Kate Middleton sports a definite bump, Matthew McConaughey's wedding pics surface, romances of 'The GC' stars are revealed, and John Key makes an embarrassing admission in this week's mags.
New Idea follows Woman’s Day’s Wills and Kate baby buzz lead from last week, but this time round their argument is a little more convincing I must say, featuring a pic of the oh so svelte Ms Middleton sporting what appears to be the beginnings of a baby bump.
While it’s difficult to conclude whether the Duchess of Cambridge does have a bun in the oven or if her suspiciously rounded stomach is down to overindulging during the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, NI points to already reported changes in Kate’s appearance as evidence she’s expecting. "Her face is more rounded – and so is her bottom," says one source.
Look out, Kate, Weight Watchers is probably sizing you up as their next ambassador.
While on an errand run in the swanky London suburb of Chelsea it was also noted that the makeup free royal had the odd spot – a tell-tale sign, says NI, of the fluctuating hormones of early pregnancy.
Or, in most people’s case, the result of a junk food binge or boozy bender.
The magazine is clutching at straws trying to point out Kate’s barely there regrowth as another pregnancy indicator – give the girl a break, just because she hasn’t had her roots done in the past few weeks, doesn’t mean she’s knocked up!
Using photos of Kate and Wills as kids, the article also features a digitally created image of what a baby boy aka the future king might look like – let’s hope the real thing isn’t quite as creepy and wax-like.The mag fuels speculation Tom and Katie’s marriage is on the rocks, reporting that Katie was no-show during one of the biggest week’s of Tom’s career, his wife instead opting to promote an "obscure ice-skating event in Taiwan and China".
Don’t feel bad Katie, we think a random skating show or watching paint dry are both valid excuses for not wanting to hang out with a controlling, scientology-preaching husband, too.
Elsewhere, Woman’s Day runs exclusive pics of Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves’ Texan nuptials. The couple hosted a three-day bohemian bash at their estate in Austin, complete with a round-the-clock hospitality tent laden with food, tequila, beer, pork sausages and cheese bread - sounds like the ultimate first year uni party!
A fist-pumping Matthew admits the enormity of the occasion only hit him as he stood at the altar waiting for Camila."The silence before she came out, 42 years of history ran through my veins…and then I thought of her".
Hmm isn’t that a bit of a weird time to be thinking about all the women you’ve been with over the years, Matthew?
The couple’s cute kids Levi and Vida were ring bearer and flowergirl in the ceremony, while the Brazilian model shows of her enviable pins taking to the D-floor in a gorgeous white mini dress later in the night.
Speaking of adorable kids, the Day runs too-cute snaps of Harper Beckham donning a pair of Minnie Mouse ears during a recent family outing to Disneyland while in LA. Posh and Becks share a sneaky cuddle, with the mum-of-four trying her darndest to hold back what appears to be a rare smile.
The mag includes pics of Victoria from just days earlier, with a noticeable trout pout – perhaps, they suggest, a side effect of the NZ sheep placenta facials she’s reportedly been using. Ewww!The Day also feature Wills and Kate, revealing that Kate is going all out for her hubby, who turns 30 this week.
"Kate really wants to make Wills’ birthday one to remember and she’s pulling out all the stops," reveals a royal insider, who says Kate’s enlisted the help of Prince Charles to organize a very special gift.
Bad move Kate. It’s hard to gauge what Wills’ reaction will be to the portrait she’s reportedly commissioned of herself, or the solid rose gold pen, intended as "a gorgeous keepsake".
Luckily Harry’s come to the party in the prezzie stakes, reportedly organizing a skydive for is brother during an upcoming trip he’s planning for him, on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy , Wills, and Kate in South Africa.
"It’s all part of Harry’s big plan to get Wills to toughen up with outdoor activities," explains a source. "He finds the whole idea hilarious".
No doubt throwing him out of a plane will do the trick, Harry.
Both NI and the Day feature 'The GC' love matches, with NI revealing that Nate has been snapped up, sorry ladies.The reality show favourite met Kiwi girl Brookie James at a Brisbane nightclub eight months ago and the pair has been inseparable ever since.
The mag writes that Nate spends at least a couple of hours a night on Facebook while Brookie "just watches TV".
Sounds like a rock-solid thing you’ve got going there, guys.
Meanwhile, the Day exclusively reveals the secret romance between co-stars Jade Louise and Tame.
"We actually started seeing each other the first night of filming," Jade Louise says. "We literally met, had a conversation, and the next morning woke up beside each other."
Err, is that something you’re regretting mentioning now, Jade?
The NZ Woman’s Weekly presents a special collector’s edition this week, celebrating the mag’s 80th birthday and featuring a bevy of Kiwi women who inspire us.
Probably not his finest work, PM John key admits to "fond memories of being sent down to our local dairy to collect the weekly for my mother," and in more recent years for his wife, Bronagh.
At least he admits to having a flick through, and flies the flag for the domestically-inclined middle aged male again further down the mag, by appearing in a photo doing the ironing.
WW includes a pullout of the mag’s very first issue from 1932, which features time and labour saving hints for "keeping ahead of the clock" including how to clean a mincing machine, the milk saucepan and storing blankets and woollies.
Boy, life must have been a blast back in those days.
The quote of the week comes from a rainbow lycra-suited Cheryl Cole, who has her sights set on the cobbled streets of Weatherfield.
"If I could do a cameo in any show it would be Coronation Street," she says. "I’d like to do more acting."
Blimey Chez, that’ll be the day…And that’s all from the gossip mags this week!
