Seal got Heidi Klum pregnant a couple of months ago. Now he's revealed the sex of his wife's fourth baby - a girl! - on a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

"She can't keep a secret," said Seal, who confirmed they're expecting a girl, and who first announced they were pregnant again at a NYC concert in April.

In Klum's first interview about her pregnancy, she revealed that she was hoping for a girl: "We'd be happy with either, but it would be a lie if I said we all weren't hoping for a little girl - especially Leni, she would love to have a little sister."

Either way, she's gonna have some gorgeous genes ...

The Project Runway host and Seal are currently raising a serious brood: Leni, 5 (whose dad is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore), Henry, 3, and Johan, 2.

The couple is celebrating their fourth anniversary this Sunday.

"We're going to get married again," Seal said. "This is going to be our fourth anniversary. The fifth time, and I'm not quite sure what the theme is."

"You know what my wife's like," he added. "She's always got a trick up her sleeve, but it's going to be a good get-together, you know, lots of friends."

Finally! News about a mother giving birth to multiple children at once that isn't Octomom or Kate Gosselin! Sorry, that was a bit of a weak intro.

Anyway, it's twice the baby joy for actress Julie Bowen, who some of our staff has been crushing on since her stint on like 10 shows. She's pretty.

Sam Alexis Woods and Charlie Axel Woods

The star and her husband, Scott Phillips, welcomed twin boys named Gus and John early this morning, her rep has officially confirmed. Yay!

The couple, who announced in November that they were expecting, are already parents to son Oliver, 2, who appears with his mom below:

Julie Bowen, 40, and Scott Phillips, a real estate investor, were married in 2004. Their adorable first child, Oliver, just celebrated his second birthday in April.

Most recently, Bowen played attorney Denise Bauer on Boston Legal, and has also appeared on Weeds, Lost and other shows. She is still perhaps best known for her role as schoolteacher Carol Vessey on the long-running Ed.

Congratulations to Julie and Scott!

Carrie Prejean's father, Will, believes his daughter will not be stripped of her title as Miss California in wake of the growing scandal surrounding the semi-nude and topless photos she posed for during her teenage years.

Will Prejean told Radar Online that he was "extremely excited" about a news conference being held Tuesday by Donald Trump, owner of Miss USA.

Sarah Palin Shaking Hands

If he does know something about what Trump will say, he would not reveal what it is, only that it was "confidential" and would be announced in due time.

The father of the embattled, unintelligent beauty queen also said he has not seen the Carrie Prejean nude shots, and "does not care" if they exist.

Regarding the other criticism directed at Carrie - for her adamant stance against gay marriage, Will Prejean said his children were brought up to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and accused the other side of intolerance.

In a separate interview with E! News, Carrie's father noted that none other than Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been personally in touch with his lightning-rod spawn: "She called her directly to offer support," he said.

Carrie Prejean has the support of Sarah Palin ... and of gays and lesbians, according to her father, Will. No word on what rock Will is currently residing under.

While he did not reveal the exact words of wisdom Palin offered, he clarified that the call came prior to Carrie lying about the racy photos that surfaced.

In addition to Sarah Palin, the proud father also claims that Carrie Prejean had been receiving well-wishes from an even more unbelievable source.

"The gay and lesbian community has been supportive of Carrie," he lied said, despite every shred of evidence to the contrary. "It's been overwhelming."

"Everyone has been coming up to Carrie and saying, 'We may not agree with you, but we respect you for what you say.' And they're very emphatic."

The elder Prejean also spoke out about explosive reports involving his nasty divorce with Carrie's mother and claims that he said Carrie's stepdad was gay because he had a mustache. Will denies this and says his family is very close.

He also addressed rumors that his ex-wife is now seeing a woman. Asked about this, Will, in a strange response said: "No... but she loves to play bingo." There you have it, folks. Consider that issue cleared up.

Should Carrie Prejean lose her crown?

Dina Lohan is slamming reports that question her parenting skills and claim that her 15-year-old daughter, Ali, is socializing instead of studying.

"Ali is in a home-schooling program. She has never been pulled out of school," Dina tells People. "It's the same home-schooling program that Lindsay was in since the 10th grade. It's a wonderful program many celebrities are enrolled in."

Defending her parenting skills (and we use the term loosely), Dina Lohan says, "I am a single mom of four children, and I devote my life to my children."

As for recent reports that Ali Lohan has been bitten by the partying bug, Dina says her daughter "is working, working hard. She's recording, and she's working on a fashion line. Ali has also been supporting her sister."

Dina Lohan just wants money and attention the best for her children.

Lindsay Lohan, who recently split from girlfriend Samantha Ronson, is also focusing on her career (and we also use that term loosely), her proud mom says.

"Lindsay is working extremely hard," Dina said of her Adderall-addict daughter. "Her new spray tan line sold more than 100,000 units at Sephora in one day."

There are so many things wrong with that statement, and this woman in general, that we don't even know where to start. We'll just pass and move on.

Dina says she understands that her family's high profile garners attention, but says, "We just wish people would leave us alone – at least for Mother's Day!"

That's the problem with becoming a cheap media whore at your kids' expense - celebrity gossip sites scrutinize Lindsay Lohan pictures. Funny how that works.

Paris Hilton is not smart.

Not exactly breaking news, but wait until you hear this latest evidence.

The 28-year-old ho-tel heiress is being sued for $8 million for failing to promote her 2006 comedy, Pledge This! At a pre-trial hearing in Miami on Thursday, Hilton was grilled by attorneys on whether keeps a diary for business meetings.

"I just press my name and Google it and see," was her response.

Asked by lawyers about receiving calls from producers, the socialite and new Guess model replied: "With my cellphone, I never know, because I lose it all the time ... I probably get a new cellphone, like, every two weeks."

Don't we all. The technology is always improving!

When shown a copy of her cell phone bill by a lawyer and asked if was indeed hers, Paris Hilton replied: "I've never seen a phone bill of mine in my life."

Doug Reinhardt is not dating her for her brains, looks or personality, people.

Asked what her responsibilities were as executive producer, she said, "I'm not sure what a producer does, but - I don't know, help get cool people in the cast?"

Hilton, who also revealed that she earns at least $11 million a year, thus disproving any alleged link between wealth and intelligence, claims she adequately honored her deal to promote the film by plugging it around the clock.

"Any chance I got, any red carpet, any press, even if I was doing something for another product... I would just bring it up, 'Oh, my new sorority film, it is going to be sexy, it's going to be really hot girls,'" Hilton testified.

"Like, I really, you know, did my best."

Like, we're sure you did. We Googled it, even.

A lawyer for Hilton, Michael Weinstein, said investors made unreasonable, last-minute demands for publicity events because the heiress' schedule is always fully booked, arguing: "She's the single busiest person on the planet."

Until now, Lydia Hearst was best known as the heiress to the Hearst Publishing empire, and also for briefly dating Cisco Adler and making out with Aubrey O'Day.

But really, who among us hasn't had the latter said of them?

Anyway, Lydia's apparently looking for more publicity and/or cash, what with the publishing industry tanking and all - so she's posing for GQ Italy!

Lydia Hearst Topless GQ Cover

Okay, so Megan Fox pictures, they're not. But hey, every aspiring model and actress has a right to bare all in a magazine that will accept them.

As for why Lydia Hearst is posing nude like this in GQ, the competition for Esquire, which her family owns? Well, they got Megan Fox. Sorry, L.

Follow the jump for more Lydia Hearst photos from the magazine ...

Attention Brittany Snow fans: Don't panic.

Despite reports that the Gossip Girl spinoff has been axed, the '80s series is not officially dead yet, according to a source close to the CW network.

The CW programmers are still making their decisions, and that everything, including Snow and Krysten Ritter's new series, is under consideration.

Why wouldn't a Gossip Girl spinoff get an automatic pickup - especially with flashback teases set to air on Monday night's all-new Gossip Girl?

The problem for all of the CW pilots this year is that with Privileged likely to get a pickup, there are only three spots left in the CW's schedule for new shows.

The original Gossip Girl, along with 90210, Supernatural, Smallville, One Tree Hill and America's Next Top Model have all already been ordered for next year.

Throw in the new Melrose Place (which seems to be a virtual certainty), and you've got just two holes left to fill. The Beautiful Life (starring Mischa Barton) and the Vampire Diaries are also strong competition for the Gossip Girl spinoff.

So that's where it stands, and it probably doesn't look good. But when you consider the fact that big publicity comes with all things associated with Gossip Girl, which made stars of Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, you never know.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have been all smiles since they tied the knot on April 25, and The Hills' plastic pair is still happy to talk about their big day.

"I was just sitting there in my dress like, 'I am really about to marry the most amazing man, and this is such a great experience," Heidi told Extra.

Not so amazing for Spencer Pratt? Being afraid Heidi's dad would punch him.

"I was still nervous her dad was going to punch me in the face right when he got there," Spencer recalled, as Heidi's family aren't exactly his biggest fans.

It's official though, so no going back - Heidi Montag is now Heidi Pratt.

"I legally changed my name to Pratt," she reveals. "I'm very excited."

Fearing Swine Flu

As for that whole epidemic going on in Mexico - a.k.a. "pig flue country" -where they just filmed Heidi's new music video? Also a little scary.

"We were masked up. I was scared," Heidi admits.

Spencer Pratt seconds that: "I didn't even want to take my mask off. I have enough to worry about in Hollywood than the swine flu."

The couple will have many more chances to discuss their life together, as Heidi promises they'll be together for a long time to come"

"It's real love and we will be married forever and ever and ever!"

We can only hope, if only for the staged photo ops and passive-aggressive fights on The Hills. Click to enlarge some terrific Speidi moments ...

Whoever imagined Jordan Miller, who started a Britney Spears fan site while a high school sophomore in 2004, would one day receive half a million visits a day?

Whoever imagined Miller, now a typical college student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, would be threatened with legal action by her dad, Jamie Spears?

Miller's world was turned upside-down last fall after he received an angry phone call from the pop star's father-guardian, accusing him of copyright violations.

"I'm working my ass off to report on this girl," Miller said.

In February 2008, after Britney Spears was forced into a treatment program for bipolar disorder, Jamie Spears was awarded conservatorship, giving him the authority to make legal, financial and medical decisions on behalf of his daughter.

Miller posted several blogs begging for Britney to be "freed."

Baby-Faced Britney

One fan site creator's opinions on Britney and posting of stories about Jamie Lynn Spears apparently have not gone over well with the stars' father and chief handler.

He also posted about a magazine story that suggested Britney's younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, was expecting her second child. Then his cell phone rang.

Miller said Jamie Spears told him, "I am going to destroy your ass."

"I was really freaking out for a good three or four weeks," Miller said. "Lately, I've been doing my own thing. I just kind of want to keep it going."

Each day, Miller scans the Internet for stories about Britney Spears, posts them on his site, BreatheHeavy.com, and adds his own comments. He encourages her fans to send him Circus tour photos or updates regarding her.

Miller said the site keeps him busy, but it is not as demanding now as it was when the troubled, out-of-control singer was shaving her head, bashing vehicles with an umbrella, being photographed without no underwear, and so on.
