DOUBLE WHAMMY: If you think Tony Ward is trouble, wait ’til you meet his (future, unborn) son. The model-actor-artist — and former boyfriend of Madonna — is expecting a baby with his partner Angela Bruce in June. “It’s very exciting: He’s a Gemini, he’s a rabbit in the Chinese calendar like myself and he’s going to be born maybe, possibly, on my birthday, as well, so triple threat. If he turns out anything like me, watch out, we’re in trouble,” Ward joked at the Kris Van Assche men’s wear show Friday.


Before that, Ward hopes to give birth to an independent feature he is producing, under the working title “Junkie,” directed by Adam Mason and starring Ward’s painting partner Daniel Louis Rivas. “I was going to play a part in it, but I fired myself from it. I had too much stuff on my plate,” he said.


Singer Ayo is so crazy about six-month-old daughter Billie-Eve that she has named her new album after the baby, but she will nonetheless embark on an international tour starting in France in March. French actress Vahina Giocante, meanwhile, said she scoured Israel with a camera to research her role as a photojournalist in her upcoming release “The Unforgettables,” directed by Matan Guggenheim.
