After seven years of marriage, Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso plan to renew their vows, according to Page 6 of the New York Post.
The happy couple has yet to reveal the destination of their big bash, even to the guests, but the vow renewal is reportedly scheduled for an April date. Although the pair have four daughters together, the Page Six source says that soiree will be a "no kids" affair.
Damon and Barroso were originally wed at a private, small ceremony at city hall in Manhattan.
Think Damon's hometown buddy and Good Will Hunting cohort Ben Affleck will get an invite? Where do you think the ceremony will be held? Let us know in the comments.

It looks like the Material Girl needs to wear more material on Instagram.
At least, that's what the popular photo sharing site is saying in a warning letter to the superstar. Madonna, 54, joined Instagram four months ago.
You can read the letter here.
The site took issue with photos Madonna posted of her cleavage and derriere. In the letter, it says she has "violated community guidelines," one of which includes, "Don't share photos that show nudity or mature content."
And if she doesn't take them down? The site is threatening to boot her without warning. As of this writing, the photos are still up. Check out her Instagram photos here.
Do you think the photos are too racy for Instagram? Should Instagram boot her?

Boston native Ben Affleck may be the talk of the town this morning for his best picture win for "Argo," but it's his beard that won't stop talking.
That's because Ben Affleck's beard has a Twitter account. Yes, that's what we said -- his beard is tweeting. And the E! News folks couldn't resist gossiping about it on the Red Carpet last night.
Today, as Affleck basks in his glorious win, his beard is feeling nostalgic too. Check out some of its tweets:
Sandra Bullock tried to pinch me last night. I was having none of that. twitter.com/Afflecks_beard…— Ben Affleck's Beard (@Afflecks_beard) February 25, 2013
Bed time. It's been a long and rewarding day. Going to sleep with Oscar under my pillow. I'm scared he'll get rid of me #keepthebeard— Ben Affleck's Beard (@Afflecks_beard) February 25, 2013
Notice the timestamp? We're not sure where the creator @Afflecks_beard is tweeting from, but we assume it's somewhere across the pond.
In other Academy Award hair news...comedian Sarah Silverman couldn't resist taking a jab at Kristen Stewart's mane via Twitter:
Stewart arrived on the Red Carpet with her long brown hair falling loosely around her bare shoulders.

While we're talking hair, is actress Helena Bonham Carter against brushes too?
Carter opted for a less than sleek updo with pieces of hair hanging down in her face.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, may be basking in the glory of her newly-unveiled baby bump, but author Hilary Mantel's scathing attack on the young royal is making headlines as well. During a talk for London Review of Books' Winter Lectures, the 60-year-old Man Booker Prize winner slammed the former Middleton as "painfully thin ... a shop-window mannequin, with no personality of her own, entirely defined by what she wore ... her only point and purpose being to give birth."
The speech, which was first heard during the British Museum earlier this month, was met with a front page Daily Mail piece on Tuesday that fired back, calling it "an astonishing and venomous attack on the Duchess of Cambridge." The piece in print ran with the headline: "A plastic princess designed to breed."
British Prime Minister David Cameron called Mantel's comments "completely misguided and completely wrong," but the Royal office has declined to comment, according to The Washington Post.

It's that time of year when love is in the air ... or at least all over Facebook and Twitter. Celebrities are wishing their special someones and fans well on this Feb. 14.
Boston's resident supermodel Gisele Bundchen, wife of Patriots QB Tom Brady, posted an inspiring photo similar to this one of the handsome couple at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala in 2011, urging her Facebook and Twitter followers to "spread love." (Photo credit: Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images)
Happy Valentine's day to all! Let's spread love. ow.ly/hInxr— Gisele Bündchen (@giseleofficial) February 14, 2013
@avalanna i miss her. happy valentines day— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) February 14, 2013
He also shared the love he got in the form of one classy-looking Valentine's Day card, it seems from fans, though the Biebs doesn't specify.
Comedian and actor Kevin Hart is wishing his daughter a special Valentine's Day message this year:
Happy Valentines Day to the most Beautiful girl in the whole world!!! You have no idea I thankful I am… instagr.am/p/Vt-Yq8iYlw/— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) February 14, 2013
And "Girls" star Lena Dunham expressed this sweet sentiment:

Taylor Swift's ex-beau, Connor Kennedy, was arrested on Tuesday with his father Robert Kennedy Jr. and green activist-actress, Daryl Hannah while participating in a protest against the Keystone XL pipeline project.
According to the New York Times, the three were among four dozen protesters "who zip-tied themselves to the White House fence and defied police orders to leave... [they were]
charged with failure to disperse and obey lawful orders, and released on $100 bond each."
Kennedy and his fellow Sierra Club protesters took action to encourage President Obama to veto to the Keystone XL oil pipeline project that would result in a "1,700-mile pipeline, which would carry heavy crude from oil sands formations in Alberta to refineries on the Gulf Coast," the Times report says.
So grateful for the 5 Academy of Country Music Awards nominations I got today. And happy that it's the 13th. And thankful for you.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 14, 2013

On Sunday night, Taylor Swift supposedly mocked Harry Styles during her show-opening performance of "We Are Never Getting Back Together," and now the 23-year-old pop songstress is dressing eerily similar to her One Direction ex-beau in her music video for "22."
Photos of the starlet's newest music video shoot surfaced Tuesday, and T-Swift is sporting a green beanie in the pics very much like the one that Styles has sported on several occasions. Check out the Yahoo story for proof. With lyrics like “It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters, and make fun of our exes," it's hard not to think there's some kind of link.
Although the connection may seem direct, Swift told Ryan Seacrest in a recent interview that "22" wasn't about Styles.
"I wrote that about my friends, like finally I've got this amazing group of girlfriends and we tell each other everything, we're together all the time," Swift said. "And I think that was kind of the marker of me being 22, like having all these friends and there's all these question marks in your life, but the one thing that you have is that you have each other."
After wrapping the music video, the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer then tweeted that she almost forgot she was working while filming it:
Leaving LA now after the best day with my friends. Almost forgot it was a video shoot. Can't wait for you guys to see it.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 12, 2013
If you missed her supposed dig at Styles during the Grammys, take a look at the video below where you can hear her say, "He called me up and he was like, 'I still love you'," which Swift said in a British accent. She finished the mid-song speech with, "And I'm like, 'I'm sorry, I'm busy opening up the Grammys!' And we're never getting back together, like, ever."
Styles' One Direction boy band-mates encouraged him to "be the bigger person," and not retaliate against his ex, according to KTLA reporter Sam Rubin. Swift skipped the Grammys after-parties because of the "22" shoot the next day, and spent the night with her cat (see the Instagram photo below):
Video shoot early tomorrow, so my Grammy after-party situation looks like......... instagr.am/p/VlQc_XDvNz/— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 11, 2013
Think she did it to avoid Styles?
Swift and Styles were seen smooching on New Year's Eve and spent her 23rd birthday together in London before reportedly splitting in January. The One Direction heartthrob is just the latest in a long line of rumored boyfriends for Swift, including Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer.
Do you think Swift crossed a line at the Grammys? What do you think of the photos from the "22" shoot? Let us know in the comments.
Justin Bieber was left out of last weekend's Grammys festivities, but he managed to keep his presence up, hosting "Saturday Night Live" and a shirtless livestream slated for the same time as the award show. However, Patrick Carney, one-half of The Black Keys who took home the awards for Best Rock Performance and Rock Song, showed little love for the Biebs.
"I don't know. He's rich, right?" Carney replied, between signing autographs. "Grammys are for like ... music, not for money and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy, I guess."
Bieber's response to the comment?
the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) February 12, 2013
Carney took to Twitter for a response of his own:
It's cool when you get cornered outside your hotel by a guy with a camera and they ask you a dumb question and then put it on TV. :(— Pat.r.ick (@patrickcarney) February 12, 2013

Last week photographers caught a glimpse of Gisele and her daughter Vivian Lake after the duo touched down in Hawaii for a vacation, and this weekend the media snapped some shots of the proud mama in a bikini, just nine weeks after giving birth.
On Friday, Bundchen posted a photo of her and 9-week-old Vivian, her second child with her husband and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, to her Facebook account.
The Brazilian supermodel captioned the photo of her and her daughter in English and Portuguese:
"Love is everything!!! Happy friday, much love to all.
O amor é tudo!!! Uma ótima sexta, muito amor a todos."
The two also have a 3-year-old son, Benjamin, and Brady has a 5-year-old son, Jack, from a former relationship.
What do you think of the photos of Vivian? Are you surprised Bundchen is already on the beach? Let us know in the comments.
Are country darlings Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift in a feud?
Underwood sets the record straight with Gayle King in a CBS interview airing this week.
"No," said Underwood. "Not that I know of, at least!"
How did the rumor begin?
It's probably because of an Us Weekly report saying Grammy execs were ordered to keep the two from crossing paths last night at the awards show.
The Huffington Post reports there was no such request.
However, Underwood wasn't above poking fun at Swift with Brad Paisley at the Country Music Awards last fall.
Hear what else Underwood has to say during the complete interview on CBS Wednesday.

The proud mama, and wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, shielded her daughter's face from the sun and smiled as photographers got the exclusive shot, available at E! Online.
Bunchen gave birth to daughter Vivian Lake on Dec. 5, and announced the newest Brady addition via Facebook with a photo of the teeny one.

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" matriarch and star "Mama" June Shannon claims to have lost more than 100 pounds just in time for the TLC reality series' Sunday return. Mama June, who was criticized for her family's unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits documented on the show (and parodied by "South Park"), said she not only lost the weight but did so without diet or exercise.
"I haven't done any surgeries ... no diet pills ... never went to the gym," June told TMZ. "But with the show I've been more active." The celeb gossip site reports that June has gone from 365 pounds in 2011 to a present day 263. But despite her weight loss, June assured The Huffington Post, "We love fried food."
On top of the weight drop, June has also gone blonde, also telling The Huffington Post, "No, I have not felt no pressure to change. I was blond about six years ago and I wanted to go back blond, so I went back blond and I loved it."
What do you think of Mama June's dramatic weight loss? Will you watch this weekend's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" clip show?

Though he tried to hold back, legendary actor Robert De Niro broke down this week on Katie Couric's show "Katie."
De Niro, costar Bradley Cooper, and director David Russell were discussing their movie "Silver Linings Playbook." Couric asked De Niro if he felt more responsibility playing a role that hits close to home for the director -- the movie deals with bipolar disorder and Russell's son suffers from it.
"I don't like to get emotional," De Niro told Couric after fighting to compose himself. "But I know what he goes through."
Cooper seemed to get emotional, too. He patted De Niro's back before bowing his own head and covering his face with his hands.
De Niro's father, who passed away in 1993, was thought to be bipolar, reports nypost.com.

Carolyn Hommel, a former executive at OWN, has filed a lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey's network for sex discrimination. Hommel says her duties were reassigned to a temporary employee because of "her pregnancy and pregnancy-related medical conditions," E! News reports. Michael Garner, Hommel's direct superior at the network, had reportedly given the former senior director of scheduling and acquisition positive performance reviews prior to her pregnancy and "negative and untruthful performance" reports following. After Hommel's maternity leave in the spring of 2012, her position was eliminated due to restructuring and she was passed over for a VP job (which she was told to apply to) in favor of the temporary employee, reports E! News.
Hommel's lawyer told ABCNews.com, "Personal vendettas are not on her agenda. At the same time, she's disappointed that the management allowed this to go on."
OWN has yet to comment on the lawsuit. Same goes for Oprah. (But on another note, we hear she had a lovely foot massage.)

The Duchess of Cambridge, 30, is offering a glimpse of her royal baby bump.
It's just a glimpse, though. She's certainly not wearing tight-fitting workout gear or a form-fitting black dress in front of the cameras like Kim Kardashian did last week (both ladies are due in July). Instead, the Duchess opted for a cape and leggings while strolling through London.
She's been out in public more, which may mean she is feeling better after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. But there haven't been any recent updates from the palace on her condition.
Here's what what Prince William had to say about his wife's pregnancy sickness when news of it came out.

Attention, bump watchers!
Kim Kardashian is showing off her growing baby bump.
Check out this video from Splash News, which shows mommy-to-be Kardashian, 32, flaunting her growing midsection. She is having a baby, of course, with Kanye West. West announced the pregnancy at one of his shows about a month ago.
Though her bump is on display, Kardashian told Jimmy Kimmel that her baby will not be. She said she does not want her baby to be featured on her reality show.
