This BBC News Reporter Couldn’t Care Less About Royal Baby No. 3

A little over a month after Kate Middleton and Prince William announced that they’re expecting their third child, Kensington Palace confirmed this week that their new bundle of joy is due in April 2018. While a lot of people were excited by the news, others were . . . somewhat unimpressed.

BBC news reporter Simon McCoy was live on air when the announcement was made, and he relayed the information in his own unique way. «Now, bearing in mind that they announced that she was pregnant back in September, I’m not sure how much news this really is,» he said with a bit of a sarcastic laugh. «But anyway…clear your diaries, get the time booked off, cause that’s what I’m doing.» Of course, Twitter users were quick to pick up on his funny report, and we have to agree with them: he did make us laugh!

Everything We Know So Far About Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Third Baby

Kensington Palace announced in September that Kate Middleton and Prince William have a third royal baby on the way, and we could not be more excited. Not only does this mean Princess Charlotte and Prince George will have a new sibling to play with, but there’s also a chance we’ll be treated to even more sweet family moments. While we patiently await the little one’s arrival, here’s everything we know so far about the new baby Cambridge.

The Name

While it’s still unclear whether Will and Kate have already a chosen a name for their little one, the couple have very limited options. There is no official rule that forbids them from choosing any particular name, but there is an accepted rule that states that names will be chosen from a selection of historic royal names. Victoria, Elizabeth, Alice, Alexandra, and Anne are the most common names for girls, while Henry, Richard, Charles, James, and Albert have been used in the past for boys.

The Due Date

In October, Kensington Palace announced that Will and Kate’s latest bundle of joy is set to arrive in April 2018.

Place in Line For the Throne

Because of the Succession to the Crown Act, which was put in place in March 2015, the new royal baby will be fifth in line for the throne after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte and before his or her uncle Prince Harry, regardless of whether it’s a girl or boy.

Drop Everything — Hook and Emma Might Be Expecting a Baby on Once Upon a Time

We can already tell that Jennifer Morrison’s return to Once Upon a Time will be incredibly emotional. After announcing her departure from the fairy-tale series last season, the actress will reprise her role as Emma Swan in the upcoming season seven episode «A Pirate’s Life.» Not only do the recent photos include an adorable family reunion with adult Henry, but they also signal that Emma might be pregnant! Cue major squealing. While Hook and Emma stare longingly into each other’s eyes, they are seen touching her stomach. As if that wasn’t enough to drive you crazy, there also appears to be two Hooks. Is this the Enchanted Forest or did we die and go to heaven? No, seriously, what is happening, OUAT?

While we originally thought that Emma would sacrifice herself for her loved ones, what if she actually heads back to Storybrooke with Hook by her side to raise their unborn baby? I know what you’re thinking: how is this possible if Hook is currently in Hyperion Heights? Well, if you watch OUAT, you should already know that literally anything is possible on this show. As some fans pointed out, these new versions of Hook, Regina, and Rumple might actually be «mirror-images» of the characters we’ve all grown to love. Not only would this make for an interesting twist, but it would certainly be the perfect way to keep all those «happy endings» from season six intact.

Tyra Banks Is No Longer Smizing At The Father Of Her Baby

Tyra Banks and new boyfriend out for lunch

Erik Asla woke up to Tyra mail recently, and it was just a slip of paper saying, “When I come home, your shit better not be in any of my Tyra closets.Page Six says Tyra Banks and Erik, a photographer and her baby daddy, have quit each other after five years. The two have a son, York Banks Asla, who was born in January 2016.

Page Six spilled back in the summer of 2016 that the two were on the skids because parenthood was a lot harder was supposed to be aka Erik was finding it difficult doting every waking hour of the day to a cooing crier AND a new baby! Erik moved out of their LA estate, and a source says what all sources say, “It came drama-free and they’re co-parenting their young son.” Yeah, whatever you say source. They said back in ’16 that Tyra was bringing her tough TV persona home, so that means the breakup went more like this:

Although, this pair really might be friends. Erik’s been hired to shoot photos of the reboot of America’s Next Top Model now that Tyra gave Rita Ora the old heave-ho and is back to terrorize aspiring models and scream at them for not being able to walk down the side of a building in a torrential downpour rocking the latest Kohl’s Kollection. For me, I’m just hoping the PLOT TWIST episode is when she pulls that “Two girls stand before me…” nonsense and then says, “JK, girl! Y’all good! Erik, get the fuck out of here.

Open Post: Hosted By A Special Moment Between Baby Dolphins And Squirrels

openpostbabydolphinssquirrel2017

Amy Schumacher recently paid a visit to the sea creature Alcatraz that is SeaWorld in Orlando and pulled out her cell phone and hit the record button when her eyes took in the awww-inducing sight of imprisoned baby dolphins trying to make friends with free squirrels. The baby dolphins are like, “Squirrels: How do they work?” Those dolphins are probably wondering why those silly-looking crabs are wearing weird-looking furry coats, and why do they get to be free in the world while their asses are locked up? Meanwhile, the squirrels don’t give one fuck about those adorable baby dolphins, because they’re too busy hunting for a piece of hot dog bun that someone’s brat accidentally dropped on the ground.

I’d like to think that dolphins and squirrels can speak telepathically, and are secretly working on a plan to get the former out. If life was a Pixar movie, those squirrels would recruit other squirrel friends and they’d stand on each other’s shoulders, throw a lab coat over them, and pretend to be a human dolphin doctor who has arrived at SeaWorld Orlando to transport the baby dolphins to SeaWorld San Diego. But knowing those damn squirrels, one would run off after spotting a piece of hot dog bun on the ground, and the jig would be up!

This Royal Rule Will Secure Princess Charlotte’s Place in Line For the Throne After Baby No. 3

The arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child next Spring will not only make 2-year-old Princess Charlotte a big sister, but perhaps the world’s most famous middle child as well. Even though she may have to fight for a little more of her parents’ attention once her sibling arrives, Charlotte will probably be pleased to know that thanks to a change in a centuries-old royal rule, the one thing the new baby can’t take from her is her place in line for the British throne.

Under the Act of Settlement of 1701, all brothers would be allowed to jump ahead of their sisters in the line of succession, meaning that even if a girl was born first, the arrival of her younger brother would immediately move her down the list. Modern examples of the system of male primogeniture include Princess Anne, who is the second-born and only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II; at the time of her birth, Anne was third in line for the throne after her mother, then-Princess Elizabeth, and her older brother Prince Charles — but with the births of Princes Andrew and Edward after her, Anne slipped down to fifth.

In April 2013, the Succession to the Crown Act was assented, and was officially put into place in March 2015 — just two months before Charlotte was born. The update ended male primogeniture, making it possible for all royal baby girls to uphold their position in the succession line, regardless of any brothers born after them. The rule applies to all royals born after Oct. 28, 2011, and means that Charlotte’s place as fourth in line (after her grandfather, father, and big brother Prince George) is secured, even if her younger sibling is a boy. The new baby Cambridge will be fifth in line, and Prince Harry will be sixth.

The update ended male primogeniture, making it possible for all royal baby girls to uphold their position in the succession line, regardless of any brothers born after them.

There are other major changes that came with the Succession to the Crown Act: in addition to protecting the succession status of royal girls, amendments were made that now allow royal family members to marry a Roman Catholic and still become king or queen — previously, no one in the direct line of succession could marry a Catholic and keep their right to the throne. This is because the monarch also serves as Head of the Protestant Anglican Church of England, which was established back in the 16th century by Henry VIII. It also got rid of a rule that required those outside the first six people in line for the throne to seek approval to marry from the current monarch. This is good news for Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, who, with his upcoming status as seventh in line will officially be able to marry whoever he wants without having to get permission from his mom first.

Princess Charlotte will remain fourth in line to the British throne no matter how many more children Will and Kate have in the future. The only people who are guaranteed to stand in her way are her brother George’s future children, who, despite their sex, will take their places ahead of her.

Why the Next Royal Baby Could Be Coming Sooner Than We All Think

The British royal family is about to add another prince or princess to its lineage, but what do we really know about Kate Middleton’s pregnancy this time around?

On Sept. 4, Kate and her husband, Prince William, formally announced that they are expecting baby number three. Ever since that moment, fans of the royal family have been wondering when Prince George (who is 4 years old) and Princess Charlotte (who is 2 years old) could be expecting their next sibling.

While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have always liked to keep their family life private, Prince William might’ve accidentally revealed that baby number three is closer than expected. After the official announcement was made in early September, many assumed that Kate was less than 12 weeks pregnant, which would mean the baby could arrive anytime between March and June 2018.

A few publications, on the other hand, were under the impression that the couple had waited until the recommended three-month mark to announce Kate’s pregnancy, which would place the baby’s due date sometime in April 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the future monarch might have revealed that the April date is wrong and that the couple’s next child is due even earlier than that. During a visit with Spitalfields Crypt Trust — a charity that helps with addiction and homelessness in East London — Prince William hinted that his next child could be arriving sooner than people have guessed, according to The Guardian. William reportedly told a midwife on the site, «All the best with the midwifery, I may see you sooner than you think.»

Prince William also answered a question from a member of the National Mental Health and Policing Conference in early September, saying, «It was a bit anxious to start with, but [we can] start celebrating this week,» implying that Kate was at the 12-week mark before he gave his answer, suggesting that the baby is in fact due in March.

So there you have it. Kate is expecting her third child with William, and followers of the royal family are estimating that a March 2018 due date is the most likely situation for the next royal baby. If the baby comes a little late, perhaps April 2018 will in fact be when the little one arrives!

You’re Going to Freak Out at How This Is Us Predicted the Kardashian Baby Boom

Season two of This Is Us premiered on Tuesday night, and as expected, tears were shed. But early on in the episode, one line from Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) had us putting down the Kleenex and looking for our crystal balls. Just hours after news broke that Khloé Kardashian is pregnant with her first child and days after Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy news was announced, Kevin joked about the Kardashian brood multiplying, and it was so timely, it’s like his good looks gave him psychic capabilities.

Kevin is on the phone with his girlfriend, Sophie, who is devastated she can’t make it to Los Angeles to possibly see the Kardashians (and celebrate his birthday, of course), when he jokes, «The Kardashians aren’t going anywhere . . . I promise, they’re like gremlins, by next week, there’ll be like a bazillion more of them.»

Unless the season premiere was edited a few hours before it aired, which we highly doubt, the writers pretty much predicted the Kardashian baby boom when the episode was filmed months ago, and it left fans shook. Read on to see some of the best reactions, and Kevin, feel free to let us in on any other celebrity pregnancy announcements you see coming in the near future!
