Congrats are in order for Salma Hayek; the actress announced she’s expecting her first child, and engaged to her baby-daddy, some dude named François-Henri Pinault. The news came shortly after photographers caught a rather round Hayek shopping in Los Angeles.
“Businessman, François-Henri Pinault, and his fiancée, Salma Hayek, are happy to announce they are expecting the arrival of their first child,” Hayek’s rep confirmed in a statement Friday.
The pair have kept a relatively low profile since their relationship began – though Hayek, 40, has joined Pinault for occasional public events, including one in October at the festivities surrounding the inauguration of the Pinault Foundation’s Modern Art collection in Venice’s Gritti Palace.
Pinault is the CEO of luxury goods firm PPR, which owns Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, as well as a French department store and national music chain. His father, François, is an avid art collector owning more than 2,500 valuable pieces, including Picassos, Miros and work by contemporary artistst including Damien Hirst.
So in other words, he may not be much to look at, but homeboy has some serious bank.

Boozy Amy Winehouse called off a performance in London this week, claiming she was too ill to perform. Unfortunately for Amy, photographers caught her a few hours before the announcement buying wine. God, drunkie.
The Rehab singer was snapped in her local North London supermarket at 11am studying the booze selection.
Shortly afterwards she cancelled her gig at Shepherds Bush Empire.
The venue said the show had been postponed due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
Amy’s PR told me: “Her management said she was ill.”
I can’t hate too hard on Amy; she’s one of my favorite performers right now. Check out aptly-titled song, “Rehab.”

Good new from Johnny Depp’s family; daughter Lily Rose showed signs of improvement from the illness which has hospitalized her for over a week. Although Depp refused to confirm what kind of illness the seven year old was suffering from, TMZ claimed Depp rushed Lily Rose to a London hospital after she got stuck with a rusty tack. Ouch.
According to In Touch, “the wound was left untreated” and “blood poisoning developed. It has now spread through her body and has affected her vital organs.”
While there have been several conflicting reports on the severity of Lily-Rose’s condition, Depp’s reps tell the AP that she is “doing much better.” The actor has reportedly not left Lily-Rose’s bedside since she was admitted to the hospital on February 28.
Best of luck to Depp and his gorgeous family. Such a terrible situation for a little girl.

A fifty-something rock star in rehab? No way! Totally shocked? Me neither: Eddie Van Halen admitted himself into a rehab clinic. The Van Halen guitarist made the announcement via his website. Who even knew Eddie Van Halen had a website?
“I have always and will always feel a responsibility to give you my best. At the moment I do not feel that I can give you my best. That’s why I have decided to enter a rehabilitation facility to work on myself, so that in the future I can deliver the 110 percent that I feel I owe you and want to give you.”
Van Halen announced last month that their long-awaited reunion tour with singer David Lee Roth was called off. I guess we now have a pretty good indication as to why.
