WESTFIELD, N.J. - Whitney Houston's grave in New Jersey has been marked with a teardrop-shaped headstone - with an inscription well known to her fans: "I will always love you."

The 48-year-old pop music queen died Feb. 11, 2012, in Beverly Hills, Calif. An autopsy found she had drowned accidentally, with heart disease and cocaine use contributing to her death.

She was buried next to her father in Westfield, N.J., about 20 miles west of New York.

NEW YORK - "Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon can expect some late nights at home as a proud new papa.

A representative says Fallon and his wife, Nancy Juvonen Fallon, welcomed a baby daughter Tuesday morning.

The publicist says the first-time parents are "overjoyed."

He and his film-producer wife were wed in 2007.

The 38-year-old Fallon takes over NBC's "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno next year after hosting "Late Night" since 2009.

Actress to direct

first feature film

JERUSALEM - Israeli film officials say Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman will direct her first feature film, based on an autobiographical novel by celebrated Israeli writer Amos Oz.

Yoram Honig of the Jerusalem Film Fund and a publicist for the film said Wednesday that Portman wrote the screenplay and will also star in the movie as Oz's troubled mother.

They say Portman is to arrive in Israel in October to cast local actors. The movie will be filmed in Jerusalem in early 2014.

It's not decided if the film will be shot in Hebrew or English. Honig's fund is providing $400,000.

The movie is based on Oz's 2002 autobiography, "A Tale of Love and Darkness," about his youth during Israel's founding years.

The publicist spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the project.
