The third time is the charm. Thandie Newton is pregnant with her third child. The 40-year-old actress stepped out at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8 to promote her new film, Half of a Yellow Sun, with no indication of even the slightest baby bump. At the premiere, she wore a tight-fitted black and white dress with her hair pulled back. The gorgeous performer and her writer/director husband Ol Parker of 15 years already have two daughters, Kipley, 12 and Niro, 8.

Russell turned heads again wearing a shirt by Hyro, overalls by Topman, shoes by Balenciaga, a Versace chain, and Moscot Originals glasses.

Word is Lamar Odom was spotted on September 9 in downtown Los Angeles in the lobby of the apartment building where he’s now living - and he was posing for photos with several fans.
