Another Zeta-Jones production?

Another baby for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones?

Douglas said he'd like to have a second child with the actress, whom he married in November. The two already have a son together, Dylan Michael Douglas, who was born in August.

The 56-year-old actor talked with Jane Pauley on "Dateline NBC," which airs 8 p.m. CST today, about his new film "Traffic," in which his wife also co-stars. When Pauley asked whether he and Zeta-Jones, 31, plan to have more children, Douglas said, "We'll see. We're talking about more kids. ... It could be next year. It better be sooner than later. That's all I can say."

Living life without Regis

Kathie Lee Gifford said she doesn't miss the morning television show she co-hosted with Regis Philbin.

Gifford bantered with Philbin on "Live With Regis & Kathie Lee" for 15 years before leaving last July. She told reporters Wednesday she assumed she'd be homesick for the talk show, but so far she hadn't been.

"I've been so busy doing what I love doing and having so much fun," she said. "A lot of people don't realize that I was an actress and singer long before I sat next to Regis, and I never really dreamed I would be there that long."

Gifford said she and Philbin had dinner recently and remain friends.

Brad's excellent adventure

"We've made a pact," says Brad Pitt of his marriage to "Friends" star Jennifer Aniston. "Jen and I call it the Adventure. We'll see where it takes us," the 37-year-old actor says in the January-February issue of Details magazine. Aniston and Pitt were married last July in an outdoor ceremony in Malibu, Calif.

Pitt called his wedding "one of the coolest things I've ever been to," adding that he wants to wait a bit longer before becoming a father. "I'm still a little selfish."

It was the first marriage for both Aniston and Pitt. Pitt's new film, "Snatch," opens in theaters today.

Alec's temper tiffs Kim

Alec Baldwin's inability to control his temper was a key factor in wife Kim Basinger's decision to file for divorce after seven years of marriage. "I've known for a year and a half that she was thinking about this," Basinger's father, Don, tells People magazine, out today.

The actress' father says Baldwin was verbally abusive to his daughter publicly and privately, but "when it started happening in front of Ireland (the couple's 5-year-old daughter), Kim finally said, 'Well, I'm not going to put up with that."'

Don Basinger says his daughter warned Baldwin about his behavior and even urged him to seek counseling. It failed, Basinger says, because "Alec goes one time, two times, then quits."
