They may have vowed to put off tying the knot until same-sex marriage is legal again in California, but engaged couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are reportedly not waiting to start a family. Sources tell People magazine that Bell is pregnant with their first child, due in the spring. “They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” the source says. “Kristen had a little bit of morning sickness early on, but she just started shooting the second season of ‘House of Lies’ and is feeling great now.”

David Beckham may be looking to add talk show host to his list of job titles, as two different TV companies have reportedly offered him his own show, according to the Daily Star. “We want David on board whether or not he continues to play for the [L.A.] Galaxy,” a source close to, one of the companies, Time Warner Cable, says. “We are on our way to becoming the world’s biggest sportscaster, and he is a key part of our future.” Time Warner has reportedly offered him a “multimillion-dollar” contract, prompting the Fox Sports network to make an offer of their own.

Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she recently underwent a double mastectomy because of a genetic predisposition to develop breast cancer, she tells Hello! Magazine. “I’ve had cancer before, and I didn’t want to live under that cloud. The odds are not in my favor,” she explains. “I didn’t even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way. I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time.” Osbourne admits her son, Jack, becoming a father this year had a lot to do with the decision. “I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl,” she says.

Brad Pitt isn’t just an actor, producer, philanthropist and Chanel spokesman. It turns out he’s also a furniture designer. “I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” Pitt tells Architectural Digest. And now the actor has teamed with furniture designer Frank Pollaro for a collection that includes a 17-foot-long wood dining table, a side table with 24-karat gold finish and a marble bathtub for two. The pieces debut at an exhibition in New York next week, but don’t expect anything affordable, as the line will be “typically at the highest end of the custom-furnishing scale,” Pollaro says. “These will be up there, even north of that.”

Amanda Bynes is standing firm with her assertion that In Touch magazine’s story about her parading naked around a New York tanning salon is bogus. “I’m suing In Touch for printing a fake story. I’m not ‘troubled,’ I don’t get naked in public. I’m 26, a multimillionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy,” Bynes tells Us Weekly. And it appears the tanning salon is backing up her claim. “Employee testimony and security footage have confirmed that Ms. Bynes was not acting inappropriately,” Beach Bum Tanning CEO James Oliver says in a statement. “She is a long-time client and we stand by her account.”
