Jessica Simpson is pregnant with her second child just seven months after having daughter Maxwell, it has been claimed.

The 32-year-old mother, who has dropped four stone since giving birth in April, is not thought to have planned the pregnancy.

'It definitely wasn't planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again', a source revealed to Us Weekly.

Good news: Jessica Simpson is expecting her second child
It will be the second baby for the Fashion Star mentor and fiance Eric Johnson.

'She really is overjoyed!', said the source.

According to TMZ, the star lost a staggering 60 pounds on a healthy eating plan filled with low-fat smoothies, protein and plenty of vegetables as part of a $4million sponsorship with Weight Watchers.

Jessica Simpson has lost a staggering 60 pounds after embarking on a healthy eating plan

The nutritious plan, obtained by TMZ, was devised by her former private chef and adheres to the WeightWatchers point system where each food has a 'points value' based on calories and fat content.

The plan, featuring dishes such as super low calorie egg white omelettes, chicken satays, whipped chick peas, soba noodles and shrimp skewers, has clearly worked wonders.

On top of her healthy eating regime, Jessica has been spotted hitting the gym hard in recent weeks

Her diet began in July with a 15-day smoothie diet consisting of five days of three smoothies a day, gradually working in snacks and meals over time.

On Thanksgiving Jessica shared a card on her official website and Twitter page with the message: ‘I am so grateful for my new lil family! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!’

It is unclear whether Jessica spent Thanksgiving with other members of her famous family.

MailOnline have contacted Jessica for a comment.

Sporty Spice Mel Chisholm was reduced to selling her latest musical offering on home shopping channel QVC, after radio bosses refused to play her latest single, it has been claimed.

Performing Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now the 38-year-old looked slimmer than ever with her pitch perfect voice singing the much-loved 1969 classic.

Stages is the latest offering from the mother-of-one who has released six solo albums since the Spice Girls finished in a bid to become a more serious musician.

Classic: Mel C gave an impressive performance of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now

And Mel, who has her own record label, seemed determined to give the performance of her life in a serious outfit of a white blouse and black trousers.

This new album even features a duet with fellow Spice Girl Emma Bunton and it is billed as: 'The perfect gift for music lovers'.

It is made up mostly covers of classic tunes but has relatively little radio play since it's release on September 7.

As well as releasing an album Mel announced last week she is taking part in The Justice Collective for the Hillsborough tribute single, 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' which will be released December 17.

The single features a stellar line-up of artists including Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Paloma Faith, Eliza Doolittle and Beverley Knight.

'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' is produced by the Award-winning Guy Chambers, with all proceeds from single sales going towards the Hillsborough Families legal costs in their fight for justice.

Meanwhile hot on the heels of their much-hyped reunion at the Olympics closing ceremony, the Spice Girls have joined forces again.

The musical extravaganza based around their songs starts previews this week and opens next month.

Written by Jennifer Saunders, it’s part pointed comment on celebrity culture; part emotional journey where the heroines ‘discover who they are’; part just an excuse to sing Zig-a-zig-ah. There’s a bit of confusion as all three leap in to sum up the essence of the show.

‘We didn’t invent Girl Power, you know,’ Geri Halliwell has said earnestly. ‘People say we did, but it was around for a long time before us. I’ve been thinking recently that it probably goes back to Cleopatra. She was the head of Egypt but the Roman Empire tried to bring her down. She wasn’t having it.’

The girls admit that the new music industry is like the end of an era

It seems Rihanna is more than happy to give fans an insight into her bedroom antics.

Having made headlines by tweeting a half-naked picture of Chris Brown on her bed on Saturday, the singer went one step better with her own topless masterpiece on Sunday.

Rihanna shed her top and left her black hot pants on, posing for the camera with her bare back exposed from the waist up.

She's got back: Rihanna tweeted a topless picture of herself a day after posting a half-naked picture of Chris Brown lying face down on an unmade bed

Her face was turned provocatively over her shoulder, giving one of her famous 'come hither' looks beneath the cascading hair.

Behind her stood a clothes rack with a few items on their hangers and some boxes and next to her was a bed with white quilt and pillows.

Rihanna posted the black and white photo on her Twitter page along with the message, '#LondonNightLife.'

Naked weekend: On Saturday Rihanna tweeted a photo of Chris lying in bed naked from the waist up among Simpsons memorabilia

While 24-year-old Rihanna has yet to confirm her relationship with Chris, 23, is back on, her topless picture of him sprawled on her bed among Simpsons memorabilia is a pretty good indication that they spent the better part of Saturday night together.

In the picture Chris wore a blue knit cap that hid his head from view, but his bare back was a canvas of tattoos.

His blue jeans were pulled down over his bum showing his navy briefs.

The star's baseball cap and Bart Simpson jacket were tossed nearby on the unmade bed when only hours before Chris had tweeted a photograph of himself wearing these very things.

Rihanna did little to hide her resumed romance with the rapper by spending the Thanksgiving holiday with him in Berlin, Germany.

The Bajan beauty attended Chris' concert in the German capital before heading over to his after-party where she was seen taking shots and hanging out with the controversial hip hop star, who was charged of assaulting Rihanna in 2009.

The pair, who can be heard duetting on a song together on Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic, insist they are now just friends.

Now that her own 777 tour is over, Rihanna is in London where she made an appearance on The X Factor Live Results Show on Sunday at Fountain Studios.

Back with Chris? Rihanna has yet to confirm she's resumed her romance with the controversial rapper, but her racy tweets certainly reveal they are

Rupert Sanders has been unceremoniously dumped from the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.

Studio bosses are said to have had to make a choice between the married director and Kristen Stewart... and they chose the 22-year-old actress.

It would have clearly been incredibly awkward if the pair - who were caught kissing after making the film - had to work together again as both are desperately trying to re-build their relationships with the partners they cheated on.

Ousted: Rupert Sanders, pictured in LA on Friday with daughter Skyla, has been axed from the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel but Kristen Stewart has been kept on to reprise her leading role

So Sanders got the chop, according to Radar Online.

Apparently because Sanders is spending all his time trying to make amends with his wife Liberty Ross, who was rumoured to have wanted a divorce after the scandal broke, he did not want to be attached to the project anyway.

A close source said: 'The script has already been written and production will begin late next year.'

'However, Rupert Sanders definitely won't be a part of the project.

'Rupert didn't want to be a part of it to begin with because he is desperately still trying to save his marriage. The search is still on for a new director.'

Tough decision: Studio bosses had to choose between the director and Kristen and opted to keep the actress after the pair were caught having an affair during the summer

Father-of-two Sanders, 41, was photographed kissing Kristen in his car during the summer and after the cheating scandal became public, the Twilight star was forced to issue an apology to boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

In a statement she said: I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.

'This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob.

'I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.'

Winning her back: Following the cheating scandal Sanders' wife Liberty Ross threatened divorce according to reports. He is said to be desperately trying to make amends

Despite her Kristen claiming the tryst happened only once there were several reports that the fling had been going on for 'months'.

While Sanders' personal future remains uncertain Kristen and Robert seem to be back on track.

The pair were spotted at JFK airport in New York on Friday after reportedly spending the Thanksgiving break with Robert's family in London.

The couple had earlier been spotted checking in at Heathrow airport in London on Friday for a flight to New York where they happily queued up with other passengers before taking their seats in first class.

The trip to London came after it was revealed 26-year-old Robert’s older sisters Lizzy and Victoria have finally forgiven Kristen for cheating on their brother with Sanders.

A source said: 'It was really important for Kristen to win back the love and trust of Rob's family, and she has done just that.

'They are all back on really good terms - even better than before. Kristen reached out to Rob's sisters and expressed how sorry she was.

'They are proud of how far she has come and they know she has been treating their brother like gold.'

They have endured months of scandal and speculation about their relationship following Kristen Stewart's fling with married director Rupert Sanders.

But it seems the 22-year-old actress has put the final seal on her reconciliation with Robert Pattinson.

According to reports, the couple spent Thanksgiving in London together with the British actor's family and the pair were spotted jetting into New York's JFK airport on Friday.

Stewart sported black rimmed glasses and wore her brown hair pulled into a high ponytail as she carried a shoulder bag through the terminal.

Like her boyfriend, she wore jeans and trainers and completed her casual look with a grey wool cardigan under a black blazer.

Perhaps wanting to stay incognito, Pattinson kept his sunglasses firmly on, even after the couple stepped out in the dark evening to their waiting vehicle.

Reconciliation: The celebrity couple are back together following Stewart's fling with director Rupert Sanders

The low-key couple had earlier been spotted checking in at Heathrow airport on Friday for a flight to New York where they happily queued up with other passengers before taking their seats in first class.

One excited fan tweeted: 'Look who’s on my plane!!! Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart!! We just arrived at the same time they were behind me in the line!”

Another fan claimed her mother had been working as an air hostess, looking after the pair on the flight.

'She's just told me apparently R Patz so lovely chatted whole flight. Kristen slept most of it,' the fan tweeted.

The trip to London came after it was revealed 26-year-old Robert’s older sisters Lizzy and Victoria have finally forgiven Kristen for cheating on their brother with Sanders, who directed the actress in the film Snow White & The Huntsman, which was released back in May this year.

A source said: 'It was really important for Kristen to win back the love and trust of Rob's family, and she has done just that.

'They are all back on really good terms - even better than before. Kristen reached out to Rob's sisters and expressed how sorry she was.

'They are proud of how far she has come and they know she has been treating their brother like gold.'

The pair have been busy promoting the last Twilight film Breaking Dawn Part 2, and were pictured enjoying a trip ten pin bowling together after attending the Berlin premiere of the film last week.

The Twilight trio kicked off a week-long of premieres last Monday, starting off in Los Angeles.

Stewart, Pattinson and co-star Taylor Lautner then headed across the Atlantic for Wednesday's London opening, before taking to the red carpet in Madrid on Thursday.

It has been an exhausting schedule, punctuated by TV appearances, and more public scrutiny on the couple's relationship status following her cheating scandal.

Baker's wife Sue Radford knows what it is to have a bun in the oven - she has just given birth to her 16th child.

The 37-year-old supermum now has nine sons and seven daughters since welcoming little Casper into the world just over a month ago - in a labour that took just 16 minutes.

But incredibly, being Britain's biggest family alone is not enough for Sue, who told husband Noel as soon as she came home from hospital: 'I want another.'

The couple, who together run a bakery in Morecambe, Lancashire, are completely self-sufficient and receive no state benefits.

Big family: (1) Chris, 23 (2) Sophie, 18 (3) Chloe, 17 (4) Jack, 15 (5) Daniel, 13 (6) Luke, 11 (7) Millie, 10 (8) Katie, 9 (9) James, 8 (10) Ellie, 7 (11) Aimee, 6 (12) Josh, 4 (13) Max, 3 (14) Tilly May, 2 (15) Oscar, 1 (16) Casper, 1 month

They live in a nine-bedroom former care home in the town which has an industrial-sized washing machine and a giant fridge to keep the mountains of food the family get through every day.

Food costs the couple £250 a week. Each day the family eats three loaves of bread, two boxes of cereal and 18 pints of milk while an average supper can include 16 pork chops, 15lbs of potatoes, three cabbages and 30 carrots.

At home: They live in a nine-bedroom former care home in the town which has an industrial-sized washing machine and a giant fridge to keep the mountains of food the family get through every day

Bundle of joy: Casper was born on October 3 after a 16-minute labour before they bought him back to their family house, a nine-bedroom former care home

Get in line: Each day the family eats three loaves of bread, two boxes of cereal and 18 pints of milk while and average supper can include 16 pork chops, 15lbs of potatoes, three cabbages and 30 carrots

'I just love being a mummy. We are so lucky,' Sue told The Sun. 'I get very emotional when I see the children all together.

'I know people stare. Some think they won't get the attention they need, but people don't realise how dedicated we are... And maybe we'll be lucky enough to have more.'

The couple began their family unexpectedly early when they were teenagers and she was still at school. For other couples this might have spelled disaster, but not for the Radfords, whose eldest son Christopher is now 23.

What a load: James, eight, Katie, nine, Ellie, seven, Aimee, 11, and Chloe, 17, with their washing at the family's industrial-sized machine

In each other's footsteps: Food to feed the brood costs the couple some £250 a week

Sue finished school and they married when she was 18, planning to have 'perhaps another one or two' children.

Once Sophie, 18, and Chloe, 17, had arrived, however, the couple discovered they were enjoying parenthood so much that they just kept going.

It was after the arrival of Jack, 15, and while Mrs Radford was pregnant with Daniel, 13, that the couple found their current house - a nine-bedroom Victorian former old people's home that was in need of work.

And sure enough it wasn't long before with each new room they decorated, there were children to share it.

In quick succession they had Luke, 11, Millie, ten, Katie, nine, James, eight, Ellie, seven, and Aimee, six.

Then, after a brief gap, came Josh, four, Max, three, and Tilly May, two, followed.
A year ago Sue gave birth to Oscar before Casper was born last month at a healthy 8lb and 8oz.

Mr Radford works hard running the bakery, which is just a short drive from home, while Mrs Radford helps out whenever she's not on maternity leave.

And their extended family just got bigger after Sophie gave birth to Sue and Noel's first grandchild Daisy.

They've enjoyed their fair share of ups and downs throughout the course of their 18-month on-off relationship.

But it would seem The Only Way Is Essex's Sam Faiers and Joey Essex are more smitten than ever if their recent trip to Dubai is anything to go by.

Kissing and cuddling for all to see, the evidently loved-up couple put on an amorous display as they frolicked in the sea at Grosvenor House Hotel.

Smitten: Joey Essex and Sam Faiers put on an amorous display as they hit the beach at Dubai's Grosvenor House Hotel

Sam looked absolutely incredible as she flaunted her hourglass curves in a skimpy black bikini.

Showing off her killer tan, the 21-year-old reality star showed off her toned stomach in a pair of barely-there string bottoms and made the most of her assets with a halterneck push-up top.

With her blonde hair extensions flowing around her shoulders and a broad smile on her face, the former glamour model looked happy and relaxed as she enjoyed a spot of winter sun.

Sam also seemed to be going for the natural look for her day at the beach, casting aside her usual over-the-top false eyelashes in favour of a make-up free look.

Stunning: Sam flaunted her killer tan and incredible bikini body in a tiny black bikini

Joey opted for a pair of typically short and tight black swimming shorts as he strolled along the beach with his lady.

And the 23-year-old Essex boy was evidently regaling the boutique owner with some humourous tales, as Sam seemed to be in hysterics as the pair walked along the white sand hand-in-hand.

After playing around on the beach for a little while, the duo took to the sea, where they couldn't seem to keep their hands off each other.

Playtime: The TOWIE couple seemed to be joking around as they enjoyed their day out at the beach

Stronger than ever: The loved-up pair have made no secret of their desire to get married

Kissing passionately with their arms wrapped around each other, Joey made sure to give his girlfriend a cheeky little pat on the bottom.

And the pair seemed to have a whale of a time on their winter sun break.

Writing on her Twitter page earlier this week, Sam said: 'Having such a lovely time :-) feel so relaxed #wintersun #dubai love to u all back home.'

Romantic: Both Sam and Joey took to their Twitter pages to tell their fans what a great time they had in Dubai

Sun-soaked: Sam and Joey were enjoying a winter break ahead of returning to The Only Way Is Essex for two live Christmas specials next month

The curvaceous blonde certainly seemed sad to be heading home, she said: 'Home time back to Essex :-( had an amazing holiday with my @JoeyEssex_.'

Meanwhile, Joey appeared to have had a surprise up his sleeve for the lady in his life.

He tweeted: 'Having a nice relaxed time in Dubia! Weather is perfect. Off out tonight to Surprise @SamanthaFaiers ;-) .. She dousnt no anything.. Shhh. (sic)'

Feeling relaxed? The couple couldn't resist a spot of posing as they later kicked back on their sun loungers

What ARE you doing? Sam looked on fondly as her beau messed around in the surf

Although Joey and Sam split up for four months last year, they have recently appeared stronger than ever and have even talked about tying the knot in the future.

Joey previously told New magazine: 'We're stronger than ever. It was a bit too much the first time but the time apart helped us realise how much we actually love each other. We've both grown up a bit.'

Sam The Sun newspaper: 'We are going to get married soon but I’m waiting for him to ask me first. It is up to him. When we get married we will be Mr and Mrs Essex!'

Pucker up! Sam and Joey certainly made sure to put on a passionate display as they frolicked in the sea
