Heidi Klum, who is awaiting the birth of her second child with Seal, told Life magazine, "We want to have a lot of children. (Seal) always says that he finds me the most beautiful when I'm pregnant."

In her native Germany, Heidi and her family are of great interest. She says, "In Germany – and this started with a newspaper headline – they call us 'The Patchwork Family. I was like, 'Hmm, is this an insult or is this positive?' I talked to Seal about it, and we're, like, it's actually kind of great – we're all different shades and we came together and we all love each other."

Another Baby for Puck and Betty!

David Rainey, best known as the wild guy "Puck" from MTV's The Real World: San Francisco, and his wife, Betty, welcomed a new baby boy on August 6th.

The couple named their son Rocco Kokopelli Rainey. The middle name is an homage to a prehistoric Native American fertility deity. Rocco weighed in at 8 lbs., 9 oz. This is the second child for Puck, 38, and Betty, 39, who have a 4 year old son named Bogart.

Puck stated that his son "looks like a combination of both of us, which is probably lucky for him because I'm kind of ugly." He also tells People "I love babies. Having your own baby gives you a capacity to love something a lot differently. I didn't have the capacity to love things in the same way before I had a kid. I had dogs and fish and plants, but never a kid. I had little Bogart and it kind of changed me a lot. And now, Rocco. I really just like looking at him."

Puck, Betty and kids live in Mission Hills, California. Puck is currently managing the SPAK motorcycle shop in L.A. and runs a custom granite business along with a friend in Fremont, CA.

Looks like Puck is all grow up!

Congratulations Puck and Betty!

Matt Lauer and Annette Roque Expecting Number 3!

Matt Lauer's wife, Annette Roque, is pregnant with the couples third child.

Matt, 48, confirmed the pregnancy in an interview with Sunday's New York Times magazine. Lauer and Roque, 40, have a 5 year old son named Jack and an almost 3 year old daughter named Romy. Matt told the Times magazine, "I was on Today for five years before I had children. And back then the job took up a larger slice of the pie graph of my life than was healthy. When I had kids, that immediately changed. It flipped."

Lauer, in a past interview with People, spoke about his shifting priorities: "Now I define myself by what happens when I walk in that door after work. (Jack) looks at you and goes, 'Papa.' He wants a hug, and then he wants to show you his (toy) planes. My son is a rascal. He'll have a glass of water in the living room. You'll say, 'Jack, do not pour that water.' And he'll look at you and … he'll pour it." Little sister Romy, Dad said, "is the polar opposite. Incredibly sweet."

Matt Lauer and Annette Roque, a former model, were married in October 1998.

Gwyneth Paltrow on Losing Baby Weight!

Every woman worries about losing her post-pregnancy weight, even Gwyneth Paltrow.

Gwyneth's interview in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar tells about how she is dealing with losing those post-baby pounds. Paltrow says she is less stressed after giving birth to Moses than she was with Apple (now 2 years old). Gwyneth says, "The first time, you are horrified. It's all lovely when you are pregnant; but when you are not pregnant and you haven't been for a couple of months and you are still carrying tons of extra weight and everything's all hanging and sagging, you think, How is this ever going to go back? But it does. If you do a lot of working out."

Paltrow, 33, gained 40 lbs. with each pregnancy and says she lost about 20 lbs. by the time she came out of the hospital. Gwyneth added, "With Apple I kept the extra 20 pounds on until she was three months old, and then it came off. And that's exactly what's happening now." She says she has been exercising, "but not dieting, because I am a milk machine." Commenting on people thinking her figure is back again, Paltrow adds, "They should see the cellulite on my thighs right now."

Gwyneth tells how she combats the stress of motherhood: " Once the kids are in bed, I come downstairs, pour myself a glass of red wine and sit in the garden."

Courtney told People, "We're hoping it will happen." She also revealed in Marie Claire's August issue that "I'm not really ready right this second. But I'll probably do it one more time."
