Monday gossip roundup: Amy Winehouse wanted to get pregnant

Amy Winehouse performs on stage at Arena Anhembi, during the Summer Soul Festival, on January 15, 2010 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Amy Winehouse was reportedly desperate to have a child with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil — even after the pair split up — Blake’s mother, Georgette Fielder-Civil, tells the Sun. Georgette says that before her son went away for his latest prison term, he showed her letters from Winehouse post-divorce that clearly indicate their romance was far from over. “In one letter, Amy wrote that Blake was definitely getting her pregnant within two months. She talked about conceiving the baby — which they would call Lucky — on Valentine’s Day,” Georgette says. “Even after their divorce Amy told Blake she’d love him forever. They carried on talking to each other until a few months before she died.”

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart turned heads at the star-studded wedding of Hollywood producer Kevin Turen and Evelina Oboza in New Jersey over the weekend, according to Us Weekly, partying with guests until 7 a.m. and engaging in some fairly public displays of affection. “Rob and Kristen were all over each other,” a source says. Pattinson also got a chance to let loose with Andrew Garfield and Zac Efron during the reception: “There was a little area where you could go and play music,” the source explains. “Rob sang, Andrew played the bongos, Zac played the guitar. It was a whole spectacle.”

While her baby bump has grown, Reese Witherspoon has stayed relatively mum on her pregnancy — her first with new husband Jim Toth. But she finally acknowledged the obvious while at an event in Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun Times. “Frankly, I’m feeling very round tonight,” she told the crowd. When a reporter suggested she avoid the city’s famously hearty food, she added, “Maybe, but it’s not easy. I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight.” As for her immediate plans, Witherspoon is she’s currently shooting “Devil’s Knot” with Colin Firth in Atlanta. “After that, I’m going to take a little time off — and go have a baby,” Witherspoon said.

Things seem to be going well on the romance front for Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. Williams “hasn’t been this happy in forever,” a source tells People magazine of the couple, who made a brief appearance at the after-party for the premiere of her new film, “Take This Waltz,” in New York late last week. Segel, for his part, is just as happy. “Jason is totally smitten,” the source says. “It’s like the first girl he’s ever been this way with.”

Joshua Jackson‘s hardline stance against marrying his girlfriend of five years, Diane Kruger, may be softening, according to Us Weekly. “Marriage is important for the people it’s important for, but neither one of us is particularly religious, so I don’t think there’s any particular push,” he says. “But never say never! I don’t know.” That’s a change from the firm “no” he and Kruger have expressed in the past. Last year, Kruger flatly told Glamous magazine, “Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart.”

Longtime “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek suffered a mild heart attack over the weekend, but is expected to recover, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Trebek, who has hosted the game show for 28 years, “is in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing,” a rep says. “He is expected to fully recover and be back at ‘Jeopardy’ when production begins taping in July for the new season.”
