Britney Spears' fertile ex-husband is set to become a father for the sixth time, according to U.S. reports. Kevin Federline's wife Victoria Prince is six months pregnant with the couple's second child, according to TMZ.com.
And it appears he's not hiding the news - Federline, who shares two kids with Spears, posed for pictures for TMZ on Wednesday (11Dec13) next to his wife, who was wearing a shirt that read 'Juan Moore' on the front and 'Federline 6' on the back.
The former dancer-turned-reality TV star also gently patted his partner's belly during the beachside shoot.
Federline, who also has two kids with actress Shar Jackson, and Prince later confirmed the baby news.

The 2014 Screen Actor Guild Award nominees were announced Wednesday morning, and after losing out to Claire Danes for best actress in a drama at the Emmy's this past fall, we're sure Kerry Washington is glad she's got another chance at victory. If we've learned anything from Olivia Pope on Scandal, it's that you never give up (and obviously that you always look amazing while doing so).
Other TV nominees we can expect to see strutting down the red carpet are Kevin Spacey from Netflix's House of Cards, Jessica Lange from American Horror Story, Don Cheadle from House of Lies, and Matt Damon from Behind the Candelbra. Oh, and get ready to see the cast of Arrested Development running amok since they've been nominated for best ensemble in a comedy series.

A musical adaptation of Winona Ryder's cult film Heathers is heading to the New York stage this coming spring (14). The theatre version of the dark comedy, which pitted Ryder's character against a clique of fellow schoolgirls, all named Heather, has been in the works for the past few years and had a brief run for developmental purposes at the Hudson Backstage Theater in Los Angeles recently.
Now, Tony Award-nominated composer Laurence O'Keefe, writer Kevin Murphy and director Andy Fickman have announced plans to unveil the production at the New World Stages venue in the Big Apple from 17 March (14) to 7 September (14).
Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress Kristen Bell had previously been selected as the leading lady in the musical adaptation in 2010, but it's not clear if she will lead the cast.
The news comes four months after plans to take the 1988 movie to the small screen suffered a setback as bosses at U.S. network Bravo decided against picking up a Heathers TV series. The project would have followed the life of the teenage daughter of Ryder's character Veronica.
Last week word hit the streets that Miley Cyrus, daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus, pop star/twerker extraordinaire was on her way to becoming TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year in the reader polls. As in, the definitive human being of 2013. Now on the one hand, you could argue that Miley Cyrus deserves this moment. With her music videos and live performances she’s sparked conversations about racial and cultural appropriation (and misappropriation), feminism (or lack thereof) in pop culture, and she even put Sinead O’Connor back on the map for a moment. So maybe she is the person of the year. But deep down, when we look at the other nominees for TIME’s list, we know there’s something wrong with that. So here are a few ways we can save our culture and make the world a better place, should Miley Cyrus actually become the Person of the Year.
Read Malala Yousafzai’s Book
Miley Cyrus being named Person of the Year is only disturbing in that it highlights the people she beat out. One of those people is Malala Yousafzai, the teenage girl who was targeted by the Taliban for speaking out for the rights of young girls in Pakistan. She survived critical gunshot wounds to the head and continues to speak out as a feminist, though her life is still in danger. She recently got a book deal, and we should all probably read it, whether Miley Cyrus wins Person of the Year or not.
P.S. There's still time to vote for Malala HERE.
Read Any Book, Probably
If Miley wins, it will be proof that we really are living in a time where people just aren't reading enough. If we value the Twerk Queen over some of the other folks on that list, we probably need to read up on those people. Or read anything. Seriously, there are many great books. The Old Man and the Sea, Beloved, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. There are many, many other great books out there. Let's take a step away from Twitter (just for a minute!) and grab a good ol' fashioned book.
Make Sure Any Child You Meet Who Knows The Name ‘Miley Cyrus’ Also Knows The Name ‘Malala Yousafzai’
Mileys Cyrus is the name on everyone's lips right now. Fine, whatever. But you can do your part to make the world a better place by making sure that any child (or adult, for that matter) who mentions or invokes the name of Miley also gets a little lesson in current, twerk-free events. Malala Yousafzai could serve as an especially good lesson.
Donate To Any Scholarship Fund That Isn’t Juicy J’s Scholarship Fund For Twerking
Because nobody out here should be supporting Juicy J's scholarship for twerking. Nobody. Oh, and because there are so many other worthy causes. Angelina Jolie, for example, recently donated a hefty sum to the Malala Fund. Not a bad idea.
Create Your Own Non-Twerking Fund
There are a million ways (big and small) to give back and make the world a better place. Why not use this Miley Cyrus Person of the Year situation to get inspired and make a change? Seriously guys. We can't just let this happen and do nothing.
Actor Kevin Dillon has broken his wrist just weeks before the big screen version of hit TV series Entourage is set to begin filming. The star was spotted in Los Angeles on Tuesday (10Dec13) sporting a cast on his right arm.
The injury comes just a month before the cast of the show, about a young film star and his childhood pals, start shooting the long-awaited movie adaptation in January (14).
He tells TMZ.com, "I broke my wrist. (But) I didn't do it during filming. Not this time."
Dillon previously broke his wrist on the set of Entourage in 2006.
The series, starring Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara and Dillon, wrapped its final season on America's HBO network in 2011.
British comedian Lenny Henry has spoken out in defence of U.K. charity Comic Relief following the broadcast of a documentary which alleged the organisation's money has been invested in the arms, alcohol and tobacco industries. The charity was the subject of a BBC Panorama expose, which aired in the U.K. on Tuesday night (10Dec13), investigating claims that Comic Relief donation money has been ploughed into shares in firms such as weapons company BAE Systems, as well as cigarette and alcohol producers, seemingly in direct conflict with the charity's work.
Henry, a trustee of the organisation and one of its staunchest celebrity supporters, has now taken aim at the documentary-makers, accusing them of undermining Comic Relief's charitable efforts.
He tells the London Evening Standard, "Attacking Comic Relief takes desperately needed support from children, families and old people here in the U.K. and the poorest around the world. Comic Relief has helped save and transform millions of lives over the past 25 years - something we can all be proud of. It's a fantastic organisation. I've seen the work done on the ground many times and I can guarantee the money raised brings real change to real people."
Comic Relief chief executive Kevin Cahill admits the charity does have a "small percentage" of money invested in arms and tobacco companies, but insists the Panorama program has prompted a full review of investment policies, adding to BBC Radio 4's World at One show, "We will do a full review of our policy after this particular programme and these discussions we are having now."
Hip-hop mogul Master P is covering the costs of a funeral for a mother of three who was shot and killed in Louisville, Kentucky, because the tragedy reminds him of his brother's brutal slaying years ago. The rapper has been moved to help the family of Andrea Arnold, whose body was discovered in an alley on 30 November (13).
He reveals news of the crime brought back painful memories of the death of his younger sibling, Kevin Miller, who was robbed and murdered by a drug addict early on in Master P's career.
He has also appealed to locals in Louisville to help police find Arnold's killer before the Christmas holiday to give her family some peace of mind.
He says, "I'm begging the community to come together and find out who did this... That would be the biggest Christmas gift we could give to her (Arnold's daughter) and her other siblings."
Master P is also planning to host a benefit gig at the city's The Gillespie venue this weekend (15Dec13) to raise money for toys and other gifts for children who have lost their parents to violence, reports AllHipHop.com.
The veteran musician isn't the only star to share the wealth during the holiday season - fellow rapper The Game has made it his mission to give away $1 million (£667,000) to worthy causes by Christmas, and recently brought Los Angeles' gang leaders together in a bid to help pay for the funeral of a seven-year-old boy killed in a shoot-out.
Did you hear that? No, it wasn't the wind. That was the sound of hundreds of classics scholars screaming and ripping their hair out after seeing the trailer for the new Hercules movie starring Kellan Lutz. What it depicts seems to be anything except the son of Zeus. As someone who enjoyed reading the Greek and Roman myths throughout high school and college, I'm also a little perturbed at how this movie seems to be depicting him.
Let's start with the build. Lutz looks more like a Twilight character than someone who was the strongest man on the planet. Even Kevin Sorbo looked more the part in the Adventures of Hercules show in the '90s. Here, Lutz looks like a slightly less-built extra from 300. He doesn't look like a man who held the Earth on his shoulders in place of Atlas for a period of time. Lutz's Hercules would get squashed like a grape. Apparently director Renny Harlin told him to have really, really strong abs. Yeah, that's what really stood out in the telling of these myths over the years: Hercules had six-pack abdominals before people even knew what those were.
Secondly, the trailer shows Hercules as a gladiator. This is something that never occurred in either the Greek OR Roman version of Heracles/Hercules that I know of. Now, if this was about a gladiator who took Hercules' name in honor of the legend, then I could understand that, but this is something that goes well off-script.
Thirdly, it seems like the movie makers don't like doing things like including the Greek or Roman Gods. Brad Pitt's Troy was much weaker because of the absence of the deities, which I found confounding, since their actions played huge, huge parts in the Iliad. I looked at the cast list for the movie and there's not one person playing a god, Greek or Roman. Sure, there's Agamemnon, but no gods. Sigh.
Fourthly, I must say I have never been a fan of Harlin, with the exception of Die Hard 2 and maybe Cliffhanger. He also helmed several episodes of the action TV series Burn Notice, Covert Affairs and White Collar, which was surprising since those shows are often entertaining. This movie seems to be his first big-budget affair in a decade and if this movie tanks, he may be back on the small screen in no time flat.
Personally, I'm going to wait for the other version, the one with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Now he's someone I could see with the blood of a god coursing through him.
