May 3, 2005

The Tinseltown rumors keep on flying, but "Extra's" got the straight facts about your favorite stars.

First it was her possible engagement to boyfriend Ben Affleck that had Hollywood buzzing, but now the word is Jennifer Garner is expecting a bundle of joy. Photos of Jen shopping at a Los Angeles area children's store on Monday are what set tongues wagging, as they seem to show herÍ well, showing a little -- but are the pregnancy rumors true?

This one will have to stay a rumor -- we contacted Jen's reps but haven't heard back yet.

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise came exclusively to "Extra," gushing to our Jon Kelley about his romance with Katie Holmes, but the question remains: how did the two meet? Tom kept tight-lipped abou that when we talked to him last week, telling us, "You know, I think I'm going to hold onto that one."

Well, now we may know what brought the two together. Was it a chance meeting at a Hollywood hotspot? Or a romance that blossomed on a movie set?

No -- according to Us Weekly, Tom was so enamored with Katie that he actually called and asked her to fly from New York to Los Angeles just to meet him.

James Caan recently filed for divorce from his wife, but has the "Las Vegas" star had a change of heart?

Yes -- Caan is out of the country but "Extra" talked to his wife of nine years, Linda Stoke. She's talked to James and they've agreed to rescind their divorce papers, and they plan on moving back in together.

And from movie stars to country crooners, is Ren╚e Zellweger doing a little two-step with country music superstar Kenny Chesney?

Yes -- the Oscar winner reportedly kissed the country star on stage during a show in Florida last week.

Finally, reports have surfaced that Britney Spears is pregnant with a baby girl, but now is it true that she's actually expecting a boy?

It remains to be seen. However, the new issue of Us Weekly reports that it's true; Britney and Kevin are expecting a boy.
