Jinger Duggar Shares New Baby Pic, Raises Concern Among Fans

Jinger Duggar g had a reason to celebrate late last week.

But the way in which this reality star did show has given followers a reason to be concerned.

Allow us to explain…

On August 19, Jinger and husband Jeremy Vuolo gave fans a glimpse at their precious first daughter, Felicity Nicole, as a way to pay tribute to her first-ever birthday.

Felicity is only a month old, but still… that counts as a birthday.

Just ask any first-time parent.

To mark the occasion, Jinger posted a few pictures of her adorable baby on Instagram.

“Felicity is one month old today!” Jinger wrote as a simple caption to the following image:

Then, on Sunday, Jinger followed up this snapshot with two more.

The first leads this article up top and features the bundle of joy outside with her proud parents.

The second inlcuded with it a caption that reads “Those eyes!” because, well… just look at those eyes on young Felicity!

All these photos represent indisputable evidence that Felicity is pretty darn happy, healthy and cute, right?

Actually, that may be wrong, some Internet users are now saying.

Indeed, while some folks out there have labeled the official one-month picture as one of the most endearing in social media history, something about Felicity’s face and skin tone have others concerned.

“Wow, she looks blue. Is she okay? Seriously. I am not trying to be critical or mean,” one fan wrote as a comment, while another remark echoed this sentiment:

“I was really alarmed when I saw this picture. She is purple, and that’s not normal. You are right to comment as you did. I hope they take her in and get her checked out.”

We don’t think these people are trying to be trolls.

They very likely have a legitimate worry (in their mind) over Felicity.

But still.

Come on now, folks!

There’s only so much you can tell by a picture and you should maybe think twice (heck, maybe even three times) before setting up such alarms online.

As another follower put it well, chill out with the “scary, negative speculation,” okay?!?

The Vuolos, of course, live in Laredo, Texas, making Jinger the first Duggar sibling to relocate outside of Tontitown, Arkansas permanently.

Upon becoming a father for the first time, Jeremy gushed back in mid-July:

“God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.

“Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well.

“We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

As for why they chose Felicity as their chilld’s name? We’ll go ahead and let Jinger explain!

Demi Lovato Fires Manager, Raises Concerns About Sobriety

Demi Lovato may have just given fans yet another cause for concern.

Just a few weeks after the beloved singer admitted to having relapsed, following six-plus years of sobriety, Lovato has gone ahead and taken an unexpected step in her professional life.

According to Radar Online, Lovato just fired her long-time manager, Phil McIntyre, doing so “in the middle of her tour” because, this insider says, “she wanted to go in a different direction and decided to completely severe ties with him.”

This move could be interpreted in multiple ways, of course.

It may be a sign that Demi’s downward spiral is not over yet.

McIntyre has been by Lovato’s side for a lengthy period of time, overseeing a very successful music career, making many wonder why the artist would choose the aforementioned different direction.

Hadn’t her career under McIntyre been headed in a very positive one?

But there’s a flip side to this decision, as well. There’s a more positive way to look at Demi’s move.

She clearly laments having fallen off the wagon and, we sincerely hope, is looking to get right back on it again.

She wants to live a clean life and is “focused on surrounding herself with positivity and accountability,” as the Radar Online source describes it.

Neither Lovato nor McIntyre has acknowledged the rumors of their split, but it comes not long after Lovato also cut ties with her rehabilitation and recovery business, CAST Center.

“They are in a bitter dispute over money and branding,” a source told Radar.

Darn. This makes us feel terrible for Lovato.

It can’t be easy to rebuild one’s personal life when one’s professional life is also a mess.

In June, Lovato released “Sober,” a heartbreaking singler featuring lyrics that seemed to confirm that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.

“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore/And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor/To the ones who never left me/We’ve been down this road before/ I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore,” she sings on the track.

Heartbreaking, isn’t it?

No one can almost ever say for certain what causes an addict to revert to his or her old and dangerous ways.

But reports indicated that Lovato fell into trouble once again about two months ago.

“She stopped the accountability portion of her recovery,” is how one person explained it, with another going so far as to say Lovato “fell off the rails.”

We also heard late last month that Demi started drinking again, not doing drugs, which is maybe a silver lining.

As Lovato has openly discussed in the past, she was into cocaine and other hard drugs during her teenage years.

We can only sit back now and wish Lovato the best.

We hope she has the proper support system in place and we hope she knows how much we love and admire her.

Jon Gosselin Shares Rare Photo of Son, Raises Many Questions

Did Jon Gosselin just hurl some very passive aggressive shade in the direction of his ex-wife?

Or did the controversial former reality star simply give fans an update for which they’ve been clamoring?

These questions have been raised and are now being debated by social media users across the Internet after Gosselin posted a photo on Instagram of his son Collin.

He did so in celebration of the young man turning 14 years old.

“Glad I could celebrate my son Collin’s 14th birthday with him and his sister!” wrote Jon as a caption to the image below, which has generated its fair share of chatter in response.

For what reason?

Jon and Kate Gosselin have seemingly gone out of their way to hide Collin from the public for a very long time now.

Kate has even gotten into a great deal of hot water over sharing many pictures of her other seven kids, and even throwing them parties, without including Collin.

Moreover, neither Jon nor Kate ever really mention Collin at all.

The latter has even been accused of lying about her child’s whereabouts.

In September of 2016, a letter Kate penned to Collin from her memoir went viral.

In this message, Kate revealed that he was being sent away to the program for children with special needs.

She said at the time that her won was “sweet, kind and helpful” but tended to act out, explaining as follows:

“As you have grown, however, I must say you have also challenged my authority greatly.

At two and a half, you began testing and trying my parenting at every chance. I called Daddy at work many days crying because you would not obey…

“As you have grown, this has not changed. You continue to be determined to do what you want to do, and I continue to try to rein you in.”

Needless to say, Gosselin earned some major backlash for taking such issues and complaints public.

So we’re at least very happy here to see that Collin appears to be happy and healthy.

We’re left to wonder, though, just why Jon posted this image.

Is he shading Kate, using Collin against her in some way to prove that he cares more about the child than Kate has appeared to.

This Instagram snapshot, after all, was published just days after a report that detailed how Jon and Kate still hate each other. A lot.

It also came on the heels of Jon sharing an image of himself and daughter Hannah, making it look for once as if he’s actually a caring dad.

Check it out here:

“I don’t know what’s going on. The whole point is I’m left in the dark. There’s no explanation. It’s disheartening,” Jon told Us Weekly in Januaey of 2016, adding:

“I don’t ever see Collin, ever. Not off the bus because he doesn’t go to school. Not at the gate because he doesn’t come down. Nothing.

“I am totally estranged from Collin because of Kate.”

Will the feud between these two ever end?

It doesn’t seem that way.

In honor of her sextuplets turnign 14 last week, Kate wrote the following:

Happy 14th Birthday, my ‘babies’. 14 years ago almost to the minute, I was in my wheelchair, making my way around the ENTIRE NICU, meeting each of you face to face for the very first time.

I’ll never forget how tiny yet perfect each of you were.

I’ll never forget our first ‘birth day’ together……this day remains one of the best in my life…. and 14 years later, I love you 400 times as much, if that’s even possible! H

appy birthday, my babies! Here’s to many more birthdays together!!

I love you forever and always, no matter what! #Turning14 #ProudMomma #TheYearOfIphones.

We wish these exes could work out their issues in private, but that has never been their way.

Kate has even signed on to star in a new TLC dating show, which at least a few people out there will probably watch for some reason.

Overall, however, we simply wish the best for Collin and all his siblings.

May they find peace amidst their parents’ never-ending war.

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!
