It seems Britain’s highest paid news anchor Natasha Kaplinsky, who just announced that she’s three months pregnant – won’t be receiving any maternity pay.

“Natasha is only paid when she is here, she will not be getting maternity pay.”
Natasha, 35, is expecting her first child with husband Justin Bower – the baby is due in October. She is pictured on her way to work yesterday.

Naomi Watts’ newest film Funny Games is set for release today. This film is special to Naomi because while shooting, her son Alexander “Sasha” now 8-months old was conceived with boyfriend Liev Schreiber. Naomi, 39, reflects on the violence of the film, and being a new mom.

My reason to do this movie was firstly the director, Michael Haneke. I was inspired by him and I understood what he was trying to do. I hope my son and any other children I may have will some day understand my reasoning behind my doing this film.

Has it affected your workload?
Yeah, absolutely. I’ve only done one thing since he was born. It was five weeks on a movie called The International [an espionage thriller directed by Tom Tykwer, co-starring Clive Owen].

Don’t you just love Romeo? He’s with mom Victoria Beckham (who looks so serious) as they listen to the National Anthem before the start of last night’s LA Galaxy game. I’m sure the rest of the clan was close by cheering on their dad David Beckham. As it turns out, Becks played a big part in the 2-0 victory over rival San Jose Earthquakes.
