The prettiest pregnant starlet in Hollywood-land this week is Kate Winslet.

The Oscar-winning actress was all smiles walking through London's Heathrow Airport with husband, Ned Rocknroll (note: his real name) on Thursday. She had one hand in his and the other on her baby bump, as magazines like Us Weekly have come to call it.

Somehow, the paparazzi who caught the couple walking through an empty corridor managed to make sure the lighting was just right for the shot. Oh, the magic of photography.

U.S. Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler has made plans to travel to Washington, D.C. to vote on President Obama's request for authorization of military force in Syria, according to her website.

The Washington state congresswoman has been caring for her newborn daughter, who was born prematurely in July. The infant was born at just 28 weeks and survived a usually fatal medical condition called Potter's syndrome, where a lack of amniotic fluid impairs lung and kidney development, according to The Oregonian.

Beutler's daughter, named Abigail, is currently being cared for at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif., and "her doctors are happy with her progress and optimistic about her future," her website said.

Beutler said while it is not possible for her to resume a full congressional schedule until after her daughter is brought home, she plans to "travel back and forth from the hospital to Washington, D.C. to participate in critical votes."

Will they, won't they rumors seem to continuously surround Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus' engagement. But after Miley's twerk-tastic performance at the VMAs, could the couple really be on the outs?

While Us Weekly contends the 23-year-old "Hunger Games" actor was mortified by his fiancée's foam finger escapades with Robin Thicke, it remains to be seen what's really going on with the couple.

Perhaps when Miley's latest album, entitled "Bangerz" drops Oct. 8, more news will leak out about the couple's cohabitation status, as well as whether or not they plan to really walk down the aisle.

Until then, here's Miley twerking in a Unicorn suit.
