Hollywood star Jessica Alba is pregnant with her second child and made the surprise announcement on social networking website Facebook.

 

The 29-year-old actress and producer husband Cash Warren, are "thrilled" about having a sibling for two-and-a-half year old daughter, Honor.

 

"I thought I'd drop by to let you all in on some exciting news, Honor is going to be a Big Sister(sic)," wrote the Sin City actress in her post.

 

"Cash and I are thrilled and wanted to share the news directly with you so you didn't hear about it somewhere else. I appreciated all of the love and support you all gave me during my first pregnancy and will definitely appreciate it again this time around," she added.

 

The actress was at the Bafta Awards on Sunday night where she wore a flowing blue gown which disguised any hint of a baby bump.

 

The actress met 32-year-old Warren on the set of The Fantastic Four in 2004 and got engaged three years later after learning of her surprise pregnancy.

 

They wed at the Beverly Hills courthouse in May 2008 and welcomed their daughter at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles two months later.

Halle Berry's ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry has reportedly filed a motion to end his custody case and to dismiss his request for child support from the actress.

 

Berry and Aubry have reached a truce in their bitter fight over custody of their two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Nahla, and are even on talking terms once again.

 

"I think both sides realized how out of hand things had gotten recently," RadarOnline.com quoted a source close to the situation as saying.

 

"They both love their daughter and want to make sure her well fare comes first.

 

"Gabriel and Halle have spoken to each other and have committed to try and make things work, without the courts -- Gabe's decision to drop his case is his way of showing Halle he's prepared to take a leap of faith and trust her once again," the source added.

Former Westlife member Brian McFadden was detained by Federal Police at Sydney Airport after he allegedly got drunk and abusive on a Virgin flight from LA.

 

McFadden, 30, was travelling on a Virgin flight in business class with friend and fellow Australia's Got Talent judge Kyle Sandilands.

 

The singer was drinking heavily and abused flight attendants and fellow passengers, witnesses revealed, and he was also smoking on the flight.

 

Sandilands, 39, was forced to restrain him, and Virgin cabin crew are said to have reported the incident to ground staff in Sydney.

 

McFadden was questioned when the plane landed, and an Australian Federal Police (AFP) spokeswoman said police had spoken to two men when the plane landed in Sydney.

 

While airline staff had requested the men be spoken to by police, no formal complaint was made and as a result the men were released without being charged and no further action would be taken she said.

 

McFadden has denied smoking on the plane, telling Channel Nine he doesn't smoke.

 

'I don't smoke. Light up a cigarette on the plane? That's illegal,' News.com.au quoted him as saying.

Charlie Sheen is apparently keen to give advice to troubled star Lindsay Lohan.

 

The Two and a Half Men star has been battling his own personal issues in recent months, and is currently undergoing rehab treatment at his home in Los Angeles.

 

However, the 45-year-old insists he's the perfect person to help Lohan deal with her problems as she fights accusations she stole a necklace from a Hollywood jewelers, because he understands how the media can "vilify without fact".

 

'I dare you to get Lindsay on the show. You get Lindsay on the show and I'll call in. I have some advice for her. I have some things for her to consider,' the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Sheen as telling US radio show presenter Dan Patrick on Wednesday.

'Work on your impulse control, just try to think things through a little bit before you do it. Now check it -- I was not there in the store, the necklace, some bracelet, who cares? I mean, they are just so desperate to vilify without fact,' he said.

 

Lohan, who was already on probation when the incident allegedly occurred in January, has pleaded not guilty to a felony grand theft charge and is currently free on bail after a judge revoked her probation for a previous DUI charge.

Kanye West and Katy Perry have joined forces for the latter's new remix of 'E.T.', which has the artists engaging in "alien sex" talk.

 

The reworked version of the Teenage Dream single, which surfaced online on Wednesday, features West making lewd comments to the recently married songstress and her asking him to "fill me with your poison," reports the New York Daily News.

 

"I'mma disrobe you then I'mma probe you/ See, I abducted you so I tell you what to do," West sings to the 26-year-old pop star.

 

The 'Power' singer also says he wants to "bathe" in Perry's "milky way," though he does admit he might put some people off.

 

"I got a dirty mind/ I got filthy ways," the 33-year-old rapper chants. "They callin'' me an alien/ A big-headed astronaut/ Maybe it's because your boy Yeezy gets a-- a lot."

 

Perry tweeted a photo of her in pink and blue face makeup and some wild cosmic hair from the set of the song's music video.
