After the state of California overturned a ban on gay marriages, many expected a rash of same-sex marriages to be scheduled in the state. On the celeb side of things, it seems that Queen Latifah will be amongst the first big stars to marry her longterm partner.

According to this week’s edition of the National Enquirer, Queen Latifah plans to marry her partner of five years, personal trainer Jeannette Jenkins.

Queen Latifah has been very tight-lipped about her relationship with Jenkins, and told Ebony magazine in 2007 that she would not comment on the rumor that Jenkins was her girlfriend. She didn’t deny it, she was just annoyed that she was asked.

“No comment on that at all. I’m done commenting on all that … It’s ridiculous, I know me and that’s all I need to know.

“And if the readers don’t know me, then that’s one part they aren’t going to get to know. Those are my people but they don’t sleep with me,” she says in a very even tone that is very consistent with her relaxed mood. “It feels so invasive. It’s the one thing I don’t think people need to know about.”

And then even before that, in 2006, she told Essence magazine:

“If I’m not going to tell you what guy I’m dating, I sure wouldn’t tell you I’m dating a girl.”

Neither Queen Latifah nor her partner have ever officially come out. Queen Latifah has, however, given her special friend attention and treatment that suggests they’re more than just good friends. Last year she bought Jeannette a Range Rover, and had it delivered to a restaurant to surprise her.

According to the National Enquirer, the couple are “planning an intimate ceremony with close famiy and friends.” They are also reportedly interested in adopting an American baby.

Jessica Alba, who married her long-time boyfriend Cash Warren three weeks ago, has given birth to baby girl, according to US Weekly magazine.

Alba, 27, best-known for her roles in the TV drama “Dark Angel” and the movie “Fantastic Four,” announced last December that she was pregnant and engaged to Warren.

Alba met Warren, 29, on the set of “Fantastic Four” in 2004 where he was a director’s assistant. Warren has since moved into producing.

US Weekly said Alba gave birth to her daughter at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The couple married in a quiet ceremony at the Beverly Hills courthouse on May 19.

Prince: The Artist Formerly Known as 49

Prince, who’s noted for over-the-top parties and celeb-infested jam sessions, celebrated his 50th birthday with a whisper this weekend.

Starting on Friday evening, he hit his sometimes haunt Teddy’s, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, with pals for drinks.

The artist must have been feeling uninhibited, as no security team was on hand to sweep him into a waiting car. Prince exited the hotel and strolled down Hollywood Boulevard among the regular folk.

On Saturday, his actual birthday, he stepped out with two young brunettes (pretty modest for the milestone day) for the Lo Hi Fi party at Hollywood spot Green Door.

Prince and his ladies kept to themselves, while just a table away Robert Downey Jr. held court with 10 pals, including comic Richard Lewis.

Here’s hoping the Purple One doesn’t make all this moderate fun a habit.
