Anna Nicole Smith is pregnant

Anna Nicole Smith is expecting a baby girl, according to the baby's father - paparazzo Larry Birkhead. "I have been told that I am expecting a child, I have seen the ultrasound and have spoken to doctors," Birkhead told TMZ. "I am very excited about the possibility of becoming a father." The photographer has previously denied the rumor, but said yesterday that he had been pressured to do so by Anna Nicole's lawyer, Howard K. Stern. "Anna wants that guy completely out of her life and obviously he is having trouble dealing with it. You'll find out soon enough [if she's pregnant]," said Stern. Birkhead confirmed the pregnancy after Stern's statement, saying, "I was not going to discuss the matter publicly, but since Howard K. Stern is attempting to bash me... Howard needs to get past his own jealousy about the relationship between myself and his only client." A source said Stern is denying the news because Anna Nicole wishes to make money off announcing the pregnancy herself.

Jenny McCarthy avoids Carrey romance questions

Jenny McCarthy avoided questions about her rumored relationship with funnyman Jim Carrey during her appearance today on The View. "No comment," she said when asked. "Does that ever work? The funny thing is I've never said it in my whole life!" When pressed by Joy Behar to confirm that she is dating "a well-known comedian who makes funny faces who is not Jerry Lewis," the former Playmate said people could "look it up online," and "Let's move on to the next topic." McCarthy and Carrey have been reportedly dating since December and were recently spotted sharing a cosy dinner in LA.

KFed cleans up and talks

Kevin Federline got a makeover for a spread in Item magazine promoting his new album. Some excerpts from the article include:

On the public: "I should just put a bulls-eye on my back. If I stay home and take care of my kids, then I'm a loafer, not a good father. If I try to have a career, nobody thinks I'm caring for my family. I can't win."

On rumors: "You'll never see that guy they say cheats or goes partying all the time. If I'm there and I'm out at a club, I am there for a reason. I am not there to mingle with women. All that shit is done to me. I did that when I was 21."

On his children: "It's completely unfair when a child is brought into this world and now he's already looked at as a prince. My kids are going to have to learn what a real job is, what life is. You don't have it easy with me. Period... My kids are going to work at Taco Bell, dammit."

On his image: "I wish people would ask me about my career. Usually it's 'How's the wife and kids?' Not that I mind, that's my pride and joy. But it would be nice for people to look at me as an artist. The day they judge me as an artist, a CEO, as somebody, not Britney Spears's husband, that's the day I am looking forward to."

Is KFed leaking info to the press?

Britney Spears allegedly suspect that husband Kevin Federline may be responsible for some of the leaks to the tabloid press about the couple's private life. "Britney knows Kevin tells his friends information, knowing they will leak it to the tabloids," a source told US magazine. "They sell stories for money... She is sick of him using her for them to profit." The popstar is also peeved because KFed recently bought a $300,000 watch without telling her first. "All he does is work on his music and try to find ways to get out," a source says. "That is all he cares about. It has taken a big toll on their marriage because he's not always there for her and he used to be."
