Rove McManus and Tasma Walton

In September, Rove McManus and his wife, Tasma Walton, announced that they were expecting their first baby. And over the weekend, 40-year-old opened up to Sunday Life magazine, revealing that the pregnancy was “a really beautiful surprise” – and they chose to tell everyone just before a red carpet event at the Toronto Film Festival after discovering that “it’s very difficult to hide a little bump in an evening dress”.

She also discussed McManus’ late wife, Belinda Emmett, who died from cancer in 2006. Walton was actually the one who introduced Emmett to McManus in 1999. “It seemed to me it would be a really great match,” Walton told Sunday Life. “And I was right.”

When asked about the public’s response to her relationship with McManus, which started 11 months after Emmett’s death, she said: “What’s important is your family and friends and how they feel about it… Not one person in that circle thought there was anything wrong.”

Michelle Bridges with the Commando

11. Are the Commando and Michelle Bridges back together?

Over the weekend, it was announced that Michelle Bridges and Steve “Commando” Willis have rekindled their on-again off-again romance – just three months after they called it quits.

The pair, who became official in May, separated in August, when the Commando decided to move back in with his wife Froso and their two children. But now according to the Sunday Telegraph The Biggest Loser hosts are ‘giving it another crack’, with Willis leaving his wife again to get back together with Michelle, who split with her husband of 9 years earlier this year.

According to a friend the pair ”have a really strong connection – Steve tried to be with his family but he and Michelle are back together trying to make it work.”

Charlie Hunnam

12. Christian Grey has pulled out. But not in the way you think.

Charlie Hunnam, the actor cast to play Christian Grey in the upcoming adaptation of E.L James’ bestseller 50 Shades of Grey has pulled out of the lead role, leaving women everywhere feeling well, a little grey. The Sons of Anarchy star and Universal Pictures released a statement yesterday confirming that Hunnam would no longer play Christian Grey due to ‘timing issues’ because of his television commitments.

Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffiths (and stepdaughter of Antonio Banderas) will still play Anastasia Steele in the film set for release in August 2014, however a replacement for Hunnam has not yet been named.

Now for the question on everyone’s mind, who will play Christian? We can only speculate…
