News spread across Twitter last night that Brian Ormond and Pippa O'Connor have joined the baby train. Also keeping it local, 27-year-old Jonny Sexton's popped the question at his long term gerrelfriend, schoolteacher Laura Priestly.

Further afield, Guy Ritchie's asked the mother of two of his children (one of which is still womb bound), Jacqui Ainsley, to marry him. We think. Well, he made her display her ring in front of photographers by hoisting up her hand during a recent outing to LA's Madeo restaurant on Sunday.

As well as having 13-month-old Rafael with Jacqui, Guy also has sons Rocco, 12, and seven-year-old David with Madonna.

The 44-year-old filmmaker - who split from Madonna in 2008 after eight years of wedded bliss(ish) - has previously said he 'enjoyed' being married to the singer and has no regrets.

He said: "I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take. But you move on, don't you? You're right, I stepped into a soap opera, and I lived in it for quite a long period of my life. I'll probably be more eloquent on it 10 years from now."

In other "check ou' the ring on that" news; stylists are queuing up to call Jennifer Aniston's latest 8 carat engagement ring 'Gaudy'. Can't imagine why.
