Love, etc.: Britney Spears engaged, Kobe Bryant divorcing, Huma Abedin gets (baby) showered

•Showered: Huma Abedin, who was guest of honor at a power baby shower Saturday. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz were among the guests at the home of Rima Al-Sabah, wife of the Kuwaiti ambassador. Abedin and former congressman Anthony Weiner are expecting the baby — their first, a boy — on New Year’s Eve.

•Engaged: Britney Spears, 30, and former manager Jason Trawick, 40, Access Hollywood reports. The much-hyped proposal finally happened Thursday night at Trawick’s 40th birthday party: “OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for,” Spears wrote Friday on Facebook. “SO SO SO excited!!!!”

•Split: Kobe Bryant and his wife of 10 years, Vanessa, who filed for divorce Friday in Orange County Superior Court citing “irreconcilable differences.” Details of the settlement were not disclosed, but it’s sure to be expensive for the NBA star: Vanessa’s mother told the L.A. Times the couple had no prenup.
