Victoria and David Beckham are expecting their fourth child. Will they get a girl this time?

The soccer star and Spice Girl are parents to three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. Experts say -- not surprisingly -- that it's a 50-50 shot.

Congrats go out to the couple; they've weathered nasty infidelity rumors of late. In September, a Manhattan call girl said Becks had hired her services for $10,000 a night, a claim he vehemently denied.

In other babymaking news, Inception actress Marion Cotillard is pregnant. Dad is actor Guillaume Canet, whom the Oscar winner, 35, met on the 2003 French film Love Me if You Dare.

BIG KISS-OFF

Eva Longoria may not have a mind for business. Her Vegas club Beso isn't doing so hot. Word on the Strip is that the failing nightspot at the CityCenter resort complex owes almost $5.7 million and has filed for bankruptcy protection.

Longoria owns almost one-third of Beso; lawyers said she gave a cash loan of just over $1 million and paid $375,000 in legal fees for the venture.

The newly single actress said in a statement to The Associated Press that Chapter 11 is a good thing: ``I look forward to a more proactive, hands-on approach in the coming years with my Las Vegas businesses.''

TWISTS OF FATE

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords,

who was shot in Tucson Saturday, allegedly by 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner, has connections to Hollywood.

The injured congresswoman, 40, is a second cousin of Gwyneth Paltrow, Showbiz411.com reports. Paltrow's late father Bruce Paltrow was a cousin of Giffords' father, Spencer. The two have never met, but the Country Strong star released a statement saying her ``thoughts and prayers are with her and her family as well as the other victims of this horrible act.''

Incidentally, Sophia Bush also has a tie to the tragedy: The One Tree Hill star was a cousin of victim Christina Green, who was featured in a book about babies born on Sept. 11, 2001. Bush tweeted her condolences.

GETTING COZY

Does Cheryl Hines have a new lover?

Yes, judging by some recent pics snapped with environmental advocate Bobby Kennedy Jr. in Aspen.

Kennedy was in a race; Hines cheered from the sidelines. Then they went skiing together. Not sure what happened apres ski at the lodge.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star's rep told RumorFix.com that the two were just friends.

At least they're both single. Hines is in the middle of a divorce from producer Paul Young; Kennedy divorced his wife of 16 years, Mary Richardson, last year.

In other (non) couple news, Denise Richards and Nikki Sixx have called it quits. The New York Daily News reports that the spark died after a few dates.
