(Newser) – Amid widespread reports that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are on the rocks, Star says news of baby No. 7's pending arrival has stopped the bickering. A "thrilled" Jolie is 10 weeks along, and even though "they'd been trying for months," the news was still "a total shock," a "family insider" tells the tab. "It happened just in time, because things were getting pretty ugly between them."

Meanwhile, Jolie-Pitt watchers at OK! say Pitt has a favorite new role: Mr. Mom. With Jolie in New York shooting the spy flick Salt, Pitt has taken over the household. He even drives the kids to school, causing quite a stir among the other parents. “The moms have started dressing up,” one local says. “They usually wear sweatpants, but now they’re all decked out.”
