The Frustacis became the first American couple to have septuplets on May 21, 1985, but four of the premature babies died.

Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger will celebrate his 60th birthday today with a party in Prague so tony that former Czech President Vaclav Havel is on the guest list, and so hush-hush that Havel says even he doesn't know where it will take place. "We will be told at the last minute," Havel's aide said. Jagger is hosting the super-secret bash a day before the Stones perform in Prague on the European leg of their "Forty Licks" tour.
