An expectant Kirsty Gallacher rocked the red carpet at the 2009 Pride of Britain Awards in London on Monday (October 5). Kirsty is a Scottish television presenter who began her career as a presenter on Sky Sports News.

Sir Elton John‘s plan to adopt baby Lev has hit a further roadblock after a woman claiming to be his mother insisted “I will not give my baby away,” daily mail reports.
The woman claiming to be Lev’s biological mother, Marina Timoshenko, 25, has reportedly only seen her son once since he was taken into care in May due to her alleged alcoholism. Reports claim that she hopes to regain custody of her son again after overcoming her addictions.
I will not give my baby away to Elton John for any money.” Marina stated. “Lev is a mummy’s boy. He needs em and I have not given up my rights over him. I want to talk to Elton. I want to tell him how much I love Lev. I’m going to overcome my problems. I so much want my babies back.”
The 62-year-old Crocodile Rock singer and his partner David Furnish publicly discussed their hopes to adopt Lev, 15 months, last month after they met the tot at an orphanage in Donetsk, Ukraine.
Reportedly, Lev’s mother has not given up her parental rights, so Lev is not a potential candidate for adoption. Marina, who is HIV positive and separated from Lev’s father, admits she turned to alcohol after experiencing financial problems. Ukrainian social services removed Lev and his brother Artyom, 3, from her home and placed them into care.
Lev’s father Sergey, 31, who served eight years in prison after strangling a 14-year-old girl and leaving her to die in a Russian lake, also stated his disapproval of Elton’s plans: “I don’t want Elton to take my boys. I won’t let Elton take Marina and the children to Britain and be their guardian.”
Where do you think Lev should go? Elton and David or stay in the orphanage until biological mum has overcome her addictions?
Anne Heche was spotted departing LAX airport with her 6-month-old son Atlas on Monday (October 5).
Atlas’ dad is Anne’s former Men In Trees costar James Tupper, who Anne says is “a wonderful father.” So should we expect to hear wedding bells any time soon? “I hope not! I want to stay in love,” the 40-year-old Psycho star recently stated.
“We are eternally engaged,” James says. “That means I have to give her a new ring every year. I’m not saying we’ll never [officially] get engaged, but she likes getting a ring every year.”
Anne is also mom to 7-year-old son Homer from her previous marriage to Coley Laffoon.View Slideshow »»
Actress Alyson Hannigan was calm, cool and collected during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last week, but she reveals that she was anything but on the cross-country flight to New York.
The How I Met Your Mother star brought her 6-month-old daughter Satyana along on her first ever flight, and admits she was very nervous that it might not go so well.
“This was her first plane flight, so I was really nervous,” Alyson said “I went on my Twitter page and I asked for advice. I got some good advice and bad advice. The bad advice was, ‘Leave her at home,’ or ‘Put her in the overhead compartment…’ But good advice that I took was to hand out earplugs to the people around you and say, ‘Hopefully you won’t need these, but just in case here you go!'”
In the end her fellow travelers did need those earplugs – but not because of Satyana.
“The flight was great, she was awesome. She’s a good baby. But the earplugs did come in handy because there was a toddler a couple rows back that screamed the whole time.”

Monty Python star Terry Jones, 67, and his girlfriend Anna Söderström, 26, welcomed a daughter Siri in early September, Telegraph reports.
Addressing concerns that he left his wife of more than 30 years to be with Anna who is 41 years his junior, the Welsh comedian said the comments leave him unaffected:
It doesn’t worry me what anyone says, except when publicity hurts others. I’ve yet to discover how I like having another child as she’s only just born. Anna and I talked about it, obviously, before we decided.” He added, “I don’t think people who have children are acting selfishly or unselfishly. Having a child who’ll be loved, to parents who love each other, is the important thing. I’ve a reasonable chance of living another 20 years, and hope I do, so Siri will be in her 20s.”
Jones already has a 35-year-old daughter, Sally, and a 32-year-old son, Bill, from his previous marriage to Alison Telfer.
