Thursday gossip roundup: Don’t ask Jennifer Aniston about Brad and Angie’s wedding

Actress Jennifer Aniston arrives at the premiere of Universal Pictures' 'Wanderlust.'

This may not come as the biggest surprise, but Jennifer Aniston doesn’t really want to talk about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s engagement, according to Us Weekly. “She hates it being brought up because she doesn’t really care,” a source says. “She feels Angelina can have him. She just wants to move on.” Aside from the fact that it’s been seven years since Pitt split up with her and took up with Jolie, Aniston has moved on herself with boyfriend Justin Theroux. “Jen’s totally happy with Justin,” says the source. “That’s all in the pas

A month after pregnancy rumors last surfaced, a source is now insisting to E! News that Megan Fox is expecting. It would be the first child for the 25-year-old actress, though she’s also stepmother to husband Brian Austin Green‘s 10-year-old son, Kassius. Parenthood is definitely a topic Fox hasn’t been shy about: “I want at least two, probably three kids,” she recently told Cosmopolitan magazine. “I’ve always been maternal.”

Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley have expanded their family, adopting another daughter, according to People magazine. “Yes they have adopted a baby,” Heigl’s rep confirms. “No further details [are available] at this time.” The couple adopted their first daughter, 3-year-old Naleigh, in 2009. The actress explained earlier this year that this has always been their plan: “Josh and I started talking about it before we were even engaged,” Heigl said. “We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first.”

A Los Angeles court has approved a request to add Jason Trawick as a co-conservator in charge of his fiancé, Britney Spears, according to TMZ. Trawick, along with Spears’ father, will be responsible for all decisions pertaining to the pop star’s personal life. Spears has been under the conservatorship since 2008. It was originally reported that her father had requested Trawick be added, but it turns out it was the singer herself. A lawyer for her father, Jamie Spears, says her client is “thrilled” with the addition. “It’s all in the family.” Spears also earned permission to go forward with the sale of her former Hollywood Hills home without waiting for court approval. The home, purchased for $2.99 million, was sold for $4.25 million.

Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has kept tight-lipped about his relationships, but he’s willing to offer some kind words about ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz. “I don’t like talking about my relationships,” Rodriguez tells with The Insider. “But I will tell you about CD: She’s probably one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever met, and just an amazing light.” Of course, Diaz isn’t the only A-lister Rodriguez can’t help gushing about: “I think my new hero is George Clooney,” he says. “He’s my new role model. I think he’s done it right.”

Justin Bieber better watch his back, since a certain 5-year-old “Toddlers and Tiaras” star has it in for him. In a promotional video for the cable TV series, young pageant contestant Bridgett says she wants to be an exterminator when she grows up, but her list of targets is troubling: “I like to kill the worms. I like to kill grasshoppers. I like to kill bees,” Bridgett explains. “I like to kill Justin Bieber.”
