Sara Cox Is Expecting Baby Number Three, Joe Cole Is Going To Be A Dad And Elton Is Told He Can't Adopt

The Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox has announced she is pregnant for the third time.

She broke the news on Twitter, writing: "How terribly modern of me to say this on twitter! Wanna share with you just before I do it live on air: I'm pregnant & over the moon xxx."

Sara, who is 34, then told her Radio 1 listeners that she and her partner Ben Cyzer, 32, were "beside themselves with happiness".

The baby, who is due next spring, will be a sibling for four-year-old Lola and Isaac, one.

Sara has previously said motherhood changed her life. She had been labelled as a "ladette" but said: "All my priorities have changed. I appreciate calmness and feeling secure."

Which could be translated as: "I don't have the time or energy to go out drinking any more." It happens to us all...

Meanwhile England football star Joe Cole and his wife Carly Zucker are also expecting a baby, it has been announced.

Joe told Hello! magazine: "We are really happy and looking forward to the birth of our first child."

Carly, a fitness instructor, had previously said she would like to get pregnant on her honeymoon. Looks like it worked - the baby is due in six months.

There's bad news for Elton John though. It sounds like he might not be able to adopt Lev, the 14-month-old Ukrainian baby he had his heart set on.

Ukrainian officials say he is too old and not married. Apparently it's illegal for homosexual couples to adopt in the Ukraine.

The 62-year-old musician and his husband David Furnish will have to appeal to the Ukrainian president for special dispensation if they want to adopt Lev from his orphanage.

The whole saga seems remarkably unfair on the child.

If the adoption doesn't go ahead, how bitter and twisted is Lev going to be when he grows up - if he grows up - and realises what kind of life he could have had?
