In an interview this morning on CBS' The Early Show, Malawi native James Kambewa is again voicing his opposition to pop superstar Madonna's efforts to adopt his three-year-old daughter, Chifundo "Mercy" James.

"I want to take care of her and I'm capable to take care of my baby," says Kambewa, who is only 15 himself. "Mercy, she is a Malawian - so [I] need her to grow as a Malawian, as well with our culture."

In the CBS interview, Kambewa is wearing a necklace he made bearing his daughter’s name but says has never held or even met her in person.

The little girl's birth mother died shortly after childbirth.

Lucy Chekechiwa, Mercy’s maternal grandmother, says she, too, was initially opposed to the adoption but eventually gave in. Madonna was negged in her efforts by the country's government, however, before filing an appeal.

“I did not want my granddaughter to be adopted,” Lucy says, “but because they have been persistent enough, I have been forced to let my granddaughter go."

Madonna will make her appeal before Malawi's Chief Justice Lovemore Munlo. In April, a judge rejected the 50-year-old superstar's adoption request because she doesn't meet the minimum 18-month residency requirement.

Here's hoping Jesus Luz will comfort her if she fails again.

Even though Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding only took place a week ago now, there's already talk of the gruesome twosome starting a family.

"Heidi wants four boys," new sister-in-law Stephanie Pratt told Us at the grand opening of Catch Boutique in L.A. "Imagine ... four Spencer Pratts!"

Yes. Imagine.

Does Spencer's sister, who was a bridesmaid in The Hills wedding event along with Holly Montag, think that Heidi Montag will make a good mom?

"Yeah, she's really good with our niece," Stephanie said, referring to Ava, the flower girl at Speidi's wedding. "They're [both] kid lovers."

Stephanie Pratt, who said she had never been to a wedding before Spencer and Heidi's Saturday nuptials, thought the ceremony was "wonderful."

"It was the most - I didn’t think they could be that beautiful," she said, adding that her absolute favorite moment of the evening was, "for me, it was walking down the aisle - which wasn’t that long of an aisle - and I felt so nervous!"

"I had to walk slow, but I was running down it and crying, with my brother laughing at me because I could not keep it together. I’ll never forget that."

Even Steph and Spencer's parents, Skip and Janet Pratt, got choked up.

"They’ve always loved Heidi," she said. "My mom was very emotional. He’s her only boy."

Truly, so touching. We can't wait to watch it unfold on The Hills' finale. Don't forget to give us your funniest Speidi jokes in our Caption Contest.

The evening before the exciting gossip broke that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are officially expecting twin girls via a surrogate mother, the actress sure looked like a mom-to-be: glowing and forgoing those famous cosmos.

"She was in such a great mood, so sweet to everyone and so happy," says a guest who attended the party at 675 Bar for Broderick's film, Wonderful World.

"They were tucked into a corner throughout the night. He drank martinis and she drank water. They were really loving and adoring. She did look beautiful."

The actress has been ready for more children for a long time.

"They've always wanted to become parents again," says a source who has known the couple for years. "They realized after the first or second year after [son James Wilkie, now six] was born that it would be nice to have another baby."

While "they've always talked about [more] kids, it just wasn't happening," says a pal, as Parker "had difficulty getting pregnant. So they went the surrogate route."

Friends say the couple just loves being parents.

"They are great parents," says a source. "They have a good time with their son. Matthew is very hands-on. He loves to get on the floor and play with James. He's a kid himself so he loves to act like one. And James, of course, loves it."

So how is Sarah Jessica Parker preparing for two baby girls? This week, she stepped out to do a little shopping at the Manhattan toy store, Kidding Around.

Nothing like retail therapy... or celebration. For a look at cute twins that were just born, check out the new sons of Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller!

This is nice to see.

A few weeks after son Max was finally sent home from the hospital (he had remained there due to low birth weight issues), Charlie Sheen showed off his new, adorable family for celebrity gossip tabloid In Touch Weekly.

The Two and a Half Men star and wife Brooke Mueller are seen below with Max and his twin brother Bob. We can only imagine what daddy is whispering to his sons in the photo on the right...

Now, boys, be more careful when you sleep with hookers and search for Internet porn than your father was, okay?

His wife and his son, that is. Not her son, technically.

That honor belongs to Bridget Moynahan, who was none too pleased to hear Gisele Bundchen say adorable John Edward Thomas was "100 percent hers."

Scott and Mason

Cat fight!

All was well with the newlyweds over the weekend, though. Here's Gisele Bundchen, hubby Tom Brady and 20-month-old John strolling around Vancouver ...

During their visit to the Canadian city, Tom and Gisele walked around downtown and then jumped on an AquaBus to visit the Famous Granville Market.

The celebrity news photographer even managed to get this great picture of the hotties and the little guy without being shot at. Good times all around.

As for Moynahan, she's in town filming Ramona and Beezus (with Selena Gomez, who's been frolicking around with her rumored beau Taylor Lautner).

Guess that explains the somewhat random vacation destination.

Well that's one way to put divorce rumors to rest.

Instead of going their separate ways, as has been whispered for weeks, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are pooling their DNA yet again.

The couple is expecting twin daughters! Via a surrogate mother!

"The entire family is overjoyed. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are happily anticipating the birth of their twin daughters later this summer with the generous help of a surrogate," the actors' publicists said in a statement.

Sarah Jessica Parker, 44, and Matthew Broderick, 47, who also have a son, 6-year-old James Wilkie, had been trying unsuccessfully to expand their brood.

"At a certain point, they were presented with an alternative," an E! source says.

"They could have kept trying on their own, but they have always wanted to have more children and ultimately felt this was the best way to go."

Parker plans to take some time off after the twins' arrival - but not much. She intends to start shooting the Sex and the City sequel sometime this summer.

Broderick was rumored to have cheated on Parker last summer, sparking a long string of rumors that the long-married couple was on the verge of a split.

Guess not. Congrats to the happy, expectant parents!

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, who recently announced she and husband Chris Ivery are expecting, showed off the beginnings of a baby bump - and her two adorable pet poodles Valentino and Gigi - while visiting a friend in Hollywood.

She's pretty cute as pregnant people go ...

How Ellen's pregnancy will be written into Grey's Anatomy, if it is at all, remains to be seen. Will Dr. Meredith Grey become pregnant also? Will the actress take a leave of absence? Will the producers use camera tricks or other ploys?

The latter appears to be the producers' choice for Pompeo's pregnant co-star Chyler Leigh, whose character, Lexie, was nervously stuffing her face last episode.

Such a technique has also been pioneered on How I Met Your Mother, while Gossip Girl opts for the neck-up and overdressed approach for Kelly Rutherford.

Looking surprisingly lucid and maybe even remembering where she was at the moment, new Candie's model Britney Spears made an appearance at the brand's VIP Lounge backstage at her concert venue as the Circus pulled into L.A.

In addition to upping her meds, the conservatorship handlers even brought out a couple of props - they go by Sean Preston and Jayden James - for some cute photo ops!

FAMILY FUN: Britney Spears with Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2.

Wow, how time flies. Those little guys are almost getting too big to cuddle! Too bad Ryan Seacrest's rumor that someone got Britney Spears pregnant was false.

Just give it time, though. We've seen how Chase Benz looks at her.

Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl is in baby nirvana right now as he and his wife Jordyn have welcomed their second baby, a girl. She was born April 17.

Harper Willow Grohl - named after Grohl's great-uncle Harper Bonebrake - is 7 pounds, 8 ounces, 20 inches and long and "loud as hell," Grohl says.

Kevin and Jayden James Federline

The couple, who wed in 2003, are also parents to Violet, 3. Dave and his wife, who goes by Jordyn Blum, announced the pregnancy in October.

Grohl, who was the drummer for Nirvana before forming the Foos later in his career, played tunes for his first daughter before she was born.

"She likes The Beatles. Doesn't really get down The Beach Boys. Digs Mozart," the Grammy-Award winning musician said of his then-unborn child.

This has been a heck of a busy week for celebrity baby news, with Julie Chen announcing she's pregnant and Kimberly Williams-Paisley giving birth.

Congrats to Harper's groovy parents!
