired when I think about all the stuff I’ve done!” she quips. And now that she has stockpiled awards (including three Grammys) and hit albums (20 million sold and counting!), the new bride of music manager Brandon Blackstock is eyeing her next milestone. “Bring on the kids!” says Clarkson. The Nashville resident, who just released her holiday set, Wrapped in Red, sat down with Us to discuss her past and her future. “[Having kids] is I can talk about,” Clarkson revealed. “My eggs aren’t getting younger! Brandon has two kids, and I want two more. I saw Adele at the Grammys, and she said, “Girl, don’t have a baby ’cause everything else will go on the back burner. I’m living in babyland!” I keep adding stuff on, but I want it all.” When asked about almost being a judge on Idol, Clarkson told us “The producers came to me and wanted to bring some “originals” back to judge. Cool idea, but I was going on tour with Maroon 5. I’m also getting a pop and a country album ready for next year, and I want to be on Broadway. Maybe next time around, but for now, I have a lot to sing about. I’m blessed!”

US WEEKLY'S COVER 'LIFE AFTER THE HILLS'

Life After The Hills In Us Weekly



The cover of the new Us Weekly is all about “LIFE AFTER THE HILLS”. More than three years after the iconic MTV reality show ended, three of its female stars – Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari, and Heidi Montag – are in very different places. Lauren has been seen showing off her 2-carat ring and says a pal, “Lauren wants a big wedding!” Kristen is enjoying low-key married life and is expecting baby no. 2, while Heidi Montag has changed her body yet again. After two breast augmentations she has removed her size-F implants. “I didn’t realize what I was signing up for: It took me a year to recover,” she says. “I was too impulsive.” Spencer’s been taking care of her though. “He’s the best! He’s been taking care of the dogs and me,” she tells Us. “Starting over has been hard, but it’s made me and Spencer way closer. We’re the best we’ve ever been.”



Justin Bieber had a wild night in Brazil when he got caught out at a Brazilian brothel. Inside Centaurus – Rio de Janeiro’s most popular brothel – Bieber tried to stay under the radar. 45 potential dates were presented to Bieber before he and his crew decided to enjoy the company of two women with an overnight price tag of $1,200 each. Though they tried to bring the girls back to their Copacabana hotel, the escorts were turned away as “the hotel has a no-tolerance attitude towards escorts” and they brought back “two of the area’s most well-known prostitutes.”



Also in this week’s issue, Us Weekly’s Hot Stuff exclusively revealed that Gaga is going galactic. She’ll be the first artist to sing in outer space on the Virgin Galactic ship during the Zero G Colony tech festival. “She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere,” says a source who adds that the diva’s glam squad will join her in the shuttle. And just in case the force isn’t with the star the source adds, “Gaga has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!”

DUCK DYNASTY TALKS ABOUT MARRIAGE & FAMILY

Duck Dynasty In Us Weekly




In the new issue of Us Weekly, the cover story is all about the secrets of the Duck Duo, Willie and Korie Robertson. Before the show — which follows the pair and Willie’s mostly bearded extended family — “we had a great foundation,” Willie explained. “Our marriage has been tested: tons of kids, growing businesses and working with family on both sides. And it’s withstood all that. You either melt and crash or you become strong. We’re strong.” Willie told Us that the couple met in third grade at summer camp and then wed as teens! “Her senior year, I saw Korie at the mall with some of her friends. I thought, man, you know? It felt like something was here. She called me after that mall visit, and that was pretty much it from there.” “We fought a lot,” Korie revealed about the first year of marriage, “When we didn’t have any money, we fought over whether he could buy a pack of baseball cards or I could buy a magazine. Then, when the kids were little, we fought over who had to clean up the throw-up from the bathroom. Plus, our families are total opposites — his is more of a hunting family, mine was more a business family.” But there were some key things we learned during pre-marriage counseling: In an argument, don’t say “You never do this” or “You always do this” because it puts the other person on the defensive. The other was, don’t talk about your in-laws. We’ve really abided by those two things, and it’s saved us a lot of trouble.” And you’ll never believe who the more romantic one of the two is, Willie! “He’s really good at that!” Korie gushed “If he knows I’m going through a stressful time, he’ll write an awesome sweet note and leave it on my mirror in the morning. It’s not about the grand gestures. It’s the little day-to-day things.”



Also in the issue, Meadow Soprano is a mom! Jamie-Lynn Sigler introduces Us exclusively to her son with Cutter Dykstra. Every morning the new mom walks into the nursery in her L.A. home and greets her son, Beau, the exact same way. “I look at him and I say, ‘You grew up last night!’ ” the actress, 32, tells Us of the infant, already sleeping through the night at just 7 weeks old. “ ‘You are so big!’ Her 36-hour delivery was a labor of love in itself. But Sigler insists she enjoyed the experience completely. A handful of family and friends was on hand, and the group watched YouTube videos and Japanese prank shows in between contractions! “It felt like a party,” she raved. “We had music going and my mom ate a box of See’s candy chocolates like popcorn at a movie.” A wedding and a second child are also on the agenda for Sigler and Dykstra she revealed. “But we’ll take a break before having another. This little man needs his time!” ­



The new issue hits newsstands this Friday.



Nina Dobrev Splits From Derek Hough: What Went Wrong



Derek Hough's dance card is once again open. A little less than two weeks after their first public date, the Dancing With the Stars pro and girlfriend Nina Dobrev have split, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.


The couple of six weeks -- who hit up Universal Studios' Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights in L.A. on Oct. 5 -- decided recently that the relationship had "played itself out," one insider tells Us. Geography was a factor, too: Hough, 28, is filming DWTS in L.A., while Dobrev, 24, is shooting The Vampire Diaries in Atlanta, Ga.


"The distance was too much to handle," a pal says of the pair.


Us Weekly first exclusively revealed that the two were dating in late September. "[Nina] was hanging a lot with Derek's sister Julianne," a source told Us at the time. "Then she fell for him."


And he for her. "Derek is smitten with Nina," the insider added. "He said he hasn't felt this way for a girl in a long time...Everyone approves!"


Alas, the relationship seems to have run its course. But Dobrev's friendship with Julianne is still intact. "Julianne understands -- there are no hard feelings," another source tells Us of the Safe Haven star and the CW actress, who split from costar Ian Somerhalder in May after three years of dating.

PHARRELL WILLIAMS MARRIES HELEN LASICHANH

Pharrell Williams



Pharrell Williams is one lucky guy! The Grammy award-winning record producer tied the knot with his girlfriend model Helen Lasichanh on Saturday, Oct. 12, Us Weekly has confirmed. The "Get Lucky" singer and his new bride exchanged vows in Miami, Fla.



The newlyweds were feted by several famous pals, including Usher and Busta Rhymes. "Usher and Busta Rhymes did a mini concert at the wedding," a source revealed to Us.



"It was so fun," the insider added. "The little concert was amazing. It [was] the most fun wedding I've ever been to."



Williams and Lasichanh are already parents to their 4-year-old-son Rocket. "[He's the] best song that I've ever co-written," the fashion designer said about his baby boy to TODAY show host Savannah Guthrie in August. "It's awesome," he said of his family. "I can't tell anyone what to do. I can't give anyone relationship advice. But the bestie thing is awesome. Every night is like a sleepover."

ROSANNA ARQUETTE MARRIES CEO TODD MORGAN

Todd Morgan And Rosanna Arquette




Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Todd Morgan! Two years after saying "yes" to her investment banker boyfriend's proposal, Pulp Fiction actress Rosanna Arquette said two other very important words: "I do."


"Rosanna Arquette and Todd Morgan were married in a private family ceremony in Malibu on Sunday," a rep for the Desperately Seeking Susan star tells Us Weekly exclusively. "Todd Morgan is the CEO of Belair investments and a philanthropist. Arquette has recently been seen in Girls and Ray Donovan. She is directing her first feature and has 3 TV shows in development. They are very happy." A source tells Us that celeb guests included Barbra Streisand.



The thrice-divorced actress -- whose three siblings David, Patricia, and Alexis Arquette are also well-known actors -- got engaged to Morgan in June 2011. "She's completely in love and had no hesitation in accepting," a source told Radar Online at the time. "Rosanna is, at the heart of it, a real romantic."



Indeed, Arquette told the Huffington Post in 2012 that while it was difficult for her to find a work/life balance, she didn't feel complete without a partner.



"I think, for me, it's been quite a challenge to have both. I was in a relationship for a few years and didn't work for a few years, and now I'm starting to go back to work and I am in a relationship," she said. "It's always about accepting the other person -- who they are and what they do. I love to work and I love my partnership, but I really do need both. If I'm only focusing on one, then I'm not a whole person."

This is the fourth marriage for Arquette. She was previously wed to director Tony Greco (from 1979 to 1980), to composer James Newton Howard (from 1986 to 1987), and to restaurateur John Sidel (from 1993 to 1999). She and Sidel have a teenage daughter, Zoe.

TOP CHEF JUDGE GAIL SIMMONS EXPECTING BABY

Gail Simmons



Celebrity chef Gail Simmons is now eating for two! The Top Chef judge, 37, is pregnant with her first child, her rep tells Us Weekly exclusively. Simmons and husband of five years Jeremy Abrams' little one arrives this winter.


Simmons and Abrams -- who heads up music programming business Audiostiles -- wed in 2008, with their nuptials featuring in Martha Stewart's Real Weddings magazine. They live in Brooklyn, NYC.


As the Toronto native wrote in her memoir Talking With My Mouth Full, Abrams proposed to her when she woke up one morning in bed after a grueling ten days on the road promoting Top Chef. After she accepted his ring, she answered the door -- to discover a "full breakfast delivery" from the their favorite NYC eatery, August. "We made it last the whole day, laid out like a picnic on our living room floor," the Food and Wine editor wrote.


"Twenty minutes later, the doorbell rang again. Two deliverymen arrived bearing vases full of flowers; huge peonies, dahlias, roses, and hydrangeas. They lasted for days."

STARS FILLED WITH GLEE
****


Melissa Benoist




Blake Jenner and Melissa Benoist definitely have something to sing about! The Glee costars are officially engaged, a source tells Us Weekly.


Reps for both actors declined to comment on the pair's personal lives.


Jenner, 20, plays Ryder Lynn on the hit Fox musical show. The actor and singer earned a spot on the series after besting 13 other contestants on 2012's The Glee Project.


Benoist, 24, joined the cast as newcomer Marley Rose in the fourth season of the show as "the new Rachel Berry."


The pair only recently publicly acknowledged their relationship during a Twitter chat with ET Canada, during which a fan asked Blake if the costars were an item off-screen, to which the shaggy-haired actor replied with a simple "yup" and a smiley face.

MELISSA GORGA EXPECTED MORE FROM TERESA

****
REAL HOUSEWIVES DRAMA
****

Melissa Gorga




Despite their rocky family history, Melissa Gorga still expected a little more from sister-in-law Teresa Giudice when she was confronted with the ugly accusation of cheating on her husband of nearly nine years, Joe Giudice, on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.



On the episode, Gorga's former BFF Jan DeDolce told a table full of women that Gorga had cheated on Joe with an ex-boyfriend, a claim that Gorga vehemently denies.



"I've never cheated on Joe," she tells Us Weekly. "This is all disappointing." According to DeDolce, the ex "admitted that [Melissa] b--w him."



But more than being angry at DeDolce, who was a bridesmaid in her wedding, Gorga's outrage is being directed toward Teresa, who was "just sitting there" at the table when the subject came up.

Jessica Simpson

Us exclusively revealed in November 2012 that Simpson was pregnant again just seven months after Maxwell's birth; Us also broke news in February that Simpson planned on naming her child "Ace."

UPTON DANCING WITH MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY

Kate Upton



Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Kate Upton turned 21 on Monday, June 10 -- and the buxom blonde may have celebrated her milestone birthday with a new man. The two-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl is rumored to be dating Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, multiple insiders tell Us Weekly exclusively. "It's very new," a source says of the stars' alleged romance. "They were set up through friends. They just started dating." When contacted by Us, Chmerkovskiy's rep declined to comment on his personal life. A source close to Upton, meanwhile, said the two have known each other for a long time and are just good friends. Her rep had no comment.



Whatever their status, the pair certainly looked like a couple when they dined a deux at Scalinatella in New York City's Upper East Side neighborhood. "They were very canoodly," an eyewitness tells Us, noting that the birthday girl and her purported beau arrived late and were holding hands at the table. "It was a very intimate meal."


JASON SEGEL MOVES FROM MICHELLE WILLIAMS

Jason Segel




Jason Segel is officially moving on. After splitting from Michelle Williams last February, the How I Met Your Mother actor, 33, was photographed on a date with a pretty blonde woman on Sunday, June 9th, and Us Weekly has now exclusively learned her identity.



Segel's new female friend is 31-year-old Serbian Australian actress Bojana Novakovic, a source tells Us. The twosome were spotted out shopping together and having lunch in Hollywood. Segel wore a long-sleeved shirt, jeans, sneakers, hat and shades during the outing, and affectionately wrapped his arm around Novakovic. The Edge of Darkness actress, wearing floral print jeans and a navy top, had a big smile on her face while strolling with Segel.

THE ELIN NORDEGREN AND LINDSEY VONN DRAMA

Lindsey Vonn




If Elin Nordegren had her way, Tiger Woods wouldn't get another swing at love. The golfer's ex-wife, who divorced him 2010 after his epic cheating scandal, "hates Lindsey Vonn and everything about this romance," a source tells Us Weekly.



Woods, 37, and the blonde Olympic skier, 28, have been dating since last fall and went public back in March -- with high-profile dates at NYC's Met Gala in May and multiple excursions with Sam, 5, and Charlie, 4, Woods' kids with Nordegren.



Swedish-born former model and nanny Nordegren, the source adds, is "angry Tiger even has visitation rights to the kids." The stunning mother of two's own romantic life post-scandal has been much more hush-hush: Although they've taken pains not to be photographed together, Nordegren was romantically linked to coal magnate Chris Cline -- who lives near her $12 million beachside estate in North Palm Beach, Fla. -- earlier this year.



What does Woods think about Nordegren's anger? "He doesn't care about her," the source adds of his wife of six years. "He's so egotistical!"



Vonn, meanwhile, recently said things are going great with Woods, although the intense scrutiny on their romance has been "been difficult and interesting . . . But we're dealing with it and we're happy, and that's all that matters."

JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT ENGAGED AND PREGNANT

Jennifer Love Hewitt



The exclusive cover story of the new issue of Us Weekly features the happy news that Jennifer Love Hewitt is engaged and expecting her first child with actor Brian Hallisay. The actors, who previously appeared together on NBC's short-lived series Love Bites, started dating 15 months ago after reconnecting on the set of their hit Lifetime show The Client List. Hallisay proposed in late May, while the two were vacationing in Europe.



"We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," the costars tell Us in a statement. A source says Hewitt is about three months along. Hewitt was previously engaged to Scottish actor Ross McCall, whom she began dating in 2005. They called it quits in late 2008 and Hewitt went on to date her Ghost Whisperer costar Jamie Kennedy from 2009 to 2010. The 34-year-old actress has long been vocal about her desire to get married and start a family. "I would love to to have babies. . . one day," Hewitt told Us in 2010. "I'm obsessed with babies!"



Also in the new issue of Us is an exclusive interview with Real Housewife Brandi Glanville where she discusses dating and her battles with ex Eddie Cibrian and his ladylove LeAnn Rimes. Early next year the reality star will release a follow-up dating tome to her bestselling book Drinking & Tweeting: and Other Brandi Blunders. When it comes to dating, Glanville doesn’t claim to be an expert. She just learns from her mistakes. What advice does she dispense to the women on other Real Housewives casts? “I think Kenya [Moore] from Atlanta reeks of desperation. She is a pretty and intelligent woman. But the whole “I want to get married! I want to get married!” thing is not hot for anyone to say.” You and your readers can read the full interview in the new issue, out nationally on Friday.
