KJ Apa is a Dad! The Riverdale Star and Clara Berry Just Welcomed a Baby Boy

So far, more than a few celebrities welcomed babies in 2021. We saw stars like Sasha Pieterse, Rupert Grint, Mindy Kaling, and Nicki Minaj expand their families last year. And the baby train keeps on trucking this year. 

Of course, having a child during a pandemic can be…interesting, to say the least. Carson Daly, who welcomed his fourth child with Siri Pinter Daly in 2020, opened up about the experience. “Thank you all so much for the overwhelming well wishes & prayers for the medical staff at hospitals everywhere & all those affected,” he wrote on Instagram. “We are with them & appreciate their tireless work during this crazy time.”

Britney vs. Spears: Read Netflix’s official description of this doc, below.  Streaming on Netflix 

“The world knows Britney Spears: performer, artist, icon. But in the last few years, her name has been publicly tied to another, more mysterious term: conservatorship. Britney vs Spears tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom. Featuring years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews and new documents, this Netflix feature film paints a thorough portrait of the pop star’s trajectory from girl next door to a woman trapped by fame and family and her own legal status. It shows Britney’s life without utilizing the traumatic images that have previously defined her. Director Erin Lee Carr (How to Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money) and journalist Jenny Eliscu work to delve deep into the tangled history of the conservatorship that has been in place for over 13 years. The film weaves a shocking timeline of old and new players, secret rendezvous and Britney’s behind-the-scenes fight for her own autonomy. Text messages and a voicemail as well as new interviews with key players make clear what Britney herself has attested: the full story has yet to be told.”

“Ambar (Cristina Rodlo) is embarking on her American Dream after years spent dutifully tending to her terminally ill mother in Mexico.

After finding cash-in-hand work at a local garment factory, she rents the cheapest room available from Red (Marc Menchaca) in a near derelict boarding house. Kept awake by the other tenants’ sobbing, disturbing nightmares and strange unearthly noises echoing from the basement, Ambar begins to wonder exactly who—or what—lives inside the house with them. Soon it becomes clear that Ambar has walked into a trap, one where she will soon be introduced to the evil that has been lurking in the basement. Ambar must fight to escape her living nightmare, but in a house where no one listens to the screams, will she ever get out alive?”

Ben Affleck Reportedly Flew From LA to NYC Just to Watch Jennifer Lopez Perform

Ben Affleck’s boyfriend game is getting stronger every day.

On September 25, Jennifer Lopez performed some of her greatest hits at the Global Citizen Live Concert in Central Park. For her set, Lopez belted out throwbacks like “If You Had My Love,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “I’m Real,” and “Ain’t It Funny” in a black jumpsuit with gold appliqué. Though Affleck was not pictured arriving at the event or seen in the crowd, a source revealed that he flew all the way from Los Angeles to NYC to support her. 

“Jennifer and Ben were apart for a few days earlier this week. They met up in N.Y.C. yesterday,” a source told People. “Ben wanted to be by her side and attended the event. He watched her perform.” The source added, “They are always supportive of each other’s careers. Ben has to be in Texas to film this coming week.” 

Sure enough, Affleck was photographed helping Lopez navigate a flight of stairs in stilettos following her performance and subsequent outfit change. This time, Lopez wore jeans and an iconic sequined JLo t-shirt.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were last seen in public together earlier this month at the 2021 Met Gala where they shared a kiss through their masks for the cameras. Later, Affleck was finally able to gush about Lopez for the first time since their relationship went public.

“All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them,” he told AdWeek for a profile published on September 20.

“I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is. At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people,” he continued. “Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country. That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.”

All the Celebrities Who Announced That They’re Expecting Babies In 2021

King and her fiancé, Dan Tooker, announced on March 3 that they’re expecting their first child together. King was careful to note that, for some women trying to have children, her announcement might hurt.

“I hope that all mothers-to-be, in whatever sense that may be, know that I am trying to be very sensitive,” she wrote. “You see, this miracle baby comes after two very big losses. It’s a terrifying and extremely painful experience for everyone….I remember every pregnancy announcement felt like a dagger to me. So I want to be very delicate and say to YOU! That soon to be mom, who’s maybe had a loss, or has been struggling with fertility, I’m telling you, our babies come.” 

Already an empathetic mom!

Meghan Markle Glowed in a White Minidress at the Global Citizen Live Concert

Prince Harry is not the only one making a fashion statement during his trip to New York City with Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex rounded out their visit in a look that is bound to turn heads.

On September 25, Markle appeared at the Global Citizen Live Concert event in a white Valentino minidress with short sleeves and monochrome embellishments. Markle was practically glowing in the end-of-summer diversion from the fall staples she’d been donning throughout the rest of her time in the Big Apple. She paired the look with black pumps and a loose low ponytail.

At the event, the Duke and Duchess walked hand-in-hand before speaking to the Central Park crowd about global vaccine equity. “Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That’s the point, but that’s not happening,” Markle said, per People. “And while in this country and many others, you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world cannot.” 

She continued, “This year, the world’s expected to produce enough doses to meet the target of vaccinating 70% of people in every single country. But it is wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has only gone to just 10 wealthy nations so far, and not everyone else. It’s just not OK.”

“Guys, we have what we need to vaccinate the world, but the experts told us, ‘Here’s what’s getting in the way,” her husband, Prince Harry added. “They said many countries are ready to produce vaccines at home, yet they aren’t allowed to, because ultra-wealthy pharmaceutical companies are not sharing the recipes to make them. These countries have the means, the ability, and the workers to start manufacturing. All they’re waiting for is the vaccine intellectual property to be waived and for the vaccine technology to be transferred over. And by the way, many of these vaccines were publicly funded. They are your vaccines; you paid for them.”

Meghan Markle concluded, “Just think about the millions of vaccines that have been discarded this year. That’s like throwing away life vests when those around you are drowning.”

The Crown Season 5 Will Hit Netflix in November 2022

Fans of The Crown, we have some good news for you! After creator Peter Morgan announced he would end the award-winning series with season five, he reversed course and will proceed with the original plan for six seasons. And it looks like things are already underway on season five.

In a statement from Netflix, Morgan said that as he and the team began discussing storylines for season five, it became apparent that “in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.” 

Netflix’s then vice president of original content, Cindy Holland, added, “The Crown keeps raising the bar with each new season. We can’t wait for audiences to see the upcoming fourth season, and we’re proud to support Peter’s vision and the phenomenal cast and crew for a sixth and final season.”

However, even with the good news, fans shouldn’t expect a deep dive into the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s—Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s—courtship, or their decision to step back from senior roles. (That’s still good news for Prince Harry, who reportedly hoped this would happen.) Says Morgan: “To be clear, season six will not bring us any closer to present day—it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.” 

Season four featured Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth, Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, and Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret. (Claire Foy, Matt Smith, and Vanessa Kirby famously originated the roles in the first two seasons.) It also marked the first appearance of Princess Diana (Emma Corrin), as Diana and Charles’s dysfunctional relationship was front and center. 

Netflix also confirmed that famed British stage actress Imelda Staunton—who some may remember played Professor Umbridge in the Harry Potter films—will take over as Queen Elizabeth in season five. 

“I have loved watching The Crown from the very start,” Staunton said. “As an actor it was a joy to see how both Claire Foy and Olivia Colman brought something special and unique to Peter Morgan’s scripts. I am genuinely honored to be joining such an exceptional creative team and to be taking The Crown to its conclusion.”

Emily in Paris Season 2 Drops on December 22—and the First Footage Is Here

Bravo also told Glamour he thinks Gabriel loves Camille very much, “but he also shares a lot of [passion] with Emily.” “There’s sexual chemistry, yes, but there’s more to it than that,” he said. “I think he’s still in the process of understanding what’s going on, so we will have to wait for Darren to decide.” 

But it won’t be just our old favorites returning! Lots of faces were added to the cast on Monday, May 24, when a press release announced a slew of new characters. Most exciting is Jeremy O. Harris, writer of the upcoming Zola movie, as Gregory Elliott Dupree, “an iconic fashion designer and former protégé of Pierre Cadault…. Pierre and Gregory were close, until Gregory’s unexpected and dramatic exit from the atelier left them bitter rivals.” 

Another flashy role goes to Arnaud Binard as Laurent G, “charming and gregarious owner of a popular Saint Tropez nightclub…. Emily meets Laurent when he agrees to promote one of her brands, but soon learns that his connection to Savoir is more complicated than marketing.” And has Emily finally met her match? Lucien Laviscount (Scream Queens) will play 30-year-old London boy Alfie, who “refuses to speak French or immerse himself in French culture.” He works for a U.K. bank but prefers to party. Sounds like a perfect foil for a certain young marketing savant we know.

We just learned that August 4 was the final day of filming season two, which means we are getting closer and closer to finding out the fates of our favorite expat. “Last day on set and I can’t imagine wrapping on a more perfect note with my @emilyinparis partner in crime,” Collins wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture with Park. “I’m not crying, you’re crying!…”

Until season two drops, you’ll find us rewatching season one, buying Emily’s phone case (which actually belonged to costume designer Patricia Field), and brushing up on our French. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
