Hilary Duff can’t wait for her first Christmas with son Luca.

 

The ‘Lizzie Maguire’ star and husband Mike Comrie welcomed their first child nine months ago and the couple are excited to spend the festive season with him and their extended family in Newport Beach, California. Hilary told Access Hollywood: “It’s nine kids going crazy, basically wrapping paper flying in the air, toys everywhere and mayhem,” she says. “We’re really looking forward to that - we get to bring a baby this year! - so it’s really exciting.”

 

Hilary, 25, also revealed she and Mike have had to make some adjustments to their home since having a baby, specifically the Christmas tree. She explained: “He’s into everything. I’m running around the house just trying to keep up with him. He’s so fast! “He loves the Christmas tree. Obviously we have a funny looking Christmas tree [because] all the ornaments are at the top.”

 

While Hilary and Mike are enjoying parenthood for the first time, they are hoping to expand their family once Luca is a little older. She previously said: “Mike and I are literally obsessed with Luca. We’re like, ‘He’s perfect. We should just be one and done.’ But I think once your baby starts getting older you miss that phase and you go in for round two. Maybe when [Luca's] two or three?”

Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan have a “deep bond”.

 

The ‘Anger Management’ actor recently gave the troubled starlet $100,000 to help pay off her hefty $233,904 tax bill and while Lindsay didn’t thank him until Charlie publicly complained, Lindsay’s mother Dina insists the pair are close. She told Perezhilton.com: "Lindsay continues to feel an immeasurable respect and love for her dear friend Charlie Sheen. They have a deep bond and she has expressed privately her sincerest gratitude to Charlie for his immense generosity on her behalf. She and I are deeply appreciative for his kindest of gestures. Charlie you are a true gentleman."

 

Lindsay, 26, sent Charlie a bunch of flowers and a hand-written letter in which she explained to him that she didn't mean to be rude but couldn't contact him because she lost his number when her phone broke recently. The former 'Two And A Half Men' star generously helped out his 'Scary Movie 5' co-star when he heard she was having financial difficulties after not being paid for one of her projects but Charlie admitted he was unimpressed that she accepted money from him but didn't acknowledge it. He said: "She got shorted and I found out, so I said: 'Here'. I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you'. Anything you know?"

Brooke Mueller has left rehab.

 

The former wife of Charlie Sheen – who was undergoing her 19th attempt at beating drug addiction – checked out of the treatment facility after just six days on Sunday (16.12.12).

 

According to gossip website TMZ, Brooke, 35, is undergoing "ongoing psychological outpatient treatment" and is "feeling much better,” after a suspected overdose on prescription medication Adderall before being admitted to rehab.

 

Brooke’s three-year-old twins with Charlie, Bob and Max had been staying with Charlie's second wife Denise Richards because Brooke had fired her nanny, but are now being looked after by the troubled star's family.

 

In June, Charlie, 47, urged Brooke to check herself into rehab after he became concerned about her when she reportedly appeared "out of it" during a visit to his home.

 

A source close to Brooke said at the time, she "partied for four days straight ... and ultimately fell off the wagon". The insider added: "Brooke's family is hoping that she finally understands the consequences of her actions. That is, she risks losing all of her rights to the children if she doesn't get clean - once and for all."
