Travis Barker, father of two young children (Alabama & Landon) and DJ AM were among six people aboard a Learjet that crashed upon takeoff from a Columbia, South Carolina, airport after midnight Friday. The four others onboard were killed.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane was set to leave the airport, when air traffic controllers saw sparks coming from the plane, which went off the runway, smashed through a fence, crossed a nearby road, slammed into an embankment and caught on fire. Barker had performed the night before with former Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM.
Barker is in critical condition, and was transported to the Augusta Georgia Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia. DJ AM, ex fiance of Nicole Richie, was also injured in the crash and is also listed in critical condition.

“We’re both ready to have another baby – I’d like a few more. Hopefully the weather will be chilled so it will be big jumpers and log fires – let’s see what happens!”
Her 8-yr-old only being around adults,
“Sometimes I feel for him being with adults a lot. We’ve always wanted another baby, but nothing’s happened.
“We’ve talked about adoption. But we’ve made a really good kid together once, so let’s hope we can do it again,”
Adjusting to motherhood,
“Reality hit me hard when we started a family. Then it was: Do I work or not work? I was confused. I didn’t take to pregnancy and motherhood like a duck to water. But it wasn’t post-natal depression because I’ve had friends that have suffered from it dreadfully.
“Motherhood just wasn’t easy for me and I don’t think I was great in his early years, but I adore Woody. He’s so cool, funny and grounded.”
Woody getting older,
“He’s huge – up to my boobs already – with cute surfer hair which I did a disastrous ‘mum cut’ on the other day. He’s going to be a heartbreaker.”

UPDATE: Baby’s name revealed as Elsie on the singer’s blog,
“The birth of little Elsie has been absolutely life changing.Everything has been put into perspective. I now wonder what I was doing with all my spare time ! She’s the love of my life and the main focus in my life now other than my music. It has been the most tormenting time of my life waiting for her, but now she’s here it’s been the best gift I’ve ever received.”
British singer James Morrison became a dad for the first time this week as his partner Gill gave birth to a baby girl. James, 24, recently said in an interview with The Daily Mail,
“I’m getting ready to be a father, which is the biggest thing that’s ever happened to me. I’m very excited by it, but it also makes it easier to get on with other things. It’s not just about me any more.”
