Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner, David Burtka, are planning to have their first child together via a surrogate mother, according to reports.

These reports turned out to be false.

The 2009 Tony Awards host and hilarious How I Met Your Mother star has been with Burtka since 2004. So taking the next step would make sense.

The agency handling the surrogacy was said to be Growing Generations, the same one used by Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker.

That surrogacy made headlines earlier today when a pair of Ohio cops were busted for allegedly plotting a break-in at the surrogate's home.

As far as David and Neil's baby is concerned, Star quoted a source saying they had gone through the surrogacy process and been approved.

Apparently, this was untrue.

“Neil and David were so relieved and excited once they were approved,” says a source reportedly close to the couple. “Neil and David can’t wait to hold their baby; they don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl. They just want a healthy child.”

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the couple just released a statement debunking these rumors. The rep said: “If Star says it, then it must be true! No, we are not currently expecting a baby. Maybe someday ...”

Police chiefs from two neighboring, eastern Ohio towns are being investigated after allegedly planning a break-in at the home of the surrogate who is carrying the twin daughters of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

According to a local Ohio TV station, officials are investigating whether officers from the adjoining towns of Martins Ferry and Bridgeport, Oh., masterminded a burglary in order to gather info they could then sell to a celebrity gossip publication.

"I'm 100 percent innocent in this and my department is as well," Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter told TV station WTOV in Steubenville.

Carpenter and the other officer reportedly under investigation, Bridgeport Police Chief Chad Dojack, remain on the job as the probe continues.

The alleged plot is the latest incident in a highly scrutinized pregnancy, which Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick announced at the end of April.

Last month, Sarah Jessica Parker said she is concerned about the health of the surrogate mother because of the intense media attention now focused on her.

Parker also said Matthew Broderick is furious about the situation that has potentially put the woman expecting twins on behalf of the stars in jeopardy.

"Matthew and Sarah Jessica have complete faith in the legal system," his publicist said.

"But because it's a criminal investigation, we will not be making any more comment. What I can say is the entire family looks forward to the healthy delivery of their daughters later on this summer."

Enjoying her brief time off in between UK Circus tour dates, Britney Spears took sons Sean Preston, 3 1/2, and Jayden James, 2 1/2, to Hamleys Toy Shop in London.

Talk about a cute picture, even if JJ is a tad old to be rocking the pacifier.

Then again, neither of K-Fed's sons were dropped on their heads at any point during the day, so we can consider the family outing a success. Team Britney!

Here's our girl with the cutest little tykes around ...

The recovering ringleader next hits the stage Wednesday in Manchester, England, before heading to Ireland and France as The Circus Starring Britney Spears rolls on.

So far, reaction to the singer's European tour has been mixed:

  • The Sun, under the headline "All A Brit Dull," called Britney Spears, who is dating her agent Jason Trawick, "completely uninspiring … just a girl walking around, flicking her hair and miming to some average pop songs."
  • The Daily Mirror, however, loved "Britney's Sexy Circus," saying anyone expecting a  wholesome-as-mom's-apple-pie image are in for a rude awakening!"
  • The Guardian opined that "there's something unsexy about all of it, possibly because of something weirdly characterless about the woman at its centre."
  • The Daily Mail, noting some of her well-documented troubles, praised the show and Spears for staging of one of pop's most "remarkable comebacks."
  • Daily Telegraph rock writer Neil McCormick writes: "Lipsynced, autotuned and double tracked, her vocals are as unashamedly pre-recorded as her backing tracks," calling it "the most perfectly plastic pop show ever staged." 

Her critics probably just haven't seen those clips of Sean Preston and Jayden James dancing. Now that would change the minds of even the most ardent haters.

Tony Romo is has won zero career playoff games, but dude is dating Jessica Simpson, so the Dallas Cowboys QB has scored one major "trophy" at least.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with the NFL star to talk about life with girlfriend Jessica Simpson, from their perfect date night to pregnancy rumors!

As for rumors Jessica might be pregnant, Tony Romo says there's "not that I know of," but "I'm sure you guys'll tell me something new soon enough."

As for the perfect date night with Jessica Simpson?

"Probably get a little bite to eat and probably watch a football game," he said. "That's our perfect evening. It's exciting for both of us because I found someone I get to hang with, and she embraces the game and wants to see our team do well.

"It's great to have someone like that."

Tony spoke to ET at a photo shoot for the sportswear company Starter, and he remarked on having to get into "model mode" to shoot the new ad campaign.

"I don't think I'll ever be a model; I don't have any Zoolander poses," he says. "But we'll definitely get out here and have some fun with the Starter stuff."

"As an athlete you know you want to feel comfortable when you're moving around, and have stuff on you that feels natural, and they do a really good job."

For something that feels anything but natural, here are Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson pictures from a recent date night. Looks like barrels of fun (not):

Are Sean and Jayden getting a new daddy?

Britney Spears took a break between concerts to walk around Hyde Park in London yesterday with her adorable sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Sandra and Louis

Accompanying them was none other than the singer's agent and new, confirmed boyfriend, Jason Trawick. Isn't it nice to see her with a stable guy in her life?

Here's the hot mom with her new hot guy:

Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline have yet to comment publicly on the fact that Britney and Jason are dating. Expect a statement from their rep soon.

All we've got to say is, how long before Britney and Jason Trawick walk down the aisle? We're thinking late summer, maybe a nice Labor Day weekend wedding.

We can't wait, what about you?

When Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford became a mom for the second time on Monday, her ex, Daniel Giersch, heard about it the same way we did.

From celebrity news reports online.

Nadya Suleman and Children

The actress, 40, welcomed a daughter, Helena, in Los Angeles on Monday.

But a source says the birth came as a surprise to businessman Giersch, who is currently in midst of a heated divorce with Rutherford, to put it mildly.

Giersch had filed paperwork to be notified when Rutherford goes into labor, says the source. But an insider tells Us Weekly that this did not happen.

The source tells the tabloid that "[Rutherford] failed to tell him and instead he found out this morning on the Internet. He was robbed of an opportunity to be at the hospital when his child is born. He is sad and disappointed."

After two years of marriage, Rutherford filed for divorce from Giersch in January - about a month after announcing she was pregnant with their second child.

The two have since engaged in a nasty war of words over who is the better parent as they continue to fight for custody of their son, Hermes, 2.

Asked at a May 22 hearing if she and Daniel Giersch could have an amicable relationship, Kelly Rutherford told reporters: "I don't see it."

This often happens when you don't call him when you give birth or have a P.I. tail your ex to make sure he keeps the pool cover on.

We're just sayin', Kelly.

Gossip Girl actress Kelly Rutherford, who fans of the show know has looked very pregnant for months now, has given birth to a baby girl, her second child.

Her daughter was born around 10 p.m. Monday in L.A. The little girl's name is Helena Grace Rutherford Giersch. She joins two-year-old brother, Hermes.

Jodie Sweetin, Zoie Herpin

Here's the former Melrose Place star and Hermes last month ...

The father of both children, and the actress' estranged, soon-to-be ex, Daniel Giersch, was sadly (and predictably) not present for the occasion.

Kelly Rutherford filed for divorce from the German businessman in late 2008, citing "irreconcilable differences." She has since hired a P.I. to tail his ass and they have squared off in numerous court battles over custody of Hermes.

The pair split right around the time Rutherford announced in December that she was pregnant with their second child. It only got uglier from there.

Well, in any case, congrats to Kelly and Daniel, even if they become ill at the sight of each other. And give it up for Lily van der Woodsen no longer having to be filmed exclusively from the neck up on Gossip Girl. Woo hoo!

By pretending to Twitter as though he were his newborn son, Lance Armstrong almost ruined a magical moment.

Still, it's easy to forgive the seven-time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor for such lameness. After all, he survived cancer and won the Tour de France seven times!

Yesterday, the cyclist and girlfriend Anna Hansen were all smiles as they brought home Armstrong's fourth kid from the hospital in Aspen, Colorado.

"We have a a house full of family. All here to see the little man," Armstrong Tweeted. "He's so amazing."

There's no word yet on whether Lance, who injured his collar bone during a race this year, is healthy enough to take on the Tour de France field again in July. But we wouldn't bet against him.

Sarah Palin most often makes news for bashing Levi Johnston, giving props to Carrie Prejean, sitting in $2,000 seats at Yankee Stadium despite describing herself as an average hockey mom, talking about seeing Russia from Alaska or some nonsense.

But there was no controversy to be found Sunday when the Alaska Governor paid a visit to Long Island, N.Y., to speak about the joys of raising her son Trig.

Trig Palin, 1, was born with Down syndrome.

"We are just so blessed to have this child in our lives," Palin said before a crowd of about 1,000 people. "What God has shown us with Trig in our lives is 'Yes, every single person has purpose no matter their developmental abilities.'"

Also at the fundraiser for Independent Group Home Living, which supports children and adults with developmental disabilities – were Palin's husband, Todd; their daughter Willow, 14; and Palin's sister Heather Bruce and her autistic son Karcher, 14.

"Having a son being born with Down syndrome is a whole new chapter of our lives," Sarah Palin said, her voice wavering slightly as she continued:

"I tell Todd that God has blessed us, and we don't ask, 'Why me? Why us?' We say at this point, finally – and to be honest with you it's taken a while for us to get to this point - 'Thank you, God for allowing us to recognize the special needs community.'"

"Without Trig this would be absent from us. I am at a point in my life of thanking God for blessing us with this bundle of joy, this typical rowdy 1-year-old."

Palin, in a black and white layered skirt and a black sweater set, arrived to a cheering crowd, and spoke to a group who yelled for her to stop for a chat.

The former Republican nominee for Vice President reiterated a pledge she made during the 2008 election campaign to help those with disabilities.

"Just because our ticket placed second, second out of two," the 45-year-old mother of five said, jokingly, "you still have an advocate for the cause."
