Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged to be married to girlfriend Sophie Hunter.

The actor announced the news by posting a notice in British newspaper The Times.

Rumours are rife that Angelina Jolie may quit her acting career and join politics, after she hinted in a interview that she's ready to enter politics.

The A Mighty Heart star told Vanity Fair magazine that when one works as a humanitarian, they are conscious that politics have to be considered, because if they really want to make an extreme change, then they have a responsibility, Fox News reported.

The 39-year-old actress said that she honestly doesn't know in what role she would be more useful, she is conscious of what she does for a living, and that could make it less possible.

Jolie, who is a special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, further admitted she is open to pursing politics.

Singer Kelly Rowland has given birth to her and Tom Witherspoon's first child, son Titan Jewell.

The 33-year-old star welcomed her first child with husband into the world on November 4, said her representative, reported People magazine.

Rowland said, 'We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son. We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!'

The former Destiny's Child singer, who confirmed she and Tim were expecting a boy earlier this year, has shown much excitement about the arrival of her first child throughout much of her pregnancy.

Rowland first announced she and Witherspoon were pregnant in June, just one month after they tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Costa Rica.
