Joanna Gaines Ultrasound Raises Serious Concerns; Is Her Baby in Trouble?

Just a few days after Chip and Joanna Gaines announced to the world that they’re expecting their fifth child, medical experts say the couple may have cause for serious concern when it comes to the baby.

This concern centers around an ultrasound photo Joanna shared on Tuesday of her unborn baby.

On January 2, Chip confirmed the exciting news of a fifth bundle of joy on the way for him and his wife, as the Fixer Upper star shared an adorable picture (below) and wrote as a caption:

“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines.”

The HGTV stars are parents to four children: Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.

They’ll feature the kids occasionally on their wildly popular home renovation show, but only in snippets; only to show everyone gathered at home for some ice cream or something.

At various times last year, Chip made comments that hinted he and Joanna were trying (or thinking about trying) for another boy or girl.

As a follow-up to her husband’s cute news-breaking photo and message, Joanna posted a picture of her ultrasound, writing along with it:

“Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!”

Sadly, however, many Internet users are focused on something else.

According to TMZ sources and others in the medical community, it looks very much as if there’s excess fluid around the fetus.

This has many wondering if the baby has a condition known as hydrops fetalis, which can be fatal.

You can take a close look at the ultrasound below:

It’s important to note here that this one ultrasound image is not conclusive.

There are other angles and other photos an expert would need to study in order to determine whether extra fluid is in additional cavities such as the heart, lungs or abdomen.

So states a radiologist from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to TMZ.

Chip and Joanna announced in October that they were ending Fixer Upper after five seasons.

“While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with,” they said at the time, adding:

“Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen.”

Cynics questioned whether this decision was simply a contract negotiating ploy, but Chip and Joanna remained adamant that they simply needed a break.

And they cited their family as the main reason why.

“This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read,” they continued.

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

We don’t know how far along Joanna is, so it’s possible she was already pregnant at the time of this announcement.

All we can say now, meanwhile, is that we’ll keep the couple in our thoughts and we will wish them all the best.

This Kardashian Family Photo Raises Two Major Questions

The Kardashians and Jenners have unveiled a new holiday card…

… actually, allow us to amend this statement:

Most of the Kardashians and Jenners have unveiled a new holiday card.

In an image shared across the social media accounts of all featured above, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian all are posing for the camera.

(Most are doing so in very serious and dramatic fashion for some reason, too.)

But no Internet user out there cares very much about these women.

They only care about the one woman NOT in the picture.

We speak, of course, about Kylie Jenner.

Just like she was absent from the Kardashian Christmas card, despite rumors that she would reveal her pregnancy on the final version, Kylie is absent from this family photo as well.

And lest you think her absence is just something celebrity gossip sites are fixated on, as we attempt to stir up controversy where there is none, consider what Kourtney wrote as a caption on Instagram:

When you can’t find the rest of the family for the photo …

This is clearly a reference to Kylie’s whereabouts.

The 20-year old is expecting her very first child with semi long-time boyfriend Travis Scott.

But Kylie is yet to say a word about the bun in her oven, choosing instead to basically go radio silent on Twitter and Instagram ever since the news went viral.

This decision has irritated her followers, many of whom just wish to send Jenner their best wishes. They cannot do so, however, until she actually verifies the pregnancy herself.

Heck, the choice to keep mum has even led to a few crazy theories, such as some speculating that Kylie is Kim’s surrogate… and others thinking she has already had the baby.

We doubt either of these rumors are true.

But Kylie is Internet savvy.

She should realize that her ongoing silence on the issue is simply generating more and more chatter.

Why doesn’t she just set the record straight? Why doesn’t she confirm the news and announce her due date and watch the congratulations roll in?

There are two possibilities:

  1. She is just incredibly ashamed over this whole development and remains in some kind of denial.
  2. This is all part of a media strategy to be mysterious and quiet and then spring her baby bump (or the baby itself!) on folks once anticipation has reached its peak level.

For the record, we hear Jenner is due in February and is having a girl.

Elsewhere, with Khloe also expecting and Kim said to welcome her third child via the aforementioned surrogate, there’s a new rumor out:

Could Kendall Jenner ALSO be pregnant?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

The above selfie has people wondering because maybe, possibly there’s a baby bump there.

The model, though, has denied this crazy theory, joking online in response that she just “likes bagels” and, we guess, recently ate some.

We likely believe her.

But take another look at the family photo at the outset of this article.

Kendall is standing in the back, her belly covered up by the relatives in front of her.

Could this be because she’s hiding something?!?

We’re just asking.

Matt Roloff Raises Many Questions with This Family Photo

Matt Roloff was fortunate enough to deck the hall and jingle some bells with many members of his family on Christmas.

The Little People, Big World star shared a lovely photo on Instagram that was accompanied by a lengthy, profound and revealing caption.

First, the photo:

Now, the first part of Matt’s caption:

“A very Merry Christmas to you all! Jesus Christ is born …May God’s love, grace and blessings be abundant to each ..and every one of you!”

Very simple and to the point. We appreciate the sentiment.

Previously to this sharing, Roloff had gotten into a bit of trouble for other things he had shared on social media.

But what could fans possibly say in objection to this very sweet snapshot, right? (Wait for it. That’s what we in the business refer to as foreshadowing.)

“Our Christmas has been amazing so far,” Matt also wrote, adding mysteriously:

“After being a bit out of the full Christmas spirit the past few years …this Christmas brought on a full new meaning with the Roloff family expansion of our 2 new precious gifts of life… my new grandchildren Jackson and Ember are the biggest blessing one little man can ever have!!”

We’re sure that’s true, but Roloff has left many supporters wondering:

What did he mean by being “out of the full Christmas spirit the past few years?”

Might he be referring to the crumbling of his marriage to Amy Roloff, which finally came to an end in May of 2016 when the reality stars announced their divorce? 

Continued Matt:

“First, we had a lively family celebration a few nights ago at my house with several of my close friends, Caryn and of course the grandkids… (they filmed that so you all can share that with us in a ‘few long’ weeks)..

“then I went to Christmas Eve service with my dear friends Bill and Char last night… then a visit with Jer, Auj and the always smiling Ember Jean.

“Later last night Caryn, her daughter and some friends dropped in for a Christmas Eve Fondue party and some wonderful Christmas time together.”

Another question raised: TLC filmed this holiday gathering?!?

Hooray! This must mean Little People, Big World has not been canceled, contrary to these earlier reports.

And another question: Things between Matt and Caryn Chandler really are pretty darn serious, huh?

This has been clear for awhile now, much to the chagrin of some followers who remain aghast that Matt is dating the former manager of his farm.

Chandler and Amy know each other well and Matt’s relationship with her has been the source of some tension.

(Not that Amy was alone this Christmas. She shared the following picture of herself and boyfriend Chris Marek on Instagram in honor of the occasion.)

Finally, take a close look at the first photo in this article again.

It features Zach and Tori Roloff (and son Jackson), along with Audrey and Jeremy Roloff (and daughter Ember).

But where is Jeremy Roloff?

We mostly ask because a new rumor states that Jeremy and Audrey do not get along, possibly because of their contrasting views on religion and faith.

We hadn’t given this much thought before, but it’s true:

Go take a look through the album below, along with each of their social media feeds.

You won’t find any photos of the brother and sister together; nor any photos of Jeremy spending time with his only niece. It does make us think.

Anyway, however, this is the inspiring way Matt concluded his caption:

I realize Christmas can be a rough time for many of you. Some have lost loved ones, have no family or are just not in the spirit to celebrate… I’ve been there myself in years past.

Things do get better to those that stay strong and keep your faith. It’s my wish …And hope for you, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, or whether your feeling a bit humbug this year… that you will accept  Some love from our house to yours!

And may God bless you in 2018 and beyond!

Roloff Thanksgiving Photo Raises One MAJOR Question

The cast of Little People, Big World had a whole lot to be thankful for this year.

Over the past six months, the Roloffs have welcomed two precious and healthy babies into the world:

A boy named Jackson Kyle, welcomed by Tory and and Zach back in May; and a girl named Ember Jean, welcomed by Audrey and Jeremy in September.

Just as special for this family, nearly everyone was available for Thanksgiving on Thursday, gathering at matriarch Amy’s home for a lovely feast.

The eldest female Roloff shared the above photo on her Instagram account and included with it the caption below:

My kids. This is what I’m thankful for. Love them forever and always. So happy to have Molly in town and Joel arrives Wednesday.

Jackson is sleeping. There is always something/someone to be thankful for in our lives!

What a sweet picture, right?

No Internet user is denying that (how could they?!?), but some have analyzed Amy’s words, along with an image/caption posted by Tori, and wondered something about the TLC stars.

First, Tori’s photo:

Now, Tori’s caption:

My people… the Roloff boys really know how to pick ‘em. I love the holidays and how they bring us all together! Love you sisters and MIL! #seestorsfolife

Notice how Amy referred to everyone as her “kids?”

And how Tori used the word “sisters?”

These references have left some astute followers curious as to whether Jacob Roloff has proposed to girlfriend Isabel Rock.

Chatter over the status of these love birds has been going strong ever since Isabel said she’s facing a “life changing decision” a few weeks ago.

Considering how long these two have been together and how in love they appear to be, it wouldn’t surprise us at all if Jacob had popped the question and Tori really does have another official “sister” in the family.

(Or will in the near future, that is.)

Many Little People, Big World viewers are just happy Jacobi s back in his family’s good graces.

He was estranged for them after he quit the show last summer and accused his relative of being phony.

But he’s since admitted that was a tad bit immature and has been spending more and more time with everyone of late.

Does this mean we’ll see Jacob on future episodes of Little People, Big World?

That’s another question we can’t help but consider.

One thing is for certain:

Jackson, Tori and Zach will be on the new season.

Another thing is for certain: they are a certifiably adorable family!

The same can be said for the entire Roloff clan, really.

While you marvel over the above Thanksgiving photos, take a look at a full album of cute snapshots below!

Joy-Anna Duggar Pregnancy Raises One Huge Question

The speculation is over: Joy-Anna Duggar really is pregnant with her first child.

The 19-year old has confirmed this exciting piece of news herself, spilling a few details to People Magazine and leaving a lengthy comment on Instagram.

It's never exactly shocking when a member of the Duggar family announces she is expecting, but Joy-Anna is a teenager who only just got married in May.

For example
Say what you want about the elder Duggars, but their kids have all turned out pretty cute and stable so far, it’s true.

4. Is There a Secret?

Is there a secret
Aside from having sex with no protection, that is?

5. I Don’t Want to Be Rude, But…

I dont want to be rude but
Joy-Anna’s appearance, combined with some basic math, has raised a few questions among some supporters.

6. Did We Say "Questions?"

Did we say questions
We mean definitive statements from some who are convinced Joy-Anna and Austin got to know each other (down there!) prior to marriage.

Woman Without a Vagina Raises Funds So She Can Have Sex

In many ways, Kaylee Moats is your average 23-year old.

She hails from Arizona. She’s in a committed, long-term relationship.

And she wants to have sex with her partner.

But there’s one thing holding Moats back:

She suffers from Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser syndrome (MRKH), which means she was born without a cervix, uterus or vaginal opening.

The condition affects just one in 5,000 women and the cause is not known.

But the result unfortunately is: In short, Moats was born without a vagina.

Concerned over why she had not yet had a period at the age of 18, Moats visited a doctor at that time who ordered an MRI.

This is when she learned of her diagnosis.

Five years later, Kaylee her family have launched a GoFundMe page for surgery that would allow her to be in an intimate relationship. It would make it possible for her to engage in intercourse.

(Note: For those wondering, insurance companies refuse cover this type of surgery because they don’t consider it to be a life-saving treatment.)

Speaking to The Daily Mail, the Arizona native says she’s under no pressure at all from her boyfriend, who she met senior year of college.

“He doesn’t really focus on the sexual side of our relationship because we can’t do anything since I don’t have a vaginal opening,” the graphic designer explained.

“But I am looking forward to having a sexual relationship. I’m not sure if I want to wait until marriage, but I think having that option there is a lot more comforting.”

Down the line, Moats would love to have a family and a biological child.

“If that doesn’t work . . . because sometimes surrogacy doesn’t work, then I hope to adopt,” she told Bancroft TV.

2 women

You can contribute to Kaylee’s GoFundMe page now and you can read its description/mission statement below:

My name is Amanda Moats, and I am writing this for my sister Kaylee Moats, who has been diagnosed with a rare condition called MRKH (Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome).

We received this crushing news in the doctor’s office when she was 18 years old, after never having a menstrual period. After having a MRI completed, the doctor determined that she did not have a uterus, cervix, vagina or vaginal opening.

As you can imagine, it was hard to process all of this information and we were all heartbroken.

As a sister, there was nothing worse than getting that phone call and knowing that my sister’s dreams for her life were changed so drastically in an instant, with nothing I or anyone else could do to make it better.

Kaylee will never be able to carry her own children. The dreams we had of raising families together are going to look a little different than we had initially planned.

This diagnosis raises a lot of fears, concerns, and insecurities in Kaylee about her identity and her future.

The options of surrogacy and adoption give her some hope but she will never be able to carry her own children.

After receiving the news, she decided to focus on school and address the problem later on when she was ready.

The family is hoping to raise $ 15,000, and Kaylee’s sister concludes her post as follows:

We would be forever grateful for anything you can donate. No amount is too small.

Thank you for getting Kaylee one step closer to her goal and allowing her to have a brighter and happier future.

Did Tori Roloff Suffer a Miscarriage? New Baby Photo Raises Questions

As a lead cast member on Little People, Big World, Tori Roloff shares nearly every aspect of her life with the world.

But fans of the reality star are now wondering whether there’s a critical piece of information that Tori has withheld from even her most loyal of followers…

… did she once suffer a miscarriage?

This question has been raised due to a photo of Tori and Zach Roloff’s son that was shared this week by a fan of the beloved couple.

The image, posted by an Instagram account that labels itself “Zach & Tori Fans,” is featured below. 

It depicts little Jackson Kyle, who was born on May 12, along with a two-word caption written at the bottom of the snapshot. It reads:

Rainbow baby.

Why has this distinction generated a great deal of Internet buzz and speculation?

Because a “rainbow baby” is the term given to a child that is born after its mother has suffered a miscarriage.

Does this Instagram user know something nearly nobody else does about Tori and Zach?

Did he or she just break some very sad news to the community of Little People, Big World fans?

Or was this person simply commenting on the colorful reflection of light atop Jackson’s forehead in the cute picture above?

We’re guessing it’s the latter.

Tori and Zach have been very open about their baby since the day he was born.

They gave an extensive interview to People Magazine shortly afterward about how he was born with dwarfism and how this will present the first-time parents with a few challenges.

(Nothing they are not very up for, of course.)

Tori, Zach and other members of the family have also been excellent at posing new pictures of Jackson, practically on a daily basis.

Just consider the snapshot shared by Matt Roloff on his Facebook page over last weekend:

Meanwhile, aside from the miscarriage speculation, some fans are also curious about the state of Tori’s womb.

Could she be pregnant again? Already?!?

In celebration of her two-year anniversary with Zach, the reality star wrote the following caption on Instagram last week:

“This last year has been amazing and heart breaking all at the same time and I am so thankful for the man who stood by my side.

I am so lucky that my kids get to call you dad and even more blessed that I get to call you mine.”

What’s the big deal? Once you look past how sweet and thoughtful of a message this is?

Only that Tori used a plural word. Kids.

Was this a slip-up? Is it possible she’s pregnant just three months after welcoming her first kid into the world?

Anything is possible.

But we’re once again going to assume that this was a mere typo and excited fans of the couple are just getting ahead of themselves.

But congrats to Tori and Zach if it’s true!
