Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have decided not to have any more children.
The pair had planned to add to their brood, Dylan (6), Carys (3) and Cameron, Douglas' 27-year-old son with ex-wife Diandra Luker, but have decided to settle on two.
Douglas says, "I think Catherine's resigned to the fact. She's gone back and forth on the subject, but when she gets back into work, I think she realises that two are enough and I say to her, 'Just think of your stepson as your third child'."

TOM Cruise and Paramount Pictures have ended their 14-year production deal.
The chairman of the studio's parent company, Viacom Inc, cited the actor's off-screen antics as the main reason.
In the past year, Tom couch-hopped on Oprah Winfrey's talk show while proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes, criticised the use of anti-depressants and claimed that post-natal depression does not exist.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Viacom Inc chairman Sumner Redstone said, "As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal. His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."
But, Paula Wagner, Tom's partner in his production company, said that agents for Cruise/Wagner Productions stopped negotiating with Paramount more than a week ago.
