:: KATIE PRICE has thanked fans for their messages after she announced her pregnancy.

The glamour girl is expecting her fourth child - her first with new husband Kieran Hayler - and the congratulations have been pouring in.

She tweeted: “Thank you soo much for all the lovely messages xxxx.”

Katie’s pregnancy comes just weeks after she and Kieran tied the knot and while she confessed it came as a “shock”, she told The Sun they are “over the moon”.

Katie, 34, is already mum to Junior, seven, and Princess Tiaamii, five, from her marriage to PETER ANDRE, and 10-year-old Harvey from her relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke.

:: SIR ELTON JOHN has sung the praises of Oscar winner ADELE.

The London-born singer, who already has a clutch of Grammys to her name, added to her awards haul at the ceremony, when she won Best Original Song for Skyfall.

And speaking from the red carpet at his annual Aids fundraiser viewing party, Sir Elton said the 24-year-old was the epitome of what “an entertainer should be”.

“She’s authentic,” he explained

“She doesn’t lip-synch, she comes on and she sings, she’s the real deal.

“She’s not slick, she’s human, she’s imperfect, she’s what every entertainer should be.”

:: CHRISTINA APPLEGATE has married her longtime love MARTYN LENOBLE.

The couple - who have been together for more than four years and have a two-year-old daughter, Sadie - tied the knot in Los Angeles at the weekend, reports People.

Her rep said Anchorman actress Christina and musician Martyn exchanged vows “surrounded by family in a private ceremony at their home”.

It’s the second marriage for Christina, 41, who was with director Johnathon Schaech until 2007.

Christina has had an eventful few weeks, as earlier this month she announced she was quitting her TV show Up All Night.

:: KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST are apparently having a baby girl.

The reality TV star and the rapper haven’t opened up about the sex of their unborn baby but Us Weekly reports that they have discovered they’re having a daughter and are thrilled.

A source said: “They’re over the moon! Kanye always wanted a girl.”

An insider told “Kim has always dreamed of having a little girl and now she has her wish! Everyone is so excited. Now it’s pink, pink, pink!”

Kim, 32, and Kanye, 35, are expecting their new arrival in July.

:: QUVENZHANE WALLIS has bagged the coveted role of orphan Annie in the new film adaptation of the musical.

The nine-year-old Beasts Of The Southern Wild actress - who lost out to JENNIFER LAWRENCE for the best actress Oscar at the weekend - takes over the role from WILLOW SMITH, who recently opted out of the movie, reports Us Weekly.

Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures, said: “Quvenzhane Wallis is a true star and we believe her portrayal as Annie will make her a true worldwide star.”

Quvenzhane was previously rumoured to be among the frontrunners for the part after Willow decided against it.

:: CHANNING TATUM has revealed that his first child will be born in London.

The 32-year-old’s wife JENNA DEWAN-TATUM is expecting their baby, and Channing said she will probably give birth in the UK as they live here while he films Jupiter Ascending.

“We’re going to actually have the baby in London while I’m shooting so there will be no downtime whatsoever after that,” he told RYAN SEACREST on the Oscars red carpet.

Channing will star in the Wachowskis’ upcoming sci-fi epic alongside MILA KUNIS, EDDIE REDMAYNE and SEAN BEAN.
