Colombian soccer sensation Radamel Falcao, fresh off signing a deal with AS Monaco estimated at almost $80 million, was spotted Tuesday baby-shopping with his pregnant wife, Argentine singer Lorelei Taron, at Genius Jones in Wynwood. Judging from his shopping spree, El Tigre plans to be a hands-on daddy. He tried on and purchased a wearable baby carrier by Stokke in dark navy color. Meanwhile, Taron picked out a folding baby bath tub in pink by Boon and a set of Hello Kitty swaddle blankets by Aden & Anais. The glamour couple, who arrived in a Bentley convertible coupe, stopped to pose for photos and sign autographs for a group of local players who interrupted their game at Soccer Town, next door to Genius Jones on Northeast Second Avenue, when they spotted the superstar.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
