Britney Spears, 26, is planning to fly to her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana today as her pregnant sister Jamie Lynn, 17, prepares to give birth. Britney is reportedly staying home for at least a month.
Britney is still involved in the conservatorship court case involving her father Jamie’s legal control over her fortune. On Tuesday, a L.A. court commissioner pushed back a July 31 hearing regarding this case.
The court commissioner said Britney will be on vacation and won’t be back in time to participate in crucial meetings. Also, at Tuesday’s hearing, the court commissioner granted Jamie permission to sell the singer’s six-bedroom home in Studio City, California.
We hope the Spears sisters are able to support each other in the next few weeks and we await Jamie Lynn’s birth announcement.

Paz Vega was spotted shopping at Chanel with her 1-year-old son Orson in Madrid, Spain.
Salma Hayek was honored at Tuesday’s Women in Film Crystal+Lucy Awards. She reflected on this special time in her life,
“I’m 41 now. And I have to say, it is the best time in my life.”
That prompted Jada Pinkett Smith, another honoree, along with their fellow costars from the upcoming chick flick, The Women to shout out, “You look good!”
Hayek, who gave birth to daughter Valentina Paloma last September said she is finally coming into her own,
“I have learned to enjoy time to be a woman. I have learned to enjoy how to do the most that I can with what I have. It is a good thing to be a 41-year-old Latina woman in America.”
Salma has already learned one of the most important lessons for busy mom’s,
“I delegate a lot more. I’m very lucky because I have great people around me.”

Australian pop star Peter Andre gives us some insight on what it’s like potty training his 3-year-old son Junior in New! Magazine this week. Peter and model wife Katie Price are parents to Harvey, 6, whose biological father is footballer Dwight Yorke, Junior, 3, and Princess Tiaamii, 1 on June 29.
Junior is still giving me grief over his potty training and I’m currently trying to encourage him to wear his big nappy pants so that he feels grown up. The thing is, he always asks me to go to the loo with him. Then he tricks me by going, but then without fail he does a poo in his pants afterwards! He knows exactly what he’s doing, the little monkey. I bet Princess will be potty trained before him!

On his name Harvey Halfpenny:
J: “Craig is Halfpenny outside of work too. He took my surname when we got married because, being the youngest of three girls, I was the last Halfpenny in the family and really wanted to keep it.”
C: “I’d always really loved the name anyway, and to me it was an honor and privilege to take Jill’s name. I don’t see why it should always be the woman who changes. But I have had some quite strong reactions when I’ve told people – especially from men.”
J: “It was Craig’s decision to give Harvey the middle name Rhys – he thought it would be cool if his initials were HRH.”
C: “His Royal Halfpennyness!”
On looking forward to milestones:
J: “I can’t wait to hear him speak. I want to know what he sounds like. And just getting to know him, really; discovering his personality.”
C: “I’m already picturing him racing around the house in his muddy wellies. I’m looking forward taking him places and teaching him things. I can’t wait to hear him laugh. I’m excited about everything – all of it.”
On having more children:
J: “I would definitely like to have more than one, maybe two, hopefully three . . .”
C: “We were already talking about having another one a week after Harvey was born. And it would be nice if there wasn’t too large a gap between them.”

British TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson and husband husband Brian Monet, introduced their newborn son, Malcolm in this week’s Hello! Magazine. Malcolm is the fourth child for Jonson, 40, and the first for her husband Brian Monet.

Malcolm Charles Tripp Monet was born on June 7 weighing 10lbs.

On the birth: “I don’t think I could have had a better labor although I did hemorrhage heavily afterwards. The great thing was that the labor started naturally which was very important for me because I was induced with Cameron and Bo and had a Caesarean section with Martha. This time I had an epidural but could still feel when it was time to push which was very important to me because I wanted to experience a natural labour.”
On choosing a name: “Malcolm was an early suggestion from my American husband. I told him that Malcolm was not a cool name in Britain but gradually I warmed to the idea! His middle name is Charles, which is Brian’s middle name and also the name of our dear friend Charles Worthington. And the third name is Tripp, the character played by Donald Sutherland in the TV series Dirty Sexy Money.”
On how the children have reacted: “Martha looks at him with incredulity as if to say, ‘This is a living doll.’ She said: ‘You can stick your fingers in his mouth because he has no teeth but you mustn’t give him a Chinese burn!’ Bo is a possessive mother hen and cannot get enough of him. And Cameron, who is nearly 14 and could have easily been quite disinterested in him, held him and just wept. They are all thrilled with him.”
On Malcolm completing the family: “Yes completely. Before it was me and my children, however much Brian loved and cared for them – and he feels complete love and responsibility for them – but Malcolm’s arrival means we are all related. He is the cement that connects us all. Plus he gives more meaning and importance to Brian’s role in the family. It feels as if we are all in this together.”
On plans for more children: “The first thing I thought when Malcolm was born and was laying on my stomach was, ‘Oh my God I want to do this again.’ I just love this feeling of having a child but with my increasing age and tiredness and having to consider the other children, I think four children is more than I could have hoped for and we should stop there. But who knows? Come and see us next year!”
