If the showbiz world was surprised by Mel Gibson's recent split from Oksana Grigorieva – the mother of his five-and-a-half-month-old daughter Lucia – it was nothing compared to the shock experienced by the Russian model herself.

Speaking candidly about their three-year Hollywood romance, mum-of-two Oksana, now facing single parenthood for the second time in her life, says the breakup was amicable and mutual.

Another new mum opening up to us in this week's magazine, on sale now, is Denise Van Outen, who exclusively reveals all about baby Betsy's birth, and how husband Lee Mead has been her "rock".
