Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer-Maguire, a jewelry designer, are expecting their second child, their rep Kelly Bush confirmed to In Touch Weekly.

Tobey, 33, and Jennifer Meyer, 31, are already proud parents of two-year-old Ruby Sweetheart Maguire. The new bundle of joy has a due date of Spring 2009.

GROWING THE FAMILY: Tobey Maguire will forever be known as Spider-Man to fans. But to little Ruby Sweetheart and his second, unborn child, he'll just be dad.

According to a friend of the couple, who wed in September 2007, “they are ecstatic.”

So are we, because they seem pretty normal and probably won't pick a stupid-ass name like Bronx Mowgli for Ruby's little brother / sister. Congrats, kids!

Former Full House actress, new mom and recovering meth addict Jodie Sweetin is splitting up with her husband of a year and change, Cody Herpin.

The 26-year-old Sweetin filed papers in Orange County, Calif., for legal separation from Cody Herpin, 31, whom the actress had once called a "blessing" who helped turn around her life after years of methamphetamine addiction.

The pair were married in July 2007 and welcomed a daughter, Zoie, this April. They recently announced they were working on a reality show together.

That's a new one, splitting up before their reality show airs. Maybe they can re-marry in time for the premiere? One can hope. One can only hope.

Here's a look back at some of the highlights of their marriage:

Hey, at least they only need one chair and are doing their part to conserve the world's food supply. We should be lauding these skinny celebrities as humanitarians.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Mischa Barton cozied up at the landmark Grand Opening of Atlantis, the Palm Resort, and the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

She may not be ordering many burgers, but Mary-Kate finds new boyfriend Nate Lowman delicious. Mischa hasn't swallowed anything since her Cisco Adler daze.

Just days after the story broke that he was getting sued by some Bahrain prince, rumors have begun flying that Michael Jackson has converted to Islam.

Not only that, but he has changed his name to Mikaeel Jackson.

Apparently, Jacko was persuaded by songwriter David Wharnsby and producer Phillip Bubal while recording new tracks at their studio in the Hollywood Hills.

“They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea. An Imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief,” reports The Sun (UK).

If this is true, would it even be that strange? At least by Michael Jackson standards, it's barely newsworthy. Islam is practiced by more than a billion humans ... it's not like he joined some cult created a few decades ago by a sci-fi writer.

Or named his kid Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Prince Michael Jackson I and II (a.k.a. Blanket) seem like downright normal names compared to that douche-baggery.

Ah, politics.

Just when you think everything's going according to plan, you find the script has been completely thrown out after one of the players has "gone rogue."

So Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (remember her?) learned at an event in which she "pardoned" a local turkey, as politicians sometimes do this time of year.

Unbeknownst to the former Republican Vice Presidential candidate, while she was soaking up the publicity, talking family and energy policy, some birds were being prepped for Thanksgiving dinners by a farmer directly behind her.

Yeah. So who's the biggest turkey in this clip? It's a toss-up:

Lingerie model Karolina Kurkova has been voted the world's sexiest woman by E! entertainment television, beating a number of worthy foes for the honor.

The Czech native, recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the planet's highest paid models, was dubbed by E! as "she of the mysterious belly button" due to "media speculation about what appears to be an unusually smooth navel."

Congratulations to Karolina Kurkova. Here's the complete list of the top 10 sexiest women on Earth - representing six continents! - as ranked by E!:

As part of her ongoing series of documentary interviews, Britney Spears took some time to explain how her upcoming album, Circus, differs from her most recent effort.

"Circus is a little bit lighter than Blackout," says Brit. "They're totally different vibes. This one has a lighter feel, more pop. Blackout is darker, edgier, more urban."

She says her new hit single, "Womanizer," is for the ladies.

It also features Britney Spears nude, so it's sort of for the guys as well. But that's neither here nor there. That was just a side note we decided to throw out there.

It's about "a guy who is just into a bunch of different women. He can't help it. He's just a womanizer, a complete butthole, and gets away with it." Yes. She said that.

Britney Spears says she hopes girls will be empowered by the "girl anthem" and "stick up for themselves." Here's the newest portion of Britney's series of interviews:

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have welcomed their first child, a boy.

The ridiculously named and scarred for life Bronx Mowgli Wentz - who weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces, and was 20.5 inches long - was born Thursday night.

"Proud new parents Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz welcomed new son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, late this evening," their rep said. "Ashlee, Pete and baby Bronx are all healthy and happy, and thank everyone for their well wishes!"

BABY MAKES THREE: Ashlee Simpson may have zero talent, but she has one husband and one child now after the birth of Bronx Mowgli Wentz (that's not a typo)!

"Carrying a child is the most inspiring, emotional, amazing experience of my life," Simpson wrote on MySpace. "My weight and my pant size are the last thing I am concerned about. I'm only concerned with having a healthy pregnancy and baby."

Bronx Mowgli. Seriously, where do these losers think this stuff up? It's like they're insisting that he become a total douchebag when he grows up.

NOTE: We apologize for our initial misspelling of Bronx's middle name. We blame our sources. Know what other word is hard to spell? Misspelled! The irony.

Taco Bell is going for the whole enchilada in defending itself from a suit filed by 50 Cent, claiming the rapper's tough-talking $4 million lawsuit (alleging trademark infringement) from earlier this summer was nothing but a publicity stunt.

The fast food chain definitely answered the legal Bell, so to speak, in its attempt to straight up dome Fiddy when it comes to his credibility.

The Bell attacked 50 as a gentleman whose work "falls in the sub-genre of hip hop music known as 'gangsta rap,' a style associated with urban street gangs and characterized by violent, tough-talking braggadocio." Or something.

The Taco peeps also claim Fiddy only filed the lawsuit to "burnish his gangsta persona." Not sure how suing Taco Bell would do that, but whatever you say.

50 Cent sued over Taco Bell's promotional campaign where they offered to give $10,000 to charity if the rapper would change his name to 79, 89 or 99 Cent.

His lawyer tells us "Taco Bell needs to be stopped" and that "Mr. Cent intends to vigorously pursue this case." Seriously, he referred to him as Mr. Cent.

You know what they say: Mo' money mo' problems. Combined this with his many lawsuits against Shaniqua Tompkins and Fiddy has his legal hands full.
