If only because it is the natural progression of life events in Hollywood, Jessica Alba - who a little more than two weeks ago came forth with the news that she is expecting her first child in "late spring/early summer" - is now officially betrothed to her longtime beau and the pop of her papoose, Cash Warren. "I can confirm that they are engaged," the former Dark Angel's publicist, Brad Cafarelli, confirms for TVGuide.com.

Oh, and you saw it confirmed here first. But why quibble? I'm bigger than that (especially since Christmas dinner!).
