george & amal married again… & baby no. 3!

George and Amal Clooney would be the first to admit their marriage has had its ups and downs. But friends are breathing a sigh of relief that the couple have made it past the dreaded seven-year itch – and are more in love than ever! Last week, the couple was spotted appearing to be renewing their vows in Italy. Onlookers tell New Idea that 43-year-old Amal, who was dressed in a slinky white frock, could also be expecting their third child. “George and Amal had gathered their nearest and dearest, including Amal’s sister, for a posh dinner,” says a witness. “Word on the street is that it was a vow renewal, but it also looked like they had something extra to announce.

Jessica Mauboy, is that you?! The Aussie singer tried going incognito, as she stepped out in Sydney last week wrapped up in a series of bulky coats and cosy hats. Jess, who’s set to be a coach on the new season of The Voice, is currently in lockdown with her fiancé, Themeli Magripilis, and their puppy. Sources say the 31-year-old is chomping at the bit to get married and start a family.
