Offset Arrested for Gun Possession; How Much of His Baby’s Life Will He Miss?

You know, there are constantly storries about celebs getting secretly married. They sound fake … until we remember Cardi B marrying Offset in a secret ceremony and waiting like a year to tell the world.

Well, we wonder if Cardi might B having some second thoughts about that union … because Offset, the father of her child, was just arrested.

We hate to sound judgmental, but … why did he need to drive around with all of these guns?

TMZ reports that Offset was arrested on Friday. The arrest followed the vehicle being pulled over just outside of Atlanta.

We should note that, while TMZ reports that the Migos rapper was pulled over for tinted windows, CBS 46 reports that the vehicle was pulled over for an improper lane change.

Whatever the reason, officers discovered three firearms in the vehicle — alarming under any circumstances, but worse for Offset who is a convicted felon.

Offset now faces four charges, two of which are felonies.

The charges include possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a weapon during a crime, which are both felonies.

Offset is also charged with possession of marijuana (one ounce or less) and an improper lane change.

Offset is reportedly being held without bond.

It is probably important to note that Offset has a lengthy criminal history.

At only 26 years of age, he has posed for more than a dozen mugshots since he turned 18. He is currently serving 5 years of probation.

One would hope that a successful career as a hip hop artist and, more importantly, welcoming the birth of his daughter with Cardi B just two weeks ago would have discouraged him from further criminal activity.

Unfortunately, based upon the charges that have been filed against him, it does not appear that he has learned that lesson.

(That said, obviously the marijuana charge, like all marijuana charges, is bogus in that plants shouldn’t be illegal — and, though we don’t have all of the details, some say that a lane change should not land a guy behind bars)

Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, was pulled over with his bodyguard.

In addition to the three guns, he was in possession of $ 107,000 in cash.

That isn’t criminal and may be standard in the hip hop world, but it’s something that many police are trained to consider suspicious.

The traffic stop took place in Jonesboro, which is about 20 minutes or so outside of Atlanta.

The vehicle in question was a 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera.

Cardi B and Offset just welcomed the birth of their daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, earlier this month.

And … we might not love Wendy Williams, but we absolutely believe in giving credit where credit is due.

Months ago, Wendy Williams predicted that Cardi B would be raising her baby alone.

As heartbreaking as it sounds, a lot of fans cannot help but wonder if Wendy was right after all.

Being charged with two felonies and a couple of other charges while on probation is … not ideal. Especially when you have a rap sheet like Offset’s.

That said, Cardi B is a rising star, and Offset is no pauper, either.

It seems likely that his attorneys will be able to get the charges reduced, at the very least.

In fact, if it weren’t for his status as a felon on probation, we would predict that he wouldn’t serve a day in jail after bond is posted.

But he is a felon, he is on probation, and he’s being held without bond.

This situation may be familiar to Offset, but our hearts go out to Cardi and to their daughter.


Joanna Gaines Reveals Baby’s Name, Photo… and More!

He’s here, folks!

Yes, we wrote HE.

A day after Chip Gaines announced to the world that his wife had given birth to the beloved couple’s fifth child, his wife Joanna jumped on Twitter to provide a few key updates about this bundle of joy.

First, see the above pronoun: the HGTV stars are now parents to a little boy.

Second, Joanna revealed the boy’s name in her first Twitter post since this miraculous development.

“Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here & we couldn’t be more in love,” she wrote, expounding as follows:

“He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early – which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one.

“Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”

We’re glad everyone is doing okay after such an early birth.

And we’re glad to have a few photos from the big day, starting with this look at the newborn:

“And then there were 5,” Chip had written on Saturday in regard to this news, adding on Twitter:

“The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great!”

Joanna, meanwhile, shared numerous images from the day Crew entered the world, joining siblings Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13 in the process.

She labeled this one her “favorite.”

One of my favorite pics a friend showed me after Crew was born. They couldn’t wait to meet their new baby brother, said Joanna of this sweet snapshot.

Chip and Joanna confirmed late last year that Season 5 of Fixer Upper would be the show’s last.

A few weeks later, they helped explain why by sharing Joanna’s pregnancy with their followers.

Ever since, the reality stars have kept social media followers well apprised of her baby bump status and their journey in general.

That clearly won’t be changing any time soon, as Joanna also posted the following beautiful image of her and Chip in the hospital:

“CONGRATS 2 u and Chips & the other 4 kiddos—May “CREATOR”–GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALLL IN THE PALM OF “HIS” LOVING ARMS!! BLSSINGS My favorite fixer-upper!!” wrote one Twitter in response to Joanna’s photographic update.

“Now THAT is too dang adorable and precious,” added another.

Joanna works as a home designer and Chip a home renovator, but the former is also an author and the couple also owns a restaurant and has its hand in other business ventures related to these industries.

They’ve grown in fame due mostly to their humor and chemistry as a couple.

To conclude her update, Joanna published this picture down below.

It pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?

the gaineseses

Crew is the couple’s first son who hasn’t been given a name that starts with the letter D.

We don’t know why they broke from tradition, but they must have been thinking differently overall in this case.

Only 339 boys in the entire United States were named Crew last year.

Please join us in sending your heartfelt congratulations to Chip, Joanna and the whole Gaines family!


Prince William Drops MAJOR Hint on Royal Baby’s Gender

With Duchess Kate Middleton ready to give birth in the near future, this royal pregnancy is getting more and more attention.

And it appears that Prince William may have dropped a massive hint about whether they’re expecting a little prince or a little princess.

Is this a major royal gaffe?

Like a large number of people, Prince William is a fan of sports.

Specifically, he enjoys soccer, which is called “football” in … well, outside of the United States, where soccer is popular even among adults.

The Prince is a fan of the Aston Villa Football Club, and celebrated Jack Grealish’s successful and dramatic win for his side when he played against Cardiff City.

In his enthusiasm, it appears that he let something slip about his third child with Kate Middleton.

Referring to Grealish’s skill on the field and accomplishments during that particular game, William told fans:

“I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack.”

After a brief pause, in which he may have realized what he had said, he added:

“…Or Jackie.”

Is this a huge reveal and therefore a major royal gaffe?

It is difficult to tell, but many believe that Prince William accidentally leaked his child’s expected sex.

When one is excited, even a royal who has been schooled from birth to keep things private can have a loosened tongue.

That would certainly shoot down rumors that Kate Middleton is expecting twin girls. (Everyone loves a twin story)

But we should mention that it is also possible that was entirely joking about the name “Jack” and only threw in the “Jackie” line so that people would not jump to conclusions.

Obviously, that did not work out the way that he may have planned.

As for the name itself, well, regardless of the little one’s sex, Prince William is probably joking.

Even regular, non-royal people need to be thoughtful about the names that they give to their children.

If we all just picked the names of people we admire for our children, it could backfire when prospective employers refuse to interview someone named “Magneto” or decline to hire yet another “Carrie Fisher” because they already have a dozen and it’s already creating confusion at the office.

For royals, the pressures when it comes to names are even more intense. 

Look at William’s children’s names: George and Charlotte.

George is a traditional name in his family, and St. George is said to have slain Britain’s last dragon, and is the patron saint of England. 

Charlotte is another name from his family, most notably of Queen Charlotte of Mecklenberg-Strelitz. Also, the name Charlotte has its roots in Charles, the name of William’s father.

So it seems likely that whatever name they choose for this royal baby, it won’t be “Jack.”

(Probably for the best, since when people outside of the UK think of a famous British person by that name, they’re likely to think of Jack the Ripper)

This baby … who seems more and more likely to be a little prince … will probably have a name with a rich royal history.

A name deeply entrenched in British culture.

A name hich, zero offense to anyone named “Jack,” will probably have a less common air to it.

Now is more or less the right time for the couple to introduce a new child into the family.

Princess Charlotte just started preschool, so a new baby will be slightly more manageable.

And the child is also close enough in age to Charlotte and even George that they won’t feel like strangers from different generations.

They may or may not be playmates, but that will have more to do with personality and interests than it has to do with their ages.

We’re all looking forward to the birth of this next royal baby.

Even if it does end up being “Prince Jack.”


Amber Portwood Reveals Her Baby’s Name

Way back at the beginning of the year, Amber Portwood revealed her baby’s name … sort of.

It wasn’t an official reveal or a full name, and she never actually confirmed much of anything about the child she’s having with Andrew Glennon.

Until now, that is. 

The Teen Mom OG Reunion was missing two of its stars.

Farrah Abraham was absent because, you know, she got fired from Teen Mom. That whole story was a huge mess. It’s the end of an era — the Farrah era — and we can all sleep a little easier.

Amber Portwood, in the mean time, has not been fired — but she still couldn’t attend the reunion special in person.

Why? Because she’s super pregnant with her second child.

Just because she wasn’t up to flying out didn’t mean that she couldn’t attend. She spoke and answered questions through FaceTime.

One Twitter user’s question got asked: “Amber I’ve been dying to know, have you picked out a name for the baby?”

Without a pause, Amber replied:

“His name is going to be James Andrew Glennon.”

She then goes on to explain that they’re naming their son after not only his baby daddy (obviously), Andrew Glennon, but after Andrew’s father.

IMDB notes that James Glennon “died unexpectedly on October 19, 2006, from a blood clot resulting from surgery for prostate cancer.”

If you’re wondering why Andrew Glennon’s dad’s death is described on IMDB instead of on some old obituary page from a newspaper, it’s because Andrew is not the first Glennon in show business.

James Glennon was a famous cinematographer, whose most recognizable works include About Schmidt and Deadwood.

Not for nothing, but James’ father, Bert Glennon, was also a world-famous cinematographer.

And James’ mother was Mary Coleman, a script supervisor.

As we all remember from when we first learned that Andrew and Amber were a couple, they only met because Andrew was working as a producer on Marriage Boot Camp.

James Andrew Glennon will carry the names of his father and grandfather.

At the risk of wishing him into a career months before he’s even expected to be born, one cannot help but wonder if Amber’s second child will go into the entertainment industry in some capacity.

Obviously, though, no child should ever be pushed into following in their parent’s footsteps.

None of Andrew’s children need to be involved in cinematography at all in their professional lives.

Just like none of Amber’s children need to, um, become parents while they’re in high school.

We’re not saying that those are equal things, we’re just saying that each person has a right to choose their own destiny.

Amber Portwood also used her FaceTime interview to refer to Andrew Glennon as “the best rebound ever.”

She laughed afterwards and was clearly, clearly joking.

(Sure, one could argue that Andrew is, by definition, a rebound, since Amber basicallys tormed away from Matt Baier and into Andrew’s arms, but it’s clear that they’re serious about each other)

Amber also says that her family has been really accepting of Andrew, which she says is a good sign.

Honestly, if Andrew could watch Amber flip out on Marriage Boot Camp before they were in a relationship and he was still crazy about her, he’s definitely a keeper.

if somebody’s seen you at your worst and loves you, that might be the real deal.


Kylie Jenner: Fans Think They Know Her Baby’s Name!

Last year, it appeared that Kylie Jenner had gotten a butterfly tattoo for Travis Scott. Most people didn’t think much of it. But then came the news of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy.

Now that Kylie has welcomed her baby girl, everyone wants to know what this precious girl’s name will be.

But … has Kylie already revealed it through some not-so-subtle “hints?”

On May 27th, 2017, Kylie Jenner tweeted out a butterfly emoji with no commentary.

(I don’t know what kind of butterfly — it’s blue. Probably not a Xerxes Blue, since those are tragically extinct)

Kylie’s apparent obsession with butterflies during the summer of 2017 wasn’t exactly a secret. In fact, fans knew about that long before news of Kylie’s pregnancy was leaked.

Since Kylie gave birth on February 1st, her date of conception is estimated as having been between May 6th and May 10th (perhaps as early as May 5th).

Was it on May 27th that Kylie learned that she was pregnant? Was the butterfly emoji her way of marking the occasion?

Kylie Jenner Butterfly Necklace

Butterflies came up again in Kylie Jenner’s baby video.

On top of showing our first glimpse of Chicago West, showing Kylie’s baby bump in its many stages, and showing Kylie’s life and friends and family and giving us a hint of her actually giving birth …

… We also see a lot of butterflies.

The camera zooms in on Kylie’s butterfly necklace.

Kylie’s nursery is covered in butterflies. Seriously. It’s like an over-the-top supervillain lair for a butterfly-motif comics character.

Also, you know, you get to see the baby kick.

Some point out that perhaps, for Kylie, a butterfly is merely representative of pregnancy. It’s an apt metaphor.

Within a cocoon, a caterpillar liquefies and transforms and grows until it breaks free as a butterfly and starts its new life.

Kylie’s baby girl transformed from a single-celled zygote into an extremely tiny human while in Kylie’s uterus.

One could also look at the butterfly motif as representative of Kylie’s own transformation from a teen girl (yeah, she’s 20, but she got pregnant at 19) to a new mother.

But many can’t help but wonder if there’s more than just symbolism at play here.

Here’s the thing, folks:

That whole video thing that Kylie had made and released after she gave birth?

The way that people talk in it, it’s designed for her little baby to see when she’s old enough to, you know, understand that there’s more to the world than feeding and discomfort. (Because, honestly, that’s pretty much it for newborns)

So, are Kylie and Travis planning to show their little baby this video and then explain the metaphor behind why their nursery was decorated with a bunch of bugs?

Maybe. Or maybe … they’re planning on naming their daughter Butterfly.

It would be an odd choice, because Kylie Jenner is terrified of butterflies.

Maybe she overcame her fear with Travis and links that to their relationship and maybe to their baby?

We sure don’t know.

Hopefully, Kylie will announce her baby’s name soon. It may be Butterfly, as so many fans suspect. It may be something else.

Regardless, keep in mind that Kylie’s baby will definitely, definitely be able to afford a name change.


Kylie Jenner: I’m Just Gonna Hide Until My Baby’s Born!

This might break Kris Jenner’s heart.

You know how Kylie Jenner is pregnant, but refuses to confirm it — even when she’s been spotted out and about with a baby bump?

Well, now we know how long she intends to keep this to herself. In fact, we know when she’s planning to announce her baby news … and you won’t believe it.

People reports that their source informs them that Kylie wants to keep things relatively private for the next long while.

Specifically, their source says:

“Kylie wants to disappear and be out of the spotlight and focus on her health and happiness.”

Health and happiness are important, we’ll give her that.

But how long is she going to keep teasing fans about her pregnancy?

“Kylie isn’t going to publicly address her pregnancy until she gives birth.”

That is … technically her business but also laughably ridiculous. The entire world knows that she’s pregnant.

“She’s not doing any public appearances and just wanted to take six months off”

Taking time off is fine … though we wonder how it might impact her brand. Maybe she’s counting on her baby to balance things out?

Most shocking of all was this tidbit:

Apparently, Kylie’s baby shower “was organized just five days before it happened.”

That is … almost incomprehensible.

Maybe Kylie was unsure of whether or not to have one or maybe she was prompted to do it by Kim Kardashian’s baby shower or maybe she wanted to keep it quiet, but … wow.

Personally, I try to plan going to dinner or a movie days in advance. If I were planning a baby shower, I’d start the day that the pregnancy was announced … if not sooner.

We can understand a new mother’s desire to focus on her pregnancy and new baby, but … six months?

Kylie Jenner hasn’t spent six months out of the spotlight since she was in elementary school.

Now, everybody is totally entitled to a break.

That includes reality stars. They work a lot to get footage for their show, and then there are promotional gigs and the constant social media presence.

Anyone would want a vacation, right?

Especially someone who’s pregnant.

But … six months is a lot of time to all but disappear from the world, especially when the whole world is accustomed to seeing you give multiple updates on your life every day.

And there’s no telling how this could impact Kylie’s wildly successful makeup business. So … this is a little confusing.

But it makes sense when you think about what we’ve heard about Kylie feeling insecure over her pregnant body.

“Kylie is only trusting her closest friends and her sisters right now.”

That’s usually a good policy to keep.

“She wants to reveal things on her own terms but she’s, of course, having fun teasing everyone.”

From selfies that only capture her face to photos featuring massively oversized shirts to remaining a shut-in most of the time, Kylie’s definitely doing a lot of teasing.

“She knows all the attention is on her and her baby bump, but she won’t share until she wants to.”

That’s her right, even if some of her fans feel that she’s mocking them for being interested in the life that she’s openly shared with them until very recently.
