CLAIM: Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones Planning a New Baby

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Star magazine takes another shameless turn this week with a cover story announcing that as a “final gift” to wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglas is taking measures to give her a “new baby.”

According to the tab, Zeta-Jones has long wanted another child, but the older Douglas was reluctant to expand the family.

But his recent treatment for throat cancer, however, has allegedly changed his mind, says Star, and a so-called “insider” claims that the actor recently “broke down and told her that he wanted her to be able to have another baby with him more than anything.”

The couple has two children together — son Dylan and daughter Carys. Star alleges that Zeta-Jones’ “baby dream” for a third could come true.

“Family sources believe he decided to have his sperm frozen before starting treatment,” continues the magazine’s “insider.”

A baby “would give both of them a new lease on life,” Star says of the couple.

Instead of wildly speculating about the private lives of a family already under duress, maybe the tabloid should get its facts straight.

“It’s not true,” a rep for Douglas tells Gossip Cop about the baby story.
