Kevin Federline is now officially off the dating market – and he’s done the same with a California pad fit for his growing family.
The dancer-turned-rapper-turned-reality star is splashing out over $8K a month (no doubt with a bit of financial help from his superstar ex Britney Spears) on this pretty sweet spread, Celebuzz has learned.
Located a stone’s throw away from the Princess of Pop, Federline – who tied the knot Vegas-style with his longtime girlfriend/baby mama Victoria Prince, 30, over the weekend – actually keeps it classy with the Spanish Colonial that comes with nearly 6,000 square feet and plenty of room for his growing brood – Sean Preston, Jayden James, Kori Madison, Kaleb Michael, and almost 2-year-old daughter with Prince, Jordan Kay.
Originally on the market for nearly $2.5 million, the private abode can be found in Justin Bieber‘s swanky neck of the woods in Calabasas, Calif., with five bedrooms plus a family room, library, kid-friendly game room and theater. And the 15,000 square foot lot is so big it comes with multiples, like two staircases, three fireplaces, and three-car garage.
And on to the more important features for these newlyweds (who moved in April 2012) – the master suite comes with a sitting room and balcony, while outside you’ll find a custom pool, spa, waterfall and sport court.
Let’s just hope K-Fed, 35, treats this place better than the last mansion when he was sued for wrecking the pad and not paying rent.

Baby girl Luna does have quite a ring to it.
Spanish magazine Vanitatis is reporting that Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have named their daughter Luna Encinas Cruz. Luna of course means the moon, while Encinas is Bardem’s first surname. [via PEOPLE]
The baby’s name was registered in Madrid’s central registrar office on July 30, one week after Cruz gave birth to her second child. (For those keeping track of famous babies, little Luna was born on the same day as Prince George).
Cruz and Bardem’s growing family also includes Luna’s big brother Leonardo, who turned two this past January.

Prince William‘s paternity leave was up yesterday, two weeks after his son was born at St. Mary’s Lindo Wing in London, England.
Flight Lieutenant Wales, as he is known in the Royal Air Force, will complete his operational tour up at RAF Valley in Anglesey, Wales at the end of this month. The Duke has been stationed there in the Search and Rescue Force since January 2009, qualifying as a co-pilot and then a captain in June 2012.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have lived in a rented farmhouse near the base since before their April 2011 wedding, a cohabitational first for any future monarch and his/her future consort.
On July 28th, the Daily Express published an exclusive on William’s decision to leave the Royal Air Force and rejoin the Blues and Royals, a calvary regiment of the British Army.
The Duke would, according to senior sources, rank as captain in the Household Cavalry’s Mounted Regiment, taking part in ceremonial parades, conducting soldier inspections before they go on duty, and completing “career reports” on troops in his squadron for the unit commander, according to the Express. It’s a job that would not require deployment (although this point is moot for William, who will never see action on the front lines, as he is second-in-line to the throne).
“As speculation goes it’s probably a pretty safe bet,” royal expert Victoria Arbiter told me about the report. “Although I don’t think William will be nearly as happy as he has been flying helicopters.”
Fortunately for the Mrs. and Prince George, William’s office would be in Hyde Park barracks in Knightsbridge, not too far from the Cambridge’s new digs at Kensington Palace.
The palace has yet to confirm what William’s plans are – continue with his military career or take on more royal duties -but a British Army source told the Express that plans are in place for the Duke to take on this new role.
“Our understanding is that he will finish with the RAF, have some leave that is due and then return to the Blues and Royals and serve with the Mounted Regiment, where he will take an appointment as second in command of a squadron,” the source said. “It is not a difficult role but it requires a lot of attention to detail.”
With Prince Philip, 92, still recovering from abdominal surgery (he’s due to take on an engagement in Scotland next week, according to the BBC) and the Queen, 87, decreasing her number of annual duties (though not abdicating), the logical choice is for William to take on more responsibilities as a senior royal.
On Wednesday, August 14th, the Duke will visit the Anglesey Show by his base in Wales. Kensington Palace confirms that William will watch gundog and falconry displays, as well as meeting with Young Farmers and view some cattle judging.
No word yet on whether the Duchess and their son will join William.
It’s finally happening.
After weeks of speculation, Kim Kardashian has made her first TV appearance – albeit disappointingly via satellite video – since giving birth to her daughter, North West.
On Friday’s episode of Kris, the new mom surprised Kris Jenner with a heartfelt message.
“Hi, Mom! I just wanted to say hi,” Kardashian said. “I’m sorry I couldn’t be there … I’m loving life a little bit too much right now.”
“I watch you every single day,” she continued. “You are so amazing. You really are born to do this. I just wanted to say I love you, and have an amazing show.”
Needless to say, the little cameo made the famous mom-ager a little teary-eyed.

Vince Vaughn‘s wife Kyla Weber gave birth to the couple’s second child on Aug. 7, PEOPLE reports.
The baby boy, who weighed in at 8 lbs. 4 oz., has been named Vernon Lindsay Vaughn, after the 43-year-old actor’s father.
The funny man and Weber, who have been married since January 2010, are also proud parents to daughter Locklyn Kyla, 2.
“My wife’s Canadian, so I have the most polite child ever,” Vaughn said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in April, when he first announced Weber’s second pregnancy.
“Everything’s thank you, I’m like, wow, this is unbelievable. She’s an angel among angels.”
Vaughn’s next film The Delivery Man (coincidentally, a film about a sperm donor fathering many, many children), opens in theaters on Nov. 22.

Adorable family alert!
On Monday, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, her fiance Jionni LaValle and their son Lorenzo were spotted spending some quality family time on the beach in Seaside Heights, N.J. (otherwise known as the Jersey Shore).
Snooki, 25, showed off her amazing bikini body in a black-and-white striped top and high-waisted black bikini shorts while LaValle donned a tank and board shorts.
Lorenzo, who turns one next month, braved the Jersey Shore water in a cute blue and yellow outfit.
Since giving birth to her first child nearly one year ago, Snooki has worked hard on her fitness and getting her pre-pregnancy body back. In recent months, the Snooki & JWoww star has been sharing her workout tips through Workout Wednesday videos on her Celebuzz page.
In her latest post, the star writes, “This Workout Wednesday move is called the Romanian Dead Lift. It sounds scary, but it is an awesome workout for the thighs, calves, and the butt which is so important for the ladies during bikini season!” Watch the video here.

As promised, Kensington Palace confirmed today at that the Duchess of Cambridge is safely in her hospital room inside St. Mary’s Lindo Wing.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour,” the palace tweeted just before 3am ET.
“The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”
The palace confirmed that Her Royal Highness went into labor “naturally.” She is progressing well, they told members of the press.
Much to the press pack’s delight outside, Her Royal Highness is due to give birth to the future monarch imminently.
This is the first time social media has been used to make such an announcement regarding a royal birth. Royal reporter Dickie Arbiter, LVO, told me that when she was pregnant, Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Princess of Wales was in the Lindo Wing, and then again when the baby was born (the palace does not comment on if/when the expectant mother goes into labor)
Arbiter noted that in addition to a notice from Clarence House, the announcement from Kensington Palace will go to the Press Association and their email list.
Kate Middleton and Prince William may have announced the birth of their first child – a boy – on Monday, but the world has yet lay eyes on the royal tot.
“Baby Cambridge,” as the press have affectionately dubbed, was born at the Lindo Wing of London’s St. Mary’s Hospital at 4:24 PM local time – the same place Princess Diana gave birth to William just 31 years ago.
Weighing in at 8 lbs, 4 oz, the little bundle of joy will be staying at the hospital overnight with his mother as the two prepare for their post-birth debut this coming week, according to the Duke and Duchess’ official office. The baby is currently the third in line to the throne, after his father William and grandfather Prince Charles.
“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & families have been told and are delighted,” royal officials tweeted on July 22.
Seeing how we can’t see the royal baby just yet, there’s no harm in seeing maybe how he will look should he take William’s genes. Launch the gallery above to see the Prince of Wales’ life in pictures!
