Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share First Photo of Their Baby Boy!!!

GREAT NEWS, EVERYBODY!

Really, this is just some seriously precious, absolutely adorable, 100% feel-good news.

You know how everything has been awful and sad and scary and terrible recently?

And then yesterday the royal wedding happened, and it was a nice reminder that good things can still happen, and we all enjoyed how pretty and fancy it was, and how obvious the love between Meghan and Harry was?

And then it was over, and we were like “well, time to go back to thinking about the end times”?

That’s the great news: we have an additional lovely little reminder that that things aren’t always completely horrible!

As you may know, Chrissy Teigen had her baby just a few days ago — her second child with John Legend.

She announced the big news on Twitter by simply stating “Somebody’s herrrrrrre!”, along with some baby bottle emojis.

We’d already heard that they were expecting a baby boy, but other that, we really haven’t heard any news about the new addition to the family.

… Until now, that is!

Someone asked if he looked like Luna, Chrissy and John’s first child, and she answered that they have the same nose!

“He is a few weeks early so he’s litttttttle and makes the teeniest noises,” she added. “We are in love.”

And since one of her claims to fame is oversharing, she also tweeted “I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you don’t rip to your butthole. Baby boy: 1 point. Luna: 0.”

So now we know that her second delivery went much more smoothly than her first!

But then, this afternoon, Chrissy revealed her son’s name, along with a photo of the darling little baby.

Here’s Miles Theodore Stephens:

He’s SO CUTE, right?!

His little hands, his little arms, his little face … he’s so adorable it hurts.

“Hello, world!” she wrote in her caption. “This is Miles Theodore Stephens – We are drowning in his little peeps and nuzzles.”

“Our household feels overwhelmed with love. Thank you for all your well wishes!”

And just in case you were curious, she and John really did get so, so many well wishes.

“He’s a miniature John,” one person told her. “Just needs a baby piano for those wee little fingers. Kudos on y’all’s cutie.”

Likewise, another of her followers said “He’s destined to be a soulful jazz singer with a name like that.”

Speaking of the name — Miles Theodore Stephens, once again — she’s been getting a ton of praise for the classic, not at all wacky choice.

She’s even been getting thanked for it — as one person told her, “thank you for this very normal name.”

In a world of celebrity babies with names like Sir and Apple and Chicago, Miles Theodore is actually pretty unique in its own way, right?

Congratulations again, Chrissy and John!

If you’d like to share any more photos, lots of more of little Miles, some with his big sister, really just any photos at all of your astoundingly cute family, that would be great!

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Embrace, Share Topless Photo

As of Tuesday, it has been exactly three months since Kylie welcomed her baby girl. Happy three-month “birthday,” little Stormi!

Stormi’s parents are celebrating with some skin-baring, post-baby PDA.

And Kylie opted to share this topless photo with fans. Take a look!

The photo below shows a fair amount of skin from Kylie and from Travis.

We hope that this isn’t a problem for anyone.

And, to be clear, it was shared on Instagram. As you may have guessed, nobodies flashing their tatas at millions of fans.

That would be an awkward way to celebrate your child’s three-month birthday. (No judgment if that’s how you celebrate, though)

Still, Kylie and Travis are packing on the PDA.

There’s clearly more than Stormi keeping these two young parents together.

It is, in fact, Travis who is topless, though Kylie isn’t exactly obscuring her skin.

The 20-year-old mother is sporting a nude bandeau and what we’re willing to loosely describe as “army-inspired” pants.

Travis is wearing no shirt, but he his ink to bring some variety to that bare torso.

He’s also sporting a pair of orange shorts that actually coordinate really well with the photo’s color scheme.

The overall effect is a warm, affectionate photo. It looks really romantic.

Maybe too romantic. …

Does anyone else notice that this photo has a vibe very different from a standard “our baby was born three months ago” photo?

It honestly looks more like an engagement photo.

Kylie has also been spotted wearing a diamond ring on her left ring finger recently.

This pic is just adding more fuel to the engagement speculation fire that has been blazing among fans for months and months.

Now that Kylie and Travis have probably been dating for barely over a year, some wonder if it’s time.

But now might not be time.

It might never be time, in fact. Not everyone gets married, even if they stay in a relationship with their baby daddy and have more kids with him.

You don’t have to look far to find examples of that. Kylie’s big sister Kourtney is a great example.

But even without any kind of official engagement, Travis has really stepped up to treat Kylie right.

A lot of people had been worried — we’ll be honest, we had our concerns when we saw that he continued to tour last year without acknowledging Kylie’s pregnancy in public — that Travis was going to leave Kylie.

Those fears were quashed as soon as Kylie and Travis opened up about the pregnancy.

Kylie shared a video that showed Travis attending multiple doctor’s appointments and ultrasounds with her. He was right by her side and so excited about becoming a father.

It reaffirmed some people’s belief in love.

Fans hope that, as Kylie becomes increasingly comfortable with her post-baby bod, Kylie and Travis will treat fans to more glimpses of the two of them.

They might never (will hopefully never) reach PDA levels akin to what Kylie used to show of her relationship with Tyga. …

(Ugh, remember that Snapchat video of Tyga talking excitedly about Kylie’s feet? That is never not creepy, but given how frankly Tyga talks about his foot fetish, it’s even worse in retrospect)

… But Kylie’s fans love seeing her life, her post-baby body, and her relationship with Travis.

Almost as much as they love seeing impossibly cute videos of Kylie and Stormi.

Duggar Family Shame: Church Members Share Shocking Tales of Abuse

Anyone who’s regularly watched the family’s reality shows knows that the Duggars are a deeply religious lot.

But even the most diehard Duggar fans may not know the details of the belief system that Jim Bob and Michelle have imparted to their children.

The Duggars are Independent Baptists, but they’re also members of the Institute in Basic Life Principles and the Advanced Training Institute, both founded by controversial pastor and former personal guru of the Duggars, Bill Gothard.

Back in 2015, the Josh Duggar sex scandal shined some light on the institute’s teachings and more scandalous practices.

Not only did the organization assist Josh and his parents in evading prosecution, it also justified his misconduct with homeschooling curriculum that places the blame for sexual assault squarely on the victim.

Prior to Gothard resigning in disgrace after being accused of sexual misconduct by more than 50 former employees, he presided over the organization for decades, and – according to many former members – was directly or indirectly involved in countless acts of systemized sexual assault.

Recent revelations about the Duggars and the rise of the #MeToo movement have emboldened several alleged victims to come forward with shocking accounts of the abuse they suffered under Gothard’s watchful eye.

As reported by In Touch Weekly, an anonymous Reddit used was recently at the center of one of the sites “ask me anything” or AMA sessions.

And what she had to say about her time as a member of the IBLP-ATI is likely to shock even the most strident Duggar defenders.

“I was part of a fundamentalist Christian cult known as ATI/IBLP,” the user began.

“Recent scandals have hit the news about the cult leader Bill Gothard when over 50 women came forward with allegations that he sexually harassed them. But that’s only scratching the surface.”

“Let me tell you my scariest experience — and just keep in mind, I’m far from the only one,” she continued.

“First off, throughout my childhood, my father and sisters abused me sexually. Since the cult taught a strict familial hierarchy, with the father being top dog, then mother, then children in order of birth, as the youngest I was bottom of the totem pole.

“My father would twist Bible verses to justify rape, death threats, and more. Because ATI is a homeschool cult, it was really handy to cover up the abuse from any prying eyes.

“My home was a prison for 11 years until he died of a massive heart attack. And that’s not even the scariest experience.”

The user went on to explain how the abuse worsened as a result of her mother’s continued involvement with the IBLP.

“Fast forward two years. I’m 13, with a mother who’s frantically fixated on me being a ‘troubled child’ because 1. I dared resist my father’s advances and argue against the abuse I was suffering, gaining me the reputation of ‘rebellious,’ 2. I’m severely depressed because I’m a freaking rape victim and depression is considered sin, and 3. I asked too many questions as to WHY we believed the things we believed —you don’t ask questions, needless to say.”

She then describes being shipped off to Oklahoma without warning and enrolled in the IBLP’s “Log Cabin” program, which is designed to “retrain” resistant adolescents.

“All I know is I’m about to move to Oklahoma for a while to be fixed by ‘nice counselors’ because I’m a dirty sinner,” she writes.

“For the next two years, I am tortured, brainwashed, starved, sleep-deprived, threatened with a shotgun, punished, humiliated, interrogated, and terrorized.

“I lose 40 pounds in the first month or two. They take me off my medications (believing it is wrong to take them) cold turkey; I exhibit severe symptoms of withdrawal and they go ignored.

“I am worked grueling hours, sent on aimless hikes and marches, scrubbing floors on my hands and knees until my knuckles are cracked and bleeding from the bleach, punished with hard labor until I’m near fainting,” she adds.

“They had fun coming up with new and strange ‘punishments.’”

Through it all, the victim says, she was so brainwashed she didn’t fully realize that those who imprisoned her were engaging in the most egregious forms of abuse.

It wasn’t until years later that she began to become aware that something was deeply wrong with the religion she had been raised in.

“There really wasn’t one concrete ‘oh s–t’ moment,” she explains.

“But the first time I remember thinking ‘this is BS’ was how often people would be ‘sentenced’ to hell for the most trivial reasons. Everything from an impure thought to cursing to sleeping in late.”

Amazingly, despite the high-profile nature of their lives and the zeal with which they discuss their beliefs, the Duggars have managed to avoid commenting on their continued involvement with the IBLP-ATI.

That may prove increasingly difficult as time goes on.

Or the family’s legion of devoted fans may prove willing to continue turning a blind eye to the rampant abuse within the organization.

Tori Roloff Has Some Very Exciting News to Share

Tori Roloff is ringing in the new year with a very cool announcement.

In her latest Instagram post, the Little People, Big World star surprised fans by telling them of her new business plan…

… and it sounds pretty darn exciting.

Along with the quote/photo below, Roloff shared the following caption with 636,000 fans.

“I finally opened an etsy shop!!!!! I am starting with digital files!” she said, clearly psyched about the project and adding:

“You can download and print and then frame for decorations in your home!! I will eventually be taking custom orders so please stay tuned!

“Make sure to follow @zandtcreationsbytori because that’s where I’ll be posting! I want to keep this profile for Baby j cuteness and babe uh fun!!

“Thank you guys so much for the support! I am so excited about this new adventure!!! #ZandTCreations.”

ZandTCreations, huh? We’ll start following that new account right now and we’re anxious to see what Tori comes up with going forward.

Tori r message

It will also be interesting to see how fans react to this news.

Amy Roloff has received some backlash over the past few months for often including sponsored posts on her Instagram account and/or promoting various products, even while posing with her family members.

To an even greater extent, Audrey Roloff has really heard it from critics for constantly pushing her line of clothing.

Or not just for pushing it, but for doing so while also doling out marriage advice or quoting the bible.

Will Tori see followers turn on her in a similar manner?

Up until this point, she was one of the few Roloff family members who didn’t look to monetize her social media page.

There’s nothing wrong with doing this, of course.

Heck, you could argue there’s a whole lot right about it if it means Tori will be earning money that could go toward her son’s education or even more basic needs.

We’ll be curious to see what comes of this business plan, both in terms of what Tori creates and what people say about it.

We certainly wish her the very best of luck.

She and Zach seem like a happy, loving and supportive child… and little Jackson Kyle is just SO cute.

Don’t believe us for some reason?

Kate Gosselin Dares to Share Pics of Daughters, Gets Dragged by Trolls. HARD.

Darn you, Internet.

You’ve really gone ahead and done it now.

You’ve made us feel bad for Kate Gosselin.

Over the past few weeks, hatred for the reality star and mother of eight has seemed to hit near-record numbers, as Gosselin cannot share anything online without hearing it from a bunch of trolls.

Just a few weeks ago, for example, Gosselin posted a few photos online of her kids in their Halloween costumes.

We’re pretty sure every single celebrity alive does this.

And yet followers called out Kate for the snapshots, mostly because they did not include son Collin, who has been enrolled in a program away from home for behavioral issues.

Details regarding his status remain scarce, which has prompted haters to bring up him every chance they get.

Gosselin even received backlash, as it relates to Collin, when she shared throwback photos of her twin girls on the occasion of their 17th birthday.

And now Kate has gone ahead and shared new throwback pictures, this time of daughter Alexis.

Along with the cute snapshot above, the Kate Plus 8 star wrote:

The girls and I were looking through old pics the other night together…reliving our MANY fun times over the years…

it’s cute when your teenagers screech about how cute they were and play argue over ‘who was the cutest.’

To me, they were and are all equally ‘edible’ and adorable and I told them so. They then tried to convince me to ‘eat them first’! It’s always a competition in a big family, I tell you!

Anyway, there are many, but these pics of Lex make me laugh every time I come across them! How can you not?

She’s always been the perfect dose of humor when I need it most… on this day, when she was 5, she entertained me while I showered!

Pretty basic and definitely harmless, right?

Nope, wrong apparently.

Yes, some followers showed Gosselin support and clearly appreciated this cute snapshot:

lex tweet

“She is so precious! Where did the time go?” asked another fan.

Others, however, definitely seemed to be focused on the wrong thing.

“Wait, you take your phone into the shower,” inquired a confused follower, while a second person chimed in with a similar take:

“You took your phone into the shower or bath? Um yeah ok kate.”

lex in shower

These, of course, are mostly mundane issues.

The true trolls, though, didn’t just inquire about Collin and his whereabouts.

They accused Kate of not liking her sons as much as her daughters!

For real:

where are boys?

Look, it takes a lot for us to be on Team Kate Gosselin.

We mostly see her as a greedy, self-serving and manipulative annoyance.

But come on now.

We’re not gonna pick on Kate just because she shares some precious pictures of her kids.

What’s the alternative? What else would she do on Instagram? Go all Kylie Jenner on us and pose nearly naked?

God forbid, right?

So you see: it could be a lot worse. Remember that.
